I fully understand and just having some fun. I said before I have to meet her Rabbi. If he will give me an exemption to be able to eat lobster I would sign up tomorrow.  :)
My halachic ruling is that you may eat lobster.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Can we please focus on the book?

Who wants to talk about the rasha'nalists.
It's not about them this time.

LOL! I never heard that before. You crack me up, CBC. High five.

According to DJT they'll all (children and grandchildren) be staying in the White House Friday night.  I can't imagine the White House is Shabbos proof.

makes sense to stay there. That's probably one of the most genuine and kept up pre-1800 buildings in the USA.

Their private residence rooms and wings can mostly be manual lock and key. They are 100% permitted to allow the doorman to walk them in and out from indoors to outdoors, and vice versa.

The one issue on Shabbos that is unavoidable are the dozens of security cameras. Guess what: Almost all Chabad Houses and shuls, schools (they hold Shabbat services and programs in many cities), and private cameras on the residential streets have these running 24/7. They are everywhere... Same here.

It's on the previous page! Just click back. But here, I'll save you the effort.

Right, my question was in agreement with and a direct response to that. Maybe I'm too dense to understand.

The rambam was a rationalist as well.  Not bad company.
Right. - He was a modern orthodox rational physician who participated in art and culture, as well as writing the Rambam.

Do realize how totally insane this is? I bet you don't. How sad.

What about someone turning a light on or off in a room they are in. Does that cause a problem?

There are plenty of shabbos goys around though.

So just take my Chinese finger trap analogy and flip it. (They had those in ZA growing up?)

How about Lawry's Prime Rib or is that pushing it.  :)
Note to self: make reservations for Lawry's as it has been months.

What about someone turning a light on or off in a room they are in. Does that cause a problem?

someone else is allowed to turn on and off lights, to wash the dishes, etc... Especially if they are not directly requesting them to do so.

(Ideal if this is not done in public, and also people are not allowed to cook for them. Almost all other "shabbos work" can be done for them by other people. The spirit of Shabbos is what can be at question, here -- however outright law would say that it's better to stay at the White House overnight than to drive home/be driven home.

Of course if a new unexpected, unplanned emergency suddenly came up, then they could drive/be driven, if needed. (That would apply to the Rabbi, as well.)

-1
it is allowed in most cases if the person doing it is not jewish and if nobody specifically asked them to do it.
