"After the earnings report, executives worked to explain the potential of Facebook’s other properties, not just the main social network, to fuel growth. The company owns three other properties with more than 1 billion users: WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. Together, the entire Facebook suite of products has 2.5 billion unique monthly users, the company disclosed for the first time."

2.5 billion!!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I remember clearly when this happened. Must of been mentioned on DDF somewhere though I cannot find the thread.

AA was stingy as ever with seats on transcon flights and with AS/VX merger, they were flooded with availability on all ex-VX routes.

Why didn't he just get a permit?
From the Organizer of the Event- Klal Yisrael is facing a great challenge today - the anti-semitism we have faced and the oppression we are facing now all stems from an anti Semitic comment made by Town Supervisor Ed Sykes after Ian Leifer received permission to host this event from the building inspector Jim McElroy. Ed Sykes said after permission was granted by the building inspector - “You must have thumbed your nose at the town because you are Jewish” - the ensuing lawsuit resulted because of Ed Sykes anti-Semitic comment- he is behind all of the harassment and legal affairs. It is times like this, that Klal Yisrael needs to unite for social justice against corruption and the enemies of the Jewish people. We ARE moving forward with the event - and have alternative parking alongside the road at 341 Swiss Hill Road North, Jeffersonville, NY 12748. Additional alternative parking is being obtained - and we are asking all guests to come and take part in the event in protest of the injustice that has come upon us. If not now, when? When the Jewish people forgo their doubts and stand up for truth - HaShem is with them. We are Am Yisrael - and it is moments like these that define who we are as a people. All aspects of the event are in place and will move forward as planned - the only thing we are
missing is your presence here, and your support. There are already 100 people+ here that are taking a stand - will you be part of this cause? We need YOU and the event will go on with you. Three holy tzaddikim in our time have all urged us to go forward with this event - Come now- the catered food will be here as planned, all services and all acts will take place as planned. COME- they can try to hurt the few, but they cannot the many. We have overwhelming support and many more people are coming now then ever before to stand up for our right to celebrate our love for G-d. Stay alert to our posts - we will keep you updated.

So he blames it on anti-Semitism. Why doesn't he follow the law and get a permit?

This morning my local grocery store ran out of milk. I issued the following statement:

Klal Yisrael is facing a great challenge today - the anti-semitism we have faced and the oppression we are facing now all stems from an anti Semitic comment made by the store owner, <Name redacted> after Yehuda57  received assurances there would be milk from the manager, <name redacted>. After the assurance was given, he said, "He must not have seen our stock fridge." It is times like this, that Klal Yisrael needs to unite for social justice against corruption and the enemies of the Jewish people. We ARE moving forward with breakfast and have alternative almond milk. Additional alternative milk is being obtained from the grocery store across the street which Yehuda57 was too lazy to guy buy initially. We are asking all guests to come and take part in the breakfast in protest of the injustice that has come upon us. If not now, when? When the Jewish people forgo their doubts and stand up for truth - HaShem is with them. We are Am Yisrael - and it is moments like these that define who we are as a people. All aspects of the breakfast are in place and will move forward as planned - the only thing we are missing is your presence here, and your support. There are already 100 people+ here that are taking a stand - will you be part of this cause? We need YOU and the breakfast will go on with you. Three holy tzaddikim in our time have all urged us to go forward with this event - Come now- the cereal will be here as planned, all services and all acts will take place as planned. COME- they can try to hurt the few, but they cannot the many. We have overwhelming support and many more people are coming now then ever before to stand up for our right to celebrate our love for G-d. Stay alert to our posts - we will keep you updated.

UPDATE 12:00PM ET:Ian Leifer now claims this is “Anti-Semitism” and that “Klal Yisrael is facing a great challenge today”. The post goes on to say that “three (unnamed) holy tzaddikim (righteous men) in our time have all urged us to go forward with this event”.

The Facebook post does not mention if these three Tzadikim were asked about anything else regarding the event. 🙃

Dear guests of The Camping Trip 2018,
This message is coming from Chani Halberstam and Yehudis (Jude) Keller, the organizers of this event. We decided to be completely transparent with you as to what happened on Friday, July 27. Here is a little background:
Three weeks ago, we got called to help plan the event. We knew there were legal struggles, but were assured that permits were being finalized and that The Camping Trip would legally operate. Those legal things were never taken care of. Permits were not issued, and the property owner was prohibited from any musical production, food vending, ticket selling, promoting, or mass parking on his property. This was a Supreme Court Order, and the property owner chose not to tell us, the event organizers, or anyone else that the event was illegal. There is no money for refunds, or to pay artists, vendors, and staff who were lied to.
We are so sorry. We promoted this event. We sold you expensive tickets. We hired you. We promised you The Camping Trip Shabbat and music festival. We are so sorry this happened to you.
This is the end of The Camping Trip. Thank you for being supportive throughout the years and giving it a legacy. The Camping Trip’s goal was to bring Jews together for a beautiful Shabbat and music experience.
Thank you and we hope you understand.
