LMS - Last Man Standing.. Not FMS (First Man Standing) - This game is for night time only, not morning, afternoon, or evening.. NIGHT TIME ONLY!!

At night while most of the world is sleeping there are some members which are looking to socialize since they have no one else to speak to; they play a really exciting and fun game which basically every couple minutes you write a comment, the comments range from standing to sleeping, from young grasshoppers to old grasshoppers. it usually begins around 1:00 am EDT

RULES OF THE GAME:

1) Game starts at 1am Eastern, 12am Central, 11pm mountain, 10pm pacific... You get the point.
2) Anyone can call a roll call, just make a reply with "Roll Call". The roll call must be readable to the naked eye.
3) No more than one roll call every thirty minutes.
4) You have 30 minutes to respond to the roll call to stay active.
5) To respond to a roll call just post a reply with "Here" or "y y y"
6) If after one hour there are no more "Roll Calls" or "Heres", then the last person to post correctly either by calling a roll call or with a reply of "here" is declared winner of LMS.
7)You must have been awake for at least 12 hours before making or answering a RC.



OR IN SHORT:

When someone calls for a roll call. No more than one every 30 minutes and you have 30 minutes to respond "Here".

ďIt is not our intention to impose our religious views on others.
Classic saying one thing but mean another.

If they truly believe that then they should try and get more religious protections instead of trying to kill the bill. What protections would they need to support this bill?

They were not for overturning RvW?
They were very nuanced about it and didn't really advocate for it. They expressed concern about overboard restrictions etc.

They submitted a number of amicus briefs to overturn it.
My understanding is though that itís more about the imperative to assert Jewish values, and they do not think it has any real effect on the courtís decision.

https://traditiononline.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Symposium.pdf
But there are also many issues in which our communityís tangible interests are at best negligible or indirect, and where the importance of our active involvement may be less readily apparent. These include several controversial social and moral issues where, as in the case of abortion, the liberal or libertarian position may not coincide with Torah values but in no way inhibits our ability to lead Torah-true lifestyles; and where, again as in the case of abortion, any contribution we may make
to the broad national debate is unlikely to turn the tide in any event. To what extent, if at all, should we inject ourselves into the national dialogue over such issues?

From Agudath Israelís perspective, at least, the answer may well depend on the extent to which our co-religionists enter the public fray, purporting to speak under the banner of Judaism while in fact misrepre- senting our religious faith. When they do, then our responsibility to speak out extends beyond whatever role we may have to serve as an or la-goyy- im, a light unto the nations, and requires us affirmatively to dispel the darkness unfortunately created by our own wayward Jewish brethren. Hence the need to speak out on abortion.

Or, to take another prominent example, when non-Orthodox groups file amicus curiae briefs urging civil recognition of same-sex ďmarriages,Ē and when Reform Jewish leaders adduce support for such unions in explicitly religious terms by sophistic citation of biblical sources showing that all human beings are created in the Divine image, it becomes incumbent on the Orthodox community to point out that Leviticus is part of the Jewish Bible too. The joint amicus curiae brief recently filed by Agudath Israel and the Orthodox Union defending the traditional definition of marriage in the Supreme Court of Massachusetts is one way of discharging that responsibility.

In getting involved in these issues, our goal is not so much to influ- ence the outcome of the debate as it is simply to speak the truth. Our target audience is not so much the policy decision-makers themselves, as it is the broad public whose understanding of Judaism would other- wise be shaped by the falsifiers of our faith. What needs to be protected is not so much the rights of the unborn or the traditional definition of marriage, as it is the integrity of Torah and the honor of Heaven. From this perspective, it is more important that our amicus curiae presenta- tion in a case like Webster be cited by The New York Times than by the Supreme Court itself, that our congressional testimony in support of the Defense of Marriage Act be televised on C-Span than capture the attention of the bored-looking Senators conducting the hearing.

I do not know what you mean. They made the case multiple times that Roe was deeply flawed, should be overturned, while stressing the need for broad religious exceptions.

So they wanted a different version of RvW?

Sounds very similar to rubashkin. What is considered average for this type of bank fraud?
Similar as they were exploiting their children?  ;)
Seems in line with what they did.

I just mean falsifying income to get credit. What's the a normal sentence for someone convicted of that? This seems to bring out the unfairness of getting a 27 year sentence

Going to guess it depends on the amount and number of banks/people involved.

Maybe this was a factor "86 counts of financial wrongdoing"?

Wasn't the case by Rubashkin that he defaulted on the loan because the government shut down his factory for reasons he was later cleared of?

27 million (one year per million)

I might do one year for a million but no way 27 for 27.

@Dan I just had a very similar experience to yours with amazing last-minute value from mileage.

A relative passed away today in Montreal, and I needed flights from YYZ-YUL tomorrow for a few family members. Cash fares for the flights that we needed were $582 (usd) per person round trip, AC had availability at 21.2k+$67, but LifeMiles was only 12k+$80. Transferred from Cap1 and booked less than an hour before the 24hr cutoff to book with LM. Total value from LM was 4.2 cents/point.
