Meno, because he has a good understanding of people, and he knows how to respond to people with humor, sensitivity and intelligence. He also refrains from personal attacks or getting emotional about things except when he thinks it’s really called for.October 6, 2016 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #1185640👑RebYidd23Participant

Charlie’s to the left of Bernie Sanders.October 6, 2016 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #1185644gofishMember
I actually find many of Charlie’s positions to be centrist.
Care to show which of his opinions or stances are to the left of Bernie?October 6, 2016 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1185645

I think having a Jewish president would be very bad for the Jews. Any goyim in the CR?October 6, 2016 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #1185654
All of the women.October 6, 2016 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #1185655
“I think having a Jewish president would be very bad for the Jews”
So let’s vote for positions in the Knesset instead. Those are more interesting anyhow. Who wants to be the President of a goyish country anyhow?
Who should be the Minister of Religious Affairs? And who should get the Education ministry? Prime Minister? President?October 6, 2016 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm #1185656
The State of Israel is not a Jewish country.October 6, 2016 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #1185657
The State of Israel is not a country. Eretz Yisrael is a country and it is a Jewish country.
I don’t recognize the State either, but according to most Gedolim, it is better to have Frum people in the government.October 6, 2016 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #1185658
The Knesset is an organ of the state government that is not Jewish. Rav Elyashiv stated that the Knesset is a bais minus, a place of heresy, and thus all the halachos regarding places of apikorsus applies there as well. The only reason the gedolim permit frum MKs is to reduce the harm to the Bnei Torah tzibbur. But even that, they acknowledge, is a b’dieved that is only done due to lack of alternative.October 7, 2016 12:39 am at 12:39 am #1185659
Joseph, nothing you wrote is a stira to anything I wrote, so I’m not sure what your point is.October 7, 2016 12:51 am at 12:51 am #1185660SparklyMember

What is the source for Rav Elyashiv stating that the Knesset is a bais minus? Thanks.October 7, 2016 1:22 am at 1:22 am #1185662
Rav Eliashev stated that publicly in his daily shiur in his beis medrash, the audio of which is available online. (Google: Rav Yosef Elyashev kenesset minus)October 7, 2016 8:57 am at 8:57 am #1185664Person1Member
LU thank you! I was just going to suggest the same thing, because I know very little about the american goverment system.
So here’s my list. Please don’t be offended, these are just steryotypes and of course they don’t reflect your whole personality in real life or as it’s expressed here.
Ministry of Defense: Syag Lechochma (because we need someone strong).
Ministry of Education: lilmod ulelamaid.
Ministry of Religous Affairs: Joseph.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Meno (because he’ll be able to make fun of them without them knowing it)
I’ll try to think of more.October 7, 2016 12:44 pm at 12:44 pm #1185665
“Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Meno (because he’ll be able to make fun of them without them knowing it)” – lol, very true.
I like the Israeli one much better because I also know more about it. Of course, it helps that you don’t have to be too brilliant to know what things mean from their names (Religious Affairs, Education, etc.)October 7, 2016 12:52 pm at 12:52 pm #1185666
Thanks for the nomination, Person1! I’d much rather be the Minister of Education than the First Lady. All being a First Lady means is that you “get” to be married to the President, and most presidents do not exactly have the qualities I am looking for in a husband – quite the opposite actually!!
Now we have to figure out a Ministry for you.October 8, 2016 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1185667
“Ministry of Religous Affairs: Joseph.”
Joe won’t agree to be part of the government – he’s too much of a Brisker.
