charlie – I always had a lot of respect for you and valued your comments and posts. Recently tho, I am floored at how uninformed and unintelligent your posting has become.
No matter how you feel about trump and all he does, just stick to the facts. You are too intelligent to start blaming a pandemic and 120,000 deaths on him. Someone of your caliber who understands how chaotic the first months of this virus were, how uninformed the doctors were, how many fatal mistakes they made, how much out of anyones hands it is to force people to stick to the rules… oh please. No matter what he could have done or not done, it is beneath you to pretend that we could have stopped this virus, or more recently that the democratic party allowing for, joining and condoning outdoor rallies had nothing to do with the spin out of this pandemic. Those of us who played by the rules virtually gave up when we saw that the mayors were hypocrits and liars, assuming that if they are lying about this, perhaps they are lying about all of the precautions. And that impact on the genreal public was something that could have been prevented.
Acting like a monday morning quarterback and pretending you don’t understand the science of a pandemic, specifically this pandemic, just makes me wonder if you have had a break down ch”v, or if I just never knew enough about your topics to have caught on earlier.June 30, 2020 12:18 pm at 12:18 pm #1878124Someone in MonseyParticipant
Buying land or property in Israel is the single best long-term investment in the world. Should you buy property in America? Probably, if it’s appropriate in your life. Some traditional higher-end markets may be in for a rough ride, however, like California and New York. Their tax bases are shrinking, which will spur tax increases, and the push to defund police departments will certainly degrade quality of life and thus property values.June 30, 2020 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #1878191

It’s Futile to argue with your point, because of your Dislike – THAT you have about Republicans.
But I’ll respond like THIS:

I do not get the ‘it is not Trump’s fault’ slogan. This is what he was elected for. To be a different way of doing things. Nobody thought in 2016 that he would be capable of bringing together the country in the face of a major crisis. And in 2020 he showed almost zero interest in becoming that kind of leader. The USA being hit harder than any other country, is entirely because of a lack of federal initiative. Which is a hallmark of this Presidency. [I have no problem if you voted for him because he would do things his way. Just admit that he is not the guy to handle a major crises. Someone else could have handled the pandemic. Nobody in The White House stepped up.]
To say it is not his fault, is like saying an evil murderer is not at fault because he is evil. Trump realizes and utilizes his strengths very well. He does not compensate or acknowledge his shortcomings. [This was known about him when he was a serious candidate of the reform party.] i do not care for Mr. Biden. The number one issue is not who wins the election. It is when will we stop this pandemic. America’s (financial) future hinges on it. The rest of the world stands in disbelief.July 1, 2020 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm #1878587
“I do not get the ‘it is not Trump’s fault’ slogan.”
I do not get the ‘im well versed in pandemics and have analyzed all the information that was available from WHO and the CDC so i can confidently declare who is to blame for the spread of this virus and number of deaths” slogan
The rest of the post is just too hard to respond to specifically. It just makes no sense overall.July 1, 2020 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #1878636

I object to the OP’s premise about ‘investing in America’
How long before we have to move to EY
Should we rent in USA and buy in EY………………………………
I don’t consider buy a piece of property as investing in a country. You are investing in the real estate. Governments come and go, the land remains forever.
To quote a currently controversial piece of American culture, Gone With The Wind:
“Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin’ for, worth fightin’ for, worth dyin’ for, because it’s the only thing that lasts.”
My investment in America is my participation in elections and politics. It is not my purchases and holdings of real estate (which I have in multiple countries).
The investment in a home for your family (as opposed to continuing to pay rent), is generally an investment in your family and its future security. No longer at the mercy of landlords and rent increases, etc.
That is the same no matter where in the world you live.July 3, 2020 12:16 am at 12:16 am #1879118
If you buy a house somewhere you usually hope it’s going to be safe for a while and that the value of your home won’t go down. It’s not a direct investment in America but you’re putting your hopes in it. How many Jews in Germany had their homes seized? Throughout the Diaspora, when jews had to run out of a country many had to sell their valuables for a pittance. Now with democrats making cities like new york city, chicago, and Los Angeles less safe, how long do jew have left in America? Jews can move to places that don’t want to destroy the police, but you’d have to set up yeshivas and shuls – it would take a big effort.July 4, 2020 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #1879422GadolhadorahParticipant
From a purely financial return perspective purchasing Israeli bonds are a much better “investment” than U.S. Savings Bonds. From the perspective of yidden, its a no-brainer.July 5, 2020 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1879623Ben LeviParticipant
There are several facts not being reported at all.
In President Trumps speech at Mt Rushmore on the 4th he specifically call for a country where each and every American has the same opportunities regardless of color, creed, or religion.
This was not a throw away line but a central part of his speech.
If you do not believe me you can look up the actual speech and listen to it.
Throughout his Presidency he has made it a point of reaching out to the African-American community in ways no Republican has done before.
He has acknowledged the atrocious living conditions of many African-American communities and has called it a disgrace to America, he has done this at the most high profile events possible.
His inauguration and State of the Union.
He has addressed the high incarceration rates of the African American community by backing a Criminal Justice billed aimed at reducing them.
He has tried to further educational opportunities by increasing funding to historically black colleges to unprecedented heights.
He has partnered with Sen. Tim Scott to increase opportunity zones in order to increase Black employment.
Pres. Trump has a multi-year record of speaking out for the African-American community and actually delivering them.
And he has shown results.
Before the Pandemic hit black unemployment was at historic lows and the so-called inequality gap was actually closing.
So that begs the question.
Why do Mainstream Media figures assist the Democratic party in deliberately twisting what he says.
Why Do Mainstream Media figures assist the Democratic party in dividing the nation by deliberately avoiding
the fact that the Republican President has reached out to the black community in unprecedented ways.
Why do they continue to ignore his record?
I suspect that the reason is that they saw his poll numbers were up in the black community, they saw that he was beginning to make inroads, they saw that he was actually delivering for them.
And if they lose them they lose all power and they value Power above all else.
So they deliberately must do all they could to lie about Pres. Trump and portray him as a racist in order to maintain their power and if the country suffers as a result?
Well they have never much cared about the country.July 5, 2020 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm #1879836CTLAWYERParticipant
