    statistically, (i just googled it) 70% of lottery winners go broke.
    Jewish people are normally more financially successful than average, so wouldn’t most of the people in the CR have at least a 60% chance of having a nice post lottery life?

    000646,
    You seem to believe that a one arab state solution is the best, however there will be an easily understandable consequence for Israel if this happens- simply the new citizens now have access to the weapons and facilities of the country formerly known as Israel, and there will be 6.5 million Jews killed in a second holocaust.
    f you want a two state solution, the population of the landmass of Israel just doubled, who’s paying the trillions of dollars for infrastructure?

    646,
    the Fakestanians have gaza which was given (maybe back to them, i don’t know) to them by israel to create peace as part of a deal, look what happened- terrorist attacks every day, intense rocket fire on and off. If you give them even more land why will it be any different than what happened to gaza?
    Also the Fakestanians don’t want a two state solution as proven by the fact that they chant “from the river to the sea”- that means the entire israel, not half!

    If we do a one or even two state solution, the population of the land mass of Israel will double, who’s paying the trillions of dollars for brand new cities and infrastructure?

    And also if you think Israel should kill all Palestinians the “goyish college liberal” is probably right that you’re evil. I don’t believe even 75% of Palestinians are all into terrorism or there would have been 4 million at the Friday protests, not just a couple thousand.

    Not that i think the Israeli cops are always right, but there has to be someway to maintain order in the streets without the goverment giving each segment of the public exactly what they want.

    JNN,

    yes, but if the state which beats up religious jews would go kaput, so would all the religious jews who they beat up.
    Ever thought of that?
    besides, when there was a video of that chossid from an illegal hachnosas sefer torah, the cops arrested beat up the chossid and i don’t think anyone would say the cops are wrong.

    I don’t think Trump is actually moshiach as I’ve always imagined moshiach as bieng jewish. However it would seem to be obvious that he is a shliach from hashem to put the world in the matzav of mashiach.

    Trump Fan,
    Because if you did that in the US, there would be no time for the forty years of legal process which is in the constitution. (court case, appeals.)

    Redleg,
    I have to assume you didn’t notice that I corrected myself to say “to any position with the power to introduce laws”.
    And I’m not sure what your point was by saying the current gun laws, please explain.

    Jersey Jew,

    I don’t understand, so if I take a rabbit and torture it every day and people stand there protesting, it’s not a chillul hashem because ” Just because someone doesn’t like it. doesn’t make it a chilul HaShem.”?-so then what is a chillul hashem?

    And just because you think they don’t really care about the chicken, it’s not a chillul hashem to those who see the protest on TV and do care about the chicken.

    “Used to be shameful to use items Made in Germany or Poland this atmosphere is almost lost.”
    Doesn’t show anything, the entire thread is to whether or not that atmosphere made sense.

    “No one would get jobs.”
    people need more than basic necessities.

    “once an individual has a minimal level of income, they decide to work less.”
    if they wanted a comfortable life style they would need to earn at least as much as the value of the benefits. therefore they would still try to earn more than the income limit thereby being removed from the benefits.

    It would work better than universal income because there are much lower income limits.

    “If the world realizes that tefillin is made of real leather.”
    “Bris Mila is another chillul Hashem.”
    you simply attacked me without even trying to understand what I meant.
    when I said “another halachacly equal to chicken solution for kaparos” I very obviously meant only if we can replace it, as opposed to bris and tefillin.

    To all those who said there is no chilul hashem to the protesters, that may be, but there is a chilul hashem to those who hear about the protests. and even if elsewhere is a bigger chilul hashem, here can still be one also.

    “That applies to all presidents, Not just trump.”
    That may be, but i do believe trump is a much bigger risk and would go a lot farther than any past president (maybe besides Obama) as they used to be honorable.

    “america=NK2.0”
    when i said that I didn’t mean at all in the ecomonic area as he does really care about the welfare of the country(I think Kim also does).
    However he would abolish a large part of free speech-mainly saying bad about him-as we see from the way he reacts when someone does whether its true or not.

    “the power of the courts”
    I meant the ppower of the supreme cort to abolish his would be laws.

    And by the way he would be doing it because 1)he enjoys being in control
    and 2)because he believes he can lead the country in the right direction if he had full control.

    “Wow, I didn’t know dumbocrats are as dumb as people say they are”
    I do believe trump is an extremely good pres for the USA. however i also realize that he is a bigot and left with to much power he would turn into a disaster. (for example, saying the writer of the NYT letter is guilty of treason and is a threat to national security)
    such things must be carefully balanced.

    “We should eliminate presidential term limits so that The Donald can remain in office for a third term.”
    That’s exactly what he wants- to be a dictator, next step he abolishes presidential voting, then goes congress, then the power of the courts. And BOOM america=NK2.0.
    while he may be a smart man no one can stay sane if in power without proper constraints. in fact this is exactly how Erdogan of Turkey gained absolute power.

    your Toyota: it’s Japanese and if not for japan the Germans wouldn’t have gotten so far.-half of Lakewood has a Camry and Sienna.

    if using German stuff for your benefit, who cares who made it? yes even if it’s amalek!
    what exactly is the problem?
    will you not use something made in Europe, Russia, or the middle east because they formerly or currently had or have anti-Semitic issues. you could live in the elements and starve but most other people would rather not.

    The sephardim sing by their selichos, and they are considered to have the best mesorah. so when nusach ashkenaz and sephard begin to sing, they are simply returning to the mesorah.
    As an aside i know a sephardic bachur who came to his ashkenazi yeshiva’s selichos and said the sephardic version is much easier to push himself to come as it is more enjoyable.
    so why don’t we all just leave each other alone?

    uniteds airlines policy was that you get compensation for canceled flights but not for delayed flights.
