    -isn’t that before Torah was written?

    If those dates are accurate, it could precede Hashem’s giving of the Torah to Moses. But I don’t know if the Vedas actually existed then. Even if there’s “proof” they did, that could be part of the stuff Hashem does to test our faith, like dinosaur fossils.

    I practice yoga for the physical benefits (mainly joint mobility). I’m not interested in the philosophical side of it, but I’ve been exposed to a little of it in learning yoga, The oldest documents are apparently the Vedas, which were supposedly written 1500–1200 BCE.

    If they are so sure that Trump is disliked by the masses and doesn’t deserve to be president, why must they find every way to besmirch him and terrorize him into staying away?

    Saying that he’s disliked by the masses is propaganda. It’s a classic example of The Big Lie. They keep repeating it with the hope that people will eventually believe it.

    What are the pros and cons between Waze and Google Maps?

    One advantage of Waze is that it’s more specific about telling you which lane to use, for example when you have to make a left turn, and then a right turn after a short distance.

    Actually they are not affiliated with reform at all, they are Cosmic Jewish whatever that is supposed to mean.

    Thanks, I had been looking at the web site of another congregation that has the same name.

    The web site of the congregation that’s filing the lawsuit doesn’t say “Reform”, but the policies look the same.

    Once I asked a rabbi a related question, and he replied that there’s nothing wrong with wealth so long as you acknowledge that it comes from Hashem. I guess you could twist that around and say that if you’re wealthy, Hashem must approve of you; otherwise, you wouldn’t be wealthy.

    A shortage in baby formula.

    This is in line with the leftists’ agenda and methodology.

    They hate fossil fuel, so they stop development of pipelines and oil drilling, and make the prices high to discourage people from using fossil fuel.

    They want unrestricted abortion-on-demand, so they create a baby formula shortage to make babies impractical so that people will be motivated to kill them.

    There have been plenty of totalitarian regimes that actively tried to limit free speech that are/were not Communist, the Third Reich for example…they actively persecuted Communists,

    So the Democratic Party is like the nazis, rather than the communists?

    The Biden Administration is not one and the same as the Democratic Party.

    And it’s only a coincidence that Biden was their candidate?

    Guess it doesn’t serve as the public town square in my town.

    I don’t have a Twitter account. Once in a while I’ll read a “tweet” that’s referenced in a news article.

    The issue is whether Twitter has a significant effect on national/state/local elections or governmental decision making, directly or indirectly.

    With Elon closing in on acquiring all of twitter, how will Democrats deal with losing their biggest and most powerful propaganda weapon?

    They’ll attempt to “cancel” Twitter. The leftist media will ignore it, ridicule anyone who uses it, and use all their influence to get people to use a different place for expressing their deranged viewpoints.

    Which political party uses the term “peaceful protest” to describe rioting, looting, burning and other mob violence?

    Which political party lets violent criminals out of prison because cash bail is “unfair” to poor people?

    Which political party supports “defunding” the police?

    Which political party considers it racist if the proportion of black people arrested is greater than the number of white people arrested, even though black people commit far more crimes of violence than white people?

    “If Trump and DeSantis both run…”

    That would be a tough decision. As a Florida resident, I think DeSantis is an outstanding Governor and I wouldn’t want to lose him. But assuming that he’s re-elected as Governor in 2022, then being elected as President in 2024 would only affect the last two years of his second term as Governor. He couldn’t serve a third consecutive term.

    I fully support Trump. I voted for him in 2020, and I would vote for him in the future. He’s was the best President the U.S. has had in a long time.

    But if the mobs of ignorant, irrational Trump-haters are keeping the Democrats in power, maybe Trump should step aside and turn the reins of the Republican party over to someone else who’s more palatable to the voters.

    “It is a democracy since people are the deciding factor as to which party should be in control.”

    Also, that assumes that elections are fair and impartial. That’s not the case when voters are not required to properly identify themselves as registered voters when casting ballots. That’s not the case when ballots are mass-mailed to the population and insufficient measures are taken to authenticate the ballots. And that’s not the case when millions of illegal aliens are dumped into the country and allowed to vote (which is the Democrats’ obvious goal).

    “It is a democracy since people are the deciding factor as to which party should be in control.”

    “This is how a democracy is supposed to work.”

    One party is using mainstream news organizations and social media to spread misinformation, suppress facts and opinions they don’t like, and intimidate people who disagree with them.

    That’s not how a democracy is supposed to work.
