    Yserbius,

    I was implying that

    So is it that we’re biased and therefore we go to the site that agrees with our bias or are we biased because the site that we usually go to feeds us biased information

    This might be a chicken or egg question

    The problem is that hair is considered ערוה and if you can see the hair even though it’s “covered” it’s a problem

    It’s like wearing a sheer article of clothing where that place is something that’s supposed to be covered

    “I think Biden’s people who have mostly experience in the “Beltway” do not think of the real world.“

    “Who are the ones that are attacking Biden for pulling our troops out? Who is calling America weak and emboldening terrorists?

    The same ones who if Trump had gotten it done would be lavishing praise on him.“

    Why do you think trump would do the same exact thing as Biden?

    It’s like saying if Biden was president when Obama was he would have killed bin Ladin

    But obviously he wouldn’t have because he was there and said don’t kill him

    Even Obama was upset at the way Biden handled things

    “Not to worry, the right wing MAGA’s with the support of the Trillion dollar Military Industrial complex will find another war to send other people’s kids into so that they can repair their self-image of how “tough” America is and be proud of how “everyone fears us”.“

    Right jackk

    That’s why there was no new wars under trump

    Jackk,

    Are you saying that since trump said a month before his second term he was going to leave but then post the election he wouldn’t bring them home?

    I highly doubt it

    “coffee addict, you can’t follow both views, so one will be rejected. Sometimes you listen to one and sometimes to another. You must show willingness to listen and respect their views. When you always follow your own instincts, people around you realize that their good advice is not required and is ignored.”

    Do you work in the White House to say that trump didn’t listen to anybody that said against HR McMaster

    Additionally your comment was on the people that trump didn’t listen to resigned, so Biden didn’t listen to people that told him to stay but they didn’t resign

    You don’t see the correlation?

    “14. See above, 1 and 4. Is the lack of Tznius dress in the MO world a problem? Yes. But, As stated above in no. 1, that is not anyone’s fault. People are not interested in being told that what they’re doing is wrong across the board, not just in the MO world.“

    I like most of your points but this I take issue with

    Lace top sheitels (should be a whole new thread IMO) has started to be shown to be אסור and thankfully I have seen people on community groups start to sell them (I’m assuming because they realize they can’t wear it anymore

    “That’s not the point. What I meant was that you cannot blame people for that which they don’t know, hence that even if they are mistaken, it does give anyone the right to disown them, especially an entire community.“

    But it is the point

    “coffee addict: I don’t think the Rabbonim are scared they’ll lose their job – it’s more about a proper pace. Push something too hard all at once and it will break. You need to go slowly, one step at a time, so people don’t feel overwhelmed.“

    I’ll address you too damoshe,

    I’m not saying to push I’m saying to teach what’s right and wrong (and especially lead by example isn’t pushing)

    It brings to mind a vort I thought of for פרשת שופטים

    In Parshas Shoftim we talk about someone that killed someone else on purpose but runs away to an עיר מקלט the Torah says you should kill the murderer (Rashi says don’t say one person died why should we kill another person)

    But the Gemara says if a בית דין killed one person in 70 years it’s considered “a בית דין של רוצחים” why? If the Torah says they should kill him why are they murderers?

    The answer I was thinking of is that בית דין’s job isn’t just to judge cases but also to teach people not to do עבירות, and if a person does an עבירה they failed in their job

    The same holds true over here, a rabbi’s job isn’t just to give sermons and perform weddings but to teach their congregation what’s right and what’s wrong

    Rebdovid,

    Since you replied I’ll answer one of your defenses

    “ Most of the issues in the MO community are the cause of ignorance, not malignant violations of Halacha; think of it as a Tinok SheNishba situation of sorts (Chas VeShalom, I am NOT calling the MO community Tinokos SheNishbeu).”

    So it’s the job of the rabbanim to teach them and call them out if something is wrong

    Are they scared they’ll lose their job?

    I got this message from someone

    🇦🇫✡️ — NEWS: Zebulun SimanTov, the last remaining Jew in Afghanistan decided he is staying in the now Taliban controled country and won’t be moving to Israel or the United States:

    “I will not leave my home. If I had left, there would have been no one to maintain the Synagogue. I had the opportunity to leave to the US, SimonTov said in an interview.

    “Nobody cares what Trump thinks or diyukim in his narishkeit.“

    Yet you say

    “ He can declare himself king and he will have millions of supporters agreeing.”

    So I guess his supporters care

    “Biden is doing a great job and exactly what he was elected to do. Most of America loves him and supports him.“

    There was a poll that asked if you think Biden did a good job in Afghanistan and 69% said no

    And foreign policy is his “strong point”

    Yeah right

    “Me – You can’t Resign from a position that you weren’t elected to!“

    So Jen Psaki can’t resign because she wasn’t elected to being press secretary?

    And if you really believe it to be true, then Trump disagrees with you (or is saying Biden was elected to the position)

    Aaq,

    I don’t think people should be forced to be mensches

    And yet again the vulnerable people should protect themselves they should wear double masks

    Another idea, if you are going to mask mandate then make the masks free (subsidized) because according to you it’s government’s job to protect people so the government should provide it

    “It seems that problems with vaccines are typically found quickly. That is, there might be short-term side effect after vaccine uptake, but not long-term. It seems to make sense in terms of how immunity reacts to a threat. If there are long-term vaccine cases, please point me to them.“

    Aaq

    And the reason that’s so is because fda approval wasn’t rushed

    Health

    “In Medicine – the Rule is to Do that which is Beneficial and to Not take too many Risks!
    Vaccines are beneficial to almost e/o.“

    Baalhabooze isn’t arguing with that what he’s saying is most vaccines take years to perfect (or close to) with FDA approval so how can you tell everyone to trust something that was rushed?

    There used to be a sign at my work
    “I do three types of work, good, fast, and cheap choose any two
    If you want good and fast it won’t be cheap
    If you want good and cheap it won’t be fast
    If you want fast and cheap it won’t be good”

    Baalhabooze thinks that the vaccine was fast and cheap (in relation to other things of this magnanimity)

    We learned over centuries a lot of good practices that we apply without doing a heshbon each time whether it is necessary: don’t sneeze on people,

    That’s not “life changing”
    wash your hands before eating (what is percentage of food with E-coli?!),
    you’re not forced to, it’s your choice

    stopping on a red light (what is percentage that someone will walk at you or police hiding nearby), it’s for cars too, not just people and they go a lot faster

    saying hello (what is percentage that are depressed and really need a hello),
    again, not mandated

    wearing tzitzis (what is a chance you are going to “follow your eyes” while on a shopping trip), that’s again to protect yourself

    wearing shoes (what is a chance there is glass on the floor) again that’s to protect yourself and btw shoes בעצם are more comfortable not just for protection

    I’m not saying don’t get the vaccine, I’m saying once you got the vaccine you shouldn’t be forced to “protect someone who doesn’t want it

    People tend to think that the government is good (who can you trust if you can’t trust the government) and politicians on both sides of the aisle say their people should take the vaccine

    This is why you could be considered an anti vaxxer because you are bucking the trend and saying we can’t trust the government

    “What is the halakha about this?

    That’s a question for Rabbi Hoffman

    “And, as I mentioned, they are a threat to immunocompromised vaxed people, if they come in direct contact with them.”

    So they should wear a mask! ( both unvaxxed and immunocompromised)

    Always ask questions,

    “A fair question. Depends on the recipient. The good news for un-vaxed would be that if indeed vaxed people do not transmit much under reasonable conditions, then un-vaxed need to worry “only” about one contact.“

    I’m not worried about the unvaxxed they should worry about themselves (if they don’t why should I) which is why Reb eliezer agreed with me (and I said we should make a kiddush) if the unvaxxed want to be safe, take the shot!

    I’m not worried about a cold and I don’t worry about people that don’t worry about themselves

    I hope I’m clear
