    As George W. Bush said When I was young and stupid, I was young and stupid. (I left out the quotes because it might not be a perfect quote). Yeshiva boys are young and they’ll do stupid things. Nothing you say to them will change it. This topic has been discussed in Yated’s chinuch roundtable and many other places ad nauseum. It’s a pointless discussion.

    What are “Literal” democrat staffers? Are they working for the Literary department or the Literacy department? A different department that I can’t name? Please clarify.

    BLM started under the Obama Administration with Obama as a founding member. If he had condemned the original riots in Ferguson the US would be in a much better position today and not heading towards that very dangerous possibility.

    @n0mesorah

    Trump was more than willing to work with the democrats when he was first elected. They chose to not work with him.

    Your first argument is pointless. Biden has nothing in common with traditional Republican values.

    @n0m The President can’t legally do anything to stop the riots (he tried). Biden won’t even condemn the riots

    @1 (Regarding the original post) If moving to EY is important to you, no election outcome in the US should be a factor in your decision to log out of the coffee room and move. You can log back in after you’re settled in.

    Our community doesn’t have gangs and murderers. Cops issue more parking and traffic tickets in our communities. That has to change. We shouldn’t have to suffer just because they’re bored and have illegal quotas which they deny having.

    Reform is around for two centuries? Really? Where are the descendants of the original Reform Jews? Are they Jewish? Do they even know?

    Everybody has a legal right to try and get a restraining order against another person or try to stop them from publishing a book inthis case. If you prove it in court gezuntrtheit.

    You obviously get all your info from CNN and MSNBC. If you were to open your mind you would find that conservative and pro-Trump voices are silenced much more often than liberals. Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are known for silencing Conservatives and deleting their accounts. They call it hate speech.

    Some people are offended by the way Frum Yidden dress. It’s called freedom of expression. Until somebody acts upon Confederate or Nazi beliefs by owning slaves or operating a death camp it’s constitutionally protected.

    Be as liberal as you want. Hate my President as much as you want. Remember, they can come after your rights as well.

    Registration is free but if you want to accept a shidduch it costs money. There’s no way of knowing what’s available. You don’t get to make your own searches. Matchmakers do the searching and will try their best. I’ve never had any luck.

    Rashi makes the Gemara available to the masses. Chumash as well. My father’s Rosh Yeshiva discouraged bochurim from learning masechta nedarim so they shouldn’t think that they could learn without Rashi. But then, your name says that Mesorah is meaningless to you.

    If you learn without Rashi, you make up your own pshat.

    People should probably still be wary for the time being, but come 2022 (hopefully sooner) if you’re still crazy about it they will be opening Corona Mental Wards.

    Haimy thinks we’re supposed to have power and clout. We aren’t entitled to anything. We’re in Golus! We ask Hashem for things. Then we GROVEL at the feet of whichever goyim are in power. It doesn’t matter if we are doctors or lawyers or bankers. To the goy we are still dirty jews. I’m not into quoting the Lubavitcher Rebbe but sometimes it’s necessary. When asked if the Holocaust could happen again he said “overnight”. Bloc vote is meaningless. Frum (supposedly frum) elected officials are powerless. We shouldn’t be in any position of power. That’s what puts us in the crosshairs. This golus is a vicious cycle. We’ve had clout in the past but that didn’t take us out of golus. We should try improving our clout where it truly counts.

    I still remember when he was forced off the airwaves. Jay Diamond got his slot and Sean Hannity got Jay’s. Jay has since moved on and Sean is nationally syndicated so I wouldn’t exactly say that we’re “orphans” .

    @NOmesorah

    The actual father of Ashkenazi Mesorah aka The MaHaRIL was a shadchan. People with children of marriageable age would write to him and he would respond with an idea. They would then send him shadchanus gelt and we’re all still alive today. These people didn’t date. If you are of Ashkenazi descent you are more than likely a product of one of his shidduchim.

    He brought it upon himself by being a social media influencer instead of a doctor. He should stick to practicing medicine and advising his own patients.
