It’s racist of you to imply that illegal immigrants can pose a risk even if they’re unvaccinated.
Ry23 you were drunk when you wrote that, right?
I didn’t actually think it was edited in any way, but good disclaimer, anyway.
seems like all side with the rosh. But, let me ask, is it fair of the seminary to foist such a task on my daughter? THey’re not paying her, they want her to do the dirty work of preparing a speech…what’s the justification of that?May 13, 2018 9:02 am at 9:02 am in reply to: thread for random things too small to be their own threads #1519641
Mueller and Kerry look alike.
Plus, I’m not sure I want her speaking about how good the seminary is, after all this.
thanks shoppoing613 and LF for your offer of a speech, but then when she says it everyone will know who I am, and I don’t want that.
As far as writing some “five-minute, sappy thing,” I mean, is that what seminary is all about? Teaching girls to just say some hobblewash? I’m looking for something with substance. Something that will really change the other girls’ lives forever.May 11, 2018 7:48 am at 7:48 am in reply to: What was the first topic ever in ywn coffee room??? #1519289

Safer than smuggling it illegally and selling it, but a smaller profit.May 9, 2018 11:57 am at 11:57 am in reply to: Complaining about poor people not being poor enough #1518511
you have an interesting twist on the word “paraphrase”.
Health, I didn’t miss the point. You missed a few vital English classes.
Sorry; I don’t write the laws.
But you did offeryour opinion on what it should be.
Yidd23 -“It should be legal to eat dog and cat meat”
Absolutely NOT! Unwanted animals that cannot be placed in shelters should be euthanized or kept alive, instead of eaten! We need these animals for science, especially medical science.
<emThe avg. American won’t eat cats or dogs! Maybe they do in other countries.
So basically it should be illegal to eat cats and dogs since the avg. American won’t eat them.
My assumption why there are tough laws is because of the PC that was created by our liberals!
Or maybe because of the though laws created by liberals.
In other words, there is a purpose for humans!
There are very few needs for humans for cats & dogs! How about for science?!?
How about for food?
Why are there tough laws for using cats & dogs, especially when they can be used for science?!?
Beats me. But what does it have to do with PC?
Cows are used by humans for food (Milk & Meat)!
Are you incapable of following the discussion? OP said eating cats & dogs should be legal. You say, “no we need them for science.” I say, “use cows for science and eats cats.” You say, “We can’t use cows, because we eat them.”
“And what does it have to do with PC?”
Why it’s very hard to get cats and dogs for Science.
PC stands for Political Correctness. It has nothing to do with tough laws.
Why should scientists use cats and dogs over cows?”
-They take up less space?
-Because they’re smaller.
Granted, these are legitimate reasons as to why scientists should prefer cats and dogs over cows. But they don’t justify forbidding cats and dogs for citizens, but legalizing them for scientists. The law could allow mere citizens the same conveniences and economic advantages as scientists.
And what does it have to do with PC?
Why should scientists use cats and dogs over cows?
Baruch Hashem I am privileged to be in Eretz Yisrael for R’ Shimon bar yochai’s Johrtziet, so I don’t know of any in Brooklyn. I will iy”h be here through Yom Yerushalayim, and will be saying Morid Hatal my entire stay, as per the custom here.
Try Touro in New York. They have many programs and they’re frum-friendly.
They do accept credits from yeshiva, and they’re schedule accommodates the Jewish calendar. However they (the Brooklyn branch, at least) hire teachers who spout blatant k’fira. They do not deny the charges. They just say that those professors charge less.May 2, 2018 7:21 am at 7:21 am in reply to: Neurotypicals who don’t like loud noises and bright lights #1514586
It seems though that shockingly those Kiddushins & Nisuins were nontheless chal and the couples were Halachicly married!
Are you a poseik, or are you quoting someone who was machshir them?
The mitzius changed since R’ Moshe’s days. The ancient ACs were huge inconvenient machines which made a lot of noise and dimmed the lights during use. They barely made the air colder. I don’t even know if R’ Moshe was familiar with how they worked, but certainly the mitzius changed since then.
Anyway, since when do we go with every kulah we find? Are you machmir on R’ Moshe’s chumros too, or just his kulos? Do you set timers on ACs on shabbos? If so, you contradict yourself.
The Brisker Rav and R’ Tzvi Pesach Frank both didn’t have ACs; they obviously held they were assur, and also a lot of other gedolim.
Don’t bet on it happening, though.
I just love when people use R’ Moshe to prove AC is permitted. Don’t you realize he was niftar over 30 years ago and the mitzius has changed manyfold since then?
I need to get this off my chest: People who do kiruv, formally or informally, have a responsibility to promote independence of BT’s. If you have your little coterie of people whom you’ve ‘made frum’, but you keep them under your exclusive influence then you’re doing them a real disservice. Let them see how other observant people manage a Shabbos table or Pesach Seder; let them try a different shul or a different community.
If you claim that you’re ‘just like family’ for ‘your’ BT’s, then you should be committed to caring for them (and their descendants) in perpetuity – not just that you’ll get all the honor and glamour of walking them to the chuppah and being invited to siyums, etc., but be ready to support them (financially, not just emotionally) if their families reject them or if they have other emergencies.
What do the 2 things have to do with each other?
AviK, that refers to talking about inappropriate things, not using meaningless words which common society has decided are bad.
What’s wrong with using curse words?
Since the OP seems to have raised the question only regarding ethnic and religious groups, I take the liberty of using pejoratives for many of the posters on this thread: You guys are idiots.
“Shvartze” is no more insulting than “black”; “Goy” than “Jew.” Granted, people could use certain tones of voice and contexts to turn a neutral word into an insult (including such words such as “tall” “black” and “doctors”), but no blame lies on people who use them.
Here are some real-life quotes from the above idiots.
Would she have preferred “goy”? I think I remember hearing that Arafat found that term offensive.
Oh, Arafat is am etiquette master now? I assume he also found the term “Jew” offensive.
. I don’t like them at all, even Goy, preferring non-Jew. One should also strive for lashon nekiah.
Just because one person may have been offended by a the term non-Jew doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the term. Is there any sane person who thinks being called a non-Jew is offensive, in a world of rising anti-Semitism?
“Goy” was made into an insult by Jews who hate religious Jews (Sorry, I don’t use the senseless term “Self-hating Jew”). The word has been in use for centuries and won’t fall into disuse because “one person [or persons] may have been offended [or pretend to be offended] by a the term”.
Everyone’s making such a big deal out of this and it’s ridiculous. A) Everyone knows voter fraud exists. B) As iscrimna pointed out, there’s no law mandating him to concede to the winner. C) It was some more exaggerated bluff, basically saying Hillary’s horrible and there’s no way he’ll let her become president.
Leave him alone.
Thanks, but you didn’t really answer the question.
People might say the mi shebeirach, but no one can omit it. It’s not a standard part of the text about which you could call not saying it an “ommission.”
IT DOES NOT
DaasYochid no longer links to the kosher haircut.
DaasYochid went from “a singular mind” to nothing at all.
As I have said from the very beginning, the charges against him may have been fraudulent.
AviK, Hillary had Basseley Nakoula imprisoned after the Benghazi attack for posting a video called Innocence of Muslims on YouTube.
and abusing her position by wrongfully imprisoning someone, completely ignoring the first amendment, in order to protect her image.
Why is it that only candidates from a major party make it?
Thanks, but there aren’t too many s’farim there, and the few that are there look like they’re on sale, not exchange.
Any other ideas?
Most honest answer award goes to…

Wow, you’re gullible.
To talk, I guess. I like to spread the wealth, and grace everyone with my opinions.
the g’mara often uses the word ???? as masculine.
For example, gittin 12b- ???? ??? ???? ????? ???? ??? ??? ??????
