    I get you, mod, although I specifically took that example because it’s the liberals’ cardinal sin.

    Let’s try again.

    nfgo and CTLawyer, would you agree that assault should be legalized? If you think it’s wrong, you don’t have to assault anyone yourselves, but at least let it be legal for those who want it.

    As for halacha requiring Jews who own businesses to give preference to hiring Jews. Dina Malcusa Dina.

    DDD isn’t m’chayyeiv you to hire/not hire anyone.

    If you choose to live in the USA you agree to abide by the laws. This isn’t Tzarist Russia or the USSR where Jews were kept in by force. If you don’t like the laws, work to change them through the political system or leave.

    Besides for your logic, or lack thereof, isn’t the subject at hand which of the two philosophies–liberalism or conservatism–are better? In which case, that response to Avi K, who was criticizing certain laws, was either irrelevant or inadequate, or both.

    No one’s forcing you to post in the coffee room. If you don’t like the posts, either get the mods to delete them, or leave.

    I don’t want any part of a gay marriage for myself, BUT I support extending civil rights and opportunities to all US citizens without discriminating on the basis of sexual preferences. Civil marriage is a contract between 2 adults and it gives certain tax and other benefits. It has nothing to do with religious marriage and the accompanying rules.

    It has nothing to do with marriage, either.

    My family tradition was to not wear a tallis before marriage and I always thought it was strange, but I heard of other people who have the same tradition.

    You should definitely wear a tallis. There’s nothing wrong with unmarried boys wearing a tallis (there’salready at least one thread about the subject, which I’m too lazy to link,) By all means, wear a tallis, and be zoche to all the blessings that come from it.

    As an aside, it would be best if you can meet an Orthodox rabbi who can guide you. Also better if you can find an Orthodox shul to daven in.

    However, if one is really angry, one votes against a party that is stupid enough to choose Mr. Drumpf. Such a party- and its voters- don’t deserve to be in power-ever.

    Some would say the same about Her Royal Majesty and her subjects, the Democrats.

    Mr. Drumpf is the most unqualified and dangerous man to run for President.

    Some would say the same about Her Royal Majesty.

    Check out what he said yesterday about the national debt and US Securities.

    Check out what she said–and remember it, because whatever she says is a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity. No two times are ever the same.

    If he ever gets o the White House,he will cost this nation trillions of dollars in extra interest costs and drive the reputation of the United States into the mud. We would be just like Greece.

    Some would say the same about Her Royal Majesty.

    About 2 months ago, I was talking to someone and he commented that as things stand, it looks like it will be Trump vs. Her Majesty, and pointed out the irony of it: Democrats are often referred to as the “Mother” while Republicans are the “Father.” Now, we’ll actually have a mother democrat vs. a father republican. Furthermore, Trump will likely attack Her Majesty about all the scandals, all of which are true and factual. Clinton will likely say that Trump is a bully and “unfit”, etc. Hence, Trump will be dealing with fact, while Her Majesty will be spewing emotions, characteristic of their genderal roles, so all in all we’ll have a real Mother-Father fight.

    Looking at the exchange between dovrosenbaum and ROB, I think it’s living up to his prediction.

    That can’t have been his reasoning, because he already said he wouldn’t be Trump’s running mate.

    I like Cruz, and sure hope he’s not Trump’s running mate. It would be very hypocritical if he runs alongside trump, and it’s not like if he’s on the ticket Trump stands a better chance against Her Royal Majesty.

    charliehall, ‘??? brings the ??????, the ??”? and ????? bring it from the ???????.

    We don’t usually pasken by Toseftas that contradict an explicit Mishnah,

    there isn’t any explicit ???? regarding this; there’s at mosst a ???? in ????? (explaining a ????) which the above ??????? reconcile with the ??”?’s position.

    especially when there is an unopposed Bavli that supports the Mishnah

    if you’re referring to the ‘?? in ?????, it doesn’t say anything explicitly; the ????? actually brings an alternative ????? which supports the ??”?’s position.

    Even ?????? that there is an explicit ???? not like the ??”?, the legend about a 3rd ????? during the talmudic era will do nothing to resolve his position.

    1.4: No proof. Nor any real way to prove it. It’s not that there is a third Gemara. It’s that there was a third major Yeshiva that is more Yerushalmi-based than Bavli-based. It has no proof. It’s just a theory that answers a lot of questions.

    A lot of unasked questions.

    I’m happy to announce that I reached out to my acquaintance after Purim’s conclusion, trying to return him to the proper path, and he informed me that in fact, the whole episode had a most relieving ending.

    His wife had made an elaborate ????? ???? with a hand theme, since Purim was on Thursday which is the fifth day of the week, and a hand has five fingers. The thing is, she had been planning on including “hand”les on the basket, but forgot to pick them up from the store, which was closed on Purim, so it was missing one reference to the theme, and besides, everything in the basket already had the same b’racha, so the whole thing was ruined.

    My acquaintance, sweet thing that he is, told her to put in a bottle of wine with a rhyme that read, “You may drink wine, although it’s not a demand/Drunks get out of hand“. So the mishloach manos was not only salvaged, it even had a poem in it.

    In gratitude to him, and perhaps in order not to contradict her own poetic message, she allowed him to drink, so long as it didn’t get too out of hand. He made a mistake and overdrank, being mikayyeim the mitzvah, without making her too upset.

    …??????? ???? ???? ?????

    There are people who think they are doing a Mitzvah by saying the first 2 words of Yaaleh Vyavo aloud or Vsen Tal Umatar…One is not supposed to do this and in fact it disturbs the one doing it as well as other peoples Shemonah Esrei. Please avoid doing it as it is against Halacha.

    I believe the maharshal says not to announce yaaleh v’yavo before sh’moneh esrei of ma’ariv, and instead the gabbai should say it aloud during s”e.
