My shul has virtual minyanim now, they’re wonderful. It’s not the same of course but it’s better than davening alone.
Coronavirus is very serious and will end up killing thousands of Jews in the shtetls of New York who do not take this seriously. This thread is like a time capsule.
You have to have character… or at least act like one.
I miss my subtitle
This is the original coffee room as it was brought down on Har Sinai.
Leave the trolling to me, son.
There’s only one me, fellas.
Will he round up and expel all the illegal immigrants?
Not all of them but most of them.
Will he charge Mexico for building a wall, even if that causes a trade war?
Yes, because it won’t cause a trade war. If it does, how could Mexico expect to win? We don’t get anything from them.
Will he be "neutral" in between the Israelis and Palestinians?
Of course not, he’s going to be so pro-Israel your head will spin. He’s going to earn a nickname like “the Great” or something.
Will he demand that NATO members pick between pay US defense costs or not be defended?
Yes. He might leave NATO altogether. The cold war is over.
Will he cozy up to Putin?
If by cozy you mean not have nuclear war with then yes.
Will he retreat from the world?
The world will retreat from Trump.
Will he ban people from entering the country based on their religion?
If that religion is Islam, yes.
Will he put tariffs on everything?
Will he start a trade war with China?
No. New trade deals with China is not a war.
We’re going to make America great again.
Hi guys. Is everyone here ok?
You know how some intellectual degenerates will react when pressed about their Israel position? They don’t want to have to make a difficult choice or concede that Israel is more civilized than Palestinian savages. They prefer to dwell in a moral vacuum and it’s all the same to them. That’s when they’ll say something like “I hope they just nuke the whole Middle East.” rather than concede anything to God.
That’s what this thread is about with Trump. If you think there’s no difference then you’re either not paying attention or you would just rather nuke the whole election.
This is my real name.
Don’t feed the troll. You’ll never get any point conceded. Religious Jews know that Hillary is no true friend of the Jews, Israel, the Torah, or Hakodesh Boruchu. On the other hand, all of Trump’s kids are married to Jews and all the enemies of Israel are scared of him. Hillary will appoint Supreme Court justices who will make anti-Torah decisions for the sake of a globalist/leftist/Jewhating agenda. We all know it, too. It’s just a matter of who wants to be honest with themselves.
Gary Johnson is a media candidate with no real support. He isn’t a real Libertarian, he supports TPP, and he has zero name recognition. Actual Libertarians are not voting for him, he’s not siphoning away any of Trump’s base, and Sanders supporters will not jump to a candidate that will sign TPP.
Hashem wants Trump. He turned the political world upside down for him. Everyone can see what a rasha Hillary is, and people are abandoning the media.
Avi K – It’s not unconstitutional to discriminate against Muslim immigrants, it’s not even unprecedented. Carter did it during the Iran hostage crisis. These aren’t American citizens who get constitutional rights.
mdd – He didn’t threaten Paul Ryan, this is motzi shem ra. Trump’s opponents make up lies. Where did he threaten Paul Ryan?
Ari K – My point about Torah values is that the Democrats hold none of them, and “look what goes on at his rallies”, this is just sodomy. These protestors are becoming violent because they know they’ll never be held accountable by the media. They’re like Palestinians, never responsible for their behavior.
Health – Obama is clearly no friend of the Jews and it should be clear by now that Hillary isn’t, either.
Avi K – Trump is not trying to silence his opposition like the Nazis did. The protestors and their leftist-liberal social justice warriors are using violence to silence Trump, like the Brownshirts used to.
mdd – Can you cite any actual evidence?
Trump is a better candidate than Hillary if you want to vote for someone who better reflects Torah values. Hillary will just continue Obama’s policies.
Trump doesn’t want to destroy the constitution, Obama does. Why do the frum always vote Democrat?
I don’t think akuperma was referring to Trump as “old and powerful”
“It’s simply not my problem.”
It’s mostly the American left that gets passionate in their anti- Israel rhetoric; Fourth-wave antisemitism (Hating the Jew Nation, rather than the individual Jew) is a staple of the left wing world. Even orthodox Jews that walk around in kipot and call themselves rabbi are required to criticize Israel as a token gesture of their commitment to the liberal hive mind. Half of them aren’t even aware of what they’re doing. All will support whomever the most dovish, left wing MK happens to be at the time.
Personally, I don’t criticize Israeli politicians or take sides in whatever battles are taking place because the subtle nuances are lost upon Americans such as myself. Akuperma has no idea what he’s talking about. This site will publish any drivel that guy comes up with. There is functionally no difference between Democrat and Republican. It’s a hegelian dialectic designed to create synergy between two opposing forces so that any and all talking points are framed and nothing real ever gets accomplished on the ground… just a slow roll toward totalitarianism.
You want a shmad? Ask a Palestinian or any other hardline Muslim (if you have a heter to speak to a non-Haredi) if they’d still want to kill the Jews if we all converted to Islam, and you’ll have your answer. That’s a shmad. Then again, the way the Haredim have been behaving lately, maybe it’s not.
I’ll let you know if any Jews make the All Star team so the Vaad HaBaseball can stand outside and scream nebach! Even better, they could work the gates to make sure no Jews are entering. If a Jew is found, shun him and make sure his kids never get married.
First off, if you really believe Obama’s and Bloomberg’s ultimate goal isn’t the complete disarmament of the American people, then I have an unregulated spy network to sell you. Dianne Feinstein (has a Jewish father) has said as much and uses every opportunity to seize as many gun rights as she possibly can. We’re already serfs. If they take our guns, we’ll be slaves.
North Carolina has the castle doctrine, open carry, no registration, and is a shall-issue concealed permit state. Somehow, we refrain from massacring each other down here.
Exercise your second amendment rights while you still can.
People generally do not keep cows, chickens, sheep, or deer as pets. No chicken I’ve ever seen has displayed any individuality and cows aren’t smart enough to know what’s going on. Deer are too feral but I’ll give you had gadya. It happens, but farm animals generally are livestock. Cats and dogs aren’t. Dolphins and whales certainly aren’t.
The animals that display individual personalities (cats, dogs, horses, ferrets, monkeys, whales, dolphins… and pigs) are all unkosher. Cats and dogs are explicitly unkosher (those that go on paws), even more so than pigs which have cloven hooves. Cats and dogs don’t just have personalities, they display emotions as well. Vibrant animal souls which are not meant to be consumed by man.
Trolling is an art. You need to know what’s in the lake.
The war is against the Haredi system and/or the Chassidic culture. We’re not going to pretend living in an 18th century ghetto while intentionally remaining poor and impoverished is a valid way of life. Haredim are not entitled to live in a similar fashion to the Leviim. The way Haredi leaders have chosen to handle this situation is nothing short of deplorable, and only strengthens our resolve to uproot your harmful, dangerous culture. Pull your own weight.
Don’t worry akuperma… we’ll get there. The children of Israel have rejected Daas Torah as illegitimate.
All geirim should militantly avoid all Haredim unless they enjoy being treated like a dog.
Just because they’re antagonists doesn’t mean you’re not stagnant.
I see that the Gedolim agree with Bloomberg on something. The seizure of yet another liberty. Maybe Bloomberg will make smoker testimony invalid, that’ll get people to quit.May 14, 2013 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm in reply to: Admitting bad judgement: Is it seen as a sign of strength or weakness? #957284
I wouldn’t expect to hear anything resembling an apology out of Lakewood. They don’t have to, their followers have no choice but to continue to obey or be labeled a moser.April 15, 2013 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm in reply to: Agudas Yisroel of America Plans Mass Tefila in Manhattan Against Draft Gezeria #945441
Being a (hated, despised, am haaretz) secular Jew who has an education, earns a living as a dedicated professional, and regularly interacts with all kinds of American non-Jews, I can tall you how real Americans are going to respond:
“So? That’s their problem.”
Americans have no comprehension of what the problem is, so I explain it to them this way: “It’s east vs. west. They want something for nothing while the rest of us work.”
They have no problems understanding the issue after that.April 12, 2013 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm in reply to: PHOTO: Orthodox Jewish Man Covers Himself In Plastic Bag On Plane #945815
There is little that justifies this kind of insanity. If tumah is only up, how far up? The stratosphere? The ionosphere? The magnetosphere? Do Kohanim astronauts have to be sure they don’t orbit over a cemetary? What if a Kohein lands on the moon, does it travel there, or does he just have to worry about lunar cemetaries?
I get that driving a car through a cemetary isn’t okay because it’s not a fixed vessel but the airplane is tens of thousands of feet up. That’s miles away. On the ground, that kind of distance might put you outside of city limits, never mind outside cemetary grounds. I don’t buy Kanievsky’s psak at all, it’s stringent for the sake of being stringent. Not being a Kohein, I’ll never have to worry about it personally but it’s just insane.
My my. I see before me an infamous condescending attitude from one who shuns common sense.April 12, 2013 12:40 am at 12:40 am in reply to: PHOTO: Orthodox Jewish Man Covers Himself In Plastic Bag On Plane #945793
The plastic offers a degree of halachic protection that the airtight metal tube doesn’t. How does that work? Who decided that metal is an improper barrier? A wooden wall is ok, a cement wall is ok, but a steel wall isn’t? Do the Gedolim have a degree in chemistry?
You don’t exist because this is a false world is what I mean. This world is the grease trap under the sink. It has a specific purpose, to trap all the schmutz. Entrapment is legal in the heavenly court. Everyone gets trapped here against their will and everyone will have to answer for what they did while they were stuck on the flypaper. All the tehillim in the world won’t prevent you from having to answer for bad business dealings.
No, you don’t exist. None of us do because none of this is real. Try not to get too bent out of shape about it.
The Haredim are going to blame anything (and everything) bad that occurs in eretz Yisroel from here on out on the draft. We know, we know.
No women up there, huh?
Just buy a Braun beard trimmer at the drug store for $45 or so and you don’t have to go anywhere. I enjoy my goatee, “yekke” or not.
mdd, nobody is hurling insults.March 14, 2013 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm in reply to: Interesting Thing That Happened To Me; Is Geography Really That Difficult? #936629
Everyone on this board needs to see Idiocracy, directed by Mike Judge.
Kanoi: The subject is Eretz Yisroel, not Metitza b’Peh. Please stay on topic.
Haredim who believe they’re the only real Jews and hold by the Satmar rebbe would logically have no problem praying for the death of whom they consider “false Jews”. We don’t hold by his garbage. Look where they sit now, among leftists and Arabs.
TheBearIsBack: How about if we compromise and give you “shomrei mitzvos” your own state in an Arab autonomous region and see how long you last? It’s a win-win! You don’t have to pray for the death of Jews and we don’t have to put up with you parasites!
