I think they should teach hashkafa, home keeping, food preparation and child rearing.
Reb Eliezer: After 2100 it will change to January 5.
CTL: How were you aware of every student of yours economic status, as to whether they were poor or rich?
What if nittel falls on a Shabbos?December 25, 2020 8:46 am at 8:46 am in reply to: Why do girls need to learn Sifsie Chachamim inside? #1931919
Before the Beis Yaakov’s started girls were educated only at home by their mothers on how to be a good Jewish wife and mother.
We’re machmir and observe both dates.
If the country passed a law with a ten year jail sentence for anyone who crossed the street illegally when the pedestrian light was red and said Don’t Walk, would you say that falls under the Torah rubric of goyim establishing laws and a justice system per the Sheva Mitzvos? Of course not. The fact is that the current laws are way out of whack and extremely and unjustifiably harsh.
Did anyone consider the correlation between parents and teachers no longer utilizing (or it becoming much less prevalent) corporal punishments (potching, etc.) and children’s behavior haven gotten much worse in the generations since such punishments have gone out of style?
Charlie Hall: AT&T and Verizon are antisemitic, as they refuse to cut off telephone service to antisemites who express antisemitic thoughts to others over the telephone. Google is also anti-Semitic as they refuse to take away Gmail accounts from anti semites.
commonsaychel: We should use Torah as our guide on right and wrong and on what proper punishments are. In the Torah jailing is exceedingly rare as a punishment, and never is it utilized for financial crimes.
President Trump and Bob Grant were made from the same caliber.
Meir G: Flipping on a LED light is d’rabbonon?
All the Mueller hoax pardons were well deserved.
Reb Eliezer: The proper punishment for white collar crime is repayment of damages plus a fine. (Check your local Bible.) Prison is counter-productive. Put white collar criminals to indentured servitude (in whatever area of business they are professionals in) and use the proceeds of their work to repay the victims.
Biden’s senility is demonstrated by many things other than any speech defect. As mentioned in the OP, compare his public appearances in the late 12 months to his public appearances five years ago. His regression and cognitive decline is virtually undeniable.
No, it would not be a good idea. That’s aside from the extreme unlikelihood of getting a constitutional amendment passed.
This country needs less people in prison not more. Save your energies to reduce the prison population; not prevent its decrease.
End prison for white-collor crime; reserve it for violent crimes only, where it is only used to prevent reoccurrence of violence.
Is it in one of Hanoch Teller’s books?
Biden’s pending pseudo-presidency is increasingly becoming discredited. Democrats know this, have acknowledged it and are extremely angry about it.December 23, 2020 10:00 am at 10:00 am in reply to: The shidduch process; chassidish & litvish , its working & yet #1931254
5ish: In Chasidish and Lubavitch yeshivos they make clear to the boys that not all of them can become Talmidei Chachomim?
What about in the girls schools and Beis Yaakovs? Do they make sure the girls know that not all can become top girls and marry top guys?
CS: You mean Flim Flam Florio.
Dinkins was a washroom attendant before he got his affirmative action promotions.

akuperma: All the more reason for us to name our kinderlach Donald. If we name our children Alexander despite his flaws, all the more for The Donald, who as you point out is even better than Alexander the Great.December 21, 2020 9:17 am at 9:17 am in reply to: President Donald J. Trump: A Modern Day Alexander the Great #1930523
Was Alexander the Great of such great moral character that Chazal decreed Jewish babies should be named after him?
ENS: Using your logic Republicans can decide that only Republicans won elections for the Senate. This way they can perpetually ensure that Republicans control the Senate.
In any event, controlling the House doesn’t in any way permit Democrats to decide who is President. The Republicans control a majority of state delegations in the House.

Excellent points, Meir G.
Meno and Yseribus: The separate answers you offered in response to my question are giving differing explanations.
Mods review and approve new threads less frequently compared to regular posts. So they usually take longer for approval.
ENS: This process is Constitutionally exclusively in the domain of the legislative branch (Congress) and not the judicial branch. As such, the Supreme Court would rightfully rule that the courts can play no part in the process. And that the courts cannot order Congress, a coequal branch, in how to act. No court has ever ordered Congress to take any specific action.
CharlieHall: You’re a terrific virologist but (wadr) a poor constitutional scholar. There is a powerful argument that the Succession Act’s placement of the speaker in the line of presidential succession (and after her, the president pro tempore of the Senate) is contrary to the Constitution’s Succession Clause. That clause states that only an “Officer” may succeed and act as president. Most of the pertinent commentary maintains that the term “Officer” here does not include members of Congress. As such, Pelosi could not constitutionally “act as President,” even though the statute says she can.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (the executive officer next in line under the statute) can declare himself acting president on the basis of a legal opinion from the Attorney General proclaiming legislative succession to the presidency unconstitutional.
Furthermore, as I mentioned, to preclude even getting to the above scenario (that I described in my previous comment) the Senate before January 20 could have a contingency election for Vice President and elect Michael Pence. Then Pence would remain vice president after Trump’ term ended at noon January 20 and Pence would precede all other persons in assuming the presidency.
Don’t forget that for EACH objection in the joint session of Congress on January 6 made by one congressman and one senator, Congress needs to debate (separately in the House and in the Senate) two hours over each objection. And then the two chambers need to reconvene the joint session.
And there are 51 slates of electors. And there are 538 actual electors. An objection can be made against each of the 51 slates. That’s 2 hours (plus additional administrative time to reconvene) times 51. Meaning well over a hundred hours of debating time and 51 times to regather.
Furthermore, (buckle your seatbelts) a congressman and senator can object INDIVIDUALLY against each of the 538 electors purported vote. That’s 538×2=1,076 hours of debate plus 538 times for the two houses of Congress to reconvene.
In short, one congressman and one senator can delay proceedings past January 20th.
Oh, and there’s a serious constitutional debate whether a non-member of the Executive Branch can become Acting President. The constitution says no even though the presidential succession act says yes. If the Attorney General rules the act is unconstitutional, then (is your seatbelts still buckled?) Secretary of State Mike Pompeo becomes Acting President in the absence of Congress confirming a winner of the presidential election (electoral college).
Alternatively, the Senate could have a contingency election for Vice President and elect Michael Pence. In which case he’ll become president in the absence of Congress declaring a winner of the electoral college. Because Republicans would also win a contingency election for president in the House, since Republicans control a majority of state delegations. So Pelosi would surely refuse to hold à contingency election in the House that Trump could win.
Meno, a person who lived in Antarctica from 2018 until now, with zero contact with any other human, gets vaccinated in Antarctica and returns to the US now for the first time since 2018. He isn’t safe from becoming a carrier and/or spreading the virus? Why on earth would be need to wear a mask?
Meno, come again? Someone who doesn’t have covid (not currently and perhaps not ever) can spread it??
The far lady won’t be singing until January 6.
But it’ll be kol isha to listen.
ubiq: We absolutely can do that starting in January 2025 if it hadn’t yet occurred. But I think we’ll see the putsch much sooner than that. The old man is already showing strong signs of regression.
AAQ: If you’re already vaccinated I don’t see any reason you’d ever need a mask again, even if only one percent of the population has also vaccinated. Once vaccinated you’re safe from catching or spreading covid.
Many political analysts believe the Democrat establishment has already created a plan for a putsch of the old man via the 25th Amendment, to elevate the left-wing radical Harris to the Crown.
Mock it now if you wish, but when it happens remember you heard it here first.
Can we stop wearing a mask in public immediately after taking (both doses of) the vaccine?
To huju: if you weren’t honest you’d call yourself honest.
Ghadorah: It ain’t over till the fat lady sings. That’ll only happen on January 6.
President Trump, being the great friend of Israel he is, sent an expedited shipment of vaccines to Israel.
But many Israelis are refusing to take the vaccine until it is proven by seeing the results of millions of people who took it first.
To huju: The 50/90 year old reputations of the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, CBS, ABC, and of more recent vintage, CNN, PBS, NPR and their ilk is of lying and falsehoods, covering up for nazism, blaming Israel, cursing America, hating caucasians, acting as the public relations arm of the Democrat Party, opposing morality and families and pushing far-left politics.
The Democrat Party is today the modern version of the American Communist Party.
Benny, there is no bipartisan backlash to gerrymandering. The backlash is only coming from partisan Democrats. The Supreme Court of the United States has recently clearly upheld the legality of gerrymandering.
The system isn’t any more broken today than it was 60 years ago. The only difference is that 60 years ago the Democrat Party controlled most redistricting, especially in the South, and gerrymandered districts to their great benefit. That lasted many decades. Today, since about ten years ago, Republicans reversed that and gained the same control of redistricting that Democrats used to have. Democrats, of course, hate that. So they now decided it has become anti-democratic — since they are no longer in charge. It was good, though, while they ran the ship.
It may be true that today, due to micro level data on election districts by the block level and using sophisticated software algorithms gerrymandering can be done much “better” than could be done 20+ years ago. But it wasn’t due to Democrats lacking effort while they were in control to gerrymander to the most of their ability decades ago.
So it is the Democrats loss. They’ll have to live under this new regime. Not because I said so, but because the Supreme Court has so ruled.
Benny, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Democrats had no problem with gerrymandering for many many decades when it benefited them. They’ll now have to live with many years of gerrymandering advantageous to Republicans. Suddenly becoming johnny come lately’s against gerrymandering when it no longer suits their purposes won’t cut it. The Supreme Court has upheld gerrymandering and that settles the issue.
To huju: I don’t want to be accused of racism. As you well know, being a card carrying party member, that any criticism of a black person constitutes racism in the world of today’s Democrat Party and their media cronies.
Ghadorah: Considering that the Republicans won across all down ballots, against all odds, under Trump and the president himself gained millions of voters over the last election, the Republicans realized that Trump must have down many right things these last four years.
Common: Teddy came in third.December 7, 2020 3:47 am at 3:47 am in reply to: Was Every Married Guy Perfect when they Went Out on Dates? #1926473
The way it works is that the non-perfect guys marry the non-perfect girls. The trick for non-perfect guys when dating is to look for less than perfect girls.
Who ruined the Democrat Party – Johnson, Carter or Clinton?
They each built upon the ruins of their predecessors.
RE: Most democracies in Europe, the Americas and elsewhere have much tighter election security than the United States.
ckk: Absolutely, yes! As soon as President Trump assumed office in 2017 he appointed an election integrity and fraud commission to investigate exactly this. The Democrats forced it to close down because they oppose secure elections that might prevent them from cheating.
