Ben Levi, at least as far as the secular world is concerned, there is an alternative to capitalism and socialism. And that’s the sort of system advocated by Foster Gamble (who is heir to Proctor Gamble), and who these past decades has been very much into the secular version of tikkun olam.
Ironically, his Jewish son was the one who had encouraged him to “follow the money” which clued him into lots of stuff he hadn’t previously realized. It’s beyond the scope of this forum (and my cognitive abilities), but you can research it.
Also, just because it’s impressive doesn’t mean it can ever come to fruition because there are too many negative entities which impede positive efforts toward change.
On a tangent, I’m not the least worried about CV compared to the decades i’ve endured until now. In fact, it could be many tzadikim were niftar of CV in order to spare them the worst yet to come. To put it subtly, there’s a huge bag of tricks ongoingly orchestrated by the sitra achra. Just listen to R’Alon Anava and some others. Also, approx. 2 months ago there was a Rav Pinto (Morocco?) who offered a strong prophetic warning.
Per Dr.Ferrer, pulmonologist in Florida (Cleveland Clinic Cough Clinc), Xylitol-saline nasal spray is advisable (among other things).March 27, 2020 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm in reply to: How Corona Taught Klal Yisroel to Make Small Simchas #1843971
I’m100% in agreement with Joseph too.
Consider this a belated, rhetorical answer. The reason the shechinah is crying, and why I need Moshiach to come, is because there’s a tragedy within our communities ongoingly taking place, yet the movers and shakers in our midst tacitly sanction it.
And that’s, in a word “bullying”.
Yeah, i know what y’all are thinking, and the answer is no. I’m not referring to “classic” bullying, since that’s NOT being ignored.
Rather, i’m referring to the bullying against segments of our society whom everyone chooses to ignore, who are the most helpless of all:
And that’s the ELDERLY & DISABLED & IMPRISONED IN OUR MIDST.
You can find elder-abuse (or neglect) in nursing homes.
You can find disabled-abuse (or neglect) in group homes.
You can find prisoner-abuse (or neglect) in prisons.
But i don’t foresee an EVENT ever taking place about this issue. And so the shechina is feeling the pain of all sufferers, since our souls and the shechina (a.k.a. The Field) are interwoven.
Moshiach needs to come to heal and rehabilitate all helpless sufferers. The ones caught in a painful trap of body & circumstances. Along with that, the shechina (who is interwoven with all souls) will be released and rehabilitated as well.
I’m trying to post yet a 3rd time, this time omitting the links which YWN doesn’t seem to allow.
Thanks for your feedback! I only found one of the above, by being a detective & using youtube’s suggestion to try it as “higale na” and even then, it took many tries.
And even the below isn’t quite the dveykus rendition i had in mind, even if it’s the correct song (israeli style):
As for Hishbati eschem, nope, the ones yielded by youtube isn’t the song i’d keyed into musipedia.
I wish there’d have been a way to download the tune i keyed on the musipedia flash-piano (and i ALSO wish there were an AUDIO alternative to ImgBB, since Clyp requires an account), but what the heck, i jumped thru lot of hoops, and below, finally, is the tune.
So after all that, do you know the words to the below “Donald-Duckified” tune?
midwesterner, I spent hours typing a response (due to finding links & recording song), and now for some reason my response isn’t registering. Very frustrating.May 28, 2019 2:58 am at 2:58 am in reply to: Percentage of men members vs. women on YW Coffeeroom? #1733807
RGP, don’t speak for all females, as you’ve described the antithesis of my own personality, which is half-track mind, quite incapable, and very serious. Based on my past experience, what interests most people, is only superficially & painfully of interest to me (i.e. occasional scrambling to keep somewhat up-to-date on what interests the “Joneses” or shall I say “Josephs”)
…and vice versa, what’s of interest to me, would be painfully boring to the Joneses & Josephs.
P.S. RGP, given that you’re blocked, consider this a rhetorical response…
P.P.S. To all & sundry – so my suspicions were vindicated but it makes no diff. as i’m a misfit anywhere, and always have been. Male, female, Jewish, other, no matter. The funny thing is, that both mainstream datiim and mainstream secularites have as their common-denominator that most don’t seem all that interested in what a healed-world might be like.May 28, 2019 1:32 am at 1:32 am in reply to: Makkot – measles, lyme, bedbugs, pit-bulls, power-outtages etc. #1733794
“If people don’t want to vaxx and want to stay away from the rest of us, you’d have a point. Don’t come to our shuls, schools, stores etc.”
OK, i’m all for the non-vaxxers setting up separate shuls and schools, as well as ordering groceries delivered to their doors, until this whole issue blows away. Now just sponsor the ads & arrange for the gedolim to unanimously sign a psak.May 28, 2019 1:28 am at 1:28 am in reply to: I noticed that Rebbitzen Golden P is blocked. Is that a good, bad or ugly thing? #1733799
You asked “good, bad, or ugly”
Sorry I can’t comment on that. However, IMO it’s horrifically ugly that there are zero frum forums where serious females (the types who shrink from aggressive debating) can feel comfortable posting. On the CR forums, if our posts don’t fit in with the prevailing pattern of boringly-brainy debates and boringly-aggressive leitzunut, so help us. And if we dare to truthfully whistleblow about urgent matters, we’re censored.
So yea, bring on the leitzunut however unconstructive – yet censor the very-constructive whistleblowing… just consider that it’s hypocrisy such as this which has turned off the most sensitive FFB’ers. And consider it a major miracle that some of us are still hanging on by the tips of our fingernails these many decades.
To Ocho and Lit:
I agree, and you took the words out of my mouth, except i’d have stated the posuk:
“B’rov daas yosif mach’ov” (as describing many litvaks)
However – the times are a’changin’ and enough of the newer generation have mixed and mingled, so that probably they’ve rubbed off on each other a bit. Probably the less savory stuff!
You’re all clueless. The way colored-spectrum & white-spectrum people ought to view each other is as “sensitive to issues Outside him/herself” – rather than “s/he’s colored-spectrum (or white-spectrum) and therefore suspect”.
BTW, if you’d read up on stemcells, you’d see that it’s actually possible (via splicing) to crank out human chimera’s whereby embryo’s can have more than 2 parents.
So for example, say you’d label:
indian – Red
Chinese – Yellow
African – Black
European – White
By dint of splicing, mad-scientists can crank out a baby who can have:
A red-dad, yellow-dad, black-mom & white-mom
For a total of 4 genetic parents.
And they might not stop at 4, because the sky’s the limit.
Goq, I’m not sure it’s necessarily East Coasters who talk without thinking, rather it’s the shallow culture which has caught hold in OJ society.
I once read a letter to editor of CY Magazine, and mind you, that was =years= ago.
This girl emphasized that she first learned the true meaning of communication when she entered college. It was there she observed with amazement that each person who had the floor, got to finish a complete thought without interruption.
But OJ schools (as far as i know) aren’t that way, rather more like a circus. The worst part is – that OJ’ers don’t realize how abnormal it is, to chat aimlessly, at high speed, with constant interruptions.
Did you know that when Rav Elchonon Wasserman once visited Tel Aviv, he held his hand over his ears with a pained expression, because all the honking denoted impatience. And that was so ANATHEMA to his nature, that it actually caused him pain.
P.S. BTW, the post I mentioned above is non-findable by me anymore. It was entitled “where to find non-existent forum i’m seeking” and mentioned how I need to listen to radio to get to hear deep thoughtful topics such as stem cells, ZPE, crop circles & so forth, instead of the constant thoughtlessness, mercenariness & harshness i’m up against in FFB circles.
Aren’t forums supposed to offer a left-sidebar, where you can List Subscriptions (to see all the threads you’re subscribed to)? And where is the User CP to simplify my password mnemonically??
I’m finding navigation very very confusing.
All I want is a non-chauvinistic, non-mercenary, intelligent, OJ forum, so that I can occasionally communicate to likeminded people who (like myself) so happened to be born into the FFB world, even if we don’t belong on Earth altogether.
I’m female, yet never even gained entry to imamother.
Do not ever say there’s no elitism among OJers. They’ve perfected it to a “t”
P.S. Why not also “Mevogeret Yuppies” (or its Jewish equivalent)? I just might belong somewhere there, but even that’s questionable.
anyone here heard of hotkiddush.com?
