ManateeGag: "Would have", derpmitter



That's the same thing, for all intensive purposes.

Its possible that a shady creditor, e.g. the mob, did this to get revenge and send his business partners a message.  TFA says he would buy properties, let them fall into foreclosure then his associates would buy them on the cheap.

jayphat: buckler: I try really, really hard not to be prejudicial, but when I was in NYC, the Hasidic Jews made it difficult. With very few exceptions, they managed to validate every hateful stereotype leveled against Jews in general, and that really disappointed me, especially as I call several Jewish (non-Hasidic) people friends, and they have been incredible supports to lean on throughout my life. Somehow, I find this whole thing disgusting, but not surprising.

Replace hasidic Jew with Indian and you get my experience. I have never believed in stereotypes until I moved to an area with a slightly higher than usual Indian population. Every single time they see an opportunity to screw you over, they will. Mostly because they would rather try to screw you over to resell what they're buying than try to actually sign up for the same vendor you use because the vendor won't give them as good a cost.

Example: Pepsi 2L 99¢, limit 5. They try to come back 5 times a day to buy it up because they want to resell it. No, limit is 5 per household for the entire sale, not each visit. I told you this last time, and the time before that, and the 15 times before that. And no, you can't use the coupon for a 24 pk can on it. Yes, it scans, no I won't accept it because I won't get reimbursed.


I've seen that in this area as well.  Convenient store owners are the reason for limits, because supplier brings in what they think will sell, only to have the whole supply wiped out before the normal customers can get their portion and scream at the clerks.  One summer, pepsi was selling 1ltrs for $1 which is great compared to $1.69 for a 20 oz.  The small store owners cleaned it out, and likely sold them for $1.89 at their stores.  Of course they are going to struggle with getting lower cost, because they are a single location and don't order enough bulk for a better negotiated price.  That is why big stores, gas stations, and 7elevens are kicking their butts.  I am okay with them making it, but don't mess with me getting what I want from the stores I want to shop at.

Fissile: Bob_Laublaw: Fissile: You have no idea of what goes on with New York Hasidim.

As an Arctic Circle dweller, I'm pretty far removed from the NY Hasidim scene. Embellish a little here.

==========

New York Hasidim....residing mainly in Brooklyn and Orange/Rockland counties, are an organized criminal cult.   This guy was not just stealing to make himself rich.  You can be sure million of those dollars were funneled to rabbis who use the money to build and maintain Frum schools, private security patrols, ambulance services,  health clinics...on and on it goes.  The rank and file Hasidim are totally dependent on these rabbis for everything.  They arrange marriages, provide housing, money, etc.  The rank and file then vote the way they are told to vote.  The Hasidim vote as a block, it's the most amazing thing I've ever seen.  The vote totals from the Hasidic communities look something like this:  78,345 for Candidate A -- 7 for Candidate B.  Those seven were probably people who forgot their glasses, or tripped inside the voting booth.  It's impossible to get elected dog catcher in the State of New York without the Hasidic vote.  In turn the politicians who are elected turn a blind eye to the blatant criminality taking place in the Hasidic community which includes, but is not limited to: Welfare fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, misuse of public funds, money laundering, etc, etc.

To sum up, the leaders of the Hasidim steal to provide for the rank and file so that everyone can live, but no one has to do any actual work.  In exchange, the dependent rank and file vote as a block, which gives the Hasidim enough political juice to keep stealing without fear of the pesky government taking an interest in what they are doing.


1. As an Iowan, and a Jew, I was just thrilled about what the Chasids did in Postville, Iowa. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postville:_A_Clash_of_Cultures_in_Heartl a nd_America

2. My sister's comment about what Rubashkin did in Postville is just as appropriate as what Stark was doing in New York, "That way lies the camps."

3. If you need an explanation of #2, above, here it is: because some Jews fit every stereotype the Nazis had of Jews, their felonious and despicable behavior encourages the haters.

Some Coke Drinking Guy: What a surprise, an overly religious guy was involved in shady real estate dealings.  I personally have found, that regardless the religion, the more someone is fanatical about their faith, the more they seem able to rationalize crappy behavior.  I guess they figure they are going to heaven because they pray so well, so they get to treat their fellow man like lice.


I'd amend this slightly. Reverse it, in fact. Some folks who engage in shadiness parade in a cloak of extreme religiousity. Sometimes they even believe it themselves-- to offset buried guilt and shame.

Well, this.  But still, slumlords are some of the worst people ever*.  Can we all just agree about that?

* Ok, not ever.  But in terms of being able to live surprisingly well while the people allowing you to live well suffer daily indignities because of your slumlord ass, well...

I accidentally rented from a slumlord.  The house was initially decent, at least for a college town (appearances!) and only his ex-wife with a different last name met with us and signed the lease, so it wasn't until later we realized why he did that (because there's a jaw-dropping amount of crap about him on Google, including at the time the city itself suing him - after I got out of there, the utility company joined in (for half a million dollars) and he had an assaulting an officer charge pending.  AND HE'S STILL IN TOWN.  The SO pointed him out a few months back and I was so goddamn tempted to slash his tires for a plethora of reasons I'd now rather forget).

I was working for him a few years back (desperate and needed the $$$).  One evening he was trying to get us to work more hours, we were 9 hours in during a 100 degree day @ 8/hr, and I said no, I have to get home, my dogs have been locked up for about 10 hours now and I need to let them out.  He suggested that I take my dogs to the pound so they wouldn't be a distraction and I'd be able to work more hours and a "good" job.  I kindly explained how most employers pay skilled workers $15/hr+ for the same job and unskilled's at 10-12, told him to go fark himself, got in my truck, and left.  At the time I had had my dogs for 6 years from puppies, I'm not gonna abandon them so I can make an extra 16 dollars at the wo ...

I hate to be the one to break it to you but you were a bad employee.  You knew the conditions before you ever went to work for him, slum lord or not, and agreed by accepting his offer of employment.  I am not saying that you SHOULD have taken the dogs to the pound (though they probably would have found a better home that someone making only $8.00/hr) but don't white knight yourself for whining and going back on your word thus losing the trust of a job creator.


So a bad employee leaves home an hour+ early to get to work first, was the only one with a vehicle, brought and used my own tools, and stayed as late as possible?  When I got the job it was supposed to be from between 8-4:30 with a half hour lunch, not 12+ hours, and I was supposed to get $20 a day for gas to pick up and take the crew home, which I was never paid.  Before you go and accuse someone of being a lazy, whining slacker, you should at least have the whole story and realize that I was just trying to make enough money so I had gas and food (for me, and me only) since I had already spent my savings on bills and making sure my animals were well taken care for.  The only reason I had that job is because I was in-between two good jobs (had 3 weeks downtime) and didn't want to resort to selling weed, WHICH PAYS A LIVING WAGE, while I was waiting on the contract to finalize on an $80,000 job that I eventually made 10% on, or $8000 in 2 weeks.

I take it you've never done any kind of hard work in 100 degree, 80%+ humidity weather.  Get back to me when you've hauled 80lb logs up hill in the mud during August in Arkansas for 8 hours then the boss wants you to do it some more --> When you have a job like that, are being paid next to nothing, not being paid the promised gas money, no insurance or benefits, leave the job in pain everyday, and are asked to do even more with no extra incentive, you say fark it and find a different crappy job --> being told to ditch my dogs so I could have such a "wonderful" job was the breaking point.

Hell, I bet you've never woke up in January to a foot of snow on the ground with the highway iced over, two flat tires that won't hold air, and poured the last bowl of dog food, leaving you to walk a 7 mile round trip, 3,5 miles with a 30lb bag of dog food and a 5lb bag of cat food, in said ice and snow, so you can feed the dogs and cats dinner, completely ignoring the fact that ya needed to go grocery shopping, but because of inclement weather ya hadn't worked in a week, were out of food yourself, and spent your last $20 on cat and dog food knowing you'll have nothing to eat for at least 3 days other than that last can of peas in the pantry with some hot sauce.  fark you, and fark you if you don't like my long ass sentence.  Don't ever accuse me of being a bad pet owner because I'll go without before they will, and they've never once gone without.
 
2014-01-05 11:54:16 AM

Stoker: One down, another thousand, two thousand or so to go.
How many are in the one percent? Yeah, that many to go.


You don't seem to understand what a "one-percent'er" is.  They call this guy a "millionaire" in the newspaper, but, that does not mean shiat.  What was his net worth?   I could buy a property for $10 million, which is mortgaged for $9.9 million, does that make me a multi-millionaire?  They say this guy had a lot of property, but, they say that he owed money to everybody.  This guy was no more a one-percent'er than I am.

The story of the Hasidic community funding their religious schools in Jersey with money for public schools blew my freaking mind.
The Asbury Park Press's 11-page expose on Lakewood Public Schools, "Cheated," is (finally!) online. For those playing catch-up, Lakewood is an unusual district: while 5,600 children attend the public schools, the district spends almost ¼ of its $130 million annual budget on transportation and special education costs for 22,000 children who attend Hasidic private day schools. The School Board -- 8 of 9 members belong to the Hasidic community -- defers on all matters to Board Attorney Michael Inzelbuch who, until he was fired last week, made about $500,000 per year. The Board also just fired its Superintendent, Lydia Silva, and has been through a multiple high school principals and business administrators in just the last few years. A new community group, Lakewood UNITE, has attempted to shed light on distressingly low performance among the all-minority kids who attend Lakewood Public Schools and Board member shenanigans.

I was working for him a few years back (desperate and needed the $$$).  One evening he was trying to get us to work more hours, we were 9 hours in during a 100 degree day @ 8/hr, and I said no, I have to get home, my dogs have been locked up for about 10 hours now and I need to let them out.  He suggested that I take my dogs to the pound so they wouldn't be a distraction and I'd be able to work more hours and a "good" job.  I kindly explained how most employers pay skilled workers $15/hr+ for the same job and unskilled's at 10-12, told him to go fark himself, got in my truck, and left.  At the time I had had my dogs for 6 years from puppies, I'm not gonna abandon them so I can make an extra 16 dollars at the wo ...

I hate to be the one to break it to you but you were a bad employee.  You knew the conditions before you ever went to work for him, slum lord or not, and agreed by accepting his offer of employment.  I am not saying that you SHOULD have taken the dogs to the pound (though they probably would have found a better home that someone making only $8.00/hr) but don't white knight yourself for whining and going back on your word thus losing the trust of a job creator.

8/10. Was going to go with 7 but gave you an extra point for job creator.

I scored him much lower for being so obvious. Lost a whole point for "job creator"... dead giveaway. 2/10.


Yeah, job creator should have given it away, but I take attacks against my dogs very personally.  I've had them for 9 years now and they're the children I've never had.  Except for 1 hospital visit where I was in isolation for 4 days, mrsa staph on my finger, we've never been apart for more than 12 hours, seriously.

Met a Hsidic Jewish man once. Wore an orthodox suit and had a long beard. One of the biggest a-holes I ever met in my life.

I hear that most of them are - is this something they're taught to be?

zetar: Fissile: Bob_Laublaw: Fissile: You have no idea of what goes on with New York Hasidim.

As an Arctic Circle dweller, I'm pretty far removed from the NY Hasidim scene. Embellish a little here.

==========

New York Hasidim....residing mainly in Brooklyn and Orange/Rockland counties, are an organized criminal cult.   This guy was not just stealing to make himself rich.  You can be sure million of those dollars were funneled to rabbis who use the money to build and maintain Frum schools, private security patrols, ambulance services,  health clinics...on and on it goes.  The rank and file Hasidim are totally dependent on these rabbis for everything.  They arrange marriages, provide housing, money, etc.  The rank and file then vote the way they are told to vote.  The Hasidim vote as a block, it's the most amazing thing I've ever seen.  The vote totals from the Hasidic communities look something like this:  78,345 for Candidate A -- 7 for Candidate B.  Those seven were probably people who forgot their glasses, or tripped inside the voting booth.  It's impossible to get elected dog catcher in the State of New York without the Hasidic vote.  In turn the politicians who are elected turn a blind eye to the blatant criminality taking place in the Hasidic community which includes, but is not limited to: Welfare fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, misuse of public funds, money laundering, etc, etc.

To sum up, the leaders of the Hasidim steal to provide for the rank and file so that everyone can live, but no one has to do any actual work.  In exchange, the dependent rank and file vote as a block, which gives the Hasidim enough political juice to keep stealing without fear of the pesky government taking an interest in what they are doing.

Interesting. I have a pal who has gradually gone Chasid over the years, and his business dealings (including with Jews less observant or ultraorthodox than himself) seem to reflect a "screw your neighbour" mentality I find a little unbecoming. But if your religious beliefs include notions of "chosen" and "covenant" and so on, it's clear that if one is not in the club, one cannot expect to be treated like a human being, because you only exist to service the greater good of the tiny sect.

Secular, or at least, non-ultra, Israelis of course have known this for decades. They've kept the serpent well fed, and shouldn't be surprised at the outcome of stealth theocracy.

In Williamsburg, thousands of Satmar chasidim attending the  Sheva Brachotfollowing the wedding of the grandson of the Satmar Rebbe were entertained by a pair of 20-year-old identical twins from France who are studying at 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, headquarters of the Lubavitcher chassidic movement.

Don't forget that he was an......ahem....."alleged" kiddie-diddler as well.

I wonder what finally pushed everyone over the edge? That he was a slumlord or a pedofork?

K3rmy: gwowen: skeevy420: FrancoFile: This has the potential to be an epic thread.  Let's see how many Fark hot-buttons we're touching.

1. NY Post
2. Hasidic Jew
3. Williamsburg aka hipsterville
4. Real estate

Excuse me while I got get the popcorn maker out of the pantry.

5. Forcefully touching a young teen girl

Don't forget:

6. Loan sharking
7. Home foreclosure scams

All of these are accusations have no basis in fact.  Of course people will spew them, especially Farkers, as 1) they are safe behind anonymity and 2) the accused is unable to defend himself (being dead)

What we do have here is a person who is dead under suspicious circumstances.  He did accumulate some material assets before his death.  He provided a place to live to others for a monthly fee.

Anything else is pure conjecture, be it kicking puppies or helping with Little Suzie's bake sale.


Touching the little girl is not conjecture.

I hear ya, no hard feelings.  I almost bit on the job creator part -- one month his net income dropped to about 10K/month because a few renters left, so he fired a crew of 6 except for 2 guys  (so monthly payout went from ~7680/m to ~2560/m) .  Apparently only making ~3K/month (from just the rent houses, btw; not including his store) profit isn't enough  Great job creator, huh.  People like him are the reason people like myself have little faith in Capitalism and the All Mighty Economy.  He honestly and genuinely means well, but he's just so out of touch with reality that he seriously thinks $8/hr is good pay these days, and that getting rid of my dogs was just fine and wouldn't be an issue with me because they're just dogs.  He's also a Republican with Tea Party signs in his yard and the stickers on his car.  I probably should have started the first story with his political stance since that would have explained it all in 1.

Using sarcasm to make a point does not make K3rmy a troll. He makes a good point. The ridiculous nature of American employment means that employers feel as though they can make all kinds of arbitrary demands, from urine testing for drugs to suggestions that one abandon family to do a "good" job. Watch the bumper stickers you put on your car, too.
