StreetlightInTheGhetto: The story of the Hasidic community funding their religious schools in Jersey with money for public schools blew my freaking mind.


=====================

They did the same thing in Rockland County  See this New York Magazine article. http://nymag.com/news/features/east-ramapo-hasidim-2013-4/

Have a look what is going on in Orange County http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-n-myers/kiryas-yoel-theocracy-in- a merica_b_1124505.html

El Viento: Hasidim mafia on Discovery Channel in 3,2,1....


The Jewish mafia is a real thing

CSB

My dad was a builder in NoVA/DC, and one of his clients was an old Jewish man who had a lot of varied business interests, including an Italian restaurant in Arlington VA. It wasn't a very good place and didn't do well.

One night, it burned down and my dad was called to help inspect the place, along with the owner, his partners, the fire marshal and insurance adjuster.

We were looking at the ruins, and saw a bunch of anti Semitic graffiti and swastikas spray painted on the walls.

The owner and his partners were bemoaning the cruel nazis who had burned their business when 12 year old WW2 history buff me piped up:

"But dad, it wasn't Nazis who did this - the swastikas are backwards "

Dad just looked down at me and said, quietly, "Shut. The. Fark. Up"


/the old guys got their insurance money

Heh, no one noticed the Post's wonderful editing job?

A Stark building at 239 Banker St. in Greenpoint was so decrepit, the city issued a vacate order in 2009 - and numerous tenants were left to chase Stark down in futile efforts to retrieve the four-month deposits Stark had demanded of them, one tenant organizer said.

"I've had many conversations with him, and of course in many of those conversations I wanted to kill him myself," joked Greg Hanlon, who lived in a Stark-owned building at 239 Banker St. in Greenpoint.

That building was so decrepit, the city would issue a vacate order in 2009 - and numerous tenants were left to chase Stark down in futile efforts to retrieve the four-month deposits Stark had demanded of them, one tenant organizer said.

Warlordtrooper: I loath to defend this asshat because the guillotine would have been a more appropriate punishment for him but:

"He was involved in shady business deals, was known to carry around a lot of money and had a sealed arrest for forcible touching" in his past, one law-enforcement source told The Post.

I hope this officer gets fired and sued.  Sealed court documents are sealed for a reason, the public are not supposed to know about them.


"Had a sealed arrest" isn't the same thing as expungement. That's just one of many kinds of seals, and it wouldn't even be in the cop's system if it was, but if he learned about it elsewhere it's fair game.

fark this scum bag- I hope it hurt.
 After many years of scummy landlords I finally lucked out. My landlady is awesome! I pay about half the going rate in my neighborhood ($600 a month for a two bedroom with a garage, covered carport and fenced in yard in a decent area). When my AC broke this summer she bought me a new one that night and knocked a bit off of my rent for installing it. She came by a few days ago to discuss renovations including new tile floors, a remodeled kitchen, new windows and new rain gutters, all of which she'll pay me to install. Of course I work for her super cheap in appreciation of the low rent and the fact that she's a nice person.
Not to stretch my credibility too far, but I also had an awesome lawyer one time, too.

Strip away the nice hat and suit, and look at his eyes.

Not often, but sometimes like this, you can see selfishness, hubris and evil in a man's eyes.

I'm Exacta-boxing this one--horse #1 Other Hassidics and horse #2 unpaid contractors who are mobbed up. Ask Arnold Rothstein about the New York Jewish mafia, oh wait:

On November 4, 1928, Arnold Rothstein was shot and mortally wounded during a business meeting at Manhattan's Park Central Hotel at Seventh Avenue near 55th Street. The shooting was reportedly linked to debts owed from a 3-day long, high-stakes poker game in October.

Hmm, deja vu...

I believe you, cause I have a landlady like that. She manages 85 properties (mostly single family homes) but still remembers you and which one you live in if you run into her somewhere. If something's broken, there is somebody there THAT DAY, even if it is minor. If it is something minor that you can do yourself (for example, the thermostat shiat the bed earlier this winter and I just replaced it), you don't need to ask first, just take care of it,bring the receipt for whatever you had to buy to her office and she will cut you a check right then and give you a rent break the next month for your trouble.

So much better than some of the scumbags I've rented from in the past, and they are just like lawyers...99% of them make the other 1% look bad.

There are two economies.  And the below ground one is chocked full of slimy, hateful, greedy bastards who use people like pack animals, slaves or blood hosts for their leeching.  And if you take a look at it, that economy has been steadily moving upchain from beer joint back rooms and ghetto walk ups to Wall St. for a long while.  This guy was just a weasel fronting dumps and kiting invoices.  All the successful criminals have nice houses in the Hamptons and BMWs and Wall St. offices.

Or Bugsy Siegel, Meyer Lansky, Mo Dalitz, Arthur Flegenheimer aka Dutch Shultz, Louis Lepke Burchalter, Mickey Cohen, etc., etc. A fairly impressive collection of really bad men from a group of people that usually aren't stereotyped that way in the popular culture, unlike, say Italians.
 
2014-01-05 04:53:31 PM  

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.


When I was in college I had a Hasidic Jew as a roommate for one summer.  Easily the worst person I've ever lived with, and I lived with a fundamentalist Muslim AND fundie Christian for an entire year.  I don't think all Hasidim are like that, but there's a certain amount of obnoxiousness that comes with being a fundamentalist anything.  He was just the worst about it.

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.

Oh, man.
You had to screw up my wonderful statement... with logic.
Damn you, man, damn you. ;)

K3rmy: skeevy420
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.


1/10. You were doing well until you had to sling "job creator" into it; that's an obvious trolling tell.

There were a LOT Jewish gangsters in the '20s and '30s (Bugsy Siegel, Meyer Lansky, the Purple Gang in Detroit, etc., etc., etc.), but very few passed the business along to their kids. Also, dumbasses who spraypaint swastikas on Jewish-owned buildings frequently do them backwards, because they are mouth-breathing retards.

I mean, sure, there are Jewish gangsters, just like there are Irish, German and English-descended gangsters, but it's hardly a trend.

mbillips: I mean, sure, there are Jewish gangsters, just like there are Irish, German and English-descended gangsters, but it's hardly a trend.



Believe what you like - it was common knowledge, at least when I was growing up, that the "mafia" in DC was Jewish.  See "Growing Up Jewish in the Mob" by Cohan - from the book cover "~~Growing Up Jewish In The Mob is about a girl growing up in Washington, DC, as a Jewish American Princess in the mafia.  She is a Daddy's girl but reality sets in when the FBI and DC Cops come calling."

I'm sure you'll 'poopoo' this as not being "real" mafia, or whatever, because it's not New Yawk and the 5 families, but, yeah, it was a trend for much of the 20th century (my CSB was from the 70's - and those guys were old;  old enough to have been "OGs" from the prohibition era).

I didn't realize 1,2 and 4 were fark hot buttons and I wouldn't have known that Williamsburg=hipsters without someone saying so.

I feel like a hot button bonanza would be more like an atheist off duty cop was enjoying a well done steak with plenty of A1 ketchup, wait catsup and a bud light stands his ground against a smoking hot hipster girl who was brought here as a child when her parents illegally immigrated and she was merely going door to door raising awareness for global warming and selling girl scout cookies to craft brewers.

CSB indeed, but you'd think that the one group who would know which way swastikas point would be Jewish folks of a vintage to have been at least adolescents during WW2.  The white supremacists in this country are generally ignint enough to get that fundamental thing wrong.

Fair point, but it doesn't matter.

Everyone there *knew* who set the fire, and they didn't need some smartass little kid pointing out any possible "flaws" in the story .... ;-)
