Westhampton Beach Eruv Proposal Moves Forward

That was directed to hmptnlocal...not double standard" Nov 5, 10 8:58 PM

If you choose to label us as comedians or fools how exactly would you describe yourself?

Again, name calling debases your argument. I offered three good put downs but you opted to guy with "comedians" and "fools". Next time I would like to be referred to as a ninnymuggin...just to see you type it.

I would like to point out that if this headline is true "Letter Suggests Synagogue Had Sights Set On Larger Religious Boundary Nov 3, 2010 11:24"

In contrast many people who posted here (most anonymously I concede) have been completely honest.

Ya know Davidsline you are right to fell alighted by being called "one of them". That is a demonstrative pronoun that is being used demonstratively wrong.

But I had implored you awhile ago to drop the "bigot" comeback. You have used at waaaay too much and it now has the effectiveness of a car hown outside the midtwon tunnel.

I am no friend of Davidsline b/c he proves himself to be the planet after Saturn, but you J Totta might actually be create a new scoring level a tthe bottom of the IQ test.

Your poor grammar put forth 'but I certainly seems more Jews are apposed to this than any other group of people". I won't correct you errors but I might call you out on the proof thta more jews are opposed than any other "group" (I take exception to group b/c if you are not a jew you are a gentile). I know seems is a qualifier but let's just deal with facts.

Instead of the word bigot which can be applied in any direction and devolves to school yard name calling, why not call those who who offend you "Tottas"

When I am dealing with a winging three year old who has s single mindset and is on the verge of a tantrum, I often say "now don't take a davidsline with me young lady"

Whooo hooo 7 people posted before you weighed in. Now high hat and I have a bet on how long it takes for you to call someone a "bigot". C'mon Davidsline...make me a winner!!!" Nov 19, 10 2:14 PM

davidsline line is now resorting to sarcasm because the schoolyard name calling is ineffective. Sarcasm is the lowest form of humor...even below the pun. The pun is painful at times but requires a touch of wit.

Does anyone even know if davids line is even a resident of the area in question or is he simply the paid shill that he sounds like?" Nov 21, 10 11:37 PM

Oh no I've already thrown that one out before. You just missed it.

It just seems peculiar to me that you talk of the eruv and the related issues from a more macro or 50,000 foot view. You never really speak of what it's like to live on the same street as the synagogue or more local issues.

It makes one think you might think never have been to Sunset avenue and think Quiogue and Quogue are the same thing." Nov 22, 10 9:33 AM

As of a year ago, an inordinate number of homes were for sale on the back side of Sunset. Why they were selling is their business but something bothered them." Nov 22, 10 11:10 PM


You played the bigot card like you were playing "war" with a pinochle deck.

You tried sarcasm....which frankly was so weak (heck you even had to tell someone it was sarcasm...then again maybe that's better than some cheesy emoticon)

Now I am faced with schoolyard banter which mirrors a kindergarten taunt.

Can you even tell a knock knock joke?

Look you have a rail thin position you want to beat into anyone who dares post. In fact you seem to be the sole person expressing that viewpoint with such ardor. Sadly, you are also a bit boring yet I think you are well educated but not necessarily worldly. Others who posted don't have an advocate position but had a more iterative exchange. While they may not agree with you they do concede valid points. These people seem more intelligent than your Dean Faber rants.

As I mentioned once before, you might have good ideas but you are a social hand grenade.

At the risk of speaking for many I think you should consider the rabbi's reputation among many:
1. That ugly "information session" which you can view on You Tube did not put him in a good light
2. The code violations which he continues to flout
3. The latest effort with the eruv seems to be an end around.

The fact is I don't trust the guy or his intentions. Maybe others feel the same way. Have you asked? I think the issue is slightly larger than your rail thin mission" Nov 22, 10 11:22 PM

West Hampton Dunes Village, Residents Challenge Authority Of Town Trustees

Hey Irv, you seem to have some level of intelligence but name calling and requesting biblical plagues makes you sound like you are in a fit of hysteria instead of a logical debate. My advice is kill the shill and you might get heard.

My random thoughts for which I am partially right and surely to be fully scorched:

WHD has some of the ugliest architecture north of Cape May

WHD really does look like a land grab. WTF do you do if you need a quart of milk? It's not a village by in any commercial sense - only as a differentiator from other governments.

Talking of beach access in WHD, WHB or anywhere else is inane if you can't park on Dune Road. Think about it.

Between owning houses I rented for three years. I looked at a few places in WHD b/c I wanted beach access. My conversation went like this "how much?" Answer: "60K for Julyand August" I parried "Don't you know there is a recession and I looked at a dozen places in WHD all of which are available and it's mid June?" Answer "I know but that is what I need to get to cover my carrying costs" Dumb spec buyers.

Just for the record if you are wiped out by a hurricane or storm surge do not go crying about it. You were the people who built so close to the water. Current Code differs w/ the pilings requirement but let me tell you it does not make you safe. Once the shift the whole house goes south fast.

Just for the record, I respect your right to protect your ugly houses but don't think a 'wrong' in history perpetually makes you 'right'" Nov 29, 10 11:34 PM

Seems to me if my house is an eyesore and unsafe it is my responsibility to clear it. Come the next blow down, I think the WHD homeowners should be responsible for their flotsam and jetsam.

Read Sudden Sea about the 1938 Hurricane. In RI those houses were built on the same spit of land as WHD. They were smart enough not to rebuild. Why would we be so dumb?

Also why isn't any new mud/sand called wetlands and preserved as such?" Nov 30, 10 3:19 PM

Flood insurance NEVER pays for the value of the land. That doesn't matter if you are in WHD or anywhere else.

What do the Trustees have to do with the protecting the bay and the beach. My understanding was it was the Army Corp of engineers that did not complete a series of jetties that they promised. Am I wrong?

And how can you say "out of control" when WHD is suing for multiple bank accounts? THAT is out of control!

Do you really believe what you write? Your crap town has no commerce, one stop sign, a rent a cop, and architecture that looks like it's from the SIMS.

Westhampton Beach Considers Buying Portable Ice Skating Rink

I love the idea of a rink but you could never have a real hockey game on it. You can play "shinny" but even then without boards or a snowbank to catch an errant puck it would get frustrating fast. Also the boards must "give" if not you are playing "no check" hockey.

Does anyone find irony in the fact that part of the lawsuit focuses on having separate accounts for funds (generally speaking a very good financial practice if and when authorized) and it was "comingling" that got the East hampton Controller in trouble.

Group Pushing For Religious Boundary Files Suit Against Southampton Town, Westhampton Beach And Quogue

Note well "“Our efforts for rational discussion and fair treatment have been met with harsh words and obvious discrimination,” stated Marvin Tenzer, president of the East End Eruv Association, in a press release that accompanied a copy of the lawsuit. “These villages and town are violating our constitutional and civil rights by engaging in an active campaign to obstruct our ability to practice our religion.”

A. if the effort for rational discussion was the You Tube video of the meetin gin the Synagogue than he needs to re-define rational. That was "let me tell you what we are going to do meeting"

B. It was met with an ugly rancor

C. Note how he says villages and towns and not governments. If you substitute the words the aargument has less weight.

D. Ole Marv just damned everyone by calling out the whole Village

E. Where is DAVIDSLINE? That poster is always late to the game.

F. Notice they filed in Brooklyn" Jan 13, 11 10:05 PM

here is my issue with lawsuits: they are the ultimate fight. Threats are meaningless once one fails to act on it. Now that they sued there is no room for discussion or negotiation (though you can on the side). Mayor _______ would you be open to an eruv "You know I'd like to comment on an important matter such as that but since we are being sued I'll keep all my comments to myself".

Maybe it's me but if someone just sued me and I KNOW that they have building code violations, I'd be on them so fast to cure them.

But i know these litigant types they'll counter "Why are you giving me grief over the building code violations?"
Answer "because you sued us and brought everything to a head"
Litigant type "but that is a different issue...surely your not going to let that get in the way of a good relationship.

View The Kabot DWI Police Tape

What is she guilty of?

One can say:
1. She's an inattentive if not bad driver
2. The counting thing is bad 13, 14, 15, 13....
3. Inability to follow directions hurts


1. There is no indication she failed the eye exam and even if she did that does not mean she's intoxicated. It may simply mean she's an older person without great peripheral vision (common for eyeglass wearers)
1A It doesn't help staring into cruiser lights and how they flashed the flashlights in her eyes
2. It seems they would have tested her until she failed something. Anyone would be hard pressed to hold their leg up for 13 seconds
3. Most damaging is that the idiot officer stood in front of the video camera

Did she have a drink? yes, the idiot admitted it. Was she intoxicated? Could go either way. Could a good lawyer get her off...you bet! THIS WAS A POORLY EXECUTED ARREST.

I'd argue too that I was right to refuse a field sobriety test because I hadn't overtly failed the eye or walk tests. They are only testing b/c the other two were inconclusive. That is not right. " Feb 2, 11 2:44 PM

I was very quick to point out she was not stellar at all in following directions. Clearly that works against her. Still as you aptly noted the lights and nervousness may be contributing factors.

The circumstantial evidence is not flattering but let me ask a question. If you did not know the circumstances of the stop and did not hear the audio might you think differently? Would it be possible that because everyone in exchange 288 knows this is a DUI arrest, then we are looking for signs of intoxication? if you saw this video without the sound and I told you that you were watching the video of a woman being informed her husband was just killed might you think she was showing restraint and incredible composure?

I do not condone drunk driving. I also am not saying she is not guilty (BTW no one is ever found "innocent"). What I offer is that We and officers are often pre-conditioned as to what we want to believe and our "evidence" is made to support our hypothesis.

Oh and BTW NEVER say you were drinking...ever, then they have to test you. If pulled over...say nothing...ever." Feb 2, 11 5:23 PM

That and the fact that the tape was stopped and restarted is against department regulations is good enough for me to acquit." Feb 2, 11 5:24 PM

BTW ya know she was going over Turkey bridge to minimize exposure on Montauk Highway. She should have turned left at the Temple. Better yet her defense should be she was on official business trying to figure out where the lechis will go." Feb 2, 11 5:30 PM

Frankly I would be happy if I were her. If there is no tape than it is merely her word against two officers. Now that there is a tape and it is inconclusive in some opinions, ya'd think the WHB PD just did the defense a favor.

And yes, it is circumstantial and not prima facia because it is open to interpretation (albeit not as much as a lack of witness) but it is not a finger print nor a blow test." Feb 2, 11 10:57 PM

Right, sounds silly on the second read. I should have added I've broken bones in both my feet over the last three years and while I can hold my leg out perfectly straight, I have a nice wobble in either planted foot.

Having this video on here is wrong. She's a person with a family and a life. While a public figure that does mean a figure of public ridicule. Like Rex Ryan, you really don't want your kink broadcast to the world now do you? " Feb 2, 11 11:04 PM

I respectfully disagree.

Yes it may be evidence that was seen at a Grand Jury hearing and it may be submitted to trial...but there has been no trial. And until a verdict is rendered, she is presumed innocent. There is still PLENTY of time to cop a plea to a lesser charge or have it dismissed. Just because it could go to trial does not mean it is right for the world to view it.

Frankly it is embarrassing. I for one know if my children were in the car they'd be frightened and concerned at the least...and that is without even describing their ages.

You think there is not detriment to the family? C'mon...the whole dang county has seen this? If she had school age children do you think there would never be some snide comment? I don't think so." Feb 3, 11 1:44 PM
