To Step On Your Friend

I had an interesting conversation with my brother about Pesach earlier this afternoon. Of course, we were talking about the stress of any Yom Tov, and the fact that this one in particular costs so much money see here here or any post here. The problem we talked about is that we are so overwhelmed with people asking for tzedakah that we fail to restrain our collective brethren, the Orthodox communit,y from taking advantage of the stupid people, or as I like to call them, "Chumrah Impaired" There is a rescission. The yeshivas can't pay their bills, Lion of Zion has his tuition raised, and all we can do if find ways to charge others for stupidity.
