Bicycles are not cars, nor should they be regulated as cars. A car's "footprint" - environmentally, in terms of its impact on public safety, use of shared/public resources, etc. - far exceeds that of a bicycle.

Since there are many upsides to encouraging bicycle use over car use, bikes should NOT have to obey every rule that cars do, as a way of rewarding the use of a bike. Having said that, there clearly need to be common sense rules of the road spelled out for bicycles. I'll start:

- No riding on sidewalks
- Go with flow of traffic where there are no dedicated bike lanes
- Going against the flow of traffic permitted only where there are dedicated bike lanes, bike going with flow of traffic has right of way
- Bikes turning at intersection must slow, but are not obligated to stop if the intersection is clear
- Bikes must stop at red light/stop sign, but are permitted to proceed on red ONLY if intersection is clear

etc.

Everyone knows that the "investigative committee" is extremely partisan. Further, millions of taxpayer money has been spent because of them. Do you really think they'll ever admit they've gone too far?

The federal prosecutors are doing a REAL investigation, and they are nonpartisan. And guess what, they haven't been able to find anything.

If, in the end, they don't nab Christie but have been able to flush out several high ranking corrupt officials (as has been done due to the investigation and not remotely at all due to Christie having a moral compass) are you going to claim that the investigation should have never happened? What makes it a waste of money? Is it just that you don't like that it's gone on longer or that it was even investigated at all?

I'm sorry, but when there is corruption and abuse of power in this magnitude, you investigate. I have zero problems investigating the IRS claims. If people are fired as a result of corruption, I consider it a win for all.

Tevlin's killer isn't a true jihadist in my view, just a depraved, worthless piece of shit loser that will rot in hell. And it scared the crap out of us, since he was killed down the street from our golf club (and we know he was camping out less than a mile away the whole time he was on the lam).

Noooo, you thundering dunderhead, hate crimes apply to more than just white people.

"Although state laws vary, current statutes permit federal prosecution of hate crimes committed on the basis of a person's protected characteristics of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability."

If he killed all these people because they were American or non-muslim, then it is a hate crime. I don't believe that was the case, but if you do then it is a hate crime.


Using this extremely broad definition of "hate crime," the 9/11 hijackers were not terrorists but instead merely committed a hate crime because they killed people just for being Americans.

Now if you want to say one can be both a terrorist and commit a hate crime, I'd agree with you. But that's not at all what the clueless person I responded to said. The fact that the terrorist killed people of different races reinforces the idea that he was a terrorist (in the traditional sense) as opposed to committing hate crimes (in the traditional sense).

Finally, the entirety of your post predictably consists of scarecrows, as I did not say hate crimes only apply to white people. So much anger and hostility towards someone you invite for a beer :(

Re: Speed bump between 8th and 9th on Erie.

The claims are now being bumped back to the city. I went to City Hall and picked up the 7 page claim form to fill out and return with photos, insurance paperwork and estimates from a body shop.

I just happened to drive down 8th street this morning and the speed bump on 8th by West Hamilton is a perfectly reasonable and nicely painted hump... nothing like the one on St. Pauls that I hit. I haven't seen the one on Erie everyone's talking about but it's probably similar.

I applaud her for speaking the truth. There are times when I wanted to make such statements to people loitering, littering, and generally behaving like pieces of crap. We see too much of it in Jersey City and enough is enough.

People are hating on her because she is an "interloper", yes god forbid someone highlight the problems plaguing one of the poorest neighborhoods in NJ instead of working some patronage mill position while Rome burns.

Do you actually know anything about the murder? Doesn't sound like you have a clue what you're talking about.

Court documents indicated he was motivated by holy jihad. He told police this was a "just kill." An act of vengeance and retaliation for US military action in the Middle East. "All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life."

A hate crime would be if he killed the guy because he was white. Which is not the case. So you couldn't be more wrong.

I'm bringing this thread back from the dead.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a bar showing out of market NFL games on Sunday? In particular I'm hoping to find some other Buffalo Bills fans, preferably in JC, but willing to go to HOB if there's a specific Bills spot.

Even if it's not specific to the Bills, what's your favorite spot with Sunday Ticket in JC that's willing to put on whatever games are requested?

I've dealt with Dave on an occasional basis ever since he was a mayor's aide and was the point person for various historic preservation issues. He was always a hard worker and didn't sugar coat the city's position or try to BS us.

Does he deserve every position he's gotten? Obviously he has political instincts and involvement. But he's a hard worker and a bright person as well.

The hypocrisy is stunning!!! Dave Donnelly is and has been a marginal city employee for his entire career with the city. Steven talked about getting away from the political paybacks and moving to a more professional city government. He failed miserably with that promise. He never made an effort to even fulfill it. As I have said, the hypocrisy is stunning!!!

I would like to hear the Mayor's office admit the city made a mistake on these heights and shoddy installation/rollout and apologize. A simple "we realize now mistakes were made and we're doing everything we can to fix it going foprward" would go a long waqy.
