Controversy swirls around Jersey City synagogue

Controversy swirls around Jersey City synagogue

JERSEY CITY -- A three-story synagogue on Martin Luther King Drive is at the center of a controversy in a rapidly changing inner-city neighborhood.

The leader of the area's business group has asked the city to shut down the shul, pointing to zoning laws that largely do not permit houses of worship along Martin Luther King Drive. Members of the Hasidic Jewish community are objecting, and tell The Jersey Journal the location is a community center, not a formal synagogue.

The tussle comes as the historically black neighborhood has become more attractive to Hasidic Jews who say they have been priced out of Brooklyn. They say the Martin Luther King Drive location is a temporary meeting place as they make plans for a larger, more formal synagogue.

Like I said on another thread... I am 100% certain that we will not see concentration camps being staged at LPS.

Much to the disappointment of the wild-eyed, aluminum hat wearing, bomb throwing leftist talking about the next 4 years of the Trump Administration.

Granted there is a fine line to straddle, implementing laws and regulations that encourage a positive business climate without appearing to be providing "corporate welfare". The foreign owned GM and Chrysler were not part of the financial meltdown, but they were added to get democrat support for "The Bailout" It was a kiss for the unions.

But at least business owners will not have to listen to the socialist mantra that swept the country from Obama, Warren and Reich types.... "You did not build your business... the govt. did"

That foolishness coming from people who never created private sector jobs or worry about meeting a payroll every week.

Tell me how funny this is:

Pence Signed a Law Requiring Burial or Cremation for Aborted Fetuses:

The sweeping abortion bill that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed into law in March gained national attention for prohibiting women from electing to have an abortion due to the race, gender, or disability of the fetus. But the bill contained another unusual provision: It required that aborted fetuses receive what amounts to a funeral.

Ahahahahahahaha . What? Holy Sh*t

Tax appeal against tax assessor's property can proceed


Wolosky's case against Holenstein is believed to be the first of its kind in Sussex County, and one of the first statewide, involving a tax appeal by a private citizen against a government official.

He filed the case in April under a little-known statute that allows taxpayers not only to contest their own property tax assessments but also to appeal the assessment on anyone else's property within the same county.

N.J.S.A. 54:3-21(a)(1) states that a taxpayer feeling "aggrieved" by his or her own assessment or "discriminated against" by the assessment on someone else's property in the same county may file an appeal against that person's assessment.

United Technologies (Carrier's owner) just played Trump and Pence

AAahahahahahahahahaha

In exchange for allowing United Technologies to continue to offshore more than 1,000 jobs, Trump will reportedly give the company tax and regulatory favors that the corporation has sought. Just a short few months ago, Trump was pledging to force United Technologies to “pay a damn tax.” He was insisting on very steep tariffs for companies like Carrier that left the United States and wanted to sell their foreign-made products back in the United States. Instead of a damn tax, the company will be rewarded with a damn tax cut. Wow! How’s that for standing up to corporate greed? How’s that for punishing corporations that shut down in the United States and move abroad?

In essence, United Technologies took Trump hostage and won. And that should send a shock wave of fear through all workers across the country.

What did Trump say about "never let the enemy know what you are doing!" Guess what? He showed corporate America exactly how to manipulate and defeat him. Threaten to move jobs out of Murica and get a SWEEEEEET tax deal from Donald "I didn't think of that" Trump. Also, you can still move some jobs, which Carrier is doing, and then f**k everybody over in 2018. That's YOUR boy.

Nice try but Jill Stein raised the money for the re-count and Clinton's people already said they don't see the point but will observe anyway. Voter Fraud is the bogeyman of the right wing. Even dopey Trump is still whining about it.

$200 million divide by 18 = about 1.1 million each with some having to repay $400,000 leaving 700,000 each at the cost of 2 years prison or home detention

That's 350,000 a year to sit in prison .... where do I sign up!


Imagine how much more impressed you would be if you had done the math correctly: it is 19 people (not 18) and since the total amount scammed was 200 MM, the per person share would 10.5 MM, not 1.1 MM. And, he only has to repay 400K, which means he gets to enjoy the other 10 MM. That's 5 MM per year to sit in prison (or, at home) which is a GREAT deal. As you said, where do I sign up??


Where does it say that each culprit had to pay $400K? The article only says this dude had to pay $400K. Not event that "some had to pay 400K". I also doubt they divided the pie evenly.

If you do end up with a high assessment after a market correction, you can always appeal. The reverse is not true, you can't get the city to raise your neighbor's assessment just because it's wildly wrong.

5 year revals might be impractical, but 10 year combined with a rolling reval, where it gets reset on sale, would definitely be an improvement on the shitshow we have. At least buyers would know for sure what their taxes would be.

This is just an observation, but it would appear that bicycle riders take their lives in their hands while being two wheeled in Jersey City street traffic.
I can understand a desire to ride a bike both for utility and recreation, but given the state of mind of a lot of drivers on our roads today, is it really wise to be amongst them? No amount of enforcement can bring you back to life or health from a serious injury at the hands of distracted drivers we're seeing on the roads today
. If it's the joy of bicycle riding that you're pursuing wouldn't Lincoln park or Liberty State Park be a better place to safely enjoy yourself? Given what appears to be the norm for development in Jersey City a lot more cars than bicycles will be in the offing in the near future. I would think that associations seeking more safety measures to be implemented for rider safety look for more amenities to be created where the road needn't be shared with motor vehicles. Drivers simply can't be trusted with bike riders' safety regardless of how many laws are engaged and created in the effort.

It should be current fair market value. So it's possible a brownstone could be assessed at $1.5 million with the market crashing 2018, cutting the value in half. All the more reason to do revals at least every 5 years.
