Re: Hoboken Flood Insurance
Home away from home
Home away from home


It's not the City of Hoboken that requires flood insurance, it's the lenders who underwrite in the building that require it. It's also nothing new. The Sky Club was built on what used to be a body of water-I think it was a swamp-so it's always been in a flood zone and always required to have flood insurance. But you don't have to buy it yourself. The condo association buys it with the money you pay in HOA fees.

I wouldn't dignify your comment by increasing the traffic on your site, Terrence. That is a bush league story. You write an article about a name that someone is called, build the foundation by repeating innuendo, factual inaccuracies and outright lies - giving voice to them all over again - all for the point of what, exactly? To muse about a "gambit" that may or may not work? You've always struck me as more professional than that.

Put another way - if enough people from the Fulop camp were to start calling Healy a pedophile and came up with a lot of pictures of Healy with kids around him - you'd go with that, right?
well it would certainly be news that people are trying to paint him that way, yeah.

Razza is very good, but small and pricy. I think Roman Nose is better, double the size and close to the same quality, but both are way better than any other downtown options (Rustique is OK).

I spoke too soon! Healy's hack did not sent out the entire article. The email made cuts from the original piece. What got cut?

CUT FROM HEALY'S VERSION:
"Fulop noted that he has the endorsement of prominent Democrats like Freeholder Bill O'Dea, Congressman Donald Payne Jr. and former Hudson County Democratic Organization chair Bernard Kenny.

CUT FROM HEALY'S VERSION:
While Weingart said such accusations can “backfire” if it’s clear the target is not a Republican-in-Democratic-clothing, he noted that some candidates might want to register for the opposing party depending on where they want to run.

“If you want to be active in politics in Jersey City … you would probably want to be a Democrat no matter what you thought,” he said.

Re: FYI: Laws Concerning When and How to Shovel Snow

According to the city's website referenced below, 'Residents who are removing snow from around a vehicle, sidewalk, or home are required to pile all shoveled snow against the curb line'.

Well maybe it doesn't have to be done by 10 pm tonight, but it must be done by sunrise. From below,''within 8 hours of snowfall or by sunrise, whichever comes first'Quote:

There are a couple of points to take from this.

First is the degree of desperation it reflects from Healy's sinking ship. This is what he's got? Really?

Second is the underlying reality. Of course Fulop is a Democrat. Healy knows that Steve Fulop is a Democrat because Fulop, working with Bill O'Dea and Jeff Dublin, took over the Jersey City Democratic party, kicking Healy's guys out of the party leadership. Healy knows that Fulop is a Democrat , because Fulop has better access to Democratic leaders statewide and Democratic contributors statewide, that Healy does.

What frightens Healy is that Fulop's appeal is beyond partisan. He's attracted independents, and (gasp!) Republicans to support him because they see someone who is able to focus on the issues that matter to most voters. The past two days provide a great example. Fulop releases a plan to bring crime under control, something Healy has not been able to do after more than 8 years in office, and Healy releases a blast of sour "Republican" gas.

And third, we note that Healy's hired gun, David Parano, quickly blasted Healy's email list with the entire text of the story. Free JJ credibility for a bogus piece of lying campaign bulls#!t. Yo been played, Terrence!

Their website says nothing about 10PM tonight.

It is just your interpretation based on the understanding that "after snowfall" means "after the beginning of the snowfall".

I can't be certain, but I think that an interpretation "after the end of snowfall" is more reasonable.

Not that I expect a law or a city ordinance to be reasonable...

It was not networks, and it was not Obama who started using Newtown arguing for the insurance and registration. It was you. It was gratuitous use, not in the least justified by the argument with the only purpose of moral blackmail.

The word "projecting" means that I am trying to attribute you my own motivations. Seeing how I never ever tried to take away your rights, no did I ever tried to use the tragedy of Newtown for my political purposes, - I see not what exactly I may project here. Are you sure you know the word you are using?

And you are not "persecuting" me, but you most definitely are trying to take away my right. Pure and simple.

There was no "ambiguity", there were "demagoguery", "lies" and "hysterics". And they are not completely removed, since the correct description is not "against anyone" but "against those who attempt to violate my rights".
Now, in this edition, - I accept the accusation.
Hard to see how it paints me in the bad light though.

Yes, you are trying to take away my right of self-defense. I am not sure why do you deny this? You are trying to make me pay money for exercising my right. You have no respect for my rights whatsoever, - in fact, you call me names for insisting that I have those rights. You compare me to the murderers - again, based on nothing else but my desire to protect my right. You claim that "I am the one with the gun" as a proof that it is I who is dangerous.

I have never ever attempted to take away anything from you. This whole dialogue started for one reason only, - you decided that you want to take something away from me. And you dare to claim that I am doing something wrong because I am not obedient enough and not willing to submit to your demands.

By holding gun owners more accountable, it may have prevented the incident entirely. An analogy would be that you generally wouldn't give your kid the keys to your ferrari if they weren't licensed and insured for it.

1. I am not your kid. And my rights are not yours to give or not to give.
2. That said, you are arguing that people would protect their guns from their kids more, not less - if they are NOT insured. This is the opposite what you wanted to prove.

Also, by having liability insurance, compensation would be more readily accessible to the Newtown victims.

No, it would not. If your car is stolen and someone drives it in the crowd of people in the street, your insurace will not be liable.
Your attempt to "spell the connection between Newtown" and insurance failed.

But that doesn't matter. Yes, right now you did try to find some way to connect the Newtown to your argument. But you didn't do it before. You used it purely for the purposes of emotional blackmail. You tried to use the tragedy to smear me with the blame and to pose as the defender of the victims.

And that was despicable.

Assuming that the ad mentioned by others is yours I can give you the following renter's advice: if adding a bathroom is not feasible, do something about the bedroom (and kitchen) floors! The paint I could see beyond and it's a quick fix even for me as a renter if I have the landlord's blessing but old carpeting is a deal breaker. I bet updating the kitchen tiles would completely alter the ambiance too, those have been there for a while, not so?

I hope we can have a choice of a non-lawyer (/ non-union leader) as governor... If only there was an economist (read: real economist, not a pseudo in the likeness of Paul ryan or the Paul family) to choose. Having lawyers draft the policy that governs our economy is the reason why the country, nj, and so many other states are suffering from massive unemployment, saddled with debt and unfunded liabilities, and crushing what's left of the middle class. Nothing against (all) lawyers but seriously... Stick to what you understand

Hoboken Flood Insurance
Newbie
Newbie


I am considering buying a place in The Sky Club in Hoboken, however I heard that Hoboken is requiring all condos within a flood zone to buy flood insurance. The apartment is on the 7th floor, yet I still heard that flood insurance can be pricey now.

Can anyone speak about it? Or even some insight into The Sky Club building.

Re: Dan is still Dan
Home away from home
Home away from home


What Hpark says is true. But it's also true that just as Mayors hold most of the power (though not all), Mayoral candidates set the tenor of the campaign and set constraints on how candidates for council go about running for office. A council candidate can either run independent or seek to be picked up by a ticket of one of the mayoral campaigns. They can decide which to do, but it's not like Dan could have picked whichever candidate he wanted to run with.

So he has a decision. Make his run subject to the pleasure of Steve, run independent with no money, or run on another ticket with a candidate that will open him up to criticism, some of which is legitimate.

Dan has chosen the last option with both the benefits and the drawbacks. But again, just as it says something about the council candidates as to who they run with, it says something about mayoral candidates as to who they pick for the ticket. I will just say that I know some people supporting Fulop who are absolutely baffled at some of the picks. "I need this to get elected" only goes so far, particular if you are in the Ward who will be represented by one of the "political" picks.

Finally, to the extent one is concerned that Dan will be hamstrung if he is a mere councilman under Healy, there is an obvious solution. Don't vote for Healy. Nothing requires a straight ticket vote.

It's undeniable that one of the Healy campaign's strategies is to make voters think Steve Fulop is a Republican and not a Democrat, and I think it's valid to explore that. I don't think there's any real innuendo repeated, aside from, strangely enough, current Fulop ally Sean Connors.

I believe Greenvillechick should take out a $1500 insurance policy to get a couple of twenty dollar jobs. GVchick, sorry I don't have any jobs for you but I wish you luck with your endeavor. So great to see such a strong work ethic for a parent trying to provide food and shelter. Hope your kids are noticing how you and your husband think.
