Re: Jersey City Democratic operative still owes $81K court fine from 1992

Yet, here he is in 2015, earning 75K as a "case manager" for the prison re-entry program. This on the heels of instrumental roles played in the campaigns of his daughter-in-law, councilwoman Coleman and Mayor Fulop. He's a player still. As the article says:

"...he remains a master political operative in Jersey City's heavily African-American Ward F."

Are you saying that because Earl Morgan wrote an opinion piece comparing McKnight to a rat, that somehow settles it in favor of the idea that the guy has no sway? Because, that's the inference I get.

Not at all surprised the man still carries clout given the fact that so many benefited from the 80s scheme he masterminded. A legend, his legacy and the Black cognoscenti. Who doesn't like a Michael Corleone and who dares to defy him?

But, I digress.

My issue is with the accrued interest on all that money owed. How much is 81.5K -- compounded annually over twenty years at 6% -- worth in today's dollars? Around a quarter million I'll bet! This amount ought to be his "one-shot-deal."

I am not so sure he is responsible. I went through this 18 months ago, when we had that cold spate after the snowstorms (winter '14.) I was complaining about same. But, someone pointed out that technically, he isn't responsible for reasons not entirely clear. But, I do remember it was the city that reacted. Councilwoman Osbourne sent an alert to the guys at the incinerator or sanitation or whatever, and those guys came the next day (sort of.)

Re: McGreevey is asked to leave a community meeting

Um, excuse me JC and User, how does Prato enter the conversation here? This is not an "us" versus "them" situation.

There does exist a body of credible social science research which fully supports the idea that socioeconomic status and low-socioeconomic neighborhoods have a significant correlation to mental health and personal progress. So, take a person living in a low-socioeconomic neighborhood who earns a decent income relative to the neighborhood, and that person isn’t as stressed as he or she would be if placed in a high-socioeconomic neighborhood where same income is less and in many cases FAR less relative to the neighborhood.

Frankly, I would have no problem if this program were implemented downtown, so long as the rationale for doing so was in the best interests of the newly released prisoners.

But, it has to go somewhere, why not in the Greenville neighborhood? What do all the community activists seen on the video, all of whom are African-American, propose we do regarding the needed program’s implementation given that the majority of the ex-prisoners are African-American? This whole business of protest and demonstration seems kind of turncoat to me.

Where, then, is the facility supposed to be built? Is there an alternative site, perhaps one that is closer to the Path train system?

What is all the fuss? It's not as though that stretch of Greenville is unfamiliar with crime and or criminals. And, I am not being facetious here. Is the "what about the children" argument merely a front for "what about the real estate value?" The bottom line is that a re-entry program is needed.

Perhaps it should be placed downtown, so that the guys trying to rebuild broken lives can more easily assimilate, lol. The stress of feeling poor is way more harmful than actually existing in poverty.

A Jersey City man who was shot in the lower back this morning near McGinley Square has died of his injuries, Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Gene Rubino has confirmed.

The name of the victim has not been released yet pending notification of next of kin, he said.

The man, about 25 years old, was brought to Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health this morning in critical condition, according to hospital spokesman Mark Rabson.

Re: Monaghan's tavern

Home away from home


At the north end of Jersey City, Monaghan's Bar at 225 Hutton St. is set to close its doors and taps after 40 years, leaving local patrons without a second home.


"All of my friends come here," said Tim Purcell, 65, a retired Jersey City cop. "We've been coming here for years. We planned golf outings to Myrtle Beach and celebrated St. Patrick's Day."

The largely blue collar neighborhood bar frequented by generations of police officers and firefighters first opened in 1974 on the corner of Hutton Street and Sanford Place by Terry Monaghan, who passed away in 2008. His son Terry Monaghan Jr. continued to run the bar.

Re: Bicycle advocacy groups call for crackdown on double parking in Jersey City, beyond
#38
Home away from home
Home away from home


JERSEY CITY ? Twenty-two miles of bike lanes have been installed since Mayor Steve Fulop took office, but some bicycle advocates say motorists often ignore these lanes creating what they call unsafe and deadly conditions for cyclists and pedestrians.

Cars driving – and even parking – in bike lanes are a serious problem for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike, bike advocates say.

"All you have to do is go on Grove Street," said Christopher Englese, president and co-founder of Bike JC, an advocacy group for cyclists in Jersey City. "Because of the double parked cars in the bike lanes, the cyclist has to steer out into the actual road."

There are no specific laws regarding a motorist double parking in a bike lane in either Jersey City or New Jersey. State law only has rules against double parking, and for Englese, he rarely sees these double parking laws being enforced locally.

I’m down.

But we’ll need at least a couple thousand people to come on board if the civil disobedience rally is to be meaningful. And each person will have to take a day off from work. I’d say we gather around 1 o’clock. That’ll give the troops an hour to get good and loaded at the local bars, preferably with Tequila and beer chasers. Then we can hit them full force! We can take over the Holland Tunnel entranceway and be totally disruptive. The press will love it! Especially, if a few of us are willing to take a couple of shots and throw a few punches at the police as the scene devolves into an “all out” riot! I’m just hoping that we don’t set off another Reginald Denny incident. They can arrest us and charge us with whatever, but at least our voice will be heard!

The time for pondering questions is long gone. We need to liberate the oppressors from their inhumanity.

Last Friday was closed in the morning but reopened for the evening rush hour.

Rather than following the detour, I'd get to Communipaw and head west until you hit the 1-9 entrance ramp which will take your right to EWR. Although, that's no chip shot either given the seemingly daily logjam at the 440 crossover.

Oh...so justified is the ineptitude? On account of Sept. 11, 2001? Pardon me, but who are you?

Regardless, the mysterious circumstances surrounding the collapse of building number 7 (and I swear if I see the word "conspiracy" bandied about hereafter, I'm tearing it up) and the obvious fact that the 9/11 massacre was indeed planned and executed as a "false flag" precursor to a land grab (et al) in the name of oil, gives pause to anyone who might come on this board and attempt to justify or rationalize the obvious. It, the Port Authority, is a corrupt behemoth and it needs to go away, forever.

I think there is another thread on this topic but as far as I'm concerned, there should be twenty plus such threads at the top of the board everyday!

Recently, I sat for 40 plus minutes waiting on train at 33rd Street. Got to the packed, standing-room-only 33rd Street station at midnight where the temperature was 100 hundred degrees, didn't get to Grove until 1. It is a money-grabbing Leviathan that just sucks away at the public's money, all day and night, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Despite all that money, it still can't figure out how to shuttle people back and fourth across the river more expeditiously. Just a total scam.

But a yeah, post #14, absolutely yeah, all day and everyday! I'll dominate, as always I have. Not only is Capitalism (and any socioeconomic system rooted in MONEY, like communism or socialism) the root cause of litter in the hood, it is the root cause of ALL societal malaise. The fact that this very truth is somehow lost in your thinking, that you are totally oblivious to the deleterious impacts of Capitalism -- or any "ism" based upon a money/market system -- says a whole lot about YOU. That you worship at the alter of said paradigm. And anyone who knows anything has certainly read Hemingway's short story "A Clean Well Lighted Place," in which Hemingway himself starts going off about nada y nada y nada y nada. That's all Capitalism is about....Nada y nada y nada y nada.

Chuck this slavery system, the one in which the slaves now have to pay for their housing and their food. As opposed to the prior, in which the dominator actually had to PAY for food and shelter of their "property." Nowadays, the slaves must pay for their food and their shelter.

So, what we are talking about is a concept of "minimal impact." I first learned of this when on expedition in the Wind River Mountain Range of Wyoming. The idea is utmost respect for the environment (totally anathema to Capitalist ethos) in which you carry out whatever you take in AND that you leave no trace. But in a world dominated by cyclical consumption, and the folly of commercial advertising, it's hard to inculcate the correct "way of being." In other words, F it all, what's in it for me and so what about the environment.

Neoliberalism people. Get to know the term, be in the KNOW. Cuz when the revolution comes, and for sure it is a coming, all the corporate types will be shaking in their boots, lol. Can't wait, lol.
