I don't see any "jabs at Jersey City" in this reporting.

It seems pretty accurate.

Why is JC "dissed"?

I have a tidbit for you guys.

I just looked up on the Internet a guy I knew from grad school.

Turns out he owns a small pharmaceutical company now. I cannot believe what detail you can find on the Internet - his company is grossing about $2 mil/year, looks pretty successful.

You can also find his political contributions on the Net - $3K for Obama.

So here we have a successful small business owner whom I personally knew, who, knowing full well that his personal taxes will likely go up under Obama, still votes for the man.

I am writing this because I want to retract the argument I made some time ago on jclist that Obama's tax policies will hurt small business. That guy I described above is incredibly smart and an incredibly hard worker, who built his business from nothing. I greatly admire him for that.

I really hope, for the sake of America, that he and Obama are successful.

Re: What's worse for JC, Luxury Condos or Hipsters?

I say neither is bad for JC.

The luxury condos will be pretty cheap pretty soon, providing an opportunity for those with some cash to buy a nice home.

And hipsters - well, I personally don't dig'em but they don't bother me.

Pretty harmless, really. I'll take a hipster over a gangster any day.

Last weekend, I was just at Woodbury Commons outlet mall and it was packed - I'm talking 30 minute traffic jams just to get in and out of the parking lot!!

The discount and bulk retailers like outlets, Walmart and BJs will likely do the best in the coming months, but the higher end retailers like Nordstrom and Saks will suffer. Like you said, I'm starting to loosen up my spending these days now, but I'm not buying any luxury items for certain.


I guarantee you that at least 75% of those people were European. They are keeping retail afloat these days -- and Woodbury Commons is now a booming tourist destination!


...if so, then the fact that the dollar has been strengthening against the euro lately is not welcome news.

I don't know what to do anymore.

Can somebody tell me why we are discussing a bracelet in the middle of a major crash and burn of US of A?

Here's my take on things:

Normally, a spiraling economic crisis like we're experiencing now means a guaranteed Democrat landslide win.

And that's the way it should be.

But in this election, that win seems far from guaranteed due to (in my opinion) two factors: Obama's race and his history of being somewhat on the left, if you get my drift.

His race will always work against him with a (hopefully) small percentage of the voters.

His being a lefty should in the end work for him, now that the fiasco of unregulated financial markets is clear to all.

So Obama should win.

One word of caution (and I think Obama understands that) -the government should regulate the markets, but not to the extent that it controls them.

Let's not swing the pendulum from totally unregulated markets (which obviously have failed) to the socialist, totally regulated model (which will obviously fail, too).

Now is the time for wisdom, and I hope Obama has it.

I've got to give it to Taz - he's been right on the money so far, but disappeared lately. Must be counting the money he made by shorting the Dow.

Some food for thought - if we're really in for another depression, then there is still time to protect our assets.

What instrument will survive this crisis the best (gold, real estate, Euro, swiss franc - what?)?

Cause sure as heck it won't be the dollar if we have to print trillions worth of greenbacks in this crisis.

In the current situation, it is an impossible task to argue for the Republican Party in this election.

Obama will have a tough job, but hopefully he can do it.

We don't need just a change, we need total renewal.

A radical makeover - not into socialism, but away from the unregulated financial (and social) system that has obviously failed.

If this is not a failure, I don't know what is.

Folks - this is the biggest election in the US history, and we'll risk failure of this country, the best country in the world, if we don't elect Obama.

Because the downside of his being a socialist is far smaller than the downside of the disastrous status quo.

Over and out.

Re-read my post - I wrote "successful small businesses" - as in small businesses that generate in excess of $250K income for the owners, who can re-invest that money right back into the business. If Obama taxes that money there will be less re-investment and less growth.

Don't worry about picking on me, or my presence on this board - I am close to retirement and my inventions are still creating jobs for people.

Oh one who is way overusing exclamation marks:

Guess what - that bracket happens to include succesful small businesses, an economic engine of this country, folks that often re-invest their profits to grow the business.

Under Obama, that money will go to the G o v e r n m e n t.

I don't know what you mean by a squillionaire, but I do sense some contempt in that expression towards those who happen to be doing okay.

Oh, so scary. In any event, this is how it breaks down and I personally prefer a tax cut for 81% of all households.

EXCERPT ON REALITY CHECK NY TIMES

This drastically simplifies what the candidates' tax plans would do. Mr. McCain would preserve all of the Bush tax cuts, while Mr. Obama would let them expire for those making more than $250,000 a year. Mr. McCain would also double the child tax exemption to $7,000 and reduce business taxes. Mr. Obama would reduce income taxes and provide credits for people earning less than $250,000 a year. The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center found that Mr. Obama's plan would amount to a tax cut for 81 percent of all households, or 95.5 percent of those with children. The center calculated that by 2012 the Obama plan would let middle-income taxpayers keep about 5 percent more income on average, or nearly $2,200 a year, while Mr. McCain would give them an average 3 percent break, or about $1,400. The richest 1 percent would pay an average $19,000 more in taxes each year under Mr. Obama's plan but see a tax cut of more than $125,000 under Mr. McCain.


Nice dodge.

You are also for curbing of what you view as "excessive" wealth.

As such you are indeed a commie pinko and that's why you vote for Kucinich and Obama.

I like how only after this nutter commits a serious crime (when he has a history of mental issues) does the authority decide to get a psychiatric evaluation, which will mean not guilty due to mental health.

I hope the family sues the ass off those authority bodies that were aware of this nutter's problem for negligence and incompetence and go after the City and State.
