Re: its official: entire heights must buy resident parking permit

Home away from home


Weird, I could have sworn I commented here.

I think this is great and would love to see it expanded to other parts of the city. The pockmark parking zones are absurd right now, where if you go two blocks from your house suddenly you're in another zone. And having permit parking apply only during work hours makes no sense to me as most people would need parking during the evening anyway.

I like that people working in the area can get a 6 month permit for only $50 as well, which is better than taking chances and getting tickets right now.

also thought this quote was hilarious
Quote:
Pat O'Melia, of Congress Street, called the measure an "attack on the working people of the Heights." O'Melia said it would hurt workers of businesses on Central and Palisade avenues.

"You might as well put red caps on that say 'make America great again,'" O'Melia told council members, "because you're all working for Trump."

wtf does that even mean? I dislike Trump a lot but a lot of Jersey City people love to freak out about any little change.

The retaining walls were not part of the original $1 billion Skyway rehabilitation project, said Stephen Schapiro, an NJDOT spokesman.

"If they are not reconstructed now, they would need replacing in a few years, resulting in future closures, detours, and inconvenience to motorists," Schapiro said. "This work is expected to be completed next spring, at which time the Skyway will reopen to two-way traffic."


Well at least this is additional work and not the original project being delayed even more.

So, you are wrong. Stop throwing science out the window for political purposes. In the 1970s, people said they were a product of rape between outer space aliens and their mothers. Today, it is transgender. But no matter what generation, it is still mental illness.

Yvonne, are you in favor of banning Catholic priests from being around children? Because there's a much higher rate of Catholic priests molesting and raping children than there are transgender people committing the same acts.

If you're not, then please just admit that you're full of crap. Catholic priests are a much greater danger to society than any transgender person but I have a feeling you have no issue with them using bathrooms that children might be in.

It's like you have no idea how stocks work. Walmart is barely up over a 5 year period, Target is barely down, and plenty of other retailers are severely down or severely up. They're both middling about, there's no holy crusade for Target and against Walmart. I think you wildly overestimate the number of people that care about this passionately enough to boycott a business over who gets to use the bathrooms. It's all about sales, and there are a million factors that go into that. Resized Image

How to get a post office lockbox for an apartment?

I've found the key boxes online but the locks have to be bought directly from USPS it seems. Unfortunately, their website is useless for this and their phone line is also not helpful. Does anyone know how to get one of these things set up?

One thing you missed RCResident, I never said to use public funds or public lands. I said the city could have done a fundraiser for them.

I am sorry it is not available for the next generation. Our youth needs direction and St. Anthony HS gave them that.

Why don't YOU hold a fundraiser for it? Why should the city be fundraising for a private school? If you are so heartbroken about this, why aren't YOU doing something about it? Why isn't the Catholic Church doing a fundraiser? Why aren't St Anthony alumni doing a fundraiser? Why does the city have to do it?

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. I bet if the city were doing a fundraiser for any private institution other than a Catholic-associated one you'd be losing your mind about Fulop wasting our time.

oh my god what are you even talking about? It's a private school, if they can't get students and funding it's their own problem. Do you blame Fulop for you Taco Bell farts as well? Get a grip, man.

In both of the cases you mention, the perpetrator was a man, dressed like a man. In neither case did the act have anything to do with transgendered people, or with bathrooms, and in both cases the offending person would be charged with a crime.

The illegal acts that happened here were already illegal. Please explain to me how a bill banning trans people from bathrooms would have solved any of these problems?

And don't give me this completely unproveable nonsense about "well the bill is letting people think they can do whatever!" Because neither article quotes the guy using transgender rights as a rationale. And that would also require us to pretend that there have never been peeping toms ever before. You're stretching so much you should join a gymnastic team.

I used to avoid the Newport theater because it was dumpy, but now it's really nice. It's my preferred theater thanks to the big seats and the reserved seating.

Yes, among other, much worse things. The Orthodox Jews also took over the local school boards and completely defunded them, and diverted funding to bus their children to private Jewish schools. I can't imagine them taking over JC in the same way, but I wouldn't give them an inch after seeing what they've done to other towns.

That's funny. That's the same exact defense that Hillary Clinton used when she was being grilled about her email server. "I can't recall." And the same result was that the FBI said they don't believe she was intentionally misleading them.

I remember how Republicans were so accepting of that. Interesting to see how you agree that Clinton shouldn't be charged.

Oh my god yes, the crossing guard at Monmouth and 7th does this too. I don't know why all these crossing guards think they need to direct traffic, they just cause a lot more traffic than if they let the stop signs take care of it. I guess just walking in the intersection when kids are crossing is too boring for them. He seems like a nice guy and isn't all that bad, but I'd prefer he just let traffic handle itself naturally.

$220 million is peanuts compared to how much we give to Israel every year, or how much we spent on the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, or for Bush's tax cuts. But I never hear Republicans complain about it. Weird.

As for the Detroit thing, it doesn't seem clear what happened there. It's not obvious it was fraud, and could have easily been poll station workers not properly storing ballot papers.


Here's a more recent article on it that pretty clearly explains that it was most likely user error. In any case, this is an issue of the machine tally not matching the paper tally, which isn't a problem that voter ID would solve.

And I don't see how a net of 310 votes miscount means that somehow Trump won the popular vote.

The misinformation you buy into is insane. What Trump did is the same thing that Bush1/2 did, which is to stop funding any organization that even talks about abortions. Federal money does not fund abortion anything, and hasn't for a long time. This is the same crap that Republicans pull with Planned Parenthood. Even though PP does not spend any federal money on abortions, the mere fact that they do abortions in some locations means Republicans want to defund their cancer screenings and parental counseling.

What Trump has done is not to defund foreign abortion counseling. He has defunded any organization that provides any services at all if they so much as even mention abortion, even if they are primarily focused on preventative care.

And strangely enough, a 2011 study at Stanford found that whenever this funding is cut, unplanned pregnancies and abortions in countries where those NGO's were providing services RISE.

Tell yourself whatever imaginary facts you need to make yourself feel better. I don't know why it's so hard for Trump supporters to just accept that the Northeast corridor is overwhelmingly liberal and that Trump has generally low approval ratings. It is what it is.


And while we all argue with reality-defying nimwits here, Trump is still lying about millions of fraudulent votes costing him the popular vote. I know it's because his fragile ego can't handle that he lost, but I'm worried that Republicans will use this fantasy to push even more voter suppression laws.

We also got a laughable ACA "replacement" plan which is just "states can keep it if they want or not whatever lol guys."

And of course, as his very first executive action he cancelled an FHA loan rate reduction which would have saved a bunch of money for a bunch of people, including me personally.

woo boy that's as authoritarian and fascist as it gets. I'm not surprised though, Republicans called any critics of GWB traitors as well. Those tactics stretch back to Joe McCarthy and beyond.

Maybe a good time to drop a quote by Republican hero Teddy Roosevelt:
Quote:
The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.


Of course, people were calling him a traitor for criticizing the President during WWI.


Blind obedience to the state and silencing of critics is something used in places like Iran, North Korea, and Russia. It's disturbing to see conservative "freedom-loving" Americans embrace it.

The Trump photos published by CNN and everyone else were taken DURING the speech.

How the hell could it be 6 hours before the inauguration? Sunrise in Washington DC is 7:21AM. The inauguration ceremony started at 11:30AM. You're saying this picture was taken at 5:30AM while it was still dark out? WHAT??



It's such a ridiculous thing for conservatives like you to be arguing against. It's plain as day and you can see it with your own eyes. And so what? The Northeast has a lot more liberals. Obama was a unique candidate and generated tons of hype. Trump has really low approval ratings. Of course he's going to have a smaller inauguration crowd.

It's really disturbing to see so many people ignore facts and so willingly spout complete lies, and slandering everything they don't like as "fake news" despite it being either objectively true or just biased.

This headlong charge into willful ignorance that Monroe and millions of other Trump supporters are doing is frightening. When a large segment of our population looks at objectively true facts and decides to say they're fake. When so many people would rather take the word of a pathological liar than their own two eyes, or scientific researchers, or journalists with sources and documentation. Then what the fuck hope do we have?


I'm not so much worried about Trump as I am about people like Monroe that are gleefully embracing the 2+2=5 philosophy of 1984. It's not just ignorance, but complete misinformation. I hope people wake up and don't fall for the classic gaslighting tactics that Trump's team is using, because if they do our country is going to continue sliding to a Russian political system where there is no objective truth.
