I was really disappointed in their "Food Court." It was greasy and unpleasant. Threw most of it out.

Yvonne, when you were talking with your husband about who your children would look like, did you also discuss whether they would be have characteristics of your husband's Caucasian heritage or your mixed race? Since you like to quote the bible:


The Old Testament Law commanded the Israelites not to engage in interracial marriage (Deuteronomy 7:3-4).

Genesis 28:1: "And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan."
Leviticus 19:19: "Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind”
Deuteronomy 22:9: "Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled."

Will this, at long last, make you think about your hatred of those not like you? As Pope Francis said about gay people in his church, "Who am I to judge?" If you think yourself more holy, more Christ-like than the Pope, I'd like to understand why.

If anyone expects the mayor to fix everything completely and absolutely correctly immediately, you're just insane. I've gotten more communication from him about progress and programs over the last 3 months than I did in Healy's 8 years as mayor. Decades of corruption and mismanagement don't get fixed overnight. Some people seem to think that there are pristine, qualified, unvarnished applicants teeming to fill every position in local government. Wake up. I'm very happy with the steps that Mayor Fulop has taken. He's got a lot of work to do. I wouldn't be in his shoes, trying to please every nitpicker (especially some idiots on this board) for anything.

In your example, the correct analogy, Yvonne, would be if gay Americans were given the right to marry, it would not diminish your right to marry. Without realizing it, you have just presented a great argument against yourself.

Re: Head of Jersey City 'conversion therapy' group denounces new ban

Arthur Goldberg. This pillar of society was convicted of selling fraudulent securities in the 80's, mostly to impoverished minorities. From Wikipedia:

"Facing the prospect of spending the rest of his life in prison, in July 1989 Goldberg pleaded guilty in a Los Angeles federal court to three counts of mail fraud. Later that month, he pleaded guilty in an East St. Louis federal court to one count of conspiracy to defraud. In October 1989, Goldberg was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison and five years' probation. He was also fined $400,000 (later reduced to $100,000 on appeal). In a separate action, the Securities and Exchange Commission banned Goldberg from the securities industry for life..."

He was also disbarred. Yet he is STILL the source of wisdom guiding homosexual sinners to the true path of spiritual enlightenment.

I am completely serious. This is a violation of our 4th amendment rights. It is no different than the police going door to door, searching houses for illegal firearms, drugs or what have you. Nor is it different than scanning emails, texts or phone calls, which Edward Snowden exposed or the racial profiling of NYC's Stop & Frisk. They should not stop anyone unless they have probable cause.

The 4th amendment reads: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” In the 1990 Supreme Court case that authorized alcohol checkpoints, the justices agreed that it infringed upon the 4th, despite allowing them under specific guidelines. The justices were patently wrong in violating our rights.

I don't defend anyone who chooses to drive drunk, but nor do I support giving police unnecessary powers. While some of our rights are being so vigorously defended (2nd amendment, quite notably), our rights to privacy and unlawful search are eroding.



With all due respect, our founding fathers couldn't know that 237 years into the future, idiots would drink an excessive amount of Mead and jump into their horseless carriages and kill people. Extreme conservatives and extreme liberals go back to the Constitution or, even worse, the Bible, to defend their arguments. You have to temper interpretations of very old documents with modern application and common sense. I got a DUI back when I was very young when I was pulled into a roadblock and blew a .1 with the breathalyzer. Cost me about 10 grand in legal fees and insurance premiums and I lost my license for six months. Never drove after drinking again and never killed anyone due to selfish stupidity either.

I also like Buon Appetito. Not great for the super thin crust lovers but it's not a thick, doughy crust either. Relatively thin to medium crust but a nice chew. Good flavored sauce, right amount of cheese and the toppings taste fresh. And the owners are really nice.

Really tired of the spanish robot Healy voicemails on my answering machine.

I find myself hoping for a runoff. Please let me be wrong.

Any idea?
blah blah blah


To your points about why you're votiing for Mr. Healy, he delayed the tax re-val until AFTER the election so that he wouldn't be blamed for the incredible rise that most of us will see.

Yes, he's accessible to all of the people, as long as you're sitting on a barstool in one of the gin mills that still serves Pabst Blue Ribbon in 6 oz. glasses. Here's a test about accessibility. Send an e-mail to Healy and one to Steve Fulop. See who answers you.

He put people in the right places? Mr. Healy placed his cronies in their low-show jobs and gave them unmarked city vehicles so that they could drive them for their own personal use while the taxpayers pony up their gas money and insurance. And he fought Steve Fulop's motion to have those cars marked so that they would be used exclusively for city purposes. What POSSIBLE reason would there be to do that other than to continue to let his buddies use the cars to hit the Jersey Shore bars?

Again, Steve Fulop has an action plan for virtually every issue facing the residents of this city. Check his website. WHAT ARE HEALY'S PLANS? Outside of spending Saturday nights at his sons' bar, there are none.

You're all under the wrong impression. cheezsnak isn't a Healy shill. Judging by the grammar and spelling, it's the Mayor himself! Thanks for stopping by Jerry. I think that your sons need someone to take care of tables on busy weekends at the tavern once you're out of a job. And you get to sing and you receive all of the free complimentary short glasses of beer that you can drink. That should put the place out of business in about 6 months.

Re: Jersey City mayor, teachers union warn of layoffs if opposition wins

I'm assuming that layoffs would occur according to the regulations stipulated in the new NJ Tenure law which allows for dismissing teachers that perform badly in the evaluation process and retaining those with seniority and those that perform well. Seems like a win-win if you vote for Fulop. Get rid of some of the teacher deadwood and get rid of the deadwood in City Hall. As usual, Mr. Healy is siding with the do-nothings who want to continue to be paid for incompetence.

Yep - the condo market is definitely heating up. Downtown, values are close to 2008 and climbing. I watch the market pretty closely and what's impressing me is the rise in the Heights - both houses and condos. Greenville is still struggling and from what I can see, Lafayette is pretty flat.

That is truly sad. Europa has been there for well over sixty years. Don't know where I'll go for my holiday kielbasa and pierogi now. I wish the owners the best. I'd suggest that Europa should take over Sava Polish Deli's space because the owner there has been trying to get out for years but I understand the terms of the lease there are crippling.

WTG JC landlords. Guess we all have more vacant storefronts to look forward to unless another cell phone joint or wire transfer to India outfit comes in. Best wishes, Europa. I'm sure gonna miss you.

Re: Steven Fulop for Mayor - MAY 14, 2013 JERSEY CITY ELECTION

I feel the Fulop momentum building but I'm still not confident. I am a Facebook friend of Steve and have sent him a couple of e-mails and have gotten responses from him and/or his team to every single question that I've asked. I sincerely hope that Healy is defeated. I totally agree that the race will be won or lost downtown.

Voters remember - Leona Beldini is in jail because Healy was a coward. Healy delayed the property re-val because it was occurring in an election year. Healy struck down the motion to have emblems put on the vehicles of all council members so that his friends wouldn't have to account for their vehicle usage. Healy did nothing of substance either before or after Hurricane Sandy for those affected. Any corporate growth in Jersey City that has happened during his tenure has occurred despite him, not because of him.

Others, feel free to add items that I have omitted.

My personal note - I have seen the Mayor out several times and every - EVERY single time that I've seen him, he was severely drunk.

Please, please - vote Fulop.

Re: Embankment to become Vietnamese?
#28
Home away from home
Home away from home


The menu layout - first page was Pho (various varieties). Second and third pages - appetizers. Remainder of the menu was various breakdowns of entrees. (Seafood, noodles, rice dishes, vegetarian). What I didn't specify in my previous post was that I said to the waiter, "I'll start with Pho number 4 and then have my seafood with vegetables." I'm sorry but if I'm sitting for 45 minutes with nothing in front of me and the rest of my party have their entire meals spread before them (for the most part), I think that at least deserves a warning from the waiter when the order is placed. If that's the custom for Viet Namese cuisine, fine. But you're serving in Jersey City, not Da Nang.

And walking around the restaurant floor while talking on your cell is not OK in any restaurant, at least to me. But maybe some of you will tell me that's also Vietnamese culture.

Just ate here with my wife and another couple. It was probably the worst dining experience that I've ever had in Jersey City. The waiter and the kitchen had no concept of courses. I ordered Pho as a starter and seafood with noodles as a main course. My dining companions also ordered appetizers and entrees. To start, two people were served appetizers while the other two got nothing. Then my wife was served her main course (a very expensive lobster) alone. Then immediately after, the other entrees were served and my wife's appetizer came. I still had no Pho. In the mean time, the servers brought over THREE plates of sprouts and basil, saying "for soup" but no soup was to be seen anywhere. I still had nothing. Called the waiter over and let him know my extreme displeasure.

He hid in the kitchen for the remainder of the meal. Finally received my entree delivered by a busboy and, of course, 30 seconds later my Pho came which I sent back. When the waiter finally came out of the kitchen, he circled the dining room which only had four active tables, while talking on his CELL PHONE, ignoring my table because he didn't want to talk to me and apologize. The whole meal was a disaster. Never got to taste the Pho, and despite my complaints, nothing was removed from my check. Too bad. Could have been a nice addition to our dining rotation.
