Re: Confederate Flag added to Liberty State Park

Pebble has it right. The rest of you, please take your tired arguments and go home.

Incorrect. The British Flag represents a collection of nations that is progressing forward and backward at times. However, it is a representation of a collective and not a lone ideal.

The Confederate Flag represented one thing and one thing only: Secession for the sole purpose of owning other human beings.

The *ONLY* reason the Confederate Flag exists on any state flags was a direct push that came with the Jim Crow Laws. They exist as a backlash to the rights given to blacks.

Cornelius Van Vorst had slaves. He also gave the rest of the farm the the village of Van Vorst which later merged with the City of Jersey City for a park. Do we rename the park? If we do I am sure his heirs which still exists might want the land back. Some Van Vorst family members were around in the 1950s.

Wow. You have proven yourself a bigot but I didn’t think you’d go with another stupid argument.

General Lee’s statue has nothing to do with whether he was a slave owner or not. It has to do with the fact that he has one single accomplishment in his life: Taking up arms against his country because they said he couldn’t own human beings as slaves!

Seriously, you want a statue for that guy?

Van Vorst Park is named after him for his notable positives to the neighborhood. What positive did Lee give? Please, be specific when you describe out these positives.

Please, why don’t you explain the equivalence of a private grave that existed on private property (could become public after historical designation in certain areas) for families to immortalize those they loved versus a statue that was entirely built as a backlash to black people gaining rights.

No. It isn’t. It’s a strawman. NOBODY is trying to erase history. People that hate racism want symbols erected for the sole purpose of intimidation taken down. Nobody ever makes the argument that students shouldn’t learn about Gen. Lee in history class.

Yes, the PATH is doomed to be slow and packed for years to come. The so-called increases quickly pile up to become what they always were as trains wait for a bay to open at 33rd. But they keep building towers and the solution put forth by most is "wake up earlier". What a disaster.

The idea of an increase in service is a pipe-dream. Whatever goes into 33rd then has to have it's crew switch to the other end of train. Unless you can convince the crews to sprint end to end then the trains will always be what they are. Of course, you could add an actual loop at 33rd for billions of dollars and decades of work...

Or push back against unelected NAs and opportunistic pols. Development should be welcomed in this city, especially in Journal Square.


Viewing this as a past longtime Jersey City resident it is great news. The fact that someone with talent is being put into an important position is refreshing. So much cronyism over the years gave J.C. unqualified officials who were overwhelmed and only interested in the perks and the generous pensions of course. No more "my cousin Sean hooked me up" or "Uncle Mike got me the city wide contract." Progress doesn't mean growth, it means smart growth.

Why do Trump supporters continually need to compare our shitbag president to another bag of shit. Great, they're both pieces of shit.

Fwiw - the "young girl" was 22. Go call a 22 year a "young girl" and let's see how they feel about it. And let's not again spin this back to Bill. This about your comment that demeans 22 year old women and young girls.


First, the statement I quoted was comparing our President to every one before him. Bringing Slick Willie into the mix was totally apropos. Second, I could care less how you characterize my 'girl' comment. When the most powerful man on earth preys upon a 22 year old, or an 18 year old like JFK did, it's man vs girl. And every father of 22 year old who was assaulted by someone twice her age would feel that his girl was taken advantage of. You're always daddy's little girl from what my friends with daughters say.


I'm sure Chelsea is "Daddy's Little Girl" which is just a smokescreen for dudes who abuse women but are creepily protective of their daughters. Of course, there's Trump who lusts after his own daughter.

Interesting background piece by Matt Taibbi... His narrative puts together some disturbing facts about Washington DC Power and its relationship with "the Russians" and "the russians".

The whole thing really comes back to the Obama Administration... He was forced into signing a law he did not agree with (nor did many key republicans). His MO was always only enforce federal laws he agreed with and ignore the ones he didn't. So he reluctantly signs this law and then goes to work in the background supporting the lobbying efforts for repeal.

Hence the shady Russian Woman Lawyer getting that special treatment from DoS... and the photo op of her front row at a senate hearing behind the US Ambassador to Russia.

They needed Trump (on the remote chance he would win the election) because they already had HRC. If Trump had also added Term Limits on his 3 plank platform, Taxes, Illegal Immigration and draining the swamp, he would have had a landslide victory.

"On the other hand, Trump himself came out strongly in favor of the Magnitsky law earlier this year, a piece of news that was then and remains now a weird fit with the collusion narrative. Overturning the Magnitsky Act is probably at or near the top of the list of Russian foreign policy objectives vis a vis the United States. "

BIG differences. A low level operative who, as a side project, exposed Manafort's slime-balling. Trump's top people met with Russians and encouraged hacking and manufacturing of "evidence".

Hillary's campaign did meet with foriegn entities during the campaign. It will come out.


As Kenneth Vogel, one of the journalists who wrote the original Politico article, noted on Twitter on Wednesday, “overall Russian gov’t effort to sabotage Hillary/boost Trump was obviously MUCH MORE CONCERTED than anything done by anyone in the Ukrainian gov’t.”

“The Ukrainian operation was pretty small beer. It just didn’t rise to the level” of the Russian influence campaign, David Stern, a Ukraine-based journalist and the co-author with Vogel of the Politico article, told me. “I think we’re dealing in very broad strokes with something similar, but when you get into the details, they’re totally different situations.”

“In October the government bypassed the normal visa process and gave a type of extraordinary permission to enter the country called immigration parole,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Monteleoni explained to the judge during a hearing on Jan. 6, 2016.

“That's a discretionary act that the statute allows the attorney general to do in extraordinary circumstances. In this case, we did that so that Mr. Katsyv could testify. And we made the further accommodation of allowing his Russian lawyer into the country to assist,” he added.

The prosecutor said the Justice Department was willing to allow the Russian lawyer to enter the United States again as the trial in the case approached so she could help prepare and attend the proceedings.

The court record indicates the presiding judge asked the Justice Department to extend Veselnitskaya’s immigration parole another week until he decided motions in the case. There are no other records in the court file indicating what happened with that request or how Veselnitskaya appeared in the country later that spring.

Bro this isn't about bashing Republicans. Is Trump really a Republican? I don't think so. This mess is all about collusion with an unfriendly foreign power and acts of treason. Did the Russians tilt the election in Trump's favor? I doubt it and it is not the issue. Like Azul said, the Russians have their polezniye duraki, and the majority of Trump supporters are shit out of luck...


Sure it is.... when democrats are in power, thier story is f' the republicans (see Obamacare Bill) .... when republicans are in power, democrats always want to talk about crossing the aisle and sharing etc.

Do you really think if Trump were to quit today, that Pence would get a fair shake from progressives and left. Once again the left believes there is this grass roots undercurrent in the US supporting their leftist objectives.

American people are pretty fair to give a sitting president benefit of the doubt... they can see Trump being railroaded and they are blocking out the anti Trump hysteria.... he just needs to start delivering on his promises.


KEEP DREAMING.

This whole episode is just to feed the paranoid and fearful Trump fanboys. Republicans are generally scared little snowflakes who imagine the worst in everything. It's a wonder they get out of bed in the morning. Trump lost the popular vote so he has to try and sully the truth.


https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/na ... e-states-stand/451763001/

Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill said she lacks confidence in the commission, but said the state would hand over publicly available voter information.

She also slammed Kobach's record and made a public records request of her own. "In the same spirit of transparency, we will request that the Commission share any memos, meeting minutes or additional information as state officials have not been told precisely what the Commission is looking for," she said in a statement. "This lack of openness is all the more concerning, considering that the Vice Chair of the Commission, Kris Kobach, has a lengthy record of illegally disenfranchising eligible voters in Kansas."
