Enough already. What else will it take for the city to take pedestrian safety seriously? And, for proper enforcement of existing laws? The streets all over JC are very, very dangerous and stressful. If I have to drive, I find myself heading out of town to run my errands just so I can try and avoid some of the craziness.


Sadly, it is usually when kids die and outrage boils over that something happens. Like what happened on Kennedy Blvd. last year.

I wouldn't be surprised. I see stuff like that happen in front of the pedestrian lanes between Newport Mall and the parking lot.

I see no statistical data to back up your claim. If we go all the way back in history, I can easily claim not only more cases but also a far more institutional practice that never gets public notice. It is a far more insidious but hardly ever mentioned because the rich and the powerful make it that way.

Affirmative action is not always invoked, race is only one of the many factors considered. On the other hand, legacy admission is by far the most arbitrary decision that can only be made by money and connections.

I think it's a no-brainer which is worse and should be dealt with first. When it actually becomes a true meritocracy that money can no longer buy, then you can take off affirmative action, not before.

Next? It's a far older practice than affirmative action! It should be first and foremost but it seems to be no big deal to you? They could even deal with it at the same time, but nooo, not even a mention. Affirmative action was a reaction to segregationist policies and white privilege practices like legacy admissions. I think it is only right to first remove the primary evil before removing the necessary evil.

Pitting one minority group against another is the best distraction the majority, especially the powerfully rich, can come up with to hide their BS. Asians should be just as pissed about the white privileged getting in through legacy admissions or any other but nooo, let's focus on the tiny scraps that other minorities get over them. I argue that there are just as many people aggrieved by affirmative action as by legacy admissions. I dare you to prove otherwise. I ask again, where is the Department of Justice on legacy admissions? Why are the Kushners and Trumps of the world getting ahead of the Jias? I think if we take away affirmative action, you will truly see how ugly legacy admissions really are.

Now back to Trump, "Grand jury issues subpoenas related to June 2016 Trump Tower meeting"

I wish affirmative action doesn't have a racial component but since race is still very much tied to the socio-economic component which I think should be the deciding factor on who gets helped by this policy, then I don't have a problem with it. I wish affirmative action can help poor white kids of comparable academics scores or better to be admitted over the other white kids who got in easily because their daddy is a Trump, but sure, let's focus on the those minorities who 'stole' their spot. White people have been screwing each other all the time based on 'legacy' admissions but I don't see the Justice Dept investigating that any time soon.

Who knew Trump is a liar, a cheat, and a con-man? Everyone in New Jersey at the very least should know. I have no sympathy for anyone who voted for him in the Northeast. You might have had the unfortunate choice of voting between two douchebags but you still voted for the biggest one so congrats. The irony is, Trump must have been right because you have to be on some serious meds to have voted for him.

It just goes to show that Trump and his retard followers would do just about anything to distract from more Russia talk, including the hypocrisy of citing 'fake news.'

And once again, more useless 'policies' that will die in the courts. Just like the recent attempt to curb legal immigration which Congress wouldn't even look at. Please, anything but Russia talk and those sanctions I didn't want to sign!

You didn't know what he did? He was the Chief of ass-kissing until 'The Mooch' came along. His job became redundant and The Smooch was a much better ass-kisser and overall scumbag. Trump sure knows how to pick 'em.

From the same article:

Moreover, the Trump Justice Department, after dismissing former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, subsequently settled a case for Veselnitskaya's client very much in their favor. That settlement earlier this spring is now highly suspicious, given this week's revelations. In my personal opinion, it's the most suspicious act to date in the whole panoply of much-denounced Trump behaviors with regard to Russia, perhaps even moreso than the firing of James Comey.

Thanks for pointing out more shady stuff from the Trumps! Maybe Trump Jr. didn't come out with nothing from that meeting. The Russian lawyer sure seems to have gotten a lot from it.

You have to be really dumb to think this was a simple hack. Podesta was targeted, do you know of any other person out there whose emails was outed by Russians directed by Putin? And as I've already stated, Podesta wasn't the only one hacked by the Russians. It's really quite amazing how Trumptards keep blaming victims in their efforts to deflect from all the lies and coverups committed by the Trumps. Don't worry, because no matter what you do the Trumps will continue to keep doing stupid stuff.

Reading comprehension? Maybe you should choose to think before you type nonsense like this: "Podesta turning over his password to the Russians"

And as it turns out, it wasn't even Podesta's fault.

All this talk of Podesta is self serving nonsense. According tot he FBI, the Republicans were also hacked by the Russians but they obviously picked a side. You have to be the dumbest person on earth if you think Podesta colluded with the Russians to destroy his candidate. I mean seriously, where the hell do you get your information? Trump Jr? You do know the hacked emails were from a Google account, right? Try using simple passwords and see what happens.

Sure, bring them all in. You can even have a double Chalupa. Bring in all the suspects, including the sitting President and Putin too. I'm sure we can get to the bottom of this once we have all the suspects.

I'm surprised you didn't say President Obama tried to kidnap a baby while you're at it with your fake crap. In the meantime, President Trump is getting hosed by his own idiot son's emails. No one really to blame here but themselves.

The Russians may have had an agenda but Trump Jr. took the meeting. End of story.

On top of this, is the lying about the whole thing. Usually it is the coverup that destroys you. This will have consequences if the FBI is somehow been lied to about this. We already know both Junior and Manafort basically lied on TV about this, with lots of fake outrage to boot. Too many lies getting caught about the Russians. What are Trumpsters trying to hide? If it's really nothing then stop lying about it!

Even if there is no evidence yet, we are certainly heading there. After lying about not having met with the Russians, we now have proof of a meeting. If they were stupid enough to take one meeting, I'm sure the Russians didn't stop there.

It takes a special kind of moron to think that publicly available data is the same as the private information Trump asked for. That's right, the VP is also a moron and the 44 states are on the record for saying Trump can fuck off on the private data.

No, it's still hypocrisy but only reinforces the selective outrage you have for the MSM. Either they are liars or they aren't, you just damage your own credibility otherwise.

My advice to you is to stop thinking you are 'winning' anything. Trump hasn't done a thing to earn anyone's praise but his own. It's rather sad to see those cheering crowds when he contradicts himself and his so called agenda. Pathetic really.

I didn't realize putting up simple math was somehow 'moving a goalpost.' I never once claimed that she never thanked Trump, just simply stating that the math doesn't add up or much common sense either for doing so. That's partisanship for you.

So now you believe the mass media because it suits your agenda? Your hypocrisy would be astounding if it wasn't so routine.

And if I didn't make it any clearer, I think people who cheer for Trump are the dumbest people on earth. They would cheer for him no matter what he says, from one rally to the next. I should feel sorry for them, but I think they will soon feel sorry for themselves so I'll try not to add to the pity party.

I know your head is so far up your ass to even realize my advice wasn't partisan. It's common sense which seems to be lost on partisan hacks like you.

So do you like Trump's draining the swamp so far? How about those promises of firing Wall Street people? The guy is so far off his rocker he thinks putting solar panels on a border wall would pay for itself (not Mexico) but you just go on clapping.

Then she's dumber than a rock.

What the hell does Trump have to do with her winning a consistently Republican overwhelming majority district? He's the only reason why the Democrats thought they had a shot! She should be telling him to fuck off.

Romney crushed Obama by 23 points. Trump eked out a 1 point win against Hillary. That should be the only perspective you need. The sooner they move away from Trump, the better the country can move away from his nonsense.

That's kind of hard to do when the little nimrod doesn't even believe in the investigations and calls it all fake. Kind of hard to trust Agent Orange when he fires the guy leading the FBI investigation with some lame excuses. In other words, Trump ain't doing a thing and you live in a fantasy world if you think he cares about the Russian meddling.

I should blame the lame duck president? He has no real power anymore during the elections, heck he couldn't even get his Supreme Court nominee in! No dude, the blame falls squarely on the Russians and those who colluded with them. I'm pretty sure even the sitting Republicans in Congress can figure that out, why can't you?

Gee, if only we can impeach Obama for his 'arrogance'. Oh wait, we can't. Too bad.

Here's the thing. Obama is gone, Romney is gone. Time to deal with the now. The problem is, you can't even face the reality that the Russians interfered and all you do is deflect. The investigations will keep rolling along, like it or not.

You are seriously desperate enough to deflect back to Romney? He was a loser for so many different reasons, Trump said so!

I'm not the one saying the Russians interfered. The FBI, NSA, CIA, Paul Ryan, etc. do. It's funny how facts become suddenly political because Agent Orange can't help implicating himself when he wasn't even being investigated.
