Re: PATH Train Incident

Home away from home


Once again, the Jersey Journal comes up with some grand reporting. No investigation, nothing. Great journalism. If she was sexually assaulted (from the description the paper reports), then I am assaulted every time I ride the path or subway. The headline says "groped" but the article says he boarded the crowded train and pushed himself on her. Groping and pushed up against someone on a crowded train are 2 different things. I wish the JJ had gone out of business a few years ago.

Yeah... I agree... it could also mean legalizing prostitution and crystal meth. And "restructuring the department" could also mean releasing pedophiles from prisons. I don't like this plan either.

If you think your little "weapons" are keeping the government in check, then you are more delusional than these mentally unstable individuals that are doing these massacres.

Bad advice? Wouldn't you just instinctively know that's a crappy thing to do? No one is accusing her of trying to get rich in the wake of a disaster, but it's the equivalent of having a stoop sale after a blizzard and "loaning out" shovels for $5 an hour. It boggles the mind as to the thought process of a person doing it. I opened up my home and let friends of friends come over, charge electronics, work, shower, etc. The thought of asking for a "donation" was never ever even considered. I guess when you charge $5 for a croissant, it's hard to shake a "greedy" reputation. She may not have been the most business savvy person, and done any of this intentionally... but I know a lot of people that know her personally quite a while ago, told her her prices were a bit too high, open up earlier to serve coffee, be more prompt, etc. If you can't listen to your locals, you won't succeed. She had every chance to succeed in my eyes, but ignored everything. Criticism isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The $1 went towards the generator my ass. In a natural disaster, you do what you can to help your fellow man. Did you see anyone else requiring a fee to charge your electronic devices? If she CHOSE to have a generator in her store, then great. That was a business expense on her part. And to ask the general public to pay for that during a time of crisis is ludicrous. How much did it cost to run that generator? $50? Sorry, she lost my business and respect after doing that.

Re: Dan Levin in talks to run with Healy

What it really boils down to is this: This guy has run a number of times unsuccessfully. The people did not vote for him. Not because he was an independent, the people simply did not vote for him. But he refuses to accept this. The philosophy that he needs to hold office via the ticket he was so outspoken about is ludicrous. Where does one draw the line. Should someone have joined the nazis to change their ways from within. What a load of crap. This guy just can't take the hits to his ego. He could've continued to run for as long as he wanted to, and if his message stayed the same, I would've voted for him. But running on the SAME TICKET, sitting next to the EXACT GUY you so opposed is insane. Good luck trying to dupe everyone Dan.

I understand the rage at his decision. If I didn't know him personally, I would feel the same way. But I do know him. Dan ran two campaigns that way. He has been backed into the corner of running another losing campaign or putting his name on a ticket that must be killing him, but might actually put him into office, where he can finally make a difference.

What would you do?


What I personally am going to do is not vote for someone (however wonderful they may be) that is using the worst of the worst to hold a public office. Your rationale for voting for him is the problem with politics in this country at its core. People in bed with this person, and that person in bed with another person. All the while we sheep are supposed to believe the person you think is great is only there to "fix things." Please. Give me a break. I think maybe you spent a little TOO MUCH time in local politics. It sounds like you're part of the machine/problem. All I've seen you do is ask for people's names. Talk about an ego. Who are you to judge what a person is capable or incapable of grasping in politics? You sound like you've been part of this "machine" you want to get rid of. And I for one, don't buy it for a second. Good luck convincing others that the Healy ticket is the way to go.

The real rationale for restaurants being closed on Mondays is that "theoretically" they get fresh deliveries daily to supply the next day. Most suppliers are closed on Sundays, so therefore, there would be nothing fresh for Mondays service. Ever heard the saying, "Don't eat sushi on Mondays"? That's where that comes from. You'd be eating Saturdays delivery... Do you care? who knows...

If this is a way for him to connect the dots and get into City Hall than I say its better this way than no way at all. I believe that Dan is the right sort of person for this time in this city and I will be glad to know hes at work in City Hall regardless of how he gets there.

Have you also noticed the majority of vegetarians/vegans look like the most unhealthy people? Thin, gaunt, and bluish skin tone. See those teeth on the sides of your mouth? They are incisors, made for grinding meat. Ever see a vegan lion, tiger, great white shark?

It always amazes me that the people that are grossed out by meat and all (vegans), always try to form their soy and veggies into things that closely resemble meat products. Why would you want to eat something that attempts to look like a hot dog or hamburger?

Dixon Mills explicitly states that the security guards, gates etc there are to protect THEIR property and not you or your property. It gives the illusion of security, but unless something is specifically happening to their property, they could care less. A woman got her purse snatched right in front of the security guard office and they did nothing. A passerby had to call the police for her. One of the many reasons I chose to not ever rent or buy there.

I love this board.

Sorry, you can't have it both ways. Everyone else has to abide by the food safety rules but Ramon Ruiz doesn't? Give me a break. While I agree the "rules" are ridiculous, either everyone abides by them, or no one does.

The place really hasn't changed much since the Sand Bar layout. In fact it hasn't changed at all, except for a paint job, new bar and a frozen drink trailer. Minimal renovations. The music wasn't fist pumping when I was there at least. The food I had was decent and reasonably priced. Typical bar food with more seafood options. Much better selection of beer from the Sand Bar (craft beer or not). The one thing it doesn't have is "Key West attitude." When I picture Key West, I envision calm beaches, drinks on the beach and overall a pretty relaxing atmosphere. I don't see huge, intimidating bouncers every 10 feet eyeballing everyone as if they work for the TSA. There were probably 25 security guards there. Maybe if the crowds stay tame and they truly don't allow it to become the Sand Bar II, they might lighten up on the security and the overall mood might be a bit more relaxed.

One more inconvenience. Before when your car got stolen, you could at least walk to the precinct, station, hovel, or whatever you feel like calling it. Now when your car gets stolen, you'll have to chug it to Journal Square. It's probably a strategic move in hopes less people downtown will report crime because of the hassle it will take to get to the place where you need to file the report.

A pedestrian knocked down by a biker and that person hits his/her head on concrete is just as dead if that person was hit by a car. I have seen many bikers who do not stop at the red or drive against the flow of traffic. Bikers are ready to sue if they are injured, then they such also be heald accountable if they caused an accident. Apparently, JC bikers on this blog have a "princess mentality." They want the benefit but they do no want to be held accountable.


And pedestrians should wear helmets and be required to have insurance too. You are fighting a losing battle. Yes, bikes have to follow the rules of the road, just as pedestrians and autos do. But police are not writing J-walking tickets, tickets to bicyclists riding the wrong way down one way streets, riding on the sidewalk. Here on planet Earth, things are not perfect, and probably never will be.

So the white guys from Hoboken and DTJC ride the light rail to Greenville, get off, buy weed, then ride the light rail back? Weed isn't exactly some exotic drug these days. I'm pretty sure anyone that wants it knows someone that can get it. I seriously doubt people are making this trek to buy a dime bag or two of weed. Unless these "white guys" are 15 years old.
