are new developments in JC required to allow a small percentage of units to affordable housing, since this has been proven a much more successful model than having all low income housing in one location which has obviously been proven not to work?

i hear nothing of all these new developments with an allowance for this, but where are the displaced tenants of all the projects that are being torn down?

Probably immersed in other existing housing projects.

Great advice coming from someone with a name like TwoPoops. I bet if it was a poor JC kid who did this -- you'd be singing a different tune.

BTW, if her blood level was very high - can the bar she was last at be sued?


Uh no I'm pretty sure I'd still be singing the tune of "people who are this excited to mock the dead have some personal issues they need to work out."

What does class or social status have to do with caring if someone died or not to you? What a gross and unsympathetic person you must be.

I guess in your eyes TTP you would call the dead a hero. And yeah sometimes we feel worse or better depending on the characteristics of the dead.

I agree Azul home owners won't stand for this. I hope these renters live in rent controlled apartments, projects, or multi-dwellings because once the city looses it's federal funding their rents will have to make up the difference.

Union City and JC definitely do not support Trump and Bannon's current executive travel ban and refugee stoppage. It is illegal - pure discrimination + fear mongering at its best.

I support the temporary ban, and if it was unconstitutional it would not be in effect.

It is because they are emotional children who can't properly consider the consequences of their actions.

Luckily for America, we elected the adults, who are doing exactly what they were elected to do. The children will continue having their temper tantrums, but they are of no consequence.

I hear ya JCMAN8 we will probably see more of those tantrums tomorrow evening as they are in Battery Park Nyc. Hopefully the legislature will find a resolve that will benefit our home turf.

JERSEY CITY -- Residents will gather Monday night to show their support for the city's immigrant and Muslim communities in light of an immigration ban by President Donald Trump.

The rally, scheduled for 6 pm. at the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza, is in response to an order that put a halt on the processing of Syrian refugees and barred immigration from seven countries.

I hope the webmaster corrects my post I put the wrong date down. Yes it's tomorrow.

Did the poor little racist wake up on the wrong side of the bed?

Perhaps...maybe that's why the above mentioned do these things. I thought they did it on purpose but I guess it's just part of their terroristic ways. Still I don't think they are racists though.

Judge allows travelers who landed with visas to stay in country

A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York issued an emergency stay on Saturday that temporarily blocks the U.S. government from sending people out of the country after they have landed at a U.S. airport with valid visas.

The American Civil Liberties Union estimates the stay will affect 100 to 200 people detained at U.S. airports or in transit, but government lawyers could not confirm that number.

The ruling by Judge Ann Donnelly of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York came during a hearing called after President Donald Trump issued an executive order blocking people from seven Muslim-majority from entering the United States and putting a temporary halt to refugee admissions.

Any terrorist that enters now and decides to blow up American has just help Trump win his re-election bid for 2020.


Do you even think or read what you write before you post?

I doubt Yvonne's post will cause the 2020 win for Trump. Although she has a valid and vital point.

Great article on immigration:

America's Immigration Challenge

Coming to the United States would benefit millions—but policymakers seldom ask whether their arrival would benefit the United States.

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/a ... /2015/12/refugees/419976/


The benefit to the US depends on who the immigrant is.

If the immigrant is talented and productive, then clearly their presence benefits the US. Ask Google about bringing in foreign talent, they know a little about HR. Or ask a low margin small business owner who needs low skill manual laborers (ie jobs that the typical American won't do).

You make Americans sound as if they are refusing work or are not smart enough to do the job. From manual labor, to ball players, to computer techs, to doctors, just to name a few. Perhaps we should put an official moratorium on foreign staff so only Americans need apply first. Would you choose over your family for someone on the outside ?

STOP the stupid behavior. On this particular case, that information would not do you ANY good. The man who contracted the measles is now recovering, he is not a criminal on the loose with the authorities looking for him. What you should be concerned about is whether or not you visited of the places mentioned in the article during the time frames specified.

Also, this should serve as a reminder to people about the importance of vaccinations. We are starting to see outbreaks of diseases that had long been controlled or eradicated, and as long as people such as the anti-vaxxer nuts continue to oppose inoculation using bad science to support their viewpoints, we are all at risk.

Not only is a description a valuable tool but who he his would also benefit in the quest to quell the spread of this disease. Also what I forgot to ask is what was the country abroad that he has visited ? Knowing this would help to avoid the culture of this country in our local communities till this high alert has subsided.

Riiight. All those guys riding bikes on the sidewalk were engineers and teachers back home in Mexico? Paid in cash pays taxes how? Living in illegal apartments that don't pay more in taxes, as their kids get over $20K/year in free education, school lunches, after school programs, ESL costs . . . who get sick and use the emergency room as their primary doctor, which means we pay more in our premiums to cover it?

Bingo Monroe ! And I almost got clipped by many of "them" while crossing the threshold exiting stores on Central Ave. When I tried to say something they respond by silence or a smile...and I use a bicycle as well.

I hope he discusses his vision for potholes and resurfacing the asphalt out there. It would be nice to smooth out the edges after they fill the potholes so they don't act as pseudo speed bumps even if they don't tamp them down at least it will be easier to bike over them. Also where clusters of potholes are it would be nice to have a portion of the street resurfaced.
