We went very early, and most of the staff is very, very raw. The food was quite good, but most of the items are priced beyond what the neighborhood norm is. If they massage the menu, put in some less expensive items, and get the staff whipped into shape it'll be a nice addition. I think it's going to end up as a late night lounge, mostly.

I agree with all of this.

I was there early on and the staff was just not the best. The food was passable, but it was late and I only ordered a burger.

What I found frustrating was the bread they put on the table. It was stale.

I disagree on the location being poor. The area is in need of a restaurant. You can see that with how busy Hooked JC is.

I heard the prices were updated. That should help.

I think one of the issues could be the space. The place is so large that you could have 40 people inside and the place would still look empty...

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.

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.

It should be noted that the ONLY reason that the confederate flag is emblazoned on the Mississippi state flag is due to racism (History of Mississippi state flag). They didn't start with a flag containing a flag that represents secession.

The reality is, white supremacy in all its forms needs to be wiped out. There is no place for racism.

Did we leave up the statues of Saddam Hussein in Iraq because of "history"?
Did we leave up statues of King George when declared independence because of "history"?
Do the Germans have statues of Hitler up because of "history"?

Paying homage with a public statue to people that fought for the "right" to own other human beings is unacceptable. The place for such things would be museums notating the dark history and their repugnant cause.

And guess what they're looking for?

"Asian students recently asked Harvard for data showing academic performance of enrolled students by ethnicity."

Uh-oh, I have a feeling many people here won't like the results of this data!

Another good quote:

"The lawsuit’s allegations formed the basis for a separate complaint against Harvard filed in 2015 by a coalition of 64 Asian-American groups. On Wednesday, the Justice Department announced it would begin an investigation of the complaint, which was filed with the department’s civil rights division and other government agencies."

The bottom line is this racism has gone on for long enough. President Trump might finally be able to end it, if the Asians are not.


Affirmative Action exists due to centuries of racism that prevented individuals from attending colleges based purely on skin color.

More Asians are kept out of schools because of the George W Bushes, The Donald Trumps and the Al Gores of this world than because of a few black kids.

Why aren't you bemoaning the fact that Bush got into a school despite not being qualified? Why aren't you mad that Gore got into a school despite his grades? Why aren't you mad that Trump got into a school despite his grades (and clear stupidity)?

I know people that I went to high school with that were in the bottom 50% but went to top schools due to their parents' wealth. I have ZERO problem with a minority student getting in with possibly lower grades.

Then again, you're the boards foremost racist so I'm certain none of those white privileged kids bother you in the slightest...

Re: Historic district may come to Jersey City's West Side

There are some very important things that a lot of people are overlooking here...

1. The city is NOT driving up and down the streets looking for people doing work on their homes. They aren't checking for permits.

2. This individual was turned in by his neighbors. I don't know which neighbors, but I know that several neighbors called the city to complain about the type of work this person was doing.

3. The individual explicitly stated that the entire purpose for the vinyl siding was so that he could rent the house out and move to Portugal.

4. The individual's permits did not state what the material of the new siding was which is why the permit passed.

5. The city's website EXPLICITLY states that vinyl siding is NOT permitted. It is possible that another material that isn't wood could be but vinyl is definitely a no-no.

Lastly, having listened to Fernandes speak about this, my take-away was that he's a guy that had no interest in restoration. He purchased a home and was looking for a cheap fix. He's also very dishonest in his explanation on the series of events and he's simply looking for a pay day from the city.

He could have complied with the city's rules and regulations for the area rather quickly and for a lot less money than the lawsuit along with the wear and tear on the building along with the wasted money on the vinyl siding he purchased. Instead of that, he played "victim" and got lawsuit happy.

I have zero pity for the man.

A "college education" and "college admission" are very carefully chosen phrases... there have been white people denied college admission to the college of their choice because of minority preferences, over academic performance.

This practice has been upheld by SCOTUS. If these little white racist students wanted to pick themselves up by their bootstraps, perhaps they should consider attending a HWCU?

If those white students were better students then they would have beaten out other white students in order to get into the school of their choice. They FAILED to do so. As such, they bemoan the fact that someone else gets a chance.

It's a pity that you fall into the category of protecting the poor wittle delicate snowflake that wasn't smart enough to get into the school they wanted to.

Additionally, I want to point out that Duke, Notre Dame and whole host of other schools provide college slots to white students that wouldn't have gotten into the school if it wasn't for their athletic ability. Many of those students wouldn't have been accepted to the school based on academics alone. Instead, they got there through athletics and barely passing the minimum academic requirements.

When Trump has Prime Minister Turnbull on the phone, Trump doesn't seem to understand the details of this agreement between the US and Australia; even after Prime Minister Turnbull tries to explain it several times. All he can think about is himself and how he will look to his supporters.

I guess, at the end of the day, how Trump looks to his supporters is all he cares about. Then again, it is par for the course for politicians to only care about their base. I guess Trump is just like the rest of the politicians in the swamp after all.


The transcripts are comical. Trump is shown for the complete moron that he is. Turnbull is trying to explain that he simply can't take refugees that come by boat and Trump cannot understand. The explanation of human trafficking is too complicated for his simple brain.

I also loved how he said that he knows how to build cheaply. Basically, what he does is not pay the labor bill! So, yeah, when you refuse to pay certainly contractors money, it certainly does come out cheaper! He can't simply do that when you are the United States Government.

Indeed not for nothing. Fulop stopped the reval, and if the City has made any announcements indicating the potential tax rate post-reval, they've been well hidden from me. Perhaps had they gone on the public record indicating the anticipated range of the expected rate, people might have had a better opportunity to prepare. But that didn't happen. And the City didn't conduct revals for over 25 years either.

The City bears a large measure of culpability for this mess, and should undertake reasonable steps to mitigate the inevitable negative impact as the tax changes are implemented.

As I think I've said here before – I'm not paying any more tax than I already do to the City and State. I've taken several steps to insulate myself from any future increases. Unless the City and State start showing some degree of responsibility and reasonableness, well they'll just have to do without my contributions altogether.


Fulop tried to stop it, but it landed in court. Everyone also knew that the last reval was so far in the past that it absolutely had to occur at some point in the near future. Delaying it any further continues to result in many people overpaying on their property.

The City certainly holds blame for this. After all, they didn't perform a reval for decades. You state this yourself. How can you claim to honestly be surprised by your taxes going up? The property values certainly went up. Were you supposed to benefit from equity and not up your tax rate?

I have heard people gloating about their insanely low tax bills in DTJC, so yeah... this increase will hit them hard, but they are now conveniently forgetting about the many years of riding the gravy train.

You have a huge section of the city that has been overpaying. Where is the sympathy for them?

I can certainly understand those that get hit hard. It's unfortunate and it will certainly create issues for some. But those same people benefited from paying so little.

During his first few months in office, Trump has murdered more civilians than Obama did over 8 years. LINK

Over 16 years ago, Al Gore was provided a dossier on W. This was presented to him as dirt, very similar to Trump Jr. Instead of taking the illegal action and colluding with, what could have been, a foreign enemy, Gore went to the FBI.

The one thing that can be stated as fact: Al Gore at least had class.

With the constant drip of information coming out about the meeting, there is obviously something there. The constant lying is very notable. First, there was no meeting. Then there was a meeting but nobody was there. Then there was a meeting and some others were there but the discussion was about adoption. Then there was a meeting, others were there but left early, the discussion was adoption... The whole thing stinks. Everyone knows it stinks.

Trump's presidency isn't legitimate. His team colluded with a foreign entity to interfere in the election. This isn't option, it's a fact.

Donald Trump Jr *literally* posted his emails online which admit to collusion. This isn't up for debate anymore. The evidence is right there for everyone to see.

On top of that, the illegitimate president stated yesterday that he did NOT talk about sanctions with Putin during their meeting. Today, Huckabee-Sanders stated that he did.

It's fine and dandy if you want to say that you support a conservative agenda. It is a wholly different matter to support a man that has colluded with foreign governments that wish harm on Americans in order to steal an election.

Donald Trump has routinely demonstrated himself to be an uneducated buffoon. He didn't collude because he doesn't know what the word means. However, his kids certainly were willing to commit the crime. That has now been proven as a fact.

Ultimately, due to the illegal behavior of Trump's team, nobody can really state that he won "fairly." The influence that Russia played on the election bares out that the man isn't holding the position legitimately.

Trump is actively getting investigated for committing a crime. The GOP, his party, is in charge of the House and Senate. Yet, despite controlling most of the government and them refusing to look into the meddling of Russia, Trump is still under criminal investigation. That should tell you something right there.

Trump has been in office for about 6 months and the rest of the world leaders are already working under the assumption of the USA as a sinking ship. They are discounting us, as a nation, for trade deals (aka jobs and money for American citizens).

Foreign leaders use Trump as a punchline in their jokes (see Australia). That reflects poorly on us as well. In essence NOBODY respects him.

China walked all over him after his absurd tough talk regarding North Korea.

Trump talks up Healthcare and says "nobody knew how hard healthcare was" even though every single person knows how difficult it is to put together a plan.

The man is a joke. You want to hitch your train to him and his racist practices, be my guest. When the years go by and they write the history books, they'll notate how Baby Boomers truly are the worst generation America has ever had.

The discussion in another string about fences and historic preservation requirements made me think of that guy from the recently created historic district on the West Side and the City's effort to dismiss his law suit. Turns out there's an initial ruling, although the case still has a long way to go: http://cases.justia.com/federal/distr ... 97/10/0.pdf?ts=1498739790

In short, the City was NOT successful in getting the case dismissed, so the Judge hearing the matter must think it possible that Fernandez's complaints have some merit. Certain complaints were dismissed but it seems the Judge invited Fernandez to re-file with more information. If Fernandez plans to re-file, his attorney might take a good look at the Supreme Court's recent ruling that disparate impact can apply in certain housing cases.

Fernandez might go to the State Courts, although that's difficult for procedural reasons. First, he'd apply for a Certificate of Appropriateness permit, and likely be denied by the HPC. Next, he appeals to the Zoning Board, and likely be denied again. Then, if he has followed all the required rules and met all the deadlines, he can appeal to the Superior Court. There he'd argue the denial by the City is ultra vires – provided that house did NOT have original historic wood siding torn off by the contractor. If the siding was original, it's a different story.

The HPO and HPC often use section 345-71 G. 3. of the JC Code to deny requested work, saying the proposed materials are inappropriate. They'd probably cite that sub-section in their denial of his application. However, that would be a misreading of the section, taking it out of context completely. I'm shocked they get away with it, since they are supposed to be competent to undertake their duties as HPC commissioners. And that means correctly applying the code.

Like any code (or law, or regulation...), 345-71 G. must be read fully and in context, to be properly applied. Looking at 345-71 G. 1-5. as a whole, it is clear that G. 3., about materials, only applies when “reconstruction” is proposed. Moreover, 345-71 G. 1-5., is explicit that reconstruction is only permitted under limited, strictly defined conditions. But you have to read all of 345-71 G., and the associated definitions to know. The HPO and HPC either don't know their own code, or they deliberately ignore it, and all to frequently apply that clause (G. 3.) incorrectly. Taking a sub-section of code and incorrectly applying it to a different set of circumstances than those defined in the code makes the HPC's denial an error and is beyond their authority. The HPC doesn't write the rules – they must follow the code – just like everybody else.

As he's in a historic district, Fernandez needs to use siding that is aesthetically sympathetic with the neighboring houses. However, although he can't just use any type of cheap siding he might want, he also can't be compelled to “reconstruct” replica wood siding, if the original historic wood siding was removed before the HD designation came into effect. If original historic siding was removed only after the HD designation went into effect, then he's out of luck and the situation is more complicated.

I haven't seen that house in a while, and don't know what it looks like at the present. I might go by sometime this weekend. Has anyone else here been by there recently...?.


I passed it not too long ago. Seems as though some more siding was put up on the side of the building but not the front. It's still covered in tarps and looks like crap.

Considering the amount of money and the contention coming from Fernandez about how he used "the most expensive siding", I don't see how he'd fall in the "disparate impact" would apply.

The reality is, the guy claims he wanted to move back to Portugal and rent the house out. As such, his reason behind the siding is about using cheap materials because he's not going to live there.

It appears that you won't have to wait long... the whole Russia / Trump fairytale is falling apart for the media and moonbat conspiracy whackos....

Quoting right wing news sources as if they're evidence...?

Actions speak louder than words. Trump's lawyer got a lawyer. That's not a good sign...

yes, $3,200 is a lot but you don't know how much this person makes. i know people, before obamacare, could not even get coverage with cancer or other pre-exising conditions.


It is obvious, it is not a lot or he would not have to sell his home in order to pay $3,200 monthy. I do feel for people without insurance. That is why states covered them with Medicaid. Some people are not getting insurance, they are just paying the fine because they cannot afford even the cheapest plan. My doctor who is in his early 60s closed his practice due to Obamacare. He is now working for an insurance company as a visiting doctor for homebound patients. I went to him for 20 plus years.

Your doctor is in his 60's. He didn't close practice because of Obamacare. That's a beyond stupid statement.

Under Obamacare, the federal government has been spending less money on healthcare while the number of insured people have gone up.

I thought Republicans wanted government spending to go down? Oh, right... A black guy proposed it and put it in place...


My deductible has gone from $500 to $3200 in the past 4-5 yrs.Now I basically have insurance just for major issues


You've chosen a high deductible policy. That is called making a choice. If you had mad a different choice, your deductible would be lower.

A shame we have to go all the way to the top before we can find judges that put the Constitution ahead of their personal politics.

As a racist, your statement on this is not surprising in the slightest.

FTFY


As one of the judges already said: by deciding to restore the ban, the Supreme Court already tipped its hand that Trump was right.

If he was wrong, they would have just prevented the ban from being restored while they heard arguments.

This is a great day for America. Liberal activist judges getting reversed as they should. The next step is to remove these liberal judges who have decided to place politics above doing their jobs.


It's a temporary ban. They have 3 months to prove that it is necessary to continue. If not it will be ended. Meanwhile, people will help refugees get into our country by any means necessary.


That is the point you progressives missed, it always has been a temporary ban till we see who the heck is coming into the country, legally or illegally.

The objective of the temporary ban was to review the vetting processes that the Obama Administration claimed were in place. The good news on the southern border is that the influx of illegal aliens has been cut by 70%. Which probably saved countless lives with the extreme heat being experienced in the SW.

Of course deaths of exploited illegal aliens means nothing on the alter of progressive anarchists. There is a cost to anarchy and revolution that the exploited masses must pay if they want to be free.

Had you foolish people not "resisted" it all would have been over by now.... and then to the progressive's delight, all future terror acts in the USA would be on Trump


Wow... talk about dense... Trump stated that the ban was necessary in order to implement "extreme vetting" and that it would be implemented in 90 days. The fact that we are 5 months in, what is taking so long to implement this "extreme vetting". Seems to me that it's all a ruse to continue a bigoted policy that resolves nothing.

So what you're saying is that with Dodd-Frank in effect, banks have become stronger and more financially viable. They have not increased their risk to the point of causing another crisis.

That's good news. Why do you think it is bad?
