There are a few real-life impacts from this I can immediately think of:

1. Prevents new puppy mill stores from opening up in JC. As development expands greatly throughout the city, it is not inconceivable that a puppy mill store would have opened. Now they won't.

2. As more municipalities adopt laws like this, soon the state will have a majority of municipalities with the same law, at which point the statewide effort starts to gain momentum. There are about 100 towns now with similar ordinances, and if not for Gov Christie a comparable state law would have been signed already. This then prevents puppy mill sales statewide which is a huge achievement.

3. Cosmetically/topically, it's good press. Maybe someone didn't know what a puppy mill is, but then they see Jersey City has banned their sales, and in turn they end up rescuing a dog.



I don't discount the possibility you are right, particularly about #3 (increasing awareness, and perhaps deriving some other benefits as a result of that) but with regards to #2, my impression has always been that most of the puppy mills from which animals originate were usually found in PA (that was until some state laws curtailed those operations) and from OH and some Southern states (KY, TN).

In any case, I am now genuinely curious as to whether we even have pet stores in town that sell dogs, or cats.


I remember there being a place not Downtown that did years ago but thinking they went out of business. Thankfully if this passes we know no new ones will open though.

You are right about where the really bad mills are. Also Missouri is notorious for puppy mills. One issue is that the mills now use "brokers" who will be local to the store and act as middle person.

This does obviously still leave those determined to purchase a certain brand of dog the option of a backyard breeder, but at least it narrows their options a bit.

Re: Fulop to solicit proposals from for-profit companies to replace FOL in running the Loew’s theater

your intentions are clearly in the right place but this is unfortunately very separated from reality and how the music industry works. there is a reason the FOL have one, maybe two concerts a year at the Loew's, and if they retain control it will never become what it once was. as I mentioned previously, there is a reason nearly every single legitimate venue is run by a company who has the experience doing so. AEG Live and comparable companies have a track record of renovating historic theaters and turning them into premier event spaces. they have the capital to do the renovation and the connections to book the ongoing talent needed to keep it running. if the FOL were remotely capable of doing so they would have already.

The physical restoration and rehabilitation has been at a practical standstill since years ago. That is why I support the idea of bringing in a professional organization to run the place and oversee its renovation. I totally get that FOL saved the place from the wrecking ball, but they are definitely not up to the task of seeing through the effort of restoring the place to its former grandeur.


In addition, the FOL simply do not have the connections or resources to run a full time venue. There is a reason that every legitimate music venue is managed by one of the major national companies that do so. AEG Live actually has a history of renovating historic venues and operating them thereafter with much success. Nothing but respect for the FOL for what they did in the past but their pride is just hurting their own cause at this point.

Your misogyny is palpable. If you want to criticize the councilwoman on her record, do so. But your continued personal attacks are offensive - and more of a reflection on you (and the candidates you support) than her.


she failed as many times over. she is so stupid she is unable to argue her point. just review council meetings on youtube. she is handed over task and told fetch. case in point is her ramming no parking in front of marriott at grove path. clearly shows who her masters are.


Clearly, you're a shill for one of Candice's political opponents. It's laughably transparent.

Hmm, I wonder why your post count is so low? :)


I was going to say the same thing. Instead of repeating sexist remarks about Candice and calling her stupid (which is laughable to anyone who has actually worked with her), why not just endorse your candidate and point out the differences they will have to her policy positions? The Healy/Matsikoudis camp is already running a negative campaign so I suspect this may come from their team?

One random thought here- during WWII Jews across Europe were routinely denied Visas to enter the US (including Anne Frank's father) as there was fear they were secretly Nazis. Do you think the Yvonnes of today would have denied the Jewish refugees safe passage during WWII? Food for thought.

The point being - they would like to come here. This is about our immigration/refugee policy. The USA is not like Europe but I am sure we will be similar to Europe with our open borders. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYmmt7tJres

The human child is more important than pit bulls. These dogs are killers.


Well you are making claims as to the temperament of a whole group of dogs, so I am curious what your qualifications are? I have spoken to endless dog behavioralists and trainers who unanimously disagree with your sentiment, so am curious why your opinion differs from trained professionals. Would love to hear about your qualifications in this area.

Anyways, when you say "these dogs" are killers, what dogs? Exclusively American Pit Bull Terriers? What about American Staffordshire Terriers? What about mixed dogs?

You also said, "These vicious pit bulls look at children as prey, their actions are independent of their owners." Again- are you just referring to American Pit Bull Terriers? Are they all vicious? What about Dobermans, Rottweilers, Dogo Argentinos, American Staffordshire Terriers, etc... are they ok? And is this "vicious" behavior of seeing children as "prey," why do so many dogs you would label a "pit bull" not display this type of behavior?

Would appreciate direct answers to my questions instead of a pivot, thank you.

Yvonne - I'm asserting you are an idiot. You are pro-car and anti-dog. Cars kill more kids than dogs.

If you support cars in JC, then you support killing kids.

That simple enough for you???


You choose to protect animals who attack children sometimes causing death. These vicious dogs attack without being provoke. People do not choose to have an auto accident but peoople choose to have these vicious animals that maimed and kill children. There is something wrong with a person that puts the life of an animal above the life of a human especially a child. I suggest you get counseling. There is even a quote in the Bible Matthew 15:26 about not giving to dogs what belongs to children. That quote refers to food but I am talking about life. You value the wrong life. Children comes first.


You choose to protect Toyotas who attack children sometimes causing death. These vicious Toyotas attack without being provoked. People do not choose to have an auto accident but people choose to have these vicious Toyotas that maim and kill children.

See how that works? Hold dog owners (and car owners) accountable, not pit bulls or Toyotas..


When does a car decides on its own to kill someone? These vicious pit bulls look at children as prey, their actions are independent of their owners.


I am curious Yvonne, what is your experience working with dogs? I assume you are a certified animal behavioralist or dog trainer to speak so confidently about their behavior, yes?

Aside from your qualifications on dog training and behavior, do you propose ALL big dogs are banned? Or perhaps just an arbitrary list of breeds? German Shepherds? American Staffordshire Terriers? Dobermans? Boxers? Dogo Argentinos? Mastiffs? Rottweilers? Who do you, in your expert opinion, deem are inclined to attack and should be banned?

Also, my next door neighbor has a 75 lb "pit bull" mix and two young children who he is great with. Is there something wrong with it because it doesn't want to attack them? It is definitely guilty of excessive kissing and licks, but I don't think the kids mind. Would love your extremely qualified position on this matter, thanks so much.

You could also just ask an outspoken Christian conservative how he or she feels about Sharia Law. I've heard that some of them have opinions about it.


Your response Frank M is “what if.” The “what ifs” are happening but there are not getting any attention, I mentioned the Judge who discriminated against straight couples in performing marriages, now here is a video of another person providing a point I made earlier. He called numerous gay friendly bakeries and asked for a cake with the wording, “Gay marriage is wrong.” And he could not get a bakery to do this. The response is - we only make cookies to using the f word. The only people being prosecuted are Christians not the Judge or the gay friendly bakeries. There is so much hyprocrisy here.

Are you just choosing to ignore facts that are not convenient for your narrow world view or is it dementia (in which case I am sorry)? As previously pointed out, the Judge you reference did NOT discriminate against straight couples, but rather refused to do ANY marriages, straight or gay. And as someone else pointed out, judges have no civil obligation to perform marriages. Now you will pivot this inconvenient fact to something else...


Frank M, you are a typical liberal. WhenI give the facts, you make personal attacks. You ignore the gay bakeries and the Judge discriminating against Christians. Well he is another one, Muslim bakeries saying no to baking a same sex cake. Why don't gay activists take them to court? They don't have the guts. This person went to Dearborn, MI
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgWIhYAtan4


Firstly, I am not Frank M and I am not a liberal. There are many people who considered themselves conservatives for decades that have left the republican party due to the religious right taking it over.

Having said that, I don't know what a gay bakery is. Is the bakery itself homosexual? Like if a cupcake shop only dates cupcake shops, and won't date a cake shop? How scandalous!

About the Judge, you still have not read the article, have you? She did not discriminate against anyone as she refused to do ANY WEDDINGS, straight or gay.

And yes, those bakeries refusing this gentleman (who is a republican YouTube personality) are just as bad as the Christian ones who do the same thing.

if you bothered to read the article you would know how incredibly misleading your statement is. The Judge in question was simply applying what she believed to be the proper application of the Equal Protection Clause of our United States Constitution, and effectively would not perform ANY MARRIAGES until she could do so for all people. She did not say "I will only marry homosexual couples."

Lo and behold, soon after this happened, the SCOTUS would agree with this Judge and her thoughts on the Equal Protection Clause.

And since his boss' defeat, he has literally devoted himself to challenging (unsuccessfully) almost any initiative our current Mayor pushes through.

While facts have obviously not stopped you from propagating falsehoods in the past, the notion that circus animals are always killed when the circus closes is simply not true. There are a number of sanctuaries and rescue organizations who facilitate their transfer when returning to the wild is not an option. For example: The Performing Animal Welfare Society

I don't think most people in this thread are upset Rainbow is closing. But rather by the type of place supposedly coming in and what those owners are known to bring the retail & customer element. I don't think anyone is this thread is anti-change. Just many don't like the direction its headed when there are options that would be progressive and suit more of our tastes. People are justifiably worried about the "Hoboken bro" element getting worse and continuing to affect our quality of life and enjoyment of our city. And residents not being the target demo of these new businesses.


this is a well-reasoned and pleasantly-put-forth argument. so of course it's getting shouted down.


Right?? Thanks. Smh at some of these replies.

Not sure about the others, but I'm talking about Newark ave/dtjc of about 10-12 years ago, or even 6-7 years ago (heck I even liked it in the late 90's/early 2000's). Fun and diverse stuff was happening then - more art, more diversity of people, you got to really know your neighbors because we were the ones going out and making stuff happen and going to support the businesses, bars, restaurants. People were friendly to each other and greeted each other on the sidewalks all the time. You could go bar hopping and see friends and familiar faces pretty much everywhere. Hoboken bros stayed in Hoboken. What we had was special and its depressing that the growth trend didn't continue in the vein in which it was headed because that was great and had a lot of variety to offer and potential to get even better.

I spent 17 years living there from '96-2013. As a single woman that whole time there I never felt unsafe. So glad I got out when I did as I really can't stand what's happened to an area that I really use to adore living in and going out in as recently as just 4-5 years ago. Everything is being sold out now. I don't go down there anymore because last I tried a night out there a year ago, it was such a let down. :(


I don't doubt your bad experience but I usually go for a walk down Newark Ave Fri/Sat nights and the pedestrian plaza is nothing like downtown Hoboken. This past weekend it was flooded with kids playing, couples, families, and other people like me wandering around. There was absolutely no lack of diversity you cite (I too remember DTJC 15 years ago). Porta did not have a line of bros with popped collars, and I must have run into 10+ people I know just from living in the neighborhood. Anywhere you go there will be annoying drunk people but I question whether anyone complaining here actually spends time in the area on weekend nights. It's really not bad at all.

Huh? My point was that they are willing to criticize this own party. Dems will not. I am still waiting for someone to explain how she is qualified to be president or to name one of her accomplishments.

I do not believe any Republicans critical of Trump have come out in support of Clinton.


This article shows notable "defectors" on both sides (there are many more republican names voting for Hillary than vice versa):
