do you need to be grandfathered in here to have an opinion?


No, I don't doubt that the place is lackluster. It was simply that there were three posts in a row from users with NAME### and fewer than 5 previous posts.

It has definitely happened here before, much like on Yelp, that a place opens and competitors or friends/family try to swing public perception through false reviews.

Should have been "nearly $2,500," so I've changed to that.

The SID is assuming two officers three days a week, working about 6 hours each at $65 an hour. That's $2,340 for the week. They think 26 weeks tops.


Gotcha. I was having trouble parsing that with Two Boots complaining about $200/yr.

Does that mean there are roughly 300 businesses in the HDSID and they would all have to contribute to this fund even if they're all the way down at Newark and 3rd or York and Grove and not open during these hours?

I'm all for some kind of change here. I don't think that closing the plaza really solves for anything.

That said, the $3000 number quoted in the article makes no sense to me. If we just consider "warmer months" to be May - September we're talking about 60 working days and 2 officers per day.

Are we expected to believe that these off-duty cops are going to work 5-6 hour shifts for $25?

SOS, cute deflection but more than 30 "hate crimes" supposedly committed by Trump supporters were found to have been caused by liberals in the 2 month period from Electiom Day to December 31, 2016 alone.

http://lidblog.com/top-30-fake-hate-crimes/

FAR from isolated incidents, liberals are the primary perpetrators.

Like I said, I look forward to seeing more liberals get arrested!


Great article.

The first few items on the list reference hate crime "stories" shared on Facebook, not reported by actual news organizations. There are also two or three items on the list that reference what we can assume are white, conservative Trump supporters who attempted to frame the Black Lives Matter movement.

While I don't doubt that there are plenty of stupid people out there who are more than capable of committing the acts mentioned, there is a great sense of irony that you seem to be missing. This is exactly where the concept of "fake news" comes from that the president has co-opted to label unflattering, but factually accurate articles from proper journalists.

"Fake news" are the stories and sensational tabloid articles, very much in line with what LidBlog generates, that are shared via social media and get perpetuated through the groupthink mentality enabled by the algorithms driving your Facebook feed.

This benefits no one and dumbs down the general populace on both sides such that they don't bother to vet or validate anything they read. It is lowest common denominator nonsense that preys on our most basic psychology in confirmation bias.

For anyone interested, Lidblog.com, the source cited here, is behind such objective journalism as:

Presently, the danger posed by our disgusting media is amplified by the rats in the deep state.

Here's an example:

If the language surrounding the investigation remains florid and purple, if Democrats try to please their Trump-hating constituents by screaming impeachment and liberal media tries to garner audience by jumping openly and vociferously on the bandwagon, the Trumpians will respond in kind by stirring the pot through their media and their argumentation.

The result might well be violence. Not rhetorical violence. Actual violence. Actual political violence. Actual conflicts between anti-Trumpers and Trumpers. At demonstrations. In the streets. Of our cities. Political violence of a sort we haven’t seen in 50 years, and maybe haven’t really seen in this country in the modern era. Those who believe Trump is a unique menace whose threat to our democratic way of life will be met with those who believe the elites are using illicit means to oust the legitimately elected president of the United States.

This is not a fantasy. This is one possible future. And every rational person who cares about the future of the country should be mindful of it, and should work to forestall it.

https://www.commentarymagazine.com/pol ... iggering-the-coup-theory/


I agree with the general sentiment of the article but fail to see how it argues your point. First, it is an opinion piece that sites no individual instance of its underlying conceit. The closest it gets, other than the blanket statement about Democrats that you quoted, is here:

"Already pro-Trump voices on the right are calling the leaks that led to Michael Flynn’s firing evidence of an attempted coup d’etat. The fevered use of such terms is part and parcel of the way in which social media amplifies the melodrama of daily news stories."

My opinion of the problem is that we have a president who is fanning these flames through incendiary comments such as:

"The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

There have been zero instances in which the administration, or anyone, has pointed to a specific story where one of these outlets got something objectively wrong. It very much feels that terms like "fake news" are used because they are simple, easily repeatable catch-phrases that lead those uttering them to think they've won an argument or are absolved of real debate.

i think said reporter would justifiably be fired if he called mrs obama or anyone by the "n" word or any other derogatory term. i do not think said reporter would be fired if he called mrs obama a hooker. and btw, some escorts are very hard working and respectable people. anyway, enough of the faux outrage.


As some one who refers to President Trump as scumbag... thanks for your impartial opinion of the libel of the First Lady by another hack reporter from the NYT.


It would be libel if the nyt printed this statement as fact. It was said in conversation at a party so it is slander at best, but you know as well as I that this dude's comment will have cause zero damages for the First Lady. Again, please point to the disgusting work printed by the disgusting media that actually matter.

The Gallup poll tells a different story:

On Sunday Jan. 22, two days after being sworn in, 45 percent of respondents said they disapproved of Trump’s job performance and 45 percent approved. By Friday Jan. 27, the percentage who disapproved rose to 50 and percentage who approved dipped to 42.

Other national surveys show similarly low approval ratings for the President. Forty-four percent of respondents to a Quinnipiac survey released Thursday said they disapproved of his handling of the presidency thus far, while only 36 percent approved.

Gallup’s daily results are taken from telephone interviews with 1,500 adults nationwide. The margin of error is plus or minus three points.


Saturday's number upped the disapproval rating to 51%. Here's a look at recent presidents and how long they took to reach majority disapproval:

To add on here because I cannot edit my post, I do not care about this silly mistake. It has been corrected. My response to you was only to point out that no matter the issue, you seem to be willing to tow the party line. You're being deliberately obtuse instead of saying, "Yeah, stupid mistake."

Much more significant, stances have been made on the updated whitehouse.gov pages. I tried to re-direct to one. The reason that news outlets picked up on this is because it is an easy target. They can say, "Oh look at this! They're trying to sell jewelry! Can you believe it!" No one is going to whitehouse.gov to get shopping tips, but that does not mean the First Lady should be able to have a bio that includes my jewelry line is called ____, and you can find it on here.

This is "reporters" trying to get knee jerk reactions from the anti-Trump camp on an easy story while they (hopefully) push for further detail on that abomination of an energy "plan."

Amazing, so you're going to maintain responsible stewardship of the environment by making no mention of wind, solar or any renewable energy source and also remove legislature that promotes those very types of energy.

How do you even find your way to a site like gotnews.com?

Back to the confirmed list, so far we've got:

An NEC pick who is the president of Goldman Sachs. Solid pick to guide economic policy and likely a true champion of the middle class.

A Labor pick who doesn't believe in a living minimum wage or overtime, with no government experience, whose only qualification seems to be having been an early, major campaign donor.

A Treasury pick from Goldman Sachs with no regulatory or governmental experience.

A Commerce pick who specialized in buying up companies in industries like steel, gas, and coal and then slashing jobs and pensions and cutting corners to turn a profit. Oh, and one of these coal companies had 96 "serious and substantial" health and safety violations, got 12 miners killed in an explosion, was fined less than $150k in the bargain--and still went to court to get the fine reduced. But he saved Trump from bankruptcy in the 90's, so that's okay.

A Small Business pick who systematically used labor loopholes to classify workers as independent contractors to deny overtime, used job creation credit tax credits while laying workers off, attacked unionization attempts, and whose organization maintained a de facto monopoly by crushing actual small businesses. The Trump Foundation's largest donor for a decade.

An Education pick who doesn't believe in public education--a billionaire MLM heiress trying to funnel public education money to private schools while simultaneously decreasing regulation and oversight of these private schools. Also has a stake in a private student loan company.

An HHS pick who has introduced legislation to let doctors opt out of medicare, wants to start a nationwide regulatory race to the bottom in health insurance, wants to ban Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds even for cancer screenings and prenatal care, and believes that prior to the ACA "not one" woman couldn't afford birth control. Voted no on reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, no on adding more children to SCHIP (children's health insurance), no on regulating tobacco as a drug, and no on giving mental healthcare equity with physical healthcare.

An AG pick who was too racist to be confirmed as a judge in the 80's.

A HUD pick with zero governmental, building, or development experience.

An EPA pick who is currently suing the EPA.

A NASA transition leader who doesn't believe in climate change.

And Trump isn't in office yet, wait for him to actually arrive. Bet you'll be silent once these so-called "sensationalized" headlines become reality.



My bad on the math.

On your second note, that's exactly the point. I didn't raise the topic. You did. I get that you're excited that your candidate won. That's fine, but it doesn't mean that you should be spewing a disingenuous summary of a brief conversation about potential future actions as if the president-elect has accomplished something.

I will praise domestic job creation once it happens. So, in your own words, "wait for him to actually arrive."
