Yes. Worked FOR the governor. Isn't THE governor. Many people worked FOR the governor who aren't like the governor. Are you a clone of your boss? It's idiotic thinking like this that will have us crying at the end of this term.


Lol she was his running mate and endorsed by him for the last election...so yeah. You hang around enough trash you start to stink...which is why Trump’s White House is a revolving door and each person entering is more incompetent, corrupt, and unqualified than the last.

::waits for exasperated explanation that the White House doesn’t have a real revolving door::

$15/hr is barely a livable wage. We are way behind on that front.


A tax cut isn't a subsidy. A tax cut means they take less, a subsidy means they give you. Might mean the same thing to you in terms of dollar flows, but they are very different from a morality perspective.

Also, the "1%", I'm pretty sure that they are disportionately represented on this forum, in Jersey City, and in New Jersey in general.

1%ers aren't billionaires, they make $300k. Very good money, but in DT JC, with great credit, zero debt, and a large down payment, you'll still be in a 1000 sqft condo.

The tax cut has been effective for more than 80% of taxpayers. You may argue that it's been eaten up by increasing health costs, inflation, etc.... but those things would have gone up at the exact same rate with or without the tax cut. So, on the net, it's still a savings.

70% of tax filers in the US use standard deductions. They don't care about the property tax deduction being capped. That 70% aren't the wealthiest 70%.


Cool opinions bro. We weren’t discussing only NJ. Obviously wasn’t talking about the people at the bottom half of the 1% who technically qualify but the people who are at the very top that are literally hoarding all the wealth unchecked.

Oops there you go being distracted by something shiny again and ignoring the big picture! Those bonuses are basically nothing compared to what they have saved on tax breaks. Wow a pay increase to a whole $11/hr from Walmart who saved BILLIONS, is run by the RICHEST people in the country, and pushes their workers to apply for public assistance? They are still paying poverty wages even with that tax break.

http://money.cnn.com/2018/01/30/news/ ... worker-bonuses/index.html


Walmart, for example, said on January 11 that it would raise its minimum wage to $11 an hour and give employees a one-time bonus of up to $1,000. In all, the initiatives cost $700 million, the company said.Later in the month, Walmart announced that it was buying back $4 billion in company debt. A Walmart spokesman said tax reform was "not the incentive" behind the buyback.
Related: Some of the companies giving out raises and bonuses because of tax reform
Wells Fargo raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour, from $13.50.

As far as job creation and tax relief under our President spend a minute and do some research-many CEOs credit Trump and his policies for the surge-including the manufacturing jobs Obama said would never return. Are you telling me the new jobs in the steel industry had anything to do with Obama?


JCRider, yes you may not be in the 80% getting tax relief-but with that real estate tax you're paying obviously you own a valuable home. SALT deductions favored high tax states with bloated spending-hopefully having this go away will cause second thoughts about wasteful spending. You're just going to have to pay your fair share, like Murphy is asking the well to do in NJ.


What Trump walked into and what Obama walked into are completely different. But I’m not going to bother explaining that to you because you’re just here to deflect until people get tired of disproving you and ignore you.

No matter how much you repeat his lies that doesn’t make them true sweetie.

“The Trade Partnership, a consulting firm, says the tariffs would increase U.S. employment in the steel and aluminum sector by about 33,000 jobs but would cost 179,000 jobs in the rest of the economy.”

Those CEO’s have no plan to pass tax breaks onto the workers.

I mean a very basic google search shows most economists are saying job growth has been an increasing trend for years since obama was in office but sure buddy- it’s “optimism”. Decreasing regulation only benefits corporations and exploits our environment and workers- it’s not a good thing unless you value profit over people.

Can you do any thinking for yourself without deflecting to Obama or Hilary? People have already explained to you (like you’re a child) that republicans fought that healthcare bill every step of the way so that it became a shell of what it was supposed to be. Grow up.

Tax returns mean shit when health insurance premiums are cost prohibitive and we are gutting fundamental social services that we are allegedly too broke to fund. Real easy to get you distracted and excited by something shiny huh? It’s also been proven that the unemployment rate is a reflection of the work done by the previous administration and Trump has done absolutely nothing to increase jobs except for all the available openings in his cabinet as people flee.

I’d rather pay more taxes and not have people dying from preventable diseases they can’t afford treatment for. Most people who aren’t sociopaths feel this way. I’m sorry you aren’t capable of empathy. Seek help.

If you are hoarding all the wealth and exploiting your employees by paying so little that they need public assistance you sure as fuck should be paying more taxes. There is no reason corporations or the 1% need or deserve any additional tax breaks. You need to look inside yourself and wonder why you think you or anyone else should tolerate being exploited by a government that values profit over its own people.

Because trumps plan disproportionately benefits corporations and the already rich instead of regular working class people ya rube. Trump and the GOP have convinced you that regular people do not deserve access to health care or a decent education.

Silly personal insults show you can't argue on merit, you know that, right?


None of that was an insult it was simply an observation based on what you publically put out there. You constantly make excuses for people that blatantly show through their actions that they don’t care about others (or you) and you fall over yourself trying to defend them even when it’s not in your best interest to do so. It doesn’t make sense.

When someone points that out to you, you then try to attack whoever you assume they must have voted for like they have the same blind devotion as you. I would never fall over myself trying to defend Murphy just because I ended up voting for him- I can see flaws in almost every politician I’ve had to vote for and I can admit that without having to deflect to their opponent.

Sorry you got worked up... my rhetorical points have always been focused on what appears to be hypocrisy in government activity. Should the state normalize/enable gambling addictions through a state sponsored lottery advertisements while regulating tobacco/alcohol advertisements. That's what I am trying to rationalize.

I am more accepting of the argument to decriminalize possession rather than listening to a pro-legal point of political view that talks about all the new tax revenues. Saving a kid from a minor controlled substance possession criminal record is obvious. Listening to the political argument about 25% taxes and gloating about new revenue streams as they do to justify the NJ Lottery makes you wonder about the human costs.

All I am doing is posing some questions about the about what boundaries are good for a society... and what isn't. And also what is the role of government in controlling the lives of citizens? Why shouldn't we legalize prostitution?


You’re cute. Aren’t you a Trump supporter? I can’t take these statements as you sincerely caring about the well being of our society seriously if that’s the case. It comes across like you’re just trying to talk in circles so it almost seems like you have a point.

Never forget sole purpose of the “War on Drugs” was to put black people in jail. Your pearl clutching is fooling no one.

It seems plausible that maybe web services were paid for. And in the middle of that an editor of a site could say "I really like this candidate. I want to endorse her." Isn't it up to the audience or readership to determine if the endorsement is worthwhile? To attempt to belittle Symes or ChicPeaJC for this incident seems to me to be snobbery. Any downtown candidate would want Lynn's support or an article on ChicPeaJC endorsing them. The clutching of pearls here is really a bit much.


For someone who on twitter is acting like you just discovered Symes this week you are certainly committed to posting incessantly about her on here. Just an observation. Your support comes off as very troll-ish.

This person is obviously super-psyched Yvonne wasn't paying more than $500 in water per year


I love how people are acting like anyone that lived here 20 years ago is somehow magically able to afford to continue living here through all the increasing rent and housing costs and enjoying all the new things JC has to offer. That dude probably just got priced out to a different shitty neighborhood.

There has been nothing said about Symes that would be considered misogynistic. The decision to use her budget on a paid chicpea post is enough to make me question her judgement. Her Dixon connection is a huge turn off.
