Re: Why aren't the meetings broadcasted on the JC channel?

Disappointed to see no programming last night at 10:00 PM on the council meeting. I was told to contact Stephanie Daniels. For some reason there is never a problem running shows on the Mayor on Channel 96 but there is always a problem showing public meetings.

I want to thank Councilwoman Obsorne for responding to my concerns on the caucus and council meetings disappearing on Channel 96. For those with Channel 96, it is 10 AM to 2 PM in the mornings and 10 PM to 2 AM in the evenings. I still think an ordinance should be passed by the city council similar to the ordinance introduced by for Councilman Steven Fulop under the Healy Administration. The ordinance did not pass since Healy allowed the council meetings to be broadcasted, the caucus meetings were already broadcasted. Councilman Fulop said JC1TV should not be used for political purposes and I agree. I also believe the caucus and council meetings would not return if I did not bring this to the council attention.

Our money is going to social programs for immigrants, in the billions of dollars, not to the needs of Americans. Bridges are in disrepair. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/us ... ridges-need-work/8091313/

Fulop claims state aid redistribution is about helping rich suburbs, but he's wrong. The biggest beneficiaries would be towns like Clifton, Bayonne, and Bloomfield.

Even when middle-class suburbs would gain aid, they desperately need it.

No one talks about the cost of immigrantion, we spend billions when you add healthcare, education, housing but in the meantime, there is no money for bridges and tunnels which are falling apart and will becoma a tragedy. The illegal immigrant population will become part of the 47% that do not pay taxes.

Thanks SAG, but the discrepancies in the numbers is making my head explode.

JC 2015 Equalized Valuation= 21,661,162,459
therefore levy at 2.2291%= 496,257,231

So what is the $217m you said on you site was the "regular municipal tax levy"?

Does it make sense to you that the 146 abated properties represent 30% of the entire value of the city?


The 146 properties could easily be 30% of the entire value of the city.

Many of the PILOTed buildings are skyscrapers and skyscrapers have crazily high valuations. If one PILOTed office building is worth $300 million that alone would be 1.4% of Jersey City's total valuation.

The 2.2291% ETR has county, school, muni, and even library and county and open space taxes combined into it. If you combine all of the different taxes JC taxpayers pay and divide by the Equalized Valuation, you'd get a figure that was in the low 2% range.

If you see discrepancies it might be because JC's Equalized Valuation is growing so rapidly and people might be using recent figures from 2014 or 2015 that are now out of date.

It might also be due to there being certain relatively small, obscure taxes that sometimes are neglected in calculations (like library, open space, and even a $5,429,458 "school levy as required by municipal budget" (I have no idea what that is))

See "Property Tax Tables" > Tax Summary to see all of the property taxes you pay.

http://www.state.nj.us/dca/divisions/ ... urces/property_tax.html#1


I have been saying that for a long time about the 30% but no one cares.

Great- now actually read the article you shared because it literally states that the health officials say residents want to blame the migrants but the larger problem is actually the declining vaccination rate in Arizona. The first line of the article even points out that they are pressing federal officials for better cooperation because some of the EMPLOYEES were slow to be vaccinated. I'm sure Trump propping up all these anti-science morons will only increase this issue and then you get to read some article from Fox News that tells you it's just all the brown people bringing measles in.


Yes, I did read the article. The US was tardy in vaccinating the immigrants, but let's get real, vaccines are also available in other countries. The immigrants were not vaccinated. If nothing else, the UN does give out vaccines. There are other health problems like diabetes and heart disease which also puts a strain on our health care system. http://www.newsmax.com/Finance/NealAs ... ncy/2013/05/09/id/503579/

I went to the Council meeting to request an ordinance similar to Fulop's ordinance requesting Healy to place council meeting on JC1TV. According to Councilman Lavarro, the meetings are being shown. Councilwoman Osborne contacted the person in charge with her cell phone. Fios has been down for 10 days and Comcast is showing the meetings twice a day. Unfortunately, that statement is false about Comcast. These meetings last 3, 4, or more hours. They are not being shown.
Fulop's ordinance did not past in 2010 because Healy Administration broadcasted the meeting without his ordinance.
I will continue bringing this up because it is an election year and our public television station should not become Fulop TV.

Hey, TonyTwoPoops, what a silly name, now returning to the subject, the USA is 5% of the world's population. We cannot allow people in that want to come in, we will be taxing people to death, as it is we are pushing that debt off to the future. Futhermore, immigration is a privilege not a right.
It is wrong to compare the immigration from the early 20th century to now. First, there was plenty of jobs, second, Ellis Island did a health check, unlike today where people enter some are very sick and diseases like measles have returned. Unfortunately, a few people do die from mealses. But there are more serious diseases coming here like leprosy which rarely makes the paper, but it was reported at Beth Israel some years ago. TB is high with the immigrant population and this is deadly for American seniors.
The European immigrants built their own Catholic schools so they were not a burden on taxpayers. NJ spends $20,000 each on student and there is no distinction on American citizens and non-American citizens on education.
Many hospitals were used by recent immigrants that some went out of business, I remember an article from the New York Tmes in 2002 on this very subject.

Just want to clarify something- you are allegedly super religious ....but you want to send people who are fleeing for their lives back to a certain death because you need the parking spots?


So everyone who comes here is fleeing for their lives? I doubt that. By the way there is the negative to immigration that no one talks about. Let's compare Cuba and Poland. Many Cubans people flee here and Castro until his death and friends are still in power more than 60 years later. When President Reagan saw the uprising of the Polish people against Communism, he closed the borders to the USA. The people had to address this problem. We know what happened. They won and they have freedom. Cuba is still under a dictatorship.


Well - first of all, nice deflection on you being the worst kind of religious zealot. "I know people are getting blown up but what about my parking spots???!!"

Your idea of shutting off any chance of exit from the country in distress by not allowing anyone to seek refuge elsewhere because it will somehow force them to figure out a resolution is absolutely stupid. You are essentially blocking all the exits of a building on fire with that strategy. Be glad there is no actual hell because that line of thought certainly guarantees you'll end up there if there is one. Look at Aleppo and tell me how well that strategy of yours works.

Also you don't think refugees are fleeing for their lives? Do you read anything besides JCList? Can you point out Syria on a map?


We let in the Boston Bombers family and their children said thanks by creating a bomb. We also paid for other fees. Russia also warned us about this family but we ignored this.

Hey Yvonne- Your son isn't a refugee. This is a totally irrelevant story. No one gives a shit. Try to keep up.


I was making a point, because immigrants come here on tempory Visas and stay. Case in point, the blind sheik that caused the first bombing in 1993 on the World Trade Center. He made his home in Journal Square. People do use vacations as a ploy and the Canadian guard was not having any of it that day.

I watched the all of the presidental debates. I wanted to see if the media would bring up questions concerning statements made by Clinton on religion. None of the debates asked the question on faith considering Clinton said in April 2015 that people have to stop believing in their religion, it is bias. That question should been asked by Clinton on what she means by bias. I saw the video when she was speaking. I feel the media was covering up for her. I had no problem with them attacking Trump, so yes, the media does have a bias.

Most backyards are small and the growing areas are even smaller. You can remove top soil and replace it with clean soil. Many serious urban gardens have elevated spaces to grow their crops due to this problem. If you don't want to remove soil then have an elevated growing area which is probably easier on your back.

I also suggest you plant marigolds which acts as a repellant against insects. Both marigolds and tomato plants need direct sunlight.

If you are using seeds, then start them indoor in small pots probably peat pots. The problem gardeners have is the weather, just because it might be warm in March, remember it could snow in April. Allow 6 to 8 weeks before planting. However, if things go wrong, you can purchase seedlings. Personally, I like the seedlings that Rutgers created. They are made for our climate.

Your answer is funny, I am aware that the city gave Comcast Channel 1 and we got 96 in return, but there are no caucus or council meetings on 96. Basically, 96 has become Fulop TV.

There is a contract signed by the city of JC years ago to allow Comcast to run cables in JC in exchange for public access, this also includes access to filming meetings. You are talking expense, I am talking about a contract that the city enter with Comcast. For all intense and purpose, Fulop is using public access for his own personal use.

Years ago, Earl Morgan wrote an article on Bret Schundler doing something similar but at least Schundler had the caucus meetings on television, something Fulop is not doing. Money was given to the city for public access from Comcast for the public, instead that money went to city hall which put in a studio.

It is time to stick to the subject, many people do have cable they choose to have cable and to bring up the subject that cable is expense is a strawman argument. It has nothing to do with the subject.
