Re: Is being ignorant a requirement to work for the JC Parking Authority?

Not much can beat the warm fuzzy JCPA feelings you get when you have to personally go to muni court to clear a parking ticket gotten by the guys who stole your car - 5 days after you reported it stolen... (so it slips through their fingers, and then you can't even clear it up by phone or mail - way to respect the crime victim/citizen, JC...)

ok that's the last time I harp on that.

Yeah $104K of those tax abatement dollars went instead to Kabili T. to march in a few parades (and to turn out the black vote when needed) and $46K went to the lawyer handling Healy's Bradley Beach incident to be something called (almost comically) a 'part-time legislative research officer'.

NPR (and that magazine) is right, the city *is* a joke. But it's only 'endearing' if you don't have to live here.

Re: Booker, Healy urge Senate to pass gun bill -- NJ Moves Step Closer To Strict Handgun Sales Limit

I think they *are* suing out of state dealers.

Quote:
New Jersey is focusing on its own citizens who follow strict guidelines.
If you read the article (did you read the article?) they're finding a lot of guns involved in crimes bought locally, in other words people in the business of buying for others who aren't able to (unless you just think they're lying about the numbers).

THAT'S who the bill focuses on (jeez louise).



What's the waste of money? The conditioning and electricity in the state house as they signed the bill? Because this sounds like sound legislation to me - I even think the limit of 12 per year is still ridiculous - personal protection? Who's buying even 4 guns a year for personal protection?


oh yeah. the nuts are.

Ms. Richardson seems to ask the JJ editorial board and its readership to call it what it is ... corruption and cronyism.
I don't think she comes even close to saying that, she would prefer to not call it anything - that there be *no* accountability, for fear of being labeled racist: it's a great cover.


Ironically, I took the article to be looking for *more* black leaders, *more* blacks in power - not less. The rub for the Floods/Cunninghams/Richardsons/Tabilis of the JC is that what they're talking about is a *cleaner* black leadership.

I also wish we had cleaner *white* leadership in JC (the only difference being that it happens that there *is* a white Obama on the JC scene, so we'll see...)


p.s. and could it be maybe the paper's paying more attention to black leadership than Filipino leadership only in proportion to the relative sizes of the populations in JC?

no but they're both corrupt - and that's the real issue, not race.

Obama is threatening to her because he threatens her tired old trump card, which is to imply racism when the obvious stench of corruption around here is brought up.

For our local yokels like her, Cunningham, Flood, Tabili et al, Obama threatens their defense of last resort - but for the race industrialists like Jackson/Sharpton etc., Obama is even more threatening because he challenges their whole business model.

ok so if the paper doesn't endorse Sandra Cunningham (the same Sandra Cunningham who refused to attend any public debates when 'running' for her late husband's state senate seat and whose 'foundation' spends 85% on 'expenses' and 15% on charity according to tax records) - then you're "not prepared for the kind of change Barack Obama refers to" (code for racist...)

I understand there are like 3200 signatures on that petition, so it should survive the verification process, but it'll probably go down in November unless there's a serious voter turnout - because (for example) Kabili Tayari isn't paid $104K to march in a few parades, he's there to deliver votes on command - and the unions and the vendors and the contractors for whom pay-to-play is standard Jersey City operating procedure will deliver their share of bought-and-paid-for votes too.

Jersey City Obama event (gas prices)
#21
Home away from home
Home away from home


This Wednesday, we'll be at a gas station near you—we're pushing back against the RNC's new ads blaming Obama for gas prices.

We need everyone out to remind people McCain is Big Oil's candidate—not Obama. There's a National Day of Action for an Oil-Free President event in Jersey City. Can you make it?

<http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/ev ... 0-3501955-ZOReoGx&t=1> Click to RSVP <http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/ev ... 0-3501955-ZOReoGx&t=2>

Dear MoveOn member,

Have you seen the latest ad from the RNC? With holiday travel and gas prices on every channel, the Republicans are spending over $3 million in the next week to convince voters that high gas prices are Barack Obama's fault.

What's scary is that their strategy is working—even though the Republicans' energy policy got us into this mess!

So this Wednesday, we're pushing back with our National Day of Action for an Oil-Free President. We'll be gathering at gas stations around the country to reach out to voters and make sure they know John McCain is Big Oil's candidate and that he won't solve our energy crisis. Can you join the event in Jersey City?

Host: Naava P.—fellow MoveOn member
Where: HOLLAND TUNNEL GAS STATION (in Jersey City)
When: Wednesday, Jul. 9, 2008, at 5:00 PM

Here's the link to RSVP:

http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/ev ... 13130-3501955-ZOReoGx&t=3 <http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/ev ... 0-3501955-ZOReoGx&t=3>

We'll be in front of gas stations with signs and fliers to remind people that McCain is in the pocket of Big Oil. His campaign is run by oil industry lobbyists,1 and he looks to Big Oil for big campaign contributions.2 We can't count on him to push for alternative energy solutions or help lower gas prices.

But soon ads blaming Obama for gas prices will be up all over the country. And people squeezed by energy costs may forget that it was another Republican with close ties to Big Oil and former oil lobbyists advising him in the White House who brought us to this point.

Now is the time to make sure voters know John McCain won't solve our energy crisis. Sign up to attend a gas station event now:

http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/ev ... 13130-3501955-ZOReoGx&t=4 <http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/ev ... 0-3501955-ZOReoGx&t=4>

Hope you can make it! Thanks for all you do.

So if the city could just revise the tax commitment I previously agreed to, I *might* manage to find enough change under the couch cushions to pay maybe .003 percent or so of the difference. Would that be ok? Great, thanks. I can meet the council in the parking lot behind city hall - I'll be the guy with the brown paper bag. -- 20's ok?
