Re: Car flipped over on Webster and Hutton

Saw an accident here in JC late one night. Watched the guy get out with a couple of beer bottles, toss them in a near by garbage can. No cops after about 20 min. Called JCPD and explained what I saw and that there were no police, dispatcher replies, "What do you want me to do about it?" I love when we have to beg to get services around here.

ok... So here I hear a lot of complaints but they have been doing this for years. Cops dont seem to do anything and the numerous complaints dont do anything. So aside from paying the goons, what really should we be doing here? If they are violating state law, should their operators licensed not be revoked? or is this just another JC thing where the law doesnt apply?

Most arguments you hear from those in the field are, "hey, what we are doing isn't "illegal" so what is the problem? If you would work hard like us you would make the kind of money we make too.." I always love that one.. As far as Smith? it isnt that he isnt guilty. He was acquitted. Never forget when he got his friends at the SCC to force an eminent domain on the lot that Stop and shop bought in the heights for 6.4 million and would have paid for a new police station, 300k in tax revenue and 220 jobs.. and the lot still sits vacant... Another fine JC politic example..

So does that mean you will walk to work from now on, because it is a privilege to drive? It is an illusion. if the intelligence agencies are doing their jobs the real threats never make it to where you will see something happen. But never at the expense of your freedom to travel anywhere in the US and its territories.

WHY IS ALL OF THE FOREST OF LINCOLN PARK BEING CLEAR CUT!!??

For anyone who experienced the beautiful placid lake opposite the parking lot (not the one directly across 440 the next parking lot beyond) there was acres of green with a good sized lake with Crane (birds) and other woodland animals.. it didnt seem like you were in the middle of a city. Apparently, it all got bulldozed and the lake drained. I have some pix I will post later. Can anyone shed some insight as to why we needed to destroy that much green and wetlands...in of all places a county park? I dont remember seeing anything about this in the papers... like ever..

The Weichert course is excellent to get started. Obviously, it will depend on your teacher, but they do know what they are doing in regards to getting started.

And I wonder if the department of "Baking and Insurance" guarantees good cakes?

Quick math here.... 8 million divided by 82 equals approx $100k per position correct? Does that seem a little on the high side to anyone? I've been reading too many articles lately about cops, firemen, and teachers making over 100k in NJ. I wish I knew that before I pissed away all of that money on undergrad and grad school!


According to Salary.com Senior Engineer in Aerospace with a masters degree in this area code would make 81.5k/year...totally equal i am sure.

While I honor our real heroes which are the firemen and women of jersey city, this is not proportionate to our city budget. by the way many engineering jobs dont have close to the compensation packages that the city workers have. And while their salarys may be reducing the budget by 8 million what is their payout for sickleave, non used vacation days and pension?

When your kids are in private schools, you don't care about the quality of public education. When your precious little snowflakes go to NYU, you don't care about tuition rates of public schools.


Agreed. While I certainly understand the concept of if they have more money to build their business the more they will be identified to do it, I have trouble condoning this. When a regular family is stretched to the limit and using credit cards to buy milk or put gas in their car so they can goto work, knowing full well that the money they are making wont cover the 29% interest rate that they already cant afford this month because they have to spend all of their money on independent health care plus the co-pays and then take time off of work to take care of their kids because they cant have a nanny. It's economies of scale. I once heard an argument from one of the 1%'ers who said "hey the cost of private schooling is just so expensive!" When I pointed out that that was a moot issue considering those who cant afford a private school, so it isnt even on their radar as they are trying to figure out how to keep their lights on. The person responded "hey, it isnt my fault they didnt work hard enough to get the extra things in life." I couldn't beleive what i heard. I know plenty of people who work tirelessly and still barely stay afloat. The one thing I realized from this was that there are opportunities that come along and there are some that dont, but being able to recognize them is what sets people apart. Either way, I dont think those who 'don't' recognize it should be penalized.

They are renovating Washington Park and now it is beautiful! Well designed and new play ground will be opening soon. Yes there appears to be more gang activity as of late and not thrilled about it, but neither do the police. I have seen a shift in attitude amongst them which is very refreshing. e.g. you call about even quality of life issues, they come! I think the biggest thing is as a resident, to call, call, call the cops whenever you see these things happening whether it is tagging, or someone wheeling a HD tv down the street yelling that "they just found it and know that it works and will take 80 bucks for it.."

So am I understanding this correctly that it is OKAY for this man to be buying this gun... while yes wrong that he got stuck up... i agree with Heights that if the kids were getting away, how does a man get 2 tires?

I heard something similar happen over on webster ave, but it was a corrections officer (not a police office by the way), and he was upset over a delivery guy pulling too close to his minivan. Pulled a gun that he wasnt supposed to have on him (he wasnt going to or from work), hit the guy for being too close, and when it went to court, all charges were dropped. I heard there were witnesses that testified, and apparently it is ok as this was his 3rd offense. My question is, how did he make it past 1 with his job? It is bad enough with the regular local thugs, but when the powers that be start acting like the thugs why are we paying the tax increase and the re-val? Hmmm...

Re: Car Dealers on 440
#29
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Many years ago I worked in a dealership....I emphasize "MANY". But the tactics are the same. I hated it because it was the epitome of how to cheat someone... Did some people get good deals? Yea some... But mostly it was things like selling "rust underbody protection" for $700 which they used a $3 can of rustoleum under the car. Even at that time, the manufacturers offered a 10 year 100k mile warranty against rust. Basically when the person would come in we were instructed to feel out the persons "pay-ability" $XXX per month. Then we would find a car "in that range". Once we did that, we then went to the manager to get our cost per month... we already knew what it was.. way above where you said you could pay... we would shoot the breeze with the manager and then come back out and give that to the person who would then bolt up ready to leave... we would then reply... let me see if i can do better... this goes on and on until you come to a price.. .usually a good deal higher than where you started. Then you get to the add ons.. then financing. It keeps occurring to wear down your expectations.. The bit thing is that you truly go in their armed.. find out what consumer reports says the car is selling for around the region. This will let you know if you are getting a good deal or not. Once you know your range of what the real price of the vehicle is, you can estimate approximately how much it will cost per month online. Experiment with various rates as your credit score or condition may be different. Also know that you bank can finance the vehicle, nothing says you have to do the dealerships financing. If you are savvy and firm, you may actually do better. And there are a few dealers out there who actually fight hard to get you a good rate and a good deal to move their inventory. If you bank or credit union can offer you a better rate, walk away, take the vin number (many times they will tell you it sold while you went to get financing, but you will probably find the car on the lot somewhere) . Hope this helps...

$155,000.00 with a raise and they are complaining about contributing $2300 a year for health insurance!? That isnt too far off for what I pay per month! Besides, the raise will more than cover their contribution, so theoretically that means we are paying for their contribution... How many individual family members who send their kids to that school each have a salary of over 100k? How many people out their got raises this year (banking and investments industry doesn't count)? I am curious...
