Fair enough Yvonne, I can’t argue with that, but I’d like to hear more about the 350 year anniversary celebration that never happened. Who messed that up? It must be an interesting story.

I thought my questions were relevant, but if you’re telling me otherwise, I apologize for misunderstanding.

But to answer your own question, no, I do not want to see foreign memorials to American soldiers removed. However, I would not be opposed should a local government want to MOVE one, assuming it’s not a cemetery. If there was a clear goal in mind that would benefit the public good, who am I to protest? Likewise, who is Mr. Karczewski, and why would you take his side? Was it out of conviction or convenience?

When you canvassed for signatures, did you reveal to anyone that you believe, “Monuments should be about events in America, not another country.” Those were your words and I’m not taking them out of context, but of course you’re welcome to change your mind, take them back, and apologize for misspeaking.

If that's your argument, how respectful were you toward the victims of the Katyn massacre, their families and their compatriots, when you dismissively stated that our memorials should only be concerned with events in America?

And when you came to the defense of Stanislaw Karczewski, do you know what you bought with that package? Do you approve of his work to censor dissent and sanitize history? How about his party's recent unconstitutional effort to purge their Supreme Court? Are you convinced that name-calling is a worse offense?

The Mayor probably gets a bad grade for his diplomacy, but reacting to button-pushing is a challenge for all of us. I wouldn’t roll over for Poland’s Stanislaw Karczewski, nor should you.

Thanks in large part to Karczewski’s efforts, the Polish government enacted a law making it a crime to suggest complicity in any events of the Holocaust on behalf of any of the Polish people or on any part of their government. Violators can be fined or jailed for up to three years.

If you’re willing to believe that NOT ONE SOUL in Poland was complicit IN ANY WAY, of saving their own life by turning on their neighbors, you’re free to do so, but that would be naive. Remember, there were Americans colluding with our enemies, and they weren’t even in danger. That doesn’t necessarily cast aspersions on either of our nations, but facts are facts, and they should not be suppressed.

As a compromise, would you believe that maybe ONE person in all of Poland—just one—aided the Nazis? If so, it’s important to understand that it would be illegal in Poland to speak about it, even if you have proof. Somebody like you, a person confident enough to stand at a podium in City Hall and speak her mind—exercising her freedom of speech—could go to jail for talking about it. Even if she was wrong, does that seem right to you?

As far as the memorial goes, it is uniquely jarring, and by its own virtues, belongs in a venue where it has the potential to be more appropriately contemplated.

PSE&G probably stands to profit more by selling energy to charging station operators, instead of cutting themselves a discount on the rates and then making up the profits in the charging station business, where they have no unique expertise or competitve advantage.

If spending money on healthcare is the problem, why not prohibit smoking, even while off-duty? Why not turn away smokers who want to enlist? Smoking-related illnesses are well documented, so given the several hundred thousand smokers in the armed forces, the expense must be enormous.

But that’s stupid.

If an American has the desire, aptitude, ability, and discipline to be a soldier, sailor, pilot, or otherwise—and the Pentagon was already on board with the criteria and restrictions—they’re worth the money it takes to retain them, including their food, shelter, training, education, and health-care costs. (Oh, and their salaries, which practically come at an order-of-magnitude discount.)

This latest hissy-fit by the President couldn’t rationally have been about money, since there are obviously much lower hanging fruit. What happened—did he have a wild dream about a ladyboy? The sky’s the limit with what this guy reacts to.

Re: Developers break ground on Jersey City micro-units apartment building

It seemed so far fetched, but the building had no choice but to comply, or they wouldn't issue them a CO.


In terms of fire resistance, a window is just a hole in the wall. Commercial buildings often use water curtains (closely spaced sprinklers) or fire-rated glazing assemblies to protect openings in similar situations, but they’re very expensive solutions.

That was certainly crappy for the tenants, but the explanation was spot-on, not far-fetched.

What is the logic behind this? Would this also be the case if you had an apartment with one of those open kitchen / living room combinations?


In an emergency, the path of egress should probably not take people directly through a room where most home fires start.

A smart phone is not intended, suitable, or reliable enough for this sort of professional use, especially considering the importance and sensitivity of the data that needs to be collected.

Whether officials were acting responsibly when they granted alcohol licenses to binge-drinking factories that cater to amateurs, the City should already have  had a plan and budget to deal with the attention that sticking its ass in the air was going to bring.

Or maybe I'm being too harsh on the kids... in City Hall.

The wasteful, inhumane, and ecologically destructive system that lets massive fast-food chains exist and spread throughout the world is probably one of the worst things our species has ever accomplished. And all for the sake of mostly awful food—isn't that a kicker?

Here's a good article on the subject I read the other day. Many of these "progressives" aren't worried that Trump is a Hitler type figure. They subconsciously want that to avoid admitting they were as wrong as can be.

http://blog.dilbert.com/post/15654031 ... h-for-especially-if-it-is


Hitler is simply the most infamous point of reference in terms of Mr. Trump's tendencies. The comparison is unavoidable, and many people who want to demonize him are going to use that reference. They're probably distracting themselves with an irrational projection as well, if that suits you. I have plenty of hope that Trump and Hitler will never share any important Wikipedia entries.

Still, along with many past world leaders that history reflects poorly upon, Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler share an unmistakable appeal to the dark side of human nature. Thanks to pioneers like Freud and Jung, we know quite a bit about this aspect of the unconscious, our shadow, despite its entire purpose of remaining hidden. We didn't see Mr. Trump's victory coming, and in hindsight that makes sense, but at least now our dirty secret is out.

Fact is, it's very difficult for a conservative not to be exposed to the liberal viewpoint nowadays. It's crammed down everybody's throat via most mass media outlets. "Progressives" are far more likely to be victim to echo chambers because they simply aren't exposed to dissenting viewpoints.


When a serial teller of raging falsehoods angrily refers to journalists as “liars” on a regular basis, psychology has a term for that behavior whether you like it or not. Everybody is familiar with the pot calling the kettle black, but the fascinating part is understanding WHY the pot has such a conspicuous problem with the kettle.

It's probably one of the most fascinating subjects that you don't want to know anything about.
