Re: Please clean up your dog poop...

Home away from home


It's hard to identify the offenders from their behavior on a website. Their behavior on the STREETS is regulated by law but the Jersey City policea are too lazy to enforce the law.

As far as recommending people pee on the doors of dog owners, are you HONESTLY going to tell me that any of this sanctimonious group of polluters, ANY at all, is picking up his dog's PISS?

So yes, I can generalize that dog owers are careless, thoughtless slobs unless they use only their OWN property for dog wastes, and in Jersey City the sidewalk slobs are the huge majority.

If the wastes are so innocuous why not keep the dogs in apartments 24/7 and clean up your own carpet with a paper bag and scrub brush.

I had 2 cats and there was never a bit of cat waste even one inch outside my bathroom...I didn't share with neighbors. What makes Fido and his lazy owners special?

I go with definition 14: the second VERBAL use of the word "curb."
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/curb

14. "to cause to keep near the curb: Curb your dog."


The purpose is so that people don't step in dogshit while they walk in the middle of the sidewalk.
Of course, I recognize that the phrase has been mangled to meaningless so that dog owners have an excuse to ignore it. Sort of like "Deficit's Don't Matter."

I assume some owners COULD interpret "No Dogs in the Garden" to mean that dogs are welcome to defecate in the garden. When you want to do what you are told not to, you can jump through lots of hoops to justify doing it.

Perhaps dogs could be fitted with those dung-catchers like they use on horses in Central Park?

I haven't rented for a while. Are they still adding that federal "terrorism surcharge" (or some such silliness) that was $3 a day or thereabouts on all rentals?

This predated that new state $5 charge.

P.S. The curb is NOT in "the middle" of the road but rather on either side.
Is "Curb Your Dog" REALLY that difficult to understand that it needs elaborate "explanation," perhpas with pictures for the illiterate?
Try to find the next "curb trained" dog...look REALLY hard.

Heck most dog owners don't take the time to teach their dogs even the simplest command and let their dogs do whatever they decide to do. If it's endless barking while tied up...well, to Hell with the neighbors. As for "No Dogs In the Garden?" What is so difficult about understanding that?
The "to Hell with the neighbors" seems to be a dog owner trait that is not shared by people with cats, parrots, ferrets, and tropical fish.

Dog owners consider themselves SPHESHULL: laws and common consideration do NOT pertain to them!

If a man urinates in the street its a crime. But yet society allows for thousands of gallons of canine urine to be splashed over the sidewalks of Jersey City daily.

Of course, in any state there are many who know how to drive and others who are a menace. I posted one websit and here's another, by GMAC.
Yes, your New York come off as the worst but NJ is right there in second awful place:
http://www.walletpop.com/blog/2010/05 ... vers-in-america-by-state/


So yes, I am sure there are good drivers in New Jersey (I was one before my parked car was destroyed by a drunk NJ cop) but I had LEARNED in Pennsylvania, but the internet has some honest evaluations of the average MISERABLE NJ driver, and miserable they are...on average.

There might be a reason behind the fact that NJ insurance rates are a JILLION dollars a year.


I learned the best way to drive in Jersey City was NOT to drive.

I think a grown man should take a shit on Vigilante's doorstoop.


After all, the fecal content is probably similar although the size might differ a tad.

Dogowners are generally inconsiderate and none of them knows or cares what CURB YOUR DOG means.
A corollary is that NO DOGS IN THE GARDEN looks like Sanskrit to them. They think landscaping is for canine urine.


I think the parallel thing to do might be for non-dog owners to start peeing on the doors of dog owners. Hopefully they have an inward sloping lintel.

I tried long and hard to figure out the tossing to and fro. Yesterday I was on a new car and the tossing was MISERABLE.
It was far worse for the standees...logical because the higher up you are from the pitch point the longer the swing.

I THINK the new cars have both weaker springs that allow left and right pitching to begin more readily and to increase their amplitude and I think this combines with weaker shock absorbers so the pitching isn't dampened. "So raockaby your naby with a nauseous melody."

I was really knocked around yesterday aftrernoon, stone sober and in the middle of the train. I almmost fell a couple times trying to read the Times...standing braced against a wall

And I agree with robojustin about the constant braking. I once had an uncle that loved to drive the family around to ANYWHERE but his driving style was to accelerate and then hit the brake in 5 second intervals. After 5 miles everyone in the car was sick.
If you cannot safely accelerate without the need to brake in 30 feelt DON'T ACDCELERATE, just roll.

I don't know how the train springs are set up but there is more of a noticeable forward dip on braking on the new cars relative to the old...that I rode for 30 years (both versions.) But that dip is NOTHING compared to the side to side swinging which is going to break bones.

Re: What ever happened to the Jersey City mayor's 2010 State of the City address?

I have lived through these mayors and started voting with Jordan (and campaigned my ass for him: he was the best Jersey City ever had, the Jimmy Carter of Jersey City, honest, forward thinking and ultimately ineffectual...becasue hJersey City is/was a dirty mobbed up town.)

Thomas Whelan 1963-1971 (Removed)

Charles K. Krieger Aug.-Nov. 1971 (Interim)

Paul Jordan M.D. 1971-1977

Thomas F.X. Smith 1977-1981

Gerald McCann 1981-1985

Anthony Cucci 1985-1989

Gerald McCann 1989-1992 (Removed)

Marilyn Roman Mar.-June 1992 (Interim)

Joseph Rakowski June - Nov. 1992

Bret Schundler Nov. 1992 - June 2001

Glenn Cunningham July 2001- May 2004

Jerramiah T. Healy May 2004 - present


Healy is in the top half. Efforts to remove him will be ineffectual and a silly waste of time. Some of these mayors were real pips, some went to jail. Two TRIED to move the city forward but met with tough economic sledding: Jordan and Cucci. And some were real SLIME: Schundler and McCann, and a bit of Tommy Smith.


For those new to the city, Healy is not too bad as Jersey City mayors go (a very loose standard._

Re: Time to buy?

Home away from home


A point maybe not precisely germaine but touched upon by FGJ:
If a homeowner is protected by law, moratorium on eviction, or whatever you want to call it and be allowed to continue to live in his home without making any further payments, why then should ANYONE be allowed to be evicted by a landlord or a court for non payment of rent.

Either you must pay for what you have bought or rented or you need not...there should not be two seperate sets of rules/laws/regulations.

Owners have not been blessed by God nor renters cursed by Satan. Instead we are here to be ruled by equitable laws.

So "saving homeowners" often translates to saving deadbeats who have taken hundreds of thousands out of equity in refinancing and are now crying crocodile tears.
"Save me from the evil banks who MADE me take out $200 thou for the Lambourghini. Now I'm under water."

Try Salt Lake City...if you as a pedestrian even make a MOTION towards the sidewalk in the middle of a block the traffic will come to a halt to allow you to cross if you choose.


Two faults of Jersey City drivers that are clearly spelled out in the drivers manual:
1. They do NOT know that a pedestrian has the right of way in a crosswalk ALWAYS as in ALWAYS, no matter the color of the light, the WALK/DON'T WALK sign, or the alignment of the planets...ALWAYS!
2. You must stop at a red light before making a right turn and you CANNOT do it if there is a pedestrian in the intersection.
These dickheads cannot reason that these laws are logical because a 200 pound man is no match for a 4000 pound car...not a fair fight.


I was crossing Washington Blvd in a crosswalk towards a cop on the opposite corner and a car flew in front of me at 30 mph making a right on red without even slowing down...the cop didn't bat an eye although the car went 90 degrees around him while he was looking at it, almost dusting me off.

Immigrants are people, immigrants have kids, immigrants pay taxes.
I know full well that immigration and their subsequent high childbearing accounts for a considerable portion of the U.S. population growth.

All that said, your statement about "ZERO OR NEGATIVE POPULATION GROWTH IN THE UNITED STATES" is the stupidest statement anyone will read this month. And I proved its stupidity conclusively and still you bray on.

Inability to recognize a mistake when it is conclusively proven to be so is a sign of severe personality disorder.

Do you STILL think the United States has a zero population growth? Did I make up the numbers I posted? Are you on medication? Have you eaten one too many teabags today?

A lesson you might learn from your first post is that sarcasm is fine, making a mistake is fine but making a sarcastic mistake looks REALLY dumb. Trying to obfuscate around the mistake by changing the subject with quibbles about truncated wiki entries loooks even dumber.

The correct grown-up response is: "Yes I made a mistake about zero population growth, U.S. population growth is indeed high."

Re: Governor Christie halts new train tunnel into Manhattan due to cost overun

Is New Jersey Transit structured the same way as the Port Authority in that either governor has unfettered full veto power.

Did the NJ legislature have any say in this?
Did they pass a bill authrorizing the expenditure that Christie vetoed?
I don't recall any publicity about assembly action?

How does Patterson feel about paying NY's third of the costs?

Or was the killing a result of CHristie's power of veto over Port Authority acitions and thus ITS third of the cost was killed by him unilaterally.

(Forgive the "thirds"...this is what I read but it seems the total involves four or even five thirds )


If so many people are clamoring to get into Manhattan, how come the once touted immense ferry services has turned into such a total dud?

I like to look out my window at a community garden down below.
Occasional scenario: dog takes a crap, owner looks left and right and if seeing nobody walks away ignoring the steaming pile.
Once I opened my window and yelled "You forgot to look UP, asshole."
He quickly walked away embarassed, but the shitpile remained.

Dog sales should be banned in the City.


And yes, tern and I seem to be the only two people in the city who know what "curb your dog" means. It does not mean shit and piss on sidewalks. And I have NEVER seen a properly curbed dog (and that's out of the 10,000 of them at Newport.)

Bunny,

For some, me included, a lot of your reasons for ownership are quite valid but what if the very real situtation of mortgae, taxes, insurance and maintenance are more than twice the cost of renting the identical same place?
That situation pertains in a lot of Jersey City.

Do you think the term is "Jersey Left," for a reason or just a random connection of two words. Just another sign of rude, impatient, me-first behavior. But they are very energy conscious because it is a rare NJ driver who wastes wattage on a turn signal.
Even the roads are designed by morons like those stupid dangerous traffic circles.

Those who think Jersey drivers are good drivers have never left the state and certainly never driven in inclement weather.

And oh my, the new immigrants, especially the women... They could fill HOURS on TOSH.O.

This site sums up the New Jersey Driver pretty well...see if you recognize yourself:

http://www.youmightbe.com/pages/new_jersey_driver.html

NJ drivers are are the rudest, most inconsiderate, and least capable drivers in the country...but I've never been to Alabama, Mississippi, and Alaska.

I'm a Pennsylvanian and I grew up with a phrase uttered by drivers universally. Whenever they saw someone friving like a moron the most damning phrase, derisively spoken, was "JERSEY DRIVER" usually accompanied by eyes looking upwards.

Maybe PATH could dig into its immense coffers and pay for a new tunnel tube. Yeah right!
(THat's my hysterically funny joke for the day!)

The United States cannot afford to build tunnels...it prefers to waste it's capital fighting endless wars instead to support its failing corporat power.

I am a progressive but I support Christie's call here. SOMEBODY must watch the checking account balance, whether it comes to tunnels under the Hudson or saving piles of rocks in Jersey City.

Throwing money at rich developers to do substandard work has gone on for far too long.

The United States cannot any longer afford to support its failing infrastructure. Wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia are just too pricey and if not fought, Exxon-Mobil and ROyal Dutch Shell, Halliburton and BLackwayer will have a few bad quarters.

Yes the Cheney Energy Task Force did a good job making sure that there were NO regulations on any energy company...all in the first two months of the Bush presidency, and the current congress and president are too frightened of big money to rewrite the regulations.

Gotta love the Guttenberg Planning Board, ruling that PAST gas explosions are not germaine to the subject of NEW gas lines. So only AFTER a pipeline has exploded can it be entered into evidence about its safety. THe people of the Galaxy have enough clout in Guttenberg to toss out the planning board by next week...they should do so.

Gosh, how appealing: squeezing a tiny housing complex in the little plot atop a gas line between the Galaxy (an AMAZING housing complex, BTW...sorry I didn't buy in) and a sewage treatment plant.
