Just seeing this on NextDoor. Senior Freeze Program. I wouldn't qualify, but it could help some seniors who have all this equity, but refuse to tap into it.

It has over 13,000 properties listed so far... Any idea what the total number should be around once it is all said and done?


Sure is taking them a while to post Ogden Ave LOL. Unless I missed it.


This looks like the same spread sheet that was posted earlier.

I wonder what the likelihood is that some JC politicians are browsing this forum.
Have any newspaper articles appeared that anyone can point out that explore the disruption in the lives
of the aged? These people only seek to live out their lives in the buildings and neighborhoods to which they've become accustomed. They've been good citizens, obeyed the laws, raised their families to do the same, and are now faced with the hardships of ridiculously high tax rates which make no sense whatever. The politicians of New Jersey should be ashamed for abandoning these seniors in the waning years of their lives.
And for those of you who offer economic reasoning and proffer same solutions to the panic in the lives of these citizens, remember: "what goes around comes around".


I can't take credit for this idea, but I will pose the question to Rich. Rich, if you feel so bad for all the seniors who now sit on 1+million dollar homes, I'll make a deal with you. You round up all the people you claim are going to be forced out of their homes. Bring them to me, and I will buy their homes/land for what they originally paid for it. I will let them live out their remaining years in their home, and they can continue to pay the same taxes to me, I'll make up the difference, and everyone wins. Of course, I get to keep the land/property once the current resident passes away.

Deal?

The free ride is over now people. If you didn't prepare for this inevitable bomb, that's on you.

The market won't collapse, it will go though a little turbulence as people adjust to the reality of what they should have been paying in taxes.

To the people who were paying seriously under assessed taxes, what did you think was going to happen? I mean, you had to know your 2.5M house was not really supposed to be assesed at 200k, right?

I think I saw this on WPIX news the other day, but given the size of the Leonia police dept, and the many grey areas already mentioned, this is not really going to be enforced in any real way. This was done mainly so GPS like Waze or Google will now reroute people around the neighborhoods since the software now sees the streets as closed.

R/C Car Racing in JC?

Anyone into racing R/C cars in JC? I used to do a lot of electric on and off road, but it's been awhile. Looking to see if there is any interest since it's always better to race with other people.

I have had mixed experience with using the app and the response from the city. I have had good luck with potholes getting filled, tree trimming, and trash clogging sewers. Anything else seems to get closed pretty quick. Hopefully the data from reports is being collected so city resources can be allocated to the areas that need it.

Re: Gringos Taqueria - Coles Street

Tried Gringos for the first time on Saturday evening. We go there are around 6:30pm. The outside area was pretty full, and so was the dinning room. I was prepared for a wait, but to my surprise I was seated right away. Ordered drinks pretty quickly, and some chips w/ salsa and guacamole for the table. Chips came quickly, and were decent. Drink were okay. Not the best margarita I have ever had, but I have had far worse. We ordered the Al Pastor, Holy Mole, and Pig Out tacos. I like the Al Pastor and Pig Out the best.

Overall it was a good experience except for the service. I know the service in DTJC can leave one wishing for more; especially given our proximity to NYC, but this was one of the worst experiences yet. Our waitress seemed to be to busy chatting with her friends behind the bar than to server her tables.

Now we have the full transcript of Trump's phone calls with Mexican President Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Turnbull.

Trump admits he is in a tough spot, politically, with all those chants of making Mexico pay for his border wall. He sounds like a child asking Mexican President Nieto not to say that "Mexico will not pay for the wall".

When Trump has Prime Minister Turnbull on the phone, Trump doesn't seem to understand the details of this agreement between the US and Australia; even after Prime Minister Turnbull tries to explain it several times. All he can think about is himself and how he will look to his supporters.

I guess, at the end of the day, how Trump looks to his supporters is all he cares about. Then again, it is par for the course for politicians to only care about their base. I guess Trump is just like the rest of the politicians in the swamp after all.

After giving Obama so much shite for golfing and vacations, and after recommending in his his 2004 book Trump: Think Like a Billionaire, "Don't take vacations. What's the point? If you’re not enjoying your work, you’re in the wrong job.", the AP is reporting that Trump is getting ready to take a 17 day vacation at his private golf club in Jersey. Not to mention his January interview with the Times of London where he said "Who wants to leave the White House to go to some other place and be away on a vacation? The White House is very special, there’s so much work to be done, I’m not gonna be leaving much — I mean a lot of work to be done — I’m gonna be in there working, doing what I’m supposed to be doing — but who wants to leave the White House?"

I don't blame the guy for wanting to take a break, but does he have to be so hypocritical? It's all just fuel for Reddit anyway.

I think I have shown that cost is not the main issue here, despite what Trump said in his tweets. The estimated cost to provide the hormones and surgery is peanuts when put into the context of the overall military budget.

It is one of the main parts of a recruiter's job to weed out people that would be a burden for the military. The last thing they want to do is spend hundreds of thousands of dollars training someone, only for them to quit or be discharged.

Regarding your comments about there being no room for a reasonable middle ground; given the current political climate I tend to lean towards agreement with your point. There is also a larger part of me that still hopes that we can get back to a point of reasonable compromise. Otherwise, I think the road we are on now leads us to not getting anything bipartisan done.

It can be a barrier to enlistment, but it's usually taken on a case by case basis. There are plenty of people in the military on daily meds. They just need to be prescribed by a military doctor.

I think you may have missed the part where I said "Being accepted by the military is not a civil right, but not being discriminated against based on your sexual orientation is." I was referring to ones civil rights in general, not in terms of acceptance into the military, but I can see how my statement could be misconstrued.

At least we can agree that is not a violation of anyone's civil rights to not give someone a free sex change operation. I just think it's a dick move to ban them from serving in general. Especially since they willingly signed up to serve. Would you be okay with allowing transgendered people to serve if the government didn't offer them surgery?

The army certainly can discriminate against you based on your sexual orientation. Why do you think gays were officially banned from the military up through the end of Obama's term?

That was the policy previously, but that has changed and is no longer the case. The policy was updated to reflect the current demographics of people wanting to serve their country. Rightly so, as sexual orientation as no bearing on your ability to fight.

JCMan8 wrote:
Second, trans people are being rejected on the basis of gender dysphoria, an official mental illness, and not a sexual orientation.

Not according to Trump's statement. According to Trump, "the military needs to be focused on overwhelming and decisive victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail." No mention of gender dysphoria there. I also find it a little funny that it's okay for Uncle Sam to spend 84 million on erectile dysfunction medication for current and former service members, but the estimated 8.4 million is too much and needs to be cut. Why not also make cuts to that program if the military is that strapped for cash. Oh wait...this is a political move and has nothing to do with saving any money or mental health.

JCMan8 wrote:
Third, the sex change procedures were free in the sense that the taxpayer was paying for them, not the person who wanted the procedure.

This is true, but I would argue the the service member is paying the country back through their service.

And I don't share the same definition of "progress" as you. For example, I don't think taxpayer funded sex changes (Obama ordered for all trans soldiers) is progress.

In fact, I think it is bizarre and regressive that trans people could have signed up for the army and received a free sex change. Happy Obama's nuttery was rolled back.


Correct. Being accepted by the military is not a civil right, but not being discriminated against based on your sexual orientation is. I'm guessing you haven't served in the military if you think a sex change operation is free. Yes the individual service member would work with their chain of command and doctors to formulate a plan that works best for the military and the service member, and that may involve a sex change operation, but the service member is hardly getting that free of charge.

I doubt many people would willingly put their lives on the line for a "free" operation. People join the military because of a sense of duty to serve and protect their country. The mission always comes first, even for someone that is trans.

Besides, the military just said they are going keep letting trans people serve with honor and respect until there are new directives issued. Who would have thought tweeting something doesn't count?
