Re: A new N.J. bar’s dress code was called racist. The owner says it was ‘an oversight.’

Reread the article... the article said (and I'm simplifying) "Some people called the policy racist." The writer of the article didn't say it was racist, I'll repeat, they said "Some people called the policy racist."

Here's the actual text of the article... "The references to oversized jewelry, low and belt-less pants, and head gear, particularly, were seen by some as racially specific and led a number of patrons to take to social media to question if the bar is expressly attempting to keep patrons of color out of the premises."

You assume the press is liberal... makes you a conservative... the "press" is middle of the road.


The only ones making a big "national" deal out of this local story is the "liberal press". In your citation, the writer gets to explain the "subliminal racism" in the poster... while other liberal press claim it is "overt racism" So what exactly is it? Kinda like picking between global warming or climate change.

WTC ... talk about the literal "white elephant"... they have dimmed the lights in the building because some genius finally figured out that white is a difficult color to keep clean. Particularly in winter. Consequently people are falling down the steps to the PATH because they not seeing steps or not using the handrails which were installed long after it opened, for obvious safety reasons. And it leaks? LOL

That area is essentially dead space... between the ramp on the left of the photo and to the right (out of frame) are the side entry steps to the building, not to mention a few grown trees. No pedestrian would walk that space next to the building, because the clear obvious walkway is in the foreground.

You would have a better argument on the York Street side because they generally park opposite and parallel to the one way direction which means they need to backout on the sidewalk by the exit ramp or do a Y Turn on a very narrow sidewalk to face the correct direction and exit via ramp. Sometimes they are USPS cars looking at the windshield placards.

Either way, the real issue is that the USPS employee was being a real jerk to pedestrians and it might be more effective to speak with the Postmaster.

I have never had an issue with them parking on the sidewalk... they are generally pretty courteous stopping for pedestrians as the enter the loading dock area from Montgomery. Or moving cars from that sidewalk to Montgomery.

I have noticed over last week there have been a couple of large trucks pulled right up to the marked/painted crosswalk on Washington & York. Need to be careful walking out from behind them to cross because you won't be seen by speeding drivers on Washington Street. That will only get worse as the snow piles up.

Parking the trucks has always been a problem in that area and I am sure there are some old threads about this issue. Sorry to hear you had a run with a jerk on the sidewalk.

Is there any data publicly available of how many residents of these abated high rises actually send their kids to the JC public schools?


I don't think you will find any thoroughly reliable information or stats on this, just anecdotal information put forth by some people to try and advance and buttress their points.

From my observations from living in the area is that there is definitely a sizable amount of couples with babies or toddlers but very few with school-age kids. In my own building there is only ONE apartment with a school-age kid (that's one apartment out of ~110) and I do think the kid attends a public school. Going by anecdotal information, which seems to jive with what one can observe, it seems like a good amount of the Newport apartments are roommate setups with 3 or 4 people sharing small spaces. The private daycares and preK private schools in our neighborhood (PAD) are seemingly very busy. Overall, I don't see or believe there are many young families living in these so called luxury high rises with school-age kids attending the JCPS system.


The young singles / married folks I know from the neighborhood generally moved when their toddlers grew to school age... or they put them in a private school.

Have to say there are a lot of kids at the PS at the intersection of Grand and Washington. Also a number of school buses in the morning. I see lots of walkers (generally look to be with grand parents) No idea how the kids are selected to go to the school. Hopefully more efficient that voting precincts assignments.

Can't wait to hear Hillary's endorsement of Senator Bob. Especially after the bangup job she she did defending her husband against the 22 year old intern grown woman who abused her free access to the President and used her feminine Delilah like charms to seduce him in the Oval Office.

"Bob is especially proud of his record working with young women. His fatherly like mentoring abilities transcend borders, ethnicity and age. And Bob is willing to go that extra mile to provide the kind of support.... that well, shucks... money just can't buy."

Have to call BS on your logic. You really believe that the democrats, or republicans for that matter, are honestly capable of doing anything to reprimand never mind impeach an "esteemed colleague"

Why do you think the known woman beating democrat first muslim congressman ellison from MN wants to send the charges to the House Ethics Committee to be reviewed We do not have term limits, just the vote to set things right.

Re: New Vote-By-Mail Law Raises Concerns Over Confusion

The quote in my original post was from the original article about confusion in the new vote by mail law. No idea what else you read into my witty observation that led you to believe that it was "all over the place".

All I did was cite a voter fraud risk (the same one your WaPo expert identified) that had no control if the counties intend to send out mail ballots in perpetuity. Of course no chance of that happening here in Hudson County

By "joking" (I'm guessing you were trying to be funny) that democrats were likely to be happy with perpetual write-in ballots you must be inferring that from historical patterns that relied on in-person vote fraud because, to my knowledge, there have been no legitimate studies or investigations into mail-in vote fraud such that a pattern could be established that a certain type of voter was more prone to commit write-in vote fraud.

Because you would have needed to make that inference, you clearly believe in the 31 in a billion Santa Claus.

And then, the cherry on this shit sundae was something you burped about immigration. Really not your finest work.

Apparently you did not read your own source.... note the comment about Mail-in-ballot fraud... exactly what I was commenting about.

"This sort of misdirection is pretty common, actually. Election fraud happens. But ID laws are not aimed at the fraud you’ll actually hear about. Most current ID laws (Wisconsin is a rare exception) aren’t designed to stop fraud with absentee ballots (indeed, laws requiring ID at the polls push more people into the absentee system, where there are plenty of real dangers). Or vote buying. Or coercion. Or fake registration forms. Or voting from the wrong address. Or ballot box stuffing by officials in on the scam. In the 243-page document that Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel filed on Monday with evidence of allegedly illegal votes in the Mississippi Republican primary, there were no allegations of the kind of fraud that ID can stop."

Ah yes, voter fraud. That perennial non-problem in search of a "solution". 31 incidents per 1 billion votes cast.

Keep banging that broken drum! Clearly it works, because it continues to gain enough traction to enable voter suppression laws to flourish anywhere the GOP is in control.

I am always amused when non-Catholics try to dictate to Catholics changes in their doctrine or dogma that they say will improve the Church they do not attend. Particularly when it comes to Catholics dealing with the criminal activities within their own church. I liken it to democrats “helping” republicans improve their image and become a better republican party.

I am not dismissing the right of anyone to publicly express an opinion or criticize any institution. At times I would love to sarcastically dismiss their opinions by saying “You wouldn’t understand, it’s a Catholic thing” but I find the use of that colloquial phrase offensive to any rationally thinking person. Arresting and prosecuting these men is paramount… all the other steps to cleanse the Church is the responsibility of the Catholic laity because the clergy have failed us repeatedly. And all the clergy participating in the moral outrage need to go… especially those covering it up.

The starting point is back to basics with the orthodox church doctrine… laity can have all the public discourse they want, but if they are ultimately not happy with the church, they need to consider leaving. This is the schism this scandal has created… and it ultimately comes down to one’s own conscience and relationship with God. All this coming from a “lapsed Catholic”.

Not sure why so many people are sensitive about discussing grown gay man / teen boy sex seduction stories in the priesthood... Hollywood just celebrated this activity with last year's "Call Me By Your Name", nominating it with best picture, plus other minor awards. The irony was this film flying quietly below the radar while the fallout from Harvey "Winestain" sex assaults on young teen woman actresses was raging. A priest or research assistant? One person's grooming is another's sex assualt. The pool/bathing suit picture of McCarrick with his hand around the waist of his teenage boy victim was creepy. That was not a Pedo Thing. And it would have been just as creepy with a teenage girl.
