I think that water long flowed under the bridge... interesting Osborne endorsement. I signed a Symes ballot petition on Newark Ave during summer. I did not know her, but felt the more candidates the better.

The clipboard person gave me the impression they were scrambling for signatures for the fast approaching filing deadline so I am somewhat surprised she appears to be in the forefront. At least judging by JCLIST threads.

Fulop has never represented us in Washington so yes he is a fresh face. Booker had never represented us in Washington before he won so yes he was also a fresh face.


Sorry.... I tend to view a "fresh face" as someone who brings new ideas to the table. All we get from these two are parroted tired old democrat talking points and support for failed policies.

As much as I dislike Senator Menendez for some of his positions and believe he is a leech for "free stuff", including DR hookers, I did like his position on Cuba. Seniority pays off in the Senate... and "fresh-face" Booker has a long way to go to achieve that status.

The NYT did a profile story a couple days ago on the senator's tribulations and trail.

After the web story release, readers commented on how with all the information being provided to the reader, some how there was on "over-sight" by the writer(s) and the editors identifying what political party the distinguished senator belonged too.

That was corrected later in the online version with an amended 4th paragraph. Not sure how they amended the printed story?

And I would like to thank ESPN for making me feel better by removing from the their broadcast booth, play by play announcer Robert Lee, who was scheduled for an afternoon University of Virginia football game in October.

So we have determined that haircuts and last names can be offensive and racist... even if Mr. Lee's heritage is Asian. I am so glad I dumped those ESPN fools.

My ill-informed friend Brewster, here are the results of the 1968 Presidential election.

Now I know progressives have a hard time understanding the US Presidential Election System but fortunately (for all of us) inside the attached Wiki URL, there is a United States map that correlates by color, each state Nixon, Humphrey and Wallace won.

The states won by the racist democrat, former governor of Alabama, George Wallace are ORANGE. To help even further, let's use the progressive's favorite way of determining presidential election winners, the popular vote.

You will see Nixon 43.4% beating Humphrey 42.4%, almost a dead heat? The remaining 13.5% went to George Wallace which is probably a good indicator of where the KKK/Neo-Nazi types that vote ended up.

Those 9 million popular racists votes did not end up with Nixon, another inconvenient fact for the progressive narrative. Do you really think a racist would not vote for Wallace?

Nixon's "southern strategy" was to pickup the remnants of a shattered democrat party and clearly he did not win 5 of those confederate states. It did help him with the dreaded "Electoral College" and that is all that really mattered. HRC can confirm that .

Amazing you haven't noticed the site is nearly dead.

The argument that Democrats were the party of racists is both true and the dumbest, most ignorant of political history argument possible. In a 2 party system any party is a coalition, and those coalitions shift. 50 years ago the coalition of progressives, labor, and southern racist conservatives broke and the latter joined the GOP in electing Nixon, in a move called "the southern strategy". Current fact, not ancient history.


Once again progressives fail to tell the whole truth... I am glad you agree with my the comments about the real history of the democrat party. My simple point is that if today's democrat socialist progressive communist block want to tear apart national institutions in search of racism... they should start by denouncing their own democrat party history instead of hiding it in shame.

That split you are talking about was the democrat party splintering over the Vietnam War they got us into. LBJ was shamed into quitting, Vice-Pres Humphrey was the compromise establishment choice after RFK was murdered along with liberal hopes of capturing the WH and "ending their war" The southern democrat racist vote went to George Wallace's 3rd Party and it continued for another decade.

All the Republicans did was develop a "southern strategy" to pick up the pieces of the shattered democrat party. Republicans had not won the south in a presidential election in 100 years... 1968 was the beginning of an atypical democrat presidential election screwup that would haunt them for years with bad candidates like McGovern, Carter, Dukakis etc.

In the 90's middle of the road WJC came along as a moderate democrat from the south with a plan to fix "it's the economy stupid". And he would not have won if it wasn't for Ross Perot and his charts.

Of course facts do not matter to progressives if they don't fit their anti-America narrative. Your little twisted narrow mind thinks I am defending Neo Nazis / KKK by what I wrote?

The insidious institution of slavery was a cancer on the soul of the country and we can see its legacy today. That was the genius of Lincoln who tried to temper the retributive attitude of his cabinet that wanted to punish the south after a bloody war that killed thousands of Americans.

Had Lincoln not been assassinated along with his vision for America's future, who knows how different the last 150 years may have been different.

According to the NYTimes, they're going, or at least being changed:

To busy New Yorkers walking briskly by, the mosaic inside a Times Square subway station might look like a Confederate flag.

It is not, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority assured riders on Friday. But less than a week after violence broke out at a Virginia rally, ostensibly over the planned removal of a statue of a Confederate general, officials are not taking any chances.

So in order to “avoid absolutely any confusion,” the M.T.A. said in a statement that it would modify the design to make it “absolutely crystal clear” that it does not depict a symbol of Southern defiance.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/18/nyr ... me=Watching-article-click



Probably better to incur this expense rather than risk $$$ of damage from antifa/leftist/anarchists targeting and destroying racist MTA stations.

So this is where these antifa/communist/radicals are headed??? Delegitimize the founding principles of this country, ignoring the positive legitimate and legal progress with laws like The Emancipation Proclamation and The 19th Amendment.

Beside their #1 choice, total Anarchy, the only way to install the political correctness orthodoxy in a free society is by installing totalitarian and fascist regimes like Venezuela/Cuba or theocracies like Iran or Indonesia that can control free speech and thought.

Outside of leftist street violence and physical intimidation of people with an opposite views.... what do they intend to put in place of the Constitution or our Bill of Rights that they abhor that they claim is founded on white supremacy???

At this point, they can't use the word govern.... because they only want to live in a Utopia via "benevolent" dictatorship... and we know how they ended up with Stalin and Mao.

It should be noted that the ONLY reason that the confederate flag is emblazoned on the Mississippi state flag is due to racism (History of Mississippi state flag). They didn't start with a flag containing a flag that represents secession.

The reality is, white supremacy in all its forms needs to be wiped out. There is no place for racism.

Did we leave up the statues of Saddam Hussein in Iraq because of "history"?
Did we leave up statues of King George when declared independence because of "history"?
Do the Germans have statues of Hitler up because of "history"?

Paying homage with a public statue to people that fought for the "right" to own other human beings is unacceptable. The place for such things would be museums notating the dark history and their repugnant cause.


"Did the USA lay down when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor", Yawn...

I think you need to exam all the state flags and emblems because there are many instances of dare I say "cultural appropriation"... you can start with Arizona and New Mexico.

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.


It's interesting question PSEG has a home consumer appliance division. They compete against private business for that multitude of home services.

If someone called them to modify an electrical outlet in their garage as a charging station, seems like they could do the work... or would home owner look for a private electrician. It can't be very complicated work.

So why wouldn't PSEG or even electric car manufacturers want in on this market... product distribution is already in place?



Why aren't PSEG and other entities jumping on this? Short sightedness... The local NA (PADNA) actually came out against the dedicated EV parking, because "the demand is not there". My argument is that that having dedicated EV parking ahead of demand is exactly how you get people to start adopting these technologies. Waiting for demand is silly. A few years ago, I mulled getting a Tesla Model S, but opted against it because there was no easy way to get it charged. Sadly, a few months after that decision, I moved into The ArtHouse, and the EV parking is right in front and it would have been a perfect solution. I honestly feel that installing and making available charging stations is the perfect way to encourage people to buy and use electric vehicles. During "peak" hours, the charging station is essentially a meter (you pay for each hour you are connected, regardless of energy usage) and during off peak hours you pay for the energy you consume to charge your vehicle.


I used to pickup electric Zip Cars there... great for neighborhood use, then they pulled them and left us with more high priced ridiculous suvs/minivans. The market issue you described is exactly where "cable tv" was 35 years ago. The providers only installed in dense populated neighborhoods for a quicker ROI on limited distribution network.

In this case distribution is there, demographics are right, seems logical for PSEG to give it a try. Am I right in assuming that there is a universal electric outlet common to the different electric model manufacturers?

I find it quite funny how delicate and pathetic the white males are on this message board. Seriously, colleges are predominantly white but a few people get a chance to better themselves and they cry foul. There has never been a white person denied a college education due to a minority getting into one school.

The fact that they decide to continue their racist agenda really shows how pathetic they are.

What happened to "picking yourself up by your boot straps" or "overcoming obstacles"? Seems that those slogans only apply to minorities.

Such a sad lot you people are. Your wittle feewings were hurt...


More progressive racial double talk ... "There has never been a white person denied a college education due to a minority getting into one school."

A "college education" and "college admission" are very carefully chosen phrases... there have been white people denied college admission to the college of their choice because of minority preferences, over academic performance.

This practice has been upheld by SCOTUS. If these little white racist students wanted to pick themselves up by their bootstraps, perhaps they should consider attending a HWCU?

If those white students were better students then they would have beaten out other white students in order to get into the school of their choice. They FAILED to do so. As such, they bemoan the fact that someone else gets a chance.

It's a pity that you fall into the category of protecting the poor wittle delicate snowflake that wasn't smart enough to get into the school they wanted to.

Additionally, I want to point out that Duke, Notre Dame and whole host of other schools provide college slots to white students that wouldn't have gotten into the school if it wasn't for their athletic ability. Many of those students wouldn't have been accepted to the school based on academics alone. Instead, they got there through athletics and barely passing the minimum academic requirements. Why aren't you bemoaning this policy?


A whole lot of "bemoaning" with you today... amazing how you make a whole series of assumptions, mix them with a sociological race theory to support your absolutely absurd contentions.

So if I try to connect your scattered dots, you believe that all white kids come from a 1% Lifestyle (progressive term not mine) and that there should be a white on white competion for college admission slots while minority students should be just admitted because their race is all they have to offer?

And somehow you think that legacy programs are inherently racist and exclusionary, so they to should be abolished to making the playing field more fair for students that want to compete on racial qualifications only.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/n ... ml?utm_term=.5bda83a940a4

And I am not even going to get going on your foolish NCAA comments about racial preferences for white athletes. It was an interesting choice of DIV1 Schools. I assume you picked Duke because of their excellent Men's Lacrosse Program?
