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.

Re: Our Lady of Czestochowa Downtown Sex Abuse...

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.

You do understand that nothing has really changed, right? The council could still decide to move forward with this by putting it up for a referendum. I hope they do.


Wasn't a referendum vote the objective outside of keeping the monument in place? Clearly the anti-move people had already lost to Fulop and the CC. We need a local issue draw out the mid-term election voters in November.

The only state that did not include a home growing provision was Washington state, and if you look into it, the people in the state are now having to contact their elected officials to try to get on board with a home growing provision. NJ doesn't want a home grow provision because they want everyone to buy marijuana from the state. They keep saying this is for racial justice, but I think it would be more just of them to not be so transparently greedy. Many minorities are too poor to have a car to drive to a dispensary let alone have enough money to spend on overtaxed marijuana. If this is really about racial justice, they should prove it and provide the masses with a sensible home grow provision like Vermont. Two mature female plants in flowering at any time, and six plants total.


Didn't know about WA. But this "overtaxed" is overblown. If an $8 gram has $2 tax, do you really think that's so awful? Booze is similarly taxed and no one is hysterical. The dispensary limiting IS a big deal. If you have to drive an hour, or spend hours on public transit to reach the nearest dispensary, that's deliberate hardship.


Please... does anyone really believe the state will make it difficult to purchase legal weed? That type of restriction would defeat the purpose of making it legal for their constituents. As some one said earlier, high taxes and inaccessibility will only create a booming underground market.

Snoop Dogg’s Fourth of July performance enrages NJ parents

By Elana Fishman July 5, 2018 | 12:57pm


Snoop Dogg’s headlining performance at Wednesday’s Jersey City Fourth of July Experience went into D-O-double-overtime, infuriating parents whose small children just wanted to see the fireworks.

The 46-year-old rap legend was scheduled to take the stage at 8:30 p.m., according to Jersey City’s Office of Cultural Affairs, and wrap up by 9:20 p.m., with the fireworks display slated to begin immediately following his performance.

But Snoop’s set, which included hits like “Gin and Juice” and “The Next Episode,” started nearly an hour late. It also lasted longer than planned, due to an appearance by surprise guest Akon.

By the time the fireworks finally started at around 10:15 p.m., many impatient parents had already headed home with their kids — but not before tweeting their disapproval at both the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper and Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.

“Epic fail tonight at @jerseycity waterfront,” one Twitter user wrote. “@SnoopDogg started late & pushed back the fireworks show. Thousands of JC parents & kids await fireworks. School night. The ppl of JC are super annoyed & bummed and r bailing. @StevenFulop ur residents are not ur biggest fan right now.”

Another user tweeted, “hey Mr. Mayor, half of our party and thousands of other little kids had to go home because the fireworks were so late due to Snoop Dogg?”

Fulop later addressed the scheduling snafu on Twitter, writing: “We do our best. That’s all we can do. I know after 5 years in this job that I can sadly never please everyone as sometimes issues surface. All in all I think people had a great time – it was a long day with lots to juggle.”

A Jersey City spokeswoman confirmed to Page Six that Snoop Dogg’s performance was the reason for the delayed fireworks display.

Page Six has reached out to Snoop’s rep for comment.

https://pagesix.com/2018/07/05/snoop-d ... ce-pisses-off-nj-parents/



Like I said earlier... why would anyone be surprised that a headlining rapper shows up late for a concert... whoever booked him is a real dope.

And if that comment by Fulop is accurate, it really demonstrates his inability to honestly assess a major screw up with a city sponsored event that had his name and face prominently displayed in the media campaign.

The main event was the fireworks not some egocentric rapper... or a mayor's statewide political asspirations.

Why would anybody think a rap concert would start on time @ 8:30? I am sure the producers knew that... an hour late is being very accomodating to a rap audience on a hot night.

I saw Lavarro twitter live.. it wasn't a video of the longest soundcheck ever but it was pretty apparent he was late. Jersey City should be thankful he even showed up.


Because it's that difficult to comunicate with the crowd, and give updates?

NB: PATH service will be suspended all weekend long for the WTC and Exchange Place stops. Service suspension starts at 11:59 PM Friday, and runs until 5 AM Monday.


The PATH experience is going to be interesting... saw them setting up a huge stage @ Exchange tonight... assume they will be checking lighting/sound later. All that at one choke point.

I have seen them shut down access to the platforms to prevent too many people on the platform. Assume by Saturday schedule they mean no direct access from Hoboken... everything goes to Grove.

Sounds weird, but how do you provide security checkpoints at Exchange Place Stop? Unless it is done @ Grove Station?

At least it will all be free so you don't have to pay for this experience

Way more likely it's just the rigidity of Union contracts and shit like that. Think about it, you'd be asking people to work on the 4th that would be working otherwise.


Could very well be a factor... it is just that in most cities/states hosting events like this, all the public agencies step up and increase service levels like providing extra train service... seems like a public safety issue to potentially let thousands linger after an event is over?

Of course NJ Transit did a great job during the Super Bowl hosting... wasn't it like 20000 people stuck in Secaucus Junction after people were encouraged to use public transportation?
