My parents are in Venice and we finally convinced them to leave last night. Modest deviations in course (much less than what has happened with the westward shift over the past 24-36 hours) could put the west coast at huge risk and even if Irma stays to the east there are likely to be widespread power outages - and who wants to deal with that?

Once you fall on your head on concrete, all bets are off. Yes, Mikey - people ride much faster than the pace of a walk. I honest to god had someone ride by me on a small motorcycle a few weeks ago. On a sidewalk. And not one of the motorized bicycles that you see everywhere now (I see those on the sidewalk on Grand, frequently). Here are three bike/pedestrian fatalities that happened on sidewalks and another very serious accident:

If you throw in a plan to lock up adults riding bikes on sidewalks, I'd vote for you for mayor.

Me too. The car culture in JC is "anything goes" because they know there's simply no enforcement. Use a turn lane to skip all that traffic going straight? No problem. Right on red forcing the oncoming car to screech it's brakes? No problem. Ignoring stop signs? You know the answer.

And those are all the moving violations that you need actual expensive cops for. Parking flunkies are cheap by comparison, they "should" be able to shower the city with cash, but this being JC, somehow the JCPA struggles, with spotty enforcement that only reinforces the sense of lawlessness.

I could easily solve the whole illegal parking thing in JC. Give a parking flunky a smartphone and train them to photograph the car in a way leaving no doubt of the location and that they're stopped. Pic are instantly transmitted to an office worker who verifies the legitimacy of the infraction using geotagging and timestamp, and boom, out goes a ticket like the red light cams did. Too close to corner, in the lane at Newark, in a bike lane, double parked? Done.

Even better, how about an app for citizens to take the pics. Big brotherish? Sure. But we need relief from the inconsiderate pricks.

I'm talking about the Jersey City Loews - there have been studies that by the city and an independent firm that put the range between $20 million and $30 million to fully renovate the JC Loews. The cost of the Brooklyn renovation is irrelevant.

I don't know why you keep wildly speculating on the cost of renovation (you've said "$75 million" and "almost $100 million") when there have been actual studies, made public, by people who actually know what they are talking about, that range between $20 million and $30 million.

The city should pay to restore the Loew's and/or utilize legitimate and equitable public/private partnerships. But the first dollar should not go into that place until the day after the lease is up and the FOL are no longer the beneficiaries.

As opposed to low-price schlock that virtually no one attends? I'll take the restoration. And you are being overly simplistic assigning an one-price-fits-all to things - some shows would be expensive, others (particularly community run events) would be much less so. You claim to be a free markets guy - what could be better than that?

The city never really understood what it was doing nor what it was up against. As a result, we'll be stuck in this nowhere for years to come - not enough money to properly restore and renovate (so no ability to book big acts and earn your way out of the hole) and people running the thing who believe it's their own little playhouse, either clueless or indifferent to what the broader public (i.e. taxpayers, who are subsidizing their clubhouse) want.

Sigh. Jersey City. It could be something. But it isn't.

Fox News has created a generation of people who think they are stalwart but are actually fearful ninnies. Many of them are gun and "Law and Order" nuts yet know nothing. It's no accident that out of approximately 33,000 gun deaths a year, 2/3 are self-inflicted. The fear and neurosis catches up with them and they are not equipped to act like adults and get help. How many of the right wing rubes on this site would have just gone in guns blazing on this innocent kid on the PATH train?

Strange how people equate guns with strength. They are really emblems of fear. People who are so scared of the world they can't walk through it without something that can kill off anything they perceive as a threat. That is the ultimate snowflake.

Give me a break, do you want to break down every cost for every POTUS and their families?

Michelle is god knows where getting protection, as are both kids, one in DC and the other in NY.


Jesus Christ, Mary Pat - do you even have the ability to critique information as you take it in or is it just a straight mainlining of Hannity, Rush and the Dooce?

No. There isn't only one hotel in Tahiti. $2,000 a night? No. There are many, many for far less - the InterContinental is showing up on Trip Advisor, for instance, for $270 per night. This is the same asinine shit that led to a bunch of bobble heads running around saying Obama's trip to India cost $2 billion. That was absurd on its face - if you stopped and thought about math - m-a-t-h - for like three seconds, you'd realize that unless they were sleeping with blankets that were stuffed with ten million dollar bills, it would be impossible to spend $2 billion. But thinking isn't much at a premium these days...

Spoken like an ignoramus who never actually read the executive order he has such a strong opinion about.


Breathe, Papi. Clearly I've struck a raw nerve - relax. However, I can't help noticing your selective use of the bolding.... You "forgot" the key word - "specific".

spe·cif·ic
sp??sifik/Submit
adjective
1. clearly defined or identified. "increasing the electricity supply only until it met specific development needs"
synonyms: particular, specified, fixed, set, determined, distinct, definite; More
2. BIOLOGY relating to or connected with species or a species.

I'll ask, with no expectation of compliance, for you to re-read the order. Point to one specific (non-general, non-subjective, non-opinion) threat in that order. You won't. You can't, but more to the point, you won't. You'll fulminate. You'll deflect. All the while getting more aroused by the attention. So after finishing here, the floor's all yours. I';

Before going, I'll give you what will undoubtedly serve as the fodder for today's chubby - there was no Iraq ban in 2011. There was a considerable slowdown due to implementation of stricter vetting procedures - the very thing you claim to want.

There was a specific threat tied to the 2011 action: The “Kentucky case” in May 2011 in which two Iraqis were arrested and faced federal terrorism charges after officials discovered from an informant that Waad Ramadan Alwan, before he had been granted asylum in the United States, had constructed improvised roadside bombs in Iraq. The FBI, after examining fragments from thousands of bomb parts, found Alwan’s fingerprints on a cordless phone that had been wired to detonate an improvised bomb in 2005.

Second, the Obama administration never said it had a policy to halt all applications. Things slowed down considerably but it was never the intent of the administration, nor proclamation, to invoke a ban - consistent with what transpired.

Finally, Obama’s policy did not prevent all citizens of that country, including green-card holders, from traveling to the United States. Trump’s initial policy, as implemented, was far more sweeping.

Separately - what's with your repeated use of "echo chamber"? The conservatives invented it and have used it to great success over the past several decades. Own it. Celebrate it as the effective tool it's become! When did the right adopt the "am not, you are" approach to debate, which was elevated to new heights in Clinton/Trump II (or was it III? I forget) with the memorable "No! You're the puppet"?

I am heartened though by the fact that when you look at the thousands of Trump related posts (for and against) on JCList, it's really fewer than a dozen people who make all the pro Trump noise. Why is that? And why do they care? Government at the moment is clearly aligned in their favor - why not get on with advancing their agenda and celebrate their "successes"? Why do they care so much what we "libtards" and "whiny losers" and our "dishonest media" and/or "facts" and/or "science" have to say?

I'll know this "movement" is real when clowns like you and the JCman8-ball stop parroting every talking point that can be summed up as "liberals do this so the opposite must be good" and embrace the "disruption" for what it is and not what it isn't.

I'm not talking about that stuff - that's the usual everyday in the trenches stuff. I'm talking about how he feels he's had to become reflexively supportive of whatever Trump says/tweets - that's not the circa 2015/early 2016 Ryan.

When/if the Trump experiment implodes, the Ryan star will be in serious jeopardy, methinks.

That's politics - anyone who believes 100% of what any of these people says is naive. Why get so titillated?

More of the redirect - the election is over. No one is on this board saying anything about Clinton (or Johnson, Stein or Sanders). You broke it, you bought it, cowboy. Deal with it. When your boy continues to shit the bed five times a day, you're going to hear about it. Just be sure to be at the ready with clean sheets.

A sizable number of republicans in the house and senate (and legitimate conservative press) acknowledge that the order was either a mistake or horrendously implemented and overreach. But because you continue your one man jihad on a community message board - I guess you're right. Clearly you know things none of us (or them) know. We should all kneel to you.
