Has anyone checked with Warsaw? They seem to have a lot to say about all things pole-related in Jersey City.

Tip of Morris Canal Park makes too much sense for it to happen.

If Fulop played it right, approached the community in the right way, explained the rationale, I bet the move to that location would have been accepted. Not to the fuking median and not because I told you so, and certainly not because Poles are anti-semites or whatever slur he used.

He handled it in the worst possible way.

His conduct does not give me any confidence in Senator Fulop or whatever political office he will be aspiring to.

Boss Daddy Fulop and his cohorts is what Needs to GO !!

For Fulop's tweets to be "bigotry", the opinions he's opposed to would have to be legitimate in your view. You're down with holocaust denial and anti-semitism?

The one thing that keeps coming up in the various threads about property taxes is the fact that JC's rate (1.62%) is below state average. That has nothing to do with anything.

In a city, the advantages of density and efficiencies of scale would dictate a lower rate. Provision of services should be easier (think police, fire, trash pickup, etc.) given closer proximity, fuel costs should be lower, purchasing should be more effective since you are doing it in larger volumes, etc. Not saying it always works out that way, given politics, corruption and the like - but from a basic economics standpoint the math is pretty simple.

The state rate that gets tossed around is an average. Not everyone is average, for good reason.

I love debate and encountering other points of view. I hate uninformed points of view, even when I agree with the overall gist. I hate views that are expressed incoherently, along with views that are highly subjective and too heavily weighted with personal experience. Way too often, you check those boxes. You don't challenge anyone - certainly not me. You make noise.

It's anecdotal but a friend of mine is an owner downtown. his costs are going by more than $1000 a month and he doesn't know if he can pass it through to his tenant or not, legally.


So you don't know of anyone who has received a $1,000+ rent increase. Let's stick to facts, please.

Tap the breaks there, Chief. 60+%?? Not remotely likely.

What seems to be forgotten is for the chunk of the market that pays its taxes under PILOTs, nothing much has changed. Sure, the land tax is being raised astronomically (as much as ten times), but that is a very small piece of the overall bill. Rising interest rates and the new tax bill will soften the market, to be sure, but otherwise it's business as usual.

The Leonia thing? They mentioned a yellow sticker or similar that locals would get that would easily identify them to traffic cops.

You don't merit an argument based on merit. Tony TP summed it up quite well: your reflexive partisanship, endless whataboutism, the fanboy, slavish nature of your devotion to the people you vote for kind of doesn't leave a lot of room to debate much of anything.

I don't need KY jelly for whatever Murphy does, because I have very low expectations of him. I am repulsed that in a state of 8.5 million people, with a disproportionately large number of successful, well educated folks that we end up with someone as undistinguished and inexperienced as The Murph. I will gladly point out his shortcomings as Governor, as they appear - all politicians have them; they all fail in some way or other. You just hope those failings are manageable. I don't know why it is so hard for some people to recognize the limitations in the people they support. Unless you are on the payroll or involved intimately, it's not a reflection of you.

I laugh even harder when conservatives tell progressives to think for themselves. Nothing could be funnier than that. Nothing. The conservative echo chamber/talking points and the inability to question even the most bizarre claims are why we are in the mess we are in today.

Chris Christie could have been a 5'10" 108 pound super model and it wouldn't have changed the fact that he pursued so many policies that were bad for the state in the mistaken belief he could convince Iowa he is their kind of conservative. I don't disagree that the state is broken and it's only going to get worse before ... it keeps getting worse. There may be no realistic answers to solve NJ's biggest problems - that isn't Christie's fault. Posturing on immigration, guns, killing and/or underfunding infrastructure, etc. - those are his fault. For all the talk about uniting and courting Dems, he's left the state far more divided than when took office.

There are two train lines from Exchange Place to the WTC
During peak morning. Nwk to WTC scheduled frequency is 4 minutes. Hob to WTC is scheduled every 6 minutes
Train to WTC arrived at Exchange Place usually every 90 seconds to 3 minutes
A lot of people get off at Exchange Place making room to get on the train.
Don't have a delay on a train waiting to get to the Exchange Place platform

I always carried a ferry ticket with me in case something happened to PATH and no trains were going to the WTC.
Didn't have to wait on the ticket line before boarding a ferry.

Overall walking to Exchange Place didn't add more than a couple of minutes to my commute, and it was a more enjoyable commute. I liked the walk and don't mind the cold.


Shhhh.... please don't talk about it or the platform at Exchange Place will end up as bad as Grove.

Nobody is justifying a crime here. I didn't cite illegal immigration out of thin air. It's a fact that it exists because the market exists. You want to bury your head in the sand, do it at your own thread. Let me know what is really wrong with chain immigration and why the work of one criminal suddenly invalidates decades of accepted practices where millions of productive lives have been brought into this country. Keep talking about your tribal nonsense as if that has any bearing to the facts.


Exactly. The fact that Stillinjc has excited heights tells you all you need to know about their argument. These issues are incredibly complex and are going to require a lot more thought than it takes to jam a massive tax break through congress in days just so you can appease your donors and have a "win". They won't be solved by one "team" "winning" in this endless political super bowl we seem to be engaged in.

I'll even agree with part of Monroe's point - there do need to be limits on immigration. However, unless we are willing to start paying triple for our groceries, it is unrealistic to think you can just shut off well-established labor flows. Jargon and selective imagery is great for political rallies. Governing is much more difficult and requires thoughtful consideration.

That doesn't mean Law Enforcement with a few dirty cops is suddenly destroying America. Or maybe it is, and you are just picking and choosing what suits your politics. I like to think that America is much stronger than the weak dumpster-fire that you and Trump like to portray.

Just for shits, why don't you tell me when the USA didn't have chain immigration and tell us just how lovely and so much greater it is to now? Because that's what you want right? Eliminate chain immigration?


Even pointing out that the other 22 of 23 "chain" immigrants aren't criminals misses the point. Think in terms of the millions upon millions who have entered the country through this process - millions of productive people who helped build and grow the country. The miniscule number of people who are used as examples to support all sorts of draconian policies are statistically insignificant relative to the total population of "chain" immigrants.

Don't get dragged into selective and half-witted "whataboutism" arguments. It's just a deflection one uses when they have nothing of substance to support their misguided position.

Re: Hypocrite Solomon’s dirty push Poll
#28
Home away from home
Home away from home


I didn't read the article - I was responding to what the poster quoted, which usually is the point of emphasis. Granted, it's poorly written so maybe I misunderstood.

As for what is obvious - I would think being able to recognize that a vacationing lawyer enjoys economic advantage and privilege not available to the average person would be pretty simple.

To another point the article makes - the money Solomon has raised or contributed: wtf cares? The issue with political contributions isn't that they are made or necessarily how big they are, it's when they come from sources that would likely have expectations for something in return. Is it an advantage for Solomon that he has college roommates and aunts and uncles, et al who have done well and are willing to contribute to his campaign? Sure it is. Or that he comes from a family that seemingly has wealth (I don't know this to be the case firsthand) and he can fund a decent amount of his campaign himself? Of course. It would be great if money could be removed from politics - today, that isn't the world we live in. And if money has to be involved, I'd rather it come from someone in financial services in Chicago or a lawyer in Miami than a business or organization in Jersey City whose commercial interests are materially affected by the votes of a city council member they helped get elected.

I'll be curious to see the next ELEC reports for Symes - she's played the money card very well so far. She cried poverty, but knew that late money was coming. How much more will be an interesting tidbit to find out.

Just stop this nonsense.

Kudos to the writer -- "Whatever your feelings are between these two candidates - one thing is clear to me. Rebecca has spent time making Jersey City residents voices heard, and involved them publicly as contributors. Why hasn’t Solomon assimilated to our community in the same way or why doesn’t he have contributors publicly giving him money?"


Don't be ridiculous. "Unemployed" was a choice for her, not as though the mine closed and she's just scraping by. I am not making any judgment on her service or desire to contribute to the better good of the community but be honest - certain people come from backgrounds where going without a job for a period of time is an option (think Fulop in the year leading up to his first mayoral election.)

Lumping her in with people labeled as "working men and women" and as part of a discussion of people working for "living wages" is insulting to folks who actually live under those conditions (and not by choice.)
