I hate to have to break it to you, but there's more to both JC and Grand St than Downtown. That section is up by Arlington Park. The plan as described sounds very much like the changes to Observer Highway in Hoboken east of Marin. Wasn't the end of the world, but I think there's more traffic on Grand.


Gezz... No problem, did not mean to make you answer my simple question about the photo location with such a whiny smug response.

And thanks for the geography lesson, it is nice to know there is life beyond the pale of the turnpike extension.


It's also clear you don't know what "beyond the pale" means.

Now it's just going to sit there, slowly crumbling. I'm all for historic preservation, but some buildings are just too far gone to keep.


You buy the building and then buy the zoning, exceptions, etc. you need. Or knock it down in the middle of the night and dare the city to do something about it...

This conversation is about if a decline of the # of millionaires in NJ will have a fiscal impact on the State, so it is relevant that the top 1% of earners pay 43% of NJ's income taxes because a small drop in the high-earner population will have a disproportionate fiscal effect.

This is a back of the envelope estimate, but if the number of filers in NJ with $1 million or more in income fell by only 1,000 , it would be a loss of at least $100 million in income taxes, since those $1 million income people would pay (at least) an average $100,000 in income taxes each.

$100,000 x 1,000 = $100 million

We aren't talking about the "fairness" by progressive definition of the NJ tax code, where paying 43% of income taxes might be construed as "unfair" if the top 1% possesses more than 43% of the state's income.

However, the top 1% in NJ doesn't earn 43% of the money. I don't have the number, but it's a little less than that.


This conversation is about people with assets in excess of $1 million. You're confusing net worth with income. People with $1 million in assets (e.g. someone who owns a 2br condo in 77 Hudson or Crystal Pointe) typically makes far less than $1 million per year.

No one is saying "get rid of it." Just move it 200 feet to an equally prominent space that will be accompanied by additional parks.

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

I read it. The mistake I probably made was I perhaps drew the wrong conclusion from your all over the place and largely unrelated to the topic post. Maybe I misunderstood your "point".

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.

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.

If we take Mao's claim on its face, we would all be okay with priests pursuing 14 and 15 year old girls because it would be neither pedophelia nor homosexual. That's insane - and we have laws that prevent that.

It's not an orientation issue - the church may wish to frame it that way, knowing the Yvonne's of the world will eat that shit up and not depart the flock, but that doesn't make it true.

Not at all. It's a huge problem and I don't think I said anything that would indicate otherwise.

And for the record - to your initial post - the term "Income sorting" isn't "setting the trend". It's acknowledging it.

Re: Income Sorting

The premise is wrong on its face. People aren't "sorting" and poorer people aren't moving to Detroit or Cleveland, as the article suggests. One merely needs to look at the long term population trends in those cities to know that.

People go where opportunity lies. As Brewster points out, the industries in dynamic, coastal cities are growing and tend to demand a highly educated workforce. If there is any "sorting" going on, I'd argue it's driven by education. People from areas in decline with high levels of education are more easily able to seek better opportunities elsewhere. The less educated often get left behind.

Expensive housing is a function of this growth, not an additional problem (as the article argues.)

Funny enough, I've written a couple books on business.

In fact, the customer isn't always right. Sometimes the customer is an asshole and you have to tell him to get out of your store because he's either disrupting the experience of others or making unreasonable demands.

More to the point, this is where your analogy leaves the tracks. A government isn't a business. It has many, many more constituencies than a business and its interests are far more varied. And trade surpluses and deficits are far more complicated than Tweety McDooosh seems to fathom.

Governing by bromides, while often pleasing, really isn't effective.

That said, carry on. Enjoy your day in the sun.

My eyes hurt reading this. You start off by saying the US is getting a raw deal ("losing ground to 'foriegn' countries in trade"), which points to the fact that we sell less than we buy in our trade with these countries (seemingly a bad thing, to you). You finish by saying that because we buy the most we are the most important.

So... once the trade imbalances are 'solved" you will then advocate for a diminished american voice on world trade?

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.

Re: JC Public Schools is short $70 million
#26
Home away from home
Home away from home


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.
