It's not. I already explained his immigration proposal to you. It's to ban all immigration from countries with a proven history of terrorism. BTW, I'm still waiting for you to point to a section of the Constitution that prohibits this.

And your "point" has already been asked and answered. I'll copy and paste, since you don't seem to be processing what I'm saying:

And I fault the DNC and the family for exploiting their son's death for political purposes. Especially because they presented a highly misleading version of reality. You know, that pesky thing that keeps getting in the way of your emotional arguments.


He said Muslims? did he change is tune again because I can't keep up. If this is really his argument it should ban all immigration from Ireland, England, France, Germany, Israel, etc. Does he have a list?

I just can't connect with you at all on his comments about Army Capt. Humayun S.M. Khan's family. Their son died in combat fighting for our country. For Trump to attack the family is shameful, but he has a history of disrespecting Americans who serve their country. They were not forced to go on stage. They wanted to make their voice heard and they have that right. They had courage, their son had courage. Trump does not.

Please point to the section of the Constitution that says a President cannot establish a ban on immigration from countries with a proven history of terrorism. Remember, both Trump and I are talking about banning future immigration, not kicking out those who are already here.

Much like your emotional appeal about Muslims serving in the military, if you actually look for facts, you'll be embarrassed again. But I'll wait.

And I fault the DNC and the family for exploiting their son's death for political purposes. Especially because they presented a highly misleading version of reality. You know, that pesky thing that keeps getting in the way of your emotional arguments.


I said banning Muslims from military service and you said "he wouldn't have to ban that many". How would it be constitutional to ban one religion from volunteering from serving our country. Our immigration law allows US citizens to apply for family members to come to the country and achieve citizen status. How would it be constitutional to allow this for every other US family but not Muslim families.

I admit the there is a problem with radical Islam, but you can't favor one religion over another under our constitution.

The Catholic Church systematically covered up their own pedophiles. That is not a third party connection. That is direct to the top people of the Church.

Do you think the CNA is a more independent news source? Don't kid yourself.

I'm not even going to google search NAMBLA because I am fairly certain that is a pro pedophile group. To bring that up in a topic about LGBTQ shows where your head is at. That is like me insinuating that the Westboro Baptist Church represents your religious community. But your desire to connect gender identity with sex crime is off target. This pedophile organization has more in common with the Catholic Church.

There is no desire to weaken religious freedom. What we have seen in the last few years is a growing number of State laws and lawsuits designed to use religion as a tool for discrimination against the LGTB community. Yes, you will see pushback from those wanting to live in an America where all people are treated equal by not just the government, but by the licensed business in their community. You started with the cake baking issue, then the gazebo on the shore, followed by bathroom accommodations and now sexual reassignment. You are spinning out of control.

I hope it doesn't have to be me to bring the lawsuit. I'm not a 1 percenter and don't have unlimited time/money to fight the government.
No wonder 90% of people continue to do construction quietly without permits (or all permits, just getting a little bullshit one and then doing massive renos).


You started this thread by making some strong accusations based solely from anecdotal evidence. YOU SAID? "CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG?" Sorry if my response did not paint the picture you wanted to hear, but I provided you with what I have personally experienced and have learned from talking with my neighbors about their direct dealings with the Historic Department and you respond with personal insults.

So now your talking about being forced to keep lead pipes and lawsuits.

You only have to comply with the Historic Building department's rules when you are building. No one is going to knock on your door and force you to do restorations. Again, I have never heard of anyone being forced to keep or restore an INTERIOR historic characteristic feature. I believe that is the reason that you started this thread, correct? Sure, the building department will want to make sure you don't cut through a wall and hit an old gas line or make the building unstable, but they are not going to tell you you have to install wide plank pine floors, lead pipes, or dig a period correct outhouse in the back yard.

I went to the building department first for a water heater permit and they said that since I'm Historic I had to go to the Historic department first for all building permits. I guess the Building Department just needs Historic to sign off on any permits being issued in Historic neighborhoods. But that is not Dan's doing, it's the JC Building Dept.

In my opinion...
Our group of row of houses, most have been renovated in the past 15 years and it was Dan who made sure that they all worked well together with matching facades and historic colors. The result is a group of homes with great curb appeal. I often hear passers by commenting how they love our block and I think Dan had a lot to do with that.

Wouldn't you have to be the victim of 'abuse of power' to file such a claim? Not, "I heard from a guy?"

As someone living in a historic neighborhood with lots of renovation on the block I have never heard any complaints about Dan enforcing historic preservation on the interior of the home. In fact, neighbors doing renovations have told me only positive things about his visit. That said, when I went to get a permit to replace a water heater I was told by the building department to take it up to his office first because my home was historic. It was no big deal.

I've heard anecdotes of Dan Wriedon overreaching his duties and entering building/residences that have historic designations. It hasn't personally affected me (yet).

My understanding is that his responsibility is limited to the part of the facade that is visible from the street.
Is the above statement incorrect?

I had a lawyer friend of mine over from New York recently, and we did the usual, "I can't believe it, never heard of something like that" thing for a minute, and then he suggested I file a report for 'abuse of power' in Trenton, because likely the Jersey City government won't do anything because they've let it slide for about 12 years or so...?

Correct me if I'm wrong on any of the above; I hope to see some responses before the mod deletes. If it is within his purview, this is just an example of systematic overreach as opposed to individual overreach. Either way, I'd like to know.

I don't mind going to Trenton on the way to Philly on a weekday, and I doubt it would get any traction, but I'd at least like to have something down on paper.

JCMC changed their tune and won the contract second time around.

?In its most recent contract, JCMC has been charging the city $3.8 million a year for ambulance service over the last three years, but CarePoint/McCabe offered to pay the city for the contract.

The $2.6 million from CarePoint/McCabe would allow the city to pay for firefighters who act as first responders for any calls the new providers cannot respond to in time, according to city officials.?

JCMC wins contract to provide Jersey City emergency medical services

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... ncy_medical_services.html

.

PS - all before the one million dollar donation


Those articles unfortunately skip over the history of the prior JCMC contract and Fulop's involvement with it.

Prior to JCMC EMS charging Jersey City for ambulance service, JCMC had never charged a dime. So why was JCMC charging the City for EMS service over the past few years? Answer: JCMC was very close to closing its doors and was in financial distress. JCMC got millions of dollars from the state to restructure and update the public hospital. JCMC EMS was also going down. Since the City is legally bound to have a contracted EMS provider and there was no one other than JCMC interested the city had a tough choice to make. 1) create their own EMS provider from scratch or 2) help finance a restructuring and upgrade to JCMC EMS. The city chose the cheaper JCMC upgrade option. With Jersey City money JCMC EMS bought new ambulances and upgraded their dispatch headquarters. With these and other changes JCMC EMS turned their act around and became one of the most recognized EMS in the country in just a few years.

Here is an article about that:
http://www.jems.com/articles/print/vo ... ns-five-national-rec.html

Was it expensive? Yes, but we now have a great EMS and it would have been absolutely foolish to switch providers and throw that investment away. And it gets better? The City Council knew at the time that the expensive JCMC EMS contract was just for that one term and that it would go back to zero with the next. In fact Fulop was on the Council at the time and he voted YES for that JCMC EMS contract. So for him to publicly rag on JCMC for their last contract like it was a surprise that someone could do it for free was hot stink BS. He was there, he was informed and he was for it.

In addition, as the article explains, McCabe has been charging Bayonne $800,000 per year. When the Mayor of Bayonne heard that McCabe was not only going to provide free service, but also provide a kickback he was not happy. Their new contract is now free.

------------------------

As for the 2.6 million per year reimbursement CarePoint/McCabe was offering. That part of the deal was illegal. It violated Federal Anti-Kickback law. So when a new RFP was issued for the ambulance contract without the kickback and it was based on who could provide the best service, it was no contest. It went to JCMC EMS.

------------------------

As for the $1,000,000...
CarePoint represents the worst of for profit healthcare. More importantly, Fulop shows he has no concern for public health to align himself with such a reprehensible company. And this payout speaks volumes as to his close relationship with CarePoint and his pushing to move from JCMC EMS to CarePoint/McCabe EMS.

Remember when Fulop shoved through a law ending the city's ambulance contract with JCMC and awarded it to McCabe (who feeds the Carepoint network)?

The only reason it got stopped was because the State stepped in because Fulop's move was illegal. Guess he's been rewarded for his efforts. No wonder he tried to hide this.


The answers from CarePoint/McCabe on the Request for Proposal were appalling compared to JCMC. I say CarePoint/McCabe because that is what was on the cover page of their proposal and CarePoint is part owner of McCabe. Fulop's desire to have CarePoint win that contract was suspect.

As to the illegal move you refer to? The RFP was amended to include a kickback to the city for ambulance service. CarePoint included this kickback in their ambulance proposal. JCMC did not because it was illegal and they knew it. Paying the city a kickback for EMS transport is misuse of medical payments.

Enos Jones Park Closed - Lead Contamination
#53
Home away from home
Home away from home


More lead paint chips have been found at city parks and playing fields forcing the city to shut more sites, a city official said.

Shut were Ninth Street Park, which includes the Enos Jones playground and Roberto Clemente baseball field, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said. Mary Benson Park was shut on Thursday.

The Hudson Regional Health Commission Thursday found lead paint chips -- believed to be from construction on the New Jersey Turnpike Extension -- at the park used regularly by students at School 5 and the park closing was announced.

Morrill said the latest discovery comes after the city "proactively" sent out inspectors to make sure no other public area were impacted.

The playing areas will remain closed pending cleanup from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, Morrill said.

A request for comment from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority was not immediately returned.

Morrill said cleanup is expected to begin both parks tomorrow or Tuesday, depending on the weather.

Agreed! I hope decent pedestrian access and perhaps even bike lanes are included. It would be nice to have a more direct route walking downtown to Liberty State Park and this link could do it.

I'm skeptical of ulterior motives. This is New Jersey after all. In addition to the park, it will probably be easier access from the Holland Tunnel to the new casino..


There's a pedestrian bridge in place now and because there is no connection for cars there is zero traffic to contend with. A bridge for cars would add much more traffic to that area so I don't see that as a bonus for cyclists and pedestrians. As a resident of HP I usually drive to the park via Jersey Ave and go around the canal to go to the park or LSC. This bridge would only take a couple minutes off that drive so it is a very small convenience for DTJC drivers while potentially adding a bunch more traffic to Jersey Ave, particularly during the commute.

"Officials believe the span would improve congestion issues at New Jersey Turnpike Exit 14C". Generally there isn't much congestion besides commuting hours, so the plan is to put some of that congestion onto DTJC streets, or at least make it easier than it already is. Doesn't seem like a good tradeoff to me.

I don't think pushing up the price of a parking permit will lower the demand for them. It will simply be another fee going to a dysfunctional agency. The point of the permit is to make sure only people eligible for a permit get one. Bumping the fee will not reduce the amount issued, it's just another tax.

The parking authority could make a killing if they simply enforced parking rules. Not to mention make the crosswalks safer. They don't even check the permits when they roll down the streets. They should at least use different colors for the zones and year issued.

Re: HUGE GAS PIPELINE COMING - through Jersey City
#60
Home away from home
Home away from home


"A very large gas pipeline will soon skirt the Indian Point Energy Center (IPEC), an aging nuclear power plant that stands in the town of Cortlandt in Westchester County, New York, 30 miles north of Manhattan. The federal agencies that have permitted the project have bowed to two corporations -- the pipeline's owner, Spectra Energy, and Entergy, which bought the Indian Point complex in 2001 from its former owner.

A hazards assessment by a former employee of one of the plant's prior owners, replete with errors, was the basis for the go-ahead. A dearth of mainstream press coverage leaves ignorant the New York metropolitan region's population of 20 million people, which stands to be impacted by a nuclear catastrophe. Experts say a disaster as great as or greater than Fukushima could be triggered by a potential gas explosion at the nuclear complex."
