That article is kind of odd. They seem to Bash Obama more than they do McCain, but then chose Obama...? Still, I will agree, it's one of the more "grounded" articles I've seen about the campaign.

I don't take the killing spree seriously. You know how teenagers are. Someone probably texted some girl about a fight or something, and then some drama queen decided to stir up some BS. Like playing telephone, a fight, turns into killing, some one throws in a crazy number, purple monkey dishwasher...

A bunch of teenage boys killing 35 girls...Doesn't make that much sense to me... Half of us know what it's like to be a 16 yr old boy, in a gang or not, you want as many girls around as possible...lol

WOW...

This isn't even about politics...Seriously. You know nothing of what it's like to be in his shoes... You're spitting on a veteran's war wounds. His daughter and people close to him have said he can't use a computer b/c of his injuries, and that's enough. It's horrible to ask him to "prove it".

You guys are being cruel, almost mocking his injuries, and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

He's been a senator for 25 years... Looks like he has a system in place to get around it. Even think about his honor. Ever think that he doesn't want people to feel sorry for him, and have to use a handicap device.

God, are you all going to start throwing tennis balls at the governor of NY?

And to be honest, I really can care less if he uses the internet or email. If I was president, I wouldn't send emails... I'd have 4 Victoria Secret models do it for me. One would be called Read, one would be called Write, and I won't tell what the other 2 would be called....Mr. Clinton, you know what I'm talkin about. whudup.

I've heard it from his daughter's mouth.
It's really painful for him to type. I guess he just never got into it.

His arms and fingers were broken and never set right...I'm no doctor.

I broke my collar bone in HS. and couldn't lift my arm. I didn't use a computer for 4 months.

For real guys, you're punching below the belt with this one.

I like how you guys are already making excuses if Obama fails...

John McCain is NOT George Bush. And just because the country is in bad shape when Bush is in office, doesn't mean every republican will be like him.

And what a jackass.... McCain can't use a computer because of the injuries he received when he was in a prison camp. Why don't you just go steal a handicapped kid's wheelchair while you're at it....

Yes, there are somethings in our country that must be run by the government. Our roads are one of those.

Even though it is cool sometimes, I think it was a total mistake to open up the GPS satellites for commercial use.

I prefer the old fashioned maps anyways.

"socialist marketing tactics" does not mean he is a pure socialist...
I was making a reference that Obama is focusing his policy on what sounds good, rather than providing a solution that will actually WORK.

The concept of "Re-distribution of wealth"... leans more towards socialism.

Hook,
I can't agree with you more.

Any one who believes Obama's "economic plan" is going to help the overall economy is down right delusional. His ideas aren't derived from "what's best for the country". His plans are merely socialist marketing tactics. Place everyone's problems on "the corporations", and tell them that you're going to save the day.

No one wants people to suffer, but hand-outs aren't the way. Why do people hate rich kids? Because they get things without having to work for them. Same applies to people who wait around for the government check.

Hard work and ambition is what makes our country great. We cannot demonize and punish people for being successful.

The economy is going to get worse, a lot of jobs are at stake, and we need a leader who is going to take actions that will create more jobs. We need to stop companies for giving these opportunities away to other countries. Education IS accessible to anyone in this country who is willing to put the work in. We need to make higher education more financially accessible TO EVERYONE, not just certain groups.

Re: Heights: Jersey City teen beaten by driver after car is scratched, cops say

Home away from home


Yeah, a lot of details are missing here. I mean, How do you scratch a car "by accident". Did the kid fall of his bike or something?

I'm all for ass-whipping, but a tire iron to the face for a scratch on a toyota camry...? I dunno. If it was me, I think one swift shot to the knee would be enough.

I'm shocked that he didn't kill the kid... I've been on both ends of some vicious fights, I'd think a tire iron to the head would be lights out. Maybe he's got the shaolin iron skull? He's lucky to have walked away with what appears to be a pretty bad concussion.

I'm surprised Angel isn't getting attempted murder...

American Gentrifier...lol. priceless.

If anyone else is down, I wouldn't mind starting up a "Jersey Gentrification" zine...lol.

But anyways, I'm glad to see this thread take a more humorous position, like I originally intended. I think people just kind of lost their heads by not realizing what hipsters really were.

Is there REAL hatred there? No. But they are extremely annoying.

I don't want to go on a rant here, BUT....

As far as gentrification as a whole, goes. I think hipsters fall into a different category. It sucks to see the original fabric of a community being washed away, but at the same time, there are some positive benefits from it. And at least, from what I see, the yuppie-type crowd seems to be in it more for the long term.

Hipsters are more of a product of this gentrification. But they add no value to a community except to the local PBR distributor. And they offer less of a time commitment. They are always looking for the next "cool" place to live.

Over the last few years, I've seen so many of my hipster acquaintances come and go. They bounce around 3-4 apt's in brooklyn for 2 years, and then move to LA, SanFran, or Portland... Just last week I was told how "Portland is where it is at right now." I laughed to myself, tipped my yankee hat and bid farewell. But took that information, and logged it for future hipster encounters... Next time a hipster complains about "This place getting too played out", I will simply tell them how "Portland is where it's at right now", in hopes that it's one less hipster that decides "JC is the next brooklyn".

It's the one thing that really annoys me about the hipster culture is the lack of commitment to their environment. They will move to Bed Stuy and not even know who Peter Stuvesant is...The fashion is so poser it has no REAL commitment. It's whole concept is based on trying to out-do the person next to you with obscurity and randomness. There is no loyalty to music, it's whatever is the new sub-genre of indie music is. And they love to just add the word PUNK to the end of it's classification to give it street cred. Like, IndieClashDiscoPunk.

I blame the hipsterfication of music on my good friend, the internet. Back in the day, the only way you could hear about new bands is by actually going to shows. Nowadays, you can just cruise for bands on myspace. You can just buy band tshirts without ever getting your a$$ kicked in the pit. You can go online and read 2 or 3 photoshop tutorials and call yourself an artist... The hipsters just latch on to anything new, without committing to anything real.

It's Jersey City. Put one of these

in the pocket behind your passenger seat. So if sh&t ever hits the fan, you can quickly grab it with your right hand.

Hope you never have to use it, but it will make you a little less nervous when strangers approach your car.

Yeah, of course there are other important topics to cover. Like what color Sarahs shoes are, or Obama's fade away jumper.
But the Nasa budget is something I feel crosses party lines, and no matter who takes office, I feel that all the "sexy" issues are making people forget about other important ones.

I was reading about Reagan's "spaceplane" program on one of my nerd sites. Yes, it seems crazy, but who knows where we'd be right now if that project continued for 20 years.

The 2009 budget is proposed to be 3 billion more than 08. I'd like to see it doubled. I think our government needs to spend a lot more $ on developing new technology. It bleeds out into other sectors, besides expensive mattresses that you can jump on without spilling a glass of wine.

And, once the general public finds out about 99942Apophis, an asteroid that will pass below our geostationary satellites in 2029, I think people will throwing money at the NEO program.

In my line of work, i have to deal with a fair number of hipsters.

I've commented on people's glasses, only to have them tell me that they are fake. And if you ever venture into an Urban Outfitters, you'll see that they sell FAKE glasses.

Everything you just posted in your hipster resume is exactly what I'm talking about. Assuming "dabbling in photoshop" makes you awesome makes you that less awesome.

If I'm immature, you are just as guilty as I am. You think you are better than me because of the way I think. ANd that's fine. that's life. Not everyone is going to like or agree with me, and I' totally cool with that.

But if you really were "above" all this, you wouldn't be trying to reprimand me so much.

It's supposed to be a humorous thread on a website...Chill Out.
