For real, why are they going up against Monday Night Football?

The dates for these debates were set before the NFL setup this year's schedule and before Clinton and Trump became the nominees.


Huh? When is there *not* a Monday Night Football telecast in a late September Monday??



Or maybe its irrelevant since a week 3 game(or any game, for that matter) is probably not as important as a presidential debate. Up to you, though.

I actually agree with the president, but to your point:

"Mr. Obama issued the veto behind closed doors on Friday without fanfare, reluctant to call attention to a debate that has pitted him against the families of terrorism victims. Not long before he did so, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee who had previously backed the measure, confirmed that if she were in the Oval Office, she would sign it."

WHAT. Literally every single one of them was an immigrant. None of them were American born nor were they citizens.

The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda. An overwhelming majority, 15 of the 19, were citizens of Saudi Arabia.[1] The others were from the United Arab Emirates (2), Egypt and Lebanon.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijackers_in_the_September_11_attacks



I'm a very liberal guy, and it really hurts liberal causes in general when delusional people like you bend over backwards and lie to justify Islamic terrorism. Don't willfully ignore reality just to make themselves feel better, it just hurts your ability to muster support for other causes.


they were here on temporary tourist, business, and student visas. they did not immigrate to the U.S.

http://www.fairus.org/issue/identity- ... status-of-9-11-terrorists

Webster's definition of immigrant: "a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence."

the word you're looking for is "visitor."


I'm sure that's why you made your original post. You just wanted to remind people that the 9/11 hijackers weren't Muslim immigrants, they were merely "visitors."

You'd make a great newscaster.


you may not like the distinction, but it's an important one.

the Syrian immigrants who are going through the hassle of getting permanent resident status here are people who actually want to live here. the process can take up to two years.

the 9/11 hijackers - whose sole reason for coming here was to do us harm - took the easiest route with short-term visas.

the father of the Chelsea bomber built a business and a community here, and he reported his kid to the FBI when he thought that kid was a danger to fellow Americans. those are the actions of a dedicated immigrant, not a malevolent visitor. (yes, he had issues with his neighbors. just because he himself was not a threat, doesn't mean he can't be annoying.)



You are leaving out the most important fact. The Syrian "refugees" cannot be properly vetted, as our intelligence heads have repeatedly stated. The necessary paperwork doesn't exist, because their countries are torn up. Making it very easy for ISIS to sneak in plenty of their people, as they've been doing in Europe.


To extrapolate that logic, since we cannot properly vet "applicants" for firearms, we should simply ban them completely.

Call the tax assessor's office and explain to them what you've heard. They're friendly and at times surprisingly forthcoming with information.

I think that is likely BS but anything is possible.


I did hear of this anecdotally on the Harsimus Cove NextDoor page. I believe someone purchased a single or two family on 5th street for around $750k. Saw their taxes jump from $5800 to $15500.

I took a look in today and it does seem like quite a bit has been done recently. The bar is complete and it looks like most of the seating/booths have been constructed/upholstered. Lighting fixtures are in. They might actually open in time for the NFL season.

That being said, it didn't look like the fits and finishes were as high end as originally intended when Monty's was billed as sort of a throwback, swank gentlemen's club (not the stripper kind)..

This (probably) does NOT mean loud music and bros are on the way, since even today, that's way out of step for JC. Let's wait and see what the concept is first before getting out the torches and pitchforks.


I would say that evidence points to the contrary. If you click through the original link you can get to an EV Grieve article about how they had to re-brand their East Village Bar Akuda (which was a PREMIER SPORTS GASTROPUB) into The Grayson within the first month.

Guess what The Grayson bills itself as... THE BEST SPORTS BAR IN THE EAST VILLAGE. Seems like some pretty sick market research.

Agreed it is an unruly space. But why not give me something to do other than sit down and eat shitty bar food while watching a game. Something like the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Gowanus would be packed 7 nights a week.

Or segment/sublease the space and turn it into a food court like Berg'n that allows up-and-coming restaurants a shot at some space without the huge overhead.

Re: Democratic Convention

I believe SOS' point was that the very person Trump criticized on Friday was the same "Civilian of the Year" fire marshall who helped get him out of an elevator on Saturday.

With regards to the 10 new voters, do you really think that presidential candidates are put into elevators with anyone other than campaign staff? That would be an extreme security risk.

He must have won over 10 new voters during the 30 minutes... not any criticism of his behavior by them in the Denver Post? Wouldn't you want to talk with them?

BTW SOS... If you read the story closely, Trump blasted the FM on Friday about a safety/capacity issue at a rally. He had no issue with the performance of the firefighters on Saturday that helped with the elevator. Two unrelated events. Sometimes FM jobs can be political appts. like the JC Director of Public Safety.

Baby Donald Stuck in Elevator: Throws Temper Tantrum - Blames it on Democrats

http://www.denverpost.com/2016/07/30/ ... p-criticism-fire-marshal/

Donald Trump rescued from stuck elevator by Colorado Springs firefighters. Then he called out the fire marshal.
Donald Trump was stuck in an elevator with 10 other people for 30 minutes, the fire department said

The fire marshal that Donald Trump criticized for capping attendance at his Colorado Springs event on Friday responded later to a local television station.

Fire marshal Brett Lacey told 11 News the problem was that organizers handed out too many tickets.

?There?s an old adage that when a fire marshal walks into a room, milk curdles. So because we?re always looking out for public safety and trying to make certain venues go off successfully and safely sometimes there are people that aren?t very happy with some of the rules and regulations we?re required to enforce. But it doesn?t bother me at all,? he told the TV station.

Criticizing the fire marshal on Friday, Trump said he didn?t know what he was doing and was ?probably a Democrat.?

Lacey, was recently honored by the city as ?Civilian of the Year? for his role in helping the wounded at a 2015 mass shooting at a local Planned Parenthood.

Also on Saturday, the Colorado Springs Fire Department confirmed that the reason Trump?s event started late was because he got stuck in a hotel elevator and had to be rescued by Colorado Springs firefighters.

The fire department said in a statement that Trump was trapped inside an elevator at The Mining Exchange Hotel with about 10 other people for 30 minutes.

Firefighters opened the top elevator hatch and lowered a ladder to get everyone out of the elevator.

What's interesting is the property taxes will almost triple after the reval on that property, from $2.5k to ~$7k (2.234% * $315k).

Property tax calculator


The taxes will certainly go up, but I think the price is still high and would imagine the assessment to come in closer to 250k based on sales of 2br's in that area over the last 12 months. About a doubling instead of tripling.

Either way, if the buyer is currently in downtown getting a sweetheart deal, that will likely end once their property owner gets hit with reval.

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.


You're not answering his question by saying that you fault the DNC. He's asking what your opinion is of the fact that "Trump attacked a family who paid the ultimate price with a fallen son fighting for our country. "

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)

F'ing brilliant from the PA again:

PATH will not run extra WTC-NWK trains on weekends. WTC-NWK trains will continue to operate on their normal 20-minute weekend schedule.

However, there will be a ?new? WTC-JSQ line that will run every 12 minutes. This line does not show up on their new map or brochures and they refer to it as an ?unscheduled? line to accommodate ridership on an as needed basis. (They mention this around the 15-minute mark in the first video. You?ll want to crank up your speakers as the audio is very low).

A WTC-Hoboken line will run every 12 minutes as well as a new JSQ-Hoboken line. Basically, if you live in Hoboken, you?re in really good shape.

PS - the article got a few things wrong (the closures of The Kitchen and Bell + Gray had little or nothing to do with Restaurant Row growing too quickly) but their main point (the outrageous monthly nut for that space) is definitely worthy of discussion.


The original post mentioned a $15k/month increase, which means they were paying $17.50 a foot up until this renewal which is pretty bargain basement. Granted, they probably negotiated that years ago.

The problem with retail space is that nobody really knows what anyone else is paying. Sure, you can look at previous listings but it seems to be a pretty common tactic in 07302 to throw huge numbers up and negotiate back down to reality.

And they are not typically a problem unless the apartment has a hole in the wallboard where they are getting into the apartment.

The smaller roaches are the real problem. They typically live in the apartment and can be in the sink, fridge, kitchen cabinets or range. You need to do a bug bomb to get rid of them.


Yup. If what you're seeing is the bigger one (American cockroach/waterbug), in my experience, you're seeing them when they're on their last legs or just out enjoying the warm weather. Take a shoe to it and don't sweat it too much.

I'm surprised no one has chimed in about the FIVE LEVELS of parking integrated into the building. That's a parking lot across from another (the one at 50 Columbus, which is usually mostly empty) and across the street diagonally from another parking lot (the one at Grove Pointe) that is usually somewhat empty, as well. I thought we were trying to move away from the idea of reliance on cars and towards more pedestrian friendly concepts.

In any case, I think it also speaks volumes that neither the Planning Board, nor Traffic Department, seem to think that traffic in the area is already a chaotic mess. WTF?


Normally I would agree with you, but this is a grocery store.

Do you intend to see folks walking across those major roadways with shopping bags in tow or pushing their carts to these other lots and then returning those same carts to the store?

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)

To be honest, that line has been garbage on weekends since they started routing it through Hoboken. The time difference will be negligible if the shuttles are running frequently or if you want to drop the additional $2.75 to ride a subway.

The real kicker here is that there is no mention of an increased frequency in service on the NWK-WTC line. That line currently runs every 20 mins during peak hours and all the way up to 35 mins during overnight hours.

JSQ-33rd via HOB runs every 10 mins during peak hours and again up to 35 mins during late nights.

With no increased frequency, those trains are going to be a nightmare all summer long. Sorry, tourists who thought you were on the up and up getting a cheaper hotel in JC and into Manhattan in a timely and comfortable manner.
