I officially now hate on you. You embarrass me.


JEEZ!

Take your blinders off, stop judging, and enjoy life. You might learn something and, even better, you might find a nice girl who can love you for all your quirks and oddities. And she will think you are "cool" just the way you are.



I don't think you understand what hipsters are. lol.
I'm not going to learn anything from hipsters....

I enjoy life just fine, this is a thread on a website... It's not that big of a deal.

lol. You can hate on me all you want.

Mathias, that article was interesting, and brings up the main reasons why I dislike hipsters. When the history books look back at our generation, we are going to be remembered for remembering. It's pathetic.

I'm sorry, but yeah, I'm gonna hate on people who wear FAKE glasses, and make my generation embarrassing.

Me, get with a hipster chick? PLease. No one think hipsters girls are attractive, not even hipster guys. They are fugly, dirty, and have way too many clothes on for my taste. And what's with the
Lucy from charlie brown haircut?

OF COURSE YOU DON'T SEE HIPSTERS IN THE MIDWEST, you dumdum. They are people who move from the midwest and then dress like they THINK "cool city kids" dress.

Hold on...

I think a lot of people on this thread are confusing the term "hipster" and "Artist". They are two totally different things.

Hipsters are cultural tourists, posers. They add no value to a community. They are parasites. They move here from the midwest after getting a liberal arts degree, and once they get their city fix, they move back home.

In my line of work I know many graphic designers, only a handfull would fall into the hipster category. Hipsters do graphic design work "as a hobby". And I don't think hyperopia automatically makes someone a hipster.

If those horn-rimmed glasses are paired with an ironic mustache, then you have a hipster...or a child molester from the 70s who forgot to pack extra plutonium.

Nothing is worse than some dude who grew up in ohio and moves to brooklyn in his mid 20s and then "Hates Jersey".

Articles like this scare me, because the last thing we all want is for people looking to move to brooklyn to settle in JC instead.

Someone needs to write an article explaining that we live in JC because it's NOT brooklyn.

Re: Barack Obama for President

Hey Hey.
I would never "dodge questions" that are relevant to the thread. I've just been too busy the past 2 days to check the thread.

About his middle name. I understand the remarks, and half agree. A name IS just a name. But, he might be our president. It's not like his name makes him a terrorist. People that think that are retarded. But, I doubt many people would have voted for John Hitler Kennedy. Obama shares the same name of a man we just went to war with...I'm sorry, but it just looks bad... Again, it would be strange if people DIDN'T bring it up. Cmon.

Yes, my original post was sincere. I am truly trying to cut through the propaganda and find out the real reasons people support Obama. Most people I talk to about Obama seem to love him, but can't really give me a good reason. I find that strange. Almost every post that followed just attacked republicans or McCain. Or gave really weak reasons in support of Obama. Really weak.

I laughed at Br6's remarks that my questions are "deceptive and dishonest". It's a shame you don't have an answer to the questions I ask. So, instead you try to attack my character as having evil intentions for asking them.

It's exactly what is happening in the campaign right now. People are asking questions about Obama. And instead of fielding them, the followers just try and paint us as evil for asking them. People have said the worst about Bush, they will make fun of McCain's Handicap without shame or guilt. People are making a fake porno about Palin....But If someone asks simple questions about Obama, and you have the nerve to call them dishonest and deceptive??? or worse yet, Racist? Are you kidding me?

"We lie and steal to get what we want..." REALLY? See, people like you, br6, is why our country is so divided right now.

Which brings me to another point. It seems people are voting for Obama because they hate republicans, not because they think Obama is the best person for the job.

Vigilante. thanks for your response, and I can't really say much about the public opinion of Reagan during his campaign. I was 1 when he took office. But, he was a two term governor. I'm pretty sure we all could agree that Obama would be catching far less crap if he was a two term governor of Illinois.

As far as Rev. Wright goes. Uh...Yeah, If i was at church and the priest was screaming "god damn America" , white people are the devil, and was praising the 911 attacks as our own fault, I'd fight the urge to punch him in the face, and walk out. I was raised Catholic, and partly why I don't go to church now, I disagree with a lot the church says. DO most people think Obama thinks exactly like rev. Wright, NO. But, Obama is preaching Unity, and the church he belongs to is SCREAMING the opposite. That's what people are upset about. That's why people question it.

Listen, anyone involved in politics for more than 6 days will have some sort of "ties" to a shady character. It's amplified on Obama's side because his record is so short. It would be stupid for people NOT to ask about his ties with Wright and Ayers.

Again, running a successful marketing campaign doesn't qualify someone to become President. Graduating from Harvard doesn't either.

Yea dude...lol. It's kind of what i was getting at...

Every time I ask someone why Obama should be president I get a whole speech on George Bush and how republicans are idiots. But you didn't give one reason why Barrack Obama should be president... You didn't say one thing that he has done that qualifies him to be pres.

I'll agree with some of your statements. Even republicans are angry with things these days. But, to blame every problem we have on George Bush, it's a little naive.

Re: Barack Obama for President
Home away from home
Home away from home


Why does every liberal get mad when people use Obama's middle name? I mean, It IS his name, right?

If i was an Obama supporter, I wouldn't start kissing my own a$$ just yet. I don't feel the polls are that accurate. Yes, on sites like this, and many "political" sites, Obama seems to control most of the discussion. But I think a lot of people will be shocked once those numbers start coming through on election day.

Fact is, there are a lot of people that think Obama is a JOKE. You just don't hear about it.

I think the last debate was pathetic, on both sides. I haven't seen two zombies dance around like that since watching the THRILLER video.

But besides that, I'm honestly trying to get inside the heads of Obama supporters and figure out why people are in love with this guy. Because, I just can't understand it...and I'm honestly trying to.

I see these Obama Kool-Aid drinkers acting totally delusional, even more so lately. I mean, Obama's ties with Ayers are for real. Im not saying they are best buds, but PLEASE. I wouldn't step foot in that man's house, no matter what he could do for me, politically. Even if Obama doesn't agree with his ideology, he should know better not to affiliate with that psycho.

Rev. Wright. It's a big deal.

The dem's view on "tax insentives" are down right WRONG. They just use the terminology instead of saying "WELFARE". But, that's basically what it is. Their plan isn't just bad, it would be down right catastrophic for our economy. More companies will outsource jobs overseas, cut grants to schools, cut jobs in the states. The whole idea will also create huge inflation. People might get a few hundred bucks back on their tax return, but if they lose their job 5 months later...what good does that do? I like when instead of saying they are going to increase corporate tax, they say they are going to increase taxes on oil companies and CEO's. And sorry, small business owners...they file more than 250k a year. Way to kill the entrepreneurial spirit of the US.

I think it's just absurd when Obama talks about his childhood. Like he had such a hard life...? Why doesn't he talk about his DAD being a Harvard grad? But he does bring up a good point about the higher education situation in this country. Problem is, he doesn't see how RACIST it is. Talk to any white male looking to get into a top tier school nowadays... I lived with kids freshman year at college who went to school for free, when my test scores where over 200 pts. higher than theirs. And I had to work 2, sometimes, 3 jobs to pay for it.

But again, back to the point of why people love Obama... What has HE DONE, to make him an eligible candidate for the Presidency? I mean, the guy was in the senate for less than a school year before he decided to run for President. And, he wasn't the head of any committee. He didn't do anything outside the norm of any other senator...This whole concept of change...it's not on his resume...? I just don't get it.

I sincerely post this trying to get some real answers. Because every time a conservative brings any of these questions up, they never get answered. We just get this monolog about how red states are stupid and "4 more years" BS. Or they just quote marketing material from the huffington post.

Re: Does anyone know about a recent sighting of a Loch Ness monster type of creature in New York Har
Home away from home
Home away from home


As much as I'd love to believe there is a Plesiosaur-type creature patrolling the waters surrounding NJ, it just wouldn't make any biological sense.

There is no scientific relevance with these types of "monsters", and are mostly aberrations from fisherman. And throughout history, fisherman are not know for their accurate claims. But hey, some people do believe that they may have slipped through the KT extinction. But without any fossil remains, or any other scientific proof, I'd pass it all off as a good fisherman's story.

Even if plesiosaurs were still around today... NY harbor or the hudson wouldn't make a great place for them to live. Number one, they were "air breathing" animals. Meaning, they would have to surface like a dolphin for air. In the busy NY Harbor, more than just a few fisherman would notice... Plus, the currents and less than abundant food supply wouldn't make for a good haven for a huge apex predator.

It's probably just an eel, or a large sturgeon. Sturgeon can grow up to 12 feet. I think the record is like 19 ft or something like that. And, if you saw a sturgeon's back, you'd see right away how someone could mistake it for a "monster"...

Re: What does everyone think of the Bailout?
Home away from home
Home away from home


Wow, I'm surprised by the amount of intelligent posts on this topic.

My $.02...

We need to stop referring to this as a "Bailout". The media is driving this into a frenzy leading uninformed people to believe that the government is going to just "Hand out money to their CEO buddies." Our government is making an investment, not giving away money.

The past two weeks shows why the government needs to stay out of the economy as much as they possibly can. Most politicians are lawyers, not economists. They have no concept of the big picture. Timing is also a reason. If we had to go to congress every time to adjust rates, it would take weeks of BS...

The housing crisis or bubble burst, whatever you'd like to call it was caused by many different elements acting together. Of course low rates increases buying power, but I think the main cause is more of a social problem.

Democrats supporting freddie and fanny were pushing the limits of the system by demanding more home ownership of minorities, lowering the qualification standards for certain groups to pad their political careers. This, combined with the greed of mortgage brokers, led a ton of people into homes they couldn't afford.

At the same time, you have an influx of people buying property with the pursuit of getting rich. Just turn on your tv and count the shows and infomercials about making millions with realestate. Just look at our neighborhoods... People bought houses in "up and coming areas". WHY? Because they expect their property to double in price, not because they want to live in the community at that moment.

But with all that aside, everyone needs to take a deep breathe, put aside all the politics and focus on resolving this situation. Everyone is trying to play the political card. I think the democrats are trying way to hard to make this mess worse, thinking it will help them win an election. Meanwhile, our system is falling apart. Bloomberg for pres? Where's Mitt Romney when we need him?

It's summer time. Plain and simple.
It's not even a teenager thing...Old guys are in on it too.
Wearing a white tshirt is much cooler than wearing a black one, temperature wise. They always look clean because you can buy 3 packs for like 5.99...So you wear them a few times and then toss em. So yeah, they are cheap and comfortable.

Welcome to summertime in the city, standard equipment: White tshirt and a yankee fitted.

JC Basement Shows

So A_trio put out a new album last week, and of course it's not their best work, but it definitely got me reminiscing of those college days... With that in mind...Does anyone in JC have a nasty, dirty basement that one could host a halfway decent show?

Question 2
Any ex-punk/hardcore/emo people feel like playing music again?
PM me if you'd be interested in starting something, just for fun and old time's sake.

Re: Liberty National golf course

Has anyone seen the course in Bayonne? Yes, it's expensive, it's cool that it is open to Bayonne residents, 150 is steep for green fees, but besides that....

http://www.bayonnegolfclub.com/

It looks like an extremely difficult course. Definitely not for the recreational player. I find it extremely strange that people would build two VERY high end courses almost on top of each other. I know it happens in other areas, but I'm surprised to see it happen in hudson county.

I heard the course near the meadowlands stopped construction..., anyone with any more info on that?

If JC actually has plans for even a short 9 hole open course, it would be great. A little fresh grass never hurts anyone, and it could open the sport up to people that normally would never get exposed to it. It's also one more thing to gets younger kids off the couch.

Re: Barack Obama for President

Oh, I understand the context. I was actually trying to take it easy on him. I mean, hearing Obama talk about PTSD makes me laugh , when his opposition actually served in the armed forces and was a POW. What makes PTSD so hard to support is the lack of people who can actually understand what soldiers have gone through.

My grandfather was in WW2, and I actually know where he fought, but I'll never have the arrogance to deliver a speech implying that I know what it's like to be in combat. And like I said before, if it had such an impact on his family....HE WOULD KNOW EVERY LAST DETAIL. IF IT WERE TRUE.

Yes, the mainstream liberal media B & whine whenever someone picks on their golden boy. And they disregard the transparency of the Obama campaign's weak attempt to make Barrack seem patriotic when it comes to our armed forces and defense.

Barrack loves to build his own experience from members in his family. His Grandmother, His Uncle, His Mother... It sounds so juvenile.

Yep, every 10th grader. WW2, Holocaust studies in a basic US History class.

And yeah, if it had such an impact on his life...He would get the facts right.

Is it that big of a deal, No, but it points out more and more how Obama uses BS to try and gain experience points in his life that he, himself didn't earn.

Yes, when Hildog or McCain slips up, they get criticism, too. Obama supporters better get used to taking some things on the chin, instead of whining about it.

I love clicking on posts thinking they are jokes, and then realizing they are for real, and how delusional people can be.

This real-estate crap needs to stop. It's pathetic how these crappy PR firms are hired, thinking that a few articles in local papers can reverse decades of the cultural and economic situations of a city.

It's a sad attempt to try and cash in on new condos and homes, by trying to trick transplants into a concept that couldn't be farther from the truth.

Why can't a city just be what it is. Trenton has it's place in our state and country's history, i think it is downright comedy to try and say it's the "NEW" anything. It's ridiculous.

When will it end? How outrageous will all this "NEW CITY" talk get?

Staten Island is the New Atlantis.
Morristown is the New Paris
And the Jersey City waterfront will now be the New center of the universe.

Sal.

I think i answered most of your questions in previous posts.
Yeah, there are 20-30, they are floating on the internet, and yes I have looked them up. I'm not going to post a ton of videos and crud this thread up even more. But you can find most of them on youtube, or if you dare...Foxnews.com.

Dude, Wright is a total psycho, I'm not even going to dig into it even more. If you agree with the man, that's you're prerogative, just don't run for president.

I love how Liberals criticize fox, when almost every major media outlet in this country has a dramatic left position. Most major papers and tv networks barely touched the topic until Obama made a "historic speech". And yeah, the "thought" he put into his speech...please. He freakin lied. A few days ago he was on CNN and said that he never heard Wright talk like that. And then in his speech he says he did.

Like I've said before, if you don't see anything wrong with that church, everytime they say the word black, replace it with white, and see how crazy it now sounds.

Re: Barack Obama for President

Home away from home


Wow lecxe, there sure is a lot of sugar in that Kool-Aid you're drinking.

OK. number one, stop trying to attack my statements like a lawyer. Yes, I am paraphrasing Wrights remarks.

Yes, he says aids is was injected into the black community by the government, and THEN he goes on to say that the government is the white man....blah blah blah...put 2 and 2 together, and there you go. He then goes on to say jesus was black and white, italians, europeans killed him. And that white people have been attacking the black man ever since...The guy's totally nuts.

Yes, he doesn't say "un evolved human beings" as a quote. But he talks many times about how white people are less evolved, and not the original creatures of creation, or something like that. I'll admit, i don't take notes when i watch tv. I'm speaking from memory.

As far as Obama's speech goes...

I'll admit, i used to like Obama, months ago. The more i hear him speak, i dislike him more and more. His tv commercials straight up make me laugh. "We're going to change the world". ??? Every person running for president obviously has a big ego, but I think Obama has a freaking god complex.

His speech, I like how he wouldn't discuss the matter from the hip, but needed to have 48 hrs or so to get his thoughts together. He sets up like 9 american flags behind him and delivers a speech acting like he's a 2d term president already.

I like how he lost that Martin Luther King Jr. accent he's been working on the past month...and I don't think he addressed the real issue of him being a part of this radical church. He just basically added to the contradiction in his life, by saying that Rev. Wright is a compassionate person who taught him to love his fellow man... Sorry, but i've seen about 20-30 speeches from Rev Wright, and I have yet to see this compasion...

I don't think his speech was courageous at all. Instead of taking aim at the fact that he belongs to a racist-oriented church, he gave this "grand" speech about race relations in america, quoting from the constitution and giving us all a 3rd grade history lesson, like we've never heard it before. I think the speech played up his ego even more. He gave that speech for himself, not for us.

Yes, there still is a racial divide in this country, and it's being caused by people like the ones in Obama's church.

I'll say it again. If it was John McCain. And he was found to be a 20 year member of a neo nazi group. He'd be done. And if he then went on stage and gave a speech about race relations, he'd be a hypocrite liar, with a finished political career. It's like Bill Clinton giving people marriage advice.

Obama is a great speaker, and he message is positive and very alluring, but I'm not buying it.

Re: Barack Obama for President
Home away from home
Home away from home


The fact that Obama is still in the race after this astonishes me.

Now, I will give him the benifit of the doubt when it comes to how close his relationship is to Rev. Wright. I'm a conservative, but have many friends and acquaintances who have extremist views towards our government. And their voice doesn't influence me in any way.

But besides Rev. Wrights actions, the entire ordeal goes much further than that. If you look up the church in general, you will see the entire position of that church is racist and extremist. It's not just one psycho who will spit hatred here and there. If you saw the commercial for the church, you will understand. It's strange, almost, cult-like.

It brings up HUGE questions about Obama. Why in the world would he be a part of this church if he doesn't believe in it's very public racist position? How can he send his children to a church where they are told that white people are trying to infect them with the aids virus?

How can he stand on a stage with a straight face, and tell america that he wants to unite our country and end racism, when he belongs to a church that tells young black kids that white people are un-evolved human beings?

Now, i am somewhat sympathetic to Rev. Wright. I understand that the black community has faced a great deal of racism in it's history here in America. I understand that he is angry. But there is NO EXCUSE to go on stage and shout hate speech and propaganda towards an entire race of people. These men talk about a future where racism doesn't exist, how is that going to happen when they are telling children to hate white people?

Barack Obama IS A MEMBER of this church for 20 years. Whether he says it to a camera or not, it is proof that he at least condones this type of hate speech.

Think of it on the flip side...If John McCain was found out to be a member of a white supremest group, He'd be done, he'd be finished, NO QUESTION ABOUT IT....and I'd be glad. Because there is no excuse for that type of racist thinking.
