Zak - your lead is CG holding his third dog and pony show, a complete non event, it comes ahead if the mayor's kickoff and the announcement of who will fill the empty slit on her ticket, and there,'s still no coverage about the controversy surrounding the claims of the save the projects folks that they've been harassed by both Garcia and the police. It seems like you've been conned. Wake up and smell the coffee son.

demosthenes - Your characterizing the third of the public forums on the Vision 20/20 plan in a derogatory fashion is disappointing but not surprising. Pitting affordable housing plans for thousands of citizens and costing hundreds of millions of dollars in a secondary role against a political kickoff for a fait accompli re-election campaign is indicative of an overly active political mindset IMHO.

To me a dog and pony show is full of sound and furry with little if any actual content. If Mr. Garcia is still just showing the outdated brochure, it is a dog and pony show. Low income housing is important, a detailed plan would be appreciated.

zak, I love how they tell you what to do, when to do and why to do it. Can't they get their own blogs and do it themselves? No they can't because they're cowards. They did this to Claire. Want free advice? They're trying to rattle your barn to get you to quit. They want patch all pro zimmer. Theyre planning an onslaught soon to make you go nuts. You've been warned

CG and DG - why waste the energy making two posts? Just coordinate better within your own delusional mind. The kind of delusional mindset that thinks that what garbage CG is prancing about with is even remotely sufficient to explain his "Vision", let alone explain the thuggish tactics of his goon squad. What is he hiding? A response from one of you is sufficient.

khomoken, go yell at your kids or something when they come home from camp

Stand back, as I am about to unleash my reign of terror with my words. So, you misogynistic pig, you are claiming the right to silence (by suggesting that attending to household chores is the appropriate use of my time) a voice that disagrees with your political positions in a news outlet on which you just posted that the Zimmerists are trying to drown out any anti Zimmer coverage and only want pro Zimmer news. See the inherent conflict in your obtuse reasoning which demonstrates a clear lack of rational thought and logic? I am willing to bet that you don't get it, as nothing that you have posted would indicate that you otherwise possess the requisite intellectual capacity and willingness to rationally discuss any issue related to Hoboken politics with anyone that disagrees with you.
BruceD August 15, 2013 at 05:49 PM
BTW, I am wiling to overlook the misspelling of the screen name and believe that even a slug like you is not going to the gutter with a homophobic swipe.
Daria Gluck August 15, 2013 at 06:05 PM
You're response reminds me of the man in the movie Billy Madison where Sandler rambles off an answer that makes no sense and the guy asking the questions says thank you for making us all dumber. Your response is similar. You make me laugh, thank you. Without you the net would be too serious. Now go F off and screw with a condo association somewhere
Hoboken Answer August 15, 2013 at 06:15 PM
Wow, "Daria" has lost it. Again. Why would a woman attack another woman's children? Misogynistic ugliness from a nasty political operative. Unseemly. Desperate measures by flailing politicos. What desperate measures will we see next?
Daria Gluck August 15, 2013 at 07:08 PM
Stan, did you sell any diamonds today?
HobokenLeaks August 15, 2013 at 09:05 PM
Billy Madison is such a chick flick. What a moron.
Carol Harrison August 16, 2013 at 08:21 AM
I don't believe that Daria Gluck is really named Daria Gluck. I don't believe Dov is really named Dov. I don't believe Cidy Goldberg is really named Cindy Goldberg. But I will not speculate on who they really are. I suggest no one does. I think attempts to out the true identity of a poster should be viewed critically. Especially if someone is wrong, they could be charged with liable or slander. If you think it is wrong for Grafix Avenger is wrong to speculate who Curious Gal and company are, then don't be a damn hypocrite and to the same to Khoboken, hoboken Answer, or anyone else. Everyone, judge people by their actions. Daria's actions are that of a hypocrite.
Carol Harrison August 16, 2013 at 08:22 AM
And ethnic insults against a Jewish person, by a supposed Jewish person. That is one reason I don't think Ms. Gluck is Jewish.

Time to stop children!
Daria Gluck August 16, 2013 at 05:10 PM
carol, you're an idiot
Carol Harrison August 23, 2013 at 11:06 PM
My response was not posted. I've had poor Internet access lately. Daria, do you think name calling helps you? One definition of idiot is a person that takes self-defeating actions.
