If one was intelligent, Brian, one would understand that it is hard for one side to participate in aRead More fair debate when they automatically want your freedoms scaled back. It is impossible to carry on a debate with someone like that. No oppression on MY part. Dana on the other hand has told everyone bars should close early and has directed us to diners or friends houses. Go read all of her posts. How do I respect a dictatorial position like that? Lets keep it real if we're keeping it real.

I think the government should control everything. People shouldn't be trusted....we are all aRead More danger to ourselves and need to be protected by the big all powerful all knowing all wise government. Silly humans....trust in the really smart people who chose politics as a profession. The LAST thing we want is anyone being responsible.
Kenneth Kaplan July 22, 2014 at 09:19 am
Coffeenut, there is no need to engage in name calling. I disagree strongly with Dana Marie, but I'dRead More like this discourse to be more civil. The problem is when we prosecute people for a status rather than a crime. Drinking in a bar at any hour should not be forbidden. Drinking in a bar is a status. Being a teen out after curfew is a status. Driving drunk is a crime. Breaking into cars is a crime. The fact that a bar patron might drive drunk afterwards or a teen out late might break into a car is no reason to prohibit the behavior that in and of itself is not a crime.

Phil Players and Losers get comped, plan and simple. The Poconos Tanked The, Catskills Tanked,Read More Mystic Conn. Tanked Smithville Tanked, Miami Tanked all once popular resorts and destinations , Atlantic City Like Asbury Park never rose from the Tank and are now Drowning, The Jersey Shore is Honkie Tonk for the Most Part ( A hidden Gem of affordability for a Day Trip with A Giant Water Slide Reasonably priced rides mostly for the Kids Ice Cold Beer and Hamburgers Rebuilt since Sandy is Keansburg A replenished super wide Beach with the whitest sand. BUT The problem is its The Raritan Bay shore ( WATER ) Economy and times Change, I have been to all of them and would Never Return.

William, Yes, but I can get comped and go to AC and comped and go to the Bahamas. Do I have toRead More think twice about where I'm going? Also, and not that I'm in a hurry to go to either place, the Poconos got gambling and it helped them. The Catskills didn't and they're dead. Miami Beach re-gentrified and it's a fine place to go after many dark years, so I'm not sure what you're referring to there. Mystic? Not sure what you're talking about, but it still looks like a decent seaport and aquarium, so I'm not sure what you're talking about. I don't know anything about Smithville and can't comment. Some places, like Hoboken, like Miami, like midtown Manhattan (it was pretty nasty there back in the '70s) knew they had to do something and re-invent themselves. Other places, like Newark, have been rotting since the 1967 riots and seem to be waiting for someone else to deliver a truckload of fairy dust because they can't seem to be able to get off their asses there. For some reason, AC figured that the novelty of casino gambling on the east coast would carry them along for many years. But they had to re-invent themselves, too, as in cleaning up the city, and never did it. And look where they are. It sure as heck isn't a gambling destination like Vegas or the Caribbean; it's a day trip, at best. So, between the honky tonk, as you say, that's a big part of the Jersey shore (and we can't forget about the hole that is Asbury Park) and Atlantic City tanking, I'm convinced this state has been run by idiots for many years.

How about waking up earlier and beating the traffic? Then staying a little later and waiting until it subsides? Another person looking for a hand out.
