The Brian Lehrer show had a good segment on question #2: NJ's Ballot Question 2 Hands Voters the Wheel on Gas Money

So there's an election Tuesday, lots of bandwidth wasted on Exalted Leader, but not so much on the more important local issues.

Two state questions:
1) Should gambling be permitted in two add'l counties outside of AC with 2 more CasiNOs?
2) Should the entire proceeds of the petroleum products tax be dedicated to Transportation?

Two City questions:
1) Eliminate a unique election day for JC, hold elections concurrently with the National/State election day (Tuesday after the first Monday in November)
2) Add $0.02 per $100 valuation to property tax for recreation/conservation/historic purposes (that's an extry $20 on a $100k assessed property).

Finally, 3 seats are open on the nine member Board of Education, noe of the 3 incumbents are running. 8 of the 10 candidates are running as members of a slate.
you can visit this site https://ballotpedia.org/Jersey_City_Public_Schools_elections_(2016) for lots of information I'm too tired to type

Finally, remember, rights not exercised are at risk of being lost, and this being Hudson County, if you don't vote, someone else just might vote for you!!

Only bad people want to make it harder for people to vote. I'm voting yes, like a good person.

[04:53 PM] Soshin: I don't think I've ever had fig spread Darna but I like figs and they make my sphincter sing power ballads

[10:23 PM] skwirrlking: you submitting darna for beards eating cupcakes - mca?

[03:24 PM] Darna: [03:22 PM] jeht'aimeu: skw, you are climbing up my pole as well...

I am voting no.
TheFang: yeah, i gotta agree with jehu here

Darna: we had a lovely shat with mrs binky this morning

stephen: Hmm I'm as clueless as you are.

Darna: could someone please splain to me why a person in a gang is called a gangbanger but a gangbang has nothing to do with gang activity?

shahaggy: can't believe I'm saying this but +1 jehu

[02:58 PM] MCA: it's not stalking, it's caring enough to find out things she won't tell you herself

[01:35 PM] shahaggy: fine but jehu's correct

TheFang: as much as it pains me to say, jehu might be right.

One time, I hired a monkey to take notes for me in class. I would just sit back with my mind completely blank while the monkey scribbled on little pieces of paper. At the end of the week, the teacher said, "Class, I want you to write a pape
