Couple of the resident whiners are throwing my name around with no basis in fact. I've never said a Read More9% increase makes sense to me. If you think I did show it to me. As far as handouts go.....not a factor in the equation. The pension (which public employees are FORCED to pay into, NO CHOICE) is part of a compensation package that is given in return for work . Just like the guy pumping your gas gets compensated, so do public employees. Just like the truck driver gets compensated, so do public employees. Would your taxes be less if the public employees were not compensated? Let's say yes. Would your gas be cheaper if the guy pumping it wasn't compensated? Again lets say yes. Would your groceries be cheaper if the guy trucking them to your supermarket wasn't compensated? Again, yes. Here's the BIG difference, you bitch and moan about the public employees because YOU'RE TOLD TO. You can't think for yourselves. How much tax is on a gallon of gas ON TOP of what the guy pumping it is paid? You don't care because no one is TELLING you to care! How much are you paying that trucker to get your case of Schmitts to the liquor store? You don't care because no one is TELLING you to care. Is the truckers boss bitching on the TV about how much he has to pay his driver? HELL NO! His driver is being compensated because that what it takes to keep the business going! Public employees are being compensated because that's what it takes to keep Prisoners locked up and drunks off the street. But their boss is telling you they're the bad guys BECAUSE THEY AGREED TO THE COMPENSATION THAT WAS OFFERED THEM! Who offered it? THE PEOPLE YOU ELECTED! Please don't give me the union crap, unions can demand whatever they want, doesn't mean the have to get it! And.....these unions can't strike! I have no doubt that the whiny bitches will keep doing what their daddy tells them to and blame the guy hosing the crap off the machines at the sewage treatment plant for all the state's woes, but hear this........PAY YOUR DEBTS. BITCHES!

For those crying about public takers, what do you propose? I prefer to live in a society withRead Morepublic education, police, fire, sanitation, etc. I for one, get no governmental financial assistance other than a tax credit on my health insurance (some day I will be living off social security), but am a full-fledged reliant public taker of all it's services. I wouldn't make it on my own in the wilderness! I also gladly pay my fair share of taxes for those services; but yes I do complain that others don't pay their fair share.

The dates and places aren't announced very far in advance -- the local Republican Club, seniorRead Morecitiz ens and other Christie fans who don't work during the day are invited first and take up most of the available seats. They go along with his well-orchestrated "photo opp" and cheer his every point. Questioners outside of his inner circle aren't called on to speak. Reporters aren't allowed to ask questions, just film the sound bites. Bridgegate and the other scandals are never mentioned. He blames the feds, Obama and the NJ Dems for everything. He's not responsible for any of his many failures. End of story. Don't bother to go.

They never announce too far ahead; they don't want people to have time to organize protests. Read MoreThough the police and fire department had a nice protest turnout the other day when he despicably had a "town hall" at a park named after a Sandy Hook victim.

Well then, Cardinal...should all those who received $$ to rebuild their homes and decided to sellRead Morefa ll into the same category? What is your point?
Cardinal July 22, 2014 at 09:32 AM
I'll make the point a little more clearer for those who have challenges, the Seaside boardwalkRead Morerecei ved great, great, quick attention from this governor and then the Seaside boardwalk quickly received millions and millions of taxpayer money BEFORE many, many homeowners, Sandy victims, saw anything from Christie's "poor to perform" administration. And now for that Seaside boardwalk to turn around and quickly sell a sentimental and major attraction of that boardwalk that the taxpayers SAVED, that is a slap in the face to tax payers. Where's big mouth Christie NOW ?
Brandy the Dog July 22, 2014 at 11:14 AM
The carousel is private property. The owner of it is free to sell it he/ she / they wish to do soRead Moreju st as Cardinal is free to make an offer to buy it inasmuch as he is so moved by it. Put up or shut up your big mouth NOW Cardinal Smith!

Cardinal- for a change I agree with you about the 1%!...and what a change their tax rates took from Read More1970??
suz July 21, 2014 at 08:14 PM
Hey guys....this is American. We are all equal with what we are entitled to receive. Why shouldRead Moreso me pay more taxes than others? Not fair in my book.
Brandy the Dog July 21, 2014 at 11:22 PM
Cardinal Smith, are you cool sporting your summer crew cut? Bzzzzzzzz!
