Slightly to the Right in New Jersey

Conservative comments on New Jersey

These people must think we are idiots!

I sent an  email to this idiot Menendez telling him that I  did not support the DREAM ACT.  This is what the idiot sent back:

 

 

Dear Mr. Zuendt:

 

Thank you for contacting me to express your support for the DREAM Act.  Your opinion is very important to me, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to you on this important issue.

 

You will be pleased to know that I am a strong cosponsor of the DREAM Act and am fighting tirelessly to enact this critical legislation into law.  As the first person in my family to attend college, I can personally attest to the vital importance of a quality education.  The DREAM Act, would give countless innocent children the same opportunity I had – to fully reach their potential and fulfill the American Dream.  In doing so, it will give our country thousands of new doctors, and teachers, and pilots, and servicemen.  It is a win-win situation for both those who would directly benefit from this legislation, as well as our country as a whole.

 

Those that oppose the DREAM Act believe that children should pay the consequences for their parents’ mistakes.  They believe that children who were brought to this country by their parents without the proper documentation or were kept in this country by their parents without the proper documentation should not be allowed to get an American education.  That is not only wrong – it goes against who we are and what we stand for.

 

I am disappointed that the Senate failed to pass the DREAM Act this past October.  You may rest assured I will continue to fight until every child in the United States has the opportunity to reach the American Dream.  Anything less is simply un-American.

 

Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.  I appreciate your support.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of more assistance.  I invite you to visit my website http://menendez.senate.gov to learn of other important issues to New Jersey.

 

Now, I ask you, “don’t you think it is about time that we had drug testing for the members of congress? 

Hey Bobby, we are coming for you in three years, but until then just remember, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID”!

Senator Lautenberg makes a fool out of himself again!

You have to love our Senator Lousyberg.  Talk about making a fool out of himself, he also takes all of the others down too!

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) predicted on Thursday that none of his Senate colleagues would “have the chance” to read the entire final version of the $790-billion stimulus bill before the bill comes up for a final vote in Congress. “No, I don’t think anyone will have the chance to [read the entire bill],” Lautenberg told CNSNews.com.

Now folks, what is the first thing you are told to do before you sign anything, READ IT OVER and UNDERSTAND IT!  It is this same reasoning that caused all of the problems in the mortgage market, people not knowing what they are signing!  Of course they then run back and say “I didn’t know that was what I was agreeing to”!  The only problem with this, is we have to pay for the mistakes. 

This jerk is going to approve spending $790 BILLION and not read what he is approving?  This is the best that New Jersey can do?  This jerk should be in an old age home having someone change his diaper.

Global Warming Again

Over the past few days, I have written some posts that I hope show you that the question of “Global Warming” and “Greenhouse Gases” is far from being answered.  Here is another site that I urge you to check out.  It is a petition drive that has been launched by two professors in Oregon.  Right now they have over 31,000 signatures of which over 9,000have Phd’s!  The statement is pretty simple, the whole idea of Global Warming/Greenhouse Gases is junk science.

http://www.petitionproject.org/

Take a moment, see the petition, see who have signed it, see what branches of the sciences they come from.  Start to really think about this problem, do you want to believe the likes of Al Gore, or real scientists?

No matter what the idiots in Trenton think about Global Warming, just remember we are coming for you in November, but until then, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

The Hudson River Railroad Tunnel

Thursday, it was announced that the federal government had approved giving $3 billion in federal funding to build the new Hudson River Railroad Tunnel.  Here is the link to the full story as reported in the Star Ledger:

http://www.nj.com/starledger/stories/index.ssf?/base/news-12/1231997169199520.xml&coll=1

It took me awhile to think about this, since some of the claims made did not make any sense, in light of the information that I had posted a few days ago.  At that time, the claim was made that 4,000 jobs would be created for the $8.7 billion that would be spent on this Choo-Choo tunnel.  If you did the math, each job would be created for $2,175,000.00 per job, or $310,000.00 per year over the seven year period estimated that the construction would take. Now, the claim is made that this project will create 40,000 to 50,000 jobs!  Well, lets do the math again.  If we can get 50,000 jobs, that would be $174,000.00 per job, or $24,857.00 per year of the project.  Now, that sounds great except for the fact that no construction worker in New Jersey would do the job for about 25 thousand a year.  so it seems that the 40,000 to 50,000 is just not a real figure on job creation.  Also, think about this, 50,000 is about the same amount of people who would fill Giants stadium.  Where are all of these people going to be working around this tunnel?

Another selling point being used to justify this project is the premise that 22,000 cars will be removed from the road because the drivers (and passengers) will start taking the train to work in New York City and spend their money there.  Well, if we divide 22,000 into $8.7 billion it will cost $395,455.00 per car to remove them from the roads leading to New York City.  That does not seem to be a good investment to me!  If this number is right, lets do another calculation.  If each car has one driver and three passengers, that would be four new passengers for the Choo-Choo Tunnel.  This would be about $100,000.00 per passenger cost.  Now, if the average Choo-Choo train fare was $10.00 round trip, and each person used the train 250 times per year, it would take 40 years to just obtain the fares to pay for the tunnel alone!

Give me a break, this whole Choo-Choo train tunnel idea is just one large pork-barrel project to appease the union construction workers and pay for play construction companies!  Plus, the $8.7 billion is what they want to borrow for these projects.  It does not include the interest that will have to be paid for the bonds that will be needed to actually get their hands on the money needed for this project.  Why not keep the New Jersey money, about $3 billion, and spend it to make New Jersey a more favorable place for companies to locate and create jobs here?

To Governor Stupidhead, our lunatic Senators and all of the other idiots in Washington D.C. and Trenton, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

A Billion

Sometimes after going through all of the spam, an email will really hit you, here is one example:

How many zeros in a billion???
 
This is too true to be funny…
 
The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending YOUR tax money.
 
 
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of it’s releases.
 
 
A.
 
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
 
B.
 
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
 
C.
 
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
 
 
D.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
 
 
E.
 
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes,
at the rate our government is spending it.
 
 
While this thought is still fresh in our brain…
let’s take a look at New Orleans ….
 
It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
 
 
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D)
is presently asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS
to rebuild New Orleans .. Interesting number…
what does it mean?
 
 
 
A.
Well… if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman, and child) you each get $516,528.
 
B.
Or… if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
 
 
C.
Or… if you are a family of four…your family gets $2,066,012.
 
 
Imagine, $700 billion bailing out banks in the US. 

That’s enough to fund complete medical care for every man, woman and child currently alive in the US for 11 years!!
50 billion to bail out the auto industry???   Washington , D.C. & Ottawa ON.
 
HELLO!!! >
Are all our calculators broken??

and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
 
 
We had absolutely no national debt…
We had the largest middle class in the world..
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
 
 
What happened?
Can you spell ‘politicians! ‘
 
 
And I still have to press ‘1’  for English.
 
 
I hope this goes around the US & CANADA at least 1 billion times
 
 
What the heck happened???
To Governor Stupidhead and all of the other idiots in Trenton, I can give you a billion reasons why you have to go, but come November, the purge will begin, in the meantime, just remember; “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Can’t any democrate keep a promise?

Remember back this spring, when Rep.  Rob Andrews, (D-Haddon Heights) ran in the democratic primary for senator against Senator Frank (what’s my name) Lautenberg?  After Robby lost the primary, he said he would not be running to retain his house seat this November.  Well, he has had a change of heart and now has declared he will be running.  My question to him is, “What happened, did you find out you would have to get a real job?”

This is just another example of a democrate that cannot keep their word!  Think it is going to be any different with the rest of them?

To all the idiots in Trenton, and also Washington, DC “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Exposing the liars!

A few weeks ago, Bill (No Drill) Pascrell, another Pelosi flunky, wrote a letter to the editor of our local newspaper.  In it, he told his faithful constituents all of the great things he was doing to help them during this energy crisis.  Of course I felt that these people should know both sides and let them decide where the truth lay.  Here is my response to Billy’s letter, which was published today:

In regards to: Rep. Bill Pascrell’s letter of August 27th.

To the Editor

Community News

12-38 River Road

Fair Lawn, NJ 07410

 

To the Editor:

 

Recently you published a letter written by Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D) Eighth Congressional District of New Jersey.  In that letter, Rep. Pascrell tried to defend his and his party’s inactions to truly allow the United States of America to become independent of foreign energy supplies.  Besides reciting nothing more than the tired party platform of House Speaker Pelosi, many of his “facts” are just plain not true.

 

Rep. Pascrell position on off-shore drilling shows both his and the democrats lack of knowledge on this issue.  Right off the coast of southern California, in the Santa Barbara Channel, a huge oil formation is present and could be delivering “American” crude oil to the refineries in that area in less than one year!  Proven oil fields off of both coasts of Florida could be on-line in two years.  In fact, the Cubans have contracted with China to develop these fields themselves.   Why shouldn’t Americans be the beneficiary of this source of crude oil?  Drilling in ANWR, which would only require a very small footprint in the reserve, could be adding its own contribution to America’s energy needs in less than five years, using the already existing Alaskan pipeline.  These oil fields are already mapped and researched, unlike the 311 million acres that have been leased in the last few years.  Also, by drilling off-shore or in ANWR, the oil companies are not subjected to additional legal hassling by every Tom, Dick and John environmental group that wants to protect imaginary environmental problems. They can do what they do best, get oil for all Americans, while then researching supplies in these areas and developing the necessary protocols to retrieve that oil when they find it.

 

Over two thirds of the citizens in New Jersey want off-shore drilling now.  Is not the job of a “Representative” to represent the will of the people who have given him that job?

 

The argument about drawing from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve defeats the very purpose of the reserve, which was to be able to supply up to 90 days of oil if crude oil supplies were cut off from foreign sources.  This supply would allow the country to defend itself, while insuring that its citizens would not freeze, and the economy would not grind to a halt.  It never was intended to be used for election year pandering.

 

Using arguments like “increased automobile fuel economy standards” only transfers the problem from congress to an already depressed domestic auto manufacturing sector.   Also conveniently left out of Rep. Pascrell’s arguments is that of very small (fuel efficient) automobiles survivability while traveling  the interstate highway system with the ever larger and heavier trucks that currently populate them.

 

The last paragraph of Rep. Pacrell’s letter just has to be rearranged to show what the elected representatives of this country are currently doing; America is in the middle of a serious energy emergency that is being used by opportunistic political entities to advance individual agendas.  Political gimmickry and partisan politics are now being used for personal gain at the expense of the American public.

 

Instead of condescending statements like this; “I will continue working in Congress to harness America’s innovative spirit and forge an energy future with the best interest of this nation’ economy and environment in mind”, as a harbinger to the November elections, maybe he should start to listen to the simple, practical solutions that the citizens of both his district and his state have already reached, Drill Here, Drill Now!
