More folks are starting to agree with me on Chris Christie

Back on April 4th, I wrote a post about Chris Christie and his little problem with no-bid contracts.  Well, today the Star Ledger has an editorial on the same subject.  Guess what guys?  Yup, they agreed with me, completely!  But, don’t take my word for it, read the editorial yourself:

Hey Chris, maybe you like to give out those “no bid” contracts to your friends and people who help your brother, but never forget one thing; “IT’S TAXES, STUPID”!

Chris Christie’s Ethics Problems

It might be a good idea for you folks to check this site out.  I think it will enlighten you in regards to Chris “Mr. Clean” Christie.

http://christieiscorrupt.com/

Before Christie makes promises to clean up Trenton, he should look at cleaning up his own place.

Hey Chris, and all of the idiots in Trenton, it would be nice if you kept your place clean of crap like this, but until we can get a wholesale change in November, never forget, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID”!

A Question of Principles

In the past few weeks, it has once again been revealed that while he was the  United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey, Chris Christie  gave no-bid contracts to personal and business friends.   These were not just your run of the mill government contracts, but rather multimillion dollar contracts.  One of the contracts given out went to his former “boss” in the federal government, former Attorney General, John Ashcroft.  This contract was for $52 million dollars!  Another one went to an “old” friend’s law firm.  This contract was for over $3 million dollars. 

Although Ashcroft has not contributed, at least yet, to Chris Christie’s gubernatorial campaign, the “old” friend’s law firm partners have made the maximum contributions for themselves and also for their wives.  The old friend has also, along with his wife, made the maximum contribution too.  Now, because this occurred while he was working for the federal government , and the contract was given out before the contribution was made, it is not illegal under the Pay-to-Play laws.  In fact, I wish to now coin another phrase in politics though, the “Play-then-Pay” scheme.  Let me have the contract now, then later on, I will contribute to any political campaign you might enter in the future.   Sounds like the perfect way to get around the Pay-to-Play laws.

One problem I have had with the anointing of the savior, Chris Christie, by the Republican leadership in New Jersey, is the lack of insight into the man’s true feelings and principles.  Because of this, we have to dig into his past political positions and see how they compare with his more recent practises.  Well, one item jumps out like a stop light on the road of moral discipline.  Back when Chris Christie was a Morris County freeholder for two years (his only political position ever) his only real contribution was to place in effect a policy to require three bids on all county contracts, even no-bid contracts!  Since this was prior to his appointment as a U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, it shows that he flip flopped on his commitment to protect the interests of taxpayers.  if this is what he did when he was the top federal government lawman in the state.  If now  wnat to hide technical legalities to defend his actions, really calls into question his principles.  This I believe is a very disturbing look at the man who promises to “clean up Trenton”!

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??

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY???
 
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago…
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!”

How much for that job!

Hi kids!  Remember how we use to talk about the Abbott Districts and the stupidity of that spending?  Well, we now have one that makes that program almost look good!  Do you know what it is called?  Well, it is the plan to build another railroad tunnel under the Hudson River.  Of course that does not sound cool, so let’s think up another name for it, how about “The Governor Stupidhead hole in the ground to throw taxpayers money into”!  I know, it is a little long, and if someone has a better name, please get back to me with it.  Until then, let’s call it for short, “Stupidhead’s Pit”.

Now many of you have read about the jobs that will be created by this project, right?  A number that has been thrown out is 6,000 jobs!  Wow, that sure sounds like a lot of jobs!  But let’s remember something, this tunnel is suppose to cost 8.7 billion dollars.  Now if you went to an Abbott district school, we will forgive you if you cannot do this math, but if you divide 6,000 into 8.7 billion dollars, you will know that each job will cost $1,450,000.00!  I know that union construction workers are expensive, but for this job, they must be hiring from Tony Soprano’s workhall.

Is this something that we can really afford in New Jersey?  Why should we be spending this money just to make it easier for people to get to New York City and make their economy stronger?  If we need another method of mass transportation under the Hudson River, just convert the third tube of the Lincoln Tunnel into a light rail line and run it to the 41st street bus terminal, but let’s get this idea of this tunnel off the table, and replace it with business tax cuts that will generate real wealth, and stop the rape of the taxpayer in New Jersey!

To Governor Stupidhead and the other idiots in Trenton, the clock is ticking so line up your next jobs now, because we are taking the capital back in November and returning back to the citizens of New Jersey.  Until then though, just remember, IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

This is going to hurt

I am sure that most of you are aware that Governor Stupidhead unveiled an aggressive plan to reduce “Greenhouse Gas Emissions” in New Jersey.  It is simple, Stupidhead’s administration will tell you what type of cars you will drive, where and when development will occur and how electricity is produced.  In other words, Comrade Stupidhead will be dictating how you live your life!

But, he has not told you how much this will cost you.  Want a ballpark estimate?  A back of the napkin, round figure is a minimum of $8,000 per family of four!  Just remember, you will pay more for yourelectric power, gasoline (if he will let you have it), oil, food (it’s trucked kids), paper, coffee, etc.  Get the idea?  Every damn thing you now purchase will be jacked up in price (along with more sales tax) because of an idiot idea being passed around about carbon emissions!  Global warming is a myth and more and more of the world scientists are proclaiming just that.  But, Comrade Stupidhead does not care about that at all, because the all wise idiot knows best!

Come November, have you bags packed  Comrade Stupidhead because you are going out with the trash, but until then just remember “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Getting rewarded for illegal activities

After 18 months and god knows how much money being spent, a Blue Ribbon Panel established by Governor Stupidhead will give it’s findings and recommendations regarding ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Now I have capitalized ILLEGAL ALIENS, because that is what they are, not “undocumented immigrants.”  Calling ILLEGAL ALIENS “undocumented immigrants”, is like calling a burglar an uninvited house guest.  It is stupid and shows the person using the expression to be an ignorant idiot.

Well, we will have to wait until Governor Stupidhead returns from Iraq, where I am sure the thought of fragging his sorry butt has crossed the minds of some of our brave citizen/solders who are protecting us all from the scum Islamic terrorists that infest the world.  Alas though, some of the recommendations that the panel will suggest be implemented have been leaked to the public, and it is enough to make one explode in anger.  Let’s take a look at a few of them.

How about a “Driving Privilege Card”?  Under New Jersey law, ILLEGAL ALIENS are forbidden from obtaining driving licenses.  The logic behind this is that an ILLEGAL ALIEN could not drive a car legally in New Jersey.  No kidding Sherlock!  Why do we have laws, if we are not going to enforce them?  Of course, these liberal bozo’s could just call any ILLEGAL ALIENS who are pulled over by the police and cannot produce a driver’s license “UNDOCUMENTED DRIVERS!”

Hey, think that is good, how about these idea, let’s give all ILLEGAL ALIENS the ability to go to any state college or university and only have to pay the in-state tuition rate!  Yes, these liberal bozos have come up with yet another way to waste our tax money.  Can you imagine this, a student who is a legal citizen of the United States from any other state would have to pay “out of state tuition”, but any person who just entered this country ILLEGALLY gets rewarded by being allowed to pay in-state tuition! 

Considering all of the budget problems we have in this state now, why are we spending money even discussing this nonsense?  Is this what we expect from our elected officials, new ways to send us to the poor house, by giving benefits to people who are here illegally?  I think not, and you should too!

To all of the clowns on the “Blue Ribbon Panel on Immigrant Policy”, we will be taking urine samples for drug testing.  For all of the idiots in Trenton, the LEGAL citizens of this are coming to replace you in November, but until then, IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Lonegan for Governor

On December 1st, I had the privilege of being present when Steve Lonegan announced his candidacy for governor of New Jersey on the Republican ticket.  Steve is well known in the state for being a Reagan Republican of the highest degree.  He has never changed on his platform of minimum government and lower tax rates to insure that the citizens of New Jersey have the highest living standards possible.

Although I agree with Steve on the matter of less government and lower taxes, I do feel that one more item has to be included in his platform to insure that all of the citizens of New Jersey will benefit from his future term as governor of this state.  This last platform item which would complete a triad of issues, is namely crime and it’s effect on the urban areas of this state.  The inner cities of New Jersey are at a critical state in terms of crime and it’s impact on the residents of these areas. 

Ronald Reagan, in 1980 ran on the premise of smaller government, lower taxes and national defense.  His wisdom to confront the communists, while trying to reduce government spending and programs should serve as a blueprint for any conservative running for office in this day and age.  Steve Lonegan would be wise to look at the situation that is present in our inner cities, namely the influx of criminal gangs and the terrorist effect that they have on these areas.  He should pledge to, on day one of his administration, to declare these gangs terrorist organizations and treat them as we would treat Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah or any of the other foreign terrorist scum that currently breed in this world.  These domestic terrorists should be arrested under the Patriot  Act and interned at a base like Fort Dix.  We cannot let any of the citizens of New Jersey be terrorized any place in New Jersey.  If we want to see New Jersey flourish again, we must make sure that our cities are positioned to share in the results.  By attacking and destroying this cancer known as gangs that vision can be insured.

Steve Lonegan has my total backing to be the next governor of what will again be the great State of New Jersey.  But until then, for all of the idiots in Trenton, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”
