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”!

Three Top Spots for New Jersey

I have been meaning to get this up on the site for a few days.  In the March 2nd. issue of Forbes Magazine, I found out that New Jersey is now number one in a very interesting category, Property Taxes!  Yes guys, three New Jersey counties lead the list of counties in the United States with the highest property taxes.  The winners are as a percentage of homeowner income:

Passaic County:  8.5%

Union County:    8.1%

Essex County:    8.1%

Just so you also know who rounds out the top five, the fourth and fifth place go to:

Nassau County, NY:  8.0%

Westchester County, NY: 7.8%

So once again, when it comes to taxes, New Jersey is NUMBER 1!

To all of the idiots in Trenton, the citizens in New Jersey like to be number one, but not in this category.  We will be number come November though, when we become the number one state for throwing bums out of office.  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.

Wow, what a plan from Governor Stupidhead Corzine!

It has always been said, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”!  Nothing could be truer when it comes to the current financial situation in New Jersey, and the reaction of Governor Stupidhead to it. 

The Governor’s solution to these problems does not include things like reining in the outrageous union contracts the state is forced to pay.  It does not include eliminating departments and programs that duplicate efforts that are already addressed by the national programs (ie. DEP vs. EPA).  No, Governor Stupidhead is taking the really tough course, he is putting on his knee pads, and will be asking for $4.3 billion from the Economic Stimulus Scam!  What a gutless wonder we have for a Governor!

Hey Governor Stupidhead, we are coming for you in November, so start packing up your knee pads, your Rolodex of socialist friends because we will be giving your walking papers.  Until then, you and the other idiots in Trenton should never forget, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

The New School Bonds

Have you heard the latest radio ads for the   “The New Jersey Economic Development Authority, School Facilities Construction Program?”  These are the bonds that Governor Stupidhead and the other idiots in Trenton are issuing that will result in another $4 billion of debt.  But, before you run out to buy these bonds, you better read this first:

What is a New Jersey Appropriation-Backed Bond?
Appropriation-Backed bonds are issued by a New Jersey Independent Authority (for example, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority or the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority).  Appropriation-Backed bonds are used for various projects including school construction, road construction, and facilities for individuals with special needs.  Appropriation-Backed bonds are secured by payments received by the Independent Authority from the State pursuant to a contract, lease or other agreement between the State and the Independent Authority in which the State agrees to make payments equal to the debt service and other costs relating to the bonds. However, such payments are subject to appropriation from time to time by the New Jersey State Legislature and the State Legislature has no legal obligation to make such appropriations. Appropriation-Backed bonds are not general obligations of the State.

What they are saying is that we the people of New Jersey do not have to pay them back!  Now considering how much debt we have incurred lately in this state, the prospect of actually defaulting could be pretty high. 

For all of the idiots in Trenton, bankruptcy is not out of the question in this state, but until we can clean house and get our accounts back in order next November, just remember, “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??

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!”

Numbers just don’t add up!

Last Sunday in the opinion section of the Bergen Record, this article was published describing the “future” of the Meadowlands:

http://www.northjersey.com/opinion/moreviews/A_new_day_in_the_Meadowlands.html

Since this opinion was written by Robert Ceberio, who is the executive director of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, I would expect it to be very bias, but I could not believe how stupid it could be.  One statement in fact really stands out, Robert wrote the following:

“By 2028, the 14-town Meadowlands District will be generating, just from renewable energy sources, 30 or 40 megawatts of power. You’ll drive down the turn­pike between exits 15W and 16W, and the solar panels and the wind turbines will have become such a part of life that you won’t even notice them.”

Wow, 30 to 40 megawatts of power, that’s is, wait that is nothing!  Just to give you an idea how that amount of power is so irrelevant, just across the river from the Meadowlands, in Jersey City is the Hudson Generating plant of PSEG.  This plant has two boilers, capable of producing 991 megawatts of power, which use both coal and oil.  This is 25 times the amount that Robert describes producing 20 years from now.  Of course, in 20 years we will have more people living here, unless everyone has moved out because of excessive taxes, who will need more and more electricity in order to maintain their lifestyle.  Now you should also know, even though we have generating plants like Hudson, Bergen, Mercer, etc.  this area still has to import power from outside the area.   This isthe reason that PSEG is going to have to build new transmission lines and why there is an ongoing outcry on where they should be built.

30 or 40 megawatts of power will not even help us to keep up with the increase in power demand in New Jersey.  We will have to build new generating facilities in this area that use conventional fuel sources that produce power when we need it.  If we hope to have a robust and viable economy in the future, New Jersey must not be lead by irrational nutcases, but by enlightened leaders who will have the internal fortitude to see that our basic energy needs are covered for the coming decades.

To Governor Stupidhead and the other nutcases in Trenton, start preparing for the exodus in November, but until then, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Australia experts rethinking CO2 regulations

I posted about the costs of Governor Stupidhead’s greenhouse gas regulation dream.  Well kids, Australia, which already has CO2 limitations in place is now realizing how stupid it is.  Check this link for ICSC advisor Robert M. Carter, PhD, Professor, Marine Geophysical Laboratory, James Cook University, Townsville, Australia opinion on the subject:

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,24820742-7583,00.html

Maybe it is about time we listened to people like this, instead of the idiots that infest Trenton and Washington D.C.

To Governor Stupidhead and all of the idiots in Trenton, the only controllable source of hot air are you idiots!  We are coming to shut you up in November, but until then, 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!”
