Update on School Prayer in New Jersey

Talk about a bunch of gutless wonders!  The United States Supreme Court latest decision not to hear the case of the football coach, at a New Jersey High School, who just wanted a moment of silent reflection before a game shows just how far to the left this country has turned!   What are these idiots thinking about?

Just last week we learned that the Wayne, New Jersey public school system has made special arrangements so Muslim children can interrupt class time and pray in school.  Of course no special arrangements have been for Catholic children.  Jewish children have not been given any special place to pray.  The Baptistchildren will just have to suck it up and not pray.  Protestant kids, not a chance at prayer.  Nope, just the Muslim children.

So here are the new rules for praying in the state of New Jersey.  If you are a coach of a sports team, you better not be found bowing your head to ask that the children under your leadership not be hurt while participating in athletic competition.   No matter what sport you are coaching, what values you are teaching or the spirit of achievement you are trying to instill into the youth under your tutelage will make no difference to us.  Just make sure you are not praying!

Of course, we do have a slightly different set of rules for the Muslim coaches.  If you are the coach of the local Al-Qaeda youth suicide squad, you can pray.  You can pray that your young bombers will kill as many of the infidels as possible.  You can pray that the result of these bombings will be the death of many woman and children.  You can pray that your “athletes” will be rewarded with their 72 virgins.  You can pray that your efforts will result in the extermination of all Jewish people. 

To all of the idiots in Trenton, why can’t at least one of you stand up and be heard on this issue?  Don’t one of you have a set of balls?  Well, just remember, come November, we are going to get rid of you cowards, but until then, don’t forget, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Should Muslims Be Allowed To Pray In Public Schools?

What, the only religion that can pray in public schools are Muslims!

You want mad, now I am really mad! Check this out, the only people who can pray in school now are Muslims! Read this about Wayne, NJ:WAYNE — Four students knelt on a classroom floor during lunch at the Albert Payson Terhune Elementary School today and performed the afternoon Muslim prayer ritual.
It was the first time the students had prayed in the school during school hours. And it may end a controversy over what arrangement the district should make to ensure the children’s constitutionally protected right to exercise their religion during school hours.

 

School parent Rola Awwad has been seeking a private place for her 10-year-old son, Adam, to pray in school since the fall. The district offered to let him pray at recess — either outside or in classroom while his classmates are there. At first, Awwad called the offer “unacceptable,” and the situation attracted attention from Muslim advocates who suggested bringing the issue to the state for resolution.

But Adam decided on his own to pray at lunch, Awwad said. He joined three friends today in a classroom with other students present. They performed the ritual in the back of a room.

“If it continues like this, it will be very nice,’’ Awwad said.

She said her 7-year-old daughter, Amana, also prayed in her second grade class, and she thanked the teacher for the arrangement.

Her son had worried other students would make fun of him if they watched him pray, but schools Superintendent John Sico Jr. assured her the district wouldn’t let that happen. As the students prayed, classmates played games, he said.

Sico said he consulted the Imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County and felt he received support for his position.

Imam Mohammad Qatanani told The Record he had had a good talk with Sico and will meet with Mrs. Awwad today “to understand the issue from her side more.”

“As far as I am concerned the issue is resolved,’’ Sico said. “We did the right thing. The kids did the right thing. No one was making fun.’’

Afsheen Shamsi, spokeswoman for the Council on American Islamic Relations, which has intervened with the district on Awwad’s behalf said the accommodation was a correct step.

“It’s a question of finding the right balance and making sure the student is comfortable and the district is comfortable,’’ she said.

She said CAIR had considered bringing the issue before the state Board of Education. But Awwad said she wants to wait and see if the accommodation continues to work for her children.

All students are constitutionally guaranteed the right to pray during the school day as long as it doesn’t interfere with learning. Muslims pray five times a day to reaffirm their faith and submit to follow divine commandments. The prayer is said during prescribed times; in the fall, when clocks roll back at the end of daylight savings time, the afternoon prayer must be said during the school day, Awwad explained.

Federal guidelines say schools can’t prevent students from praying during school, but they can’t sponsor religious activities or lead students in prayer. For instance, those guidelines specifically mention a student’s right to quietly read the Bible during lunch. But they are not clear on what action to take when the religious expression is more demonstrative, as it is in Adam’s case….

How about the Catholic children, Jewish children, Protestant children? What, you have to be a member of religion that encourages it’s members to kill non-believers? We bend over for these people to pray while our children are denied this basic right?  Where the crap is the ACLU? What the hell is this country coming to? What a joke!

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!”

New Jersey number one again!

An article in the Wall Street on Monday discussed property tax rates.  In the article, was a small chart that listed the states with the highest property taxes as a share of income.  Guess which state was number one?  Give up?  Well, once again the State of New Jersey leads the nation!  With a median property tax of $6,082.00, taxes as a percentage of income are 7.1%!  Now get this, the next state on the list is New Hampshire at 6.0% ($4,390.00 median property tax).  Well, the good people of New Hampshire are almost in revolution state over this, even though they do not have any income tax, sales tax, and their total tax burden on a state level rates them as the fifth lowest in the country.  Heck, if they are mad in New Hampshire over their property taxes, the citizens of New Jersey should be ballistic at their property tax load!  It’s about time that the citizens of New Jersey start to get out the torches, get the tar nice and hot, load up on plenty of feathers and show these tax and spend idiots that we will not take it any more!

For all the idiots at every level of government in New Jersey, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

What are they teaching in math courses now?

Gary (triple dipping) Schaer, assemblyman for the 36th district and both mayor and councilman in Passaic has introduced A1943, a bill that would establish a pilot program fot the teaching of personal finance in high school.  This would be an “unfunded mandate” on all schools in the state in the end.  Now, teaching personal finance is a worthy objective, but my question is “What the hell are they teaching in math classes today?”  I remember many a class devoted to percentages, interest, compounding, etc.  Have the liberal teachers and administrators removed this from the curriculum? 

High School was always the place that one was suppose to be prepared to enter the world.  What are we paying these teachers, principals, superintendents and others for if they are not delivering the minimum education for our children.  A basic understanding of money should have been part of the math program, not just at the high school level, but at all levels of the school system!  It is not something that should have to be “mandated” by a schmuck like Schaer! 

All citizens in New Jersey are being taxed to death to provide school systems that only reward the administrators and teachers with outlandish salaries, pensions and benefits.  For this, we currently have a third world education system.  Wonder how I know this?  Just take a look at all of the graduates of this system who are in hock up to their necks in mortgages and loans that they cannot possibly repay! 

To all the idiots who are running the schools in New Jersey who need a schmuck like Gary (triple dipper) Schaer to tell them the obvious, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

VOTE FOR THE HERO, NOT THE ZERO!

Another raping of taxpayers by an Abbott District and Corzine

Well kids, Newark has a new superintendent, Clifford Janey, and guess what, he is going to be the highest paid superintendent in New Jersey, with a yearly salary of $301,000.00!  To add injury to insult, this contract has been approved by the big idiot himself, Jon (do as I say, not as I do) Corzine.  Yes kids, the same Jon Corzine who promised to deal with the ridiculous contracts that these superintendents are receiving in this state.  but, let’s dive a little bit farther into this contract and who it is being given to, one Clifford Janey.

Janey is being cited as having an extensive resume, including being superintendent of schools in Rochester, NY and Washington, DC.  Let’s have a look at these assignments.

He was the superintendent of schools in Rochester, but what is really interesting is how he left, how about this for a left out fact:

“When Rochester let him go, he was given a $260,800 separation agreement (that’s nearly half the amount of the entire RCSD’s budget for one year!) & a commitment that keeps school board members from saying nasty, if truthful, things about his competence.”

He was let go in Rochester in 2002, and the school board had a gag order to prevent them from telling exactly how bad this guy was running their school system.  Wow, what a resume builder that is, but that is only the top of the iceberg.  Let’s look at Washington, DC:

“The bureaucrats in the District of Columbia have given Doctor Clifford Janey the boot from his post as Superintendent of the schools there, effective immediately.”

“They liked the job he did SO much, they’ve eliminated not only him but also the position of Superintendent!”

“His current contract with Washington, D.C. runs for another two years. At $274,000 plus a $25,000 bonus, this man Janey is one lucky guy. Sweet! (Yes, he’s getting a bonus for 2006-2007 while being fired!) ”

Janey was superintendent in Washington DC for a little less than three years, and he gets fired again!  Just more padding for the resume.  It seems that what this fellow does best is getting fired and collecting huge settlements.

So this is what Corzine and the other clowns in Trenton think we should be spending our Abbott District funds on; a person who is a failure in all of his professional endeavors, to lead the largest, failing school district in the state!   And is there any wonder why this state is on the brink of economic disaster?

To all of the idiots in Trenton, “IT’S TAXES STUPID!”

It’s Abbott District Time Again

As promised, here is a continuation of the Abbott District spending of the 4 billion dollars that the state of New Jersey has borrowed, without voter approval.  Tonight we will look at the City of Passaic.

Some of you might know, that Passaic has had a spate of recent “events” for the lack of another word.  It’s mayor Samuel Rivera has resigned, after pleading guilty to accepting bribes (like that is new in Passaic County) and faces 18 to 24 months in prison.  The city “a self-declared sanctuary city for illegal aliens” tells federal authorities to take a hike in trying to prevent illegal aliens from staying in the country.  An finally we have Gary Schaer, the double dipping politician who is both mayor (had been a councilman) and assemblyman for Passaic and praises the borrowing of 4 billion dollars without voter approval, because he believes it is the right thing to do.  When you hear the numbers, you would think the same thing.

Passaic is lined up to receive $213,967,126 for the building of four schools.  One middle school, one elementary school, one early childhood center and one “new” early childhood center.  Gary “double dipping” Schaer is bring almost a quarter of a billion dollars to the city he is mayor of.  This amount of money is almost 5% of the total amount that is being borrowed.  No wonder he is for borrowing this money.  He is winning, while the taxpayers are losing!  And who is going to benefit from these new schools, illegal aliens!  Yes, illegal aliens, and how do we know this, because you cannot ask them if they are here legally. 

So folks, here is another example of your money being wasted.  Mad yet, I know I am!  More to follow over the coming weeks, so stay tuned. 

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