Slightly to the Right in New Jersey

Conservative comments on New Jersey

Chris Christie, from nothing to 51 ways to fix New Jersey in less than three months. (Final 11)

Well, let’s finish up our analysis of Chris Chrisitie’s 51 ways to fix New Jersey.  Hopefully, we can find a few ways that Chris can actually make happen, since up to now, it seems he can’t keep his word on most of these promises.  So getting right to it, here are the last eleven ways:

  • 41. I will eliminate special interest labor union giveaways that increase spending and taxes by ending the use of project labor agreements, which drive up the cost of public construction projects and fail to deliver a public benefit at a time when the economy is shedding jobs and taxpayers are struggling to make ends meet.  Once again, Chris makes a promise here that does not make a lot of sense.  First off, look at the last part of the promises, will he only eliminate these special labor union giveaways when the economy is bad?  Hey Chris, how about when the economy is good?  Further, will you have to have the legislature pass laws that will allow the use of non-union workers on state contracts?  Chris, please explain this promise so we can understand exactly what you want to do here.
  • 42. I will save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars and expedite key projectsby utilizing innovative procurement methodologies like Design/Build/Operate/Maintain (DBOM).  Wow, save “hundreds of millions of dollars” !  Now that sounds like a real plan.  But, before going further, do you really know what DBOM is?  Design, Build, Operate and Maintain is a great idea, but not one that is possible in most government contracts for capital projects.  Let’s just use one simple area of state expenditures to show how silly this concept is, highways.  Designing a highway is a cooperative effort between the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the contractor who will actually build the project.  Of course building the project is the contractor’s responsibility, with the over site of DOT.  When the road is finally built, no contractor will “operate or maintain” the highway, since this is not their business.  They just are not equipped for this kind of business.  The responsibility for the operation and maintenance will go to DOT, since this is the reason this department exists.  Once again, can you give us an example of where you would apply DBOM and just how you came up with “hundreds of millions of dollars” of savings.
  • 43. I will eliminate the Legislature’s conflicts of interest by strengthening ethics laws to require State Legislators to either recuse themselves from legislative actions that affect their private sector interests, or publicly disclose these conflicts when they occur.  I think you better go back and study how democratic government works.  The governor cannot strengthen ethics laws, that is only something that can be done by the assembly and senate.  You might suggest that they pass those types of laws, but this is another promise you cannot keep.
  • 44. I will fully eliminate dual office-holding by our State’s elected officials by proposing immediate changes to state law.  Once again, this is a promise you can’t keep, since YOU cannot eliminate dual office-holding, only the assembly and senate can do that.  Of course, you can suggest that our elected officials pass a law like that, but that is all. 
  • 45. I will ban the practice of dual public employment, whereby one person holds a full-time government job while also holding a salaried, elected position. This is one item, that I believe is not just unconstitutional, but also un-american.  If a person has a job like police officer, fireman, teacher, department of public works employee, why should they not be allowed to exercise their constitutional rights and run for office.  Why can’t a police officer also be a school board member?  How about a teacher also being a town council member?   These elected offices do carry small stipend or salary, but to deny  a person their constitutional rights only because they are public employees, is just plain wrong!  What should be proposed though, is an elected official cannot then become a public employee in any position in which they would have authority over in their elected office, without first resigning from that office.  For example, a member of the school board, could not become a teacher in that school district until they resigned from the board.  Come on Chris, being a lawyer, you should know better than to step on people’s rights.
  • 46. I will reform New Jersey’s boards and commissions by only appointing those without conflicts of interest, refusing to create boards and commissions where the memberships create new conflicts of interest, and implementing statutory changes (as needed) to remove any current agency members with conflicts of interest.  I do believe this is one thing he can do, since the governor does appoint many members to various boards and commissions.  The only thing I see being an impediment, is the multitude of favors he will owe all of the people who have blindly endorsed him for governor.  Unless there has  been radical changes in how politics are carried out in New Jersey, these appointments are normally given to those who have supported the governor in one way or another.  Only time will tell if Chris will actually keep this promise, since it is one that he could keep.
  • 47. I will hold government officials accountable for their actions by requiring any elected or appointed official convicted of a crime connected to their official position to forfeit their pension benefits.  This promise will require more than Chris holding officials accountable.  Pension benefits are a contractual item.  They can only be modified or denied by negotiation or judicial methods, not by a governor’s whim.  Once again, I feel that this is a promise that Christie won’t be able to keep.
  • 48. I will strengthen our weak “pay to play” laws by eliminating special interest labor union loopholes to ensure labor unions are treated just like any other entities that have contracts with government.  This again is a promise that Christie can’t keep.  Only the assembly and senate can pass a law that would stop this practise.  One has to wonder how much of a chance that would have of passing, since the representatives and senators receive a lot of money from the unions.  One other thing also, will Christie push for a “Play then Pay” law which would prevent accepting campaign money from people who had benefited from contracts that one gave them prior to their seeking office?
  • 49. I will give New Jerseyans a stronger voice in government by amending the State Constitution to create a statewide initiative and referendum process to allow public questions to be placed on the ballot.  Chris, Chris, Chris, listen to what you said, “I will give New Jerseyans a stronger voice” but then you acknowledge that the State Constitution has to be amended.  Again, this is promise you can’t keep.  You can suggest this change be made, but unless the assembly and senate agree to ask for an amendment, this will go no where.
  • 50. I will provide New Jerseyans regularly occurring opportunities to petition for their government for action by amending the State Constitution to include a provision, whereby every 10 years, voters will have the opportunity to convene a popularly-elected Constitutional Convention.  Again, Chris has promised something he cannot deliver!  This would require an amendment to the state constitution.  This can only be done by the assembly and senate, not the governor!  Come on Chris, tell us how you could get this done.
  • 51. I will increase honesty and openness in government by requiring fully search-able and transparent websites for all state and local governments and school districts, providing links to property records and taxes, government payrolls, expenditures, school performance report cards, and other information. All information would be accessible to the public no later than 45 days following the close of each fiscal year.  Once again, here is a promise that he has not chance of keeping, and is just arrogant.  If he wants to do something like this, just stick to the state level.  Let the counties and local governments make their own rules.  The last thing Christie should be worrying about is local government.  In most cases in the state, this level of government is running pretty good, and would run better with less state interference, not more.  Chris, worry about the state, and let local government do what it does best, taking care of the citizens of the towns and cities they serve.

Well, that is a review of the 51 ways that Chris Christie says will fix New Jersey.  The problem I see with them, is that except for a few of them,  most of them are ones that he cannot do a thing about.  Most of them would require new laws, or constitutional amendments.  Others would require larger government, and more expenses, not less.   All of them though, have no example of just what he would do to keep these promises.  One would have more confidence in these promises, if Chris would offer specific examples of items he would change, and just how he would accomplish it.  Well, I for one always want to know if “Promises made” can actually become “Promises kept”.  I guess Chris does not want to have that being held over his head if he should become governor.

Hey Chris Christie, it is great to have 51 ways to fix New Jersey, but don’t ever forget the most important thing of all, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID”!

A radical idea

For awhile, I have been trying to think of ways that all levels of government in New Jersey could reduce the cost of government.  It has not been easy, but I do believe I have a solution that should greatly reduce costs.  The idea is what I call, “The Duplicity in Government Act”.  The idea is really simple, if a department, division, service or group is duplicated at any level of government, the ones that provide the least coverage are eliminated.  I will be posting some of the different groups that I fell should go over the next few weeks, so here is the first one I think we should deal with.

I live in Bergen County, New Jersey.  Bergen County, along with Union County are the only two counties with there own police departments.  Now, don’t get this confused with Sheriff’s departments, which each county has and are responsible for the county courts and jails.  No, these police departments are in addition to the Sheriff’s department.  I now I do know a fair amount about the Bergen County Police department, so I will give you some facts about them.  I am sure that the Union County department is organized along the same lines.

The Bergen County Police Department Headquarters is located in Hackensack.  It’s defined everyday responsibilities are patrolling Rts. 4 and 17.  They will on occasion set up truck checkpoints and might assist when a utility truck is working in the street, but what I have described is about all they do on a daily basis.  Now to be fair, they do have a K-9 unit and SWAT unit, but that is about it folks.

The reason I started here is because every thing they do is duplicated by another police department.  Let’s take the everyday items, patrolling the two major highways in Bergen County, truck checkpoints and utility truck protection (I will have more on this subject at a later date).  Every town that both Route 4 and Route 17 goes through has a police department.  Each town patrols them and responds to any emergencycalls.  Therefore, they are able to react quicker and with more knowledge due to their proximity to the area.  The Bergen County Police Department might react to an emergency call, but will almost always be the last one at the scene.  As far as truck checkpoints, the New Jersey State Police have mobile units, along with the Department of Motor Vehicle to carry out on the spot checkpoints.  Again, not a real reason to have the county police.  Finally, I really call into question this whole idea of having a police car and officer standing around while a utility crew is working on a pole or digging a hole.  All of these crews have cones, barriers and trucks with emergency lights, why do they also need a $100,000+ county police officer standing around?  I should have also warned you, yes, this police officers average more than $100,000 per year, along with all of the benefits like full medical, retirement after 20 years, etc.

One last thing to consider about the Bergen County Police Department, they have convinced the freeholders that they need a new headquarters.  This headquarters has been budgeted at about $60,000,000  and will located on River Road about a block away from the courthouse. 

So what am I trying to prove here?  Well, all of the “responsibilities” that the Bergen County Police Department say they have, are duplicated at other levels.  Street or highway patrol is also done, more effectively by the local town police.  Truck inspection is done by the State Police, why should Bergen County also do it?  SWAT team?  The State Police has multiple SWAT teams around the state that can respond very quickly.  K-9 police?  I don’t know about you, but to save a couple of million dollars, Fido can go.

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!”

Governor Stupidhead’s Pit

The executive director of NJ Transit, Richard F. Sarles, wrote a rebuttal in NJ Voices (NJvoices.com) to an opinion about the Mass Transit Tunnel (MTT), which I now refer to as Governor Stupidhead’s Pit.  In the rebuttal, Sarles talks about how the new tunnel will benefit commuters, another way of saying that the real winner here is New York City.  But, one good thing came out of this, and that is his mentioning of 6,000 construction and related jobs, and a drop in air pollution by taking 22,000 cars off the highways.  This confirmation of these numbers can now lead to a crunching of these numbers and figuring out just what this will cost us.

In industry, it is typical to buy capital improvements with an outlook to getting the total return on investment within 18 months.  The price of this tunnel is calculated to be 9 billion dollars.  If we take the elimination of 22,ooo cars as realistic, it will cost $410,000 to remove each car.  Let’s say for this argument we figure each car has four passengers who will now take the train.  So it will cost $102,500 to for each new passenger who will use this tunnel.  If we assume that each passenger will go to work 250 days per year, then in 18 months he/she will have made 375 round trips.  In order to get an 18 month return on investment, each round trip will have to cost $273.00.  I don’t think anyone is going to pay that price.  Now, lets say the cost of a round trip is $27.00 per, it will take 15 years to pay for the tunnel.  Some might say that is a good deal, but just remember, all of the fare would have to go towards paying for the tunnel, what about the cost of the train?  From my viewpoint, this investment is not that good, and will result in the taxpayers of New Jersey having to subsidise this venture.

Sarles also writes about the jobs that will be created in the construction of this tunnel.  Let’s see how much each job will cost.  As I wrote before, they figure that 6,000 jobs will be created.  If we divide 6,000 into 9 billion dollars, the cost for each job will be $1.5 million.  Now, I don’t know where you come from, but where I come from, that is no bargain at all.

Once again, we do not need this tunnel!  It will only benefit New York City.  The cost of the tunnel can never be recouped, but will have to be subsidised by the taxpayers of New Jersey.  And the idea of creating jobs at $1.5 million per job is just plain stupid!  Why not take the money that New Jersey is suppose to contribute ($3 billion) and spend it to benefit the citizens of New Jersey?

To Richard R. Sarles, Governor Stupidhead, and the other idiots who are trying to force this tunnel down are throats, it is just a plain stupid idea, plus don’t ever 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!”

Governor Stupidhead says we are saved!

Today it was reported that Governor Stupidhead or Governor Corzine to the dem-lite’s, says that New Jersey is close to $4 billion in stimulus money.  Wow, we can now just sit back, have another beer and our worries are over.  And if the stimulus money from the OH-GREAT Wizard of Obama is based on population, New Jersey might even get $6 billion. 

What the hell is Governor Stupidhead trying to sell us here anyway?  This money is nothing but a loan that the United States has to assume.  This kind of fiscal planning is the same crap idea that has swollen the debt owed by New Jersey to $40 billion already and is growing larger by the minute since all of the projected income from the taxes that now make New Jersey the most taxed state in the country are not delivering what the idiots in Trenton thought it would!  And folks, no matter if the debt is owed by New Jersey or by the United States, do you know who really owes the debt?  Look in the mirror, because it is YOU!

Hey Governor Stupidhead, we can see right through what you and the great Obama are doing.  We will take care of one mistake this November and the other in four years, but until that time, 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??
 
Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL License Tax

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!”
