Will the Last Person to Leave New Jersey Please Lock the State House Doors.


Your O mighty Tax Dollar  at Work!

I recently noticed that more and more House For Sale signs are going up and that many who had moved in only a year ago or less are already putting up their homes for sale. What is happening? My guess is that people are fed up with all the taxes, be it the high property taxes or the so-called non-tax items like the raising of fees that are being proposed in the legislature.

Are we the people of New Jersey just seen as a source of revenue by the legislature? We should be seen as the people who they represent and do our bidding. In this case most of us want the high cost of taxes, including fees, to be reduced. Our representatives should be looking into cutting costs across the board. The system is broken right now and needs to be fixed or it will fail those who it serves. Without an adequate and fair system of taxation this state will slowly die off. The people coming in are not in the same income bracket as those who have elected to leave and can not afford to pay the same high level of taxes as those that have leaving. It seems that some of those elected officials do not see this reality, but only envision an electorate that they can keep milking without let up.

This is very hard for me to talk about, but I am going to let you the reader know what is happening to me. May it never happen to you!

I will not bore you with all of the details, at least not this early on. What is happening is that I am being forced out of my home because I owe property taxes to my township which I can not pay. Notice I said can not pay and did not say would not pay. Because I very much want to be in good standing and not a deadbeat. It has bothered me from the beginning, August 2013, that I did not have the monies to pay what I am obligated to.

September 11th a Day of Terror


Today is September 11th, a day when the evil of Al Qaeda reared its head. The day when the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City were hit by two Commercial Airliners filled with innocent victims who died.  For what… hatred of our way of life. They also flew a commercial airplane into the Pentagon and damaged it, while killing many on the ground and in the aircraft. A fourth plane failed to reach its target, the White House, because the passengers would not let the hijackers win and they died as heroes in a field in Pennsylvania.
