New Jersey’s Economic Growth Among Country’s Worst: New Report
New Jersey’s gross domestic product grew a mere 0.4 percent in 2014, ranking 46th in the nation.

New Jersey’s economy is barely ticking upward, with its growth ranking near the bottom in 2014 – and falling far below the national average.

New Jersey’s gross domestic product grew a mere 0.4 percent in 2014, ranking in a three-way tie for 44th in the nation, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The nation’s real GDP grew 2.2 percent in 2014 after increasing 1.9 percent in 2013.

The state’s growth slowed from previous years, In 2012, the GDP grew 2.5 percent, and in 2013, there was 0.8 percent growth.

The state had the slowest growth of any state in the Mideast region, way behind New York’s 2.5 percent GDP growth.

Gordon MacInnes, president of New Jersey Policy Perspective, a liberal Trenton-based think tank, told NJSpotlight that the state needs to invest more in education, public transit and transportation infrastructure, as well as colleges and universities.

“You can’t create a strong economy and create jobs without a strong foundation,” MacInnes said told the publication.

“Invest” my <synonym for donkey>!

Spending more money — stolen from over taxed residents of the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee — will not spark any type of growth. Except it the taking class of teachers’ unions, other Gooferment unions, politicians, and bureaucrats!!!

Cut the minimum wage.

Cut the corporate and individual tax rates.

Convert Gooferment pensions to 401s like private businesses are doing.

Introduce a meaningful school choice voucher program.

Reduce education expenses by consolidation of the 600+ “school districts” into 21 county ones.

UNWIND the regulatory state.

End the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” and pardon all non-violent drug offenders.

Eliminate property taxes to fund Gooferment Skrules. (Eliminate Gooferment Skrules entirely!)

And, my personal favorite, end the inheritance tax.

THEN watch the Stte become a magnet for people, business, and happiness!

POLITICAL: How Americans perceive “war”

Monday, June 1, 2015

Nazis on the Backlot
How Hollywood has changed our perception of war

*** begin quote ***

Memorial Day used to be a somber occasion, dedicated to reflection and remembrance of those killed in America’s wars. Today it is instead a celebration of ongoing wars, a long shopping weekend and the unofficial start of summer. Part of the problem with America’s shifting perception of the price to be paid when one goes to war is that it has been shaped by Hollywood and video games, so much so that it has become divorced from the horrible reality of what happens when countries and peoples do their best to kill each other.

*** and ***

My point is that when Americans think of war they think of something heroic and relatively painless unless you are somehow electrocuted by your PlayStation. There are no bad consequences arising from stomping on Afghans from a control center in Nevada. And if you screw up and kill a wedding party, so what? I am not advocating a salutary invasion of the United States to create an awareness of just how terrible war is, but a little more creative candor from the media, Hollywood and the political class might just help make the public think twice before it goes into that voting booth to pull the handle for Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush. Or Hillary.

*** end quote ***

“WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.” –Major General Smedley Butler

Gooferment needs war to keep the Crony Capitalists pouring “campaign contributions” into the politicians and bureaucrats.

I have often blamed “giving women the right to vote” for the rise of “organized crime” because they pushed Prohibition and other “Progressive” causes. I add to that they have failed to stop us from going to war so many time. 

“Yes, when we get out of here. We’re going to have to fix that. You know we control something that can get it done. Not the ballot box, but the other box. (A giant sucking sound as pure Miss Marie used that very rude idiom.) We can end war.” — character “Marie” being anti-war in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 1 Page 262

As I’ve aged, I’d like to think I’ve gotten wiser. 

And, one topic of growth is about the wars.

I don’t understand why “We, The Sheeple” can NOT wake up and see the rows of graves and ask “Why?”

You can trace it back to brainwashing, propaganda, and Gooferment Skrules.

It’s rooted in the FED printing press money that allows the Welfare / Warfare state to spend without restraint. (One reason for the FED was so that Gooferment could spend money without having to forcibly extract it from the people.)

SO how do we roll this back and put Gooferment back in avery small cage?

Have to end the FED. Have to end Gooferment Skrules. Have to bring all the girls and boys home now.

Be more like Switzerland.

Secession is the key. Just like the USSR imploded, so to will the USA. 

Argh! Not going to happen in my lifetime.

POLITICAL: The relentless dishonesty of modern Democrats

What’s Behind the Collapse of Baltimore
Sunday, 17 May 2015 10:13 AM
By Newt Gingrich

*** begin quote ***

As Archbishop of Baltimore William Lori points out, the Catholic schools cost $6,000 a year and have a 99 percent graduation rate. Yet the Democrats are committed to locking poor children out of those schools if it takes a dime away from funds for failing, unionized public schools.

With school choice policies, we could save children’s lives while saving money. Instead the left wing unions and bureaucracies ruthlessly exploit children, ruining their lives while the Democratic leadership in the Maryland House blocks school choice bills that would give children a chance to attend better schools and would force schools to compete for students by actually being good schools.

There is no greater example of the relentless dishonesty of modern Democrats than their willingness to destroy children’s lives while blaming others. President Obama could quit blaming Fox News and simply demand school choice (which of course he opposes) and he would radically improve the lives of millions of trapped poor children.

*** end quote ***

I have always liked Newt’s brains. His morals cost him the Presidency.

But read this article and he factually pounds home the immoral, ineffective, and inefficient government by one party.

It’s hard to imagine the lives that have been lost, the possibilities missed, and the trees lost by the terrible Gooferment Skrules.

Further, after ending the Fed, I can’t think of a more important step to improve America than to Separate Education and the State.

We wouldn’t think of the Gooferment running food so why do we let it “ruin” Education and Health Insurance?

POLITICAL: Salman Khan will kill Gooferment Skrules

Khan Academy’s Challenge to State-Certified Educators
By Gary North
July 12, 2014

*** begin quote ***

I have written a lot about Salman Khan and the Khan Academy. I will continue to do so.

Today, I want to talk about what he has done to modern theories of education. For over a century, there has been a mass illusion that has been fostered by beneficiaries of tax money. This money has gone to teachers and educators. This illusion is as follows: state certification necessary to be a good teacher.

*** and ***

It is all a farce. It is summarized by the slogan we have all heard: “He who can, does. He who can’t, teaches. He who can’t teach, teaches teachers.”

*** and ***

Because one man has single-handedly proven that the entire theory of progressive education is wrong, and that you don’t need to have specialized training in order to be a great teacher, other institutions can now get involved. Institutions that are not certified by the educational establishment will be able to provide top-flight educational services. Churches will be able to do this. Charitable groups will be able to do this. I hate to think about it, but inner-city gangs will be able to do this. Anyone who wants to gain a following in the community can do so by offering top-flight educational services free of charge, simply by providing low-cost computers to students, and a minimal place to house them. The state will still regulate square footage, and the teachers’ union will still try to convince people that these alternative routes to education are substandard, but Khan Academy’s success at Oakland Unity High School is proof that an uncertified teacher and his educational program are better than what the inner-city schools, or regular public schools, are capable of providing. That is the affront of the Khan Academy.

*** end quote ***

Maybe this will finally kill Gooferment Skrules and the corruption goes with them (i.e., politicians appoint bureaucrats who “negotiate” with teacher’s union who then make contributions of money and labor to the politicians). It’s incest!

INSPIRATIONAL: Schools kill creativity

Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. 

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

Another “don’t miss” TED talk.

I always criticize Gooferment Skrules because they are immoral, ineffective, and inefficient.

Here’s someone saying that what “school” deliver is not right for the future of humanity.

Can “We, The People” change?

LIBERTY: Cut the mic; go to jail

Monday, June 17, 2013


by KEN KLUKOWSKI 14 Jun 2013, 4:13 AM PDT

*** begin quote ***

Joshua High School officials didn’t just act like a school bully when they turned off a valedictorian’s speech after the speaker mentioned Jesus. They also violated Texas law and the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported that when a Christian valedictorian at Joshua High School referenced his faith in his graduation speech, school officials literally turned the microphone off. The valedictorian has been accepted to the U.S. Naval Academy to become an officer, and Principal Mick Cochran threatened to write a letter to the Navy saying that this young man is of poor character, attempting to persuade the Navy to refuse allowing this talented student to attend.

*** end quote ***

This is wrong on just so many levels. Let’s see if I can point out a few.

Gooferment Skrules — wrong on so many levels.

Valedictorian — agreeing to a set of conditions and then breaking them.

Skrule bureaucrats — redlining speeches. (Guess they have never heard of prior restraint?)

Principal — what a pal; threatening a little kid. (Yeah, if you can’t have sex with them figure out other ways to <synonym for the act of procreation> with their lives.

Christian — going into the military? (Guess he’s got a different interpretation of ‘blessed are the peacemakers’!)

The Navy — why do you want a trouble maker? (Think you can change him?)

Attorney General for the State of Texas — hey, there’s laws being broken! get a posse a go fix it. Or send a Texas Ranger.

Attorney General for the USA — Hey, you remember the First Amendment? Get on it. (Yeah, with the various -gates going on in the District of Corruption, this is chump change.)


Move along all you Sheeple; nothing to see here.

GUNS: “Zero-Tolerance”; “Zero-Sense”

When “Zero-Tolerance” Makes “Zero-Sense”
Posted on June 14, 2013

*** begin quote ***

We’ve been reporting very regularly on ridiculous cases involving over-zealous school officials misinterpreting and wrongly enforcing “zero-tolerance” rules.

In March, we reported on an outrageous case of a seven-year-old Baltimore, Md. student who, according to a March 2, Daily Caller article, was suspended for two days for the nefarious act of shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun. Yes, a breakfast pastry.

According to the young student, he was eating the strawberry pastry during snack time and was biting off pieces in an attempt to shape it into a mountain. Apparently, the teacher thought the student’s handiwork instead looked like a gun, and escorted him to the principal’s office for prompt disciplinary action.

In a recent follow-up story, the Daily Caller reported on more bad news for the young victim of over-zealous school administrators.

*** end quote ***

How dumb are we?

The Sheeple and Clovers don’t get it.

And, the Gooferment Skrules are mindless idiots as well.

There’s a reason that teachers are the lowest rung on the academic ladder.

Those who can do; those who can’t teach; those who can’t teach, teach teaching. Obviously there’s another tier: those who can teach teaching and have no common sense become school bureaucrats!

Why torture children with this type of a system. Remember the Jack in the box model comes from Prussia. The objective was to make cannon fodder for the Army, good factory workers, and a pliable underclass that could be led easily by the elite!

Remind me again where the rich and politicians send their children?
