NEWJERSEY: Murray Sabrin for Senate

10 Reasons to Support Murray Sabrin for Senate
 
1. Dr. Sabrin wants tax credits for charities. Unlike the federal government, charities are more effective at helping those less fortunate in our communities. 

2. Dr. Sabrin has an incredible personal story. He is an immigrant and the son of Holocaust survivors. His father was a WWII hero, a battalion commander in Poland fighting the Nazis for five years.

3. Dr. Sabrin opposes all corporate bailouts. Cronyism isn’t part of the free market; we need an economy that works for everyone not just the insiders on Wall Street. He is the only candidate who wants to audit the Federal Reserve.

4. Dr. Sabrin is the only candidate who wants to restore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Have the other candidates even read the Constitution?

5. Dr. Sabrin is not a politician. Dr. Sabrin is a professor of finance at Ramapo College and has dedicated his life to education.

6. The federal government is now over $21 trillion in debt. Dr. Sabrin wants to end the welfare-warfare state, balance the budget and cut federal spending so we can cut taxes responsibly,

7. Dr. Sabrin cares about the environment. History shows countries with the largest, most unlimited governments like Russia and China also have the most pollution because they don’t protect private property.

8. Murray has been calling for the end of cannabis prohibition for more than 20 years. He wants to finally stop wasting money on putting non-violent offenders in prison.

9. Both Democrats and Republicans have governed America for the past 160 years. We need new thinking in the U.S. Senate – not “group think” that has created the problems we are facing today.

10. Exit polling data proves Libertarians attract as many disenfranchised Democrats as they do Republicans. Libertarians want freedom for all people, not just the politically well connected, and Dr. Sabrin supports policies that protect all human life.

NEWJERSEY: Guv Murphy pushes an insurance company bill

Op-Ed: New Jersey’s Out-of-Network Bill is a huge blow to the middle-class
By PETER DENOBLE, MD

*** begin quote ***

While the A-2039/S-485 bill is complex, in a nutshell it uses a heavy-handed arbitration model to line the pockets of insurance companies while drastically cutting reimbursements to the independent physicians who provide the bulk of emergency care in our state’s 72 emergency rooms.  With far fewer specialists available in your local hospitals, it will make the overpriced benefits of all New Jerseyans worthless, as these doctors will not be available at all hours to cover emergencies such as strokes and traumas.

*** end quote ***

Can these politicians and bureaucrats screw up medical care any more? It’s not about “health”, “health care”, “health care insurance”, or something else anymore. It’s about control!

NEWJERSEY: The Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee races to the bottom?

OPINION 
REVIEW & OUTLOOK
New Jersey’s Business Model
Phil Murphy wants to raise taxes to offer free tuition.
By The Editorial Board
April 6, 2018 6:32 p.m. ET

*** begin quote ***

Herewith the latest installment in our continuing coverage of the race to the bottom between two of America’s most progressive Democratic governors— Dannel Malloy of Connecticut and just-elected Phil Murphy of New Jersey. This week Mr. Murphy made his bid for the lead in his state’s downward cycle.

Governor Murphy has proposed that New Jersey provide what has come to be known as “free” community college. It is already “free” in New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Tennessee. Attached to Governor Murphy’s free-tuition commitment would be an outlay of $45 million in grants, which will come out of the state’s already stretched budget.

Governor Murphy argues that this “investment” makes sense because a larger pool of community-college graduates will attract entrepreneurs and start-ups to New Jersey. “Community college is a linchpin opportunity for us,” he says. Of course making New Jersey’s community colleges free depends on another linchpin: imposing higher taxes on other residents of the state to pay for it.

The budget that Governor Murphy’s submitted last month, a 4.2% spending increase, proposes raising the state’s highest individual tax rate to 10.75% from 8.97% on incomes above $1 million, restructuring business taxes to raise more revenue and raising the sales tax to 7%. That is essentially the governance model Governor Malloy has used since 2011, with famously unfortunate economic results for Connecticut.

New Jersey is already dead last in the Tax Foundation’s 2018 ranking of state overall business tax climates. It’s 50th in property taxes but only 48th in individual taxes. Perhaps Mr. Murphy can overtake New York and California to get to the bottom.

*** end quote ***

Well, all I can advise Taxpayers in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee is to get out.

If at all possible.

Those of us, who are stuck, here have stand, fight, and die on this proverbial “hill”. For whatever reason, we have no good choices left.

And, as the old Taxpayers dies out, who is going to replace them. Not the wealthy; not the young; not even anyone who has a choice.

Argh!

“…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

NEWJERSEY: 7 NJ counties run Nursing Homes?

Friday, June 2, 2017

BEHIND THE WSJ PAYWALL 

Should Nursing Homes Be a Government Service?

*** begin quote ***

NANTUCKET, Mass.—The 11,000 year-round residents of this summer colony off Cape Cod are confronting an emotional question: whether the island is a place where they can grow old.

*** and ***

Nantucket now joins cities and towns from New Jersey to Tennessee in wondering whether nursing homes are an essential municipal service like fire, sewers and schools.

*** and ***

Financial pressures led New Jersey counties to sell their nursing homes to private companies, a move that saved some facilities, according to John Donnadio, executive director of the New Jersey Association of Counties. Only seven New Jersey counties still run nursing homes, down from 14 about five years ago, and “that number is going to drop more,” he said.

*** end quote ***

Who knew?

Why?

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. 

I don’t understand why it’s in 5?

Argh!

NEWJERSEY: NJ parents abdicate to the police

Fearful NJ Parents Freak Out, Trigger Lockdown Over School Play Prop
Posted by Bob Owens on February 12, 2015 at 2:11 pm

*** begin quote ***

A prop gun sparked a brief lockdown at Northern Valley Regional High School in Demarest, New Jersey, police say.

A student came to school on Knickerbocker Road this morning carrying a prop rifle for the school’s production of Hello Dolly, police said.

Some parents saw her and thought the gun was real, and they alerted authorities.

Police identified the girl within 10 minutes of responding to the scene.

*** end quote ***

It took ten minutes to id her?

Seriously!

In any event, how many would have been dead in those minutes (i.e., time to respond and time to find).

<<Remember the bumpersticker: “When seconds count, the police are minutes away.>>

And, where were the brainiac parents? 

After calling the police, if my child was in that school, then I’d have been over there to “speak” with “gun toter”.

Assuming it was pointed at anyone, it would have been a short conversation.

Assuming it was, I have done my best imitation of Richard Marvin Butkus. (Arguably the meanest middle linebacker to play “American” football.)

Instead, the parents were content to go on their way and leave it to the police to clean up the mess?

Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee is sadly going in the wrong direction.
