Chris Christie Signs 7 Bills Into Law, Including One Inspired By ‘Snooki’Gov.

S-2398/A-3879 (Bateman, Allen, Greenstein, Singleton/Ciattarelli, Auth, Space) – Requires school district to adopt policy allowing students in grades 9 through 12 who participate in certain interscholastic extracurricular activities to earn varsity letter

*** end quote ***

So the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee has time to legislate on “varsity letters”, but can’t solve the fiscal problems.

Doesn’t anyone see the folly in this?

Another reason that the Gooferment Skrules should be privatized. Really privatized.

I believe that it could take 40 years — 20 to transfer them to private entities and another 20 to reduce the Gooferment funding to zero — but imagine how free we’d be when the Gooferment can’t propagandize the the children.

Argh!

NOTRECOMMENDED: LIMA, a personal cloud server and service

Sunday, May 14, 2017

http://meetlima.com

This does NOT live up to the hype. I read the articles, some from reputable tech journals, and bought in.

After trying to install it, and could not, I find out there are all sorts of problems.

* Doesn’t work with CHROMEBOOKS (No one mentioned that.)

* Doesn’t support shared Users on a computer.

* Doesn’t install easily

And there support site has many pages of questions form Users globally.

I was looking for a POGOPLUG replacement and I think I’ve bought a pig.

More to follow.

RANT: Mother’s Day; Mothers, globally, end all wars now

Not very nice. But then neither are all these Mothers’ sons and daughters dying for the whims of politicians and bureaucrats!

What better way to celebrate Mothers’ Day?

Here’s a re-cycled post that STILL makes me crazy.

Why can’t we have peace?

POLITICAL: Why aren’t anti ‘Airbnb’ Ordinances a “taking” under the Fifth Amendment?

Toms River ‘Airbnb’ Ordinance Revised for Barrier Island Neighborhoods
By Daniel Nee –  May 11, 2017 

*** begin quote ***

An ordinance aimed at preventing short-term home rentals such as those booked on the website ‘Airbnb’ was tweaked this week to exclude barrier island neighborhoods from the regulations, which essentially ban short-term rentals. But one mainland resident said that it is not fair to those who live on lagoons on the west side of the bay, which also could be attractive for vacationers.

*** end quote ***

Why isn’t this a “taking” under the Fifth Amendment?

Whose property is it?

And unless you live there full-time, you don’t get to vote for these tyrants. “No taxation without representation” is another joke!

Argh!

HEALTH: DVT prevention; your responsiblity — not the airlines or the Gooferment

How to prevent blood clots as airlines squeeze you into tighter spaces
THE POTENTIALLY FATAL CONDITION IS LIKELY TO INCREASE AS LEGROOM DECREASES
—BUT IT’S TOTALLY PREVENTABLE
By Claire Maldarelli

*** begin quote ***

The bottom line, Stewart says, is that as long as people continue to practice unhealthy plane habits, the rates of DVT will either remain the same or increase—but with a little knowledge (and movement), the condition could be completely prevented.

*** end quote ***

It’s a systemic problem we have the airplanes, their design, and the Gooferment. No one is responsible for the result —  crippled and even dead people!

Argh!

POLITICAL: End the “taxpayer-provided congressional health-care plan”!

Thursday, May 11, 2017

FROM THE WSJ

This daily briefing is named “The 10-Point” after the nickname conferred by the editors of The Wall Street Journal on the lead column of the legendary “What’s News” digest of top stories.

Richard Hobson of New Jersey wrote: “The only standard by which our distinguished congressmen and congresswomen should be judged on this issue is simply this: Will you personally forsake your current taxpayer-provided congressional health-care plan for the new one you have just passed?”

# – # – # – # – # 

That’s the acid test of all this bluff and bluster from the “District of Corruption”!

Just do a clean repeal, put down the pens, and step away from the “legislating”.

All they do is make things worse and worse.

Leave people alone to make their own decisions.

End Congress’ special benefits for itself.

Argh!
