NJ Politics

Posted by Ryan on November 5, 2005

The last gubernatorial debate between Doug Forrester and Jon Corzine is set for about 15 minutes from now. It’s being reported all over the place that Corzine had an illicit affair with, of all things, and intern and that she had an abortion. Also, Forrester had to deny his own alleged affair today. Whether the rumors true or not, the timing of these disclosures is interesting, but something just isn’t sitting well.

Entrenched politics-as-usual limosine-liberal Democrat Jon “Goldman Sachs” Corzine is running on a “change” platform, but alleged sexual hokey-pokey is the same nonsense that McGreevey “went down on.” With Dems in control of the legislature and the courts (yes, the courts in NJ are QUITE partisan… read Lautenberg), and with Corzine up in the polls, at what point to New Jerseyans stop electing these same tax-hiking morons?
I grew up seeing this happen too many times in Rhode Island! The idea:

Vote for Democrats because Republicans are bad.
Taxes are too high, the roads still have holes, and the politicians are currupt.
Vote for Democrats because Republicans are bad.
But…
Since 1934, the RI legislature has been controlled by Democrats.
But, Republicans are bad!?! What, all 12 of them?!
Cycle continues. One’s head spins.

Forrester will at least shake things up and bring the issues out for us to discuss, even if he doesn’t have control of the legislature.

Also, I saw a commercial during the Notre Dame game (41-21). In one of Corzine’s new ads, Doug “SS” Forrester looked very nazi-like with the black and white screen and the slow movement on stage, like a WWII documentary on Hitler. And of course Forrester was next to the biggest nazi of them all in one scene: George “Einsatzgruppen” Bush! This follows a familiar pattern–when the libs lose the argument they start calling you a fascist. Typical NJ lib m.o. Perhaps the ad is a good sign! Go Doug!!!

According to the Providence Journal, Senator Chafee has warned of “enormous” consequences from any Democratic effort to kill the Alito appointment by stalling. Where did THAT Come from?

Kabul, Baghdad, Paris

Posted by Sal on November 5, 2005

I think what most of the MSM has missed, and what no one has really said yet, is that the situation in Paris is another front in the War on Terror. It is a rejection of the Islamic immigrants in France to the secularist, socialist government of France. People running through the streets have been heard saying “allah’u ackbar” (or “God is Great”) as they torched Paris. Paris thought they would be spared from the War on Terror by opposing us in Iraq. What they failed to realize is that the War on Terror is not about our involvement in affairs of the Middle East, but it is about our way of life, and the way of life of Western Civilization. The good news in all this is that as we show our strength, we also show our humanity and compassion by liberating rather than conquering. As we spread democracy and give people self-determination, more and more Muslims in the Middle East will reject the Islamo-fascism of the terrorists. But in the meantime, Paris burns, and as usual, the French don’t have the spine to deal with it effectively. Another great “French Military Victory.”

Pat Robertson was Right

Chavez is getting awfully pushy down there. He and Castro have quite a little alliance– makes you think about the kind of people who support Hugo. He’d rather have no jobs for his people than to look at market solutions to aid his and Latin America’s economy. Oil ain’t gonna last forever Hugo. I hear ticking.

I Have a Headache

Posted by Ryan on November 5, 2005

Whereas it’s very bright here in NJ this morning and my head feels fifty pounds heavier, the situation in Paris continues to get worse! If the police do not start taking a more aggressive approach, then they should not be surprised that their weakness is emboldening even more people to join the fray. They tout a low death and injury count, but that has not solved anything yet. Chirac and “DeVil-in-pan” are all talk… but tell us something we didn’t know.

Well, they’re all talk until it has to do with kids in school wearing crosses, stars of David, or head dresses… THEN there is decisive action taken to rid the exposure of French children to the scourge of religion. The American Left looks at this kind socialist-Elysium-gone-wrong and believes that if the French government had just been coddling them MORE, then none of this would be happening.

Think about highway chases in California. Shoot the tires in the first mile and people might think twice before leading police on three-hour long chases that endanger countless numbers of bystanders in neighborhoods and on freeways. There is a time to be sensitive, and a time to kick-ass. Problem with Paris is that the French don’t quite remember how to do that.
