Its really time to escape this state
I wish he didn't survive his accident.
Come out to Connecticut, it smells better!
I'm gonna have to take a fucking train to Giants games :icon_eek:
Damn, I actually feel bad for you guys up there. But I'm glad I got out when I did.
With this plan implemented and the whole host of other shitty things that corrupt state is doing, I would expect an increasing number of people just picking up and moving out of that shithole. Even more than the record numbers of people fleeing are now. When honestly was the last time Jersey had a Governor or Senator that actually made a difference and made life in NJ better? McGreevey? Florio? Whitman? That state is in the shitter.
We are in a crisis right now and Norcross is the pilot of our demise. We are fucked. Is there any website that deals with Jersey corruption?
This state sucks
I feel like a battered woman. I love this state so much that when it hits me, I think about leaving, but I just can't bring myself to do it.
Please call the Governor & voice your displeasure with his tax plan:
Do You Agree with
Gov. Corzine's Plan to
Raise Tolls in New Jersey?
Voice Your Opinion!
Contact the Governor:

The only good thing about this plan is that it's going to make my old boss's head explode. He obsessed about toll costs in the past. I can only imagine how crazy this is making him now.
Otherwise, it sucks a bag of dicks.
It's impossible to get anything done since the same party has had a virtual lock on the state for so long... yes the GOP had the Legislature and Governorship for a while, but on a county level, Middlesex (McGreevey), Camden (Norcross), and all of North Jersey, where all the corrupt politicians are from, the corruption runs thicker than anyone could possibly imagine. It costs us all a small fortune in property taxes. There is such a "good ol' boys" network here that its impossible to get anything done -- they've appointed all the judges, control the county boards of elections, everything. They have truly rigged the entire system.
Can I watch? Because that alone just might make the toll hike worth it.
Have a hurricane hit your heavy corrupt areas. You'd be amazed how well it works to clean out the trash. Ever since Katrina ran through New Orleans, the city hasn't had the political strength to appoint whatever corrupt insider they wanted. As such, we're actually appointing new people who have a decent history of reforming corrupt institution.
That's the catch 22 of the state. We suffer from 0 natural disasters. We're fucked.
I lived there for a few years and glad I bailed as well (now in NC). WTF are you guys paying for with all those property taxes, tolls, and every thing else? I don't mind paying taxes and I consider myself pretty liberal but you don't get any additional benefits and you pay about 4X as much.
I just read in the paper that a former mayor and cohort were arrested outside of a town hall meeting where Corzine was speaking about the toll hike. They protested outside and got hauled in.
That was down in Cape May. Steve Lonigan (sp?). He's not being charged with anything because he did nothing wrong. Corzine (or his people) ordered his arrest.
As long as you're not holding up signs you'll be fine.
ADD, we're paying for corruption, for the rich to get richer, and for the illegal aliens to live 30 to a house designed for 4 and send 10 kids to school on property taxes that expect there to only be 2. We're paying for shit holes like Camden, Newark, and Paterson to continue to be shit holes. Should I continue?
And it's all able to happen because they keep passing laws limiting our personal freedoms and no one says anything because they buy the "It'll make you safer" line of bullshit.
Keep voting democrat retards!!!!! and i mean retards in the meanest possible way. when is everyone gonna relize the democrats cost you money!!!!!! the only people who benefit from democrats are lazy n!ggers who don't wanna work and illegals.republicans, though irratating with the religion non sense, put more money in your pocket. their philosophy if the more money you have the more your gonna spend. fuck corzine i wish he died in that accident
It's surprising that Corzine hasn't been assassinated yet. This is unreal.
