Unfortunately for tax payers who are not on welfare... To the people on welfare - more kids, means aRead More bigger paycheck! When everything is free.. Prenatal care, delivery costs at the hospital, health insurance, baby formula, diapers, daycare.. So you can go BACK to work... COST A FORTUNE. All items I listed above are 100% paid for for people on welfare. And for most, all of this stuff is given to single mothers with multiple kids. (Which would classify the children as 'living in poverty').... I agree with helping people get on their feet.. But I know lots of people who've been on welfare and get everything for free and a check every month (cash) and if they add another child to their family.. They get more $! They've been on welfare for YEARS!! If ANYONE got all that for free, WHY NOT have more kids?? They aren't paying for it, the state is. Here I am, my next child will cost me 'out of pocket' ONLY $6500! Only??? Lol makes ya think twice about having more!! THANKS OBAMA CARE! Asshole...

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

We addressed rezoning last year in a big way. We let our Mayor and elected officials know thatRead More ‘we the people’ of Wayne do not want hi density housing. But where exactly does that leave us? We are still awaiting final COAH mandates. Mayor Vergano told us succinctly that Company’s are not moving to Wayne and Wayne does not give tax breaks to businesses. In the same breath we were advised that Businesses want to move to areas where their employees can ‘live, work and play.’ So now, here we are with a newly expanded Economic Development Council to try and draw ‘ratables’ to Wayne. How exactly do we do this? The Board of Education is finalizing their budget. Once again, annually actually, there is another increase looming. The Council will begin working on their budget and I heard it from a Council member there will be another township increase and the County is sure to follow suit. I ask again, how do we entice businesses to move to Wayne? There is no economic incentive to the business nor to the employees. BAE has stated they are leaving Wayne because their employees cannot afford to live here. Our ever increasing taxes are making our community less and less affordable and our home values lower. The Mayor may just be right, businesses, ratables, just may not come to Wayne. If Businesses want to be in communities where there employees can live, work and play and Wayne is not affordable then Mayor Vergano is 100% correct. How then do we reverse this trend? We must stop the ever increasing taxes in this town. Other towns have done it, so too we must. We need to let the Board of Ed and the Township Council hear our objections to yet another annual increase. I have lived in Wayne for 19 years and my taxes have gone up every single year. We need not to accept even a little increase from the Board of Ed or the Town. We need to come out and be heard. Voice your objection to any tax increase. As our taxes continue to rise, and our home values continue to flounder, we are less likely to draw commercial ratables to Wayne. What then, HiDensity housing? Rezoning? The Board of Ed will be hearing public comments tonight and over the next few days. Let your voices be heard.

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.

The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.
Bob West April 24, 2014 at 06:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.

I am a whole hearted support of the United States Supreme Court and my 1st amendment right to sayRead More what I said because I support Cheif Justice Robert, But he and his group is dangerouslly Silly. Inner City Education where the teachers promoted a theory if I get one child to college after 13 years I have done my job the educational system in this country was built to make you a servent not a thinker. In a class of 30 that teacher and teachers focus on just one. I believe if he/she focus on 29 being able to read and write do math, understood science, then she did her job and still had work to do one was left behind. But let thanks President Reagan for giving us the Preppy look.

her hiring was a joke, I mean they said they did a background check: must not have used GoogleRead More search because they've listed her troubles before her hire at Rutgers.

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

Separation of church and state. Period. Even if the supposed "majority" want it in, anyRead More reference to God should not be in a public place (including the Congress, the Supreme Court....virtually the entire government). Eliminating the "under God" part in the Pledge of Allegiance is a start towards an America based on the founding principle: freedom for people to live the way they want to live (as long as he or she does not infringe on the rights of another person). Religion is a private affair, not a public one.
