    That sucks. If I remember right, Jersey's got some major budget problems, too. They needed that money more than most other states I think.

    But they do.

    Some would argue that a man should not lay with another man...but they do.

    Would be better to fix the problems than throwing money at some.

    And yet another troll thread from boywonder Modbert. I wondered why the hell he would post this. Who cares?
    Then I saw mention of Gov Christi, very popular with conservatives and thought "aha! A petty attempt to smear Christi, like he was personally responsible for it."
    Nice going, junior!

    Because it's interesting. What's wrong sexist racist "Rabbi", decide to turn your obsessions to me now? :eusa_think:

    This isn't a petty attempt to do anything, all I did was post the article and say tough luck for New Jersey. The fact that the Christie Administration is to blame is just one part of the article.

    but he'd have to have two brain cells to rub together in order to understand that.

    i guess chris christie being on tv discussing it this a.m. discussing it was a lib plot.

    i particularly like the effort at editing news to what he wants. :cuckoo:

    and yeah, before the piece of garbage mentions it, that got him a neg.

    i actually don't mind chris christie. he's not insane.
