    Gov Chris Christie to Republicans: Don't stiff NJ on Hurricane Irene relief | NJ.com


    I wonder. Even though Christie is a Republican, New Jersey is still perceived as a blue state. :eusa_eh:

    NJ is a blue state for sure. But every 4-8 years, we vote for governors of a different party. NJ voters are notorious for hating governors of both parties because the state is so corrupt. Christie is not going to fix NJ's problems over night. And for that, I expect he will be punished. :confused:

    You know...one has to expect that when one DECLARES WAR ON GOVERNMENT, that sooner or later what that means is this:

    Things that we expect our government to do STOP working very well.

    Why is anyone surprised that the very people who openly tell us of their CONTEMPT for government are also telling us of their contempt for the people who need that government?

    You can't have it both ways kids.

    If we dismantle government expecting it to be there when we need its help is sort of silly.

    Let me - again - try and explain the fucking obvious to the terminally stupid:

    It is not about having "CONTEMPT" for Government. It is about having contempt for a FEDERAL Government overreaching its original remit.

    Now.... try and follow this very, very basic logic:

    If the federal government would stop overspending, there would be more money at a local level so they would not need to ask the federal government to help.

    Not fucking rocket science.

    What is beyond my comprehension is why that simple concept is seemingly so far above the intellectual capacity of so many on the left.
