Land Of The Free, Home Of The Brave; Governed By A Lot Of Cowards…
On July 4th 1776 the Declaration of Independence was officially approved and this Nation was born. 56 men signed their death warrant to this historic document between August 2nd of 1776 and January 22nd of 1777. Since then over 2 million men and women have paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom and way of life. They swore to protect the constitution and held true to their word. It makes me sick to hear any coward in Washington say it is too dangerous More >
Rep Scott Garrett : Tax reform: a tall order
DECEMBER 21, 2014 LAST UPDATED: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2014, 1:21 AM BY SCOTT GARRETT THE RECORD
The code is also unfair, as many of the loopholes target small numbers of high-income individuals, while New Jersey’s middle-class families get stuck with the tab. It should come as no surprise that New Jersey has one of the highest tax burdens in the nation when you figure in the tidal wave of local, state and federal taxes.

AL SHARPTON LEADS MARCH IN DC AS NYC PROTESTERS CHANT: ‘WHAT DO WE WANT? DEAD COPS!’
WARNER TODD HUSTON 13 Dec 2014405
Joining the families of blacks killed by police, thousands marched toward the capitol and down New York streets on Saturday to protest what they called an epidemic of abuse at the hands of police.
But even though it was his event, many attendees didn’t want to hear from organizer Al Sharpton.
The march, organized by Sharpton’s National Action Network, once again chanted the oft-heard slogan, “No Justice, No Peace” with marchers demanding that federal laws be enacted to curb More >
Dangerous distortions on cops shooting black men
JOHN R. LOTT, JR.2 Dec 03:28 PM
Exaggerations have poisoned discussions about relations between blacks and the police.
“Black men between the ages of 15 and 19 are 21 times as likely as whites to be killed by a police officer,” said Chuck Todd on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”
Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree echoed Todd. “The data is clear, that black boys are being killed by white police officers around the country.” The claim was repeated frequently on other shows.
But those numbers aren’t entirely accurate, and they are far from the More >

NYPD Turns Backs to Mayor de Blasio
A blue wall of silently seething police officers turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio Saturday night — literally.
As the mayor and his entourage snaked through a jammed third-floor corridor at Woodhull Hospital, where two officers had been pronounced dead just hours earlier, scores of grieving cops faced the walls — and away from the leader they believe has failed them
Earlier, de Blasio approached a cluster of cops at the Brooklyn Hospital and offered, “We’re all in this together.”

Home seller resolutions for 2015
DECEMBER 21, 2014 LAST UPDATED: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2014, 1:21 AM WIRE SERVICE
Here’s the good news: Homes are selling. If you’re a seller, now is a good time to put your home on the market, as long as you’re realistic about your price.
Pricing a home correctly means understanding what kind of seller you are. We typically see three kinds: the desperate and anxious who must sell as soon as possible; the “pie-in-the-sky” homeowner with an inflated view of his home’s value; and the realist who understands what the market will bear and is willing to price his More >

It looked as if Wayne High School students would miss the equivalent of 30 days of new instruction this year because of tests, trips, assemblies and snow days.
So school officials did something radical; they got rid of midterm and final exams.
“Kids go to school because they enjoy learning; they want to explore and they want to learn about themselves,” said Michael Ben-David, assistant superintendent of Wayne More >
