Reader says ,When all else fails, play the race card

When all else fails, play the race card.
Call anyone who disagrees with you a bigot or a homophobe or anti women
That’s all the democrats have in their bag of tricks and it was exposed during the kavenaugh hearings
They have no ideas and simply ar the anti-everything tent for single issue voters. And if they ever get control they will be socialist like Venezuela and Cuba because they want 100 percent control.
What is REALLY RACIST is that democrats expect and demand every person who is not Caucasian to vote for them….or they are ostracized.

Time seems to be the basis for everything from the moment we are born into this world and take our first breath, til the moment we say our goodbyes and take our last

$23.77 is our price.

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, found an interesting website with stylish but inexpensive watches .  The site even offers Monthly Memberships for 1 or 2 Watches for $17.99  . Chrono is the brain child of  founder T.C. , who gave us the lowdown on how and why he founded Chrono Timeline Watches :

“Not always you realize where great inspiration comes from until moments like these hit you. Time seems to be the basis for everything from the moment we are born into this world and take our first breath, til the moment we say our goodbyes and take our last. And personally something I never really took note of until my father told me always keep time on me. Did I realize what that meant? A deep statement, but simple to its meaning. He meant always wear a watch so that I’ll always know what time it is…

Reader says Saudinio was a “greedy, bigoted, snobby, self-styled elitist “

buford_t_justice

For Saudinio, as a prominant Caucasian, to be as comfortable as he is in singling out and speaking down to, quote-unquote, “the blacks”. For Saudino to allow the natural independence afforded by his unique pre-constituional office to lead his tongue publicly to suggest that the new AG’s minority religion and concomitant garb (the turban) are the reasons he was elevated to that office by the new Governor. For Saudino to go further and give himself license to take a cheap shot another’s moral shortcomings (another officeholder’s apparent problems with same-sex attraction). These all mark Saudino as a self-satisfied majoritarian jerk. Saudino has already proudly shown himself to be without any identifiable political principles by switching midstream to the Democrat party, which, as everyone knows, only really cares about one thing–political power. Finally, his attention to self-interest is unsurpassed among state officeholders in New Jersey. NOTHING was going to interrupt the master bed-feathering class Saudino’s been teaching lo these many years.
.
What a greedy, bigoted, snobby, self-styled elitist this guy is–right at home, one might add, with his new friends. Let it be said without fear of contradiction: “Saudino and the Democrats: Perfect Together.”

the Ridgewood Blog Suffers a Rash of Technical Issues

Dear Reader

After 12 years we had to clean up our data base which took about 36 hours ,it is like cleaning an attic after spending a life time in a house . Apparently we had bats in the belfry and as you may have noticed we have had a rash of technical issues in recent days .

The next step in our upgrade is going to be migrating to a faster and more robust data base and the third and final step will be to clean up a few software problems and cliches.

In the mean time , try our new url : www.ridgewoodblog.net as well as the older , www.theridgewoodblog.net if you are having any trouble getting connected .

Reader says I have never seen the Duck Pond look worse than I have seen it now

duckpond_theridgewoodblog

I grew up with the Duck Pond being partially raised in the village and I have never seen the condition of the park, specifically the pond, look worse than I have seen it now. It looks as if the county and or the town or whoever takes care of the Duck Pond has lost interest and doesn’t really care. The accumulation of algae this year is horrible to the point where I believe it could be toxic with the odor alone. Signs are posted at the Glen Rock park and pond location in Glen Rock, also run by the county, which warn of a toxic algae accumulation in their pond, which looks mild by comparison to the Duck Pond situation, where the smell is putrid to the point where it almost made me vomit. Don’t believe me, go to the Duck Pond as of August 25, 2018. Doesn’t anybody give a shit?
