    Yesterday Obama gave secret hand signals to the Mexicans in his speech in which he said he was on their side; CA and NM really do belong to them:

    "Real" socialists aren't worthy of respect. Sure, they oppose the ruling class, but what they'd replace the current model with is far worse.

Well-known revolutionary, unrepentant terrorist, and personal friend of Obama Bill Ayers estimated he and his group the Weather Underground would need to kill 25 million people in "re-education" camps if their socialist revolution ever succeeded.

    Socialism in all its forms is about one thing: control. Socialism is for the people, not for the socialist. They always seek to impose their will on others "for the greater good."

State income taxes aren't much better. We keep sinking more and more money into the public schools, and they haven't improved. The cities of Newark, Paterson, Jersey City, Camden, etc. all have serious crime problems. Law-abiding citizens who wish to own a gun have to jump through flaming hoops to get a firearms ID card. None of the gun control laws here have stopped criminals in the aforementioned cities. The roads here are among the worst in the country, despite nearly round-the-clock roadwork being done which helps contribute to our traffic problem. The political elite have nothing but contempt for the citizens of this state, and treat us like a bottomless piggy bank. It's no wonder more and more people have been leaving the state.
    Oh. My. Goodness. This ^^^ is absolutely true - every single syllable. My pop is a Jersey boy, my four girls were all born there, I am related to a good few folk down in south Jersey, and we still bailed 8 years ago for all of the above reasons, and it hurts my heart to think on what a great place it could be.

    When you get the chance, go. You will miss some things, but what you will gain is so much greater.

    All of my extended family lives here in NJ, and I'm fortunate enough to have a job that lets me and my family live comfortably. My job isn't really available elsewhere, so I'll be staying put. Were it not for these 2 things, I'd be gone in a heartbeat.

    but the governments that did that were not socialists. That's what I am saying- they just had family connections and wealth and deceit enough to smack that name on their megalomania. They were first given legitimacy because normal people fought strike-breakers and soldiers in the street over stuff like a living wage. Those people are awesome.

    Socialism in all its forms is about one thing: control. Socialism is for the people, not for the socialist. They always seek to impose their will on others "for the greater good."
    no they don't. All government classes and ruling factions use that kinda rhetoric to advance their agenda, but I am not talking about the controlling class, and am making a distinction between them and the guys in the street who did shit like fight the Tsar's political police.


    (edit: for the record- I am an anarcho-capitalist- just saying that when you call a politician a Socialist, you are honoring him with an implied concern for anyone except his controlling interests, which is probably not the case in that individual's black little fuck heart)

For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Perfect example of what I am talking about- that piece of shit is living high with privileged connections and insider trades, has wealth! despite his claimed sympathy for the poverty of the working class, etc. In fact he is just a snake-oil selling piece of shit that knows how to cast himself in a flattering light by adopting the mantle of legitimate resistance crafted by actual sacrifice of good people throughout history.

    I do understand, though... Hubby actually still has his old comfortably-paying Jersey job - his job just lends itself incredibly well to home offices and telecommuting and they let us do it as hubby is a model employee. We have a lot of medical expenses as we have a disabled/special needs kid, and living in BFE keeps our mortgage/taxes/etc incredibly low so we have the diff to pay bills with and save. And - hubby no longer has that daily slog up and down the Parkway, so he has more hours of his life back. Geez-Louise, did the commute waste hours daily!!

    Hey skorpion, I just looked at your stats in your sig line... and what an incredible job on the weight loss!!!

    I hear you on the Parkway commute - I have to do it every day. Nothing aggravates me more than traffic.

    Thanks for the compliment! It wasn't too hard, I had lost 126 lbs. in 6 months (Jan. 2012 - June 2012), then fluctuated between 200 lbs. and low 190s until Nov. 2012. I badly sprained my toe playing in a family football game after Thanksgiving, I could barely walk for over a week. Couldn't exercise for a couple months (it hurt that bad - still hurts a little if I bend it a certain way). My diet went off the rails for a few months. I ballooned up to 245 lbs. by Jan. 2013. My town's health dept. has run a 100-day weight-loss challenge for the last couple years - winner gets $100. I figured that was great motivation to get me back on track. The final weigh-in is tomorrow, and I'm pretty sure I've won - last year's winner lost 13% of their starting weight, as of today I've lost 19.3%. My real goal now is getting my body fat % down to 15% or lower.
