MORE ON THE GAS TAX IDEA



The editorial espousing a twenty for cent per gallon gasoline tax is ridiculous. As a senior citizen that drives mostly local and several road trips with cars that are EPA rated at over 28 miles per gallon I foresee the devastating increase in gasoline taxes. Between doctors, gymnasium, shopping etc., the cost will be over $200 per year.

What we need is a state that finds a method to reduce our cost per-mile of road maintenance. The State of NJ is ranked 48 most expensive among the fifty states. The two states where the cost of maintenance per mile are Hawaii and Alaska.
 What is needed is a wood-shed where our governor could take the Transportation Commissioner.  If this is not enough Christie should be taken to the wood shed.

Look at the methods of competitively bidding. Look at the specifications for unnecessary restrictions. And look at the cost of police being on site during the work. Watch this last one and see how many police are actually watching and not talking to a member of the work crew. What are they talking about,-The game last night, or the girls on dancing with the Stars?

This is another reason to SCREAM at Governor Christie

New jersey is the 3rd highest in maintenance cost.
We don't need higher gas tax, we need cheaper maintenance costs.

I sent a message to the South Jersey Times and Christie. They repeated a similar editorial as the one below.

 
When it comes to gasoline, New Jersey drivers have two demands: that it’s relatively cheap and that someone pumps it for them. Politicians rarely discuss changing the state’s rock-bottom gas tax rate or mandatory full-serve pumps. Voters are intensely fond of both.
But New Jersey’s highways are brittle and congested. Governors past and present have borrowed so heavily from the Transportation Trust Fund that whatever puny gas taxes we collect are used to pay down billion-dollar debts — with little left over to build new roads or fix old ones.
State Sen. Raymond Lesniak is right: New Jersey’s roads and bridges are failing, and we don’t have the money to fix them. That’s why the Union County Democrat wants to raise the state gas tax by 15 cents a gallon over three years. That’s an increase (scaled down from his original proposal of 24 cents over six years) that is measured and reasonable.
New Jersey’s infrastructure is rotting with age and neglect. Last year, a study concluded we’d need to spend $21 billion over five years just to get into passable shape. A 15-cent gas tax hike would mean an extra $750 million a year.
Despite the glaring need, Gov. Chris Christie is adamantly against any attempts to raise the gas tax — unchanged since 1991 — though he’s a big part of the reason a hike is needed.

“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Hillary said.

Appearing at a Boston rally for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley on Friday, Hillary Clinton told the crowd gathered at the Park Plaza Hotel not to listen to anybody who says that “businesses create jobs.” Read Breitbart.

Ronald Reagan's "A Time for Choosing" Speech's 50th Anniversary



The Speech that Defined Conservatism for 50 Years
by Craig Shirley



Ronald Reagan (center) leads a group that rallied in support of Sen. Barry Goldwater's presidential candidacy in San Francisco in July 1964. Rep. Bill Miller was Goldwater's running mate (right)

It was not the best of times for Ronald Reagan in the early 1960s. His beloved mother Nelle had died, and he mourned her for months. His career had gone into a tailspin with the loss of his GE contract.

In 1953, Reagan was the perfect choice to host "General Electric Theater" on CBS and go on the road several weeks a year to give speeches and do the grip and grin with tens of thousands of employees.

But by 1962, the calm and reassuring Reagan was... Read More At Investor's Business Daily.

Is this still true?

 Written and printed in Courier Post November 2013:

If a person of national authority repeatedly assures that something will come to pass, can we assume there is a promise?
A border guard was murdered by people taking advantage of weapons sold under the Fast and Furious program. Green energy loans totaled billions. We had millions contributed to Solyndra and like solar corporations that went bankrupt.
We heard of the IRS using its authority to subject the requests of conservative organizations to delays and scrutiny. Phone calls and emails were intercepted and recorded by the National Security Agency.
The raid in Benghazi resulted in the death of Americans. We were told that the raid in Benghazi was the result of an anti-Islam video. We were told, by our president, the culprits would be brought to justice. Various stories of possible military rescue missions to Benghazi have been reported, but the witnesses have not been permitted to testify.
Our president assured the government we would get to the bottom of these fiascoes.
Oh well, we can keep our health insurance and doctor, or is that left up to the secretary of Health and Human Services? She issued the criteria that insurance companies must meet.
Who cares what difference it makes?
