I was at the Toby Keith concert at PNC last year. They will need a fleet of school buses to haulRead More away the potential drunk drivers from this event. Countless fights, people barfing all over the place. Two things I will never forget.... the long lines at the port a johns with guys peeing on the outside walls of them while they were occupied and two "ladies" peeing in bathroom sinks.... in the Men's room.

http://womenandpolicing.com/violencefs.asp Two studies have found that at least 40% of policeRead More officer families experience domestic violence, (1, 2) in contrast to 10% of families in the general population.(3) A third study of older and more experienced officers found a rate of 24% (4), indicating that domestic violence is 2-4 times more common among police families than American families in general. A police department that has domestic violence offenders among its ranks will not effectively serve and protect victims in the community.5, 6, 7, 8 Moreover, when officers know of domestic violence committed by their colleagues and seek to protect them by covering it up, they expose the department to civil liability.............. Amazing statistics that they DO NOT want you to see.

Like random drug testing, random driver testing should be a requirement because I am convinced thatRead More we have many undocumented, and even some unlicensed drivers on the roads these days. I have a ten-question driver test (one I devised from an article in Reader's Digest, years ago) that I would gladly give to anyone who drives. I will venture a guess that 80% would fail with half or more, incorrect answers.

They'll also likely bankroll the government programs that keep old people chugging along, in the form of sales taxes.

View of the water off Sandy Hook, NJ
William July 15, 2014 at 03:33 pm
Christina the revised up to date post is better then the first one but needs some more editing, IRead More laughed my Butt of with the statement The coast Guard along with The NY & NJ EPA Conferred that if the top was off the drum it was most likely Sea Water, George Carlin would tear that statement apart. You stated 3 photos were provided of the drum by the fishermen that is not a IF the lid was off, Being 3/4 full of Water as previously stated one would expect it to Be SEA Water. I am Just Jesting . Reporters always have Dumb statements when reporting, Example The suspect that was caught shooting and murdering the subject that was shot dead at the Scene of the Crime used a Gun, Get My drift Play on words fro the Mystery Drum, That most likely had a Made in Iran on it.

The shooter was an ex-con. He HATED police. For some reason, he has had enough. Maybe he was drunkRead More or stoned & didn't want to go back to jail. So he grabs a security guards gun & waits for the police to arrive & opens up on them. After killing the first cop the next two cops to arrive on the scene open up on him & kill him. Police cars need bullet proof glass & steel plates put in the doors. The results from his blood test should be coming out any day now.

George Murphy July 15, 2014 at 11:49 am
This is another (from many) example of how our government has pushed aside the great people of ourRead More nation to focus more on "apparent" great people of our nation. Union Beach is a struggling area and has had many, many difficulties since even before Sandy. There isn't enough room here to say what needs to be said (not that it hasn't already been said) about the way our leaders have turned their backs on poor veterans like this. They must always be our first, and foremost interest and until we change leadership at the very top, this will never happen.
Tim July 14, 2014 at 08:28 am
If you look at the people who frequent Walmart, you get a clear, pathetic, pitiful, picture of theRead More core of the problem. Severely undereducated, easily brainwash-able, very apparent lack of self value. Perfect target voter for the republiscams. Without these types, the right wingers might eke out 10 pr 20% of the vote every election. Its no wonder why the red states are the poorest educated in the country.
B July 14, 2014 at 08:32 am
@MaryLynn if Walmart is such a great company, why can't THEY help their employees? I understand ifRead More there is a divorce or death etc.....but for Christmas?? Give your employees a bonus free turkey! While the Walmart CEO is being brought his dinner prepared by his staffed cook. He should maybe think of the little people who got him to where he is.
Ken Briggs July 14, 2014 at 03:00 pm
good luck , with all the court stuff maybe you can get some money in four / five years from now .Read More but walmart is a cheap place to work for .

A subject in Jersey City stabbed a security guard and took the guard's handgun. When a two manRead More police car responded the subject shot and killed the officer on the passenger side and was then shot and killed by the police. The subject had claimed earlier that he would be famous. Of course the media has published his name and given him his 2 seconds of fame. So the copycats will keep on copying.
jersey girl July 21, 2014 at 01:15 pm
If the woman owns a gun legally she should know the laws period. Laws are the laws if we like themRead More or not. I hope they cut her a break for being honest but it is her responsibility to know the laws. Ignorance of Law is no defense in the United States.
William July 21, 2014 at 08:24 pm
Thank You jersey girl. When a person legally Buys a Gun a Responsibility and Accountability comesRead More along with it. Just as with a Drivers Lic. Even tho one is a Right and one is a Privilege. Ignorance is not Bliss. Plain and simple she broke New Jersey Law, No matter the excuse The court will decide not The Public Court of Opinions, Just because in Penn. one can walk in Buy a Gun and the law says you have a right to Carry, does not give you the same rights in any other states. And THUDNJ You really think The Federal GOV. would do a better job . IRS-VA- CIA -FBI Yea Right. And to repeat my Self To Obtain a New Jersey Firearm Purchasing Permit, Be it Pistol or Shotgun. It goes threw back Ground checks From Local Police , State Police and Federal ( FBI ) checks, So in essence She or any one from out of State should have more rights the a New Jersey Citizen. And THUDNJ it is The Federal Gov, Us Senators and Congress that are coming up with these screwy laws, So every time some one is found with a Loaded gun in their car from out of State or MEXICO where they bought it Legally Most with no Background Checks or Even a Drivers LIC. Where A Drivers LIC. will be given to the Illegals if obamanation has his way they just have to say I did not know it was Illegal I am Sorry, This whole story can go on and on with Opinions when IT IS THE LAW of New Jersey she Broke,

Weekender's don't pay attention to such important things like how to get out of a rip current. EvenRead More I a strong swimmer with certifications had trouble getting out of a couple of them. I also fully knew how to handle myself and it's still a killer for those who come down here to party and then think they are jumping into a pool in the backyard. Never turn your back to the Ocean, give it the respect it deserves, and don't go in just to cool off thinking it's just a "rip current" no biggie! The Ocean will take you down in a flash.
