Rasmussen Poll: 67% say NO to the NFL

Americans appear to have had enough.  A new poll by Rasmussen shows 67 percent of Americans in opposition to tax breaks for NFL teams and their owners. 


Rasmussen polled this question nationally: "Do you favor or oppose giving tax breaks to NFL teams?"

 

In response, 67 percent answered "NO", just 18 percent answered "YES", with 15 percent undecided or not sure.  More women opposed tax breaks than men: 68% NO, 13% YES, 19% Not Sure. 

 

Non-white/non-African-American voters were strongest in opposition.  They answered 70% NO, 16% YES, 14% Not Sure.  African-Americans were strongly opposed however: 62%, 22%, 16%. 

There was very little difference between the parties, with Republicans and Democrats in opposition to tax breaks at 71% and 69%, respectively.

     

 

Looks like the wheels are coming off all those efforts by rich, suburban, pseudo-leftists -- who have troubled so many of our public spaces with their attempts at becoming local B-list celebrities.  Your attempt at making a fashion statement has suffered a backlash.  Congratulations!

ANTIFA's Kate & Gina support Corzine-era school aid

New Jersey has the most inequitable system of education funding in America and, as a result, the highest property taxes.  The income tax -- which was passed 40 years ago on the promise of reducing property taxes -- is a failure and a scam that subsidizes the property tax bills of well-to-do professionals in places like Hoboken and Jersey City, at the expense of working families in rural and suburban towns.

 

New Jersey is rated as just about the worst place in America to start a business and the state has lagged in job creation because of a putative regulatory regime and a tax structure that compares unfavorably with the rest of America.  This inability to create employment for its citizens leads to a cycle of despair that includes high unemployment, underemployment, debt, foreclosure, record levels of poverty, and child hunger.

 

The politically-appointed, unelected state Supreme Court has destroyed the ability of suburban towns to determine their own future and it has deprived people in rural communities of the use of their land without compensating them for their loss of rights.  The unelected Court has stripped the elected Legislature of its primary role of determining how the people's money is spent and it has moved power away from the voters and into the hands of the political bosses who are responsible for their appointment.

 

And Kate & Gina... they are cool with all this.

 

At Tuesday night's debate in Ogdensburg, the ANTIFA twins drooled all over the legacy of faux-liberal Governor Jon Corzine (Democrat - Goldman Sachs).  It was Corzine, it will be remembered, who raped the working families of rural and suburban New Jersey, in order to feed the political patronage machines of urban school districts.  Under Corzine, less money made it into the classrooms, while administrative overhead ballooned. 

 

At Tuesday's debate, "Dishonest Kate" Matteson explicitly defended the Corzine era-school funding formula -- specifically praising the corrupt and essentially unaudited free lunch program and the program that provides extra-funding for non-English speaking children.  Matteson defended the fact that the so-called Abbott school districts absorb most of the available state school funding, even though half the state's economically disadvantaged children live outside the Abbott districts.  In so doing, "Dishonest Kate" Matteson merely confirmed that she is, in fact, no different than any other urban Democrat in wanting to screw over the taxpayers of Sussex and Warren Counties.

 

Meanwhile, the other ANTIFA twin -- Gina Trish -- attacked her Warren County neighbor, Senator Mike Doherty, and his Fair School Funding plan, which would which cut property taxes in Sussex and Warren Counties by backing up every school child in the state with enough school funding to cover the basics -- instead of a few urban districts getting all the money to fund a bloated administration, political patronage, and non-educational bells and whistles.  ANTIFA Trish is fine with the current formula that makes working families in Sussex and Warren Counties subsidize the property taxes of rich one-percenters in Hoboken and Jersey City.

 

Senator Mike Doherty says ALL CHILDREN'S LIVES MATTER.

 

The ANTIFA twins Kate & Gina support the current Democrat mantra that wants to keep the subsidies going to rich one-percenters, political patronage hacks, and well-connected corporations -- at the expense of people like us.

"Dishonest Kate" Matteson gets confused at debate

At Tuesday night's highly choreographed debate in Ogdensburg, Democrats Kate Matteson & Gina Trish followed the script provided them by their handlers from the office of Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace.  But at times, Kate & Gina -- affectionately known as the "ANTIFA twins" because of their involvement in those pro-Sanctuary State/ pro-Muslim/ illegal immigration/ anti-Trump rallies held on Newton Green -- appeared to make statements that belied a lack of historical knowledge of the recent political history of New Jersey.


For instance, Matteson made the statement that "only a decade ago, Sussex County was  booming" and then attempted to blame the lack of it today on the Republicans in the Legislature.  In fact (and as anyone with even the slightest knowledge would know) Sussex County's current economic difficulties are the result of the Highlands Act, which was pushed through against the objections of the county and its property owners by Democrat Governor Jim McGreevey.

 

The Highlands Act was major Democrat Party legislation that created a regulatory nightmare for the people who reside on 859,000 acres in Sussex, Warren, Morris, Hunterdon, and Passaic Counties.  This Democrat legislation took away the property rights of thousands of people and made the government their masters.  The late Senator Bob Littell fought to get exemptions for certain towns within the Highlands Region, and Jim McGreevey acknowledged this in his book covering his time as Governor. 

 

Since being signed into law on August 10, 2004, by Democrat Governor Jim McGreevey, the Highlands Act has been responsible for suppressing the economy of Sussex County.  Economists agree that because of the regulatory hurdles imposed by state legislation like the Highlands Act, it took New Jersey longer to recover from the Great Recession than neighboring states.  According to the Pew Charitable Trust, New Jersey lagged behind most states (and all of its neighbors) in economic growth since the Great Recession.  One reason for that is the fact that its largest undeveloped land mass has been locked-up and quarantined to economic growth and job creation.

 

And let's be clear:  The Democrats did that.  Kate & Gina's political party. 

 

At Tuesday's debate, "Dishonest Kate" Matteson said that Sussex County needed to be more "inviting to business."  That's true, but you  will first have to get rid of all the disinviting regulations passed and put into place by her party -- the Democrat Party.  Because of Democrats like ANTIFA twins Kate & Gina, the Tax Foundation rates New Jersey as the worst state in America for its business climate.

 

So don't let the ANTIFA twins fool you with their talk of "growth" and "jobs". 

 

They support the destructive Highlands Act.  The only "growth" they are looking for is bigger government and more regulation of our lives -- our businesses, what we eat, what we say, and how we think.  The only "jobs" they want are more political patronage jobs for their buddies.  More government jobs -- less free market.

One picture is all you need to know about Rob Jennings

This is Rob Jennings when he worked for corrupt Democrat Governor Mario Cuomo.  Look at Jennings' face.  That's love, and ain't it sweet?

These days, Jennings works for the anti-worker Newhouse media group, responsible for damaging the economic well-being of hundreds of its workers.  Yep, Jennings is a "corporate" Democrat in the mode of Bill and Hillary.  He serves "the man." 

 

We are getting a bit tired of newspapers who sell themselves as "neutral" and "unbiased" and then they hire writers who are anything but.  And based on how many of these so-called "journalists" end up working for "corporate" Democrat candidates and elected officials after they leave the "news" business, it seems that many of them are just auditioning for their future political jobs while writing for a newspaper.  Want to make a bet that this idiot will end up on the staff of a Democrat like Josh Gottheimer, churning out "faux-left" propaganda, 24-7? 


Then again, how would that be different from now?

 

Now here is a story that an insider corporate Democrat like Jennings won't cover:  Bet you didn't know that there is a convicted criminal serving in the Legislature?  Yeah, he's a goodfella corporate Democrat and he was charged with stalking a woman.  He ended up being convicted on federal charges. 

 

This goodfella legislator belongs to the Democrat caucus, which has bottled up anti-home invasion legislation and has prevented it from going before the entire Legislature for a vote.  Jennings doesn't think that's important, but then read this:

 

Police: Man sexually assaulted 2 minors during Wantage burglary 

By Lori Comstock New Jersey Herald

Posted: Oct. 8, 2017

WANTAGE -- The New Jersey State Police and the Sussex County Prosecutor's Office last week brought multiple charges, including two counts of first-degree sexual assault on a minor, against a New York man after police allege he broke into a Wantage residence and threatened two minors with a gun before sexually assaulting them.

According to New Jersey State Police, it is alleged that after police arrived at the scene of the burglary, the man eluded capture by driving away in a stolen truck, knocking over a mailbox, and later abandoning the vehicle in a field. He escaped but was found four days later in Long Island, N.Y.

Craig Lassiter, 33, of Middletown, N.Y., was charged by the state police and the county Prosecutor's Office with the following counts on Wednesday: Two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault on a minor less than 13 years old; two counts of first-degree sexual assault during the commission of a robbery and burglary; one count of first-degree robbery while threatening to use a deadly weapon; two counts of second-degree sexual assault on a minor less than 13-years-old; two counts of second-degree sexual penetration while using physical force; second-degree robbery; two counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child; two counts of third-degree criminal restraint; two counts of third-degree terroristic threats; third-degree theft; two counts of fourth-degree sexual contact; and fourth-degree criminal trespass.

At 2:01 a.m., Monday, Sept. 18, troopers from the New Jersey State Police, Sussex station, responded to a Wantage Township residence after the homeowner called 911 to report a burglary, according to state police.

The caller advised dispatchers that he believed the burglar may still be in the residence.

When troopers arrived, they attempted to stop a Chevrolet Silverado with New York license plates which was driving away from the area of the burglary, police said.

When the trooper activated his overhead lights, the driver -- later identified as Lassiter -- swerved around the trooper's car, ran over a mailbox and sped away, according to police.

Troopers were able to quickly locate the vehicle, which was abandoned in a field, but Lassiter was not located after an extensive search of the area.

Upon further investigation, troopers discovered that the truck was reported stolen out of New York state.

According to police, when detectives and troopers continued their investigation at the residence where the burglary took place, they discovered the incident was more than a burglary.

It was determined that Lassiter entered the residence through a bedroom shared by two juveniles. Once inside, he threatened the victims with physical violence, told them he had a gun, and sexually assaulted them, according to police.

The juveniles eventually told family members, who searched the house and discovered their front door was left open.

Through various investigative means, detectives were able to identify Lassiter as the suspect and through a collaborative investigation with New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit, New York State Police, Nassau and Suffolk County police departments, and the Middletown City (New York) Police Department, Lassiter was located and arrested on Friday, Sept. 22, in Bayshore, Long Island, N.Y., as the result of arrest warrants issued by Sussex troopers for eluding and receiving stolen property.

He was extradited to New Jersey on Sept. 29, and lodged in the Sussex County jail pending additional charges.

Lassiter is jailed pending a bail hearing.

 

Shouldn't so-called journalists like Rob Jennings put aside their political propaganda long enough to address real issues that impact the lives of ordinary people?  Stop working for "the man" long enough to do something positive for the people.
