Democrat Perez says taxpayers are too stupid to decide

Last week, Warren County Freeholder Jason Sarnoski wrote in to the Herald to applaud Sussex County Freeholder candidate Herb Yardley for proposing that Sussex County voters be given the opportunity to decide on any future borrowing in the county.  That's right, Herb Yardley's idea is that before the county goes off on yet another half-baked scheme that will put it deeper into debt, the idea would get debated, placed on the ballot, and the voters would decide.

 

The idea is currently at work in Warren County and in individual municipalities in Sussex County -- like Newton, where the voters recently got to decide if they wanted to go $18 million into debt or not.   The proposal was placed on the ballot and voters were asked to approve more than $18 million in bonds to fund the expansion and renovation of the Merriam Avenue School.  The $18.69 million in new debt (bonds) would have increased the tax burden on the average home by $337 annually over the next 20 years.  959 voters said "no" and 238 voters said "yes" -- so the borrowing didn't happen.  

 

Dan Perez' philosophy is to take the power to decide away from the voters and give it to local politicians.  He would rather the taxpayers  pay an additional $337 in property taxes because -- in Dan Perez' philosophy -- average taxpayers are not lawyers like him, and so they are too stupid to be trusted to decide on issues like the debt they and their children and grandchildren will be paying over the next twenty years.  Dan Perez is liberal elitism at its worst.

 

When you think back on all the spending "mistakes" that the Sussex County Freeholder Board has made, can we afford more of them?  Dan Perez thinks so.

 

Dan Perez is a Democrat running for Freeholder.  Perez is a New York lawyer who has helped many a county insider with their legal troubles.  Perez is himself an insider, who has been appointed to two patronage jobs courtesy of the county Freeholder Board. 

 

Responding to Jason Sarnoski, Dan Perez argued the case for county political insiders across New Jersey.  Perez said to "trust" the political establishment in New Jersey, despite the fact that it is one of the most corrupt in America.

 

Democrat Perez pointed to urban Democrat machine strongholds like Hudson County, Essex County, Passaic County, Union County, and Camden County as places that Sussex County should emulate.  Perez asked his followers to reject the fiscal conservative example of neighboring rural Warren County in favor of these cesspits of county corruption -- where literally hundreds of politicians and patronage holders have been convicted or have pleaded guilty to corruption of one sort or another.  Perez is asking us to embrace this filth.

 

 Fortunately, most taxpayers know better.  They want their government back in their own hands.  They want a plan to get the county out of debt, so that we can begin to talk about getting property taxes under control. 

 

The people who pay property taxes know that the Democrats' talk of lowering them is pure bullshit (because they are the party of higher property taxes) and that the Republicans' hopes to lower them are pie-in-the-sky until we get spending and debt under control.  Neighboring Warren County has such a plan. 

 

While Sussex County was stumbling from crisis to crisis, from scandal to scandal, Warren County passed an ordinance that prevented its politicians from borrowing without first getting the approval of the taxpayers.  It is a reform that works!

 

What it does is this:  Before any long-term borrowing can happen, it must first go on the ballot for the voters to decide whether or not they think it is a worthy project and they want to pay for it.  The ordinance doesn't say that you can't borrow, it just says that you must get permission from the voters -- the people paying the taxes -- first.

 

Once this ordinance is passed, the politicians on the Sussex County Freeholder Board will have to ask the taxpayers for permission the next time someone comes up with a scheme to use tax money to place solar panels all over the place, or to build a new county administration building, or to finance the sale of the county dump to private investors.  It would put any of these crazy ideas on hold until the voters can properly scrutinize the plans and then place it on the ballot for the voters to decide.

 

No wonder insiders like Dan Perez are pissing their pants!

 

Some insiders make an argument that begins with the words, "what about an emergency" -- when they darn well know that the ordinance makes exclusions for emergencies.  It also makes exclusions for anticipatory borrowing, where the money is promised to the county.  What it ends is borrowing just to spend money and give contracts to other insiders. 

 

Insiders like Dan Perez are livid over this legislation and at how it threatens them and their fellow insiders.  But taxpayers are sick and tired of being pissed-on by people like Dan Perez.  This is a reform that is long overdue.

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!

Assemblyman Eustace sent his staffer to Nepal?

Dinner in Dubai?
 
What's up with these Democrats?
 
Look, we're cool.  We tend not to involve ourselves in the world of our Democrat brothers and sisters.  We let them do them, so long as we are left alone to do us. 
 
But lately a whole train of Dems are sticking their peckers into places where they certainly don't belong.  And so, we say, be done as you have done.
 
Now take a look at this shit...

Paid for by those special interests who pour money into Assemblyman Eustace's campaign account...

So let's get this straight.  Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace collects money from special interests, so that he and his legislative aide can fly around the world to do what?  You are a state legislator, not a congressman.  New Jersey doesn't have a foreign policy.

Are these Democrats aware that Nepal is one of the worst centers for human trafficking and modern slavery in the world?  While dining with some bigwigs there did they know that, according to the U.S. State Department, "the government of Nepal does not fully comply with minimum standards for the elimination of human trafficking"?  Here is more, from Wikipedia:

"Human trafficking in Nepal is a growing criminal industry affecting multiple other countries beyond Nepal, primarily across Asia and the Middle East.   Nepal is mainly a source country for men, women and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking... Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, second to drug dealing and tied with arms dealing."

At the LD24 Sussex County debate on Tuesday evening, we heard Assemblyman Eustace's aide -- David "Mr. Frosty" Grant -- pontificate about how much he admired "strong (rich, suburban, one-percenter, liberal) women."  That is good as far as it goes, but what about all those other women who don't have the advantages that say Kate & Gina, the ANTIFA twins have, or that their running mate "Boom Boom" Hamilton has?  Again, Wikipedia takes up the story of those women:

"Trafficking victims often are taken to locations within Nepal, often from rural areas to the urban centers. Mainly young girls and women are trafficked for sexual exploitation in places such as cabin/dance restaurants, massage parlors, and other places within tourism sector... Within Nepal, labor trafficking is also common: victims often end up in carpet and garment factories, embroidering sweatshops, brick-kilns, and others." 

"The trafficking of girls from Nepal into India for forced prostitution is perhaps one of the busiest slave trafficking routes anywhere in the world, with estimated 5,000-10,000 Nepali women and girls trafficked to India each year.   An estimated 100,000-200,000 Nepali trafficked persons are in India.   Nepali girls are especially desirable as prostitutes in India because they are considered more attractive due to their lighter skin color, and because Nepali virgins are believed to be able to cure AIDS.   Victims are also trafficked for labor in circuses, agriculture, and other manufacturing sectors.   The 1850 kilometers of open, porous border between Nepal and India make trafficking simple and difficult to catch.   In addition, there is no immigration control for Nepalese migrating to India or Indians coming in Nepal under the 1950 Peace and Friendship Treaty between India and Nepal.   In addition to being a destination, India is also a transit country for Nepalese and Bangladeshi women trafficked to Pakistan, Western Asia, and the Middle East and for women trafficked from the Russian Federation to Thailand."  

"Victims, especially girls and women, are trafficked to Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Russia, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates and other Gulf states.   Experts believe China is also becoming an emerging hub for Nepali victims.   Many victims who end up overseas are passed through India first before their final destinations... Girls are sold to brothels at prices ranging from 50,000 to 70,000 Indian rupees.   The younger the girl, the higher the price she will be sold for.   Once sold, the girls are property of the brothel owner until they can pay back the amount that was paid for them... One study reported that girls were forced to serve an average of 14 clients per day, with a minimum of three and a maximum of 40 men."

If Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace wants to do some good to counter his gross faux pas, perhaps he should make it a point to sign-on to the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Prevention Act (A-4503).  Republican Assemblyman Parker Space is a prime sponsor of A-4503 and Senator Steve Oroho (R-24) is the prime sponsor of the Senate version.  In fact, he gave the bill its name and the name several dozen such bills carry in nearly all of the 50 states.

So do some good, Tim.  And maybe you can ask your aide, Mr. Frosty, to suggest to his charges (the ANTIFA twins, Kate & Gina, and "Boom Boom") that they do some good too my endorsing the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Prevention Act (A-4503) instead of trashing its sponsors. 

It is a very sad thing to see rich, liberal, fortunate-to-have-been-born-in-America, suburban women turn a blind eye to their impoverished sisters overseas.  Very sad indeed.

LD38: Did Tim Eustace ever clear up his bail bond debt?

Legislative District 38 should be a competitive district.  Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace is looking pretty dashing these days, especially for a guy who should be worried about holding on to his 35 vote majority.  He doesn't appear to be, and it is a measure of just how vigorous an opposition he has faced this year that he has the extra resources to send his legislative aide (a young gent with frosted hair) to assist the Democrat legislative candidates in Sussex County.

Yep, instead of engaging in door-to-door combat in Hawthorne, Assemblyman Eustace's aide was at a debate in Sussex County, cheering on the Democrat team that has become affectionately known as the ANTIFA twins and their big sister, Jennifer "Boom Boom" Hamilton.  That right, it's no accident that "Kate & Gina" rhymes with ANTIFA.

On Saturday, while the volunteer firefighters of Sussex County gathered with their families in Newton for the annual firefighters' parade, Kate & Gina's ANTIFA allies where holding an anti-Trump rally on Newton Green, demanding that all restrictions on immigration from Muslim nations on the terror watch list be ended.  Yeah, right, let them in even though there is no reliable government to vouch for who they actually are.  Brilliant idea!

Later, "Boom Boom" Hamilton tried working the crowd of firefighters arm in arm with the neo-Marxist organizer of the anti-Trump rally.  Hey, somebody should tell "Boom Boom" that the American Democrat Party was traditionally anti-Marxist in the form of Presidents Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Baines Johnson -- and that Democrat Jimmy Carter slapped the first ban on travel from a Muslim terrorist nation.

But now back to the Democrat aide with the frosted hair.  His presence at the debate got us thinking about his boss, and we recalled that there was still a question left unresolved from his last campaign, when an issue was raised regarding two "active" judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace.  These were found on the New Jersey Court's public ACMS website.

A search of the details reveals that two civil cases filed in Bergen County are connected with these judgments.  They are dockets DC-624821-89 and DC-625025-89.  These cases refer to civil actions taken by the Leonard Shaw Bail Bond Agency against Timothy J. Eustace of 453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607. 

453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607, is the same address used by Assembly candidate Timothy J. Eustace.  Could the Timothy J. Eustace with the two outstanding judgments be Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace?

Who is the other party in the case?  Who or what is the Leonard Shaw Bail Bond Agency?  Well, they are now known as Kirk Shaw Bail Bonds.  The company website advertises that they are "directly across from the Bergen County Jail" and have "24-hour service."  Here is a look at their website:

http://www.kirkshawbailbonds.com/

Who uses a bail bond company?  To explain that, here is a video by a well-known New Jersey attorney:

So what we have here are two outstanding judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace, by a bail bond company.  These relate back to two civil cases in which, apparently, Timothy J. Eustace owed something to the bail bond company.  This could relate back to a criminal case, for which the bail was needed.

Now it is important to understand that these court records are maintained by the same allies of the Democrats who have taken it upon themselves to dictate the education funding formula in New Jersey.  These people are idiots, so there is every possibility that the Court's records -- just like the Court's judgments -- are full of crap.  In a phrase, these people suck large, so this might be just another of the Court's balls-ups.

Of course, Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace of 453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607, can probably set the record straight.  So, Brother Eustace, if you would like to, we'd be happy to.
