MY OPINION

November 02, 2010.

Vote Theise  For Congress. Today is Election Day. Polls are open from 6:00AM to 8:00PM.

  1.  Express Times:- ” Theise makes a more balanced argument to steer the country out of its crisis, and we endorse his candidacy. He is showing a willingness to engage the public and debate in a way Garrett did not in this campaign. While most incumbents claim this advantage, Garrett seems to be taking it to an extreme.”
  2.  Michael Fremer:-We deserve moderate, responsible representation in Washington. We haven’t had that since Marge Roukema retired.”
  3. The Records:- “Democratic challenger Tod Theise would bring a very different voice to Washington, one that deeply understands the district’s conservative base, but is more in line with the state’s social values.   Keeping a close eye on federal dollars and trying to rein in spending where necessary is a wise and good thing to do, but we do not believe a congressman who votes against nearly every bill simply on fiscal grounds best serves the people of the 5th District.”
  4.  Theise will never vote against the will of middle class.
  5.  Theise will fight to bring back 9.8 Billion back to New Jersey from Washington by introducing the law when elected for every state to get a minimum of 75 cents minimum back to every tax dollar we send to Washington.
  6. Theise believe in being our brother and sisters keepers in time of hardships. We rise and fall together as Americans.
  7. Theise is a uniter and not a divider.
  8.  Theise wants tax cuts for Middle class not only the 2% rich. He criticized the Bush Cuts  in contributing to the deficit that brought this country to its knees from 2000 -2008. They contributed to a lot of unemplyment because jobs were shipped abroad.
  9. Theise Supports investing in America and creating jobs for Americans.
  10.  Theise supports the Obama health care law. He believes it has good things in it but should be improved to remove mandates.
  11.   Theise  understands that, punishing people who try to follow the law is not a way todeal with Illegal immigration . The immigration system should improve and  for undocumented immigrants living here, he wants to revive the guest-worker program backed by Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush. For people brought to the United States when they were small children, he supports finding a way for them to apply for citizenship.
  12.  Theise does not support privatization of Social security. Seniors will lose their money if that happened.

 Why Should you retire the incumbent Garrett his  opponent ?

Garrett  voted against everything that benefits middle class Americans. 

  1. He voted against bills to help Hurricane Katrina victims ,
  2.  He Voted against  providing a Medicare prescription drug benefit plan,
  3.   Twice he voted against a bill to ensure medical care and compensation for Ground Zero workers. 
  4. He also has voted repeatedly against extending unemployment benefits.
  5.  He voted against Senior Financial Empowerment Act 2010 H R 3040
  6.  He voted against Consumer protection Act
  7.   He voted against Medical Relef Act H R 3421
  8. He voted Against Small Business Development  H R 1845
  9.  He voted against  Natural Risk Reduction Act 2009 H R 3820
  10.  He voted against Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act H R 4626
  11.  He voted against Energy jobs for Veterans ACT HR 4592
  12.  He voted against Plain Writing Act

The list is too long to list all the bills Garrett voted against. He is fine with collecting Government funded benefits and his big salary.

Did I also mention that he has made a career out of politics? In Warren county the worse thing is cronyism, We have people like Republican DiMao  Assembly man  collecting two checks from the government, funded by the tax payers. typical of the Republican hypocrisy.

They want small government and yet they are always lining up for government jobs. Republican Acetturo lost his election for Freeholder, an antic dealer by profession, now  has been appointed to head the motor vehicle department.. How is that shrinking the size of government? I thought Government is bad…

Coming back to Garrett, he should be sent packing. He does not represent the middle class but  foreign corporations and financial institutions who got the bailout  from the government , as evidenced below:

The Race to Financial Freedom: Taking Back our Fair Share

By: Tod Theise

Aug 30, 2010
Scott Garrett’s op-ed titled, “Race to the Top Gaffe is a Teachable Moment” stands as the best evidence to date that Scott has lost the fire that initially propelled him to Congress. Let’s forget for the moment that Garrett using the Obama-esque phrase “teachable moment” is as out-of-place as Snooki from Jersey Shore quoting Shakespeare. The real problem for those of us residing in the 5th District is that Garrett has absolutely no solution to the fundamental problem sucking the lifeblood out of New Jersey taxpayers.
Garrett states that, “It is absurd that New Jersey should have to apply to get its own money back in the first place. Why should New Jersey’s hardworking taxpayers continue to send money to the U.S. Treasury so that Washington bureaucrats can dole out money to states that have most closely conformed to their ideas of reform?” No Congressman Garrett. What is really absurd is that New Jersey gets back only 61 cents back for every tax dollar it sends to Washington. I’m told that once upon a time when he waged a primary challenge against former Congresswoman Marge Roukema, Scott actually said that it was “immoral” that New Jersey got only 65 cents back on each tax dollar. Well, fast forward a decade later and we get back four cents less. By Garrett’s own standard we are mired in an abyss of fiscal immorality and he has failed his constituents.
We lose 39 cents out of each dollar that we send to Washington. This comes to a whopping $27.5 billion that we “donate” to the other 49 states. To put this sum into perspective, the entire tax revenue stream for our own state budget is roughly $28 billion. New Jersey taxpayers are left footing the bill for two budgets – one for us and one for every other state. Some states get back as much as two dollars for every dollar paid in federal taxes and a recent study showed that Alaska gets back $5.67 in stimulus money for each federal tax dollar. The greatest absurdity in this massive redistribution of our wealth is that Garrett has sat idly by as New Jersey has been relegated to serving as America’s ATM.
My Fair Share NJ Plan and the attendant Fair Share Tax Act (“The Act”) will decisively address this colossal rip-off by returning $9.8 billion back to New Jersey. Under The Act, a minimum return on federal tax dollars would be set at 75 cents. Any state receiving less than the 75 cent baseline will be refunded the difference between their actual return and the baseline. In NJ’s case, the 14 cent differential would translate into $9.8 billion. Can you imagine what we could do with this massive infusion of wealth back into our state’s economy? Forget poorly executed applications to the Feds for $400 million. My plan would allow us to invest far greater sums into not only restoring cuts to public education but bolstering science and math programs critical to our nations retaining its competitive edge in the world. And what about meaningful property tax relief, tax cuts for small businesses to stimulate job growth and expanding programs for seniors?
The bottom line is that my plan doesn’t seek a handout from the government. It simply demands that we get back a fair share of our own hard-earned tax dollars. I call that real reform. And I call it long overdue. The question for Scott Garrett is why should New Jersey’s hardworking taxpayers send him back to Washington when he has failed miserably for eight long years to get back our fair share?

Tod Theise Calls Out Chris Christie on Schundler Firing
Congressional candidate says Schundler was scapegoated for Christie’s costly blunder

Washington, NJ – Democratic candidate for Congress Tod Theise today criticized Governor Chris Christie for firing Education Commissioner Bret Schundler over $400 million in lost education funding. Theise, a former Republican, made it clear that he expects Governor Christie to demonstrate leadership by taking responsibility for the epic blunder that robbed New Jersey schools of the massive allotment of federal funds.

“I knew Bret Schundler back when I was a Republican,” Theise stated. “Whether you agree with Bret or not, he has always been a man of impeccable character and has a heart for people rarely seen in politics. He is not someone who deserves to be thrown under the proverbial bus by a Governor incapable of taking accountability for his own inexcusable mistake.”

Harkening back to the days of Harry Truman, Theise said, “The old expression ‘the buck stops here’ comes to mind. I am disappointed that Governor Christie not only scapegoated Bret, but also tried to blame the Obama administration for his screw-up. A true leader accepts responsibility and seeks forgiveness from those he serves. “

“My thoughts and prayers are with Bret and his family as he has to deal with this regrettable display of cowardice by the Governor. I hope that conservatives, moderates and progressives rally around Bret as a matter of principle and hold Governor Christie accountable for his actions. This incident isn’t about partisanship. It is about right and wrong. And what the Governor did was clearly wrong.”

“Unfortunately, Chris Christie has a tendency to ignore opportunities to bring money back to New Jersey. When I attempted to discuss my Fair Share NJ tax plan with the Governor – a plan that will bring back $9.8 billion to New Jersey – the Governor refused to speak with me, telling me that he would talk to me only if I won the election. I guess I’ll just have to win to get an audience with Governor Christie.

Tod Theise is the Democratic candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 5th District. Tod is a licensed New Jersey attorney and works in Manhattan as a Senior Litigation Analyst at a major international law firm. Tod contributes to our nation’s security by serving as a 1st Lieutenant in the New York Guard and is trained in various areas of emergency management and response. Tod lives in Washington Township (Warren County) with his wife and daughter and their five dogs.

Update: Health care passed with zero Republican vote. Wow.

Senate 56-43. House passed it by 219 to 212 initial and 220-207 second time. Congratulations!!!!!!

If I was a democrat Congressman, and voted No, I would be so embarrassed voting with the party that has crazy followers who are now sending threats to Democrats. Why can’t people respect the voting process. Violent is not the answer.

I blame  FOX news, Sarah Palin and GOP elected officials for playing  dangerous politics in feeding the American people with false information just for the sake of winning the elections. Instigating anger and supporting the party movement with wrong message.

GOP leaders together with the blue dogs should be ashamed of themselves. Really.

Sending  threats and filing law suits to block health care for all is a shame. It is so inhuman.

This is the most coward act I have ever seen in my entire life, using politics of fear and lies. I have no idea what play book the Republican Party is reading.

 Republicans in Democrats clothing  ( Blue Dogs) who voted against the Healthcare Bill will face reality come November elections.

 Voters will send you home on election day-Nov 2nd!”  they will send you back to the private sectors with  a “ballot”.

Democrats voters are civilized people , they believe in a peacefull election, not violent or stealing the ballot to win. If you think people will be afraid to go out and vote because of the GOP and tea party threat and violent tactics, wait and see. November elections are coming up.

Actually, the threats just made me sign up to volunteer for democrats. I am not afraid at all.

Americans sent you to Washington to represent them, not to represent the big Corporations. Shame on you !!!


Sunday, Sept 13 2009:-  I am out to the rally in support of the Health Care Reform. You can’t feed your neighbor’s child, before you feed your own.

There is no reason, any American shoud die with a treatable illness because they can’t afford  insurance. It is disgusting, to see people  acting like monsters  protesting and blocking fellow Americans access to health care, because of their greed. It is so an American.

The tone of these rallies, are driving this country into political insanity. The inflammatory rhetoric is getting out of hand.  America is the multicultural nation, and this coming from the top consevative mouth piece, is scary.

Rush Limbaugh is preaching crap, and no Gop leaders are able to rebut him. He is on air scaring white folks. Also on the left people of color are getting so irritated to see their hope being taken away. So they are becoming very angry too. This is so depressing, and crazy.

Some people may think, I am not being analytical of President Obama. After only 8 months, I do not think it is fair to punch him before he is even given chance to show his leadership.

I can assure you onething, I will start sleeping when the crazies on the right stop being crazy. If you can’t see insanity with the right wing , then there is something wrong with your brains too.  Where is the civilized nation that was admired by the world.

Guys put your acts together, you are acting like idiots. The entire world is watching your craziness. Gee.

This country needs civility and a healthy debate. That is,if you want this country to lead  in the entire world. You can’t preach democracy when you don’t show your democracy in your own crib.

I am here killing myself pushing my kids to go to college and there you are, in this civilized nation  preventing your kids to go to college. It is frightening to see how dumb and stupid some people are in this country. I can’t believe this is the same America I knew, which had a big bang singing to the outside world about democracy. Wow.

What do you think most immigrants are discussing at their dinner table today? I am sure they are saying, boy; is this how stupid and dumb some people in this nation are?

You have 30% of people in this nation who are not proud to have an educated president whose election was historical to the entire world. President Obama is an icon to the young generation. He is a motivation to many young generation . Our children are more inspired  to work hard in school. To me, that is refreshing, to some of you it is like smelling a skunk in your back yard.

One day your own  kids will rebell against your craziness.

Let me give you a nice song. Reminder. Majority Americans spoke loud and clear. Get over it.

 I support President Obama. I do not care what anyone says. He is the president of the United States and he deserves some respect, he was elected by the people.

The more you attack your own president the more, you let the world doubt what you stand for as a nation, you are puting the character of this nation in jeopady.

Your rants just shows how hypocritical you are, and that is how the entire world is going to view this nation unfortunately.
I really cannot reconcile the two. You want to help other countries to be civil and introduce democracy in their countries, when you can’t show a bit of some civility to your own president. I urge Republicans to be civil, because you are making a fool out of yourselves.

By the way, because of the craziness I have seen with the Republican party, you are pushing me to stop doing business in any of your businesses.

I stopped shopping at Walmart, I do not get gas at any Exxon Mobil gas station,  If you are my doctor, and I find out that you are one of these crazies, you are tossed. I am not coming to your practice.  I will shop around until I find genuine physicians, who are not drunk with the Fox news, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mitchell Bauchman, Joe “you Lie” Wilson.

 I am sure there are reasonable physicians in this country who are there to help and care for humans.

The right wing has driven this country into political insanity.  It is hard to believe what I am seeing this craziness. This is getting out of hand, and what is this telling about this great nation?

Look folks, some of you, who are rapped up into racial remarks, check out who supported and worked their butts off to have your current president elected. The socialists, nazi, Hitler and what ever name coming out of your craziness is ridiculous. Check this folks, take a cookie put it in your mouth. You are going to feel so stupid, when you count white folks in this room, who made this election possible.

Here is candidate Obama thanking his staffers. This is the true reflection of how humble president Obama is.

 

I am left with my mouth open……….Never mind  my rant

Who contributed to the $7 Trillion deficit????  

I am not getting the whole thing of this blame game. It seems we are all getting rapped up in this bubble of twisting facts. For the past week I  visited GOP sites  to  have a feel of  other people ‘s views  on issues, especially those who disagrees with me and my opinion.

Unfortunately, the reckless spending, Nazis, Hitler, Socialist, Death Panels, birthers, is all I got.

So I decided to go round and Interview all . My Question was, who  contributed to this deficit that seem to have shifted to animals that never played part in this share? My first stop was with the dogs.

Here are the answers I got. Enjoy. 

Dogs ( Non Political affiliates) they can go either way as long as they are treated well. Also If you sell yourself well they will give you a vote. I stopped by Mr What a f…k  just leave me alone. I am so disgusted with politics says the English Bull dog. His name was James.

English-Bulldogpepper_pug2_jpg_w450 Then I met Grand ma Lucy the pug above. She just shook her head. She is just so suprised how Americans forget that fast. She told me she was independent, and very disgusted with politicians.jakecropped

Well  Jake the dog says; ” Do not blame the dogs, We have nothing to do with the deficit. We kept warning these guys with their reckless spending on staged  Iraq war.” But both parties do not listen to independents, they only want our votes, but not our opinion. So screw them.

Ask Bullwinkle the Banks Customers.

Bullwinkle should do some explaining? File:BullwinkleJMoose.jpg

 Well I know dogs would pick on me because no one wants to turn them into stew, with the bull…t of selling me credit cards with high rates.

I wish I could rob the bank and then line up for federal funding, like the Bank officials did.

  “ask Rodrigo the ground hog: Immigrants

if it is not the dogs or Harriet the bullwinkle, then who created the $7 trillion deficit. Was it Rodrigo the ground hog ( Mexican Illegal Immigrants?

ground hog 035

Ground Hog :- Illegal Immigrants

Well Rodrigo the ground hog says:  “no way,do not blame.  I was hired to work on the farms and construction companies. I worked long hours, and my pay was close to nothing. My wife worked for the big elephant ( Mitt Romney) as  a baby sitter.  She baby sat baby elephants.Baby elephant  My cousin Pedro the hog worked for another elephant.

The only crime I made was to cross illegally. But then i was caught working illegally, and was put in jail.

 I dug under the cells to try to escape but was caught and was deported . The proof is right here. The pic of me in prison.

ground hog no 2 caught 006Well, Although I was jailed and deported, I was hired by the same people who are puting blame on me. Mostly I paid my medical bills by cash. I was hired to build their homes and  to dig their garden , and leased me out at a high cost,  I was only paid $3/hour. So do not blame me for the Deficit . Ask the Wall street the bear, I saw most of them hanging out with my boss. The bear will give you answers.

Wall Street the Bear

Fair Warren County 077

Here is what Wall Street the Bear had to say; “Well Do not blame me, I am just the lobbyst, I donate millions to politicians for their campaign, together we know how to swindle the nation. You can not blame us because we are just in business of the greed and rewarding ourselves hefty bonuses. We love it.

Proof is here my friends: http://www.forbes.com/2009/01/28/wall-street-bonuses-business-wall-street_0128_bonuses.html

And here : http://community.nytimes.com/comments/www.nytimes.com/2009/01/29/business/29bonus.html

But wait a minute, we do not do this by ourselves. This helps our dear  Self Righteous Elephant( GOP). Ask him. actually the big elephant did more damage to this country . The elephants were in power the past eight years, and yes we the bears worked with them to swindle this country. Apart from our heft bonuses, how about the war in Iraq? Was’nt  it staged by the elephants?

Check this out: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-925270800873130790

happy-elephant-01

The elephants  made very irresponsible moves, apart from going to bed with the wall street, he took us to war.

Here is what the Elephant  ( Chenney) had to say,  Wait a minute Bear the wall street, YOU HAVE TO DIE WITH A “NO“.

Cheney accuses Justice Dept of bending to politics in investigating terror interrogators

‘Gentle men’, says the elephant above; we know how to play the scare game. Let us blame all this mess on the Donkey. Trust me, he will not fight back. We have to paint him “NAZIS“, we have to call him “Hitler“, we have to paint him as a “SOCIALIST”,we also have to create a fake birth certificate, to prove that he is not a born US citizen. Paint him as a bad guy for this country. Make sure you vote “NO” to any bill he tries to bring forward. Paint him as a big spender. You will be amazed of how people will turn against him. Target the soft donkeys in both congress and senate.

george-bush-eats-a-kitten

That is our game, to shift blame on others. Eventually, the deficit will be blamed on the donkey, and we shall be free, and back in power. Hurray!!!

With all the blame and name calling the donkey is keeping  it cool with a simple smile, taking one step at at time to clean up the mess created by the above culprits!!!!!!!

barack-obama-official-small

Fiscal Conservative” Cut spending. Does this sound familiar?  Current GOP SONG????????????

Socialist, Hitler,Nazi and  many names  targeted at the the president who only took office on January 20 2009.. Shameful ,Shameful.

Below is comment from some one who is paying attention to politics.

George W Bush killed hundreds of thousands of people with his phony war in Iraq, destroyed the economy, ruled with arrogance and catered only to his “base” while lowering taxes for the wealthy. If a condemnation is in order then the “pastor” has much to choose from in the case of Mr. Bush and his record. However, since the pastor and Bush appear to be of the same political and faith based agenda, then the current President will continue to undergo further attacks by fundamentalist wackos”


Senior Adviser to the President David Axelrod sent this information to me so I can circulate. And please feel free to circulate the facts about the health care reform.

  3. Ends Cost-Sharing for Preventive Care: Insurance companies must fully cover, without charge, regular checkups and tests that help you prevent illness, such as mammograms or eye and foot exams for diabetics.
  4. Ends Dropping of Coverage for Seriously Ill: Insurance companies will be prohibited from dropping or watering down insurance coverage for those who become seriously ill.
  5. Ends Gender Discrimination: Insurance companies will be prohibited from charging you more because of your gender.
