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?

Just came back from the demonstration Rally in support to the Health Care Reform.
Because we reside in the crazies base County, we took it to the street. It was amazing, fulfilling and effective, even when we are out numbered by the republicans. We delivered our message in a very peaceful and civil manner. We had no media coverage. I guess it is not fun to cover anything positive, if we were chanting Nazi, Hitler, and all the crazy stuff like take back our country, I am sure that would be attractive. Peace is not something that gets coverage.

Health care Rally 276
Cars were honking in support. It felt so good, just to push back the crazies. Here are the pictures I took.

 

Health care Rally 283

Have you ever felt a need to make your voice heard in the middle of the crazy mob, who appear to be so taller than yourself and look like Bullies? Imagine the picture of this crazy monster with big ugly teeth threatening to kill you if you speak the truth, and then you are there thinking , should I take a risk to fight this gorilla or not? Then your guts tells you, just go out and fight, do not get intimidated by the size of your opponent.

You bundle up off you go for a fight? That is what I did today. It feels so refreshing to preach the truth and facts to the people who have drunk the cool aid from Fox News and Glenn Beck.

 In the middle of the battle ground, the entire ground chants in support of your message, cars honking in support, thumbs up.

Health care Rally 281

That is exactly what happened today. You never know, how many people you may change, until you take part in educating the uninformed public. I just realized today that we have a good crowd in Warren County supporting the health Care Reform. Be like a brave turtle, facing the lion.

Health care Rally 284

Of Course, I was doing paparazzi, since we had no coverage. Our county is controlled by Republicans, so they refused to give us publicity. The Radio, News papers are all controlled by Repubs and we had zero reporters, they told us in advance that we are on our own.

So I did my amateur photographing, but what the heck. I did it.

Health care Rally 269

This was my favorite poster. Holding it is Janice Swack running for Council in Independence. She was the organizer of this demonstration against the tea baggers .Here she is

Health care Rally 268

She is an Icon for Democrats in this county dominated by holy holy elephants.

Health care Rally 262

 We had one oposition who came to disrupt us, trying to sell his opposition message. We watered him down with facts, and obvious questions.

The dems are not putting up with any nonsense, they are fighting back in a civil and peaceful way. Our anti-Health care reform was this old guy screaming at us, chanting Obama is a socialist .

 Health care Rally 272

It was not easy with him because, our message overshadowed his negativity. He could not give an answer to what type of insurance he had. I asked him whether he was on medicare, you would have seen how we watered him down, with facts about health care, and told him medicare is a government run program. He immediately zipped his big mouth.

Health care Rally 273

See what happens when you use facts to challenge a lie. These wing nuts have no facts, Flood them with facts, they have no answers. That is why you can’t be afraid. They use violent words to scare people, but when you confront them with facts, they are cowards.

Look at how embarrassed he looks after learning the truth about medicare. Duh

Health care Rally 274

Health care Rally 261

Small group but effective with the right message. For this county, this is pretty a good sign for change.

Health care Rally 277

 I walked by and took a pic of  supporters, telling their personal stories and word of encouragement.

Health care Rally 278

Peaceful people. Do you see any craziness here?

Health care Rally 260

After this, my girl friend and I went to a near by out door  free concert , to take our chances to handout our health Care reform flyer’s. We were successful. Check the crowd in this county, these are holy holy you know people? Anti Obama. But you will be shocked. I am sure many of these folks  are on medicare. What is laughable folks is olsd folks who are against Government take over, are on medicare. 

Health care Rally 006

 

Health care Rally 005

Anyway, all I can say is Fox News , Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh are misleading people in this country. All these old folks , do spend their days listening to fox news. What a shame.

Time to go to bed. Work day Monday. It’s 1.12 AM now. I am tired.


Wanda made my day with her jokes. I am enjoying my mothers day with the jokes

I told Rush, at some point that he sounds like Bin Laden when he keeps hoping America to fail. Thank God I was not the only one thinking the same about Rush. Thanks Wanda for saying it right.

Keep enjoying one more

flash back to 2006

Speech at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner (2006)

Colbert is one guy with  the guts to tell the truth to GOP.


A citizen paying attention says;

I still can’t figure out how a person with 5 senses can go out ranting about the sitting president who was elected by the people for the people.Claiming he is a bastard and not American.That includes anyone who voted for President Obama according to Rush Limbaugh. I am having a problem understanding the cry from the right wing. What do they mean in “take back our country” slogan in all this crazy thinking of the Republicans. There is so much craziness going around the GOP. I am not going to take it as a joke. Something is wrong with their brains.

My head is spining since morning after reading

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/4/11/718888/-Hate-mail-Saturday

I am happy Kos showed us all that, and I encourage him to continue bringing it out in the open.

At the same time it made me feel like we are still in the middle of the elections, it is not yet over.

Thank you KOS. I am going back to do my work.
There is a reason we all worked so hard for change of leadership, I think, I am willing to do that for the next eight years.

This is a reason I chose to vote for an adult in the white house.
The kids that led us into this mess do not get it.

Refresh your heads and accept what you see in the white house. It is sooooooooooo refreshing. Let me share it.

Bigotry playing big with the Republican party and its followers. So sad, and shameful indeed.

Like I said before,

The Republican party and all followers should be required to change their brains in order to make it easier for Americans to deal with them.

I know some people said it is not a good idea that KOS posted those hate e-mails on the front page. Hey guys this is not fiction,it is reality we are dealing with. No need to cover blankets on problems. We all need to see what is been thrown out in the dark, and learn to handle issues like that. Who knows, it may be your neighbor with the crazy thought of shooting liberals, or anyone who supports Obama, or anyone who looks different from wingnuts.

For those of you who did not read kos’s thread. This is one of the hate e-mail from the right that he posted, you can read more on KOS’s thread. Thankyou Kos for posting it.

Hate E-mail from the right:

I read your pathetic Oboma ass kissing site and you people are fucking morons. I saw you on TV and you look like a little smug faggot. I think all liberals should paint themselves black and find some black ass to have gay sex with. You people are a disgrace to the white race and to America. Your bastard president and he is a bastard cuz his white mom was a single whore when she got knocked up with him. He is a one termer, he lied, he duped, he brainwashed Americans and now they are GETTING it. You live by your whacked out biased polls, I dont need fucking numbers to see what Americans minus the liberals think of this disgusting person and his dog face bucked teeth wife. THEY ARE HATED. I CAN ONLY HOPE HE DROPS FUCKING DEAD .”

This reminded me of why I supported Barack Obama to become the POTUS. Just what I read in those e-mails, was a big reminder of why we went out in numbers to vote for a democrat, and for that matter Barack Obama.

We the majority spoke louder on November, 4 2008.
Screw you guys, your hatred and threats are disgusting, with your stupid tea bag parties. Your threats against president Obama are dispicable and shameful. Go check yourselves when you go tea bagging and screw all of you nut cases. You lost brains with the obsession of supremacy egos.

So all democrats,or anyone who voted for President Obama is on the Satan side? ..and Republicans and Evangelicals are for the heavens?
Do Republicans know that not only blacks, but also whites voted for Obama?

guess what!
President Barack Obama is our POTUS:
take it or go hybernating somewhere in some dark holes.
May be after your Tea bagg’n parties, you will realize that actually president Obama has cut taxes for 95% middle class Americans.
It’s your time to pay, we did out time. If you are crying for the 5% rich tax cut. Hard luck.
Too bad so sad my friends.We the majority, will continue to fight and believe in what is right for every American. Equal rights and opportunities.


President Obama Still making us proud overseas

President Obama and First lady Michelle well received

That is our President Yeah!!!!!


One of the most disappointing moment. Rep. Mike Doogan could not hide himself any longer.

What a shame!!!!
Rep. Mike Doogan: You have acted like  Judah  who sold Jesus.  I am sure your friend, who have been crying over bloggers in the pajamas must be very excited with your help. Right? 

Guess what . You just exposed yourself.

How do you feel when you look in the mirror?

Basically you have not only put mudflats’ ‘s life and career in danger but her entire family.

In short we should be scared of guys like you who can not take critism I guess. Wow.

This is America not Africa.  right?

Was  Rep. M Doogan  jelousy of mudflats popularity with her blog?

Some of these  guys  forget that people put them in the positions they are in.

We will watch Mike Doogan in the next elections.

Thanks for exposing yourself. You may step on Mudflats but you are not   shutting down the bloggers in the entire world.
If you belonged to the opposition, we would understand. But this coming from a democrat, is shameful. I am so speechless.

This is a shame. Really a Big shame.

and tips from

Alaska Dispatch blog.

If you’re so inclined to carry this further, here is some helpful information that just might get Mr. Doogan some feedback about his actions!

If you want to really spread the word, you should email the Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics. Their emails are:

Representative_John_Coghill@legis.state.ak.us Representative_Berta_Gardner@legis.state.ak.us
Senator_Gary_Stevens@legis.state.ak.us

Here’s the email the cperson who commented sent to the Joint Ethics Committee:

Dear Reps. Coghill and Gardner and Sens. Stevens and Wagoner,

You may or may not be aware of this but a member of the Alaska House of Representatives, Rep. Mike Doogan, has taken it upon himself to trample upon the privacy of a citizen of Alaska.

Rep. Doogan recently unilaterally and maliciously revealed the identity of an anonymous female blogger who writes the blog Mudflats. Rep. Doogan’s actions were reprehensible and will involuntarily expose this poor woman and her family to the harsh light of the public media spotlight.

Please find below my email to Rep. Doogan complaining about his deplorable actions. As members of the Alaska legislature’s Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics, I hope that you will take this matter under advisement and consider how poorly these actions by Rep. Doogan tarnish the image of the Alaska legislature.


Tammy Bruce calls the Obamas , “trash in the white house”.

Tammy Bruce, guest host for Laura Ingram’s radio show, had some harsh words for First Lady Michelle Obama.

Discussing the first lady’s visit to a Washington D.C. classroom last week, Bruce incredulously recalled Obama’s story about wanting to get A’s in school and called out her use of a “weird, fake accent.”

“That’s what he’s married to,” Bruce said. “…You know what we’ve got? We’ve got trash in the White House. Trash is a thing that is colorblind, it can cross all eco-socionomic…categories. You can work on Wall Street, or you can work at the Wal-Mart. Trash, are people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy…”

End of quote
Tammy is the biggest loser and fool I have ever known. Michelle is authentic. She does not fake anything, You loser.

This is very insulting and bigotry at its best.

I have few sentences for Tammy:
1. Get a life
2. hook up with Rush, he is still single. I am sure you would make a good pair.
3. Tammy is a no-body but a trash in the can

4. You are envious and Jelousy that Michell is the first lady. Get over it. She is the first lady of the united state of America. The American people  picked the right family for the  white housse. This is the best first lady. She is smart, real, authentic and beautiful.
Jelousy people like Tammy can not hide the dark bigotry side.  Michelle is smart and beautiful. Even if the president was a single man, Tammy would be the last person he would go for.

Tammy you are a biggest loser in this world. Michelle Obama rocks.

Keep pinching your face, President Obama will never look or consider you to be the first lady loser.

Your friends went after a young girl Megan McCain, calling her all sorts of names, when actually Megan sounds like she has more brains than some of you older women in the GOP.
I was never and I will never be a GOP. But those attacks on Megan McCain, made me grind my teeth, especially coming from unattractive old women.

What a bunch of sore losers, I am begining to know, including Tammy Bruce.

Tammy sounds like she got a D in college, that is why women like Michell Obama is a big threat to her.

Tammy Bruce, you can now marry Rush.
