It is Easter Weekend Saturday, nice and sunny, warm about 70 degrees. I am at the Democrats Head quarters doing my volunteer work. I am hanging out in the office with a good companion, my dog Smokey.

What is going on in NJ 5th District – Warren County?
This year Democrats candidates are running for office;
Tod Theise, who ran for office as a democrat freeholder candidate against Angelo Acceturo, is running for US Congress in NJ district 5 against the GOP ” god” Scott Garrett who votes “NO” on every policy that benefits the middle class.
Tammy Smith, who ran last year for NJ assembly in the 23rd district, is running for Surrogate and Robert Gara is running for Sheriff.
I call these candidates “brave hearts.”
On the other hand, the GOP opposition is going crazy with their Tea party rallies against the Health Care. A Tea Party Rally is scheduled for April 10 2010 at 10.00AM in Warren County headed by State Senator Mike Doherty.

See what we are up to in Christie’s base counties

Doherty ( R-Warren-, Hunterdon) and assembly woman Alison Littell McHose are calling on New Jersey attorney General Paula Dow to join attorneys in other 14 states in a lawsuit against Health Care which was signed into law last week claiming it is unconstitutional. No republican in either house of congress and senate supported the bill.

HYPOCRICY: GOP Spending is Not Wasteful until Democrats Spends.
Now try to match the two. Saturday is a Tea party Rally against health care in Warren County, at the same time,  GOP- Warren county Board of  freeholders approved the $7.3 million for the purchase of 445 Marshall street in Phillipsburg and some renovations on the existing Warren county community College. For clarity sake, I am pro- education, and I welcome any expansion to Warren County College, because this will benefit our students who are future leaders.
..But what I have a problem with, is the hypocrisy of the Grand Obstruction Party, who wants to have it both ways. This is the state with a Republican governor who is panting over Democrats spending and cutting all state education Aid.

His Budget cuts has also led to the closure of  Psychiatric Hospital.

Along with other cuts announced , Gov. Chris Christie called for closing the 310-bed hospital with about 600 employees in Lebanon Township by June 2011. Many have called this as a reckless move by Govenor Chris Christie.

Also, last week Christie was in montclair addressing high school student at Montclair high school, explaining himself out why he is cutting education funding. Here is the GOP governor talking to students last week. Remember essex county is highly dominated by Democrats, and that is where he targeted most of his cuts. Not Warren County.

WEST ORANGE — “Facing a dramatic cut in state aid, West Orange schools plan to lay off 84 staff members, including 33 teachers, to make up the difference.”

In Warren County ( Christie’s base) the project worth $7.3 Million just got approved, at the same time, this is the same GOP County and tea party groups who are protesting the government for passing health care , while their GOP governor Christie, is crying foul over the state deficit.
Is  this the same governor who will pay for half the price of the approved Project in Warren County?

 Are Christie’s cuttings only targeted in the heavily Democrat populated counties? What is this game about?
It is ok for GOP to spend, but it is not ok when it is a Democrat coming up with any type of project. This is hypocritical, or should I say playing double standards to win voter support on both sides?

This is where I have a problem with GOP leadership it is all about bulling people;

Christie is still out fighting the teachers in NJ, what I find troubling is. Why can’t he fight his own base as well? How can Chris Christie look into people ‘s eyes and say he is trying to balance the deficit by cutting spending , when his base is benefiting, by advocating for the rich?

 According to the Warren County Reporter and express times, the $7.3 million project will be financed by the bond ordinance, and half of the project will be financed by the state, since the state is responsible for the debt service on bond through the chapter 12 state funding program, which was created to help finance facilities at county colleges since colleges are not permitted to take on debt. Hmmm.

What is wrong with this picture? Closing the hospital, and substuting it for something else that can wait until the state is out of recession?

Listen Tea Bags; you cannot have it both ways.
I love Warren County; especially living in the midst of the opposition is so much fun.


Well this is another Sunday that I feel compelled to to share my thought on what I read, witness, gather and listen to.

Way back in June I wrote in detail about the election battle for the  republican Candidates. Chris Christie battled with Steve Lonegan for Governor.

June 2  was a big day. Yes I had the results starting from the smallest office to Governors results. I was just lazy writing about it, since it was all over the news.

Instead, I decided to join campaign rallies in support for my blue President and Gov Jon Corzine although his rating is dropping. That does not mean I like Jon Corzine’s property taxes, but between Chris Christie and Gov Corzine, I would lather keep Corzine.

I will show you some of the pics I took. I can not think of New Jersey turning Red. That will be a night mare. Imagine Arizona in NJ.

Its less than 8 Months since President Obama took office, and yet it seems donkeys have already forgotten about the destruction of the past eight years under the republican leadership. It seems to me they have gone hibernating for now. Some of us who will be awake till 2012,  need to give those sleeping a pill to stay awake.

Yes Iam not a big fan of the Governor, but Chris Christie is not better. I would rather have Corzine than Chris Christie.

 I am calling Democrats who are sleeping in New Jersey, Please wake up!!!!, Do I need to be on my tiptoes again to give you warnings? Stay Awake.

Here is how Democrats are getting dug by the opponents:

“Is by systematically destroying them from the inside out. The FBI. The US Attorney. The AG’s office all looking in cooperation for corruption in government means bad news for Democrats because places like Hudson, Essex and Camden are prime locations for such nonsense. You can’t beat them at the polls, so you cripple them by exposing the corruption and taking away their political legs in the fall. The corruption appears so widespread that credible Democrats run for cover and suburban Democrats get beat at the polls simply by guilt through association. Other Democrats simply cross party lines at the top-of-the ticket and Christie benefits. This is how Democrats were contained like communists in the 1950’s. It’s a policy of political containment by the GOP. Vote Column “A” – All the way!”

Elephants aren’t playing in New Jersey, especially in district 23. As I wrote before, it is flooded with the holy holy  self righteous elephants.

 Which Elephant took the thrown?

happy-elephant-01

The answer is:

 Freeholder John Murphy Endorses Chris ChristieChris Christie in the back endorsed by the Freeholder John Murphy.

He Defeated Steve Lonegan for Governor , and yes Chris Christie came with a bang leading in polls. Oh Boy, just when Gov Corzine thought he was winning back his  popularity by inviting  Vice President Joe Biden and President Obama to Campaign with him, another  headache came in just this past week. 4 independent candidates jumps in for Governor race. The most popular ones are Gary Steele and Chris Daggett.

I met Gary Steele Yesterday Sat 1 at the Warren County Fair, and of course you know how naughty I can be. I took some good shots. 

Independent Candidate Gary Steele at Warren County Fair  flooded his flyers in 20 minutes . Every single person I saw at the fair was given a Vote for Gary Steele for governor hand fun.

 Gary Steele  took Chris Christie’ Cronies by suprise at the fair. It was something they did not expect, and they had no idea how he came to the Warren County Fair, from Morris Town.

I wished Governor Corzine or his campaign reps were present at our Democrat booth with his flyer’s. Unfortunately we had no show.

 The democrat sitting Governor has a big challenge. He should not ignore certain areas in New Jersey. Warren County may be dominated by elephants, but they are so many donkeys in this area that needs help. There are 13 candidates running as Democrats in warren county, except they are treated like step children with no support from the party. Does’nt  that show how courageous these few democrats are,in a community were republicans are the majority?

In my own opinion Democrats still stands a chance to claim back the sits? I am so proud of these courageous donkeys who are not afraid of challenging the elephants in this county. Really.

The truth is the know blue state of New Jersey faces a challenge by the holy holy self rightious elephantswove-ring from Warren County.

121474-Jamaican-Donkey-0 The Question is, Is New Jersey going to be a red State, independent or Stay blue?

 For now it is a 50/50 chance. Donkeys in New Jersey need to wake up.  Do not take things for granted.

No sleeping or hibernating. If donkeys keep going the way they are going, they will wake up in November with a red State of New Jersey, headed by the Fake holy elephant, now claiming to be independent.  

For those of you who do not know Chris Christie here is the video.

and here below  is the Democrat Sitting Governor Jon Corzine facing challenge

Governor Cozine.

After the election the Approval rating poll for Democrat Gov Jon Corzine declined dramatically where Chris Christie took the lead in New Jersey and still leading. That should be a wake up call for Governor Corzine/ Two things are happening here, either democrats in NJ are not happy with our Governor, or they are still drunk with the presidential elections.

See it for yourself.

My Question is  What are Democrats thinking in New Jersey?  Something Wrong here. Wake up Democrats. Two things, either the Obama Administration should give Jon Corzine a Diplomat job, and pave a way for somebody else to run, or the governor should campaign vigorously across the state without leaving out certain areas.

That is my friendly advice.


Sorry guys, I tried to stay away from talking politics , but this issue is hard for me to ignore.  I thought  I could close my eyes and not read anything political, but I was greeted every morning on my way to work by these guys standing at every coner of the street. Yes they look like democrats right?Elephants and Donkeys 071 It was too much that I started taking pictures of the dress code. 

Elephants and Donkeys 031

I will show you more as I go on.

For a long time New Jersey as been populated with the donkeys and  known to be a blue state.  But wait a second, not the entire New Jersey is blue.  Where can you find elephants? follow me…….
I am sure you are all  aware that, New Jersey primary elections are on and  heating up on  the Republican side .

We  shall know by the end of the day which elephant african-elephant2Elephants 1

elephant 2

is going to face the121474-Jamaican-Donkey-0  Donkey.

Ouch the Elephants aaa_elephantare killing each other for  Governor office, State Senate ,NJ State assembly and Freeholder slots.

The problem is that, the elephants are trying to fool voters with the dress code as they line up across the state. The dress code is amazingly misleading.

I am sure , this game seem to work for  the elephants in Warren County. Elephants are reliazing that voters are more likely to vote Democrat than Republican.  So they decided to dress themselves in blue, standing at every coner of the road like below.

Elephants and Donkeys 005

In the mean time donkey_kickDonkeys are gearing up to face the challengers.Elephants and Donkeys 058

 

 

In Warren County, where  minority are Democrats,  and still fighting  for change in this County, as you can see in the picture they are few, but tough enough to fight for change for Warren County. The good part is  they know it is un up hill, but they are’nt giving in.

Elephants and Donkeys 055

 

Warren and Hunterdon Counties so dominated by Holy me the King without sin,  if you know what I mean.

 

Within New Jersey there is a portion called Warren and Hunterdon Counties in North West Jersey close to PA heavily dominated by the Holy Holy Elephants happy-elephant-01known to dress in red. elephants_kids_shirt-p23555213628630993834ej_525 Intersting stuff. One would think Elephants would be happy to campaign with their own logo and Color “red” since they think being an elephant is so cool and holy. But oh no you are in for a suprise what I am going to show you in a second. Naughty me.

Check the signs. What do you think? Elephants or Donkeys?

Elephants and Donkeys 104

Then Marcia Karrow running for Senate  plays double faced check in places with the far right she lines up with a cute red dress,  in areas with more independent mixed up with few donkeys, she quickly picks her blue dress

Elephants and Donkeys 102

 Karrow is now standing with a big smile at this coner in a blue  dress, weaving at people like myself , VOTE FOR ME  iam a donkey too.Elephants and Donkeys 032

You now see the reason I took pictures right?

 For sometime I  wondered why the two parties picked the symbol for elephant and Donkey for logo, in addition to Red and Blue color respectively. I found very cool stuff that I will share later, but for now, I just would like to share my observation, since I am paying a lot of attention to current affairs and my environmental changes around my community.

With my search I found this definition very interesting ,

The Democrats think of the elephant as bungling, stupid, pompous and conservative — but the Republicans think it is dignified, strong and intelligent. On the other hand, the Republicans regard the donkey as stubborn, silly and ridiculous — but the Democrats claim it is humble, homely, smart, courageous and loveable.”

Well said.

One would think  New Jersey is highly  populated with Dr Donkey121474-Jamaican-Donkey-0 

Wait a minute except  Warren and Hunterdon counties District 23, where Chris Christie ,now running for Governor, with his Republican opponents, Steven Lonegan and Rick Merkt. Who ever  wins the primaries on Tuesday June 02 , will face off with the current democratic governor Jon Corzine. 

Running for NJ State Senate,  Micheal Doherty and Marcia A Karrow both Warren and hunterdon County residents, where the elephants are populated.  For Warren County FreeHolder, there are two slots that have been dominated by the elephants.  Everet A Chamblin, who is running for re-election is going to face Democrat challenger Adam Fittings and for one year term  Tod Theise is challenging the elephant that will win the primary battle.

elephant 2         Four  Elephants are fighting for one year unexpired. Elephants are like ants running for this office.

Here are the names of contenders:  Betty Schultheis ( Republican), Jason Joseph ( Rep) ,Richard Mach and Angelo Acceturo. Four of them and grinding each other to death for un expired Freeholder slot.

The winner will face a New born Warren County Democrat ( former Republican) Tod Theise in November. The rest positions are all Republicans in Warren county. They control everything, and I am told Diversity is not highly welcome in this county.

So sad. But the few donkeys that are being born are standing up for change. I am proud of this small group.

In conclusion , I would say, although Warren and Hunterdon county is dominated by Republicans ,with very few aaa_donkeydonkeys   ,dancing to the tunes of  aaa_elephant

elephants, t hey are geared to fight for change.

The proplem is that, the elephants keep thinking they are the  center of the universe and deserve the kingship. The elephants keep under estimating donkeys ‘s ability to fight back. They totally forgot how they got globered on Nov 4 2008, by that one.

Donkeys are still pushing for change in this area, and may crush the Elephants that seem to bully few donkeys like this: 

Ouch Ouch !!!!!!! one day like Nov 4 2008
