Brian, thanks to your beloved "Universal healthcare", 6 Million Americans have lostRead More their single payer plans while premiums and deductibles have doubled. If you want "positive results", REPEAL this Left Wing socialist disaster before it wipes out whats left of the Middle Class.

JJones that's what happens when you dismantle unions. In a few more years, when the Hispanics andRead More East Indians etc. etc. outnumber Americans in the work force, eight bucks an hour will sound like a king's ransom.

Christies 'Stronger Than The Storm" campaign launched too late. However, the main goal of thatRead More campaign was to advertise "him" not the "shore".

@ Michael Kinzig- if marijuana was legal adults would be able to purchase it in oil form, or use aRead More vaporize which removes the harmful smoking practice which makes marjuana even less harmful than alcohol and cigarettes. "sir"- Ask any hard core druggie if they started with weed. Case closed stoners. Bam!... actually sir the most common answer would be alcohol was the first drug they used, however that drug is legal. here's the problem when debating whether marijuana should be legal. the anti marijuana people start bringing up stuff that is completely irrelevant. such as marijuana being harmful, children, and driving. no pro marijuana people say it is not harmful for you, everyone can agree that done often smoking marijuana is harmful to your health and not usually productive. however the same can be said about alcohol, cigs, and fast food. the second thing is bringing up kids. no pro marijuana people are saying kids should be able to obtain it, it would be the same laws and restrictions as alcohol. you educate kids about the harm of alcohol, cigs, marijuana, and hope they make the right decisions if it is ever offered to them. the same goes for driving, the same laws as drinking and driving will be applied to marijuana. the one thing no one can answer is, if alcohol and cigarettes can be legally enjoyed by adults why cant marijuana? they are all harmful products that can potentially lead to other drugs. why as americans are we free to harm our body with one substance but not another ?

Sort of. Corzine completed his term and lost to Christie when he tried to get reelected. McGreeveyRead More resigned suddenly because he was faced with a sexual harassment law suit. Corzine's use of long term bonds which pushed principal payments out 20 years with huge interest payments every year caused nj to have a huge deficit, all the while he was apparently in a relationship with a union leader with whom he was negotiating. Christie had foolish staffers do something idiotic, but the result was traffic jams for four days for people in Ft Lee. No personal gain, no money flowing in any pockets, just stupid stuff. Do we really want to throw out every elected official who has underlings do something wrong or foolish? Still no evidence he did it. Pretty tough standard to uphold.

Let's be real. This is Hill Wallack doing a favor for Chris Christie.

You rewrite history Paul. There is still more to be discovered and it is about money.

The Scriptures show how true followers of Christ are supposed to conduct themselves and as leadersRead More of the Congregation, they will be judged just as the Scribes and Pharisees were in Jesus day who mislead many.....Again, the point I was making is we should all look into God's Word for the truth and accept it's teaching..not just take the preacher's word at face value without confirming what the Bible says. Ephesians 5:10,11 states "Keep on making sure of what is acceptable to the Lord and stop sharing in the unfruitful works that belong to the darkness, rather, expose them for what they are"....

ATLANTA (AP) — The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Atlanta apologized Monday for building a $2.2Read More million mansion for himself, a decision criticized by local Catholics who cited the example of austerity set by the new pope. Archbishop Wilton Gregory recently moved into a nearly 6,400-square-foot (595-square-meter) residence. Its construction was made possible by a large donation from the estate of Joseph Mitchell, nephew of Margaret Mitchell, author of "Gone With The Wind," the Civil War epic that made his family wealthy. When Mitchell died in 2011, he left an estate worth more than $15 million to the archdiocese on the condition it be used for "general religious and charitable purposes." Gregory said that he has received criticism over the spending in letters, emails and telephone messages. "I am disappointed that, while my advisors (sic) and I were able to justify this project fiscally, logistically and practically, I personally failed to project the cost in terms of my own integrity and pastoral credibility with the people of God of north and central Georgia," Gregory said in a column posted on the website of the archdiocesan newspaper, The Georgia Bulletin. "I failed to consider the impact on the families throughout the Archdiocese who, though struggling to pay their mortgages, utilities, tuition and other bills, faithfully respond year after year to my pleas to assist with funding our ministries and services," he added. The Catholic leader said he will discuss the situation with several diocesan councils, including a special meeting of its finance council. If church representatives want the bishop to sell the home, Gregory said he will do so and move elsewhere. The purchase of the sprawling home was part of a real estate deal made possible by money from Joseph Mitchell's estate. In his will, Mitchell requested that primary consideration be given to the Cathedral of Christ The King, where he worshipped. The cathedral received $7.5 million for its capital fund and spent roughly $1.9 million to buy the archbishop's old home, according to tax records. Cathedral officials are planning to spend an additional $292,000 to expand Gregory's old home so its priests can live there, freeing up space on the cathedral's cramped campus. After selling his home, Gregory needed a new residence. The archbishop said that he made a mistake while designing a home with large meeting spaces and rooms for receptions and gatherings. "What we didn't stop to consider, and that oversight rests with me and me alone, was that the world and the Church have changed," Gregory said. He demolished the one-story home on Mitchell's property, which was donated to the church, and replaced it with a Tudor-style mansion. In January, a group of local Catholics met with the archbishop and asked that he sell the large home and return to his old residence. They cited the example of Pope Francis, who turned down living quarters in a Vatican palace and drives a simple car. "The example of the Holy Father, and the way people of every sector of our society have responded to his message of gentle joy and compassion without pretense, has set the bar for every Catholic and even for many who don't share our communion," Gregory said. ___ Gregory's column in The Georgia Bulletin: http://www.georgiabulletin.org/commentary/2014/03/the-archbishop-responds/

Employers should be told to register for jobs only if they have real jobs to offer. Those offeringRead More P/T and/or minimum wage slots, please don't bother showing up. No job fairs are needed for that.
