Governor Murphy and Democrats in the New Jersey Legislature are working hard to ensure that Cory Booker is our next President no matter if we want him or not. Who needs elections in what has become Soviet Jersey?
This week we began the rebranding of the blog to The Informed Conservative. A new web site is being developed and our Facebook page was created. This week we discussed Cory Booker’s potential run for President in 2020, Democratic leadership in NJ rushing through a constitutional amendment that will rig the legislative redistricting process, an Asbury Park Press editorial regarding marijuana legalization, Vincent Squire’s “Season of Giving”, Murphy accomplishing his dream of making New Jersey a sanctuary state, a discussion about leaving NJ or staying and fighting Murphy’s destructive agenda, hundreds of jobs and millions in tax revenues leaving with Honeywell and Murphy focusing his time outside of New Jersey.
It was a week of relaxation and family in New Jersey this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Still we covered a few important items.
U.S. Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker a proponent of criminal justice reform has indicated his support of a bill introduced in the Senate on November 15, 2018. Booker has said “Having a felony on your record is a lifetime sentence. You can’t get pell grants, you can’t get food stamps, you can’t get business licenses, you can’t get jobs. You have a lifetime sentence. This system is toxic in every way”. Booker appears to support reducing sentencing guidelines and hiding criminal records from potential employers. Perhaps Mr. Spartacus should focus on preventing crime not making our workplaces and streets less safe by giving criminals a pass.
It was an interesting week in New Jersey from the $15 minimum wage moving forward to the state’s failed response to a relatively small snow event.
U.S. Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker, who I am embarrassed to say is from New Jersey, is introducing a bill to give every child born in the U.S. a government funded interest bearing savings account. Let me say that again. Just being born entitles you to an interest bearing savings account funded by the U.S. government according to Senator Spartacus. Much like the $15 minimum wage being pushed by Governor Murphy, State Senate President Sweeney and State Assembly Speaker Coughlin this is another bill that will disincentivize people. Why work hard and save? Why teach your children to be financially responsible and save? Uncle Spartacus has your back!
