“I am what most would call liberal leaning.... but here is my take on this issue... everything isn't about race as some are trying to make this... want to wine and cry? then get out.... I served our country for 22 years, had to have a military haircut the whole time....tapered on the sides and back... was able to have a beard for the first nine years then we lost that and I had to shave everyday til I retired...so quit your whining ladies....”

“As I have said many times.... I don't know CC was directly involved, but his bullying tactics sent the message to his subordinates that this type of thing was okay..

As for the Sandy funds you are spot on I think... when places like Atlantic City and a few other Shore towns get nothing from Sandy aid and towns not affected by the storm get some of the funds, you know something is wrong..”

“No evidence released to the public yet... Kelly, Wildstein, and any others who havening testified yet... may have something that implicates Christie.... and if he didn't have any direct role in this incident... his bully mentality led those working for him to believe it was acceptable to conduct business like this... I don't know about you, but I don't want my political leaders insulting their constituents when they disagree with them and I don't care which party they are representing...”

“Becky read Valerie's post again.... She know there is NO DRAFT.... her point is if we did have a draft and anyone's children could be drafted fewer would support the idea of war.... But the one thing I will point out is... even IF we had a draft... the wealthy would find a way to keep their children out of harms way..... they did it when we did have the draft....”

“You are correct. For example, our former Vice Pres. Dick Cheney received 4......repeat 4.....draft deferments. Why? He was a university student.......for 6 years......going from one school to another. When asked why he received so many deferments, he replied, "I had better things to do". Nice!”

“First of all, this isn't about Obama or even Bush... But since you brought up the unemployment numbers.... Be honest with yourself...... the unemployment numbers soared upwards while Bush was still President and didn't level off until Obama was in office for about 10 months.... And since you bring up those numbers explain why NJ is lagging behind our neighbors during his tenure....”

Brenda Anderson on Mar 6, 2014 at 16:48:56

“Yes democrats did take control in 2007 and job losses were in 2008 and even more in 2009. Our largest month of job losses was in NOV 2008 when Obama was elected -- clearly businesses knew what was coming. We lost the most jobs in 2009 with most of them in 2nd half of 2009 after Obama stimulus was passed.
Re NJ -- dont now and dont care. I do know the GOP states in south are doing the best with over 80% of all jobs going to those states. Texas leads the nation #1 in job and economic growth. Our jobs are NEW jobs to TX which are coming here from other states.”

“Nope. You don't have to be born on American soil. All it requires is that one parent be an American citizen, which his mother was/is. Think about situations where an American family has moved overseas, temporarily: their children, regardless of where they're born, are American citizens.

He realized it was not wise to remove Saddam, Clinton also realized this... George W. Bush and Co. didn't, so they fabricated and handpicked evidence of WMDs and sold it to Congress and the American public and many brought into it.... I didn't and was called a coward, traitor, unpatriotic, etc...... for not supporting the invasion of Iraq... well I am a 22 year veteran and far from any of those things...
