Peter, perhaps your suggestions should be put to a vote. Wanna guess the outcome?

We were all set to have only one pickup in the summer, then we had a HUGE number of complaintsRead More(like 7). Council voted to revert back to 2x pickup. The ironic part is a certain councilperson lives next to me, and they can almost never get the garbage /recycling straight. I've got their cans by my house out almost all week long.

I appreciate the Congressmen getting he 30 day window extended so that the result would be theRead Moresame. It almost seems like they care. This survey is a shame and nothing more than then a search for oil off the coast of NJ. Since our Governor and our Congressmen are more considered pandering to their backers, expect the Pine Barrens to be sucked up soon and watch fish die off the coast in truck loads. Endangered whales? Screw'em. http://www.scottneumanforcongress.com with Fred LaVernge in the 3rd. Time for a change from people who live in Ocean County or have strong ties to the shore.

By the way, does this feel like an announcement from a Si-Fi book "We sent you notice, it'sRead Moreno t our fault if you didn't see or hear it" just before the earth was blown up to make way for a highway through space.
I was asked why I would stand in the way of science by a "driller".....myRead Moreanswer? Becaus e there is no way the citizens of NJ will stand for drilling rigs offshore, for starters, so it's a wasted effort, and because the "science" under which the project is taking place is a shroud over what is essentially a geological survey for fossil fuels. If you are an Environmental Scientist, that comes with an implied requirement of Environmental Stewardship. This is a destructive process, with permanent ramifications for the ecosystem off our shores. There is even an effort to "spin" this that it's okay to perform these tests once the tourist season is over, because the migrating mammals won't be in the area...REALLY? The waters off the Jersey shore are, not surprisingly, like a "Toll Booth" in the Gulf Stream. A basic understanding of ocean currents, migration, and the damage that can be done by exposure to intense sound would be sufficient to raise objections...but, apparently, large checks from the "drill, baby, drill" crowd were sufficient to cause this to go forward. There was no law on the books to stop this. That is why the "APPLICATION FOR INJUNCTION" failed. There is plenty of science to back up the results, but NOAA signs the permission slip, and Department of Commerce pulls their strings...do I have to lay it out any more simply? NO Federal Legislator from NJ has stepped up to introduce legislation enhancing the protection of the fisheries, or of the marine mammals - which, were it passed into law, could at least cause an injunction to be put in place until the courts made a further ruling. The grant monies subsidizing this research? Follow the money. Proposal and adoption of emergency legislation could have been done back in April...HOW MANY INCUMBENTS could have acted? BOTH SENATORS, for starters. I am not in office, yet, but that would have been among my first moves in this issue - a moratorium on seismic blasting in the presence of endangered marine life (a start) - the Atlantic Right Whales ALONE are sufficient cause). I intend to win our District Three race. Has anyone - including every single NJ Federal office holder - proposed Federal legislation to block this? No. Would it pass? Big Oil Dollars would work hard to thwart it, so it would depend on how much pressure could be brought to bear on the present office holders - every single one of which in the HOUSE are seeking re-election this year. FRANK LoBiondo - Frank Pallone - Chris Smith - Jon Runyan (yes, I know, according to your letters, you only have 6 months left in your "tenure", but you COULD ACT) - Senators Booker and Menendez....If YOU won't write the Bill, will you at least SUBMIT IT FOR CONSIDERATION if I DO? Put your own names on it, for all I care. I learned long ago that it's amazing what you can accomplish if you don't give a damn about who gets the credit. I never in a million years would have believed that this is where the issue would end up - with the approval of the DOC for a "take" of up to 10% of the remaining population of Atlantic Right Whales as "bycatch" treated as an "acceptable loss". Frank P - you know how to reach me - let's talk.

The information I posted are facts from various studies and backed by the Center of AmericanRead MoreProgres s. Abused women are too controlled to protect themselves with firearms. It has been proven over and over again that the presence of a gun in a DV situation will likely end with a dead woman, children and often by standers. Abused women are highly unlikely to be able to have the freedom or means to acquire a firearm. The Bills posted above are real bills. When 40% of all guns sales are made without a background check in America through internet sales, private sales, gun show sale; it is impossible to implement any of the laws that are on the books.
