    sure, but that philosophy does operate well with balanced budgets
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    I fail to see how widening the gap between rich and poor, and allowing the wealthiest of New Jersey to keep even more of their money makes good economic sense. I'm not asking that they be taxed into the middle class (what a horrible fate), I'm asking that the least of us be given some attention first. He's not being ballsy and telling us all to deal with the cuts because we have no money (which we don't). He's just cutting a lot of the funding that benefits a lot of us, and spending marginally more on benefitting fewer of us. Balancing the budget my ass. More like stacking the deck.

    Because, as you know, the wealthiest of us are the ones suffering through this ZOMFG SKY FALLING "economic crisis."

    You want to make NJ attractive to business? Raise our education standards inside AND outside the classroom. This does not mean raise the funding, I witnessed firsthand the waste that goes on in public schools, and I find it abhorrent, but perhaps we could take a more active roll in what goes on in schools around NJ instead of handing down cuts from on high, and saying "deal with it." The man didn't even get a majority of the vote for fuck's sake. At this point all he's ensuring is a lack of a second Christie term as governor. The people I've been talking to are all pissed off at him, and I live in the Republican southern half of NJ.

    Where are my tax breaks? Where's the funding for the services that benefit me, that I participate in directly as a NJ citizen? Oh wait. That's right. They're being cut by 74% to give tax cuts to the wealthiest NJ citizens. Because they're all itching to give me pay raises and benefits and have the economic situation of the state as a whole in mind
    There is no such thing as separation from God.

    Does anyone still go to the library anymore? Wouldn't the internet be a much more efficient place to find information?

    The purpose of books isn't always to disseminate information.

    Last time I checked, the selection of fiction on the internet sucked.

    It's not just a republican motivation. We lived in Minneapolis for a while (one of the most liberal cities) and many of their community libraries were closed. It is burned in my memory because it's so bizarre. Here I am walking my kids to the library for an afternoon of book fun, and we get to the doors and they're locked, and the sign says, "Library closed due to lack of funding." That's just wrong.

    Governor Christie is a hero.

    Comrades, I wish we could clone him and make him our governor here in the People's Republic of Illinois, where we have an insane 47% budget shortfall.

    These kind, concerned, non-extreme, non-ideological Democrats, they just spend spend spend spend spend spend spend. They are truly the most warmly generous people in the world-- with other people's money, never their own.

    Thank you!
