    Salary cuts - ala the airlines - to save state jobs.

    Serious evaluation of the value add of all state jobs.

    Productivity increases of state employees.

    Eliminate Pork - the other white meat, if you have why two.

    Eliminate business taxes to get more business to locate in NJ.

    Review of all state programs by a non-partisan (whatever the hell that is) team (composed of mean spirited, pinchpennys)empowered to reduce spending unless overridden by 2/3's vote of legislature.

    let's legalize pot and tax it. that would certainly be a more pleasant way of paying taxes than anything that we now put up with.

    i'd say the same for prostitution, but there's no way to collect that tax w/o ruining the hobby.

    I always assumed that the average speed limit on NJ roads were directly related to the road number.

    Route 80 - 80 MPH
    Route 95 - 95 MPH
    Route 287 - Welcome to the Autobann!

    It's when you hit route 3 and route 23 that things get ugly.

    If Jrose dropped the speed limit thing, I'd vote for him.

    I want

    J1ROSE FOR GOVERNOR!!!!

    Except you gotta tone down that GSP/NJT speeding violation rhetoric. Don't get me started on this car insurance bullshit. That's the great hidden tax in this state.

    And JRMANN. I feel for you, buddy. We gettin' squeezed from all sides and all we're lookin' for is a little pussy. What you're seeing is the Bush Tax Cut tranforming into massive Tax Increases at the state and local level with a corresponding slash in state programs. Let's hope that vice enforcement programs get the ax.

    If you're truly serious about putting an end to LE enforcement of victimless crimes, it can be done - stop voting for Republicrats and Demopublicans. There are political parties (that are on the ballot) that believe that government has no Constitutional or other right to pass laws that interfere with an individuals' right to make a contractual agreement with other individuals (as long as the agreement doesn't infringe on the rights of others). In prostitution, 2 (or more) adults agree peacefully upon a service for a price. No one is coerced or forced into action.
    At the same time, if you want government to leave those involved in the pay-for-sex trade alone, you must be willing to allow others involved in victimless crimes to be free to do so as well. The drug trade is another example where peaceful individuals should be allowed to smoke, snort, ingest or inject any material they wish. After all, you own your own body, the government shouldn't. The idea that government is forcing its political ideal of morality on peaceful individuals is revolting.
    Check out www.lp.org and www.anti-state.com for more information. If you keep voting for the lesser of two evils, you still end up with evil.
    Next November, help legalize freedom and kick the socialist and neo-conservatives to the curb.

    I remember in a macro (or micro) economics class that one teacher said that wealth = buying power. Therefore the more pussy I can afford to buy after I pay all my monthly living expenses, the wealthier I feel.

    I don't know what's sadder -

    The fact that Phantom knew who *********** is without having to think about it

    or

    The fact that JRman calculates his potential financial gain in terms of number of visits with providers.

    or (more importantly)

    The fact that I can relate to BOTH OF THEM......

    I vote for Door #3

    I'm also pissed because I just learned I will not longer be eligible for my NJ Property Tax Relief Rebate check anymore. That's at least two visits to a quality provider each fall.
