Remembering Memorial Day

"Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It's a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It's a day to be with the family and remember . . .

And we owe them something, those boys. We owe them first a promise: That just as they did not forget their missing comrades, neither, ever, will we. And there are other promises. We must always remember that peace is a fragile thing that needs constant vigilance. We owe them a promise to look at the world with a steady gaze and, perhaps, a resigned toughness, knowing that we have adversaries in the world and challenges and the only way to meet them and maintain the peace is by staying strong."

More Say It Ain't So

As reported on NJ.com

Four New Jersey men were charged with possession of marijuana following a traffic stop on April 27, said a State Police spokesman.

At about 10:15 a.m., State Police stopped a BMW that was speeding on Route 78 in the area of milepost 6.6, said Sgt. Adam Grossman.

State Police approached the vehicle and could smell marijuana, Grossman said. Marijuana was found in the vehicle and the occupants were arrested and taken to the Perryville station, where they were charged with possession of marijuana.

James DeMatto, 30, of Freehold; William Mcguinn, 29, of Matawan; Gregory Cannon, 29, of Aberdeen; and Justin Deleo, 31, of Secaucus were all charged.

The Democratic Slate

Ah, it’s that time of year again when Aberdeen Township gets to renew its fealty to the democratic party.

Harvey Brenner – Nice guy who’s reputed to have already accepted a job offer in upstate New York and has no intention of serving on the town council.

Gregory Cannon – Remembered for brow-beating a constituent whose home was likely flooded by a township project but refused to accept the town’s meager settlement offer.

Concetta Kelly – She operates a state funded school charity and regularly pockets a quarter of the proceeds. To date, she’s paid herself over $300,000 for her charity work.

Robert Swindle – He’s the guy who sat quietly as his attorney threatened to imprison locals demanding the right to speak at a township meeting on COAH housing.

These are the people Aberdeen will elect tomorrow. How exciting!!!

Guilty by Association

“I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me.” – Ronald Reagan

I remember when Fred Tagliarini left the Republican Party to run for Mayor of Aberdeen. At the time, he explained party affiliation at the local level was irrelevant; I presume Mayor Tagliarini still tilts right at the state and national level.

If party affiliation was ever irrelevant at the local level, that is no longer true. The Democratic Party has become hell bent on transforming America at any cost. Any person running on the Democratic ticket is promoting a party that believes:

1)      A democratic Israel is more dangerous to world peace than a nuclear and terror-sponsoring Iran
2)      Illegal aliens are more law abiding than the average American AND are less likely to report crime
3)      Hillary Clinton did not violate any laws or policies when storing and then destroying confidential government email on a private server, did not user her office for personal gain, and does not user her “charity” as a tax-free slush fund
4)       “Progressive” policies trump religious liberty
5)       “Progressive” policies trump constitutional safeguards
6)      Al Sharpton is a statesman, having been invited to the White House dozens of times and given a talk show on MSNBC (whose parent company booted Donald Trump)
7)      Teacher union interests take precedence over children’s interests
8)      Checking criminal histories of job applicants is racist and illegal but Asian quotas at top universities are appropriate to promote diversity
9)      Man-made global warming is beyond scientific debate despite rampant manipulation of data and the failure of every climate model predicting future warming
10)   More government, more regulations, and more taxes are more often the answer than not
11)   The government will never go bankrupt because we can always print more money


I am confident Mayor Tagliarini does not believe in any of the above. Sadly, I can’t say the same of his colleagues running for town council. This is the political party they’ve chosen and support. Will Aberdeen do the same?

Bully Pulpit

At an open town meeting on December 16, 2014, the town council told Mr. Rizkalla
  1. The township’s million dollar water project did not cause flooding in his house
  2.  Had two experts visit his house who “cannot tell us anything the Township did is causing water in your basement”
  3. Will not release the reports of those “two experts”
  4. Offered Mr. Rizkalla $19,000 to go away
  5. That he’s welcome to get a lawyer and sue
Does that sound like the town is being honest?

Here’s another piece to consider.
