Same Old Aberdeen

It’s been 10 years since I’ve lived in Aberdeen. Not much has changed. Mayor Tagliarini is still wondering how I discovered before he did that he’d be the democratic nominee for Mayor. Municipal budget is up 50% and Aberdeen has the highest property tax rate in Monmouth County for towns with an aggregate property value over $200 million. CME continues to fund the democratic campaigns for a license to pillage.

Still the same cast of characters on the town council except for relative newcomer, Abie Hirsch. 

Vincent Vinci is still lining his pockets at the firehouse after being pushed off the town council. Then again, he needs the money after getting scorched in property taxes on the land gifted to him by the township and county.

Greg Cannon is still plotting to become a power broker.

Still using Norman Kauff’s old law firm to represent the township.

Cambridge Club is finally open. (Yay!)

Affordable housing has arrived.

Crime is down.

Ten whole years. Feels like yesterday.

A Series of Why

I am proud to be American.

I love America. I love my fellow Americans. I cherish American ideals. I thank G-d every day that I live in a country that is free, generous, and compassionate.

We are the nation that promotes and protects freedom, democracy, and prosperity around the world to billions of people.

We are the nation that feeds the world through our food and science.

We are the nation that powers science, healthcare, finance, and industry.

We are the nation of higher education, arts, culture, and entertainment.

We are the land of opportunity and home of the brave.

I am so very proud of our founding fathers and national leaders who risked all and achieved much. They did it for us so that we and our children could enjoy freedom and prosperity as no other people throughout history.

Today, there’s a movement afoot to tear it all down. Tear down our heroes, our monuments, our history, and our beliefs. These demagogues have no plans to build a better future. They simply desire to destroy our present and past.

They rewrite history, corrupt scientific study, and poison our educational system. They seek to divide us by race, wealth, religion, and beliefs, rather than unite us as Americans of a shared and glorious future.

They persuade through propaganda and false promises. Their solutions always lie in granting themselves more power over our lives.

They foment hate and rage.

They shall not triumph.

As President Reagan advised Americans of all generations, “When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat.”

I will be publishing a series of articles to expose the party of hate and asking, “Why?” Our freedoms are not the norm in human history. Our freedoms are not guaranteed. We must remain ever vigilant.
