By Michael Reagan As we’ve said here before, Donald Trump has to learn to just shut up and let things go. The failure to do that is the worst Achilles heel of a president who seems to have half a dozen Achilles heels. Because he can’t think on his feet, because he doesn’t know how to… Read the rest of this entry »

Former Goldman Sachs banker Phil Murphy, the Democrat nominee for NJ Governor, promised to raise taxes on New Jersey citizens by $1.3 billion dollars if elected, according to an Observerreport.
Murphy’s law would reinstate the the McGreevey/Corzine era “millionaires tax” to raise $600 million. $300 million would come from taxing legalized marijuana.

August 12, 1958 was a big day in my mother’s life. I don’t even remember it
I’ve intentionally stayed out the the raging debate over the terrible events in Virginia last weekend and the adequacy, or lack thereof, of President Trump’s response to them.

It won’t make a positive difference how we relate to people who don’t look like us, dress like us or talk like us. On the contrary, the raging narrative in the media seems to be increasing our divisions.
The best result, so far, of the current media narrative is that we are apparently no longer on the verge of nuclear war with the crazy fat kid in North Korea and the Russians are apparently no longer attempting to hijack our republic.
I’m inviting my little corner of the Internet to use the upset caused by recent events to create some love and harmony. I think its contagious.
Monmouth County Republican Chairman Shaun Golden issued a statement this morning congratulating newly elected Assemblyman Ned Thomson on his victory at the special election last evening and thanking all involved for a successful and orderly convention.
