Hey Governor Murphy, There’s a MAGA Hat on Your State Flag

By Thomas DeSeno

Click for larger view

Hello Governor!  I noticed your latest bout of uncontrollable virtue signaling (you should see someone about that).  You have removed the state flag of Mississippi from New Jersey’s display of all 50 49 state flags at Liberty State Park.  You are predictably triggered because Mississippi’s flag bears the Second Confederate Navy Jack in the upper flagstaff canton.

So, you oppose secession of the southern states?  Virtue signal received, Governor.  I suspect we all knew that without rekindling the civil war or vacating amnesty given to southern soldiers.

Middletown Mayor: If Pot Is Legalized, It Should Be Regulated Like Alcohol

Middletown Mayor Tony Perry

Middletown Mayor Tony Perry says that if recreational marijuana is to become legal in New Jersey, that its retail sale of should be regulated like alcohol is regulated…with municipalities selling licenses and conducting background checks on the sellers.

The legislation currently under consideration in Trenton, and reportedly agreed upon by Governor Phil Murphy, Senate President Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin amounts to an unfunded burden upon local governments, Perry said in a letter to Buena Vista Mayor Chuck Chiarello, President of the New Jersey Conference of Mayors, with copies sent to the 13th District legislators; Senator Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywomen Amy Handlin and Serena DiMaso, as well as Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden and Freeholder Director Tom Arnone.

O’Scanlon Responds to Murphy’s Budget

Senator Declan O’Scanlon, (R-Monmouth), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, make the following remarks in response to Governor Phil Murphy’s proposed budget:

Watch O’Scanlon deliver his remarks:

“This budget won’t lift up the middle class. It will leave generations of New Jersey residents with no hope for a prosperous future.

“Even if the Governor’s rosy projections – of both revenue and savings – are accurate, we are still only a fraction of the way out of the hole we’re in.

“We can’t tax our way out of this mess. Without major reforms, it is a very real possibility that young public workers won’t even have a pension by the time they retire.

“I urge Governor Murphy to come to the table and hammer out a compromise with us. There is no other option,” Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) said.

Art G and Tommy G on the radio this afternoon at 4

Art Gallagher is back on the Tommy G Show on Tuesday afternoon, January 29 at 4 PM.

Tommy’s show is always good for laughs and provocative conversation about local, state and national news.  On the agenda this afternoon is discussion about the $15 minimum wage bill that Governor Phil Murphy, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin  promoted at the press conference in Sayreville this morning.

I wouldn’t be surprised if former Governor Chris Christie’s new book which was released today also comes up in conversation.
