So, Gov. Christie is a hero for making rulings that either cost the state more, or get overruled by himself?
What is the attraction of a governor who will force local real estate taxes to go up by 20%, so that he can keep his promise to preserve a tax cut for millionaires?

Print NEWARK A general of the Bloods street gang could face up to 10 years in prison after his conviction today on a charge of eluding police, authorities said.
Detectives from the Essex County Prosecutors Office VIPER Unit arrested Jahmal McNeil, 32, in June after he fled from police during an attempted motor vehicle stop, said Lynne Borasio, Essex County assistant prosecutor.
McNeil escaped authorities after a brief chase, but police tracked him to his Irvington home hours later and arrested him, according to Borasio.
Borasio said McNeil was a high-ranking member of the G-Shine set of the Bloods street gang and that she intends to seek the maximum sentence of 10 years.
Two law enforcement officials, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, identified McNeil as a five-star general, who oversees the gangs street soldiers.
There are hundreds of active members of the G-Shine Bloods in Essex County, mostly in Irvington, Newark and East Orange, according to county Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Fennelly, head of the VIPER unit.

"NJ's gov speaks loudly and carries a big stick."
Instead, we get a idiot Democrat Governor Malloy, who:
1) INCREASES the budget
2) RAISES taxes in the state with already the highest per capita tax debt
3) calls for ADDITIONAL unfriendly business regulations
4) wants to add even MORE government employees in the state with already the highest ratio in the nation of government employee to private
I am so damned jealous.
