Youâ€™re a New Jerseyean ifâ€¦.. The creator of this list (see below) states that you are a â€œNew Jerseyanâ€ if you can recognize or relate to at least ten of the items.
Let me say that I think it is a great list, but I donâ€™t know anyone from here who would respond to the question, â€œWhere are you from?â€ by saying, â€œIâ€™m a New Jerseyan.â€ The proper answer to that question is, â€œIâ€™m from Jersey.â€ Some might say that the proper answer really is, â€œIâ€™m from Jersey, asshole. You got a problem wit dat? You writinâ€™ a frigginâ€™ book or somethinâ€™?â€
In addition, I think people who are really from Jersey should recognize or relate to at least 45 of the 55 items. Hell, you could relate to 10 of them just by hoppinâ€™ on the Parkway for a ride down na Shore.
I scored a 53. So quit bustinâ€™ my chops, and check out da list.
Cuban Coast Guard. I must have been busier this weekend than I had realized. Somehow I missed the story about the four members of the Cuban Coast Guard who sailed a thirty-foot Coast Guard boat into Key West in the middle of the night last Friday. They docked the boat at a hotel marina, came ashore at approximately 4 a.m., and turned themselves in to a local police officer. They were armed with a handgun and two AK-47 assault rifles. The U.S. returned the boat to Cuba, but is detaining the crewmembers for questioning.
This all happened on the day the country escalated the Terror Alert to â€œOrange.â€ It is more than a little unsettling to see that uniformed, armed members of a hostile countryâ€™s military can walk ashore in Key West, the home of a U.S. Coast Guard Station, and stroll down Duval Street. Homeland what?
As for the U.S. promptly returning the Cuban boat, I am sure that if Castro ever got his hands on a U.S. Coast Guard Cutter, he would return it to the U.S. just as quickly.
