It May be Hopeless.

I have written for years now about the cesspool of corruption in New Jersey state government, which has made this state a national joke. The rampant corruption has not gone unnoticed by New Jersey’s voters. In fact, a recent Quinnipiac University poll showed that 88 percent of the state’s voters believe government corruption in New Jersey is a “serious problem.” What’s more, a large majority of voters (a 38-24 percent margin) associated corruption with the Democratic Party.

Given the foregoing data, one might logically assume that the New Jersey’s voters who believe that corruption is a serious problem and that it is associated with democrats would be want to vote them out of office this coming November.

The problem is that New Jersey voters are anything but logical.

The poll showed that “54 percent [of those polled] said they are not more likely to vote for a Republican; 48 percent said they’d rather see the Democrats maintain control of the Legislature.”

For some time, New Jersey has been vying with Louisiana for the title of the Most Corrupt State in the Union, and we are getting close. I do believe, however, that we are now tied with Louisiana for having the dumbest goddamned voters in the U.S.


  1. One of the reasons I got out, Jimbo. I lived in Morris County for 32 years and watched the state steal the suburbs blind to pay for a failed educations system in the democratically run cities that continued to fail despite the wormhole into which cash was dumped. I watched the state erode and restrict more and more rights of its citizens while the Democratic party kept screaming that Reagan and then the Bushes were doing the same thing (they weren’t, of course). I watched as the tax and spend (and sometimes just plain spend) Trentontonians passed law after law to restrict, or make it prohibitively expensive to run/expand a business in the state and then wonder where all the jobs were. And the corruption…Oy! When they started kissing up to illegal aliens by constructing day worker centers and advocating a sanctuary status for the entire state…well, that was enough.

    I was lucky enough to sell my home and get the hell out just before the housing market stalled. I took a bit of a hit on the value of my home, but it was worth it to escape the hell hole that was once my home for 56 years. I’ll root and cheer for my alma mater, Rutgers, but I’ll never say much good about NJ ever again.

  3. My husband has noticed that same weird phenom up here in MA… people are “Democrats” period. No matter how bad the government is, they can’t seem to understand they have to throw the wankers out and clean things up once in a while, even if it means voting Republican (although from what I can tell, there is no Republican party here… heh). It’s like the whole concept is beyond anything they can imagine.

  4. Jimbo……

    The Ignorance of the Democratic voting base is not confined to New Jersey or any other state. It is crucial to the continued success of the Democratic party that the core base be ignorant, dependent on goverment handouts & willing to accept the most blatant of corruption or personal criminal activity of the democratic chosen office holders. The democratic power brokers would make allegiance with the devil to gain or maintain power, they have no shame,honor or comprehend decency.

    Strong words I know…but how else do you explain the shenanigans these leechs pull, the history of Ted “Swimmer ” Kennedy, the corruption surrounding & of the Clintons,Pelosi, Reid, Schumer,Feinstein & the rest of the liberal socialists?

    Where else would the antics of Rev`d Jackson & honest Al Sharpton be tolerated?

    The Republicans are not pure either but when one runs afoul of conventional ethical behavior in this party, they are asked or forced to resign, not become an elder statesmen or become the voice of conscience of the party as did Swimmer in the Democratic Party.

    Unfortunately the democratic faithful, are sheeple who have been raised on & still have a craving for liberal democratic BS.

  6. Guy, that reminds me: Look what was found wandering along Route 25A in Upstate New York, “abandoned” and “dehydrated and weakened by starvation,” poor thing.

  7. “The finding marked the 15th alligator recovered by the SPCA in Suffolk County in the past year.”

    Which means that there are fifteen assholes in Suffolk Countyu, assuming that each such asshole only had one gator. If, on the other hand, one asshole had fifteen gators, he/she just ought to be dragged off and shot.

  8. FIFTEEN! Good God almighty! Of course they don’t say how large the other 14 were. They could have been little guys, only 6 inches or so. If they were larger, hey there might be a few wise guys in the market for some good gator leather for a belt or a wallet.

    Even so, it might be a wise to contemplate te need for a very hard winter to remove these undesireables–permanently. Bada bing, bada boom.

  9. Wow, I had no idea my one and only true home state was so messed up… I mean I knew there was crap there but not so much. And voters would rather there be corruption than Republicans in office? So lemme get this straight — corrupt Democrats are better than Republicans? Seriously?!?

  10. It’s not only in the land of Oz, Jersey. We have the same in Va. The dumb ass democrats stand in the street and scream ‘sock it to me’, taxes up the yazoo that is, and the crooked democrat governor does his best. Soon we will have to work a part time job to pay the state tax on the primary job.
