It’s A VERY BIG Number

If I give you $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out $1 billion after 31 years!

Now read on. This is too true to be funny.

The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

1. A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.
2. A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.
3. A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
4. A billion days ago, no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
5. A billion Dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our present government is spending it.

We are charged:
· Stamp Duty
· Tobacco Tax
· Corporate Income Tax
· Income Tax
· Council Tax
· Unemployment Tax
· Fishing License Tax
· Petrol/Diesel Tax
· Inheritance Tax (tax on top of tax)
· Alcohol Tax
· G.S.T.
· Property Tax
· Purchase Property Tax
· Tax on Title Searches
· Tax on Building Inspections
· Tax on supplements
· Taxes on various food items
· Taxes on Dining out
· Tax on all utilities – Phone, hydro, water, waste disposal
· Service charge taxes
· Social Security Tax
· Vehicle License / Registration Tax
· Vehicle Sales Tax
· Workers Compensation Tax
· And now Carbon Tax

AND I’m sure you can think of more……

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, and our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt.

We had the largest middle class in the world. A criminal’s life was uncomfortable. What on earth happened?
I hope this goes around CANADA, the USA and beyond 1 billion times!

To Sen. Steve Oroho: About That 2.3 Million for Roads…

June 5, 2017

Senator Steve Oroho

24th Legislative District Office
1 Wilson Drive
Suite 2B
Sparta, NJ 07871

 

Senator Steve Oroho,

 

As I read the article explaining the 2.3 million granted NJ from NJODT for road repairs, I couldn’t get excited or even think past the fact that NJ pays one million dollars per mile – more than any other state in the country! Why is that Mr. Oroho?  Is it because of the cost there is for doing business with the unions and bureaucrats you sold out to?  Hmmmmmm….

Personally my newly added expenses to the TTF are $750 per year!  How about we dedicate that to paving my road. I definitely would have spent my portion of money more efficiently.

With 24 municipalities in Sussex County I feel strongly that you can do much better to serve us. Let’s get on board to serve the community and the people instead of the bureaucrats or yourself. How can we repeal your transportation bill that cost each of us 23 cents per gallon at the pump? This issue is not going away and I predict you will lose your November election.

 

 

Very Truly Yours,

xxxx

Letter to Sen. Steve Oroho on New Gas Tax

June 2, 2017

Senator Steve Oroho

24th Legislative District Office
1 Wilson Drive
Suite 2B
Sparta, NJ 07871

Senator Steve Oroho,

You fail to mention your love of tax increases. The monies you claim we are benefitting from the gas tax would have been available without the tax. We, the public, have more sense than you’re giving us credit! Also how many towns in Sussex County are affected, minus the ones that DID get something? Funny how that’s not mentioned either.  I can see your voting record online. It’s not hidden sir. Your actions speak much louder than your words! So once again you say you’re promoting the truth but you’re not telling the truth!!  This continues to be so insulting to our intelligence!

I also find it deplorable that you continue to mention the POTUS and his plan for infrastructure. I thought the gas tax increase was for infrastructure?  Perhaps the state should be advised that you are already collecting for it.

Very Truly Yours,

xxxx

NJ Farm Store Threatened by Town Government

Save The Farm

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Demarest Farms and our employees care deeply about the Hillsdale community. I am a longtime resident and most of our employees are Hillsdale residents too. The farm has called Hillsdale home since 1886 but sadly, Demarest Farms’ future is being threatened.
Last year, at the height of our busy season, the Borough of Hillsdale put in place some drastic parking restriction deliberately targeting our customers and our business. This includes closing all public streets around the farm to prevent anyone from parking nearby when our lots become full. We understand the town’s concerns, but despite repeated attempts to find a collaborative compromise, Hillsdale has refused to work with us. The mayor of Hillsdale is a participant of a farm protest group, exerting undue influence over the other elected officials. This protest group, including the mayor, wants to stop visitors from coming to the farm by permanently prohibiting parking on side streets during the ‘pick your own’ season.


Our busy days are limited to weekends and holidays in September and October. We have attempted to address any concerns, by offering to lease parking spots from the Board of Education at the nearby Smith School. This would provide tax relief and/or additional funds for educational programs, and we even offered to assist with snow plowing around the school during the winter months. We also covered the cost of the police needed to provide traffic control and ensure all local parking rules are abided by. Unfortunately, these solutions, along with many others, have been rejected by Hillsdale’s elected officials, demonstrating their lack of regard for the rights of the farm. Rather than work cooperatively, these officials would rather force the farm to seek a resolution of the matter through litigation.


Imagine if the law was changed to prohibit parking near a church or temple because a few people did not like parishioners parking on their street. We believe passing laws that target one specific business is equally unlawful. Suppose the mayor decided he did not like the owner of a small business or he wanted to eliminate competition for a family member or friend. Should he be allowed to put them out of business by changing parking laws near their facility and alienating their customers?


On Thursday June 8, 2017 at 7:30 in Borough Hall, the Mayor and Council will vote to make these extreme and prejudiced parking restrictions permanent. We need your help to ensure all voices are heard on this matter. It is important that elected officials recognize that the views of a small group of people do not reflect the views of the entire community.
I hope to see you at the council meeting and thank you for your support.


Sincerely,
Demarest Farms and Family

What really died at Auschwitz?

You know, General Dwight Eisenhower demanded that the horrors they found is these concentration camp be thoroughly documented with written accounts and photos. He believed, and he was 100% correct, that there w/be those in the future who claimed it never happened. Now it’s happening and it’s feared that PC Progressive governments might actually help the “deniers” by removing the records from history curriculum.

What really died at Auschwitz?
(From a Spanish writer’s viewpoint.)

What really died at Auschwitz ? Here’s an interesting viewpoint. The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Velar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper. It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe – and possiblyto the rest of the world.

======================

I walked down the streets in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz . . . We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of these people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs. What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.

It is now approximately seventy years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved and beaten, experimented on and humiliated. Now, more than ever, with Iran,
among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people. Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States? If our Judeo-Christian heritage is offensive to Muslims, they should pack up and move to Iran, Iraq or some other Muslim country.

Please do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along. We must wake up America before it’s too late.

Letter to Paul Ryan, Congress & President RE: Extended Vacations

Name

Address

April 20, 2017

Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House

1233 Longworth HOB
Washington, D.C. 20515

 

Honorable Paul Ryan:

It was with utter shock and disgust that I discovered you and your colleagues of both parties are taking an extended vacation and only working 4 days during the month of April!!!  You just returned from a vacation and now you want to have the rest of America pay you for your lack of responsibility to your constituents? That’s actually insulting that you think we don’t see your lack of concern, responsibility and laziness.

This is a new president and supposedly a new congress & senate who have done little to meet the mandate of the American people since last November. There are still cabinet appointees and members not yet voted on & you go on vacation? You know exactly what you’re doing and that makes this even more reprehensible!

What you need to do is to stay in Washington until your work is complete and stay there until you have a full plate of legislation to pass or flunk. Your work ethics are so unsatisfactory that I would flunk all of you!

Shame on you and shame on the taxpayers for not having spoken up sooner. We are now and expect you all to stand up like responsible caring men and women of THE United States of America and be proud to call yourselves Congressmen by actually completing your job like the rest of America has to do or we’ll all go down. Set an example for the American people.  Set an example for our young people who have become more politically involved than the past generation.  They’re watching!  Your own children and grandchildren are watching YOU! What kind of legacy are you leaving all of us?

You are earning $223,500 a year or $4,298 a week!  I suggest that if you take 10 weeks off a year then you need to reduce your income by $42,980 per year.

Do NOT write back telling me that you needed to have a Town Hall with us. I know better! So do you!

 

Disgusted and Angry beyond words,

xxxx

Saudi Tent City Can Host Up to Three Million People

http://www.inquisitr.com/3939994/saudi-arabia-tent-city-refugees-war-torn-nations/

Saudi Arabia’s tent city, Mina, with its well-arranged rows of white tents spread over 20 square kilometers, represents a unique and remarkable blend of traditional and modern housing techniques in the arid country. Since 2015, Riyadh has come under criticisms for failing to do enough to deal with the humanitarian crisis in nearby Syria and Yemen. Western commentators have particularly called for displaced refugees to be housed in Saudi Arabia’s tent city.

There are about 100,000 tents in Mina, which can reportedly host up to three million people. The air conditioned tents are reportedly fire-proof and come with bathroom and kitchen facilities.

Critics have argued that Saudi Arabia’s tent city, which is about 2,150 miles from Syria, should be opened up to refugees to potentially cut down on the number of people making the perilous journey across the Mediterranean to Europe. This argument is made on the backdrop of talks that Saudi Arabia needs to do more to help refugees from nearby warring countries.

Saudi Arabia’s tent city plays a key role in the annual Hajj pilgrimage, which is described as the largest annual gathering of people in the world.

We are outraged, you’re just not listening!!! We don’t want a terrorist political ideology in our country! You want it? Go to Saudi Arabia! https://twitter.com/amjoyshow/status/825738326992896000 

@muzikgirl11 Here’s the outrage! Tent city in Saudi Arabia is a ghost town @amjoyshow Report on this lady, DO YOUR JOB!! pic.twitter.com/lSiSZ1EcH8

The tent city of Mina, which is just five kilometers from Mecca, provides temporary accommodation to millions of people who travel to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj yearly. Accommodation in these tents reportedly costs between $500 and $3,500, according to Al Jazeera. The tent city is believed to have been partly inspired by safety concerns following a fire outbreak in pilgrim camps in Mina that claimed the lives of hundreds of people.

Saudi Arabia’s tent city was created about a decade ago to provide a central housing station for pilgrims. Buildings in Mina were completely demolished to make way for the tent city. For hundreds of years before it was created, pilgrims stayed with residents of Mina and camped within the city. The tent city is reportedly empty for about 50 weeks every year.

While Saudi authorities could easily open up the tents to refugees, some local pundits have argued that this is not what refugees want, and the kingdom has apparently opted not to treat them as refugees.

Although the Saudi government claims to be hosting millions of displaced refugees from Syria and Yemen, the nation’s foreign ministry has stated that the kingdom is not interested in publicizing its efforts to help refugees.

According to Arabic international newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, thousands of Syrians who have fled to Saudi Arabia have been granted a residential permit as well as free healthcare, education, and employment opportunities. The ministry added that the Saudi government has invested over $700 million to deal with the humanitarian fallout of the wars in Syria and Yemen.
