I have disagreed very largely with the lack of charity involved in many of your posts. However IRead Moream in complete agreement over the completely callous and cynical way young people have been exploited by the financialization of the education industry. It is utterly shameful and borderline criminal that graduates with poor job prospects are being anchored with debt that by all appearances will take several decades to pay off. Even worse is the inability to discharge this debt through bankruptcy filing. I agree totally that this should be dealt with; we should be protecting young people not well fed middle aged bankers.

Hey Joe, Glad we can agree on something. What you wrote is so true and well said. Government isRead MoreLo cal Government. If we want to make a difference in how we are represented by our Government, we must get out and vote in Congressional elections and know the values and voting record of our Congressman. Do they represent our values and have they voted accordingly? We also have the right to call our Congressman and let them know when we are not happy and it is their job to meet and listen to their constituents, us. We believe that Smith stopped listening some time ago. He has done some good stuff for Vets but his fanatical obsession with overturning a women's right to choose has gotten in the way of his governing. He is up for re- election in November and perhaps District 4 will feel it's time for some change.

@CWK above you're complaining about a "voting majority" so it doesn't seem to matter if 3 Read Morepeople left the Board and 3 new one's joined, does it? Why don't you get on the BOE so things can be done the right way.

Voting out council members doesn't work anyway. When a good candidate is elected, one who actuallyRead Morec ares about reducing spending and waste, the rest of them shoot down every proposal he or she makes, alway trying to make them look bad in the process, aided by the local media I may add. Voicing your opinions at the borough council meetings doesn't help either. Those who do are treated in a condescending manner, heads turned, talking over you, ignoring your concerns. After awhile, you realize it's pointless.

Another good job of those savy voters in new jersey electing another braindead ahole into office.

Robert April 01, 2014 at 04:13 PM
probably been an ahole a lot longer than that....like I said nj voters are so sharp....what can you Read Moreexpect from new jersey?

Amen, my friend. I've lived in the area my entire life. I'm 57 and grew up in Baywood. Bought aRead Morehome there after marriage and moved to Sea Meadows (around the corner. _ Yes, flood insurance ontop of ever increasing taxes. It's hard for a family with even moderate to good income to hold on much longer. I hope this new government will realize that increasing our ratables will only make this matter worse. For those of you who haven't disputed your assessed value, do so now! you have until tomorrow to get it done and post marked. It's the only way to keep the lid on your situation, in an honest and fair manner. Good luck to all.

STAND OUTSIDE WITH A PROTEST SIGN to get on TV and in the papers! ==> "Bridge overRead Moretroubl ed water: ==> Christie botched the recovery!"

Stop the witch hunt for political reasons. Look at the past few governors. He is a breath ofRead Morefresh air. He did more to help people than many others. Our town mayor and councilmen worked hard with the state to get it done right. They were Democrats and Republicans. When someone tries to do a good job help them. Negativity is offensive.
