State DEP and Fed Army Engineers demand 16 foot dunes along Wildwood? Boardwalk.?? Locals know that wide beaches with wooden sea-walls are enough to fully protect beachfront towns like Margate from ocean flooding. ? ?Wildwood beach far wider than Margate’s–it now reaches the ends of most ocean piers! ? ?Building artificial 16 foot dunes along that Boardwalk is ridiculous.??? But both Federal and? State officials under Christie won?t even agree to lower their proposed dunes to 12 feet! ?Details atwww.libertyandprosperity.org.

This will be 50th year NJ and Delaware Bridge Authority ran money-losing ferries 17 miles between Cape May, ?NJ and Lewes, Delaware. ?Meanwhile, Virginia built two 17.5 mile bridge-tunnels between Delmarva Peninsula and Virginia Beach that paid for themselves. ? In 1964, the Delaware-NJ Bridge Authority bought ferry boats from Virginia when 17 mile Bay Bridge Tunnel between Virginia Beach and Delmarva Penninsula opened.? NJ and Delaware were supposed to also run those ferries temporarily until we built our own 17 mile Delaware Bay Bridge Tunnel.?? But for 50 years, NJ and Delaware squandered the money, ?built nothing (not even upgrading Route 40 to four lanes or finishing 55), and kept running the money-losing ferries.? Extra high tolls on Delaware Memorial Bridge pay for the losses. ? ?Virginia’s second 17 mile Bay Bridge Tunnel built in 1997 for $197 million, one third the cost of $600 million bridge for 2.5 miles between Ocean City and Somers Point, NJ.

New Jersey appeals to U.S. Supreme Court to throw out federal law banning sports betting in all but Nevada and 3 other states. ?Why no mention of Article I, Section 8–or Tenth Amendment? ??NJ claims law is unconstitutional, but newspapers never report ?exactly what parts of U.S. Constitution are violated.??? Please take the time to write a letter to your local paper and give this simple explanation.? Article I, Section 8 of U.S. Constitution gives federal government limited power to do specific things.?? That list of ?enumerated powers? does NOT include banning or regulating any sports or gambling.? The only thing close is the power to ?regulate commerce among the several states?. ???But how does someone do commerce with someone in another state by placing a bet with an Atlantic City casino while sitting inside that casino? ?The 10thAmendment of U.S. Constitution says ?The powers not delegated to the U.S. by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people?.??? NJ argues that since Constitution does not give federal government power to control sports or betting, and since interstate commerce not involved, ?only states have that power.??? Why won?t mainstream media mention the word ?Tenth Amendment??? Tenth Amendment also never mentioned when reporting that Federal marijuana laws not enforced in Colorado, where state law makes it legal. ?Or in reports of lawsuits against federal government forcing people to buy ObamaCare health insurance.

The newspapers also did not mention Article I, Section 9 of U.S. Constitution which states:? ?No preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one state over those of another?. ?(The federal law permits sports betting in Nevada and three other states, but not in any other state). ? ?If more people knew this, would they question other laws that give special treatment to certain areas as political favors?

Why did Port Authority of New York and New Jersey take over Atlantic City airport last July??? Press of Atlantic City reported that ACY plans to collect $30 million over the next ten years with a $4.50 fee on every passenger?the maximum allowed for Congress.?? The Press also reported that while the Port Authority will spend billions on capital improvements for other airports it controls, it will spending nothing on ACY.

Howell (Monmouth County) made settlement paying $325,000 each ($1.3 million total) to four township employees who claimed they were harassed and insulted?by Municipal Court Administrator over past 14 years.?? The responsible employee won?t pay a dime.? All money will be paid Howell Township taxpayers who did nothing wrong.?? Local governments rarely take these cases to trial because laws rigged against taxpayers.?? ?Fee-shifting? laws give lawyers for ?victims? of on-the-job harassment thousands of dollars in legal fees even if when they only recover a few hundred dollars for their clients after a trial.?? It is almost impossible to defend against allegations of things that happened 14 years ago.???? And unlike for other injury cases, no medical evidence needed to collect money for ?emotional distress? ?in discrimination cases only.?? Another reason why taxes so high in New Jersey.
