Weekly Update – October 29, 2009
THIS SATURDAY BREAKFAST DISCUSSION FROM 9:30AM to 10:30 AM, ATHENA DINER, NEW ROAD (BETWEEN MILL & TILTON), NORTHFIELD, NJ:
1. TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION–OCTOBER 31, 2009:
a. How to legally own and use a gun in New Jersey. If you were attacked or threatened in your home, and the police needed an hour to get there, would you rather have a cell phone or a gun? It takes about 8 months to legally own a gun in New Jersey. Where can you learn to use a gun legally and safely? How do you apply for the permits? Mike Silverstein will go through the basics this Saturday.
b. Is AtlantiCare charging patients a hidden tax at its new Cancer Center in Egg Harbor Township, so that people who install solar panels get an extra $600 for every $100 of electricity they produce? Read Seth Grossman?s latest article in the Current-Gazette Newspapers at http://www.libertyandprosperity.org/…article&id=502. The Current-Gazette Newspapers are also posted on-line at: www.shorenewstoday.com
c. KNOW about the $400 million more in dept for the Open Space/Green Acres/Blue Acres/Historic Preservation fraud. Then vote NO on Tuesday.
ii. To learn how $3 million of ?Green Acres? and ?Open Space? money paid top dollar for a run down school and golf club restaurant with liquor license in Brigantine, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwU9Ol86kjM and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ba45Ajsxk3w.
iii. Remember that most Green Acres/Open Space money goes to Wall Street lawyer, bond dealers, politicians, and insider unions and contractors. And the little money that does go to real green open space is NOT preserved forever?it is should owned by the government until some politician makes a deal to let it be used for something else.
iv. PLEASE PICK UP AND DISPLAY A SIGN!!! I HAVE 200 ?VOTE NO ON BALLOT QUESTION #1 SIGNS? LEANING AGAINST THE BACK OF MY BUILDING AT 453 SHORE ROAD, SOMERS POINT. PLEASE PICK UP AND DISPLAY AS MANY OF THOSE SIGNS AS YOU CAN IN GOOD LOCATIONS. IF YOU CANNOT COME TO SOMERS POINT, PLEASE CONTACT ME AND THEY WILL BE DELIVERED. THE NEXT FEW DAYS ARE CRITICAL!!!
v. The best way to deal with NJ Waste and Corruption is to shut off the supply of easy, borrowed money.
d. CAN YOU IDENTIFY ANY OF THE MIDDLE TOWNSHIP POLICE OFFICERS WHO ILLEGALLY DISPERSED OUR MEMBERS, AND ARRESTED SETH GROSSMAN AND STEVE LONEGAN WHEN THEY TRIED TO DISPLAY SIGNS AND HAND OUT LITERATURE AT GOVERNOR CORZINE?S ?TOWN HALL MEETING? IN CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE ON JANUARY 19, 2008? THE CASE AGAINST JON CORZINE HAS REACHED A CRITICAL STAGE, AND THIS INFORMATION IS IMPORTANT. PLEASE VIEW ALL FOUR VIDEOS AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU KNOW THE NAME OF ANY POLICE OR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WHO TOOK PART IN THIS ILLEGAL ACTIVITY. PLEASE FORD THE E-MAIL TO ANYONE YOU KNOW IN CAPE MAY COUNTY AND ASK IF THEY HAVE ANY INFO. THANKS.
2. Did you see any of the slick and expensive campaign literature sent by the NJEA Teacher?s Union to its members? In the past, NJEA said the candidates it endorsed promised better schools. Now, it says ?Jon Corzine has been there for us? and ?Chris Christie is not on our side.?. The NJEA literature says Corzine promises more money, bigger salaries, better pensions, and lifetime free medical care for union members, and higher taxes for everyone else! Now, for the first time, NJEA campaign literature warns its members not to show this literature to anyone else. Every campaign piece contains these words: ?This message is intended soely for NJEA members and their families?!
3. Liberty and Prosperity Lawnsigns and Billboards. Help us agree on a final design this Saturday? Will you display our signs and billboards on your property?
4. Eminent Domain of Pearl Restaurant in Somers Point: The owners of the Pearl Restaurant have come to us for help. Their restaurant has been taken for the construction of the new bridge to Ocean City. They say the taking is unnecessary, and that they are not being offered a fair price. Liberty and Prosperity is only against the use of eminent domain for PRIVATE gain. The Constitution permits eminent domain for genuine public use. Should we be involved in this issue? The owners of the Pearl Restaurant have invited us to learn about their situation at their restaurant Monday, November 2 from 3PM to 6PM. You are welcome to attend.
5. Liberty at the Movies: This week?s showing of ?The Cartel? was a big success. About 50 people attended, and $325 was donated to pay for future films and publicity. If you missed the movie and want to see it, please contact me, go to
7. The Infrastructure Project: When the election is over, we will have two priorities. First, we need to know the names of the people who are running our state, county, and local governments and how to reach them by e-mail and telephone. Second, we need to reach high school and college students. But if school officials do not cooperate, we need to talk to the folks we identified in the First Priority. This project will only work if YOU participate. Do you know the name, party affiliation, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses of the following people in your town? Mayor, Town or Township Council or Committee, School Board, Republican/Democrat Club leaders and party county committee? If so, please e-mail it to me. We will then prepare a master list for South Jersey and make that list available to any defender of liberty who wants to run for public office. I know that you already have that information for one or two people in your town, and that you can get the information for some others with just a few phone calls.
8. Jesse Kurtz, our webmaster, is running for mayor of Atlantic City. It seems none of the casino, business, or political leaders understand why Atlantic City is still such a mess 31 years after the casinos brought billions of dollars to Atlantic City. Only Jesse Kurtz is telling everyone that Liberty, not special gifts and favors from politicians is what Atlantic City needs to have prosperity again. Somehow during the “Golden Century” of Atlantic City (1854 to 1954), Atlantic City had few laws, few taxes, no big casinos, no redevelopment agencies and “experts”– but anyone willing to work had unique opportunities to succeed and enjoyed a comfortable lifestyle that the rest of the country envied.
8. We need your help. We need your money and your time. We need you to be a member and help decide what projects we should work on. MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS: Voting Members: $60 dues, Attend 3 business meetings per year, Work on one board approved project per year. Non-Voting Members: $30 per year, not attendance or volunteer requirements.
