Convicted murderers, rapists, and the mentally challenged are allowed to get married in our state but not people of the same sex.

The United States is falling behind other countries in granting civil rights to it's citizens. I don't wish to move to Mexico City but applaud them for passing progessive laws.

Mexico City made gay marriage as well as adoption by gay people legal...not legal in NY/ NJ though. Perhaps Mexico should build a wall to keep close minded people out.

Imagine there is a child...lets say 10, 11, 12...who notices something about themselves...as that child ages all they hear are derogitory words to describe their feelings...you know those words we have all used them...as that child grows into adulthood he/she is told there kind are responsible for a horrible disease that is causing millions of deaths worldwide, turn on the TV or attend a religous service and are told they are sinners, God hates them and their degenerate behavior. Now imagine that child is your son, daughter, brother, sister, best friend...wouldn't you want equal rights for that child?

We can't change the hatters...but lets try to change those who may describe themselves as tolerant but don't believe Gay marriage is a priority...that there are more pressing issues in our state.

It will be very easy to legalize Gay marriage...the assembly and senate pass it and the governor signs it into law. Then those who feel there are more pressing issues can work on those....to me a married man with children basic human rights for all is a priority.

one day soon all people will have the same rights regardless of their sexual orientation.

in the near future we will have to explain how people were discrimanated against because of their sexual orientation.

Seperate but equal
don't kiss don't tell
civil unions

all failed policies.

simple..judge a person by who they are not by color of their skin, their race, their religon..or who they are attracted to!

Our city council did not have a building or

Hopefully Governor-Elect Christie will launch an investigation into our crooked rcouncil .

Re: Chris Daggett Independent for Governor Meet & Greet

You were questioning the civility of my tone.

I was not hostile to DanL. I just questioned his support of Corzine.
Unlike most, DanL has done much to contribute to the betterment of Jersey City. I feel his support of Corzine is a contradiction, however, he has every right to support the candidate of his choice.

I do believe your motives are elsewhere.
I think that sometimes you just want to get a "rise" out of people.
Shelley Skinner has answered your charter school questions on line and in person. If you were really interested in a detailed analysis of how Corzine is cheating the charter schools I'm sure she would provide.

I also support your right to vote for Governor Corzine.
As a lifelong Democrat, I did not come to this decision easily.
As a 9 year old, I campaigned for George McGovern. I can appreciate those who remain faithful to the party but Corzine and The Hudson County Democratic Committee have not been faithful to us.

Re: Chris Daggett Independent for Governor Meet & Greet

MND,

It makes sense for someone to openly support a candidate if they aren't supporting the others.

Until your last post the conversation was remaining civil. Let's keep it that way.

Candidly, I find and as has been further supported and illuminated by DanL, that Corzine's accomplishments, especially in this economic climate to out weigh his failures or short comings.

While I think it's great you and some others support an apparently independent candidate I only encourage to evaluate closely your decision making process while you scrutinize facts, motives and expectations.

Also, I invite you to support the claim that Corzine has not at all supported charter schools. As I have already established I am continuously open to any and edification on this matter.


SamS:

Thank you for signifying my uncivil tone. We can all learn to be better people from you. You are such a pleasant and affable individual.

I am just questioning...
Dan has the right to support the candidate of his choice. As head and founder of a good government group, I question how he can support Corzine's reelection based on his ethically challanged way of negotiating deals, violating laws and endangering human lives by speeding and reckless driving. His realtionship with Carla Katz was a violation of the public trust and was a great disservice to the people of NJ.
Please list Governor Corzine's accomplishments.....
He is doing nothing for the people of Jersey City.

DanL
Feel free to call me directly.

dan I respect you not supporting Daggett but to openly support Corzine?

Yeah Katz is a real Jersey Girl...as president of local 1034 of the CWA she was responsable for negotiating contracts with Governor Corzine....her then boyfriend...she also was able to procure her brother a state job..which he wasn't qualified for, Subsequently she was fired for stealing over 135k from her union.

Corzine is big on ethics reform? What has he done or said about the widespread corruption in Jersey City. NOTHING!
What has he done to help the children of jersey City aside from cut funding and not support Charter Schools.
No pancakes for me!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was impressed when he gave answers on tough questions. One attendent obviously an adovacate of vaccine choice, got an answer that she didn't want. Daggett was not wishy washy in his responses, did not say " we need to study this further". On a one on one basis I find Daggett to be a real person not a politican.

At least 65 people attended not counting the bar crowd. , There is nothing Corzine has done to warrant reelection. He has constanly lied about school funding, cheating Jersey City out of money, and says nothing about the widespread corruption in Jersey City. Do I agree with everything Daggett says or believes in ..no but the man has integrity a quality lacking in Corzine and Christie.

Chris Daggett the decisive winner, Chris Christie the indecisive loser in first debate
By Paul Mulshine/The Star Ledger
October 02, 2009, 5:08AM
The best line of tonight?s debate came when, in a response to a question about just how the heck an independent could win the race for governor, Chris Daggett listened to both his opponents? responses and then quipped: ?It sounds like both of these guys might be voting for me.?


Saed Hindash/The Star-LedgerFrom right, Republican Chris Christie, independent Chris Daggett and Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine prepare to face off in the first gubernatorial debate Thursday night.They won?t be, but a lot of other people will. Daggett was the winner of this debate by a large margin. And that?s not good news for the other challenger named Chris, former federal prosecutor Chris Christie.

If Christie ends up losing this race, the defeat may be traced to an exchange that occurred as the candidates answered questions from residents that had been recorded earlier by New Jersey Network reporters. A man asked all three to give specific answers about what they would do to address the $8 billion deficit that awaits the next governor.

First up was Christie. Tough break. Till that point Christie had been pummeled by both Daggett and Gov. Jon Corzine over his refusal to say what he would do about the biggest issue in the race, property taxes. Now he faced another tough question.

He ducked this one as well. First he said he would cut $185 million for people who had received retiree health benefits to which they weren?t entitled. Then he talked about the $250 million in overtime state employees collected. Then he mentioned past spending. And then he mentioned the recently terminated ?food in space? program. This was a Rutgers program to teach kids to grow food on spaceships. Sure it was nuts. But it was budgeted at a mere $130,000 a year.

And that was it. Christie was proposing to eliminate an $8 billion deficit by making cuts of a few hundred million.

Daggett proceeded to point out that Christie was again dodging the issue. He pointed out that Christie?s proposed cuts were insignificant and went on to note that you could fire every state employee twice over and barely close that $8 billion gap.

NJN?s Jim Hooker also seemed aghast, especially after Christie again dodged the question in his rebuttal to Daggett. Hooker broke from the format to ask a follow-up to Christie: ?Mr. Daggett and others have said reducing overtime and those types of endeavors are ?small-bore? and won?t get to a structural deficit of eight or ten billion dollars. What do you say to that??

?First of all I say they?re wrong,? Christie replied.

He then proceeded to prove them right once by again evading the question.

This was an embarrassment. But was it any more embarrassing than his response to a previous man-in-the-street question? Asked for the Nth time what he was going to do about property taxes, Christie recited what amounts to his sole proposal to this point: voluntary municipal consolidation.

Meanwhile Corzine was coming at him from the other side, pointing out as often as Daggett did that Christie had offered not the slightest hint of how he intended to handle property taxes or any other aspect of the budget.

Not that Corzine offered much in the way of a plan. He just recited by rote the numbers that make up his stock speech about how he handled the economy in a recession.

It wasn?t very convincing, but he doesn?t need to be very convincing if enough voters defect to Daggett. A good showing for the third-party candidate could permit Corzine to win back his seat simply by getting out the 40 percent or so of voters who make up the Democratic base.

Christie?s strategy for avoiding that consisted of accusing Daggett of planning to raise taxes. Daggett did indeed say he intended to do so. When asked how he intended to replenish the Transportation Trust Fund, which goes broke next year, Daggett said it looked like the only possible means would be raising the gas tax, which he said is the lowest in the country.

Christie promptly attacked Daggett for proposing the tax hike but offered no plan of his own for refilling the fund. Daggett replied, ?It?s easy to criticize when you have no plan of your own. I would like the tooth fairy to come as well but the tooth fairy is not going to come.?

No, the tooth fairy won?t be coming, at least not for Chris Christie if he keeps this up. The man who keeps yammering on about the need to make ?tough choices? spent the evening attacking every tough choice that Daggett proposed, while dodging every question that came his way.

He got away with this in the Republican primary and he might have gotten away with it in the general election if Daggett had not been in the running.

But Daggett is. And Christie better get real serious real fast if he wants to win this thing.

I think you will find Daggett more liberal than many democrats on social issues....he's pro choice, pro Gay marriage plus he's endorsed by the Sierra Club. Back before the republican party was hijacked by right wing zealots the term Liberal Republican was not an oxy-moron. I'm finding it hard to be a democrat in a state that has recently produced Senator Torricelli, County Chairman Bobby J, Governor McGreevy and the dozens who were indicted in our city by the feds. We are a country for approx 300 million and a state of 8 million people must we only have two political parties? For more on Chris Daggett

Star Ledger DAGGETT IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE SPEAKING TO THE ISSUES"
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


September 23rd, 2009 | Category: In The Press | Share Your Independence
The Star Ledger, like most of New Jersey, is no longer interested in hearing the personal travails of the major party candidates who continue to push stories about driving records and personal finances. In the September 23rd edition they highlight Daggett as the only candidate speaking to the issues and putting for the specific proposals. Reporting on Daggett?.

??he speaks the truth.?

Some facts: New Jersey faces an $8 billion budget gap next year. And that?s much more than the state government spends on all its employees, all their benefits, and all the buildings, heating, and lighting combined.

The real money in the state budget ? nearly 80 percent of it ? is handed over to towns, schools, hospitals, and homeowners who demand rebates.

So it?s obvious, Daggett says, that we can?t solve this problem unless we take aim at local spending ? on teachers, firefighters, and police officers, all protected by union contracts that Daggett says we simply cannot afford.

?I?d take on the idea of declaring a fiscal emergency,? he says. ?Whatever powers I?ve got, I will stretch to whatever limit I can.?

Beyond that, he gets a bit vague, saying he wants to reveal his plan in one piece, probably next week.

?..But look for a plan with some teeth. Because Daggett has been breaking barriers that stop more cautious pols.?

N.J. governor's race offers grim choice for residents
By Tom Moran
September 15, 2009, 8:00PM
For most voters, the New Jersey campaign for governor seems to present a grim choice.

We have Chris Christie, presented as an obese version of George Bush, challenging Jon Corzine, the clumsy incumbent who has supposedly spent the last four years wrecking the economy while his fellow Democrats looted every treasury in the land.

Star-Ledger file photosChris Christie and Gov. Jon Corzine will face off in the gubernatorial election on Nov. 3.
It's almost enough to make you vote for Chris Daggett, the independent candidate whose appeal is matched only by the hopelessness of his cause.

Ah, to be back. After my 18-month sojourn away from New Jersey politics, it seems that the game has changed little. The problems fester. And the boys bicker.

The irony is this: If Christie and Corzine would stop treating us like idiots, if they would use their TV time to tell us what they might do about big problems -- like property taxes -- we could be watching a classic campaign.

Because the choice here is stark -- it's between an unabashed liberal and a surprisingly hardcore conservative. The gap between these two on matters of substance is a Grand Canyon.

Corzine this week visited a Newark child-care center to trumpet his success in bringing health insurance to more low-income children. His signature achievement, he said, is to protect children. That includes health care, expansion of preschools, and reform of the child protection services, all areas where New Jersey has made undeniable progress in the face of shrinking budgets.

In Newark, he sat with low-income mothers, patted sleeping toddlers on the head, and revealed that his own son needed life-saving heart surgery at the age of 7. The stiffness and awkwardness that handicap him as a politician was somehow lifted.

Full Star-Ledger coverage of the New Jersey Governor's Race
"This is why I got into public life," he said afterward. "That little girl who sat next to me is going to need a kidney transplant. In another state, another place, she wouldn't have access to it. That's why I mentioned my son. He wouldn't have survived if he had not had open heart surgery. This should not be about who is wealthy, and who has access."

Christie, a day earlier, was at Veteran's Park in Hamilton Township, shaking hands as he walked among vendors hawking home-made pies and crafts.

As U.S. Attorney, he was a hero, the most effective corruption buster in a generation, and people thanked him for it, over and over.

But this will be tough. Christie is a conservative, and not just on guns and abortion. He would cut the income and business taxes. He would allow health insurers to escape mandates like those guaranteeing women a 48-hour hospital stay after giving birth. He would roll back preschool programs, even for some low-income children.

"We have a thriving private industry that does that," he says. "And candidly, we can't afford it."

He would return federal stimulus money earmarked to extend unemployment benefits, a position embraced by Sarah Palin and rejected by most other governors, even Republicans.

He supports the Bush tax cuts, and has said he'll do something similar in New Jersey.

"I'm certainly in concert with that," he said. "And I don't back away from fact that I was part of his administration."

With all this meaty contrast, why has this campaign focused on driving records, personal loans, and other pettiness?

Here's the sad answer: Both campaign have logical reasons to keep this campaign as superficial as possible, as party leaders on both sides admit in private.

Corzine's problem is that voters know him well by now, and most are unimpressed. That's not likely to change in seven weeks. So his best hope is to say yes when his consultants promise to turn Christie into a monster.

Christie's behavior is rational, too. He's crushing Corzine in most polls. So why run wonky TV ads on property taxes? Why tell us which programs he'd cut to make ends meet?

Yes, larger forces are at work here as well. Corzine complains that when he holds events on health care or jobs, the media doesn't pay attention.

"It's frustrating," he said. "I've had event after event after event. It's not because we're not trying."

Fair point, sort of. News staffs are thin these days. And the press is drawn to scandal like sharks to fresh blood. But follow Corzine's money, and the trail leads to attack ads, many of them cheap shots.

So here's a modest proposal: Let's stipulate that both men are flawed children of God, and move on to the people's business.

Let's agree, for example, that it was dumb for Christie to loan money to his assistant, Michele Brown, and fail to report it or pay taxes on it, and even dumber for Corzine to give millions to Carla Katz, the union leader. Let's agree no voter should get into a car with either one of them. And let's call off the dogs, who are sniffing even today for more mud.

Will this really happen? Probably not. Corzine said his new ads will focus more on issues, but he adds this cryptic out: "We'll have to see what unfolds in a pragmatic context."

Maybe we're doomed to see of flood of TV spots with horrifying camera angles and ominous background music. Maybe we'll never hear a plan on property taxes.

But we have seven weeks left. And even in New Jersey, we can dream.
