What's being said

  • Terrance Power

    Here‘s a radical idea for America (even New Jersey)....how about electing Judges? That way they‘re accountable to the people that they Judge. That‘s the way it goes in many, many states.

    Given the stranglehold on the New Jersey Legislature by the New Jersey Bar, making Judges accountable to the public instead of elected officials makes perfect sense. Perhaps then we‘ll start seeing some real reform in Family Court and other areas. Perhaps.

  • Christie is not a good public official, his tenure as Governor fractures NJ on every, issue, he‘s arrogant, mean, and does not possess the intellectual capacity to be Governor, just listen to the way he talks, he speaks first before he knows what he is saying, its a parlour trick, the gift of gab with no substance, his rants are meaningless. His selfishness and ego will d more harm to NJ than any other governor has.
    Teachers, pensioners, the poor, blacks, women Latino‘s and seniors will be threatened by him, because he does not care about them, his ego is focused on the white house, in where he will be worst than Bush, he‘s not even a politician, he is a fake, hiding out as Governor
