New Jersey’s new Governor, Phil Murphy at first appearance reminded me of a thin Ted Kennedy, re pleat with a very toothy smile, big head and ears. In fact his Bible that he was sworn in on was the same one JFK was sworn in as president.
Like Teddy, Murphy is as liberal. He is legalizing pot asap, he is talking about expanding the teachers union and taxing the rich and yes, having a sanctuary state. All of which could be a receipt for failure. With N.J. and N.Y. losing people daily because of high taxes and regulations, Murphy wants to slap on more. Between the cops, firemen and teachers union, we are suffocated with some of the highest taxes in the United States.
I can understand how Murphy would be pensive about cops and firemen, being of Irish decent I am sure he had many relatives that did both. However, like Bloomberg, you cannot take your personal feelings to the office you hold.You must govern at a responsible rate of what is best for the N.J. taxpayer.
Murphy, like Corzine, was a Goldman Sachs guy. Like Robert Reuben, Blankfine, Corzine and Murphy are radical left. Many of the Wall Street people are very left and belong to the Council of Foreign Relations, Illuminati and other left wing socialist societies that want a one world order. Murphy, like Corzine want us to be heavily dependent on the government, a welfare state if you will. he wants to give to public servants and he wants us to pay for it, socialism at it’s finest! Top this off with a sanctuary state and we have every criminal from every shit hole country here in our state, riddled by higher taxes, and stronger unions.
Before he leaves office, N.J. should become the equivalent of Venezuela or Haiti. don’t blame just him, I still don’t know who the republicans ran against this big headed yo-yo! Like congressman Gottesman, the Republicans ran a weak candidate, Garrett s time had come and gone and he should have stepped aside.
So strap in, like Teddy Kennedy, the Molly Mc’ Guires, the Danny Greens of the world, we have an old time, old school Irish socialist in office.
