News Corruption in NJ

  1. Jul 23, 2009 #1
    The Information Ministry of the Glorious People's Democratic Revolutionary Republic of Northern South Jersey (GPDRRNSJ (NSJ for short) for short) has released the following communique: "Hoboken and Secaucus are in the north. You gotta problem with that?"

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aBblMZUVJ6To" [Broken]

    What do you expect? When the news came out about those 4 innocent bystanders that were injured during a bank robbery in Hoboken, we in the GPDRRNSJ didn't know what to make of it. We hadn't realized that in North Jersery there were 4 innocent people.

    I spent a year interning at Stevens. Didn't work. I think you need to wear sunglasses or a trenchcoat maybe

    Oooooh, I'm in New Jersey right now.

    Obama was just in NJ a little while ago campaigning for Corzine's reelection and he praised the mayor of Hoboken I think.

    At least our pizza>>>your pizza.

    Politics is just so darned competitive. What could you expect when all the sex scandals are becoming too old hat that nobody notices anymore. In order to keep up with Republicans, Democrats had to start resorting to selling body parts and bouncing $25 million dollar checks! That last one has me boggled. Did the bank really just take his word for it that he would be good for two $25 million overdrafts on an account with a zero balance?

    But, you should have warned me not to drink anything while reading the article. I had just taken a mouthful of soda when I got to this part:
    :rofl: I thought they were talking about politicians and rabbis in NJ. Faces of honesty, integrity and rectitude? :rofl:

    On the upside, it sure looks like the cops and prosecutors in NJ are doing a pretty good job. Zowie.

    You have to remember that they are working in what the military calls a "target-rich" environment. You can't swing a cat in NJ without hitting a mobster.

    Perhaps they should just be allowed to run the place - after all 'organized' crime would be better than 'local' government.

    Anyone else read SnowCrash ?

    They already do run the place, and they ARE the local government in NJ. :biggrin:

    Though, I guess it does make sense that they chose body part sales there. I guess it's sort of like a chop shop for stolen cars...if you sell off the parts, you can make a quick profit while hiding the evidence. Maybe the swamps are getting full.

    That's not true. Infants are indicted in the womb, but can't be convicted until after they are born. Sadly, juries often lack the will to punish infants and toddlers.
