… Micheal Nutter should know better [#cigarette taxes]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 1st,2014

.. and so should the Pennsylvania legislature …

.. it seems that Micheal Nutter is going to have to learn a hard lesson …

.. he is the mayor of Philadelphia . He wants to jack up cigarette taxes in the City of Brotherly Love …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. a lot . I do mean a lot …

.. the mayors of New York City have learned this lesson …. The hard way …

.. they have had a massive explosion of cigarette smuggling into N.Y.C. . Those dummies sit on the state line of two states , including New Jersey …

… those states do not have to do a think to profit from this . Now , Philly is going to have to learn the lesson …

.. Cigarette smuggling pays , dummy . Especially if you are on or near a state border . It also ends up wasting a lot of police manpower and time , stuff that can be better put to use elsewhere …

… the Lesbian Waitress Got Her Just Desserts …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 10th,2013

.. she got canned .

.. and she deserved it .

.. [link] to the local news coverage of the story …

.. [h/t — theNewYorkPost , theGatewayPundit.com]

.. Dayna Morales , 22 , an ex – Marine , was fired this weekend for perpetrating a fraud on the public . She lied to the public , the American people , and to her employer about a family failing to leave a tip , and also about leaving a so – called ” bigoted ” message on the receipt .

.. Well , guess what ? She got caught . The family in question contacted the media , blew the whistle , and produced the evidence to prove that she did get a generous tip , and that there was no message of any kind on the receipt .

.. Busted .

… Elections 2013 [New Jersey] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 11th,2013

.. well , Chris Christie won , and in a blowout .

.. He did very , very well in many demographics . Across the board . Women . Jews . Hispanics . Others . Even narrowed the

GOP deficits in the New Jersey House and in the New Jersey Senate .

.. Now , the speculation begins for 2016 . Can Christie win a 2016 general election ? You bet your boots he can . He can bring New Jersey and Delaware along , include Pennsylvania , and also put New York and Connecticut into play . It puts one hell of a dent into the DemoCraps ‘ playground .

.. You can also include potentially putting California into play . Potentially . If he can put New York into play , and grab New Jersey , along with Pennsylvania , California is possibly gettable . Expensive , yes . But gettable .

.. Christie now has an added year at his back . He has been re – elected (overwhelmingly , no less) , and can go out on the campaign trail , and collect chits from other candidates . He can stake out his positions before the presidential primary season , and can promote what he believes in , by who he chooses to support . From that , he can benefit quite a bit . We shall see …

… Christopher Christie in New Jersey [Governor] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 4th,2013

.. this one is a very easy endorsement …

.. Chris Christie is a strong personality , there can be no doubt . Christie suffers fools and liberals very rarely , and is

Governor of New Jersey at a town hall in Hills...

… Chris Christie Governor of New Jersey [R] … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(understandibly) intolerant of ignorant fools . Who isn ‘ t . Christie will , however , let you know about it , and why .

.. Is Christie a candidate for the Big Job ? He just might . Dealing with the Bronx Zoo that is New Jersey politics is no piece of cake . It takes a strong intellect and an even stronger personality to successfully deal with the knuckleheads inhabiting New Jersey ‘ s political system . Christie appears to be able to do so , and he does not even have control of either House of the legislature .

.. Just imagine what Christie could do if he did ? He could really work to overhaul things , even more so than is being done now . The back of the radical activist judiciary could finally be broken , once and for all . Also , a true flat – tax reform tax program could be implemented . Also , most of all , there would be hell to pay in the cities , where the corruption is . A Christie – supported AG could really bring in results …

.. enthusiastically support Chris Christie in New Jersey !! …

… Those Union Protests in Las Vegas are Sick …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 11th,2013

.. what i am referring to are Culinary Workers union protests at one of the largest non – union hotels that is left in the region . The Cosmopolitan is a large hotel , around [2,995] rooms , and it is owned by , of all people , Deutche Bank . Originally , Hyatt Hotels (the Pritzker family company) was going to build this monster , but the 2008 recession scuttled the plans . DB bought  the hotel / condo / parking garage / casino complex for around $1.2 billion .  .

.. Casinos are a big business . Ohio now has casino gambling , although the effect of the business is limited . There is no casino competition in Ohio . There are only 4 casinos , one each in Cleveland , Toledo , Columbus , and Cincinnati . Caesars owns and manages 2 ,  while Hollwood owns and manages the other 2 .

.. In Ohio , like the other states , casino gambling is tightly regulated . Ohio patterned its regulatory setup after New Jersey , where the regulatory setup is generally considered to be the best in the country . Right now , casino gambling in Ohio is set in the state ‘ s  constitution , so it will not grow for quite some time . In other states , it is quite different .

.. In Nevada , the casino industry is huge . Las Vegas is the nation ‘ s and the world ‘ s casino gambling capital .  Any gambling – related company that is anyone is there in Nevada . The size of the casinos . Geez whiz ! . They are as large as (the second coming) of the MGM – Grand , with over , you heard me right , [xx] rooms . Wow !

.. It will not be easy for the Culinary Workers . Most of the city ‘ s casino workers [porters , dealers , service , etc] are members of one union or another . However , the Culinary (Food Service) Workers are the largest and the most influential .  They are , like most  unions , heavily DemoCrap – leaning .  No big surprise there .

.. However , Nevada is unlike other states . Nevada has a significant – sized Latino community , and it is growing still . However , Clark County , in which Las Vegas sits , has resumed growing like crazy after the 2008-2011 recession . It is also , unlike the People ‘ s Republic of Taxifornia , much more Republican – leaning . Dean Heller , a Republican , is one of the U.S. Senator (with Dingy Harry Reid being the other) . Governor Brian Sandoval , a latino Republican , and former federal district court judge , is leading the way .

.. Nevada is a right – to – work state , but its efects are limited . A stronger right – to – work law would be very , very helpful . It will take a GOP legislature to do that . That would be nice . Also , it would take some balls among the casino hotel companies to stand up to the union thuggery . Once they do , their hold on the industry will be broken  , and done so for good …

… What Happens to the Senate Seat in New Jersey ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 4th,2013

.. the appointment in almost every state , save Oregon , is made by the Governor . Which means Governor Chris Christie [R-NJ] . Which presents the state , and Christie ,   with an interesting situation …

when is the special election ..

.. likely 2014 . Normally , the next general election is the Governor ‘ s election , this fall . However , it is the next FEDERAL general

Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ)

election to which this applies .So , who ever is appointed will not have to appear on a ballot for about 17 months .

Who makes the appointment ?

.. Christie .

How long does the new Senator serve ?

.. if there is more than two years left in the term , there is a special election held to fill out the remainder of the term . If there is less , then the appointee serves until the next general election for the seat .

Which is ? …

.. until the November election in 2014 , and once those results are certified . If the appointee does not run , the candidate who is elected immediately takes office .

Who ?

.. most likely , a Republican . Who knows ? I do not know New Jersey politics all that well , so a guess would be state Sen Thomas Kean , Jr (R) , the Lieutenant Governor  , Kim Guadagno , or state Senator Joe Kyrillos (R) , a recent GOP candidate for the other Senate Seat

against now discredited Dem Robert Menendez .

.. I have to admit , that it might be possible that Governor Christie just might appoint Newark mayor and (D) Cory Booker to the seat . The odds are not good , but it is possible . New Jersey is a light Blue state , but a Republican can win there , including conservatives , provided they run smart races , and are well – financed . One thing  about competing against Frankie Boy was that he was a hypocritical rich liberal . He derived much of his fortune from having helped found ADP , Inc . That , and the costs of dealing with the Dem machines in NJ counties , and also the New York City and Philadelphia media markets , make $$ a big necessity .

… What is Mayor Mikey thinking ?!?! …

Michael Bloomberg - Cartoon

… I am absolutely amazed at Micheal Bloomberg …

… Has he had a case of brain freeze , or what ? the pain , the suffering , the dislocation , and the supply shortages , not to mention the damage and the human suffering of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy has left one hell of  a mess , all over the region , especially in the state of New Jersey . At least Chris Christe is using his brain , in addition to his common sense …

… New Jerseyans are to be commended , so far . The damage that they have suffered from Sandy is hideous . Do they have a right to complain ? You bet they do . Are they ? Generally , no , they are not . They are putting on their thinking caps , and their tool belts , putting out their Bobcats ,  and putting their shoulders to the grindstone , and getting about the task of rebuilding …

… and Mayor Mikey and the City of New York  decide to go on with the New York Marathon ?!?! Is he crazy ? HELL Yes !!

… Chris Christie is leading , and doing so by example . He is not worried about his re – election chances , and he is up for election next year . If he handles this effectively , even Cory Booker will not dare challenge him …
