Sad that he was re-elected. I suppose now we know where his focus has been...

Liberty: Ironic name considering you support those who are most against it. The biggest voter supression efforts were coming from the, also ironically named, Right. There, I used my own words. But there's nothing wrong with using your own words to counter your statement. In case you refuse to notive, this coutry is headed, albeit slowly, toward recovery. I return to the failed rebulican policies of the Bush era would be the true doom of the United States. Thank goodness a large enought percentage of the population had the clarity to see that.

The same crew at local and federal levels have been re-elected. There is no wonder why we are at the mercy of such a broken system. Even the stock market is down over 2.5% on this outlook. Talk about the governor, Mendham was fully restored by Wed of last week. Face it, Washington twp is unimportant politically and we have no influence on anything. Taxes will increase further and JCPL RATES WILL RISE DUE TO THE FIRST CLASS RESTORATION EFFORT THAT SO MANY ARE EXPERIENCING.

I agree with much written here, though I find it interesting that while Obama got 50% of the local vote Democrats are still scared to let their neighbors know they support him. Hmmmmm, could it be the scary personal rhetoric aimed at the individuals rather than the candidates? On a positive note, we figured out we can do without Comcast and will be cancelling our subscription. Our DSL and telephone line never lost connectivity. They have always been more reliable than cable or JCP$L. It is amazing how much live streaming news and shows you can access through the internet.
