I received an anonymous call which was so anonymous the party called from a pay phone. The caller lives in the area where Vice Mayor Adam Trenk claims to live. The message was that Trenk is doing work on the property without town permits and that a complaint was filed with Building Inspector Richard Esposito at town hall and he was investigating. The caller said all of the neighbors around Trenk's address were afraid to complain. Small wonder since he is the most vindictive Jerseyite on the planet.

Time to start watching U.S. cities go bankrupt. Prior to Detroit, there was Stockton, California, and, according to Stephen Moore, now the chief economist with the Heritage Foundation, there are more than sixty of the largest cities that “are plagued with the same kinds of retirement legacy costs that sent Detroit in Chapter 9 bankruptcy” last year.

News Flash - Republicans and Democrats do not work for the American people.
For the most part, the US government is a racket, a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem that may not exist, would not be affected if it did exist, or only exists due to the actions of government itself.
American politicians exploit the racket to run a swindle, taking money or property from someone by using lies or tricks.

Recently President Obama has spoken several times about his intention to use "executive orders" to bypass Congress and pursue things he wants accomplished.
In addition to showing a certain contempt for representative self-government (Congress is elected by the people, is accountable to them, and is not a mere inconvenience to be shunted aside by an aggravated chief executive), Mr. Obama's approach veers dangerously into murky waters. His potential actions will have to be scrutinized for their constitutionality, not only as to whether they violate something explicit in the Constitution, but also if they create or expand powers about which our charter text is silent.

What happened here was you've got a 501(c)(4) law that people think was confusing, that the folks did not know how to implement because it basically says if you're involved—"
That was President Barack Obama's explanation on Fox News' O'Reilly Factor of how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) started targeting tea party and other non-profit groups back in 2010. That is, before O'Reilly interrupted him.
