He just undid all the respect he gained after Superstorm Sandy when he slapped his constituents in the face with that veto. The people of NJ suffered a huge economic setback with this storm and this was something he could have done to help them get back on their feet and stimulate jobs and the economic growth in NJ. It was a stupid move on his part.

Anyone who thinks he suddenly saw the light and changed during Sandy were deluding themselves. He is what he is, the veto proved that. 1 brief moment of sanity, does not equal an epiphany.

Frankly, with all the nonsense in New Jersey, along with high waters, I'd be looking for a different state to live in. Fortunately, I live in a generally liberal minded state, with fairly strong unions and decent wages. Even here, however, the GOP is trying to gain footholds right down to the county levels, so the fight is ongoing to keep what we enjoy here.

The America I Knew Has Almost Disappeared

Like an alcoholic family that won't discuss alcoholism (and proving Don Quixote's warning to never mention rope in the home of a man who's been hanged), far too many Americans are unwilling to acknowledge or even discuss the ongoing collapse of democracy in the United States.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
