  • Fulop isn’t paying for gender reassignment surgery. You are.

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Steven Fulop earned the adulation of media outlets and liberal activists this week for announcing that Jersey City will henceforth cover the gender reassignment surgical bills for its public employees.

    By Matthew Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog Mondays can be a little harsh and humorless, Save Jerseyans, so if you need a little pick-me-up, please enjoy the Democrat Party’s latest hypocrisy courtesy of the LD36/Bergen County!  Last month, the Bergen County Democratic ticket attended a rally in force for the “Fight for 15!” minimum […]

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We’ve talked a lot about the minimum wage here over the years but, since our neighbor to the north (New York) approved a $15 minimum wage at the end of next week for fast food workers, it’s time to revisit the biggest flaw in their logic. Can you […]

    By Joe Schilp | Cross-posted from Joe’s Blog I took my three kids to the beach today.  When I asked where they wished to go, they indicated Point Pleasant.  Two of them had been there before with the Girl Scouts for a lesson on the beach and sea creatures, so I guess that’s the place they […]
