  • OPINION: America can’t tolerate stealth-Democrat Donald Trump

    By Scott St. Clair | The Save Jersey Blog In advocating a tax hike, Donald Trump finally splits the blanket when it comes to any claim to be a Republican. His pro-abortion, pro-gun control, pro-crony capitalism record is now augmented by a “no problem” willingness to raise taxes. It’s immaterial on who they’re raised – […]

  • One Expensive Beach Day

    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 […]

  • Stock market chaos is (more) bad news for New Jersey’s finances

  • 2015: New Jersey (still) has nation’s worst property taxes

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog In case you’d forgotten, my fellow long-suffering property taxpayers, the state of New Jersey (still) has highest effective rate in the Union at 2.38% according to the latest analysis conducted by the Tax Foundation thanks to decades of craptastic policy-making.

  • New GOP leadership lures FedEx facility to North Arlington

    By Matt Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog Whether you’re reading Save Jersey or any number of other news sources, the story line remains the same: that flawed governmental policies are driving out of the Garden State in record numbers.

  • Bramnick talks gas tax on NJ 101.5: “Everything thing is on the table”

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog When it comes to replenishing New Jersey’s troubled Transportation Trust Fund, Save Jerseyans, Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Union) is apparently hoping that a compromise-oriented position helps his party in the November legislative elections. “I’m in the same position as the governor; everything thing is on the table. If […]

  • Clinton ready to renew Obama’s jobless nightmare

    By Joe Sinagra | The Save Jersey Blog A record 93,770,000 Americans 16 or older did not participate in the nation’s labor force in July, Save Jerseyans, and that grisly number increased by 144,000 individuals over the month.

  • Exit 13 fire turns NJ Turnpike into world’s largest parking lot

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Turnpike craziness isn’t anything new, Save Jerseyans, but it isn’t ordinary for the entire darn thing to back up! But a dump truck fire and possible resulting infrastructure damage have left traffic stopped (not snarled or slowed… STOPPED) at Exit 13 of the nation’s most heavily-congested stretch of interstate: […]

  • PILOT must go! My view of Jersey City from Monroe Township

    By Harold Kane | The Save Jersey Blog I live in Monroe Township, Middlesex County. We have a major problem with our state aid for the school system. We don’t get any. I shouldn’t say that. Monroe gets $2.8 million from Trenton to support a budget of $110 million. This equates to $437 per student. The balance is […]
