N.J.’s poverty rate takes on water while Atlantic City drowns, Census shows

The struggles of Atlantic City are well documented. Casino closures. The threat of bankruptcy. The recent state takeover. But while much has been made about the pain being felt by the city and its most famous commercial tenants, new data show its residents likely feel the sting more than most.

Why Native-Americans are so poor

Tomorrow, as you celebrate the meal the Pilgrims ate with Indians, pause a moment to thank private property. I know that seems weird, but before that first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims nearly starved to death because they didn’t respect private property. When they first arrived in Massachusetts, they acted like Bernie Sanders wants us to act. […]

By Joe Sinagra | The Save Jersey Blog We can’t take care of our own, Save Jerseyans, and we wonder why we pay higher taxes, go deeper in debt, continue to fund what we can’t afford, and have no money left to fund our own humanitarian problems. Let’s look at the numbers behind Syrian refugee […]

How many more kids must we lose before liberals admit they’re wrong?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog You’re living under a rock (or haven’t paid your Internet bill in the last month) if you haven’t see this viral video from the Baltimore riots, Save Jerseyans: Yeah, it’s kind of funny, but it’s also pathetically sad.

Rutgers Prof: Racism Makes Poor People Fat

Cobb: LBJ “Destroyed” Black Families

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s a true and awful shame that Garry Cobb isn’t getting more (defined as “any”) help from the powers-that-be, Save Jerseyans, because the former Philadelphia Eagle and current NJ-01 Republican nominee has a story to tell voters whom the GOP just can’t seem to reach. When they even […]

Ryan’s Racist? Then Which Dem Isn’t?

The Unemployed States of America

By Joe Sinagra | The Save Jersey Blog President Barack Obama has achieved the dubious distinction of being a sitting president with the highest unemployment rate ever, Save Jerseyans.

Rome (and Newark) Are Burning

By Synnove Bakke | The Save Jersey Blog Don’t believe certain people of the Liberal media, Save Jerseyans; conservatives really could care less if Booker is gay. Rome is burning and while Rome aka Newark is burning, Cesar is either out of town, hanging with celebrities or he’s hanging out on twitter and other social media. I think US […]
