Back on Tweeting Path

Earlier this year S3770 was going to create a commission to push ideas like the Path to Progress to reform New Jersey public pensions. However S3770 was vetoed so Senate President Steve Sweeney is left with the twitter path which he took to this weekend:

These sentiments were repeated in an op-ed on with one twist added:

Pension amortization reform – this could save billions of dollars for taxpayers over the next decade

To achieve those savings the question for the actuaries is how many millenniums they are comfortable using for the revised amortization period.


S3770 Establishes “New Jersey Economic and Fiscal Policy Review Commission” to provide ongoing review of State and local tax structure, economic conditions, and related fiscal issues.

    Trump apparently thinks the US Treasury is his personal piggyback to spend on PR to prop up his re-election prospects.

    ANOTHER reason to impeach or Criminally Charge him.

    Nancy Pelosi said during the fake political impeachment that Americans would not get a vote. This is how Democrats have proceeded with every issue. Vote 2020

  4. I can’t imagine carrying around all of the hate, rage and dysfunctional TDS for all these years……..just can’t imagine it although I suspect for those affected by it that it has been there all along and for some reason Trump triggered it to manifest as such.

    It’s almost funny ……….at least I get a good chuckle when I read TLs rage filled posts:)

      NO ONE gets “triggered” as easily and as fast as TL, aka the TDS of commenting “off topic” 🙂 !


      • A friend once told me I couldn’t play a two handed instrument like a guitar because my my right and left brain had an inch of space between them. Someday I will write a screed, maybe TL will read it. In the meantime “I want more dinner triangle”. Actually I don’t.


  5. Hey E

    Have you read about the former Berger County Judge Napolitano being accused of sexual assault by two men?



    • Posted by Rex the Wonder Dog! 🐶🐶🐶🦴🦴🦴 on September 29, 2020 at 12:39 pm

      Oh man, I loved liked this guy’s commentary. Especially the way he analyzed the law.

      “A Sussex County man has filed a $15 million lawsuit against former Bergen County Judge Andrew Napolitano on Monday, alleging the Fox News analyst attempted to rape him and offered legal help in exchange for sexual favors.

      James Kruzelnick, a Wantage resident who says he frequently waited on Napolitano at the Mohawk House in Sparta, alleges in his suit that Napolitano sexually assaulted him between 2014 and 2017 and used the promise of legal advice to pressure Kruzelnick into performing sex acts.

      Kruzelnick is the second man this month to sue Napolitano alleging sexual assault. Charles Corbishley, a South Carolina resident who stood in Napolitano’s Hackensack court on criminal charges in the 1980s, accused Napolitano of forcing him to perform oral sex in return for a more lenient sentence.”
