    Take a look at the commentary regarding Union County in the December 2010 Fitch rating of certain UCIA bonds (at ) :

    “The tax base is sizable at $24 billion or $149,799 per capita, and has yet to experience a contraction during this current economic cycle. However, data available to Fitch indicates the county housing foreclosure rate is 214% of the national average.”

    Fitch doesn’t mention the County’s overall property tax situation, just the existing debt levels which don’t bother Fitch since the County Bonds are entitled to the first dollars taxed and the County pledges to raise taxes if it needs to.

    But with the County’s tax burdens being as onerous they are, it is not surprising that Union County’s residents are suffering to the point where they lose their homes MORE THAN TWICE as often on average as other US counties.

    (P.S. John –Check with Peter Scull on this latest outrage:

    The 2011 Union County Golf fee schedule now allows non-county resident to pay only a total $50 more a year to benefit from the lower fees and to reserve times equal to residents. As a resident, however, I pay currently many thousands in property taxes to live in this County, and now will almost certainly be crowded out by golfers from Middlesex and other counties. This is no doubt all part of an effort to render the County golf operations profitable for KenperSports and to salvage the failing golf operations “tunaround” plan the County Manager instituted in 2008-2009.

    But the effect of this latest move will be effectively to complete the destruction of what was for many decades a golf program primarily for the benefit of the County’s residents who paid and are paying for the courses with their tax dollars — and who received and will receive no property taxes on the land devoted to those County golf courses. Clearly, the Freeholders in approving this new fee schedule had no regard whatsoever of the interests of County resident golfers whom they claim to represent.

    And if this plan to open up and fill the County’s courses with non-County golfers made any sense at all, it would have made more sense to try it in 2008, BEFORE Oak Ridge Golf Course was closed and destroyed.)

    10 Years ago today The UC Freeholders voted 8-0 1 Freeholder astained for the Privatization of the Printing Facility at 79 W Grand Street Elizabeth NJ. Xerox Inc has been operating the print shop since January 5, 2003. During the public speaking portion of the regular meeting August 22 2002 9 residents and 1 UC employee stepped forward to protest the closing of a department and allowing directors freeholders and county managers the reign to pillage and rape UC Taxpayers.
    Ex VP Freeholder Mary Rutolo said. The Privatization of the Printing Facility will cost millions less than expected in the years to come. What Union County Taxpayers didn’t know was the budget was only half a million dollars including salarys healthcare and office supplies. The expected budget of the UC Printing Facility is over $3 Million Dollars per year as of 2012. Just ask Ex CM George Devanney c/o Royal Printing Co and Ex UC Freeholder Linda and Richard Stendler SVO Printing Rockaway NJ…

    I know blogs survive and prosper based upon the number of posts and “hits”, but it seems that yours is dominated by Tough Love to the extreme. Have you considered limiting the posts by anyone on any given article, or some other way to get more diversity of opinion? Tough subject I know, but Tough Love is a serial blogger on this and many other sites across the nation that report on pension issues and seems too dominant on your site in my opinion. An alternative to some kind of limit would I guess be to change the name to Tough Love on Pensions. Or, I can just stop reading.

    Where did you get your information regarding Bricklayers LU 1 Pension Plan being underfunded $16 million?

    I’m not sure the Bricklayers LU1 Pension being unfunded is accurate.

    Please consider banning “Marine One” from posting to this site, or at least giving him a warning. His latest posts have gone beyond merely unpleasant to full-blown nastiness, vulgarity and misogyny. There is no place for this kind of so-called commentary on any blog, let alone this one.

    I will leave a comment for you. I am a pice widow worried about social security and my small pension being taken away. As I have taken good care of my health I will probably outlive my own savings. When my benefits are gone Trump wNts to cancel social security and states can’t manage the money the MEMBERS earned and contributed to OUR pension fund I will go to Trenton and commit suicide, better than ending up homeless or mooching off my child. All this political arguing and stealing by you blockheads no thought of the seniors you are terrifying on a daily basis.


  10. Title: COVID-19 Vaccination Causing Paralysis, Convulsions, And Death – Videos and Proof Inside!

    Who is Tiffany Dover? This is Tiffany Dover:

    Proof that Tiffany Pontes Dover is dead. She has not released a video of her current status in almost 2 weeks after taking the vaccine on any social media platform, and the place see was employed at, is covering up her death. More details down below.

    Part 2

    CHI Memorial hospital posted the video on twitter but because of questions and backlash, they have put their twitter account on private. You can see by the url structure, it directs to the CHI Memorial twitter post but since their account is on private, you can’t view the 20 second video post, but can see the replying comments from the video. (tweet has been taken down)

    CHI Memorial twitter account has been protected because of the backlash (

    Because the twitter video is on private, CHI Memorial posted the video also on youtube in which the link is here


    Whats strange is the “tiffany” person in the 20 second video has her hair parted in the middle instead of the side, this person looks bigger in weight and more broad in the shoulders, etc. So here are side by side pictures of the real Tiffany dover, and her body double.

    Aside from that, she hasn’t posted to social media at all. And futhermore all her pictures show her hair parted to 1 side, and never in the middle. You can follow her facebook profile here:

    And this is her instagram here:

    Revelation 13:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
    18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

    If you take the Mark of the Beast, this is what happens:
    Revelation 14:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
    9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
    10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
    11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    If you refuse the Mark of the Beast, this is what happens
    Revelation 20:4 King James Version (KJV)
    4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    Repent of your sins, trust and have faith in Jesus Christ, read your Bible, and be water baptised in Jesus name.

    For God so Loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life. -John 3:16 KJV

    Jesus saith unto him: “I AM The Way, The Truth and The Life, no man (no one) cometh to The Father but by Me.” -John 14:6 KJV

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. -Romans 10:9,10 KJV

    Whosoever denieth The Son, the same hath not The Father; he that acknowledgeth The Son hath The Father also. -1 John 2:23 KJV

    Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is The Son of God, God dwelleth in him and he in God. -1 John 4:15 KJV

    He that believeth on The Son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us Eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son.
    He that hath The Son hath Life; and he that hath not The Son of God hath not Life.
    -1 John 5:10-12 KJV

    And from Jesus Christ, who is The Faithful Witness, and The First begotten of the dead, and The Prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own Blood and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever Amen. -Revelation 1:5 and 6 KJV

    Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by The Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is The Stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the Head of the Corner. Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:10-12 KJV

    Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name; That at The Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God The Father. -Philippians 2:9-11 KJV

    The Bible says:
    And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before God day and night, has been cast down.
    And they overcame him by The Blood of The Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. – Revelation 12:10,11 KJV
