Raising the  Minimum Wage – Good or Bad? In Theory Raising the minimum wage to $12 or $15 an hour is a good idea. Yet those who are already earning $12 or $15 per hour probably won’t be satisfied to work for what is now the new minimum wage. They’ll want $18 or $20 an […]

A Day without Immigrants? On February 16th, Mayor Diaz led a protest march of illegal immigration supporters in Perth Amboy which shut down some businesses and all Taxis.

Putting Perth Amboy First: In 2008, I raised my hand and took an oath to uphold the constitution and to put the City of Perth Amboy first. Those first few months were a very difficult time. The poor decisions and burden of one administration had nearly compromised the well-being of an entire City. But through hard […]

A Wake-Up  Call Hillary Clinton is crying the blues over her loss on Election Day. Boy is she mad about this loss of not being elected President. It’s so funny that she said the FBI made her lose the election over the emails. Those paid protesters are upset about Trump winning BIG TIME. This was […]

Illegal Housing & Illegal Immigrants Wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume that some residents who live in illegal attics or basement dwellings are here illegally?
