Residents Sue To Stop Booze On The Boardwalk

Pringle is their lawyer! As reported in the Coast Star: Two Belmar residents filed a lawsuit against the borough this week, seeking to overturn the town’s designation of the beachfront as an area in need of redevelopment. On May 20, the law firm of Pringle Quinn Anzano, filed suit on behalf of borough residents Steven […]

Memorial Day

Remember that the Constitution outlines our freedoms but it was the Continental Army that made our Constitution possible. And I can see only two causes worth the sacrifice of our children: to protect our Constitution and to defend this country. So I hope that scenes like this can someday become much less familiar to we Americans. […]

Should Have Used The Ipe

Well we’re certainly not going to make much headway this weekend against paying off that $20 million bond we took out to pay for the new boardwalk.  Even though the skies are supposed to clear up tomorrow it is still going to be too cool for very many people to spend time (and money) at […]

Last Fall’s Silver Lining

No, there is no silver lining to Hurricane Sandy.  Only a college-educated economist, taught not to recognize any difference between money velocity and wealth creation, could find some benefit to the massive destruction of valuable assets.

Not one to miss […]

Don’t Fix It, End It

The IRS can not be reformed.  If we are going to tax income income in this country then we need an agency that makes it it’s own business to be involved in everybody else’s business.  And any organization with the power to track the production of every person living in this country, citizen and non-citizen […]
