#4 Dear Gover5nor Christie - There is no money. 'Got that? None. Zippo. As Mark Steyn puts it: we need $16.7 Trillion just to get UP to being flat and completely broke.
Back before we piddled the country away in support of an endless string of ridiculous boondoggle extravagances, we might have been able to help hard hit localities. But - we busted the piggy bank. It's empty. You just have to make do without Uncle Sugar pouring on the heaps of love.
Get used to it, baby. When the cupboard is bare, there are no more free lunches. It sucks - so - suck it up.
Oh - by the way - we don't need you to tell us how worthless Congress is. We can figure that out all by ourselves. Your complaints are just some more "gilding of the lily". Lots of us are waiting for our next chance to tip the bums out of office. We're tired of trying to polish a collection of turds.
Elections have consequences. How about calling up Barry and asking him to share some of his golfing and vacation money with your homeless disaster victims. Naw? 'Didn't think so.
In a few more years (months?), this miserable time in your state's history is going to be looking like "the good old days". You can bank on it.

#6 The US already surpassed the US$16.4 Trilyuhn debt marker before Dec. 31st. 2012, but the Powers that be + MSM Cronies want mainstream America to believe it won't be surpassed until towards mid-Jan 2013 or the EOM same.
* "Mark Steyn ... $16.7Trilyuhn" > Yuuupppp.
Big Govt. is the only one that sezzes that acquiring US$16.7Trilyuhn just to par to Zero or a "Balanced" Budget = "Budget Surplus" or the US being in the Black, NOT Par or in Arrears.
USSR/SOVIET-STYLE BUDGET, DEBT MASS "WRITE-OFFS" HERE WE COME.
