Some quick facts about New Jersey:
  • New Jersey was the third state to join the union on December 18, 1787, fifteen days before Georgia and six days after Pennsylvania.
  • Population, as of 2010, is 8,791,894.
  • Senators are Frank Lautenberg (D) and Robert Menendez (D).
  • Representatives are Robert Andrews (D), Frank LoBiondo (R), Jon Runyan (R), Christopher Smith (R), Scott Garrett (R), Frank Pallone (D), Leonard Lance (R), William Pascrell (D), Steven Rothman (D), Donald Payne (D), Rodney Frelinghuysen (R), Rush Holt (D) and Albio Sires (D).
  • New Jersey has fourteen electoral votes. New Jersey is second only to Rhode Island in having more electoral votes per square mile than any other state. The state has voted blue for the past five presidential elections and had voted red for eight out of the ten before. Obama defeated McCain 57% to 42% in 2008.
In current news, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, Harry Alford, has recently made public his opinion of the business positions Democrats have assumed. Today on Laura Ingraham’s radio talk show Alford was quoted saying, “Obama wanted the National Black Chamber to dance to his music and have blind allegiance to his crazy programs and agenda, which are totally anti-business. We are a pro-business organization. So we have to stand on the side of business, and the benefit of our members, which are black entrepreneurs.”

Referring to Obama and his administration as “Marxist” and “fanatical”, Alford expressed regret in having voted for Barack Obama only “because he’s black”.

“That is a lesson I will take to my grave,” he said, followed by a claim that Obama is “wrecking” the country and is “dangerous”.

  1. It's funny how this guy is angry that they are going to stop federal financial aid for "for profit" colleges. And at the end of the interview they talk about individual initiative and not government handouts. Maybe those going to for profit schools should get loans from for profit banks. These people should stop whining to the federal government for financial aid out of one side of the mouth while talking about government handouts in the other. Should the taxpayer subsidize for profit colleges? Sounds like this guy thinks so. I wonder why? Is it for the good of the community? I've heard some bad things about the costs of those schools.
