I don't think anyone would be shocked to see some bums and crackheads from Newark or East Orange pulling something like this. I really don't think you're going to see this happening in Parsippany though.

I really wouldn't know if it's all his fault, I think he inherited a partial train wreck when he took over as Governor.

I think he should not seek re-election and go back to acting.

You would think that in CA with all the money floating around from the celebrities, they might just throw some back into the people of their own state/country rather than sending it over to others.

Oprah, Jolie, Penn, etc. could put all these people in a proper shelter for a year with their milk money.

Do you know that as a % of income, conservative charitable contributions >> liberal charitable contributions? Easier to say that you care than put your $ where your mouth is, I guess.

Please explain this one to me. I don't think I'm understanding.

You are so right, those people could certainly help out TONS!! If Oprah put the money into the US that she spent (and continues to) on that school in Africa, imagine how many that would help?
