    They actually amended the NJ Constitution and added an automatic COLA to boot, specifically because the votes to overturn his veto were not there.  

    Good intention, bad precedent.  

    States, too, are minimum wage battlegrounds; illustrating the issue's popularity, the same New Jersey voters who re-elected Republican Gov. Chris Christie effectively overturned one of his vetoes by voting to raise the state's minimum wage to $8.25 an hour.

    Self awareness is one of God's greatest gifts. Don't waste it.
