Christie's new plan in New Jersey should make his conservative buddies happy and welcome him back into the fold.

Governor Christie plans to sell the state run New Jersey Lottery to a billionare in Italy.  He accomplishes a triple whammy by privatizing the lottery and outsourcing its New Jersey jobs.  The third part of this incredible acrobatic feat deals with the elderly and schools.  The lottery profits are used to subsidize secondary education and help with cost for seniors in New Jersey.  He is undercutting education and getting rid of the seniors all in one fell swoop.  Oh conservatives this is a dream come true.  

There is no good reason to do this, it will only hurt the citizens of New Jersey on multiple levels, but alas, what the hell do they care about people?  At a time when New Jersey has not recovered sufficiently with jobs it makes soooooo much sense to outsource some of those jobs both in the public and private sectors.  Just when you think they cannot get any worse the floor drops out and we reach another level of stupidity and cruelty.  When will the country and this state inparticular wake up and recognize these fools as representatives of the white, rich and connected world wide.  IT IS TIME TO START THINKING COUNTRY FIRST.

I am sick and tired of this bull........!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
