    Maybe some of you should start planning your lives instead waking up like every day is the first day of your life.

    Maybe you should consider the time and money went into other important areas instead of being condescending from your higher tower and stop acting like I acted like I had just been born. Jerk. You do not know me and you sure as hell do not have the right to insinuate that I squandered time. Better men and women have told me otherwise.

    Now, good evening.

    You honestly have no idea what you're talking about.

    NJ state income tax on "average" Americans (the NJ tax bracket earning between $40,001 and $75,000) is 5.525%

    In NC the rate on folks earning between $12,751 and $60,000 is 7%.

    In AL the flat rate on anyone earning over $3000 is 5%.

    In GA it's 6% on anyone earning over $7001.

    In NE it's 6.84% on anyone earning over $27,001.

    Yes, the tax rate in NJ increases on folks earning over $75,000 (to 6.37% for those earning between $75,001 and $500,000, and to 8.97% for those earning more than $500,001) but by and large those of us in those tax brackets can afford to live pretty well in NJ even with the extra 1% or 2% in taxation.

    NJ has some of the highest (if not the highest) property taxes in the country (1.89% as a percentage of appraised home value), but not significantly higher than TX (1.81%), NE (1.70%), or ND (1.42%).

    The "stuff" that makes the cost of living so high in NJ are things that have little to do with taxes. Home value and rent is a big one, NJ traditionally ranks number 1 or 2 for both of those. Food is more expensive in NJ, entertainment is more expensive, clothing is more expensive.

    But, again, being among the states with the highest average income, many in NJ can easily afford these higher costs.

    It only becomes a problem when your family isn't making $75,000 + a year.

    Again, you don't know what you're taking about and your comments, not NJ's taxes, are what's political.

    So it's OK to not pay them if you don't want to raise the minimum wage?

    It wouldn't be hypocritical. However not paying an employee money to do work is wrong regardless if you support minimum wage increase or not.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Do you have a quote of his where he said "don't frequent brothels"?

    Unpaid internships are pretty common, not just in Washington either.
