Gov. Christie: Why We Love Him

Fiscal sanity. How refreshing.

Gov. Chris Christie is taking $65 million, the entire allocation, from the state's global warming fund, and $5.9 million, from the toxic waste site cleanup program, to help close the over $10 billion deficit in his $29.3 billion 2010-11 state budget, the state environmental protection commissioner said Monday.

Hah! We all know his thought process.

“This is total bullshit anyway, so let’s just completely defund it and move that money over here…”

Think of all the people that $65 million represents. People who were supposed to basically hassle businesses and individuals to be in compliance with regs that address a nonexistent environmental disaster.

They are going to have to find something productive to do now, those people.

"Governor Christie has announced that he will cut money (the $65 million) for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and $68 million in programs funded by RGGI will be eliminated,'' Tittel said.

RGGI, a compact with multiple states in the Northeast, was established to create programs that reduce the greenhouse gas footprint. Programs help pay for clean energy programs that reduce carbon and create jobs.

Programs create jobs? The Hell you say!

Let us take an informal poll in the comments:

If you had $250 burning a hole in your pocket, and you could either use it to buy a haircut, some groceries, movie rental, and pay a kid to mow the lawn

*OR*

Pay a bunch of blowjobs to sit around a conference table in the shape of a big leaf, talking about how they're going to force XJC Corp. to pay $X gajillion for the pleasure of disposing of paper they used to just cart away in a dumpster like everybody else,

Which would you rather buy?

Yeah.

Tittel charged that by cutting the fund, the governor is hurting the environment and keeping green jobs out of the state.

You dodged a bullet, New Jersey. Check out Michigan to see what a 'green job' economy looks like. These green jobs, they may be chic, but they have an alarming propensity for destroying all the other, conventional non-green (ie., efficient and productive) jobs.

Thanks to Jazz.
