“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

New Jersey....basically an asylum

Folks, sometimes the jokes just write themselves...

TRENTON, N.J. - In about two weeks, New Jersey voters will decide whether to eliminate insensitive phrasing in the state Constitution that characterizes people with disabilities as "idiots" and "insane."

The offensive language, adopted in the Constitution in 1844, is aimed at barring people with limited mental capacity from voting: "No idiot or insane person shall enjoy the right of suffrage."

Ironically, with the N.J. state tax rates the highest in the nation, suffocating levels of pollution, and being the butt of thousands of jokes, you'd have to be either an idiot or insane to still be living there.

The people that live in New Jersey are the rich Italians who wanted to party and run their illegal operations in New York, but didn't want to live in the slums. So that means that they are either idiots, insane, or criminal, which means they can't vote. Why is New Jersey even a state? Isn't it just one big residential zone?

Ed-you live in Alabama. You should probably keep the jokes to yourself.

Hey moron, I'm the first person to poke fun of myself and my state. That gives me carte blanche to poke fun of others.

Anon, have you ever been to Alabama?
