Governor Christie. I would want to tell him enough is enough, it is time to stop blaming all the public employees for the problems of the State of NJ. It is time to put the blame where it is suppose to be, on the politicians that have created this problem, and not the hard working police officers, firefighters, EMS, dispatchers, and the teachers. The people who risk their lives everyday and that are responsible for teaching the children who are our future. It's time to really look at the problems that surround us everyday and how things are so backwards. How people who play sports are making millions of dollars and the people that are responsible for teaching are children and protecting us from the bad things in the world are making next to nothing and we keep trying to take more from them.

I love the beach but hate the ocean.

To always finish everything that I start and to do everything to the best of my ability.

Fiction. With fiction you can do and be anything that you ever wanted at least for a little while.
