Correction: Middletown is still split

Middletown remains divided between two congressional districts under the new map. 

South of Route 35 is in the 4th district, represented by Republican Chris Smith.  North of Route 35 remains part of Frank Pallone’s 6th district.  Under the old map, the portion of Middletown south of Route 35 was in Democratic Congressman Rush Holt’s district.

At our first look at the map, we incorrectly concluded that Middletown had been combined entirely into the 6th.

Our apologies to Larry Cirignamo.

With this correct information, it would seem that district 6th remains safe for Frank Pallone.

    So, those of us south of 35 go from having a rocket scientist as congressman to someone who argues against a woman’s right to choose. Okay, you guys win- I officially abandon my belief in evolution.

    goodbye and good riddance to the rocket scientist. Now he can focus all of his efforts on wasting federal money on the city of Trenton.

    Question for backwardstepping – a woman’s right to choose what? To kill a fetus? Why not complete the statement? No matter how benign you say it, what you are espousing is killing a fetus. At least be honest about it. And if you feel that being able to kill a fetus is somehow evolving, we are in trouble. The overall tone of your post is snide and superior – that if somehow, a person doesn’t believe in your “right” to kill a fetus, then you are not as enlightened or intellectual as your beloved “rocket scientist.” Typical liberal arrogance.

    There are days when I feel like killing any liberal in sight. Too bad the cops wouldn’t agree with a little guy’s right to choose

    I will be happy to complete the statement my “Proud” and surely “male” Republican friend-

    ..the right to choose whether to carry a fetus to term” – you know- the one growing inside or her (not your) body?

    Clear enough for you? Maybe Jackie Speier, a lady with more “cajones’ than any of you male “deciders” of women’s rights can explain it more clearly for you – she’s already done that for Chris Smith…


  6. Proud Republican said at 3:09 pm on December 24th, 2011:

    Gotta love the liberal spin. Ok, so a woman decides “not to carry a fetus to term.” What happens to the fetus? And stop with the angry feminist talking points – remember, there was a male who helped create the fetus that you want the “right” to kill. If you don’t want to carry a human fetus to term, here’s a novel idea, don’t get pregnant in the first place.

    Proud Republican:

    “If you don’t want to carry human fetus to term, …don’t get pregnant in the first place”.

    Do you hand that line to all the young girls who get raped by their uncles or neighbors or other males who graciously helped to “create” the fetus? Do you support birth control measures of all types? Do you support Planned Parenthood’s attempts to help women NOT conceive, even if you don’t approve of their abortion services?

    You know, if you feel the need to inject yourself into women’s private medical decisions, you should allow us females to exercise that same right. So perhaps if you can’t “get it up” we have the right to deny you your Viagra (after all, if the good lord wanted you to reproduce, he wouldn’t afflict you with such a problem, correct?)

    And if you happen to fall ill to the point your loved ones decide to “pull the plug” or not resuscitate you, can all of us “feminists” come and force the doctors to keep you going because OUR religious or moral beliefs may be that all people should be kept alive as long as medically possible?

    P.S. Pride is a sin. Merry Christmas

  8. ResponsibleFemale said at 7:48 pm on December 24th, 2011:

    Wow BackwardStepping, way to take the ‘Merry’ out of Christmas. You stepped over the line with that last comment. No comparison.

  9. Proud Republican said at 8:18 pm on December 24th, 2011:

    Too close to the family celebration to try and wade through the incoherent hysteria of your post. Simple question – what happens to the fetus when you exercise your “right” not to carry the fetus to term?

  10. BackwardStepping said at 8:58 pm on December 24th, 2011:

    Simple questions for you –

    What happens to the young girls raped and impregnated that are forced to carry out their pregnancies?

    What happens to those not as fortunate and perfect as you Proud Republican- those who do not have families to support them or who were not as perfect in their ability to avoid pregnancy? Will you slam them as “welfare queens” when they cannot support them?

    What happens to YOU, when I come to your hospital room and insist that your family keep you on life support even though your loved ones choose not to. I’m sure you will welcome my intrusion into your world as much as I welcome yours. If the world is painted in black and white- that applies to you too my proud friend.

    What happens to those who were not as perfect as you Proud Republican and got pregnant but cannot afford more children?
    Do they bear the children then read this blog where they are regularly slammed as welfare queens?

  11. Proud Republican said at 9:19 pm on December 24th, 2011:

    Since you refuse to answer a simple question, I’ll answer it for you – the fetus is killed and discarded. As for your worry about welfare queens, it all comes down to personal responsibility. There are dozens of methods to prevent pregnancy – it is their fault they become pregnant in the first place. In your world, infanticide is simply another means of birth control. Btw, I also support mandatory Norplant for all welfare recipients.

  12. BackwardStepping said at 9:53 pm on December 24th, 2011:

    “BTW, I also support mandatory Norplant for all welfare recipients”

    I’m sure you do Proud Republican. If Planned Parenthood made such a statement, you “proud Republicans” would be howling at the moon.

    And no, I don’t support abortion as a means of birth control. I don’t even support amniocentisis for those who would not abort under any circumstance-it merely introduces an element of risk to a pregnancy that would never be aborted even under the worst diagnosis.

    But that’s just me- I don’t feel I have the right to deny amniocentisis to women who choose to risk their pregnancies for the sake of gaining information about the fetus pre-term- like Sarah Palin.

    this, as we can see here, remains a defining issue of all time, and will continue to be so.. for all the explanations and justifications, comes down to: either one believes human life begins at conception, (no matter how it got there),or one explains/justifies it away, when “choosing” to kill it….I for one “choose” to be sad for, and ask blessings on, all those millions of tiny lost souls…

    Wow backward stepping or should i call you bs for short. You really got your clock cleaned in that exchange

  15. Bristol Palin, Teen Activist said at 12:15 am on December 29th, 2011:

    Clock cleaned? “Conservatives rule” declares “Proud Republican” winner! You should set aside your biased “officiating” and stick to parking your nose in strange women’s wombs.
