    Anyone ever hear of this new guy running for senator in nj rullo? He is all over http://www.wobm.com and is on the radio all day I can get the station online to listen. He has so many problems with solutions it is great.

  2. Tr said at 4:37 pm on December 27th, 2011:

    These people need a name. I dub them
    Rulloites. These attempts to plug their candidate are amatuerish in the extreme.

  3. TR stomper said at 5:56 pm on December 27th, 2011:

    Hey Tr isn’t it interesting you are the only person who seems to attack anyone who supports Rullo every single article and plug. What do you stand for?

    Hey TR Stomper,

    Isn’t it interesting that “nobody’s listening” to Rullo, especially with stupid comments like the following comment that must have been written by a 1st grader?

    “He has so many problems with solutions it is great.”

    What with the the sophomoric grammer, who the hell would support a candidate with supporters like this.

    But, to answer your second question, TR & I stand for a “Rullobot” free world.

  5. Bob English said at 9:21 pm on December 27th, 2011:

    Rullo may not be very well know to voters outside of Ocean County but he has just as much right to run as anyone else. Actually none of the Senate candidates being talked about are going to have much name recognition (with average voters) outside of their own districts or home county.

    If nothing else with Rullo in, you get a contested primary, voters get a choice and the pols have not pre-anointed the nominee….all of which are good things no matter what the party is.

    I am sure Tr is one of those people you have to stand behind in the grocery store who picks on the cashier Bob England. I completely agree with you the guy has guts to stand up to the same old thing. He has my vote. Hopefully Tr works for the other team he will help lose lots of vote that go to Rullo. Very interesting article at wobm.com about Rullo he has alot of ideas Tr why put him down for solutions. The reason why good honest candidates don’t run is bullies like Tr who put down everyone. I think Bob England understands how a democracy works. I am sure Tr is at a desk in Kyrillos office, lol.

  7. Don't Tread on TR said at 11:34 pm on December 27th, 2011:

    Hit pause & reset:
    Read what TR has to say before you stomp him. You may learn something.

    “Just when you try to get out, they pull you back in.” I really wanted to try and stay out of this stuff for the week.

    Bob, nobody is denying Rullo his right to run. It is the childish posts by what seems to be a few sycophant like posters in order to try and make a name for him.

    And then, enter someone like “jack gull” making it about something it is not.

    I took a few moments to look at that wobm article, out of Ocean County; mind you. To me, it doesn’t seem like there’s a ground swell of support down there for Rullo.

    Enjoy the unicorns Rulloites. You seem to be wearing the same brand of tin foil hats that the Paulist nuts are wearing.

    Me, I’m going back to enjoying the Holidays.

  9. TR said at 2:07 pm on December 28th, 2011:

    I must admit Rullobots is better then Rullioites.

    Let me point out that I have not said one bad word about Joe Rullo.
    I have made fun of his followers in a vain attempt to teach them how to better serve their chosen candidate. Obviously not working out.

  10. Herb Roston said at 9:38 pm on December 28th, 2011:

    Wonder if Anna Little will represent the illegal alien who killed the 12 year old boy in Lakewood hit and run as his immigration attorney? She can pay off the loan she never paid back in her congress account.

  11. TR said at 10:42 pm on December 29th, 2011:

    Roston, You are an ass. First immigration lawyers do not represent immigrants in critiminal matters. Second a lot of immigration legal work is helping corporations get work visas for people they need,helping legal immigrants,helping people seeking asylum, helping people geytcitizenship..
    Do you hate immigrants so much you would deny them a lawyer?
    Anna deserves criticism for a few things. How she makes her living is not one of them.
    I repeat. You are an ass.
