In 2017, Bob Menendez was accused of accepting private flights, campaign contributions and other bribes from a wealthy patron, Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, in exchange for official favors. His trial ended in a hung jury—two of the twelve jurors thought he was guilty.
#MenendezResign. Seventeen years of service is enough already.

Harwood asked #Biden about the failure to raise taxes on the rich.
It was House Democrats who removed those provisions from Biden's #BuildBackBetter legislation and replaced them with a tax cut for the rich. Especially the House Democrats from #NewYork, #NewJersey, and #California, where a lot of rich people fund House members' campaigns

🍅 What to do with extra, end-of-season tomatoes? I've seen 3 posts this morning about the bounty being gathered here and there.
I met YouTube celebrity chef, Pasquale Sciarappa this week and watched his Homemade Tomato Sauce how-to video. It's about 11 years old, when his son first convinced him he still had something to give the world in his early 70s.
Pasquale emigrated from Italy and lives in #NewJersey where he makes the sauce like he did in the Old Country. ❤️

Had a great time at Air Fest held at the Wildwood Naval Air Station! Here is an image I captured of an F-16C Fighting Falcon from the 177th Fighter Squadron out of Egg Harbor Township, NJ
I was super happy to capture this scene last night in Barnegat Light. The water was super still and the sky blended perfectly with the water!
We did it!

I know this is heracy, but I'm so angry at Uncle Floyd.
He's had all the performances from his show taken off Youtube, many of which were entirely unique and not archived anywhere.
So there's no way to watch old Zoogs Rift performances, or Crash Course in Science, or the Ramones, or Tiny Tim on the show.
I've heard there are DVDs, but the show spanned >30 years. Are we expected to buy all of that? Where would we even start?
I believe it because everyone who didn't like it here moves elsewhere and never stops complaining about it. #newJersey
We had a doozy of a lightning storm around 2am and it was like nothing I'd ever seen before, with strike after strike after strike for at least 10 minutes.
This visualization shows what that cluster looks like now after moving farther east off the coast, and good grief—that's a lot of lightning.
Said governor apparently claims to be #environment friendly and yet can’t seem to grasp the notion that cars in the densest urban locale in the country might not be a good idea
