23rd Turns Right, and right again and again.

Is the 23rd the ONLY district left in NJ where the Right wants to alight?

First, Warren County freeholder John DiMaio [pro-life, pro-gun, anti-climate change, etc] gets the convention nod from Hunterdon/Warren to replace Marcia Karrow in the Assembly.

Then, Hunterdon Freeholder Erik Peterson [also pro-life, pro-gun, anti-climate change, etc] gets the county line in Warren and Hunterdon for the Assembly race.

And now, to complicate things even more---the Chief of Staff of Assemblyman Mike Doherty [ even more so pro-life, pro-gun, anti-climate change, etc]---Ed Smith has decided to jump in to the race. His stand on the key right wing issues---you guessed it----pro-life, pro-gun, anti-climate change, etc.

Does he believe in evolution, gravity, magnetism? Who knows.

So, just how does the average Republican voter choose between the right-wing guys running? Again, who knows. One is more right wing than the next.

Former Senator Lance was a reasonable Republican---labeled himself an Eisenhower Republican. And for a while Ms. Karrow was reasonable, too. But Doherty is about as anti-progressive as you can get, and so are the three heirs to the throne.

So, you can bet the words/phrases you'll hear most often in the coming primary will be "Reagen", "Pro-life", "I never raised taxes" and "Corzine is a %$#!"

I have serious doubts about how much mankind is contributing to 'global warming' (oops it is cold out so better call it 'climate change' until the summer).

But before the knee-jerk reaction kicks in and you all decide to label me a luddite I would like to say I might know a thing or two about science.

I do believe macro evolution is the best theory (or set of theories) that explains the fossil record. Micro-evolution is simply a fact.

I also am probably one of the few readers here who do daily solar observation (weather permitting) with a hydrogen alpha telescope at 6562.8 angstroms.

Having doubts about a new scientific theory such as global warming is a HEALTHY thing for science.

Especially when NOAA scientists come out and say that globe hasn't warmed in over 8 years even though CO2 output has increased. No one knows why... yet the science is 'done'. Obviously not.
