7. Excuse me but I live in New Jersey.

 

I live on the Gold Coast and even in my area it has become increasingly hard for working people to afford. It was becoming more difficult and expensive for families to go to the beaches. I personally prefer state parks but I would be furious if access was cut off for me to the parks. Christie has actually been trying to privatize parks in NJ.

The Jersey Shore has for years had derogatory terms like Bennies and Shoobies for people who would visit during the summer. You like the dough they bring but hate the people. I will agree that many who purchased the homes in the last few years were people pretending to be wealthy and fleeing the diversity of the cities.

You would rather brave hurricanes and get flooded or wiped out rather than live next door to black and brown people. Well you got your wish so pull yourself up by your bootstraps. Stop begging for federal money. You act like you are entitled to it or something.
