I have several causes, but would have to say my number one.....to stop giving draconian sentences to persons whom have NEVER HARMED ANOTHER IN THEIR ENTIRE LIFE. In NJ we have laws to keep the persons who have committed the most heinous crimes, to life. But in NJ we have a 3 strike law, whereas it has been used with less than a handful of persons. One in NJSP who had NEVER harmed another, and recognized by the courts, is right now serving LIFE with NO parole. This law is costing our tax payers millions of $$$.  And this law is filled with many grey areas. It is rarely used anymore, (nor has been used, with the exception of only a handful of cases) if at all. And why should we be paying millions of $$$ for a law that is not in use. It is like continuing to Water a dead plant.  It is time to rid of it. We are wasting money and time on a law that is basically dead. Time to rid of it too, and put the monies used for a dead issue for something that thrives. We in NJ have several other laws that can do the same as the 3 strike law, without having to add the financial burden to the taxpayers. It is time for a huge change! I vote both at the polls and with my wallet, and will not sit content. I can not just ignore this, knowing that there is one man (out of Aprox. 4) total that is serving under this law, for crimes whereas NO ONE WAS EVER PHYSICALLY harmed.  How can one be put away for LIFE WITH NO PAROLE. This is cruel and unusual punishment. This law needs to be disposed of, as it is not utilized. If we do not use something in our homes that keeps costing money, we rid of it. The same should apply with this law, that has basically been stuffed away in the judicial closet.

What/who changed my life and why My best friend Greg. He has shown me what true courage is, and that no matter how dim a situation looks, it can be changed if you have enough want and will. That if one door shuts, you MAKE a new door. I never knew just how corrupt the judicial system is, until I read his transcripts, in my possession. The things I read were just so wrong. They were against his civil right and I believe due to his mothers profession, (prostitution) and getting in trouble with the law all the time, that is why the put him away for good. His mother passed, and now the only one was him, now that he committed a crime. But he has danced with the Devil, and lived on Bad street USA, and still fighting a fight for his life. But sadly he is growing tired, and depressed. So, now that as long as I am alive, I can fight for him. He is such a pillar to the community. He talks to my daughter about drugs and alcohol, and she won't go near them, or anyone who does. She has been on the honor roll 3 years in a row, and will hopefully graduate with honors next year. And she has passed this information on to her friends, and they too, refrain from doing any substance. Not all, but many. And if he is making that kind of an impact on our children from within, I can not imagine how much of an impact have on the outside. He has a great way with words when it comes too kids, and getting through t them. I am honored to be in his life and his best friend for over 35 years.

    Several of my relatives live on or near the Jersey shore and still struggle with the funds and aftermath of the storm. Can't wait for Christie to be gone. Too bad we couldn't toss him out of here!

    Lost little Addie but adopted one from my vet that a couple saw get hit by a car.  Poor baby went into a seizure and then came out of it, they took it to my vet, he treated him had him for over a wk. and couldn't find anyone that would take him.  When we took Addie in and said good bye to that sweet girl, we were told about this little Chiweenie.  I named him Chance, because several were kind enough to give him a chance, and he's a little fighter!

    Teresa, I will be absent a few days. Later today there will be another little tail wagging at Rainbow Bridge.  I am having to put one of my little rescues down due to congestive heart failure.  Bless little Addie she's had a good 2 yrs of knowing love and being spoiled.  My sunshine will be dim for a spell.  Love, Marcia
