State legislature doesn't count, Conan.  Besides, what's wrong with being gay?  Why so much homophobia?
Thats what I was gonna ask you. But I didnt want to get into any debate if you disliked gays.

I think it's clear from this conversation that you're the only one who has said something homophobic.
No i didnt! I support gay rights.

Of course it's all in jest, no one could seriously doubt the perfection that is New Jersey. Wink  And Bergen County is far from the best in the state.  I reccomend Morris.  Our entire state is a metropolitan area.  Our crapholes give us character.  Nowhere on earth will you find something as indescribable as Camden.  We like to consider our politicians...a variety.
I stay away from Camden, haha. That's too bad. Bergen County is mixed. Some of the most affluent towns are there including Saddle River and Alpine. Saddle River is where Nixon retired to. I want to move to Bergen, its way better then Sussex and much more convenient.

Camden isn't as scary as it seems.  You just can't stop your car within the city.  I really hate to toot my own horn, but the Somerset Hills (Bernardsville, Bedminster, Bernards Twp., Far Hills, and Peapack-Gladstone) are far superior to all else.  We are arguably the most affluent grouping of towns in the country.  And we're VERY conveniently located in relation to the city and Pennsylvania.
Saddle River, Upper Saddle River, Alpine, HoHoKus, Franklin Lakes, and Ridgewood could take them anyday! And we have the better city, NYC!

Yea we beat you!

I'm from Central Islip.

Yeah, the Haptons pretty much are LI's trump card.  Oh, and Fire Island, until it disappears under the waves.
Fire Islands awesome. You ever see the TWA crash memorial?

Spealing about some very nice areas, check out the noth shore of Nassau County

Pssh...NEVER!  And NYC is "the city".  That's the term we use around here, I assumed you did, too.  Upper Saddle River is VERY nice though.
I assumed because of those towns' proximity to Philadelphia that that was what you meant. But yes I do use "the city" when talking about NYC.

Excuse my geographical knowledge. HAHA I thought those were near Princeton and closer to Philly if that is still even closer? HA

(All of this New Jersey-flogging is in good fun.  I'm sure it's a very nice state, and I would definiely not mind a place like Bergen County. Tongue)

We only have Seattle?  We have a metropolitan area that stretches from north of Seattle down to south of Tacoma.  Several million people, and none of the crapholes New Jersey has.

Gay people plague your government. At least Washington has 100% heterosexual politicians. Except for Dino Rossi of course.

Looks like your New Jersey corruption is getting to your brain!  I never made that post, as you can clearly see by looking back at the page.  What a shame, New Jersey has destroyed another promising young life with its corruption!!!

Well, considering the relative success of this thread in relation to others in this section of the forum, I think it's safe to say New Jersey's incredible allure is yet another distinguished attribute to add to the exceedingly long list of positives.
Most definately. Oh and I am not Italian but I know people who very well could have "connections". (Who am I kidding, I am almost certain)

Me neither, but I know quite a few people with connections, so we're good. Tongue

Grin
We even have a "New Jersey Italian American Heritage Commission".

I remember when I first traveled to the Northeast I was shocked at how dark-haired and swarthy everyone was.  Growing up in Missouri I only saw the blonde hair and pink cheeks of my fellows.. lot of German blood back there.
