  • @GovChristie 's education cuts also affect free and reduced cost lunches in schools: http://tinyurl.com/2u6ode7 #
  • So @GovChristie's cuts affect the nutritional needs of kids who need those meals the most. #
  • STILL think @GovChristie is in it for our kids? Lunch programs have nothing to do with unions or teachers, yet they are also impacted! #
  • @GovChristie What say you about the lunch program cuts? #
  • @GovChristie Hey – person quoted in article is from a FOOD BANK – so can you STILL argue you're not affecting FOOD BANKS? Who's callous NOW? #
  • @edovett Right back atcha Ed! #
  • The weekend has begun! Yeeeee haaaaa! #

  • Students in NJ: better than walkouts, show up at your local municipal school budget hearings! Flood them with people! #
  • That will send a strong message about how much you care in your own district. 200 kids at a budget hearing sends a VERY strong message. #
  • Adults criticial of kids protesting @GovChristie 's edu policies as being brainwashed by teachers….(cont'd) #
  • …did you vote down your school budget based on @GovChristie's advice to do so if teachers didn't take pay freeze? Consider the similarity! #
  • @irasocol See 2nd part of my tweet…. #
  • @emhnj I understand, but a lot of the parents complaining about the kid protests, are saying the kids are being sheep led by teachers… #
  • @emhnj …which is no different then many of those same parents voting against budget because Christie told them they should (being sheep). #
  • @emhnj Just sayin'. Yes, generalizing, but calling it as I see it. Maybe not you, but many are in the "cult of Christie". #
  • @emhnj Christie lets the voters fight his battle with the union. Don't forget the rhetoric he spouts as well. #
  • @GovChristie As far as kids' protests, I would like to see all the kids show up at town council meetings of voted down budgets. #
  • @GovChristie I think that would be a far more productive place for them to be – and be part of the budget process. #
  • @emhnj ARE the teachers letting the kids fight the battle. Some would say all the kids want is to get out of class. Which is it? #
  • @emhnj WHY would the teachers leave the battle to the kids? Seems pretty dumb to me. #
  • @emhnj I don't think they did at all. The kids were not asked by the teachers to protest, were they? #
  • @emhnj What does protecting kids have anything to do with kids protesting? #
  • @emhnj I see….thought you were going somewhere else with it. Yes, agree on that point. #
  • @emhnj I think though that if kids wants to be involved in the process – they should show up to town council school budget meetings. #

  • @SoJerCon That facebook group is all kids – you sure you wanna embarass yourself by propagating a group made by kids with only 22 members? #
  • @KageyWoman Agreed on Christie's tone, etc.. His refusal to budge on this issue will eventually backfire. #
  • @twiggyoh Ummm that's one town board of Ed, not the entire NJEA. One town's corruption does not equal whole state's. #
  • @twiggyoh Wasn't trying to argue anything about issues with you, merely to point out that your single post was inaccurate. #
  • @twiggyoh Your post was misleading, read like it was the NJEA head, not the Supt. of Toms River district. #
  • iPad sighting in the office! A crowd is gathering! #

  • @GovChristie Recent poll showed 65% of likely voters favored pay freezes, yet only 54% of budgets were defeated. That is hardly a mandate. #
  • @GovChristie Hardly a mandate from the people that they felt budgets should be defeated on that one issue alone. #
  • @Dyrnwyn Disagree on demonizing – have spoken with many parents who fault teachers. #
  • @Dyrnwyn @irasocol Union needs change, but gov is using wrong tactics. Reagan didn't crash planes during air traffic contr. crisis! #
  • @Dyrnwyn Air traf contr analogy not mine – @judis217 come up with that one! But I like it. #
  • @irasocol @Dyrnwyn Change happens gradually. Change never easy for people – why don't we have HC reform in a year? #
  • @irasocol @Dyrnwyn Because a multi-year plan is better for adjustment. @GovChristie needed a multi-year plan for edu reform to make it work. #
  • @pwfenton Awww… Loved seeing you over there on FB. Ah well! #
  • @GovChristie Long term – what can be done about NJEA – pressuring tactics don't seem to be working, do they? #
  • @GovChristie I learned a while ago – you often can't change other people/organizations, but you CAN change you react to them. #
  • @GovChristie So how can you change your REACTION to the NJEA? What OTHER PLAN do you have? #
  • @GovChristie Actually, yesterday's "drug mule" comment was rather derogatory (as was the "prayer" for your death – granted) #
  • @GovChristie How about we stop the name calling, stop the rhetoric and get down to finding other ways to work this out? #
  • @GovChristie Nastiness never gets anyone anywhere-Can you rise above the name calling and rhetoric to LEAD this state w/a workable solution? #
  • @KageyWoman What did @GovChristie do on camera to the NJ 101.5 host? #
  • @SoJerCon I took a look at that group – it was started by a bunch of teens. Look at the profiles of some of the members. #
  • @SoJerCon Look at the pics of the members – all kids. Who don't know better or understand the issues. Step back now, take a deep breath… #
  • @SoJerCon Don't be so reactionary on something till you investigate it. #

  • NJ folks: Plz take the time today to educate yourself b4 school voting. Go to your district website and look at the budget. #
  • Base your vote on whether it is fiscally responsible and educationally responsible, not on whether teachers took pay freeze. #
  • This is not a black & white issue, as @GovChristie would like it to be. Be responsible and be rational. #
  • @ctmommy Why do conservatives overreact? Prayer for Christie's death was a JOKE that circulated around internet for various people. #
  • @ctmommy And – by the way – that prayer joke? Obama's name used in it by conservatives. #
  • @ctmommy So let's stop the fighting, the rhetoric, the name calling, and get down to the business of running our schools and our state. #
  • The homework Christie determined was kids being used as "drug mules" for: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bluejersey/4538322216/ #
  • Does not ask how parents are voting, only whether they voted in the past, and if they are voting this year, and why this year is different. #
  • @ctmommy Long term solution needed – not short term rhetoric from Governor. "My way or the highway" attitude from gov…. #
  • @ctmommy …does nothing but create animosity and hatred…. #
  • @ctmommy And as Yoda said… "Hate leads to suffering" 😉 #
  • @GovChristie Can speak ill only of schools as the scapegoat. He made cuts to libraries, why hasn't he spoken ill of librarians? #
  • @GovChristie I'm waiting for you to speak ill of municipal employees, who also are faced with budget cuts. #
  • RT @judis217 When Reagan went after Air Traffic Controllers union, did he crash planes to make his point? That's what @GovChristie is doing. #
  • I'm so fired up today with this election. Will unwind tonight at PTA Family Fun Night at UNO. Yes, because I CARE about my kid's school! #
  • @GovChristie Since pay freeze plan doesn't seem to have worked, do you have another solution to our school system woes? #
  • @ctmommy Why the block? Too many libs keeping an eye on you? #
  • @GovChristie Re: Leading by example – is your example being disrespectful of others, or calling people names? #
  • @ColorBlindDJ "Drug mule" comment today most recent time. Shall I dig up more for you? in reply to ColorBlindDJ #
