Lord Jesus we ask that Phil recieve revelation of YOU as a loving God, Lord, merciful Saviour and powerful King. Expose, expose expose -- revive phil, renew phil or remove him.
    are you kidding me? there are people threatening and i'm not kidding su***de on unemployment sites. there are 75k NOT able to complain and factually Murphy went on radio and tv live 2x and lied at least that many times to the constituents that he 'wasn't aware of any issues'. Channel 7 ran it last night and pointed out his blatant lie and promises to help people. oh Yeah 75k? and He took a hush hush loan for his 'soccer team' .. a multi millionaire! SOCCER?! when this state if floundering. Let's not talk about the absolute debacle of a vaccine website that is good for nothing and the problems he's caused for those who NEED the vaccine? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!
    I've made a website to reduce climate change - www.buyrenewablesnow.com. I encourage you to find (or create) a website that will reduce climate change more. I've found few businesses in New Jersey that have done renewable energy projects. To find businesses throughout the country that have done renewable projects I've searched the websites of solar installers and used word searches, such as "new jersey solar fill in the blank." The blank might be filled in with different types of businesses: lodging, restaurant, dentist, veterinarian, etc. Please let me know if you're aware of businesses in NJ that have done renewable energy projects that aren't on the website at [email protected]. If your organization comes up with any, you'll get a thank you at the start of the NJ listings, if you want one.

Ron Kirk has not returned my call. What do you have planned, if the spot zoning appeal is recognized and zoning changes are rescinded? Reforestation will not protect Oakhurst and Joe Palaia Park from flooding, if the current spot zoning changes are rescinded. What is your plan? Jacqui
