Dude I lived in Newark New Jersey from 1995 until 2001. Cory Booker was the mayor during those 6 years and I have never seen such an out-of-control crack problem on every corner for the entire expense of the gigantic City which has over 250,000 people. Newark New Jersey man let me tell you Brick City that is a tough place to live in that is where I got tough. You want to talk about gangs. You want to talk about daily and nightly shootings. I heard bullets fly over 10 times during the six and a half or 7 years that I live there just within say 50 or a hundred from my apartment block. The doorway to my apartment block regular crack dealers and hookers hanging out at all hours saying hey cracker hey cracker what are you doing in my hood? I'm talking about aggressive stuff. I'm talking about high tension stuff. I'm talking about watching out of the corner of your eye at all times coming and going and walking at night back and forth from the bus stations in the train stations in Newark New Jersey. @Beanz nobody can imagine those 6 years I lived there. there's nothing like that anywhere on earth except maybe in the Bronx and in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn and in the Communipaw section of Jersey City which I currently work in. I had daily if not hourly heated encounters with the Nation of Islam as well as with the Black Israelites, I had very dear friends black American as well as Haitian as well as West African and I was engaged to a Haitian girl for over 2 years. Dudes used to shout out to me about Bronx Tale in about five o. Here come the 5-0 yo here come the Five O. The very close girl friend I had got hooked on Brown heroin and I was driving her sometimes to the Dealer's house across town and she would snort the brown heroin in the front seat of my car. I also took her to methadone several times.
@Gandalf I meant Shannon Briggs in East Orange one time when he was sleeping in the park when he was homeless at Eagle Rock in Orange New Jersey about a block from where two ton Tony galento is buried who has the square named after him called Tony galento Plaza at the corner of Main Street and Scotland Road in Orange New Jersey. Any f***** wants to look it up be my guest
I learned more in those seven years that I did in all four years of my bachelor's degree at Rutgers College and in all 2 years of my Master's Degree at Thunderbird in Glendale Arizona
Lisle I really digress here as I am sipping Vecchio Amaro Del Capo. Lyle you should really try this liquor from Calabria Italy. I know part of this post belongs in the alcohol starters thread
Cory Booker is the biggest scumbag you will ever meet. I was at several speeches he gave at the corner of Broad and Branford Avenues as well as down on Mulberry Street near Penn Station and downtown Newark and at Broad and Market Streets. Under his watch the city of Newark descended below the level of hell. Not only was there a brown heroin epidemic but crack was out of control.
Now this douchebag wants to run for president of the United States? Lyle I started a thread about 2 months ago saying that Kamala Harris is going to be his running mate.
Imagine that ticket bro.
Booker and Harris 2020
Can I get the barf bag now Lyle?
