Facts don’t lie…

There seems to be quite an uproar in New Jersey about the recent allocation of funds by the Department of Homeland Security. The ultra-left media around here is perverting the news, as usual, by making it seem that New Jersey has had it’s funding slashed. Not quite the case, as you can see below:

Overall Allocations for Fiscal Years 2003, 2004 and 2005.

New Jersey:
2003: $51,893,000.000
2004: $55,424,000.000 (+3,531,000.000)
2005: $60,811,154.000 (+5,387,154.000)
Net increase in overall funding since 2003: +$8.918,254.000

The distribution of this funding has been revised, per DHS mandate, slashing the funding from the cities of Newark and Jersey City, two cities rife with corruption and fiscal mismanagement and reallocated funding to more programs on the local level. This redistribution of local level funding will help to increase the operating budgets of emergency response teams and citizen groups statewide.

As far as the misinformation about NJ getting the short end of the stick and how lowly North Dakota was given a whopping increase in funding, I offer this:

North Dakota:
2003: $18,183,000.000
2004: $19,421,000.000 (+1,238,000.000)
2005: $14,376,200.000 (-$5,044,800.000)
Net decrease in overall funding since 2003: -$3,806,800.000

I’m not quite sure I like the idea of the state with the one of the largest unprotected borders with Canada having their funding slashed, especially with Canada’s "open arms" policy when it comes to allowing any terrorist scum to set up shop with impunity.

So, that’s all I have to say about that. You can find out more about how your tax dollars are being spent to keep your asses all safe and snug by visiting the Department of Homeland Security on-line.
