    NJ Robo deer busts poachers

    My thought and hope was that the reporter left it out or wasnt aware. This deserves a 10 year license ban at the minimum if not lifetime. These guys are also on their 40's and 60's they knew exactly what they were doing and have done it before. As my grandfather used to say "nobody gets caught the first time"
  3. The article link is below. I've seen videos of CO's using this out west to bust poachers (and the videos are pretty funny). I never heard of them doing it in NJ before, but I'm glad they started. https://www.nj.com/south/2019/02/nj-robo-deer-decoy-bags-illegal-hunters-like-poachers-in-headlights.html

    Bet ya it would have walked If....

    For sure, if he didnt have intentions of stealing it he wouldnt have touched it. I smiled and give a thumbs up when I see them. If someone is walking up to it and pawing it, theyre trying to figure out how to get it off the tree. Could he return with tools? sure, but many thieves are just opportunists. The cable definitely ups your chances of your stuff not walking away

    $15 Minimum Wage

    I said it earlier and I just want to repeat it again because I like hearing myself talk....BUSINESSES WILL CLOSE AND LEAVE NJ, COMPANIES WILL SHIFT TO AUTOMATION AND THE NJ UNEMPLOYMENT RATE WILL SOAR! you dont like "picking up the slack of your local business" wait til the unemployment rate is well into double digits. The Democrats will have their hands buried so far up our assholes and in our pockets you'll cough out their fingernails

    $15 Minimum Wage

    You make a very good point. I'm just so cynical when it comes to government that I don't believe this will provide us any relief that is being sold to us. They will still tax us the same and more, and say they now need that money for something else. This state is going to hell in a handbasket and this bucktoothed @sshole is speeding up the process. I have never disliked a politician more than him

    He does a great job, and his specialties are awesome. Clean, vacuum sealed in a tray, and labeled

    Guys I'll just say one last thing here. If over the next 5 years we don't see businesses close, businesses leave NJ, prices of everything go up, and the NJ unemployment rate rise, I will eat my hat. All of those things WILL happen.

    $15 Minimum Wage

    This is my point. As a business owner, it feels like you're just getting bullied by the govt. Why does the entire burden of this fall on the businesses? Why can't it be something like Ok, you have to pay higher wages over here, but we'll give you a break on this end of things. There is no balance struck, just heavy handed, iron fisted mandates.

    Not only this, but let's say "Mary" who used to make $10 an hour and spent 300 on groceries every week will now earn 15 an hour but will be spending 500 on her weekly groceries, because the supermarket also raised their prices. Shes in the same exact predicament she was before. This isn't speculation here guys, look across the river at NY

    You could say that, and some would say you're 100% right. And that's exactly what's going to happen. Businesses are leaving and/or not coming here to begin with. Again, if people don't have jobs, then what good is the number that they could be earning?

    $15 Minimum Wage

    You miss the point entirely, and I don't know why you're fixated on this notion of people thinking that others shouldn't be able to make a living. I don't think that's the case. As far as myself, I work 90 hours a week to be able to live in Bergen county and haven't enjoyed a holiday with my family in years, so I make no apologies. Jobs will be lost due to this, Its happening already. So how do you think these people will earn a living wage if they are replaced by machines and kiosks? I'm not trying to be confrontational, I'm genuinely curious to hear your thoughts on this. Do you believe automation wont happen and people will lose jobs, and do you disagree that prices will go up across the board?

    Why is the government stepping in like the mafia "hey you, pay him"? And why doesn't the government ever put their money where there mouth is? Nobody can live on minimum wage here because we have one of the highest costs of living in the country. Im in bergen county, where you pay 15k a year in taxes on a house with 2br/2baths (except paramus). I only ever see the government playing big shot with other peoples money. This is going to close a lot of small businesses, just look at NY. The liberal answer is always to make the middle class pay for everyone else. How about eliminating state income tax, like they were supposed to do when they started the state lottery. I may be rambling now, but the point I am trying to make is why doesn't the government ever ante up their own money. This is all about a money grab, higher wages=higher payroll tax.
