    Tell me about it. We are loosing farm land (within 20 minute drive of the Delaware River) by the gallons every day. And rude people, can't drive right, can't speak good, don't even know Pennsylvania Dutch, our Home Depot has to hang special signs up with Joisey-isms.

    To defend NJ we do drive right because we have to pass all the Pennsyltucky drivers who can't move out of the left lane.

    Just kidding but try not to lump us into one category. I do carry a gun, speak well, try to keep good Karma, and shop at Lowe's. I would love to get out of NJ also and plan on it once I am free from the pension lock. PA is not my choice for getting out - I'm leaning more towards Colorado/Wyoming.

    Maybe they are moving to Illinois to escape the harsh NJ gun laws !

    The extremely high property taxes are driving many people out of NJ. My sister lived for a while in the Easton, PA/Phillipsburg, NJ area and saw a lot of people who moved to the PA side of the Delaware to escape the high cost of living in the Peoples Republik of New Jersey.

    There's a reason they only charge those LEAVING NJ on the bridges.

    Ram Rod, that wasn't nice! Maybe the coast of California, but please not inland!

    I have been to PRNJ. It was in the early 90's I think. I'll never go back.

    Besides, I would never even consider living in a state that denies me my right to defend my life and the lives of my family. Never live in such a state and never give money through patronage to a business that does the same.

    Add to the fact that they can cash out a crappy house in NJ and buy into a waaaay nicer house in PA. Everyone is moving into higher socio-economic neighborhoods, but their attitudes and behaviors are still in the Plainfield, NJ area.

    Then there are all the NYC'ers moving in. Holy moly. I don't care about the yankees and how the yankees did.

    When I see somebody driving like a dimwit, I either see big jersey hair or a nyc ballcap.

    You know, New Jersey is the only state to have two governors in a row that have been rear-ended.

    That is very funny. I am surprised I never heard it before.

    My entire family had an exodus out of that state back in 1991, and we haven't looked back.
