An Independence Day Message From daTruthSquad

"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one." This was said by Thomas Paine, a great Patriot and who some might call "an anonymous bomb-thrower" of his day.

Due to da daTruthSquad’s close proximity to Monmouth Battlefield, it is important that we remember the brave souls who gave of themselves in opressive heat, battle weary individuals who, because of their great sacrifice allow us to live free.

This weekend we will be having BBQ’s, going swimming, meeting friends, enjoying family, and if we can afford da gas, traveling. Da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died so we can do these things.

We’ll be watching tennis, or even playing some. We’ll be watching baseball, or even going to a game. Da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died so we can do these things.

We’ll enjoy da company of children & grandchildren. Da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died so we can do these things.

We’ll be watching fireworks light da sky and be in awe of what we see. Da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died so we can do these things.

Their brave & noble sacrifices give us these opportunities.

It is unfortunate that there are some in our midst that seem to forget what these brave souls stood for – and what they did not stand for.

They did not stand for their town to grow without a proper plan to balance da burden on homeowners with those in da business world. Without a solid foundation of ratables, homeowners face da burden of paying for da whims of da politicians and their “panacea” of desires.

They did not stand for frivolous lawsuits, especially those that challenge da right of free speech and liberty. Last year, a gang of politicians decided to have their henchmen legal “dream team” of lawyers challenge da First Amendment of da Constitution of da United States, and, it continues to drain town tax dollars still! Much like those who did not favor “No taxation without representation,” they continue to use YOUR money to fund their political vendetta.

Da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died not so these politicians could erase liberty and free speech from our Constitution. Some politicians have forgotten what these brave souls gave their lives for.

DaTruthSquad, and da TruthTellers, have not forgotten. Fortunately, some brave patriots like those from da Electronic Frontier Foundation know what liberty and justice is all about. They understand what da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died for.

Imagine, for just a moment if you did not have freedom of speech. You could face scorn, prison, or even death just because you did not agree with those in power – whether they be in Washington, DC, Trenton, or at the corner of Route 522 & Taylors Mill Road. Life is like that everyday in some countries in Africa and da Middle East and Asia. During Saddam’s reign of terror in Iraq, if you disagreed with him he tortured or killed your family.

Now, imagine da Manalapan Legal Dream Team was successful. Anonymity would be taken away. You could not disagree with politicians without placing yourself or members of your family in harm’s way. Liberty would be removed, and da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth would have given their lives for nothing.

Da precedent-setting legal case that received worldwide attention was not just a victory for daTruthSquad. It was in fact a victory for anyone who reads this blog or others like it. It was a victory for Benjamin Frankin, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton, da bloggers of da day. It was a victory for anonymous writers around da world. It was a victory for anyone who sees an injustice and lets others know what is wrong in their midst.

It was also a big victory for da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth who died so we can do these things.


DaTruthSquad, for one, will be found on Monmouth Battlefield this weekend. DaTruthSquad will also be paying a visit to da Old Tennent Cemetery. DaTruthSquad will also be saying a prayer for da men & women in our armed services fighting & risking their lives in places like Iraq & Afghanistan for da cause of liberty so we can live in freedom.

DaTruthSquad can only hope that you do da same, and continue to speak out against what you feel is wrong & stand up to those who oppress.

Da souls that perished during da Battle of Monmouth died so we can do these things.

And that’s da truth!

Yes, many brave and heroic people died to give us the freedoms that we often take for granted. Unfortunately those freedoms are sometimes taken to extremes:

* Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity maligning township officials based on unfounded rumors and allegations;

* Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity calling township officials murderers, supporters of apartheid, incompetants, and intollerant people;

* Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity making unfounded allegations of coverups to raise fears that a township football field is contaminated and a new synthetic turf field will contaminate the environment;

* Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity usurping the name of an innocent teenage who tragically lost her life, and used that name to somehow try to make a former township attorney also look like a victim, despite that former officials numerous unsuccessful attempts to convince a judge that the townships lawsuit against him is without merit;

* Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity acting like sore losers every time their candidate either loses an election or isn't given the party nod to be the formal candidate;

* Cowards hiding behind a shred of anonymity that spread rumors and falsehoods that the township doesn't pay its bills, before making a simple phone call to get Da Truth that Verizon misspoke;

* Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity claiming that the town must approve the MegaMall so taxes will be lowered, without regard to the direct costs of Police, Fire and Ambulence service for the monstrocity; without regard to the fact that the location fails traffic studies while vacant; without regard for the increased COAH obligations that the developed property will create; and without regard for the builder continually trying to change the zoning to allow residential housing that the township doesn't want and the local roads can't support.

Yes, many brave and heroic people died to give us the freedoms that we often take for granted. A few in town need to recognize that just because they have the freedom to malign others, they shouldn't do so.

I agree with Da Truth Squad that each of us needs to continue to speak out against what you feel is wrong & stand up to those who oppress. On the other hand, I disagree with the way that Da Truth Squad continually attacks people, esp. when those attacks are not based on Da Facts, and often are based on outright lies.

I think what da truth squad wrote is what freedom of speech is all about.

I went back and read the blog about the "unpaid Verizon bill". The squad quoted what was already written in a newspaper. Parroting an established newspaper isn't wrong, and what I think is wrong is the newspaper never printed a retraction.

Otherwise, it's healthy to speak out against what you don't like or don't believe. That's why those brave soldiers gave their lives on Monmouth Battlefield, and the squad is right, we should remember them all.

Here's what I think about this blog.

While I don't always agree with what Datruth squad writes and especially what some people comment here, whenever someone writes something bad about Da Truth, it's never deleted. If I were the blogger, I'd certainly delete the second comment. But I'm sure it won't happen because that's what freedom of speech is all about.

And when someone wrote something bad about Mayor Roth, the words that were bad were taken out by the blog administrator.

It shows we can have disagreements, but there are lines not to cross. And this blog gives me more information about Manalapan that the local newspaper does, so keep up the good work.

The two comments before the last are as welcome as they are unexpected here. Like finding a diamond in a dung heap.

Changing Times Too

Da Truth Squad has given us all a voice, without fear of retribution form the Gang of 3 and their handlers.

This blogsite has more truth written on it than the spin the Gang of 3 want us all to believe. The poster who wrote we are cowards for posting here, they themself posted annonymously. Kinda like calling the kettle black? Eh? Do not criticize if you will not post your own name.
This site has absolutely affected the Gang of 3 who gave carte blanche to their attorney to spend taxpayers money to file suit to expose the identity of Da Truth Squad. A case that they lost in court and so did the Manalapan taxpayers who paid for it.

For that anonymous author and others, do you believe everything you hear as being the gospel truth from those 3 elected officials?. I don't. They are masters of omission, they tell you just enough but never the whole truth. As they say the Truth will set you Free and it will. It will also expose the Gang of 3.

To those brave men and woman who have given the ultimate sacrifice we honor you on this upcoming Independence Day and everyday for the Freedom your sacrifice has given us. For the men and woman serving today in our military, thank you for the daily sacrifices and dangers you face to keep "we the people" of these United States safe. God Bless You and God Bless America.

God bless all of the brave men and women in our armed forces. Bless those who gave their lives so we can live in the United States with the freedoms we enjoy.

And God bless Datruthsquad. Whoever you may be or how many of you there may be, you allow freedom of speech to flourish and you stood up to the bullies who tried to take that away from everyone who blogs here. Thanks to you I don't have to use my name. I can be anonymous, just like those who fought the Revolutionary War and shaped this nation.

Sincerely, anonymous.

The first comment here says it all.

"Cowards hiding behind a shroud of anonymity"

How does that person sign it?

Our founding fathers wrote most of the "Federalist papers" anonymously. Fear of retribution is the reason. They are considered Patriots. All of you that hate the anonymous postings of US citizens must also hate the US constitution. The Supreme Court ruled that anonymous writing is protected speech.

The Manalapan township committee that wants retribution acts like communist dictator. The judge in the case Manalapan vs. Moskovitz ruled the attack against daTruthSquad was a violation and that attack was dismissed.

Suck on that you commie bastards!

McEnry,

You ever serve in the military or are all your covert actions here on this blog site?

Maybe there should be no more anonymity on these blogs?

Maybe there should be no more blogs?

I propose in Manalapan we do away with all of this, and we just believe every word as gospel and the truth that comes from the mouths of people like Roth and Lucas and Klauber and career politicians like them.

I also propose we rename Manalapan to be mow called "North Korea."

Will Andy Boy move that?

Will Ricky second that?

And I wrote this anonymously because brave people died on Monmouth Battlefield so I'd have the right to be anonymous.

To "Even hypocrites have the right to be anonymous said...":

The jerks who complain about anonymity and call others cowards while refusing to sign their own names are too ridiculous and dense even to see their inane self-parody.
