Newark Political Buzz Examiner
New Jersey Political Buzz Index Late 2013

This is a continuation of the index begun as New Jersey Political Buzz Index 2012 and continuing with New Jersey Political Buzz Index Early 2013, continuing to cover those articles or sections of articles originally published at The Examiner in the latter half of 2013, now relocated here.

Mr. Young has a Juris Doctore from Widener University School of Law, and as a voter is an independent from a family of independents, tending moderately conservative but with some stronger sympathies in both directions on particular issues.

Earlier articles on legal topics from are indexed here, including analysis of the ten Internet regulations proposed by C-Net some years back.

Future articles will cover half a year at a time; articles will be placed in categories rather than listed chronologically, but since some subjects were covered over several years the reader will want to locate the other index pages.

Subjects addressed in the first half of 2013 included:

Senatorial 2013

Coverage of the 2013 special Senate election began at the end of the first half of the year, and continued in detail through the fall.

With the election behind us, there is not much more to tell.

Back to top of page.

Gubernatorial 2013

Coverage of the gubernatorial election in 2013 began in the first half of the year, and concluded in the second half.

With the election behind us, this subject is closed--but there will eventually be another election.

Church and State

See also Marriage Law Articles, Freedom of Expression, Health Care, Discrimination.

Again, my biases in this area might be impugned, but it is sometimes necessary to address the arguments advanced by some in the name of freedom from religion.  Some are no doubt well-meaning, but still misunderstand the sense of the First Amendment.  There were previous articles in this series listed in the early 2013 index, and additional articles to be listed in the 2014 indices still ahead.

It is a topic that arises occasionally, and certainly will be revisited.

Marriage Law Articles

See also Church and State, Freedom of Expression, Discrimination.

The Examiner editorial staff requested that political columnists address the issues surrounding the homosexual marriage debate.  This series began in 2012 and continued through early 2013 and on through 2014.

  1. Homosexual marriage:  Lies, appeared 7/30/13:  discusses the writings of one proponent of homosexual marriage who a few months ago was saying that there was no logic in the slippery slope argument who now is admitting that he, and those on his side, have always known it to be true but lied to get their way.
  2. Homosexual marriage:  Governor Christie's concession, appeared 10/29/13:  considers the impact of Governor Christie's decision to withdraw the appeal and allow court-ordered homosexual marriages to proceed in the state.
This has been a hot topic; please be certain to read the first article, and to make all responses civil and amicable for purposes of discussion.

From time to time something will be written which does not fit conveniently into a category, so this "miscellaneous" section was added early in 2013.  One article from this section is there, and the remainder are here.

There have been no other "miscellaneous" articles through the end of 2014.

Privacy Issues
See also Search and Seizure.

The Supreme Court in the latter half of the twentieth century decided that several of the rights protected in the amendments to the United States Constitution implied a "right to privacy".  While some of the consequences of this are their own issues, sometimes a matter appears which is simply about the right of a person to be left alone.

New Jersey Issue Articles

See also Gubernatorial, Senatorial, Presidential, Miscellany.

We began this category in 2012 with a look at bond issues on the ballot; a couple more articles appeared this year, one in the spring and one in the fall, covering the Honorable Vincent A. "Vince August" Sacari case.

Back to top of page.

Coalition Government Articles

See also Presidential, Election 2014.

We published quite a few articles in 2012 about how coalition government works in America, and another late in 2013.  There are more ahead, but not until the beginning of 2015.

  1. Polarization, appeared 12/17/13:  considers the problems in America today, with the tensions between the extremists on both sides and the weakness of the middle ground.
If there are questions, we'll add more to this section.

That is the list of all articles published during our first full calendar year as Political Buzz Examiner; additional indices will cover the subsequent years.
