Bear Hunt? Humans take over everything

8/4/2018
More
Jim tells us he doesn't much like the idea of New Jersey's bear hunt, meant to control overpopulation in such a densely human-populated state. But, Jim says, "I also don't like the idea of the possibility of bears carrying children off, which has happened at least once across the New York state border." So what to do?

How you know that parking ticket is a scam

7/27/2018
More
There aren't many offenses in New Jersey that don't expire under a statute of limitations. Murder and parking tickets are among them. You'd think the point of the judicial system would be to meter out justice. But Jim Gearhart says municipal courts are nothing but a cash grab — and he'd got the stories to back it up.

I love life too much to ever support abortion

7/19/2018
More
When Jim Gearhart last week — reacting to the news President Donald Trump would be picking another Supreme Court Justice — said America needs to get over its "national pastime of killing infants" ... you responded. "How about we quit confusing an unthinking collection of cells with a 'baby?' Chad Weaver asked on the New Jersey 101.5 Facebook page. It was one of nearly 90 comments that came in. "At least a quarter of pregnancies are aborted naturally," Sarah Solomon Ed Kimock Jr. said,...

'This national pastime of killing infants is absurd'

7/12/2018
More
When Jim Gearhart woke up Tuesday, the first story he saw was about President Donald Trump nominating Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. And with it, he saw announcements from women associated with the Women's March, saying the nomination "is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States," Jim says. "What? ... She's probably considering colleagues who are going to have apoplectic fits," Jim says. Stripping a woman's...

Humanity in Healthcare? Lots of luck with the medical system

7/6/2018
More
Jim Gearhart has what he calls "an observation amounting to a conviction." Perhaps it's one you've experienced yourself: "The goal of the healthcare people is to separate suffering people from their money." You don't just got to see a doctor. You see a doctor who's part of a systems. And that system is part of a larger system. And that larger system is part of a corporation. "And when the corporation takes over, humanity goes out the window, because it's all profit and money — and the...

Another shameless cash grab: 5 cents for every plastic bag

6/28/2018
More
Jim Gearhart feels a little guilty. He's as bad as anyone else about using disposable plastic bags when he goes grocery shopping. "I sometimes feel ashamed of myself for getting all these plastic bags." Yet Jim says the new plastic bag tax in New Jersey being won't help the environment as the government claims, but will raise money for unrelated government sectors. "How do I know that? Well because none of this money is dedicated to anything that has anything to do with the environment...

NJ Art show shooting: What more gun control do you want?

6/21/2018
More
We weren't hours past a deadly shooting in Trenton, New Jersey at an art show when New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and other legislative leaders came out with public statements calling for more strict federal gun control. But Jim Gearhart asks: What more gun control do you want, really? What could possibly make a difference when our culture is so sick?

Why Murphy's new gun laws won't change a single thing

6/14/2018
More
Gov. Phil Murphy signed six new gun control laws this week, a major step toward fulfilling one of his most significant campaign promises. And they won't do a single thing to prevent violence, Jim Gearhart says. Not when our culture is the real problem.

Living in the elitist, progressive bubble

6/7/2018

It's not that progressive politicians like Gov. Phil Murphy are out to do harm, Jim Gearhart says. But he says New Jersey's new governor, eager to raise several taxes, just can't relate to the struggles of everyday residents.

New Jersey deadly bus crash — What was he thinking?

5/24/2018
More
It's a horrific story. And it has both Jim Gearhart and Bob Williams aghast. Two people — a fifth-grader and a teacher — are dead after a Paramus school bus was struck by a dump truck on Route 80 in Mount Olive. DOT officials who've seen video footage say the bus quickly crossed three lanes, apparently to make an illegal U-turn. Jim and Bob recount what we know so far.

Is the Earth trying to kill us? I don't blame it

5/17/2018
More
There's a school of thought that the Earth, Gaia is an organism unto itself — with its own goals, its own personality and its own lifeforce. And if so, it seems to be actively treating us as a malignant infection, Jim says. Everyone knows about the devastation in Hawaii. Jim's worried about what happens when Pennsylvania becomes beachfront property. The Jim Gearhart Show is back every Thursday. More at http:://nj1015.com/Jim

"Comrade" Murphy's tax plan is leading to NJ Stockholm Syndrome

Jim Gearhart is reminded of the story of Tarot the dog after hearing this week of the "vicious" bulldog, Tank. He also dives into the stockholme syndrome that is keeping New Jerseyans in the state despite Governor Murphy best efforts.

News stories that make us go 'Duh!'

Bob Williams has been practicing his, because this week, Jim Gearhart has a whole bevy of stories that make us go "Duh!" — and Bob and Jim wanted to make sure it was done right. Are you really surprised doctors who take meals from pharma companies prescribe their drugs more? Or that a bunch of the legislators grilling Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg have tons of Facebook stock? "Duh!!!!"

Millennials think the earth is flat — teacher unions to blame?

4/12/2018
More
Former American Federation of Teachers president Al Shanker once infamously said: “When school children start paying union dues, that's when I'll start representing the interests of school children.” It sure seems to Jim Gearhart teachers are looking out for themselves more than children — and perhaps that's why, Jim says, as the world's become more complex and more intricate, young people are graduating from our schools less equiped to face it.

Worried about guns? It's the bombs that really scare me

4/5/2018
More
Jim Gearhart agrees — access to weapons is a problem. Not everyone needs an assault rifle, he says. But let's not pretend other guns can't do damage, too. In any case, Jim says — it's not our core problem, or our only one. The biggies? Our "culture of violence ... and the ease of getting the materials to carry out violence." More than what a gunman might do, Jim's worried any nut with an Internet connection can find bomb-making instructions online and get the materials without much...

Coming to grips with the two sides of Bill Cosby

Jim Gearhart remembers Bill Cosby's first album — and discovering a new, exciting, genius comic. And that's why it's so hard for him to make sense of the horrible acts that could send Cosby to jail for the rest of his life.

Guns may kill people — but banning them won't help

Jim control isn't a gun enthusiast. He hasn't hunted in ages, and he gave away his last gun years ago. He doesn't think everyone needs an assault weapon. But he's convinced — gun control alone won't nearly stop our gun violence problem. Maybe, he says, if culture was less enamored with violent death, we might get somewhere.
