Parsippany Democrats Gather for Summertime Party Building

The township's other political party meets for a picnic at a historic site.

Parsippany Democrats braved threateningly gray skies to come together for an anything but gloomy summer picnic Sunday afternoon at the historic Livingston-Benedict House on Old Parsippany Road. The annual event was organized by the township's Democratic Party.

While the sun did not make more than a cursory appearance during the event, no rain fell at all, so spirits at the picnic remained high.

The gathering, a laughter-filled potluck affair featuring burgers and dogs along with vegetarian and vegan fare, mostly was about fun and socializing. Conversations revolved around the Par-Troy East All-Stars, who are competing in the 2012 Little League World Series, township news, art appreciation and the history surrounding the Livingston-Benedict house. And some picnickers took the opportunity to have themselves photographed with a lifesize cardboard photo of President Obama.

But some business was transacted as well: Party Chair Michael Soriano introduced the eventgoers to two Democratic candidates for the Nov. 6 general election: 11th District House of Representatives hopeful John Arvanites and Jonathan Nelson, who is running in the special Town Council race. Volunteers also were recruited for political canvassing of neighborhoods in advance of the election.

In addition, Soriano announced that after the general election, the party will move forward with plans to form a Parsippany Democratic Club, which will serve as a social organization for township progressives.

Did you read this? Party Chair Michael "Soriano announced that after the general election, the party will move forward with plans to form a Parsippany Democratic Club, which will serve as a social organization for township progressives." "Progressives" are commonly known as communists. So is the Parsippany Democratic Club going to be the Parsippany Communist Party?

As a conservative’s conservative’s conservative… I just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here. Obama is for the 1% at the expense of the 99% as my good man/woman Mt. Tabor points out - therefore Mr. Soriano – presumably an Obama supporter is starting a “progressive” = “communist” (again thanks for the translation Mt) group to ….. support…. Socialism….. which, um – seeks to redistribute wealth. ….Ah, brilliant! Mt. Tabor has discovered the ultimate in corruption. You see – Democrats (aka “progressives” aka “communists”) are secretly supporting Obama because they are really a capitalist conspiracy to support an oligarchy of the 1%. Brilliant. I’m changing my registration to Dem right now. Well played Mr. Soriano! Well played. Thanks for pointing that out Corruption. Tip of the hat to you Sir (Ma’am).

I took it down. It was a humorous photo that on second thought I decided might inflame the horridness I seek to avoid.

Democrat/Progresive flunkies and lapdogs are too blind to understand Obama's plan. What has Obama done for the average American? I'll answer that........ZERO. What has Obama done for poor Black Americans? Again....ZERO. The rich are certainly getting richer under the reign of the Kenyan Wonderboy. http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/67046/robert-c-lieberman/why-the-rich-are-getting-richer

You are so right TC. In fact - when I tilt my head to the left - this graph shows deplorable job creation.... http://thepoliticalcarnival.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/bikini-graph-August-2012-private-sector-Via-Steve-Benen-at-the-Maddow-Blog.jpg And all that malarkey when he told Joe the plumber we need to "spread the wealth"... just a clever smokescreen - and it worked so well as every prominent conservative has kept up the ruse by incessantly calling him a Socialist (thank you congressional GOP!). And of course - everyone knows of the Kenyan plot of oligarchy that started with that rather light-skinned Kenyan... Reagan ..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chart_of_US_Top_1%25_Income_Share_%281913-2008%29.svg Sheer brilliance. Thank you sir! The country needs more sharp aware citizens like yourself!
