Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you all on this third day of June, 2011, coming to you LIVE from the tiny, tiny town of Osterville, a seaside village if you please, that sits only a mere football toss from the late, great President Kennedy’s old house in Hyannis Port, the next town over from Osterville, here on the southern shores of Cape Cod proper, with Nantucket off to the south/southeast by about 30 miles and the Vineyard about ten miles south/southwest of Dowses Beach, as seen above, as we look at one of the modes of transportation used in the most recent film to be filmed here, Richard Dreyfus’ “Lightkeepers”. Adam Sandler will be filming in Osterville soon as well, when he begins the filming of his newest movie, “I hate my Dad”, I think that what it’s called, in July, where he will take in presumably Osterville, Hyannis Port and Boston. Adam is staying in Osterville, and I know where, but will not reveal that information, as I would not want to make him angry… It should be fun. On a lighter note today, I thought I would speak of the latest Tweet scandal regarding sex and men behaving badly with electronic devices, a scandal that unfortunately involves one of the best congressmen in the country today, Mr. Anthony Weiner, a democrat out of New York. Apparently there has been a big fuss over an “alleged” picture he “tweeted” to a 21 year old girl whom he says he does not know, and the whole thing has been blown way out of proportion, especially if one looks at the records of one recently resigned Senator from Nevada, John Ensign, for example, whom I believe, is part of the republican party, or at least he was. On “The Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell”, airing every week night at 8 and 11 p.m., EDT, only on MSNBC, Lawrence took on the whole insane Weinergate story in his nightly “Tonight’s Rewrite” segment, where, on last night’s show, he paraded out our old buddy from FOX NEWS, Bill O’Reilly, who we have not heard from since his famous “interview” with the President before the Superbowl. In 2004, Bill O’Reilly had a scandal of his own involving soap on a rope or a luffa of some kind, as the whole sex scandal was settled out of court for millions of dollars, so I have to give O’Reilly some credit here, for I would not have the courage to go on national television and discuss the morality of a fairly benign incident such as the Tweet allegedly from Weiner, when I had a ’soap on a rope’ in my closet to try and hide. Further, I have to thank Mr. O’Donnell for bringing forth another hypocrite from the republican party, an exercise that has become redundant and a continuing JOKE, one we never get tired of, as we take a good look at Governor Chris Christie from the great state of New Jersey–a man who needs no introduction, as he has been talking out of both sides of his mouth for years now, being a former New Jersey state Attorney of some kind and all–giving us all great views of the hypocrisy that IS the republican party, a symbol you would have a hard time missing, for Christie is HUGE, and as the tubby governor carries around his barely 40 percent approval rating, let us take a look at his giant body ‘jumping’ in and out of that 12 million dollar state police helicopter one more time…yeah, that’s the stuff. A helicopter that, as Dana Milbank stated so well on Lawrence’s show last night, “the state of New Jersey presumably bought for 12 million dollars a pop, for ‘homeland security’, not for the domestic tranquility of Chris Christie and his family…” But, wait, the governor’s hypocrisy goes even further, for he needed a limousine ride to carry his fat A$$ the rest of the way, the whole 100 yards ‘rest of the way’, taking him to his final destination, a high school baseball game his kid was in, a game that he left, after all of that, unless some other father entered the field of play with a Gulf Stream, in the fifth inning, jumping back on the brand new helicopter, that he has ridden now in his two year tenure as the governor of that great state, 33 times, 33 times!, to head out for a chat with some boys from Iowa who are trying to convince him to run, presumably, for President of the United States, either that, or this is some kind of weird reality television show that has spun off from “The biggest Loser”, which Christie’s little move just proved him to be. This is the same guy that has been telling AMERICA at large, sorry for the pun, none intended, that we must tighten our belts, that we must have “shared sacrifice”, really governor, how ’bout we start with your intake of food at lunch time, how ’bout that? You could probably feed a whole village in East Africa for a month with the amount of carbs you put away at a single luncheon with the rest of your fat cat friends in the House of Representatives–crooks and thieves all of ya! After the outcry to this blazing hypocrisy on behalf of just another a$$hole governor with an “r” next to his name, signifying his undying love for the fascist plutocratic regime that is Republicorp, Christie was going to just blow it off, but wait, the FIRST AMENDMENT does live and breathe, for the best news paper in New Jersey, the “Star Ledger”, after a ripping editorial, that I will provide, verbatim, made the governor pay for his joy ride, at least that one, and fess up to his bull$hit, well, not really, for he tried to make us all feel sorry for him at a press conference regarding the toughness of his schedule and the fact he does not have enough time for his kids…hell, I don’t remember my parent’s EVER coming to one of my games, be it football, basketball, or baseball, so GIVE US A BREAK governor! You, and the rest of your ‘brothers’ are truly a JOKE and will be called out as such, time and time again, so just keep on being you, for you provide us all, all of us members of the ‘drive by’ media, the one’s who just tell it how it IS, without sugar coating or “Angles”, thus providing the TRUTH, that is, more often that not, difficult for most people to swallow and digest, yes, you, just by being you, provide us with all of the ammunition we need to call you out on what you really are–A big, fat HYPOCRITE! So, without any further adieu, I bring you New Jersey’s finest paper, “The Star Ledger” and an editorial, for your reading pleasure, in it’s entirety, and may you and yours have a pleasant week end, free and clear of any wooden nickles the party of nonsense would have you purchase with your hard earned money…
and action! “An Editorial–Christie should pay for his helicopter ride to ballgame.” source: “the Star Ledger”, New Jersey..
“Call it ‘Sanctimonious One’, the tax-payer funded helicopter, which Governor Chris Christie didn’t hesitate to use at our expense for a joy ride (or several).”
“While everyone else, by the governor’s decree, must tighten their belts and do without things–like health care for women, and tax breaks for seniors, for example, Christie thought it was okay for tax payers to cough up a grand or two so he could take the flying limousine to the ball field…”
“Now we know why he can’t imagine what it’s like to walk a mile in the shoes of regular New Jerseyians. He doesn’t even walk 100 yards in his own.” beautiful.
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
