Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, still rather cold island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you on this late Thursday afternoon, the 9th day of January, 2014, a day after the “Polar Vortex” eased it’s icy grip up a bit here in New England, with Cape Cod still on the frosty side but no longer digging out from the blizzard, as that snow melted in this new normal of yo yo weather patterns all due to global warming…as ironic as that sounds. Speaking of snow jobs, how ’bout that Chris Christie, the husky governor of the great state of New Jersey? In fact, if you had the time today, you could have listened or watched the one hour and forty eight minute apology to the people of New Jersey… Saying he was blindsided by some close staff members in his office, thanks to the now infamous emails that stated, “It’s time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee”, and the response, “Got it!”, emails sent by Christie’s deputy chief of staff, well, not any more, ’cause ‘ole Chris fired her but good just this morning, as he eluded to time and time again in his “all about me” apology that was full of more holes than anything else, indeed begging more questions than the “answers” he provided US today (good luck in 2016). This all while the President spoke at the White House in this “year of action”, with members of “promise zones” in the background. Reaching out to the rest of US, explaining that the income inequality gap in this great nation must be addressed (as it was under President Lyndon B. Johnson who brought the poverty level down, during the years of 1964 to 1970, from 22.2 percent to 12.3 percent, echoing the famous “War on Poverty speech” that is fifty years and one day old today!), somehow narrowing that ever widening GRAND CANYON gap between the haves and the have nots–not just with lip service, right Marco?, but with real action that makes a real difference to millions of Americans that are just as important as say a David Koch or Donald, “climate genius”, Trump. The top one percent in this country have seen their incomes skyrocket by 278 percent, while the bottom 90 percent have seen there wages flat line over this same thirty year period. Deserts in urban regions that include food, education, health and basic human safety are now common place and more often than not ignored. Homeless people dying in the streets of Los Angeles to Chicago to Boston, helpless to stave off the bitter cold of not only the elements, but of the human heart as well. Pity that we spend a whole day talking about this shameful vengeance the good governor of New Jersey may or may not have known anything about, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, isn’t that right you giant bully?!! Your organization is run like a paramilitary organization, tell me one more time you did not know anything about the ‘traffic study’? You hate liars, right Chris? How can we believe that a young, rather innocent employee of yours, your deputy chief of staff, Bridget?, you know her, yes, tell us that she, Bridget, called up the Port Authority that looks over the busiest bridge in the world, yes, this angelic looking figure called up Bob down on the docks and said, “…let’s shut down three lanes for a week on ‘da bridge in September ’cause that dirty ‘Serbian’ mayor from Fort Lee did not bow down and kiss the boss’s ring/and or ass, can you believe ‘dat?” Or something to that effect, yes, do you, Mr. Christie, really think we are going to believe that crock of #hit? Really? Well, we are starting off this New Year with a bang! Have a wonderful evening folks and I promise to get back real soon right here on seacapecod.net! Cheers! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
