You forgot the barricades, aka “Barry-cades”, which blocked access and caused congestion. All so that Obama could make sure people felt his discomfort from demands to operate with a budget. Apparently, Obama thinks capital and labor are commodities to be priced by a government monopoly and purchased when it suits his needs.

And, of course, the scandal which breaks the scale: abortion. State-sponsored execution through lethal injection or dismemberment. When a scalpel is appropriate, Obama uses a hatchet. When he thinks of the children, he chooses a scalpel, literally.

    That’s not to say there aren’t pro-choice Republicans, but Democrats, and Obama specifically, perceive life as a commodity, interchangeable and disposable, from conception to death.

    In many respects that “barrycades” are what make this whole thing so unbearable to watch.

    Do we not have the same right to justice as anyone who drove the New Jersey turnpike?

      Yes. Through democratic leverage (i.e. majority politics) or something less polite. It’s unlikely that we will have standing in a court of “law”. The best opportunity may be to prevent a mass manipulation of perception through grass-roots (i.e. individual, personal) efforts.

      That said, I hesitate, and actually loathe, playing the game by their rules. Perhaps others will be less repulsed. I would at least try to hold the moral ground, which requires patience, skill, and integrity.

Christie on a weigh scale. I’m gonna avoid the obvious jokes. Too easy. Funny cartoon, though.

Absolutely wonderful and so on target. The media is thrilled to have Christie as a target and he will be a big target for many, many days to come.
