The other night I stopped at a local variety store to pick up a pizza that my wife had ordered. As I left the vehicle to enter the store, my wife requested that I grab a 2-liter soda while I was in there. It occurred to me, as I perused through the cooler in search of one that “everyone would like”, (which is code for “don’t get Dr. Pepper because you’re the only one that drinks it”) that if I lived in the State of New York I would be engaging in a criminal activity. Yes, the Empire State is living up to its name and by imperious order Mayor Bloomberg has decided that pizza coupled with a 2-liter soda is such a heinous combination that it should be outlawed in the Big Apple. (It’s rumored that the Mayor contemplated banning the large nickname until he was assured that the “big apple” weighs less than 32 ounces.) Thank God, I live in Northern Maine!
Bloomberg’s sidekick, Governor Cuomo, has enacted some of the toughest anti-gun laws in the nation. He now has exempted Hollywood actors from his gun laws because we all know from watching the antics of Hollywood’s finest, that only they, not law abiding citizens, have the gravitas, mental stability and down home common sense to be entrusted with those bang-shooty thingys. Enter Lindsey Lohan…yes, the Big Apple has got a worm in it and the Empire State has fallen to the dark side. Another sigh of thanks that I live in Maine, a strong 2nd amendment State (just ask the Bangor Daily News).
But how, you may ask, can such tomfoolery in leadership go on unquestioned? This dance of buffoons in New York is aided and abetted by the vacuum of silence, which is the media. Much of the chicanery that is liberal politics can only function under the cloak of silence afforded to them by the deceit of the modern-day agenda-driven media. They are well aware that common sense Americans have little tolerance for the idiocy-gone-to-seed behavior that many left wing politicians exhibit. So they just don’t report it.
Take the latest jewel from the gift that keeps on giving, Justin Alfond, Maine’s version of Joe Biden. He believes that Governor LePage’s biggest problem is that he is too truthful. Or then there is the fact that the White House has decided to use the Portland Press Herald to send its communications to Governor LePage. We knew the President has trouble balancing a budget, but no money for stamps? We do have problems. Well, I’m sure the Herald can keep a secret, don’t you? This has prompted the Governor to “advise” the President that, while they are aware that the U.S. Postal Service has some issues, it is still a preferred mail carrier over the Portland Press Herald.
Left-Wing politicians have enjoyed the cover of silence for so long they don’t know quite what to do when the cover is blown. For so long when the few tried to warn the public about the shenanigans of these individuals, citizens were hard pressed to believe anyone could be so downright foolish. It flies in the face of all facets of wisdom, and there was no verification from the yawning silence of the media….until now. Some have grown tired of shirking their professional responsibilities and have begun to expose the poor behavior of these leaders, prompting severe backlash from even the White House.
The extreme measures of such imperious leaders as the ones in New York have caused a backlash from many of their constituents. This provides a certain warning to all those who pride themselves in strong-arming the American public. “Hang on to your ‘Bloombergs’ because you may have a revolution on your hands!”
