Like Getting a Lecture on Table Manners From Mr. Creosote

From Album4
Full disclosure, I'm starting to get a little large and soft around the middle myself -- such is aging -- so I try to avoid this kind of criticism. But goddamn:
...New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is warning against a nation filled with "a bunch of people sittin' on a couch waiting for their next government check." ... "I think it's really simple: it's because government's now telling them 'stop dreaming, stop striving, we'll take care of you.' We're turning into a paternalistic entitlement society."
Chris Christie? Here's a guy who saw nothing wrong with demanding a fucking State helicopter take him to his kid's baseball game...AND a motorcade for the hundred yards between the landing site and diamond. A guy who routinely, no pun intended, went way big with luxury hotels on the gubmit's dime while a US Attorney.

And he's going to suggest that people who expect decent services from their government, which, last I checked, is still nominally a democracy, i.e., self-government, i.e., services from ourselves, are somehow lazy?

Oh, and speaking of lazy, it looks like the governor either couldn't or wouldn't do the math when it came to a major public works project (search for "tunnel"). Figures.

Miss Me Yet?

From Album4
Nope. Still don't. But keep on talking. Maybe the media and general public will remember who got us into this mess.
