Votey Vote

Remember back in October when the banks of the world were about to collapse? We were told we needed to give the banks billions of dollars in order to save ourselves. "If Wall Street goes belly up, soon too will fall Main Street." Many of us said, "No, this sounds like a bad idea." And then congress gave Wall Street our money. So a bunch of Americans lost their jobs. Now, the banks are in good shape reporting a good deal of profits. That should mean we are all back to work. Hmmm. How come what's bad for Wall Street is bad for Main street but not what's good for Wall Street is good for Main Street?

I don't know the answer to that. What I do know is that the people of NJ can take a stand. NJ has the chance to vote for governor this coming November. It will be Corzine vs, Christie. I say vote for a third party. But none of you will do that, so my second choice is Christie. He has a history in NJ politics which means he's probably corrupt somehow, maybe even mobbed up--it is NJ after all. As a New York Times op-ed piece once wrote, "NJ is a petri dish of corruption." However, the man he is running against, incumbent John Corzine, worked for Goldman Sachs. The mob could only dream of pulling off the scams that Goldman Sachs has pulled off. 200 years of NJ politics has not stolen as much money as Goldman Sachs has in 10 months.

Let me put it to you this way, Good Fellas was a way better movie than the Boiler Room. If you're not going to vote third party vote for the least compotent criminal running.

God Bless America!
