What's up with the "Gunwalker" Scandal?

What the hell is going on in good old DC? No not the debt ceiling farce or any of the other monetary bullshit that is paralyzing the place!

I want to know why in the hell there has been NO HUMONGOUS OUTCRY of outrage, over the grossly offensive, despicable, and reprehensible act of letting all those guns be sold to the Mexican Cartels during the "Fast and Furious"disaster?

WHERE are all the so-called non partisan, uber-correct journalists whose JOB it always was, was to inform the public of gross dereliction and malfeasance of our elected officials? Have they all died and gone to heaven and left us with the present bunch of ass kissing obama lovers?

Why isn't the WAPO or the NYT or any of the other big name papers all over this like stink on a pile of nitrogenous waste matter?

They were right there every time some Republican made a mis-step, or a toe touch in a bathroom stall to the point of hounding them out of office. They didn't have too much to say about mr.hotdog, err, wiener either!

This whole affair makes the Watergate affair look like a high school prank by a bunch of kids. At least Nixon didn't get anyone killed! The tally is up to about 150 Mexicans so far and at least three US CITIZENS!!! How many more are going to die with guns that made it into the hands of US criminals? How the hell can anyone turn their backs on this mess and let all those people at the top of the pile walk away unscathed?

How come there is not a special prosecutor going after Eric Holder and the rest of BATFE leaders and on up the ladder too obomanation. Holder screams that he knew nothing about it but he gave a speech some where back in '08 and specifically mentioned that there had been money directed too this operation! It is on tape! It is all over the web! Why has this bastard not been canned and arrested?

A lot of those Nixon "co-conspirators" went to jail for various terms, and it looks like all these obomadroids are going to get a free pass because the people who have the power to do something, and who SHOULD BE SCREAMING about this barbarous and contemptible act are doing nothing!

I'm pissed and so should every other citizen of this once great country be. If the powers that be let prosecution of this slide away, well then this country is done as any sort of a model to be held up to others as a role model. TIFN.


Aftermath of the 4th of July

The last day of the 4th of July weekend ended as usual with about 1000 to 2000 young people ending up on the beach below the Surf Hotel and extending down to the Trustum Dodge monument. As usual there was an uncounted amount of under age drinking. It got to the point where there were in excess of 15 to 18 calls to that location for various problems. I don't know what they were so won't speculate as I'm sure to be called to account if I'm wrong. Suffice it to say that it was a trial for the Rescue Squad as they were called upon between 3 to 8 other times for other problems on other parts of the Island

The reason I write this today is to re-mention that for the last 3 years, after all these drinkers/revelers left the beach, it was a total and unmitigated disaster! Besides the deiterus of drinking, i.e. cans, bottles, beer boxes, wine bottles etc. there were many items of clothing. From sweatshirts, shoes, pants, shirts, underwear of both genders, and bathing suit tops and bottoms. This kind of leads me to believe that many of the young folk left the Island on the last ferries is somewhat a state of shall we say "dishevelment".

So as usual the beach was a mess and it had been arranged informally for the same folks who had cleaned it up for the last two years to again meet at the beach the next morning about 6 AM to again do the deed. Well imagine my surprise when we arrived to find that a dump truck had been left there over night and it was loaded to overflowing, and with just as much for a second load piled along side it.!

It seems that another 20 to 25 people who were just as pissed as we had been, had arrived shortly after all the despoilers had left and proceeded to completely restore the beach to its usual pristine, well almost, condition!

I have not been able to ascertain just who these folk were, or who the organizer was, but have been told it was a crew of the younger generations. SO, on behalf of all the Islanders who live here year round, I want to say THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! I've lived here for 73 years, and absolutely love this Island and am tickled to death that there really are like minded souls among us!

So if someone would like to "spill the beans" as to who these folks are, I would be most happy to recognize them in this space!!! Thanks again Guys and Gals. TIFN

OBTW:My spell checker never heard of the word "deiterus" or similar so don't know if it is spelled right! SAT!
