Nude sunbathing in the tropics - ouch!

Tahiti was amazingly beautiful. Bora Bora is simply divine. Words don't do it justice, mine fail completely. I can tell you my fair skin has become bronze, my hair is kissed by the sun, and my mood is beaming. Mental health achieved.

And then I returned home and read my pile of Wall Street Journals. Perhaps I should have just burned them all and lived in the harmony of the islands a few days longer.

So Obama has nominated Timothy Geithner to be the Treasury Secretary. A man who forgot to pay some of his tax obligations for several years. An honest mistake surely. As one respondent put it so eloquently, either Geithner is unethical (cheats on taxes) or is "just dumber than a box of rocks. Neither option qualifies him to lead the Treasury." I say I must agree. But for Obama to endorse him as the candidate is beyond reason especially in light of his executive order on Jan 21 that purports to create such ethical standards. Put down the Obama Kool-aid, America. Burp, breath or anything to snap out of it. Where is the clamor to demanding accountability for Obama? Where are the Bush haters who would be chewing barbed wire and sh1tting nails at the prospects?

The designate-Secretary has also opened his mouth on China's currency which resulted in free fall of the value of the dollar and caused gold to soar $40 an ounce.  This is only significant given that Obama will have to borrow the money he plans to stimulate us with (most likely from overseas).  A weaker dollar is not what we want people.

In Massachusetts, land of the eco friendly and a notoriously Democratic bastion of left wing do-gooder policies, the Cape Wind project may be coming to a a new boiling point. In case you haven't heard, the plan is to build 130 or so wind turbines off the coast of Martha's Vineyard to power 75% of the region and eliminate 734,000 tons of pollution annually. I am for that, especially with all that steady wind you folks have up there in Massachusetts. Oh wait, hold on just a darned minute, what do you mean the Democrats are against it? How can this be? They are for the environment at all costs to business. They have no problem supporting legislation that affects the other 49 state's environmental impact. How can they possibly be against something as green as this project. Simple. They don't want to look at it. They are afraid of a little scenery pollution ruining the million dollar views of their million dollar beach houses. How deep does it go? The Kennedys, Mitt Romney, Congressman Delahunt are all doing everything in their power to stop it. Teddy even went on the record to say the Interior Department's study which found only negligible environmental impact, was rushed. Rushed? Alll 2,800 pages of it. Now for those of you who sympathize with the wealthy Massachusetts Don Quixotes, the view will be diminished by the same amount as your thumbnail as viewed with your arm outstretched. Hardly something to cry about.

I must point out that the approval for the project was signed by presidential authority recently. You have George W. Bush to thank. Now the question is will Obama keep the project moving forward or will he back down to the political pressure of the Massocrats? I will hold him accountable, will you stand with me?

On a more stimulating note. I went to a private island in Tahiti and found out I like going topless. In fact, one day I even went bottomless. A word to the wise, sunscreen application is critical when doing so. Be warned. And no pictures were taken (that I know of!)

My plea to all.  Contact your local Senators and encourage them to block the Obambi stimulus.  I will do the same but my effort will probably be in vane as my Senators are Kerry and Kennedy.  Still, use the system, contact your Senators, make the public outcry heard.  Civil opposition.  Patriotic dissent.

Cyndi,

I, like you, am all for wind power.  I am also disturbed by this apparent double standard by folks in MA.  But, and I usually feel you are quite unbiased, you seem to be lumping Romney, a recent GOP presidential candidate, with the hoi polloi of Massachussetts.  This sounds more like a NIMBY issue than a Democratic or Republican one.  And, to be fair, do you think most Republicans who want to drill on the North Slope would be so gung ho if it were in their own neighborhood?  Screw the caribou, but don't mess up my hood. 

Just keeping it real.

BTW, kudos on the nude sunbathing.  I have tried it too, and it is worse, down below, for a man.

Cyndi,

I just finished reading through some of your blogs and was amazed and Laughing. You are no afraid to express your opinions and add humor to make your points or grab our attention. Where have you been hiding all my life?

As I just read, I was disapponited that I missed out on the shower offer - I would surely have volunteered. Do not be afraid to put the shower offer out there again sometime and be sure to ask for help applying lotion to keep you from ever getting burned again.Wink

I look forward to future blogsKiss

Another great topic, but maybe we shouldn't jump to conclusions.  Maybe they are not worried about the view but what might happen to all the birds that might get distracted and fly into themWink  Regardless, it never stops amazing me that everyone stomps their feet to go green until they personally have to and then it becomes an inconvenience and the excuses start flowing.  Be a man and state that you don't want it there because it blocks your view.  Don't try and blow smoke up my a$$ and say it was because the study was rushed.  Wouldn't Clinton have been more believable if he had said "yeah, I smoked pot.  Who hasn't when they were in college?"  Did he honestly think we would buy his not inhaling?  The same goes for everyone, republicans and democrats alike, we are not stupid so don't come up with these lame excuses just tell us like it is.

By the way, I am glad you had an enjoyable vacation!  I am sure you saw some amazing sunsets and some amazingly clear waters.

Well that explains why there wasn't a peep out of you last week during the all the hoopla.  But thanks to both the ladies for a nice monday mental image.

The story you bring up (if my memory serves me correctly) is old.  I remember this because it was brought up (can't remember when for the life of me) and that a bunch of Massholes where getting in a tiff because it would ruin their morning view of the ocean.  But if I remember correctly this was brought up a while back.

Well tough titty.

I have no problem whatsoever having those types of tech in plain view.  Man should be proud of the fact that he is able to master his surroundings and still live in harmony with the earth.

But those rich folk want to have their cake and eat it too.

Thanks for the update....I always enjoy reading your tidbits... Your clever approach and linguistic flow make me smile every time!

Welcome back, I am glad you revitalized your mind and as learned before it is always good to allow the sun to replenish your skin...all of it... too bad the paparazzi didnt find you though; we were all hoping for an udpated photo (even though the one you use is great!)...

I am for that, especially with all that steady wind you folks have up there in MassachusettsYes, as a resident of that "windy" state, I know a thing or two about Cape Wind. It's been blocked by both parties - Republican Mitt Romney when he was governor, and Sen. Ted Kennedy prominent on the Democratic side - to name only a couple. All that Nantucket political $$$ coming from the 2nd (or third, or fourth) homes of the wealthy - though a great number of them come from the greater NYC area (seeing as I've been there several times and seen many NY and NJ plates attached to Range Rovers). Personally, I'm for it -- but I don't have a house along Nantucket Sound. If I did, I might feel otherwise - honestly.

It occurred to me that I should weigh in on the horrible, ugly eye sore that is a wind farm since we get to see them out here in Iowa all the time.  Let's see, where to start.  Well they are an ugly shade of white.  And well they are shaped kind of ugly like a womans breast standing on one leg with pastie twirlers on them.  Come people, stop the charade.  Wind mills are sexy!! Subsidized or not, clean power is a great thing.  And I have put my money where my mouth is: solar cells, geothermal, and now I have a vertical wind turbine.

Green is sexy unless it is your member.  Keep that to yourself.
