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!)

Welcome home to the Glacier.  Glad to see you threw my home state under the bus.  Cape Wind was almost single handedly killed by Teddy "the White Whale" Kennedy.  Maybe from being under pressure from his home town community.  Maybe because he could see wind turbines from his window.  What ever the reason, the Senator who was all for alternate power did a 180 and moved to kill Cape Wind.    But I would like to point out to you that Romney has long since been out of the picture here in Mass.  We now have Deval "together we can" Patrick, who, facing a 2.5 billion dollar shortfall for 2009 while still expanding the Beacon Hill payroll, has got his hand full.  Since taking office, Patrick can take the credit for having not signed, enacted or set forth one single achievement besides writing his memoirs and increasing the government payroll with jobs that Massachusetts has never seemed to need throughout it's long history.  That is, until he took office and created them.  But while you were gone you did miss the fall of Princess Caroline and the circus that it was.  Shocking, the people of New York actually wanted a Senator with political experience and intelligence.  But that isn't the real reason she dropped out now is it?

Keep on telling the truth Cyndi.  Bunch of hypocrites.

And that tip on sunscreen is absolutely true.  I got a sunburn on my pubes once....ONCE I stress!
