And so begins my next Crock Pot.
Let's get right into the processed meat - Anthony Weiner - it's over, pal. New York really doesn't need your waggling tongue or other appendages hanging out and about.
In my previous posting, I mentioned Christopher Lee of Western New York, who admitted sending out a pic of himself topless to a woman on Craigslist. The difference between Chris Lee and yourself, however, is that he had the good sense to RESIGN.
Now...let me just state, for the record, that the Twitter pic in and of itself does not come to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. I hope that is clear. What does, Anthony, is that you LIED TO US about it. And the truth eventually came out, and it surfaces that you have engaged in online "discourses" with five other women? Now, you state that this all began long before your marriage to HRC staffer Huma Abedin, but guess what? That they CONTINUED into your marriage to her is the problem. Marriage is supposed to be as sacred as a blood oath; yet, you betrayed your supposed "beloved".
How are we supposed to take you at your word for anything?
Anthony...be at least as principled as your Republican colleague, and RESIGN. Try and devote some energy to the relationship that you said you would hold above all others.
So...we're almost done...let's take a look at the cover of today's New York Daily News:
There's a little bit of subliminal suggestion afoot - The headline reads, "Yeah, I'm a SCHMUCK"...sort of a, "c'mon, he's just a regular guy who made a mistake, blah, blah, blah"...except - he's NOT a regular guy - he is an elected representative. Whether you like it or not, Anthony, we hold you to a higher standard - and that is a standard that you need to adhere to, pal. Now...to what am I referring, you ask? It's the banner above the masthead - the one that states, "BE A WINNER!"
That, my friends, is NOT an accident. That is NOT a coincidence. This is part of the psychology that draws people every day to occasion a newstand and to pluck down their four bits for the toilet paper we call our tabloid news. Write to me at email@example.com if you wish to know more about this.
Okay...let's get into some good news:
New York local farms have persevered in their efforts to have their produce sold to NYC schools.
Why was this ever an issue?
If we are to ever get out of this recession/depression/financial boondoggle, we need to begin with our agriculture - that means that we have to take care of the farmers, people. They are our bread and butter. When we talk about "pork futures"...who do you think raises those sows?
Support your local farmers.
So...I'm on my way into work today...and I got a seat on the 8:00 A train, specifically Car #5945. I want you all to know that I did not capriciously title this piece today. I had the distinct displeasure of having someone pee into a cup not five feet from my person.
He is, at this point, resting the cup of man-made beverage under the seat. As of 59th Street, the cup has not spilled.
MTA - can we get a clean-up of Car #5945?
Update: Breitbart let this get out...this is NSFW (if you don't know what that means...don't click on this - hint: adult supervision is advised).
