Greetings & Salutations!
I'm back from my nice, relaxing vacation in lovely Cape May, NJ and I survived Hurricane Isabel. Actually, Izzy was more west of us in NJ and we only had a tropical storm. Still, during times on Thursday, those wind gusts got up to 50 and 60 mph. That's nothing to sneeze at, yah know. A rundown on weather report for the six days I was in Victorian Cape May:
Sunday ... Hazy & Humid
Monday ... Overcast & some Rain
Tuesday ... Sunny, warm, blue skies
Wednesday ... Sunny, warm, some clouds & wind later in the evening
Thursday ... Tropical Storm kicked ass
Friday ... Sunny, warm & 25 mph winds
Overall I had a nice time on vacation, but after six consecutive visits to the southern NJ shore, well folks, its time for a change. I've been seriously thinking of checking out Quebec next year, maybe in late August or early September. As to this vacation ... I had much preying on my mind, did lots of serious thinking and at times was lonely. Some highlights of my visit ... hooking up with a "peace rally" on Sunday, visiting a 19th Century furniture exhibition, participating in a fun Cape May Haunting tour, riding a bike rental all over, good food, shopping, chatting with a few aquaintances, sitting on the beach watching a sunset, etc.
Now on to political stuff ... hell yeah!
From MoveOn website some news regarding the "false statements" uttered by Shrub the Lesser. You may want to check out these websites:
The "illegally" elected President say things that are misleading or just plain wrong every day, but most of these statements are never challenged. Well ... let's challenge them ... cause if we don't our country will sink further and further into a quagmire. With Misleader.org ... check out Shrub's lies and then read the "truth". Here is an example:
ON TAX CUTS
G.W.Bush ... "The tax relief is for everyone who pays income taxes, Americans will keep, this year, an average of almost $1,000 more of their own money."
The Truth ... Nearly half of all taxpayers get less than $100. And 31% of all taxpayers get nothing at all.
The US occupation in Iraq has left American soldiers unprepared and vulnerable, the country degenerating into chaos, and the Iraqi people embittered and hostile. Now the President is asking Congress for a staggering $87 billion blank check to fund more of the same. Until he takes strong steps to correct this failure, Congress shouldn't give him a cent. Bush needs to fire the team responsible, starting with Defense Secretary Rumsfeld and transfer authority to the United Nations. Please join us at MoveOn.org in telling Congress to hold on to our money until Bush changes his team and changes his course in Iraq.
