#58188 - akkere ONLINE (02/20/2014) [-]
So this morning I got to attend a town meeting (it was at a VFW)in regards to Hurricane Sandy (being a victim myself and a somewhat friend of the current mayor of the town, I received an invitation) where the governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, was supposed to talk about issues regarding Hurricane Sandy recovery and the budgeting of the funds to areas that were damaged, as well as answer a Q&A regarding that matter.
And... I'm not sure if I really want to attend another town hall meeting like that, at least, not at the expense of class or work.
Quite a few questions asked by the people at hand (I'd say almost half, though there weren't too many questions in general because of how long it'd take to answer each one) weren't even related to Sandy itself, but more personal issues (expected; it's a town meeting, after all). One woman asked about the difficulty of filing for divorce in her case. Some old guy went on about how Christie should smash all of his Bruce Springsteen CDs, probably because Springsteen is a notorious critic of Christie and his policies (apparently).
The only really interesting point of the meeting was one question; Why was HGI fired, and why were the grants privatized, as opposed to New York, which was kept centralized? Christie for some reason got fired up and kept pushing the idea that privatized grants was the way to go, and completely dodged the line of question regarding the firing of HGI, despite comments from the crowd asking for that part of the question to be answered (which, was the real question the guy had asked). They also took the person who asked the question in a civil and straightforward manner's microphone away despite his initial question not being answered.
And then the last three questions seemed... scripted.

Is this what town meetings are usually like? I understand this wasn't quite a usual town meeting, being that this had the governor himself talking and not the mayor, but nothing new seemed to have been brought up.

Upset is the wrong word, Annoyed. I have a massive personal dislike for the protesters.
#58208 to #58207 - valeriya (02/21/2014) [-]
So so, On a personal level I side with the government By personal I mean, privately I would prefer the government to prevail but I wouldn't be too upset, Lie I would be quite upset if they lost. , Ideologically I'm not inclined to support either side, the protestors will simply replace one corrupt government with another. The government isn't exactly my ideological ally and are more inconsistent then a person shoved full of lsd, the thing is the government is legitimate, and they're really just excising their authority and mandate, they were elected on a pro-russia platform, I'm not really sure what they expected with this. What's making matters worse is the EU and West are going to Push Ukraine and the Ukrainian government into Russias hands, the Sanctions are likely to be trade based and the two major trade partners of Ukraine are the EU and Russia, so it's a bit of a shot in the foot.

Yeah, it is interesting to hear that war propaganda against Irak (specifically, WMDs) was already materializing in the late 1990s; that is, during the Clinton administration. He speaks of this in the first part of the broadcast:

But do you seriously believe in the whole "Jews running the world" stuff? I don't really believe that since I know a ton of people who are Jewish and they really aren't living lives different from us...
User avatar #58214 to #58150 - byposted (02/21/2014) [-]
You are misinterpreting my position by claiming that I believe in Jewish elders "running the world." I rather recognize that the richest Jewish families have come to dominate America, and that they have been using acquired mediums in manners detrimental to the national interest. We need Teddy, as below, to bust their trusts.

The war on Irak is the prime example of this. We have established that propaganda against Saddam Hussein found its origins in the Clinton administration, and let me ask you this: Does it surprise you that Clinton's cabinet was the most Jewish ever in American history? This is not a trick statistic; there were so many Jewish functionaries under Clinton that it made one question the loyalties of the federal government.
