Dear New Jersey Governor’s Office,
Thank you so much for once again embarrassing North American Democracy. I really believe in taxation policy as a way to level the socio-economic playing field, put resources in the hands of trained and dedicated civil servants, and achieve higher goals of a civil society, but, wow, I wouldn’t hand your Executive Branch the change at the bottom of my purse.
You may have missed it, but in the past five or six years, it’s been tough around. A lot of folks out of work, struggling financially, working long hours at understaffed enterprises. But not NJ! They got plenty of airtime to engineer a traffic jam.
For serious? I’ve witnessed plenty of workplace screwing off over the years, been completely amazed at the lengths that some people will go to undermine another human being, and shake my head at the frustrated sibling rivalry issues that play out in the behavior of many adults. Engineering a traffic jam. In some. Sort of. Attempt. To undermine. A political rival. Right.
If there had ever been a moment’s doubt in my mind that no one from New Jersey, politician or otherwise, should have any stature in national leadership, it has been erased. With 50 States to choose from, we got options. Its days like this when I think there should actually be a process for revoking Statehood and returning some States to Territorial status. Just do a reboot.
How many People’s lives were made hard by your actions? How much stress, anxiety and confusion were caused by your actions? How many missed day care pickups, missed medical appointments, missed classes? How many people lost money because of what you did? This is what you do with power? Not only was it pointlessly damaging, but it was wasteful and disrespectful of the time and needs of hundreds, if not thousands, of people.
OK, so you could say, Jersey’s a mess as it is, and there are a million traffic jams every day. Hmmm, I wonder how many are caused by the Governor’s Office?!?!?!
