Random Comments of the Day

I signed up to take the online test for Sports Jeopardy.  I am not as good as I used to be with sports trivia, but I have nothing to lose by taking the test.  Since only 3 people a week are chosen as contestants, it is high unlikely I will be selected,

Politics in New York and New Jersey are becoming ugly again.  A few months ago Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was indicted on fraud and extortion charges.  Yesterday State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos was arrested on corruption charges.  So both Democrats and Republicans are crooks. It is a shame that we elect people to office and then they abuse their office. Two former aides to NJ Governor Chris Christie, Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni, pleaded not guilty in a 9 count indictment in the Bridgegate scandal.  I hope they are found guilty and face  to jail time.  Traffic is bad enough in this region and these people had to be spiteful and cause massive jams which inconvenienced thousands of people and threatened public safety.

Meanwhile Governor Christie's approval rating is down to 35%.  Even if he was not involved in this scandal, he is responsible for the actions of his subordinates.  To quote the late Richard Nixon "In any organization the man on the top must bear the responsibility..."  Heaven forbid  Chris Christie becomes President of the United States.  He should drop his unannounced campaign for the Republican nomination and concentrate on governing.
