    Flagged at church

    As of Monday 11/12/12 governor Piss Twinkie is allowing NJ residents access to their homes on the barrier island in my neighborhood from 8-3pm daily. Basically so people can salvage whatever they can. There will be no gas, electric, or water service in the area for 6 months. I think it’s a man’s/woman’s constitutional right to live in those conditions if they choose to. Apparently not. Holy sh*t, what did those poor humans do 150 years ago?! (kidding)
    Today I took advantage of this special privilege (sarcastic). I mostly wanted to pop a squat on my couch, put my feet on my coffee table and look out at the bay with my dog. I took my dog to the beach straight up my street after that.
    Like me, my dog grew up on the beach, so we were both very happy and relieved to be there. For me, “church” is the place where land meets the sea. The energy that exists there is amazing, intimidating, beautiful, scary, super stoking, deadly, irresistible, (plenty more adjectives for my church). Anyway, my dog was amping out all over the place (she’s 9) and I was taking in as much beach stimulus as I could before being kicked off the island at 3pm by the police. After about 2 minutes a cop walks up behind me with his hand on his gun and asks me “can I help you?” with an attitude. I refused to believe he was being that much of a d*ck. I was already smiling from laughing at my dog running around and replied “no, I don’t need any help, what’s up?” He actually was being a duesh master and apparently we can’t go on the public beach where we live. This caught me way off guard to say the least. I let officer hard on know I was there during the storm, had waves crashing off of my front door, and stayed for a week after. He said he was just doing what he was told and I believe that but it’s still not right. The ironic part is if anyone should be looking out for anyone on the beach, it should me looking out for him. During the week that I stayed on the Island (post sandy) I had face to face conversations with the mayor, chief, captain, sergeant, and other officers. They were all very respectful and genuinely concerned unlike officer boner breath.
    I understand things are f*cked up all over and there are more problems than solutions at this time, but treating the victims like criminals during this period of extreme despair is atrocious and useless.
    Thanks so much Governor Piss Twinkie.
    Thanks so much to all of you NJ haters, you must be in your glory.

    Sorry for your losses bro. Hope you and your neighbors are able to work it all out.

    Anyone who goes to church by taking their dog to the beach is righteous in my book.

    As far as the cop goes, you might want to google schutzstaffel...I think it's where we're headed.

    'he was just doing what he was told'...

    Where we're heading????? We've been there!!! Why do you get nervous when a cop even passes you by? You're not drunk, you're not smoking anything funny, you're not even speeding yet the fear is there! There's a reason and it's simple. We already live in a TOTALITARIAN state. Google that!

    Lennin (please insert your favorite Lebowski refference) wrote that once a state spend more on military/security than education it has officially become such a system.

    ohhh and per the recent "vote" ... two choices is one choice away from no choice. democracy here is smoke and mirrors for ignorant masses.

    we are already there !

    Wow, Doug... My heart goes out to you, brother. I don't even know what to say except, "things can only get better." But even that just sounds so insultingly trite. You probably already know this, but you're not alone in your losses, your emotions, and the graveness of your situation. I'll say a prayer for you next time I'm in "church."

    As a side note... I've voted for one major party candidate in the last 20 years, and I've voted in every election since 1984.

    Thanks for the positive vibes. Possibly part of the problem here is, the officials making decisions on how to "restore these communities" are not residents of them. Living comfortably in their own homes it's easy for them say, go f*ck yourself for 6 months because they're not in the situation themselves. Meanwhile an unnecessary amount of people are now looking for a place to live, availability is decreasing quickly, and rent rates just magically increased in the area. For most people the beach/beach area in Ocean County NJ is a novelty that they embrace only a few times a year between June and August. It's a hard pill to swallow when those are the people deciding if and when we can go home. Tumble weed Tuesday is the day after Labor Day and when 95% of the homes here become vacant until June. Sh*t, half of those bay front and ocean front homes are vacant even in the summer. All of those "home owners" don't actually live here. They're doing just fine, their primary residences are ok and so are there important valuables. I guess what I'm getting at is the voice of the year round residents is barely an audible whisper in the ears of people like governor Piss Twinkie. The “officials” in charge fail to see that the year round residents are a large part of what makes these towns functional in the first place. Governor Piss Twinkie isn’t dragging peoples drowning family members out of the ocean any time of the year, it’s people like me.

    PS in case anyone was offended, by titling flagged at church I’m not trying to knock traditional church at all. I’m not pro or anti on anyone’s religious belief. To each his own.

    It's a horrible situation.

    Having stated the obvious, it will never improve. It being the govt view of the citizenry. The govt, state & esp federal, is going to take this opportunity, and believe me, they do look on this as an opportunity, to control the citizenry. The cops with their hand on the gun screw you 'tude. The lack of response from taxpayer-fueled govt agencies. It adds up to control.

    The govt is desensitizing the populace in order to gain control. Meaning, when you see SWAT teams & police conducting 'exercises' on neighborhood streets in the name of the war on terror, and that's the un-winnable war kids, do you get it, that means if we are constantly at war based on the govt definition, then the govt can & will abrogate your civil rights.

    Bottom line? We're f * u cked. All of us. NJ is just the most blatant example of the destruction of our Constitutional rights.

    I'm not ripping the first responders. Rip me if you will, but don't confuse what I'm saying with your emotional world. What this nation was founded upon is being eroded, actively so, by the feds & that's Repub & Dem, non-partisan, ISO control.

    NJ is history, legacy, family, community, passion, pride, jobs, businesses, homes.

    And it's time to read the signs & move.

    One man's humble opinion.

    I feel yah man.. I live a little north of you and was a first responder during Sandy. My shift started at 7pm- saw some **** and watched my life tore down by a redneck in a bulldozer smoking reds. My only advice is that the police and other people have been there for weeks at this point on end working crazy shifts. They snap and usually its on the wrong people. I ran up to surf after Athena and a women in a warm car told me I couldn't- I started in with the attitude, but stopped when I realized this isn't about my town or my safety but about securing the summer business. I went home cleaned a bit and went out and cleaned for others- felt as good as surfing believe it or not. Bottom line THEY ARE WRONG but my bigger issue now is mold- wind stay North so I don't have to see it. In hindsight I watched the vid up after Athena and thought that some of these people live in towns that were hit hard and instead of helping their neighbors they were indulging themselves. Shame on them!
