My take on "Round Boy"(Christie),the affectionate

by Tony Holmes / November 3, 2012 6:07 AM PDT

nickname we have for our Gov,he's not screwing around.

He got BO off the campaign trail to come here for his photo op to get good will in a state that will probably vote for him anyway!

As of 12 noon today,Round Boy ordered gas rationing based on your plate# vs day of the week.

Our town here in North Jersey has 3 gas stations with power that are open.As you might imagine,that puts an enormous burden on the local cops to keep order at those open stations to enforce the odd/even rule.

Fortunately,"Round Boy" foresaw this dificulty and you probably won't hear this on your local news but "Round Boy" also deployed the National Guard to help the local PD!!

My lady and I went to the local Stop and Shop to re-supply the fridge and left $200 poorer! On the way home I rode past all 3 stations.

Each station had one cop watching over the chaos of traffic lines to take care of any arrests,while there were at least 6 troops at each station directing traffic,etc!!

The NG troops were doing an admirable job,kicking cheaters and line jumpers out of line while the cop leaned back,supervising the whole mess.All the troops I saw had side arms and they meant business.

I must have personally 'fist bumped' at least 6 troops in the traffic saying:"Thanks for being here and thanks for serving"!!!! I recieved a "Thank you very much sir,you have a very nice day" from every damn one of them!!!!

As for me,I'm doing fine,thank you.We were without power for 2.5 days but we're back up and running now.I have two chainsaws I loaned to my neighbors along with the the Craftsman 2 cycle fuel to run them to cut up the crap on their property.We take care of our own here and don't wait for help!

I'm glad to hear Christie

has more sense than some on when to get troops into a troubled area.

Now you know why I installed a old fashioned cast iron wood stove in my home. Got tired of no heat and no cooking in winter storms when power went out. I paid under $300 for it from northern tool some years back and it's more than paid for itself in that time, actually was worth that in the first couple years. Mine is a Vozelgang, they have a duplicate of it by another name now. Wood, old lumber, paper logs we make from old newspapers, charcoal from store if nothing else on hand. Mine will take a 2 foot log, so might be a bit longer than the current one. Ah, I see they still sell it. On a cold load you can do it from the top. An old fry pan with ring on it can replace one of the covers for cooking on it. Pots can be placed to keep things warm, the upper vent can let air come across under the lid for keeping smoke out and controlling how hot the top is. Best control is by using the flue vent.

Glad you're all right, Tony

And yes, Christie is doing a fantastic job with this situation. I don't think it's his intention but this will go a LONG way for him come 2016.
