Well, lets explore what betrayal is. First we must understand that before there can be betrayal there has to be TRUST...make sense - sure it does.
Second, before a man can betray his country, his friends, his sweetheart, there must be a moral bond, otherwise all he can betray is his conscience...in the case of County Executive John Stoffa - there doesn't appear to be a conscience. His actions relating to the Gracedale initiative indicate he believes in his heart that in politics it is sometimes necessary either to betray one's friends or the electorate. His decision to SUE The People clearly demonstrated that he prefers to betray the electorate.
Stoffa's deceptive betrayal reminds us of the man staring down the barrel of a gun, held by his wife/girlfriend - and says to her:
OK, OK, OK...
...yes, I admit telling her to make me a sandwich!
And yes, I admit to eating it!
But...I never enjoyed one bite!
POW - POW
She didn't buy it...and neither did WE!
0957 05/25/12 - Update - The end story here is about a wife/girlfriend who did not believe her husband/boyfriend, who betrayed her by cheating on her with another woman. The wife/girlfriend did not believe her husband/boy friend and took matters into her own hands...our only intent is to say: just as the woman did not believe her husband because she knew better - we don't believe Mr. Stoffa when he says that he did not misuse tax dollars because we know better. That's it in a nutshell.
