I attended a MAPP meeting in the first part of December that was held in Cambridge. The purpose of the meeting was for the Citizens of Dorchester to have their informed input with the direction and construction of the MAPP transmission power line.
Well the meeting started out well with the moderators getting input from everyone on the appointed committee, those from Delmarva Power, and other informed people on the subject.
The exercise was the type that most large corporation use to first, identify issues “pro and con,” discuss and recommend the solution that best addresses the task at hand. This exercise has served many large corporations well giving them the best direction to take their business plan.
The problem started though when the target was being narrowed down to which route MAPP should take, and it appeared that the “Choptank River Route,” was being identified as the solution to MAPP's and the citizens of Dorchester’s best interest.
You could see it on the faces of those whom had themselves appointed to the Citizens Advisory Committee. It was as if a switch within their brain went from somewhat logical input to instant Whining Mode! Comments such as, “Well I’m not qualified to give the answers or comment on that Choptank River Route because I’m not an engineer! I don’t know enough about the subject to give a recommendation!?!?!? I can’t do that!!?!!
WELL WHY DID YOU NOT PROFESS THIS INCOMPENTENCE BEFORE YOU LET YOUR OWN HUBRIS PRIDE PLACING YOURSELF OR ACCEPT THE RECOMMENDED APPOINTMENT TO THIS COMMETTEE!
After everyone else sat there listening, educating themselves on the subject to make an informed decision for themselves, the reality outcome of the meeting was very evident for everyone else at the meeting that those sitting on the “Citizens Advisory Committee” were nothing more than a group that did not want to be part of the problem solving solution but their purpose was nothing more than to represent a bunch of “Nihilistic Whining!”
From my travels around the county and informing Citizens of Dorchester on what happened at the MAPP meeting, it is evident to the majority of the citizens of Dorchester that it is because of these type of people that Dorchester is as far behind the rest of the state in employment, what employment there is has a well below average in monetary pay, education of the population as a whole, and the loss of population from people leaving the county to places better.
Not only "Trail" but now "Path" has been approved which means the MAPP plan will be approved soon.
On another positive note, I was glad to see Libby Nagel wearing her Mickey Mouse ears demonstrating her “Stupidity Flag” for all to see. Glad I’m getting to you Libby and allowing me to expose you for what you really are. A dullard, dimwitted, dunce, ignorant of any true facts on the MAPP’s subject.
