How to privatize a public beach

These are photos of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and his family and friends enjoying a public beach, which they have all to themselves, because Christie and his fellow Republicans shut down the state government on Friday — shutting out the public from public recreation sites on the Fourth of July.  Needless to say, Christie is incensed that the news media published this photo. Here he is, in all his glory (Christie is the fatso on the extreme right glaring at the photographer).

In these Sunday, July 2, 2017, photos, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie uses the beach with his family and friends at the governor’s summer house at Island Beach State Park in New Jersey. Christie is defending his use of the beach, closed to the public during New Jersey’s government shutdown, saying he had previously announced his vacation plans and the media had simply “caught a politician keeping his word.” (Andrew Mills/NJ Advance Media via AP)
