If the hacks that are destroying this state want to get serious about reform start with this one. If you are a state rep that means your husband/wife, son, father/mother and uncles/aunts cannot be employed by any state agency or quasi agency. They do this conflict of interest BS that is totally meaningless as long as the trough is open to relatives and friends. The state agencies are ripe with cronyism and political favors - jobs.
The district where President Obama (Walk On Water) grew up in Hawaii went Republican in a special house election. Twenty years of Democrats are no more for that district.
The oil spill in the Gulf is just another in a long line of engineering disasters and when all the blame and finger pointing is complete then the real work will begin. Everything that led up to the disaster will be analyzed and safeguards will be engineered. That will be the important outcome and not the politics of ranting or corporate malfeasance.
Dr. Peter Venkman and his crew were recently at the town hall hunting down ghosts. Selectwoman Marsha Brunelle is a supporter of this nonsense that has no science foundation what so ever. But who am I to complain since this is an amusing past time and keeps some busy much like my baseball diversion. I’m sure all their sensitive instruments are a real hoot that Rube Goldberg would be proud of. Just if you manage to capture anything please beam it up to the mother ship.
Since I go running with BB - although he really waddles - I do have access to this local power broker and decided - like Fergie - to try to cash in on that. So far I have collected a rusty lug nut, a broken crayon and a coupon for Cheez-Nips that expired on 5/31/2008. Guess I have to continue to rely on scratch tickets for my eventual big score.
The United States has always lagged behind Europe on social issues such as health care, welfare, unionization, labor laws, employment benefits and so on. For decades now many European nations have had a cradle to grave benefit system and now the bill has become due and the result is economic turmoil resulting in serious budget cuts. This is the end result of entitlements gone wild and should be a solid wake up call for this country. When liberals “brag” about all these hand outs the sheer ignorance is showing - someone has to pay the bill.
In Massachusetts it pays - and I do mean pays - to be an illegal. Benefits are handed out for no apparent reason. The logic just escapes my feeble little thought process.
Wamps are starting to look more like the lost tribe of Israel.
The United States has deployed troops all over the world and some are in rather adventurous foreign policy situations where the U.S. is viewed as an invading force. So if that is true why are we allowing ourselves to be invaded? President WOW has dispatched 1,200 troops to Arizona to help secure our borders from what has become an invasion from Mexico. Maybe it is time to add a few more zero’s to that number and get real serious about this invasion. For those of you with a smattering of American history a good portion of the Mexican-American War was steeped in the fact that Mexico viewed our immigration as an invasion. Despite pledges immigrants really rejected much of the government policies, laws and religion. The immigration began to serious overwhelm the area and eventually Texas fought and won independence and later the U.S. war with Mexico translated into Texas becoming a state after a brief flirtation being a republic.
Unemployment rate jumped to 9.9% last month. Tell those folks all about recovery.
Wonder how many of Obama’s teleprompters it would take to plug that oil leak?
Going green is fine and it seems to be the thing to do but is there another side to the story? Try reading “Power Hungry: The Myths Of Green Energy” by Robert Bryce. You may disagree with some portions of it and agree with others but when examining an issue it is best to examine from all sides especially those sides which you may feel you vehemently are opposite of.
Stay safe 144th.
