Consumer confidence hit an eleven month low and that speaks to what could be translated at the polls in November. Lack of confidence in the economy happens to historically reflect on the sitting party in power.
Sen. Brown (R- Cosmo) supported the financial bill after significant changes since it would not raise taxes or increase the deficit. I have no idea about the deficit portion since somehow government policy usually results in government expanded bureaucracy so that portion may be incorrect.
The bickering over slots will continue to delay the expansion of gin mills in Massachusetts but the perfect one was highlighted in The Herald. Steve Wynn proposing a casino in the convention center area. IMO that is the perfect site to rob….I mean to offer…..”entertainment” to conventioneers. Boston is a convention center and a casino would certainly be more welcome for the party crowd than a hike on the Freedom Trail. Besides Mayor “Mumbles” said it is a terrible idea….convinces me it is a great idea. Wynn’s projects are spectacular and I am sure no expense - either above or under - the table will be spared. Maybe “The Raven” can be a greeter? Orange suit would look nice among the Nathan Detroit crowd.
Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Parrot Head) was one of the local legislators to vote for a name change for Bridgewater State College from college to university. One of the main reasons is the title university will confer prestige and help attract “high quality students.” What does that tell you how they currently think about the student population at BSC? I guess it is just loaded with third rate dips**ts and now needs a profile upgrade. I’m sure the scions of the elite in Dover and Manchester By The Sea will now toss their Ivy applications in the bucket. Now I graduated from Boston College and Boston University so which one is better? I actually preferred Boston State College.
The Iroquois Nation has issued passports that are not recognized by other nations especially our own. This is reminiscent of the anti’s who generally refused to acknowledge sovereignty issues regarding tribes - tribes that systematically have faced genocide, slavery, cultural destruction and land being stolen. When this issue raged I was amazed and flabbergasted by the total incomprehension of how some failed to realize what our ancestors have done. Of course - it’s the law! Laws made by occupiers.
Back to Senator Brown. Turns out a “comedian” - Kathy Griffin - called his daughters prostitutes in an interview on CNN. Now Brown is in a snit claming his family should be off limits and I disagree. What I agree with is Barney Frank and countless others who have taken to task Griffin and I wish they’d toss in the two bobble head reporters at CNN who laughed at this. Something tells me if some called Michelle Obama “A whore” these two would have gone to DEFCON levels.
WOW and his takeover crowd obviously blew it by requiring auto makers to eliminate dealerships. End result according to the Inspector General is a 100,000 jobs lost.
Speaking of WOW he is opening up on the Republicans over billions in tax breaks “for the rich.” What a pile of hypocritical manure. This is the administration that has bailed out some of the highest profile companies in the country. Nice to save the big boys and let the little ones die on the vine.
Raising national educational standards to those in Massachusetts would be the sensible approach but sensible and federal government are conflicting terms. The methodology appears to be to lower our standards to theirs rather than raising their standards to ours.
Bridget “The Midget” Powers - a midget or is the PC term “Vertically challenged” porn star was in the news when a Stoughton cop (what goes on it that town?) had to resign over an on duty liaison with Ms. Powers. The next day a BB sized perv in Middleboro who tipped the scales at 485+ pounds packed onto a 5’8” frame was nailed for exposing himself. I just love the summer!
