Christine O’Donnell, one of the Tea Party’s newly minted stars has revealed that she will forgo any further national media coverage so as to” focus on Delaware.” Her last-minute cancellation of two Sunday show appearances two days ago garnered her widespread criticism, see the sources below. O’Donnell said her decision was motivated by advice that she received from Sarah Palin, but we can only assume that in addition to that advice, Ms. O’Donnell hopes to get out from under the media scrutiny that has thus far revealed a history of financial missteps, dishonesty and tales from the world of witchcraft. The real question is does she have the conviction of her beliefs or not? Does she think that she can effectively serve in the office of U.S. Senator from Delaware? A further, compelling question is why forgo free national exposure in the big leagues of the political talk show circuit if you truly feel you are up for the task of being a United States Senator? Don’t the voters in Delaware watch television? Would not the news of her appearance on shows like Meet the Press cause the voting public to tune in to those debates so as to see [...]
A post below on immigration by a resurrection of the No-Nothing Party who support Charlie “The Mole” Baker should take note of this important but never discussed FACT: ALL THE PILGRIMS WERE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. So, for Blue Blood Charlie Baker and all his Mayflower descendants all your relatives were illegals. Let’s see your papers Charlie. Repeal the 14th Amendment now, pal ?
Hi All: Another debaucle from Mayor Tom Menino which is even more embarassing than the “Lite Brite Fiasco”. It appears that the mayor just had to speak out regarding the tragedy in Hyde Park , a heinous murder of a hard working pizza delivery man a few weeks ago. He said he would like to fight the suspects in a dark alley. He then said he would give them something “worse than the death penalty,” and torture them. To avoid looking foolish, sometimes it is better to remain silent than to speak up and remove all doubt. Menino couldn’t beat up a pillow, I could only imagine how badly he would lose against these people that used a knife to kill that poor man in cold blood without remorse. Fortunately, Menino doesn’t have any hand in doling out punishment in Massachusetts either. The Democratic Party, which he claims to be a member of does not condone torture under ANY circumstances. If they are found to be guilty, they rightly deserve life and a day in prison without the possibility of parole. Let them rot. Sincerely, Wayne Wilson Roslindale
2010 has been a year of missed opportunities for the environment. From no progress or worse on the international climate action stage, to a clean energy bill in the U.S. Senate that is still on ice despite the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, it’s enough to make you want to throw up your hands and buy beach-front property on the Bering Sea. However, the price of resignation is even higher than the price of delay. So it looks like we are going to have to come together and take a look at what we can do about it. I want to invite you to come to New Bedford, MA on the weekend of October 22-24 for the Connecting for Change conference. Before I go further – you need to know that you can save $75 per ticket if you get your tickets before the early birds rates expire on Saturday. Don’t filibuster this – Get them now. Van Jones is going to be there to talk about how we can address climate change AND revive the economy through clean energy investment and development. Annie Leonard is going to be there to help us see the big picture of how [...]
FOX’s Mike Beaudt reports Gov. Deval Patrick’s public safety administration has sat for a year on a request by federal immigration authorities to sign up for a controversial new program aimed at finding and deporting immigrants with serious criminal backgrounds, preventing local police outside of Boston from taking part in it, a FOX Undercover investigation has found. This initiative from the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Immigration is simple. When someone gets arrested for a crime they get fingerprinted. The arresting police department checks the prints on a system which will identify criminals who have previously committed serious crimes and whether they are here in the US legally. At that point the police can call ICE to get the criminals. But Deval has not signed the paper neccesary for Police Departments through the state (except Boston) to aprtace in the program. Bruce Chadbourne, head of the New England field office of the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s detention and removal division… “Our goal is to pick up those who are priorities, which are Level 1, who are convicted for serious, heinous crimes — murder, rape, armed robbery. Things like that,” Chadbourne said. “We’ve picked up some very bad [...]
