These clowns have got to go. Okay, you know where I stand. More importantly however, is where the Mayor of the great City of Boston stands on the latest shenanigans of the Mass Gaming Circus.
Dealing with casino developers from a surrounding community perspective is something I have personal experience with. They suck. They lied, they delayed, they skimped, they were rude, they bloviated, they lied…..they suck.
Prior to dealing with casino developers I had personal experience dealing with DiMasi and DeLeo legislators on the casino issue. The later group – many with the same names and similar faces as the DiMasi group, sucked…..but lots of them got a raise and a chair/vice-chair seat. They suck.

Walsh said the decision “shows hows slanted they are towards this industry and not towards the residents of the city of Boston and the actual taxpayers that pay their salary.”
Walsh said the commission was abdicating their responsibilities and disputed Commissioner McHugh’s claims that the city was being unresponsive.
“Their job was to look out for our interests when we were a surrounding community,” said Walsh.
What do you think. Is this the oversight, beyond reproach public service that we were promised?
