Stop Predatory Gambling - Mass. residents read below and call your senator and representative: On Christmas Eve morning, when virtually no media, citizens or other state legislators were paying attention to legislative business, the Massachusetts Senate approved an amendment during informal session that would allow ATMs inside casinos. This stunning action occurred even though the intent of informal session is to move non-controversial legislation. Please take 5 minutes tonight or Monday morning to call both your MA state rep and state senator and tell them to remove the amendment language approving casino ATMs in House Bill 4110. Here's why. Casino ATMs are one of the most predatory and financially damaging business practices used by casinos and they were expressly prohibited when the casino law was signed by Governor Deval Patrick. The ban on ATMs was a core part of the political narrative that Patrick and other casino sponsors sold the public: "We're going to do casinos right, better than everyone else ...

The service will increase tourism here at home while connecting our residents and businesses with the emerging opportunities in Mexico.” Boston is currently the largest U.S. to Mexico City origin and destination market without nonstop service.

Nigeria Under Siege: U.S. Group Calls For America’s Help Against Boko Haram, Corruption May, 10 2014, The Edo United For Homeland Empowerment, a United States-based human rights group, has called on the U.S. government to initiate international efforts to help Nigeria fight terrorism and kidnapping. In a petition sent to the US government, the organization also appealed to the US to pressure the Nigerian government to fight institutional corruption. In a statement issued from its Boston, MA headquarters, the group asserted that corruption “not only deprives the Nigerian masses of their rights to decent lives, but also constantly militates against effective action by the [Nigerian] authorities.” It demanded sanctions against corrupt public office holders in Nigeria. The organization described Boko Haram’s recent abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State as “insane and barbaric,” adding, “the threat by the sect to sell the innocent girls must be taken seriously.” It recal ...

D.W.L The Food and Drug Administration recently approved a controversial new painkiller called Zohydro ER that both federal and state lawmakers believe is destined to become a scourge on society; a tightened noose already around the necks of those struggling with prescription opiate addiction. However, FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg stands by her decision to give the drug its wings, saying that America needs more treatment options for those people living in pain. The drug has been referred to as “heroin in a capsule,” and ever since it was approved last October, several legislators and medical experts have emerged to protest the extended-release hydrocodone pill from being marketed in the United States. Many believe the FDA should withdraw its approval of the drug, in an effort to keep the country from spiraling further into a prescription painkiller epidemic. Recent reports indicate that overdoses from prescription medications have continued to soar in the United States throughout the past decade, ...

Looking forward to taking the girls to The Governor's Holiday Party tonight. Found it really annoying when Haley would quote Governor Deval Patrick saying, " Finish what you started" with regards to laundry and housework, but overall great message! ;)
Excellent op-ed by Farah Stockman in today's Boston Globe questioning whether the Boston City Council should approve a 25% pay raise for Boston police over six years: Here’s a fun fact that didn’t come up in yesterday’s City Council hearing: 141 cops in Boston earned a bigger paycheck than the mayor did last year. That’s right. Mayor Menino earns $175,000. If you count base pay, the Quinn Bill education bonus, details, and overtime, 141 cops earned more. Another fact: Nearly a third of all Boston police officers earned more than Governor Deval Patrick. The governor earned $137,000 last year. About 600 cops took home more. No one disputes that police officers, many of whom work long hours and face danger in their jobs, deserve to be well-paid for what they do. But take a good look at police salaries, and you’ll find that they already are. Boston police officers are among the best-paid public employees, not only in the city, but in the country. Eighty-six earned more than Secretary of State John K ...

Below is an email from Pat Fiero, a MoveOn member in Leverett, Massachusetts. Pat started a petition on the MoveOn website, where anyone can start their own online petition. Dear Massachusetts MoveOn member, The Food and Drug Administration does not require safety testing of new genetically modified foods (GMOs). Instead, they rely on corporations' profits from their sale of such foods to determine GMOs' safety for us. Contrary to industry claims, GMOs have not been proven safe, and a growing body of independent, peer-reviewed studies have linked their consumption to allergies, infertility, immune system problems, gastrointestinal disruption, cancer, and a host of other diseases. GMO crops can easily contaminate non-GMO crops, threatening organic agriculture. Moreover, their use is linked to increases in toxic pesticide use and the emergence of "superweeds." Further, the absence of labeling on GMOs prohibits those with specific ethical or religious practices from making informed food choices. More than 60 ...

Don't want to be a downer, but, given the karma generated disrespecting Wes Welker, I'm thinking the Pats go 6 and 10, Brady doesn't finish the year, Gronk has yet another surgery that lays him up until 2014 (if he doesn't get a groin strain from Bibi Jones,) Kraft DOESN'T get his ring back from Vladimir "I could kill a guy with this ring" Putin (Dracula was also named Vladimir), Tebow takes over after the Bledsoe-esque injury to Tom and has his best season yet, and Hernandez gets life.

In the next couple of months two U.S. Senate seats will be decided by special elections in Massachusetts & New Jersery. With the current 100 congressional members divided by Democrat (51 seats)Republican (47 seats)Other Parties: 1 Independent; 1 Independent Democrat (both caucus with the Democrats). Will the elections give democrats a larger margin in the Senate or will the political divide deepen? Join me tomorrow morning for a conversation about the upcoming special elections and learn why Oregon should care? The 2013 United States Senate special election in Massachusetts will be held on June 25, 2013, in order to fill the Massachusetts Class II United States Senate seat for the remainder of the term ending January 3, 2015.

Standing ovation for Governor Deval Patrick's leadership in water innovation
Representative Jeffrey Sánchez should be ASHAMED of himself for supporting the "welfare reform" bill that is about to pass the Massachusetts House. This bill places even more hurdles in front of the most vulnerable part of our population (including a great deal of his constituents here in Jamaica Plain) to solve ... what exactly? "Welfare fraud" which constitutes less than a tenth of a percent of the EBT budget? This bill would be a doubling-down on the failed welfare "reform" policies instituted in the 90's at the federal level, and only perpetuates the systemic discrimination that people in poverty face in Massachusetts and American culture at large. Oh, and Representative Sanchez is a Democrat, along with 113 other Democrats supporting this ludicrous plan. Jamaica Plain and Massachusetts deserve more progressive leadership in the legislature. For shame, Mr. Sanchez. For shame, Massachusetts Democrats. I call on Governor Deval Patrick to veto this ridiculous bill.
"Great meeting today with Governor Deval Patrick. The Governor listened intently and said he will be on the...
