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 ...

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).

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.

Uhuru Kenyatta, was declared president in suspicious circumstances which culminated in a Supreme Court case. Wary of a break out of any future genocide in Kenya, the architects of this new effort are in the formative stages of petitioning President Obama and Governor Deval patrick to help them obtain the contents detailing President Uhuru’s life while he was at Amherst.

British Prime Minister David Cameron is reported to have declined a photo-op with Uhuru, an ICC inductee.

Here is another example of such ignore news: U.S. authorities are still piecing together how the two brothers behind April's Boston Marathon bombing -- Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev -- became Islamic terrorists. Tamerlan had traveled to al Qaeda hotbeds in southern Russia, where authorities believe he may have met with known jihadists. Closer to home, he and his brother attended a Boston-area mosque with radical ties. "The fact is that these fellows attended, blocks from their house, a radical mosque that has been the center of controversy in Boston for 10 years," said Charles Jacobs, who heads Americans for Peace and Tolerance, a group that has closely monitored Islamic radicalism in the Boston area. Jacobs told CBN News the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge has seen convicted Islamic terrorists pass through its doors. "The founder of that mosque, blocks from where the Tsarnaevs lived and where they prayed, was Abdulrahman Alamoudi," he said. "He is the model of deception in America ...

Yesterday morning I had the honor of participating in a "Portfolio" presentation panel for students that will be graduating from Young Achievers Pilot School in Boston. This was by far a more fulfilling experience than proctoring the MCAS which I had to do at a former school. I commented to the other panelist and to the students, who by the way did an excellent job in their presentations, that it would be so helpful if our Governor would consider participating in these presentations, where students have to showcase what they have learned, as well as defend their work in front of a panel of teachers, family member, student and community advocate. By doing so the Governor would be able to appreciate alternative forms of assessment. These assessments have been proven to be better indicators of a student academic achievement than the one size fits all bubble filler. Governor Deval Patrick and Legislators who are in the midst of deciding the fate of the state mandated standardized tests, please consider lo ...

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick this week admitted to celebrating the capture of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects by getting drunk. According to a Boston Herald report, the governor was speaking to a Cambridge-area marketing company this week when he admitted how tremendously relieved he was when Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured on April 19. Patrick stated that he had received lots of criticism (even from President Obama) for locking down parts of Boston into what was essentially martial law while the search for Tsarnaev was ongoing. Patrick stated that after the suspect was caught, he retreated to his rural home in he Berkshires. There, he had dinner alone at a local restaurant, seated far from other customers to read a book on his tablet. The restaurant’s owner, he stated, kept bringing him “things to drink as a celebration.” Patrick admitted that by the end of his meal he was “quite drunk.” As part of the mini-confessional, Patrick also admitted that his “shelter in place” order fo ...

Democrat governor wants elected official to pay to see EBT files By Boston Herald (MA) June 6, 2013 6:40 am Republican state Rep. Shaunna O'Connell -- stonewalled for months by the Patrick administration over her demand for a full accounting on welfare recipients with huge EBT card balances -- is now being told to fork over $800 if she wants the public data. "I have never heard of such a thing, as a legislator," O'Connell (R-Taunton) told the Herald last night, vowing to pay the fee even as she slammed the Department of Transitional Assistance for stalling her. "I think they owe this information, not just to me but to the taxpayers," she said. Shocked by a receipt showing one EBT user carrying a $7,000 balance, O'Connell in January first requested months worth of food stamp and cash benefit balances from the DTA. But after state officials repeatedly ignored her, she twice scaled back her request, including in an April letter asking for all balances from August, September and November 2012, and January thr ...

Two days ago the New Jersey Office of Legislative Services issued an opinion saying the newly appointed U.S. Senator could serve until November of 2014, instead of five months this year. However, Gov. Chris Christie announced yesterday that a special election will be held this October. Christie's decision was a real disappointment for the GOP. Why did he do it? Because he knew New Jersey has one of the most liberal state Supreme Courts in the country, and they were certain to call for an election this year. We do not know the identity of the GOP Senate nominee, but this will be a difficult race.

So yesterday was one of the most incredible days of my life! What an honor to literally be apart of The Ancient & Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts 375th annual ceremony in Boston Common. The original ceremony took place on the first Monday in June back in 1638, when the Company was founded. Now, every year on the first Monday in June, they continue the tradition. The Lincoln Minute Men marched along with the Ancients and many other Military companies from all over the world in the parade and we got to fire out muskets in the streets of Boston! We all filed into the Boston Common for the ceremony which our Governor Deval Patrick even attended! After the ceremony, we were invited to attend the 375th Anniversary banquet at the fancy Park Plaza Hotel's Grand Ballroom in Boston - I was lucky enough to wine and dine with hundreds of Generals, Colonel's and important Military figures from around the world. What an honor! They treated us like one of their own. In-Be-tween the events, some of the other ...

Governor Deval Patrick still pushing his tax proposal trying to belittle Representatives and Senators who disagree with his tax hikes. He told the public higher ed students to “engage with members of the Legislature who are nervous and uncomfortable about the so-called tax vote. Remind them that taxes are the price of civilization.” “There are going to be people who are deeply concerned that this vote may jeopardize their reelection. That is a political reality for a lot of good people in this building. Don’t belittle that,” Patrick added. Governor, it is not about being nervous, uncomfortable or being concerned about jeopardizing my re-election. THE PEOPLE CAN NOT AFFORD IT! Don't insult me and my colleagues who will stand up for the middle class who are just trying to get by!!

Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal (La.) on Sunday proposed delay the implementation of President Obama’s healthcare reform law to help offset the looming sequester cuts. “The president needs to step up to the plate and say to Congress, 'Here's how you can cut $85 billion."' I've got an idea for him,” said Jindal on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Just delay the Medicaid expansions, delay the health care exchanges so they can work with states on waivers, on flexibility. You could save tens of billions of dollars there by-- and you're not even cutting a program that's started yet. Just delay it for a few years.” Jindal has been a strong critic of the president’s signature healthcare reform bill, and has said his state will not participate in the law’s Medicaid expansion. The Louisiana governor’s comments come ahead of the $85 billion in across-the-board sequester cuts set to take effect on Friday. President Obama has made a public push to pressure GOP lawmakers into backing a plan to offset the au ...
From the Boston Globe: More than 1,000 high school students from across Massachusetts marched from Faneuil Hall to the State House Thursday, calling for increased funding for youth jobs and asking that more companies create summer positions for teens. “This is important for me to be here, begging these legislators for more jobs, because we are the future,” said Sheraine Blake, 18, a senior at the Boston Community Leadership Academy, as she stood on the State House steps. “And to save kids from being out on the street and doing things they shouldn’t be doing, why not open up more jobs for us?” “It will cut down on drugs and all the violence,” she added. The students, who hailed from at least a dozen cities and towns, chanted “We want jobs” as they wound through downtown on their way to the State House. Once there, they were briefed on how to approach elected officials about their concerns. State Representative Elizabeth A. “Liz” Malia, a Democrat who represents Jamaica Plain, met with ...

South Station (Boston, MA) critical component in Patrick transportation plan When South Station opened in 1899, it had 28 tracks that sprawled from Atlantic Avenue to Fort Point Channel. Today, with only 13 tracks, trains idle outside the station while they wait for other trains to vacate berths, causing maddening delays. Governor Deval Patrick wants to change that with an $850 million South Station expansion project, one of the major components of his sweeping transportation plan that includes projects across the state costing billions.

This morning on Meet the Press, a program that used to actually be relevant before it became just an extension of the liberal extremists, Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal just kicked the butts of Massachusetts’ Governor Deval Patrick and David Gregory and put them in their places. As usual, Gregory and his shill (I mean liberal guest) tried tag teaming the conservative and still, were soundly made to look silly, completely partisan AND uninformed. Gregory has ruined what used to be an impactful and sound informational forum and turned it into nothing more than a clown show.

Wherever you stand on the 2nd Amendment and Bill of Rights, President Obama, Governor Deval Patrick and other politicians would do themselves a favor by watching the crowd reaction at the Westford MA, town meeting. The crowd cheered when the selectmen unanimously reversed their earlier move to attempt a town weapons restriction. Politically, this issue is a losing one for democrats. President Clinton pointed this out when he mentioned that a huge number of people see the 2nd Amendment of Bill of Rights as a single voting issue. To be accurate, we could take this a step further and note that millions of people are willing to DIE for this right. A large number of sheriffs have written to President Obama stating that they will not only not enforce firearms bans, but they will arrest Federal agents who enter their state in an attempt to do so.

Deval Patrick proposes huge tax increase for home sellers. See below.: Huge tax hit coming for home sellers Just when you thought it was safe to sell your home again, along comes our cash-strapped state government to mess things up! Gov. Deval Patrick's bevy of proposed tax hikes includes plans to tax whatever gains home sellers manage to eke out in a real estate market just starting to turn around. The governor's proposed state budget includes plans to forced home sellers to cough up more than $239 million with a 6.25 percent tax on home-sale gains. That could mean a tax hit of $4,256 for the average seller. And that number could top $30,000 for a married couple who sells their home after accruing decades of gains worth a half a million or more. In fact, fair or not, the proposal has already earned the governor a rather unfortunate nickname on the comment board of this blog - "Governor Devalue." Currently, sellers are spared paying taxes on up to $250,000 in gains from the sale of a house, a number that ...

"Once you take personal responsibility for your choices, once you let your values lead you, the journey itself – can be wondrous. Eventually you’ll connect with those who share your vision…and that is reward enough.” -Governor Deval Patrick
Leave to our Illustrious Governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick with his new tax plan. He wants to increase they Income Tax from 5.25% to 6.25%, and drop the Sale Tax from 6.25% to 4.25%. He would also eliminate 44 Tax Deductions on Income Tax. Here is how it was put it. Patrick has proposed raising the income tax to 6.25 percent and lowering the sales tax to 4.5 percent. Combined with other measures to alter the tax code, Shor said half of Massachusetts residents would see no change or a reduction in their tax burden, while wealthier residents would pay more. Let translate. If you work we are going to take more money from you if you don't work and are on welfare and don't pay Income Tax, we are going give you even a better free ride. Half of Massachusetts residents would see no change, I wonder which Half!
In today's Boston Globe there was a listing of highest state salaries - 4th highest goes to Derek Kellogg the basketball coach at UMASS at $628,624 a year. 9th highest goes to Charles Molnar, the football coach at UMASS at $401,250 a year. UMASS holds all the top 10 positions. Deval Patrick, the Governor of MA who makes $139,832, didn't even crack the top 1,500 state salaries. Sports coaches making more than the Governor and state police? I have three boys. Perhaps I need to encourage them to all be Division I coaches.

It is time that we had a new governor in this state. Deval Patrick is yet again reducing the amount of health care insurance that we have. More money and less benefits. Now our insurance will go up another $1000 a year with no increase in coverage. My insurance GIC doesn't pay *** and frankly any hospital or health care bill I have such be forwarded directly to the Governor's office! Let them pay my bill.
Who spent 35 million dollars tring to get re-elected to be in the 113 congress that started 6 weeks ago on 1/3/2013 but now claims he does not want to be part of the problem that is congress since jan 3rd because before that he wanted to be our Senator for 6 years. Are you as confused as I am about this claim? But now he has the perfect job for him he claims, being a talking head and preaching to his choir on The FOX channel. maybe he will get a cameo on the Simpsons? The Massachusettes darling Scott (I changed my mind) Brown. LOL

Politics is like a box of chocolates -- left out in the summer sun. This story could have come from papal intrigue in early church history or the House of Borgia. Senate Democrats can't do the right things because incumbents, including Arkansas's Mark Pryor, risk being defeated on issues such as gun control and immigration. The Senate majority is at risk, in other words. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi now have to maneuver stealthily to protect vulnerable Democrats in gun-crazy states -- like Arkansas. • By Paul West, Washington Bureau Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON — Action in Washington over the next few months on gun control, immigration and fiscal policy will set the stage for a fierce midterm election battle next year, with control of Congress the ultimate prize. Republicans are expected to keep their majority in the House, and history would suggest they might expand their numbers in the sixth year of a two-term presidency. But the Democrats' hold on the Senate is at risk, with competitive 2014 contest ...
Massachusetts and eight other Northeast states are nearly halving the amount of carbon dioxide power plants are allowed to emit – a dramatic reduction that is expected to bring in hundreds of millions of dollars to the state while combating global warming.
An old blizzard fighter like me takes weather warnings witha grain of salt. After the "Big One" in 1966, nothing bothers me much anymore. But. in Taxachusetts, it's another matter altogether. Governor Deval Patrick has pushed the Commonwealth's "Official Panic Button" (kept in the basement of the Old North Church). Women are urged to tear their petticoats into bandages, every SUV in the state has been drawn into a gigantic circle and babies are being floated down the Charles River in little reed boats (just like baby Moses was). The state's one remaining functional snowplow has been rescued from mothballed storage and the Mass State Police are desperately searching for what they term "that plow thingy that goes on the front". Dontcha just love it when flatlanders panic? I do.
Coalition Director Terry Moran accepts the Visionary Award on behalf of Governor Deval Patrick
Nobody sees the elephant in the living room???!!! O.K. I'm not defending the "teflon Governor" Deval Patrick as I really believe when you're in a position like that, the first question you should ask before giving any crony a job is "do you have skeletons in your closet that are going to come back and bite my *** " "You don't have to tell me what they are, but if they show up, I'll make sure you're persecuted to the full extent of the law." Man he has a lot of crooked friends. I don't think even I have that many, but then again, I'm not sure my friends have ever been given enough power to pad their expense accounts and engage in nepotism. That being said, how many here (raise your hands) are unaware that town, city, state and federal governments have yearly budgets. Part of that is to allocate x amount of dollars for "office supplies." Now if you're allowed, say $10K and you only spend $8K, then the next year, they won't give you $10K. So at the end of the year if there is money left over, bosses tell peo ...
Deval Patrick, our company is "AT the Ready" for the storm. You best have your plows, salt trucks, etc, "AT the Ready" too. Or don't complain when we can't get to work or even get down someone's street to restore service. Last time we have this much snow coming, our people actually had to shovel their way to get to people's houses (no lie). The Commonwealth better have their act together this time around.
It scares me knowing that most of these kids in high school now are going to be able to vote next election... Most predict a woman: Elizabet Warren (Not gonna happen) I predict: Deval Patrick (Democrat; Governor of Mass.) ...smh, shouldn't be, but it will be...
Second chance for Patrick nominee for judgeship BOSTON — Gov. Deval Patrick is expected this week to renominate Shannon Frison, associate justice of the Boston Municipal Court to be a trial judge in the Superior Court. New Governor’s Councillors Robert L. Jubinville of Milton and Michael Albano of Longmeadow have discovered that misinformation sabotaged her nomination in December. Her nomination was tabled after the governor and Council received reports from other judges that she did not help out with busy sessions and that other judges had to take on her work when she went out on military leave. Jubinville said Frison got "a raw deal” based on 'blatantly false' allegations. He said she has never taken a day off the bench for military work and does take on extra work when needed. Frison has served as an officer and lawyer in the U.S. Marine Corps, where she took criminal and civil litigation assignments in Hawaii and North Carolina. She was a senior associate at Dwyer and Collora. Frison graduated f ...
