Mike Capuano: A Taxpayer’s Worst Nightmare

November 13, 2009

Click on the link below to hear US Senate Candidate Mike Capuano tell in his own words how he plans to stick it to Massachusetts taxpayers if they are stupid enough to vote for him.

With phrases like “a public health care option financed by tax increases” and  “the only entity capable of creating jobs is the federal government” and “we need a large, MASSIVE infusion of federal money,” Capuano at least makes no bones about his typical tax-and-spend liberal Democratic ideology.

Be afraid, taxpayers. Be very afraid.

 

Barney Frank present when partner bagged for pot possession

November 9, 2009

Another proud, proud moment for the Mass. Congressional delegation! I guess we should be glad that this time it doesn’t involve underage pages or operating a prostitution ring out of a congressman’s townhouse.
From Fox News:

“Rep. Barney Frank admitted Friday that he was sitting on the porch of his partner’s Maine home when police came to arrest his partner for marijuana possession. Frank, responding to new reports that he was present during the Aug. 2007 arrest of James Ready, said in a statement he was unaware Ready had marijuana plants.

According to a police report obtained by MyFoxBoston, Maine police arrested and charged James Ready with marijuana possession, cultivation and use of drug paraphernalia. He pleaded guilty to civil possession and paid a fine. The remaining charges were dismissed last year. Frank was not charged. Frank is the author of a medical marijuana bill that would outlaw the prosecution of persons who use marijuana for medicinal purposes.”

Of course, the real question is, why are we just learning about this now?

Roos victory proves every vote counts!

November 4, 2009

Karl Roos claimed the third seat on the School Committee in last night’s election — taking the slot by just one vote.

Roos’ victory proves once again that oft-disputed belief that every vote counts. It also confirms that, contrary to liberal dogma, voters will support well-qualified, dedicated candidates regardless of party affiliation when given the chance to meet and compare candidates.

Informed, engaged voters are vital to the success and survival of democracy. Think about it: Yesterday, with a heated mayor’s race and several contested ward seats, only about 50 percent of registered voters exercised their right to vote. Just imagine what we could accomplish if the other 50 percent made an effort to take part, too…
