Better off without leaders like these

Paul Ryan? Are you kidding me? Paul Ryan-o is more like it, Ryan-o as in RINO.   Republican in Name Only.   All these fools were running around Capitol Hill yesterday like Chicken Littles, elbowing one another out of the way to get to their Fox liveshots. The sky is falling, the sky is falling! Rep. Peter King, RINO-NY, actually said yesterday, “People are crying.”   Get a grip, pal. There are worse things than having nobody at the top. Having Barack Obama at the top comes immediately to mind.   Last week, John Boehner got a bad ice cube and decided to spend more time with his bartender, So […]

Patchy Kennedy memories

I understand that Patches Kennedy’s book is a memoir, so he can basically write whatever he wants. But seriously, if the former Rhode Island congressman was as loaded as he claims he was for as long as he obviously was, how much can the reader really trust any of his recollections?   It must suck to be Patches Kennedy. Even his own mommy dearest has thrown him under the ’67 Oldsmobile Delmont, in the Kennedy family’s personal fanzine, telling the Globe that she knew nothing about her son’s new book, hasn’t read it, etc. etc.   They were soooo close, father and son. Like on Easter Sunday 1991, when they […]

Dems line up to kiss thugs’ pinky rings … big surprise!

Why won’t the Massachusetts Democratic Party denounce Teamsters Local 25 and its racist, homophobic war against women?   Professional courtesy.   You were expecting maybe Rep. Mike Capuano to take a stand against violent gangsterism?   This is the guy who once exhorted a pinky-ring rally of business agents, assorted legbreakers and enforcers, “Get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”   Now he says that “anybody who paints (with) that kind of broad brush is making a humongous mistake.”   Hey, Capuano, did you make a mistake back in Powderhouse Park in 1993 when you were the mayor of Somerville and you threatened to beat […]

Democratic female politicians ignore Teamsters’ ‘War Against Women’

Are the pinky-ring union thugs of Teamster Local 25 in Charlestown engaged in a War Against Women?   Well, last year, according to the feds, at least four of the union’s enforcers attempted to shakedown a reality TV show, “Top Chef,” whose star is a woman named Padma Lakshmi, the ex-wife of Salman Rushdie.   She survived Muslim terrorists, only to come to Boston and be set upon by Democrat terrorists who called her, among other things, a “bleepin’ whore.” The plug uglies also threatened to “break her face.”   According to the indictment, these loyal Democrats “yelled profanities and racial and homophobic slurs at the Crew and others.”   […]

A few more EBT ‘anecdotes’

Are there any criminals left out there who aren’t on welfare?   And not just on welfare, but robbing welfare. It’s another one of Obama’s “fundamental transformations” of America, I guess. Why stick up a bank when you can run a scam with EBT cards? You don’t have to worry about security cameras, red-dye packs, hidden alarms, a getaway car or getting shot by the cops. And the return – amazing!   Just ask Vida Ofori Causey of Worcester. She pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to stealing “approximately $3,638,900.88 in fraudulent EBT transactions and SNAP benefits” between 2010 and 2014 at her convenience store on Main Street in Worcester.

Only small fry canned in Mass.

How many movies have you seen where the slightly dissipated hero cop sets out alone to stop an anonymous crime lord, often a respectable citizen, maybe even a politician, known only as “Mr. Big?”   It’s different here in Massachusetts – our cops are always on the prowl not for Mr. Big, but for “Mr. Small.” Why go after Mr. Big? He could retaliate, come after your job or your family or your pension. Better to chase the miscreants who can’t pull strings to save themselves from a good long stretch in the can.   The latest example of this is ex-Rep. John George, who moved Wednesday from Dartmouth to […]
