"MassGOP are utterly useless, and I know first hand."
Isnt it too easy to blame and bash the local GOP organizations?
Truth is, they are up against it! The crooked Bulger Democratic machine is as strong as ever: the liberal Globe and local media, the massive public sector and their crooked unions, they mercilessly crush opponents. Amazing that Scott Brown got elected at all, once.
Many tens of thousands of Republicans and potential GOP voters who work in the "dreaded" private sector have fled the moonbat paradise (like me). Only Howie Carr is left, to provide comic relief.
Well..hang on. This last Senate election was really Brown's to lose. He was very popular and had overwhelming support among independents ( who make up the bulk of MA voters). He handled his campaign against Warren about as badly as he could. Added to that..he then had a record to defend...a record which included his voting for the Blunt amendment. This really hurt him with female voters.
MA has never been a GOP state...and the employment numbers don't support your claim that people are fleeing "moonbat paradise".
Of course..you understand that what you're really saying is that 10k GOP voters decided to cut and run..rather than build their party up and do the hard..grassroots work needed to become a force for change. If you are right in your statement then the MA GOP got exactly what it deserved.
Did you notice Mass. lost a Congressional district from the latest census? Why might that be?
Relocating to another state for a better job, better quality of life, chance to buy a house at reasonable prices, is not a "cut and run"....what I am saying is hardworking private sector family -focused folks, more likely to vote GOP, have been leaving Mass for greener pastures for a while. Mass. has an gynormous (mostly useless) public sector and a large growing number of government dependents, which is the Democratic base.
"The Blunt amendment" ? Surely you jest..what a wacky rationale given for Scott Brown losing...
It is the same old song and dance.... liberals and the Globe (but I repeat myself) will praise Gabriel Gomez but of course , they build him up to knock him down...they will find some supposed gaffe or other 'scandal' hyped by the Globe ...ignoring the Dem Ed Markey's century old record of being a worthless party hack...
Wash, rinse and repeat..that is how Mass. ends up with such an embarassing clown car of Congressmen and Senators..
What a load of baloney.
I guess it's just a coincidence that redneck loser states take more in federal tax money than they contribute.
It must be a coincidence that life expectency in redneck states is almost a decade less than the better off liberal states.
It's just a coincidence that the technology hubs are located in Mass and CA.
The only thing the rednecks can do is take money from the gov't and blame the gov't for giving it to them.
Sorry you didn't have the capacity to compete in a truly innovative environment such as New England but don't blame us because you have to ride the short bus to work.
An example of how educated the redneck states are:
In 2008, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed the “Louisiana Science Education Act” into law. This Orwellian-named bit of legislation was an outrageous attempt to allow creationism to be taught in schools. Jindal has essentially admitted as much.
Outrageous, yes. Damaging to the state, yes. Unconstitutional, absolutely. But it passed.
Since then, Zack Kopplin (a 19-year-old Rice University student) has been fighting to get it repealed. He’s had a lot of help: Louisiana State Senator Karen Carter Peterson (D-New Orleans), 78 Nobel laureates, the city council of New Orleans, and Slate magazine. And many more, including me (many many many times). Even the conservative Thomas B. Fordham Institute thinks it’s a terrible law. Because it is.
But every time a bill is put forth to repeal this awful law, it fails. Kopplin and his team tried again—for the third time—last week. And Louisiana politicians decided, once again, that their personal beliefs trump the United States Constitution.
The repeal failed. The law stands.
But there’s more. Here’s why one legislator voted against the repeal, and, well, it’s a stunner. I hope your desk has a padded top, because otherwise your forehead is going to hurt a lot:
Sen. Elbert Guillory, D-Opelousas, said he had reservations with repealing the act after a spiritual healer correctly diagnosed a specific medical ailment he had. He said he thought repealing the act could "lock the door on being able to view ideas from many places, concepts from many cultures."
“Yet if I closed my mind when I saw this man—in the dust, throwing some bones on the ground, semi-clothed—if I had closed him off and just said, ‘That's not science. I'm not going to see this doctor,’ I would have shut off a very good experience for myself,” Guillory said.
You can fix uneducated, even some types of ignorance, but you just can't can't fix redneck stupid.
