    I agree with schmangell -- those people take themselves waaaaay to seriously, and a little dose of reality is good for them.

    I'm far from being an expert about football, but I did see one local analyst who said the Patriots need more emotion. The robotic, 'workmanlike' approach works during the regular season, but the playo more »

    The whole thing is ridiculous and out of focus. I was always puzzled why 'Little Black Sambo' was banned forever -- I seem to vaguely remember that Sambo actually out-thought the tigers by making them more »

    This tax package is being financed 100% by adding to the federal deficit (ie. money from China) - and it is packed full of earmark, pork spending that is the result of votes being bought. The nitwits more »

    To the (very few) negative posters - any signing has it's risks, and doesn't guarantee a championship, however, it looks as though it will be a fun summer in Boston... more »

    I agree with the poster who mentioned Ethier - a close friend of Petroia and he has indicated he would like to come to Boston, especially after visiting there last summer. You know Ellsbury is going t more »

    The increase to the deficit is worrisome, for sure. However, growing the economy has to account for a large part of any deficit reduction plan, and that's where the tax cuts come in. The whole thing i more »

    I agree with the poster who mentioned no papertrail -- I re-financed my mortgage at the end of September, and it was sold three times by November, yet is still 'serviced' by the first company that bou more »

    I agree with the poster who mentioned Andre Ethier - a very close friend of Pedroia. I've heard that he would love to come to the Red Sox, particularly after his visit there last summer. Also, from ev more »

    What are members of Congress doing for their fair share? After all, they are the ones who created the deficit, it seems as though they should make some 'sacrifices' as well. more »

    A vote deploring his behavior, a fine, and loss of privileges - are you kidding? This man is a perfect example of someone who has been in Congress way, way, way too long, so long that he doesn't even more »

    Whoever signs Beltre to the huge contract that he'll get will be paying for the the past year. When he has that contract, who knows how hard he'll play for however long? I agree with the posters who s more »

    I despised George Bush as much as anyone, but he did ask Barney Frank several times about the stability of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and was told that everything was fine. Yes, you most certainly ca more »

    I'm always amazed at how the left is so indulgent of Islam, a religion that continually oppresses, tortures and murders women, from forcing them to cover their heads, to stoning them for trivial reaso more »

    I keep saying this, but it's the old Tip O'Neil quote, 'People hate Congress but love their Congressman'. Barney Frank is a poster child for term limits, yet his constituents have made it so easy for more »

    Just one thought about insurance company premiums -- insurance companies are not non-profit organizations, they are businesses with stockholders to answer to just like any other corporation. And don't more »

    A subsequent problem has been the failure of Congress to enact any meaningful financial reform to avoid these problems in the future. Wall Street basically owns Congress, so if anyone thinks the anemi more »

    As Tip O'Neil said, 'People hate Congress but love their Congressman' -- I have no doubt that Barney will win his election because his constituents think he has power. Yet another argument for term li more »

    I have a problem with how Islam degrades women, from forcing them to cover their heads, to honor killings and all the nasty things in between, but it appears that this is acceptable to alot of people, more »

    I recently read an article about an illegal immigrant in Atlanta who was complaining because there are no Spanish speaking teachers in her son's school, so it was difficult for her to know how her son more »

    The Democrats and Republicans in Congress may differ in philosophy, but this article just proves that they are all self-serving, dishonest, and sleazy. I hope their constituents stay strong and don't more »

    You have to look past the immediate thought that the wealthiest simply deserve to have their taxes increased. Many in that tax bracket are small to mid-size business owners whose finances are closely more »
