" JUSTICE FOR ALL "

One question that rises every time that there is an administration change, should the outgoing gang be held responsible and liable for their wrongdoings? If our System is based on moral, ethical and legal responsibility then yes they should be accountable for their actions. All to often we see those that we trusted with upholding our values just slide away without any repercussions for their actions. I submit that if they were made to be legally accountable, with out the back door pardon, than there would be a much cleaner government. What do you think?

" "WE THE PEOPLE" ARE SPEAKING UP - FINALLY "

If only you had given us just a little something.
If only you hadn't trashed our sacred documents.
if only you had looked out for our well being just a smidgen.
If only you hadn't been so damn arrogant.
If only you had tried to be a President and not a King.
If only you had practiced giving instead of taking.
If only sharing, not hording, was your agenda.
But no, you chose the black path instead of the golden road and now you are going to reap what you have sown. Good riddance. May we forever look upon this era and administration and party as the pariah we never wish to repeat ever again.
"WE THE PEOPLE" are speaking out loudly and this time you can't trick us with your lies and lawyers and steal our Government!

" WORTH A LOOK SEE "



A look at the side we don't see very much, although I do prefer a raw bloody steak slightly warm!

" DENIAL EQUATES TO MENTAL ILLNESS "

As sure as the sun shines, George W. Bush is mentally retarded. Anyone that still believes, as he does, that he is in control and has the right answers to our problems, surely is in need of our medical institutions.

" WORDS CAN NOT DESCRIBE THE BLATANT GRAB FOR POWER "



Is THIS what it is all about? A grab for more absolute power? It boggles the mind.

Go ahead you nitwit and vote Republican...or better yet....ram a rusty nail in your eye! Or even better yet...stuff a shotgun barrel in your mouth and blow your freakin head off because your brain is already dead anyway and you will fit right in!

" NIXON ALIVE AND WELL "

Here we go again..... The Republicans are so desperate that they are reverting to their old illegal tactics again. Didn't we see this movie before? The Republican Party is so not American and so not for the "PEOPLE".
And as for McCan't and his pick for VP, what a joke. Does he think that we are that stupid? I guess he does. 42% of the people are suffering from stupidity, that is scary, but 48% of us are not, that is encouraging! Desperation makes you do strange things.
NEWS FLASH...........Our King George has just blamed the Democrats for all his problems and especially for the high gas prices. Wow, that takes a big set of balls! I suppose in his little pea brain if you just blame someone else for your mistakes and deny you have anything to do with it, than you are no longer answerable for them. Now that's something to teach our children..... Way to go Georgie!
Just one more interesting note...... I find it almost biblical in nature that the Republicans have had to cancel their convention on LABOR DAY. Is GOD trying to tell them something?

"CASINOS ARE A GOOD INVESTMENT FOR THE STATE AND THE TOWN"

The independent report on Casinos gives an A+ to the idea. Although the local newspaper tries to spin the negative aspects, of which are very minor and superficial, the report is proof positive that CASINOS are a good investment for the state and the Town of North Adams. It would be a good idea for John Barrett to try and get in line now.
If Dan Bosley, after reading the report, is still not satisfied and still prejudiced after reading the facts, than he should just step aside and let the people decide for themselves, without his trying to interfere and interject his personal feelings. It is for the good of ALL the people, not just for the good of Dan's feelings!

" HIGH OIL PRICES MAY BE GOOD FOR US "

In the battle between the seller, wanting to make as much profit as is humanly possible, and the buyer, looking for the least expensive product possible, there may just be a win for the American Worker, I mean consumer. We are not considered citizen workers any more, we are only thought of as consumers. Anyway..... I ran across this article in the New York Times and it verified my belief that GATT and NAFTA are no damn good. They only served the interest of greedy industrialist wanting to exploit people for profit. Well it has come back to bite them in the ass. The high cost of oil is bringing them slithering back. It is good news for the American (Mexican?) worker. Maybe again we can say with pride "MADE IN AMERICA BY AMERICAN UNION WORKERS"

" THE EASY WAY OUT "

Help me out with my conclusions to end our economic problems. I know it isn't complicated and filled with fancy innuendos and pie-in-the-sky resolutions, and I am not taking any credit for the idea, but what if we just nationalized our own oil industry, keeping here what we produce here and selling here what we refine here, wouldn't that solve most of what is going on and bring sanity back to oil prices? It seems to me that we are in the mist of a national crisis effecting the whole country and the whole economy. Should a few oil barons and oil company politicians and wall street speculators hold the whole nation hostage, just so they can enhance their bottom line? Ronnie The Rat didn't bat an eye when he nationalized the airline industry and took over the unions........"For the good of the people" Ya right! So what do you think? Are we in deep enough shit yet or should we wait a little longer.......like till this winter?

" CAT FOOD AND CANDLES "

I don't know about you, but I am stocking up on cat food and candles. After going over my bills I have had to face the reality that this coming winter is going to be disastrous. I, as well as the rest of you are going to have to make some very sobering choices. This is not The American Dream I was looking forward to in my later years. The problem is that no matter what you do to try and save, conserve, use an alternate, or relinquish altogether......it still cost you big sums of money with no place to turn for help. So I am stocking up now, before the run starts on cat food (I don't own a cat) and candles and the price goes up any further......What are you doing?

" It's Your Dime! "

A couple of items to rag on this mornin. First and probably the most important is the high cost of oil. I know summer has just begun, but already I am looking ahead to this coming winters heating season, as probably most people are.......... and I am scared shitless! What part of $700 - per fill of propane don't they realize I can't afford? During the heating season I use about two deliveries per month, you do the math! This is headed to a catastrophe for us this winter. The fuel assistance program, (of which I don't use but many many do) is going to be overwhelmed and we are going to have a very serious problem here in our Town. People are going to have to choose between keeping warm or buying food or paying their utility bills............ Is this the American DREAM we herd so much about? Sounds more like the American NIGHTMARE to me!

While we are on the subject of oil let me go on the record here that no matter how much domestic oil we suck outta the ground, or the Republicans spew that we need to drill here to lower the price, it isn't going to lower our price one penny. Why you ask? Because it will go on the market just like all the rest of the oil and be sold to speculators who will sell it at a premium price on the open market. Unless we force the oil companies to refine the oil here and sell it only here (allowing for a realistic profit) nothing is going to change. I believe the time has come to Nationalize our oil industry.

As King George slithers from office and is in his dying days of being the "decider", he has "decided" he wants to bomb Iran. What the hell is wrong with this nit-wit? Ain't 4000+ of our children's lives wasted because of his lies enough for him? The man is as INSANE as Hitler was.

" ACTA - REALLY, REALLY, SCARRY SHIT "

I'd like to thank John for bringing this to us. If this isn't an attempt at one world government control than I don't know what the term means! Dan Bosley take note and what is going on within the state government to combat this kind of takeover and protect the citizens from these people? I would think that your seat on the committees (Economic Development and Emerging Technologies. I am also on an advisory committee for the U.S. Trade Representative) has the power for some input and legislation that would protect the citizens of Massachusetts from this kind of GREED! Dan..... Now is the time for you and the rest of our Representatives to stand up and be counted! We would appreciate your help!

" I BE HAVEIN VISIONS "

Mornin Folks.....Well my visions weren't of the Biblical type, so all you people looking for profound answers to cosmic questions and the date of the second coming, will be disappointed. I think it has more to do with the overloaded subconscious mind trying to make sense of the conscious world data being down loaded to it. Anyway I'm not unique because we all dream. It is just that some dreams are much more real than your every day (night) garden variety type. Those that seem more real than reality and after returning to the awakening state of consciousness are disappointed to realize that it was, after all .....just a dream.
I won't go into the novelistic details, but the underlying theme was "TRUTH, JUSTICE, and RETRIBUTION"! And boy did it feel good! Oh, did I tell you that it was a political vision? Seems that the only real way we can get truth, justice , and retribution from our hired help is in our dreams!.................. Nity-night y'all!

" THE GEORGE BUSH LIE-BRARY "

Hmmm, isn't a library a place you go for TRUE FACTS? A reference source for factual information? Will George's edifice to himself be stuffed to the ceiling with his sanitized version of history, as is Ronnie the Rat's? (he single handily defeated the commies you know!) I suspect the only people that will visit his temple will be those dead enders that still think George is the second coming.....and the brain dead!

" FOOD FOR THOUGHT or THE FEEDING FRENZY "

Mornin Citizens..........Nothing Earth shakin to rag on this AM, although there certainly is much that we could. I have been lately pondering our state of existence in the cosmic sense. How we fit in and how we react to our surroundings and how we got to where we are now. Lets examine where are we now and reflect backward.
The present Human condition seems to be chaotic, vengeful, greedy, self serving, and ultimately destructive. So why do we continue down this path? From where I sit "WE" don't! We seem to be living in the advent horizon of a big black hole where a center force is constantly pulling us in, feeding on our fears and our circumstance for nothing more than their gluttony. The small but all powerful centrist few, that for all practical purposes, control everything everywhere. What is their ultimate goal? What happens when their are no more third world countries with cheep labor? Can "THEY" control the human condition so completely that if needed they have the ability to create a third world labor force? The evidence would seem to suggest that is exactly how it works. Just look at AMERICA! Once the power house of the world. We were the ultimate producers as well as the biggest consumers. We made good products that were the envy of the rest of the world. We took pride in our ability to include everyone in the bounty of the land. What the fuck happened? We were tagged for destruction just because of the mentioned reasons. "WE THE PEOPLE" were becoming to powerful, to independent, and most of all, to uncontrollable. Enter WTO, GATT, NAFTA, FREE TRADE, and THE WORLD ECONOMY!... Exit INDUSTRY,UNIONS, GOOD WAGES, JOB SECURITY, and YOUR WAY OF LIFE AS YOU KNOW IT!.......... This just didn't happen, it was planned!
There are those that say that it is just progress and the cost of doing business in a global economy. Do you really believe that dribble? Progress would be bettering the human condition of our citizens with their fair share of the pie, (Once called "THE AMERICAN DREAM") with sane prices for products, universal health care, free collage so all have the opportunity to advance their knowledge, and the powers that be legislate on behalf of the common good, not under a "CONTRACT WITH (corporate) AMERICA".
So those are my thoughts for today. Now pick up your lunch box and go to work for "THE MAN".....because he owns you now, body and SOUL!

" THE WASHINGTONIAN DICTIONARY "

One thing we can count on Washington to do, and do rather well, is waste our Tax Dollars along with the blood of our children, in the pursuit of monetary gain by greedy Corporations. Another thing they seem to be good at is explaining the reasons why this is so important for your safety. But being that we the citizens are regarded as bumbling idiot uneducated consumers they have decided to make it simple, for the simple masses, to understand.....ergo - "THE WASHINGTONIAN DICTIONARY"
I have obtained a paper-back version that is incomplete and need your help to fill in the blanks. Here is what I have:

1. Shock & Awe - The presentation of American Corporate Wealth's insatiable greed along with complete indifference to how many lives it takes to "Get More"
2. The Surge - An attempt to prolong a failed policy and maintain the flow of tax dollars and lives into the coffers of Big Oil.
3. The Awakening - A reworking of the term, The Surge, but adding pay offs to the enemy to stop them from killing us.
4. The Sons of IRAQ - This one seems to have been stolen from OUR History, "Sons of Liberty" but never mind, who will notice anyway? It just sounds patriotic!
5. Fault Lines - Use to be called, " The Front Lines". But since the enemy has us surrounded, I guess the term is as good as another.

OK... Help me out here folks! Any others you can think of or a different interpretation of my version?

" BETRAEUS..... PART DEUX "

Was anyone surprised? I don't think so. Just more echoes delivered by the Bush Corporation to stall just long enough for Georgie to slip out the back door and dump his trash in the lap of the next President. Time to end the invasion and bring the troops home!

" I WAS JUST THINKING "

MORNIN PEOPLE.....

Last night, as I was settling in my easy chair for the night, from out of no where came thoughts of "OLD NORTH ADAMS". There is something reassuring or an in the womb like feeling when I see old pictures of the town. Sometimes I wish I could time travel back there and hang out on main street for a day or two. Stand in front of the Lafitte Club or by the old buss stop just listening to the hustle and bustle of a vibrant city going about it's daily grind. Anyway.....do any of you old timers remember the guy that was dressed in white and us to travel down town with an old beat-up trash can on wheels? You know...the STREET SWEEPER!
I never gave him much thought when I was growing up in the town, as many probably didn't either, but he was always there. My thoughts were wondering if he was officially on the town payroll or was just carrying on a long forgotten tradition. I would suppose that his job and those that came before him were hired by the town to pick up horse poop. Anyone have any information for me? My wondering mind wants to know!
