Therese Murray President of the Senate. D Plymouth will be asked to help Falmouth residents with the Town of Falmouth ,Wind 1 turbine. Murray says she has her concerns over the health issues reported by Falmouth residents.

Residents plan to ask the Falmouth Select Board tonight to have the senate president mitigate the commercial wind turbine that has been sixteen months of torture to the residents around the wind turbine. The poor siting of the wind turbine has brought national attention to Massachusetts and Town of Falmouth .

It's time to tell the public the "deal" that the Town of Falmouth got on these turbines ! The semi-quasi state agency ,MTC ,was stuck with 5.2 million dollars worth of commercial wind turbines .The turbines were in a warehouse in Texas at over $3000.00 per month rent and the monoples were somewhere in Canada .

Yes it was embarrassing to six figure MTC and state officials . It appears that federal stimulus funds were used through the state and the Town of Falmouth to purchase the two turbines from the MTC .This got the two turbines off the MTC books with our federal stimulus funds -you all know the drill !

The bottom line here is siting was too close to residential homes. Noise and Shadow Flicker and later Wind Turbine Syndrome. The residents of Falmouth and residents in other communities should file class action litigation for the loss of property rights and fair rental value of their homes ! Stop the irresponsible siting of commercial wind turbines in our back yards !

The Massachusetts Constitution affirms the dignity and equality of all individuals. It forbids the creation of second-class citizens. The state through its semi quasi state agency and the cities and towns along with the agenda of the current governor are creating a second class group of citizens with the poor siting of commercial wind turbines.

The wind turbine fray is sparking class warfare. Time after time the blue collar section of town after town has been selected to lose their property rights for the good of all the others in town.

We feel bewildered and betrayed by our own government, which is maliciously trying to steal our land through the poor siting of commercial wind turbines. We have lost our democratic rights and have become second class citizens, facing the theft of our land through regulation. Massachusetts State law forbids the creation of second-class citizens

Torture Memo : The Beatings Continue -A crucifixion is someting that is very difficult or harrowing experience, especially one lasting a long time and that's what these town owned turbines are doing to these residents who live around them! These people are being tortured and the Town of Falmouth through it's town meeting members and select board are continuing the beatings until further notice.
