Is someone bringing Lynch for his innoculation?
#2 Sep 26, 2013
Let me ask, did you ever have cash parties in exchange for jobs and promotions??
retired with no grey and 80% of your pay plus benefits? Not bad, do you consider that a hand out??

A pension is not a handout, it is earned (in most cases).
Spending time in prison at taxpayer expense is a handout. Kevin Lynch, any idea of how much taxpayers paid for your time in jail and prison? That's a handout that we wouldn't have been responsible for if you had enough sense to obey the laws regarding assault, manslaughter, and who knows what else.
And now we're footing the bill for your existence because you refuse to work. You're the last one to be talking about handouts.

Stand up against corruption for once in your life then!!! A pension is a handout!!! It is ABSOLUTELY NOT EARNED!!!!!!! It was promised!!!! It is not funded!!!
Pensions are not even funded with using the money being given by present employees unlike social security which is FUNDED!!!!!
So take Chief Demoura at his $140,000 salary so he will collect 80% out on pension for what 40 years???? He hasn't even worked 40 years!!! So the obligation would be atleast $350,000 plus annually for the city which they are not paying into at the time of his service!!!!!!!
The cost to cover his pension will NEVER be earned even by the current force over 40 years!!! You are in a fairy tale land!!!!!
You think people should get paid $350,000 a year plus benefits to do what Demoura does???? His job probably requires him to sleep for 50% of the time but he chooses to stand a lot because studies have shown that sitting causes cancers!!
So, let me ask, what should a ditch digger get paid a year???? Someone who works 40 hrs a week in a plastics factory???? What should they get paid?????? 85% of state troopers retire with ZERO wrinkles and skin so smooth that water beads and rolls off!!!!!
Your perception of life and hard work is upside down!!!! I am probably 12 yrs younger than Demoura and I have most likely worked twice as hard physically!! Tell it to someone else!!!

Nice avoiding the question.
Let me try again: how much taxpayers did pay for your time in jail and prison?
#7 Sep 26, 2013
Pensions are not earned!!!!!!! Enough already!!!!!! You are sounding like a CO. This is ALL I heard over and over and over again. "I need to put in another 5 years"! Another 5 years of doing NOTHING!!!!!
For another thing, I tell all friends and family to go into law enforcement or into being a CO. These are lucrative do nothing jobs. I understand that Yes detectives work hard and drug enforcement work hard but administration???? A CO??????? These guys work more physical hrs ironing their uniforms than actual work!!!!!! Lets be honest!!!!
Next to being a Statey, a CO job is the best job in Massachusetts!!!!! I tell anyone who is failing in school and or is not mechanically inclined to go for these jobs.
You think pensions are earned???? You will see where pensions go in the next ten years!!!!!!!!!!
Look up how much Fitchburg alone is in the hole of dept for concerning pensions!!!!!This money wasn't spent on anything else as it was never there! Mayor Wong knows the debt as she will tell you how much interest that she saves the city to borrow their cost of pensions!!!!! And remember that is INTERESTS!!!!!
#8 Sep 26, 2013
I didn't go into prison voluntarily! It cost $40,000 a year plus. It wasn't a handout only for the CO jobs, their pensions and family health care costs for eternity!!!!!.
As for the $40,000 a year. President Bush Senior told Massachusetts that the federal government wasn't giving Massachusetts another dime and before they do they will just put a fence around Massachusetts and imprison the entire state.
#9 Sep 26, 2013
I can live off $10,000 a year in society!!$30,000 of the $40,000 puts COs in house, cars, family health and a pension that is unmatched anywhere in America!!!!
A CO job is a handout period! Let me ask, what were prison guards doing in gardner for a living before they built a prison in Gardner?
Let me ask, what political party did these COs family belong to?????? And how are they today??
What has changed with them? Intelligence?? You think they put brain juice in the water? Did they struggle more? Or just apply for a job?
They came off the fields, they put their ditch digging shovels down, they began to sleep less with their family members and they signed the job application!!!! That is it!!
What is the difference between a CO and a tradesman such as plumber,electrician or carpenter??? The tradesmen work for a living and they are twice as intelligent as a CO!!
Tell me what it takes to be a CO? Seriously! Inteligence? NONE at all!!!!!!!! Skill? NONE at all!!!!! Physical ability? NONE!!!!!!! Actually this is not exclusive as roughly 4% learn how to strap couch cushions on and swing clubs so 15 of them can attack a handcuffed prisoner!
#10 Sep 26, 2013
So with your infinate business wisdom wouldn't it have been more cost effective for the state to spend $.38 on a bullet to put criminals down instead of spending $40k a year to house and feed them? You are a walking contradiction. You complain about what COs earn but it's your own fault and criminal behavior that creates their job.
#11 Sep 26, 2013
If it weren't for people like you we wouldn't need corrections officers.
#12 Sep 26, 2013
Now, lets break the $10,000 down shall we? So I worked in prison industry's 40 hrs a week. I was paid $5 a week.$2.50 of which I could use to buy soap and shampoo that they do not pass out as they claim when they Feds do their audit. We use to roll out 8 shrink wrapped pallets of soap and shampoo when the Feds did accreditations! After they left we would roll them ALL back into storage till the next years accreditations.
So, working a 40 hr week as a Carpenter, a landscaper, mechanic, meat plant worker or kitchen worker or Chef and earning a paycheck of $5 a week. What is that savings????? I don't know the carpenter that we worked with made what $45,000 a year? We did all his work for $260 a year?
And another misconception, people such as staties have this "list" of ex-cons. They approach an "ex-con" by assaulting them first before asking questions. There reasoning is that anyone who spent time in prison has a pure hatred for COs or authority because they either witnessed or was brutalized beyond human reasoning by a group of 12 couch cushions with clubs while handcuffed!.
Yes, I have seen some just snap and never return to sanity again but many were lucky as they mentally stayed strong and just blocked all the insanity out, read books and did time.
#13 Sep 26, 2013
I never did time, so I have no idea whether or not you're telling the truth. It wasn't that hard to stay out of prison.
#14 Sep 26, 2013
Under your $.38 bullet business some of your best friends and possibly family would be subject to this law as well.
You may be right! You figure the Sheriff who was making a dual $150,000 a year ($300,000) plus family benefits and cash parties ect.... He shot himself, so he saved the state say what $800,000 a year for the next 10 he was to work covering his pension of course. So that would be $8 MILLION savings to the state for that ONE sheriff!
And that doesn't even take into account the costs it was going to be in order to prosecute him. I just have to wonder whether or not his family is collecting a pension?? I would guess that his wife receives full pension from his passing so we would have to deduct this payout and medical expenses for her 40 yrs of living to come...
#15 Sep 26, 2013
I am thinking more about your proposal. Now without the need for corrections officers what would they now do for work? Seriously!!!
See the State of Massachusetts calls it "stimulating the economy"; in essence this service would create a paycheck which would pay mortgages,schools, ect...
So, we would have to begin with giving ALL these COS food stamps, housing and other expenses. What would we do with these guys? They couldn't even get jobs at McDonalds or any trade as they are so lazy!
Seriously, where would you employ this group? They can count to 100 but they need paper. 4% do know how to strap on couch cushions! Most of them are equivalent to wall flowers!! They just stand there!
#16 Sep 26, 2013
Wrong place, wrong time you could of ended up alongside me!
Do you know the actor Mark Wahlberg? He was at my house just 30 minutes before the fight in his convertible Mercedes. He would of been in the clink with me instead he went on to earn over $300 million.
#17 Sep 26, 2013
You have to fix your math here!!!! The cost is roughly $10,000 to house and feed which includes water,sewer,lights and food ect..
Then I saved the state :$45,000 -($5 X 52)=$44,740.00 !! Wait a minute! I saved the state $44,740.00 so they owe me $4,740.00 per year!!
And I made it available for a would be welfare, drunk, stay at home marry your cousin man and gave them a paycheck for $30,000 a year (my contribution) CO that makes $50,000 a year with 80% retirement in under 20 yrs? Wait a minute! Then they get $30,000 plus full boat health insurance for the next 40 years???
So, let me get this right. These COs buy boats, rifles, Homes, cars, vacations, groceries ect.....??
So, COs should be kissing my ass!!!! They went from marrying their cousin, do nothing welfare drunkard to well paid along with the states best pension system????
You may want to use that $.38 cent bullet for someone else. A bullet is a funny thing, huh? You brag how tough you would be shooting someone with a bullet. What type of gun? What would be the pounds per pressure would it take for that trigger finger? Could someone with say a debilitating muscle disease fire this gun or a 110 year old woman?
#18 Sep 26, 2013
I went back to my paperwork. It doesn't state anything about forced labor! So I am owed $4,740.00 per year. They owe me roughly $35,000.00 and it states that I get one gold coin and a horse upon leaving prison. I am big so I need a quarter horse.
What could I sell a quarter horse for?
#19 Sep 26, 2013
If society went for your $.38 bullet business you would sink the state for sure! The economy would be a mess and everyone would be going stir crazy due to debt!
Oh, our country went through this era or atleast the old western movies depict this sort of struggle. They didn't even have running water never mind about dividends and other fast buck schemes.
#20 Sep 26, 2013
Back in the old westerns all firefighters were volunteers! Teachers were lucky to receive enough to buy food and they all lived with their parents and grandparents.
You are really sending me into a whirl! They had wagons pulled by horses. Now we have cars for each family member.
I am sorry, I don't think we could go with your $.38 bullet solution as too many things would have to change. All the bars would have to close down as their would only be one saloon.
Hey maybe we can do what Australia has done huh? They began as a penal colony. Every building was built by prisoners and now they do not allow "ex-cons" into Australia!!!
Now this Australia plan would best work for you! Imagine, you could live down under! There is an idea. You "wage earners/payers for the rest of society" can move to Australia!!!!
Send me a postcard!
