Everything began in Massachusetts. Terrorism happens because of puke whack jobs who believe that Allah is going to give them 40 virgins. Sex driven fanatics.

That brother should of blew himself up in Chechnya with the rest of the pukes along with his mother! They were cowards for what they did! How more innocent can you get than watching a marathon?

They didn't do anything manly as they put back packs down on the sidewalks next to children and other unsuspecting spectators of the marathon. What they did was cowardly!!!!

Massachusetts is where it all began, it is where the grit came from. New England states won the civil war!

And the Revolutionary war: "The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), the American War of Independence,[N 1] or simply the Revolutionary War in the United States, began as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Thirteen Colonies, but gradually grew into a world war between Britain on one side and the newly formed United States, France, Netherlands, Spain, and Mysore on the other. The main result was an American victory and European recognition of the independence of the United States, with mixed results for the other powers.[N 2]

The war was the result of the political American Revolution. The British Parliament insisted it had the right to tax colonists to finance the colonies' military defense, which had become increasingly expensive due to the French and Indian Wars. The colonies argued that they already spent much through local government to maintain their place in the British Empire, with Benjamin Franklin appearing before the British Parliament testifying "The Colonies raised, clothed, and paid, during the last war, near twenty-five thousand men, and spent many millions."[8] The colonists claimed that, as they were British subjects, imposing laws in Parliament upon the colonists, and particularly taxation without representation, was illegal. The American colonists formed a unifying Continental Congress and a shadow government in each colony, though at first wishing to remain in the Empire and loyal to the Crown.

The American boycott of taxed British tea led to the Boston Tea Party in 1773, when shiploads of tea were destroyed. London responded by ending self-government in Massachusetts and putting it under the control of the British army with General Thomas Gage as governor. In April 1775 Gage learned that weapons were being gathered in Concord, and he sent British troops to seize and destroy them.[9] Local militia confronted the troops and exchanged fire (see Battles of Lexington and Concord).

After repeated pleas to the British monarchy for intervention with Parliament, any chance of a compromise ended when the Congress were declared traitors by royal decree, and they responded by declaring the independence of a new sovereign nation, the United States of America, on July 4, 1776. American Loyalists rejected the Declaration, and sided with the king; they were excluded from power everywhere. American attempts to expand the rebellion into Quebec and the Floridas were unsuccessful."

"Lexington and Concord" which are in Massachusetts not Texas !

The American Civil War, also known as the War between the States or simply the Civil War (see naming), was a civil war fought from 1861 to 1865 in the United States after several[3] Southern slave states declared their secession and formed the Confederate States of America (the "Confederacy" or the "South"). The states that did not declare secession were known as the "Union" or the "North". The war had its origin in the fractious issue of slavery, especially the extension of slavery into the western territories.[4] Foreign powers did not intervene. After four years of bloody combat that left over 600,000 soldiers dead and destroyed much of the South's infrastructure, the Confederacy collapsed, slavery was abolished, and the difficult Reconstruction process of restoring national unity and guaranteeing rights to the freed slaves began.

In the 1860 presidential election, Republicans, led by Abraham Lincoln, opposed the expansion of slavery into United States' territories. Lincoln won, but before his inauguration on March 4, 1861, seven slave states with cotton-based economies formed the Confederacy. Outgoing Democratic President James Buchanan and the incoming Republicans rejected secession as illegal. Lincoln's inaugural address declared his administration would not initiate civil war. Eight remaining slave states continued to reject calls for secession. Confederate forces seized numerous federal forts within territory claimed by the Confederacy. A peace conference failed to find a compromise, and both sides prepared for war. The Confederates assumed that European countries were so dependent on "King Cotton" that they would intervene; none did and none recognized the new Confederate States of America.

Hostilities began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate forces fired upon Fort Sumter, a key fort held by Union troops in South Carolina. Lincoln called for each state to provide troops to retake the fort; consequently, four more slave states joined the Confederacy, bringing their total to eleven. The Union soon controlled the border states and established a naval blockade that crippled the southern economy. The Eastern Theater was inconclusive in 1861–62. The autumn 1862 Confederate campaign into Maryland (a Union state) ended with Confederate retreat at the Battle of Antietam, dissuading British intervention.[5] Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which made ending slavery a war goal.[6] To the west, by summer 1862 the Union destroyed the Confederate river navy, then much of their western armies, and the Union siege of Vicksburg split the Confederacy in two at the Mississippi River. In 1863, Robert E. Lee's Confederate incursion north ended at the Battle of Gettysburg. Western successes led to Ulysses S. Grant's command of all Union armies in 1864. In the Western Theater, William T. Sherman drove east to capture Atlanta and marched to the sea, destroying Confederate infrastructure along the way. The Union marshaled the resources and manpower to attack the Confederacy from all directions, and could afford to fight battles of attrition through the Overland Campaign towards Richmond, the Confederate capital. The defending Confederate army failed, leading to Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. All Confederate generals surrendered by that summer.

The Confederate Constitution of seven state signatories—South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas—formed a "permanent federal government" in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1861. Four additional slave-holding states—Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina—declared their secession and joined the Confederacy following a call by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln for troops from each state to recapture Sumter and other lost federal properties in the South. Missouri and Kentucky were represented by partisan factions from those states. Also aligned with the Confederacy were two of the "Five Civilized Tribes" and a new Confederate Territory of Arizona. Efforts to secede in Maryland were halted by martial law, while Delaware, though of divided loyalty, did not attempt it. A Unionist government in western parts of Virginia organized the new state of West Virginia which was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863. The Confederate government in Richmond, Virginia, had an uneasy relationship with its member states due to issues related to control of manpower, although the South (i.e. the CSA) mobilized nearly its entire white male population for war.[4]

Confederate control over its claimed territory and population steadily shrank from 73% to 34% during the course of the Civil War due to the Union's successful overland campaigns, its control of the inland waterways into the South, and its blockade of the Southern seacoast. These created an insurmountable disadvantage in men, supply, and finance. Public support of Confederate President Jefferson Davis's administration eroded over time with repeated military reverses, economic hardship, and allegations of autocratic government. After four years of Union campaigning, Richmond fell in April 1865, and shortly afterward, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant—with that the Confederacy effectively collapsed. President Davis was captured on May 10, 1865, at Irwinville, Georgia.[5] Four years later, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Texas v. White that secession was illegal and that the Confederacy had never legally existed.[6]

Really? Of course, you will still be able to sling mud right? And take shots at people guilty of "corruption." Because you "believe in truth and everyone else believes in lies?" So your post below is OK, but anyone who disagrees with you "needs to stop?" Just more proof that you're out of your squash.

I could have gone ahead with ethics investigations and the like but I didn't. I want to be left alone is all. I do not want corruption and set ups coming my way for this I will not stand for.
I was harmed greatly, I took many whacks. My life has been totally affected by corruption of city and state officials. They want to show that they are powerfully corrupt! Kudoos to them as now that they know that they affect my everyday they can smirk and pat themselves on their own backs. They are rotten and I cannot change that fact as they need to change within themselves.
I've been reading your posts for years. Your version of all this just isn't true. You bring everything on yourself. If you straighten up and fly right and stop acting like a jerk things will go a lot easier.

My version is 100% true fact!

I agree that I can be a jerk sometimes but only after I have been attacked.

My version is 100% fact. I gave my version to the FBI and the courts .My version is the ONLY one that checks out to be true! You cannot trip me up on any of it as it is the truth. If I wasn't telling the truth then I wouldn't say anything.

It was all made up against Dave and I. Their entire story. I was there, one guy states to the arriving officer Sevigny; "this is the guy from online!" And he replies,"Oh Lynch? We are going to do you good now!"

I can take a beating but I will not let it go to raping. What they did to Dave and I is equivalent to raping our lives apart.

And Yes, I expect people to be men and to extend their hand with an apology. I requested it in court.

I was attacked, I didn't fight back because of the number of the other side; it was like a football team that came out raging. I decided to take a beating because I was out numbered and was not going to get a fair one. Everyone there seen the incident.

At one point, I responded, I didn't assault anyone and I was met with a "we know you didn't but we are going to lie and state that you did, you are all done as we are going to bury you now"! This is 100% FACT! They screamed it at the top of their lungs as everyone heard her!

What is happening here is there are a few relatives who continue to harass me. They know who they are as they where posting on here years ago as well. They could tell them to stop it.

They have asked there questions and I have answered but then they take it a step further with bashing me over and over. It is constant sometimes. I have read them responding to others who they think is me.

I am an extremely logical person. I agree with your point to a level. I understand if you play in the kitchen you are going to get burned. If you stick your head out it may get chopped off in a righteous fight for democracy.

I stand up for equality with honesty. In Fitchburg I find out that I cannot do that without getting hurt. Fitchburg needs to change or it will never be good in Fitchburg. I am the sacrificial lamb and I am taking on injuries.

I have made a positive change in many ways. It can continue to the point of massive movement to a better and safer Fitchburg. It is not out of reach. Movements happen in waves.

Put it this way, if it keeps up in Fitchburg then we may have to have all outsiders to manage our city. There is corruption and everyone knows who it is but they are afraid as they seen what happened to me.

I was applauded by the professionals within these affected fields. I took all the whacks as people stated that I said many things that needed to be stated but no one every did in fear of crossing the network.

I believe that you were there. You know what happened. I went to the door of the FFD but it was locked and then I waited for the arrival of the police as is stated on the recordings. That front door has video as well as the driveway. Both videos have been destroyed against court orders not to! WHY!!!

My voice on 911 is calm and articulate, I explained who I was and that I was a candidate for Mayor of Fitchburg and went on to explain the situation at hand.

At least four documented calls where made from the FPD to the bar. No matter how you put it this put my life in immediate danger! Their defense attorney attempted to state that it was all calculated frame job by me. So, if he was correct then I would have had to put all of my eggs in one basket hoping that they called the bar to inform them that I was outside! This is very far reaching.

Everything I stated is on tape at the court house. I have copies of it all. I have audio.

It hasn't stopped as Roy drove at me in his truck and then slammed the door back on Dave as we left the voting the last time. This is an attitude that is not justified and needs to be addressed. I have requested mediation. I cannot allow this to go on as my life is in jeopardy if I do.

For some reason these people out here who are directly connected do not believe that they will be held accountable if they continue to harass me. I want a sit down or I will request it through the ethics commission. I am not joking. Enough is enough.
One thing for sure

Faults and all, Lynch is the only one brave enough to have his name and past out there for all of you to ridicule, not one of you are as brave, that's a fact!

You can make all the excuses you want, he is the only one with his real name and past out there on these boards, not one of you has the stones to do the same.

My excuse, I don't ridicule this person for his past. He may even have present issues, I ignore rantings and may pick out a theory or two but ignore the non salient postings.

If you're not willing to do the same and make yourself known then you should not be hammering on one who is willing to have himself known, unless you do the same!

I want it to stop. Actually I demand that it does stop and I request for a face to face meeting to address it.

I am running to office again and I will not lie for anyone, I will not be biased against anyone but I am not going to act like I do not know the truth! How can people do this??? Either there is a constitution or there isn't!!!

Do we stand for equal civil rights or is there exceptions? Who makes these exceptions? I have issues with a few judges on the bench as I think that they should be removed. There is a lot of problems and they all effect the community.

At present the community in Fitchburg is dysfunctional, nothing is working. We have reached the bottom as only out of control chaos can follow such a dysfunctional mess. We need real leaders and we need to follow the constitution note for note as it works when applied!!!!!

Ironically the Constitution is our only savior! This corrupt machine runs deep in government. They want the community to conform. They are now transitioning our community colleges in order to transition people into factories. They are forcing low wage and long term suffering on the population.

Leominster has been elbowing Fitchburg and cross checking us into the boards and we conform to them. They are positioning to take our businesses and anything good out of Fitchburg. I don't blame them as this is what I was stating for the Mayor to do concerning Leominster. It is competition which will be here forever.

I stated that Fitchburg should position for a casino. Now Leominster is in the running. I don't know all the pros and cons of a casino but it was worth the discussion to take place. Even now we should be jockeying these investors into taking a look at Fitchburg and put better incentives out there.

I have been proposing a Fitchburg connector which is good for business and is the only funded job projects being offered by the federal government. They all say, "Fitchburg would never be approved"! Well how do we know if we do not apply? How do we know until they deny us? We have had study groups on our Main street and on John Fitch highway. This alone is a sign that we need infrastructure assistance.

If we do not do anything in this regard then Fitchburg will never be a place to raise kids safely. Familys that moved into Fitchburg 5 years ago now want out fast.

Our local government is failing as ALL cost have risen! You have to think outside of the box. If you fix the FPD problems and straighten them out. If you give tax breaks and fees discounts to our seniors! Then the community will begin to grow and strengthen.

The city will reap the benefits through a stronger community as neighbors will be reporting drug and gang activity. Fitchburg then markets itself as a safe and more equitable place to live.

About four years ago Fitchburg was at the top of this list of most equitable place to live. Our leaders seen money signs!!! But in the wrong way; they went and raised all the taxes and fees. I would have marketed Fitchburg with that study that found Fitchburg most equitable place to live.

See this study did attract many families but now it has reversed due to policy. This is what Republicans always claim to be a champion of, it is the only way that they can convince voters to vote for them. But they never implement it because it is all double talk.

We need to tax less and widen the tax base at the same time.

"I tried to run after him, but I'm not faster than the Cherokee," said sales associate Charly Chakaroh."I was very close to his hand and was able to get the second 2.59 carat (ring) before he ran away," he said, adding that [Kevin Lynch] told him his girlfriend didn't want anything under 3 carats.

"We determined he swallowed the ring," Capt.[Robert Larsen] said, adding that Lynch consented to a search. He was taken to a hospital in Derry, N.H., where an X-ray revealed the diamond in his digestive tract.

The Mayor should have a forum. City councilors should have a forum. I can't even get them to agree on a "walking Main street" twice a month meet and greet type of thing/exercise awareness program.

It sounds stupid to some but this is what brings out energy within a community. Come out and say hello to the citizens!

I agree that some of my ideas are not feasible. But it may bring out alternative proposals from others.

Such as the Fitchburg connector proposal. Someone has since co-opted with the University and put the green sign on water street which is a good thing. Another citizen came to me and stated a proposal such as a newer avenue that would connect rt 12 to John Fitch.

If you go to a Ward meeting all they want to do is to praise Mayor Wong. Ok, "she is great!" but now lets talk about the other 40,000 citizens and their needs.

My position concerning the illegal parking is a good example. No one should get such exemptions/better treatment than any other citizen, no one! The public is watching and noticing and talking about these issues always!

I would judge every thing with blinders as I don't care who knows who! I would ticket the Mayor if she parked in a handicap spot. If we all follow this same behavior then the community will grow strong ! We will then fill Main street.

At present people do not want to participate within Fitchburg due to many different issues. Financially the city has completely tied up everyone's disposable incomes which is the money everyone has left over after paying their bills/necessities. Such as our elders who would fill many diners within our city. Now they are isolated to McDonalds dollar menus.

Now people will say, the city doesn't make any revenue if we give it back to the seniors. But the truth is that they do. In essence Fitchburgs' community will get stronger hence a more attractable place to live and/or work.

Financially the city has completely tied up everyone's disposable incomes which is the money everyone has left over after paying their bills/necessities. Such as our elders who would fill many diners within our city. Now they are isolated to McDonalds dollar menus.
Now people will say, the city doesn't make any revenue if we give it back to the seniors. But the truth is that they do. In essence Fitchburgs' community will get stronger hence a more attractable place to live and/or work.
What the city needs to do is have an open forum meeting once a month at a local auditorium. Citizens that have questions about why the city does things they way they do can be explained.

The city has logical reasons for they way it operates but the citizens don't know why.
