Finally, an end to the disastrous DiMasi-Bosley economic stimulus strategies that have destroyed our state's economy. Anyone notice that since Bosley got his hands on the economic development and emerging technologies committee chairmanship that the Berkshires --- and Massachusetts --- economy has been in a tailspin?

If it isn't about Gambling Governor Patrick, then what is it about? Certainly it's about jobs and revenue... but so isn't the sex industry. That pulls revenue in (for the pimps), and creates jobs too... but at what human costs?

People that think Gaming is the answer just don't get it. It merely takes money from one pocket, and transfers it to another. It does not 'create' anything other than human suffering.

Governor Patrick is a young man that thinks quick and easy answers are ‘the answer’. Wrong!
