Patrick to Taxpayers: Drop Dead

Suppose the marathon bombings had been committed by born-again Christian Tea Party members on the dole.

Do you really think that Gov. Deval Patrick would be hanging on to those terrorists’ welfare files even tighter than he clutches Lt. Gov. Tim Murray’s state cellphone logs from the morning of Nov. 3, 2011?

If these were “domestic” terrorists, I guarantee you Deval would have coughed up everything by now, up to and including whether they were getting on-the-arm brand-name or generic prescription drugs.

Hey Deval, I’ve got some news for you. Tamerlan doesn’t care if you release his welfare records. He’s got his hands full right about now with the 72 virgins.

Bulletin, governor: Their last name is Tsarnaev, not LaGuer, so why do you care?

Deval said yesterday,“I can understand people’s curiosity.”

Curious? How about, furious?

Interesting, though, how welfare recipients — at least if they’re foreign terrorists — have more privacy rights than state workers.

If you go to bostonherald.com , you can find out the salaries (or pensions) of every state worker in Massachusetts. Of course, those people are citizens and taxpayers. The only ones lower than taxpayers on the PC totem pole are gun owners — by God, you can print their names, and addresses.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, on the other hand, was an alien mass-murdering deadbeat. Excuse me — he was a “stay-at-home dad.” That’s how the Globe describes him — where are we going to get our laughs when the bow-tied bumkissers are gone?

But despite Deval’s shameless preening for the next Profiles in Courage Award, the reality is that his hacks are releasing the Tsarnaevs’ public records.

A Bulger bumkisser named Bob Connolly (projected 2013 pay:$184,161.90 a year) issued this statement for UMass Dartmouth, alma mater of Dzhohkar:“Student records including academic records … cannot under federal law be released without a student’s consent.”

Really? Then how was The New York Times able to report that Junior got “F’s in Principles of Modern Chemistry, Intro American Politics, and Chemistry and the Environment … and a D and D-plus in two other courses.”

Dzhokhar’s a regular John Kerry. You’d think he’d have done better in chem, being a bomber and all. Wonder what he got in driver’s ed, given how he used his brother as a speed bump last week.

Maybe for their next trick, the Times will print Obama’s academic records. Nah, probably not …

But cut Deval some slack. He isn’t stonewalling for the terrorists, he’s just sheltering in place. And after all, the Tsarnaevs were only taking the welfare Americans can’t be bothered taking.

When you use someone else's work, they're one and the same. Little wonder you're clueless...you've never posted an article in your life.

No they aren't.

My comments are part of the thread titled "Patrick to Taxpayers: Drop Dead", but not part of the article which comprises the original post.

Would have earned a 3.3, but misunderstood the instructions and used a big toe instead.

Interesting that there are posts missing--but, at least the parts that show up in responses to them, seem to be completely innocuous.
