The thing that really is a shame is that these same Bozo's will get re-elected. People in Ma. don't have the guts in the voting booth to change it. They get treated like crap and don't fight back.

no, YOU said it's not the "concern" of people who don't live in mass....i just pointed out how absurd your claim/deflection is!...we're ALL American and we should ALL be concerned about the immoral, political bastardization being perpetrated by the democrat party in mass.!...take your time and try to wrap your brain around this concept and get back to me..good luck and God bless!

Hey Mass-holes, you voted this murderer in term after term, why should anyone be surprised you'd be pulling this crap now?

The state's going bankrupt right after Cally - fornia. Good luck with that. Maybe one day you'll ask yourselves "why?". Or maybe not.
After all, you also keep voting in Bawhney Fwank.
There is quiet tax revolt going on in Mass. Last year thet attempted to repael the income tax. It failed by a narrow margin.

This year they are trying to reduce the sales tax to 3% from 8%.

Go Mass!

The supreme court has already ruled that a state cannot limit a person from running for Senator. Thus if they make the "temp" unable to run in the special election they are already breaking that judgement.

Just suck it up and take it, it was the rules you wanted.

so, in YOUR post,#63, when you said "this doesn't concern anyone outside of mass.", you mean there was some "gray area" in that statement?...wanna tell us what you DID mean, other than it was nobody's business outside of mass.?...ya see, i made an equally clear reply when i pointed out your vapid statement might also include those people "concerned" about al queda!....should only people in the middle east "be concerned" about al queda?...dude, are you a mass. politician, or just a rabid, kool-aid-drinkin' new england democrat?...wonder how you'd feel if it was mass. republicans corrupting the legislative process?...hate to bury you with your own post "lak", but, there it is!...now, i don't want to discourage you, "lak", from writing more...in fact, i hope you keep it up...your sensless blather might very well be the push independant voters in new england need to reclaim their government!...good luck and God bless!

Well, frankly what you assert is an inconveneient untruth....Every Congressman and Senator can and do introduce proposed legislation; and they all get to vote on all pending legislation ... meaning that each who serve as one of those 535 Legislators in Washington is of concern to ALL AMERICANS, not just their immediate voting constituencies.

By the Way, to the People of Massachusetts - where in the Constitution of your state does it mandate that at least ONE US Senatorship from Massachusetts belongs to the Kennedy family and they must approve all Senate candidates for that seat?
