Really?

Massachusetts has a higher mean rate of cancer and cancer related deaths than other states in the USA. 36.1 as opposed to 29.58

Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North dakota, Utah, Vermonet, and Washington all have higher rates of children completing and graduating high school than Massachusetts.

It is true that Massachusetts ranks 2nd in the number of students that go onto college, but with a smaller percentage of graduates from high school, that is a reduced number entering the colleges.

Higher pay with a higher cost of living basically washes out...I've lived here and in North Carolina and found that the wages and costs for living pretty much wash out.

Hi Lunenburg,

I was just questioning some of his statements because they just seem rather odd...still haven't figured out how a 50 year old man can be going to the beach for a 50 year anniversary...maybe he is from somewhere else in the country where he had his marriage arranged at birth?

Are you trying to assert that cancer rate is a result of partisan control?

Your "wash out" argument is interesting though. Taken to its logical end, that means tax rates are irrelevant because they "wash out" among higher pay rates and relative cost / standard of living.

I am a contentious person....and a Liberal , I am Stamos short for Sensible, Tame And Mostly On Sence
Contentious? Possibly.
Liberal? Absolutely.
Seems these days Conservatives have convinced themselves, and some of the American public, that being a Liberal is akin to being a card-carrying member of the Communist Party. While this may be a great smear tactic for an election year, to believe such a notion proves that the believer is uneducated in the fundamentals of the American political system. Our nation was founded on Liberalism. Embodied in the Declaration of Independence are its three tenets: "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." The very term, itself, is taken from the same root as the second of these precepts. To be a Liberal is to defend the freedom - the Liberty - of all people who make up our great nation. To be a Liberal is to trust individuals and families to run their own lives as they see fit. To be a Liberal is to create a nation where anyone can excel if they are willing to do the work.
In order to understand the true nature of Liberalism, and to dispel the misconceptions fomented by those whose agenda is counter to our freedom, I will detail the tenets of Liberal thought and dispel the misconceptions so often put forth by Conservative rhetoric.

"Its the people's seat"


Mass voters are accustomed to politicians treating their offices as a form of personal property. The cynical Dem change in Massachusetts election laws, like their efforts to tie the dead senator to federal legislation, stinks. Ironically, the ploy may backfire.

Numbers,

The response was with respect to an assertion that the health, education, and income were superior in massachusetts...try to keep up.

The numbers say differently...not my numbers, someone else's...just stating the facts.

Why don't YOU answer the commenters question and show what you have gained over the many years here in MA?
Distraction,

Unlike many that continue to spout that Massachusetts presents these so-called advantages (typical massachusetts arrogance), I have no boasting to present that would re-enforce these claims that people will make about how good Massachusetts is.

I make a good living and pay a higher cost than others in other parts of the country for that priveledge (for lack of a better expression). It all pretty much evens out...so the original question was, what has the one party control for so many years in Massachusetts yielded for people here?

Other than rhetoric, noone has provided factual evidence that Massachusetts provides a better lifestyle than can be found elsewhere. There are many people in Massachusetts that have never lived outside of Massachusetts and thinks that the sun rises and sets here...I've got a surprise for you...Massachusetts has unbelievable potential, but that potential is being squashed by the politicians running this state.

We deserve better!!

No, I don't see anyone saying MA is far better than anywhere else, just that it is as possible to make it here as anywhere else.
I smell a cop out, you make a good living is all you would say. Have shelter? Food, stability, cars, savings, friends, do you consider yoursself successful?
This last question, do you consider yourself successful is very important. You see, people can only get there if they have what I call "an enough". I have that, I have a level where I am comfortable with all that I have and am very grateful for it. If I had dreams of having a hundred million dollars (the current American dream) well, I would not feel successful at all.
One of the things MA does have is a robust start-up company base. I think that is due to the Educational institutions we have. Those small start-ups have given me jobs when there were none in bigger, more established industries. Some states do not have this and when a major industry changes and moves out their left with no place to go for jobs.

"pay a higher cost than others in other parts of the country for that priveledge"

And I have alredy shown you that MA sits about right in the middle (23rd), so don't be pushing this BS into the discussion!

Your eloquent post is a valiant effort in the strive toward national unity and polite discourse. Thank you sir. William F. Buckley would be proud of you.

Hi Mike,

I have no doubt that Mr. Kennedy is getting his just reward. Sometimes it takes a long time for justice to happen, but it does eventually happen...you gotta love Karma...people can only escape for so long, then the ultimate judgement takes place.

It brings great joy to read the posts from Distraction and other butt hurt Democrats this morning. Your whining is music to our ears. You will try to downplay this victory but the Dems are already starting the blame game. Pelosi is still holding to her arrogant attitude and Deval has got to be shaking in his boots now.

Good luck Dems, you'll need it.
