APPROVED BAILOUT": the big deal is that the CEO's are getting tax dollar bonuses for doing at terrble ob- should be fired, and need to convert to electric cars, not expect us to drill in ANWAR. Tha's the big deal- no oversight; then people will complain that the " government" spends are tax dollars foolishly. BTW, you want tp put some cash up for the " bailout" that is no big deal? WONDERING: Have the non-union employees called a meeting to reduce their salaries, and cancel their pension and health benefits yet? Have the residents agreed to shut down the senior centers, pay the heat bills on their own, drive their trash to the dump, eliminate the tax exemptions and abatements, close the town office buildings and schools at night and on the weekends, eliminate the recreation dept, go to tax classification since businesses have been paying less over last 10 years, eliminate paid police details ,cancel sports programs and token stipends. Didn't think so.  (Dec 10, 2008 | post #1)

re: DISPLEASED What would you suggest that the Chelmsford School Superintendent do? 30 teachers are gone through layoffs or attrition, and Westlands Elementary School is closed to 400 elementary students who are bussed at $200 each to other schools, while the Chelmsford Senior Center stays open for Christmas parties, and massive heat bills. Maybe the seniors pitch in to pay the heat bill, and the bill to plow the parking ot so they can have their senior discount lunches on time.  (Dec 9, 2008 | post #2)

when President-elect Barack Hussein Obama called for "change" , it was about direction in "policy" from the 8 long pathetic years of the Bush-Cheney fiasco, not "personalitie s". You will get pleny of "change' for the good. Can't wait.  (Dec 5, 2008 | post #4)

GOP fix begins by tuning out radio squawk

Kondrake is 8 years too late, and is working in hindsight, given that President-elect Barrack Hussein Obama and the Democrats scored big time in the elections, after the Republicans almost dropped the country to its knees. This is like the Hoover leftovers wanting to seriously participate in the New Deal. My advice to the Republicans: Moveover and don't further drag the country down with your Senatorial filibusters. If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem. You had your chance, and we see the results. Take Limbaugh & Hannity with you - no one spoke up at the time, and Kondrake did not either until the Republicans lost the election.  (Nov 30, 2008 | post #1)

Farm-bill failure

Bush's Department of Agrigulture should have been on top of this. But they are up tight with agribussiness and could care less. Bush? " he dont know., either. What about the GAO. In China you would be executed for this- any corporate "farmer" caught stealing like this. Here under this Administration- they get to keep the money; hee,hee. Glad when those absolute imbiciles are gone.  (Nov 26, 2008 | post #1)

im saying union members have to currently work for a living; what's you're beef? they should work for nothing or without a raise? If you do not want to pay them, then dont call the police, have the trash picked up, send your kids to school, use the library or drive on the asphalt streets, walk on the sidewalks,use the playgrounds, buy your own school books and drive your grandkids to school and pay the heat bill yourself- unless you think it's all free and people work for dirt wages just to make you happy, so you can pay your 150 buck cable bill. Quit crying and get the cash up.  (Nov 25, 2008 | post #8)

re. COSTLY CONTRACTS, most people that are agaist unions, pensions and contracts are getting social security, medicare, military & railroad pensions, elderly tax abatements, senior discount meals, and Plan b prescription drugs, no kids in college, mortgage free house, and wheels on meals- we know where you are coming from, look in your own backyard before dissing the union WORKERS.  (Nov 25, 2008 | post #1)

In 2000, as I recall Bush stole Florida with 537 votes after they missed 28,000 in Democratic Broward county/ Gore won the popular vote by 500,000;Bush played with ohio in 2004. tell me you want those imbiciles , or their look alike Grandpa McCain back , after the country is almost in ruin from those nitwits. Don't tell me you pushed a lever that had whaco Palin on it, please, man. You can ale ready see the difference President Hussein Obama is already off and running. My generation will be voting for Dems for decades now.  (Nov 25, 2008 | post #6)

'I can make any place a home'

I hope the kid is not told that there is a story in the Lowell sun about him winning this writing award and then , puts on the computer, reads the article , then scrolls down to some of the ignorance on this blog/ comments section. The kid's ( and only 11 years old- so not as tough as you)heart will drop. We are with you, don't give up, even when you see this ignorance .  (Nov 24, 2008 | post #33)

FORWARD: I like all the political decisions: President Barack Hussein Obama- VP Joe Biden win ( won by 20 points, 379 electoral votes, 7.5 million votes) and already working on solutions while Peewee Herman from Crawford rests & VP Cheney gets indicted); John Kerry stays (won by 35 points); State Income tax ( sane people said NO to repeal by 25 points); dogs are out - big margin; marijuana- misdeamenor like it should be. Best of all Silly Sarah is back in Alaska pardoning turkeys. Check McCain's mental alertness out ( going on 73) as he turns 74, 75, 76, and you will see why he was not up to it, thank God. Happy Days Are Here Again.  (Nov 24, 2008 | post #3)

Public can't wait to get on Freeman Rail Trail

SPEED IT UP; it's 20 years, 20 years in the works. Get it done. What's left, before the Republican Recession really sets in? The money is spent. Close the Senior Center and christmas parties & dances down and transfer the money. Obviously the writer does'nt ride a bike.  (Nov 22, 2008 | post #2)

PETA will get to horse racing; don't worry,can't do everything at once. Nothing to do with rich man's sport; has ti o do with humane treatment, not using animals for sports. Cock fighting, dog fighting, bull fighting, you know. Notice that FOX News ( Rupert Murdock) and right wing talk radio bullies are not calling President-elect Barry Obama (that half-white Jewish-Italian guy) by the name of "Barack HUSSEIN Obama" anymore. Come January , it will be President and Commander-In-Chief barrack Hussein Obama. FOX News should show some respect.  (Nov 21, 2008 | post #1)

Top of the food chain?Why stop there? Your aunt in the nursing home dies, roast that on the spigit, little barbeque sauce, delish. no sense letting good meat go to waste, and dropping it in a hole with makeup on. No one's bothering you. Eat all the meat you want; try killing it yourself, instaed of getting it in the pretty packages in the Demoulas freezer. and don't complain about food prices, then.  (Nov 20, 2008 | post #11)
