A liberal answer to everything... " Really? I wonder sometimes if folks read what they post. What does being a "liberal " have to do with anything at all?  (Dec 4, 2009 | post #4)

So are we really in here talking about Sarah Palin's grasp on current events? Really!? The girl's cute enough, I guess, but she's as dumb as a bag of hammers.  (Nov 23, 2009 | post #1019)

Though I wouldn't call myself "conservative " though I do tend lean that way most times in my politics. I have to agree with you that this birth certificate business is WAY overblown and that the vast amount of energy folks are wasting on it could be useful elsewhere. OF COURSE the whole thing's a crock and you're right, too, in pointing out that there have been some pretty wild rumors circulated about republicans over the years. Far more outrageous than this nonsense. P.S. Wasn't Reagan elected in 1980?  (Nov 23, 2009 | post #37)

Seems to me that SOMEONE might have covered the birth certificate issue BEFORE he became President. I seriously doubt such a thing was overlooked. Some folks need to find something else to do  (Nov 23, 2009 | post #33)

It's the difference between being proactive versus reactive. Unfortunately folks tend toward the latter and, as you have pointed out, it takes a tragedy to get folks to pay attention - or lots of money. there are a few intersections around here that could use some attention.  (Nov 23, 2009 | post #2)

KKK Threatens Woman After Walmart Incident

Seriously?! WTF is this "European Southern Heritage" you're on about??? You ARE kidding, right? Let's see... What have you folks down there accomplished? Hmmm... Oh, right; subjugation of blacks. That ended poorly for you as I recall. You all started the bloodiest and costliest war in North American history - or were the reason it got started. That ended badly for you, too. Tried to pull outta' the Union, too. Again, you failed. The list goes on, but where I'm going is that your proud southern european ass - whatever the hell that's supposed to be - can take pride in the fact that your "culture " is rife with losers and losing. How's that going for you?  (Nov 23, 2009 | post #313)

Well, it's great to see all the bigots turned out for something besides a barn dance. Since you're all here, might I suggest you all get those broken down cars out of your yards instead of hogging all the computers at the library? Let the kids have a chance at them.  (Nov 9, 2009 | post #301)

Jeffrey Youens of Southwick, former School Committee memb...

I have to agree with Southwick Mom... I think sex offenders should NOT be allowed back into ANY community. If I ruled the world they would all be taken out back and shot. I'm not kidding! That said, I do not rule the world so they're not being taken out back and dealt with accordingly therefore we need to find a place for them AWAY from children or women, whatever their deal is. The thing about rape is that it's not about the sex so much as it's about control/domination. Some believe it's actually a physiologically/chemically induced condition/urge. I say we legalize drugs, empty our prisons of those people then we'll have plenty of space to lock away these other sick people. It's a sad day when a guy can get 20 years in prison for being a crack addict and some one who damages a person for the rest of their lives by violating them in the worst way get 6 months and turned loose to violate again. The thing, too, about sex offenders is that the crime they were caught for was very likely not the first one they committed. Furthermore, if there is in fact a hell, I sure hope all of them go there and suffer forever for their transgressions.  (Nov 5, 2009 | post #3)

Old Church & run down house - Rail Trail

Perhaps you couldn't quite understand what the person in the last post said... The place is in such disrepair because the folks that own it have had to spend every last dollar they have fighting to keep the place that should have been returned to them after the rail line closed. If you are concerned about the livability of the place, maybe you should swing by and offer them some help putting it back together. Meanwhile, let them live as peacefully as possible with all the wide eyed "naturalists " and disgusting dogs running through their property.  (Nov 5, 2009 | post #4)

Teens die in Mass. crash, 1 was underage driver

I have one word that will certainly help if not inhibit entirely tragedies such as this one... EDUCATION!!! Teach your children to respect things like motor vehicles, guns, alcohol and sex. We try so hard to make our youth FEAR these things and the reality is that when they are teens they fear nothing. I know I didn't. I am the parent of a 7 year old boy and I live with my girlfriend who has a 9 year old boy and it just happens we live right down the road from where this incident occurred. Children have been joy riding their parent's cars since the inception of cars. I did it and I'll bet every other person who reads this did it. Everyone's all lock up your guns, lock the liquor cabinet, hide the keys to everything, but the reality is that we're all human and can forget the keys somewhere or whatever. Here's another concept... Teach your child how to drive, teach him about guns. Teach him about sex, drugs and alcohol. The facts are they're going to encounter these things no matter what precautions we take as parents and when they do maybe, with a bit of knowledge behind them, they'll make the right choices and, if not, maybe they'll at least be skilled drivers, et cetera, and, maybe, things like this won't happen. By all means, lock up what you can, but teach your child about these things. Fear is a lousy substitute for education. I wasn't afraid of anything at 14, not even the wrath of my parents. And I grew up in the days when it was still okay to plant a foot in your child's ass for stunts like this.  (Nov 5, 2009 | post #14)
