You know Mr. Billings, it is said when the only thing you can do is level insults at people it means your education level is insufficient and really shows lack of character. So much for you being "the thinker."  (Nov 12, 2009 | post #187)

Crane to move plant to Dalton

Right, I suppose you were one of the ones calling Bush a Nazi? Tell me one good thing Obama has done? He's spent money like a drunken sailor and that's insulting drunken sailors. He has spent money to take over the banks, businesses, and car companies so the government can fail at running those too. Now he wants to take over health care and we have seen how good government run health care is with the VA system and how quickly he has been able to get those swine flu vaccines out there. He has spent more money in 1 year then Bush spent in 8 years. He has gotten us into more debt than any President in history. He said that if we passed the stimulus package we wouldn't have more than 8% unemployment rate and now it's 10.2%. Obama doesn't understand that government spending and higher taxes is not going to get us out of a recession. Obama doesn't understand that giving people their money back and cutting taxes is how to get businesses to spend and produce. Obama wants everyone to depend on the government. That's the only way liberals can stay in power. If everyone in the country depends on government hand outs to survive then he knows that people will always vote democrat. Pretty soon people are going to forget that prosperity is even possible in this country if government would just get out of the way. Do you know in this health care disaster, the government can come into your house and make sure you are raising your children the way they want you to? It's nothing to do with race. I supported Alan Keyes for President, guess what, he's black!! It's nothing to do with Obama being black, it's the fact that Obama and his minions are destroying the country and shredding the Constitution. What needs to happen is the states need to convene a Constitutional Convention and abolish the federal income tax to starve government back down to size. It's time we take back our country!  (Nov 12, 2009 | post #43)

Right, and I suppose the last 8 years of Bush bashing was racism too?  (Nov 12, 2009 | post #42)

As for my idea...the biggest thing North Adams needs is increased fire protection. With the skeleton crew that's there now residents or firefighters or both are going to die. Yes, it is going to cost some money, but would you rather pay a little money now or would you rather have people die? When I left North Adams in 2000, on a first alarm you would have 2 pumpers and a ladder responding, while this is still inadequate, it's a lot better then having to decide to send 1 pumper and 1 ladder or 2 pumpers, and not having a 2nd ladder at all. Plus the 3rd pumper is in serious need of repair. This is a recipe for disaster. I live in a town of 10,000 people and a standard response here on a first call is 3 engines, 1 ladder, a heavy rescue, and we call mutual aid for the RIT team which is the Rapid Intervention Team which basically is for if something happens to the firefighters inside they go in and get them. So public safety is the first thing that needs to be fixed.  (Nov 12, 2009 | post #169)

I think this is my first post in this thread. But when I read the OP and saw "A more friendlier camp manager" I said Yes!! If it's still a guy named Harry, he needs to be replaced. In one of Barrett's only good acts towards me he got me a summer job at the campgrounds. I went to work and on my first couple days (this was in the early to mid 90s so for all I know "Harry" could be long gone by now) anyway, my first couple of days I got a sliver that went right through my hand from the rake I was using. I asked Harry for a band-aid just because I didn't want to be bleeding all over the place. Harry told me "If you are going to get hurt you have to bring your own medical supplies." I promptly left the job and told Barrett what happened and he did nothing. It's too bad I wasn't a little wiser and older back then because I should have got a lawyer and sued "Harry" and Barrett.  (Nov 12, 2009 | post #166)

The Democrats are destroying the country. The only "change" Obama has brought us is out and out socialism. If we don't get these people out of office and fast, this country will be gone. In about 10 years tent cities will pop up. China will own all the land, the only thing that this country will produce is agriculture and all the good food will go to China and the rich government people, the rest of us working people will be given the left overs through handouts. People will forget that prosperity is even possible. The government will be "taking care of us" from cradle to grave. The country will be lost. We will be nothing more than a third world country. Thanks Muslim Obama.  (Nov 10, 2009 | post #29)

So if you don't like politicians who are destroying the state and country and they happen to be black, you are a racist and a bigot? The left wing nut jobs are so predictable. We have one up here in Maine that's destroying our state and he's white! His name is Baldacci! Thank God for term limits in Maine and this idiot will be gone next year. The problem is, people in Maine love tax and spend Democrats and will probably vote for another economy destroying, tax raising, spend happy Democrat.  (Nov 8, 2009 | post #27)

Look around, the problem isn't Dick or JBIII, the problem is a man named Barack HUSSEIN and another man named Duval Patrick. The country has become a socialist utopia under Barry O and now the Mass has gone back to a full one party system, a party of tax and spend anti-business, big government loving democrats nothing will get better. Things won't start getting better until 2011 after we throw out the liberal bums in DC and after 2012 when we get rid of the radical Muslim communist in the White House. Until then, enjoy 15-20% unemployment while the Dems will keep blaming Bush.  (Nov 6, 2009 | post #12)

Barrett ousted -- Alcombright wins

I bet Barrett could talk to Bosley whenever he wanted! You will never see any improvement in MA as long as you have tax and spend Democrats solidly in control. Have you ever seen any democrat do anything to help business? Ever seen a Democrat cut taxes? Ever see a Democrat do anything good? I haven't.  (Nov 5, 2009 | post #103)

Barrett ousted -- Alcombright wins

So Clark, you think being on the Democratic Committee means you are qualified to be mayor? Hahaha! Yeah, Barrett was such a great Democrat he supported Republican Jane Swift for Governor. When I was young and dumb and a Democrat, I was also on the committee in North Adams and I was threatened to be kicked off the committee by the Chairwoman at the time because I wore a Ross Perot button as a JOKE!! Yet this clown got to publicly support a Republican for Governor! That's one of the reasons I left the corrupt Democratic party for good! Being on the McCann school committee makes someone qualified for Mayor? Hahahahaha!!! Then I guess you can't say anything about Mr. Alcombright's experience! Mr. Alcombright has it all over Barrett when it comes to experience at the time of beginning their term. You are just filled with sour grapes that Jolly John won't be there to bully the police and fire dept. and DPW workers any more. I guess now the DPW will be able to actually plow and salt the roads instead of tying up 2 trucks to get Barrett unstuck when he drives into the snowbanks during snow storms. Yeah, taxes might go up a little but once Alcombright staff's the fire dept. so they aren't risking their lives every time the alarm sounds due to having no manpower I bet your homeowners insurance will go down. It's pretty bad when only 2 trucks and a few firefighters are rolling on a first alarm and they have to sit and watch the building burn until they call in the next shift. Firefighting is a dangerous job, and those of us that are firefighters know the risks, but what we also know, is what Barrett has done is put the firefighters and public in danger unnecessarily. Maybe we ought to put a Scott pack on Barrett in put him in the next big fire in North Adams...They probably don't make gear big enough to fit him. It's a new era for North Adams and it almost makes me want to move back. The other thing is John was saying he knew he was in trouble because the "younger voter" was voting. Right...like my 80+ year old friend who was out on election day on the streets jumping up and down having a great time and unfortunately was so tired out from all the excitement that she couldn't make it to Alcombright's victory party! That's OK though, she had her own victory party because the people of North Adams have been liberated from tyranny!! If you think the taxes are going up in North Adams you could always come to Maine where we have the highest tax rates in the country and people here are too stupid to vote for a bill similar to prop 2.5 like you have in MA. But we also have a high quality level of services such as police, fire, and snow removal. They use salt liberally here and the roads are a lot safer than they are in North Adams!  (Nov 5, 2009 | post #99)
