It Just Keeps Getting Worse.....

Shocker - I am again outraged at a Correia decision. I will preface this by saying that Correia still has a driver hauling his ass around in his Lexus and holding his umbrella over his head in inclement weather. That being said, Correia cut funding so that the elderly no longer have a driver for trips to the grocery store.

STALKING THE MAYOR IS THE MINIMUM THAT SHOULD BE DONE ABOUT HIM.

these are one of the worst fiscal times the country has endured. although senior trips are important, delivering flu vaccines, for example, takes precedent.

Yes, but a driver for the mayor does not.

Is this another piece in Bob's brilliant re-election strategy? If the seniors can't get groceries for a few months, then they'll be so so grateful for the free, vote-for-me chow mein sandwich in September.

Hey, i just had a thought. Didn't an old lady in a grocery store whack Bob in the foot with a shopping cart a few months ago? Maybe this is his revenge!

Wait a minute... Bob knows what the inside of a grocery store looks like?

he thought it was a pharmacy and he was looking for rogaine.

Now people there is no need to be mean and untruthful ... Bob was there looking for some Depend Adult Diapers ...

Just my opinion, but the personal attacks on the mayor for his hair loss and his age make any of us who post comments on the blogs look like we're just childish. Honestly, if you want to be taken seriously cut the personal attacks and just stick to the facts of what he's doing and why it's upsetting you. His decisions really are bad enough where you don't have to stoop to that level right?

Yeah, but it's SO easy. If he had any charisma whatsoever or maybe Paul Newman-esque rugged good looks we might be dazzled enough to let him slide on some stuff (Bill Clinton, anyone?). Problem is, he chronically bungles everything he touchs AND he looks like the creepy uncle who's lap you never wanted to sit on. So, yeah, I'm pretty comfortable critiquing his looks as well as his performance, or lack thereof.

You gotta admit, if you didn't know who he was at all and you saw him on the street, you'd say, "Man that guy is creepy looking!"

W.J.Bloggah--while I might agree with everything that you are saying and I'm laughing out loud at home, I just think that the blogs can actually make a big difference and because of that I think we should restrain ourselves. (The line about the creepy Uncle was excellent, by the way.)
I just don't want to give them any reasons to say the bloggers aren't to be taken seriously. =)

They (the Powers That Be) will never take anyone seriously except themselves. So why not have a little fun with them? I can go on and on about Joe Camara's spiffy new Spikey Hair-do, Ken Fiola and his muscles when he should take some of the money he's stolen over the years and invest in a hairpiece, the thing on John Almeida's face that he calls a nose, Bob Correia and his jowls, The Hurricaine's well deserved Beer Belly. Who cares? They obviously don't! And I don't care either, what are they going to do, beat me up? Seriously, good luck with that, gotta catch me first.

You have a very valid point that these blogs can be powerful if used right. But there are tons of people on here who have the facts and are more well spoken than I. I leave the poinancy and well thought out arguements to them. I vent my frustration the only way I know how: by being petty & vindictive (how's THAT for honesty, at least I know what I am and never claimed otherwise). Besides, a guy like the Hurricaine will just tune out if you start talking facts and numbers, but his ears sure do perk up when someone calls him a loser (or a has-been or a never was, or a junkie, or an alky, or a stuttering marble mouth, etc.) If ever I were to go too far, I'm sure Shamrock or whoever have the good judgment enough to censor, which is their prerogative and their right as the blog owner. I've had comments pulled from the Herald News website, and I looked back and said, "yeah that was kind of pushing it."

Bottom line, Those that can, do. Those that can't, talk shit. Me, I've got a big pointy stick and I love to keep poking......

This just in. Fall River places second in MA unemployment (not including the seasonal unemployment hotspots of the upper cape) to perennial shithole Lawrence. 15.9% to 16.0%

Jobs, you want jobs creation from these barely literate morons? Good luck. Your local unemployment rate is proudly brought to you by the Fiolas, Correias, Carlon Viveiroses, Lamberts, Karams, and everyone else who has done such an excellent job over the past thirty years of moving our local economy forward. Thank You.

shamrock maybe you should volunteer to be his driver? Then you could get a first hand look at how his busy day unfolds.

I think Shamrock has better things to do than haul that load around all day.
