Riddle me this? Why is Diana DiZoglio , a political opportunist extraordinaire , using herRead More privileged position of power to interfere in a strictly private matter that is reserved to the stake-holders and the economic free market. If she can do this to them.. she can do this to you.. no matter what is your avocation or individual commercial interests. If no laws have been violated .. It's a private matter outside the domain of government authority. Your forewarned.
Nothing else to worry about July 22, 2014 at 08:37 am
Market Basket is a private company and unfortunately the only course if action is to do everythingRead More we can to keep the stores open so that the employees have the security and benefits they need to make sure their families are ok. When politicians join a " fight " you have to remember that this is much easier to do that effectively run the government where the arrogant corruption and waste of tax dollars, non-existent aid for cities and towns and ever increasing fees and taxes will eventually sink the real "working families" of the commonwealth. The mayor of Lawrence has MUCH BIGGER problems than Market Basket and the hack politicians have better straighten out the black hole of crack head spending on useless programs, corruption and fraud. For example, the hacks want to raise the gas tax every year for inflation, which steals money from families and their children. Where is the existing gas tax going? Not for roads or infrastructure! Next time you see one of these "politicians" ask them how their pension payout is growing and compare that to your retirement and you will realize just who these people work for - it obviously isn't us! I hope that the employees of market basket are able to get over this hurdle and the company is able to survive.

I bit the bullet yesterday and for the first time in decades did not shop at Market Basket. InsteadRead More I hit Walmart and Hannafords. I paid through the nose, with some items as much as 80% higher than what I'm used to paying at Market Basket. And the selection at both Walmart and Hannafords is utterly pathetic compared to Market Basket, But I support the workers and I'll continue shopping elsewhere until the employees are satisfied.

He is the speaker, isn't he supposed to be indicted at some point to keep the streak going.
Tyler Jozefowicz July 21, 2014 at 09:07 pm
Rob C: another article here was about the current MA gun law and rather than address it head on (Read More specific disliked parts), you talked about libertarian gun philosophy; here the article is about DeLeo and the fact that he was not indicted and he is not even an unindicted co-conspirator as another misinformed individual here suggests ; rather than correct the misinformation that old conservative guys thrive on, you go off instead about Martha Coakley, our next governor. ADD? Andrew Denaro: there are no criminal charges, but you spout as if there were. Wishful thinking or just delusion. It does'nt exist , dude, all in your brian washed FOX news head. steveforte: I'm surprised at you but perhaps i shouldn't be. Confronted with the reality that no charges ever have been brought against DeLeo, steve suggests that something in his chrystal ball will emerge. Off to the funny farm with all three. It's a simple case of mind over matter ; when you don't have a mind, it doesn't matter. This is better than Comedy Central. Three living Archie Bunkers.
Rob C July 21, 2014 at 09:34 pm
Tyler, I did directly answer your question in that other article, you just don’t like theRead More answer you got and then you ran away from answering a simple question as usual. You may want to go back and re-read this article. It deals with fraud/corruption in the state and the charges brought by the FEDS. Something you would think the top "law enforcement" officer of the state should/would want to do. So answer the question Tyler, how many fraud/corruption charges has she brought and how many have the feds done? Only one I can think of is her miserable failure of a trial against Cahill, and that trial never should have happened in the first place. Also in this article is how the legislature is more interested in bowing down to the teachers unions instead of doing what is right for the kids. We now know what they are more interested in, and that is lining their pockets with money from the unions instead of a better education for the kids.

What I find so disturbing is that people believe their freedom is somehow being eroded because of regulations such as this.

Sarcasm, yeah. Anyhoo, it is not unheard of for non-profits to receive government (taxpayer) money.Read More For instance, through grants. Or good old-fashioned pork barrel funding. Some would argue the whole concept of the tax-exempt, non-profit status is questionable. And I bet there is something in the tax codes that allows attorney's to get credit for the pro bono work that they do. But I guess this is a debate for another day. Moving on....
deb of see-attleboro July 22, 2014 at 07:01 am
My main issue with you, Kira, is you seem to be defending the indefensible. (There must be a wholeRead More class on defending the indefensible in law school. Yes, sarcasm) IMO, there are basically two scenarios that brought us to where we are today. This "humanitarian crisis" was either orchestrated or the administration is incompetent. Or perhaps both. Not good either way. In any event, this crisis does not end if we throw a life preserver to a few thousand refugees, even if they are truly running from deplorable conditions. Unless the UN is going to go and clean up the place be for they are returned to their homes, there is still a humanitarian crisis in Central America, correct?
deb of see-attleboro July 22, 2014 at 07:07 am
Kira: Being humane people, you and I should be able to agree on at least a couple things. I'mRead More always looking for common ground. First of all, it is sinful and immoral to exploit children. Secondly, it is dangerous for the powerful to agitate the powerless. There are way too many loose cannons out there....and in here, as you so rightfully pointed out.

"Justina's Law." We can understand why Professor Warren wasn't a co-signer but the ACLURead More and the rest of the Massachusetts delegation!? On June 26, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) introduced House Resolution 4989, nicknamed "Justina's Law." The bipartisan bill co-sponsored by Reps. Karen Bass (D-CA), Tom Marino (R-PA), and Jim McDermott (D-WA) seeks to prohibit federal tax dollars from being used for medical and psychological experimentation on wards of any state. "Justina's Law" is a federal legislative response to the kidnapping, imprisonment, and forced psychological treatments of Connecticut teenager Justina Pelletier. The "behavior modification" she was forced to endure at the hands of Boston Children's Hospital and the state of Massachusetts for more than a year led to a serious decline in her health and wellbeing.

Biggest threat to kids in schools is a nut job with a bag full of weapons. Only way to have anyRead More successful defense against that is to have a select few teachers with weapons of their own that are willing to respond if such an incident were to happen. Throw them a little extra in the paycheck for the service they are providing. Much better to already have people on site ready to respond immediately and deal with the threat than to call police and wait 5 minutes for them to show, then another 5-10 minutes while they decide what to do and then end up just going in to clean up the mess when it is all done. The rest covered in the report is pretty basic and not sure why a committee had to be put together to discuss it.
