disappointed not to hear any further discussion on this topic. someone asked a question, so must have been curious. I answered to the best of my knowledge. thought this was what you wanted to know.
I'm sorry to see Jerry O'Neill go. don't know why he left. does anyone know? Gene Guimond at Planning not so happy, b/c now more responsibility falls on his shoulders, on flood map issues in particular. the secretary of that group made a plea at the end of the last meeting stating her fears about the Charter Commission changing the rules to making the Planning Board an appointed board in town, which might mean she would lose her job, if I understood it correctily. does anyone else besides me listen to these meetings on MCTV? or attend the meetings?

Inevitable civil war?
I think the most important thing we can take from the last presidential election is the tendency of the media on both sides to make mountains out of mole hills. It's their job. I think Antifa is more lamentable than dangerous. Police are correct to not over-react.

Its going to happen - just not in the Trump era where there is still some reason to hope.

The mid terms will be a key indicator. Just as the election of Trump went against the grain of tradition that going against the grain has to happen big time again in the mid terms. Ask yourself, which side needs civil war?

Maura Healey should follow her own advice
Opinion posted on August 1, 2017 in the Lowell Sun by DAN GANNON ... ow-advice/
It appears that Maura’s “irony police” missed this one. On July 20, 2016, Healey
“pulled the rug out from under” gun owners and retailers with no notice or public discussion
by announcing she was reinterpreting 18 years of gun laws “that had been carefully crafted
and worked on” by the Legislature many times. Her actions were “unfair, and make no
sense” as there has only been a dozen or so deaths by all rifles in Massachusetts going
back more than a decade.
So many of Maura Healey's actions as Massachusetts Attorney General , intended to thrive in a far different political climate, will now just amount to a huge economic burden for the state. Exxon is just one of many illbegotten lawsuits scheduled to come back and bite The Commonwealth , not Maura personally, right in the butt. We have to ask ourselves where will we be after another four years of this kind of fearless progressive litigation.

Liberal AGs' Exxon Mobil holy war running out of steam
OPINION by Brian McNicoll |in the Washington Examiner, Jun 2, 2017, 12:01 AM
If it can be established Schneiderman essentially deputized green groups to form a
politically motivated case, his federal suit against Exxon Mobil could be thrown out, and its
countersuit against him for harassment would get a major boost.
Some think Schneiderman already has crossed the line. In March, the attorneys general of
11 states wrote a friend of the court brief in which they accused Schneiderman and Maura

Healey, attorney general of Massachusetts, of "an unconstitutional abuse of investigative power" and "textbook viewpoint discrimination.
Oh The Irony!!
5 Investigates exposes secret deals for officers in trouble - The Carney Letters
article for WCVB by Mike Beaudet, Updated: 10:05 AM EST Nov 16, 2016
5 Investigates' Mike Beaudet found, through a series of public records requests,
records of nearly two dozen immunity agreements, known as Carney letters, given to
police officers across the state in the last five years. But the system for keeping track of
these cases is disorganized, making it likely there are still more immunity deals that have
been cut. Supporters of these agreements, including Attorney General Maura Healey, say they are a
way for police departments to investigate suspected police wrongdoing when the case is
not prosecutable or the officer plans to invoke his or her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
"Is this treatment special treatment for officers?" Beaudet asked AG Healey.
"No. To the contrary, I think all of these situations are taken very seriously," Healey replied.
Carney is actually a way to hold police officers accountable for alleged wrongdoing when there isn't a way to proceed criminally against that officer.
So what legally separates these law officers from an A.G. - who is supposedly the chief law officer in the state? If she did not know of the pending consequences of actions such as the Gun Ban she certainly must know now. It is scary to speculate if maybe she doesn't. It's scarier yet to speculate where we will be in 2020.

As dependent as they are on the government does Antifa seriously expect us to believe they would like the anarchy they claim to back better than the corruption that is now in place? Anarchy does not provide free stuff. Communism does not provide free stuff. Free stuffitself is a temporary condition - a false sense of security before the slavery sets in. They are their own biggest obstacle.
'All we need is 51%...51% and we can swing Texas blue.'
Right, but then what if they succeed? Like the Democrats in general, Antifa, with great noise and commotion, stands for nothing - not even anarchy. Not even self interest - really. Just free stuff.

If she gets hired you have to wonder if Nancy Holt comes back also?
Wouldn't shock me, people may have disagreed with her but the pitchfork and torches weren't out for like with others. Who knows maybe she'll get the position she wanted in the first place...

Nothing against Mr. Dello Russo who I like, I just get the impression he won't be here long because he realizes what a mess he inherited and if I remember correctly he has at least a 90 minute one way commute on a good day. I'm sure he will find something closer to home and less messy.
Maybe the case. But he could move here.
There are plenty of houses for sale in Marshfield....but he probably doesn't want to have to pay the high taxes.

It appears that the 'handlers' are educated beyond their intelligence...

The following seems to cover the point:
Letter to Antifa from a Marine:

"If you are paid $25.00 an hour to show up to a rally to "counter" the other party using physical force and violence, you are not a "counter protestor." You are a mercenary.

There is no need for further debate on this. You were paid to attack someone you don't know for reasons that you couldn't care enough about to go there for free. You did your "job" and collected your check and your reimbursement of expenses. You're a mercenary.

Not a Patriot. Not a Social Justice Warrior. Not a Defender of Freedom or Liberty. Not an upholder of Truth or Justice. None of those things you claim to be. You are a mercenary.

And mercenaries are not lawful combatants and deserve whatever comes their way at the hands of the people they are attacking.

You have no 1st Amendment rights when you're a mercenary.

Doesn't matter what side you're on. Doesn't matter what cause you're showing up to disrupt. If you can't express yourself peacefully through diplomatic means, then you better be prepared to meet your maker at the hands of someone who is only barely keeping their own violent tendencies at bay through a massive exercise of self-control.

I know it sounds romantic to attend these rallies and get crap started with the other side. And when you're young and passionate, it's really easy to get whipped up into a frenzy of raw emotions. There is a reason why young people are preferred when it comes to warfare. They are easy to manipulate and control and set off.

But I'm telling you all this right now. You've got no idea what road you are starting down. Romance and idealism wears off really fast when you're laying in a pool of your own blood trying to stuff your intestines back into your torn abdomen.

I've been lucky enough to go forty-two years without having to put the skills I learned in the Marines to use. I continue to train and keep those skills up to date because I see the madness that is happening all across this country. I don't train to attack others like you do. I train to defend others from you. I'm not alone either.

There are thousands of men and women in this country who have seen war and death and don't want any more to do with it. They want to live in peace. They want to forget the things they've had to do in the service of their country. They want to raise their kids and have family BBQs and build tree houses and soap box derby cars and have tea parties.

They don't want the crap that you're selling.

You have the extremist left and the extremist right that are doing their best to get something started. To force us into a Civil War. Even in the 1860's, the violence between the North and South was nowhere near what we see today. Nowhere even close.

And yet we still had a war of ideology that consumed hundreds of thousands of lives.

All you young and naive kids on both sides of this equation who think that having a Civil War will advance your agenda or restore your vision of what you think is America, just remember this. . . Those of us older generations aren't having any of this [expletive]. And if you jump off, you better be prepared to deal with us. We don't care what color you're wearing or what sign you're holding if you come after us, our friends, our family, our co-workers, our neighbors, etc., we will kill you.

So remember that when you're thinking that it's just Left vs Right, or Liberal vs Conservative, or Commie vs. Fascist. We are the variable you're not considering.

That "Silent Majority" that you pretend does not exist is getting really sick and tired of your bullshit.


“How many flood victims in South Texas have been rescued by the Antifa navy? Just asking, because on TV this week I’ve been watching the “Cajun Navy” pull one Dunkirk after another all around the Gulf Coast.And those good old boys look like they just came off the set of “Duck Dynasty.” They could be wearing MAGA hats. Hell, I’ll bet one or two of them may have even been falsely accused of committing a fake hate crime or two since the election by some unhinged Social Justice Warrior.
They are, to coin a phrase, deplorable.

Hell, a Chick-fil-A franchise in Houston sent out a power boat to rescue a couple of elderly customers, which is exactly one more rescue boat than George Soros, Tom Steyer, Evergreen State, Black Lives Matter and have dispatched, combined.

And the old folks didn’t even ask if Chick-fil-A’s CEO is still opposed to gay marriage.

Is Michael Moore hosting an All-U-Can-Eat buffet for first responders in Harris County? If he were, surely MSNBC would be covering it, live.
Where are Elizabeth Warren, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Bahr , Steven Colbert, etc. etc.?

Seriously, doesn’t it look like almost all of the heavy lifting in the wake of Harvey is being done by people who belong to what the Southern Poverty Law Center would describe as “hate groups?”

Speaking of which, when does the SPLC’s food drive begin?

Are the non-workers of the Socialist Workers Party and the Spartacist League loading any southbound 18-wheelers with relief supplies this weekend?

Maybe everyone in “the Resistance” is worn out from wearing pink hats and black masks and tipping over statues and sucker punching passersby with bicycle locks in Berkeley and grabbing an old lady’s flag on the Boston Common and burning it – all those wonderful manifestations of how Love Trumps Hate, as they say.

Of course, it’s the last weekend of summer, so you can’t expect the likes of Jeffrey Epstein to be scrambling his private 747 out of the Hamptons to airlift foodstuffs to Galveston and Beaumont. You can’t be asking Brooklyn hipsters or Occupy Wall Street to occupy a relief shelter when the Beautiful People are jetting into Nantucket for brunch at the Chanticleer Inn.

Besides, as assorted adjunct professors at third-rate colleges have been tweeting out all week, those are Trump voters stranded down there in the Lone Star State – bitter clingers and irredeemables.

Do we even know if the Salvation Army has transgender bathrooms at its shelter in Port Arthur?

It’s Labor Day and Jerry Lewis is gone, but maybe Colin Kaepernick could stage a Harvey telethon outside NFL headquarters on Park Avenue. Why should J.J. Watt and his white privilege have all the fun raising charitable donations?

Then there’s John Kerry– he did sell his second wife’s first husband’s trust fund’s yacht when he moved from Nantucket to the Vineyard, but he could still enlist in the Cajun Navy. America’s Gigolo has other plans this weekend, though according to The Hill, Liveshot is busy – “Kerry races to save American cycling team.”

Well, first things first.
“Kerry, an avid cyclist, has been working the phones to find new supporters for the team, Cannondale-Drapac, after one of its lead sponsors pulled its funding unexpectedly last week.”
Now there is a real tragedy.

How about the Clinton Foundation? They have more money than God, but if you go to their website, all it has is a list of links to other organizations. For flood relief, I guess it takes a village, but not the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary is about to begin her new book tour. It only costs $2400 per person to attend the Toronto fete. How about a charity book signing in Lafayette LA? Call it, “Harvey – What Happened?”

Al Gore’s new “documentary” is tanking. Maybe he should offer free showings to the volunteer Tea Party types trying to lend a hand.

Joel Osteen took a lot of grief this week, but his church is open. Has anyone seen La Raza? Which of his three mansions is Bernie Sanders opening for flood victims?

Victims of Hurricane Harvey, when the phone don’t ring, you’ll know it’s #resist.”

Ahhh... a beautiful crisp late summer morning in the seaside community of Marshfield.
Sparkling sunshine - salt air.

Taking a moment to appreciate it all... when a jet BLASTS OFF from Marshfield International Jetport and sprays everything with ultrafine soot and gasses.

Thanks selectmen! Thanks State Rep Jim! Thanks FAA personnel (with relatives and friends in Marshfield.).
