Anatomy of a Collapse

Posted on August 11, 2010 at 1:19pm 0 Comments

Brian McGrory, Boston Globe columnist, gets it absolutely right today

while writing about Matt Amorello’s continuing fall from grace. The

column is a little too maudlin and finger-pointy for my tastes but the

main theme is dead on target: Massachusetts government is filled with

under-qualified men and women who got their positions by being

Massachusetts Folly Writ Large

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 12:40pm 0 Comments

Recently, my partner at Clean Sweep asked me what I thought about this

idea: Could the whole Obamacare debacle be nothing more than trying to

solve the health care crisis exacerbated by illegal aliens filling up

the emergency rooms? I told him I thought it was an interesting idea,

it had a ring of possibility to it, and that I’d see if I could find

some data reflecting on the issue. No matter which way the data falls,

it’s an interesting question and one worth… Continue

The Buck Stops . . . Somewhere

Harry Truman was a colorful president, to say the least. He was

definitely the sort of person that tales and legends grow from but this

one, at least, has photographic evidence: a sign boldly stating “The

buck stops here” on one side (“I’m from Missouri” reads the other) sat

prominently on his desk. Right or wrong, and people have been debating

many of his decisions since he made them, Truman was willing to take the

fallout. How often do we see that in a… Continue

Trying something new - Voting for good people

The end result is that an elected official is expected to follow the

party line, regardless of use for the constituency, or else “bad” things

will happen. I don’t know about you, but I like to look at candidates

who roughly follow my way of thinking but also having the knowledge that

he or she will put the needs and desires of his or her district before

anything else. That’s all. It’s so simple that it’s a little too

profound to be followed by modern… Continue

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden On Violence Against Women:   We Have To Keep ‘Punching At It, And Punching At It, And Punching At It’

 The audience laughed as he said this.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that America needs to be “punching” back to combat violence against women during Wednesday’s Democratic debate.

Biden was asked if he would tackle specific issues regarding the #MeToo movement at the beginning of his presidency, if he were to be elected. The former vice president previously sponsored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which aimed to protect victims of domestic violence.

The presidential candidate responded to the question about assaulting women by using the phrase “punching” repeatedly, apparently not thinking about the implications of using such a word.

“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “So we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it. No, I really mean it.”

A few people laughed in the audience as he said this.

Biden added that it is important to pass the Violence Against Women Act, which has passed in the House and held up in the Senate. The former Vice President also suggested that America has to “fundamentally change the culture” of how women are treated, noting that it is “everyone’s responsibility.”

“It’s a gigantic issue, and we have to make it clear from the top, from the president on down that we will not tolerate it,” Biden said. “We will not tolerate this culture.”
