The Fox Guarding the Henhouse

( – promoted by Garrett)

One gets the impression that the never ending drip, drip, drip of pension abuse stories could go on forever. Perhaps the pending closure of the unlikliest of all agrieved parties, The Boston Globe, will slow down the exposure of what is an immoral, repugnant, and disgusting display of greed, corruption, and selfishness afflicted upon the average Joe by those now being asked to fix the problem. Yesterday’s Herald outlined for all to see how campaign insiders were rewarded with plum jobs in positions of profound responsibility. Holding a campaign sign now qualifies one for a job in the education department making $100,000? That story is at:…

Today we learn all over again that the Legislature has a secret oath, the one taken behind the curtain, a sworn oath that includes “screwing the little guy whenever possible.” That bit of disgusting news can be found at:…

Is it even possible that the architect of much of this mess and the chief finger pointer, Deval himself, is even mentioned as a candidate for the US Supreme Court? One assumes that integrity matters when looking through resumes for such a position. One also assumes that intellectural dishonesty is not part of the job description for one of the most important positions in the world. Hey Deval – What did you know and when did you know it? In other words, your words do not match your actions.

As for the legislature, there is nothing like a bit of a recession and a spotlight piece to jog your memory. Are we to believe that Murray, DeLeo, et al did not know this crap was going on? Ya right! Funny what a shot of a pol stuffing cash in her bra will do to your sense of outrage. Funny what a perverted Senator fondling women randomly as they sat on park benches will do your your sense of morality. And, oh by the way, one wonders how it is remotely possible that the House members that voted for Sal did not think he was a short timer even as they elected him and enabled the man to boost a pension that some of us hope he will someday be forfieting.

The fox is guarding the henhouse and there are fingers being pointed in all directions. Meanwhile, you and I are getting the middle finger salute each and every day from a potential Supreme Court Justice (gag me) and Legislators that care about no one but themselves and the chosen few.
