Five Things you should know, Today, July 6, 2012

1. RIP individual price stickers

Massachusetts lost one of the things that made it unique, oh and well anit-competitive yesterday.  That’s right it will soon no longer be illegal to not mark each and every item in a grocery store with a price sticker.  It is just going to be so hard to shop now, how do all the people in those other states do it?

2. Kum Bah Yah, Beacon Hill Edition

The love fest between the GOP leadership and the corrupt Democratic party on Beacon Hill continues.  This time in a piece in the Attleboro Sun.

There was a time when Statehouse Republicans could be counted on to vote against any budget proposed by the majority Democrats, but for the past two years the GOP has been partners in passing the annual spending plans.

The piece goes on to praise the Democrats for not raising taxes.  It’s not just the taxes, however, its the runaway spending.

3. Beacon Hill Skip Day

Skip Days aren’t just for Seniors anymore.  If the State House News Daily Schedule can be believed, today is Skip Day on Beacon Hill.  The Schedule lists one item on the schedule for today, in Washington DC no less.

4. Crash Murray to attend transportation bill signing

Speaking of the only event on the schedule.  LG Tim “Crash” Murray will be going to DC to attend an Obama signing ceremony.  What is Obama signing? That’s right a transportation bill.

5.  One week until Joe Sheehan returns

In one week, our good friend Joe Sheehan will return from National Guard Basic Training.  Specialist Sheehan has certainly missed an interesting 2.5 months.  Lets review what he’s missed:

When he went away, the Liberty Slate had just won a majority of the convention delegates.  Joe missed all the fun of loyalty oaths, and perjury proof affidavits.

When he went away we first found out Elizabeth Warren listed herself as Native American.  He’s gonna be surprised when he picks up the Herald next Saturday and it is still front page news.

When he left, 26 House Republicans hadn’t yet voted for price controls in health care.

What else have I missed that Joe has missed?
