Stan Rosenberg – Frauds and Harper Lee – SP Cams-Dennis&Callahan Scripted? -Incestuous Local Media

What did you guys think of the first Baker/Rosenberg/DeLeo budget?

I’ll tell you what I thought. Stan Rosenberg is in over his head and the Senate will suffer because of it. Did Stan get anything significant for the Senate?

Was this budget one of many frustrations the very liberal Stan is having with the conservative Baker and the more conservative DeLeo whom he needlessly shot arrows at by demanding Senators have more than one vote in conference committees?

Stan lasted one term as Ways and Means chair. Then he went back to the back bench until time and the Freddie Wyshak Vacuum sucked more and more talent and experience out of the building leaving him as the last man standing sort of thing.


Harper Lee just made it easier to identify phony knee-jerk liberals who couldn’t put together an original thought if their lives depended on it.

Is it that hard to understand a person believing black people are inferior to whites would still defend one when wrongfully accused?

What if the black guy was guilty? Still, how hard is to believe that the same man would defend him against vigilantes?

Doesn’t matter. Tom Robinson didn’t rape that white woman.

But these fraud liberals. Not the real liberals, just the frauds. They make-up most of them. Same as conservatives. Idiots who just want to be part of something but unfortunately beyond raving pompoms they’re useless.

I agree with matt Connolly. Something about the Boston cop’s kid getting set-up by the FBI for the terrorist charge leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

The kid has a lengthy and well-documented history of mental illness including multiple hospitalizations.

Last year the father informs the FBI about him. Think about that.

What did the ghost police, I mean the terrorist fighters do?

They took the lay-up of course. Rather than diffuse they poured gasoline on the situation. They fired the mentally ill kid up.

Then they got him all sorts of guns and artillery. Stuff he would never have been able to get on his own.

Game over. The kids going away for a long time. You saw all those weapons the FBI displayed. Thank God they are off the streets. And thank God the FBI put them on the streets so they could take them off the streets

Take another bow.

The boss of the Ghost Police, I mean FBI Director, recently held a press conference where he bragged that his people prevented ten terrorist attacks from occurring during the July Fourth weekend.

Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters or the FBI?

When will Governor Baker make video cameras mandatory on state police cruisers?  For crissakes we can at least step up to the 1990s when the other states did it.

Our local media is so incestuous it’s gotten to the point that I would even trust a box score they report.

What’s worse is the self-importance. Mostly it’s just masquerading insecurities but obnoxiousness best describes it.

How about WEEI Sports Radio going all WWE on us and scripting internal feuds to pump up ratings? A bizarre rift between Dennis and Callahan has spilled onto the front page of the Herald. (see incestuous relationships above)

Their shows have turned into a schoolgirls lunch table. Jesus Christ guys, I don’t care how much they’re paying you, have some self-respect? You’re worse than The View.

Am I the only one who is a tad skeptical about John Dennis’s recent rehab stint? Something fishy about his “new life”. Too much too soon or something like that.

Anyway, if you write fiction for a living The Dennis and Callahan Show is hiring.

About Ernie Boch, III

  • One thing about the budget debate that I found incredibly odd was Baker’s justification for eliminating the corporate deduction. Baker said he doesn’t believe eliminating the deduction is a tax hike and so he has not broken his promise to not raise taxes.


    For now, Baker is choosing to view the repeal of the corporate tax deduction as something other than a tax hike. “FAS-109 has never been implemented here in Massachusetts, so, therefore, basically taking what has been standard practice and using that as a mechanism to fund the Earned Income Tax Credit, I think that’s a good thing and I don’t believe it’s a tax increase,” he said. A one-year suspension of FAS-109 was included in his budget proposal.

    That’s fine, and I’m not taking issue with it. The odd thing is that Baker’s spokesperson goes further to reiterate what I pointed out numerous times during the primary that Baker never signed the no new taxes pledge.

    Tim Buckley, the governor’s spokesman, said Baker never signed an anti-tax pledge when he was running for office because it would have prevented him from cleaning up things in the tax code such as FAS-109.

    Why even mention that, especially immediately after explaining that eliminating the deduction wouldn’t run afoul of the pledge? Is Baker signaling that unequivocal tax increases are coming in the future? Now might be a good time to get him to sign the pledge as a reassurance against that.

  • I don’t think I’d use that term to label what you describe, but you are definitely describing a real thing. If a person has done something bad, then liberals can’t fathom that person being good in any other way. They must be wholly bad and completely wrong about anything they may have ever said. There are other examples I could cite, but most recent one I noticed is this attack on Bill Cosby’s “pound cake” speech.

    Taking a look back at the speech 11 years later in light of what we now know about Cosby, the speech is rife not only with inaccuracies and flawed premises, but immeasurable hypocrisy. What follows is a detailed, but by no means exhaustive, annotation of The Pound Cake Speech.

    The author seems to purposefully misconstrue what Cosby says in order to make it a “lie” that he can then refute.

    This one of the first things the author tackles.

    Ladies and gentlemen, these people set, they opened the doors, they gave us the right, and today, ladies and gentlemen, in our cities and public schools we have fifty percent drop out.

    The author refutes this by citing the national dropout rate of blacks and hispanics.

    The black high school dropout rate in 2004, when this speech was given, was about 13 percent, not 50 percent, according to the Pew Research Center. Today it is eight percent, a historic low.

    It’s clear from what Cosby said that he talking specially about the inner city drop out rate. What explains the author’s blind spot here? He did want to see that which got in the way of Cosby being wholly wrong about everything because of the rape allegations. He continues to do this in his piece and repeatedly refers back to this lie about the drop out rate.

  • Particularly, I’m interested in this:

    O’Reilly listed aid for reproductive health services as one of the sectors the budget bulked up. Over $600,000 went to comprehensive family planning, which includes confidential physical exams, HIV and STI testing, pregnancy testing, birth control and other services. O’Reilly hopes the funding, a portion of which goes to Planned Parenthood for health services other than abortion, will be safe from Baker’s veto pen.

    Stan is in over his head. How true! He doesn’t realize how to use the institutional checks and balances. That means even if your party controls the Corner Office, it is always of paramount importance to not show deference and set out an independent policy agenda. DeLeo has this game down as his loose relationship with Deval Patrick proved. We can thank DeLeo that we didn’t have an avalanche of taxes from soda and beyond.

    Poor Stan. He’s probably trembling because he has two more GOP senators to deal with than President T. Murray did. Not that the minority caucus matters much but even veterans like Stan pick up the vibes.
