I Am Not The Only One with a Problem With Kerry and his Trash Talking and Dismissing of The Tea Party

    Seems our state Senior Senator John Kerry was picked for the 'super committee' to help end the grid-lock in Washington and find trillions of spending cuts before November.  Since I consider him part of the problem and not part of the solution, this is almost laughable but not funny.  What would this man see to cut when in all these years he has voted for more taxes and more regulations?  Why do the voters of Massachusetts still keep these guys in office? One reason is that their are more takers than givers and for that you can look across the pond to see the eventual results.

from today's paper

Sen. John Kerry is really ticked at our free press, not liking one little bit how it affords ordinary citizen critics of our government a chance to be heard.
These crowned despots were as serious as a branding iron in the face. In the early 1600s, when a Scotsman said he believed the Bible a better guide than kings, the English Court of the Star Chamber granted no trial in deciding to afflict that punishment along with cutting open his nose and hacking off his ears, one account recalls.
In the American colonies, however, newspapers got rambunctious despite laws disallowing criticism even if it were true — in fact, especially if it were true, historians say. Ready to have at royal governors unlike almost any newspapers anywhere else in the world, many kicked rear ends whenever they thought rear ends were in need of kicking, and wise juries said the truth's OK to print, no matter what the law harrumphs.
