I'm Tired Of Gun Violence and Death

I'm tired of reading and hearing about...Home Invasions, Armed Robberies, Car Jackings, Pistol Whippings, Murders...

What about decent folks, children living with Sounds of Gun Shots, Shot Spotters,Shell Casings and Sirens, scared to sit or sleep near a window.....Homicides detectives asking questions?.....
Where I live things are getting bad. Some people think their cities are safe, exempt from the "bad criminal" We are getting a rude wake up call North of Boston, and it's going to get worse!

Send The Message "Massachusetts Ain't Playin' Around"

Some folks are pissed off at me for writing and posting this on various social media.

No (4 major) newspapers have published it as my reader opinion.
I don't know why not.

I think Massachusetts State Government and Law Enforcement Agencies should get together and get funding to increase activity by the State Police, ATF, etc., to deter some, if not all Illegally Purchased Unlicensed, and Smuggled Weapons coming into the State.

Racism is Real and It Hurts!

As someone who has faced covert and the "in your face" kind of hateful racist actions all my life,, it makes me so discouraged that people young & old in this country are so intent on hurting others.

Thankfully my parents did not teach or condone racism in our home.

YOUNG TEARS

This blog is for people of All Races who want to share & express their hurt, pain and other feelings regarding racism. Hate messages and posts not accepted!

When I was a teenager, I worked at a supermarket as a cashier. A man always came to my checkout. He made it plain that he did not like Black, African Americans. He would throw his money down, refuse to take the change and reciept i handed him. He told me he "did not want to get his hands dirty touching me."

BE STRONG AND MARATH(ON): This year, we’re all mentally training for the Boston Marathon.

Team Brookline has 42 runners, 4 charitable causes…
and advice from its own mental health expert.

Everyone who ran in, attended, watched, supported the Marathon last year keenly felt the effects of the day and what followed. For many of us, those feelings will come flooding back this year on April 21. But runners training for this year’s Boston Marathon are deep into that experience already.

Auto Show in Boston this Week

It's here again. We shouldn't be surprised because it's mid January, but the New England Auto Show has shown up again at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. For locals who haven't been to the NY Auto Show or the one in Detroit, the one here is adequate. While you won't see a ton of prototypes on the show floor, you will get a chance to see a bunch of new models all together in one place.

Ray Flynn: "We must do more to help the poor..."

Former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn starts off 2014 with an editorial in today's Boston Herald about the need to help those who are less fortunate with less money available today. Flynn states:


Boston is not the city it should be. We must begin to turn our attention once again to building strong families and affordable neighborhoods. It’s not too late. We have a city with many caring and concerned citizens. The only thing that stands in our way of being a great city is our political will.

Drug Culture at The Boston Globe?

Well, at least we know what they're smoking over at 135 Morrissey Boulevard...

Steve Tompkins registered as a Democrat on April 1, 2013

You know when you are heading for victory when anonymous posters attack and ridicule you. It always out of fear, hatred, and jealousy that these "stalker trolls" attack you when you are on the brink of success and triumph.

My good friend Moe Love obviously does not like the fact that yes I am a former Republican. However, fortunately I am in good company.
