Herald owner didn't let impending bankruptcy get in the way of his bank account

The Herald self-reports that owner Pat Purcell pulled out nearly $1 million in annual pay from the troubled tabloid - as well as payments for a golf-club membership - as the paper spiraled towards bankruptcy.

Gee!

Think we'll get a strongly worded column on the hackerama at the Herald from Boston's oldest racist Howie Carr or will he just continue haranguing any local pol for their family and financial ties? Except his good friend Shauna O'Connell.

So I'll just sit back on Twitter today and watch the silence from the local media maggots who fell all over themselves to bemoan the loss of the Herald, even the Globies whose owner would sell them out in a minute if he had to pay for more soccer balls or Linda's increasing Botox bills.

Ever notice how occasionally

Howie has to leave his radio show of kissing traitorous ass and hating the colored early to go to a time for Shauna O'Connell?

A good time, I'll wager...

Comes up with plan to get out from under his debts in part by screwing workers who paid into a pension plan, in some cases for decades. SHOCKING.

How conservatives think:
-If you are a white rich male its fine to take a million dollars while screwing people out of millions of their hard earned dollars. Hell, you can even be president.
-If you are a black teen and you are caught stealing food from a store? Electric chair.

Then why is this legal?

We have had a democratic legislature and washington delegation for years?

Where they been? Yelling on sunday morning talk shows about how they are fighting for us?

And if you think this behavior is just white people, you're either a racist or new around Uhub.

Not white people, not black people.

Just people.

Oh, Kinopio

I've never heard of anyone getting serious time for "stealing food from a store" let alone capital punishment.

Check that. I'm reading about the Ukrainian famine of 1932. The communists indeed did kill people for stealing food, but not too many black teens. Mostly kulaks, who were small property owners. I mean sure, capitalism has things like company owners giving themselves excessive salaries and screwing their employees over, but I would say compared to starving the population to prove that collectivization works, the flaws of capitalism might not be too bad.

What's mind-boggling

What's mind boggllng is that the more blatantly false Kinopio's statements become the more "likes" he(?) gets. 29 likes for the above electric chair comment, 37 for the earlier "cops kill tens of thousands each year" comment. Proof yet again that conservatives don't have a monopoly on mindless groupthink.
