SO, we cannot say GOD or the Pledge Of Allegiance in schools , or wear religious slogans on clothingRead More in schools, but the KKK's right to freedom of speech and hateful bigotry is NOT a hate crime and is allowed to uphold their own freedoms in society ???????? What am I missing here. ???????

Let's ask our state and local government to help the wind turbine victims in Massachusetts. We allRead More know the government wants the minority of residents to lose their health and property rights with NO compensation so the majority can enjoy fossil free air- Call your local politicians and help make them understand that Massachusetts is creating a second class group of citizens called the "wind turbine victims"

"mystuy" -- Your lugubrious pedantic ostentatious tedious sanctimonious obsequiousRead More obstinate self-pity really piles on the white-guilt but guess what. White people are getting real tired of feeling guilty about something that happened long ago that they had nothing to do with. Assume some responsibility for your own failings.

Lots of important things going on. One being Russia slowly taking over portions of the UkraineRead More under false pretenses of "protecting Russian speaking residents from aggression by a US backed terrorist regime", and we get stories on peanut butter and fluff.

The Fluffernutter SHOULD be the symbol of Massachusetts POLITICIANS at all levels. - - - They wasteRead More time on FLUFF and NUTTERY. - - - But, perhaps, it is not entirely the pols fault. The lapdog media must share part of the blame. - - - A case in point: This stupid story made Patch, but hugely wasteful public works projects and gross public sector union contracts are never mentioned. - - - But the pols know perfectly well they will NEVER be held to account for ANYTHING, because they can distract the media and the public with nonsense like a state sandwich. - - - I think we should have a 'state horses anatomy part'. I leave it to the reader to figure out WHICH part I'd suggest... HINT: Look under the tail.

Hey Amy RLB, whatever that means, why are you talking about all .. what did you call them.....Read More libiots..... when there is only one person in this entire discussion that called anybody a woman hater? Do you have a problem with dealing with this single discussion thread, must you broaden the discussion to everybody? All libiots aren't here to defend themselves. The one person that call you republicant's woman haters is here and can defend their remarks. Just a thought.

This is a great article. If your financial institution has guarantees on fraudulent charges and theyRead More try to stick you with the bill or change certain terms and conditions without consideration or notice, make sure you seek legal advice from an attorney.

Why are all the dependents so angry? They should be thanking us hard working intelligent people forRead More providing for them. I guess they have been dependent for so long, that they just think this is The way life is supposed to be. To all you that depend on democratic hand outs: it doesn't have to be this way. Just vote for leaders that know how capitalism works, so you can get a job, and be just like we smart, conservative people. It's a better life then just being a bitter twit like super size idiot!

this "to me" is not funny, the swat teams are used for serious issues, hostage taking,Read More etc. to have a swat team called to a home behind a video game is stupid, these swat members are trained to save lives, etc. to be called to a home behind a video game is not funny, what happens if a REAL call comes in and swat is needed there, I hope they catch the idiot that called swat and he gets what he/she deserves

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.

FREE SPEECH, our 1st AMENDMENT RIGHT is a Constitutional right and a integral part of who we are asRead More a NATION. Earned by our Fore Fathers and Fore Mothers and relinquished to All Americans. To bad Benicia Patch doesn't feel this way. I'M APPALLED AT HOW THEY CENSORED and BANNED THE BLACK PANTHER OF POETRY FROM SPEAKING ON THIS RAG!!! They've even taken down his profile; even the KKK deserve the RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH in AMERICA.. SHAME ON BENICIA PATCH(how un-AMERICAN)................."If the specter of whistle-bearing block captains roaming the streets dressed in (reflective?) white sheets is a cure worse than the illness, residents have little recourse. Courts have consistently recognized the KKK’s right to free speech".
Grumpy Old Man April 24, 2014 at 02:02 pm
@Charles Taite - As one of the commentators responding to and to whom Black Panther of PoetryRead More responded I happen to agree with you. I don't know whether Patch removed him or whether he did so himself. I for one did not flag any of his comments as offensive regardless of my personal dislike of some of the comments he made. If Patch did so shame on Patch. P.S. As much as I have issues with what he wrote he is no where close to the KKK for bigotry or racist beliefs or talk but your point is well taken.
