A Good Day For Amherst



Amherst Town Manager John Musante, Governor Patrick, Stan Rosenberg 10/21/14


Today was a good day for local government: Dave Sullivan took his oath of office as Northwestern District Attorney, our "top cop" so to speak, and Amherst's own Stan Rosenberg ascended to President of the 189th Massachusetts Senate.



The Eastern centric State Legislature will have a hard time ignoring Western Massachusetts over the next few years.

And since Stan is a proud UMass graduate, good news for our flagship of higher education and the town they call home.

Unfortunately Stan's ceremony was marred by the collapse of his long time friend, well known UMass Journalism Professor Ralph Whitehead.

Fortunately staff on hand knew how to use a defibrillator and it sounds like they got him to Mass General Hospital in time.

The only thing good about today is that loser of a Governor is finished. Wow do liberals know how to screw things up. Give these guys time. Western Mass. or not the wrench will soon be jamming the gears.

The election of Rosenberg now confirms Mass as the new Politburo.

Yeah, all this low unemployment is killing us.

That "Top Cop" attitude is why the police are above the law, abusing and killing citizens with little consequence.

Worship away.

Police have a right to protect themselves. You have a constitutional obligation to listen to a police officer when you are detained. Seems some people don't want to listen, others want to attack officers. Both contribute to their deaths once they refuse to listen. Bottom line is that any police officer in the country is authorized to use deadly force when there is an imminent threat of serious bodily injury or death. Thank God for the police!!

"Yeah, all this low unemployment is killing us."

Oh yes, he said sarcastically, the cops get up every day looking for someone to kill. Jesus, talk about a broad brush.

Depends. Are you looking at Gov unemployment numbers or the actual unemployment numbers. Big difference whether you look at reality or that ridiculous formula used by the government who doesn't count the over 9 million people who gave up looking for work. The real number is about twice what the government reports.

That's not a broad brush. Its a liberal brush.

Oh! You're right. And that's a very narrow brush indeed! Lol

For many, the most imminent threat is the police...mass imprisonment and the war on people...I mean drugs...did not help the massive tensions.

Actually I think Cowardly Anon Nitwits create bigger tensions.

Cowardly anons create more tensions than police.....what is this a word jumble?

Cowardly anons don't lock people in boxes for non-violent actions to make a living. Cowardly anons don't lock up more people than China, that is your beloved police. Cowardly anons are not the reason that 1 out of 20 people in their 20's goes to Jail, your beloved police are. Cowardly anons are not the ones detaining me because I don't have a crew cut, your beloved police are. And your beloved police have been doing this since far before the word anon was mentioned, they did it before the internet was even invented, gasp.

I feel bad for those with kids, the primary/usual suspects.

Hey 10:12, when's the last time you got locked up? Who are all these people you say the police are locking up? "More people than China??" Don't make claims, show facts and sources. Where are you getting these ideas from? The Valley Advocate??

I agree that some anons are cowardly, some may be nitwits. But not all are cowardly nitwits . You can fool some of the people all of the time...(etc)
