Proud to Be from Massachusetts

Wendell and the Paperwhites

I never get political on my blog but I have to make an exception here to say that Massachusetts 'Gets it'. The Independent Voters, of whom I am one, voted against the arrogance of Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats who have been trying to shove a deceptive 2000 page, "Trojan Horse", of a "Health Care" bill down our throats.

Forget all the sentimental drivel about 'Teddy's Seat' and 'Teddy's Legacy' and "making history". Teddy's gone and it's the "People's Seat", as it always was,  in a government supposed to be 'Of the People, By the People and FOR the People. 
I don't dislike Martha Coakley but she should know that Curt Shilling is not a Yankees fan and YES, she should have been standing outside Fenway Park, in the cold, shaking the hands of the "PEOPLE".

Is Scott Brown the answer? I don't know but it seems like he is listening and that's what I want from my elected representatives. It's about time.

I hear you, Mary. Lovely photo of Wendell. As for my Berlin, she deserves to have her portrait painted. Don't you think?

Amen, Sister!
I'd be proud if I was from Massachusetts, too.

Says the Voice From The Other Side.... I love you no matter that we stand on the opposite sides of the fence - I think we can hold hands right through that fence, no? I LOVE this photo of Wendell, and I think you should paint it. I will also not share my view of the MA vote. You'll glad, I'm sure!

Mary, THAT's what I'm TALKIN' 'BOUT!

Pee S: My mom loves Massachusetts 'cause that was the first New England state she ever went to. An' she LUVS New England!

So how is Scott working out? Glad to hear you are one of the sensible voters in Mass!
