I think the reason why Mass has so many dumpy cities and towns is because its a beacon for people who want to benifit from social programs. We can't have those without lots of taxes now can we? There are also many of illegal alliens here as well, Many of which dont pay taxes because they work under the table. This is because there are lots of bleeding heart liberals who support it. It makes them feel all warm and fuzzy. Believe me I'm not one of them! The state police are not allowed to look for illegals and they are discouraged to do anything with them even if they had them in custody. Only if they are a violent offender would they do anything about it.
Our Governer Deval Patrick offered hope and change and a catchy phrase (together we can). Dear GOD does that sound familiar? Well....we got change alright, highest gas tax in the country plus they are going up on the tolls to boot! Oh yeah, get this. They are looking at putting a chip in your inspection sticker and charging by the frigging mile!!!!
Like they say on WTKK there are more people ON the cart than are pulling it. At what point does Atlas shrug his shoulders?
Besides that, I dont have any strong feelings about the matter.
