Save Our State of Massachusetts
Letters to the editor and blog entries on news sites across the state are critical and timely to enlighten people to important issues that they otherwise might not be aware of. They only listen when we make ourselves heard. Election season is a little over a year away. While it’s NEVER TOO EARLY to begin informing your neighbors about their friendly legislators’ positions on issues, it can, however, be too late to try to steer some bad policies from being promulgated if efforts aren’t taken to do so, NOW.

AND, Cisco Systems is laying off approximately 16% of its workforce, some of which is in MA. State Street is laying off workers and our unemployment rate is hovering at 7.6% while NH is at 4%. Why is that? Could it be their great infrastructure, their world-class universities, etc which we don’t have? NOT! Or could it be the outrageous mandates and taxes that we do have?! YES, that’s it.
A blogger states: Lots of high school graduates, including law-abiding US citizens, can’t afford to go to college right away. Those people get jobs. Some get a second job. Some join the military. Some go to night school. Some attend college when they’re older and have saved some money.
Yep. Been there, done that. Illegals get all the breaks.
