I want the Governor to include bullying within DCF run facilities - and by the DCF itself - to haveRead More more safeguards in place and exercised properly so as not to entertain unwarranted 51As being enacted against innocent parties. That would reduce caseload for the workers and the state HHS burgeoning budget!
Ken B. April 24, 2014 at 05:49 pm
So, does this mean that the DCF has to stop bullying the Pelletiers ?

Not in Framingham and not in Natick and no where near MetroWest, so why is this on my local Patch?Read More We don't care about news in Medford or Falmouth here in MetroWest! And just so you know we have plenty of places in Framingham and Natick to buy alcohol!
Sandra Mercier April 24, 2014 at 05:33 pm
This is the problem you can buy Alcohol everywhere . there is nothing for the kids to do inRead More Attleboro !! we should have something for them to do . like an Roller skating or an Arcade ! They need something to do instead of getting in trouble/ Drinking and Drugs !!!!!!!

Going to be tough to sell Natick Patch will very little Natick news. If I owned a business in NatickRead More I would NOT advertise. Maybe you should look for Massachusetts or National sales reps as that is all I see on Natick Patch is Massachusetts and National news!

@Gerson Goldstein You can say God in school, just like the Klan can say what they wish. SchoolsRead More can't force God on kids. You don't seem to understand the 1st Amendment.

The Massachusetts Democratic "Party " is having a ball destroying the lives of the windRead More turbine victims. How about saying a prayer for the victims and pass it along ?

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.

Tom Hollman,all good points,but please,stop with the CAPS.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 02:54 pm
I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

This is a great article.

Steve Marino, Super Lemming just wanders the Patch sites, probaly following me and making asinineRead More statements (Trolling) to rile people up and then he vanishes. Typical Liberal COWARD.

J Parker who do u want to be president?
Steve Marino April 24, 2014 at 03:55 pm
@Matt, any one that runs for president that is a fiscal conservative would be a far better choiceRead More then a candidate like Hillary that has no clue how capitalism works. We don't need more of the same as we have. Increasing the poor, and killing the middle class is not success. We need a complete reversal of policy to get there, not the same policy that we currently have.

@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.
