What is wrong with Worcester and how to fix it

By Michael Gaffney I’m sure the pie-in-the-sky Worcester reactionists will have a fit over the premise that anything is wrong with Worcester.

Never mind the paid for propaganda from “alternative media” which I’ve already written [...]

I’ve previously written [...]

City Councilor Moe Bergman doesn’t believe in intermarriage?

State Rep. Jim O’Day and the profit in drug addiction

By Michael Gaffney The West Boylston Town Semi-Annual meeting was a real treat for those of us that follow politics. As always, they saved the best item for last, the prohibition of “Marijuana Establishments”. I support the will of the voters on the issue of the sale of marijuana. When the Worcester City Council was [...]

Rep. McGovern and WDCC campaign staffer calls union, teachers, and city “very racist”

By Michael Gaffney He couldn’t help himself. It’s not unexpected as anyone that has been reading this blog has been made well aware of his continuous bashing of the people and city he represents.

Rep. McGovern’s BFF Rep. Omar goes all in for killing Jews and Christians, he continues to support her

By Michael Gaffney As we know Rep. Jim McGovern has never supported the Jewish people. It’s not surprising, because he hates Americans too. Remember this: In response he tweeted “We have your back, @Ilhan” when Rep. Ilhan Omar was called out for tweeting that the attack on America on 9/11 was just “some people did [...]
