Trash-talking Worcester, MA

By Michael Gaffney Let’s be honest about what makes the other two-thirds of Worcester unattractive to live in. It’s trash. I’m not writing about the west side with the manicured lawns where the majority homeowners’ biggest complaint about trash is when it blows out of a recycling bin or the cheaply made, but overly expensive [...]

Dropping in the polls, Senator Warren goes off the reservation

By Michael Gaffney Just last week, noted that Senator Warren wasn’t getting any love in Worcester. A recent granite state poll put her at 5% in New Hampshire, a drop of 12% from the prior poll.

Rep Richard Neal – Trump’s tax returns and abuse of power

By Michael Gaffney Who is Rep. Richard Neal? Well, he's the western Massachusetts congressman that chairs the Ways & Means Committee. Keep in mind that Worcester's own Rep Jim McGovern chairs the Rules committee. For a party that claims to be about diversity and accuses everyone of racism, they have no shortage of old white [...]

Rep. Jim McGovern: “We have your back, @Ilhan”

By Michael Gaffney Rep. Jim McGovern joins the anti-American crowd, supports Rep. Ilhan Omar's statement that the attack on America on 9/11 was just "some people did something". Apparently, President Trump tweeting Omar's own words is hate speech in McGovern's world. He's right! The words Omar used to describe the loss of nearly 3,000 Americans that were [...]

By Michael Gaffney [Disclaimer: I don’t know John Monfredo. I’ve never had a conversation with John Monfredo.

A tale of two cities: Boston races to the bottom, Worcester says “Thank you!”

By Michael Gaffney If the politicians in Worcester weren’t so busy engaging in general pettiness, they’d get together and thank Boston for making them an attractive bedroom community. No, it’s not because Gov. Charlie Baker has finally fixed the commuter rail or added new trains to make the commute from Worcester to Boston practical. It [...]
