Market Basket Newburyport, MA Last night when the news broke here in Massachusetts that the workers and former CEO Arthur T. Demoulas had prevailed and deal was finally signed for Arthur T. Demoulas to by the beleaguered Market Basket company from his rival cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas, I was among the many loyal customers who cheered the news. Twitter was abuzz with the news and many customers like myself chimed in to spread the news. If you don’t live in a community where there is a Market Basket grocery store, chances are you hadn’t been paying much attention to the Market Basket employees strike and all the many implications it carried for entire communities and the corporation itself. The employee strike … Continue reading
Gee: if a “strongarm” robbery took place and the store that was supposedly robbed do not believe they were robbed, what conclusion should we come to?
Anyone else mortally offended that there’s a Black man on the golf course who isn’t a caddy? … from one has-been hack … who seems to hate everyone and everything these days … Maureen Dowd of the NY Times … Continue reading

by Walter Brasch It’s 3 p.m., and you’re cruising down a rural road, doing about 50. A quarter mile away is a sign, with flashing yellow lights, alerting you to slow down to 15. It’s a school zone. But, you don’t see any children. Besides, you’re going to be late to your racquetball match. So, you just slide on past. You’re an independent long-haul trucker. You get paid by the number of miles you drive. If you work just a couple of hours longer every day than the limits set by the federal government—and if you can drive 75 or 80 instead of 65, you can earn more income. You have your uppers and energy drinks, so you … Continue reading
A year ago I wrote an article Where is the Justice for the Black Boy in America. In the article I wrote “America has a fear of the black boy, an individual who they have no relationship with and no desire to understand.” The fact they have no desire to understand or embrace the black male as a full fledge American citizen is at its core the very reason why Black America feels left out in the cold in American Society. America has created a systematic structure where politicians and law enforcement have worked together to control, humiliate, intimidate, and if all else fails incarcerate young black people. I don’t agree with the strong-arm tactics of police officers towards African-Americans, however … Continue reading
by Walter Brasch The House Select Committee on Intelligence, following almost a two-year intense investigation, unanimously determined there is no basis for what has become known as the Benghazi Scandal. The Committee consists of 12 Republicans and 9 Democrats. The pretend-scandal began Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorists raided the U.S. consulate, and killed the ambassador and three others. Although there was confusion, and the Obama administration didn’t have all the facts when it began to inform the American people about the events and the causes, there was no evidence of anything even remotely linked to a scandal. However, as expected, the blathering mouths of the Extreme Right Wing media pundits and politicians, and those who blindly parrot their … Continue reading
Because, again, Snowden is more concerned with embarrassing the USA in the eyes of the world, and debilitating or destroying our cyber-security if, say, Vladimir Putin wanted to launch a cyber-attack and cyber-war against the USA. Edward Snowden, no matter how “pure” his libertardian notions of his sovereign citizenship in the Country of “Me” has neatly segued from whistle-blower to traitor and quisling…. Continue reading
