    Its an old slogan that today is back. Our governor wants to increase highway & Boston Harbor tunnels tolls up to $7 and make our gasoline taxes the highest in the nation. So much for the man who ran on the platform of " change ".
    One of his great ideas has been to not inform motorists when their regristration & licenses are up for renewal. This way people will be caught driving illegally, the monies spent to pay the fines will help the commonwealth.
    To help balance the budget , he laid off some low paying social workers and then managed to get a few friends some new jobs that pay $100,000+, which are so new that no one actually knows what they do.
    Our one party system is a joke.
    Its almost becoming mandatory that Speakers of the House will be charged with a serious crime.
    The salary increases that they give themselves is out of control & the pension system allow for double & triple dipping. Some are making more retired then they ever made " working ".
    The enforcement of current laws is screwy; knives over two&half inches are illegal, but machettes are not.
