Backtalk: 8/17/2018

NO RESPONSE: Talk about the cops not doing their jobs. There’s a sign on the Bridge Street bridge that says no panhandling and yet I’ve just watched two cops drive by as two bums kept going up to the cars and harassing people. Don’t they do their jobs anymore?

Lowell

CHAIN EVENTS: Every time I look out my window I see a UHaul truck and people with suitcases getting dropped off. Where are they coming from? Do these immigrants go to other places or just here? They’ve been living in the attics in the houses on my street. Why don’t the rich people take them into their homes?

Lowell

LETTING IT SLIDE: Do the people at City Hall actually go out and check on the housing in this city? A lot of places are rundown and yet they are filled with people and cars. Doesn’t anyone complain about the conditions of these places?

Lowell

REPEATING HISTORY: The people of Lowell, especially the Belvidere elites, should be proud. You put Doherty and Martin on the school board and another school superintendent is gone and the budget’s a mess. When are voters going to realize these two are bad for the schools?

Lowell

LET’S GET TOUGH: When are we going to bring back the death penalty in this state for cop killers? It’s getting scary out there. Two officers killed in one month and we do nothing about it. Get rid of the lenient judges and politicians who pamper criminals.

Chelmsford

NEVER HAPPY: Why are Democrats hoping that America fails? I am sick of it. They should want America to be great and everything is going great now.

Dracut

GOLDBRICKING IT: I waited two hours at the Social Security office today for what took 5 minutes once I was noticed by a clerk. Then she told me, “Did you know you could do this online?” They don’t want to work.

Lowell

WHY THE SILENCE?: Kim Jong Un returns the remains of missing servicemen from the Korean War. It didn’t happen under 16 years of Obama or Bush, but it happened under Donald Trump. And not a word of it on the front page of the newspapers or TV broadcasts.
