An enemy is dead. Good. We need more of that. I don't care how he died, I really don't. End results count, and the end result is that an enemy is dead. It's a good day. I keep my pity for someone more deserving.


OK, I'm buying what you're selling. My first reaction is to feel bad for his family....but they're probably socialist *******s too!

Like others have said I could care less about the man and good riddance.
He spent a career infringing on the constitutional rights of citizens along with that troll Bloom Turd and others of their ilk
He signed with him as an enemy of the constitution and BOR and frankly while he was taking away the rights of law abiding citizens, he did little to nothing about solving the crimes with guns in the cities he served!
You reap what you sow and besides, he will have enough supposed bleeding hearts democrats the next few days pandering for votes in his name to make up for my own lack of concern.

I'm gay about it, one less POS to campaign to take away people's rights, to promote violence against others, to raise ****ing taxes, to foster the athmosphere of corruption.

I get it, dude blessed some youth hockey thing construction etc. The kind of damage these commies do, the kind of aggravation they bring (like innocent Marsha) is multiplied the higher they climb.


So what about the harm these parasites bring onto other people? You peasants need to spread your buttcheecks wider and thank your glorious rulers for another foot deeper into your colon.
I agree!
Death to all scum, no sympathy for shitapples.

Anywhere in 1985 or so, would be fine
am I the only bastard who finds it quite ironic that the "welcome to Boston Signs" still read "Mayor Thomas A. Menino" at the bottom?

It was somewhat funny a few weeks ago seeing as Walsh has been mayor for months, but now a dead man is listed as mayor.

Now that is some Boston Strong.

Before, it was a cute oversight.....now, it'll be a permanent memorial.

They're going to be enjoying all the loot he stashed away all these years. At least he won't be.

Feel bad for his family and don't wish a cancer death on anyone, but I'm not going to pretend I have kind words for that tyrannical piece of shit.

I DVR the 6pm chips reruns on comcast 292. I go to watch it at 7:30 and it's an hr of F'ing mumbles. I wanted to use a porta potty as a weapon at that point. The whitewashing isn't as bad as it was with fatboy kennedy but it's getting close.

Iirc its because a lot of those signs are due up to be replaced in the next couple years anyways, Walsh said it makes more sense for the city to just replace them incrementally as needed rather than do them all at once.

That is shockingly pragmatic.

mumbles was no friend to South Boston or any lifelong resident for that matter.

He sold out to big money, out of towners and was corrupt as the day was long.

The never ending media coverage right now is nauseating and full of lies.

i dodnt live in boston, so i could care less one way or the other. But i do vomit a little in my mouth whenever people get on tv/radio and try to reminice about "How Wonderful" some dead politician was. They are supposed to be servants of the people. Why are they treated like gods if they happen to do a modestly acceptable job while in office?

I have nothing good to say about Mumbles or his politics but it's still unfortunate that he died of cancer so early into his retirement. R.I.P. Mumbles.

But he made that bed by staying 20 yrs and not wanting to give up the power. Also, his "job" as mayor was exactly construction or a lumberjack. He made photo ops and cut ribbons.

The public service stuff pisses me off with all of them. Maybe you can say Romney was a public servant as governor because he did it for free and did not take a paycheck. Meninio got paid something like $175k/yr, plus pension, health ins, etc. Where is a brain dead twit like him going to make over $50k if not for the gov't. Kennedy made millions and died with a $10 million total sum pension.

If you get paid for it, it's not public service, it's a job. And many of these like menino go into gov't poor or average and leave rich and help friends and family feed off the working people and get rich.

Boris, come on. Hitler murdered 6 million people. Stalin murdered millions of people. Mumbles murdered what? A few too many calzones?

I got really ticked off with the statement "he ruled with heavy hand" .... we are talking about "public servant" here ... this is exactly the attitude that turns out into subjects by accepting that a "public servant" rules us with heavy hand. "Ruling subjects" is completely unacceptable in a free society or at least a society that tries to maintain the illusions of such.

Unless these petty tyrants are dragged through mud and all their trespasses on freedom and liberty of other people are memorialized as their only legacy, we will have never ending stream of copycats. Crime without consequence breeds more crime. Here we say loud and clear that infringing liberty is not acceptable.

exactly, look at Biden, the man is a fool. May be somewhat harmless, but he is a fool. How the **** do we have mentally deficient guy as a VP? This is a great country with so many brilliant men and women, and this is who we have for VP representing them? This is ****ing unreal.

Also, yes, most congresscritters exit their "service" with their worth over millions, at least. It's a fact of life. Not all of them were millionaires before election.

Cancer is communist and no, I'm not sorry for this POS nor for any other commies in this state. Good riddance.
Do your friends agree with you on everything?

I lived in Boston for most of his reign. Obviously I did not agree with his policies towards firearms and many other subjects.

But no one I know worked as hard at their job as Mayor Menino did. I believe he literally worked himself to death.

I had opportunities on several occasions to speak to him one-on-one about a number of issues, including public schools, policing, firearm laws, and motorcycle parking. In all these matters, my proposals differed sharply from his stated policies or existing practice. And he heard me out on each one of these issues, and told me what his own opinion was and what he was willing to do, or not.

Perhaps more tellingly, I socialized with him on a number of private family occasions. I would never broach any "business" on these occasions as in my opinion it was private time.

But Menino never considered himself to be "off duty." He would listen to anyone and the fact that he wanted to watch the Patriots took a back seat to a citizen with something to talk about.

Some of you who are deriding him seem incapable of listening to any ideas that don't agree with your own. I'm probably as principled as anyone, but I'm pretty sure that my ideas aren't always right and others are not always wrong.

The man is dead. I respect his efforts on behalf of the city and its' people, even those that were in my opinion misguided. I feel bad for his daughter and grandchildren. And life goes on for the rest of us.

I don't think it has anything to do with that, really- and has everything to do with the fact that a huge part of his "work" was to suppress people's rights. That's a tough pill to swallow, that's not like getting into a disagreement over the mayor not doing enough to fix potholes or something. The problem is that after a point it crosses a line between being "just politics" and being personal. Having a policy in place which effectively strips citizens of their rights might as well be him pinching a loaf on someone's thanksgiving dinner. That's why people here have such derision for the guy. If it was simply a matter of him being an inept socialist people could probably let that go, but it went way beyond that.

And if you dared go against him or you didn't go kiss the ring before wanting to develop a building, etc. he would use the gov't to attack you. That pizza shop owner embarassed mumbles with the pro bush sign and the hetchmen went to thump him. He may have let people speak this mind, but he didn't care what you were saying. It was mumbles way or no way. He ran Boston like chicago is run. He fell into the job when flynn left early and used the levers to stay in power and line his friends and families pockets. I'm not missing him.

This. It's unforgivable, even in death.

Yeah, all that stuff, the corruption, etc, is pretty gay, but it pales in comparison to active suppression of an individual's civil rights.

On April 25, 2006, Menino and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hosted a summit at Gracie Mansion in New York City, during which the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition was formed. The coalition, of which Menino remained co-chair until the finality of his mayorality, stated its goal of "making the public safer by getting illegal guns off the streets."

“Now is the time to turn words into action, now is the time to mobilize, one million people who signed our Demand A Plan petition for the sake of the 33 lives lost every day to gun violence.”

With Menino and Patrick scheduled to testify in favor of new gun control measures, the State House hearing will swing the spotlight back onto the highly charged issue nine months after the school shootings in Newtown, Conn.



the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

it's not a difference of opinions, it's failure to follow the Law of the Land.

heard on the news he voted two weeks ago.

He put in the absentee ballot but he hasn't voted until it's counted. He's dead, that ballot should be destroyed now. You cannot vote if you are dead, but I'm not holding my breath that some Boston hack would do the right thing and pull the ballot.
