POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 30, 2010 Page 7 Mrs. Murphy... As I See It The Tea Party enough population. Now to _ ...... Movement held make the point: East Boston ........... on the Boston and Revere have many };  . ,' J Common re- cently drew thousands of people, many of which signed up to join the move- ment. Sarah Palin who is indeed a "Patriot," made a very impressive speech. Her words were so true, re- lating to current politics in this country. The ultra liberal Boston Globe did not define the moment and give Palin the applause she deserved. The government should be working for us, not us working for the government. When Obama- care takes hold in 2014, the government will become our largest employer! The Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Harry Reid and the deceased Ted Kennedy movement will be the bomb that destroys our democracy. All of which will have no affect on them. These people are very rich and live in a world of their own. The Tea Party is gathering support from concerned citizens across the nation to try and put a stop to the ultra liberal democrat madness[ Many party voters who supported Obama realize now they've made a huge mistake ... Now that casino gambling has passed in the House, how will the Senate vote? Will they support bringing jobs to Massachusetts? If it passes, the Senate's next stop is the Conference Com- mittee and then to the Governor. I believe Patrick is not that enthused, but will realize Massachusetts needs the revenue. The House of Representatives passed two full-pledged casi- nos and 750 slot machines in Massachusetts. No one knows at this time where or who will be running the full casinos. Maybe one site will be on the Suffolk Downs property that has acres of land ... Filling out the Cen- sus is important. The gov- ernment has to know how many people are living in each district. Redistricting can occur if a district hasn't illegal immigrants that will not fill out the Census form, but are living in our cities. This means there's a strong possibility Revere and East Boston can be redistricted. When Census officials start the count, they will be count- ing only the census forms that have been filled out. However, Census workers will be knocking on many doors that haven't been heard from, but no one knows what they intend to do with the people that are discovered here illegally. Airheads Obama and Pelosi want to give full immunity to illegals, even though they are not paying taxes, eat- ing up our resources and taxpayers are picking up the tab for them. Only in Americal ... Library clos- ings have isolated "Menino Machine" politicians in Bos- ton who disagree with the closing of the Orient Heights Branch Library, and area libraries that's on Menino's hit list. Newspapers are re- porting he's starting a war chest again. He intends to run again after this term. Give me a break! ... Eastie residents are excited for the new arrival in Jeffries Point. Mehak Restaurant is a new addition to East Boston's restaurant commu- nity. Mehak is a Pakistani/ Indian restaurant located at 329 Sumner Street in East Boston. Locals have been talking about it and giving it thumbs up! The "E" Lounge on McClellan Highway on the East Bos- ton and Revere line is now serving a variety of barbecue meats and other tasty staples. The "E" is a friendly bar where people meet and greet. The estab- lishment, a family-owned business offers entertain- ment on weekends. Drop in and join the fun any evening. Fridays and Satur- days are especially excit- ing for making new friends, and mixing with old ones ... till next time!

Residents from Prince- ton Street cleaned up the library property on Meridian Street while volunteers from The Eagle Hill Civic Associa- tion cleaned up around Eagle Hill and East Boston High School. The Jeffries Point neighborhood Associa- tion joined their neighbors to cleanup Brophy Park and the streets around Jeffries Point.
