POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 Page 5 Mrs. Murphy... As I See It Something is ... Hello out there. People are a half years to suffer fishy[ Despite asking, "Where are the the embarrassments of the costing mil- renovations promised at the Obama administration and o A Frank De Pasc uale Venture o ! [    lions to clean up the Mon- santo Chemical contami- nated land to be used to build the Wynn Resort Casinos in Everett, Steve Wynn re- ceived the license. It didn't matter that thousands of people will be out of work at Suffolk Downs, the Massa- chusetts Gaming Commis- sion still awarded Wynn Resort Casinos the license. Despite allegations made into Wynn's reputation and alleged ties to the wrong people, Wynn Resort Casi- nos got the nod! ... The Mas- sachusetts Gaming Com- mission continued delibera- tions on the plans for two casinos on September 11 th and just as recent as last week awarded the license to Steve Wynn Resort Casinos for the Everett location, by- passing Suffolk Downs. As a result, Suffolk Downs is now forced to close. There will be no more live racing and a large number of workers will be unemployed. Heard among those Massachusetts Commissioners voting for a Wynn Resort Casino were Gov. Deval Patrick appoin- tees. Rumors are angry and disappointed Suffolk Downs employees will vote YES to the question on the Novem- ber 4 th ballot pertaining to gaming legislation. If you want a casino in Massachu- setts, VOTE NO. Do you want to repeal the gaming legis- lation? The answer is YES. Central Square Park?" Since the Menino administration, there's been strong talk of funds put aside to redo the park. But to-date no such work has begun ... The speech President Barack "Clueless" Obama made re- cently left people scratching their heads. He said, "We're continuing air strikes in Iraq and Syria and providing training to the Iraqi mili- tary." I do not intend to put any boots on the ground." Hello, what planet is Barack "Clueless" Obama living on??? Either we fight them in their countries or soon we'll be forced to fight in ours! Most Americans do not want war, but this is of different circumstances. These sub-humans under- stand nothing. In other speeches 0bama said "The United States will degrade and destroy the enemy." Never said how! The Presi- dent begins his speeches like a lion and ends them like a little lamb. Barack is a dupe of former President Jimmy Carter. (no sub- stance)! Meanwhile, the ter- rorists are having a chuckle or two by his ignorance in foreign affairs. Apparently the President is trying to resolve this peacefully, he doesn't quite get it. He's dealing with blood thirsty animals that are willing to die for their cause. We need to brace ourselves. Ameri- cans have another two and listen to his non-sensible rhetoric? ... Bennington Street reeks of garbage every trash pickup day. The city needs to send out letters to all the residents that live and do business on that main street informing them to either pack their trash right or risk a fine! ... The home- less man that walks nearly in the middle of the streets pushing a shopping cart piled high with his personal items will eventually get hit by a car unless he starts walk- ing on the sidewalks! Law enforcement needs to warn him if they spot him! ... Cyclists will now have an option to purchase electric bikes. A new shop opened in South Boston, the first of its kind to sell electric and fold- able bikes. The question is, considering the speedi- ness of electric bikes, one wonders whether cars and pedestrians will be bothered by battery-powered cyclists zooming by them at a faster rate of speed than a pedaled bike .... I said I would run this blurb every week .... Heard crime in the Maver- ick Square area is picking up. Thieves are ripping jewelry off people walking. A word to the wise, don't wear expensive heavy jew= elry around your neck mak- ing it easy for scumbags to rip it off and that goes for other areas of East Boston, not just the Maverick area. ...
