The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani BALLOT QUESTIONS: YES, NO, YES, NO Don't worry about reading all the long ballot questions. The vote is easy. It is yes, no, yes, no. I think it is time to take a good long hard look at casinos as a revenue stream. We need to go back to scratch on the casino is- sue. As far as adding addi- tional drinks to the Bottle Bill, then watch those depos- its rise automatically. I say leave the status quo in place. No one 'wants our roads and bridges to crumble, but who wants automatic gas tax hikes every year without a vote up on Beacon Hill? l can't remember what QUESTION 4 is, but if Howls Carr is VOTING NO, I am too. Remember, yes, no, yes, no. UP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE Democrat U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen is calling her opponent Republican Scott Brown anti-choice. She stated, "He's being dis- ingenuous when he says he's pro-cholce." Yes, Mas- sachusetts for Life did en- dorse Scott Brown in 2012 against Elizabeth Warren in that year's U.S. Senate race, but only because Warren was so supportive of abortion as a constitutiorml right. Brown, up in New Hamp- shire made it clear he and Shaheen both support Roe vs. Wade as law of the land. I voted for Brown twice, in 2010 and agairi in 2012. I don't agree with everything he supports, but I do consider him an independent voice. He was when he served in the Senate and will be again when he returns there.

COAKLEY MUST. BE GETTING DESPERATE I recently saw Martha Coakley's TV ad talking about the issue of mental health care in Massachu- setts. After working in the field for 50 years, I like it when that subject is part of someone's public policy con- cerns. However, when she uses her brother in the com- mercial, talking about his illness and suicide, I think it looks like desperation: Don't throw your brother under the bus to make political points; it is the politics of the desperate. TONY'S CL/dd SHOP CELEBRATES 50 YEARS The owners of Tony's Clam Shop on Wollaston Beach in Quincy were honored by the Quincy City Council recently in recognition of the restau- rants 50 years of business in Quincy. Whenever I'm in Quincy, I usually stop by for a broiled seafood platter. TAste great and healthy tool News Briefs {Continued from Page 1) ISIS, it reflects another case of profound ignorance. By the Way about Boots Why are so many moon bats out there so opposed to boots on the-ground against ISIS? Is it they are con- cerned about our fighting men and women in harm's way or is it just another PO- litically correct statement? They don't seem 6pposed to boots on the ground in Liberia where U.S. troops are being sent to help fight Ebola. What happens when they start coming down with Ebola, will they say take the boots off the ground or what? Politics is Great, but People Screw it Up Most of our Founding Fa- thers had little faith in hu- man nature, which is why they put so many checks and balances into our govern- ment structure. Today, how- ever, too much power is flow- ing over to the presidency by members of Congress. Democrats in the U.S. Sen- ate led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have become lackeys for the Executive Branch. They sit in silence and watch as President Obama continues to use his pen and phone to rule by executive order. I am fed up watching our elected officials both. Demo- crat and Republican, liberal and conservative, do very little except getting elected and making money. Do any I DRIVERS o you want more than $1,000 a Week?] cel[ent Monthly Bonus Program/Benefits.

As far as I am concerned, they are all a bunch of payroll patriots. Self-interest seems the ruIe nowadays. : Obamacare Grows Worse After Mid-Terms How many low-information voters out. there know that Obamacare will change their lives after the mid-term No- vember 4 th elections? Many folks will be seeing new plans that will offer fewer benefits. Those not on "Medicaid for All," as I like to call it, will see higher premiums, higher deductibles and higher co- pays with fewer benefits.- It is obvious that Demo- crats wanted to wait until after the November elections before socking it to folks. Be forewarned, this is coming, don't be fooled. Think very carefully about who gets your votes next month. Also, Remember the Amnesty Issue Too Plans still seem on track for President Obama, by executive order, to legalize anywhere from 11-20 million illegals already inside the country. With our porous borders still wide open, more will surely follow. PRAYER TO ST. JUDE May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and pre- served throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, help of the hopeless, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day and by the 8th day your prayers will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised. My prayers have been answered. A.T.P.
