As I See It Mrs. Mu [  Congratulations Neffo Cappuccio, Y-+o:-"-- O o s e p hin e (Joey) Cuzzi, -: :  Gina Fiandaca, Frank Fredella, Richard (Dick) Gavegnano, Manny Lopes, Diane Modica, Robert Katz, Veronica Robles, Jo- seph Ruggiero, Sr., Chip Tuttle and Walter Yourawski who received the 2014 Pros- perity Awards given by the East Boston Chamber of Commerce. The. award is to honor and recognize East Boston&apos;s most influential and impacfful business and com- munity leaders ... Don't for- get this Saturday November 22. from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm St. Joseph-St. Lazarus Par- ish is holding a Holiday Ba- zaar at the DOn Orione Function Hall at 147 Gladstone Street. The Ba- zaar will feature holiday shopping crafters, vendors and a children's section with games, church bake table, and raffles with super prizes. Have your children take a picture with Santa Claus from 10:00 am - 12 noon and 1:00 pm - 4:00 pro. There will be an open kitchen with homemade food including pasta, sausages, meatballs, hamburgers and hot dogs. Get in the holiday spirit, have a good time and get some of your Christmas shopping done. This family event is well attended every year and kids love it. It's a fun, fun day for everyone ... The Election Day BLOWOUT sent people cheering. It was a message given to the Democratic Party and Barack Obama that the American people are not happy campers ... Heard Hal- loween night in Central Square was wall to wall kids trick/or treating. Family Dotlar on Bennington Street had lines out the door with kids waiting for their treats ... In local politics, oters re. elected State Rep. Carlo Basile back to the senate by a three to one percent vote over Celeste Myers. Heard hundreds of Basile support- ers flockedto Ecco Restau- rant to congratulate Carlo on his huge Victory. Basile also hosts a Thanksgiving din- ner at the Sacred Heart Par- ish for seniors and the less fortunate every year ... The controversy over Martha Coakley's failed campaign strategy is garbage talk. C0akley deserved to lose! Coakley appeared frailand lacked knowledge on impor- tant issues (gas tax for one). And, being a pal of Obama didn't help. She proved to be a sore loser the night of the election. To put it mildly, Martha cooked her own goose and will be eating" it for Thanksgiving ... It is pitiful that U.S. Senator Ed Markey won another six year term. Had Scott Brown stayed in Massachusetts and ran against Markey I believe he would have won! ... Ambu- lance chasers Rev. A1 Sharpton and Jesse Jackson aren't too happy over elec- tion results either! Once Obama leaves office, hope-, fully, the race card will be put to sleep ... It's not surpris- ing that Prez. Obama didn't lift a finger to help the U.S. Marine held captive in Mexico for seven months just for making a wrong turn into Mexico. The Marine, who had documented proof from the VA Hospital stating that he was suffering from PTSD after serving in Afghanistan, was left to rot! Our U.S. president choose to ignore the family's pleas for help, but didn't hesitate to come out against the kill- ings of Michael Brown of Ferguson Missouri, Trayvon Martin of Florida and an alleged incident involving a Cambridge professor, all of whom are black. Another demerit for Obama! ... Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will be eating crow rather than tur- key this Thanksgiving with a heaping dish of Republican changes! .,. Obama is com- ing off more arrogant than ever since the Republican victory. Why isn't Obama blaming his disgusting record for the Dems rejec? tion? These include: illegal investigations by the IRS. Benghazi. tack of border con- trol. unresolved Immigra- tion Reform. snubbing our allies Israel. and the mis- handling of Iraq and the Mfddle East. A record like that should .seal Obama's fate as America's worst President. America needs a leader "For the People," Not against the Peoplel ...
