PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY MAY 22, 2024) — Today, THE PLANET discusses a few odd and recent items.

Brain Drain–THE PLANET has obtained an exclusive look at the recent brain scan of Bitchfield city council president Voltron the Porkchop. Seems our Right Honorable Good Friend claims his vast collection of action figures have been giving him political advice. Below is the scan. It shows a greasy, fat-laden mass in the occipital lobe, with the cerebral cortex loaded with larded slop. The picture explains much. We wonder: Is it a brain scan or scam?

Community Pickpocket Act–The CPA’s gatekeepers just shelled out $808, 547, money that could have been used to tax relief. But no00OO. This is Bitchfield. Can’t blame community development queen Justine Dodds. She’s using the Neremburg defense. She was simply following orders. One gift, or is it “grift,” stands out: $175,000 to “connected” contractor Allegrone Construction for the Wright Building on NON. Allegrone has already received a huge tax break from the city. Talk about the double dip. The tax relief AND the CPA bucks. THE PLANET guesses the six-figure kiss provides an enormous return on mayoral campaign contributions.

Flagging It Down–Brainwashed Mt. Greylock cuddle high school sophomore Jack Uhas said he/she/it/they wanted more dialogue on his/her/their proposal “to wave his freak flag high,” quoting the great Jimi Hendrix. The lad/lass is president of the school’s Gender Sexuality Alliance. Must be something like the Latin Club. More dialogue? THE PLANET is glad to oblige. “Kid,” we say, “forget about your sexuality and focus more on your studies. Put your energy into reading, writing, and math. Those skills will come in far more handier than advertising that you don’t know the difference between a yin and a yang, to say nothing of a dink and a dang. LGBTQ+LMNOP folks are a T-I-N-Y minority in what you call “the wider community.” That community doesn’t care about your plumbing fixations and finds it insulting that your splinter cause should assault their peepers every time they venture out. The rainbow flag has run out of colors. Somehow, we trust you’ll get over it. U has a lot to learn, lad.”

4WD–Bitchfield mayor Maypo has given his council minions a $216,155,210 budget plan. The council, as you may have heard, is headed by Voltron the Porkchop. This tells you everything you need to know about budget “deliberations.” Maypo calls it “a responsible budget,” to which Voltron fetched the mayor’s “openly gay” pipe, slippers, Berkshire Eagle. 4Wd all the way, baby.

Mayor Maypo preparing for his appearance on the budget before the Bitchfield city council.

Maypo also decided to mock taxpayers by lamenting the “reductions” the city and schools will have to endure. The other 10 councilors have rubber stamped every request from the corner office. Dumpster Earl was in excellent form. We hear that Dumpster is still on the prowl for people who look like him. That must account for all the broken mirrors that have been turning up on curbside of late. The idiots on the city council once more are forcing taxpayers to play Russian Roulette. In the Bitchfield version of this popular pastime, the council loads the six-shooter with six rounds before the Kapanskis give the cylinder a spin.

Gun Play at Socohl–We find it interesting that Socolh Supt. Jumpin’ Joe Curtis warns his chitlins not to bring toy guns to school. Jumpin’ should rescind that policy and concentrate on actual guns. Our PSD spies tell of a couple recent incidents where students were caught with firearms and ammo on campus. At least two such incidents that our source says he/she knows about. Our Mercer spy said the Administration’s first response was to work feverishly to keep the public and parents from knowing about this “because of the upcoming budget talks.” if a few students get gunned down before the last day of school, so what? So what gives? THE PLANET would like to ask Curtis to verify this report, but he’s another who doesn’t respond to our queries.You know the drill.  When the phone doesn’t ring, we know its Jumping’ Joe not getting back to us.

….a $216,155,210 budget plan….in return for….a shit sandwich….is what you get for your hard-earned Kapanski Kash….in Pittsfield politics….along with Voltron Pete White the pork-chop….and his gang of thieves who vote to steal your money in broad daylight….that breaks down to an average of over $5,000 per Senior Citizen household per fiscal year….with the city’s golden oldies lamenting the failed legacies of the late-barstool, the level 5 schoolmarm aberration, the rolodex, the montello, the gated community taxer, and the current “90 day grace period” openly gay mayor who is named in a federal sex discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit….and they always increase city spending by a factor of 5 percent per fiscal year going back over 4 decades now….

Should just call the clowncil The Door Mats because all they do is lie and also get walked over all the time. Not one has answered why the city of Pittsfield has to have a budget of $220 million while other cities the same size in the Commonwealth are under $200 million for their budgets. So I ask what do the citizens of Pittsfield get for the extra $20 million? 45 gallon toter cans? Great question for Ricky Rumpus last night at the garbage summit a citizen asked what do you do on streets with no curbs like lower Appleton. Everyone parks on the street and there is no where to put these new toters….his response, duuuuuh I dunno I’m sure Casella will come up with a plan because they do this everywhere!! Yup that just showed everyone how intelligent our so called city leaders are, Good Luck Bitchfield and be careful out there or you might get the slap

Great question: Why is Pittsfield politics’ $220 million municipal operating budget tens of millions of dollars more than similar postindustrial cities?

Is it because the of the cooked books and slush funds, decades of political corruption, that everyone and their mother, grandmother, great-grandmother….is on disability, welfare, social services, etc., the middle-class of the bygone post-WW2 era has given way to the 21st Century’s huge underclass with their endless rows of trailer homes around the rust belt, including the nearly 26-year-old indebted and polluted PEDA debacle, that the career politicians are only in it for their lucrative public pay plus perks (for life), the greedy lobbyists such as Dan Bosley, Peter Larkin and Stan Rosenberg are cashing in on our tax dollars, and/or that Pittsfield politics’ other name is spelled R-E-T-R-I-B-U-T-I-O-N?

These Allegrone giveaways, especially the CPA one, are exhibits of why the budget is ginormous and growing leaps and bounds. The more they raise the taxes the more they can give away to special interest millionaires. This confirms what we all knew about Marchetti. He is a puppet put in place to distribute tax payer money to the deep state.

Why not use the CPA money for the goddamn parade instead of begging for it? It would be a much better use and taxpayers would not feel quite so insulted and abused. Many of us voted against this CPA charade on day one because we knew it was a set up to shuffle money to the bigwigs really running the city from behind the curtain.

Get out now. This is your life in Pittsfield. Funding grifters involuntarily.

Or fully funded the Arrowhead sewer project (which would still have been a bad use of the money). But they openly said they’d rather borrow it so they can be free to handout the CPA money, just like when Tyer openly said that using the ARPA money to reduce taxes or water fees wasn’t worth it because giving away huge amounts of taxpayer money to a few people has a bigger impact.

Or Miss Halls school with millions in their endowment fund. Berkshire Museum who sold rare artwork for 50 million and tax payers are still paying some of their bills. How much of the Colonial Theater expenses are quietly funded by the taxpayer?

This is why the Marchetti and White types shudder whenever they hear the words forensic audit. The more I look at the waste in Pittsfield government the more I think a true budgeting mayor could shave twenty million off the top in a heartbeat.

Marchetti is giving it up the ass to the taxpayers. And smirking as he does it. White has no clue what his job is and is only on site for a party term. He thinks it is all a game.

Bitchfield is just copying the democRAT model set in place by Hussein Obama using a “puppet” as a front man.

Mayor Maypo is just a continuation of the Barry “Flat” Tyer administration and the powers that ran her tenure as “mayor,”……now batting, Bitchfield’s most feared vigilante, Dirty Barry Clairmont.

You’ve heard Mayo Maypo and/or Linda “Flat” Tyer speak publicly.

Do you honestly think either of them have the fortitude or mental aptitude to think critically and solve complex issues that concern Bitchfield citizens?

No, me either.

Critical thinking has nothing to do with it. Marchetti knows exactly what he is doing and why he was given so much help getting that job. His sidekick may or may not know but could care less. By design in fact, puppets cannot think critically. They say and do as their handlers dictate. Tyer has been trying to learn how to walk on her own now for five months now.

Seems those smart people (formerly) of MA don’t share your sentiment and hurt feelings, that Donald Trump is a bad guy because he used “guy talk” in the past.

Maybe it’s time to do some self-inflection JM.

This what a vote for Hussein Obama/China Joe Xiden will get you:

Kicking Vets out in favor of illegal aliens, $4+ gallon of gas, war in Ukraine, war in Middle East, on the verge of WWIII, sky high inflation, unaffordable home loans, unaffordable auto loans, groceries up over 20% since 2020, illegal aliens flood the border, fentanyl deaths, record low recruitment for our armed forces, men thinking their women in cabinet positions within the Xiden administration, China spy ballon floating over the US gathering intel, barges crashing into bridges at unheard of rates in recent months, $700 checks to the citizens in Maui who lost everything, over $80,000,000 to Ukraine. Just to name a few.

If guy talk really bothers you this much, maybe it’s time to grow up. You’re almost 50 years old according to you. A saying like that usually only bothers young girls or gay women. Not a 50-year-old man.

I’d probably be one of the first one’s kicked off the list Dan.

Sports locker rooms, being a NORMAL teenage boy talking to friends about girls, basic training, military dorms, etc.

The only “threat to democracy” Trump poses is a one-party, democRAT ruled system. Kinda like Massachusetts has and JM constantly blogs and complains about.

Like I said, time to WAKE UP and as Phil Leotardo said to Vito’s son Vito Jr, when he dressed like a “PR **ore, Be a man.”

The Democrats keep promises of free housing, food, cell phones etc. and they get the vote, it’s that simple. Here in Pittsfield and other areas there is some who have not had jobs in generations. It leaves the working taxpayers to foot the endless budgets.

Ten million immigrants but somehow their is 8.5 million job openings in America. Who is buying their food, lodging, medical and education? If their is a legitimate explanation I would love to hear it.
Or do we need to let another 8.5 million immigrants in to fill these jobs that apparently no one already here wants.
I read that Gaza is going to have a huge housing crisis and perhaps we can help since our bombs and rockets destroyed almost every building in the country.

You never mention 10/7, when Hamas invaded Israel and tortured, raped, and killed, innocent women and children, and then broadcast all of this on their social media outlets.

This is hard to believe. Six new pickleball courts in Springside Park. Taking away play space for children so old folks can lob a ball back and forth is ridiculous. Clapp, Deming, Common parks have lost play space for children. The Common is destroyed. Now Springside Park is going to lose play space for children for the most ridiculous reason of all. Elderly adults can get better exercise by taking a walk. It is also a lot less expensive for Pittsfield taxpayers.

Every town and city around Bitchfield have all their crosswalks nicely painted and they are very visible to drivers. With an over two hundred million budget and growing, why has Bitchfield not painted crosswalks in years? The previous Clownsil was argueing over what color they should be. Never thought I would see it, but this new Clownsil is ten times worse than the last! What is the problem Mayor Maypo and your puppet Richardo, why no painting of crosswalks, can’t afford it?

Update on the saga of the “narrowed California Avenue”. They have yet to repair all the yards promised in the letter sent to residents’ last fall. They told us they were using this “miracle hydroseed fast growing grass seed”. Suppose to start “sprouting” in 5 days. Well, it’s been almost three weeks since yards were sprayed, no grass so far! The City has showed up with a water truck twice and somewhat “tinkled” on little parts of our yards. It is going on 7 months now since the City has ruined this street to “save money”. When Maypo was campaigning, he promised it would be fixed. Keep your campaign promise!

I agree about the painted crosswalks. The priorities in Pittsfield are upside down which kind of exposes the true agenda of the Marchetti/White debacle. Their main focus is obviously on special interests and not the true taxpaying public.

Funny how a pedestrian gets killed and the city wants to redesign the whole roadway costing millions of dollars. But painting crosswalks in a timely manner, which is apparently concerning in other towns, is down the list in Pittsfield, and will be addressed after all the Tiffs and CPA monies are allotted. Handouts to the parasitic wheelers and dealers who need to be kept happy are the Petes priority.

Tyler street has thousands of dollars of new plants adorning its full length. But even though it may be the most pedestrian crossed road in the city, the crosswalks are woefully faded and neglected.

Take from that what you will.

Was listening to a radio program this morn talking about the economy. Guy was saying how contractors all over the country are shutting down building projects due to high materials costs and interest rates. It actually used one example of apartment buildings.

But in Pittsfield everything is going ahead full steam. We ain’t afraid of no stinking high building materials costs or interest rates cuz we gots bottomless taxpayers to tap into. Schools, stadiums and apartment buildings…we got it all going on man. Come on down to Pittsfield where money grows on trees.

And then those who build or rehab the “Affordable Housing’s units with all these taxpayers funded tax breaks and other monies they received get to charge so called market rate rents which aren’t market rates at all for this area. Leadership allows this and to justify the market rates they throw in a few requirements that a few units truly be what the going rates should be for the area.

When Joe Biden visited Boston, Massachusetts, it was for the campaign cash, NOT to visit the underclass and illegal immigrant crises that are costing state taxpayers somewhere around $1 billion per fiscal year. Please read this op-ed about the failed leadership from the Biden White House to the misguided Maura Healey corner office in Beacon Hill’s corrupt Statehouse.

Someone wrote to me:

“When Joe Biden visited Boston, Massachusetts, it was for the campaign cash, NOT to visit the underclass”

Only serfs beckon their supreme leader for a visit (to see their plight.) Those who know what they are about don’t see him.

Are you a serf?

Jon Melle’s reply:

I am an American Citizen Activist in politics. I am similar to a serf in that I am a Have Not (who is educated about public policy).

My point here is that Massachusetts state taxpayers are paying somewhere around $1 billion per fiscal year to provide additional social services to the state’s large underclass and illegal immigrant populations. Joe Biden’s policies are costing state governments, such as Massachusetts, a lot of state tax dollars.

Joe Biden avoided the plight of all of the poor people when he visited Southern New Hampshire and Massachusetts this past Wednesday (05/21/2024) afternoon and evening, but he made sure to raise a lot of money for his presidential reelection campaign. Please note that Joe Biden has raised more campaign cash than any other politician in U.S. history.

State governments spend somewhere around 50 percent of their budgets on public health, social services, welfare programs, and the like. As it stands now, 50 percent is a very high ratio. The underclass is growing larger, the middle-class is shrinking in numbers since the mid-1970’s (around 50 years now), the wealthy elites are only about enriching themselves, while the rest of us have to pay for their financial shell games.

How is any of this sustainable over the long-term? What will happen when Massachusetts spends 60, then 70, then 80….percent on public health?

Joe Biden cashing in at campaign fundraisers in Boston is a perfect illustration of everything I just wrote about. However, what does Joe Biden care – as he is an 81.5-year-old man whose future days are numbered in years instead of decades.
