Pittsfield (Mass.) Mayor Peter Marchetti’s fiscal year 2025 $216 municipal operating budget goes into effect today: Monday, July 01st, 2024.

The Massachusetts State Budget for fiscal year 2025 is late for the 14th straight year today.

The Massachusetts State Legislature’s formal session goes through July 31st, 2024, and then the 200 career politicians in Boston will go on their 5-months-long taxpayer-funded vacation.

Critics say that the Massachusetts State Legislature’s do-nothing public record means that they have been on a taxpayer-funded vacation all year long.

That’s not entirely true JM.

The democRAT “leaders” of MA made sure to take good care of the illegal aliens.

Approximately halfway down the article, it talks about Maura Healey setting up $10,000,000 for “English learning and job training.”

I agree with you. Veterans should have priority over illegal immigrants. It is a good thing that the glorified double dipper Smitty is not running for reelection. Tricia Farley-Bouvier represents illegal immigrants. John Barrett III will probably die in elected office.

Hello Gov. Maura Healey,

Happy Independence Day. I attended the Town of Amherst, NH’s annual 4th of July (2024) parade this morning. I shook hands with NH candidate for Governor Joyce Craig during the aforementioned parade. I told her that she has my vote. She said thank you. I believe that you and Joyce Craig would (hopefully will) make a great team as the Governor of the GREAT Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the GREAT State of New Hampshire.

Best wishes,

Jon Melle

P.S. When Kelly Ayotte walked by during the parade, nobody was enthusiastic about her. When the children passed out her campaign stickers, nobody took one. She is unpopular.

I have no skin in this fight, as I do not live in NH. After looking over the two campaigns, I can see why JM is a staunch supporter of Joyce Craig.

Craig is a Ukraine and Illegal Aliens first candidate.

Kelly Ayotte in her campaign, pledges not to “turn NH into MA,” you can see in the link below.

For that reason, I sent her campaign a $25 donation.

Issues – Kelly for New Hampshire (kellyfornh.com)

JM if you love democRATS so much, why don’t you move back to the one-party state (MA)?

You know, the one-party state you jump on here and write long screeds and complain about.

The Biden campaign sent out an email to their supporters telling them how to defend the president’s rough debate performance. Biden’s family has no intention of encouraging him to stop his campaign. It’s unbelievable that they would approve of another term in his condition just for political reasons and/or money. The only thing that makes sense is they are setting it up to turn it over to Kamala Harris if Biden wins, another disaster for the country.

I agree. The whole Biden family is dysfunctional and they have no problem putting Joe in one embarrassing situation after another, but it really reflects badly on them. Jill and Hunter want to push Joe into running when he should be on a beach enjoying his life, but that lifestyle would be too dull for Jill and Hunter and the rest of the family. Jill wearing a 5,000 dollar designer outfit on the cover of Vogue after dragging her very sick husband off the stage after the debate and addressing him like a child, that says it all about their priorities. White House aides, who will no doubt be fired for telling the truth, are reporting that Biden only functions between 10am and 4pm. After 4pm, he begins to fade. Who is running the country the rest of the time? Jill? Hunter?

Enjoy your historical GE shutdown vacation, the poor Kapanski’s of today will never get to enjoy the summer shutdowns of yesteryear when companies would shutdown to fix, repair and clean the factories so they would operate smoothly the for the next 50 weeks. I’m wondering if the city could do the opposite, shut down 50 weeks and only operate for 2,,,I wonder if it would save the Kapanski’s any tax dollars? Who am I kidding the weasels at city hall and the school department are always thinking of ways to steal the Kapanski’s cash even during shutdown/vacation!
Unfortunately they say we get the government we vote for and people tend to vote for who is most like them so I guess bitchfield is made up of a bunch of sniveling weasels always looking to steal another person’s hard earned cash.
Well enjoy your weeks of R&R, hopefully see you on the other side

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had an honest media that questioned our elected “leaders,” about their favorable position towards illegal aliens and the crimes committed by them.

Do you think Tricia Farley-Country Buffet (D-illegal aliens) would still feel that illegal aliens should get driver’s licenses to “ease their fear of going to the Dr’s office and getting stopped by the police,” if TFCB had to place the call to Jocelyn Nungaray’s parents and explain to them why she violated the oath she swore to uphold, “to defend the Constitution of the US against all enemies, foreign, and domestic…”

For those unaware, Jocelyn Nungaray, was the 12-year-old Houston, TX, child, that two illegal aliens kidnapped, sexually assaulted, and strangled to death, recently. Luckily, Texas will seek the death penalty to exterminate those animals.

C’mon, Tricia, you’re the big education advocate. Call the Nungaray family and talk to them about your children who grew up to be adults. Their daughter, Jocelyn, will NEVER have that opportunity. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you.

Very scary to hear that people think Kamala is the future of the Democrat party. She is totally incompetent. She will be the puppet of the unelected Washington swamp and do their bidding and Americans will pay the price. All Americans should vote for anyone other than a Democrat after hearing that giggling Kamala is being taken very seriously. They are preparing the country for Biden to hand it over to Kamala if he wins the presidency because no way Joe can carry on as president for 4 more years. The Democrat party is really playing mind games with Americans.

On this July 4th, I wanted to point out that Tricia Farley-Country Buffet (D-illegal aliens) has been working hard behind the scenes to try and get legislation passed. Will it help her Berkshire County (Bitchfield) constituents you ask?

Funny you would even think that, unless of course you were an illegal alien.

TFCB is a co-sponsor of MA House Bill #4750. What does HB4750 deal with? Restraining/Protection Orders. These in MA are known in the legal world as a 209A.

So, what did TFCB and her comrades do with this bill?

*In this bill, if you go down to lines 26-27, they will remove the words “man and a woman” and replaces them with the word, “persons.”

* Go further down to lines102-103, they replace the word “mother” with “person who gave birth.”

*Lines 105-106, it strikes out the word “FATHER” with “OTHER PARENT.”

*Throughout the bill, “mother” is replaced with “person who gave birth.”

With everything going on in the world and in MA, are these really the issues that need attention?

https://malegislature.gov/Search?SearchTerms=hb4750

**I find it funny the democRAT party cannot define what a “man” or a “woman,” but when it comes to killing babies (abortion), they are clear as crystal on the sexes. “My body, my choice.” sound familiar.

Donald Trump is challenging Joe Biden to another debate with no moderators so they can just discuss their individual agendas. Trump wants Joe to explain why he supports open borders and why he hasn’t attempted to stop the Ukraine war by pushing for a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine. It’s obvious that Joe Biden and his globalists want this war. Why doesn’t Joe do more to stop inflation? Why does Joe support men in women’s sports? The list goes on and on, but Joe will never do this because it’s too unstructured and he needs all the structure he can get to try to stay lucid.

Doubt Biden wants anything to do with a debate based on strictly policies alone. He and his handlers need a debate platform that allows for anything but the usual talking spew about Hitler, Felon, abortions, threat to democracy, dictatorship and so on. Biden can’t even get that spew out with correctly stringing a few sentences out together or freezing up.

But, but, but “trust the science” Dan and not what you see with your own eyes.

The best answer I saw was Xiden “had a cold,” but that didn’t stop him from pandering to the black community at a Waffle House in Atlanta after the debate. I guess he wasn’t that sick, or he didn’t care if he got others sick. He just needed that pandering photo-op.

Just a few months prior to the debate, several neurologists were telling us it’s “normal” for a person Xiden’s age to be forgetful.

Trust the science: wear face diapers, stand 6-feet apart, stay indoors and out of the sun, and the best one, “taking the COVID shot will prevent you from getting COVID,” etc.

As Biden’s memory issues draw attention, neurologists weigh in (nbcnews.com)

**Keep in mind, Hussein Obama in 2012, signed HR 4310, which allowed propaganda to be used on US citizens by its own government. He essentially repealed the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which BANNED the use of DOMESTIC PROPAGANDA.

But Trump is going to be the “Dictator.”

After watching the parade, I would like to see where the $80,000 dollars is spent. Has there ever been an audit done of the books? It seems like it’s getting more expensive each year, but the quality is going down, unfortunately just like the city. It’s basically just people walking down the street holding banners. Maybe the city official’s new baseball shirts cost a lot or is overtime pay for police officers and fire department.

Also, with the HUGE school department budget you mean to tell taxpayers that they can’t afford to get band uniforms for the Pittsfield High band. Back in my day the PHS Band, Cheerleaders and Cadettes were all decked out in purple and white and represented the city with class. We were proud. Guess those days are long gone.

My biggest laugh was when Berkshire Health Systems float ended the parade, with the subject colorectal health. So ironical because basically with the increase in taxes and water bills long with the lack of traffic control, and increase in crime and homelessness, the city is sticking it up our butts.

How about if it went to the Bousquet area where friendly exchanges seem to occur often enough? So far the city has continued to shat upon the venture while at the same time showering money on other children type entertainment. How weird is that huh?

There is a commentary in the Berkshire Eagle entitled “Your Religious Values are Not America’s Values”. Pamela Paul says that no wonder Americans are turning from religion, especially Christianity, when Republicans want to make students aware of the 10 commandments and the Bible in the schools. This is offensive to so many people including atheists, Muslims, and others who don’t believe in the Bible. Ms. Paul never mentions all that is currently being taught in schools that a majority of Americans find offensive like trying to convince young children they need surgeries and hormones because they are trapped in the wrong sexual identity and teaching students to be activists for the far left Democrat agenda. None of that is offensive to Americans according to the far left and, if it is, they don’t care. Moral values that religion would provide is a direct threat to what is being taught in our schools and this is the real reason Ms. Paul and others on the left want to keep these teachings away from students.

Such an ass? Pat is informed and her post is exactly what is happening. I know from first hand experience with my nephew that this crap is being and has been pushed on them. There is plenty of information out there on this happening.

People like to hide their heads in the sand when it comes to what is really going on. Have they forgotten about the sexually explicit book that a Great Barrington teacher was making available to students? About parents coming forward to try to take back the schools from these radical teachers and school administrators who insist they know what is best for the kids? It has been a huge fight because schools have been trying to weaken parental authority and the fight is still going on in the schools.

Last year the Tyler street total renovation, upgrade, modernization project was completed with much fanfare and expense. How many millions is not clear but it was a whole big bunch.

Today however, less than one year later, the much touted, bike lanes for safety, are badly faded and almost completely unmarked in many stretches. As are the CROSSWALKS where more jaywalking takes place than North street. It is the middle of summer and school is out and tourism is under way but clearly marked crosswalks and bike lanes on Tyler street are apparently low on the list of the Petes priorities. One can almost forgive the mayor because he is very busy attending photo ops and parties, but the council president should be able to find the time, five minutes perhaps, to speak to Morales about this serious safety for children issue.

Who is the ward councilor? Why are the parents not in an uproar? Did we just spend millions to redo a main thoroughfare and make it even more dangerous than it was?

To answer your last question, yes that is what the city is constantly doing. There is absolutely no thought process behind any of their decisions. Look at all the streets they have decided to “narrow” in neighborhoods where they never even made one damn attempt to study traffic or speak to taxpayers on the street about traffic flow both vehicle and pedestrian. Meanwhile they are having to keep trying to correct the errors they have made. How much money did you save Ricardo and Peter with your brilliant idea? As far as sidewalks not being painted. Our city has the largest budget and steadily growing, yet all towns and cities around us can afford to paint their crosswalks, but then again, Bitchfield can’t even agree on what color to paint them, evidently too difficult of a decision by the CC! Also, the public works department does not seem to finish any job they start, they would rather decorate the city with orange cones and barrels. We are a neglected city, just drive around and dodge all the potholes still waiting to be filled.

Instead of addressing your obvious concerns, Mayor Pete has them Street Sweeping sandless roads. Hopefully they can stop the madness, someday.

Might I add that First street is in a similar box of neglected safety issues. Super highly jaywalked street with poorly defined crosswalks and bike lanes. Even the one from the parking lot to the Multi-million dollar common stage and Farmers Market is almost invisible.

However and day of the week you will find parks dept employees all over the parks making them pretty. Flowers being planted and attended to all over the city. But if you don’t have children perhaps it does not rise to the level of high priority.

How sad is that in Pittsfield, Ma?

This is an honest question for Snark, JM, TSC, Mr. Worldwide, and Azzhatter.

It’s also an opportunity to prove to us that a Picklefield Public Scohol Edjubacation is worth almost $80,000,000 a year out of the Bitchfield Budget.

**Now, pay attention to the directions and then the question I’ll ask with a link to back up my question.**

Without mentioning Donald Trump, 1/6, or suffering from bouts of TDS accompanied by uncontrollable explosive diarrhea, explain to myself and the Planet, why democRATS want illegal aliens to vote?

We already know why. We’re just curious to get your spin or grasp of it all.

JM, maybe instead of fawning over Joyce Craig, you could ask her for her position on this and why she supports illegal aliens over Veterans.

I know as a veteran; I would appreciate it. I certainly wouldn’t welcome you in my VA or VFW with your stance of illegal aliens over Vets. Your vote and posts prove my point.

Markus, you continue to be an idiot.

Your question ‘why do democrats want illegal aliens to vote?’ has a simple answer.

They don’t.

It looks like we have come to a couple of finalities with former mayor Linda “Flat” Tyer.

According to this story below, she is now known as Linda Clairmont, and not Linda Tyer. It appears under the advice of Bitchfield’s finest vigilante, Dirty Barry Clairmont, Linda has finally abandoned the Tyer.

It also ends the one in a million chance JM thought he had of winning Linda “Flat” Tyer over with his endless screeds, fawning over Linda and “her fight for the little guy.” Those “fights” and “the little guy” were never discussed or defined, but facts by damned when it comes to puppy love. Sadly, it has come to an end.

First, it was Tricia Farley-Country Buffet (D-illegal aliens) who blocked your endless emails. Calling her “the lovely” didn’t help your cause, but I digress. Soon after, former disgraced DA Andrea “Wrong Way” Harrington followed suit. To complete the trifecta, Flat Tyer not only blocked your emails, but she also went an extra step and changed her last name.

In honor of JM’s failed attempts at political love, toast your favorite beverage the next time you enjoy it.

Back to reality, how on God’s green earth did Flat Tyer win any legitimate award?

I feel bad for Linda & Barry Clairmont because Luciforo lives 0.3 miles from them in Pittsfield’s elitist Gated Community west of Berkshire Community College. I would NOT want Pittsfield’s Pot King living near me, but I don’t have such problems because I am a disabled Veteran so I am not worth millions of dollars like they are.

Keyword: Legitimate award.

Thought I just read about ten articles on how Pittsfield had a “housing crisis” and was short about a thousand units and had actually gotten much worse in the last 8 years that Tyer was mayor.

Key word: Legitimate

So Councilor Amuso made a motion to continue a finding at Meth Bar after a stabbing. How convenient as it allows the bar to do business through the 4th of July. So, the information to the Meth lawyer about observed patrons being drunk came late without certain details, and was thought by the Meths attorney it was for a stabbing that occurred near the facility that involved a couple of Meth patrons who according to the stabbing victim himself over served. That’s all the board needed,that victim admitting he was over served. What is a City Councilor doing on this board anyway?

Latest news from City Hall, $16.8 million owed the city in back taxes! City Administration keeps raising the budget which raises the taxes of those that do pay their taxes. This is downright wrong. Why has this been allowed to happen? Taxpayers deserve a better excuse than what was written in the Beagle. Someone needs to be fired for not doing their jobs along with those higher ups that let it happen.
