EXPOSED: FACEBOOK A TOOL FOR REVENGE

Nowadays, almost everyone is on Facebook, including me.  Or, at least I was.

Face Book has a policy requiring that people register using the name they use in "real life".  Their policy states:  "Facebook is a community where people use their authentic identities. We require people to provide the name they use in real life; that way, you always know who you're connecting with. This helps keep our community safe."

Most people do use their "real" name, but nobody takes the policy too seriously; we all know plenty of people who use a pseudonym, including "Palin Smith".  (Also a victim of Facebook revenge.)

Earlier this year, I started using the nickname, "Shanty Irish" in order to give myself a little anonymity and privacy.  "Shanty" was my grandfather's nickname, and I was called Shanty after him, from the day I was born.  "Irish", well, I'm an Irishman.

"Shanty Irish" is a derogatory term used to describe the poor, ignorant Irish immigrants who lived in makeshift homes, called shanties.  A shanty amounts to a shack, like we see people in third world countries living in.

Shanty Irish is a term that I am rather proud of, in spite of its derogatory origin.  To me, it represents the fighting Irish spirit.  My Irish ancestors fled poverty and starvation in Ireland, wrought upon them by the tyranny of the British Empire.  They came to America with literally nothing but the clothes on their backs, the desire for freedom and opportunity denied them in their homeland and a will to succeed.

When they arrived on these shores, they were greeted with contempt and disdain.  They were discriminated against at every turn, yet they persevered.  They were denied housing and employment; "No Irish Need Apply".  So, they took jobs nobody else wanted; the most dangerous and demeaning jobs; firemen, police officers, coal miners; chamber maid and servants.

The Irish were treated worse than blacks.  The American Negros hated the Irish, too and were the first to call them "white niggers".  Being Catholic only added to the insult.  Yet over time, the Irish assimilated and spread throughout America, taking their work ethic, nobility and pride with them.  In many cases, they rose to great power and wealth, one eventually becoming President of the United States.

Thanksgiving Day, I came home from dinner to find my Facebook account suspended.  It was suspended because, "it seems you aren't using your real life name".  Facebook demanded that I provide documentation of my identity.  After briefly giving them some grief over it, I finally capitulated and provided them with my government issued identification, with my photo.  Yet to date, they have not restored my account.

The "real name" policy is not enforced unless someone reports its.  Someone, evidently, reported me.  There is only one reason to do such a thing, at least in this case, and that is to get back at someone.  During the last election cycle, I stepped on a few toes.  Politics is a dirty business and there are those who are petty enough to take cheap shots at those with whom the disagree.  The desire to hurt someone, regardless of the hurt it causes to innocent parties not otherwise involved, overrides any sense of ethics or morality.

And Facebook is complicit in meeting out revenge.  They refuse to reinstate my account, even though they have the documentation they asked for.  They refuse even to respond to my correspondence via my "support dashboard".  What could possibly be the motivation for this; I simply do not understand.

Could it be that Facebook really does discriminate against Conservatives?  I created and manage several Conservative and Tea Party groups, a family group and a group for people who grew up in my hometown.  I also belong to a variety of other groups, including two that keep me in touch with the people I served in the Air Force with.  Facebook must be aware of this, since they have "reviewed" my account.

Were it not for the fact that the hundreds of people belonging to my groups would be effected and that we have become dependent upon Facebook as a means of keeping in touch with friends and family around the country and around the world, I might just let this go and drop out, altogether.

But, no; what they are doing is an injustice.  If they can do this to me, they can, and certainly do, do this to others.  To quit would go against my Irish nature not to back down from a fight and an insult to my ancestors.

Please consider exposing the injustice and discrimination against Conservatives by sharing this on your Facebook page, Google+ page, or elsewhere.  Using #Facebook, +facebook.com, #ShantyIrish, and +ShantyIrish will help get the attention of Facebook and others.


Signed,

William Boylan, AKA Shanty Irish, AKA BillBoy Baggins

New options this year regarding Middletown Thanksgiving Project

Since 2010,  various groups & businesses,from around the city have come together for the Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project to purchase and assemble baskets of food for people who cannot otherwise afford to prepare a Thanksgiving feast. In  2013 MCTP provided 900 baskets to community members. Baskets are distributed by St. Vincent DePaul at the Salvation Army on Main Street. The bulk of basket's are assembled at Fellowship Church which last year put together over 1,200 lbs of food for donation. Pies can be dropped off until Wednesday for distribution. New this year is the option of assembling a basket for single people in need- rather than just families. Often times, in need individuals have no where to go on the holiday and spend it alone. Individual sized baskets will include turkey breasts rather than whole 15 lb turkeys.


Registration has closed for those in need of a basket this year. Baskets can be picked up Tuesday, Nov. 25 between noon and 3 p.m. Families of two or more will pick up baskets at Fellowship Church, 1002 Saybrook Road. Individuals will pick up baskets at Amazing Grace Food Pantry.


Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project includes the City of Middletown, Cross Street AME Zion Church, Fellowship Church, Heritage Commons, Liberty Bank, Liberty Bank Foundation, Middlesex County Community Foundation, Middlesex Hospital Volunteer Services, Middlesex United Way, Middletown Kiwanis Club, Middletown Police Department, Middletown Public Schools, Middletown Rotary Club, St. Luke's Community Services, St. Vincent De Paul Middletown/Amazing Grace Food Pantry, The Salvation Army, Wadsworth Glen Health Care Center, and Wesleyan University as well as countless others.

There is still time to help! Pies can be dropped off at Fellowship Church on Saybrook Road. If you wish to contribute, checks can be made out to 
"Rotary-MCTP" and sent to MCTP, c/o Fellowship Church, 1002 Saybrook Rd., Middletown, CT 06457. For more information about volunteering or contributing a donation, please Contact Lara SantaMaria at Fellowship Church at 860-346-1181 or MCTP2013@yahoo.com.

Suzio concedes race, final margin 214 votes


Republican Len Suzio, running for the 13th District state rep seat  which includes parts of Cheshire, Middletown, Middlefield, & Meriden conceded to Democrat incumbent Sen. Dante Bartolomeoon Friday Nov. 21, 2014. According to an article in the New Haven Register, Suzio will decline asking for a judge to re count votes.
Suzio lost the election to Bartolomeo by   614 votes, however, the town of Cheshire amended its official count several times and the final margin was 214 votes. WTF At the Insider, we scratch our heads at home a margin could be so misreported to begin with?!
Suzio in Middletown
Suzio told the Registrar :“During the 2000 presidential election, Democrats rallied under the mantra ‘every vote counts’ and an intensive audit process was conducted to confirm the vote count,” Suzio said in a statement released Friday.”I do not intend to put the voters through such a prolonged experience that could potentially leave the results in doubt for a considerable amount of time.”"
Suzio encourages reforms to Connecticut's election process. Suzio will remain at his post as the State's Victims Advocate. Suzio has been an advocate of repealing the state's absorbitant gas tax, for the ending of early release of violent criminals, as well as education and fiscal accountability. If he had been elected, he vowed to not support any tax increases.We wish Len Suzio the best and hope he stays involved in local politics; a true asset to Middletown and Connecticut.

And Justice for All: What the Elections Said by John Milardo

Download in the original format here
Below is a essay by John Milardo.

On November 4, 2014 mid-term elections were held in the United States. Results varied,
for both Democrats and Republicans across the nation. I, like many Americans follow
politics, but don’t study it so intensely that it becomes a career or job. In the end, we hope
those elected will do their best for us.

On election night and a couple of days after, the career politicians around the nation made
me laugh! First, I heard both Senator Mitch McConnell and President Barak Obama state
how “they heard the voters loud and clear!” and will change the way business is being
done in Washington. Why did it take a loss to prove that voters wanted change and were
not satisfied with elected officials!

First of all, business has not been getting done for the people in Washington or in many
States. Politicians who were re-elected believe their election was a vote of confidence
from the voters. They can say and read what they want into the election, but confidence in
our elected officials was not the outcome.

What mandate did the Party’s hear? While in office, elected officials do not listen or have
contact with their “constituents” to find out what the real issues are and what direction we
want them to head in. We get lip service while they concentrate on their own agendas and
political Party bullshit, taking care of lobbyists to ensure they have plenty of money for
their campaigns to buy another term. Neither Party is doing the peoples work - they are
tied down with insider politics.

What politicians should be concerned with most nationwide is why two-thirds of the
voting public didn’t show up to cast their vote? People feel it’s a giant waste of time - all
politicians are the same. Others may feel the candidates were not worth the bother?
People in economic distress can’t get out of the hole they’re in and have just plain given
up. The middle class, who literally pay the freight for everything in our country, are
squashed at both ends no matter what! Who are the winners? The winners are big
business and those taking lobbyist money to do their dirty work.
We had billions of dollars spent on elections this year. Our political system is for sale to
the highest bidder. It has become monetarily rewarding for politicians to keep on getting
elected to office. It isn’t about civic duty! They (politicians) collude with business and
the rich to take care of each other. The average citizen doesn’t matter; politicians have the
“what can YOU do for ME attitude”. The masses are get a feel good vote here and there
and thrown to the curbside.

One of the most disconcerting things is the checks and balances a “free press” once
ensured. The Press doesn’t report news any more it fabricates it. News companies tell you
what is important. They filter and twist the political activity of the Party their CEO is a
member of, and feed it to us spoonful by spoonful. When the Comedy Central channel is
where you can get the best news, we’re in deep trouble.
When our forefathers didn’t like how our country was being run by the British, we had a
revolution. In the 1960’s, we came very close to a national revolt because politicians were
out of touch - we got their attention for only a short period of time. Maybe revolt is all
they understand?

Stay strong.  Stay involved.  Stay together.  Seek the truth.

Game of Thrones: Consolidating the City of Middletown Fire Districts?

Middletown Fire Deputy
Chief Steven J. LaRosa, EFO MPA
Middletown used to have 2 high schools. Now we have 1. There also used to be police sub stations, now the department is under one roof. Today we have 3 fire districts, but the debate is still lively as to whether these too could/should be consolidated. Residents receive an annual tax bill with a municpal tax (board of education budget is factored into this) and depending on which district you live in one of 3 possible rates - South Fire, Central Fire, or of Westfield fire in decending order of costliness based on annual budgeted cost of services.Some feel that the board of education should be a separate district tax so that taxpayers can more easily see how much of their bill goes to education. 

Consolidate: Below is a link of a these written by Deputy Chief of Middletown Fire District Steven LaRosa where he discusses in depth the consolidation of Middletown Fire Districts Westfield, Sout Fire & Middletown into one district. La Rosa outlines a comphrehensive strategy and cites research as to why this strategy is most beneficial to Middletown. The paper is entitled RUNNING AHEAD: Consolidating the City of Middletown Fire Districts. The paper is published on the U.S. Fire Administration's official website as a submission to the National Fire Academy training program. La Rosa has been a firefighter with the city of Middletown since 1983 and was made deputy chief in June 2014 & also an adjunct professor at the Connecticut Fire Academy.

http://www.usfa.fema.gov/pdf/efop/efo47982.pdf
Westfield Fire
Deputy Chief Darrel Ponzio

Don't Consolidate: Current Deputy Cheif Darrel Ponzio wrote an essay six years ago, posted October 2008 on the old Westfield Fire Dept. website stating his concerns about consolidation of departments & and what he claimed "encroachment." Ponzio's main arguement is that the Fire Districts are autonomous according to a 1930's state statute &amp enacting three taxing districts; there is little cost savings to districts with different needs. In a quote linked to Ponzio's post, Councilman Bauer concurred on the issue regarding statuatory regulations & ultimately it was each districts decision, but encouraged each to further study the issue. Ponzio states Westfield's milrate would increase with the consolidation, because unlike the Central and South Districts, Westfield has a small full time crew in proportion to its volume of volunteers, while the other two districts more crew and less volunteers. Read his reasoning can be read here: http://www.westfieldfire.net/2008_09_01_archive.html

Approximately 18 monthes ago the Common Council voted to consolidate several city departments. The cost savings have yet to be presented to the Common Council; a council study is supossedly "in the works." 

Could the Fire Department consolidation be back on the table?
Good idea or bad idea?

Rumblings: Nice guys finish last... or not at all.

1. ABANDONED: Mayor Dan Drew stated on the council floor he was going to have a report done to see how the 2013 blizzard that crippled the city could have been handled better. Rumors were that Danapolean gave the word to turn away help from the National Guard & there was a chest puffing match behind closed doors resulting in Middletown roads still being uncleared days later. No report.

2. ABANDONED: Mayor Drew & Gov. Malloy went to China in 2012 to "find jobs" and promised Councilman Pessina that a report would follow. And all that trade Drew said he opened up? How is China helping Middletown?? No report.

3. ABANDONED: Under Mayor Drew the Youth Services department launched a new website with reports with updates about activites. The website was last updated in Nov 6, 2013 Cuz he's "young guy mayor" Danny did start the Yoot Youth Cabinet (not to be confused with the already in existence Youth in Government Program cauz if you rename somethin you can take credit for it duh)

4. ABANDONED: Mayor Drew's twitter boasts a computer rendering of LED lights on the Arrigoni Bridge. Critics & the town of Portland felt the idea to "bring tourist" excessive. Why such a "great tourism destination" quietly abandoned by the Mayor if it was so awesome?

5. FINISHED: Both budget's under Mayor Drew's regime resulted in milrate increases for taxpayers. The democrats on council voted against all proposals for senior tax relief under the previous republican mayor, yet endorsed a watered down proposal from Mayor Drew while simultaneously raising taxes for everyone else two fiscal years in a row! 3X a charm?

6. STARTED: Mayor Drew advocated for the merging of Park & Recreation and Public works as well as the City Attorney's office and Personnel Depts. to "save money" No cost savings have ever been proven upon inquiry. In fact, outside Counsel is stilled used by the Office of General Counsel at tune of $60K for the investigation into the allegeded drug abuse allegations against the police chief. In 2013 he told the Courant he expected to save more than $150K a year; in other sources Drew is quoted saying the savings is in the MILLIONS. It has been a year & no cost savings have been proven.

7. ABANDONED: Several commitee vacancies have remained unfilled by Drewilishious. Example: Design Review & Inlands & Watercourses, Citizens' Advisory have  had  vacancies for the entire 3 years Drew has been in office. Drew has had time to redecorate the Mayor's office to the tune of $6K.

8.ABANDONED: 20 monthes later...all those grants Danious Maxious got. The bike path, the parking lot redo's,the parking garage... so how yall citizen's enjoying those? Give them bread and circuses...

9. ABANDONED: City Hall news letter. When Drewocles took office he initiated the practice of wishing workers happy birthday via special email, a practice most hadn't had the priveledge of experiencing since elementary school. He also initiated a city hall newsletter. The last publication of which was July 2012. 

10. ABANDONED: Mayor Drew put out a mandate that all committee meetings take place after 7 pm so that members of the public could attend. Clean Energy Task Force still meets at noon 3 years later. And the Harbor Improvement Committee NEVER has met despite the focus on the spanking new riverfront.

11. FINISHED (NOT REALLY): Mayor Drew ran on the campaign to end all lawsuits and grievances between the city, union members and the Board of Education. He even held a press conference declaring that the smoke was clear. However, lawsuits still exist 3 years later....

12. ALMOST NOT FINISHED: Just in time for Veterans' Day: Trees of Honor, the memorial dedicated to fallen Connecticut Soldiers of the Irag and Afganistan Wars is underway at  Veteran's Park in Middletown. After the photo ops with the Big Dannel were over, Mayor Drew went a little MIA on the details of the two+ year project. The ribbon cutting of the memorial was scheduled. What did Drew forget? The planting of the actual trees!! President of the City (D's prefferred moniker) forgot to secure resources - ie heavy equipment and man hours to get this done... so at the last minute project volunteers scrambled to get help to get 65 large trees in the ground before the dedication. Not even Joe Samolis, Mayor's Aide, could get this accomplished & the man has had to shovel some hefy mayoral do-do. Organizers contacted local papers  to put the call out for help; the papers convenietly leaving out the fact that the holes had yet to be excavated literally days before the opening...several TOH organizers posted requests via personal social media pages &amp sent emails in an effort  to dig the project out of the perdicament Drew left them with... Luckily, volunteers hauled a**  & finished the job beautifully. Gee.. thanks Mayor D...

Unlucky 13: ABANDONED: 
ANYONE kept tally of how much money has been 
appropriated every month by the Council?!?!
Just about every meeting the Common Council approves requests for additional funds to departments above and beyond what was allocated in the fiscal budget proposed by Mayor Drew and approved by the council. No news source has reported how much has been spent and when asked certain council persons have stated the budget is "fluid"... the bleeding of taxpayers has been STARTED.....

Fears are rising among Connecticut Democrat Incumbents

Congratulations to Theresa Tillett, senate candidate in the 2nd District. Although she lost the election, she is, quote; "the "Happiest Loser" in the CT GOP" and "doing the Happy Dance!"

In a district with only 3,198 registered Republicans, 4,479 voters cast their ballots in her favor. Like Middletown's own Angel Fernandez, she, too, ran a poor man's campaign, against a 30 year incumbent, with only a $1,000 budget.  Her opponent, Eric Coleman, had a $96,000 war chest.

Tillett, who has never before run for office, says she "would have much preferred winning", but is "thrilled by my (her) results". She also said, "my run for office has opened the Democrat's eyes; there ARE Black Republicans who they will have to deal with in the up coming elections."

Middletown Election Results: M-town is Blue, Red Rosa still Creepy

Middletown Ct Election 2014 Results: 10:00 pm UPDATE: Some districts in Middletown still have not reported numbers. Middletown High district 3 & 6 included. Witnesses confirm democrats rounded up folks at the soup kitchen & homeless in the north end today promising a hot meal & took them to the polls in a last effort push. Reports that over 500 Wesleyan students, most registering as democrats, were added as new voters in the final days before the election. Local Democrats & the Malloy campaign bused students to the polls from campus today. No word if meals were purchased for students by Democrats, as was done in the last cycle. Currently, the change to a 4 year term for mayor & common council as part of Middletown's Charter is looking likely based on reporting districts. Foley & Malloy are too close to call in Middletown at this time. The unofficial turnout hovers at 59% we are hearing from early estimates.

11:35 pm UPDATE: Szynkowicz conceded to Serra at 8:57 pm and offered her congratulations on his victory in person at City Hall. Fernandez conceded to Lesser at 10 pm & also congratulated him in the Council Chambers where Lesser watched votes being tabulated. Earlier Roberts conceded to incumbent Doyle. At this time final votes have not been tabulated from all districts. Bartolomeo remains in a slight lead over Suzio at this hour, however neither has conceded. Absentee ballots are also still being counted. No numbers yet on previously unreported districts.


12:00 am: UPDATE: At Council Chambers the tabulation scene was still chaotic well after 11:00 pm. The numbers from the registrars are being projected on the smallest screen available seemed all the more confusing with the excel spread sheet having missing cell formulas delaying the effort. The process seems antiquated. Vote counting is done publicly to be transparent; but the room filled with politicos & reporters gabbing makes it a long event. Finally all the numbers are in; we defer to the spread offered by the Courant below. 

2:00 am: UPDATE: No official results, available at the link embedded, have been filed with the Secretary of State for Middletown. Below are unofficial results published by the Hartford Courant. At 1:39 am Gov. Malloy declared himself the victor based on his campaign leaders' projections. 

Conclusions: 
1. Middletown might be D 3 to 1 but after Red Rosa visited in person last week at the Westfield forum, it was James Brown who stole our hearts proving M-town finds Delauro's antics creepy.  So far (based on early results), the only conservative to go the distance locally, & that he did! We'll done Mr. Brown.  

2.  In all other races the D's trumped the R's. Rumors of shenanigans are rampant. Candidates leaning over the screens of vote counters seems wrong.It was reported by a few that there was a party affiliated wearing a Malloy tee shirt assisting same day registrants in the lobby of City Hall earlier in the day causing moderators to repeatedly ask the person to remove such or vacate the area, which he refuses. Republican sign holders being unfairly questioned well outside the 75 ft radius from the polls, while the D's appeared to have carte blanche. D's Illegally posted signs on the grounds of the senior center, a public housing authority property. One would have hoped that with such a majority, the D's would take their victory with dignity,but hey, this is Middletown!
In reality, the locally running R's should be extremely proud- they have come closer than any others in recent past to the career politicians they challenged & exposed many truths about the incumbents in the process.

3.  D's will use free goodies for votes. Not quite legal, but it works.

4. How does Roberts get no votes? Did he not vote for himself!!? Something is up here. Seriously, this can't be true. And no write-ins reported? Call Councilman Bauer now!

5. The mayor's AIDE will drop Mayor Drew off places so he can campaign on the public dime all day, but keep the mayor mobile parked at City Hall like he's doing work.

6. No one has found any bags of uncounted absentee ballots yet giving a Malloy victory in Middletown, but $5 says it could still happen in Hartford ...
