For Immediate Release: Thursday, June 21, 2012

BOSTON – Tomorrow, Senator John Kerry will visit Fall River to award a $14,453,524 federal grant to the Fall River Fire Department. The new Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant will prevent two fire stations from closing and save 79 firefighter jobs that would have been lost due to local budget cuts.

“Mayor Flanagan, Chief Silvia, and I went full force on this effort because we knew it meant the real difference between saving 79 firefighter jobs and protecting this city or laying off these brave first responders and telling Fall River they’d have to go it alone,” said Sen. Kerry. “FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security heard us loud and clear, and I’m thrilled to be able to come to Fall River and personally deliver on this all-hands-on-deck effort to save critical jobs that protect this city and save lives.”

So we, the hard working taxpayers of the United States have to bailout a local government in Massachusetts because they mismanaged their financial affairs to the point where they can’t provide for basic services. Unreal!

This is a prime example of a PANDERING POS. It also enforces the knowledge that Liberals suffer from mental illness. I don't understand how any self respecting citizen could cast a vote for this thimble-brain. But, then I stop and ask myself, whose stupid. He got elected and reelected. What a stupid state. Then you look at Dukakis, Patrick, Kennedy, all of them, it's unbelievable.

So, they pay for the fat pensions and bennies and claim it’s to “save” a Fire Department.

John Kerry is a national disgrace.

...And should have been kicked out of the Navy.

Wait. I believe he was. How convenient Carter’s discharge upgrade program came about at just the right time for J Effing K.

Has he ever released his full military record? No. Why not?
