  • Condom distribution policy starting in elementary school at Provincetown, Mass

    Sex education starts early, especially if you go to elementary school in Provincetown, Mass. That’s because the school committee has unanimously adopted a condom distribution policy beginning as early as first grade. According to the Provincetown Banner, the program requires that students speak to a school nurse or trained counselor before receiving condoms. The committee also directed school leaders not to honor demands from parents who object to their kids receiving protection. Some members on the committee were wary because the program requires that students speak to school officials first. But Beth Singer, the school’s superintendent, said she wanted to...

    GOP gubernatorial challenger Charles D. Baker is gaining steam in the hotly contested three-way race, coming within a seven-point striking distance of Gov. Deval Patrick in the most recent Rasmussen Reports poll. Patrick still has the lead at 41 percent of the voters polled, but he’s dropped from the 45 percent support he got last month. Baker has climbed to 34 percent - up from 31 percent last month - while State Treasurer Tim Cahill’s support has remained flat at 16 percent.

    Muslim leaders in Massachusetts fired back Friday at gubernatorial candidate Tim Cahill, who they accused of making "bigoted" statements after Gov. Deval Patrick met with members of the Muslim community. In a statement, a coalition of Muslim leaders called Cahill’s remarks "bigoted ... undignified" and "anti-democratic," and said the governor has a right to meet with members of all religious backgrounds. Last weekend, Patrick met with around 1,000 Massachusetts Muslim leaders who wanted to raise awareness about their faith and become more civically engaged.
  • Too much: Suspected Illegal Immigrant Hits MA Rep. Mike Moran And laughs

    A Bay State Rep gets rear-ended by a suspected illegal alien and the perp responds by saying, come and get me copper. In any other state this is the kind of story that would come down on Governor Deval Patrick like a ton of bricks. After all, he’s the guy that made it illegal to check for illegal, you know what I’m saying. But the best part of this story is the absolute arrogance on the part of the alleged perp.

    The future of US medicine under ObamaCare is already on display in Massachusetts. The top four health insurers there just posted first-quarter losses of more than $150 million. Most of them blamed the state's decision to keep premiums at last year's levels for individual and small-business policies, when they'd proposed double-digit hikes to match the soaring costs they've seen under the state's universal-coverage law. The companies have gone to court to challenge the state's action -- it apparently had no basis for its ruling beyond the political needs of Gov. Deval Patrick. If they win, Bay State health premiums will...

    Governor Deval Patrick, even as he decried partisanship in Washington, said today that Republican opposition to President Obama’s agenda has become so obstinate that it “is almost at the level of sedition.” The Democratic governor, who is close to the president, made the comments at a forum at Suffolk Law School's Rappaport Center, where he was asked by an audience member about partisan battling in Congress.

    But let's take a look at the situation here. Current Democratic Governor Deval Patrick, a close ally of President Obama, has helped run the state into the ground after Governor Romney straightened out a lot of the state government. Patrick won 55%-35% in a three-way race in 2006. Now he suffers from anemic approval ratings and in any other state would appear vulnerable. But this is Massachusetts.

    Gov. Deval Patrick’s standing with voters is so weak that this year’s race for governor is shaping up as a contest between his two rivals, a new Suffolk University-7News poll shows. “This race is really between Charlie Baker and Tim Cahill,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, which conducted the poll. “Whoever emerges between the Baker-Cahill race is likely to be the winner.”

    A Framingham rapist and Level 3 sex offender is accused of breaking his GPS monitoring bracelet and committing another rape and kidnapping after he violated his probation last month but was allowed to remain free. Prosecutors say William French, 29, raped a woman in Framingham on Thursday, just two days after Middlesex Superior Court Judge Howard Whitehead ordered French to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet for one year because he violated the terms of his probation by testing positive for smoking pot Jan. 4.

    Republican Congressman Mark Kirk is well ahead of his closest challenger in the race for the Republican Senate nomination in Illinois. GOP voters will pick their candidate on Tuesday. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely Republican Primary voters in the state finds Kirk leading attorney Patrick Hughes 53% to 18%. Twelve percent (12%) prefer some other candidate, and 18% are still undecided. Conservatives have been critical of Kirk for some of his positions in the House, and Hughes, chairman of a group called Sensible Taxpayers Opposed to Increased Taxes, is challenging him from the political right. But 51%...

    While Martha Coakley’s campaign teeters on the brink of becoming the biggest political implosion since that of her predecessor, Tom Reilly, there’s another Bay State Democrat who’s watching the Scott Brown freight train in a state of terror: Gov. Deval Patrick. Patrick insiders say the governor’s campaign people are horrified by Brown’s surge, considering that Patrick is facing a candidate eerily similar to Brown in Republican health-care honcho Charlie Baker, not to mention a well-funded moderate Democrat in independent candidate Treasurer Tim Cahill.
