Don't #%^* with Bay Staters

When King George was being an asswipe, the good people of Massachusetts kicked his troops the #%^+ out of here in short order and started a revolution.

The Bay State was the first state to have public education, first to end slavery, first to legalize trade unions, and the first to embrace gay marriage. The US Constitution is modeled on Massachusetts' state constitution, the oldest living constitution on the planet.

And now... Elizabeth Warren, a governor who says "you #%^*ing me? Let the kids stay here, they're kids and they need our help", and an earthquake in labor relations that experts say they haven't seen since... well, ever.

On behalf of my fellow Massholes, I say... you're welcome. Let's make this a nationwide thing, OK?.

1. A Rec from California, because we're doing our part

We're sorry for Feinstein and Issa, really. But our deep blue state is going to do some good things, including, *fingers crossed* single payer. We don't have chowda, but we do rock the vino. So hello from the other side and thanks MA!

2. Massachusetts expat here

 

I remember the bumper stickers from Nixon's second term: "Don't Blame Me, I'm from Massachusetts."

Keep talking about politics, Manny, so we can take our minds off baseball (sob).
