"And when my neighbor you know who's been spending fifty straight days in his poll retired at fifty two from the MBTA are I don't even have a pension from the arm be depending on them when they got acting they could be collecting several pensions from different departments with these people the whole time job now is to go to the bank yeah exactly the process is a pension I mean this thing I'll I'll say is that you can do that the savings that like firing people that are doing their jobs they're never as much as you think they're going to be I do think that that's true so so folks who are angry about any sort of tax and and feel as though it should all come from some sort of savings I I do think that there is I don't know if that's possible considering what the requirement is for our transportation system what the unfunded liabilities that are that are built in the come with it the dead weight that is yeah that is tough enough to be service right is just like this ongoing tragedy yeah you know it's like we've all been in credit card debt we can only pay the minimum every month you know that's terrible unless a parent fails me out I am screwed meanwhile is building and building and building right yeah no it's it's brutal but you're right this is a great paper today you are right it's got so much I just love it so yeah so so I mean and I think my interest in the are in the situation you can't hear what senator Eric lesser sad about just the sheer ineptitude and not be consumed with interest about what's gonna be next for these are for the for the R. envy because it's like are you kidding me at what is exactly gone down your you all I wanted to know was like what's next what are they going to be getting from them what are they going to hear from this from these auditors and by the way you know what the contract with the Honorverse is interesting because of course while little wallet details some numbers and I reported on this last week well it detail some of the numbers there's a lot of it that sort of dependent on how many hours how many databases they end up you know creating and all that sort of stuff so it's just an interesting from my perspective because a lot of times when when somebody's auditing something it means obviously the department's done something wrong how can we be sure that these folks you know we are on the up and up it seems as though they're pretty well respected but it just seems like something that was forgotten in the Kerr sort of kerfuffle that followed but at any rate she is just absolutely incredibly interesting this fall out and then we've got great reporting bright children now talking about food stamps people trying to use it there or welfare dollars for buying marijuana and thankfully our state is stop them and he's got sort of a breakdown of of apparently thirty four cases people tried to do this the state was on top of it but I mean this is a classic Herald story we've got you know I wrote back in the day about about booze and and all sorts of different things that were being purchased with EBT cards you know what that does to its ancillary hilly but make sure you are it make sure worry that Sean o'connell's leaving their legislative literature yeah why because she was such a list all worked kind of guard for the stuff yeah she's quoted though I mean she's still I'm saying but she's going on for many years and she always home that's too bad yeah she's amazing yes she was receiving T. hurt me Jeff deal yeah and she was our envy to I mean that's the thing eight there's a first of all it is incredible that there's so few people that exist in the world to call this out I mean normally here we have in terms of the RV we've got the chairman of the transportation committee they are Democrats and really the only reason by the way that they're going the whole hog on this is because they were they were I guess what's the word I'm looking for disrespected that's why they're so angry about this yeah I mean I hate to say it I'm I'm sure that they wanted to get to the heart of the matter before but we didn't nobody showed up to their party they really got upset you know and and and so it's sad I mean I feel as though a lot of times Democrats are in the legislature which of course there's a majority of these guys are Democrats are willing to look the other way not go you know not really go whole hog tearing into certain departments based on sort of a what can you do for me situation and so a lot of times when there are these failures these horrific oversights you don't see politicians are tearing into these departments quite as much but in this case thankfully they have and and so hopefully that'll continue this is why people like Sean o'connell are so necessary to you know to to basically be there and call out different places so many democratic lawmakers either support welfare or you know don't really care to rock the boat with welfare that stories the dead are about people abusing their welfare cards they don't really I mean I'm I'm sure they don't like it but they're not going to they're not going to weigh in on it with any sort of passion and so as he said people like both Jeff deal and shop o'connell and you know who who was the other person Richard to say you know back in the day it's like we have these Republican voices who aren't afraid to call the administration's out in you need that sort of at least from the media's perspective certainly arouse the oversight goes away because guess what there's jobs available for loved ones or you know who knows right so it's really interesting I also I sort of love how we cars column because I mean my favorite part about it is first of all it was with more is going to the Iowa fair this weekend so and that's classic you know all the all the presidential candidates will go there but my favorite part is that he compared the two thousand four John Kerry going to Ohio and asking can I get me a hunting license to the I'm going to get me a beer which is exactly perfect it's exactly the same thing it's just it's you know just glad he put a button on it and included those in the same paragraph and the other thing that I sort of liked so the new narrative despite all appearances to the contrary she's really good with people oh god sorry I just you know so it's it's a great it's a great newspaper and it's got a lot of awesome news packed in there and so I highly suggest people pick it up yeah I was all different things you've got obviously local national which is always you know a different discussion courses and continue coverage of of the mass shootings in el Paso and date as the president is going to be heading to both cities today so that's always kind of on the table but that this local stuff is is amazing the arm V. stuff just blows my mind anything do transportation absolutely blows my mind because it really is one of those agencies that all you wanted to do was run efficiently it doesn't have to be aspirational it doesn't have to be you know outside the box just the train should run on time and people driving should have valid licenses so that they're not out there killing people I mean that doesn't seem like a lot to ask right and that's all that people ask they want they want less news about the arm V. or the MBTA the less you hear about that the better one of those things when you're hearing about it it's like okay what happened is a train derailed the red line is still moving very slowly especially going back into Boston from Braintree in the supposed to last until October which is going to impact everybody's lives for the next couple months that you know use the red line so that's all you want you don't need any superstars you just need people who do their job well and in terms of course of these visits today president trump is making at least Christians king has a great story where of course Cory Booker can't let this opportunity pass rate one of a Booker staffers is saying that trump needs to book the truck needs also cancel his rallies in New Hampshire because somehow of this we've got Booker staffer cancel the trump rally that is going to be happening in New Hampshire eight it's eight it is such an interesting interesting time and the idea of course that they are calling for unity right they're calling for a president to lead and unify while sniping at him and absolutely so in discord is is one of those it's one of these ongoing issues and then he course takes the bait and those added on twenty yeah just be above it all just go down there I know it's hard to do but I know it's not really in his DNA or it's not in his golf club no pun intended he doesn't have the club so maybe it's better if he did that but look this is what he does when when someone calls him out he comes back at it and comes at back at it more forcefully he's got more followers any other any other politician of course he does on Twitter with the exception of possibly Barack Obama he's got more Twitter followers than any other politician in the country I mean AOC has like four million followers she's very very active on Twitter trump has I don't know in excess of forty fifty million mile on Twitter yeah he's got a ton of followers on Twitter I mean even if you don't like them you follow him on Twitter because it amplifies the fact that you don't like him I mean the alarmist rhetoric that is it is so this somehow this rally is going to threaten American safety somehow I mean eight it is in stated it in here they are of course saying that it's it's trucks language that is created violence yeah II when in fact you've got people like William Castro's brother there or whatever pointing out the people who have donated to trump for it for some reason right in a in a very weird way and then you've got Cory Booker's it ministry or whatever his his campaign staff saying that it's trump that's going to threaten American lives by showing up and having a political campaign right is ridiculous right now that's a click the Castro thing is an absolute called action that is at least harass these business it's terrible at.
