Rude Andoverites

As a mother first, and now a grandmother, of children who have played sports both at the high school and college levels, I am appalled at the behavior of many students from Andover High School that I have observed of late. They are seated in the student cheering sections but are rude and obnoxious, they go far beyond just “cheering for the team,” and are allowed to behave that way, with no reprimand from anyone in authority! Shame on all of them.

Hello, hello?

Sunday afternoon, a Methuen DPW worker ran a stop sign, then stopped in the middle of Pelham Street to talk to another DPW worker. When I went to go around, he gunned the truck to cut me off. I called the city, they didn’t want to hear it and hung up on me.

Long memory

Got pulled over the other day by a Methuen police officer. This cop had such an attitude and was so cocky for no reason, it was pathetic. Come to find out I had some choice words for him in the past (five years ago) so he took it out on me the other day. But it’s cool because Methuen cops are known for their arrogance. Officer, I still feel the same way about you now that I felt five years ago.

Same old stuff

Monday’s political cartoon showed cartons of ex-lax being delivered to Congress. While this approach may get Congress moving, the output will still be the same.

Bullish on US

President Obama and his liberal Democrat cronies must feel pretty foolish today. With all their doom and gloom about Obama’s sequester the market just hit an all-time record high, indicating investors now have more confidence in America. Spending cuts are the only way we will have a economic recovery and investors realize it. Thanks, Republicans, for not being intimidated by Obama and the liberal Democrats into succumbing to their irresponsible and foolish requests to keep uncontrolled spending a constant. My investment portfolio surged today, and I am quite pleased.
