Free T rides
The CARES Act was not handed to give the folks of Boston free bus rides — any use of the cash for that objective is establishing a slippery slope .
I ponder if some mayor decides it might be good to have a brand new park or another worthy trigger for which the cash was not meant … it’s the misuse of public funds.
Now if Michelle Wu desires to take cash from the Boston finances to pay without cost rides for the folks of Boston so be it, however I don’t suppose the folks of Boston would purchase into it if it meant larger taxes

Russian marketing campaign
Jay Ambrose wrote a pleasant article about the Democrat’s shady try to smear President Trump with Russian collusion. The larger problem is that the “balderdash” and “political hooey” are variety phrases for outright political lies. Two-and-a-half years of a $40 million greenback Mueller investigation proved that our FBI was duped. The president was bombarded by baseless collusion prices. The actual wrongdoer was Hillary Clinton’s try to draw consideration away from her unlawful and reckless e-mail server and her compromised e-mail account. America was duped by the Democrats’ Russian fiasco.
