More on The Massachusetts Quarter Travesty

I guarantee if you took an unbiased poll of people around the country, the recognition and association of The Man At The Wheel would be overwhelming in relation to some nondescript building in Lowell.

But what really gets me is the utter disregard for Gloucester in all things political.

The South Shore gets ridiculous amounts of money to fund projects at Woods Hole.  Some park that hardly anyone has ever heard of gets to bump off Gloucester on the Massachusetts quarter.  Our fishing industry gets reduced to a fraction of it’s former self.

All these other places get funding and recognition.

We should just line up all our citizens and let them kick us in the balls and get it over with.  It would be more painful at first but maybe we could get past it.

Where is our representation???

I hope to christ that they are on the phone screaming and taking someone’s head off.  Enough is enough.

If you are as disgusted as I am won’t you join me in writing the US Mint?

In The Loop is a smart comedy that is drawing instant comparisons to some of the great political and absurdist comedies such as Doctor Strangelove, Wag The Dog and Thank You For Smoking by way of the legendary troupe Monty Python. With razor-sharp, truly laugh-out-loud dialogue the film pokes fun at the absurdity and ineptitude of our highest leaders. With everyone looking out for number one, and the fate of the free world at stake (but apparently incidental), the hilarious ensemble cast of characters bumbles its way through Machiavellian political dealings, across continents, and toward comic resolutions that are unforeseeable.

“A venomous and incisive cinema exposé and it builds a relentless head of comic steam that never subsides.” -Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine

“The savage comedy of ‘In The Loop’ is enough to justify hailing it as a triumph.” -Allan Hunter, Daily Express

The Man At The Wheel Gets Bumped For Some Park In Lowell?

This morning’s Gloucester Daily Times brought news that the state’s quarter will not be sporting The Man at The Wheel Icon even though it won in a landslide of votes, and is being bumped for some park that no one outside of Lowell has ever heard of.

You have got to be fucking kidding me!

Who the hell has ever heard of the Lowell National Park and does anyone really think that our State in any way should be associated with a park in Lowell rather than The Proud Man At The Wheel.  This state was founded on Codfish you fucking idiots!  What a laughing stock the state of Massachusetts will become if this travesty is allowed to happen.

They put it out to vote- The Man at The Wheel Won in a landslide, and now they are pulling the rug out from under us for a park in Lowell????

Lowell…………….. seriously??????????
