WyBlog, the best thing about New Jersey since the invention of the 24 hour diner.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan

Boston is the bluest of cities in one of the bluest states. They haven't voted for a Republican in something like 3,000 years. Arguments over politics hinge on who is more progressive, Che or Elizabeth Warren. Their only gripe about social programs is that government isn't spending enough money or hasn't raised taxes sufficiently yet.
So it cracks me up to see so many Bostonians turning out against the importation of illegal aliens into Beantown.
An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters.
While Bree Sison of CBS Boston estimated that the gathering drew hundreds of people, Jeff Kuhner, the host of WRKO's The Kuhner Report, who organized the rally, put the number closer to 10,000 people.
People carrying signs that said "Deport illegals," and "Americans before illegals" stood just outside the State House from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"I've never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever. People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite," Kuhner said of Gov. Deval Patrick's decision for Massachusetts to offer shelter to unaccompanied minors.
That's liberalism in a nutshell. They care about the less fortunate, until the less fortunate move in next door. It's the time-honored tradition of NIMBY — Not In My Back Yard — and I see it here in North Jersey all the time. The hoity-toity politically correct progressives of Montclair (Obama by 98.4%) ran a doctor I know out of town on a rail because his practice attracted "too many" low income patients whose walking through their tony neighborhood to and from the bus stop constituted a "nuisance."
But please don't call them racists, they donate to the NAACP! And they voted for an African-American feminist councilwoman with two hyphenated last names! Good thing she lives down the hill though.
The progressives of Massachusetts are no different. Check out this tweet from the uber-liberal feminists of Smith College:
Somebody should take care of undocumented immigrants, just not snooty rich girls majoring in Sociology and Gender Studies. They'll gladly wrap themselves in the flag, unless it's being waved to support our troops.
The irony? It gets lost in the sanctimony.
