Ocean state job killer


The Rhode Island GOP came up with the line about  Governor Gina Raimondo that best sums up the toll debate. As much as the governor thinks her toll bill will be good for business, Ocean State Job Lot proclaimed loud and clear that the tolls will hurt business. The toll bill is all about creating a separate revenue source for unions to pave the roads and fix the bridges forever. The money from the tolls will go directly to the unions for a  road construction job that will never end. The unions will then turn around and donate to the campaign of " Queena" Raimondo. The toll bill has nothing to with making the state " business friendly," and everything to do with providing the unions their own source of money. What will the speaker get in return for the toll bill?  There is big money to  be made off the legal fees surrounding the tolls and the local cities and towns. The toll bill is a pivotal moment for Raimondo. Listen to John DePetro on WPRO radio weekdays from 9-12noon.

For whom the polls tolls

Rolling out tolls during an election year is either a bold move or a very stupid move, depending on how things shake out in the end. Will voters hold " tolls" against elected officials when they go to the polls in November? Speaker Mattiello and Governor Raimondo under-estimated voter anger when they proposed moving the Pawsox to Providence and look how that turned out. The leaders on Smith Hill seem oblivious to the fact that voters don't trust them and have lost complete faith in local government. How do you make the state even more business unfriendly? Putting up truck tolls to grab money out of trucks passing through Westerly to Woonsocket in the latest attempt to " move the economy forward." It doesn't seem to be a matter of " if" cars will be added but " when" tolling on cars begins. Follow the latest on the John DePetro show on WPRO.

Is Raimondo rolling out the red carpet for the Islamic state?

Governor Gina Raimondo is certainly making a name for herself as a delusional  Obama " water carrier," by refusing to announce Rhode Island will not welcome  Muslim terrorist of the Islamic state escaping Europe. As the world was shocked and horrified at the events unfolding in Paris, Raimondo sent out a quick " thoughts and prayers" tweet, then continued on her liberal, progressive way, treating the Paris attacks as no different than a car accident. Why not announce Rhode Island will not be accepting the incoming Muslims?  The Governor will not change her stance on accepting Syrian refugees into Rhode Island, and  views the real threat of terrorism as a " hypothetical" situation. Raimondo is in favor of drivers licenses for illegal aliens, Rhode Island is considered a " sanctuary  state," and she would rather put citizens  at risk then offend her illegal allies, and liberal, progressive supporters.  Rhode Island has  seen illegals from around the globe arriving to take advantage of the state's "no-waiting "period for welfare, and Providence is proving to be a prime destination for third world criminals. The Boston bombing brothers were in and out of the state, a member of ISIS was arrested in Warwick, and Newport has been listed as an ISIS target.  Rhode Island cannot afford to take care of more people who need government assistance, let alone possible members of ISIS.
