Say goodbye to the carpetbagger from the woods of New England

Dear Editor:

Mr. Jamie Cryan, Chairman of the Hoboken Democratic Committee, was dead on target when he said last week “the one good thing about the day was the parade, and they got rid of that.”I’d like to ask Chief Falco to provide statistics involving the criminality of the parade in past years. This should be interesting.

The fact is the parade lessened the impact of the hooligans. I asked several of them a few years ago what the plan was. Their response was, “whatever you do, don’t go to the parade.” Why? “Because you won’t be able to get into the bars cause the lines would be too long.”

We have become a town without pity. It’s like we don’t even have a soul anymore. But I have some great news fellow Hobokenites. I am changing my name to “None of the Above.” The wife doesn’t like it because she’ll be known as “Mrs. None of the Above,” but that’s too bad, Let me explain.

In November, 2013, we get the opportunity to vote for a new mayor. If after scoping the list of candidates and you don’t like what you see, just hit the button that says “None of the Above.”

There’s two things you can be sure of. One is that we’ll get the parade back. That is if they’ll ever come back! Eliminating St. Patrick and replacing him with Leprechauns can’t be a good thing. It’s downright sacrilegious and troublesome.

The second thing you can be sure of by hitting the “None of the Above” lever will be the replacement of the most reprehensible holiday season decorations that I have ever seen anywhere on this planet! Most people think they’re little plastic gaudy snowflakes made to look like non-denominational politically correct ornaments.

My friend informed me that they’re actually “Stars of David” in disguise. I told him that was impossible because David was a great king and those snowflakes couldn’t even come close to doing him justice!

Yours Truly,
“None of the Above”

I found this offensive. I also found the article on the Hoboken Horse website about the projects offensive, His false rumors that the HHA residents were going to "riot" at the last meeting. Based on nothing...

Then there was no riot.

So he writes; "It appeared evident to this observer that word had gone out about the story here leading into the meeting and instructions were given to improve the decorum. "

What a big head he has! Yeah dude, 'those people' changed their behavior because of your fantasy web site. you really have quite an impact for sure.

We here at Chaz Team Mason were definitely offended by the Horseman at MSV. He didn't name the suspects but he may have been referring to us when he talked about "the usual suspects" going out and "ginning up a mob."

Well Beth sent a team of us there but we were on good behavior and didn't start much trouble. Matt got thrown out and Tim Occhipinti but stuff happens in the heat of an election.

Heard one commissioner complained about harassment at the meeting asking for police protection. Don't think it was any of us. We may have tried to impede some progress at recent meetings but we're being careful.

Did the Horse just scoop everyone again on a Police Chief Falco lawsuit. Said something about getting it not from a legal source. Is that a hint of a leak at HPD?

OR could it be a hint of a leak at City Hall maybe someone giving info directly to the Horse? Since the mayor has said she'd fire anyone who leak's information, will there be an investigation? Man its tough following your own rules! And trying to distract attention by blaming political opponents all da time.. Horsey find tougher!~

The item the Horseman posted showed a legal abstract available to any lawyer with database access. That came out first and the only people who would have had the document were Chief Falco and his lawyers.

This is bad. Can we get Beth to sue the court system along with the FBI? They have been kinda uncooperative. Something about Beth's computer. We told them she doesn't use that computer. Why won't they accept that?

Clearly you did not get the memo, Mr. None of the above. You are not entitled to express an opinion that is critical of anything without a self appointed mayoral spokeswoman posting here under different screen names in order to scare you into never writing anything critical again. They were hoping you would sign your name so they could look up information about you and post about you for seven or eight days in a row in order to shut you up, from the writing style its my guess you have lived here a very long time and have an opinion like anyone else. How sad that you are not entitled.

James, this was not authorized at our Mason pow wow. Can you stop obsessing over that woman? It's not helping. She's not everywhere, in your closet or under your bed either.

She's definitely gotten into your head. It's only satire dude, get over it. We need to focus on stopping Ruben Ramos and getting our boy Timmy in. That's what Beth expects of us.

I wonder if someone wanted to write a letter for the mayor against her opposition if they would be allowed to sign it anonymously? Probably not. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a 411 letter where there was no actual "reader" who wrote this. I guess the rule of thumb is the newspaper allows someone to anonymously bash a politician as long as the letter agrees with the ideas of upper management and their advertisers. Disgusting. Like the rest of the people in this town searching for good journalism, I'm done reading this paper.

How did the reporter get "say goodbye to the carpetbagger from the woods of New England" from that letter?

Maybe you should just write your own letters and cut out the middle man.

Not sure who to thank first but kudos to the parade campaign folk to keep the spirited divisive efforts of Tim Occhipinti and Jamie Cryan alive with this anonymous anti-Semitic masterpiece.

It's a masterful job and one Beth Mason can both take pride in while keeping a silent healthy distance.

Remember, kindling hatred is the best motivator to get our people to the polls. Look, if we can't get a day off from school for St. Patrick's Day, we certainly don't need to cater to the Stars of David crowd.

There's nothing like anonymous, heartfelt anti-Semitism to make you feel all warm and buzzed like double shots of Jameson inside.

Kudos to the Hudson Reporter, you guys really outdid yourselves this time.

Beth hasn't been this happy since the Nazi Truck went out for its inaugural ride.
