Here’s another Clifford F. Blake 2 screed for the ages, He really needs to educate himself as to what certain words mean. The bold is his junk.


Some of our Selectman Did not want the people to vote for officials but have the selectman appoint them(SOCIALISM)




    “What we are attempting to do is create a financial management team in the town of Clinton that is accountable and professional,” said Connolly. “This isn’t an anti-democratic thing, this is a professional thing.” Selectman B Connolly


    P.S. Connolly – Notaro – Dickaught  it is a anti-democratic thing – taking peoples right to vote away its also a socialist thing.

    Clinton Tea party


Here’s his latest crap:
So I guess Cliffy Blake in his self-important mind really believes that appointing professional positions (non policy making positions that is) within town government is Socialism. Cliffy should wake the hell up and read the definition of Socialism.


Here it is Cliffy please read it and reread it until it sinks in, as you don’t have a clue as to the meaning.


Socialism – a. any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods b. a system of society or group living in which there is no private property


OK do you get it now??? Obviously not.


How do you know how I voted, You quite obviously weren’t paying attention.


So Cliffy, did you vote against giving the police a place to practice? Most likely, as I guess you must think that’s Socialist too.


Selectman Connolly called the school department on having $700,000 set aside from the school choice account that they could use instead of advocating for giving them the $300,000 that went to the stabilization fund. I guess that’s quite a blow to your accusations that Bill’s a liberal big spender.


You really should educate yourself as you have a marked lack of knowledge regarding town government. Think before you speak or write and call people such things.  You give the real Tea Party folks a bad name.

Mr.Clifford Blake 2 – Antipathy Defined

Cliff Blake has quite a bit of time on his hands based on the antagonistic blog posts he generates about myself and Selectman William Connolly, Jr. One in particular needs to be addressed as Cliff has his head securely placed where the sun doesn’t shine.


I will attempt to address the blatant lies, incoherent ramblings  and suppositions he has made. Unfortunately his rantings about us republicans are based on his own fallacious, cross wired synapses.  So here ya go Cliffy…


Comments on: Selectman (RINO) Connolly and RTC Chair RINO J NOTARO  05/22/2012


Nice name calling Clifford, it’s just like what the liberals do when they don’t get their way or want to destroy a person. You have proven that all it does is make you look like an angry misanthrope. Numbers 1-6 and Check out the Liberal Joe Notaro Chair of the RTC RINO site are from Cliff, (highlighted) the rest are my answers.


1) Selectman Connolly was for the 2-1/2 override ( Would have cost the people in the town $$$$$ higher Taxes).


That’s not a partisan issue per say Clifford. The schools in Clinton are now going down the tubes due to unfunded state mandates.  Special education increased by 1.2 million dollars this year alone, with no “extra funding” by the state. This in turn reduces home values and in the end all parties lose. I’m a fiscal conservative and dislike paying higher taxes for no reason.


2) Voted with MRD on almost every issue the same as MRD has.

Give us a couple examples instead of a blanket accusation, the board is a non-partisan board so if Ms Dickhaut who is an enenrolled voter votes one way and Mr. Connolly a republican votes the same, how is this a problem or conflict? If for instance both agree to give a car-lot a license, is that something you believe Selectman Connolly should immediately say no to, just so he votes opposite Ms Dickaut? (unless it raises taxes!)


3) Supports Liberal Dem Rep H Naughton – Tax and spend Liberal – Helped write the Bathroom Bill.


You have no concept of what we think, only anecdotal “sound bites” you and your handler make up. None of the republicans I know support that absolute heinous bill. You Mr. Blake are a real storyteller.


4) With his Little buddy the chair of the Clinton Town republican committee (Joe RINO Notaro) has gone against most all conservatives in the town.


Clifford, you are sadly mistaken, I’m conservative and I challenge you to give one solid piece of evidence that I’m not. You use that old liberal method of telling a lie enough until it becomes the truth in your mind. For the record, I’m a pro-life, pro-second amendment, fiscal conservative who also has some politically libertarian leanings, like keeping the government from regulating everything we do, think and say.  They need to stay out of our right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  I.E. smaller government, not larger!


5) Connolly and Notaro are nothing close to being Republicans.


We’re more republican than you’ll ever be Clifford, after all you changed parties from republican to unenrolled last year and have now flip-flopped back. Why is that?  So, as I’ve been a republican for years and never changed I guess that makes myself and Bill as well “more republican” than you are. Flip-Flop, Say did you vote in the republican primary on March 6th? I already know the answer.


6) Joe Notaro website says that Connolly is a champion of conservatism – But both of there actions in the past shows the real Liberals they both are.


Please give examples of how we have shown we are liberals? I want clear evidence, not your liberal, Saul Alinsky like “tell a lie enough until it appears to sound like the truth”.

That quote is clearly not in the short blog article I wrote, do you disagree that it was wise to mandate that Massachusetts enact the Secure Communities Act Clifford? Or do you reject it and believe illegals should be given amnesty? You Clifford are acting like a liberal moonbat.


More from Cliff: Check out the Liberal Joe Notaro Chair of the RTC RINO site.


As a former member of the military (thanks for your service) and a “supposed Tea Party affiliate” you have done both groups a disservice by acting like a petulant child. The real Tea Party folks would be appalled at your lack of any degree of civility. You are a a pusillanimous rock thrower who should get with the program and work toward the election of conservative republican candidates instead of acting like a childish oaf.  Did you happen to read the website below this and use it as your political guide? It certainly seems as though you did.

A Tale Of Two Tea Parties

By and large I like the change and discussion the advent of the Tea Party has brought on both a national and regional level. The last election cycle in 2010 brought us a lot of new faces at the national level and statewide there have been some successes as well.


However, and this is a big however, the local Tea Party we have in Clinton Ma is not anything at all like the national and regional groups that are working hand in hand with their local counterparts in political town and city committees. Look at the Twin City, Northboro, Marlboro and two Worcester Tea Party’s . They all seem to work with their GOP counterparts or at least not bash them. The Clinton Tea Party (CTP) has a completely counterproductive attitude at the least and will do nothing but help continue one party rule in Massachusetts.


The Clinton Tea Party (possibly not 100% of them) are nothing but a petulant, vitriolic, hate mongering machine. These people have an axe to grind with anyone that doesn’t agree with them 1000%. Take a look at the CTP website and all it has are articles it has stolen from copyrighted sites and re-posted. There are also many nasty comments about myself, the Clinton RTC Chairman and Clinton Selectman Bill Connolly written by and commented on by the two main CTP perpetrators. They were both on the losing end of elections and need people like us to blame for their losses rather than take personal responsibility for them.


I have run for office a total of four times, I’ve won twice and lost twice. Never in any election did I rely on the Town Committee to “make sure” I got elected, that was my job. So we now have in our midst a local Tea Party who’s members seem to believe they’re entitled to having a Town Committee do their campaigning for them. They sound and act like classic liberals to me.


The Republican party in Massachusetts is already the minority and instead of working toward a common goal of electing Republicans who have more in common with the national tea party at least, this group would rather use their negative energy to bash a local group consisting of 35 people instead of ridding our state and local government of big spending liberal candidates and incumbents.


This group needs to “grow up” and get a new leader that can take them toward the light and work for the betterment of “we the people”. Instead they seem to like going toward the darkness where all of us lose.


It’s groups like this that will sink the likes of Scott Brown. I’m not the biggest Scott Brown fan as he has voted counter to what I would have wanted in a number of cases, but remember, when you agree with someone 80% of the time he’s your friend not you enemy.


The alternative, Elizabeth Warren is a dangerous Socialist. One has to look no further than the Clinton Tea Party Website to see they are on the fringes of public opinion, they have a link to a Youtube video called “Massachusetts Disgrace Scott Brown the RINO”. If these people have their way Elizabeth Warren will be our next Senator so they can exact their pound of flesh from Scott Brown for not being the bible belt, far right candidate they longed for.

Warren – Lighting a Fire Under Conservative Butts?

Scott Brown has a big problem to tackle and with Elizabeth Warren now the democratic front-runner for his senate seat, this might be, just maybe, A watershed moment, the actual motivating factor that Conservatives need to line up behind the re-election of Senator Scott Brown.


Up until now, Tea Partiers that braved the elements and helped push Brown over the top to his historic victory back on that cold day in 2010 have been pissing and moaning about Brown’s leftish voting record, I certainly have. In fact some of his votes infuriated me to the point of wishing someone else had run and won that seat. However Warren’s lineage of being one of Obama’s TARP Czar’s, her fondness for progressive tax-and-spend policies, and her blatant disregard for the constitution should be giving Conservatives new reasons to heed her high profile, mega-financed campaign. (Soros is a doner!)


Brown isn’t the Conservative messiah many hoped he would turn out to be (myself included) But then again if you listened to his words at the time he did say as he announced his run for U.S. Senate  that the state “needs an independent thinker” ( So he did clearly tell us that he was not the “conservative” we were all looking for to replace Ted Kennedy.


So all you “big C” and “small c” conservatives out there, please take heed and listen to the socialist, big government words of Elizabeth Warren, take them to heart, process them and hopefully you to will see the value in supporting Scott Brown. It took me quite a while to come around to this decision, but our backs are against the wall and without support for Brown we’ll end up with a progressive Senator that will make Ted Kennedy look conservative in comparison.
