Today on DaTechGuy on daRadio will be a rant against stupidity.

We will talk about the stupidity of Market Basket taking a profitable company with a loyal workforce and customer base and thanks to a family feud tearing it asunder.

We will decry the stupidity of the moral equivalence in Gaza where the world wrings its hands because Israel attacks Hamas to keep its women & children from being killed while Hamas hides behind their women and children in the hope of generating worldwide anger.

We will laugh at the stupidity of Deval Patrick’s outrageous claim that his openness to taking in the illegal immigrant children in Massachusetts is not a political decision.

And finally we will decry both the stupidity of Malaysia air in flying over a live war zone and the stupidity of the west which I suspect will fall into Putin’s ceasefire trap.

That’s a lot of stupidity for one hour but we’ll do our best on DaTechguy on DaRadio today and you can join into our rant against stupidity at 888-9-fedora

One FYI starting this week we are going down to 1 hour.

It’s been a long time since we did the Saturday Diners but as we broadcast live from Rita Marie’s.Diner in New Bedford Ma. 623 Brock Ave

I got there an hour early and spoke to the owner:

The team is a father and son and the Father had a long experience of restaurants & speciality cooking.

I had the eggs and Linguisa:

Rita Marie's breakfast

The Linguisa was not what I expected as it looked just like a thick hotdog but the taste was first rate, but the star was actually the toast. They use a very think bread that comes out spectacular and really complements the meal.

The Diner is in a thickly settled neighborhood just a block or so from the beach on a small peninsula and the location has been empty for quite a while, and while as I’ve said the Father & Son have experience with cooking they do NOT have experience in diners, that’s usually a problem but luckily for them they hired a lady named Michelle who has been working at diners since before her teenage days. She gave us the rundown on Rita Maries and what makes a diner work

That is the type of hire that leads to success.

One final thing, there is a huge ice cream cooler & fountain and they carry 14 flavors so during the summer it’s a great place to get a cone after hitting the beach.

It’s a long drive for a guy like me in Fitchburg but if you are heading to New Bedford to see the attractions it’s certainly worth a stop & try the wings the homemade sauce they use is incredible.

So give them a shot, their facebook page is here

Today on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we at the last minute decided to change direction.

The time has come to ditch the weekly goal to focus on the monthly figure, that’s where the real action is at.

In order for this to be a viable full-time business this blog has to take in enough to make the mortgage/tax payment for the house (Currently $1210 monthly) and cover the costs of the writers writing here (another $255)

What a difference a day makes.

24 hours ago being only 32% toward a full paycheck was no big deal. We had our best ever January for traffic and the monthly goal was made with some to spare.

Today it’s February, a whole new Mortgage payment now looms, a whole new month of Magnificent Seven pieces need to be paid for and in 25 days $800+ in CPAC travel & Hotel bills will show up on the credit card.

So it’s once again time to start worrying if DaPaycheck is short a bit.

It will take $234.50 to make this week’s paycheck That’s just under 10 $25 tip jar hits in under 24 hours.

It’s possible but only if you hit DaTipJar below.

If 55 3/4 of you choose to subscribe @ at $20 a month then that problem will be solved on a more permanent basis.



On Friday Morning Joe did three segments (in fairness one was a repeat) on Mike Huckabeee remarks concerning how Democrats look at women.

I found the segments fascinating,  concentrating on the pluses they played the full remarks in context at the beginning of both segments so regardless of whatever else I thought of what they said the viewer had the chance to hear the words as said as opposed to certain reporters who after the left pushed a lie around the world “clarified” what he had said in context

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

But from that point on the emphasis was all “Uncle sugar” & “libido”. The point he was making was in MSNBC Shtick, it wasn’t till the end where Joe Scarborough make the point that nobody is telling me Mika et/al didn’t get in the first place.

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Then in the middle segment they took the liberty of repeating that same performance with a different crew and throwing in the Governor Cuomo story that they managed to ignore until they had a person to put up at the same time.

The whole point of the segments were that the GOP is hopefully out of touch with women as opposed of course to Democrats.

That theme was continued in the Atlantic:

The creepy, condescending-uncle image, the retrograde attitude toward sex: Huckabee managed to illustrate exactly the phenomenon he was trying to decry, the perception that Republicans don’t know how to talk to or about women.

Washington Monthly:

The Mike Huckabee brouhaha yesterday offered about the 155th recent opportunity for non-conservatives to observe that the “rebranding” exercise of the Republican Party isn’t going that well.

and The American Prospect:

Ignorance: These kinds of statements tend to come from older conservative men who have no idea how ladyparts work, and really don’t want to know. That extends to contraception, which as far as they’re concerned is something that is women’s responsibility and therefore there’s no need to understand it.

and the Democrat party wasted no time creating a web video clipping the speech to make it wildly out of context:

The bottom line those nasty republicans are unenlightened when it comes to women.

Which brings us to Massachusetts State Rep Carlos Henriquez:

You haven’t heard of Representative Carlos Henriquez? Well in July of 2012 he was charged with Kidnapping and assault of a woman. In Sept the kidnapping charge was dropped but the other charges remained pending.

Strangely enough this took place at the height of the entire “War on Women Meme” was being advanced by the press however as Mr. Henriquez has a (D) next to his name the media didn’t find those charges reflective of the War on Women meme so not only did it get very little press, but even with the charges hanging over him he ran for re-election and won by 46 points! in his overwhelmingly Democrat Boston district.

The media’s disinterest continued on the subject as he served then on January 14th Henriquez was convicted of two counts of A & B on & sentenced to 2 1/2 years with 6 months to serve. The next day the Mass GOP called on the Governor to demand his resignation

“The MassGOP calls on the state’s leading Democrat, Governor Deval Patrick to immediately demand the resignation of Representative Carlos Henriquez. If the resignation is not tendered right away, there may not be adequate time for a special election and thus robbing the good people of Dorchester representation on Beacon Hill.”

Three days later I had the Chair of the Massachusetts GOP on my radio show and we marveled at the fact Mr. Henriquez was still a state rep.

MA GOP Chair Kirsten Hughes: …again absolute power corrupts absolutely and that just Henriquez is just one example of a long line of them.

DaTechGuy: and just to make sure that our listeners to make it clear he’s actually been convicted and sentenced to jail.

KH: That’s right six months yea

DT: this isn’t just a person whose been accused now he’s been convicted and sentenced, and we keep hear about the Republican “war on woman” yet we have a guy here, a state rep whose actually assaulted a woman and you have the chair of the republican party in Massachusetts who happens to be a woman calling for his resignation and the governor…

Joe Mangiacotti: won’t do. He was sentenced Wednesday to six months in jail that was…

KH: Yeah

JM: … what happened there. Ahem According to police he choked and punched Catherine Gonzalez in the Summer of 2012 that was his, he took her for a ride and took her cell phone she was, drove her to Boston she was able to escape the vehicle and call the police and that’s what…

DTG: It Boggles the mind

four days later Adrian Walker at the Boston Globe, to his credit, wrote the following about Mr. Henriquez:

It’s been nearly a week now since the Dorchester lawmaker was convicted of assaulting a woman who had dared to refuse to have sex with him. She was a college student who met him working on a class project; somehow she ended up assaulted and stranded on the side of the road at 4 a.m. after jumping out of his car. Henriquez didn’t testify or make any statement after the verdict.

A judge sentenced him to six months in the Suffolk County House of Correction with the words, “When a woman tells you she doesn’t want to have sex, that means she does not want to have sex.”

If that doesn’t establish Mr. Henriquez credentials as a belligerent on in the “war on women” nothing does but in the best traditions of the Democrat Party & Bill Clinton …

Henriquez plans to appeal his conviction. That’s his right, but his pursuit of an appeal raises the terrible prospect that he plans to hang on until it’s denied or even until he gets out of jail. Either would rate a high place in the annals of political selfishness. The fate of his constituents should not be tethered to his long-shot appeal.

The House, of course, can kick him out. But the Ethics Committee process is opaque and convoluted. The committee would have to conduct its own investigation of Henriquez’s misbehavior. Sure, the trial transcript could substantially shorten that process. But the fact is, a convicted criminal shouldn’t have to be expelled.

Even though he appeared at a house hearing this week in handcuffs I have to ask Mr. Walker is this:

Why WOULD Mr. Henriquez even consider resigning?

The media in the middle of a national election with a “war on women” meme found a Democrat pol charged with assault and kidnapping not significant enough to warrant national attention. His heavenly democrat district re-elected him by 46 points. Democrats in the state didn’t find his being charged sufficient ground to call for his resignation and apparently his conviction hasn’t prompted those calls either. Update:

The conviction prompted a chorus of calls for his resignation. Governor Deval Patrick, House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, and Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh all called for him to resign, and DeLeo said he was taking steps to expel him, if he does not step down.

And now It’s Sunday and while the national media and the professional left take glee at the remarks of Mike Huckabeee Carlos Henriquez remains a state representative because he knows that nobody in the national media will take any note…

…not as long as he has a D next to his name.

Here is my take on the subject from Yesterday’s show

Exit question. If Henriquez was a republican would there have been any other story in the news until he resigned and was denounced by every single GOP person in the universe on camera?

Bonus question:  If you argue that Henriquez is a “local story” explain the coverage of Bob Filner of California or Mayor Ford whose in a different damn country!

Update: finished the “nasty republican” sentence that was hanging

Update 2: Remember Henriquez’s arrest took place in the middle of the Brown/Warren race I wonder how many time Elizabeth Warren talked about a Republican “war on women” vs the amount of time she called on Democrat Carlos Henriquez to drop out of his race?

Update 3: Kathleen Parker says “It’s all how you say things” but what if like, in the case of Democrat Carlos Henriquez, the media won’t say anything?

Update 4: An alternative timeline plus a correction above of some post conviction calls for resignation. Funny you would thing the arrest & charges would have been enough to start the chorus.

It’s Sunday the start of a new pay week spanning the end of this month and the beginning of the next one and I start the week in an unusually enviable position.

My monthly goal has already been reached I’ve already transferred the funds to pay the Jan mortgage (which will be done later today) and have begun paying my Magnificent Seven their well deserved fees for their excellent pieces.

However complacency is not called for.  The business has been carrying some credit card debt.  A weak week will decrease it, a week as spectacular as last week’s would half it.

So I would ask you to consider hitting DaTipJar to get me a little ahead before February begins
