    Two weeks ago we shared with you this story about Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse, who cut corners and cost the lives of three innocent people, because he did a “brown out” of a fire engine that could’ve saved their lives. It’s been some time since then, but nothing has been done to address this situation. Instead it looks like Holyoke firefighters continue to have to do their jobs with inadequate equipment and staffing:

    Not good. I wonder how many people have to die before he finally gets around to doing his job. Although he IS very busy right now, trying to convert Holyoke’s many abandoned factories into marijuana growing facilities. Because that’s obviously more important than public safety.

    Hey here’s an idea. Since Alex Morse gets a salary of over $85,000 a year, and he has people on his “staff,” perhaps he should take a paycut to fund the fire engine. After all, you’re the mayor of a city with 40,000 people. You’re not exactly Tom Menino. I like this city councilor’s idea of slashing his salary by 75% if he can’t figure out how to fund the fire engine. Makes sense to me. Or just take away his entire staff and see how well he does his job without the right equipment and personnel around him.

    In the meantime we’ve got adorable children and their families basically begging him to do his job:

    But he’s too busy raising money for his re-election campaign:

    Hey Alex, here’s an idea – figure out a way to get the fire engine back up and running before you go around playing social justice warrior champion of the world. Or don’t. And then we can find someone to overthrew you in the election in November. Ask our friends Tracy Novick, Melinda Boone, and Hilda Ramirez how that story ends.

      I hope you have screen shots to replace the first four pics in this article. They just read; “This Facebook post is no longer available. It may have been removed or the privacy settings of the post may have changed.”

        This turtleboy must be a newbie. Rule #1: Always use screen shots so you have proof. Embedded links can disappear as this turtleboy found out.

      I thought you were against parents using their children as props. Hypocrites

    3. Blood on his hands


      Obviously he doesn’t care about public safety, especially when poorer or working class people are involved. No conscience obviously.

      You can get an award because you like a specific genitalia?!?! Well… I love pussy!!! Where’s my trophy!?!? Does it look like the major award lamp from Christmas Story… because that is like electric sex on display….

    5. holy-joke


      Mickey Morse does not care, he never did, unless your first sentence is always “As a gay….”
      The citizens of Holyoke…I’m sorry, the TAX PAYING citizens of holyoke have had enough! Please anyone run against this joke of a politician. Trumps america?! I’m hoping for ‘Trumps Holyoke’!

    6. Hell of Holyoke


      All he cares about is being gay, faking hate crimes, and growing weed
      in abandoned buildings with taxpayer money.
      In my opinion he doesn’t care about the residents in
      Holyoke, but he does care about his salary. So I think they should slash it
      till he pays up. He’d never be able to work for a private company..no wonder
      these types go into politics.

      Maybe mayor morse would like to experience his own special “brownout” courtesy of Turd Burglestein.

      What a shame. I know Turtleboy wasn’t impressed with his Hokyoke bone ride but the city has a ton of really good people in it. Morse might actually be on the right track with the weed idea. Create a lot of jobs, potentially make the city a lot of money too. Fix up some old abandoned buildings.
      But that fire station obviously needs to be reopened immediately, with all those old buildings? It’s ridiculous.

        Northwest of Rt. 5 is a decent area in Holyoke. Nice houses all long heading north on Rt.5 beyong the mall toward the Mt. Tom ski resort. Even just southeast just in from Rt. 5 in and around the streets named after colleges, i.e., Dartmouth St., Wellesley St., Amherst St., and Stanford Street have decent neighborhoods.

        However head southeast of High Street heading toward an area called ‘the flats’ in and around the North Bridge and you have entered the 413’s version of Main South Worcester. That is where mostly all of the abandoned factories are located along the Connecticut River back when Holyoke was created as an industrious city back in the mid 1800s.

        Plus it’s the birthplace of Volleyball. A little fyi.

        1. BobnMic


          P.S. And yes there are a lot of nice people that live in Holyoke.

        2. Tarbash The Egyptian Magician


          Gee bob. Maybe I was wrong about you. I didn’t know you were a guru of worthless trivia. Your extensive knowledge of volleyball could have come in handy last week at the bar. Nah, who am I kidding.

          SHUT DE FUCK UP YA MORON!!!

          1. BobnMic's Gerbil


            You know what else BobnMic is a guru of? Making gerbil tubes for his butt. I’m telling you this guy is amazing. He’s like the fucking McGyver of gerbil tubes. I’ve seen him make one out of bamboo in the jungle back when he was in Nam. So many good stories I could tell you about that. We should hang out and have a drink some time.

            Today at approximately 1200 hours (noon) EST on the West Steps of the U.S. Capitol was the death of the SJW pussy brigade. Tarbash the Egyptian Magician aka Bartrash the Mongolian Tradition is currently in morning with a very hurt vagina.

            How does it feel Bartrash to not only not have a life or purpose but to specifically spend an enormous amount of time pouring through article after article after article for any comment I post. Like a lurcher stalking and no matter the content or the opinion of the comment, you go way out of your way to Bartrash it.

            Is that a pic of you on your screen name? What next – are you going to divulge your true identity?

            If so don’t bother. I could give two fucks who you are and I’d be willing to bet that no one else does either. But of course I only guess that and cannot speak for all unlike to your imaginary inherited kingdom.

            Ever consider offering something / anything meaningful serious or even in jest? I guess that’s a stupid question as that would entail both intelligence and / or a sense of humor. Ya know – those skills that you do not possess and never will.

      The city council should make bringing this engine back online a requirement of opening these pot growing businesses… if they’re in old buildings, then you’re going to need an increase in fire personnel on hand to handle the possible problems that could arise. He’s only the mayor, not Stalin ffs… the city council has a lot of power in this too
