Liz McCusker: "Don't want to brag, but I grew up on the West End"
Liz McCusker set up a Facebook persona called "Jack Hill" specifically to defame me. That has been well established, including by her own admissions under oath.
What has become more interesting to me as I have done research for this book are "Jack Hill's" other claims.
One of the themes that Liz McCusker consistently brought up in her "Jack Hill" persona was that she had grown up in great wealth. A typical example: "[Liz] has class. She was brought up on the West End (not to brag)". [source: Jack Hill Facebook posting]
Well, she shouldn't brag.
Her bragging did lead me to look, in researching this book, for what home her parents may have owned on Portland's West End, and I find nothing in the Registry of Deeds showing that either of her parents actually owned a home there. What I do find is that some relatives owned a house on Gray Street in Portland (not exactly "West End"). So if she and her siblings grew up there, it was in a house that their parents did not own.....her parents NEVER owned a house there subsequent to 1951; so if she wants to claim she grew up in Portland's West End, it was apparently in a house that her parents borrowed from the rest of the family, or rented. At least that is what the public records show.
While this may seem unimportant, it goes to the whole issues with which I as a recipient of Liz's barrages, have had to deal. Elements of class and style are really and truly evident to those of us who grew up post-WW2. If this was not so, then Liz should question why her husband constantly mentions that Matt G., myself, and others "grew up rich". Funny that he never mentions his wife on that.
Here is a typical quote from Liz McCusker (in this case posing as "Jack Hill"):
"Marjorie hasn't learned how to behave...she still acts like a banshees [sic]. hello us [sic] west end girls
have so much more class than you'll ever be able to learn about hahahahahaha we are one and
your [sic] out of the loop.....da" [source: Jack Hill Facebook posting, 11/22/12]
Oh, isn't that classy!
But as I have said to Steve McCusker ad nauseum, "Education is the great equalizer". And anyone can get an education. The baby-boomer generation is famous for this, and Steve McCusker could be the poster-child----he's the first of seven children of a postal worker, and studied hard to go on to get a great education at a premier college.
It's my opinion that instead he lets Liz McCusker drag him down. She's rich you know----and very classy because not to brag, but she grew up on the West End.
