Its obvious congress didn't need to approve the $60 billion for reconstruction. Lots of waste included in there, especially all these BS ads that continue to run 2 years later. Time to move on.
I suppose no expense is worth cutting to you? God forbid we spend less on something.
Maloney's going down, get used to it. His own poll shows him getting less than 50%. Hillary and Bill can do all the stumping they want but it isn't going to help. View Comment
I caught one of these rockets launching a year or two ago and it was awesome. Sorry I missed last nights explosion, that would have been equally awesome. Not sure how far that could be seen but I'm sure it was on the launch pad webcam. View Comment
Well, not really if unemployment goes up because companies go out of business due to the higher min. wage, then there will a much higher demand for social services.
Remember, min. wage isn't supposed to be a living wage but rather a starting point not meant to sustain a family. View Comment
Latimer's just out of step with reality.
On Common Core Latimer wants to reform not repeal the program, but I'm not sure how something so broken can be fixed.
And let's not forget Latimer's also running on the Working Families Party is almost a socialist party but he embraces it.
And don't forget every time New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson wants a new tax or fee, he goes straight to his friend Senator George Latimer who he knows will unconditionally support it.
Joe D. on the other hand won't support any of these things and we sure could use a senator like that. Vote Dillon!
Swell and I feel for the people in that neighborhood.
What is the process was at the State level?
Was this another underhanded slight on New Rochelle by Senator George Latimer?
Bramson's just worthless, but I bet he stays under that tax cap this year with all his Red Light Camera money.
BTW, big thanks to Senator Latimer for getting the Red Light Camera law pushed through legislature. We all needed that like a hole in the head. View Comment
Not Washington for sure and that's where Common Core comes from.
Cuomo and his lap dog Wagner want to somehow reform it when it would be better to just throw it out.
Murphy's spot on with this topic. View Comment
Cuomo's dangling the carrots already?
New Rochelle spends enough already on its students, why throw more borrowed money at it?
If NY doesn't have the money, then don't buy it. And will any of the technology/gadgets be with us towards the end of the loan? Doubtful. View Comment
Weren't these the same legislators that pushed the casinos as the cure-all for NYs problems? And now they don't want them?
For any casino to thrive, it'll have to be close to NYC. NJs planning on putting new casinos at the Meadowlands because many are closing in Atlantic City.
Why would anyone travel to the Catskills when they can hop on a bus or train to the Meadowlands?
I really hope NY doesn't have to bail out these casinos in 20 years.
Why don't our legislators lower taxes and bring in some manufacturing business back into NY? Right now our taxes are so high the only companies moving here are getting big big tax breaks.
Cuomo's got to go. ABC. Lets vote Rob Astorino in November, I've had enough of this BS. And while your at the booth, vote for a Republican Senator like Joe Dillon. You'll be glad you did. View Comment
What's the half life of these bags? I bet it takes 50 years for 1 to completely biodegrade. Yes its recyclable, but at what cost? Leaves turn to dirt in 2-3 years. Last year very few of these bags were used and now we're talking about homeowners using thousands of them. I don't see how that's common sense at all.
Mulch mowing is a joke and won't work for most and who's got the space? View Comment
Wagner will be just another yes vote for Late Term Abortion, do we really what that here in NY?
Those are the abortions when the baby cries.
And while we're at it, do you really want NYC to control all 3 branches of state government?
If Yes then you want the Senate to be controlled by Democrats so you should vote for Wagner.
If No, then vote for Murphy. He won't side with them at all. View Comment
Can Mayor Noam Bramson tell us how using thousands of paper bags to dispose of our leaves is Environmentally friendly?
That's just a plain lie and he knows it.
And don't forget who Noam Bramson goes to when he wants to create a new tax or fee like the recent Red Light Camera program, that's right Senator George Latimer that's who.
If we elect Joe Dillon that's going to end, but if we re-elect Senator Latimer expect more taxes and fees to come to a city, town or village near you. View Comment
So we can end the debate and say that Senator George Latimer does support legalizing Late Term Abortion?
But why won't he talk or embrace that fact? He sounds like he wants to hide from the question. What kind of a leader does that?
But thanks for the clarification. View Comment
So what does that say about Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano's endorsement of Senator Latimer? If I use your logic, then both Spano and Latimer are corrupt, is that what you're saying?
And thanks for insulting the residents of the 37th, but I'm sure you know everything and are right 100% of the time.
Latimer's politics would legalize Late Term Abortion in NY. I watched the debate and he didn't deny that fact and he completely danced around the question.
Is he embarrassed by his position on Late Term Abortion? Why does he think NY needs to expand Abortion?
But don't expect to get a straight answer because you won't get it. View Comment
Nothing like having the resident troll/nutbag cheering on Senator George Latimer.
But you have to ask yourself, do I want to be associated with people like this? Why should I vote for George Latimer if this is his base?
I'm going to say NO as should you and throw my support behind Joe D.
It doesn't get any better than this and you certainly can't make this stuff up.
