Now the only person in Albany who deserves to keep his job in my option is Governor Paterson. He is the only person sitting that has the ball's to say the State is broke, stop spending and wasting money. But hey those guys and girls who make a 6 figure income and only work what 6 months out of the year, have their finger on the pulse of the people. Can you guess what finger???
Well that is my Bitch of the Day. Until something else pisses me off.

New York Senators
Stop hurting the people who live here. I mean come on, even though it was (or is ) BS the Soda Tax is a joke. I know that by forcing me to drink Diet Pepsi will help me keep my weight down and is better for me, But ooh wait that is right I weight 175 soaking wet. So how the hell is it going to help me. But it is another way for the State to make money. As is they want to hit smokers AGAIN. Now we(they) know that smokers are not going to stop, just because of the price. Yes we lose some due to the price, but us smokers are going to continue and that is what the State wants. So now that people have gone to rolling their own, the State saw that and said hey we have another way to get more money...... Let's face it the State does not increase a tax from 48% to 98% to help people. They want the extra cash. I am just waiting to see a Trooper at the VT border asking to check my car to see what I bought out of State due to it's cheaper.
God it is harder and harder to say " I Love NY" everyday due to the way this state is run.

Well Oddly Fox News Corp. wants to charge Time Warner Cable (TWC) $1 per subscriber for airing its broadcast station, That sounds step....( Really) .
Well guess what on TW website under the FAQ they are asked "Will our rates go up if you come to an agreement?" Their answer is........
"Not necessarily immediately, but programming costs continue to increase every year. And if we meet the demands requested by these networks, they will increase significantly. That is why we are doing everything possible to control programming costs now."
And today they announce that rates are going up buy up to 10%. WTF, you just said rates will not go up unless you pay the rate increase. Well you have not paid it, and yet you are raising my rates by up 14.00 a month.
So should we get TOUGH or ROLLOVER ?????????????????
You tell me.

The $3 million cash infusion is going to an existing academic department, rather than to the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at CCNY, a $30 million project that will immortalize Rangel's name and house his papers when he retires. Rangel had previously arranged $2 million in taxpayer funds for the center.
The latest piece of congressional pork is to fund research into new composite materials that could be used to protect Army trucks from attack. The grant is tucked into the massive Defense Appropriations Bill moving through Congress.
Word of the funding comes as the House is set to vote today on a Republican-backed resolution to strip Rangel of his Ways and Means Committee chair pending an ethics investigation, after revelations that he didn't disclose income on multiple properties, as well as failure to pay taxes and other issues.
The Pentagon doesn't want the research money, but Rangel got the funding anyway by getting the Appropriations Committee to direct the cash to CCNY.

Did Gov. Paterson dole out a six-figure, do-nothing job as a golden parachute for a politically connected bureaucrat — just as the state faced its worst fiscal crisis in a generation?
Let’s hope he did.
Because the alternative — that the governor was actually taking the counsel of Downtown development chief Avi Schick — would be truly frightening.
The Post’s Tom Topousis reported recently that Paterson quietly let Schick keep drawing his $213,000-a-year state salary for eight months after he’d resigned as head of the state’s economic-development agency in January — by hiring him as an “adviser” on Downtown rebuilding.
Schick, a close ally of Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, remains the (unpaid) chairman of the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., where he’s dawdled for years over the deconstruction of the former Deutsche Bank building at Ground Zero.
What kind of advice could Schick possibly have to offer — creative new ways to further stall work?
Most likely, Schick was merely given the adviser post to kill time. He left that job this month mere days before he was hired by a Manhattan law office.
Then again, given Paterson’s recent fecklessness on Ground Zero — notably his inability to mitigate the latest dispute between the Port Authority and developer Larry Silverstein — it wouldn’t be surprising if Schick did have his ear.
Either way, the payout’s outrageous.It’s bad enough to take lousy advice — worse yet to pay for it with
