Please just shut the state down.

I am glad to see that the Dem's are showing their true color. It's about time everybody see the yellow streak running down their back. How can one group rule over the whole state and can not even get one thing done. They are all waiting so they can say" I had no chose, I had to do it". Now people you understand why the Democrats have been ruining this state. Time to kick them all out and start over.

STFU Michael Steele

Michael Steele , you have to be one of the dumbest people on the planet.  I hate admitting I am a Republican when people like you are in charge.  You lambaste the President for playing a round of golf and watching a baseball game.  Plus give him crap for see Paul McCarthy, really don't you have more important things to worry about.  Lets see you say he should be working harder on the BP problem.  Well it was you and your cronies that help create this problem.  So should the problem be put on your shoulder to fix.  And how can just one man fix the problem when everything he does you are going to shoot down and or hold up by fighting it in Congress.  I would also like to see what you have done in your personal time since this has happened.  I hope you did not go out for anything other then to fix our Health Care and our Trillion Dollar deficit.

So again Michael Steele STFU, and get back to work.

Smoke up NY.....

As you know the great State of NY still does not have a budget.  I find it funny that our state and the Federal Government are both in the same position.  Both are run by a Democratic leadership, both have both houses run by democrats.  And both can not get a thing passed.   But lucky for us New Yorkers we still have a tax and spend government running us into the ground.  Lets see Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver ( is the top dog that is biting all of us.  We have new taxes ( what is new), but come on Cigarettes AGAIN........   Lets see, they tell us it to cover health costs, but yet they cut health benefits every year.  So lets see by adding another $1.60 to every pack to bring just the tax to $4.35.  Yes that is over 50% of the cost is taxes. But hey we still have the Indian reservations.  OOH wait, no we don't they are going after them also to pay the tax on smokes.  And they want to raise the tax on other tobacco products — like cigars, chewing tobacco and pipe tobacco — will increase from 46 percent to 75 percent. Now lets not forget the payroll tax they want.  So where is all this money going.  Well lets see the Democrats who say they are the protectors of the working people are giving the money to the people that are NOT working.  Now I understand the need for it for some people.  But we all know the abuse in the system.  So lets throw good money after bad. 

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.

Wake up NY........

OK, lets see it has been over 70 days and our budget is still not done.  Yet our Politicians still have time to sit down and act like school kids fighting over who is at fault.   If they have to time and sit a throw blame they have time to work out our budget.  It's odd how the Democrats have the NY Senate vote's but yet they still can not get anything passed.  I know this is going to sound bad, but I really, really do want to the State to shut down.  Then finally the people of NY will open their eye's and show the people who say they have our best interest that they need to go.  This State is a Tax and Spend State and it will not change until someone like the Governor finally says you have to make cuts. I find it funny that the people that make our laws and what and how much things are going to cost never say" Hey I know it will hurt, I feel it also".  I mean if you are making a 6 figure salary and all the perks from the State these thing will not affect you.  But us blue collar and working class slobs who live pay check to pay check will suffer the most.  And I feel real bad for those that have to work two jobs just to get by.

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.

RollOver or get Tough????

Time Warner has been airing ads complaining that Fox wants to raise their rates up to 300%. this is where you can see that that say it.

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.

Rangel rangeling again.

Two years after creating a center in his own name at City College, Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel has come through with a $3 million defense grant for the school -- for a project the Pentagon doesn't even want, The Post has learned.

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.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver still leads NY down hill.

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
