With this statement "if they do leave, they should be heavily financially penalized.", you show your true colors, comrade. What law would give New York state that authority? You wonder why people and companies are leaving our state in droves, it is thinking like yours that is causing it. Make it difficult for a company to do business and they will make the choice.

Chip N Putt:, you have hit it out of the park, pun intended! Why is the county still in the amusement park business? The county has enough problems with doing the things that they are required to now. Sell the property and let someone that actually knows how to run a business continue. If it is profitable, then it will survive. Goes along with Darwin's theory.
No more tax payers dollars!!! We, the taxpayers, can just barely survive the taxes we are paying now. View Comment
The man, George Soros is a dirt bag. He is no better than Joseph Patrick "Joe" Kennedy, Sr. and the way he obtained his wealth. At least Mr. Kennedy was not out to destroy our country. Just ask the English people what they think of Mr. Soros. He almost bankrupted them with his money manipulation. View Comment
The assemblyman is right. It is an attempt to make owing a gun not feasible. It does nothing about the actual problem, criminals. Will they, the criminals, have to carry an insurance policy also when they use a gun? There are laws on the books now if something happens. They are liability laws. I know all you lawyers know that. You can sue almost anyone for almost anything now a days and that includes shooting someone. Just look at the lawsuits that have been filed when someone defends themselves, in their own home ,by shooting the intruder. The criminal sues the home owner. We don't need another law that is really an attack on the second amendment, and make NO mistake that is what it is! View Comment
Please be careful when out walking. Please take careful note of the following. [Geller, 47, was walking north on the northbound side of Route 22 on the roadway’s edge with his back to traffic, police said.]
[Bertram, traveling north as well, was rounding a curve in the roadway when he struck Geller from the rear, police said. ]
When out walking at night please wear some light reflective clothing ot reflective strips.. Too many times I see people out waking after dark dressed all in black or dark clothing. View Comment
@katarina.dirosa: Thank God I live here in America. I certainly don't want a doctor to be determining if I can drive or not. Since when did he become part of the DMV. They have enough problems diagnosing medical problems as it is. You should know when you can't drive anymore . My mother knew and turned in her drivers license . My neighbor did that also several years ago.
I am glad you come from a country that allows doctors to do that. We don't do that here yet but the way it is going in this country, I wouldn't be surprised that it is not written somewhere in the "affordable care act". We still don't know everything that is in there. . View Comment
"In Finland they do so" but this is America. There are more and more "bad" drivers licensed everyday. Have you taken a drivers test recently? How can you tell someones driving competency by a 5 minute driving test? The written test is a joke. If , katarina.dirosa, you want to compare countries then I would look to Germany . The requirements to drive a "lethal weapon" there are much tougher.
Why do I call it a lethal weapon, just remember over 32,000 killed in traffic accidents and with over 311,000 injuries in the year 2011 and that is down 2.5% . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_motor_vehicle_deaths_in_U.S._by_year View Comment
Please take note "Williams was located by the K-9 unit 20 minutes later at the BOCES Pines Bridge campus, the report said". I guess that the K-9 unit does serve a purpose after all. Thanks my furry friends. View Comment
There is always someone that screws up a good thing for others, isn't there? With their actions, they jeopardize the whole K-9 operation. Maybe it is time for them to rethink their actions for the sake on the K-9 unit. View Comment
somersrezzy:, Who wants to kill the President or even our governor? Read the second amendment, please. They were wise men back then in comparison to our elected leaders now in office. They knew the danger of an out of control government. Remember the American revolution? Obviously not. Probably went to the public school system where American history has not be taught for years.

email@example.com:, there were a lot of things that were NOT invented back then. Just WHO had the "legal right" to kill all those people? They didn't have vehicle capable of mass destruction. over 38,000 people killed by vehicles in this country alone. Shall we ban vehicles? How any people are killed in home accidents each year? The list goes on in ways humans are killed each year. View Comment
