Mildred, it is your memory that has failed. I was writing about her demeanor as the town supervisor. Yorktown is safe, why? It is even more dysfunctional that ever with her and Mr. Patel in control of the town board. View Comment
It seems that nobody in Yorktown that runs for office, has any allegiance to their party. When was the last time you saw a handout with a party affiliation on it? The politicians here in Yorktown change parties like you change your underwear. Maybe "Yorktown Voter" you might run for the position but I don't think you will. You would actually have to use your real name. View Comment
Not only will the "safe act" as it is called not made people safe but has actually hurt the law biding citizen. It has made the purchase of a gun by law biding citizens even harder. Do you really think that criminals actually follow the law? They don't and that is why they are called criminals.
The " safe act' is no more of a crime deterrent than the " Affordable Care Act " is affordable or caring. View Comment
leonard.martello:The endorsement by both the the Journal News and The New York Times should tell you some thing. Didn't they back Obama also? Sean Patrick Maloney is just one more of the yes men for the Obama administration and its policies. Just where does he stand on the ACA?
The " crazies" as you call them are the ones that want lower taxes and the repeal of the ACA. Call them crazy but maybe they are right and the tax and spend democrats are wrong. The estimated population of the United States is 319,324,947
so each citizen's share of this debt is $56,114.00. That is for every man, women and child. Just how o long can our county survive with this debt. The very sad part is that it is increasing each and every day. It is time for a change and not like the one we got with the election of President Obama. http://www.usdebtclock.org/
Change starts with electing people that want to lower taxes and make our country really energy independent. Sean Patrick Maloney will only continue to rubber stamp the Obama policies if he is re-elected. View Comment
The article fails to mention the speed of the motorcycle. He was doing over 100 MPH according to my source. Also NOT mentioned was the fact that he was a Dominican, a convicted felon, had a rap sheet a mile long and was driving with a suspended license.
You can also add this to the mix, At this point, not sure if the SP were in pursuit but a Trooper said he blew by him during a traffic stop.
This is what you get when you take money from the federal Government. There are always strings attached. The program is a plan from the progressive left muck like the Progressive Education System of the late 50's. A failure to a whole generation of our youth. Touchy , feely stuff with no substance. Bring back the basics, the three R's. View Comment
He has been a terrific congressman? I think you mean horrific don't you? He is marching in lock step with the President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. In six years the democratic party has done nothing to improve our economy. Talking about the EPA, just look at what they have done to the coal industry. Coal which supplies almost 47% of our electricity is being decimated by onerous regulations. The results are increased electricity rates. The President said he expects this to happen as a result of his policies on coal and even welcomes it in order to push his wind and solar power schemes.I use the word schemes because of Solindra and other failures similar to it.
We do not need more people with like thinking in congress. Look at Congressman Maloneys voting record. 95% support of the Presidents failed policies. Have those policies made things better? Over 65% of the people polled say no. View Comment
The question is did congresswomen Lowey actually " rebuilding our infrastructure, creating jobs, lowering taxes, and ensuring the Hudson Valley continues". She and Hillary promised these things for years. Do you see things getting better in New York State? Promises made and NOT kept!! More of the same if these two get elected, promises!
She walks in lock step with him and his administration. I was please that " "I am pleased that this coalition was formed," . A coalition of who, do do what?
"I expect that those countries in the region must be obligated to put their troops on the ground.", really? Name some of the coalition that is doing just that? This is probably the best statement "Lowey said American troops should not be on the ground fighting in the Middle East" Where was her objection when her President sent more troops into Afghanistan and said it was the war we should be fighting instead of Iraq ? She is a phony.
On election day I will be voting for a real American that will look out for OUR country, Chis Day. View Comment
George, I would suggest if t you don't like the way our constitution was written you should move to maybe Iraq or Iran for a while and see what it is like living without freedom. If you don't want to have the means to defend yourself and your family then so be it. Please don't try to take my right to do so. Gun control to many in the movement is to take away that right. They want no one to have a gun but the police or the military. Sounds like 1934 in Germany to me. View Comment
"common sense gun safety laws like New York’s newly-strengthened background check system and ban on military-style assault weapons"? When was the last time an " assault" weapon was used in a crime in New York state? By the way, just what is an assault weapon? Is it a scary looking rifle? Gun violence is a straw dog for taking away guns from the law biding citizen. Gun violence has gone down in America while gun possession by law biding citizens has sky rocketed. FBI stats prove that out.
The common sense law they refer to is NOT common sense and takes the guns out of the hands of lawful citizens. It does not do anything to keep the guns from criminals. They don't buy their guns legally. Mr Wagner like his pal Chuck Schumer tl ell us all the time they don't want to take our guns away. Don't believe them. That is their long term intent. Just when the world is getting more dangerous, they want to disarm us. Look at what is happening in our own country. People being beheaded. How will you defend yourself from a terrorists that wants to kill you because you don't want to convert? Sounds far fetched right? Stop looking at ET the other entertainment shows,and see the real world. View Comment
The war was won in Iraq. The country was in control of the elected officials there. The President did NOT listen to the people that had won that war, the military. He was in too much of a hurry to fight the war he said we should have been fighting. The a war in Afghanistan so without listening to his military he pulls the troops out knowing full well they were still needed there as a deterrent. It was a political decision as are most of his decisions. Never listens to the people he should but listens to Valerie Jarrett. We are in the mess we are in NOT because of GWB but because of the political decisions of Barrack Obama. It is about time he takes responsibility for HIS actions. View Comment
Ann, check your facts on gun violence by law biding citizens. http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/gun-control-myths-realities
From your post I gather you are one of those bleeding heart liberals that think that tax payers should foot the bill for open spaces. It seems that people that are well off expect others who may not be that well off to fund farms that don't make a profit much like the Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown. Just what is the county doing running a farm? Why is it being funded when there are two private farms fighting for their existence in Yorktown? View Comment
