Something tells me it was loner who learned a new word today.

You know blues, the truly rich pay very little in taxes, because their unearned money is protected by law. People who work and have earned income pay the bills, whether they are janitors or neurosurgeons.

NYC has a lot of highly paid professionals who pay taxes, and billionaires who don't. I only have issues with the latter.

formerlylone said, "Molly coddling criminals doesn't work."

Actually, it does. Sending them to prison for decades merely assures that they will be professional criminals and misfits when we finally let them loose ... which is the case 99% of the time.

If you want to make all crime punished by life in prison, plan on building, and paying for, a lot more prisons. Actually, keeping someone in prison is pretty expensive too.

Jim Walker, You lucky Duck you, Our state Govt. is no more than a train wreck (like all the obamic polosi's [policies]) Our billion$ are pretty much spent on clean up jobs (ie. the messes the stooges produced last year).

I do Commend Mr walker for getting out of NY. I just can't believe that people out there still want to think the Tea Party is a grass roots movement by ordinary taxpayers to fight against high taxes. From the earliest days the TeaParty has been funded and controlled by the Koch brothers Billionaire Libertarian empire. They are not just aginst high taxes they are for abolishing the entire Government including Social Security,Medicare insurance,The VA healthcare network,SEC,etc including all regulations to protect the common folk from people like them.8 years of this crazy ideology during the Monkey Boy years destroyed the entire world economy. Did we learn anything?

I'm planning on relocating to one of the southern states on the Atlantic Seaboard within 2 years. 1. I'm fifty something and after spending many years in warmer climates I find the winters up here much less refreshing than when I was younger 2. We really do live in an economically depressed area here in South western NY and with it, it's seemingly disproportionate share of criminal activity.

Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson come to mind. These 2 will call anyone a racist if it can make their wallets bigger.

So like I said seadog wouldn't the 24 year white old man (a student teacher no less)who raped two 15 year girls be called a savage too. You only used the term to describe two black men. Answer my question don't just throw out your usual BS.

I couldn't agree with you more Monkeyboy. Reading seadog's posts I can tell he will only be happy in an all-white enclave where he'll feel safe. I noticed seadog you have had nothing to say about the white 24 year old who raped two 15 year olds. Couldn't he be called a "savage" too.

We will miss you Jim. Many of us will follow, especially if we do not win a conservative majority in the Senate. Keep blogging. We still need your courage. Good luck and God bless.
