Lack Of Federal Funds Could Force Gabreski Air Tower Closure

Hey Chief, you know why there is 2% missing from your paycheck. Because REPUBLICANS insisted on NOT RENEWING the payroll tax cut in budget negotiations. Federal taxes are the lowest they've been in DECADES. "While you were bitching about the guy who bought a Snickers with his food stamps, Exxon pocketed $9000 of your tax dollars."

Cowards like you always attack welfare while letting corporations get away with murder." Feb 25, 13 12:06 PM

some facts for the chief of bs

Debt and Deficit. In the past 17 Presidential terms, nine were GOP led and eight Democratic. Of nine GOP Presidents, six added to debt/GDP and deficit/GDP as a percent. The only three that did not, had a Democratic House and Senate. Of eight Democrats, each one, reduced deficit/GDP and debt/GDP as a percent. That is 66 years of rhetoric of fiscal responsibility with zero net results for GOP. What makes matters even worse, is the fact that the president who added a historical 20.7% to the debt has one unique aspect of his presidency – President G. W. Bush had a GOP majority House and Senate.

Spending. The Republican Party often talks about financial responsibility, but did you know that since 1978-2011, spending has gone up 9.9% under Democrats versus 12.1% under GOP.
Federal Debt. Republicans love to tell us how they will not close tax loopholes on millionaires and billionaires, yet never bring to our attention that from 1978-2011 debt went up 4.2% under Democrats versus 36.4% under the GOP.

GDP. The only thing that the Democrats have a higher numerical yield than the GOP led administrations, is the GDP. It’s a good thing to have it at 12.6% versus a GOP 10.7%. From 1960 to 2005 the gross domestic product measured in year-2000 dollars rose an average of $165 billion a year under Republican presidents and $212 billion a year under Democrats."

Southampton Village ZBA Grants Pyramid Law Variance For Wooley Street Home

Unbelievable! Why do zoning laws even exist in the first place if they are allowed to be broken. This ruling sets a precedence that is not good." Mar 4, 13 4:25 PM

"Why don't you people mind your own business "? So you can comment with your big government teabaggery but others should mind their own business? You are a hypocrite of the worst kind, Chiefie. When you have a piece of land you have the same rights as everyone else! There are zoning codes that are put in place for a reason, so it is OK for this guy to do whatever the hell he wants? Get over yourself and follow your own advice.

Chief, you are a freaking baby!" Mar 29, 13 3:06 PM

"This country is really becoming dumb." And you go out of your way to prove that, Chiefie.

Instead of admitting that he did not read the article, he doubles down on his foolishness. Where in this article do they mention health care? Admit you were wrong, that you used this article. like every other one on this site, to spew you lies and move on.

By the way, every reputable economist on this planet will tell you that undocumented workers are a net POSITIVE to the U.S. Economy.

" Giovanni Peri, an economist at the University of California, Davis, has written a series of influential papers comparing the labor markets in states with high immigration levels to those with low ones. He concluded that undocumented workers do not compete with skilled laborers — instead, they complement them. Economies, as Adam Smith argued in “Wealth of Nations,” work best when workers become specialized and divide up tasks among themselves. Pedro Chan’s ability to take care of routine tasks on a work site allows carpenters and electricians to focus on what they do best. In states with more undocumented immigrants, Peri said, skilled workers made more money and worked more hours; the economy’s productivity grew. From 1990 to 2007, undocumented workers increased legal workers’ pay in complementary jobs by up to 10 percent."

The only people negatively affected are high school drop outs." Apr 1, 13 12:18 PM

Chief, please provide actual, documented proof to any of your claims that does not come from a right wing blog. Just one bit of evidence from a reputable source.

Cheif did not read this article. I doubt he ever reads more than the headline, but, he should be forgiven because that is the MO of extremists - it is OK to be wrong as long as you do it loudly! When he is called out, what does he do? Teaparty tactic number 2 - change the subject. When he is called out again, what does he do? Teaparty tactic number 3, accuse someone else of being a "bully"? Hilarious and oh so predictable, but he is still wrong. " Apr 2, 13 8:30 AM

Chief, "Leave the house once in a while"? Hah, that's rich coming from a man with 580 posts to my 102.

Once again, chief doubles down on his teaprty tactics. He still refuses to admit that the did not read the article (or that he intentionally lied) and then doubles down on another lie re: money per child. He offers absolutely no proof and expects us to simply acccept his false teabaggery.

A quick glance at this board, Chiefie, and it is evident that the only person buying your bs is fellow "patriot" Captain Crunch! Leave your head in the sand because I am sure it would explode if you were to take it out." Apr 3, 13 9:39 AM

You are wrong, Chiefie. You make up "facts" based on your myopic view of a world that you feel has cheated you in some way. Keep trying to change the point, I will keep answering with facts.

CBO: "Immigrants Pay Individual Income, Sales, And Property Taxes." In a December 2007 report detailing the impact of undocumented immigrants on the budgets of local and state governments, the Congressional Budget Office found that "[a]ccording to available estimates," there were about "12 million unauthorized immigrants in the United States" at the time and "those immigrants pay individual income, sales, and property taxes." CBO further reported that "the IRS estimates that about 6 million unauthorized immigrants file individual income tax returns each year. Other researchers estimate that between 50 percent and 75 percent of unauthorized immigrants pay federal, state, and local taxes." [Congressional Budget Office, December 2007]

Immigration Policy Center: "At Least Half Of Unauthorized Immigrants Pay Income Taxes." According to the Immigration Policy Center, undocumented immigrants, "like everyone else in the United States, pay sales taxes. They also pay property taxes -- even if they rent. At least half of unauthorized immigrants pay income taxes." [Immigration Policy Center, 4/18/11]

Even Anti-Immigrant Group Has Acknowledged That Undocumented Immigrants Pay Taxes. In a 2004 study, the anti-immigrant Center for Immigration Studies found that "contrary to the perceptions that illegal aliens don't pay payroll taxes, we estimate that more than half of illegals work 'on the books.' On average, illegal households pay more than $4,200 a year in all forms of federal taxes." [Center for Immigration Studies, August 2004]

NY Times' Brooks: "Over The Course Of Their Lives," Undocumented Immigrants "Pay More In Taxes Than They Receive In Benefits." New York Times columnist David Brooks noted that "over the course of their lives," undocumented immigrants "pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits." He added, "Furthermore, according to the Congressional Budget Office, giving the current illegals a path to citizenship would increase the taxes they pay by $48 billion and increase the cost of public services they use by $23 billion, thereby producing a surplus of $25 billion."

FAA Will Keep Gabreski Airport Control Tower Open

As usual, small-minded patriots are incapable of critical thinking. Firstly, u turn an article about the FAA into a celebration of Thatcherism, and then you turn to abortion without realizing what the story even means.

Instead of encouraging more restrictions on reproductive rights, Hogue said, the Gosnell trial should serve as a warning about the consequences of denying women access to safe and affordable abortion care.

"This is exactly what happens when you place undue restrictions and you try to shame women to keep them from exercising their constitutional right to safe and legal abortions. You make them victims to people like Gosnell, because in their desperation they’ll turn anywhere. You want to drive people like Gosnell out of business? Then you actually support medical facilities and the right of women to safe and legal abortion."" Apr 12, 13 8:11 PM

Hey, bigfool, did you scream "terrorism" when that kid slaughtered 20 children in New Town? Did you scream about religious affiliation after Aurora, Columbine, Oklahoma City, Virginia Tech? Why not? Can terrorism only be carried out by Muslims? The religion of these kids is insignificant. They were disturbed losers who wanted to kill and maim, just like that right-wing "Christian" Timothy McVeigh. You are an ignorant fool, bigfresh. A radical zealot incapable of rational thought. Your reaction is just what the terrorists want. They want to create division, hatred, fear, paranoia among the small-minded. Mission accomplished. " Apr 20, 13 9:47 AM

Ahh, here comes Captn Crunch with the king of witless, moronic, talking point repsonses.

"Firstly, let’s just establish how insanely stupid your argument is. The very definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and commits crime. Criminals break all kinds of laws. They kill, steal, rape, assault, traffic guns or people, drive too fast in the slow lane, drive too slow in the fast lane, don’t register their car on time, under report on their taxes, and the list goes on and on and on. If every time we wanted to write a law to curb and discourage a destructive behavior someone said “But-but, criminals don’t follow laws anyway, so why do we need a law against rape?” you know what we’d have? A society with no laws whatsoever."

Pnow's logic is not broken, you are simply incapable of critical thought because you are blinded by the ideology of studpidity! " Apr 22, 13 1:54 PM

Brillian article from the Guardian

f only Americans reacted the same way to the actual threats that exist in their country. There's something quite fitting and ironic about the fact that the Boston freak-out happened in the same week the Senate blocked consideration of a gun control bill that would have strengthened background checks for potential buyers. Even though this reform is supported by more than 90% of Americans, and even though 56 out of 100 senators voted in favour of it, the Republican minority prevented even a vote from being held on the bill because it would have allegedly violated the second amendment rights of "law-abiding Americans".

So for those of you keeping score at home – locking down an American city: a proper reaction to the threat from one terrorist. A background check to prevent criminals or those with mental illness from purchasing guns: a dastardly attack on civil liberties. All of this would be almost darkly comic if not for the fact that more Americans will die needlessly as a result. Already, more than 30,000 Americans die in gun violence every year (compared to the 17 who died last year in terrorist attacks).

What makes US gun violence so particularly horrifying is how routine and mundane it has become. After the massacre of 20 kindergartners in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, millions of Americans began to take greater notice of the threat from gun violence. Yet since then, the daily carnage that guns produce has continued unabated and often unnoticed.

The same day of the marathon bombing in Boston, 11 Americans were murdered by guns. The pregnant Breshauna Jackson was killed in Dallas, allegedly by her boyfriend. In Richmond, California, James Tucker III was shot and killed while riding his bicycle – assailants unknown. Nigel Hardy, a 13-year-old boy in Palmdale, California, who was being bullied in school, took his own life. He used the gun that his father kept at home. And in Brooklyn, New York, an off-duty police officer used her department-issued Glock 9mm handgun to kill herself, her boyfriend and her one-year old child.

At the same time that investigators were in the midst of a high-profile manhunt for the marathon bombers that ended on Friday evening, 38 more Americans – with little fanfare – died from gun violence. One was a 22-year old resident of Boston. They are a tiny percentage of the 3,531 Americans killed by guns in the past four months – a total that surpasses the number of Americans who died on 9/11 and is one fewer than the number of US soldiers who lost their lives in combat operations in Iraq. Yet, none of this daily violence was considered urgent enough to motivate Congress to impose a mild, commonsense restriction on gun purchasers." Apr 24, 13 10:53 AM

27dan, you have FOX news coming out of your ears! Under George W. Bush there were 30 embassy attacks. That's right, 30 embassy attacks and they resulted in 13 deaths.

Again, 30 embassy attacks resulting in 13 deaths and you know how many hearings they had? Three. 3 lousy hearings.

If you think this Benghazi bs is about anything other than politics, you are incapable of critical thought. " May 9, 13 4:37 PM

Erin, see you joined your male teabaggers in posting complete bs. Firstly, no one is an "abortion advocate"! We are pro-choice advocates. Secondly, learning the difference between "there" and "their" might lend you just a modicum of credibility. " May 9, 13 4:37 PM

Want to know why the teabaggers turn a converstaion about voting discrimination into a rant on Benghazi and abortion?

According to a new Census Bureau report, "In 2012, blacks voted at a higher rate (66.2%) than non-Hispanic whites (64.1%) for the first time since the Census Bureau started publishing voting rates by the eligible citizenship population in 1996." The republicans got less than 6% of the African American vote in 2012.

The largest growing voting population? Hipanics. Dems won 71% of the Hispanic vote in 2012.

So, middle-aged, white simpletons faced with nearly total irrelevancy try to change the subject. Did not work in 2012 - won't work in 2016" May 10, 13 9:01 AM

Sorry, Groom Henge, but you are delusional. Even the right-wing Washington Post disagrees with you.

"A historic turnout by Hispanic voters helped fuel President Obama’s triumph in Tuesday’s election, with exit polls showing a growing share of Latinos casting ballots in a contest that has set off Republican soul-searching and left many Hispanic voters with a greater sense of political voice.

National exit polls showed that 10 percent of the electorate was Hispanic, compared with 9 percent in 2008 and 8 percent in 2004. Those numbers take on more significance when combined with results: Across the nation, 71 percent of Latinos voted for Obama, compared with 27 percent who chose Mitt Romney.

“This is a defining moment for the Republican Party,” said GOP strategist Leslie Sanchez. “If Republicans don’t heed this warning, we are certainly in danger of becoming politically irrelevant at a national level.”

Without the Latino vote, republicans cannot win, even Rick Perry and Marco Rubio know that." May 10, 13 9:50 AM

39 votes to repeal Affirdable Care Act, 9 hearings on Benghazi with no end in sight, blocking all judicial nominees, filibustering every piece of legislation and not one single vote on the Jobs act and you morons blame Obama?!

Last election hundred of teabagging, "patriot" groups applied for not for profit status and huge tax breaks under the guise of educating voters and them spent hundreds of millions on ads attacking the president and you want to know why the IRS targeted these thieves? Hah! Darryl Issa and his moron followers (joe hampton, chief, et al) are a bigger threat to this country's future than any terrorist group could ever hope to be. But, as in 2012, they will lose in the end because, despite their big mouths and rabid extremism, they represent less than 17% of the population of this country " May 13, 13 4:32 PM

Their motivation? Racist hatred of a black president. Period. " May 13, 13 4:33 PM

Of the 41 percent of Republicans who consider Benghazi to be the worst political scandal in American history, 39 percent are unaware that Benghazi is located in Libya. 10 percent said it's in Egypt, 9 percent in Iran, 6 percent in Cuba, 5 percent in Syria, 4 percent in Iraq, and 1 percent each in North Korea and Liberia, with 4 percent unwilling to venture a guess.

In the month before attackers stormed U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed four Americans, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens twice turned down offers of security assistance made by the senior U.S. military official in the region in response to concerns that Stevens had raised in a still secret memorandum, two government officials told McClatchy." May 15, 13 11:22 AM

Obama called it a terrorist attack the following day. The rethugs just rewrite history to suit their narrative. With the release of hundreds of documents by the white house we learned what sane people knew all along about the Benghazi "scandal" and this is that there is not scandal.
