Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Razza, be careful, your ignorance is showing. " Nov 11, 09 3:55 PM

Parties eye vacant Southampton Town Board seat in 2010

Referring to a legitimate, highly qualified candidate as "the Fleming woman" is typical of the type of misogynistic rhetoric we've come to expect from Republicans. I guess Linda Kabot was the type of "woman" you could get behind simply because she was a Republican." Nov 11, 09 7:24 PM

Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Got news for you, kpjc, not only is the 30 percent profit number not made up, it may actually be conservative. But don't worry, no one wants to stop you from giving your money to a private insurance company whose CEO makes more in an hour than you do in a year. We should be free to choose a public option just as you are free to continue taking it up the _____. " Nov 11, 09 7:30 PM

By the way, the last part of my comment refers not to your sexuality, but to what the insurance companies are doing to you." Nov 11, 09 7:31 PM

You are completely beyond enlightenment. Sorry." Nov 12, 09 9:16 AM

Bishop's burn pit legislation signed into law

The surge "worked"? Oh yeah, that's right, it ended the war in - oops, maybe not." Nov 12, 09 9:17 AM

Allow me:

1. You are making false assumption - this is not a question, but a rhetorical accusation.
2. You are making false assumption - this is not a question, but a rhetorical accusation.
3. No. Covering pre-existing conditions brings down costs because people are not forced to either go to the emergency room or die. Would you rather they die than have their condition covered? Sounds like you would.
4. Tort reform will NOT lower premiums. Study after study shows it will have no effect and that it is nothing more than a tea bagger talking point.
5. Medicare and the Veterans Administration already operate at 30% lower costs than private insurance. The insurance industry's 2.2% profit equates to billions of dollars and does NOT include the billions paid to CEO's and administrators or the $1.5 million dollars a day paid to lobbyists.
6. Your inane comments speak for themselves." Nov 12, 09 3:00 PM

New tax credits for homeowners

Ah, the teabagger has returned! Dear Mr. Talking Points, most economists will tell you that the tax credits have given the housing market the shot in the arm it needs. You are considering running for public office yet I have yet to hear an actual idea from you on these boards. Instead, you tow the party line and complain and moan about socialism and Nancy Pelosi. If candidates like you are the best we can do, then we are irreversibly screwed." Nov 12, 09 3:40 PM

KPJC, just because you say something loudly and scream and yell and stomp your feet does not make you correct. You really do yourself and your fellow neocons a disservice with this kind of puerile nonsense. " Nov 12, 09 7:31 PM

Baloney. " Nov 13, 09 1:52 PM

Baloney, razza. You don't expect anyone's opinion and it is ludicrous of you to even attempt to say so given the nature of the majority of your arrogant comments." Nov 13, 09 1:53 PM

Town code enforcement again raids Westhampton home owned by Kabot's aunt

She's guilty and she is Kabot's Aunt, who gives a _______ if it is by marriage or not. " Nov 14, 09 11:08 AM

HAH! This from the person who claims he respects everyone's opinion! " Nov 14, 09 11:10 AM

Can you please explain in detail what tax you are going to have to pay from day one? You are talking out of your - well, let's just say talking points. Seriously, I challenge you to provide exacting proof of your assertion that you are going to be taxed to pay for health care. Show me the line from the legislation in either the house or the senate and explain exactly how it pertains to your specific situation.

In the meantime, you fret over the tyranny of government power but have absolutely no problem with the absolute power of corporate America?

I eagerly await your detailed tax explanation." Nov 14, 09 4:15 PM

I love how you pull "facts" out of the deepest recesses of your mind and present them as gospel. Magnificent. Truly. If we could all so thoroughly delude ourselves we would never have a care" Nov 14, 09 4:17 PM

OK, Razz, same challenge to you - Can you please explain in detail what tax you are going to have to pay from day one? I challenge you to provide exacting proof of your assertion that YOU are going to be taxed to pay for health care. Show me the line from the legislation in either the house or the senate and explain exactly how it pertains to your specific situation.

By the way, I pay for my own insurance, and I pay a hell of a lot - out of my OWN pocket. " Nov 14, 09 4:41 PM

The US post office delivers millions of pieces of mail each day. Medicare, despite problems cause by corruption, operates at rates 30% below private insurance. And since you think that social security is such a mess, why not simply refuse to accept it. Same with medicare. " Nov 14, 09 4:43 PM

Town code enforcement again raids Westhampton home owned by Kabot's aunt

I do not often agree with Frank Wheeler, especially when it comes to Kabot, but your insinuations are pointless and out of line, PrviateerMatt" Nov 15, 09 11:12 AM

The point is that if you report this story (which I believe would and should happen regardless of those involved) and you neglect to mention the connection between the perp and Linda Kabot, then you are not being honest in your reporting. It is a significant fact, but should not be used to disparage Linda." Nov 15, 09 11:15 AM

From Stalin to Nixon." Nov 15, 09 11:15 AM

Bishop visits first-time homebuyers helped by tax credit

What the heck is wrong with you, Blumenthal. This young couple is celebrating the good fortune of being able to buy a home in one of the most expenses places in America and OF COURSE the $8,000.00 helped!

People like you take every opportunity to criticize and stomp your feet, but they got a house and I for one am extremely happy for them." Nov 19, 09 3:35 PM

Hear, hear!" Nov 19, 09 3:36 PM

Trespassing charges dropped against East Quogue woman arrested near ANG base; wrongful arrest lawsuits filed

Hardly dangerous - until you put the bullets in the gun. " Nov 19, 09 6:59 PM

One more thing, I wonder what you would say if the police had arrested a united states citizen with a car full of weapons and ammo who just happened to be black. Or Muslim. Or a black Muslim. I don't think you'd be spouting on about 2nd amendment rights. " Nov 19, 09 7:02 PM

Aahh, you can always count on Frank to come in and change the discussion from issues to personal attacks. This woman was carrying around an armory in her car and I thank God the police did not just look at her license and say, "Ok, you're free to go." And I think the other poster hit the nail on the head - none of you would be protecting her rights if she had an Arab name and dark skin. " Nov 20, 09 10:01 AM

I am with you, pstevens. She could have started a war with what was in that car! " Nov 20, 09 10:02 AM

Gee, Frank, a little sensitive? " Nov 23, 09 12:54 PM

Ms. Genovese, can you at least admit to having used poor judgment?" Nov 23, 09 12:55 PM

Kabot attorney will represent two suspended Westhampton Beach Police officers

There's Mr. Wheeler again with nothing to contribute but personal insults. Grow up, Frankie." Nov 23, 09 12:59 PM

If anyone knows Frank call an ambulance, I think his head just exploded! " Nov 23, 09 1:26 PM

Supreme Court lifts injunction on use of Aldrich Park

You are, of course, correct Jane Q. Not everyone at 7-11 is "illegal". As a matter of fact, many of them are not citizens but still carry tax payer ID cards because they know if they want to become citizens one day, they have to pay taxes.

What angers me most is the very same people that want to blame everything on immigrants are the same people who stand up for corporate America and big business who are robbing them blind every day. You cannot talk to these people about immigration, they are simply too bull-headed. I do, however, find comfort that there are some people out there like yourself who choose to embrace human decency instead of hatred and fear. Thanks." Nov 24, 09 4:51 PM

I did not say visas I said "Tax payer ID's" You are filled with such vile hate and prejudice, INS. To refer to humans as "these people" and to try and generalize all of them as thieves and forgers is really disgusting and NOT what this country is about. I notice you like to talk about the constitution, but do you have any idea of the real principals upon which this country was founded? You don't know what it means to be an American. Undocumented workers contribute more than they cost. That has been proven over and over again. I am just as proud to be an American as anyone else, but this country was not built on hatred and bigotry. By the way, I cut my own lawn too." Nov 24, 09 7:26 PM

INS, please stop accusing people of lying or misrepresenting the facts. The following is from a wonderful article in NewsDay. You could learn much by reading it.

"immigrants are crucial to the New York economy. First-generation immigrants - documented and undocumented combined - are responsible for 22 percent of the gross domestic product in New York State, slightly higher than their 21 percent share of the state population.

Let’s get real about addressing the issues, rather than fanning the flames of intolerance. New York is already in a downturn, and a recession is no time to throw a damp rag on nearly a quarter of the economy.

A real solution would have three parts.

One: Raise the wages and improve working conditions in low-wage jobs, expanding opportunities for both immigrants and Americans who are citizens by birth.

Two: Create an earned path to citizenship, so that undocumented immigrants who are here today can move out of the unregulated economy and into regular jobs.

Three: Revise our immigration so there’s more opportunity to come to this country legally and less pressure for people to find unauthorized ways in."

I agree that it takes courage to try and resolve an in issue in a humane, tolerant, and successful manner and that a hallmark of hate and bigotry is cowardice." Nov 25, 09 10:36 AM

Where do some of you get the energy to fuel such hatred and ignorance. I am constantly astounded by this race to the bottom. You have a right to believe and feel a certain way but how about doing something positive to help instead of spouting such vile and ignorant nonsense. And at the holiday season no less? If you are miserable go out and find a way to turn your life around instead of trying to place the blame on someone else. " Nov 25, 09 10:41 AM

When was the last time that one of these day laborers attacked someone at the 7-11? Why is it not safe for your daughter to go there? You of course have every right to try and protect her, but do not invent a danger that does not exist. " Nov 25, 09 10:43 AM

Trespassing charges dropped against East Quogue woman arrested near ANG base; wrongful arrest lawsuits filed

Nancy, my advise to you would be the same as bigheadsize, but I would encourage you to stop posting for different reasons. Your posts only serve to confirm what some have believed from the beginning and that is that you were not held because you had guns and ammo, but because your ideology combined with guns and ammo were perceived as a dangerous combination. " Dec 1, 09 12:41 PM

Ah, INS, your rhetorical brilliance really shines through. " Dec 2, 09 12:52 PM
