State Supreme Court Issues Temporary Restraining Order Against Shinnecock Billboards

Yes - leaving would be a great punishment. Imagine how much better the country would be if you all left. o.O Jeez. (insert sarcasm)

While I don't think that is an actual solution - and while I don't think anyone alive today should be punished for what happen years ago - I Do think that people should be more tolerant of each other. The native Americans have a rich history and have a lot to offer but have met with resistance at every turn. Not just here but all over the country.

Voters Approve Parrish Art Museum Budget

@Knitter - Did you vote? The school district is there overseeing the vote. Did you get a postcard? It stated right on there that you could go to the district and vote absentee. The vote is run by the district.
The Parrish is a public entity - not private.

Also - you have to be legal to vote. 18, american citizen - that is just standard across the board.

A lot of places are running their own votes - like the library for example. " Jun 3, 19 8:24 AM

I only know that I saw Amy Pierson (I think that is how you spell her name - she is the district clerk) at the table with other people that I have seen from the district. I am not sure what their names are though. I see them at the school election and the Library one though I think.
But I know the district runs it, not the museum.... the money comes from from the school district and goes towards funding the museum for programs and exhibition that benefit the students in the district. Along with providing membership to those who live in the district. (Like myself - a card carrying resident benefit member). You can get one too if you live / work in the district and it is good for 3 years. " Jun 3, 19 4:08 PM

State Approves Law To Allow Driver's Licenses For Undocumented Immigrants

I went to get my enhanced license - because I won't be able to fly without that or a passport domestically - I had my birth certificate, my social security card, my VALID NY driver's license and a copy of my marriage license. I had bills and bank statements with my name. I was denied because the marriage license was a copy. And now, you don't even have to be citizen to get a license? I am all for open boarders - but his just annoys me to no end. " Jun 19, 19 8:57 AM

Maybe you didn't see my little note that I am all for open boarders - but I don't think I should have been turned away because one document was a copy when all the others were valid and original. It just annoys me is all. " Jun 19, 19 11:17 AM

Maybe open boarders is the wrong term - I simply mean that I am all for legally coming into this country through work visas or proper channels.

@hamptonsway - yes? Of course I file taxes. I am an American Citizen.

Which is why this annoys me so much. I have proof my birth, my New York and Suffolk County residency, my marriage (hence the name change) and because of one small thing - the license being a copy - they turned me away and I had to get the standard license. Now I have to go back at some point and upgrade. Which by the way is like going into the seventh circle of hell. That place is awful. But then I read that undocumented immigrants will be able to just get a license. Just here you go. Yes, I understand it won't be the enhanced and yes I know that it means they will become documented but I can still be annoyed that someone who can trace their heritage to Paiute's was turned away because of a copy.

@fore1 - I don't think I should be forced to get a passport (and wait months by the way for it) - I should have just been able to get the license with the documents I had. Hence the annoyance. " Jun 20, 19 7:59 AM

@Mr. Snerdley - not sure if you are agreeing with me or telling me I should have looked closer. :) I did go through the whole check list and had all the documents and honestly had no idea that the certificate wasn't the original - I have a copy and the original apparently which I only found out when I went home and checked. The original did have the raised seal from the state of Maine so...back I go.

And yes it is frustrating - and I am sure there is a reason for all this, safety and whatever - I just would feel less salty about this if they weren't so sticky on my paperwork. " Jun 20, 19 1:14 PM
