Glass Mound Proves A Growing Challenge

I'm an avid recycler, and in this area (and most areas) recycling glass makes no sense.

It's very heavy, has limited uses, and requires more energy to transport and process than to make virgin glass.

Burying it is really not a bad option. It's produced from one of the most abundent elements on earth, is completely inert, non-toxic,. and harmless.

Recycle paper, plastic, and metal. Glass might as well go right into the garbage.

If the town could start mixing it into their asphalt, that would be a different story, since you'd at least be saving landfill space.

Better yet, do what a couple of provinces in Canada require, and replace 2 liter soda bottle with one liter, reuseable glass bottles. They have a hefty deposit, and when returned they're washed, relabled, and reused (by the bottler). It's not only more enviornmentally sustainable, but it reduces the amount of garbage strewn around the landscape." Mar 2, 11 12:42 PM

Twenty-Eight Positions Could Be Cut At Eastport South Manor School District

Don't expect an honest debate from someone who equates an elected governer with a murderous tyrant.

Razza can't even come up with a unique libel...just echos of radical left wing blogs.

Luckily, when 27east goes to a pay model, phil, razza, and the rest of the radical leftist cabal here are going to disappear." Mar 4, 11 11:06 AM

Your sarcasm about "conservative values" is spot on. Vulgar and obscene behavior using taxpayers money is certainly a hallmark of liberal values.

Springs Officials Meet With Parents To Explain Cost Cutting Options

Coming from someone who wishes death to people becasue they're "old and white"." Mar 16, 11 12:21 PM

No uncleronk, you can ignore a crackpot. Razza is part of the rising tide of latino nationalism. Like the racist organization La Raza, Razza welcomes illegal immigrants and the price local communities have to pay in higher taxes, crime, and a steady degenration of quality of life in the name of "social justice".

You see, in Raza's mind it's quite simple. White people are ignorant, evil, and stole everything they have from Brown people.

Brown people on the other hand are filled with latino wisdom and tolerance and if they steal government benefits, use hospitals without paying, and they take food off your family's table through higher taxation as a result, that's justice. " Mar 16, 11 12:44 PM


Oh how romantic. Those desperate illegal immigrants, risking everything to come here...blah blah blah. I guess those who come here legally, respecting our laws and waiting there turn in line are fools fo doing so.

You call others deceptive, and here you are suggesting parents have to wait 21 years to benefit from anchor babies. Nonsense. Judges are extremely unlikely to deport illegal immigrant parents with a child who is a citizen, and the illegal immigrant community well knows this.

progressnow must smile every time there news about another drunk, unlicensed, uninsured illegal killing an innocent citizen and fleeing back across the border.

....or the illegal immigrant MS13 gang member who executed a mother and child last year.

...or the billions given out in welfare to illegals that could be used to help the poor we already have.

...or the destruction of middle class construction jobs by illegals working without paying taxes, for less than legal, unionized workers.

I don't even need to elaborate on the obvious contradictions in your so called "progressive" values. Driving down wages, taking low skilled jobs from legal workers during a period of high unemployment, sucking away human capital from underdeveloped countries, and providing a relief valve for corrupt governments to ship off their poor rather than improving living conditions.

Thankfully, the vast majority of Americans see through your euphemisms, doubletalk, and code words. They know what you and your ilk call "comprehensive immigration reform" is just a foundation for blanket amnesty, and promises of enforcement measures will not be fulfilled.

No nation can stand without control over it's borders, and that's really the appeal of illegal immigration to leftists. They couch the issue in emotional rhetoric (and throw out the customary racism charges) but ultimately if it harms "evil" America, that's enough reason for them to support it.

Springs Superintendent Responds To Teacher Layoff Rumors

Wow, you really are a colossal cut and paste liar. This is a typical moveON, thinkprogress tactic. Enrage their base with "shocking" statistics knowing most won't bother to scratch beneath the surface.

First of all, here's a link and excerpts from the original article, not the false one Mrs. Z linked to. Interestingly, the article she did link to shows that 47% of households pay NO federal income tax at all. In fact, many of these zero-tax liability households get refundable tax credits, meaning they recieve federal benefits while contributing NOTHING. Woohoo, free money for Obama's base!

Apparently, Mrs.Z doesn't think 45%+ tax rates are enough for these corporations, who employ hundreds of thousands of people (who pay taxes). Lets just drive them to another country or better yet, lets put them out of business!


Bank of America: "Because the company lost money, it owed no taxes."

Exxon: "That said, Uncle Sam gets his money in other ways. Including sales taxes and duties, Exxon recorded $7.7 billion in U.S. tax costs last year, and paid even more overseas." "The company's effective income tax rate was a hefty 47%, its highest in three years."

Chevron: "Some businesses save money on taxes by logging their biggest profits in low-tax countries. But like Exxon, Chevron has little choice about where it can extract oil. Thanks to the billions it sends overseas, Chevron faced an effective income tax rate of 43% last year. "

General Electric: "General Electric didn't have to pay the IRS a dime of income tax in 2009. That's because the company's financial services division lost a boatload of money, giving GE a tax break it used to offset income from its other business lines."

Amazing how differently things look in context, eh, Mrs Z?

illion. The company's effective income tax rate was a hefty 47%, its highest in three years.

The teachers unions have ONE purpose, and that is to protect and enrich their members. That's not the problem (though they'll never be honest about that, "oh no, we're here for the children!!.).

Unlike a private sector union, there isn't a negotiator on the other side representing the people who foot the bill. " Mar 17, 11 6:49 PM

One excellent thing about 27East going to a pay model is that freeloaders like Razza can't spew more than 2 comments a day.

Southampton Town Zoning Board Again Delays Decision On 7-Eleven

The employers are just as guilty of creating this illegal immigration problem as anyone else.

It's more efficient to go after the employers first. Many illegals will self deport once the contractors realize paying $5 more an hour will being plenty of legal workers and beats the hell out of a jail cell.

By the way, it IS the responsibility of employers to only employee legal residents, by law." Mar 21, 11 4:14 PM

Stella Maris School Facing Large Deficit, In Danger Of Closing

What do you care? It's not your money

Unlike public schools, this one doesn't have the ability to extract money by(what is ultimately) the point of a gun." Apr 18, 11 8:09 PM

If you don't, or can't pay your property taxes your home will ultimately be confiscated, by force if necessary.

There is nothing rhetorical about taxes ultimately being collected at the point of a gun. What do you think the authorities will do if you refuse to hand over your property voluntarily?

By the way, when school taxes can rise 10% in a single year even if the citizens vote down a budget, just how much representation do voters actually have in the process?

And finally, someone forgot to send you the memo that Giffords was not shot by someone "influenced by violent rhetoric", but by someone who was clearly insane with no particular political motive. " Apr 19, 11 9:20 AM

An excellent point. Catholic schools usually have a waiting list, one wonders why this school is different." Apr 20, 11 1:52 PM

You really can't lump Catholic schools in with other private schools

Catholic Schools have long provided excellent value for the tuition, and significantly reduce or waive the tuition all together for low income families regardless of their religion. We're talking a few hundred a month for elementary schools.

I'd say the risk from deviant priests is far, far lower than the very real violence and anti-education enviornment present in many public schools." Apr 20, 11 8:00 PM

In this case, it's not paperwork for paperwork's sake.

$43 Million Tear-Down Approved In Sagaponack

Between sales taxes on materials and services, transfer & land preservation taxes on the original purchase, and permitting fees, this guy has easily pumped $5,000,000 in tax revenue into the system.

Tea Party Holds Third Annual Tax Day Protest In East Hampton

Spare us your righteous indignation fcmcmann. It's galliing to see the very people who spent the last 8 years comparing our troops to Nazi's and beating their chests in anguish over the civil rights of Kalid Sheik Mohammed, "illegal" and "immoral" drone attacks, suddenly embracing targeted killing.

If Obama "inherited" every problem faced by the country then he also inherited the intelligence and military capabilites left to him by the previous administration.

It's people on your side of the political fence that burn American flags, coddle terrorists, and welcome illegal immigrant invaders.

Oh, I see.

If you care so deeply about granting civil rights and the due process of law being extended to our enemies, why are you condoning the violation of Pakistan's sovereignity and the assasination of OBL?

Good. Now why are you making an exception to your demands for civil rights and due process when it comes to OBL? " May 2, 11 10:14 PM

Wow, so that's it huh? With OBL gone, there is no threat from Islamic terrorism? It's all just fear mongering.

The next time one of Obama's drone's kills a few dozen people in Pakistan, I guess he's just a murderer doing the Republican fear mongerer's work for them eh?

By your logic, dropping a bomb on the compound would have been murder then, right? Just like all those drone attacks...

Yeah, now you have "faith" in our justice system, which your side characterized as rigged and racist.

Face it, you and OBL have at least one thing in common, you both see America as an evil empire." May 2, 11 10:34 PM

I love how Razza is such a big fan of targeted assasination now :)

Are there any other brown people not entitled to due process Razza, or was the extrajudicial execution of this particular unarmed person a one time exception?" May 3, 11 6:35 PM

Oh, I see, you're part of the "to hell with human rights" liberal coalition.

How convienient in light of current events. You're not alone though. Apparently all it takes for the bloodthirsty side of leftists to come out is to have a president with a (D) after his name do the killing.

...and to think it seems like only yesterday you guys demanded miranda rights be read to enemy combatants on the battlefield." May 3, 11 6:54 PM

Orders from the administration were to kill OBL, is that ok with you phil?

Even as the administration spins, revises, and "corrects" their story liberals like phil will change their own position align with whatever Obama does.

"The authorities we have on Bin Laden are to kill him. And that was made clear. But it was also, as part of their rules of engagement, if he suddenly put up his hands and offered to be captured, then-- they would have the opportunity, obviously, to capture him. But that opportunity never developed," CIA director Leon Panetta told NBC News.

Unarmed and hands down=execution
Unarmed, hands up, verbally offer to be captured=capture(does anyone actually believe this?)

That's a lie. I thought you only dealt in facts, phil? (like Osama being armed and using his wife as a human shield - you know, the propoganda phil was so eager to spread).
