Jeff - Article I-Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution specifically permits states to enterRead More interstate compacts. In fact, there are hundreds of major compacts currently in force (and thousands of minor ones). You might be familiar with the Multi-State Lottery Compact (which operates the Powerball lotto game in numerous states)

The Electoral College has been outmoded since the invention of the telegraph and is in directRead More contravention of the one person, one vote concept that should epitomize any democratically run system. As for Mr. Bundy in Nevada , what is his beef ? The bum has not paid his rent in twenty years and should expect to be run off that property like any other squatter. Claims that he is being deprived of some imagined freedom are sheer nonsense. The man is a deadbeat plain and simple and owes in excess of $100,000, 000 for leased land.

With the new voting scam, if Jack ran for president and got zero popular votes in NY, but got mostRead More of the popular votes nationwide, Jack would get ALL of NY's electoral votes, without receiving a single vote in NY. What version of "one man one vote" is that? Bundy? The Federal government should know a dead-beat when it sees one, they're 17,500,000,000,000 in the hole and that's growing by 2,000,000,000 a day. The Feds should also pay Social Security the 2,500,000,000,000 they've robbed it of.

Steve Israel should be ashamed of himself. Ever since he became head of the DemocraticRead More Congressional Campaign Committee, he has moved further and further left. I cannot believe this man is a suitable representative for the electorate of his district. I look forward to voting for his opponent in November.
Archie Bunker April 16, 2014 at 07:04 am
I would like to thank everyone for supporting Congressman Israel. If he is not re-elected, I willRead More lose my unemployment insurance, free health care for my family and will need to find work. By the way, does anyone know if Obamacare covers braces?

COMMOM, since you are a factually-challenged rightwing twit, I will educate you about public sectorRead More pensions: The average yearly pension is $28K.

EXTEND!!!! It's pathetic that we as citizens allow the people who have never had to use socialRead More benefits decide whether we should be allowed to use what we all pay for every week of our labor out of our paychecks. Tell me one person on Capital Hill who has ever lost a job and had to use the Unemployment System until they found another? I bet its very small number. Yet we give them the decision making power to rule on our lives? Why? They receive full medical coverage,lifetime jobs for some,insane pensions that the working man/woman could only dream of, yet they do not work a full year like the rest of us? These are the people who we want representing our everyday issues? Not in my opinion. Time for this country to ORGANIZE!!! It's us against them it seems. Very sad day to be an american when you see our government coming off the rails and there is no answer in sight.
fred March 17, 2014 at 01:55 pm
Deb- I think you make excellent points and capitalism is the only economic system that works.Read More However we haven't seen capitalism in this country in years. Too big too fail. Subsidies, tax breaks. Adam Smith would be rolling over in his grave. You as a small business owner is the one getting screwed by the government actions and large corporations greed

On Wednesday, the Democrat-led Assembly passed a bill that would delay parts of the Common CoreRead More standards, including preventing Common Core testing from factoring into teacher evaluations........... The Democrats and Andy are owned by the teachers union. This is what they really oppose.....teacher evaluations....ie accountability

Hop aboard the LIRR and visit the Met or MOMA. You can easily spend an entire day at either ofRead More them. Another good trip in nice weather if Fort Tryon and the Cloisters, with lunch or dinner at the New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park. Or go downtown, take a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. Or check out Battery Park, or rent a bicycle and ride up from the Battery to the GW Bridge along the Hudson River, turn around and pedal to Central Park, drop off the bike, take the subway to Penn and the LIRR. The last one we did was the 911 Memorial, Trinity Church & Cemetery, the NYSE, the Federal Building (where Washington was sworn-in as President and where the Bill of Rights was written; cap off this trip with a meal at Fraunces Tavern.
