Oh my god ! Where did you get Hillary''s photo. She has not looked like this for 40 years ? I justRead More love the media showing a photo like this when she looks like an old goat ! Remember she already lost once and she is the most disgusting person in the world. When are we going to get some new people in politics. Why do we keep recycling the same losers over and over again.

Hillary is a very smart able woman. She served well as Senator from NY and as SECSTATE. I wouldRead More vote for her again. The drooling halfwits from the tea party can't stop her. The republicans will never win with tea party assholes fragmenting the vote. Very reasonable republican candidates are now forced into making idiotic statements to show that they agree in some way with the droolers. Hil is a winner already.

That Newsmax article constantly says this is a way to circumvent the Constitution. But since theRead More Constitution grants states the right to award their EC votes any way they want, this is perfectly legal. A state could decide to award its EC votes based on a contest. Have the Democratic nominee and the Republican nominee guess how many jelly beans are in a jar. Closest one gets the EC votes for their party.

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.

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.

If it means less of my tax dollars paying the medical bills for obesity, I'm all for it. It's not aRead More ban on soda, just on a certain size container. If you really want that much soda, just buy two. I don't see what the big "controversy" is about. We've got bigger things to talk about then this, like Stop&Frisk, airplane noise, or child traffic deaths.

Education is absolutely a better approach to combating obesity than legislation. We can’tRead More regulate our way to health, but we can teach how people about countering overall calorie intake with physical activity to improve our behaviors and health over the long-term.

Can I ask why if the speed limit is 55 or 65 than why do we make cars that go from 140 to 250 milesRead More an hour. We are always defeating the purpose. Maybe if there was a country that didn't live with this fast pace attitude with a lot of mistakes and calmed down we wouldn't have these accidents. Just like we have a problem with HIV but our Movie Industry throws sex and drugs galore in every movie out there. WE NEED TO LOOK AT WHERE WE ARE DEFEATING THE PURPOSE.
Phil Konigsberg January 16, 2014 at 03:34 pm
I've been advocating for years that there needed to be better enforcement of the posted speed limitsRead More by the NYPD, in particular, the Highway Division, with the authorized responsibility to do so. Not only do we witness on a daily basis the overwhelming majority of motor vehicle operators disregard the posted speed limit when they have the opportunity to do so on both our local streets and limited access highways but the careless disregard for public safety by the chronic running of red lights and other traffic regulations. The uniform enforcement of existing traffic regulations will save lives, and reduce injuries and property damage. Appropriate studies should be conducted to see if the existing speed limits on our limited access highways and waterway crossings are appropriate or in need of revision. The most outrageous disregard of a posted speed limit I've witnessed has been on the Grand Central Parkway from the BQE to the Northern Blvd interchange where the posted "Work Zone" speed limit of 35 mph has been completely ignored by the driving public and the NYPD Highway Division in enforcement. When we are continuously searching to balance NYC's bottom line to keep existing essential services and prevent the cutback of others, why don't we implement these actions? Doing so will not only provide a needed source of revenue but also become a significant factor in achieving the Vision Zero objective.
Harriet Brown January 18, 2014 at 03:25 pm
I think we need more police on the streets; especially dangerous crossings.

Many New Yorkers, both downstate and upstate will be watching Governor Cuomo's decision on whetherRead More he protects the environment and our drinking water by deciding to permanently ban hydraulic fracking in our state. Governor Cuomo has been walking the high wire on this issue for quite sometime. On one side there is a multitude of citizen based organizations and elected officials who have been trying to persuade him to make the current moratorium on fracking permanent versus the big oil and gas industry that are seeking the lucrative revenue that they are salivating over without concern over the reports of destruction of peoples lives throughout other regions of the country (as close as Pennsylvania) where fracking has been in operation. If Governor Cuomo has aspirations of running for President in 2016 or even re-election in 2014 then he needs to announce fracking in New York State will not be allowed - permanently.
