Union Members Don’t Even Trust Union
The New York City carpenters union has been in trouble with the law for many decades. Organized crime has been endemic with the union for a long time and union chief after union chief has gone to jail over the ties and other corruption. Even shop stewards have gotten into the corruption game with four recently convicted on charges of fraud, conspiracy or bribetaking. It’s | Read More »
Rank Liberal Hypocrisy. NY State Edition.
Cross-posted on TMR and MFOB (h/t to Elizabeth Benjamin, NT Daily News, via Drudge.) Do you remember when SNL did a skit making fun of Gov. Patterson Original SNL Skit And then I assume you remember his response to SNL seen here and here in the NYT’s. Honestly, I can see how he could see it as not personally funny..the man is blind and has | Read More »

The question that comes to mind is why? Why did Reuters imagine this idiotic claim, this obvious lie, was worth reporting to the world? Does Reuters not have the good sense God gave a door knob? Why would Reuters | Read More »
Scott Murphy (D) thinks that the voters of NY-20 are stupid.
Give as much as you can. That’s a provocative title, to be sure – but after reading this Weekly Standard article that’s the only conclusion that you can draw. Between lying about his opponent’s stance on the stimulus, lying about how he’s not checked out on the Solomon amendment (in NY-20! That’s like not knowing about the CBC in MD-07, or corrupt machine politics in | Read More »
Congress Letting Kids Fail In Bailoutville
Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York has been a self-styled education mayor. He’s made all sorts of proposals and tried several different angles — some good some not so good — to improve the education of the kids of New York. He has, though, been a proponent of school choice and this advocacy looks to be a success, at least for the kids of Harlem’s | Read More »
NY Rep. Eric Massa, From Fuel Cell to Fool Sell
The newly sworn-in Democratic Representative from New York’s 29th District, Eric Massa, has apparently made a fuel of himself… and of those that elected him. And the amusing thing is he did it on the way to his swearing in ceremony. No waiting to actually take office for Massa. No, this man thinks BIG! With great fanfare from local and regional media, Massa announced that | Read More »

New York 1st CD
I know that NY is not a red state, but there are a number of Congressional Districts that have elected Republicans. We are the boundary against the insanity of New England which only has 1 Republican – Shays – and he is far from being a conservative. Here on Long Island we have a large number of conservatives and moderate voters. Lee Zeldin is trying | Read More »
Philly Flyers owner shout out of Thanks (Post-election Update)
“Went to a Hockey game, and a Sarah Palin rally broke out.” Hockey lovers will understand that to be a play on the adage “Went to a Fight, and a Hockey game broke out” (referring to Fighting in Hockey). Those who know nothing about Hockey, will still be confused. But… In this case it has to do with Sarah and Mom’s in general and McCain/Palin | Read More »
