Stratton has hardly instilled confidence with Canal Corp. job I had to laugh when I read Canal Corp. Director Brian Stratton’s recent comments on impending layoffs in his department and the Thruway [Feb. 21 Gazette]. Stratton claims that the loss of 42 lower-level jobs in his department shouldn’t disrupt any operations of the state’s canal and lock system. His past history, however, leads me to believe just the opposite. Stratton was given his current job ...

Re: Faulisi - and of course we would now have a President that told only the truth? Jeeps made in China, for example. Immigration would be solved with self deportation. I would still be supporting the 2% with my hard earned dollars. Oh, if only 2% more of the 47% watched that fair and balanced Fox News and checked their facts on the internet!

Janesjoys, you really have no clue about Fox do you. You are the true Kool-aid drinker. Like most liberals you dont understand the difference between the "NEWS" and
conservative programing. When Fox does news it presents the story as is, better then any other network. The anchors of the left wing stations you watch are all lefties as well. They do their part to promote the brain washing you have gone through. When it comes to balance, they go way over board to ensure the lefty loons are on their programs. How many conservatives are allowed a daily platform on your loser stations?

Virginia. Why didn't you define the term "assault weapon" in your editorial? Hmm? What exactly constitutes an assault weapon? Do you know that the term was invented in 1989? It is simply a cosmetic definition about the APPEARANCE of a semi-automatic rifle - not the PERFORMANCE of that firearm. It's not a machine gun, which is extremely rare to find and almost impossible to own. I suspect you have a certain amount of naivete or possibly willful ignorance about the term "assault weapon." A gun is no more responsible for human actions than a knife or a car or a lit match. Guns don't shoot people. People shoot people. Cars don't drive drunk. People drive drunk. Knives don't stab people. People stab people.

I challenge janesjoy to watch one week of Fox News from 7pm to 10pm for one week and then tell me how they don't report fairly. I watch NBC news every night then Fox news, I see how both are reporting the same story.

It is truly amazing that readers assume what I watch and don't watch. How do you think I even know what Fox is reporting. I actually watch right wing and left wing news and research many websites before making any assumptions on what might be the truth. Perhaps you all should do the same.

Well Then Janesjoys give us a glaring example of FOX NEWS misreporting a story. How about one where they doctored the audio or video.CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NYT, Boston Globe to name a few have all had published issues with that. So when Scott Pelley asks John Boehner'
"As the majority leader, dont you think you have a responsibility to lead on this" in reference to sequestration is he being fair? Does he ask Reid? Obuma? No he doesnt. He wants narrowed minded lefties to think Boehner is not doing his job. Who was honest about the Duke rape accusations? Sequestration? The Travon Martin incident? Not those idiot "news" channels you listen too.

Janesjoy, you have to forgive our friends on the right. Look at their lack of maturity. Their blatant name calling is significant to understand them. When was the last time you or I changed someone's name into an aberration of their name the way Phils2008 does above with his reference to the President of the United States as "Obuma"? For me, I think it was seventh grade. And describing highly intelligent news organizations that he happens to disagree with as "idiots" is funny. Of course all lefties like you and me are "narrow-minded" according Phils2008. But apparently, sometimes, our right wing friends eventually get caught in their overt name calling and cross a line, as happened a day or two ago to Wmarincic, when apparently the staff of the Gazette judged what ever comment he made to be over the top and deleted it. (Thank you)
Janesjoy. Keep commenting. I enjoy reading your thoughts.

Let us not forget the racist call of MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC,and CNN sayint that George Zimmerman was a "White Hispanic" thereby imflaming racial hatred and in fact because of that and the doctored phone all from NBC Mr. Zimmerman had a $10,000 bounty put on his head by the New Black Panther Party. Yet with this administration not only was nothing done to the NBPP about the bounty, nothing was done about the them carrying baseball bats and intimidating voters. As far as stockadian and his comments, there is a double standard at the Gazette. Liberals get a pass as what they say, see he can call me a lapdog and get away with it, where I get deleted. I wonder who the lapdog really is though? I would say it is those that blindly follow a tyrant and try to make the news rather than report it. As this and other liberal news outlets do.

John Angilletta has it right about the canal system and politics. The first time we saw there was a major problem a few years ago the moveable dams were not pulled because a "navagable pool" had to be maintained and unfortunatly that navagable pool wound up being Fonda. Anyone who grew up on the river could do a better job than all of Wanna be Pres Andrews cronies. Heavy rain, start pulling gates down stream and go upstream as far as needed. The few boats lost will be far less than the lost homes and property damage avoided.
