Seniors warrant $350 tax rebates more than high-income parents When I read the March 25 article about the state budget and the $350 tax rebate checks, it was noted that to be eligible you have to have at least one child and an income of between $40,000 and $300,000 a year. I am appalled that someone with one child, and an income of nearly $300,000, will receive $350 when most of our senior citizens do ...

Hey John maybe you should pay attention when they say "confiscate" (Cuomo) or "this is just the beginning" (Biden). These lefties have an agenda. You're okay with what they do until they come after you. If you love socialism, communism or dictatorships, you have plenty of countries you can travel to and try them out. Democrats are anti American, anti capitalists and anti- democracy. History has always repeated because evil people bent on greed and power dont change from generation to generation. If you can say you'd follow Durbin, Schumer, Peolsi, Reid, Cuomo, Obama or Biden into battle then we're lost, otherwise wake up and realize these people are creating your future. If thats not a wake up call I dont know what is.

Ethel, please explain why it is anarchy when Schoharie opposes clearly unconstitutional regulation and not anarchy when your president clearly ignores his constitutional obligations and laws? We have two sets of rules in this country. One that says conservatives must give up their principles and values, submitting to rule by fiat. One that says liberals can do whatever they damn well please. Lying is okay, hypocrisy is okay and laws are nothing more then suggestions that they can choose to ignore. Your president sent thousands of weapons to Mexico that killed hundreds, He should be impeached, but you only pay attention to Schoharie residents taking a stand against tyranny. How pathetic....

Ethel and John, Lets not forget Obama sued Arizona for protecting it's borders from illegals and then giving illegals a free pass. How about Cuomo and Schumer telling us that we MUST give illegal aliens in state tuition and a free education. Is that alright? If this law was so great and full of support, why was it passed in the middle of the night without public opinion?

Jacob,
Organic Chemistry is not a first year chem course in college and is a known cum buster. I know nothing about who is involved in the class but it is unfair to students to be offered a course without the pre requisites. The class as offered would not be accepted as an AP course at any college and would only hurt the students. The AP Chemistry class should have been offered instead...it was a poor planning decision on the part of administration. Kudos to you for taking the course knowing it would be hard!

John, a seven bullet clip is not standard. Most guns that are sold with clips come with a 10 round clip. Seven round clips are not and won't be manufactured. Cuomo has agreed to allow the buying of the standard 10 round clip however, you are not allowed to put more than 7 bullets in that clip unless you are at an authorized firing range or in competition. It is a crime to have a clip in your house with more than 7 rounds in it. Makes sense doesn't it? In other words, if I am in my house and the house is being burglarized by a criminal and if he is carrying a weapon with 10 bullets in his clip and starts shooting at me, I am three bullets short. Unless of course he is a nice criminal and is following the law.
