Libs only support if they’re not harmed
One thing you gotta love about the liberals: Before the Martha’s Vineyard thing, they were all for everybody and everything.
Of course, as long as it didn’t inconvenience them or cost them any money.

Retirees struggling through every day
The St. Clare’s Hospital retirees are not what they used to be.
Earlier in their lives they were all young and strong. Now their ages have crept up upon them, so they are far from what they all were in their younger days.
It seems when they were all young, they were having babies, going out and hanging out with close friends.
Today all the retirees are not young anymore, they are not strong anymore, and they are old babysitting their grandchildren.
When they should be collecting a pension after working all their lives, they are still working and being deprived by the St. Clare’s Hospital leadership, along with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, of receiving their pensions.
Due to the selfishness of the self-centered betrayers, the 1,100 retirees have to stay alive so they can try to live their dream being retired.
These loyal healthcare workers worked all their lives in some cases to receive their pensions, only to be told they would not get one, or if they had a pension, it would be reduced.
So for now, the hospital leadership and the bishops from the diocese are living a beautiful life, while the retirees have to struggle through each and every day.

Zeldin’s campaign ads harmful to kids
Our young children live in a world that too often allows inappropriate conversation and television programming with visual advertisement that provides strong language and frightening imagery.
As a former early childhood educator, I cringe and am outraged to see, in particular, the current and horrific TV campaign promotion advertisement for Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin, which includes terrifying video clips of shootings and other overt criminal behavior.
Children experiencing nightmares, anxiety, fear and a host of personal safety issues are the price that we pay for such poor judgment.
We need to be able to “think like a child and act like an adult” and let the Zeldin campaign know that they must correct this particularly inappropriate advertising.
Abortion is between doctor and patient
In this coming election, abortion issues are sure to be important.
It is not a government obligation to render laws regarding abortion.
This is an issue that should be between the mother and her physician. Unfortunately, issues do arise during pregnancy that affect either the child or the mother and these should be addressed.
If the child has problems in the womb or if the pregnancy is a danger to the life of the mother, the doctor will determine whether an abortion is necessary.
However the willful destruction of the fetus because of the instability of the pregnant person should not be an option.
Think before you have sex, and this will also give us the opportunity to stop funding planned parenthood.
