Forget raises and help retirees instead

The Buffalo Bills football team has a new stadium. The governor approved $660 million (over half a billion) for the project. The state legislature passed it.
Now those same politicians want a $32,000 pay raise. Thinking only of themselves, they have no idea retirees are deeply offended.
That raise is more than most seniors earn in a year, including Social Security. They seem to forget retirees spend their pensions here. They pay taxes here. They maintain their homes here stabilizing property values. It’s all done with their pensions.
In return a gracious Legislature gives them the highest tax burden in the nation. Is it any wonder retirees are leaving New York in large numbers? Is it any wonder we lost a U.S. House seat?
Unless we reverse this trend, our political influence in Washington will diminish.
That translates to fewer tax dollars returning to New York. In turn, the number of infrastructure projects for roads and water treatment will be reduced. Can’t you see what this exodus means, governor?
Instead of padding personal interests, help retirees. I’m certain you have half a billion dollars lying around somewhere.

GOP support for lies is bad lesson for kids

It is interesting that the Republican Party has two similar people:
One, Rep. Elise Stefanik, backs Donald Trump’s lies, the invasion of the Capitol and got rewarded for her deeds. The other,  George Santos, is a young man who ran for Congress from Long Island who lied about his education and job experience. Yet no one in the Republican Party questioned anything.
What are we really teaching our youth of today?

Stolen Christmas angels had meaning

What is the world coming to?
I have lived on the corner of Hamilton and Hulett Streets for 30 years. I have lived on the Hill for 60 years.
Recently some low-life came onto my lawn and stole my two African American angel Christmas lawn ornaments.
What’s sad is there is no great dollar value to them, since I doubt they cost me $10 a piece when I bought them so many years ago.
They are missing their lights, they’re chipped, and I have repainted them many times.
It’s the sentimental value. I have put them on my lawn since my grandchildren were small. They have all grown up and have children of their own. They still look forward to seeing my Christmas angels each year in front of the house on the lawn lighted up.
So if you’re driving in the Hamilton Hill area and see two African American angels dressed in white with long gold horns, you will know how these people got them.
All I can say to the low-life who took them is, God forgive you and I hope no one treats your grandmother the way you treated this 80-year-old grandmother.

GOP still living in their world of denial

Here we are, two years after the worst attack on our Capitol in history by our own citizens, several Capitol police died in connection with the riot and over 150 security police were seriously injured, including four officers who died by suicide in the following days.
Last week, to remember those who died and were injured defending the Capitol that day, a ceremony was held on the steps.
Names were read and a two-minute moment of silence and remembrance was held. There was only one Republican there.
It can’t be defended by saying they were busy trying to get McCarthy elected Speaker. It was held in the morning, and many officials were there and able to vote later in the early afternoon.
It speaks volumes that Republicans are still living in a world of division that they try to deny.
The Capitol security men and women were protecting all elected officials that day. It’s truly an embarrassment and so unpatriotic that this mindset continues in the GOP.
And, after 15 ballots for Speaker, McCarthy thanks Donald Trump. Really?

BIG Bill Marinicic

Spoken January 13th, 2023
“That you, Santo, pathetic, a lefty teacher, when I grew up teachers had class, they had honor they cared about America. They dressed well. Today you teachers run around in jeans and clothes you look like homeless people, teachers I had when I grew up shirt, ties, jackets, and women wore dresses down below their knees.”……..And women and children only spoke when they were spoken to. White men ruled the country, and Black people knew their place in society. Kids prayed in schools like they’re supposed to. Cops could get away with “justifiable” crimes because they didn’t have all that video crap. The FBI could harass, investigate and intimidate progressive thinking people who the old white men in rule deemed to be a threat to their power and control. Corruption was fair and honest back then, and bigotry was the accepted way. People understood homosexuality was a bad choice for the queers, and they could be persecuted for their sexual orientation without repercussion. Burn all the coal and oil you want without all these foolish, planet warming BS regulations. Aha yes, the good old days. MAGA

Mary Baker and Ray Nichols great letters the desperation and lack of honesty and ethics on the part of the GOP is on full display daily and should be exposed. Losers usually cannot succeed on merit but our Democracy has survived

George states what many in NY are living through. A socialist democratic government that caters to rank and file politicians and donors. The Bill’s stadium and the $32k raises are prefect examples of this. NY will continue to endure this until the tax base is gone. The migration of citizens fro NY #1 in the nation. NYC mayor stated that 505 of their tax base came from 2% of the citizens. Now that hey have left the NYC democratic socialist are holding their hands out to the Governor Jokel for help. And as the socialist she is she just comes up with more way to tax and regulate the blue collar citizens. George sadly until NY wakes up and starts electing candidates that have the citizens interest in mind it is only going to get worse.
Perfect example here in Schenectady a council member vying for the mayor’s seat that is inept and unqualified for the position. She and her cohorts are the epitome of pay for play based on their distribution of relive money given to the city. They push for defunding the police, they are radical socialist that lie about their qualifications. The irony is they call out the republican candidate caught lying on his resume but right here in Schenectady it is over looked.
Someday when people are tired of this crap they will vote to remove them but with the current political climate time is getting short.

In response to all of you lefties, and your comments about illegals and cell phones, this is from the ultra conservative newspaper, called the New York Times.

Guides still accompany the bulk of the migrants crossing the border, activists and Border Patrol agents say. Those guides are in regular radio contact with confederates, who warn of trouble ahead. But the Border Patrol has been noticing cases of migrants crossing alone but in cell contact with guides, said Mario Escalante, a spokesman for the Tucson office of the Border Patrol.

Mobile phones are ubiquitous in Mexico; many migrants consider them essential when crossing, right up there with sturdy shoes and jugs of water.
.
Now, though, in addition to using cellphones to keep relatives up to date on their progress, some illegal immigrants rely on them to keep out of the reach of the authorities. Ms. Silva said that her group had no coyote with them but had received directions by text.

I know you lefties don’t know big words, so let me tell you what the word ubiquitous means. It means everywhere, apparent.

Ukraine debacle and the continue support from United States to fund and arm the Azov nazi army in Ukraine. this from Reuters,
Many of the National Militia’s members come from the Azov movement, one of the 30-odd privately-funded “volunteer battalions” that, in the early days of the war, helped the regular army to defend Ukrainian territory against Russia’s separatist proxies. Although Azov uses Nazi-era symbolism and recruits neo-Nazis into its ranks, a recent article in Foreign Affairs downplayed any risks the group might pose, pointing out that, like other volunteer militias, Azov has been “reined in” through its integration into Ukraine’s armed forces. While it’s true that private militias no longer rule the battlefront, it’s the home front that Kiev needs to worry about now.

So here we have the democratic socialist here in the United States funding and arming the the Azov nazi battalion with billions of dollars and state of the art weaponry. The atrocities the people are seeing are now being linked to the nazi battalion. Ukraine and it connections to the democratic socialist parties money laundering system and the ties to the Biden crime family. The MSM is the propaganda leg of the corruption. The United States have become what we fought against in WW2. The true is coming out and more and more pieces are coming together.
Look at what the WEF and central bank is doing with our currency, look at what they pushing in our schools and the indoctrination and destruction of the family unit.
Look at the WHO and the covid virus and vaccines and what they are doing to the health of the people who have received the vaccines. The vaccines causing health issues in children, young adults otherwise healthy having serious health issue with respiratory, reproductive issues. Didn’t the nazis in Germany test medications on the Jewish people in concentration camps?
Look at the destruction of our borders and it took Biden 2 years to say oh gee whiz that looks like there is a problem there. Meanwhile millions of illegals no idea who or what they represent cross into our country. How many are here to be an American or is it an army invading our country to create a war within our country. Why the push to remove the second amendment? Disarm the citizens like Germany did. Put the pieces together and see for yourself. The information is there for all to see, stop relaying on MSM to feed your head with propaganda. By the way is what Hitler did to German citizens. Our founding fathers put the second amendment there as # 2 for just this reason. A tyrannical government must be overthrown by well, armed militias. This amendment shall not be infringed upon.
Our country is broken because the they refuse to see what the Democratic Socialist party is pushing the United States into what we fought so hard to remove in WW2.
The country needs to be realigned to our constitution republic. We are not a democracy that people so foolishly align themselves with. Yes there is a difference between the two and the socialist say oh that’s not how we are it’s just run like a democracy? WORD’S HAVE MEANING.
The more time goes by the more it is being exposed. What was once called conspiracy is coming true when will America see what is going on. Obama came out and said we going to fundamentally change America. Well you voted for it and now you see what it means when the socialist say fundamentally change looks like.

Mr. Bill 🤡 that article was written in 2011 from Star News Online….not the NYT ….and you failed to cite the whole article as usual you left out or changed important facts. ..Nice Try…..Now double down on your stupidity for me

letsgobrandon

Looney Lou just what the socialist want complacency the donkey clown sheep patrol will just board those trains to happy land just like they did in Germany.

Mr. Brandon 🤡 that is the shortest dumbest statement you ever made. Your long winded posts no one reads. Bravo ! brevity is the way to go for you.

letsgobrandon

Funny the donkey clowns call for more information once it is provided the say long winded. Here’s another short on

EEEEEE-HAWWWW

ANTHONY J SANTO

Any bets that BM had to look up the definition of “ubiquitous” before he implied he knew the meaning and we “lefties” did not? It brought to mind a funny quote poking fun at people pretentious enough to use big words, not for clarity, but to appear intelligent:

“If my language is too copious for your dominion of comprehension, I will endeavor to be more explicit in my future elucidations.”

Bill Marincic

This site never allows me to post a link. I’m separating it so it posts you can put it together. Don’t be stupid and say that the link doesn’t work.

Bill Marincic

Aroma, I posted the link for the New York Times article. Wherever you got your thing probably quoted the New York Times article. Now double down on your stupidity, or in your case just be you.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Do you believe I would take your word on it, or for that matter, anything? Jesus didn’t like gambling, so I don’t gamble. Do you remember how he threw the money-changers out of the Temple after upending their table? Love of money is the root of all evil. At the bottom of yesterday’s posts:

Hey everybody! What are the odds that BM will give a reasonable response to either of the two posts above? Let me abbreviate them for clarity:

-Is 100%, or perhaps more than 91% agreement with Trump, necessary to avoid the RINO label?

-Did Trump claim that E. Jean Carroll liked sexual assault and rape in an attempt to shut down Carroll’s charge of rape?

Read the above posts for more details on why I ask these questions of BM. (They are above this quote on yesterday’s postings).

Speaking of BM, don’t evade these questions, answer them. Prove I am wrong!

Hands down Tony, you obviously have a grater mastery of the English language than most, if not all in on this site. That certainly includes Bill and me as well.

Sadly the imaginary man in Bill’s head will not allow him to be wrong at any cost, or inferior to anyone, especially a “lefty donkey clown”, in any capacity. That’s why he’s 17% Black, has a transsexual sister, a Black grandson, an abused daughter and a high IQ.

So now I’m sure he believes he has indisputably proven his superior mastery of linguistics by challenging you to a bet that he knew the meaning of ubiquitous, a “big word”.

The word of the day: sesquipedalian
“Use the adjective sesquipedalian to describe a word that’s very long and multisyllabic. For example the word sesquipedalian is in fact sesquipedalian.”

Elephant 🐘and whale. 🐳 Two big words that Bill may like to add to his extensive vocabulary. I added the emoji’s so he would better understand the meaning of the words.

Mr. Bill 🤡🤡 the link doesn’t work …at least not for me ….like I said the only thing I found on your post was a story from 2011 and not from the NYT …..Does the link work for anyone else?

Bill Marincic

Actually, Santos, it was my very first response of the day. I know it was too early in the morning and you didn’t have your oatmeal and milk yet. Once you do everybody a favor and stop taking that pension that you got, we all know you didn’t earn it Dope

Bill Marincic

I see you just woke up from your nap Lou and you got your caretaker to read to you. How nice. In just a little while you can have something else to eat and maybe he will give you a warm bath before bed.

Big Billy youre being especially nasty today is it because you got caught lying again?
im voting for the word of the day being liar… simple and accurate! Anthony and lou the link is fake

watch the name calling nasty Billy just because youre a liar doesnt give you the right to call anyone names Actually, Santos, it was my very first response of the day. I know it was too early in the morning and you didn’t have your oatmeal and milk yet. Once you do everybody a favor and stop taking that pension that you got, we all know you didn’t earn it Dope

Actually nasty Billy you might want to run libel and slander through your new toy dictionary.com. Real easy to understand definitions even for A liar who is 17% Black, has a transsexual sister, a Black grandson, an abused daughter and a high IQ and is a compulsive liar. What a waste of time you are dude

Bill Marincic

Bob/Chris I’m in your head but you got the wrong amount of Black blood. You go to sleep thinking of me and you wake up thinking of me besides your TDS you have BDS. You might want to take a bath and get something to eat, you know you need your sleep, 8th grade is extra hard for you this year, you would think that you having to do it all over again it would be easier for you.

like I said liar youre a waste of time get lost. stop letting that little boy obsession creep out dude its gross even for you.

Nasty Billy in case youre confused this is what Im talking about.

Like I said liar youre a waste of time get lost. stop letting that little boy obsession creep out dude its gross even for you.

Actually, Santos, it was my very first response of the day.

Once again you did not respond to the questions I asked. To be certain everyone sees you for what you are, I’ll post the inquiries again:

“Do you believe I would take your word on it, or for that matter, anything? Jesus didn’t like gambling, so I don’t gamble. Do you remember how he threw the money-changers out of the Temple after upending their table? Love of money is the root of all evil. At the bottom of yesterday’s posts:

Speaking of BM, don’t evade these questions, answer them. Prove I am wrong!

Here is BM’s first response today:

“In response to all of you lefties, and your comments about illegals and cell phones, this is from the ultra conservative newspaper, called the New York Times.

Need I say more? Obviously there is no link between his post and my inquiries which he still hasn’t responded to. I’ll let others decide whether Lou and I need milk and oatmeal or BM, who is incapable of giving a direct or honest answer.

Bob, maybe he is cranky because he had difficulty with another type of BM, though they share much in common.

I’ll continue waiting for your response to the above quotes. Just so people know, the first question is based on BM’s claim that Adam Kinzinger is a RINO because he “only” voted with Trump 91% of the time.

ANTHONY J SANTO

BTW, BM, I will continue to enjoy my pension and social security! I make enough to contribute to a gofundme request to send you to the Deep South.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Also, Guy, you are of course right; the link doesn’t work; BM is letting out a lot of hot air today. Phew! I’m glad I’m not near him.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Many won’t read my lengthy post and I don’t blame them. The short version is that BM did not respond in his first post to the questions I asked yesterday and repeated today. Anyone can look at the last few posts yesterday and today’s posts to verify that truth. BM’s supercilious attitude drives me to reveal his obvious “disinformation.”

christophe Stalka

Mr Santo your post had many valid points and you’re all right the link is another fake mr. Garet you’re more than accurate he’s one nasty dude plain and simple

Lou, I won’t and can’t lower myself to your level, my IQ is too high. Don’t drown in the shallow end of the gene pool.

“I see you just woke up from your nap Lou and you got your caretaker to read to you. How nice. In just a little while you can have something else to eat and maybe he will give you a warm bath before bed.”

Good job of not lowering yourself. As I said before, your way too easy Bill.

BTW, the imaginary man in your head did a poor job of prompting you with your attempt at sarcasm or humor. Not sure which it was, but either way, it went over like a wet fart, as do most of your posts.

Stick to swindling naïve auto buyers with the unnecessary aftermarket auto dealer ripoffs, probably the only thing you’re actually good at.

christophe Stalka

Yeah that’s a normal post for an adult male to make to anyone else mr restifo and Garett I’d look into the blink home security systems if you don’t already have one in place I love mine.nasty liar.

Bill Marincic

This is for the blind mice donkey, Klowns, tomorrow morning I will post an email address with the password to login which will show you everything you accuse me of lying about. My sister, my granddaughter, and my DNA. I know this still won’t be enough for the blind mice, but that’s fine, you are what you are everything you post on here has everything to do with attacking me and nothing about commenting. You’re just a bunch of nasty old men and little kids that have nothing better to do in your lives.

Bill Marincic

Hey Lou stick with ripping off the people in Hamilton Hill with your cheap Chinese flooring that’s marked up seven times. You’ve been doing it for years, that’s why you put your store there so you could rip them off.

Bill Marincic

I told you clowns don’t tell me that the link doesn’t work, I told you just to backspace on the empty spaces. I think you’re lying because the link worked fine for me when I did what I told you to do. So what happened is you went there you saw it was true and then you come back on here and lie and say the link didn’t work. Typical blind mice, donkey, clowns.

ANTHONY J SANTO

BM, you follow the example of your mentor, Trump, very well. You accuse those you hate of doing all the offensive things you are actually doing. The link did not work. You can’t backspace on comments, including links, already posted. You can do that before you post.
