No tax break a slap to firefighters, EMS

Schenectady County, most towns, and school districts have approved a 10% reduction in property taxes for volunteers in the fire service and EMS. This was proposed from the governor to assist with recruitment and retention of volunteers.
Apparently Glenville does not appreciate the volunteers, as Supervisor Chris Koetzle has repeatedly refused to place this item on the agenda, effectively killing it with inaction, even after several requests by the town fire chief’s association and others to do so. It is now past the time limit for this.
This decision comes after the town took from the fire departments, years ago, a grant that had been in place for the fire departments to build a training center. By getting it redirected to the town, the town was saying to the state that the fire departments no longer wanted to pursue it.
By these actions, or inaction in this case, Supervisor Koetzle has basically slapped the face of all these women and men who put their lives on the line for fellow residents each hour of each day. He will be the first in line to request assistance, however, when an event occurs in the town. If this town had to pay for the services the volunteers provide, no one would be able to afford to live here.
David W. Gallup

Town pols should focus on Niskayuna

I agree with Kevin Duffy’s letter, (Niskayuna Dems a Quest for Power). He was the campaign manager for Jaime Puccioni, Jessica Brennan, Bill McPartlon and Rosemarie Perez Jaquith.  I also question what Supervisor Puccioni and the board have accomplished.
We have high taxes, rising transfer fees, increase in “brush pick up” not eliminating it, Verizon fiasco, using an inherited fund balance for “pet” projects not decreasing taxes,  speeding on neighborhood streets, all  board members voting in unison on every resolution.
What happened to last election’s campaign promises?
Now Puccioni with her political ally, Michelle Ostrelich, has interjected herself in Schenectady politics
(February 18 Gazette article) by endorsing Marion Porterfield for mayor. These people love primaries. I was raised in Schenectady and have seen it in its best and worst of times. I know more about the city than Puccioni or Ostrelich ever will.
Mayor Gary McCarthy has and is doing a tremendous amount of work revitalizing the city. Do Puccioni or Ostrelich even know his accomplishments? Friends who live in Schenectady are wondering why the Niskayuna supervisor is meddling in city politics – a good question.
Some are now wondering if Puccioni and Ostrelich will call for a needed investigation of Councilman Damonni Farley. Since Puccioni has taken such an interest in Schenectady, Niskayuna should pay the $100,000 outstanding water fee it owes to the city.
Niskayuna’s politicians should worry about Niskayuna and fix Niskayuna’s  problems.

Get real and stop believing GOP lies

In regard to Renee McEvilly’s letter in the March 11 Gazette, (“Stefanik a voice for concerned parents”), are you serious?
Corrupt FBI? Prospective, drive and transparency are back in Congress? People have to stop drinking the Kool-Aid and listening to the garbage that Fox, Trump and DeSantis spew! Even Fox owner Rupert Murdoch realizes it’s all a crock of you-know-what.
He’s thrown all his people under the bus although it may be too late.
Pay attention everyone.

Schenectady school district explores lease of former OrthoNY building

How about using the school we already pay for than spending more money of the tax payers on space that could be utilized at the schools. If they have extra money how about reducing taxes.


So more people are watching news that according to James it is all lies. Funny how CNN after 4 PM sits like a stale doughnut.

As for the three cable news networks overall, here are the total day averages in total viewers and the 25-54 demo.

Total viewers:

CNN: 430,000

Fox News: 1.56 million

MSNBC: 790,000

25-54 Demo:

CNN: 79,000

Fox News: 186,000

MSNBC: 87,000

Here are the prime time averages — encompassing shows which air from 8-11 p.m. — in total viewers and the 25-54 demo.

Total viewers:

CNN: 440,000

Fox News: 2.18 million

MSNBC: 1.05 million

25-54 Demo:

CNN: 87,000

Fox News: 241,000

MSNBC: 112,000

So seems like the kool-aid James is drinking is no longer the favorite flavor of Americans. Maybe because people realize the propaganda from MSM / fake news is the problem.

Here’s some teality, sucker…

This provies that ratings don’t equal popularity.
Ship wrecks aren’t popular either, but if one went down in the Hudson you can bet every window on either side facing it would be full of bug-eyes glued to it.

Guy Varoma

Mr. Brandon 🤡 I understand why you are angry at the schools. They clearly failed you at getting and sound education. I suggest getting deprogramed from the Trump cult. And then take a night course on Civics. Maybe watching the old School House Rock could help too.


Stop funding the RED CROSS they are providing maps to illegal immigrants and directions to cross our borders illegally. Seems like even the RED CROSS is corrupt.

STOP FUNDING AND DONATING TO THE RED CROSS they are aiding and abetting the invasion. Are they part of the human trafficking.


The Red Cross is Providing Maps to Illegals Showing Them How to Effectively Cross the Border Into the United States
MARCH 10, 2023 AT 10:19AM

The Daily Caller News Foundation has obtained maps and other information guides produced by the American Red Cross which contain instructions on how illegal migrants attempting to cross into the United States can do so safely and without getting caught.
According to Daily Caller reporter Jennie Taer, the map which is “part of a packet stamped with the International Committee of the Red Cross and American Red Cross logos, shows a list of resources, including hotels, clinics and shelters where migrants can get support in Mexico and Central America.”
Additionally, other parts of the map also show defined paths which take the travelers directly to cities along the U.S./Mexican border. Some of the routes listed take the illegals directly to El Paso, Texas; Nogales, Arizona; and McAllen, Texas.
Going a step further into encouraging this illegal and dangerous move, the packet also provides a guide to “self care” which has instructions and advice on how to survive the desert and various diseases one is most likely to contract, as well as how to “safely jump on trains,” and “how to obtain contraceptives.”

AMERICANS deserve better than a traitorous RED CROSS helping people invade our country. RED CHINA CROSS.

The Daily Caller. Founded by news fraudster Tucker Carlson, recently exposed as a fraudster. Yet here’s another who doesn’t care if the news is true. Commenters like this actually want the fake news, thankyouverymuch! They have no patience for trivial things like “history”, and “context”.

And they so look forward to those two very extra-special days of the year when the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus come to visit! That makes is all worthwhile!


Joseph Vendetti

Worry more about banks collapsing then viewers of networks.

Have a former Congressman lobbying to undo rules.

Former Rep. Barney Frank co-sponsored the law that tightened banking regulations after the financial crisis. Since leaving office, he has been working the other side of the street—as a board member of Signature Bank, which regulators shut down Sunday.

Term limits and not allowing elected officials to lobby.

Stepping over dollars for pennies, Joe. It’s a bad business move and bad for political choices.

You on the right (and you certainly repeatedly remind us here that you are) look for these relatively petty Democratic warts to pick at and magnify, while it’s your own party who actually proactively rolled those regulations back.

Yes, some Dems were on board. Yes, Frank has some explaining to do. But bottom line, it was a Republican initiative, and Republicans own this crisis.

christophe Stalka

What a sad bitter soul let’s go brandies has a new chant he’s so clever

‘AMERICANS deserve better than a traitorous RED CROSS helping people invade our country. RED CHINA CROSS.’

Calm yourself brandies it’s Fox news

Term limits should be seriously considered. I suggest two terms for a senator, six for a representative, and ten years for a Supreme Court Justice. Elections should be publicly financed, cutting out the power of PACS and lobbyists; debates should be required among serious candidates (based on number of signatures on petitions and party nominations); free time should be provided by the major networks. No other programming should be allowed during the debates.

Fox News viewers watch the evening run of Hannity, Cucker Tarlson, the other lady, and Greg Gutfeld who is the least funny person on TV. He needs a laugh track to keep his jokes from landing with a thud. They get all riled up and then come on here and regurgitate whatever they heard as fact, when Fox has admitted it’s not news, it’s just entertainment. So, congratulations you’ve been played. They steal your attention for the entire evening while they count their advertisers dollars and laugh all the way to the bank. And then they get you coming back for more because the outrage machine can never be fully satisfied. Maybe take a few minutes out of your day to not be outraged, enjoy the beauty of our world and cherish the loved ones in it. On your deathbed I guarantee you won’t be saying I wish I had watched more cable news in my life.

Guy Varoma

Mr. Vendetti you forgot to add that in Trump’s first two years the Republican House and Senate along with a hadful of democrats repealed parts of Dodd Frank law….Which helped those banks to fail. Please tell the whole story not the parts to help your narrative, As far as term limits it will never happen unless our country collapses totally, and they write a new constitution. If you want change stop treating your party as your favorite sports team and root for them no matter how bad they are. Change your vote to remove these people.

Joseph Vendetti


I don’t have a “team” during voting. I try to vote what makes sense to my business and my family.

The point that should be taken from this is how much conviction went into the Dodd Frank bill? Where if he is paid enough money he is lobbying for repeal?

In my mind there isn’t one politician, one political party, one PAC I would ever trust. Politicians are liars and thieves and are there to enrich themselves and their families. At the present time the Democrats are aligning with Progressives and the Republicans with Christian right wingers and if you don’t think for one second they would both become polar opposites if it meant re-election you are sadly mistaken.

Look at all the most recent flip flopping just to benefit their party – McConnell, Graham, Cruz on Supreme Court nominees, Clinton, Schumer, Obama, Biden on the border, Biden on marriage equality, Gillabrand on 2nd Amendment- I could fill up the entire Gazette with flip flops between civil rights, gay marriage, banking, oil, tobacco, etc etc – its gross, its shameful, and should be the entire reason for Term Limits, no PACs, no lobbyists, etc – yet Bill, LGB, and others are devote worshipers to the right and chuck, Lou, dianna go to the left. I have seen you and Anthony take a more moderate approach.

Guy Varoma

Mr. Vendetti the reality of asking for term limits will never happen…You are asking the very people that would say or do anything to get elected to office to vote for their demise ….Only voters vote against their best interests not politicians.

Joe, what you call flip-flopping is often better characterized as a change of opinion based on thoughtful consideration of an issue. I believe that is the case in Democrats’ evolution toward accepting gay marriage. In some cases, when political advantage is the sole consideration, the term flip-flopping is appropriate. It surely applies to Rep. Stefanik and Senator Graham deciding after thoroughly disparaging him during the primaries, and as his star began to rise, that Trump was a wonderful man to lead the GOP. Often, as I believe is true in this case, such switches of expediency are often regretted.

“Flip-flopping” is a term weaponized by those who are intransigent. There is nothing wrong with one’s thinking evolving.
But flip-flopping does have a negative side when one promises they will not abuse their power to interfere in people’s health choices, and then once in a position of power, vote ro inflict their religious dogma on the non-religious.

Joseph Vendetti

Chuck –

So please explain why Chuck Schumer as a congressman (1993-1999) was for tighter border controls and voted in the affirmative for more border funding including stronger & larger bricks and mortar walls from 1993-2001 – all while President Clinton was proposing it, then from 2001-2008 under President George Bush he was opposed to border bills and voted against all bills for increased funding, then magically switched again and was in the affirmative under President Obama from 2008-2016 for more funding while President Obama was calling for tighter border measures, hold on, then switched again from 2016-2020 and was against funding Trumps wall and as a matter of fact vote “no” on all bills limiting migration, and of course we know where he stands now in 2020 ——

They are voting along party lines 98% of the time and have zero real convictions.

But you won’t go into the details of what he supported or opposed? You don’t think that matters? Critical thinkers would look into why that scenario plays out as it seems. Partisans don’t care and go for the optics, true or false, or somewhere in between.

If you want to look into the details and cite some that are contradictory, I’ll debate them, but to just say he liked soup when a Dem made it, and didn’t when a Rep made it, without mentioning the kinds of soup or its preparation or the quality of their ingredients is kind of a weak argument.

Guy, realistically, you are probably right, but I believe term limits have some merit. But then, so do publicly financed campaigns; it is most likely we’ll never see that either. Politicians like to have their palms greased and most have a lust for power. Note, I said most, not all.

Guy Varoma

Anthony the most powerful thing to change things is the right to vote. Putting the right people in office is a difficult task. Like I said People treat their political party as their favorite sports team. They don’t care about how much they stink and remain loyal

I for one am against term limits for Congress. If I like my congressperson and believe they do a good job representing me, why should I be forced to vote for someone else? Legislators gain more experience and knowledge of the institution (similar to any other job) over time. They build relationships with colleagues both within their party and on the other side of the aisle and come together to draft and pass (hopefully) meaningful legislation. They gain more seniority and based off their fields of knowledge are given more consequential committee assignments. I want serious people to chair the intelligence committees, not some first term wacko from rural Georgia. Plus, the threat of an election loss is the only thing holding legislators’ feet to the fire. That gives “we the people” the power to determine their fate if they don’t act in the interest of their constituents. If half of Congress is going to be serving their final term at in any given election cycle, what are the guardrails in place to keep them from enriching themselves on the way out the door? Not to say this doesn’t currently occur in some instances now, but it will be that on steroids for those that are term-limited. The issue I see, isn’t that legislators serve for too long, it’s that gerrymandering and low voter turnout, has stacked their districts in their favor so that they only have to appeal to “their” voters and not the district as a whole.

Spot on, Whoville.
I haven’t bought into the cries for term limits for just those reasons. Voices like Sanders, and Leahy and Biden are lucid, wisened public policy advocates we’d be foolish to cast off because of an artificial limit.

For me, the problem is the advantage of incumbency and how to better level the field at election time. Surely gerrymandering is a part of that problem. Campaign financing is another. But term limits should be determined by the public and their vote.


Governor here has term limits. State has a law you can’t run for president and be governor at same time. Governor here is going to have his super majority Republican lackeys (legislators) change the law so he can run for president and keep his job as governor. Point is unless in the Constitution is changed states will change the laws to suit whomever is ruling party.

Rank choice voting and ALL registered voters become No Party Affiliation. Would candidates try to play to all the voters since no R’s or D’s attached to voters ? Yes, no? A lot of NPA registered voters here. More than Democrats and Republicans combined.

Lastly all the hype about DeathSantis overwhelming victory in November. 32 % of registered voters voted. Christ was a retread with a lot of not great history as Republican governor and woefully underfunded by DNC. Was one of those flip floppers as JV would say since he became a Democrat as you can image. He was beat unmercifully in adds from Republicans. radical left, woke all the usual trigger words.
DeSantis also received a lot of coverage of him and Biden visiting after Hurricane Ian passed thru.

Joseph Vendetti

Chuck –

Bernie Sanders – accused by Hillary Clinton that he has Flip Flopped on – SALT (calling it against the middle class) but then voting for $120 billion SALT in 2021 & again 2022, flip flopped on gun laws for strict liability, flip flopped on immigration (said it lowered US wages) then was lobbied and changed his vote to support more immigration, & universal basic income – he was for it when he proposed it and against it when Andrew Yang proposed it.

Leahy has done the same on immigration, also voted for and against super delegates when it helped the democratic party, and for and against the filibusters when it benefited the party.

President Biden, VP Biden & Senator Biden – I would run out of room – immigration, saudi aribia, inflation reduction, 2nd amendment, key stone pipeline, gay marriage – I mean come on man.

Not an once of conviction.

Wow. Hillary said that, did she? Huh. I don’t give the Clintons a lot of credence, which is why I didn’t mention them.

Biden I will not defend for consistency, which is why I didn’t mention him.

But between Sanders and Leahy are nearly two hundred years of consistent activism for their constituents. ALL their constituents.

Guns – Again, I don’t what specifically you’re talking about “strict liability”, but Sanders policy has always been:

Overall, Bernie Sanders believes in a middle-ground solution in the national gun debate, saying in a recent interview:

“Folks who do not like guns [are] fine. But we have millions of people who are gun owners in this country — 99.9 percent of those people obey the law. I want to see real, serious debate and action on guns, but it is not going to take place if we simply have extreme positions on both sides. I think I can bring us to the middle.”

Again, what are the details you feel are contradictory or hypocritical? And PLEASE don’t lower yourself to say anything about “open borders”. No one in a policy-making, elected position wants open borders. It’s a whole-cloth invention by Republicans.
Why can’t a thinking person’s opinions or stance evolve on a subject? Not denying he was once skeptical about how immigration affects domestic labor. now he (and probably Leahy) think differently as we see so many jobs go unfilled by Americans.

The big picture with both of these men is they have been consistent in their focus as public servants, and have been clean of corruption for many decades.

Whoville, You make some very strong arguments against term limits. I really have to think this one out before I make my mind up.

Guy, what we need more than anything else for this democracy to continue is an interested and accurately informed electorate. It is clear, and for obvious reasons, that the far right dreads such an electorate. I think we need laws to limit dangerous lies told by those claiming to be journalists and objective reporters. We must put a stop to selfish pigs like Alex Jones, Steve Bannon, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingram et. al who care more about ratings than this country or world.

If the general populace knew the truth, people like A.O.C., Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders would win by overwhelming margins. The ridiculous economy that is allowing some to acquire a net worth approaching $1t. would end. Waste would be cut out of the military budget. Serious problems like pollution, climate change, and world hunger would become top priorities. Education would be prioritized and the economy would move toward civilian production as the malign influence of industry lobbyists declined, particularly Big Pharma and the Defense Industry.

But I dream.

christophe Stalka

chuck D and Whoville agree completely ageism is a joke you want to replace someone like Sanders with a young corrupt George Santos or the uneducated mad madge greene based on age. Give me a break. oh i guess Santos goes under the uneducated too.,

Joseph Vendetti

Who ever mentioned Santos?

You don’t find it hypocritical at the least that all these individuals have taken money from Big Oil, Big Tobacco, fly on corporate jets which has 5000x the carbon footprint of you and I & still can look you in the eye and say they are for renewables. Or how they are or aren’t for gun control but run around with private security and body guards and live in gated communities.

Chuck – Leahy was for simple majority and it ended up burning his ass when they lost he wanted to reinstate unlimited filibuster.

You take it so f*cking personal to be told the democrats are just as disingenuous as the Republicans. I’m not for either of them and I am fine knowing in my heart of hearts both major parties are dirty as the day is long. The DNC so didn’t want Sanders they cheated on a debate. The Republicans are so rotten they are afraid to cross Trump.

Flush the toilet.

Excuse me? I “take it personally”???
Go on…I’m all ears.
Because as I see it, you make weak arguments, whines really, and expect that’s grounds for debate. You’re borderline MAGA, Joe. Lots of hate, with little to substantiate it.
Sorry, but not sorry to point that out. I don’t think you have a future in litigation.

But tell me about how I take it personally…

Joseph Vendetti

Chuck because you want to debate that Republicans are less honorable then Democrats – they are all scumbags!!! All of them.

I gave you 119 examples of flip flops by clinton, obama. leahy, sanders, biden, schumer, mcconnell, graham, trump, bush, bush II, JFK, mccain, etc – you want to look into the details of how they differ on flip flop – go to you tube and watch clinton attack bernie, bernie attack hillary, trump attack jeb bush, rubio attack trump –

You remind me of when Hooper was questioning Capt Quinn on piano wire breaking – too big an ego to admit you are wrong.

Well, it sure wasn’t Democrats who wanted to overthrow the elections. Those 84 fraudulent electors and the plan they were following to overturn the election were in fact Republicans.

Not a minor thing, Joe. In fact unprecedented in US history. And all Republican. So please don’t lecture us on how all politicians are corrupt.

Guy Varoma

Mr. Vendetti I know one big difference between Democrats and Republicans …Dems never had a president who lost an election and told everyone there was mass voter fraud and sent a mob to the Capitol to “Hang Mike Pence”….”Kill Nancy Pelosi” and injure over a hundred cops because Trump couldn’t take losing. You say there is no difference between the parties …there is big differences this past 6 years…They still obey Trump and bow to his beckon call…they are sniveling cowards

I agree. You made many great points as to why we do not need term limits. Elections are term limits. There is entirely too much money spent on campaigns. Anthony is correct. PACS and lobbyists need to be curtailed. I am not sure campaigns should be publicly financed. Is it really necessary that candidates spend as much money as they do. Too much money is spent on TV advertising; and, who watches these political commercials anyway? There are opportunities for candidates to get their message out on line by email and social media. Voters could pay more attention to CSPAN programming for candidates, debates, town hall meetings, and other outlets that we have.

Joseph Vendetti


We all acknowledge that storming the capitol was the Everest of craziness that has occurred in our life time.

But you have to acknowledge that loons are on both sides of the aisle.

Remember James Hodgkinson from 2017? Campaign worker for Bernie Sanders that fired 60 rounds at a Republican Soft ball team in washington. Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La spent 6 weeks in the hospital with 5 other Republicans.

Remember Maxine Waters calling for Riots in 2021?

Nut jobs come in many stripes.

Elections aren’t term limits. Incumbents raise 40x the $$$s that challengers have. Where on earth is there any logic in spending $15 million in campaign contributions to win a job that pays $162,000 per year.

Guy Varoma

Mr. Vendetti the big difference between the Scalise shooting and The 6th insurrectionists is that every democrat went public and condemned the shooting….I don’t think there was a Congress woman who said she planned on visiting the shooter in the hospital before he died. MTG plans on visiting the insurrectionists in jail to make sure they are being treated right…..All I’m saying is if you weigh each side ….the republicans clearly tipped the scales in the last 6 years …You are putting a feather on one side of the scales and a boulder on the other side and saying the scale is evenly balanced ….it is not

Joe, you frequently do what Guy describes above, create false equivalencies. Acknowledging that some people on both sides are capable of acting out of control in no way diminishes the threat the 1/6 insurrection represented to this country, its values and democracy. Even though you equivocate by calling 1/6 “the Everest of craziness” your intent is clearly to diminish the evil scheming on the part of the MAGA movement. To imply Maxine Waters is anything like an MTG, Boebert, Gaetz, or Gosar is an affront to common sense.

This report is from CNN on 4/19/21. No thoughtful person, taking into account the horrible treatment of Black suspects by some police officers, would ever see this as comparable to the rantings of the above congresspersons or Trump himself:

“Rep. Maxine Waters on Saturday night called for protesters to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational” if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is acquitted in the killing of George Floyd.

The comments by Waters, a California Democrat and icon among progressives, were immediately seized on by Republicans who claimed that Waters was inciting violence. The congresswoman denied in a subsequent interview that she was encouraging violence, but the remarks come at a time of immense national tension amid several high-profile killings of Black people at the hands of police officers and as American cities brace for a fresh wave of protests as the Chauvin trial nears a close.

Waters said she was in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, on Saturday night to show her support for protesters amid ongoing protests over the police killing of Daunte Wright and to also support his family.”

“We’ve got to stay in the street and demand justice,” Waters said to reporters, according to video posted on social media.

Demonstrators hold signs honouring George Floyd and other victims of racism as they gather during a protest outside Hennepin County Government Center on March 28, 2021 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. – Opening arguments begin on Monday in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the white police officer accused of killing George Floyd, a Black man whose death was captured on video and touched off protests against racial injustice across the United States and around the world.

“We’re looking for a guilty verdict and we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd. If nothing does not happen, then we know that we got to not only stay in the street, but we have got to fight for justice,” she added.

Asked what protesters should do if there is no guilty verdict, Waters said protests should continue.

“We got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business,” she said.

Asked about the curfew put in place, Waters said, “I don’t think anything about curfew. Curfew means I want you all to stop talking. I want you to stop meeting. I want you to stop gathering. I don’t agree with that.”

The congresswoman’s comments come at a particularly fraught time in the nation’s history. Closing arguments are underway in Chauvin’s trial, and protests continue over the killing of Wright. Authorities have ramped up security around Minneapolis, with crews installing razor wire around some police buildings and National Guard troops have been deployed in parts of the city’s downtown.

In an interview with theGrio that was published on Monday morning, Waters said she was “nonviolent” and said her remark about being “confrontational” was in regard to changing the justice system in the US.

“I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up,” she said. I’m talking about legislation. I’m talking about elected officials doing what needs to be done to control their budgets and to pass legislation.”

Waters told CNN on Monday evening that her reference to confrontation was meant in the context of the civil rights movement’s nonviolent history, saying that “the whole civil rights movement is confrontation.”

Joseph Vendetti

Thats it ? What about the nut that shot 60 rounds and hit 5 ppl because they were republicans??

Maxine waters is a dirt ball that has enriched herself and her family with campaign dollars & on public tit while her district suffers.

Joseph Vendetti

Ok you guys win there appear to be 8 or 9 better democrats in congress then the nutty republicans-your opinion- mine – they all suck – we need to hit the reset button on the whole dam lot of them.

christophe Stalka

Great news the AMERICAN red cross will be holding a blood drive at lia toyota on March 21st. not sure if its CCP endorsed. But Ive given regularly for 10 years and encourage you to support this great organization and cause. if you’ve every needed a blood transfusion Im sure you understand its value and importance

Joe states, “Thats it ? What about the nut that shot 60 rounds and hit 5 ppl because they were republicans??

Maxine waters is a dirt ball that has enriched herself and her family with campaign dollars & on public tit while her district suffers.”

I repeat there is no equivalency, even if true, between these two individuals and Trump’s orchestrated plan to illegally and finally violently stay in power in spite of losing the election.

Don’t believe me? According to his VP in an article from AP on 3/12:

“President Trump was wrong,” Pence said during remarks at the annual white-tie Gridiron Dinner attended by politicians and journalists. “I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know history will hold Donald Trump accountable.”

Pence’s remarks were the sharpest condemnation yet from the once-loyal lieutenant who has often shied away from confronting his former boss.”

Guy Varoma

Mr. Vendetti it’s not a matter of “winning” it’s a matter of weighing the facts on each side and let the facts take you to the right conclusion. The only place the feather and boulder would hit the ground at the same time is on the moon. And we don’t live there.
