Altschuler will face Bishop in November

Summer, I was born in NY and lived here until I was 18 or so. During collage I lived in the South for 6 years, so I can only hope to qualify for your debate. My experience was different from yours. I found people of color to be less recognized by that label and more for what they stood for and belived in. The bad neighborhoods down there were full of crack dealers of all colors and creeds. In turn the affluent areas were less segregated than up north. It broke down more by your level of ambition and work ethic than the color of your skin.Trash is trash white or black and we are all American. Stop with the excuses and the race baiting.No more approving mortgages for losers and no more bail outs for big companies. We all have the right to fail. We can get through this only with hard work and integrity.Stop the union greed and corruption. More transparency on Wall street. Smaller government and more states rights. This will encourage competition and preserve or freedoms. We also need more charity on a locale level ... because only you know who is deserving in your neighborhood (white or black) not the federal government. Redistribution of wealth is criminal and should be called just that." Sep 19, 10 10:56 PM

Ok phila I will play along show me where I have been racial," Sep 20, 10 4:24 PM

Well lets take it easy and go point for point. When Latinos first started coming to this country they were migrant workers, mostly Christen people with strong family values. There was no such thing as MS13. It seems to me they picked that gang crap up in the LA jail system. It then spread back to Mexico and now look what you have down there. The Latinos I know over 35 have a great attitude, they are considerate polite and kind. They are here to work and raise their family's like our relatives of years ago. Its their kids that have the issues.
And I was at the diner when that tragic incident went down and I know what I saw, ask anyone who was working that day at the diner and they will tell you I am correct...Also the diner was busted several times for drug dealing in the bathroom of the hip hop dance club in the back room. Ask any Southampton police officer and again the will tell you I am correct. Its not Blacks I have a problem with Its the hip hop gangster culture that seems to glorify violence and criminal activity. So whats the problem???" Sep 20, 10 10:34 PM

I think I have articulated my case rather well. If you choose to see racism where none exists I cant change that. The gangsta culture was propagated predominately by African Americans. I here black leaders coming out against it all the time. As they should. It is vile and indecent. Philathome am surprised you support a culture that is rotting away the values of society and promoting rape, murder,gang violence and drugs?????? I don't understand you really" Sep 21, 10 9:35 AM

Ice if you bothered to read my post I said It was propagated by the African American community. What is your point." Sep 21, 10 9:12 PM

Nope, Still for small government, transparency and no more bailouts." Sep 21, 10 9:16 PM

Thank a union, are you insane? They are the greed that will bring this great country to its knees. Fireman are way overpaid! Police and teachers do a great job but they need the be realistic its not a endless supply of money in case you haven't noticed " Sep 22, 10 2:04 AM

It is a true statement, but I will concede it might have sounded to inclusive, by all means not all blacks participate in that mentality and I am sorry if I gave that impression" Sep 22, 10 2:08 AM

Court dismisses Konrad's claims of defamation

Well I guess she will never have the biggest house on the block again." Sep 27, 10 12:10 PM

the world is full of Nutballs" Sep 27, 10 12:11 PM

is that better Mr sensor" Sep 27, 10 12:11 PM

Don't tell us what is in or out of favor. It still makes me laugh that your house is by far the biggest of the original development. The homes you protest to are Very tastefully done. The real issue is taxes. Your neighbors have personally told me that these homes raise the property taxes. They same people that are for taxing the rich resent they have become rich. What a riot. as for you I suspect its about getting attention. In any event you lose know go bake some cookies." Sep 28, 10 8:54 AM

This act does nothing to help our small business. There is no tax cut for them, it doesn't help us create new jobs and they certainly don't want to borrow money now! They need more customers, and the only way I can see to get more customers is for people to have more confidence in the economy... not paralyzed by it by raising taxes! And this bill does nothing to help small business compete with the unions and goverment take over of just about anything the can grab! We the people see what the change was about now and you can stick it!" Sep 28, 10 7:29 PM

I have no problem with same sex marriage. I also think don't ask don't tell is very reasonable. Why must we insist on making people uncomfortable. Keep what goes on in your house to yourself.Civil unions should be allowed a relationship should be legally the same for everyone. Just stop expecting everyone to embrace it like it was mainstream. As far as terry schaivo is concerned why couldn't that creep just give her back to her parents for care? answer the $" Sep 29, 10 12:28 AM

Shinnecocks want three casinos on Long Island

One casino....... Gabreski airport,. Everyone should be happy with that location. No one wants to go to Belmont or Nassau. Thats what you are trying to get away from. When you go to Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun you what to relax have a great meal, see a show. Who wants to do that in Queens or Uniondale.Gabreski is still rural, Its close to the reservation, yet far enough away from the Hamptons.If you put it at Calverton its just not excisable for the people of the reservation to get to each day. It takes to long to get there from Southampton. The Garreski location would make the hamptons an even better destination for everyone. Preserving what we love but adding some excitement just a half hour away." Sep 30, 10 9:44 AM

I go to Mohegan and Foxwoods 3 times a year and there is absolutely no crime around either one. Mohegan is beautiful and celebrates nature in its architecture and motif. The reason some of you are against this is you have local restaurants and shops you wish to remain competition free.Gabreski is in the middle of nowhere . It is perfect, and I happen to know It is more of a consideration than being reported." Sep 30, 10 1:23 PM

Rechlers pick up demolition permit applications for Canoe Place Inn

This is the Hampton's not Rt 110. So a Morton's steak house and a Hooters would be more appropriate" Oct 1, 10 8:22 PM

So why don't you buy the property from Mr Rechler and build your catering hall ????????????????????????????$????????????????????????????" Oct 1, 10 8:24 PM

The needs of the many out way the needs of one fool on a hill (Who dials 911 at 10:01 every Friday and ruins 200 people having a nice time and a meal) Why did you buy the propriety in the first place? Kind of like the people around the East Hampton airport" Oct 1, 10 8:28 PM

Shinnecocks want three casinos on Long Island

Maybe so, but I feel if done properly It could be more like Mohegan Sun than trashy AC" Oct 1, 10 8:52 PM

I agree" Oct 1, 10 8:55 PM

I will consider it Soundview. Maybe I need to get off my "box" and stretch my legs for a day of Introspection." Oct 1, 10 9:01 PM

Z and Soundview, The way I see it and have posted in the past. If we give in to the idea of a casino a little to the West. Most of the trash will not venture beyond that point. We could negotiate a deal were a portion of the $ would go to accelerated preservation of open space. We cant beat the casino at this point so why not use it to our advantage? Thoughts? Sorry Soundview I suppose I climed up on that box again." Oct 1, 10 9:11 PM

Z, I have come to respect your opinion and most of the time agree to disagree.I must say at times you tend to wallow in self pity. Come on where is your American spirit? You can do anything you set your mind to, or did your Grand dad for get to give you that speech." Oct 2, 10 8:47 PM

No one huh, You mean no one on the hill maybe all 4 of you" Oct 3, 10 5:18 PM

Lets all switch back to black and white TV, telegraph machines and cars with fat whitewall tires. We have no choice to progress the key is doing it in a pleasing and responsible manner. Besides sometimes new is nice.... as long as it has charm and fits in with the character of its surroundings." Oct 4, 10 10:22 PM

Its all part of the cycle when the landlords realize they have to lower the rents the tenants will come back and when the stores are full the rents will climb again. Its called the free market people. If you don't like it move to communist china." Oct 5, 10 10:27 PM

I threatened them back and they folded very quickly , I have some friends who are shinnecocks but no one tells me I cant walk along the beach. The first 15 feet of shoreline belongs to no one. And pit bull or not, I would have taken them with me that day if they started, and I know you remember that day and I know you are reading this .Aho " Oct 5, 10 10:48 PM

East Hampton Town's tentative budget 11 percent less than 2010

Unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 10.1% in September -- up sharply from 9.3% in August and 8.9% in July. Much of this increase came during the second half of the month -- the unemployment rate was 9.4% in mid-September -- and therefore is unlikely to be picked up in the government's unemployment report on Friday.
