Poor economy exacerbates persistent East End tension over immigration

Well, it comes down to this. Illegal is Illegal end of story. I am a contractor and I refuse to hire illegal aliens. I built my new "mansion" without the help of illegals and whenever possible I screened the fewcontractors that I hired to make sure they didn't have illegal aliens working for them. Funny story though, as a contractor whom will not hire illegals I am constantly being underbid, makes me think twice sometimes, but my backbone is not a wet whinning noodle like most. I work extremely hard all day long sometimes as much a 80 hours a week to run my business. I deserve my "mansion" and all the "various toys" and "vacations" that some of you think is the average contractors life style. I don't hire illegals because it is illegal to do so! Another funny story, an illegal alien came to my office to get a job, I didn't believe his paperwork so I called the State of New York to check his credentials. You know what they told me. It's illegal to check credentials unless you first hire them and then file an I-9 form once you have emlpoyed them. Well, I would bet it takes several month before someone from the state actually gets off their tuff and looks at the form and several more before they make any determination. So I didn't hire the man because my LOVE of AMERICA prevented my from hiring and illegal alien. I would hire a legal immigrant any day, as a matter of fact my family business has employed a legal immigrant for almost 30 years now and we have had at time more that 3 or 4 legal taxpaying immigrants working. I am such a bad super wealthy hord of a contractor I actually give legal immigrants health insurance. Gee, just a thought maybe have a tax agent sitting at the location with all the illegals and collecting taxes from the contractors that hire them would help legitamate businesses succeed. Better yet, lets get all the out of work americans to stand along side of the illegals at their gathering spots and see what happens. I bet you would see lots of contractors hire the english speaking variety first, especially if they had to pay taxes on the person they were hiring. Bottom line is that government is an coconspirator in illegal hiring practices and mostly because americans are politically correct morons. You have the groups that cry foul whenever someone tries to do something. Remember that Steve Levey tried to crack down on illegal housing. Do you remember what heppened, he was basically blasted as being an bigot. Now there is a directive to the Suffolk County Police Departments to lay off the Latinos ever since the beating death of the immigrant in Patchogue. We are wishy washy little drones run ammock by political pressures to be kind and accept people into our arms. I only except tax paying legal lovers of America into my arms, then I push them out of the way and get my rear back to work to earn a living and pay my taxes just as they should do."

Air Force Two damages another plane while departing Gabreski

Does anyone realize what it takes to land the president at Gabreski. It must be a fortune. Why can't he land at JFK and get a helicopter out here. I saw all the special apparatus being trucked out of Gabreski today. At least three tractor trailer loads of special equipment to handle the plane. Special Stairway trucks and such. WHY WHY WHY. JFK or LaGuardia or even should I suggest Islip. Were they don't have to have special equipment trucked in to accomodate it. And maybe they won't blow anymore plane over and save us some cash.

Judge: Tape of Linda Kabot’s DWI arrest will be admissible during her October trial

Its pretty funny. Many people in this town get passes all the time. We are talking about the Mayors, the Village Trustees and such. When they get pulled over most of the time they go on their merry way. But sometimes they are just too drunk to let go, so they get a ride. Political positions in this town get you some favors here, but Linda was not well liked. There is a rat here. Most of us locals could name 6 or 8 people driving around every day loaded to the hilt, but no one does a thing about it. Linda might have deserved getting arrested but why start with her when there were plenty of people to make an example of before this. Past politicians of WHB, Quogue even a previous SHT Supervisor who partook more often then not. I am not in any way defending Linda or anyone who drinks and drives, but its tiresome that unless you play ball in politics you are an enemy, if any of you think for a second that the politics of the PBA are above this kind of thing, then I have a Bridge to sell! The PBA is there to protect the six figure salaries of police officers in our little one horse town and Linda was a problem!" Aug 19, 10 1:24 PM

Thiele calls for Stony Brook president to step down

Blah Blah Blah, Just another example of when you spend too much money for something it will eventually hurt. The state pulled funding because it doesn't have money because it is under funded because the state spent toooooooooo much money. The east end deserves only what the east end can afford, and obviously we can't afford the college or is this just another example of its too big to fail! If the management can not properly manage it, then bye bye. Thats life, it sucks and then you die. Why is it that every time real smart people make tough decisions they get the old Teabagger comment. I LOVE TEABAGGING, we seem to be the only adults in the room. Thiele is like every other political hack these days, blaming everyone but the people who are really incharge. THE POLITICIANS. ALL OF THEM. We are spending and spending and spending more and more and more. Borrow, borrow, borrow. We are just plain flat out of change!" Aug 19, 10 1:48 PM

Demolition crews still at work at Quogue gas station

Wow, everyone on this comment board needs to calm the nerves. Why has everyone become so angry. One, the land was given a use as a gas station long before any of you were born. Two, have you seen the Hess station in Bridgehampton - Well maintained and not unattractive. What's there now is a blight. Three, there will not be a 24 hour market. It will close nightly. Four, they are limited to what they can sell Five, The Quogue Market was recently sold and has gone through some good changes as well as price adjustments, so take a ride for a egg sandwich someday before spouting off at the mouth Six, you all sound like morons when you rant and rave about something so benign. Seven, cheer up. Eight, the world is not going to end because of the placement of a gas station. Nine, Hess is an american company. Ten, Just be quiet if you have nothing productive to say!"

Bishop Leads Altschuler After Absentee Ballots Counted

I love it when people whom have no true argument resort to name calling. I embrace teabagging. it makes me feel good that I love the country my ancestors decided to immigrate to. Unfortunatley for me people like you really dont understand that poor people don't build mansions that employ hundreds of construction workers or one other really important fact. They pay the bulk of the school taxes. Listen real close I pay 11,000 dollars a year in school taxes wich I think is really excessive. The kickers is that is cheap, one of my clients is paying a whopping 120,000 for his home, those darn rich people whom build those beutiful homes that pay for all our fancy schools they don't send thier kids to! Darn them. They should take their money and spend it somewhere else because all us poor people don't benefit at all. They should take my job and my business with them. Wait maybe they will take your job with them, and maybe just maybe we could pay for the huge tax burden on our own and then when it becomes way to expensive for all of us to run the schools we could all move to the places they moved to so we can have jobs and stuff. One question razza, when is the last time a poor person hired you? If you push the rich they will leave and take all their money with them, because as our ridiculous president has said it's a world economy and they can find more freindly places to park the money. Meanwhile we suffer because people like you would rather go it alone. You obvioulsy live here in Southampton. Take a trip to other areas of the country that don't have those ridiculous rich people paying the bills. You could afford a 10 acre piece of land with your very own double wide and a metal building with no windows for a school. Get a life and stop with the rich are ruining the whole world. You know who is truly ruining things is politicians in general. Democrat, Republican whats the difference. " Dec 8, 10 10:20 PM

Quogue Village Responds, Denies Allegations In DEC Report

BIGjimbo are you commenting just to see your words in print? What does having a personality have to do with being a good mayor. Please keep your thoughts to yourself, if you have proof of wrong doing please share. If you have specifics other than personal attacks please share. If you simply don't like the mans politics please frame it that way. But these silly little quips just make you look like a baboons rear." Feb 17, 11 8:18 AM

First ZBA Hearing On Proposed Luxury Golf Course Community In East Quogue Held On Thursday

Victoria you know what’s truly disingenuous. When 2 CO-chairs try to stop a vote because they know that there position is a losing one. Remember the comment “ you all are not here long enough to have a say on these matters” Also disingenuous is after the vote they ignore the vote and the letter that the rest of the body approved and asked to be submitted. Also disingenuous is submitting a letter the CO-chairs felt was more appropriate and that the body never saw. Also disingenuous is to claim that the approved letter was somehow invalid because the two CO-chairs didn’t like the outcome. Also problematic was when one of the CO-chairs looked me in the eye and said “ I simply could not submit that letter” because it did not agree with her agenda. You four are a serious problem for democracy and should not be sitting on any committee. " Jul 22, 18 2:45 PM

Concerns Intensify As Southampton ZBA Readies To Make Decision On East Quogue Golf Course

Most of the people that are against this project don’t live in East Quogue. East Quogue is in favor of the project. 9 of the 15 members of the Citizens Advisory Committee have voted to send a letter in support of the Golf Course. 118 Homes with a golf Course or 137 with work force housing are the choices here. Neither are the optimal choice but the golf course will increase the value of the property which will pay more of the taxes and most certainly reduce the use of services. Turf management program with test wells will give us the ability to monitor and shut down the golf course if needed. The article has made mention that it will impact the people of East Quogue but yet they have never even truly asked us where we stand. Instead they payed attention to the Civic Association that is ruled by one person, does not hold elections and has had few if any meetings. The Civic Association also ran advertisements for Bouvier and Lofstad during the last elections which makes them a Political Action Committee and in conflict with their 501-3c designation and lastly a partisan organization with one voice whom elected himself the leader. The Civic and the Civic coalition do not speak for East Quogue. Most of them don’t live here. Finally the size of the project is not a reason to deny it. If the project fits within clearing limits and building envelope than its size is of no concern and just another scare tactic used by the people whom oppose it." Nov 13, 18 7:06 PM

Experts To Speak At Public Forum On Single-Payer Health Care In New York At Stony Brook Southampton Campus

Thanks for making us aware of this forum with 3 days notice. Lost me at "regardless of legal status". If you build it they will come. We are already a sanctuary state, add free health care it will be gasoline on a fire! Just like Obamacare you cannot add 30 million people to a system and pay less. I did not keep my doctor and my premiums double. When it becomes a tax there will be no way for the people to control what we pay. Government never solves problems such as these, they simply talk about them and talk about them ad nauseam. Look to the VA system to see how the government will handle the situation. FAIL! Please stop moving us to a socialist system. If I wanted to be controlled and told where to go and how I am going to do it I will move to such a place. Stop destroying us." Feb 6, 19 9:51 AM
