Altschuler Concedes Congressional Race To Bishop

So the Demokratz are entitled to all of our money and we should be grateful that they are giving some back to the ones who pay the most taxes? That, in a nutshell, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the reasons the Demokratz too a beating in the midterms. Confiscatory tax rates is one of the main reasons the economy is in thte crapper. By letting us keep more of OUR OWN MONEY there would be more jobs created, more tax revenue raised and less of a tax burden on all of us." Dec 10, 10 4:51 PM

In our area trickle down does work, very well thank you. Most of our non-governmental, including educational jobs are in the service industry. The rich are the ones paying for service, lawn care, gardening, construction trades, home security etc. etc etc. The income from the owners of these businesses and their employees drive our local economy. If not for the trickle down componant, we would be living in a financial wasteland." Dec 11, 10 8:50 AM

Unfortunately those days are over, and in today's world we live in a trickle down driven economy. May the rich get richer!" Dec 11, 10 9:57 AM

WOW Z, you sound bitter, maybe the socialist utopia dream doesn't work in reality? Actions have consequences. If your financial situation isn't what you want it to be instead of bitching, moaning and blaming, get out there and improve it. I see immigrants who have gone from walking to work to owning a business in relatively short order, no excuse for a native English speaker not to succeed in our area. We are relatively insulated here, thank God, and there is an incredible ammount of opportunity for someone to succeed, if you aim high enough." Dec 11, 10 10:44 AM

Z, I feel for youand wish you and your family the best,truly. As to the bigger picture I am a firm believer in free markets, free enterprise and the governmenr staying out of our lives. We live in an area full of opportunities as I've stated before, those who want to do better have the option to do so or not." Dec 11, 10 12:27 PM

My answer is--"we " don't have the right to dictate an individual's ammount of wealth." Dec 11, 10 12:50 PM

Tax Cuts Pass Both Houses Of Congress

QUESTION; HOW CAN MAINTAINING THE SAME TAX RATE THAT'S BEEN IN EFFECT FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS CAUSE A DEFICIT??!!" Dec 29, 10 8:44 AM

White Files Civil Rights Lawsuit Against Southampton Town

Incredible audacity! This joker had a high paying position in a useless governmental department and failed, so his position is eliminated and he walks with a decent retirement package at our expense. OK, that's bad enough. Now he wants to graze some more at the public trough. How to get seconds? Hmmm, what can I do? How about playing the race card? Yeah that's always good for a few bucks at least, hell, I might even hit the jackpot. Shoot for the moon, scream racism, descrimination, anything along those lines and take a lower ammount in an out of court settlement. This is our $$$$$ boys and girls,let this BS go to court, use the attorneys on the Town payroll and let the system work. When he loses, counter sue to recocer all costs." Dec 29, 10 8:56 AM

Two Charged In Water Mill Deer Poaching Incident

A couple of UTI (up the Island) tools got caught jacking deer by the DEC. Score 1 for the good guys." Dec 29, 10 9:02 AM

Residents Offer Support For Poisoning Fish In Mill Pond

While the water quality of Mill Pond has declined during the last few years, there was still an excellent bass fishery with a healthy breeding population. The lake's fish had great genetics that consistantly produced some truly LARGE fish. The problem seems to be the Solar Bees that were installed by the very homeowners who now want to poison OUR lake. When the Solar Bees stirred up the sediment the troubles began. The lake belongs to ALL Town residents, not just to the homeowners and we need to remember that. The Trustees should not give consent to the wholesale slaughter of the remaining fish in the lake and potential devestation of Mecox Bay. Mecox is a spawning area for a multitude of fin fish and is an vital shellfishing area for our Town residents, both recreational and commercial." Dec 29, 10 9:14 AM

Tax Cuts Pass Both Houses Of Congress

Yo Einstein: The amount of tax monies to the govt. stayed relatively stable. They government spent more than it took in. That's where the deficit came from. It's a problem of too much spending and not of too little revenue." Dec 29, 10 8:02 PM

Same old class envy BS Z Man. I wish you and yours a peaceful, healthy and PROSPEROUS New Year." Dec 31, 10 6:58 AM

Z Man: As a matter of fact I have lived in a few other places during my adult years. Our area has, IMHO, the finest quality of life. Additionally, due to our wealthy second home owners, we have economic opportunities here not available in many other places. I have no problem with or envy or wealthy individuals or families."

Blizzard Blankets East End; Dozens Are Still Without Power

Norsic & Son Application To Expand Business Remains Stalled

Holy mackerel--I'm in complete agreement with Mr. Z on this one!! The phrase caveat emptor should rule." Jan 11, 11 8:14 AM

How about taking responsibility for your own kids after school instead of forcing the rest of us to pay for it?" Jan 12, 11 9:18 AM

Hat: Did you migrate here from UTI (up the island)? If you grew up here you would realize that hunting deer puts food on th table for a lot of our reidents. Additionally, hunting is a time honored tradition that;s been passed down from generation to generation. We are all entitled to our opinions, but to insinuate hunters exhibit psychopathic tendencies is just ignorant. " Jan 12, 11 9:26 AM

I find it somewhat suspect that ANYONE living here for more than a year or 2 doesn't know someone who hunts. Your condecending attitude shows a lack of respect for tradition. Of course we all have the right to our own opinion, but to paint hunters as potentially mentally ill is just plain wrong. I'm trying not to let this get personal, but it's getting progressively more difficult." Jan 12, 11 12:48 PM

Razzzz: Where the hell do you think FEDERAL money comes from, hmmmm? It comes from US, THE TAXPAYERS! I oppose things that cost us money in the form of confiscatoally high taxes and provide questionable benefit.
Phil:Personal responsibility seems to be a concept that continues to elude you. It's up to the PARENTS to take responsibility for their children's care and supervision, not the taxpayers." Jan 12, 11 2:14 PM

South Fork Digs Out Following Blizzard That Dumped About 12 Inches Of Snow

GREAT JOB HIGHWAY DEPT!! We're usually one of the last roads to be plowed, but not this time. 2X by 1:00---thanks guys." Jan 12, 11 5:02 PM

BTW Hat, I don't hunt, but I respect the rights of those who do. Still think you're full of it about not knowing anyone who hunts, butI'm sure you have your reasons." Jan 13, 11 6:33 AM

Thiele: East Hampton, Rest of Long Island, Short Changed In State After-School Grants

RAZZZZ: By all means Help your neighbors and family, we should all do that--through charities and churches and individual works. But keep the govt, out of child care. Education is vital to the future of our nation and our teachers are some of the most important people there are, we have no disagreement there. But taxpayers hard earned $$ shouldn't be spent to babysit children when that responsibility rests with the parents." Jan 13, 11 6:39 AM

-Stagger their work hours so one of them can get the kids after school , it works for a lot of people I know.
-Hire someone to watch the kids for the few hours the parents won't be home.
-Think it through before having a family
-What did working parents do before after school programs?" Jan 13, 11 5:00 PM

Near as I can tell your argument is that people who hunt and fish are either
A- Torturers or
B- Borderline psychotic

Is that the thrust of it? If not please correct my misconception." Jan 13, 11 5:04 PM

No hate here Phil. I also remember when it took one parent working to make ends meet. I also remember when a guy working on the bay made more than a Town cop. My point throughout our conversation has been about personal responsibility. There's a point when one has to stand on his own two feet and deal with the realities one faces and not rely on the govt. to take care of your every need. I understand that we live in tough economic times and funds are tight for a lot of folks, however, the taxes collected are not limitless as some would lead you to believe. It's time for fiscal responsibility, that includes school districts too." Jan 14, 11 9:44 AM

Community Reeling from Arizona Shooting

While we are all entitled to our opinions about gun ownership, the second ammendment guatantees us that very right. Read it." Jan 14, 11 9:52 AM

Thiele: East Hampton, Rest of Long Island, Short Changed In State After-School Grants

I'm not putting a strain on anyone,Phil. Just pointing out the fact that parents are responsible for caring for their kids after school., not the taxpayers." Jan 14, 11 11:05 AM

Group Pushing For Religious Boundary Files Suit Against Southampton Town, Westhampton Beach And Quogue

"People like you" Razzzzzzz? Sounds like a bigotted comment to me. I thought you leftists always take the high ground on such matters. Playing the victim card too, you get a gold Demokrat star for your good work today! All you need for a clean sweep is a little class warfare and a kick in the nuts for Bush!" Jan 14, 11 2:46 PM

And right now some crack head from the Hill might be planning to burgle my home. I can and will defend myself, thanks to the 2nd ammendment and the hard work of the NRA>" Jan 16, 11 10:44 AM
