President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

Congressman Bishop, you displayed true leadership with your historic vote on this important new law in our country. Your constituents are with you.
Remember that there was much opposition to the 19th Amendment as well.
Thank You." Mar 23, 10 5:00 PM

Bishop will vote yes on health care reform bill

Yea...you all said that about social security as well." Mar 23, 10 5:03 PM

President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

Hey Reality, read your history! The Constitution was written because our little ineffective government under the Articles of Confederation was not working. I am sick of you taking the side of such great men as our Founding Fathers to advance your partisan agenda. Those men knew that change was necessary to adapt to new times and challenges. That is why they wrote a Constitution with flexibility.
By the way our little government was bankrupt and those Founding Fathers worked and fought to increase the size and power of the central government, and you use the SAME arguments as those who opposed them and our United States Constitution.

Where was all of this fiscal responsibility on the lead-up to the Iraq War?
Our children will be paying for that!" Mar 24, 10 8:10 AM

You are not entitled to speak for what the founders wanted or did not want!
Like I stated earlier, the Founding Fathers created our Constitution to avert disaster from a weak ineffective central government under the Articles of Confederation. In addition, the founders provided flexibility in our government to meet the needs of the new times and challenges like now.
You use this rhetoric to try an advance your partisan agenda and it is simply wrong!

" Mar 24, 10 11:07 AM

Ummm.....this is not socialized health care.
Try turining the channel from Fox for a couple on minutes each day to get real news." Mar 25, 10 9:12 AM

I do not care what other station you choose to watch, but just know that fox is not news.
Again, the bill is not socialized health care!
" Mar 25, 10 10:34 AM

Yea, Like that will ever happen!
Why do you Tea-baggers love the insurance company’s soooo much? They would just assume let you die if you neglected to initial subsection 42 on page 12 of your incredibly expensive insurance plan that you have been paying for 31 years……and yet you defend them.

Around Southampton Town Hall

Suskind.....Republican turned Democrat to get elected and then was Skips best buddy.....yea I remember him. He was and still is a developer.

Bridget Fleming sworn in, helps push through gridlocked resolutions

Then there is the chance that this person in this position could do great things for the town, perhaps greatly lower the operating costs. Careful.....this position could actually save the town money." Mar 30, 10 7:13 AM

The Town of Southampton needs innovative solutions which will benefit us in the long-term. This position is funded by a grant and does not cost the taxpayer anything, and part of the position is to continue to obtain grant money to sustain the position. Like I said, this person could help reduce the operating costs of the town in general.
(reg rep-Registered Republican) Try to not react so partisan and get the big picture. We need to keep the welfare of the town in mind rather than the Republican talking points.
This position cost nothing and may help reduce operating costs.
Fortunately for the taxpayers this “dream” (representing hard work from many people) is now a reality.

Congressman Bishop prepares for difficult race but remains hopeful for outcome

Congressman Bishop continues to fight for Eastern Long Island! I
He has my vote and the votes of many others....keep up the good work Congressman! " Apr 7, 10 8:26 PM

Razza....a bit of Constitutional history.
OUR founding fathers created the United States Constitution in order to correct the problems of the Articles of Confederation which was a central government so weak and ineffective that the nation was falling apart and on the verge of economic collapse. The nation had 3,929,214 people with 94% living in rural areas.
Included in the US Constitution are mechanisms for flexibility and growth to meet the needs of changing times namely the amending process and the elastic clause, (Article I, Section 8, and Clause 18). The Framers knew that times would change and they created a document to meet those changing times.
Today, we have 306,000,000 people with the largest economy and military in the world. It is wrong to compare the United Sates to day with that of the United States in 1789 with regard to the intentions of the framers.
The US Constitution was the most LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE document of its day as all other modern countries of the day were monarchies (Kings, Queens, Czar, Shoguns & Emperors etc...) without codified governments.
As far as the Framers favoring the Tea Party people over the far left…….The Founding Fathers were the Far Left of their time…….except for Hamilton.
" Apr 10, 10 10:07 PM

Razza....Like I stated earlier, the Constitution was written to increase the powers of the federal government from an ineffective and weak small government under the Articles of Confederation. Now the limited role thing came about because the 13 states still had to ratify (formally accept) the Constitution. In 1789, the States still held most of the power and would never accept a central government which was more powerful than they, thus the framers were forced to limit government.
Also as stated earlier the Founding Fathers provided for change in authority in our federal government through the amending process and the fact that Congress can make laws.
We are now faced with private industry chocking the rest of the country including individuals, families, businesses and municipalities and the Federal government has responded to the abuses of the insurance industry.
By the way….why do you fight for the insurance companies? They would let you die over a technicality.
I did not make the history it just is.....you may want to look into something a bit more informative than a seventh grade text, might I suggest…the “Federalist Papers” Publius (Hamilton, Madison & Jay), “1776” David McCullough and “Founding Brothers” H.W. Brands.
Do not speak for the Founding Fathers…….ever.
" Apr 11, 10 3:40 PM

Where were all you deficit guys when Bush dragged us into a war in Iraq???
Also, does BIG Insurance work? How much money are they making annually?? For the life of me, I do not understand why you tea-baggers are defending insurance companies. They would just assume let you die over a missed initial on page 42 paragraph 6 on a policy that you had paid into for thirty years.
Those insurance companies are chocking the nation...individuals, businesses & municipalities.
Thank god we have people in government who are willing to take on such abuse on behalf of the people." Apr 13, 10 8:50 AM

Government answers to the people, while the insurance companies answer to no one and they are choking the nation financially.....and you are defending them.

Local Tea Party movement holds two rallies on Tax Day

What I want to know from the Teabaggers is where do THEY want the cuts to come from??? One thing is screaming about tax-cuts it is another thing to say where to make the program cuts.
If they were more specific about what programs they would cut, the Teabag movement would come to a screaching halt." Apr 21, 10 4:47 PM

Wow..........North of Hwy, that puts this into perspective!" Apr 21, 10 9:08 PM

Big Fresh......What I want to know from the Teabaggers is where do THEY want the cuts to come from??? One thing is screaming about tax-cuts it is another thing to say where to make the program cuts, and be more specific about what programs they would cut?
Would the Tea-Party movement like to cut out medicaid or Social Security?
How about defense, the biggest line in the budget?
I do not hear any of that from this "movement".

" Apr 22, 10 10:57 PM

10%
The military???
Medicare???
Social Security???

I hope to see Tea Party signs that say, "Cut my medicare!!" or "Cut My Social Security!"" Apr 23, 10 10:08 AM

Well, does anyone want to add to bigfresh and give an opinion on what to cut out of government?
Double....what about the military? Should we cut there? How about madicaid....Social Security?
If you Tea Party are so upset about paying your taxes, what services will you cut?" Apr 23, 10 7:25 PM

Yea...Hoover tried to cut taxes to get us out of the economic crisis and it failed.
The economic stimulis of 09' averted an economic disaster. (Which you would have blamed on Obama)
Now, back to my question....
WHAT PROGRAMS WOULD YOU TEA_PEOPLE CUT?" Apr 23, 10 9:21 PM

Officials want to use Southampton Town's Community Preservation Fund to save Stony Brook Southampton

This is an excellent facility and it should be preserved and used for the people of the town. It is one of our important institutions out here.
SUNY Southampton...I like it. " Apr 23, 10 9:34 PM

Local Tea Party movement holds two rallies on Tax Day

Ok...now wer are getting somewhere. The programs would not ammount to much, including health care...that is going to save money over time.
For the record, you all are not willing to cut medicaid, Social Security or the military!
Quid pro quo.....as far as taxes. Most of the national debt was in place before 08' and the stimulis averted economic disaster and that would have cost far more. So yes...I am willing to pay more, but the odd thing is is that being in the middle class I got a tax cut last year.
Hey where were all of you guys when we went into Iraq? We had to borrow all of that money....how quickly the right forgets." Apr 24, 10 7:49 AM

Hey guys remember that healthcare was bankrupting America! That is why we have a new health care LAW. The insurance companies are sapping the nation dry. (Individuals, families, companies and municipalities) Before this law, people with out insurance were going to emergency rooms and getting treated and the insurace companies charge the rest of us for the bill and their profit.
And you all are out there waving flags on behalf of the insurance companies.
" Apr 24, 10 9:38 PM

C-A wrote: "Whether he had them or not is irrelevent. He was a danger to the civilized world and pledged to work toward getting them after sanctions ended. Removing him was a good thng."
So under that philosophy, we should invade N. Korea? Admit it Iraq was follly and we have and will spend more on Bush's mistake with Iraq than we will on a health care program to take care of our own people.

C-A wrote, re: cuts in medicaid, Social Security, & Military, "Correct, compassion for the most needy and a strong America is a good thing."
So, you want to cut taxes,but just not the programs that your flag wavers like the most.
I wonder if they would show up to the Tea Party events if they knew that those programs could be cut??
Hmmmmmm???????" Apr 24, 10 9:54 PM

And the Teabaggers are out there waving flags for them and the insurance companies. They want tax-cuts but no cut to their programs.
Again where were all of you when Bush dragged the country into Iraq.
Let's face it, you are using fear and half truths to try and get the Republicans back in control of congress and the White House." Apr 25, 10 11:36 AM

So you all are willing to make cuts in madicaid and Social Security???
hmmmm...do they really want to cut taxes and programs or do they just want a Republican Congress? (Te Party = half truths and fear)
As far as Iraq, if we leave now a civil war starts, and under international law, we are now obligated to rebuild the country and see to the safty of the people since we were the ones who invaded them.
Billions of dollars.....where were all of those Tea Baggers then, was that fiscally responsible? Not to mention the 4000+ Americans who died there.
Shame on you all and your partisan lies and half truths!" Apr 25, 10 1:37 PM

Yes, and the amazing thing about the Tea Party movement is that most of them are getting government benefits that we are all paying for....but they want other items cut rather than the MONEY that they are getting from the government.The Tea Party movement is nothing more than the militant wing of the Republican Party who want to take control of the nation again.
Where were they and where were you when Bush was driving the nation into the ground?" Apr 25, 10 8:32 PM

Rally held to support push for federal immigration reform

razza....we agree on something. If businesses stop hiring them, they will go home (at no cost to us). There are many Americans who are making lots of money off of the undocumented. Those businesses should be hiring citizens and paying their taxes on those workers.
" May 5, 10 8:28 PM

Let's get our American business owners to stop hiring them! If they have no work, they will go home, and it will not cost the country anything.
When will the business owners own up to their responsibility for this issue.

" May 13, 10 8:20 AM

Your kidding.......right?
It is simple, bif business was not hiring them, they would go home at no cost to the American Taxpayer.
Yes, business should be hiring Americans and paying their taxes on them. Face it, landscapers, contractors of all types, hotels, and resturants do not want them to go home. THey make too much profit off of the cheap labor.
Face facts!" May 13, 10 2:28 PM

Vice President Biden visits Southampton over holiday weekend

Well everyone, I think that we have found a way to keep those annoying helicopters away….just have a dignitary in town. Thank you Mr. Vice President for the quiet that we do not normally get on a holiday weekend due to the helicopter traffic." May 31, 10 3:53 PM

Maybe the teabaggers would agree to cut their medicare and Social Security to help cut taxes and end government control of their lives....and the rest of us would not have to pay those taxes since we will not be seeing the services when it is our time." Jun 2, 10 2:32 PM

Rumor about attack in village is debunked by police

Tom.......Perhaps you could change to a sign that says, "when you hire a non-citizen, you are breaking the law".

Many of you all are blaming the lefties (liberals) for the immigration problem....but it is misplaced. It is business who keeps them here. They are hired by businesses and payed off the books and we pick up the rest......schools, hospitals etc.
Let's make business responsible for this issue....they make enough money from it.

As far as the liberals are concerned, they are humanists who care for people and have little impact on the issue.....lets focus on the landscaping, painting, sheetrock, restaurants, hotels, construction ect.....who are really keeping them here.
If they have no work, they will go home at no cost to the US taxpayer.
