Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School In Riverhead To Close In June

This decision by the Diocese has just confirmed what I already knew. The Catholic church and the Catholic education system on Long Island and throughout the country are a big, corrupt business....that's all. This is nothing against our religion or faith. Most, if not all of us, made the decision to place our children in Mercy BECAUSE of our faith. The fact that we, the parents and students, were notified by a voice message directing us to view an email in regards to the closing was appalling. No public meeting? No public forum so the parents, students and faculty can talk through these issues to possibly find a solution? Just a simple email?? Atrocious!!
These poor children and faculty already had to endure a school year long of having construction done to their school while trying to study. Jackhammering and construction every day and the students didn't complain, they persevered. And this is the thanks they get? 3 months before school ends? SHAME!" Mar 13, 18 12:02 PM

Anyone else notice the fact that many members of the clergy on Long Island are driving around in $80,000 cars and living in multi-million dollar homes?? The pope was recently quoted as saying he wants to look into clergy members "living the life of pharaoh". It's very frowned upon, but yet I'm witness to it every once in awhile. Take a look around. Open your eyes and realize that the catholic church and the people that run it are corrupt and hypocritical!!!" Mar 16, 18 1:36 PM

Southampton Town Leaders Accuse Zeldin Of Making 'Misleading' Comments About Hampton Bays During White House Visit

Love Gowdy. But I think he's done with politics and government. " Mar 16, 18 1:45 PM

Are you really quoting John Brennan?

FACT: "An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s."

FACT: He voted for a communist party candidate for POTUS during the Colad War

FACT: He studied in Saudi Arabia and and traveled to Medina (a place that only Muslims pilgrimage to)

FACT: McCabe got what he deserved by spying on American people

FACT: Others will follow and this scandal will blow up in the dems faces and make Watergate look like a trip to Great Adventure....

Oh I forgot...Liberals don't like FACTS!! Go sell crazy somewhere else...

Parents Vow To Fight Catholic High School's Closure

St Anthony's is run by the Franciscan Brothers, not the RC Diocese. That's why they're still in business....and going strong. No comparison there. The Diocese is still paying for molesting priests and Bishop Barres' Mercedes and mansion in Nassau County. Those things are far more important than just a few hundred teenagers education and future. Disgrace!" Mar 21, 18 10:41 PM

Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School In Riverhead To Close In June

Hey Hambone, this is the second thread on this topic that you have thrown in your negative opinions. It's not simple math. This isn't just a subtraction or division problem. It's a lot more complicated. You say "up the enrollment" but the Diocese never put in any effort towards recruitment/marketing. "Up the tuition" could've been a possibility...but it wasn't offered. You sound like you work for the Diocese or the church in some capacity. The other thread you wrote something along the lines of "get over it". Children and families are very hurt by this decision. Show a little compassion, because the only simple math here is your 2 cents not adding up...." Mar 22, 18 6:30 PM

UPDATE: East Quogue $8.4 Million Bond Vote Passes Wednesday

Realistic...you should do more research before you post. A good chunk of that money is going towards a new security booth and video surveillance. Safety is ALWAYS first...especially in these affluent neighborhoods. The big cities across America don't seem to have this mass shooting problem. Sure, here and there you get a homicide but it's usually caused between a two or three party rift. Take a look at the mass shootings. Most, if not all, are in affluent suburbs. And why would anyone in the Quogue area complain about taxes anyway. You guys get away with murder. 3 million dollar mansions with an annual property tax of $3,000? Who cares if it goes up? I think they can afford it, no?" Mar 22, 18 10:40 PM

Not getting into semantics with you. You know what I mean by "mass shootings" . I mean several victims. Columbine, Parkland, etc. Not quite the city." Mar 23, 18 5:16 PM

And lets not forget West Nickel Mines, Marysville Pilchuck High School...and Sandy Hook. Maybe not affluent, sans Sandy Hook...but definitely not the city. " Mar 23, 18 5:22 PM

Try this on for size. From Wiki:
A mass shooting is an incident involving MULTIPLE victims of firearms-related violence. The United States' Congressional Research Service acknowledges that there is not a broadly accepted definition, and defines a "public mass shooting" as one in which FOUR OR MORE selected indiscriminately, not including the perpetrator, are killed, echoing the FBI definition of the term "mass murder". However, according to the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act of 2012, signed into law in January 2013, a mass shooting is defined as a shooting with at least THREE victims, excluding the perpetrator. Another unofficial definition of a mass shooting is an event involving the shooting (not necessarily resulting in death) of FIVE OR MORE people (sometimes FOUR) with no cooling-off period. Related terms include school shooting and massacre.

So looks like....YOU'RE wrong." Mar 24, 18 1:43 AM

East End Residents Participate In Marches Protesting Gun Violence

You're right. If it doesn't fit the liberal agenda....you won't hear about it, period." Mar 25, 18 1:35 PM

Guns kill people like spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat. Take away guns, they'll use knives. Take away knives, they'll use box cutters. So then your argument is "well guns will kill 10 people and knives will only kill 4". So what's the argument? People being mowed down in cars too. The insanity will not end. We are living amongst sick, psychopathic freaks and there's really nothing you can do about it.
" Mar 25, 18 1:41 PM

This is just like the BLM/Hands Up, Don't Shoot movements. Very similar in the fact that they are driven hard by the liberal media and the liberal social media platform. These millennials cannot think critically and they cannot think for themselves. They are driven by the agendas of said media and their teachers who hide behind their liberal desks. No...this is not a tin foil hat conspiracy. This is the truth. The entire BLM movement was based on lies. Michael Brown was a FELON. That is a fact. He had 4 prior felonies before the shooting incident where the media lied again and pushed the Hands Up Don't Shoot agenda. Multiple witnesses (most of whom were black) said NOBODY had their hands up. LIES!!! Shield your children from the liberal lying agenda and question their teachers early and often."

I have an off-topic question related to Westhampton Beach High School/Middle School boundaries. Can anyone here explain the street boundaries north, south, east and west for the Westhampton High & Middle Schools...specifically in the East Quogue area? The school district maps I found are undefined for East Quogue. It only states that EQ Elementary School are in the district. So what boundaries in East Quogue attend Westhampton High School, and which parts attend Hampton Bays High School? Very confusing..." Mar 27, 18 7:51 PM

Yup...and Obama loved America like OJ loved Nicole" Mar 30, 18 11:57 PM

JuneBug, you sound like a bougie debutant who thinks all the ills of society will be handled by law enforcement. Not every person who owns a gun is a vigilante. Most are law abiding citizens who look out for their fellow man. Thank the Lord that Hillary was not voted in. Whew. That whiney old hag is still making excuses as to why she lost. She can't admit that this country took a stand against the ultra left wing nuts. Obama swung that pendulum way too far to the left and now you libbies are all sad about it...including Hillary. News flash: Trump will be re-elected. Fake news doesn't work on us." Mar 31, 18 12:04 AM

Who cares? This all happened before Trump took office. Those hoes like sleeping with powerful men. Now they want to cry about it? I feel bad for Melania but Bill's stains are still in the oval office. Apples and oranges.
Obama on the other hand, created a racial divide in this country that we may never recover from. He pitted races against each other, crapped on police officers and took sides with social justice warriors who liked to fan the flames. This is why Trump won. The American people had enough...and he WILL win again." Mar 31, 18 6:20 PM

Not always indicative." Apr 1, 18 1:34 PM

Sometimes when a wife "checks out", the husband becomes unhappy. But instead of getting a divorce for a myriad of reasons (financial, children, etc), the husband cheats to find happiness...even after counseling doesn't help. Not saying it's right...but sometimes these things happen. Doesn't make the person "bad". Stupid and selfish maybe, but not bad. Not everyone must have the "partridge family" marriage like you do, Fore1gn." Apr 1, 18 3:32 PM

A race problem that OBAMA started. It took over 1 year in office for Junebug to blame Trump for a problem HE DID NOT START! I don't know about everyone on the east end here but I happen to work in a place where there are a lot of minorities. During the last few years of Obama's term...my workplace was unbearable. Blacks vs. Whites every day due to Obama's politics and words. Holder, DeBlasio, Lynch, and that rotten Baltimore's mayor's words didn't help either. THIS IS NOT ON TRUMP YOU LIBBIES....DON'T EVEN GO THERE!!!!!" Apr 4, 18 5:37 PM

Here's my response: Winjin Liu and Rafael Ramos. Refuted...and I don't need opinions...I defend with FACTS!" Apr 4, 18 6:24 PM

I love Heather McDonald. She's a "right-winger too". But there are no conspiracy theories in this passage. Just FACTS. Again, highhatsize...this is now the second or third time I'm producing facts. You just resort to name calling and bashing the right (a typical, lame, and predictable tactic) used by the left ALL the time.
Taken from an article a few years ago.Here she is:

The more we learn about the latest assassination of police officers, this time resulting in the deaths of three in Baton Rouge, the more it appears to be the outcome of the political and media frenzy that followed the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile two weeks ago.
That frenzy further amplified the dangerously false narrative that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today.
President Barack Obama bears responsibility for the lethal spread of that narrative. In a speech from Poland just hours before five officers were assassinated in Dallas on July 7, Obama misled the nation about policing and race, charging officers nationwide with preying on blacks because of the color of their skin.
Obama rolled out a litany of junk statistics to prove that the criminal justice system is racist. Blacks were arrested at twice the rate of whites, he complained, and get sentences almost 10 percent longer for the same crime. Missing was any mention of the massive racial differences in criminal offending and criminal records that fully account for arrest rates and sentence lengths. (Blacks, for example, commit homicide at eight times the rate of whites and Hispanics combined.) Instead, Obama chalked up the disparities to "biases, some conscious and unconscious that have to be rooted out ... across our criminal justice system."
Then five Dallas officers were gunned down out of race hatred and cop hatred. Did Obama shelve his incendiary rhetoric? No, he doubled down, claiming that black parents were justified in fearing that their children could be killed by a cop whenever they walk "out the door." This rebuke was stunning. Obama was fully on notice that the hatred of cops was reaching homicidal levels. And yet his commitment to this crusade against phantom police racism trumped considerations of prudence and safety, on the one hand, and decent respect for the fallen, on the other.
The media bear equal responsibility for the ongoing carnage. The press immediately slotted the shootings of Sterling and Castile into the racist-cop paradigm, though the facts about what the officers saw and whether the victims were reaching for their guns were unknown.
Even before this latest attack on the police, officers across the country have been reeling under the prejudice directed against them. A police trainer meeting with officers on July 7, hours before the Dallas carnage, reported to me that the cops were "out of their minds that the default [in the Castile and Sterling shootings] is racism, without one iota of fact."
Officers have already been backing off of proactive policing under the constant charge that they are racist for making pedestrian stops and enforcing public-order laws in black neighborhoods.

In June, I spoke with police officers in Dallas about the city's big spike in homicides this year. The officers chalked it up to de-policing. "Officers are now leery of doing their job," a cop who runs warrants in the high-crime Five Points area in Dallas' Vickery Meadows neighborhood told me. "Why make stops in the first place?"
We are quickly reaching the worst days of the nightmare 1960s, when it seemed that the very foundation of society was breaking apart. The difference between the 1960s and today is that the hatred of law enforcement and of whites is being stoked by the highest reaches of the establishment.

It may be too late to stop this fire from spreading. But Obama has one more chance to try to put it out. He failed that opportunity in his remarks hours after the Baton Rouge carnage, delivering instead an anodyne call to heal "our divisions" and discard "inflammatory rhetoric thrown around to advance an agenda."
Sorry, Mr. President, those who tell the truth about crime and policing are not part of the problem. The killing of cops is furthered exclusively by those peddling a false narrative that cops harbor lethal bias toward blacks.
Obama should call for the Black Lives Matter movement to fold its tent -- and he himself should start telling the truth about inner-city crime.

UPDATE: Remsenburg Teenager Charged With Vandalizing Westhampton Beach High School

Looks like the liberal 27East police shut down the comment section on this topic. Maybe they should've removed the very first comment here on this article which was the most ignorant of all and which started the rest of the political back and forth.

In today's society with social media, it's almost impossible to get away with something like this. I knew he would get caught.

Maybe they can create a new safe-space room at the high school where he can play with play-doh every time he gets upset again. Whenever he feels like he's going to get angry or rage, they can offer the room up for nappy time. Dim the lights low and have someone rub his back.
I say he lucky Cuomo raised the age of felony convictions to 18. If this kid did this a few years ago he wouldn't be tried as a CHILD. He would've been tried as an ADULT. Oh those silly liberals....what will they think of next." Apr 14, 18 10:20 PM

As I stated earlier....LEGALLY he's treated as a child (or juvenile). He must be 18 to be tried as an adult. Cuomo just changed the law with his liberal (Raise the Age) campaign. A few months to a year ago, he would've been tries as an adult. He's one lucky "kid"!" Apr 16, 18 10:50 PM

Here we go again with the gun control weirdos. Gun-Free School Zones Acts do not prevent emotionally disturbed people from stalking with guns...period. The objective is to scare, intimidate, and have a sense of power over the victim. Doesn't matter one bit where the act of stalking/gun toting is taking place. Lee Zeldin has nothing to do with it and the school administrators have nothing to do with it. This is a sick, psychopath who obviously doesn't know right from wrong.

SlimeAlive gets the award for "Best 27East Filibusterer". Typical liberal move and one that's old and tired. Suppose this quack didn't own a gun and showed up to the school in a rented van (Toronto anyone)? Just sitting and waiting for his perfect opportunity to mow down his target and a few others. Sounds the same as a gun, no? Just with a different tool. The problem is crazy people...not guns. Like I've said before: Guns kill people like spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat! " Apr 23, 18 9:59 PM

It wasn't a problem 20 years ago because 20 years ago nobody cared about political correctness, group think and extreme ideology. You sheeple have been tought how to think, when to think and why to think. What's so wrong with thinking for yourself and thinking pragmatically? A bigger problem than guns in this country is the liberal takeover of our education system across the board. From K all the way through college. Everyone is taught to think a certain way and if you don't, you're ostracized with repercussions. Sick liberals. " Apr 23, 18 10:30 PM

Fox beats every news channel in ratings for every time slot...every day. I'm not the minority here. I'm able to think for myself. I voted for Obama in 2008. Did Fox think for me then? I didn't vote for him in his second term because by the time elections came around, he drove the wedge between whites and blacks, civilian and military/police and poor vs rich. Unfortunately he won, but Trump took over because Obama swung that pendulum way too far to the left. Was this Fox? Of course not...but I wouldn't have expected much more of a logical answer.
