Altschuler will face Bishop in November

The right is scrambling;it hs no plan except t oppose any democrat.
Must be hell being al screechy and scared,to wantto go back to the policis youusedto." Sep 15, 10 9:07 PM

change the constituton,repeal healthcare,get rid of the DoE,the DEC and censor
th media dtosewho disagreewit yu.

the NEW republican party." Sep 15, 10 9:09 PM

That's a load of crap.When policies are explained and described more people agree with a progressive agenda than a conservative one.
We progressives have been around a lot longer than 18 months and will stay here to call out the liars and spinners for the foreseeable future.
I have the feling youhave more of a problem with the president because of his race and political position than anything else;he is not unpopular by any stretch of the imagination except with those who have a deep seated resentment of anything democratic,which you have illustrated here.
Your part of the problem with this country-an ill infrmed right wing idealogue lying to promote divisiveness." Sep 16, 10 8:01 AM

Quite a post coming from someone who has made racially inflammatory statements in the past.But if its convenient for you to flip-flop to appear less prejuidiced,you deserve to be called on it.

" Sep 20, 10 10:18 AM

It isn't the preident who is incompetent,its the republicans in congress who refuse to participate in the legislative process.Ther policies are the same as they were since Reagan,and that's what hs taken s to where we are.
Taxes were cut and regulation was rolled back,and it resulted in the biggest economic crisis since the great depression." Sep 20, 10 10:23 AM

are you ever going to contribute something intellectually coherent to this forum?" Sep 20, 10 10:25 AM

"And the bad Hispanics, all of which are under 30 learned their bad behavior from the Blacks in the USA."

Pretty rascist remark.
the whole quote,for context-

"Riverhead man stabbed to death in front of Hampton Bays Diner
Butts was BLACK, Not Hispanic, Almost all 15 were Black.... I was at the light going to work when It happened.Hispanics had nothing to do with It! show me a Hispanic over 30 that is not working and I bet he is at church or doing his laundry, And the bad Hispanics, all of which are under 30 learned their bad behavior from the Blacks in the USA.When are we going to stop making excuses for these criminals.If i was a hard working person of color I would be even more pissed off that these gang banging rapers were giving me a bad name. When is enough enough. I am sick of pretending these raciest animals are just misunderstood. BS.This time beach girl is right.The dinner has put one over on the town. They have taken advantage of a loop hole in the law. That back room was never intended to be a hip hop club. It was supposed to be a room for party's. When the town tried to shut it down. Mr Valdamas pulled the race card and S.H. buckled to this low class garbage that seems to have taken over our town. Mr Valdamas your sign says Dinner! Not after hours club" May 26, 09 10:27 PM


from the same thread,you claim no racial bias,but choose to name only blacks in your diatribe against black cultual music-

Like i said its not about the color of your skin Its about the lifestyle you lead.It just so happens that the following all have gun charges and felonies 50 cent, snoop,Kanye West,Beanie Sigel,Jay Z,Tupac Shakur,Lil Kim,P Diddy,Dmx,Shyne,Akon,Twisted Black,Chris Brown,TI,Da Brat,Pimp C,Corey Miller,ODB,C-Murder,Mystikal,Slick Rick,Master P,And the list goes on and on.If i was a law abiding AA, I would be the first one to condemn this gangsta rap and all the pain it projects on our community's

The republicans,after regaining congressional dominance after 40 years,used very dirty trick in the book after 1994-Copy ad paste this link to see the damage done by republican control of the budget process since 1994


http://www.ou.edu/special/albertctr/extensions/spring2007/LeLoup.pdf

The republicans profess to be the party of fiscal restraint,but they poved since 1994 they are the party of special interests.Returning them to power will be a return to the republican policies of the past.Historically,everyone does better under the democrats-look it up.
Historically,the republicans have always increased the deficits.Look it up
Now they're being overtaken by a fringe movement of crazies-Palin,Paul,O'Donnel,Angle-people who want to eliminate or change this country into Somalia.Good luck with that.We'll keep the DoE,SS,Medicaid,social programs and cvil rights.The ountry won't roll over for a bunch o fringe radical nutjobs and their supporters."

The debt also soared because Obama added the costs of the two wars to the budget that Bush never figured in.

your entitled to your own opinion,but not your own facts." Sep 21, 10 8:15 AM

sorry don't beleive blogs,especially from the far right wing Heritage Foundation whch is known far its skewered reasonig.
" Sep 21, 10 1:02 PM

Bush funded the war that way because he couldn' get it through the regular legislative process.He also included the costs of the war in his funding of the GWT.
from Politifact-
"
The Office of Managment and Budget in the White House doesn't separate out spending in Iraq from the global war on terror, and even then it tracks only supplemental spending bills and doesn't include money in other federal budgets"

The other culprit was earmarks,which increased tenfold under republican contrlled congress.Let's take a look at what Politifact said about earmarks and Obama's promise to reduce them-


"The high mark was fiscal 2005, the last fiscal year before Democrats won control, when Congress passed bills with approximately 16,000 earmarks, Ellis said.



The conservative Heritage Foundation included a striking chart on earmarks in its Federal Spending by the Numbers 2010 report. It reported a slightly different number of earmarks, at approximately 14,000 earmarks in 2005. But that was the largest number of earmarks between 1991 and 2010, and a significant increase from 1994, when there were fewer than 2,000.


there were several factors at work. Prior to Republican control, Ellis said, Democrats reserved earmarks for committee chairman and other powerful leaders. Under Republicans, more rank-and-file members of Congress were allowed to insert earmarks into bills. The Republicans allowed Democrats to insert earmarks as well, so Democrats were not so quick to criticize what the Republicans were doing, he said.

Getting back to our rating, Obama said that "When these same Republicans – including Mr. Boehner – were in charge, the number of earmarks and pet projects went up, not down." Earmarks increased dramatically between 1995 and 2006, so we find Obama's statement that earmarks went up, not down, to be correct. But he also singles out Boehner by name, when Boehner didn't take any earmarks and wasn't in leadership for most of those years. So we rate Obama's statement Mostly True."

Thogh I will admit that Obaa has added to the debt,the amount of debt left over from Bus and the republican congress is still debted over;all we know for sure is that it is massive." Sep 21, 10 5:39 PM

wrong.
The cost of the war was spread out,some under the GWT,some in defense appropriations bills,some in the supplemental spending bills,conveniently muddying the waters to hide costs.Bush could never justify what he was spending to the American people if he budgeted it-and three of his last four years the congress couldn't come up with a budget on time,despite the rpublicans all being in goosestep.When he was using supplemental bills the republican bobblehead congress was just rubberstamping the bills right through." Sep 21, 10 9:59 PM

Its the people reading,not posting,that we're reaching for." Sep 21, 10 10:01 PM

your exact words-

""And the bad Hispanics, all of which are under 30 learned their bad behavior from the Blacks in the USA"

run away from them if you like.It's a rascist statement." Sep 21, 10 10:09 PM

Congressional race kicks off; candidates trade blows

this is what Bishop has done since January of 2010.
say what you will,but he's done a lot for all of us.

Since the republican tea party hates government so much,why should we vote them in.They have done nothing in thelast two years,and when they were in power,they ignored issues like healthcare.It was more important to them to interfere in the personal decisions a family had to make about a woman in a vegetative state,(Terry Schaivo),try to introduce legislation to prevent same sex marriage and pay for 2 wars on the backs of the American people.Now they say they want government out of our lives,but look at their track record.

Saks Fifth Avenue closes Southampton store this past weekend; Water Mill's Citarella also closed

of course you didn't say that this was a right wing hack organisation that gave every democrat a low rating.

http://www.votesmart.org/issue_rating_detail.php?r_id=4234" Oct 6, 10 8:29 AM

We can start with the tea party.I posted the findings of two different news organisations in the forum area about it-one from CBS News and the New York Times,the other from the University of Washington.Neither is flattering to the tea party.

from the NTLC website-

"Our Partners
NTLC and our foundation, The National Tax Limitation Foundation (NTLF), have organized numerous conferences and seminars around the Nation on critical issues, and we have participated as speakers and panelists in meetings sponsored by others. Uhler speaks regularly at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, sponsored by the American Conservative Union (ACU), on whose board he has served for years. NTLC’s operating philosophy has always been to partner with other groups and individuals in the accomplishment of mutual goals"

Checked out their board of directors-
all ultra-conservative support.Sounds like a far right wing group to me.
" Oct 6, 10 10:09 PM

What are you talking about?The closing of Saks in Southampton is the most important issue of this time?" Oct 6, 10 10:12 PM

That's a big steaming pile.
A white supremiscist helped write Aryanzona's immigration law.
Supremascism is all over the right wing.
-The attack on education, particularly the elimination of the Departmnt of Education will limit or eliminate low cost loans for the college bound,limiting opportunity for higher education to the rich who can afford it. If your poor or a minority,you'll have to depend on private loans for college at 15-25% interest.It will leave standards to be determined by individual states,making qualifying for some colleges difficult for some students. They want to eliminate Affirmative Action programs which directly affect minorities.
-The right wants to eliminate SS and medicare,thrusting millions into poverty-many of them seniors;it will also affect single parents,the disabled and children.
-The right wants to privatise everything they can-does a recent fire in Tennesee say anything about privatised services?
-The right wants to repeal the healthcare legislation,yet is now saying it wants to introduce many of the provisions already in there.They refused to participate yet now are trying to sound reasonable.Given their track record,we already know what to expect.they are not trustworthy.
-The right rails against the rescue of GM and Chrysler,yet hundreds of thousands of jobs were saved and for those who did not hear,GM announced today that they are not only solvent,but adding jobs and opening factories.
The right has become extremist in their ideology.The tea party has taken over the republican party and wants to impose a radical agenda on the country.People are waking up to it,though.They see how crazy these people are." Oct 7, 10 10:14 PM

Who is donating to the republicans now?
we don't know because activist conservative judges on the supreme court have allowed donations by big corporations and outside interests and not required disclosure.Rupert Murdoch donated $1m to the republicans.Foxcorp also donated large amounts to republicans;this is beside the fact that Fox has almost every person considering a run for the republican nomination in 2012 on their payroll.Or has nobody noticed?

we need publically funded elections.Get the special interest money out of politics." Oct 7, 10 10:21 PM

From the above article-

"As for the Hampton Bays debate, the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons said its members tried to secure a commitment from Mr. Altschuler’s campaign for several weeks before they were finally denied via a phone message on Friday."

Yes,how many days are in another two years?" Oct 10, 10 11:50 PM

from the AP-
"NEW YORK (AP) - New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino has told Orthodox Jewish leaders that there's "nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual."

"A spokesman for Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo said Paladino's comments demonstrated "a stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality."

"He also said young children shouldn't be exposed to gay culture, and singled out pride parades with a description of marchers wearing "Speedos and grinding against each other."

It's "disgusting" and "a terrible thing," Paladino said Monday on NBC's "Today" show.

You can spin it any way you like,he made the statements and shows a basic contempt for tolerance and equality.

As far as voting with the party,you do realise that the republicans have voted together 99% of the time over the last few years,but that's okay when it comes to voting against veterans,the elderly,education and the economy." Oct 11, 10 10:34 AM

as far as taxes going down,you do realise that taxes are lower than they have been in years,don't you?Apparently not.
If all the spending is stopped you'll be complaining because of the loss of services.Clinton balanced the budget,but it was the republicans who went out of control. The tea party and the republicans have said that they will open investigations on Obama-more wasteful spending being promised by the republicans.If they start investigations,they won't be doing the peoples' business,just wasting taxpayer money like they did when they had thei jihad against Clinton for years and came up with nothing to show for it."

This is a lie-
"Do the liberals want automatic citizenship for those who entered the country illegally? The answer is yes. "
The dems and liberals support a path to citizenship-The Dream Act was originally proposed by Republicans who withdrew thir support when it was re-introduced by the democrats.


This is from the democratic party platform-
"Path for undocumented aliens to earn citizenship
We will extend the promise of citizenship to those still struggling for freedom. Today’s immigration laws do not reflect our values or serve our security, and we will work for real reform. The solution is not to establish a massive new status of second-class workers; that betrays our values and hurts all working people. Undocumented immigrants within our borders who clear a background check, work hard and pay taxes should have a path to earn full participation in America. We will hasten family reunification for parents and children, husbands and wives, and offer more English-language and civic education classes so immigrants can assume all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. As we undertake these steps, we will work with our neighbors to strengthen our security so we are safer from those who would come here to harm us. We are a nation of immigrants, and from Arab-Americans in California to Latinos in Florida, we share the dream of a better life in the country we love.

"•Right-wing foundations funding includes: Bradley, Scaife, Koch, Olin, Earhart, Castle Rock, and JM Foundations"

"A package of pro-growth tax cuts, designed by the NCPA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ..."

The same Chamber of Commerce now soliciting foreign funds and channeling them to republican candidates.

NCPA Senior Fellow Bruce Bartlett's proposal for an across-the-board tax cut became the centerpiece of Bob Dole's 1996 presidential campaign and the focal point of the recent pro-growth approach to tax cuts. Bartlett's proposal also became the centerpiece of President Bush's tax cut proposal."


"•"The repeal by Congress of the estate tax last year (vetoed by President Clinton) and again by the House of Representatives this year reflects the continued work of the NCPA. At the request of congressional leadership, the NCPA produced a policy backgrounder on the case for abolishing death taxes. A later NCPA study on this issue was released on Capitol Hill, timed to coincide with the Senate debate on the issue. This year, the issue is again before the Congress, with a president who strongly favors repeal."
The right wants the poor and middle class to 'pull itself up by it's bootstraps' yet that doesn't apply to the rich and the children of the rich.Generational wealt and the development of an aristocracy is their goal.

Reaganomics was a failure.
Revenues increased,but so did deficits.It caused him to raise taxes in his second term.

"Yes, revenues did increase by $474.1 billion dollars during the Reagan 8-year term of office, but each and every year resulted in a budget deficit and by the end of his 8-year term Ronald Reagan had increased the federal debt by almost $1.7 trillion dollars - 3.5 times the amount the revenues increased"

His policies increased the poverty rate-
"The number of Americans below the poverty level increased from 29.272 million in 1980 to 31.745 million in 1988, which means that, as a percentage of the total population, it remained almost stationary, from 12.95% in 1980 to 13% in 1988.[20] The poverty level for people under the age of 18 increased from 11.543 million in 1980 (18.3% of all child population) to 12.455 (19.5%) in 1988.[21] In addition, the situation of low income groups was affected by the reduction of social spending. Inequality also increased. The share of total income going to the 5% highest-income households grew from 16.5% in 1980 to 18.3% in 1988 and the share of the highest fifth increased from 44.1% to 46.3% in same years. In contrast, the share of total income of the lowest fifth fell from 4.2% in 1980 to 3.8% in 1988 and the second poorest fifth from 10.2% to 9.6%.[22]"

"National debt more than tripled from 900 billion dollars to 2.8 trillion dollars during Reagan's tenure"

factcheck.com is skeptical of poll results because polls only reac those with landlines-

Reasons to be Skeptical


We doubt that this study will be the last word on this subject, and we think the results of the Pew study include some good reasons to be somewhat skeptical of polling results in general. For one thing, the study illustrates that cell-only users tend to be very different from the landline sample. In the Pew study, the cell-only users tended to be:

•Young: 46 percent of the cell-only sample was in the 18 to 29 age group, compared with 12 percent for landline users.


•Male: Men made up 61 percent of the cell-only sample but only 48 percent of the landline sample.


•Less White: 19 percent of the cell-only sample was black, versus 11 percent for the landline sample. Asians made up 5 percent of the cell-only sample, versus 1 percent of the landline sample.


•More Hispanic: Hispanics (who can be of any race) were 13 percent of the cell-only sample compared with 6 percent of the landline sample.

and.....

Poll-takers apply various statistical manipulations to their survey results in an attempt to compensate for those who are missed in phone surveys. That task is becoming more difficult as more Americans do without hard-wired phones, giving the wise citizen one more reason not to put too much weight on any particular finding from a telephone poll.

"None of this speaks to the lopsided distribution of the benefits of Reagan-era economic growth. Investors made out during the 1980s, while workers lost out. After seeing their investments lose value during the 1970s, shareholders enjoyed real returns (i.e., adjusted for inflation) in the 1980s that rivaled those of the next decade's stock market bubble and far outdistanced the returns of the 1960s. Real weekly wages for nonsupervisory workers, on the other hand, took a beating, declining even more quickly than they had during the 1970s. Today, the average real earnings of nonsupervisory workers remain far below those of 30 years ago, despite healthy wage gains in the second half of the 1990s expansion, when unemployment rates dropped toward 4%. "

his tax cuts-
"The results never came close to measuring up to the supply-side rhetoric. For starters, the tax cuts busted the federal budget. The federal deficit ballooned from 2.7% of GDP in 1980 to 6% of GDP in 1983, the largest peacetime deficit in history, and was still 5% of GDP in 1986. Tax revenues did pick up, especially after the 1983 payroll tax increase kicked in, reducing the deficit somewhat. Still, tax revenues grew far more slowly over than the 1980s business cycle (2.5% from 1979 to 1989) than they did in the 1990s business cycle (4.1% from 1989 to 2000). "

the CBO agrees-

http://cbo.gov/ftpdocs/87xx/doc8711/12-6-Immigration.pdf

And the claim that immigrants are taking jobs away from Americans? Well, actually, the Immigration Policy Center says that immigration - either legal or illegal - doesn't cause high unemployment. They point out that if immigrants took jobs away from American citizen, then you'd have the highest unemployment rates where there are the highest numbers of immigrants - but that's not the case. Here's where the Immigration Policy Center explains all this:

http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/just-facts/immigration-reform-and-job-growth

Most of the ianti-immigration nformation comes from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), both founded by the same person who has ties to some pretty rascist groups.I don't think people want to get 'facts' on immigration from any organisation that is willing to mislead the public with misinformation."

"The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which an unskilled person makes poor decisions and reaches erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes.[1] The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority.

"A cognitive bias is the human tendency to make systematic errors in certain circumstances based on cognitive factors rather than evidence.

Cognitive biases are a common outcome of human thought, and often drastically skew the reliability of anecdotal and legal evidence.
