Rumor about attack in village is debunked by police

If they were being given visas,they were being given permission to enter the country legally.It was the consulate worker who was corrupt.
But she was killed by a rival drug gang,and in Mexico,so it kind of moots your point,doesn't it?Relects more on the other side of the border.

After 9/11, we had the perfect opportunity to do something about the borders and no one would have opposed it.Bush did nothing.Now the right is blaming thye 'liberals' for it,which is par for the course,since it won't take responsibility for the missed opportunity to actually attack the problem in 2001.
Anything proposed by Obama will be opposed,and we know why.The rascism is perpetuated by the same people on this forum,whether its against the Shinnecocks,Obama or the Latinos lining North Sea Road.Of course th'll claim "I'm not a rascist!" but all anyone has to do is read their rants and its right there.

It isn't rocket science,there's a lot to agree about;but we need to get past the partisan sh*t first.We also need to strip the issue and come to terms with the fact that we all will have to make concessions and compromises;what you posted makes sense;theres a lot to it all and part of it will be things like continuing to teach english language skills but allowing some of the teaching to be done in Spanish,since concepts that are already difficult to understand would only become more complicated if taught in a language one hasn't yet mastered.There are lots of issues to address,but I do agree that a path to citizenship is necessary.At least that will assure a handle on the illegals already here,and casts a shadow of suspicion on those who don't honestly want to become a citizen.
The employment problem is much more complicated;Job creation in some new fields need to funded and encouraged;renewable and alternate energy systems,etc. We will still be dependent on oil because our transportation system is based on it,but,again,developing mass transit systems and utilising existing rail systems can help eliminate some traffic congestion,thus reducing some oil consumption.Many years ago,I remember freight being delivered by rail and distributed by smaller,local trucking companies.
These are all ideas that need to bediscussed and debated,I don't have all the answers,but if we can reach at least some common ground (like we did on this topic) it leaves room for discussion instead of bickering,which doesn't do any of us any good.

Andre Bauer of South Carolina said that about the poor.

"Republican Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer of the bible-thumping state of South Carolina revealed his very special version of compassionate conservatism during a recent speech to his constituents, when he compared poor people on welfare to stray cats and dogs. Providing hungry people with an “ample food supply,” says Bauer only encourages the great unwashed of our society to breed more poor wretches whom the state is forced to feed. "" Jul 10, 10 8:23 PM

I would need to see proof of "families on welfare for generations".The suggestion that we limit people from 'breeding' sounds more than a little like neutering the poor because they are undesirable and need to be either controlled or eliminated,which is a dangerous suggestion." Jul 11, 10 7:30 AM

I understand what your saying;I didn't mean to come across in a negative way,there are more than a few on these forums who have extreme positions to my right;I am not afraid of being called a 'lefty' or a 'liberal',as defined by JFK.

Wal street and corporate America have driven the working class down since Reagans' time at least;wages have been flat for years,even Greenspan when he addressed the fed at one point appeared proud of the fact that wages are suppressed because of fear created by corporate entities.All news and advertising is geared toward benefitting business,creating an aristocracy and an impovershed class while squeezing the middle class out of existence.
Clinton had the workfare program to employ welfare recipients,but it was ended;we need someting like that again to employ people,maybe working in community service jobs-working at the dump,senior citizen centers,etc.
A big part of the immigration problem in this area is that the illegals are taking some jobs from the construction industry that pay well enough to help modestly support a family;skilled trades are safe but ewntering their fields is tough.
I support apath to citizenship,but we must require strict adherence and maybe have benchmarks.We'll never be able to just ship them all out no matter how angry people are;there are too many and the logistics are too complicated." Jul 11, 10 8:11 PM

Schneiderman forgoes congressional run

I've worked with him and he has helped me on two occasions,one with a healthcare issue with an insurance company and another with an issue with education.If he has never helped you,you've never asked him to." Jul 12, 10 3:08 PM

Southampton School District looks to hire HS principal and assistant principal by end of July

the school also fired the Director of Pupil services (the Head of Special Education ) I woinder why they aren't talking about that?I think the press is purposely ignoring that;Barbara Brown was let go last week without explanation.

Over the last 2-3 years,they fired two Special Education administrators,a principal,an assistant principal and the autism consultant resigned.Adam Fine had a background in special education as well.Sounds like the school district is executing a purge,and its directed at the special education department.

She was illegally photographing a military installation.If she was a Muslim,you'd be screaming to hang her.Law enforcement did the right thing,they detained her until after she was investigated." Jul 30, 10 7:52 PM

This happened at the time there were Tea party rallies with people bringing guns to them and protesting heavily against the government.They caught her taking pictures of amilitary installation, and because of the fact she had guns in the car and apparently isn't wrapped too tight,they arrested her.
I say they did the right thing;they were protecting the airmen at the base.
Are they not worth protecting?" Jul 30, 10 8:11 PM

this isn't a 2nd amendment issue,as much as you would like to make into one.
She was arrested bcause she was tresspassing and taking pictures of a military installation.The fact that she had guns in her car,legally or not,complicated the issue.The woman was stupid,but keep defending her." Jul 30, 10 8:57 PM

I didn't attack her right have guns.I ststed that she demonstrated poor judgement. If guns compensate for someones' personal shortcomings,they should do all they can to prove that having guns hides their faults." Jul 30, 10 9:07 PM

Interesting that this surfaced today-

"Late on a Saturday night two weeks ago, an unemployed carpenter packed his mother's Toyota Tundra with guns and set off for San Francisco with a plan to kill progressives.

When California Highway Patrol officers stopped him on an interstate in Oakland for driving erratically, Byron Williams, wearing body armor, fired at police with a 9mm handgun, a shotgun and a .308-caliber rifle with armor-piercing bullets, Oakland police say. Shot and captured after injuring two officers, Williams, on parole for bank robbery, told investigators that he wanted "to start a revolution" by "killing people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU," according to a police affidavit. His mother, Janice, told the San Francisco Chronicle that her son had been watching television news and was upset by "the way Congress was railroading through all these left-wing agenda items"

Sounds like Berlin in the 40's to me. Innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around. Just to clarify, it is their job to protect and serve, not illegally detain and trample constitutional rights. "

where do you stand on illegal immigration? Would you apply the same standard?" Jul 31, 10 8:34 PM

Is it a question of national security?
"It was news to me, but military bases and nuclear facilities can restrict photographs – even from the outside area. Even if you’re not trespassing onto government land, taking pictures of these installations could be illegal.

Don’t even try. We’re not talking misdemeanor illegal. You might be shipped off and never seen again. Yep, crazy illegal!"

Vice President Joe Biden vacations in Southampton

There is excessive spending in Washington.
We could start by cutting the defense budget-there's no need to spend more than the next 20 countries combined on defense while the people of this country are struggling,losing their homes and unemployed.
Start by cutting defense and reirecting that money toward infrastructure,education and healthcare, all of which have problems of their own.These are issues that will benefit everyone for the long term;when you make a bullet,it is used once and gone forever.Invest back into improving the country and stop wasting our damn money on being the worlds police force.
With the savings,we could even releive some of the tax burden on the middle class." Aug 1, 10 7:14 AM

"The pants wetting gun hater is you though."

"Pants wetting is rational now?"
!

"You are defending stupidity, you are defending the the police who arrested her and charged her ineffectually. That seems to be a fairly stupid move as the lawsuit reflects. "

"How do you know so much about planning terrorist attacks? "

"Pot calling the kettle much elliot? How can you be so foolish as to accuse me of do something which you yourself had just done a little over 3 hours prior? "

"Except people who think like you! "

"How thick are you?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

after all that was said,the woman was engaging in suspicious activity at a military installation;though she was released,the police were justified in detaining her for observation because she could have been a threat to the safety of the servicemen.

Tea Party Meet the Candidates Night

The tea party is long on rhetoric and short on details.
How are they going to cut taxes further? What progrms are they going to change,cut or de-fund?
Don't try the terror suspects? What about the 4th,5th,6th and 8th amendments?
As far as the democrats are concerned, they've been opposed and stalled by the republicans through filibustering for the last 2 years.How many republicans actually voted for bills that were designed to try to improve the present conditions? (actually two-the senators from Maine have crossed party lines several times,and been villified for it)
The Tea Party has presented itself as an alternative,but the proposals they've made are wek and they suffer the stigmatism of the most vocal radicalism this country has seen in its history. " Aug 12, 10 7:38 AM

" Aug 12, 10 8:08 PM

I didn't know google was a viscious wing of the mass media.Anybody can look at any story about the tea party and find ridiculous positons.Attacking the media and villifying liberals has been done before,and the world rejected it.
Anybody can google the Tea party and see the positions they advocate;Rand Paul wants to give businesses the right to discriminate,Michelle Bachman wants to spend the next few years litigating against the democrats at he expense of the country,Sharon Angle only wants the media to talk about issues she chooses-this is not what America wants.
Candidates who call themselves Tea Partiers have expessed positions, shall we say, a bit out of the mainstream. Bachman,Palin,Angle,Paul-all of them have shown interest in policies that would actually diminish the well-being of the country.
The a party is a ruse to get the republicans back in power;a fringe element supporting republican policies and trying to benefit from the movement of change." Aug 13, 10 7:44 AM

Congressional candidate Cox joins anti-abortion activists in protest at Bishop's office

They want less government-unless your a woman,gay or against infecting education with religion." Aug 28, 10 8:26 PM

The only time abortion is paid for with tax dollars is in cases of rape or incest.

The Hyde Amendment

After Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion in 1973, Medicaid covered abortion care without restriction. In 1976, Representative Henry Hyde (R-IL) introduced an amendment that later passed to limit federal funding for abortion care. Effective in 1977, this provision, known as the Hyde Amendment, specifies what abortion services are covered under Medicaid.

Over the past two decades, Congress has debated the limited circumstances under which federal funding for abortion should be allowed. For a brief period of time, coverage included cases of rape, incest, life endangerment, and physical health damage to the woman. However, beginning in 1979, the physical health exception was excluded, and in 1981 rape and incest exceptions were also excluded.

In September 1993, Congress rewrote the provision to include Medicaid funding for abortions in cases where the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest. The present version of the Hyde Amendment requires coverage of abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life endangerment.

Personal rsponsibility also applies to the father of the child.A woman doesn't get pregnant alone,but she is left that way to face a pregnancy and then told that she should have no choice but to face it alone.
Once the child is born,there are few choices for a woman-healthcare options are limited,there are few facilities for daycare available,employmen opportunities are limited even further.What's left is public assistance,which is under constant attack and threat.

Eliminate SS
Eliminate the DoE
Eliminate Medicare
repeal the healthcare law.
change the consttution (14th amendment)
these aren't extreme positions?
somebody has been using your teapot as a urinal." Sep 4, 10 7:41 PM

Yes,extremist positions.
If SS is eliminated,the disabled who are unable to work and dependent children
in poor families will have no source of income.It isn't only the elderly who depend on SS insurance.

The DoE asures that educational standards are set for the entirecountry;it regulates services and oversees minimum requirements that can be recognised throughout the entire country.Localising education standards would
not only make standards different between regions and states,but can affect differences within local areas by allowing different standards within grades.This would affect students' ability to attain higher education.
The DoE also regulates free education for the poor and the disabled by setting standards to assure that all children are educated appropriately.Removing these standards would cause the education system to resemble pre Brown vs BoE; some schools would be able to offer better standards,creating inequality.

Again,medicare was developed to help the poor and disabled;forcing a voucher system will limit access to medical treatment for a sector of the population that is already at a disadvantage.

Why do all the proposed policies of the tea party target the poor,the disabled and the elderly?

" Sep 5, 10 7:54 PM

The first stimulus was Bush's proposal.
Healthcare reform has been fought over for the last 100 years;its a long way from a 'government takeover' since it leaves healthcare in the hands of private companies.
The auto bailouts were a success;GM and chrysler survived,thousands kept their jobs and the companies have paid back the loans andare now once again profitable.
The Arizona law is unconstitutional because states cannot dictate natinal immigration policy,asper the constitution.

What you just quoted was from the Declaration of Independence,which is the ramework for the constitution;it was written by Thomas Jefferson,not all the founding fathers.The original quote was from the English constitution,which was "life,liberty and property',but it was changed by Jefferson because he wanted it to indicate the pursuit of a utopian society,even though he knew it could never be acheived.
The term "The pursuit of Happiness' was meant to be forward looking,to include liberties such as education,prosperity and freedom,and it was (is) meant to provide all citezens with the opportunity,through government,to find contentment.That does not mean only capitalists;it is possible to be filthy rich and still not find the contentment of true happiness.Your definition of 'happiness' is shallow because it only considers economic contentment,not moral or spiritual contentment.
You should read some of analysys of the declaration anf the constitution.not just the words contained within it to provide talking points" Sep 13, 10 1:52 PM

To expand a bit on the quote used above by dan27,the entire quote in the declaration is "We hold these truths to be self-evident;that all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights,that among these are life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness.."

the phrase 'among these' indicates that there are rights not specifically spelled out,yet are just as 'unalienable' as those described in that sentence.Since the constitution is such a topic,try reading the 9th amendment,which states that 'the enumeration in the constitution,of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
To place the rights of capitalists above the rights of the rest of the people is to promote an aristocracy and create class division;it is to totally deny the very document that one claims to hold so dear." Sep 13, 10 2:11 PM

Taxes are lower on the middle class than they have been in decades.everybody does better under democrats than republicans,including the top 2%.

Quoted text-

"On his MSNBC show Countdown, host Keith Olbermann reminded the teabaggers, who just now seem to have figured out what the name means, where the term teabagger came from. Hint: it wasn’t Maddow or Olbermann but the teabaggers themselves who coined the term.




Olbermann said, “It is as useful to remind them anew of how the term originated and with whom. A TV news report aired last March 14 in which a correspondent described the original protest act, ‘take a teabag, put it in an envelope, and mail it to the White House.’ He added, ‘reteaparty.com has a headline Teabag the Fools in D.C. on tax day.’ Thus the verb to teabag was invented by the teabaggers themselves, and the correspondent who put it on TV was a Griff Jenkins of Fox News. Send your complaints to him.”



The teabaggers coined their own name, without realizing what it also means, and then they blamed their critics for their stupidity. By the way, why did it take them so long to figure out what a teabagger is? Why has this outrage on their part flared up recently?




It is as if none of them know how to use Google. (I’ll help you out teabaggers. Google isn’t another sexual term. It is a search engine. Ask one of your grand kids to show you how it works). Olbermann is correct Fox News helped spread the term before MSNBC got a hold of it, but as we know in the teabagger mind, Fox News can do no wrong, so it is a given that they won’t believe Olbermann, or me for that matter.

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?

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 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.

This is about the dream act-

Show us where Obama said that.I want a full quote and a link.
The myth of equality the right is trying to sell will diminish low cost government student loans,remove protections for minorities and women and lower the availability of advanced education from all but those who have enough income to afford it outright.Those policies will strengthen the ability and opportunity to discriminate in college admissions based on race." Oct 12, 10 8:08 PM

Nancy Pelosi is smart-a LOT smarter than Sarah palin.
The healthcare bill was posted online before it was voted on,everyone knows this.

Its called cherrypicking.They take a topic,distort it to fit an agenda,then scream it at the top of their lungs.They count on the effect if more they shout,the more people think that they speak for everybody.The tea party is an extremist wing of the republican party,out to re-make America in its own image.It's dangerous." Oct 12, 10 8:57 PM


A new low.You have a lot of nerve to question someones patriotism.They did it to John Kerry,a decorated war veteran and they did it to Max Cleland,who lost 3 limbs in Viet Nam.
