Three Republican candidates will battle on Tuesday for right to challenge Bishop in November

My above comment says "tea party" and was a direct reference to the article, not any individual poster. Besides "Teabagger" is a word coined by your own teaparty compatriots when they began their "teabag congress" campaign." Sep 8, 10 9:37 PM

So his vote to do away with pre-existing conditions, to allow college kids to stay on their parent's insurance, and to keep insurance in the hands of private insurers is the terrible thing he has done? Well then I certainly hope he gets another term to continue his terrible reign of destruction." Sep 9, 10 11:00 AM

Tuckahoe developer defends plan

Just noticed that the Press is offering downloads of Mr. Morrow's idealized, concept art! Wow, you have crossed the line from softball journalism to actual advocation and it is inappropriate and shameful." Sep 9, 10 1:33 PM

Please provide evidence that tax breaks to wealthy produce jobs. They don't and that is why the eight years of the Bush presidency showed the lowest amount of jobs added in any decade since WWII. In the last 20 years the incomes of the top 1%have risen 210% - that's right, 210% while the income of the middle class has actually gone down when you add inflation

The month President Obama took office America was losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month. Again, the month our current President took office, we were losing 800,000 jobs a month - America lost 4 million jobs in the four months before Obama took office.

TARP was a Republican bill pushed through by Bush and Boehner BEFORE Obama took office.

Facts. Facts. Facts. " Sep 9, 10 2:37 PM

Tuckahoe developer defends plan

These images provided by the developer are an idealized rendering meant to SELL folks on this development. Why should a newspaper provide these files for download? I have seen this drawings and what they offer is a false choice. " Sep 10, 10 9:23 AM

Some already have eyes on November 2011 races in Southampton Town

With a couple of big PDD applications still under consideration, my vote for supervisor will be determined solely on whether Ms. Holst sides with voters or developer/donors." Sep 17, 10 10:33 AM

Chabad of Southampton wins Planning Board approval

This town is awash with prejudice, bigotry and hypocrisy. So many people have forgotten what it means to be human." Sep 18, 10 12:02 PM

I cannot believe that someone would be filled with enough hate and bigotry to even consider posting something like this let alone actually doing it. Disgraceful." Sep 19, 10 3:05 PM

Excused me, "Hamptsteins". The fact that you support this disgusting post says just as much about you as the original poster. There can be no other intent but bigotry for that type of posting so don't try to put the onus on me." Sep 20, 10 9:27 AM

Chairman resigns from East Hampton Town Planning Board

NINE YEARS! We need term limits for these planning board folks who get way too cozy with developers - democrat or republican" Sep 21, 10 12:58 PM

Condominium plan for Rambo site gets thumbs up from Southampton Town Planning Board

I don't care what is there now, we do not need 78 more condos! If the Rambo site is hazardous, then shut them down. This developer acts like he is doing residents a favor?! So I guess he'll be donating all of his profits to charity, right?" Sep 22, 10 6:24 PM

First they add 78 condos - and, as far as I can tell, not one single requirement for affordable housing which is simply disgusting - and they are still considering the Tuckahoe Mega-Mall PDD?! What are we allowing them to do to our town? Vote them all out and insist that any new candidate take NO money from any developer or developer's organization and place term limits on planning board." Sep 23, 10 2:22 PM

Excuse me, Nature, but it is a Mega-Mall and I will continue to refer to it as such and I don't need you advising me on how best to portray my "credibility" Furthermore, read my post, "Vote them all out" was referring to the town board and term limits to the Planning board.

Your smarmy responses are more than a bit tiresome. " Sep 23, 10 7:37 PM

Southampton Town bracing for stingy 2011 budget

One thing I noticed about parents who don't respect educators - their children don't either and when the child brings that parent's anger and bias to class it is definitely an impediment to learning. There is no question that there is a clear and direct correlation between a parent's attitude and their child's performance.

It is possible to disagree with educator while still being respectful, but some are just too mean and angry to allow themselves to think rationally. If you look at the country as a whole, 40% of all of our students live below the poverty level and that is a major factor in the country's performance as a whole, but the teachers are on the front line so they are the easiest targets. Are there some bad teachers? Of course there are, but there are also great ones, especially in our local schools and they deserve to be congratulated. And no - I am not a teacher."

I have personally written emails to ALL town board members. It is amazing that you feel it is all right for you to come here and moan, but everyone else is an "armchair" complainer. Your hypocrisy is astounding. Seriously." Sep 29, 10 7:24 PM

Debate over Jewish religious boundary begins to heat up

That is truly the most vile comment yet. The connection you are trying to make is abundantly clear and you should be ashamed of yourself." Oct 1, 10 10:08 AM

please explain the "privilege" that is begin sought and how it would effect the lives of anyone beyond those who wish to observe the demarcations" Oct 1, 10 11:47 AM

Kseal, you are comparing a request for subtle demarcations that will have absolutely no effect on anyone who does not wish to observe them with Sharia law and you think that is OK? What you are attempting to do is equate this with fears and hatred of Islam that are currently so prevalent in this country and it is vile and despicable. What you are attempting to do is equate Jews with radical Islam. Deny it all you want, but your intent is clear.

The first amendment protects you from prosecution by the government and does not apply to any individual's response to your nonsense. " Oct 1, 10 11:51 AM

Throne-Holst: No layoffs in 2011 tentative budget

On topic, why are you comparing the deficit-inducing budget of Kabot to this one? This budget is a direct result of mismanagement by Kabot and her predecessors.

Turkeybridge and baywoman are exactly correct, "no layoffs, no service cuts, and a tax hike at less than half of the 5% cap, with the extra tax money all going to help get us out of the hole that the Republicans dug in past years."

You are rewriting history and the vitriol with which you attack is more than just a bit disturbing." Oct 5, 10 10:39 AM

Would people prefer that others lose their jobs?" Oct 5, 10 11:04 AM

"retarded"? Assuming you are an adult, I cannot believe you actually wrote that. You should be embarrassed especially as your childish language has completely overwhelmed any point you were trying to make.

"Quasi-moronic gangmates"? You are attacking folks who have not even posted on this topic. You most certainly do appear to have gone over the edge. You are completely out of line and your personal attacks should be removed from these boards. " Oct 5, 10 2:04 PM

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

Throne-Holst: No layoffs in 2011 tentative budget

But we can afford to elect politicians who made millions shipping American jobs to India?

By the way, the National Tax Limitation Committee, thought it may sound like some official government body, is nothing more than a far right conservative political organization founded by Reagan lackey Lew Uhler, a right-wing ideologue trying to advance his extremist agenda which is to increase the power of corporations over our government. Laughable that you would quote his "study"
