Bishop Leads Altschuler After Absentee Ballots Counted

Now that, Phil, is funny! " Nov 21, 10 11:34 AM

And then the rookie outsourced the pawn's job to India and refused equal pay for the queen and health benefits for the knight before inviting the bishop to teach creationism at the local public school." Nov 21, 10 11:36 AM

Anyone interested in reasoned, sane, factual information on the truth behind tax cuts read the article here http://www.truth-out.org/the-great-tax-cut-debate-myths-and-facts65294

an excerpt:

"Republicans portray the Bush tax cuts as similar to President John F. Kennedy's. That is a poor analogy. Kennedy cut the top tax rate from an exorbitant 91 percent to 70 percent. In contrast, Bush cut the top tax rate from a historically low 39.6 percent to 35 percent. By increasing enforcement and cracking down on loopholes, including the use of foreign subsidiaries for tax evasion, Kennedy increased government revenue. On the other hand, the Bush rich tax cuts will cost the nation $700 billion dollars in government revenue, and Republicans are fighting limiting outsourcing and foreign loopholes. In part due to a smart taxation policy, Kennedy created 1.2 million jobs per year in office; Bush was losing 700,000 jobs a month his last year.

The current political climate is hostile to real accountability – and to the kind of journalism that keeps accountability alive. Keep lawmakers and corporations in check by supporting Truthout today.

"Trickle-down" economics has not worked since Herbert Hoover tried it. Every dollar devoted to the middle class causes the economy to grow three times faster than a dollar for the rich, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Millionaires save more of their income gained by tax cuts. Middle-class families spend more. Lower taxes for the rich leave deficits that must be paid for by the middle class, taking the very money we'd give working families.

Since 1900, Democratic presidents have produced a 12.3 percent annual return on the S&P 500, Republicans only 8 percent. GDP growth since 1930 is 5.4 percent for Democratic presidents and 1.6 percent for Republicans."" Nov 21, 10 12:21 PM

What a lazy posting.

He went there to create jobs here. If you would pay attention to what actually happens, you would be able to do more than spew talking points. I have never seen a group of people so eager to bash a president over every single thing he does. And don't say Bush because it just ain't true.

from CBS NEWS:

"President Obama stayed for three days in India in order to discuss economic relations between the two countries as well as offering support to India in its attempt to get a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. Obama dismissed the popular notion that outsourcing has led to India taking American jobs, instead he painted his trip as one encouraging the Indian government to open the country’s market to American exports, thereby creating jobs for Americans. The CBS Evening News has reported that a series of 6 separate deals that have been in the works between Indian and U.S. businesses would create 50,000 American jobs."" Nov 21, 10 1:42 PM

Yeah, if they apply to the middle class, not the rich. The left is for TAX CUTS TO THE MIDDLE CLASS - those making 250,000 and under so try to pay attention.

You want to talk about something that is not up for discussion: In 2009 Americans paid the lowest tax rate since the 1950's! That is a freaking FACT so try to wrap your head around it.

"Amid complaints about high taxes and calls for a smaller government, Americans paid their lowest level of taxes last year since Harry Truman's presidency, a USA TODAY analysis of federal data found."


Amid Recession, Tax Bills in 2009 at Lowest Level Since 1950


Federal, state and local taxes — including income, property, sales and other taxes — consumed 9.2% of all personal income in 2009, the lowest rate since 1950, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reports. That rate is far below the historic average of 12% for the last half-century. The overall tax burden hit bottom in December at 8.8.% of income before rising slightly in the first three months of 2010.

WASHINGTON -- Billionaire Warren Buffett rebutted claims that the Obama administration is unjustly hurting business orders with high taxes by saying that in fact, the wealthy have never had it so good.

"I think that people at the high end, people like myself, should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we've ever had it," he told ABC's Christiane Amanpour in a clip played on "This Week" on Sunday.

When Amanpour pointed to critics' claims that the very wealthy need tax cuts to spur business and capitalism, Buffett replied, "The rich are always going to say that, you know, 'Just give us more money, and we'll go out and spend more, and then it will all trickle down to the rest of you.' But that has not worked the last 10 years, and I hope the American public is catching on."" Nov 21, 10 2:13 PM

Is that ronnie the spender come back from the grave to remind republican/baggers that he just failed your purity test:

1. Deficit spending soared during Reagan’s presidency. Strike one.

2. As governor of California, Reagan oversaw the development of Medi-Cal, the nation’s largest Medicaid program — expanding it to cover long-term care and developing massive new managed care systems. Strike two.

3. As governor of California, Reagan established the Air Resources Board to battle California’s smog problems and supported aggressive government intervention where the market had failed to protect the environment. As president, Reagan signed more wilderness protection laws — which restrict private-sector exploitation of natural resources — than any president in history. Strike three.

4. Reagan was a former union president who campaigned against the Taft-Hartley Act and other restrictions of the right of unions to organize. Strike four.

5. Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which granted amnesty to most undocumented workers who could prove they had been in the country continuously for the previous five years. After he finished his presidency, Reagan continued to speak out forcefully for immigration rights. Strike five.

6. After the 1983 bombing of a Marine barracks in Beirut, Reagan was urged by some to surge more troops into the region. Instead, he ordered the Marines to begin withdrawal from Lebanon. Strike six.

7. Reagan acknowledged that during his presidency the U.S. sold weapons to Iran. Strike seven.

8. Reagan was the first president to invite an openly gay couple to spend the night in the White House, and he famously argued that gays and lesbians should not be discriminated against in a 1978 television advertising campaign. Strike eight.

9. Shortly after his inauguration as governor of California, Reagan signed into law the most liberal abortion statute of its day. Strike nine.

10. Here’s Reagan, in 1991, on gun control: “I support the Brady Bill, and I urge the Congress to enact it without further delay.” Strike 10." Nov 21, 10 2:18 PM

Yeah, good luck with that." Nov 21, 10 2:19 PM

Barbara Bush has shared her thoughts on Sarah Palin, and it sounds as if she hopes the former Alaska governor decides against running for president.

"I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful, and I think she's very happy in Alaska," Bush said, before adding, "and I hope she'll stay there."

The former first lady made the comments in an interview with Larry King, which will air Monday night on "Larry King Live."" Nov 21, 10 3:03 PM

Just a correction, Palin's motto is "Don't START thinking"

Dear joe, coming from the most bigoted and spiteful teabagger on this site, I'll take that as a compliment. By the way, if Bishop loses, at least I had the pleasure of watching you squirm.

Altschuler playing dirty politics. This says all you need to know about this man

Altschuler’s Unsubstantiated Accusations
Randy Altschuler’s latest press release may be the most provocative statement to come out of either camp since the election began. In it, Altschuler accuses Bishop of disenfranchisement and ‘stealing’ the election through one of his advisers.

Joe says for women, "especially liberal Jewish women" it is all about abortion, yet he was the one who broached the topic and can't stop talking about his christian conservative values.

Two things for you, joe - firstly, fc is right, you are a total bigot, second, abortion is legal in this country. If you ever get raped by your uncle and decide to have the baby, that's your choice - oh, that's right, you're a man so you really have no clue what you're talking about.

And then there is "small government" bagger, little razza who wants the government out of his life, unless of course it is about telling a woman what she can or can't do with her body.

I am going to join my fellow sane brothers and sisters and leave these boards to the loonies to argue amongst themselves. Their hate and bigotry will eat them alive and, in the end, since they consider themselves good Christian soldiers, they'll be judged by whatever higher being they believe in - and not favorably.

As others have pointed out, these boards have become a haven for racists, bigots, and wingnut baggers, but remember, just as they proved during the health care debate, they have nothing to offer beyond stomping their feet and whining like children.

To Altschuler - You destroyed the lives of thousands of Americans. eff you.

Good luck, Mr. Bishop." Nov 23, 10 8:40 AM

Hey, you teabagging dittohead, I thought you guys were supposed to be AGAINST deficit spending? I guess it is OK to add to the debt as long as the rich benefit, right?

New Sag Harbor Teachers Contract Pays More But Bumps Up Health Care Contribution

Hey Marple, et al, what's the matter, no one can be less miserable than you? This total lack of respect for educators is ludicrous" Dec 7, 10 2:41 PM

And teachers are what, fake people? Give us a break with this teabag philosophy. Not to mention you're a liar. The average elementary teacher salary in the US, including New York, is $40,477.00 and, since you said they are the highest paid in the WORLD have a look at this http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/09/teacher-pay-around-the-world/ Our teachers work the MOST hours and are behind ten other nations in terms of pay

Since I did not directly repudiate your b s about us spending more per student than any other country or city in the world, let me do so now: http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/edu_edu_spe-education-spending-of-gdp As a percentage of GDP spent on education we rank 57th. " Dec 7, 10 3:35 PM

Thank you, Mrs. Sea. The teachers will also be paying an extra 2.5% of their health care costs. Only the dumbest among us hate educators." Dec 7, 10 3:50 PM

What teachers do is perform and invaluable service in this "real world". Our schools exist to educate our children. Our teachers do that and paying teachers a proper salary IS fiscally responsible.

Now, if you are talking about what they're planning to do over at Tuckahoe spending 100 grand to build "on-campus" housing for a superintendent who makes $155,000/year - THAT is called fiscal irresponsibility and it is something upon which I am sure we could both agree. http://www.27east.com/news/article.cfm/Tuckahoe/315188/Tuckahoe-Superintendent-Wants-to-Live-In-On-Campus-House-Informational-Meeting-Set-For-December-13

Altschuler Concedes Congressional Race To Bishop

Thank GOD the people of District 1 did not succumb to the teabag insanity that has overtaken our country. And don't tell me he won by only a few hundred votes - in a political atmosphere that meant almost certain doom, sane people simply could not bring themselves to vote for a man who so brazenly outsourced our future.

Now, Mr. Bishop, vote no on the concession to republicans on tax breaks for those who don't need them and make the teabaggers/republicans defend their defense of the rich and their addition of a trillion dollars to the debt. " Dec 8, 10 10:49 AM

Tuckahoe Superintendent Would Rent District-Owned Home Following $95,000 Renovations

By investing that money in kids and not real estate. A public school should not be a freaking landlord. Why does this school have a surplus? I would guess it would be in case of an emergency. My kids went to private school and we never would have allowed such an expenditure. A public elementary school spending taxpayer money on "on-campus housing" is a precedent we do not want being set.
