Daily Update

Governor Cuomo, would you please explain this:  Del Lago casino, struggling with revenue, seeks state bailout.  Governor Cuomo did a good job of “pulling the wool over voters’ eyes” when he presented them with a heaping plate of malarkey in order to bring more casino gambling to New York.  Voter beware … his budget offers the same plate of malarkey this time around.

Why is this (and many other non-fiscal items) in the NYS Budget?

The left is so ecstatic with headlines that say John Paul Stevens, ex-SCOTUS justice, shocks with call to repeal 2nd Amendment.   They can hardly contain their “coup” of a Republican Justice saying this.  Republican or RINO?  Yes, President Ford appointed him, however, Justice Stevens is not known for his republican decisions, rather he is described as “maverick” and liberal.  His Op-Ed appeared in the New York Times.  At age 97, I’m impressed that he would be submitting his thoughts to the NY Times, but I am not surprised that the Justice that broadened the core holding of Roe v. Wade, upheld affirmative action and  dissented in Bush v. Gore, took the position that the 2nd Amendment should be repealed.  All I will say is that I’m just as happy as the left is –only my happiness is because that he resigned from the US Supreme Court and no longer has the power to restrict my 2nd Amendment rights. (Justice Stevens may think of himself as a conservative, so do some Members of Congress.  Just because one describes themselves as a conservative – doesn’t make them one – a true conservative would never find the right to an abortion in the US Constitution.)

Cynthia:  Corruption is Corruption no matter what office you are running for.  One should not single out just the person they are running against --- and be blind to what their friends do.  When someone does that, it tells me, the corruption isn’t the problem, the person is.
