I called over to the sheriff’s office in Schenectady the other day to see if it was too late for me to change my enrollment to the Conservative Party so I could get a job, and I guess it’s too late. They’re all full up for the moment, having just hired Bob Hamilton as chief deputy in charge of the road patrol. Hamilton, of course, is head of the county Conservative Party, as well as ...

Is this the job creation I keep hearing about.....fantastic...now I feel better. So If I belong to the "Right Party" do my time...know the right people..fit within the specified qualifications, get the ok from the people representing the public....you can make quite a living doing public service...serving the people..selfless..honorable..rewarding..something to be proud of.....who knew...I always thought you would have to do something dishonest, illegal, ashamed of, corrupt, dirty, immoral, in the dark, thieving, conniving, hornswoggling, risk life in prison, not something you would tell your mother...you get the idea...down right disgusting that you can't sleep at night, live with yourself...kind of work.......Thanks Carl for the Primer in how to make it in very hard times!

AND now, I know, why I am paying $4900 a year in taxes on an $80,000 house on Avenue A. A house I absolutely can not sell because a $150,000 house in Saratoga County has the same tax bill!!! The same house in Saratoga is in a much better neighborhood, less crime, much easier to resell.

Yeah but you can go on ebay...put in Schenectady and you can find a whole lot of houses for $5,000 to $20,000 and still pay about $5,000 in taxes a year..Saratoga County is the only place I would buy as well, that property will increase in value..I would never be able to sell my house for what I paid for it 20 years ago...not a sound investment...but it depends on who you listen to in the propaganda department...Key to the City indeed!

I just bought a new home in Colonie valued at 3 times as my home in Schenectady and the taxes are almost a thousand dollars less. Anybody want to buy a really nice 2 family in Vale?

You don't have to dig to deep on that research....When he took the position he stated..that he knew nothing about the canal system...

There seems to be a split in the Dem Team Party system...Because...I don't see anywhere in Carl's story on the corruption of the Conservative/Dem party job gaming that goes on and on and on, the mention of Stratton's appointment by the other faction in the party system....I do remember Carl writing about that corrupt part of the party system as well. I don't know how anyone can think one corrupt gaming is right and the other wrong...They are both wrong and corrupt...and it is within the same party...seems like a Union problem to me...
