Keep New York City Ballet, as originally intended, at SPAC In the last month, there has been much discussion about the Saratoga Performing Arts Center’s announcement of the decision, arrived at through negotiations with New York City Ballet, to cut the ballet’s residency to one week in 2013. New York City Ballet was co-founded by George Balanchine, one of a handful of choreographers whose permanent popular and canonical status is a fact. Perhaps fewer people ...

Romney and Bain Capital started dozens of business's that employed tens of thousands of people, IE; Staples and Family Dollar just to name two.

He gave his millions of dollars of inheritance to charity.

He save the 2000 winter olympics without being paid.

He never took a paycheck as governor.

Obama is responsible for an economy that is the worse it has been in more than 50 years. He has devided this country and race relations are worse than they have been in 50 years. Obama says he is being outspent by Romney but Obama has spent 58 million to Romneys 27.5 million. Obama is a liar plain and simple and America can not take four more years of him.

If you think we are better now than four years ago and that it is all Bush's fault, you really should put the Kool Aid down and have a nice glass of tee to restore your brain cells.

Excellent letter Mr McGarry,
As I sit in my office this morning struggling through the issues that come with being a business owner, it angers me to think that our president, and my congressman think that they know better than us. Obama or Tonko don't have a clue how business works, or what it really takes to be in business, that's why both are beaureaucrats rather than being gainfully employed. They both are very happy to treat us as an ATM machine for their wasteful spending though.

Unfortunately, looking at the redistricting, we're stuck with Tonko. The lines are drawn to include all the takers(Tonko's constituency), rather than the makers.

"Romney and Bain Capital started dozens of business's that employed tens of thousands of people, IE; Staples and Family Dollar just to name two."

They did not found those companies.

"He gave his millions of dollars of inheritance to charity."

Giving the Mormon church millions to finance clones going door to door bothering people, isn't quite the same as donating to cancer research, or hunger relief.
It did however, enable him to avoid paying a hefty tax bill.
He didn't save the Olympics, they would have just gone on someplace else, other than Utah, his "spiritual home".

"Obama is responsible for an economy that is the worse it has been in more than 50 years."

Cheney admitted that they left Obama with an economy that was like a ticking time bomb.

"He has devided this country and race relations are worse than they have been in 50 years."

Chiefly because many many people like you still can't deal with the fact that he is black, whether you admit it, or not.

"Obama says he is being outspent by Romney but Obama has spent 58 million to Romneys 27.5 million"

There is one Nevada investor alone, who pledged Romney $100million. The Koch brothers alone, have pledged $60million, with the end goal being $400million.
That's an awful lot of favors to pay back.

"Obama is a liar plain and simple and America can not take four more years of him."

Romney gets caught in a lie on a daily basis, there should be an asterisk next to every sentence that comes from his mouth.
America can not take 4 years of Bush's less stupid evil twin.

"If you think we are better now than four years ago and that it is all Bush's fault, you really should put the Kool Aid down and have a nice glass of tee to restore your brain cells."

Were you home schooled by an AM radio?

Oh yeah, "As for jobs, China is very pleased to get those jobs and oil from our Canadian friends."

Are you on bath salts?
I thought the idea was to give jobs to AMERICANS, not give the Chinese even more.

Fritzdawg, Please give me 10 honest bullet points of Obama 3.5 years in office. He WONT run on his record so you give it to us and PLEASE stop blaming Bush, Obama said he would fix the economy in 2 years or he would be a one term president.

Stop with the KOCH broters, Obama went "on record" the other day stating he was being outspent but the factcheck shows Obama spent over two times as much as Romney.

Not to forget that liberal Diane Fienstein armed serv committee chair blames the Obama white house for the treasonous security lesks.

OK lets see that list of jobs, accomplishments and the debt reduction. Remember you have to do this with out blaming Bush, FYI Bush is no nonger in office, unfortunately. Please explain also how Obama thinks that it is alright for 47% of American not pay taxes and get money back by the EIC law.

gazettter reader, I said for America not against America. Removing those ABM will allow Venenzuela with the help of their friend Iran attack this country with ballistic missles. I really can't believe the brainwashed liberal minds in this country.

It was once said that liberals could not live without Conservatives defending their freedom and paing the taxes to support this country but Conservatives could live quite well without liberals.

"It was once said that liberals could not live without Conservatives defending their freedom and paing the taxes to support this country but Conservatives could live quite well without liberals."

Gee, I tend to be liberal, I put in 6 years of military service, and never ever "lost" my quals in my specialty. Did Cheney, Limbaugh, GWB, "Doctor" Savage, Glenn Beck, or WM? So who defends what?

I pay a lot of taxes, and NEVER fudge any personal items as a business expense - so I guess I pay too.

And in a time of draft, many conservatives (see list above) find creative ways to avoid it, so more liberals end up serving, and dying.

So would conservatives really live better without liberals?

Or is life more a symbiotic one?
