Connect Veterans bike trail with Zim Smith, not Brookline Road

Text Size: A | A

Connect Veterans bike trail with Zim Smith, not Brookline Road As a bicyclist who has ridden the Zim Smith Trail a few times, the Veterans Bike Trail many times, and has braved the traffic on Eastline and Lake roads to get from one to the other, I was pleased to see in the Nov. 12 Daily Gazette that thought is being given to extending the Veterans path. But is going to Brookline Road really the ...

Stop worrying Patrice Kindl. NYS will be the last State to leave Obamanation. The election results proved that once again. Apparently good intentions and no results are what the people here want. They understand the importance of high gas, property and sales taxes. And God forbid this State ever becomes energy self sufficient. Or worse exports it's own home grown energy. No wonder NYS is 50th in business and job creation. Go to a Red State for a career.

In the 12 months between CNBC 2011 and 2012 Top States for Business reports, the economy has created 1.8 million jobs — by far the most since the 2006-2007 period.

New York State is #3 in Jobs!
1. Texas - 237,500 Net Job Creation
2. California - 211,500
3. New York - 135,000
4. New Jersey - 50,700
5. Florida - 50,300
A third of the new jobs has been concentrated in 10 states. Five states — Alaska, Maine, Mississippi, Rhode Island and Wisconsin — have lost jobs in the 12 months.

Grinch....according to NYS Labor Dept. the workforce in NYS in Jan. 2009 was 9,671,708
and as of Oct. 2012 it was 9,586,296. 85,000 fewer jobs since Obama took office. There is also 242,000 more people on unemployment. If this is what you think is a success, you should re-evaluate your criteria. In the last 12 months, 80,000 more people are working but 48,000 more are on unemployment. The NYS unemployment rate has gone from 8.2 to 8.7%

MY response was to Ginna99 posting: "NYS is 50th in business and job creation".
CNBC lists NY State as 3rd in job creation in the last year. NY State Dept of Labor has a similar figure: (Private Sector Jobs, June 2011 - June 2012) an increases of 1.9%, +139,100 jobs.

You're right JanesJoy.
They reject facts, while hype is accepted as if it were fact.

From the NY State Dept of Labor, November 15, 2012:
New York State's economy added 5,900 private sector jobs in October, the State Department of Labor reported today. The job growth brings the total to 110,300 private sector jobs added to the state’s economy in 2012 "AND SETS ALL-TIME HIGH JOB COUNT FOR NEW YORK AT 7,340,100."

Grinch, the labor force grew by 89,000 people in NY in October. (Janesjoy, I'll simplify that for you, that means 89,000 more people are looking for work, mostly by becoming of the age that they are counted as people who should have a job) The private sector (Janesjoy, those are the people who pay taxes to support everyone who doesn't have a job or works for the government) created 5,900 jobs. So Grinch, we fell short by roughly 83,000 jobs. That is not a healthy jobs situation.

Grinch...you should have noted what else the Labor Dept. stated in that press release. Unemployment declined to 830,600. Do you know what the unemployed number was a year ago?....782,460. Do you know what is was in October 2006 perhaps?.....416,000. This state is currently in a financial disaster. So much so that they have taken to releasing figures like 5,900 private sector jobs being created is good news.

JanesJoy,
AMAZING!
It's funny to watch a misogynist at work. I can't remember when I've read a more condescending post in the comments section.
albright1 seems to think that you need things "explained" to you. :)

gina99: "And God forbid this State ever becomes energy self sufficient."

I hate to burst your bubble, but the Niagra Power Project is helping light your house right now, and the last I heard, that is in New York State.
If you're referring to fracking, none of that gas is even going to be used in NYS, but rather is going to be exported for higher profits.
The spokespeople for the energy industries weren't lying when they said that fracking will neither raise, or reduce our energy bills.

Same thing goes for the Keystone pipeline. Every bit of the oil generated, is scheduled for export.

Fritz....not to burst your bubble but the Niagara Power Project has a rated generation capacity of 2400 MW. The total installed generation capacity in NYS is 39,500 MW.

That's why I used the word "helping".
In any case, NYS, and the rest of the United States as well, will NEVER be energy independent, because it is not in the oil companies' best interests.

Don’t buy a house in a state where private sector workers are outnumbered by folks dependent on government.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/baldwin/2012...

Thinking about buying a house? Or a municipal bond? Be careful where you put your capital. Don’t put it in a state at high risk of a fiscal tailspin.

Eleven states make our list of danger spots for investors. They can look forward to a rising tax burden, deteriorating state finances and an exodus of employers. The list includes California, New York, Illinois and Ohio, along with some smaller states like New Mexico and Hawaii.

If your career takes you to Los Angeles or Chicago, don’t buy a house. Rent
