Duanesburg did students disservice axing hard chem class In the March 18 Gazette article, “Class cancellation upsets students,” Duanesburg Superintendent Christine Crowley justified the collective decision by the principal, superintendent and board to cancel an introductory organic chemistry course by claiming the “course material was too advanced for high school students.” Really? The students Mrs. Crowley underestimates are among the top 10 percent of the Class of 2013, all of which were passing the course! ...

Larry Wareing:
Agreed. Schumer's "idea", is so bizarre, that it borders on the surreal.
I have to wonder what part of his anatomy he pulled that proposal out of.
It sure wasn't his cranium.
NONE of those ships are even registered in The United States.
What makes him think that he can pass a law in another country?
Our rule of law, and our "constitutional rights", only apply to us, while we are here, in this country.
Your rights? Yeah right, I got your "rights" right here.
Try travelling to the middle east some time, and point out the fact that Muhammad was a pedophile.
Your "right" to freedom of the press shall be preserved.
For about 5 minutes, before they hang you.
The illusion of American exceptionalism has gotten way out of control.
They don't hate us for our freedom, they hate us for our arrogance.

Chuck Schumer has an approval rating of over 60% in NYS. There's no reason for him to stop pandering to the emotions of the electorate; facts be damned. His sidekick, Kirstin Gillibrand is taking copious notes on how this mastermind works. He is a loathsome individual, with no respect for the Constitution or individual rights. And he has many followers, both in and out of Washington, DC. World events and the future instability of the financial markets will alter the American political landscape. Time is the only determinant.

Schumer never met a camera or a reporter he didn't use. He is a narcissist and a liberal Govt. hack, I actually had the pleasure a few years ago to tell him so to his face. I wish I had it on camera, just to see him spitting and sputtering and yelling that he was right and I would see.

The story above about the supposed transgender girl is a joke, a few months ago I watched an in depth documentary on exactly the same thing and followed this child for 5 yrears, once the child hit puberty he changed his mind and realized that he was a male after all and felt he was pushed into this idea. Many children struggle with sexual identity even into their late teens and beyond. If the parents are really supportive they will let nature play out until his teen years and see how it plays out.
