Column skated over practical problems of going all-green After reading the May 12 op-ed column by Karen Cookson, “Accentuating the Positive,” which praised a study saying New York state should go to total green energy, I would like to provide the following comments. The study calls for all buildings to be heated by electricity. It never mentions who will wind up paying for the conversion of existing gas and oil heating systems to electric. In ...

Tisk tisk Vincent. Your President is all about politics. He does not govern. He does not lead. He Campaigns continually, plays golf and does vacations. Thats it. Benghazi was about your President playing politics so he could get re-elected. Wake the hell up.
Democrats from Clinton to Obama are political animals. They are not interested in fixing problems. Get a clue man.

Vincent, you talk about hatred for Obama, Conservatives have been screaming about Obama since the beginning. I have been talking about the fact that he would not allow any reporter access to him if that reporter criticized him, now we have the AP scandal. Mark Levin in 1997 brought a lawsuit against the IRS because they were targeting conservative groups and the Clintons used them to go after political enemies, IRS scandal is nothing new. I have two kids in the military one recently deployed, I'm told of critical equipment shortages and told that our men and women in harms way in both Iraq and Afghanistan are afraid that Obama and his people will not have their backs, Benghazi scandal. There are many more scandals also that are pushed under the rug, Fast and Furious scandal... Shall I go on. Had these been scandals of a republican POTUS I would say we would be having impeachment hearings.

Mr. Carelli - You are not alone despite most of the comments written. Unfortunately, criticism by one loud bullying voice is heard more clearly by legislators than the calmer voices of the masses as shown by the vote to regulate even huge magazines of ammo. We can't stop trying to restore reason and bipartisan cooperation for the next three years for the future of this great country.
Wmarincic - I thank your children for their service and you should certainly be proud. I am, however, through trying to respond to your rambling vitriol.

janesjoys you don't hurt my feelings, I feel bad for the lives you touch with you're anti American views. These above scandals are real, people and their lives were destroyed and in some cases people died. The White House will tell us that Obama did not know anything, I find that hard to believe as his Chief Of Staff and his lawyer knew almost two years ago according to Jay Carney. You may keep sticking your head in the sand or you can work for real change.

Rambling vitriol Janesjoys? Wmarincic's kid is overseas as mine was. Yes proud that they served their country, not so proud of the people they serve for. You liberals dont serve. While they serve you sit at home destroying the country from within. You ignore the Constitution. Trash it whenever convenient and abuse it for your own personal gain.
Reason with you guys is a waste of time. Bipartisanship to you is agreeing to what you want. This country was great once, but we've seen what years of liberal control have done. CA broke, IL, NY, fiscal messes with taxes and rights violations out of control. Your President destroying the US economy and ignoring the rule of law. You dont have a clue what you're talking about.

My ancestors fought in the American Revolution,the War of 1812, the Civil War, WWI and my brother served in Viet Nam, my uncle was injured in the Battle of the Bulge. I support our Veterans with donations to the Stratton VA on a regular basis. You have NO RIGHT to call me UNAMERICAN!!!!!!!!! I love this country, and you both prove my point about the loud bullying voices with all your answers.

Again Janesjoys, you sound just like Obama and Jay Carney, you attacked me, I just responded to your post so I would say you are the bully. Why don't you be a different kind of liberal and take responsibility for once. My post was that whenever a democrat is in the White House in the last 20 years there have been targeting of Conservative groups and major scandals. The only real Bush scandal was Valerie Plane and that was a Time Magazine scandal where Scooter Libby was convicted of perjury and nobody died like Benghazi. People died in Fast and Furious and now we have IRS people taking the 5th so they must be guilty and protecting someone. You can continue with you're head in the sand and yelling that the mean old conservatibve is picking on you,but, you and I both know it's a lie.

Yea Jansejoy, you love this country. You just don't love the Constitution or the rights of others. You love what you love and the hell with what other people care about. You love the socialist system that given a free hand you could turn loose on America. You support the troops, you just dont mind getting them killed by leaking photos at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo. Lets get one thing straight about bullies, they force themselves on others. That is what you Dems do. You force your crap on us. We force nothing on you. You attack our rights on a daily bases, You contort the Constitution to subvert our rights while claiming it provides you some made up right. You attack our Christian faith and demand we reject it it to support your twisted demands. You steal our money, brain wash our children. Who's the real bully?
