Democrats talk the talk, except when it comes to one of their own Too little too late. That’s what describes what just took place in Albany regarding the sexual harassment scandals involving Democratic Assemblyman Vito Lopez. I am a longtime private businessman and community volunteer. For the past five years, I had the privilege to serve as an elected official and work in the belly of the beast — what could be called the Albany ...

My heart goes out to all the families who have lost loved ones to these never ending wars. As honorable and dedicated to our country all soldiers are, we must not lose sight of the fact that the wars in Iraq and Afganistan were based on lies and should never have been fought to in the first place. Bush and his administration responsible for lying to the American public have yet to be prosecuted. So I challenge everyone who truly appreciates those who have given up their lives to defend America in military service, that they work to end these wars so not one more family like Ms Southworth's suffers. We owe it to all military members. To end unjust wars, and to hold those who initiate wars based on lies accountable. To me this is the highest possible way to honor those have and those who continue to serve.

Tonnijean, get a clue, the intel that Bush had was the same intel from multiple intelligence agencies around the world. Suddam was threatening to use WMD's he had poisoned thousands of his people with chemical weapons and he threw out the U.N. inspectors. Let's also not forget these wars were authorized by BOTH houses of Congress and would not have been necessary had it not been for Carter, another lib. I think that liberals should be held accountable and I think that Jane Fonda should have been tried and executed for treason. Your President Obama is threatening to go to war with Syria with far less proof than Bush had, what do you say about that. Oh wait, Obama is different.

wmarincic:
So much (well almost all) of what you stated is so factually inaccurate, that I don't know where to start.

At least the Tea Party is destroying the GOP, so there's that I guess.
Thank You.

Ummm, "your president"?
Which chickenhawk member of the right wing drivel and noise machine formed THAT thought for you?

fritzdawg you are like a business partner that I was going to have a few months ago, I spent hours and a good deal of money on the company logo and design. The third partners said that "Connor does not like the logo and design", so at the next meeting I bring up the logo and ask what ideas he had and what he would like to see changed. He responded that he did not have an idea and did not know what changes he wanted. he just didn't like it. Well I dissolved my part of that partnership the following week. You are the same, you say it is not true but offer no facts. You call the conservative party chicken hawks, not many people know that is a homosexual reference and BTW, it is the liberals that advocate the anything goes and if it feels good do it line.

The Democrats are equally silent on their local fiscal incompetence. 700+ property owners in the City are losing everything because of the Democratic inability to budget or make necessary cuts. This is also termed renaissance. Wait until the new County Home hits your tax bill.

wmarincic,you cant win an argument with fritdawg, because he is unable to be both logical and rational. Im sure he has no clue what Carter unleashed with the Ayatollah in Iran and is equally clueless about Clinton. The Democrat line is that Bush lied. He takes a political slogan used to smear a good man and decides its a fact with absolutely no understanding of what the real facts are. Its is a sad commentary on the shear ignorance of the average Democrat voter. That party thrives and depends on members that are beyond low information. Members that can be moved by simplistic jingles and tripe. Low information? Its more like no information. Just ask any Democrat who this guy Ben Ghazi is. Its enough to make you cry.
