Boycott is only way to get stores closed

Text Size: A | A

Boycott is only way to get stores closed on Thanksgiving I thought Black Friday was commercialization at its worst, the corruption of a religious holiday. It’s been many generations now since crafty marketers dressed the baby in the manger up in a red suit and displayed him on a sleigh at the end of the Thanksgiving parade to promise children more gizmos than they can imagine. And it’s been downhill from there. Every year corporations ...

Richard, you can take responsibility for putting him in office not once but twice. I assume being a lifelong Democrat is some point of pride for you. Now like the good lemming I'm sure you have been, get out and crank up the vote for Hillary. As you know, problems caused or created by Democrats can only be fixed by Democrats. So get out there and vote Democrat. Ignore her lying shady past, her army skilled at personal destruction and her lying weasel of a husband. Just vote Hillary like a good little Democrat and all will be well.

Joe Lazzari, always a class act, Schenectady voters don't have a clue what they lost by not electing you. Don't fear though Joe, it seems that there are people waiting for proof from DHS that Mr. Mootooveren is an actual U.S. citizen, so I am being told. If he is not I would hope he would do the right thing and bow out now rather than have the controversy later.

A most recent letter is the constant charge that Pres. Obama is weak in foreign policy. Let’s check the record:
War in Iraq ended
War in Afghanistan nearly ended.
Osama Bin Laden killed in his bedroom, no less.
Hundreds or more Taliban and El Qaida killed by drones and other means.
Gaddafi removed with no troops on the ground as Republican hawks demanded
Syria destroying its chemical weapons without troops on the ground as hawks also demanded.
Iran about to agree to nuclear deal avoiding military action same war mongers wanted.
Most important, a firm policy to avoid sending American service people into every possible trouble spot.
Smooth relations with all parts of the world. Recent ruffles about spying not started by this administration.
New focus on China vicinity as a place for strong military presence.
All this is failure?

rpterry, get a clue, Iraq war had a timeline before Obama was elected. NBC news last night said that we will have troops on the ground probably for another 10 years in Afghanistan. Bin Laden killed because of Bush interrogation techniques not because of Obama but in spite of Obama. Gaddafi is gone from Libya and the country is in turmoil, the Libyan people are saying "before we only had Gaddafi, now we have hundreds just like him". Syria destroying it's chemical weapons because of Putin, not Obama, maybe you forgot Obama's line in the sand and then when he failed at that he tossed it to Congress to take the heat off himself. John Kerry another traitor in Iran giving the Iranians more time to get that nuke. Netanyahu is absolutely right. Obama is a failure in everything he does, he is a failed community organizer and a drug dealer and cocaine user in college. He was mediocre at his best, he was a Senator that was mediocre and he has never truly accomplished anything. So yes, he and his whole presidency is an absolute failure. Time to put the Kool-Aid down.

Joseph Lazzari-Thank you for running against the corrupt Democratic mud machine. You ran a clean campaign on the issues. In any other County the Democratic boss Chris Gardiner who lost 3 seats on the County Legislature and slimmed all GOP opponents would be sent packing. Never Schenectady. He will receive a huge raise from the overtaxed County taxpayers and be given a Patroon Award for libelous writing. BTW, the biggest problem is the Glenville Supervisor wanting full time hours?

It's a pretty big problem, gina99, when the Town Supervisor, who has held elected office for six years, decides to sneak in his proposal that will result in a big fat raise for himself,rather than following the law. The residents spoke out, and despite his claim to the contrary, Mr. Koetzle had no intention of abiding by the law and calling for a public hearing. He changed his tune pretty quickly mid-afternoon on Wednesday, no doubt when his political pal, the Town Attorney probably advised him that, ya know what Chris, it might be a good idea to follow the law.
