But yet we export all of our junk food ideas, McDon., KFC, Coke/Pepsi, etc. to foreign countries in hopes that they consume the large portions so we can get them like us. All for the capitalist $ gain to pay the stockholders and increase the bottom line, at the expense of ones health, especially the childrens. Kind of like here in the old USA.

If anyone else had ripped off someone for millions like the NYRA did with the $8 million held back from the bettors, it would be grand larceny. But not in the white collar world. Goes to show you how little respect they have for the hand that feeds them (the betting public). Their perception is one of gullibleness of the betting public.

And this is after the forgiving of the NYRA 80 million dollar debt that was owed to NYS. And the 20 year extension by the state to NYRA to run the racing industry in the state. It's really the under $600 winner who really got burnt and has no recourse because they did not have to pay any taxes. Therefore they did not have to file with the IRS so there is no paper trail to recoup the lost money by having proof of the winnings. Regardless, the robot drones will file in enmasse to opening day and turn their pockets inside out and bet with their usual fervor. And what would NYRA do with all those umbrellas, T-shirts, and hats.

Excellent! Then when they hire the new teachers from the gambling money raised, they can educate the students in the ways to avoid the gambling addiction that pays the teachers salaries.

And who paid for the abandoned gas station bldg. demolition next to the 605 Union St. fire? This bldg. was unaffected by the fire. It was on the corner of Union/Barrett Sts.

I suppose his "Chevy" rental (SCCC) will be good enough until he trades it in for his new Cadillac down the road.

Why not. Schenectadys' Metroplex is partly responsible for the building of condos in a flood plain at the old ALCO site. During the recent flood of 2011 the waters inundated the site completly. Hope prospective buyers see the flood pictures before buying.

Coincidence? Does the deployment figure in the State/County efforts to justify the existence and of the Stratton Bases' importance? This deployment coming on the heels of the State/Sch'dy County efforts in their push arguing for it's continued operation noted last week in the press.

It always is amazing that cuts of waste are always "found" when times are tough financially. They never seem to be found when all are riding the wave of prosperity, spending left/right with all living high off the taxpayers dole (economic stimulus?) Since they must exist during the high times (otherwise they could'nt be cut during the low times, heres a novel approach, do the cutting before the times get low and you just might save all the dollars ahead of time, thereby eliminating the waste in advance. The cuts that come must surely be beneficial/nescesary and don't impede the teaching programs, otherwise they would'nt be cut. So why do items to be cut then exist to begin with?
