Supporters of the "Confederate" flag conveniently forget why there was a Civil War.

This editorial seems to hope for good things but makes no mention (as I have) of Senate Bill S5867, signed By Governor Cuomo in December, which adds specific requirements for IDAs.
Shouldn't there be some accountability from Metroplex before they get what they want? The bill, passed unanimously, is described as follows:
Relates to the accountability and efficiency of industrial development agencies and authorities; requires each industrial development agency to develop a standard application form to be used by the agency to accept requests for financial assistance from all individuals, firms, companies and developers; further requires industrial development agencies to develop policies for the suspension or discontinuance of financial assistance of PILOT.

He may soon be a man without a country since it's now coming out that his son was an active member of the Gay community himself.
We reap what we sow, indeed.

Mr Caupert speaks like a good Corporate Tool.
For the real story on why ethanol is so "important", Google: ethanol corn lobby.

oakbluff: So it would appear Ms. Dingley did as well. Good for her.

This is blatantly an opinion piece filed under "Latest news".

Kinda weird how this article and my comment got buried so quickly while uncommented articles are currently in the "Mot discussed" section".

That's a lot of money and a lot of responsibility for an unelected position in the workings of the city. The City and concerned citizens would do well to be familiar with Senate Bill S5867 which "Relates to the accountability and efficiency of industrial development agencies and authorities".

Yet we so strongly defend the "right" of anyone to openly carry loaded weapons anywhere they wish. See where this goes?
The ACLU makes a clear distinction between defending the *actions* of an abhorrent group versus their, or anyone's First Amendment right to speak freely. That's admittedly a very difficult thing to do sometimes. But civil rights are civil rights and in this country apply to everyone, no matter how revolting.
I'm not a lawyer and cannot speak for ISIS' rights or a knucklehead's in a crowded theater. And one could easily see how ABC News skewed the story to make it more titillating (I did read it). What a surprise.

I'm normally a fan of Rachel Maddow (in spite of her often shrill delivery), but last night was a disgusting display of how the corporate run media move our elections. While she seemed to try to portray both sides of this AP release, there behind her the entire time was an oversized graphic showing Ms. Clinton's beaming face, her name in big letters, and a checkmark with the words "Presumptive Nominee". No attribution of who "presumed".
On the other hand I noticed CNN had a good two hours of actually balanced, evenly represented discussion on the specific subject of the release. So rare praise for them.
