I have a better idea. Let's just stop giving money to the fed, state, and county machines, and keep all taxes local. The fed needs to fund national defense, that's fine, but the rest of what they do is a colossal waste. The state needs even less, other than upkeep of statewide roads, what can they possibly do that local government can't?
Our money is extorted from us, filtered through the behemoth of bureaucracy, then pennies on the dollar are given back as "tokens" of appreciation from the overlords.
I can walk into my town supervisor's office and express my pleasure or displeasure at how my tax dollars are spent, and he'll listen (he better). Good luck expressing your opinion to a state rep. U.S. congressmen and senators are completely out of reach unless you have piles of dollars for them.
This will never happen, since fools continue to vote, in the way fools too often do.

Why don't they spend another $18,000,000 and build a bridge around it?

Trump isn't perfect, but he disrupted (and hopefully destroys) the entrenched, corrupt, elitist, and power hungry Republican establishment. Even if that's all he brings to the table, it's enough for me. Too bad the entrenched Dems are far too powerful and much too corrupt to let that happen to their kingdom, can you say Debbie Wasserman Schultz?
Why do you think all of the nomenklatura on both sides are trying to stop him?
There are loudmouthed goons in both parties, but they march in lockstep, so they're tolerated.
The two party system is the problem, and thanks to Trump, we might be halfway to sending it to the scrap heap of history.

Obviously no one asked taxpaying Americans. Although most college degrees are worthless, so maybe something that has no value should be free.

Mr Frank
The public education syndicate robs taxpayers blind everyday. Especially in NY with the highest cost per student, and dismal results. I don't need to use "code" words, there is no question that public schools should be dismantled, and absolutely no valid argument against ending all public education. If a family has 10 children, then they pay for 10 children to attend PRIVATE schools. Those who have no children should pay nothing. It's so plain, simple, and fair, that even a public education advocate should be able to understand it.

Heartbreaking and disgusting. I can't believe what goes on on Sacandaga, and Lake George. Most operators not only have no clue how to properly captain a boat, but they have zero common sense as well. The NYS boating safety course is a joke, and is only required for PWC operators, and those born after May 1, 1996.

Chuck my friend, you assume I'm from the right. Given the fact that I'm a radical Libertarian, I just might be to the left of you on many issues. I despise both major political parties. But the FACT is that Clinton has absolutely never accomplished anything that benefitted anyone other than herself. She has used every position she has held as a personal atm. Can you name any of her accomplishments, other than making herself incredibly wealthy while collecting civil servants salary?

Wpjmurray, you made accusations, do you have any facts to back up your accusations? Or are you just going to hurl insults, which is typical of those of you who are incapable of rational discussion.

Yea sure, let's give the most corrupt, inefficient and unresponsive behemoth in history more power. And while we're at it let's give whiskey and car keys to a bunch of teenagers.
