So... the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a... robot with a bomb?

Is it possible to make a law that the banks, just like regular homeowners, should take care of the property they own? If they don't, the town can send in people to take care of the property and bill the owners (usually the banks) appropriately. This also may discourage banks from being too trigger-happy with the foreclosures.

"Sanders must quit so we don't get Trump"? I believe Lillian Neal meant to say "Clinton must quit so we don't get Trump". In every poll, Clinton and Trump are at a virtual tie ( ). Compare that to Sanders who is consistently more than 10 points ahead ( ).

John Gentile - I don't think you understand what "revising history" means... but hey - how about putting Jackson on the $200 bill. Win win! Right?

I would have to wholeheartedly disagree with Claude Rizzicone's assessment. He says "With Clinton, Bush and Obama, our poverty rate increased"... no... only under Bush. The poverty rate goes down under Democratic presidents - . He says "The Democratic Party would rather support welfare and illegal immigrants at our expense.". Again, no. Most welfare money goes to corporations and the rich through tax loopholes, write-offs, subsidies, etc ( ). He doesn't understand the difference between socialist and democratic socialist (which is really what our country needs). Not some paranoid man with unrealistic delusions of other countries dropping a bomb on us.

Will the added tracks offer more trips to and from NYC? Right now if you wanted to take a day trip to the city, the earliest train from Schenectady will get you there at 12:45pm, and the latest train back to Schenectady leaves at 5:45pm. It's pretty frustrating to have to go to Rensselaer for better options.

My girlfriend and I were pretty frustrated that almost every First Night event we tried to get into was full. We decided to stand in line for one event at Empire State College and waited for an hour, completely missing the performance we were there to see.

So it broke the previous record by 14 degrees? When is the last time a record was broken by that much?
