We're very lucky that Shumer has the courage to take on the vexing, quality of life issues like this.

Aside from the real issue of dumping snow in the river, I always enjoy watching two bureaucratic state agencies duke it out in a test of wills over who has the upper hand. Imagine another group telling the DEC "we will do what we want"? The unfortunate part is, we are paying for this.

Ignoring laws that a politician doesnt like has become common. Obama and Holder regularly neglect to enforce laws that they don't like, so the sheriff has a great example to follow.

"We have every confidence that the speaker is going to fill his role with distinction". Really? He believes this? This may go down in history as one of the dumbest comments ever made. Great editorial.

And people don't understand why NY State is such a joke. Assembly Democrat's unwaivering support of this morally bankrupt leader is reprehensible. Even if he's found "not guilty", it doesn't mean he's innocent. These lawmakers must be very afraid of Silver. On a positive note, at least Statewide unemployment is down - except it's probalby due to peolple leaving this utopian paradise.

From: Lawmakers' reaction to Silver's arrest split along party lines

The people of New York State are very lucky to have a government that takes no risks - with anything....even if it means that the benefits of processes like fracking will go to other states. Obviously, we're much smarter than they are! Actually, the people of NYS DO benefit from misguided fracking policies in other states - The meltdown in crude oil prices and gasoline were caused by fracking. So, we get better gas prices, with no risk. We win!

Once again, the answer to every problem is an increase in taxes. What happened to the money we already paid? Cut spending first.

The oil that would be transported by the Keystone pipeline is traveling through our countryside now - by train and by truck, both of which pose far greater risk to our environment than transportation by pipeline. The risk of a spill is far greater, and this doesn't even begin to take into account the carbon emissions from diesel burning trucks and trains. So, Jan Walz arguments against the pipeline are very weak. I would also assume that she has no pension, mutual funds, or other investments in "huge, uncaring corporations" . These would clearly go against her belief that corporate America is evil (the same evil corporations that refuse to pay a living wage).

Why is the solution to every issue in NYS a new tax? I hope the last person to leave has the sense to turn off the lights.

From: Editorial: Spa ban on plastic bags not a solution
