Saratoga Springs Police Chief Greg Veitch blew it when he said he wanted to fire PO Nathan Baker. As the top cop he should realize that what he did sent a message to the Saratoga Springs police force to look out. If they do anything that is not approved by the PC freaks, he is not going to support them. He is going to through them under the bus like he wants to do to Baker. Great leadership.

I received a postcard today, Saturday, May 16 that disgusts me. The postcard attacked Barbara Mauro’s activity on the school board and urged citizens to vote her out. What disgusts me is that the person or persons who sent it out attacked a person, but didn’t have the courage to sign it.

If Jennifer Lawrence had used a BlackBerry Q10 phone hackers wouldn't be able to get her photos in the first place. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was hacked by the U. S. a while back, so she went out and got one. In fact she went out and got 5,000 BlackBerrys for all her friends in government. President Obama has always used one.

Generally, governments interfering with markets is not a good idea. President Nixon tried it in the seventies; it ended badly.

The trouble with Medicare is that it is underfunded and overpromised; the same with Social Security, and you can throw in mismanaged. It is a shame that they are going broke.

If you want to know what a casino will do for a city, go to Atlantic City, NJ. The casinos there are dumps. Promised economic development from casinos in Atlantic City did not materialize and it too became a dump.
