Well done Fritz. Milton Friedman once said, "The government solution to a problem is as bad as the problem." One of the reactions to 9/11 was to nationalize the security workforce at the nation's airports via the TSA. Since then, we've been subjected to the most intrusive and personalized searches, on a grand scale, ever. Meanwhile, say a few specifics phrases at the southern border and you're put into a hotel room at the U.S. taxpayers' expense and an appearance ticket . Oh, by the way. There's no way for them to make sure you show up to your immigration hearing. Government isn't the solution. Government is the problem. (Ronald Reagan)

Have the pages of this newspaper ever been critical of Tonko or Gillibrand? $250 million dollars? Seriously. During Sequestor Summer? We have more important things to spend money on! Like taking Obama's 75-person entourage to Martha's Vineyard. And giving $500 million dollars to Hamas. We are witnessing a run on the U.S. treasury that our kids will find impossible to reconcile. Shame on U.S.

Three of my four grandparents were immigrants from Ireland. I'm 100% Irish. Should I be "offended" by the fighting Irish leprechaun caricature used by Notre Dame? We're oh, so sensitive nowadays.

Here's the message from the Zimmermann trial to White America: "We race haters/baiters want to have a conversation; a ONE-WAY conversation. We get to tell you how racist you are, and you have to accept it as truth. PERIOD. Now shut up!"

Dave. The math on supposedly, enviro-friendly energy has never worked out. I noticed former NYSERDA chairman, Rep. Paul Tonko was there to get his photo-op for this project. Not only are the ugly finances hidden from us, the environmental damage is hidden as well. For example, wind turbines kill birds every year, without regard to their "endangered species" status. Wind energy producers are not fined for killing endangered birds, but ask the natural gas/nuclear producers how many times they're fined for inadvertently capturing a fish or other species in their energy production. Solar energy production is funneled back into the grid, and the owners (schools, businesses, homeowners, etc.) receive a credit on their energy bills for the energy produced. In essence, non-solar panel users are subsidizing solar users. The CBO says that this year, $7.3 billion dollars will be distributed in eco-friendly energy tax subsidies and another $4.8 billions dollars for "energy efficiency." That's about $12 billion?! Now there's some math for you!

Ken. It's hard to decide on "smart drilling," when there are so many lies out there. Gasland director Josh Fox has been caught in an outright falsehood when he showed video of tap water igniting. That water was flammable BEFORE fracking. I encourage you to watch Fracknation. Here's a clip:

I wonder if Schumer is in favor of the XL Keystone pipeline? Crickets. We have 2.3 million miles of pipeline coursing through America; safely transporting hydrocarbons and yet, we can't get that pipeline built. As it stands now, the oil is being transported by train. Schumer offers the only solution he ever considers: bigger government with more restrictions on private business and individuals. Schumer is a mastermind. He knows all. As a matter of fact, Schumer's irresponsible pronouncements about IndyMac Bank began a run on the bank that led to its eventual closure. I don't trust Chuck Schumer. He's the classic syrupy, contrarian-politician whose softly spoken words belie his sinister motives. If Chuck Schumer is for something, there's trouble brewing.

The writer seems to support the concept of a nanny state. What would we citizens do without the state telling us how to live our lives? For example, the state tells us what type of light bulbs we can use, how much water we can use in our toilets, what types of stoves, washing machines, microwaves, refrigerators, we can use. The state dictates how many miles/gallon we must get in our cars. The once powerful Ford trucks are moving away from steel to aluminum and plastic in order to comply with EPA mandates. Does anyone champion LIBERTY anymore?

If George Zimmerman is murdered, I blame President Obama, Eric Holder, and the race/hate-baiters: Sharpton and Jackson.
