Poor Mr Marvell thinks that a lone Senator or two can give instructions to a federal agency. Put the pipe down, pal.The IRS was actually scrutinizing liberal groups, ones with "98%" "Occupy___" and other similar names, and as many as the far-right groups. The new PACs have to prove they provide community services to even exist. Many of the so-called "Patriot" groups did nothing but politics. Since Mr Marvell also vilifies the President for not starting wars in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine one can only assume he has stock in Halliburton and is missing the big, fat dividends from the illegal wars started by Bush. At work I had my computer crash more than once. What would be alarming is finding that no computers crashed. As a citizen I am calling for truth and facts.

Only idiots call it Global Warming anymore. In fact that term hasn't been used on over a decade. Most credible scientists speak of Climate Change. Perhaps Mr. Gaetani has been living in a house with no windows, but I can attest to the severity of the climate in my 30+ years. Droughts are longer (John, check out California and most of the mid-west) and the rains we get now are often deluges, not rain. Getting 4 inches of rain in a day is NOT normal. Yes the temperatures have been getting warmer and colder for eons. Most of those changes were caused by "events". It's not a volcano that's messing with the atmosphere, it's all the crap we send up in smoke. Just keep on burning plastic.

I'd rather have a man spending his own money on his campaign than to be obligated to PACs like ALEC and the US Chamber of Commerce, or owned by the Koch brothers. Eldridge is doing a great job and spending his venture capital on local business. Gibson has learned who to court and how to impress them.

Vince should pay attention to the real news. The IRS scandal actually targeted more liberal groups than Tea Party ones. The Benghazi fiasco began years before when Republicans cut the foreign budgets, but let's blame the President for a single misstatement. No one went after Bush and Cheney when they took us into an illegal war, now did they?

Probably most "illegals" would jump at the chance to become citizens. Unfortunately they don't have a path....they can't just take a test....and we tend to forget about how necessary they are. What job did anyone ever take away from you, Biwemple? Do you harvest apples? Mow lawns?

He was very helpful in the recent Animal Shelter debacle, outing Mindy's role in all aspects of the hiring process. He was the first to expose the hiring process used in Saratoga County. Too bad the story is not interesting enough for the local papers.

Actually, you might want to look up what Ted Cruz has done. He has been raking in the big bucks from his most recent attempt at financial terrorism. He was bragging about his exploits even as the votes were being taken in the House. He has made millions for his antics.

And not a single spot for a wheel-chair bound person, because people in wheel chairs don't like entertainment, right. Nice job Sonny.

If there were no prisons in her territory would Kathy Marchione give a damn? As the population in the prisons is shrinking, most thinking people would conclude that the budget for prisons would also decline. She's just representing the 50 people in her area that work at Mt. McGregor, at the expense of every other tax payer. Kathy, most of your constituents DO NOT WORK AT THE PRISON. They just support the inefficiency so a few can keep their jobs.

Pay the fine and don't forget to change the name of your company so new customers won't know what a scum you are.While it is hard to give contractors a bad name, some try harder than others.
