It might be taking money out of one pocket instead of the other, but the pockets are not equal. One pocket has your home at risk of foreclosure--and the loss of years you've invested to purchase it--if it is taxed beyond your means. The other pocket doesn't have that consequence and is likely to reflect ones ability to pay.

On John O. Hornfeck: Did anyone crunch his numbers? Besides that, isn't it interesting that when sales tax goes up or assessments and taxes, when the power co. and phone co. charge a premium fee, or when NY allows the insurance co. to give stiff rate increases, there is no outcry over what the impact will be on prices and employment. But when it helps fellow human beings to hold a bit of ground against your supplier's huge increases and thus your increases--no whining heard there either--it's the end of the business world.

Once again the gov. and dems. have taken the easy, ineffectual route, catering to the dim witted supporters of his left wing extremism, rather than doing the hard work of solving the problem. It shows that the perspicacity required to solve NY problems is absent.

"her campaign had much harsher rhetoric when he stood in her way, with attacks including the allegation that he sold his principles when he broke party ranks and voted to legalize same-sex marriage." More left wing extremist twisting of the facts. McDonald's sellout is not an allegation, he sold his vote on Cuomo's marriage exception bill, his principles, and his constituents for a half a million dollar payout from homosexuals and everyone knows it. These facts are not harsh rhetoric and attacks, they are facts; facts, and they are the reason she ran; there was no response to "standing in her way," she wouldn't have been there if he had done the right thing.

Alex: Garbage in, garbage out. A person becomes what they feed themselves. Maybe they don't have the nerve to shoot someone, so they run them off the road, cut them off, tailgate, run through traffic signals to be first; road rage. General incivility, narcissism, willing to kill a baby for a 10 second muscle spasm, this all comes from what is fed to the brain. Life is cheap.

Re: Hughes, "New York ... have less than 50 percent of their populations working"
That must be why NY was a sure win for Obama.

There aught to be money left over. They have conveniently ignored last winter's savings on plowing and salting, both which were nearly non existent due to fair weather. When we get a lot of snow and freezing they are quick to tell us what it costs, but when there is a windfall savings all we hear is more crying over money.

The Santa is in the first video, kburrell.
Magic and Myth must be a Halloween parade, hardly the tradition of a once Christmas Parade, really pathetic. Fortunately the Amsterdam band missed that and played some nice Christmas songs.

A likely outcome since the Nobama adm. isn't defending our laws
