President Obama's parents and grandparents were not communists or socialists. He spent very little if any time in Kenya, some time in Indonesia, which is NOT in Europe, no time in Europe as a child, and spent much time in Hawaii, which is part of the United States, and has been a state since 1960. It TELLS me, wmarincic, (you do not need an apostrophe between the final L and the S in the word tells) that to debate you is a waste of time.

Isn't it strange that, according to writers like Albright1, FrankLowe, Wmarincic, Phil2008, Muggy, and perhaps a few other readers of these letters, cuts are NOT really cuts, using words such as "hyperbole" incorrectly doesn't matter, Liberals have no common sense, yet slightly veiled, and crude references to our president remain without comment. What does that tell you?

Mr. Dankanich, of Rexford, your glaring lack of facts, and your true deceitfulness is unfortunate. President Obama has made many many cuts! He signed into law $1 trillion in cuts in discretionary spending for the next ten years. As a part of the 2011 debt agreement, he cut $1.028 billion in discretionary spending through the Budget Control Act. Together with another $676 billion in discretionary savings through annual appropriations bill and interest savings, this will reduce spending by over $2 trillion. Furthermore, the President has proposed and signed into law the elimination of 77 government programs and cut another 52 programs saving more than $30 billion annually. He has also put forward specific cuts in mandatory health spending. I could go on, but I do not want to bore the reader. All these cuts by our President are easily found on the internet.

Mr. Damkanich, I do not know why you purposely mislead the readers of the Gazette letters to the editor with your false claims that the president has never cut anything. Could it be that you simply do not like our president, and will grab at anything to discredit him? Or could it be that you just don't know? Using the word "hyperbole" so incorrectly gives us a clue. Also, your twice used borderline crude reference toward the president may provide another clue. I am surprised that this escaped the eyes of the Editors of our wonderful hometown paper, The Gazette.

Murder is a legal term, meaning the illegal taking of a life. Since abortion is not illegal in this country, you cannot call it murder. Debating someone who does not use words correctly is a waste of time.

If you happened to catch the elderly gentleman on local television who invested with these scammers who now has nothing, while these two go back to their upper middle class homes waiting for their summer sentencing date, you can't help but wonder what is wrong with that picture!

After Raucci's "reign of terror" in the Schenectady school system, where even children had to sit in cold classrooms because he was displeased with adults who taught them, we should have little sympathy for this man, especially on such technical debate points which his lawyers are now bringing up. It is clear to most people that Raucci is one of those who is getting what he deserves. Anything less would be a travesty of justice.
