    Akshar to resign from senate & run for sheriff

    Thank you Gordon. I guess the point is, aside from the economics of it, that we have not seen a truly qualified Sheriff for as long as I can remember. We had "Toys For Tots" Tony Ruffo, who was interesting, but a buffoon.....Geno DeAngelo. who was relegated to the Training Academy (you and I both know what that meant back in the day), and Harder, who is not well-informed, is hugely egotistical, and stubborn as a mule. This job requires more then that. It's a big operation, and requires a professional with vetted credentials, as opposed to who is better at shaking hands and kissing babies for votes.

    Well, beats me, Mr. Met. It's hard to fix a soup sandwich. Turn it into an incubator to encourage new business? Hard to do with NYS taxes and regulations being what they are. It won't come back as retail space. The US has more than double the retail space per customer than any country in Europe......we simply over did it. The villages have relied on tax revenue from dying sources for along time. IBM, the Oakdale Mall....it's time for consolidation and cost savings. Areas of the country that are moving up do not have a bunch of tiny villages with redundant services.

    Is there anybody out there?

    It looks and feels great, Independent. A nice improvement. Thank you for all that you do to support free discourse and discussion. Salute!

    And you, Former. I do admire your thoughtful commentary, regardless of whether we agree or not, Sir!

    Parmalee and Stray all at once? YAY! I had stopped even checking in as I thought it was dead. Very nice, and good to see you all.

    Broome's biggest fraud: John "Sonny" Manculich

    That crap has been going on since I worked there in the late 70's....Benny DiLorenzo. You could not break that monopoly. It was a scam then, and apparently still is..... Edit: Very poor timing on my part. I read the Pressconnects OBITS today and saw Mr, DiLorenzo there. My apologies.....no disrespect intended to one who just passed.. I still stand by my point, however, that the whole towing thing with the Sheriff's Department is a scam. Been there, seen it first hand.

    Oakdale Mall

    Well, Mr. Met, just an opinion. We don't care to drive to a mall, find parking, and walk around trying to find what you came there for, and deal with screaming kids and wise-ass teenagers hanging around. We prefer to get on-line and order what we need, and it shows up, cheaper and less time spent that can be used to garden, clean, or just hang out on the deck. The global economy has changed, and if workers are getting screwed, look to the corporations that employ them and use them daily, while getting tax cuts and paying CEOs astronomical salaries and benefits. It's plain as day. I believe in capitalism, but also in a balanced equation between those that work bottom to top. It's a sad state of affairs.

    I'm with you, TWC! Used to go up there and buy tokens to play Asteroids and Death Race 2000 for hours with friends. Those were the days, but they are long gone now.

    Harder retiring would be a great thing....he was past his expiration date before he ran the first time. Ashkar? Really? This whole "elected" Sheriff thing should have gone out of style when the west was won. Time for a Sheriff to do a Sheriff's required duties, and hire a police professional to run a county police agency. Get rid of highly redundant and expensive village police forces. Do we really need a couple of police chiefs 4 miles from each other? Nope.....it will happen eventually...the rest of the parts of the country that are progressive made these changes years or decades ago.

    Welcome Back to BCVoice!

    Huh. That's cool....I had thought that it was shut down for good. The new look is quite nice. Thank you, Sir!
  11. Beats me what's up with that. Local topic... should be left alone.

    Daily Post Limit

    Sorry, SE, but I disagree. It's allegedly a forum for free discussion, and while I disagree with the opinions of many on here, I defend their right to have their say. That's an American value, in my estimation. People process thing differently. I modify my posts all of the time over a few minutes, to try and get it out right. '75 just adds on to reinforce and/or clarify, if I'm not mistaken. It's all good. Only Bingoloid seems to be able to get his $h1t in one bag consistently.

    I'm quite capable of forming my own opinions, '75. Don't need any MSM input

    Interesting thing there about General Kelly's opinion on Robert E. Lee, getting castigated for calling him a "gentleman". He was, and it was a different place in time. They ignore or fail to research things...in later life General Lee (rtd) opined in his diaries that his soldiers fought valiantly, but that he wished that it had been for a better cause. Revisionist history doesn't change a thing...it masks the truth, warts and all.

    LOL...having been piled upon, I do agree about the msinstream media failing to do real news, Fox included. It's hard to discern the truth from the hubbub. Here's the thing. Whenever someone discusses a shortcoming of Trump, the immediate response is "what about Hillary or Obama"? Just like people did to GW. That is partisan blindness. If I comment on a Trump disaster, it does not in any way mean that I am a Hillary supporter. I think that all mainstream media and both political parties are disingenuous.
  16. I suspected as much...all accusations at this point, but I'm not surprised. I sort of liked Bernie's honesty, and figured he wouldn't ever get his really radical stuff through Congress anyway. http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/02/politics/elizabeth-warren-democratic-party/index.html

    To Be Fair, Democratic Party Also Flocked Up

    I would have preferred Biden to any of the rest.

    Halloween Costumes

    I don't get this part. On Halloween you get to dress up and have fun. Now some college kid is in trouble for dressing up as Pocohantas? Cultural appropriation? I'm in big trouble with pirates, female vampires, the Grey Mouser, and Racer X now 🤔 Great. http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/03/sorority-system-condemns-member-for-dressing-up-as-pocahontas/ 😌

    'These people are failing to report income for tax purposes, while bitching that others need to pay more in taxes." Let's label them "Manafortanistas' Many don't, at the bottom and the top. All bad, but I betcha tax evasion at the top costs the middle class a whole lot more. Trump's tax returns? (and the Clinton Foundation?). A typical means of keeping the middle class in line is to blame the slackers while reaping the profits.. giving lip service and nothing else. Look at where the middle class is...it ain't gonna get better. The last four Presidents have all allowed it. Trump is no different except for words. Those of you who believe in "the deep state" should be looking hard at that... it's about money, not parties. It's not government worker bees... it's the ones who run the show...from both entrenched parties, and Trump will not be your savior. This reminds me of two Hotrods running down an inescapable track, trying to beat each other, but you can't get off the track and think about anything else. Maybe we should be fed up with them all?

    Funny thing there Jack...if someone disagrees with Trump or is concerned with his behavior, all of a sudden everyone who does is labeled as a "leftist" by you, unless they agree and join the torch and pitchfork parade. That is a very scary train of thought, and completely undermines democracy and free speech. Frankly, that could be our collective downfall as a nation...the lack of ability to discuss and debate, and realize that it is our independent thought that inspired our founding Fathers. Bergdahl got off way too easy..why is it the right or left's fault? The Judge called it.

    The bottle had hardly begun, my friend. Why do you need to take a cheap shot? The word has more than one meaning: in·ti·mate2 ˈin(t)əˌmāt/ verb verb: intimate; 3rd person present: intimates; past tense: intimated; past participle: intimated; gerund or present participle: intimating imply or hint. "he had already intimated that he might not be able to continue" state or make known. "Mr. Hutchison has intimated his decision to retire" I happened to agree that Antifa is a domestic terrorist group, as well as others. You seem to want to kick not only those who disagree with you, but also those that don't completely parrot your line of thought. To imply through violence that you are right, is....wrong. That's what high school bullies do, not intelligent peeps that are all citizens like you.

    Antifa and White Supremacists who intimate through violence should all be considered domestic terrorists, eaually.
