I've never understood politicians who criticize politics to the public as if they are not part ofRead More the problem? Are you saying that politicians in Albany have failed and the result was a disaster? Have you checked your business card lately?

I've never understood politicians who criticize politics to the public as if they are not part ofRead More the problem? Are you saying that politicians in Albany have failed and the result was a disaster? Have you checked your business card lately? Your solution - an Albany politician is going to propose the very thing that was proposed by an Albany politician last time but didn't work. I guess we can surmise you expect a different result from the very same actions. You sure?

Let me get this straight. LILCO built Shoreham but was never allowed to open it although it's costRead More made it onto the rate base. That made electric power too expensive on LI, so politicians, probably egged on my bond issuers, sold the plan to ... it makes my head hurt! They hired BUG to run it and financed the debt with public backed bonds to decrease the interest. Then somehow National Grid became involved and the management became the usual political patronage swamp. Now the politicians want to sell it back to the public? Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhk! My question is: How much of the original, I think, billion dollars that was financed with public bonds 25 years ago has been retired? Are we proposing refinancing a portion of the debt yet again?!!!! That would be an outrage. It's already an outrage that the public was sold on the takeover, endorsed it and was left with holding the bag. I don't know how to fix it. The plan doesn't inspire me.

Although music is important and certainly aids in the ability to learn precepts more easily, what isRead More Thiele doing to prevent common core from destroying what is left of the education of our children and grandchildren? Our high school grads could not pass the 4th grade tests of a century ago, we don't teach reasoning and critical thinking skills, and sadly we are developing a generation of compliant students incapable of deciding what is moral or what the long term consequences of their actions will bring.

The bill should keep teenagers and college students at a lower minimum wage. Is a teenage caddyRead More earning tips really worth $9/hr? This bill will reduce the number of jobs for teens and young adults who need training and have low skills. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Kids under 19 are 1/4 of the min wage population, and young adults under 24 are another 1/4, so 1/2 the population isn't "working families".

Hey Fred, why don't you have on your Assembly web site and how you voted for the SAFE Act? In yourRead More response to my letter you said how good it was, well, if it is so good why don't you have the guts to let the people you represent know about the act and how you voted? Hey Progressive Patch, why don't you worthless 'journalist' ask some questions? Taylor, Brendan, go do some thing.

At this rate aren't they ALL Black History month? You got something against our brothers andRead More sisters that you would only give them one month. White man gets 11 months and the Black man gets 1 month? Count this as the beginning first salvo in the move towards a Black History January -June. You whiteys can have June to December.

You said it, Yogi! The last thing that can remedy the power insanity on LI is privatizing it.

After Sandy it took Greenport one hour for all the electric to be restored.Municipalities shouldRead More look into establishing there own facilities. In regards to the debt we didn't create it why should we pay it.

So, Fred, what have you done to makeover the Public Service Commission? And where is yourRead More legislation that would enable Long Islanders to choose among electrical power suppliers as in other states? "Innocent Long Islanders have been equally victimized by corporate greed and lack of regulatory oversight". But what of legislative intransigence? Talk is cheap, Fred!

Well Fred I see you voted yea for the gun control legislation.I always knew you were a piece ofRead More crap!!!!

If gun supporters are resting their argument on the need to defend against tyranny, what are youRead More waiting for? Your gun hasn't protected you against tyranny to this point and you aren't willing to use it against your government anyway.

You have to be careful with fascists, I am sure Herr Cuomo is quite well protected by heavily armedRead More assault weapon wielding high-capacity magazine equipped storm, er, I mean, state troopers. No need to give justification to the brownshirts yet, we still have this thing called the 'legal process' to go thru, all the way up to the SCOTUS. Say, how is Adolf Cuomo making out with that hurricane clean up? Done yet? Or helping the state's economy rebound? Oh, unemployment is still 8.3%. Crumbling roads and bridges? Still crumbling. But trashing our rights and using the blood of children to do so? Yeah, old Il Douchebag has got that covered.

This was a well written article. It is full of great newws for East Emd families. There was noRead More mention of Erin's Law, which passed on April 30 th , 2012 in New York. I would like to read about how the provisions of that law will be implemented in our public schools.

These achievements reflect progress in Albany thanks to Governor Cuomo's leadership and theRead More dedicated efforts of Assemblyman Thiele. Our Assemblyman is engaged in legislation and remains connected to his local constituents in an exemplary way. We are fortunate to have such a capable and accessible representative of our community and personal interests. Steven A. Ludsin, East Hampton, New York

ANOTHER story about prescription drug abuse. The obsessional focus on illicit use causes millionsRead More of Americans to suffer needlessly because doctors are too afraid to dispense meds that could endanger their license to practice. It is not uncommon for a primary care physician to announce at the beginning of an office visit with a new patient that the doesn't write prescriptions for "pain pills". Patients in pain must first find a doctor who believes that medical ethics compel him to manage a patient's pain and then must strike the right note in asking for help so that the doctor doesn't suspect him of exhibiting "drug seeking behavior". Rather then suffer the humiliation of being suspected of being a "drug abuser", most patients simply choose to suffer. Addiction is a terrible thing but there is a better way to combat it than by layering on more and more laws that debase medical practice and cause unnecessary suffering to innocent Americans. This proposed law just takes us further down the wrong path. Treatment works, criminalization doesn't. It is past time for Assemblyman Thiele and other legislators to be pragmatic, jettison the baggage of failed attempts, stand up to the enforcement and incarceration lobby, and initiate a program that actually has a record or WORKING (e.g. Portugal.)

The government should attack the cause as well as the effect.

K May 2, 2012 at 06:44 pm
The fact of the matter is that this isn't campaign finance reform nor would it give more voice toRead More the people. The government would be taking the cash, putting it into a large fund and giving it to candidates. I feel confident in my ability to contribute my own money directly to a candidate and would like to see corporate interests curtailed. This only addresses private donors and sticks a new government entity between an individual voter and a candidate. If you want real campaign finance reform you have got to clear government out from between the candidates and the voters and promote that relationship and address the corporate funds.
