Not lunatics, just power hungry pre-teens

Unbelievably, this farce in
Then there is my favorite NY pol, Dean Skelos. I love hearing his sound bites, if only to nearly double over in laughter. He claims to want some form of power sharing, but only after the 31 democrats agree that his coup was fair and legal. Why does he need this? No one really knows. But, read Nathan Farb’s article in the ADK this week, and you’ll see where the majority has some serious perks – office space, pork money, appointing members to committees as well as other nepotistic positions. Terms like ‘secretary’ get thrown around. Not the secretary making 28K a year. We’re talking $130,000 a year secretaries. The Republicans, and Skelos controlled these purse strings for 40 years and he can’t fathom giving up any of his perks. But back to sound bites. Skelos said earlier this week that this ‘impasse could be broken if ‘a brave Democrat broke ranks’. Oh Deanny! How about if one brave GOP member broke ranks? If Betty Little chose to break ranks, this whole fiasco would be over IMMEDIATELY. But no, I guess if a gop’er broke ranks, Skelly would lose out on everything. Has to be a brave democrat. Keep his party weak and timid, then he keeps power. But, as if it couldn’t get better, he dueled with Democratic Senator Karl Kruger for most self absorbed, ridiculous, idiotic quote. Kruger stated ‘It’s a sad comment, that to this day, his staff still doesn’t understand the legislative process. You don’t throw kerosene on it’ . This quip after
Even Betty Little has had little good to say at all since her party lost majority status. From being my favorite senator, to a whining minority in an instant has really soured me on her. More about power and party than ideas and doing the people’s business seems to be what she’s about now. Today, she comes out with support for binding arbitration to change the way things are done in the senate. Oh. It was fine when they held the keys for 40 years, treated the minority like their vassals, but now that they are the serfs, she demands changes? Maybe her picture needs to be put next to the words disingenuous and hypocrisy in the dictionary.
People always talk about ‘throw all the bums out’. I usually refrain from that, because the alternative is often worse. But now? What’s worse than a senate who refuses to do work? One’s who a kindergarten teacher would chastise for the way they are behaving? I for one will be voting for whoever is against her. She’s the 45th district senator. This includes Franklin, Essex, Clinton and
A quick shout out to the LaVair boys. Chris is leading the Bomber division up at Airborne, and Bobby won last week's feature. And Bob 'The Dope' Seidenstein - where were ya? Afraid to get beat by a guy pushing a baby jogger - again? Finally - Good luck Bill Peer, Phil Gallo and Nancy Battaglia, who are all tackling the Tinman this weekend.
