There are a lot of idiots in the world, and some of them are unfortunately Republican. O’Mara’s Senate district includes Ithaca, Elmira, Corning and my birthplace of Arkport. Conte’s district is a chunk of Suffolk County gerrymandered to include a winding piece of Nassau County. I suspect the voters of both districts may wish to choose another representative in the next election, based solely on the sheer stupidity of their current state Senator and Assemblyman.
New York State
The lovely wife and I got a nice surprise last Saturday. New York State sent us a check for just over $500. It is marked as part of the STAR program for property tax rebates but the explanation with the check also refers to income taxes paid.
Hillary Clinton would be an almost unbeatable candidate for governor. Patterson, umm…. not so much.
