Bishop Votes In Support Of Training Of Syrian Rebels To Fight ISIS

What? There was always supposed to a small quick deployment force left in Iraq after the major withdrawal, but your president failed to negotiate a status of forces agreement with the Iraqis.

It's funny that Obama and his bootlickers, including Phil Motyka, have been shouting about how wonderful it was that Obama pulled all the troops out of Iraq, and now that it's looking like a mistake, it was really GWB responsible for the troop pullout, LOL!

But hey, at least Al Queda is "on the run" and we're facing nothing more than a "JV" team now." Sep 19, 14 5:38 PM

Dear Mr.Z,

Your assertion that the it is not appropriate for the President to return a salute is simply not correct. It is absolutely appropriate. First, a salute is a sign of respect for the rank or office, not the person. Returning the salute is a sign of mutual respect. A private who salutes a 5 Star General will have the salute returned.

Every President, including Obama, have returned salutes. Have they all been inappropriately returning salutes for 200 years?

Why on earth some of you will perform intellectual origami to protect this president regardless of how big or small the mistake is very odd.

How can you make such a claim when every president has " Sep 26, 14 4:59 PM

UPDATE: Cleaning At Southampton After Enterovirus Diagnosis Underway

What you describe is a possibility.

Are you capable of acknowledging that it's also possible that the virus traveled with the "border children" from an area where that disease is prevalent? Or, for reasons having nothing to do with logic, you're going to insist that it's absolutely not a possibility." Oct 14, 14 6:59 PM

Springs School Parents Speak Out Against Language Barrier In District

Do you believe that America should be forced to become a bi-lingual nation to accommodate the vast number of Spanish speakers crossing our borders?" Mar 24, 16 12:51 PM

I'm sorry, you must have misunderstood me.

I'm referring specifically to things like schools, government offices, and other taxpayer funded activities.

Should they all be required by law to accommodate Spanish speakers? That is, should all government documents be available in Spanish? Should government offices be required to have a Spanish translator available?" Mar 24, 16 5:06 PM

Amagansett CAC Meeting On Affordable Housing Project Draws Large Crowd Monday Night

"not Section 8 housing"

You may support the project, and are obviously passionate about it since you're equating anyone who opposes it with the Ku Klux Klan, but it's not necessary to lie about it even if you think your deception is being done in the name of a good cause.

On May 14th, 2014 Suffolk County amended its "Human Rights Law" to make it illegal to discriminate against someone who's using Section 8 vouchers. "Workforce Housing" is a convenient title but in no way limits tenants to working people,


-Adds lawful source of income as a protected category,

"" May 10, 16 8:54 AM

Do you still stand by your statement that these apartments won't be available as Section 8 rentals?

The preferences you describe are unenforceable and in some cases, illegal (IE, Veterans, since military status is explicitly not permitted to be used as a factor in housing decisions in NYS).

There are many projects like this that have been going up at the urging of the department of Housing and Urban Development. Right now the Section 8 voucher rate for a 2 bedroom in Suffolk is about $1600/mo. HUD's proposed new "small area" rates will give higher amounts to specific zip codes, instead of a uniform county rate. For Amagansett, it will be $1900/mo.

These payments are made directly to the company running the complex. If you read the prospectus for these projects, as I have, you can see they are counting on these 100% reliable payments (vs a private tenant), and there's a whole slew of financial incentives to get as many Section 8 tenants into communities lacking diversity as possible.

I really don't care one way or another in this case, but I loath the bait and switch, the tugging at emotions, and the lies used to sell one thing and deliver another." May 10, 16 5:32 PM

Exactly. dfree no doubt thinks that:

"Regulation" and "militia" in 18th century English means what it does today.

In 18th century parlance the former simply means "well functioning" and the later meant all men who were of military age. "Regulation" as in "government regulation" did not exist as a term when the document was written.

Couple that with the fact that every other element of the Bill of Rights is an individual, not collective right, along with the founders' copious writings on the contrast between a free citizens and a subject in regards to arms, and it's clear it was meant to protect an individual's right to bear arms. Hunting and target shooting never entered the debate over this amendment, as those aren't the essential right they were trying to prevent the government from infringing upon.

This analysis of the 2nd Amendment is the consensus understanding among constitutional scholars and historians." Aug 8, 16 12:14 PM

East Quogue Woman To Fight Climate Change At United Nations Conference

Is passion all that matters? No criticism is allowed because she sincerely believes in what she's advocating? She wants American taxpaying families to make reparations? From whom, to whom, and for what?

Please answer one simple question. If her demands that all pipelines be shut down immediately were met, how would the resulting skyrocketing cost of energy make the world a better place? " Oct 31, 16 10:04 AM

Without substance? Are you saying she's not advocating for policies that will make energy more expensive?

I'd love to hear an explanation about how that's not the case, but I can feel you inching away towards your safe space with your nonsensical criticism of my comment as lacking substance.

The cost of the policies she and her fellow travelers to Morocco are advocating will be borne by those who can least afford it. It wouldn't be as objectionable if that was brought out right up front. You will need to use less heat, you may have to give up air conditioning, your access to meat (already targeted by climate activists) will need to be curtailed. Instead, it's deceptively presented as all unicorns and rainbows without any negative consequences." Oct 31, 16 10:25 AM

Pollster: Every Indicator Points To Zeldin Victory In Congressional Race

And as if they were making a campaign donation-in-kind, 27east simply wrote what the Dems told them do, without checking, without questioning, without verifying. They did manage to fit in a swipe about the accusations made against Trump, but didn't find anything negative about Clinton newsworthy enough to mention, lol. " Nov 3, 16 7:53 PM

That's simply not true. I would site his work on getting HR 1887 passed, the Plum Island bill, as significant, as an example.

He has held constituent clinics an order of magnitude more often than his predecessor Bishop did, and from what I've been able to glean, has been very effective at helping locals resolve issues through his interventions.

The fact is, there's nothing Zeldin could ever do to gain your support, short of becoming a democrat. " Nov 3, 16 8:54 PM

East End Employers Say Immigrant Workers Pay Taxes, Provide Foundation For Local Economy

Capitalism works by utilizing the cheapest labor you can find, even if it means breaking the law to do so? If we don't like it we can leave? So are you anti-union too? Surely cheaper workers can be found to replace those currently enjoying the protection of a union, right? " Mar 2, 17 9:53 AM

I can answer this. Illegal aliens can and do apply for ITIN (Taxpayer identification numbers). All but a small minority of ITIN users are illegal aliens. Typically they will claim the maximum exemption to ensure deductions are the absolute minimum. Then, if filing would bring them a refund, they do it. How could they be getting a refund after paying almost nothing in federal income taxes? Child tax credits. In 2007 the IRS Inspector General estimated about $2.4 billion in fraudulent payments of the credit to ITIN holders, in 2015, the inspectors report estimated the annual fraud of the Child Tax Credit to be around $5 billion. As you can imagine, no refund=no file. There are no consequences for illegals who don't file." Mar 2, 17 1:51 PM

Zeldin Supports Principles Of GOP Health Care Plan

Republicans don't "hate" government, they simply want it to function within the bounds established within our Constitutional framework.

If your anology is accurate, how can anyone expect leftists like you to do what's in the best interests of a nation you characterize as illegitimately founded by slaveowners, stolen from Indians, and the preeminent source of racism/sexism/misogyny not to mention warmongering and environmental crimes?

It would seem you would strive to destroy this "evil" nation as founded, and that does align perfectly with the policies your side espouses. You know, endless apologies and reparations, open borders, unilateral disarmament, shackling our business and failing to defend our trade interests. America Last, the policy of the globalist left."
