West Hampton Dunes Village, Residents Challenge Authority Of Town Trustees

Rego Park is actually a very nice place to live, the name comes from the combination of two words "real good" to get Rego. But I digress, WHDunes does not resemble Rego Park, more like, um , what is the name of that town, oh yes "Look-at-me-my-over-sized-ugly-McMansion-is-only-dwarfed-by-my-oversized-ego"ville or Snooki-ville, take your pick.

Town Releases Details Of Sordi Separation Agreement

Nature:

Actually the assistant town attorneys stay on even after they are seasoned. Why? Because they can get paid by the Town, earn benefits from the Town and keep a private practice "on the side". Tax payer financed law practice!

East Hampton Town was even worse until the side practices were banned. " Feb 16, 11 3:42 PM

Schneiderman, Kelly Exchange Words At Flanders Meeting

I know this sounds rather old fashioned as I am, but Mr. Kelly, would it have hurt to have worn a jacket and tie, and shaved? " Sep 16, 11 10:35 AM

Throne-Holst And Team Release Campaign Video

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. So, for the Republicans who filed an ethics complaint, have you forgotten a few years back when town employees on town time were using town vehicles to stuff Republican campaign literature into people's mailboxes?

If the Supervisor thing does not work out for ATH, perhaps Dancing With the Stars???" Oct 27, 11 12:19 PM

Bishop, Altschuler Joust Over Ethics, Outsourcing During Riverhead Debate

Those arguing about health insurance have it all wrong. It is not the uninsured that cause problems. The problem is that 30% of the population use up 80% of health care resources because of the nature of their chronic illnesses.

And no, I am not speaking of people with cancer or other diseases they cannot control. I am speaking of those who are overweight, who smoke, who drink to excess, who do not exercise and take no personal responsibility for their well being. Typical medical issues, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, chronic kidney and liver problems. These conditions require medication, surgery, frequent tests and physician visits, all of which are expensive but could be avoided or reduced with slight changes in lifestyle.

Such people may have insurance, but the costs associated with treating them are overwhelming, so everyone's premiums are raised and hospitals/physicians lose tons of money treating them because of severly reduced reimbursement rates from Medicare/Medicaid.

Please save your responses about liberty and personal freedom, blah, blah, blah. Yes, you have right to drink 23 large sugary sodas every day and smoke three packs a day, but if you don't want the government involved in your life, then when you need surgery because of your lifestyle choices, dont come crying to government programs to pay for your medical care, you cannot have it both ways.

Every politican knows this, but they will never tell voters to behave responsibly because then they get voted out of office.

Razza,

I never used the word "ban", nor do we need the government monitoring or enforcing what we eat, drink and do. That should be left to the individual. Why is it that the only solution is to have government regulate? That never works, and creates more questions than answers. But, along with individual freedom comes individual responsibility, can't have one without the other, no way, no how.

The simple solution, regulate your own behavior, why? Because, it only benefits you! Cut back (notice, I did not say ban or outlaw) on the smokes, drinks, bad food and get some exercise and you may notice you need less trips to the doctor, less medication. Why, we as a society ignore preventative health care is a mystery.
