Ballot Count Begins; Altschuler Travels To Washington

and now for the rest of the story. the government's ipo will be a huge bust. they will remain majority owners and the stock will need to reach over 130$/share for them to ever break even based on what will remain as their holdings. goldman sachs, merrill and the other investment bankers, however, will have an ab$solute bonanza. can you say 3rd home in the hamptons!? the other big winners? the unions who had their pensions bolstered by the non-union working stiffs who the government fisted by removing all standing guarantees on their underfunded retirement plans. real nice. so, let's review.

the unions get the sweetheart deal as payback for support and the investment bankers win huge from the gm equity sale. and, the government gets back cash that the public will never see keep control of gm.

the non union worker bees get robbed of their pensions, the american public get stuck with stocks that possess significant risk and the chinese get to purchase more of gm. yep, sounds like a winner to me." Nov 17, 10 7:01 PM

Its a shame that people put up with someone like Ragu long enough for them to be owed a lot of money. Just because Ragu is famous, you know, from the sales of the family pasta sauce, doesn't mean he has cash. Lots of these folks, Ragu included, live well beyond their means. " Nov 17, 10 8:09 PM

why do all of these articles refer to "carrying or pushing something"? why be vague? what exactly are the orthodox jews looking to do. perhaps the interpretation of the rules are a little outdated? " Nov 18, 10 8:28 AM

Town Auditors Still Trying To Track Down $1.5 Million In Park Fees

glad to see that I wasn't the only one who read that article and was struck in the dome with the same exact though....only a bureaucrat could even utter the words "i can assure you the money isn't lost, the trick will be finding it''. update, some located, some not...auditors still working on locating the money that is not missing.

in the meantime, money provided by developers to these same bureaucrats seem to be the particular funds that are...well, not missing, but whose whereabouts are not known. no bureaucrats want to suggest the shortfall for these funds that aren't missing can be made up from excess funds that are supposedly sitting around with no use...just kind of hanging out with no home and no real needs to fill. but nope, the funds are definitely not missing.

now the money, given by developers, arrived upon in negotiations with the town, that are not missing, are supposed to be used for parks. are the parks missing too? i think good journalism would mandate a follow up to this one. perhaps you can entitle it ''The Case Of the Kick Backs That Aren't MIssing But that Nobody Can Locate''."

Ballot Count Begins; Altschuler Travels To Washington

highhat. that sounds like wishful thinking. what is the significance of the 3.17% spread there?" Nov 18, 10 11:55 AM

Well, it sounds as though it is about officially over for Bishop. EH and SH have been counted and Altschuler has come out ahead in those districts. As you move west, the picture only improves for Mr. Altschuler as I understand it and the absentees were in Altschuler's favor. Bishop is a good man and was a good civil servant for this area. Hopefully he will find another way to help - it seems that is what drives him." Nov 18, 10 2:05 PM

Bishop Leads Altschuler After Absentee Ballots Counted

Wait, I thought the Press reported he had won? Look, neither the Press nor Newsday has the correct info. In fact, there is not a single factual item that they have reported on this race that was accurate. I'm not trying saying anyone is ahead, I'm suggesting that it makes absolutely NO sense to hang your hat on anything one of these reporters writes. " Nov 19, 10 7:13 AM

fcmann calls me a fraud and then suggests someone has anger issues. you can say whatever you want. i actually do have information that you aren't privy too. and you would be ignorant to think that because the paper doesn't have it or you haven't heard it at the beauty parlor that it isn't valid. the point of my comment is that the paper has no credibility...and my objective was to say that I am not coming from any one preference.

you know, i wish i hadn't addressed fcmann directly. i regret that. she and several others here seem to make a hobby out of getting their aggression out here. i have no intention of getting into it. it can, however, be helpful and enlightening to share information amongst each other. arguments are useless in this format and really don't achieve anything except increasing bloodpressure, dividing people and providing the paper with entertaining content."

The Altschuler Camp has just announced that The Bishop camp has stolen its tent and that their s'mores are coming out better. Not to be outdone, the Bishop camp has decided to tell stories by the bonfire. C'mon. Why doesn't the press give it up I'll be back when there is a winner declared...sometime next May." Nov 20, 10 6:47 AM

things are changing quickly. wait, this is coming over the newswire right this minute. The Bishop Camp has just announced its rabbit season. In response, The Altschuler Camp has just announced that Bishop's Camp is wrong. Altschuler's Camp is saying that its actually duck season. Officials in Yaphank are consulting with DC attorneys to see if its really duck season or rabbit season." Nov 20, 10 6:51 AM

yeah, best laugh of the week. you have problems missy." Nov 20, 10 11:08 PM

just played a game of chess. ironically enough, it was exactly like this race. in the end, the Rook(ie) took the Bishop - who moved more like a pawn." Nov 21, 10 11:01 AM

"Oh, we can't have tax cuts!", says the brainwashed minion. "They simply don't have enough of our money and we need to send them more!". C'mon, give me a break. The truth behind tax cuts is that when you send less of your hard earned loot to the man, your family gets to keep more of it. And no, that's not up for discussion, you don't get that and we aren't on the same planet." Nov 21, 10 1:08 PM

those making over 250k make pay 98% of the tax. no president has ever raised taxes as much as the shady indonesian attorney from chicago." Nov 21, 10 4:15 PM

How is that statement racist? And I don't know Ms. Marple. And they do not have 99% of the wealth. Its INCOME tax. not wealth tax. the highest majority of millionaires make an average of 100,000 per year. But I'm more interested in how that statement was racist. Thank you." Nov 21, 10 6:59 PM

i think it's actually indonesia. 11/9/10 “Let me begin with a simple statement,” Obama said Wednesday in a speech to the Muslim world at the University of Indonesia. He then spoke in Indonesian: “Indonesia is a part of me,” a statement that drew cheers and applause. " Nov 21, 10 9:23 PM

in further proof that the bishop camp is desperate. his parents votes were challenged as part of a mandatory examination of all absentee ballots because of the situation at hand. then, bishop's ''camp'' press released some uppity b.s. about an 11th generation something or other. the altschuler camp had no idea about any of it, it was news to them. then, the sh press makes it look like randy himself picked out bishop's parents and runs with that story! meanwhile all you useful idiots run into your trailer parks and parrot the news as ''truth''. suckas."

oh, you're useful alright!" Nov 22, 10 10:07 AM

as of 1pm, randy is up by 14 votes. two of the ladies are currently eating ham and swiss on rye with mustard. the male appears to be eating a ramen soup. no back to steve for the weather." Nov 22, 10 1:08 PM

As per Richard Tracy of Politics NY Blog, Bishop is up by 19 votes. Local 84 SEIU representatives have just brought cookies. " Nov 22, 10 2:38 PM

bishop has begun to challenge absentee ballots of those that have been outsourced and sought work in other places. Talk about rubbing salt into the wound." Nov 22, 10 2:39 PM
