Trump is 'on the money' about illegals. You only have to live in a Border State to understand the terrible consequences of allowing a free-flow of people crossing over...the schools, hospitals and social systems are overcrowded and hardpressed to afford the cost of humanitarian efforts. Their refusal to assimilate, learn the language, while milking every possible program is causing a lot of stress on ordinary citizens. I don't think Americans are cruel in any way...quite the contrary. However, there are real concerns here, at every level, and it's time an honest dialogue was initiated. View Comment
Leadership, and the lack thereof. Outside of primping for his photo-op SHOULD these criminals be recaptured, not a word from the Governor...when you have weakness at the top, it filters all the way down!! It's an embarrassment to the State to have these two guys still on the loose. View Comment
This is what happens when you don't get the vote out….another term with this Jerk….and this would be President!! He's done absolutely nothing for the State of New York, or the citizens, since he's in office His 'campaign' for a second term reflected who he is…hide under the covers until the storm passes and hope no one has the interest in voting…..a shoo-in. Wake up New York! View Comment
Who does she know in NY….this almost sounds like a "destination bound" runaway….she doesn't look as if she has a purse with her in addition to her not having a coat. I hope the police are looking at her emails/facebook page.
God watch over her ! View Comment
I'd love to know who are the "we the people" to whom you are referring! The "we the people" who desperately need the jobs that will never materialize now.
Maybe they can pick up some casino jobs which will be oh so much better for the State, that is, if you like increased drugs, prostitution, lowlife, and all that this brings to an area!….THIS is the real Gov. Cuomo! View Comment
That's why he and the "canopener queen" make a pair!!
Seriously, I am saddened for all New Yorkers right now to have this idiot re-elected. In the most corrupt State in the Union, he was destined to be re-elected; unfortunately, for the good people of New York he will continue to do what he has already done.....nothing. You are right about him being a dummy and incompetent so transparent in his scientist answer. Isn't this his JOB to know and decide what is right for the State?....scientists aren't elected officials. Well, What he does have is the "wiseguy" mentality. I wouldn't at all be surprised if you see gambling from the airports in Queens to Rochester in the coming yes.r. This will be his answer to jobs!.....a sad day in New York. View Comment
I find your comments "seriously creepy" not to mention ignorant. Homeschooling children has become a viable alternative in today's world. Do you really think "critical thinking skills" are coming from the failed public school environment, across most of the nation, today? The "outside influences" you are referring to can encompass drug dealing, bullying and physical harm, while teachers turn their heads....haven't you heard of what's happening on the school buses let alone the classrooms. Many States are embracing online learning and it is proving very effective, not to mention providing a safe environment for learning. It's a new day, Ms/Mr. Levin. View Comment
I'm with you cjmesq: funny we didn't hear much from Andy about his concern for "the continued courage and sacrifice" of our military before his wobly run for re-election....this trip is as stupid as the one he took to Israel...... View Comment
What I further cannot understand is, didn't these two parents speak all day....and chat about the child being dropped off, how was he doing, happy, sad, so forth?
I remember so long ago dropping my little one at pre-K and in those days we could stay a little...then at some point, during the day, speak to your husband (wife in this case) and talk about your child, his mood, etc. Something doesn't ring right with this story? OR they are two incredibly cold, uncaring people. This is such an awful tragedy and I do think further investigation is warrented. View Comment
I think the Dems have inspired a "backfire" issue here. Mr. Astorino's additional Consulting, which he does well, only supports the fact that he is a WORKING man....Cuomo continues to hide in Albany, as he did in the last Gubernatorial election, doing God Knows What, saying nothing and keeping out of sight, just waiting for the election to be over...he believes he is a shoo-in. Mr. Astorino takes responsibility for the County, campaigns, speaks intelligently, publicly and often regarding issues, and has a media responsibility. I, for one, want a Governor who WORKS, not hides. It's time for a Change if New Yorkers don't want this State nosediving. The latest CNBC poll puts New York nearly dead-last as desirable States to live in, along with the desirablity of the business climate. These are jobs. A State cannot exist without the Corporate Presence. You'd see how quickly the layoffs begin at the State level if Corporations stop coming in...it's time to do the homework. View Comment
This is something new....perhaps we can blame this outrageous escalation in drug us ON the Governor....if it weren't that he is up for re-election, this would remain a non-essential item....the Governor isn't in the loop for the common resident in New York...the escalation of heroin use in the schools in Westchester County alone is shocking and not at all recent.....the monies for drug enforcement and enhancement of programs should have been on the table the very first year of his Governorship....it is now a "crumb"tossed out because Cuomo is desperate for re-election.

This article is Hilarious...Truth Squad?! This "Squad" eminating from a Governor who disbanded The Moreland Commission barely a month ago. The Commission was set up with the focus of fighting unethical behaviour common in Albany, the Judiciary, Campaign financing and hundreds of other issues which need to be addressed in New York State. THIS is the Governor who said" It's my commission and I can do what I like with a Commission I started" (in other words)- so he did....he disbanded it. There are articles all over the internet on it. I personally think Gov. Cuomo ought to exchange his goons for truth for a good "ad man" .... I hope Astorino picks up on this....it's truly hilarious. View Comment
Abortion, gun control, gay rights....all important and valid issues. HOWEVER, if you don't have smart leadership, nothing gets accomplished...isn't Cuomo a prime example. What you can expect from this throwback "thug" is coverup (Moreland Commission on Ethics disbanded), the pipeline to encourage jobs (three years of "review"), continuing the Same entrenched leadership in Albany, Sheldon Silver and the like.....oh for Term Limits!!....Rob Astorino has New, With It, and Open surrounding him...it's time for the Greatest State to draw Corporations once again, not Gambling and what that draws!!

New York is in trouble from the ground up...special interst groups have been running this State far too long. No young person wants to live here any longer, nor can they afford to.....who wants to return home to mom and dad, yet it is totally unaffordable once they leave college. This is why Houston, San Antonio and Austin are draining our young and brightest.....affordability!! Gov. Cuomo is so out of touch with what the average middle-class guy wants from his State...time for him to go, and Astorino is Perfect....young, smart, "with it", and lovely young family to look at....breath of fresh air all around!!
