Governor  Cuomo:

Recently on the WCNY radio program you made statements concerning certain New Yorkers. In case you forgot it, here's what you said:

“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Let me inform you about these extreme conservatives. First of all they have the right to think the way they do. Secondly these people you dislike are also educated, hard working, tax paying, God fearing, church going citizens who also volunteer for the local fire departments, ambulance corps, and youth sports, and do not use the social services the government provides.  You stated that they do not have a place in the state of New York. Don't worry Governor, they are no longer here. You and your predecessors (especially your father) as well as the Assembly and Senate pushed them out of the Empire State. These people were taxed and regulated right out of New York. Ever increasing taxes, fees, licencing, tolls, and regulations made it difficult for the middle class and businesses to stay in New York. Here's a short list of companies that left New York, or shed its workforce: General Electric, Oneida Ltd, General Motors, Kodak, Xerox, Miller Brewing, Nestle, Carrier, IBM, and Remington Arms are looking for a new state to move to. 

The end result: 3.4 million people left New York in 10 years. I am included in this number. These people are the educated tax payers that provided jobs and tax revenue. These people did not burden the social service system. The people moving to New York now? Low skilled immigrants, not proficient in English, burdening the social welfare system. The people that remain are the people who are either retired, work for government, or works a service job, or is a burden to the taxpayer! 

If you want to rid New York of all conservatives, keep doing what you are doing, they will leave eventually.

An open letter to Sen. chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Hon. Charles E. Schumer
322 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Senator Schumer:

Recently you made a comment concerning military retirement. It can be read here to jog your memory. 

"Civilian federal employees have been cut, cut, cut. I think there was a feeling, if you’re going to cut them further, which was done, that the military retirees should have about an equal amount. It’s small.”  

“They’re going to have to pay a tiny, little bit into it, which they never have,”  

Senator,the American people cannot begin to repay the debt we owe the American veteran. From the day they get off the bus at basic training to the day they leave the service it has been hard. They enter the service scared out of their wits as people are constantly yelling at them for trivial things as a making a bed or forgetting a verse to a song all while going through a strenuous physical regimen with little sleep. Then once they complete all the necessary training (most of which their enlistment bonuses depend on), they are sent out into the field. At which time they get to experience many sleepless nights, training, conducting maintenance, standing guard watch, and all sorts of maneuvers all while not on the front lines! Our brightest and best are sent to hellholes all over the globe sometimes with no defined mission and rules of engagement that give our enemies the upper hand. These men and women are sent overseas at a moment's notice for long periods of time. Some GI's sent overseas are not on the front line but still have to leave their families behind on what's known as an unaccompanied tour. 

Throughout their service, they get to experience changing of duty stations, where their family cannot establish roots and children cannot have long term friendships. While the GI is deployed, the spouse at home has to take the role of mother and father, usually with family far far away. Meanwhile that GI downrange had to lose close friends in battle, and wonder why he is still alive. 

As a reward for their service military personnel and their dependents receive substandard housing, substandard medical care, substandard public schools if they are deployed overseas. These people get to miss countless birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgivings, Christmases, birth of children and deaths of loved ones. You have active duty GI's with ten or more years of service on WIC!  Critics will say that military personnel, dependents and retirees can shop at commissaries and buy gas on base. I hate to tell you that due to capitalism, you can buy those same things off base at a lower price. Now you want to tell these people they must sacrifice more? Meanwhile we spend billions of dollars on foreign aid, billions on welfare programs such as EBT. Billions of dollars on Medicaid/Medicare. Billions on subsidized housing, and billions spying on hard working Americans. When will it end? 

Senator, we need to give those who protected this nation everything the deserve and then some!
