I went and noticed nobody shopping in the China deal goods tents and genders...everyone just walking by vendors in the barns...food vendor like to stick it to ya.exploiting of kids on stage to waste time...one lemonade stand selling cheaper than the other...and the forcing to park and pay if you did not turn into the free park area.

If they are a private entity they should be assessed for village, school, town and county, state and federal taxes. Are they assessed at true value or are they given reduced assessments because of their name? I would like to hear from the village, town and county assessors what their assessment is.

I for one thought that the fair went very well this year. The events ended at a reasonable hour so all the drunks could find their way to their cars before closing time. the fights were contained very fast. The only problem was the rent-a-cops wouldn't do anything about the drunks pissing beside all the campers. nice thing for the kids to see,let alone wiping their piss off the chairs.if you can't find the johns,you have had too much already!!!

I agree it is over priced. However, if there are families that cannot afford it, maybe they should have less kids. Or they could cut out the.cigarettes and beer.
I take it you favor abortions. Now I wonder if they can't afford to take their kids to the fair what makes you think they can afford abortions? Perhaps you favor public funded abortions but, but that is socialism and you don't favor that. As to beer drinking, cigaette smoking parents, Did you do a head count of how many families living in poverty smoke and drink? You do have a dilemma. You oppose large families who are poor and you oppose public funded abortions for the poor. Abortions for the well-to- do have always been available with such cursory reasons such as my daughter has a woman problem and needs a small operation. Or they can hop a plane to, Japan, Denmark. Norway, Sweden and a host of other nations for that procedure. But alas the poor do not have that luxury.

Well then the poor need to close their legs. It is bad enough I have to pay for booze and smokes for lazy unemployed degenerates. I don't want to raise their kids too. They should sterilize people who make a living out of public assistance.

I am for a 2 child cap on all people. The planet cannot sustain us all. Planned Parenthood does not do abortions with tax dollars. If they did I would.be.all for.it. I.oppose people that complain about things being expensive.while they have a cigarette.in their.mouth and a beer.in their.hand. You know it is not uncommon. Poor people can still fuck, they just need.to.finish outside the vag.

Again you make generalized assumptions. Hold an aspirin between their knees? But yet you oppose public birth control measures. Again you give an analogy similar to the "welfare Queen" who drives up in a new cadillac to get her welfare check. Didn't we prove that serilization is a Hitlerian concept and has been refuted the world over? I suggest you read a little before you post such stupidity.

If they receive county and state subsidies for prizes and discounts for local, village, town and cunty services. If they are doing things on the up and up why fear publishing their expenses and their intake in a detailed budgetary scedule. Per se: How much the carnival pays and how much the fair committee gets. How much is collected from rental space, how much does parking bring in. how much does security cost, etc. Even ptivate entities must account for money spent and taken in. All I see publicized is the record number of people that attended the fair. Sometimes I wonder how a previous year's high record turnout is always broken even when there are two days of bad weather. I wonder if the attendance record book is also cooked?

In the beginning the parades were pretty good. They had more bands, the stockade march group were a big hit. Crowds lined Main Street. Things started to deteriorate, fewer bands, more ambulances, firetrucks police cars interspersed among tractors and wagons and fewer and fewer spectators until they eliminated the parades because of the cost of the bands. One wonders why the cost should be a hindrance for these acts when year after year they maintain they had record turnouts at the fairgrounds?

The Herkimer County Fair proves one thing. The Herkimer County Department of Social Services is the biggest employer in the county. West Virginia has got nothing on Herkimer County.

plus if you leave for longer than the 1/2 hr temp pass, they try and make you pay another $8 admission...so if kids go for rides earlier in day and want to leave and go back later..,another $8. what a rip-off. unbelievable.
The passes are now 15 minutes.

I love the fair they have beautiful display of black men and fat nasty white girls. Preparing to breed to make more light brown skinned mud babies with golden afros to burden the taxpayers with.

some one said that all you have to do is ask to see the books. well if they will not show them to the county then how can you see them if you ask. some one needs to get a court order and see what they have to say. I am sure the county lawyer could get this is he was asked, because of all the concern from the people.

They have nothing to do with the county! They only lease the name from the county. Their a bunch of independent crooks,that do not have to show books to anybody.Its like asking any other private business to see their books,they will tell you to go f yourself!
