You people have some of the lowest quality of lives in the country and yet are too stupid to realize it. Keep voting the same, greedy people into office because that has worked so well for you in the past.

I'm so glad I moved out of the cheapskate capitol of the world.

Forty years of the state and local governments thinking that they can tax our way to prosperity. Good paying jobs left for more business friendly environments and were replaced by low paying retail jobs. The weather sucks too...so that just adds to the overall depression in the area.

It is indeed small world. If you live on Kramer Drive the world got even smaller!

Part of the problem is the cheapskate mentality of the typical Binghamton or Broome resident. They expect 5 star service at discount prices. For example, you got a Binghamton council member who is on a crusade over a cheap ($5?) sticker people have to buy to put on big items they throw out. Seriously, how cheap does a person have to be to complain about that?

I've never seen a cheaper group of people get so worked up over their taxes going up by a couple of bucks. I live in the south now (which is a bit more conservative than Binghamton) and the people around me understand that a few walking trails paid for with tax dollars actually enhance the life of people around here. Not so in Binghamton, where extending a walking trail is a major source of contention. You people better start investing in some nice things or else nobody will want to live there.

Obviously they have nothing better to do, and no friends or life where they now reside.
Sad.

Joe, after reading my previous post, I realized that if you do live on this street that my post may have freaked you out. My intent was to preserve yours and my anononymity. A friend from my old high school days told me her uncle lives in Vienna and I thought it might be you.

You two are the biggest problem of the area. You have no idea what you are talking about. People like you are the reason the country is in the shape it is. You are no better than anyone else except in your own minds. It must kill you to know that OUR president is black. Suck on that you two POS.

Jack,
No harm done. I would like to talk to you, just to reminisce. I went to Binghamton Central class of 81. Not sure how to connect, without broadcasting my number or email. Any ideas?

Do not broadcast any personal contact info on this forum...EVER! It just might be easier to meet up at the VI some night for a beer. I'm a couple of years younger than you, but its possible our paths have crossed before. Binghamtonn is a small town. Just curious...what elementary school did you go to in Bing?

The post was directed at the two morons who always post about how blacks are the cause of everything bad. They are the problem with the whole country and not just this area. I have no respect for anyone who considers themselves above anyone else.

My work related broadcasts and radio shows have been acknowledged by several TV agents over the years. Today I received a serious offer to present two scripts for possible TV reality shows. 1st Fight Back how to clean up any neighborhood from drug traffic and gangs in 72 hours. 2nd Drug Testing Nightmares based on the book I wrote Drug Testing Exposed. You can listen to any of the broadcasts or radio shows at http://www.rapiddrugtest.com/&#8203;mp3.p...

Maybe I will get a chance to show how easy it really is to clean up Binghamton and Triple Cities. Sure to upset local political and law enforcement agenda's

Hiring more police and letting them do police work is how to clean up Binghamton.

We've already wasted enough tax money under Ryan and Abdelazim and shouldn't waste more on silly gimmicks.

Feel free to chime in when you have a good idea.

Feel free to chime in when you can come up with the money to pay for the extra police, Cank.

Go back to Canada, moron.

Albany had the same problems with gangs selling drugs. Where street gangs are selling drugs, crime is close-by.

Albany didn't hire more cops. They received help from the governor and attorney general.

What would happen to the extra cops if the idiot's solution worked? Lay them all off after they clean up?
