What's wrong with Upstate NY?
Posted in the Utica Forum
#1 Jan 6, 2014
After growing up here, living here and in other parts of the country I finally figured out what is wrong with Central NY---- mediocrity.
the quality of something that is not very good : the quality or state of being mediocre.
Incompetence -: lack of the ability to do something well : the quality or state of not being competent
If you hire someone for a job or want something fixed or go to a retail store that is what we experience here.(not everyone but most).
No wonder young people leave as fast as they can.

There simply is nothing more demoralizing than telling someone that's where you were born. It's embarrassing actually.

The Only thing WRONG with Upstate NY is High Taxes, and the cost of National Grid.
Cut ALL taxes in half, and Cut delivery charge by 70%,

If I had any sense in the 70' I also would have left. No jobs, no future. The only way you got a decent paying job then was to have a vowel at the end of your name. It was only those who knew who to go to. Never mind what you knew-it was WHO!
I obtained a temp. job with the city, and every pay day you would see no shows getting a check.

Pat, if only NYS shipped all the blacks out it would save trillions. It's more then the trillions wasted on blacks it's also all the damage done by them in every way that just destroys the system. Now with obama making sure they each get to have thousands in free medical this state is going to collapse. They are the biggest destructive force on America. Every way you turn they cause consequences that bleed the state.
