And what has Bono and the republican legislators done for the area in the last 20 year that hey have been in control. Bring other high paying jobs? answer NO. this is what happens when you elect local idiots that put all their eggs in one (remington Arms) basket. If anyone had read any of the articles about remington arms in gun magazines they would have seen this coming. A company does not build new plants with no intent on using them. This is a company looking at it's bottom line. You can thank guys like rusty brown for this. They told you to elect Bono and the rest of the clowns.
What has Democratic "Rosanne Barr" Destito done fro this area? How about Brindisi? Or the undertaker Roefaro? It's both local parties....

QUIT crying and blaming. Just get some ideas to persuade Remington to stay. TENNEY is a good choice after all.. LOTS of good votes are going with the Remington move. GOOD paying jobs in turn for a McDonald Hamburg flippers. Now more than ever they need the local paper to smooth things out with the disgusted public. The paper can make the blamek to the GOV and save the butts of the do nothing local republican officials never have a solution but are quick to blame and save their asses.OD they need you now. Keep the headlines and articles inaccurate and persuavive
Do you really think Tenney would. Do anything for us? She is as useless as tits on a bull!
Hanna at least is a leader!

Maybe the politicians can contact the porn industry and bring in expertise for beastility As for the Utica area, even if they do bring in that nano plant, it will never make up for all the jobs lost in that area. Utica might as well change its name to Cornhill or Cornholio. It such a shame and so disgusting, why do we have politicians. The roads are filled with pot holes, infrastructure needs to be updated, City,County, School employees pensions are swelling, not enough consolidation of city, town, county services, no major business moving into the area(I don't count Stewarts and comets), taxes increasing, etc..... How the hell are we, that's right we... going to pay for everything. Every time I listen to a radio show or local news, they are talking about all this positive news. Can someone give me a list of +'s. I sure can give a list of negative's. One of the memo's above talks about trailers and hick's. That memo is correct. At one time the south was filled with trailers, hicks, IQ's of 50 and lower, and they moved so slow that a turtle would be them out. Guess what, who are the idiots now. We are!!! That's right...Weeeeee(squealing like a pig). The South is were industry and people( with high IQ's) are moving to. I am just as part of this as you all are.
Well said about the south and the hick thing.

I wish you were the editor of the OD. Or at least a member of the local press who is not afraid to say it like it is. How bout running for office?
Strange, because I have a friend that loves "alternative press" but then he loves the Phoenix... which tries to present itself as the alternative to the OD, but it prints the same exact fake-positive lies about Quad-C.

If you jokers would just save ourselves the agony and just move you would all be much happier. It isn't like this outside CNY.... at least not as obvious and bad. Do yourselves and the people you love a favor and get out of cny ASAP. Waiting around for the corruption and phony public sevie to work itself out, waiting for nano pipe dreams, waiting to see who will be the next phony governor in the worst most taxed state. Hey I am a sucker for an underdog too but do you have the rest of your lives to wait for those people to decide you are worthy of some bs crony job that won't materialize unless your name is Palmieri, Brindisi, Destito etc? What the fk is wrong with you people you won't see it for just what it is? You've been ripped off by the state of new york. They don't care about Remington watch how fast they ignore it or downplay it.

To all the losers who said this wouldn't happen, convinced yourselves $10million spent in that old steam powered plant was a sign of stability... a lesson learned.

People have been telling you this was all coming for years.

You vote liberal dems your area's corruption is infested with liberal dem corruption seriously what the fck are you talking about? Also Cuomo pissed off Remington and I'm sure the corruption and "highest tax status" didn't hurt lol!

NY maybe Democratic. Upstate however has always been a Republican stonghold(The only area where Democrats rule is Onadaga County/Syracuse. So lets stop the "It's all the fault of those liberals!", because it's not the people this area is voting for.

All the political blame in the world will not keep these jobs here in CNY. The bottom line is in Alabama there are no regulations (corporations can have the unsafest environments for their workers and no one cares) and the pay is at least half of what it is in Ilion, NY. Are we willing to give up our safety and standard of living for corporate greed? Political parties do not make a difference -Herkimer County is mainly run by Republicans and we have one of the lowest median incomes in the state!

Corporate America doesn't give a shit about you, me or anyone else. Safety? Ha! They'll poison an employee in a second if they can get away with it. Look what GE did to the Hudson! These hicks in Alabammy think RA is doing them a favor with shit wages. RA will shit on their lap & those asshats will say thank ya, pass the t.p. That's why their moving! Shit wages, no union to assist an employee when the big man wants to screw you over, & probably no bennies. The fast cats? They'll live high on the hog and ol jimbob will scratch his ass for a decent wage. And you idiots will bitch about a working person up here in a union who makes a decent living. Yes! It's the unions fault! Why, they make too much! They get a pension! Greedy!

Yes, screw me over Mr. Aristocrat! I don't mind! Can I get that nickel raise you promised? I promise, I'll work harder!

Well said! 10 yrs. from now. When the middle class is all but gone. People will wonder how U.S. citizens could wage war on their own middle class. Frightening to say the least!
