i actually think Kate also supports it but is coming out publically against it because she knows that the majority will vote in favor of it and then she can say that she was against the project so everyone should vote for her next year because she was looking out for her community. We all know the truth though

Either way, Yaphank loses. Hey - let's tell them we'll make a trade. We'll take Levy Village if Yaphank will take the sober homes and sex offenders. Isn't it funny how all of the communities Browning represents get stuck with the county's problems????

I believe that big yellow 2 story house(sober house) just south of the LIRR on WFP is up for sale. If it is, it's a start. We all know of the drinking and drugs that are frequent there in the short 2 year history of this new house.

Don't expect the new low income people to actually work. Welfare for the poor - just dump them in Yaphank. Wonder who is cashing in on this???

Global warming is a hoax, ate Browning , and her worship of the earth, is all a power grab. Kate loves the Mastic Shirley area, because she thinks all the residents are ignorant, and therefore easily manipulated and controlled. Hey Kate, the electorate is wising up to you, and all the other self-centered, egotistical power hungry pig politicians. Remember people, politicians work for us, if they are failing us, then don't re-elect them, kick the bums out.
Can't wait for 2010!!!!

Let's face it - if she were not incorrect, regarding the ignorance of the residents, she would not have been re-elected. Now we're stuck with a useless mouthpiece, the mouthpiece of the S.C.P.D., so stop complaining now. You should have been there with me to vote her out.

You don't. Then, when these houses don't, or can't sell, you will see a shift in DSS residents and Section 8 of unprecedented proportions. Housing values will plummet, so everyone better get off their butt and make a village here a reality real soon - or this will adversely affect all of us here by the water irreparably.

Seems as if you are using the fear factor to motivate people to pay you cash to preserve their way of life in this area - and avoid welfare blight. Look around - too late. And stop maligning the poor - it is not true that all people of modest means are degenerate disease laden derelicts. Some are decent God fearing people who have fallen on unfortunate circumstances. The problem is that the skells destroy the neigborhood. And you will not change them - a village will just further protect these pariah. The only way to not live in the cesspool is to move to the north shore, east or west.

A village is our best hope. No one is getting paid here to help push for an incorporated village. Yes not all who receive assistance from the county or state, or those who simply rent are derelicts like you mentioned. That most can agree on. But to follow your words and insist the only way to enjoy a better quality of life is to move away from our waterfront community, would be to give up on ourselves and what this area can really become. I want to stay. Regardless of what you or others think is a solution, I know we can band together and vote for a better quality of living. It's just going to take quite a bit of effort to motivate the community here to do things as a whole rather than looking out for themselves individually.

What causes you to assume, that I voted for Browning? I certainly did not vote for her! I'm a values voter, and my values are consrvative. I don't fall for the feel good talk, of the Liberals, because, I know that behind their "progressive" facade, is another, more ruthless form of self-absorbed, political cretin.

Fear factors are not being used by me - just facts, nothing more.

I never stated, in any post, that people of less fortunate means are disease ridden, degenerates - you made that statement all on your own - don't attribute your perception of what I stated into something it was not intended to be.

The only area that has the most sex offenders in Suffolk County is Coram / this area has over 120 sex offenders here as of right now. One major factor attracts these people here - "AFFORDABLE HOUSING", whether you care to believe it or not.
Why should I, or anyone else who "pays" to live here, leave? The slumlords need to go, along with the DSS they inundate this area with.

I know many people have fallen on hard times, even those with homes, who have paid their taxes religiously, are now seeking help instead of giving. These people truly need the help to survive and ride this recession out. The others, the generational DSS clients, the sex offenders, definitely need to be weeded out.

BTW - FEAR FACTOR TO GET PROPLE TO PAY ME? Get back on your medication buddy.

My post was a general statement, not directed specifically at you. I do not "assume" what your politics are - we don't even know each other.

As I said, if the turnout against her were anywhere near the frustration we've all heard regarding Browning's inaction's, she would not have been re-elected.
