That's because we are too gullible, too quick to jump to conclusions, and refuse to slow down and think about whats going on.

Many slicksters know that we are nuerotic workaholics (sorry) and they can slide any lie past us.

I've seen this time and again.

All they have to do is look at their watches or mention all the work that has to be done, and they know they are rid of our attention, and we are out of the way.

Population-wise, the Capital trio of Albany-Troy-Schenectady wins the award for the worst crime/scum hole place in NY state, not the Big Apple.

All NYS representatives are a joke. Look at the circus they caused last summer. We (meaning ALL NY'ers) must remember this and vote them out as fast as we can. I they get voted back in then there is no one to blame except for us.

Tell your friends to stop imitating marine mammals.

I realize they find it easier that doing a convincing imitation of an employed human but they've gotta try.

I know this is going to get me in trouble, BUT New York State, especially Long Island could make TONS of money and keep TONS of jobs by LEGALIZING either POKER and/or Casinos. Everyday Connecticut and New Jersey benefit from THOUSANDS of Long Islanders/New Yorkers who to to AC and the CT casinos. This is EVERY DAY. There are so many Illegal poker rooms on Long Island, NYC, the 5 boroughs that the STUPID state could be collecting TAX money AND, BEST OF ALL....KEEP JOBS IN New York. GOD knows New York NEEDS the JOBS AND MONEY
