WOW!!! Talk about a liberal tax and spend leftist liberal union loving spread the wealth loon and this guy "Mole" fits the bill 1000%."Mole" evens like Bill Johnson and Al Gore,I'll bet that he is in love with Obama and all of his socialist/progressive programs.And we wonder why our country is so messed up,could it be because of people like this? I'll bet he knows every tax "loophole" there is and uses them while he tell the rest of us we should pay more to help the people that won't work.Just saying!!

Yes, I was born in Rochester and my grandfather was a union organizer in the garment district there from the 30's to the 60's. Rochester is a very old timey Dem/labor/socialist city. What always struck me was the hypocrisy of the white Dems and their issues with the blacks there. That is why they and Buffalo and most of Western NY have pretty much one of the worst economies in the East. I might retire back there because housing is so cheap, though, lol.

OBat,I wasn't going to bring race into it,but seeing that you said that the "white dems" and "their" issues with the "blacks" is the reason that the economies are the worst in western NY is the problem is wrong.Most of the dems in Rochester are either black or hispanic,not white.The main reason our economy is so bad is because of all of the "entitlement" programs that the taxpayers are made to pay for.The higher the cost of living goes up the more working people move out of the state.The state goverment seems like it doesn't have a clue as they keep raising taxes on the working people that remain here to make up for the ones that leave and won't cut all of the waste of these programs.It is well past the time to cut back(not out) most of these programs.They are just in place to "buy" votes.BTW: The last time I checked Rochester had a pretty strong rating in the country as far as jobs,housing,ect.I think it rated #20th.I do agree that the democrated party and their "feel good" liberal programs are the biggest blame.(the GOP are almost as bad)It is time that people to stop blaming the white people for everything that they don't like and lose the "race" card.Just saying.

Thanks for the heads up- I haven't been back since 1980, and was more in the Dunkirk/Fredonia area most of my life.

I probably didn't express myself correctly- I agree with all you say. Take care.
