    Speech was a home-run. Outed Republicans on minimum wage, looks horrible when not one of them applauded. Bashed the Right on bringing senseless wars to the American people, caught the Right looking like fools again when he mentioned the right to never be turned down to pre-existing conditions which is a winner and the best part of the whole speech was the tribute and long applause to the great service man who got hit by a road side bomb and talked about his struggles. Like I said previously there is not an economic failure. The Economy is growing by 3% and un-employment is falling. Actually one of the Presidents plusses has been his handling of foreign affairs and getting our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan.
    Best thing Obama has going for him is that the Republican lead congress is around an 8% approval rating much lower than Obamas which looks like for now anyways Hillary takes the Presidency easily.
    The Right has no identity as evidence by the crazy 3 responses to the State of the Union Speech. Rand Paul decided on his own, which no one will listen to for the Tea Party side. Theater of the Absurd!!

    The Mayor thinks you are drinking too much Fox Kool-Aid. Our Country is not a mess, although the political system is and yes mostly the Tea Party and wimpy Republicans are to blame as well as Obama being too liberal. Having said that many Americans are feeling better not just because the stock market is up which effects many peoples retirement accounts but Real Estate wealth has skyrocketed in most parts of the country unless you still live in Sullivan County. The economy is still growing at a 2 t o3% rate. While not exciting still in the right direction and corporate earnings as a whole are good. Attacking Libya is poor excuse for your political views. Actually a very dumb argument. Following that logic if a muslim country strikes any of our interests we should just stand by and take it because we do not want to irritate them because we are scared of further violence. That theory never worked in our History. Also Remember as low as the Presidents approval rating is the Republican lead congress is 3 to 4x worse. Bunch of clowns. By the way it is called the minimum wage.
    Your Mayor thinks they should just kick everyone out and start again but that will not happen. The only thing that is true that you wrote above is that the Elephants can not get their act together with all the in-fighting. So this means 8 years of Hillary, which may not be too bad considering she is not as liberal as Obama. We do need more Centrist candidates throughout the Country.
    And remember we are still the greatest nation on earth even with our shortcomings.

  • The Mayor owns a large parcel of land not too far from the current racetrack and hopes that some type of real casino will go there. Having said that the old Concord land with the Golf Course in the long run would be more suitable. Either way land prices will go up.
    Your Mayor is very happy for those who are long the stock. Remember Ornie the #$%$ once said this stock would reach 42 "Guraranteed". Problem is that he said that over 10 years ago and never came close.
    Markie the Hen once said the same thing. Now he is well known at the local soup kitchens.
    What the Mayor is saying that this is all good news if they can start contraction soon, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves as we need to remember this is still NYNY.
