Statement by Speaker Christine C. Quinn
Re: Madison Square Garden

$11 million dollars may not sound like a lot of money to Jim Dolan, but to most New Yorkers it's a fortune. If he expects the City of New York to extend what is almost a million dollar a month tax break in perpetuity, he's sadly mistaken. New Yorkers pay the highest taxes in the country, and they need to know that their tax dollars are being spent wisely.

FOX NEWS JOINS THE RANKS OF THE NEW YORK TRAITOR TIMES.

FOX NEWS JOINS THE RANKS OF THE NEW YORK TRAITOR TIMES.

The banning of Ron Paul tonight by Fox News is the beginning of the end for FOX NEWS.

They now have joined the likes of the New York Traitor Times.

But the real losers were the 5 Republicans who should have walk off the show.

Ronald Regain would have.



The Federal Budget: Changing Priorities by Administration

Those who have read my posts over the past two years know that state and local policy and regional economic trends, not national policy and macro economic trends, are my main areas of concern and expertise. In particular, right now I am more afraid of the next state budget than unstable, nuclear armed Pakistan. Since part one of the Presidential campaign begins and ends this month, however (with part two not beginning until September) I’ve decided to analyze and write a series of posts on the federal budget. One task in doing so is to try to standardize the measure of federal revenues and expenditures to disentangle the decisions made by each administration from the external conditions that had nothing to do with those decisions. This means adjusting the figures for inflation, and for the resources available in the country, something I do at the state and local level by tabulating state and local revenues, expenditures and debt as a percent of personal income, the best measure available for counties and up, and will do at the national level by tabulating revenues, expenditures and debt per $100,000 of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

    PUTTING THE NAILS INTO THE HILLARY SOPRANO CAMPAIGN

    PUTTING THE NAILS INTO HILLARY SOPRANO CAMPAIGN

    Day by day, event by event, word by word, Bill is putting the nails into the campaign of HILLARY SOPRANO.

    Make no mistake, Bill wants OBAMA to WIN, he has always wanted OBAMA to win.

    As we have said over and over again.

    IN THE END THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE WHO WAS PRESIDENT NOT TWO.

    ITS BILL STUPID, NOT HILLARY SOPRANO

    PS. What are you going to do Rudy when you finish behind Ron Paul again, as the song goes ITS ALL OVER NOW

    PPS MAYBE ITS TIME FOR THE SUNDAY NEWS SHOWS TO CHANGE THE TALKING HEADS.

    NOW THAT WOULD BE REAL CHANGE.

    CHANGE VS FUTURE

    CHANGE VS FUTURE

    Change is going from a Red Tie to a Blue Tie, a White Shirt to a Blue Shirt. Black Shoes to Blue Shoes, that is change.

    Obama is changing the face of the Democratic Party from Hillary Soprano to "Blue Tie Obama".

    Will "Blue Tie Obama" lead the Democrats to victory in November ?

    Only time will tell, all the Republicans that are now running represent the "RED TIE" status quo.

    This election is now about "Blue Tie Obama" vs "The Red Tie Republicans".

    But it should be about the "FUTURE" not about changing "COLORS"

    The future is about MARS, yes MARS AND THAT BRAVE NEW WORLD THAT IS COMING.

    Here We Go Again: Barack Obama Will Win the New Hampshire Primary

    I am convinced that many in media just don’t get it; just like many of our elected officials in this country. They wouldn’t recognize a meteorite even if it was hurling straight toward them at one mile per day. They see what they want to see only, and they don’t think deeply. Their visions are usually clouded by their special interests, corporate owners, myopia, greed and/or ego-needs.

    Last winter, I told the world that the only thing stopping Barack Hussein (Barry) Obama from being the next president of the USA, is an assassination; either a political or physical one. I also said that if he was fully white (and not just half-white), this race would be a wrap. This bad boy is special with a capital “s”.
