I was reading the Amsterdam News yesterday, and I came across Armstrong Williams' piece, The Harmful Consequences of Raising the Minimum Wage:
I was alerted to a new article in the Old Grey Lady regarding John Giuca.
Even though I had what was a link to the article, I could not easily navigate to the piece.
Performing a Google search was interesting - I had to type out the entirety of Mark Fisher's name...and when I did, I was also given the option of looking up "Marc Fisher".
Why would this article be such a chore to locate?
Let's begin today with a piece penned by Paul Craig Roberts, titled Ignored Reality Is Going To Wipe Out the Human Race:
This is the real tale of two cities.
The title is essentially Charles "Joe" Hynes' campaign message.
Sounds outrageous, yes?
Explain this, then:
I don't play favorites.
Let it be known that Vincent Nunes is no hypocrite.
I've called out outgoing NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg on his ill-advised soda ban, and I would be remiss in not reporting that Democratic nominee Bill de Blasio is planning to take up said soda ban.
C'mon, Bill - don't ride on this vote-loser.
Two stories came up in my daily searches, both from Failed Messiah. The first:
Happy Friday, dear readers!
Are you allowed to attack someone who hasn't yet posed a threat to you?
These guys seem to think so:
Remember, remember, the fifth of November...don't allow Hynes to be a contender.
Apologies for butchering that little rhyme.
What else happened on that day in time?
FrankenFoods/GMOs will NEVER be equivalent to conventionally/organically-produced crops.
I can state that as a certainty.
The "science" of GMOs dictates that their crops can never be equivalent to non-GMO crops.
"I'll give up the position of Kings County District Attorney when you pry (or take) it from my cold, dead hands."
Yeah...it's kind of looking that way, isn't it?
I was very pleased with the outcome last month in the primary when I woke up later that evening. However, one saying kept creeping around in my mind:
I wrote in my last piece regarding the primaries; how I woke up after 11:00 PM to find out that Ken Thompson had beaten incumbent Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes, among other triumphs.
It was a great day.
I thought to myself, in anticipation of the changes, that a number of people would see in their lives; notably, John Giuca and his mother, Doreen Giuliano, John Kennedy O'Hara, Jabbar Collins, David Ranta, Jeffrey Deskovic, Derrick Hamilton and Samuel Kellner, to name just a few.
I wish to first offer my congratulations to the winners - Letitia James, Laurie Cumbo, Scott Stringer, and especially to Bill de Blasio and Ken Thompson.
What a fantastic thing to wake up to at 11:00 PM!
Happy Friday, dear readers!
Bill de Blasio is standing tall in the polls, with a scant number of days left until the primary.
Let's look for the newspapers that endorsed Christine Quinn to make an attempt at derailing his campaign.
Let's be ready to fight back.
Similarly - what dirty tricks will Breezy Point Joe pull out to steal the office of the District Attorney of Kings County away from Ken Thompson?
Once again, let's be ready.
Labor Day Weekend is upon us. I hope that everyone has something fun awaiting them.
Happy Hump Day, dear readers!
Wednesday morning on the subway, I catch a headline in the New York Post that I can't help but to look up. It's titled, "Chicago warns NY: Expect slay spree over frisk nix as Windy City suffered highest 2012 murder rate in the country amid no stop-frisk policy"
Last Thursday, I was saddened to discover that Abe George was no longer running for the office of Brooklyn District Attorney. I heard the news just as it was being announced over the airwaves that evening. That sadness, however, was mitigated by the idea that now we are going to bear witness to quite the event: Hynes vs. Thompson, with Abe George in Thompson's corner.
