Use134 - It's Cuomo who is the "weasel". He's arrogant and will not openly engage in any public debates with his opponents. By openly, I mean he controlled the questions that would be allowed asked of him. He's a criminal through and through, and also a racist. View Comment
Sparky, you moved into a hell hole. Apparently you didn't do your due diligence researching the tremendous downside to living in Mount Vernon. The slogan on the signs welcoming people into the city will be changed to "Welcome to the City on the Slide Down". View Comment
I'd like to see the closings of the couple hundred "fake" churches in Mount Vernon. East Third Street is littered with those storefront "churches". They pay no taxes and cannot possibly have any sizable congregations. I suspect most of them are "fronts" for illegitimate businesses. View Comment
There is no surplus. I suspect there is a huge deficit and it will continue to grow. As long as Ernie Davis is Mayor, there will always be massive tax increases and millions will continue to be unaccountable. View Comment
The Dems have proven themselves to be criminals - Cuomo is the top criminal and condones all criminal activity committed by his fellow Dems. The Republicans are no better, but to say "we need to let the Dems have a shot at the Senate" is condoning their crimes aganist the people. View Comment
The majority of the people in New York don't want a change from the 1-party rule. The Wall Street crowd (banks and corporations) control everything, not just in NY but up to and including the Federal government. View Comment
Hillary is actually campaigning for herself, pre-2016. She's testing the waters, and while she intends to run for President in 2016, she wants to see what happens in the midterms this year. View Comment
There was no surplus from Clinton. The Democrats used monies from the SS Trust Fund to falsify everything.
As for Bush lying about the WMDs in Iraq, the UN Inspectors verified there were such WMDs in Iraq but they'd been well-hidden.
I hope the Republicans take the Senate under their control. I'll sit back and enjoy the games. View Comment
I am very supportive of a rise in the minimum wage, at least $18 an hour. But there has to be a trade off - higher minimum wages, less welfare. Actually the elimination of welfare would be warranted by a higher, livable minimum wage. View Comment
DavidReich, sure, the FNA is concerned about the perceived beauty of Fleetwood, so let them plant flowers, but it still does not negate the filthy streets, broken sidewalks, potholed roads, structurally unsafe parking garage, and so many other things.
The "welcome" signs (which you say are at the exits at Broad Street and Columbus Avenue) should actually warn people entering the city of the horrible conditions existing here.
I'd like to see the FNA muster up the courage to go to City Hall and make demands of the Mayor. But then, he'll only politely listen and then give them his usual lip service - resulting in nothing being done.
And if you can jog your memory, you'll recall that the dereliction of Fleetwood (as well as all of Mount Vernon) has occurred only since the first day of the first term of Mayor Davis. View Comment
Lollie, you are the Josef Goebbels for the Obama Administration. You have been brainwashed by the lies of Obama, Pelosi, and the other oppressors of the people. Keep on doing your great job of spreading the Obamaganda - maybe he'll award you a Medal of Dishonor. View Comment
That's right, plant some flowers in the boxes, that will vastly improve the "beauty" of the neighborhood. NOT! I suggest you concentrate on the filthy streets, littered with trash by the slobs who walk through the area, or drive through and toss trash out of their car windows. View Comment
