At W.F.P. convention, an endorsement and plenty of anger

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.50 (1 Vote)

One would hope that folks become wise enough to NOT vote purely along party lines therefore perpetuating a failed system. The message should be clear to all New York residents both up and down state that they have a good basis to question individual candidates motives and actions. Pay attention, read, study and above all VOTE. JLCpulse

COLONIE—At 1:15 a.m. in the lobby of the Desmond Hotel, the rage had temporarily gone out of the most ardent members of the Working Families Party.

A man in a turquoise Che Guevara t-shirt sat slouched in a chair, outside a half-empty ballroom where a d.j. spun electronic dance music.

Most of the party’s members had packed themselves in tight at the hotel’s bar. Kids had missed their buses back to New York City and had no place to stay, and nothing to do except drink a few beers.

Near the bar, a young man in a black shirt and shorts stood aimlessly, letting a rubber mask (Andrew Cuomo’s face with a pinocchio nose) dangle from his left hand.

He’d just spent four hours in a chair in a hotel ballroom yelling “Liar!” at the mention of Cuomo’s name.

“I was one of the people who fought against...

We really appreciate the efforts of Jon Campbell to investigate a bit of the proof necessary to expose the dishonesty surrounding the constant POLITICAL delays of  the hydraulic fracturing decision in NY state. Frankly any elementary student given the facts would see the lies in the stalled (failed) approval process, the proof is a different story. The issues surrounding this whole affair do speak to the honesty and integrity of our top state leaders. Just look at the many states across...

Cuomo's Solar Subsidies for the Wealthy?

By Tom Shepstone in  Natural Gas NOW 5/11/2014

Andrew Cuomo is giving $1 billion in solar subsidies to some very wealthy folks and political donors at the cost of Upstate New York. 

Why is Andrew Cuomo spending $1 billion on solar subsidies? New York State is overtaxed to such a degree that few can afford to live there unless they’re already rich or living off the system. Many are voting with their feet to leave. Yet, the the Governor who cannot make a decision on natural gas...

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a hot topic. There has never been a middle ground on the technology; people are either for it or against it.

Was Charles Schumer Too Honest?

However, recent support for fracking, and the natural gas industry itself, might help lead the way towards a full-blown spike in the acquisition and usage of this commodity. Just this week, New York Senator Chuck Schumer (D) appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show and...

By Institute for Energy Research 5/2/2014 

The Marcellus shale formation runs from West Virginia, through Pennsylvania and into New York. In West Virginia and Pennsylvania, natural gas production is booming, but not in New York. The reason for that is nothing to do with geology and everything to do with politics. Since 2008, New York has imposed a moratorium on the hydraulic fracturing necessary for natural gas production from the Marcellus.

The irony in New York State is that its...
