First of all, the title of this article is misleading. Customarily, we think of homeless as those who are down on their luck, suffer from PTSD, battle addiction, etc. Here is another example of governmental kabuki theater. Further into the article we read that they are looking for a facility for 125 families. Since when do the homeless come in "family" units? The other comment states that it's no big deal, and there doesn't seem to be any additional crime in the area, so its okay. First of all it costs us all, for these facilities. Where does the money come from. I am hearing of thid type if scenario more and more frequently throughout NYS. This is nothing more than bringing illegals into this country under the radar and calling them "homeless". No wonder the residents were incensed and showed up in droves, because they know they're getting the old government excrement end of the stick. They are tired of the political agenda being foisted upon them without them knowing or having the opportunity to have any say in the matter. Now, I ask you is that not taxation without representation? 7 days ago
Why would we give $4 billion in our hard earned taxpayer dollars to the Liar-in-Chief? What happened to all the stimuli money Congress gave to him in the past? Where is it now? Why should be honor illegal behavior - and an open invitation to everyone in the world to flood our borders? Where's the rationale? Are you people insane? Our society will collapse under the weight of this. There is all this talk about comprehensive immigration policy reform. What good would comprehensive reform do when you have a president who doesn't abide by any laws? First try abiding by the existing laws and try placing border guards and the Reserve on our southern borders. How about that for a start. But to give this miscreant who we call our president, more money is unacceptable. It will never reach its intended goal. Never! This is an intentional push to forever supply the Democratic party with voters. If you stop to think about this logically, where do these children come from (not talking about the countries) but talking about the families. Would you send your children thousands of miles through dangerous territories, un-chaperoned with not food and water, if you didn't know what was going to happen to them. No, you would not. So, these families knew exactly what was happening, who was bringing their children here, what the outcome would be, etc. If you can't see this for what it is you are a blind man. Don't give this crook another penny. Not one red cent. He is nothing more than a charlatan, a side-show barker in fancy clothes with slick moves, but he's just a petty thief. I also want know why it is incumbent upon the USA to provide everything free for every person in this world. We are constantly being criticized for our capitalist society, yet when anyone wants freebies where do they come? Here! Why aren't Guatemala, Honduras and Salvador's governments held responsible for the welfare of their own people? Why? I've had enough. 3 weeks ago
This is a prime example of what type of people we are breeding in this society. Why is her crime any more heinous than those who believe in partial-birth abortions? This is a symptom of a very sick societal illness. A people who hold no value for life, whether born or unborn, will surely suffer the consequences of it. She will live with this for the rest of her life, but I'm not certain it will impact her very much because if you can murder your own child, in cold blood, then you are nothing more than a human animal....by apologies to the animal kingdom who treat their young infinitely better than humans.3 weeks ago
How very sad this is.....it is no longer what it good for the country, but what is good for the Democratic Party or for one of their own. It's all about unions, brokering deals, lining their own pockets, etc., at the expense of the public. They are a disgrace. Cuomo and DeBlasio are in bed together, and we all know that politics makes for strange bedfellows. Does DeBlasio believe that a one-party system is how this country was designed.....oh, I forgot, he's a Commie so for him this seems normal. Again, I am counting the days before leaving New York. It's such a shame that these politicians can't see past their own greed and power hungry agenda.
Half of the people running for office are up on corruption charges or have been embroiled in shady shenanigans, but in this day and age that seems to be the norm and a badge of honor. 3 weeks ago
Good article. Well reported. Mr. Astorino's mother is also from Corona, Queens, so he said he felt an affinity for Queens as well. We know that Cuomo does not have the support of the dying economic Upstate portion of N.Y. because of his efforts to please his environmental cronies and not allow fracking. Also, his desire to close down Indian Point would raise electric rates about 33%, something our already cash-strapped New Yorkers don't need now. Remember Cuomo was head of H.U.D. - a truly corrupt tentacle of the Federal Government. Need I say more. The fact that Astorino has very little history is a blessing. It is a plus in my opinion, not a negative. I'm sick and tired of career politicians. Now, if we could only get rid of Schumer!!!4 weeks ago
Love this! Just love this! Was at the Queens Village Republican Club meeting to meet Rob Astorino, the next Governor of New York State. One of the speakers who lives in Maspeth got up to tell us about this and I wanted to make sure his story was, in fact, correct before commenting on it. Now we see the same outcry from Murrieta County in California where civilians formed a human fence and stopped the busing of illegals into their county. Protesters shouted "Go Home" "No More Illegals" - people are fed up with this garbage! And I particularly like Mr. Jung's (senatorial challenger) comment regarding the distribution of these homeless people. He asks why aren't they distributed more fairly and not just in minority or ethnic communities? Well, Mr. Jung, the first lesson you have to learn about Liberals and Progressives is the rule they live by: "Do as I say, not as I do." They make all the nice, cushy, feel good laws, and NEVER abide by them. These laws don't apply to them, it only applies to the rest of the peons. The wealthy are only liberal when it doesn't encroach into their neighborhoods. The height of hypocrisy! I think we should drive one of these buses into Nancy Pelosi's compound, or perhaps to Harry Reid's home. Better yet, John Kerry's home. 4 weeks ago
This is not puzzling when you understand the rationale behind all of this. A normal person would look upon the rise in crime as problematic, but we are not dealing with normal minds. We are dealing with the Progressive mindset. Creating chaos is the first step in total takeover. It is the perfect opportunity to confiscate weapons from the public, the perfect environment to mandate stricter laws, curfews, etc. Weaken the enforcers and ultimately the society breakdown. In comes the government and calls from marshal law. Look around you folks, no jobs, food shortages, an increasing lack of controls at our borders, bankrupt cities, the U.N. taking control of water issues, it's happening right under your eyes. 4 weeks ago
Glad I saw this, because when I heard about this nonsense, my first thoughts were....."If this becomes law, every cabbie, every truck driver, every person driving in New York, (including Mayor DiBlasio's personal chauffeur) should comply with this law. They SHOULD drive at 25 MPH. This would make the City grind to a halt, would no doubt create fights and arguments between cab drivers and their fares, between people needing to make deadlines, and the like. I was hoping that the citizens of NYC would abide by this ridiculous law 100 percent. Sometimes it takes an exaggeration to see the folly in something. 1 month ago
You can't continue to legislate behavior and morality although they continue to try. The sad reality is, in life accidents happen, and you can pass all the laws you want but it's not going to change a thing. In our society's need to make life "perfect" we are strangulating ourselves with rules, regulations and laws that in the end do nothing but limit our freedoms. Yes, it is tragic, but DiBlasio's campaign "Vision Zero" is unrealistic and a bit arrogant if you ask me. Who does he think he is? Is he some kind of magic man that's going to make all crime and accidents disappear by passing a law? Ludicrous, if you ask me. This is simply a "feel good" law, nothing else. While every life lost is painful, the fact of the matter is that government can't bring anyone back, not can they prevent another death from happening. This would be based on the supposition that DiBlasio is God because in the end, that's the only entity that can give or take life. But then again, isn't that the agenda here? Our government is longing to be our sole provider. Our financial supporter, our father, mother, babysitter, supplier of food, school breakfasts, lunches, universal Pre-K - they're coming for your children. Beware. 1 month ago
How can anyone have the audacity to hold another entity to standards that they don't even comply with themselves? When I see transparency from the Presidency on down, maybe then I would expect other to act accordingly. You know what they say, "Lead by example." Our government officials, whether Federal, State or Local, all have skeletons in their closets and every facet of our many layers of government are rife with dubious practices as well. So to hold another entity to higher standards other than what they practice is known as hypocrisy. 1 month ago
