Senator Liz Krueger Calls For Active Opposition to Venomous Speech Delivered By Ahmadinejad

While we live in a world where the right to free speech is used to spread hate and bigotry towards our brothers and sisters in Israel, we must remember that this same right allows us to protest such venomous attacks. It must be made clear that freedom of speech used to spew anti-American and anti-Semitic rhetoric may be permitted by the law, but it is not tolerated by the people. Ahmadinejad may come to our soil to enjoy and abuse the very rights he does not grant his own people, however that does not mean we will not stand-up and fight against his words.

SI Advance: Lanza seeks to get storm $$ for Island homeowners

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- State Sen. Andrew Lanza has asked Gov. David Paterson to amend the state's request for disaster assistance relief from March storm floods to include aid to homeowners. Last month, President Obama declared six counties in New York state, including Richmond County, eligible to receive assistance under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. But at Paterson's behest, the aid goes to localities to rebuild damaged infrastructure and public facilities, not to individual homeowners or renters.
