The Six Million Dollar Real-Estate Man

What you should know is today is the last day of the legislative session in Albany.

Today is the day for the last-minute deal-making, when poor people – who cannot afford high-priced lobbyists – usually end up paying the price for special interest deals.

Today is the day when “big ugly” packages of legislation, traded for campaign cash, usually get passed with messages of necessity from the Governor.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, to be specific, two years ago when the Democrats were in control of the New York State Senate and the Black and Hispanic Legislators were getting too much power, things were different.

Once upon a time, I remember how tough the leader of the New York State Assembly Sheldon Silver was fighting for the purity and cleanliness of New York’s elected officials.

With A Committee Like That…

You should know that the Committee to Sell – I mean to Save New York - has invested more than $17 million in selling out - I’m sorry – in saving New York. The Committee has been selling Governor Cuomo’s popularity to the people of New York State to the point where he consistently receives 70% approval ratings.

Caesar’s Wife Should Not Only Be Pure…

You should know that back in time, when the world was run by Roman Emperors, the Emperors could do no wrong. They were supposed to be some kind of celestial beings, to the point that even their feces were supposed to never stink. Even their wives were supposed to be perfect… not only pure, but have an appearance of purity.

Senator Tom Duane's Retirement

You should know that New York State Senator Tom Duane today has announced his decision not to seek re-election.

Even though there are two social issues – gay marriage and abortion – that Tom Duane and I have never agreed on and have very strong and differing points of view on, I have to say that I have mixed feelings about him leaving the Senate.

It Does Not Make Sense

Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to dictate to us how much soda we should drink. With this action Mayor Bloomberg confirmed what I wrote a few weeks ago in one of my “What You Should Know” columns, that some elected officials want to create in New York a Nanny State.

For your information, in case you did not read it before I am including inserts of what I wrote before.

Et Tu, Ruth?

There is a common assumption that politics is dirty, and that politicians cannot be trusted because they are liars, conniving hypocrites, back stabbers, and selfish people, always looking out for themselves, and always double-crossing those who trusted them and those who gave them opportunities and placed them in high positions.

You should know that history teaches us about many cases where people have been double-crossed through treasonous acts committed by those who they have placed their trust in.

Statement by State Senator Rubén Díaz

Bronx, NY - State Senator Rubén Díaz has released the following statement:

“As a conservative Democrat, I am very disappointed with President Barack Obama regarding his announcement today in favor of gay marriage. It is well known that in every state where the people have had the opportunity to vote, including in North Carolina this week, the people have rejected gay marriage. Even though the polls indicate that the majority of Americans favor gay marriage, the reality is clearly very different when the people are given the right to vote on this issue.
