I will not and do not want this thread to become one filled with hatred. I will not hold it against the Mods if they shut it down for that reason... I absolutely cannot believe whats going on in NY State. In face of all time high deficits, our Black,Blind and dumb Governor decided to pass this legislation. Mind you we are broke to the point where they were talking about taxing even water! When you look at the Demographics of this legislation, you could plainly see where this money is going and I'm outraged at lack of accountability for it's spending by the individuals recieving it! Is this going on near you also? http://www.wgrz.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=69383&catid=37 It seems as tho, "redistribution" of wealth is in fact color blind because they must consider white's and black's that work a shade. While there are some Black leaders who feel that what's going on is nonsense. The overwhelming majority of black elected officials are for these laws, (maybe they don't know what it's like to work)? My message and point to this are, If you work in NY and have a black co-worker next to you. Put all prejudice aside (if there is any), and explain to that person how bad we're getting f u c k e d by the one's sitting home. Remind that person of the tax increases that where hotbed of debate (sponsored by our Governor). This is one more way our government is trying to stir racial smokescreens while officials line their pockets. That person your working next too (of different race) will be more prone in the long run to put themselves in your shoe's. It's plain to see whats going on here and with discussion of the matter, you might gain a trusted friend.
