How about any political party exercising the will of the majority, the most "sacred" of all special interests? It will happen, just "picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies."

Thanks Bob and Ron for the Mohawk Harvest info and will definitely check it out...love buying local. I agree Bob re exchanging opinions without the drama. I look at the issues, not the politicians involved. And although I will continue to exercise my right to vote, my cynicism continues to increase toward politicians of both parties, on all sides of the political spectrum. They seem to be all bought and paid for by special interest groups. It may be coming down to which of the special interest groups do you most like to get screwed by.

Personally, I liked the '3 strokes off your golf game' remark. Anyhow drugs, if it means anything Laker and I don't agree on everything and that usually results in a conversation, .....not an adversarial head-butting contest but an exchange of opinions without the dramatic vitriol. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy going head to head with rabid close-minded ideologists who wont even bother to consider an opposing opinion AND an open honest debate with equal enthusiasm.

Laker, it's in the old Newberrys store, if you go back that far. It really is a great place for local produce and quality products you can't get in the supermarkets. I stopped patronizing the Carrot Barn in Schoharie when I saw items with 'product of Chile' stickers mixed in with some of their 'locally grown' produce.

Tot....Yup, Obama supports Al Qaeda. He's also a Nazi, and, if you're not careful, he'll take 3 strokes off your golf game.

You didn't say 'please, and with sugar on top'. You don't get it do you usedto, very few of us take you seriously. Now plug your ears and stamp your feet because somebody disagreed with you. Good grief, get over yourself.

Oh no, three of the attackers in Kenya could be Americans. Kenyon authorities called it terrorism but in light of this new information maybe they should look into the workplace violence theory... like Texas or now the DC navy yard shooting...

Remember the "Mission Accomplished" Banner president Bush proudly hailed and was then quickly admonished to have done so? President Obama ran to election victory last fall with claims that al Qaeda was “decimated” and “on the run,” I was wondering if that is the same al Qaeda that the president now wants to support in Syria? Is it the same al Qaeda that just attacked that Kenyon shopping mall attack that killed 68 non-Muslins and wounded 175 more? Where are those people that hopped on the Bush bash express now? Where is the angry anti-war liberals waging their fight against the peace prize winners claim to victory? Ironic isn't it? Might even be progressive hypocrisy!

PS the correct spelling is not "hypocrasy"! Progressive rule #44, your entire post is null and void as we cannot accept this mistake.

You are right Patriot. In fact I heard a prominent area attorney on a capital district radio station newscast who issued an opinion that these parents do not have much of a case.

I'd wager that the ignorant, arrogant parents who say they will sue think that they are "politically connected". Well sir, I'll wager that their perception of being "connected" will get them a major legal slap in the face if they pursue their misguided intent.

I'd like to give a shout-out and large !!CHEERS!! to the Mohawk Harvest Co-op and the Mgr. Chris Curro. Enough cannot be said about the fantastic service and dedication to fulfilling their customers needs every single day. VERY well done. Patronize them often, they deserve it.

Someone from the Leaderherald brain trust needs to explain why Gloversville voters should have showed up to vote for three candidates with exactly the same taxwasting political philosophy. Not a dime of difference between the three. We have the highest tax rate in the entire overtaxed State of Cuomo and yet, none of the candidates seriously mentioned cutting costs and taxes. A subsidized apartment complex comes to the city that will pay NO property taxes ever and when they give us a bone, $10k contribution, all of the elected officials try to use it to feed their little tax wasting projects. Vote in Gloversville? Sure if you watch American Idle. But if you want to make a difference, fahgetaboutit!

JEERS to Republican hypocrasy!

Several of the House Republicans who voted Thursday for a bill that slashed billions of dollars from the food stamp program personally received large farm subsidies for family farms. The bill cutting the food stamp program narrowly passed on a mostly party line 217 to 210 vote.

During the food stamp debate, GOP Rep. Stephen Fincher, who received thousands in farm subsidies, responded to a Democratic Congressman during the debate over the cuts by quoting the bible, saying “the one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

Fincher himself has received his own large share of government money. From 1999 to 2012, Stephen & Lynn Fincher Farms received $3,483,824 in agriculture subsidies. Last year he took in $70,574 alone.

4 kids out of 300 showed up to apologize to Mr. Holloway for the damage that was done. This is beyond sad, it's criminal. Mr. Holloway has exhibited more patience than most of us would have in the same situation and what does he get? Threats of lawsuits from some scumbag parents. On another thread we have been talking about bullying and parenting and how children emulate their home environment and this gives hard evidence of how deep this problem really is. Parents don't give a *hit and neither do their little urchins. Mr. Holloway should sue EACH of the other 296 brats families for the 20k in damages. It probably wont matter to their little fungi but it will hit the parents hard. I visited Holloways site 'savethe300 dot com' yesterday. The tweets alone from these 'children' are enough to make your blood boil, never mind the pictures of the damage. Because of this, I don't ever again want to hear the term 'it's for the children'.

Someone should write an article in the newspaper listing the names of the parents who are suing Holloway.

Cheers to all of those school aged kids who volunteered to help clean up the mess in Rennselaer county that had no involvement with the vandalism incident.
