February 18, 2013

For the second time in as many months, the state Adirondack Park Agency postponed action on a controversial proposal that would streamline the review process for certain kinds of clear-cutting on......

The gun law banning weapons I believe is unconstitutional, they have however now turned their focus on the monetary aspects of gun ownership. This may be the way that they can get the control that they want but skirt the 2nd amendment altogether. By raising the costs to buy guns and ammo and making you jump through bureaucratic hoops they believe that they will make gun ownership unfavorable to us, costs and hassles are nothing new for our governments gifts to us but a new wrinkle in the gun issue.

Concerning the gun law, if the legislators didn't have enough time to understand it, why the h___ did they vote for it. The same thing happened with Obama care ("vote for it, then you"ll find out whats in it"). I'm convinced, all lawyers are stupid. That's why I think that Lawyers should be barred from holding government office.

scarecrow, The taxes are your rent. If you don't pay them the state WILL sell it to someone else.

If you think you own your land, try not paying your taxes.

I know that many don't like the APA, but I just bought ten acres inside the blue line, and my dealings with them have been nothing but pleasant and professional.

adkkev - If my neighbors are concerned perhaps they should buy my land and pay the taxes.

And Disco, If I don't own the land then why do I pay taxes on it?

SO screw all the landowners that had property before the state park was created? It's more a case of protecting the downstaters and out of staters than helping the people that actually live here.. The APA and the Black River folks are terrible, thank god my new place is out outside the APA..

Clear cutting is nothing new in the Adirondack Park. There are very good reasons for it to keep the natural order. In the past wild fire cleared brush and renewed to forest fro new growth. It's about conserving the natural habitats. Not everything is about destroying the forest. Most of the time it's not for building purposes. The land owners knew the rules when they entered the Adirondack park or they should have done the research. This coming from some one who lives in the blue line.

I'm referring to Agenda 21, nothing else. Before you go on a tirade please read all about it at the United Nations own web site. Locate New York State and marvel at the wool thats, so far, been pulled over your eyes. This is no progressive or conservative reading assignment. Don't take my word for it, go see yourself, then tell me if your understanding of 'sustainable' is the same as's not about trees.

Hey MrBob, do ya even know what sustainable forestry is? And SC57, what about your neighbors and others who might be negatively affected by your clear-cutting? Too bad for them right?

Any program with the word 'sustainable' in it is more Agenda 21 garbage and is to be avoided at all costs.

It is good to see that no one will let the governor rest after championing his gun control bill through. I continue to hear how many NYers support this new law... I wonder why nobody asked me or the millions of other NYers that do NOT support this bill. Can you tell me how registering the good guys guns helps prevent any violence at all? Can you tell me what good it does to get the GOOD guys name on a list someplace? Go ahead and pass insane bills and when you do... expect some friction from us until you do not!

Skrocki - The draconian gun control legislation was rushed through and is such a horrible piece of garbage that it just sets itself up for abuse.

My question to all of the Gun Control freaks out there. What is it that I have done, that I cannot have an AR-15 and a 50 round magazine? Why should I be punished for the actions of a few?

Not for nothing, if it is PRIVATE land, the state should have no say in the matter. If I desire to cut all the trees on my property that is my business and no one elses. In fact, if they are going tot tell me what to do with my land then they should PAY the TAXES on it.

So the clear-cutting article was just a front to once again thrash our Democratic Governor for implementing gun control measures. Please remember he does not act alone. The state legilature, who we elected to represent us, enacted the controls while the Governor Cuomo signed it.
