Hmmm, Making recess appts to the NLRB...hardly a spec on the screen compared to a commander in chief lying to Congress and the American public about invading a country, causing thousands of deaths, causing unrest in the entire region, endangering US troops in Afghan, and almost causing a cataclysmic US economic collapse...

I guess when you are wrong a lot after becoming president it simply continues... A third federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that President Obama violated the Constitution last year when he made recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, adding more weight to the case as it goes before the Supreme Court in the justices’ next session. The Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 2-1 decision, said that the president can only make recess appointments after Congress has adjourned “sine die,” which in modern times has meant when it breaks at the end of each year.

Hey Laker... have you EVER listened to the almighty Obama talk? He is aggression, pure and simply the worst president that we have EVER had! He will not be satisfied until he has us all fighting in the streets... a real divisive man. But you won't see it in your glee someone is taking it to the repubs... all for you!

Well said Bob, and I'd be hoping(beyond hope) that tot could take a hint from your comment. "Making it about race" tot, is equally as bad as you "making it about politics."...but that's your favorite, and ever predictable/boorish reaction. It only serves to spew more hatred. It's a tragedy...leave it at that.

I would like to thank the Leader Herald for recognizing the gentleman living at the YMCA who is doing his part to make the world a better place. He is a reminder to us all, that each one of us can do something.

Do you want to know why this time Trayvon Martin is not just a statistic, not just a forgotten loser that was out for trouble in a GATED community? Because of Obama and his liberal media following! He had to voice his racist remarks and MAKE it about race. Would you feel the same if it was the other way around? If a criminal smashed the brains out of a person that was looking out for you and your property? This kid was out for trouble and because he picked the wrong victim he got instant justice. The former police chief of Sanford, Florida Bill Lee was pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice and was fired for doing his job. There were a lot of things that were wrong in this case... but the death of a criminal just wasn't one of them!

I believe that many of the past 5 years most decisive and controversial news stories have been adversely affected by the presidents quick to speak without information tendencies. I also believe that a president with some class would go before the American people and urge calm and peace in an effort to head off the looming trouble that he has instigated.

JEERS to once again making statements that should have been thought through! but as usual for him... When President Obama proclaimed that those who commit sexual assault in the military should be “prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged,” it had an effect he did not intend: muddying legal cases across the country. In at least a dozen sexual assault cases since the president’s remarks at the White House in May, judges and defense lawyers have said that Mr. Obama’s words as commander in chief amounted to “unlawful command influence,” “Unlawful command influence” refers to actions of commanders that could be interpreted by jurors as an attempt to influence a court-martial, in effect ordering a specific outcome. Mr. Obama, as commander in chief of the armed forces, is considered the most powerful person to wield such influence.

Zimmerman, innocent of all charges. The courts do still work sometimes. Justice has finally prevailed and an innocent man should be allowed to get on with his life.

Ron1960: Tina Winney who is on the Broadalbin town board is the wife of Lance Winney, highway, supt. Drew Thompson apparently is the husband of Sandy Thompson, a highway employee who along with the others have been at odds with the supt.(They live at the same address).

Miss Katelynn Smith is the niece to the owners of Caroga Lake's "A Cook and A Waitress" eatery, and is Miss Fulton County. She's a very beautiful, poised young lady and is competing in the pageant on Staten Island. If she wins, it does look good for Fulton County. Good Luck, Katelynn!

I believe that blight is going to be the new normal with our society taking a turn towards lower income. But look on the bright side... a place our misreps can spend the new wal*mart tax revenues!

On Wednesday, Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council met at SUNY Cobleskill to discuss a program that could be very beneficial to our city. The mayor of our city blew that off to visit a basketball camp run by his friend. He could not get to Cobleskill, but today is in Staten Island attending a beauty pageant. He fills those committee seats with his friends of the moment and this is what happens.........absolutely nothing. Wake up people.

There has been a personality conflict between the supervisor and superintendent of highways since the election 2 years ago. With the petition filings this week, You will see 2 groups align themselves together. First, there is challanger Christopher for supervisor, Council candidates Ruzycky, and incumbent Winney will team up and go up against the team of Incumbent Sup. Diagacomo, Kim Verrago and Drew Thompson. You can be sure that if Diagacomo is re-elected with his "team", the friction with the highway sup. will continue. If the the Christopher team is elected, there is a chance there will be more co-operation. If there is still lack of co-operation, Lance Winney could be voted out in 2 years. Its going to be interesting to say the least.

Their focus should have been on how to clean up the blight immediately, not wasting time on preventing new housing from being built. The issue they were focused on had more to do with "where" that new housing was built, not the new housing itself.

The town of Broadalbin has a problem of a power struggle and in my opinion having the wife of the highway superintendent on the town council is not a good idea. And from what I understand the town supervisor believed that the highway superintendent worked for him and the town board. When in fact the highway superintendent was elected to operate the town highway department and the only involvement the town board and supervisor has to do with the highway is to appropriate the money for the highway department to operate. How ever I believe that the highway superintendent should have done things much different. He should have talked to the town board and supervisor about what he wanted to do and explained to them why he wanted to do it and when he claimed that some of the county roads he was under contract to plow during the winter were a danger to his equipment and employees he should have just called the county highway superintendent.
