  1. Let’s face it folks, New York is failing quickly. Keep voting for the liberals and insure that New York will be the home of retirees and welfare recipients. Your vote can hasten the migration southward. We are on a very destructive path and it ought to make anyone who loves New York (as I do) quite sad.

  2. I was disgusted to come out of church yesterday and find Hoffman literature all over the cars as far as I’m concerned they violated a sacred place.
    He doesn’t even live in our district so how could he care for it. I will not vote for Hoffman.

  4. VERY low turn-out at the college this morning. It was nearly 10am and I was only the 3rd voter for the day – that may be a good sign for Hoffman. Then again, we’re talking college students … the morning may not be their top choice.

  5. so who in your organization has the absolute gaul to lump us retirees with welfare people. retirees worked their lives to get what little bit that we get, thats more than i can say for some people who milk the system and are allowed to get away with it. this by no means includes aal the people on welfare, people who have someone living with them, usually a boy friend woh takes food from food stamps that the family gets or uses something that they get from the tax payers, and are not found out about .
