Town of Hempstead Study Concludes: "Moon Made of Cheese..."

The Big Lie: Say it Loud Enough, Tell It Long Enough, And People Will Begin To Believe It To Be The Truth!

The latest release from the Wonderful World of Murray, offering up a "study" -conducted by, guess who? The Town of Hempstead - that concludes that, yesssss, it IS the changes in the Assessment that "fuel skyrocketing taxes." [Read Study Proves Assessment Link To Tax Hike...]

The Community Alliance awaits the results of the Town's other pending studies of interest, which will prove, beyond all doubt, that:

1. Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't acting alone. Saddam Hussein loaded the bullets;
2. Dick Cheney never met Lewis Libby before the indictment. He only heard his name mentioned as the idle gossip of reporters;
3. Watergate never happened. The plumbers were actually fixing a leak;
4. There really were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq -- only they were disguised as informational mailings with Osama Bin Laden's photo on them;
6. There is no link between eating and weight gain; and, yes,
7. The Moon is, indeed, made of cheese!

A recent study, not conducted by the Town of Hempstead, found that 3% of Americans actually believe that the Moon is made of cheese. If folks buy into Kate Murray's most recent missive, then we suspect 95% of these people are residents of the Town of Hempstead!

Kate Murray's talents are obviously wasted as Town Supervisor. Clearly, with her keen appreciation of the cause of property tax hikes, she should be the next Assessor of Taxes.

Good night, and good luck...

  1. Kate Murray told you that she would do "whatever it takes to win this election." At least she kept to her word on something!

  2. town hall insider or should I say democratic mole???

    Kate will remain in office & Greg Petersen will be CE come Tuesday night!

    Watch the debates on Channel 12 lat night anybody???

    Tom Souzzi did I nice job ducking all the questions, his answers were all the same BLAME your problems on the MACHINE politicians and the TOH????

    Nice try Tom the only thing you seem to have accomplished is to let everyone know that you will not run for entire term because your running for governor.

    It would have been more fitting if he had a Harvey Levinson for TOH supervisor banner hanging behind him to help get his point across.

    I always thought that Tom & Harvey didn't get it, but I was wrong they get but they can't sell it, they are good at a few things, letting you know whats wrong with the government, laying the blame on someone else besides themselves and trying to make you afraid of changes!!!

    My vote will be REPUBLICAN - VOTE ROW "A" ALL THE WAY!!!

  3. "Row 'A' All The Way!"

    The road to Hell is indeed paved by the Town of Hempstead Highway Department.

    Those of us who think with our brains, and not with unfounded allegiance to political party, cast our votes not by row or by rote.

    We vote for those whom we believe will best represent our interests, provide for our futures, keep our communities clean, quaint and livable, and do so without bleeding us dry of every penny we earn.

    You cannot say that Kate Murray or Greg Peterson would do that. They haven't. They cannot. They won't!

    Those who strictly vote the party line just to vote the 'row,' demonstrate their blindness to the corruption of one-party government, and pull the rug out from any effort to move us toward good government.

    Like that 6th grader who failed to study for the test and simply checks off "C" as the answer to every question, ncres4change and the other "Row 'A' All The Way" flatliners just don't get it, and do an injustice and a disservice to us all.

    Ignorance may be bliss for some. For the rest of us, it is the bain of a community.

  4. You don't say franklin square Res?

    And what would you tell all the people out here?

    That we should vote for ALL the democrats running for office???

    Did you even watch the debates, listen to the issues being fought about???

    Tom Souzzi showed not only his arrogance and one sided views to the public last night as he usually does but he also did NOTHING but try to pin all of the Counties problems on the TOH!!!!

    He was there to debate the issues with the other 2 gentlemen running against him, not grandstand and avoid the questions posed to him!!!

    How many times did Mr.Souzzi duck the questions and give an off beat answer?

    How many times did the commentator and the panel say " I don't believe you answered the question"???

    It's the same old lame story day in and day out for Tom Souzzi, they should just give him the title of "TEFLON TOM" because nothing is the Counties fault!!

    Sure he turned around the County he had no other choice with what he was given ANY County Executive would have no other choice but to increase the taxes at that time but do not keep on going back to the same old line that the Republicans cannot ever hold the office of County Executive because of what Tom Gulotta did years ago!!!

    We all get what you and the Democratic party are saying, we see it on TV, Radio & the Newspapers but you know what - We may get what you are trying to say but - THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND YOU ARE HAVING A HARD TIME SELLING IT!!!

    I am not merely saying vote row "A" because of the party I am registered as, I am voting row "A" because I am sick and tired of hearing all of this bull that the Democrats keep spewing!!!

    You know what ANSWER THE QUESTIONS because I have neither the time nor the patience to keep this up!!!

    I DARE ANYONE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT WHO IS BACKING EITHER TOM SOUZZI OR HARVEY LEVINSON TO GIVE SOLID PROOF AS TO WHY WE SHOULD VOTE FOR 1) A MAN WHO IS NOT GOING TO STAY THE COURSE FOR THE FULL TERM OF HIS OFFICE & 2) A MAN WHO HAS DONE NOTHING FOR THE COUNTY AS FAR AS FIXING THE ASSESSMENT SYSTEM BESIDES MAKING PLANS FOR INCOME TAXES, & ATTACKING SCHOOL TAXES WHICH HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE JOB HE WAS ELECTED TO!!!!

    IN MY OPINION HARVEY LEVINSON SHOULD BE KICKED TO THE CURB AS COUNTY ASSESSOR BECAUSE HE HAS DONE NOTHING!!!!

    TOM SOUZZI SHOULD NOT EVEN BE RUNNING BECAUSE OF HIS BACKROOM PRIVATE MEETINGS SELLING OUT THE TAXPAYERS OF NASSAU COUNTY!!!

    REPLY TO THAT WITH WHAT BOOO HOOO THE GOP MACHINE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE FOR OVER 100YRS OF CORRUPTION AND POLITICAL PATRONAGE -AND WHAT HAVE THE DEMOCRATS BEEN DOING- SAVING THE TAXPAYERS MONEY - BULLSHIT

  5. You want proof? Here is proof:

    Suozzi
    - Increased County bond ratings from junk status
    - Balanced budget three years running
    - No tax increases three years running
    - Smallest workforce in County history
    - Lowest crime rate in the U.S. with less cops than there were four years ago
    - Park system is finally getting long deserved attention after years of neglect
    - Suozzi voted "Public Official of the Year" by Governing Magazine.

    Just because Suozzi turned around the County doesn't mean that ANYONE could have done it. If that's the case, Gulotta would still be the County executive.

    If Suozzi does decide to run for governor after he wins (which he will), he will be just one in a long line of politicians who have left office to run for another. I don't know why people want to penalize Suozzi for having ambition. I imagine that Suozzi will be strongly discouraged by his party to run against Spitzer in a primary. It comes with some pretty substantial risks (i.e. he gets destroyed by Spitzer).

    As far as "backroom private meetings", I have no clue what you are talking about. If you are referring to the Coliseum, I would hardly say that process has not been done in the backroom. By pushing the issue, Suozzi has forced people to act and get something done. Otherwise, it will be 2050 before anything happens with that eyesore of a property.

    Levinson
    - the assessment system as it stands today works (you keep saying it doesn't but fail to provide any specifics)
    - assessments are now equitable (for the most part) and adhere to existing NY State law

    The income tax proposal is simply an idea to study as a potential to replace the property tax. Harvey has never said anything other than that. Republicans have been particularly untruthful about this aspect of his campaign.

    I am glad Harvey is "attacking" school taxes. They make up the biggest portion of our tax bill and continue to rise year over year with no end in sight. Something needs to be done to address this problem. The Republicans have no ideas here. I dare you to name one feasible solution they have proposed to lower school taxes.

    The income tax and school tax may not have anything to do with the Assessor job but he is RUNNING FOR OFFICE and therefore it is particularly germane.

    Is that enough "proof" for you? I assume not and look forward to your poorly developed rebuttal.

  6. So you believe that the Assessment System is flawless and is working without any problems???

    Harvey Levinson attacking school districts, sanitation districts, any other special taxation district all while he was on the County payroll, instead of maybe fixing the flaws in the system!!!

    What flaws am I talking about how about the $184 Million that is refunded back because of appeals??

    How about the fact remains that the appeal process takes forever, I have appealed my assessment for this year and am still waiting for even a letter saying they are working on it 10 months and still waiting???

    Income tax proposal to study again maybe he should stick to what he was HIRED to do???

    You say this is proof, I don't consider it anything more than the same old political Bull that always comes out during election time!!!

    You dare me to name a feasible solution sure - Just watching the debate last night - Greg Petersen stated that he will sit down with all of the school districts to help improve the tax problem, such as buying supplies for the districts as a whole in order to get volume discounts ??

    Guess Tom whispered that in his ear during the debate??

    He will fight for us at the state level to change the formula for state school aid -

    Greg Petersen will work with the people to help eleviate some of the tax burden, Can you say that Tom Souzzi has or ever will think about the little guy or even belittle himself to actually discuss school taxes with the districts ???

    We can back and forth with this point being Tom Souzzi says he wants to be County Executive but how can he even take on such problems & run for Governor???

    You can't run a County while running your campaign all around NY State???

    Increased County bond ratings from junk status- So does the TOH who cares why does he want to float additional bonds???

    Balanced budget three years running - What no surplus what happened to the surplus???

    No tax increases three years running - Of course not when you raise the budget to what $2.4 Billion your first year??

    Smallest workforce in County history - wheres the numbers thats bull, look at the Commissioners and Assistant Commissioners he hired what is their salaries again??

    Lowest crime rate in the U.S. with less cops than there were four years ago - Really ooh thats right Forbes Magazine & the FBI both said so - I am sick of hearing him say that on TV!!

    And what is the County PD up to in over time this year - Hmmm that's right $51 Million so far tells me that the Police Officers are overworked and need additional manpower but thats right it's a conspiracy against Tom Souzzi that they are all out to get him from the Unions down to the Patrolman??

    Park system is finally getting long deserved attention after years of neglect - Really WOW and it only took 4 years to clean up the Parks HUH???

    Well I guess after they finally got individuals to actually show up and do some work in order to get paid, not like those scandals who were making what again ???

    OOH thats right seasonal employees making $75/hour and they didn't even show up yet they got paid???

    Suozzi voted "Public Official of the Year" by Governing Magazine for what Mayor of Glen Cove, NC Executive or maybe it's because they heard he's running for Governor???

    Anything more bring it on, but come back with some solid items about Harvey Levinson you did good with Tom's attempts so why can't there be any accomplishment listings for Harvey???

    Guess it's hard to type -N-O-T-H-I-N-G !!!!
