Dems Propose Power Sharing; GOP Balks, Awaits Court Ruling
Do the Democrats really want to cede power to the Republicans? Do the Republicans really want to share it? And what about the people of the Empire State? Just what do they want?
Well, it doesn't take a mindreader to know that New Yorkers everywhere simply want their State Senators -- all 62 of them -- to stop this insanity and get back to work.
With critical issues facing the State, including Nassau County's finances, control over the NYC public schools, gay marriage, and, dare we mention, property tax relief, New Yorkers couldn't care less who leads the Senate. Just get back to work.
Comes to mind that Sprint commercial, "What if firefighters ran the world?"
You know, the firefighters, in full firefighting garb, in a legislative chamber, voting countless measures -- from budgets to clean water -- up or down in a matter of seconds.
Wouldn't it be something if those folks in Albany could stop thinking only of themselves, if but for that same moment, and enact legislation that would benefit us peons back home?
Hey Dean, Pedro? Remember us?
Of course, the reality of it, if firefighters ran the world, we'd never see the end of special taxing districts, and the fights over the keg parties and who's gonna watch what on the 56" HDTV -- in between the junkets to the Bahamas -- would make the goings on in Albany look like child's play.
