    Governor cuomo proposed using his budget surplus to fund a $154 Billion dollars spending plan that includes $2.1 billion increase in school funding, and the legacy building construction projects.  But what about those who are hungry and unemployed? He states that he has kept state spending under a 2 percent cap, which allows him now go wild. He is cashing in on $9.3 billion in Federal aid and much $$$ Sandy revenue. He stated he would authorize mixed martial arts matches in the state as a tax revenue producer. He underscored his announcement proposing billions in overhauling Penn Station, A third rail for the long Island Railroad and a possible tunnel from Long Island to Westchester, the Bronx, or Connecticut, a billion on Jacob Javits changes, and still no word on increased tolls on the Tappanzee Bridge.  I guess he wants to be another Trump.  Tune in a hear all about it on blogtalkradio.com /don-durant

    How many time can we allow a comparison of armed takeover of government property and no responsive action from the government and we watch as the Terrorists are emboldened by their ability to get away with these criminal acts. Young Black men are shot down in cold blood by authority figures and no action is taken.

    Your family is in danger of displacement.  Redeveliopment is designed to move you out and someone else in. Gentrification they call it when your community is changed based on the wealthy taking over and moving you out.  Rockaway Beach, NY is an example of this happening and families were broken and torn apart.  Downtown Brooklyn, is likewise a great example of raising rents beyond the ability of the established communiity to pay. Brownstones buildings moving from $200,000 to buy and increased to one million dollars...

    Trump is by no means going to miss this opportunity to shine in the waning moments before the Iowa Caucus.  The GOP field is very weak, and two have already offered up to two million dollars to debate Trump. Cruz has callenged Trump to a debate with him and no moderators at all.  Where is all of this leading what has happened to our political system?  In a previous debate, Trump and others criticized the Moderators and wanted them removed offering up their own rules annd etiquette for debates they would appear in.

    Republican Presidential candidates Trump, Rubio, and Cruz, were among those criss crossing the state ahead of teh Iowa Caucus, and even jumping for brief stops in Nashua New Hampshire.  Hillary and Bernie are fighting silent fights with one another and  Professor Cornel West, is pushin Bernie at many campaign stops.  Professor West is as bad a campaigner as Dr. Ben, and he fought hard against President Obama for eight years.

    The transfer of properties, which are 18 Parking Lots given away FREE to developers. The mayor calls this transferring these properties.  This is all part of a Master Developer Agreement signed with Village Officials, just as is being done across the country.  Trump is an example of what the major developers have in mind, and the developers paid nothing, the Village Community Development Agency, made up of the Trustees and the Mayor will receive $8 million dollars tax free to their coffers. What is going on here?  Why is there no community input and who will finally reap the benefits of this $8 million?  The people of the community are like sacrificial lambs.

    The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was in Memphis in support of benefits for the Sanitation workers. Mysteriously a bogus group attempted to infiltrate his efforts and  came up with approaches and ideas contrary to the methods used by the SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Council).  Their efforts were rebuffed, but on the day of the planned march they interceded and created a riot where a young black boy was killed.  The handlers of Dr. King rushed him to a vehicle and out of the way of danger.  A Planned sit-in across from the Capital had been planned for months and  was scheduled days after the Memphis March.   So much negative press went out from the head of the FBI, and members of Congress, calling Dr. King a coward for starting a  riot and then running away.  This forced him to change his plans and head back to Memphis to finish the work he had begun.

    There was a mountain to climb after Blacks were freed fromn slavery.  The Industrial revolution was another turning point and blacks were able to secure meager jobs to provide for growing families.  The struggle went on and sitins and protests, Jailings and dogs, along with high powered water hoses, changes were beginning to take place that could be seen and measured.  Affirmative Action were not enough to change socty to become accepting of these citizens who were so different.  And now in 2016, we are facing the same but different!!!
