Remember those Elliott Spitzer post cards we used to have? Or buy some new post cards for your respective state. Finally a perfect use for them!
Ol' Skinhead Steve Bannon is not fit to be appointed to the office of delouser at a rabid bear clinic, time to use our most shameful state post cards for the greater good!

Well this is rich... Yet another grifter. At least he has the dignity to drop out and stay out when he knew he was in over his head. Get the money and 15 minutes of fame and dash.

I'm a long time resident of Center Square and work 2nd and 3rd shift at Albany Med. I patronize Center Square businesses daily. I spend a lot of money HERE. If Mayor Sheehan doesn't want my tax money, I'm OK with that. I'll move to another city. I will stop working at AMC taking care of the police, fire fighters and citizens of this city and move to some other welcoming location.
Every time Albany begins to resemble a real city, we regress to a suburban sleeper town. Mayor, have you ever spent time in Boston? How about London? Any other major city with an early curfew for businesses? You get binge drinking. You street fighting. You get underground speak easy style drinking clubs and drug use. We get this now, on a smaller scale in Albany (anybody remember The Willow?)
Unless you are willing to have the Willow as an every day occurrence, I'd not push for this legislation. The tax revenue and the loss of jobs will cause many people I know and love to leave. I will be right behind them.
Mayor, between this and the Trump election, I don't have a lot of reasons keeping me here, err on the right side of history and continue to allow us to enjoy OUR city. If this becomes a city where I can not get a beer and a meal after work, I will leave. I am sure you don't want to have another Brain Drain on your hands, Intermagnetics remember that one?
In closing, please reconsider the people who live and work in the neighborhood. If I can't get a meal and a drink with my friends, then I will be leaving. Or I can just walk to another part of town that doesn't have any of these amenities and buy some cocaine or heroin... People are going to enjoy themselves, legally or illegally. Choose whether you want a few folks enjoying themselves in a supposed controlled environment or do you want to have chaos?

The MAGA hat has become the new swastika... Just not in the US.

To quote Tom Waits, "A rat always knows when he's in with weasels..." Drumpf has to realize by now that he's way out of his league and the Republicans are going to unceremoniously dump his ass. My grandfather was a chef and owned a restaurant, one of his first lessons in the kitchen was "A falling knife has no handle." Drumpf is a falling knife. His own people used him and are going to spit him out like a well-done, grisly piece of Drumpf Steak. My guess is one of his myriad sexual assault cases is actually going to stick.

It hardly redeems our collective guilt for allowing a clown like him to even get close to this position, but it's a start. At least President Pence has some experience... Not good experience, that guy is the devil incarnate, but it's a baby step forward.

Thank you, Veterans. I'm so sorry you're going to have to salute an orange pile of Cheetos instead of a proper gentleman like President Obama in the near future

#NOTMYPRESIDENT.
