Congratulations to the Catskill Mt. Railroad on the resounding success this past weekend of attracting over 4000 riders to their Thomas the Train ride at the Kingston Plaza railroad tracks. Kingston has finally found a high power, visible Tourist attraction that will continue to draw new people and new money to Kingston and Ulster County, year-round. Let's urge Mayor Gallo and County Executive Hein and the Ulster County Legislature to get On-board the tremendous Tourism Attraction.

I respectfully disagree with the Kingston Land Trust. My top priority is to keep the railroad operating as it does now from the Kingston Plaza to the the Hurley Corn fields. I urge residents that agree with me to call their county legislators to tell them to Leave the Kingston Plaza railroad in operation. Tell them to vote NO next Tuesday, August 19, 2014 on Lynn. Archer's Ulster Legislature Resolution 275 which wants to rip up the Kingston Plaza railroad for a hiking, biking trail. Vote NO on 275 which will allow our children, disabled, seniors, parents and tourists to enjoy the short train ride from the Kingston Plaza to the Hurley Flats.
Remember the old Broadway Kingston Post Office that was torn down for a Jack in the Box.
Let's not make another foolish mistake with the Kingston Plaza Train Ride.

Vote NO on the $138 Million KHS Bond vote IF you want new companies to locate here. Haven't you noticed that there is little or no private construction in Kingston. City officials cannot get any developer to build a condo/parking garage in Uptown Kingston. Do you think that is because of the high school condition. No, it is because Kingston's business taxes are way TOO HIGH. If you approve the KHS project, the Kingston TAX situation gets worse, much worse.

Let's review the tortuous logic that American citizens have had to swallow to pass and accept the Obamacare law. The Senate had to selectively bribe senators to vote for the law. The House had to promise an obscure representative that abortion would not be funded by the law, only to have betrayed this promise in the actual law by requiring the funding of abortion and other religiously offensive mandates in the law. The House and Senate passed the law emphasizing that there would be no direct "taxation" involved in the law, but only "penalty" charges for not signing up for obamacare. After the law passed with all these bribes and lies told, the Supreme Court declared the premise for Obama's defense of the law was unconstitutional. The Court said that mandating Americans to buy anything such as health insurance punishable by a "penalty" is unconstitutional under the Constitution's commerce clause. However, Chief Justice John Roberts and 4 left leaning judges rewrote the affordable care act by saying if the law's "penalty" was called a "tax", the law would be constitutional, since Congress has the power to tax. So the Congress and the American people rejected the original premise of an obamacare tax, but now the Supreme Court gave the American people a backhand slap in the face, by calling the obamacare mandate "penalty" a "tax". So the American people are stuck with a "tax" they originally rejected when the law was originally debated in Congress. So I dispute the claim that American citizens have a weak argument to protest obamacare. Since the above demonstrates that the American people were duped, there is a compelling case for fighting obamacare tooth and nail. To add insult to injury, guess who is administering and monitoring citizen compliance to obamacare......the IRS, which has been accused of spying on and harrassing American citizens before the last election. I think there is overwhelming evidence to at least delay this law one year to allow American citizens a chance to debate and revisit the deceit and lies that occurred in the passage of this law.
