Celebrate Diversity!

I've been hearing a lot of talk at some of the places where I do business about celebrating diversity. We should all be happy that someone else is black or Mexican or whatever because it makes our lives a better place. That's all fine with me to a point, I am not against people being born black or Mexican or Slovakian, no one can control the color of the skin they were born with (except Michael Jackson and my Goddamn sister-in-law who's trying to look like a Puerto Rican whore with all of that tanning she does) and if I had to vote for president today I would probably vote for a black man(Cain not Obama). It's when people start telling me to celebrate it or even worse be happy about someone being different over the things that they can control. There are all sorts of laws in this state that say a man dressed as a woman can use a women's restroom so long as feels like he should be a woman, that's not OK, what if I wanted to dress like a woman and hide in the stalls trying to catch and rape every lady that came near and said that I was supposed to be a woman, I was just acting out against what God did to me when I was born, in New York I'd probably be set free and sent to a shrink twice a month.

There's one type of diversity that we REALLY SHOULD be celebrating though and we don't - economic diversity. We are ashamed of the money we have and let our government give it to those who have done nothing in their lifes to earn it. All sorts of walks of life are rich and poor and according to experts our economic diversity has grown over the last ten years to the credit of George Bush. We should celebrate what we have, it is hot today - I will spend it in an airconditioned workplace, in my air conditioned truck and my air conditioned home. It used to be that if you couldn't afford all of those things because you didn't work you didn't get to have them. Now with more people poor than their have been there is more air conditioning - I know because I install it for a living and you wouldn't beleive who can supposably afford central air. It used to be if you didn't buy AC you sat on your porch all day yelling at the feral dogs in your hellhole slum. Now if you can't afford it I get to pay for it with my tax dollars while you trade your food stamps for ice cream cones with your do nothin family.

We should move back to being the type of society that celebrated economic diversity. It used to be TV shows would make fun of people sittin on the porch trying to beat the heat but now we for some reason need to make sure that they keep their houses at 65. Its not fair and not what our founding fathers envisioned. The founders wanted this to be a free country where all walks of races, Christian faiths and economic classes could come here to try and earn something and make something out of their selves. Now we just hand it all away to them, let them eat McDonald's and Friendly's and Ice Cream Cones all day in their air conditions holes while I work to keep them afloat. Its ridiculous - HUD should be dismantled and people on it should be made to work and learn how to find pay, it should be limitied. For all of the supposed cutting our Governor is saying hes doing doing he already left his mark when he ran HUD for Bill Clinton and encouraged these types of people to leech off of the system until they were hospitalized for their unhealthy eating and lazy lifestyles and Medicaid takes over to pay the bills with my money again.

Let's repeal this nonsense and get backto being a great country!

George Williams and My Liberties

As many of you know last week the FBI started an investigation of County Clerk George Williams. Many have beaten me to the punch on talking about it, but it was because I didn't care. Why on Earth would I be surprised that George Williams, the man who has purged several members of my family from the County Republican Party over his disagreements with them and who has ran the Clerk's office for over 30 years by blocking anyone from primarying him from the only credible party (the Republicans) that this county has because he has been the party chair, would be less than above boards with his dealings?

Of course he's corrupt, we asked for it. Everytime someone went to a County Committee meeting and feared standing up to the man because he could expel them the party they invited this kind of corruption of government. He's never had to deal with being in the minority party because democrats don't live here, which I am more than ok with considering the kind of filth that they generally support. But our party gladly stood behind him each and everytime he said "I'm going to fuck each and everyone of you in the face and ask you to think me," with his price hikes at the DMV and selling our personal information to private companies.

The reason I am posting now is because I found out something beyond corrupt about this whole situation, IQS - the firm this whole thing is about that's owned and run by Georgie Boy's comrade in Liverpool - never had a contracvt with the county and no record can be found of the county's dealing with them. George has let his best friend have access to each and everyone of our property, legal, credit card, banking and God know's what else information on good faith. Never brought it up to the legislature, never signed paperwork, just did it. Do you know what this company has been doing with it? I don't, these abstracting firms are all over the county and they can't be staying in business off $30,000 a year contracts with the county and legal property disputes. I've got a pretty good feeling that they have been selling off our information to corporations, marketing groups and those companies that you hear about whenever they get hacked that keep information on lieterally everything we do, every computer and screen name we own and use, and everything we are likely to do and all of our pass words and PIN numbers and ATM codes.

This is the biggest breach of my liberties that has probably ever happened, this corrupt demon has been selling all of my information to someone who we don't know what he's doing with it. IQS has no terms and no accountability, for all we know they are selling it to terrorists so that they can pull all the money from everyone in the County's bank accounts on the 4th of July to stick it to our freedom. Worst of all is Georgy isn't the only one doing shady business with them, Patty Ritchie actually had contracted IQS to do work for her county clerk's office in St. Lawrence County and I doubt she would do anything to harm the relationship she has with either a client of hers or the man housing her local office on our dime. Our last hope shockingly is with Bill Owens, I did not and still will not vote for him but he recently came out in support of TEA Party Senator Rand Paul's efforts to save our liberties before the President renewed the Patriot Act. So maybe Billie can give me a reason to stay home next fall.

I also really enjoy the part of the Post Standard article where Georgie's deputy, also named Georgie says while crying "this was all a big mistake we just shouldn't have done it" and Georgie Sr. says "I met with the FBI, they were nice people." What a fucking slickster. Call Patty Ritchie and tell her to stop spreading her legs for George Williams and IQS today! (315) 782-3418

Happy Memorial Day, Let's Celebrate Our Freedom While We Have It!

As many of you are aware, our gun rights are under attack again in New York State and the liberals in this State have decided that there is no better time to do this than when me and my family are celebrating the remaining freedoms that our forefathers died for. Apparently the microstamping bill is back, I've already been notified by the NRA about this terrible bill and its consequences for my freedom. If you don't remember this is the bill that said we would have to fork over 10 bucks per gun we owned to get the hammer branded with an individual fingerprint. The idea being that gun criminals will be caught because their bullets are unique and registered under their name. Because you know, illegal gun owners who use guns to kill people in cold blood are gonna go right down to whover the hell does this and pay good money to stay above boards on their slaughtering.

I own a lot of guns and live by the motto, if you break into my castle, you deserve what's comin' to you. I don't lock my doors, I let my dogs roam the lawn and I've yet to get stolen from. But say I'm away on a business trip and say I forked over the over thousand dollars to comply with the law on my guns and say I only brought my pistol with me while traveling. That leaves a lot of guns at my house and my wife's not strong and she sure as shit knows not to lock the doors on my house while I'm away because I don't carry keys and I don't ask permission to get back in my house. So I have all these guns that are ripe for the pickin' and if some bad guys kill my wife, kids and dogs to get 'em then I've got a real problem. They're gonna kill more people with these new guns they got that say I was the one killin' all those people. Or worse yet say they don't kill my family and were all covert about it and no one knows all these guns are gone and they kill people before a get back and I get back to hearing that I'm wanted for mass murder.

So now New York has made me pay them a lot of money to be arrested for being the serial killer that I'm not, why the hell would I comply? Who would comply, I'm a gun owner and the constitution has a second ammendment so that I can fight against them when they infringe on my God given rights. It's right there in the constitution - Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, if you try to take the last two away from me you'll have to take away the first to.

Its not all doom and gloom though. The Senate hasn't passed the microstamping bill and the Governor hasn't signed it, but I can tell he wants to, along with that Mayor in New York, I can see the pleasure they get from hurtin' Upstate passtimes in there eyes. Call Senator Patty Ritchie and tell her that you oppose this bill her number is (315) 782-3418. She got a A rating from the NRA, she's sold out on a lot of other issues but she can't sell out on this issue, this bill more than any other comes into conflict with how our Founding Fathers' saw the God given freedom of people like us. The last guy was against it and the NRA endorsed him, if she waffles on this I can tell you that I will regret voting last fall.

Start Cutting the Useless Laws, Not Making More of them

I've been reading about Patty's most recent bill that she's putting through the Senate called "Mark's Law." This law came about because an EMT up North was shot by a lunatic he was trying to save, shouldn't have happened, the man should go to jail, get raped, beat and face the same justice that you or I would face if we did the exact same thing to anyone with the same mentality and motivations. Unfortunalely Patty Ritchie feels that this is a perfect excuse to say that "first responders" are worth more to society than you or I. While they do important things, like one could argue mayors and Senators do, they aren't worth any more than you or me or an unborn child.

Casting distinctions between human's worth is criminal and its precisely what's wrong with abortion. Real Pro-lifers everywhere feel that aborting a child should be punished exactly the same way killing your child because you didn't feel it was necessary to parent it it would be punished. Now as a society we, for some reason are setting up three classes of people - fetuses, the lowest class - most people, the middle class, and public servants, but especially first responders, the upper class, first tier, Brahmin preist class. When you divide people based on their worth you are supporting eugenics, people that abort are less educated and lower IQed and their kids (that they've ritually sacrificed for the D'nC) would've been too, people that are first responders are well educated, high IQ fast on their feet people. We want everyone to be smart, right? Punishing the lower class so that they won't breed and saying that the upper class is worth more is not the way to do it, letting people kill themselves off by stupid actions is. You know who believes in this sort of ftuff? evolutionists. You know who tried to build societies like this Nazi's, Soviets, the French before the rvolution and slave owners in the South. Republicans don't support nonsense like this, we freed the slaves to let them try to work their way through society, Democrats are the ones who said let's get 'em on affirmative action so they can make more money faster even though they don't deserve the work any merits and we are hurting society. I could go on for days about how immoral valuing the worth of one life over another is, but primarily its unChristian in everyway.

There is also the argument that we pay these first responders through taxes and health insurance and that they are already getting an inflated sense of worth by taking tax dollars from us when we don't need it. My friends that live and pay taxes in the City of Oswego can tell you that the last thing they need to pay for is more cops and firefighters, especially not cops and firefighters that are valued by society like golden calves, while the rest of us lose out on our income to pay their way, our children go hungry or our idiot in-laws ABORT their chidlren because they fear they'd go hungry.

There's all sorts of laws on the books she should be working to get rid of, liek the ban on outdoor woodboilers (I thought the last guy fixed that, the State's saying I have till June to get rid of mine) or all sorts of other laws telling me how I can and can't parent. Or better yet all of the worthless laws that make New York stop number one one the trail of tears that so many unborn march on and let my sister-in-law think that even though she's married, works full time and is married to a good, wage-earning man who busts his ass day in, day out to support her that she can go to a doctor to get her "lady-problems" taken care of and that I have know right to tell her what I think about it.

Support Oswego County Business and Tourism, We Need It!

Patty Ritchie needs to support the Oswego County economy everytime there is an opportunity. When the she votes on the State vegetable (which is nonsense for the State to be voting on anyways, but if they must) she should vote for onions. We are one of the 10 largest onion producing counties in the nation and if New York is going to show that it is more than just New York City they should support the agriculture that works, which is much farming. I worked on a muck after I was out of high school and I know a lot of people who worked on mucks for there first jobs. Its hard work and the pay is cheap but its how we get by here and she needs to support our industry every chance she gets.

The thing that she is doing that really pisses me off is supporting Waddington as the Ultimate Fishing Town USA here: She should be supporting Pulaski, people travel from all over the country to go Salmon fishing in Pulaski, all anyone ever fishes for in Waddington is Carp and trout and nobody is every proud when they reel in a 8 oz carp after they traveled to Waddington in the frozen north, they just get dissapointed and never go back. I know why she's supporting it because she's from St. Lawrence County and I'm sure is proud to see a do-nothing, never-was town like Waddington get recognized by someone for something, regardless of if its desereved. But Pulaski is fishing and anyone across the country knows that Pulaski is where you go in the fall if you want to catch big, beatiful salmon and the place is always overflowing with sportsmen from across the country who love the fish there. No one does that in Waddington. And salmnon tastes better anyway.

Publicity is what Pulaski needs to stay on top and tourism dollars is what Oswego County needs, especially with our tax burden, which is much worse than ST. Lawrence County. We need people coming here and paying sales tax, St Lawrence doesn't they have border towns and Canadians go there anyway. No one ever travels to this county from outside of it, they go to Syracuse or the Adirondacks depending on what they want to do and its a shame that she is not supporting Oswego County tourism. Business is dying here, taxes are at a high and our economy needs a shot like nowhere else.

STARs and Stripes Forever!

This article is another violently upsetting dissappointment it what is hopefully the short reign of Patty Ritchie as State Senator. Her platform, her campaign and all of her support was over the STAR Rebate program and now in an interview her staff is saying "so what, its their fault" and the money's not in the budget. Bullshit! its not your money to have in the budget. These rebate checks are the people's money, the earners and property owners who break their backs to live in the 17th highest taxed county in the Nation, its not simply ok to say politically we can't do this right now.

In the Fall, every time I heard Patty speak in person it was about the STAR rebates that I wouldn't receive, again, if Darrell was reelected. Every piece of mail or ad on the TV said that if he went back to rpresent me in Albany I again would not be getting my hard earned money back from the State government. His idea was supposedly to not tax you according to some complicated rate that I'm sure would have loopholed me out or something, I couldn't understand it, it wasn't across the boards money back and it didn't pass anyway. And Patty's idea was let's just go back to that old thing people liked, the one where we gave them their money back, you know the money they earned. Except now her staff is saying that they don't have the money to give and maybe in the future, and Will Barclay is sayign "the program had problems" well why didn't we do that new one then? Why are we giving up and saying fuck it, I guess we can't do STAR, let's talk about gay marriage until no one hasd a job anymore?

This has to go back to being issue #1 for Patty Ritchie, she was a taxpayer advocate, this and her corrupt staff are making her look like a useless government advocate and if it looks like a duck guess what? ITS A FUCKING DUCK.

Don't Abuse the System for Personal Gain

I was upset to read this article this morning: If you didn't read it, it's about how the county government has been wrongly using parking permits that the city gave them. According to the article they are only suposed to be used by legislators during the meetings so they can get down to business without interuption. And of course it turns out that someone over there decided to just give the permits out to everyone in the building.

This is unfair to every person who gets ticketed by that miserable metermaid for parking 5 minutes too long at the library or downtown and has to pay the $50 fine or whatever it is. This is the type of screw it to the taxpayer nonsense I expect from the public unions and party bosses that run our county government, but not what I would expect from commonsense taxpayer advocate number one Patty Ritchie and her fine staff. It shocks me to the bone that someone that we have put so much faith in to cut the corruption at taxpayer expense, who ran as a TRUE Conservative and was endorsed by the conservative AND Taxpayer parties would allow her employees to abuse our trust like this. Government employees shouldnt be exempt from the rules the should be held to the rules under the strictest standards be cause they are the ones who make them.

How can we trust Patty Ritchie to now to stand up for the little guy small business owner when she is looking the other way while the City hammers us down with fees and fines while her own staff is running around doing as they please. Did she hire these people from the party boss hierarchy that built a system on the backs of the taxpayers to profit themselves. I'm certainly no democrat, but no conservative in this county has ever trusted the Republican machine to do what's right. Patty was different, she wasn't hand picked by the County Party to take they seat liek they have always done with the Barclays, she earned her spot by knocking on doors and talking to the Real working people. Now she has cast all of our trust aside and is feeding off the tits of the Republican machine. I now remember over the winter when she appointed this Holly Carpenter woman to run her local staff that she had voted to lower her own taxes when she was in government in Fulton while everyone else's taxes rose. What are we to do now? Our representative has sold out and I fear that if she doesn't set this right she will never come back as a REAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE TAXPAYERS, she'll be all regal like Jim Wright, Darrel or the Barclays and spend her days in Albany on her thrown telling us what we can and can't do.

Please Patty Ritchie make your employees pay the fines and fire that wench Holly Carpenter!

Give the People Osama's Body

As everyone has heard, Osama Bin Laden has finally been brought to justice by a team of Navy SEALs and special forces. Sunday was one of the great days in American history, we beat the bad guy and now the world know that the US is not a country they can attack without serious backlash.

One thing really rubs me the wrong way about the whole thing, actually two things. The first is the President's apolagetic attitude about the whole thing, "this is not a war on Musilims, its a war on extremists." Well I got news Mr. President nows not the time for that, now is the time for saying "fuck you bad guys NEVER AGAIN will you attack American soil because of our freedoms. And then Bin Shotted's Muslim burial at see, it simply wasn't the right thing to do. We should hav brought it back here for every American who watched the TV on 9/11 to spit on. There is no reason we should have given that body any respect because now he's gonna get his 40 virgins or whatever because he died like a marter.

Well I was thinking about how our government could make it right for Americans and give us the closure we need. I saw that they had a $27 Million bounty on his head, what better way to spend that money than to lift his body from the rest of the ocean and then splitting the rest of it among the Heroes who killed him. That's why I want Patty Ritchie, as a Senator from New York where 9/11 happened to pass a bill that will spend the money that way and make sure that no Arab Muslims in Pakistan get any of that money for calling some hotline. Thius is the type of thing Patty Ritchie needs to get on quick because that body is going to rot and get eaten and we need to make sure that it does not get any respect at all!

Another Small Business Closes

This story is sad and is another sign of the state of Oswego County. What I think is the only record store in the County (maybe, I don't exactly frequent these places) is closing today and the owner is apparently going to be homeless because he lives there. Record stores have there own problems, I don't think my kids have ever been to one and I haven't set foot in one in at least 15 years, but it's sad to see Oswego County completely pull away from an industry like it is doing today.

The solution to the problem is tax rates, at the State level we need to cut taxes, cut taxes and cut taxes so that our small businesses can survive in down times, which are here for the long term as businesses like Birdseye flee the area, and more people lose their income or choose to go on Unemployment. That's why Patty Ritchie and her colleagues need to zero out small business taxes for the coming year at least until the employment rate is what it used to be, make cuts to next year's welfare, unemployment and Medicaid because if Small Businesses are able to make it through this downturn, they will be able to hire again and welfare, unemployment and Medicaid will be irrelevant.

Its too late for Mr. Webb and his store, but there are other small business sectors that Oswego County has that are locally owned and operated: construction, grocery stores, drug stores, etc. that don't need to be killed by taxes.

Fight for the REAL Working Families

Even though the State has passed the budget, for some reason the Governor and Legislature have 2 more moths left to effect how we live in New York. With all that free time it makes me nervous what a guy like Cuomo could do. I'm also pretty uneasy about how the Long Island and New York City Republican Senators and the remaining democrats could probably get together and force upstate to keep paying the majority of this State's bills.

I keep hearing about gay marriagew this and civil union that on blogs and in papers, but I hear nothing about a local tax cap. The State already caved on cutting education fundign like they orginaly said they were going to and spent some $200 Million more than they were going to which was still to high and not one person, not one said if we are gonna tax give all this money to school's why don't we make sure they won't raise there taxes this year. Last year I even gotta letter from the last guy and his evil Democratic bosses aying they wanted to do it. This year nothing.

What I keep hearing though is that New York wants to legalize gay marriage. This will not create one single job Upstate, you know why? because there aren't gay people here, I do not know one single gay person, not that I work with, not that goes ot MY church, not that teaches my kids or serves me beer. You know where they all do live manhaten. This is just another ploy to boost business downstate, while saying that my loving marriage to my third wife is equal to their sinful lifestyle and are State not only officialy agrees but they say I should feel ashamed about my opinion.
I know Patty Ritchie won't sell my family out, I would not have supported her in the fall if I knew she was going to extremes that not even the donkey before her went to. What has me worried is that she is apparently close to that DEDEDE the RINO Queen who is all for this. I know she will spend the remainder of her term making life better for Upstate, not ignoring our needs and troubles for "feel good" downstate "civil rights" campaigns. That is all a load of shit so bad and you know it and I know it that none of us are effected by any of it.

A Win for the Children

Yesterday Patty Ritchie shut down the nanny state. Now my boy will be able to do what he wants to do at recess and at in the park. We don't have to worry about what the government says about kids playing tough on the playground because Patty the Pitbull wants the government to know we won't let our kids be coddled. After Patty had a unexpected hard tough interview on Fox the government stopped saying what my boy can and can't do to other students. Patty gave nonensense common sense parents like me a vote of reassurance yesterday.

From what I read this is Patty's 3rd triumph over government regulations in this state after the new license plates, which she outlawed or something and food safety. Now the mrs. can put what I want in the food when its our family's turn to bring food to school functions and my kid can fight how he wants to at school. Thank you Patty for shutting these fools and their rules down.

Now lets have a win for the adults. Lets get down to job creastion the way we should by deregulating and untaxing everything in New York. Lets stop making employers buy insurance for their employees or lets repeal Obamacare, we can't have people creating jobs in New York if the workers keep taking from profits, costs will go down when people have to pay for it themselves. Cut the tax rate for businesses and all earners, make all welfare mothers take drug tests, kick failing students out of public schools so that I don't have to pay school taxes for their dumb 15 year old ass to be babysat, cut teacher pay, make all state retirees pay taxes on their income and stop letting new people into the program. We have to be a state that makes stuff again or every company is going to go the way of Birdseye, to places where the bosses are leaders not the worker.

Way to stick it to the MSM!!

I just saw on Newzjunky that Senator Patty Ritchie will shove it hard down the Mainstream Media elites' throats by appearing on Fox News today at 11:30. What had been a slow work week, not many people are upgrading their Central Air systems in April, especially not given our county's unemployment rate and fuel prices, has delivered a pretty decent afternoon for myself. According to the link, she will be discussing her war on imasculating our children. This is exactly the type of no nonsense, common sense fighting we need from our representatives, give 'em hell Patty!

From what I understand the state wants to outlaw red rover on playgrounds. I find that interesting because when my boy was playing kickball in the park 5 years back, I tried convincing him and the other kids to start running at each other and tackling (just like red rover) and quit paying pussy soccer-baseball, some other parents didn't like what I was doing and the cops were called. Well guess what Nanny State, it wasn't even illegal and with representation like Patty, its never gonna be illegal. Kids should be playing rough games from an earlier age, this is why the NFL isn't filled with white guys from the North like it used to be, we've stopped teaching our kids to be tough and our culture is paying a price for it. From an early age I've taught my kid to be tough like a man, other parents, teachers and the State didn't agree but Patty sure as hell agrees with how I parent and our kids' rights to pound the snot out of each other.

This is exactly what Patty should be fighting for because if we are ver going to make stuff again, we need tough kids who won't be afraid to work in a factory without having benefits or who demand going to college despite the fact that they're dumb as shit, like most of them are. This isn't stimulus this is long-term job growth, thank you for fighting for us and for giving the MSM the 1-2 by going to Fox News instead of: The Post Standard, The Pall-Times, The Watertown Daily Times, The Valley News, The Ogdensburg Journal, Oswego County Today, Channels 3, 5, 9 and 10 down here, WRVO, WSYR or any other local MSM, the people you really represent only get their news on Fox News and blogs, you're doing the right thing. They won't try and get around the point of what you're doing like everyone else will by asking things like what are you doing to improve joblessness in your district? when are you holding meetings about that plant that's leaving your district? or incredible liberal nonsense liek "why are you cutting education funding when your region is so reliant on it and letting the top tax rate expire?" We all know the answer to all of those - that's irresponsible.

The Day Oswego County Died

I have been away for a while, some commenters led me to beleive that maybe I was holding our newly elected Senator to an unreachable standard, that my writing abilities showed how stupid common sense conservatives like myself really are (I was an honor role student in high school, I didn't go to college because my family couldn't afford it, thank you), and that my ideals are not something that any government wants to acknowledge.

Well, Patty and readers I am back and critics be damned, my voice will not be silenced! Our County was dealt the worst blos its seen in a very, very long time today. The Birdseye Plant in Fulton is closing, some of the last people in the County (besides Novelis) that mass produce a real thing you can hold in your hands for our Nation to buy will be moving to Wisconsin. Patty Ritchie we are dying here and its time the State finally did something good for the working men and women.

Its no coincidence that Wisconsin was chosen by Pinnacle Foods as the home of their new plant because as every non-union working man in the Republic is well aware, taxpayer funded unions were just outlawed there and for good reason. After the government, unions are the main barrier between the common man and liberty, they keep the longest serving, highest paying members employed and reward them first for their work, regardless of their contribution becasue they are the ones who repeatedly vote for corrupt union bosses. We witness everyday the disgustingly high standards that union employees set for themselves, the real reason health care costs in our (once)great nation is because all union employees demand that their bosses pay for their insurance, it doesn't matter how much it costs because they aren't the ones paying it, the taxpayers and consumers are.

Senator Patty Ritchie I am pleading with you and all of the other Senators, do what you can to prove that Upstate will no longer be safe for unions, give Pinnacle a reason to stay. While Wisonsin may still have private unions, Pinnacle knows that they are next to be outlawed and that's why they are moving there. No company can make a profit when all 250 of their employees demand that their asses be wiped daily by the boss, that's not how business works and that cannot be how America works. Until we do something in New York, employers will flee to places like Wisocnsin where they know that workers will appreciate the opportunities that are given to them and will work to earn themselves a better life.

Patty, do what you can to make this company stay here for another year, pay them off if you must with tax breaks and "grants" and spend the next year fighting to show these people that Upstate can make things again!
