now since Cuomo (and before that Spitzer), there was not going to be any evil drilling.
so they will drill it and suck it out in PA and NY will get zero and this could have made NY economically viable and end income tax. But the Dhimmicrats would not have the power over people if they did that.....
I really wonder what kind of self-created delusional bubble some people live in, that they never see these consequences of their actions coming.
Oh no, not to the south at any rate. Don’t need any quasi-commie union thugs here, who endorse and embrace every plank of the left’s platform until one hits them in their own faces.
Exactly, and that’s why I’m not exactly gung-ho for these people to follow their jobs to the red states when they move. They naturally don’t like a law which cost them their job, but they still embrace the other planks of the left’s platform, and will bring it all with them, and immediately start telling the native “hicks” how they’re all wrong for not supporting the watermelon agenda, abortion, the sodomite agenda, etc.
Is an “enterprise zone” anything like a “promise zone”, where they get incentives, but only for hiring blacks?
Remington may also be discovering there’s quite a market for suppressors. While legal for them to make (a change in law just for Remington), that NY residents (including their own employees) can’t buy them is just one more reason to leave.
"In 2005, Calspan Corporation was returned to independent ownership when a local management group purchased the Aeronautics and Transportation Testing Groups of the Western New York operation from General Dynamics."
Although he was an accomplished race-car driver, Milliken's best-known feat behind the wheel of his Bugatti Type 35 was rolling the vehicle in a 1948 road race at Watkins Glen, New York.
The accident happened when he overtook a supercharged MG at 160 km/h approaching a turn known as ''thrill corner''. Millikin recalled in 2001: ''I managed to pass him, but it was so close to that corner and the brakes on the Bug are not the world's greatest. I lost it on the corner and spun out and hit the hay.''
He emerged from his flipped car unscathed. The turn has been known as ''Milliken's Corner'' ever since.
One of his successes associated with high-speed cars was his role helping to design a stunt for the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun, starring Roger Moore.
For many years, Milliken worked as a senior engineer at the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, a research facility in Buffalo, New York, associated with Cornell University. In the late 1960s, some of the scientists under Milliken's purview began running computer experiments on how to flip a car in midair using ramps. The researchers, using complex mathematical calculations, proved it was possible and invited a test driver to try it out.
The resulting barrel-roll move was employed by Moore's 007 secret agent persona during a car chase scene filmed in Thailand in a single take.
Milliken was born in Old Town, Maine, once known as the canoe-manufacturing capital of the world - hence his use of canoe wood in the early 1930s to build an aircraft. Today, the Milliken M-1 aircraft is in the collection of the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Maine.
In 1934, he graduated in mathematics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and after working at Boeing during World War II, he joined what became the Cornell Aeronautical Lab.
Milliken retired in 1976 as chief of the transportation research division and started a consulting business. He worked up until his death. In his spare time, he participated in more than 100 car races. He finished sixth in the 1947 Pikes Peak hill climb in Colorado, and in 2002 and 2007 drove his own radically designed MX-1 race car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England."
No more GPs at (the expanded) Watkins Glen.
But if that’s true, deeply true, what are they doing in leftist unions, or being represented by them?
My next door neighbor (who worked for Milliken at CAL), when I wuz a kid, was the Chief Timer and Scorer at Watkins Glen.
I moved NY to GA a while back. In GA, 2/3rds of vehicles are SUVs, trucks or jeeps. NY sees very few of such on the roads, presumably because they can afford neither the larger size nor increased fuel.
In what part of NY did you live? Upstate and outside the cities most of the vehicles you see are pickups and/or SUVs. They're needed to get around in the winter.
The unions need to become a big tent to survive and let people in who are pro-gun, pro-life and pro-borders.
Bill did the computer modeling for the Astro-Spiral jump for Jay Milligan’s thrill show in 1972. I met Jay Milligan (himself a NY native from Orchard Park) at the Fair in Danbury, CT in 1974. He was running the American Thrill Show. They had just completed filming of the “Man with the Golden Gun” where they did the stunt again.
I have the program in my hand right now with all the guys autographs and the story on the jump at the Houston Astrodome.
I wish I had seen the jump in person. Anyway, the show they put on in Danbury was quite a thrill for a 12 year old boy.
Every time I drive through Western Upstate NY, it just looks right from the fauna and flora.
The NYS Regents at the time ran a high quality and tight ship.
I'd be happy to live there again, but not as a citizen/taxpayer.
Arms manufacturers moving south can only be a good thing over the long run. Should we ever have to rise again, we will need their help to stand up to the mightily corrupt force of Washington.
I feel in my heart that one day the south will rise again.
This is one reason I don’t mind Liberal states shooting themselves in the foot. Althou I am quite Obviously appalled by the New York ‘safe act’ burial assault upon the essence right to keep and bare arms.
I am nonetheless inclined to let this play out in New York as a non-new Yorker. I will tell New York Patriots to carry on their fight and keep their guns illegally if necessary. But this is a New York problem that must be solved in New York.
Until then tell your neighbors that we in the south don’t mind at all taking all your manufacturing jobs. If y’all want to join us down here your welcomed.
Elmira was the glider capital of the US at one time.
No longer the case?
(I once witnessed the Havana Baseball Team play the Buffalo Team (in the International League) - (and have been to Cuba, NY)).)
“..you vote for libtards, you get laws from libtards,...”
Agent, that is THE motto of the year, as far as I’m concerned.
Excellent post, brother.
Remington should come to Pennsylvania.
We are a Gunny State, and we will jealously defend that status.
And they WILL find people who want to work, no problem.
Same as Calexico/Mexicali border. Simply stunning.
I believe there were a few glider manufacturers after WWII there but no longer.
Alabama is a conservative and very religious state. I reckon the gun folks from NY might be conservatives, but they better be ready for the question: “What church y’all go to?” or “Have y’all found a church yet?”
The people hare are not going to force you to go to any church, but as good Christians will be wanting to share the Good News, that’s all. I’m a Catholic, and heck, I don’t mind it at all. My little parish is ultra-conservative, probably because of the Baptist influence! We even have Wednesday night bible classes. We fit right in!
“Union official” says that like its a bad thing
Rural, from Syracuse to Batavia.
NY is not a right to work state. The workers can be forced to join a union whether they like it or not.
Thanks. I forgot that in union states, people can be forced to join in spite of their wishes.
In which case I am truly surprised that you didn’t see many pickups or SUVs. I see them all over the Finger Lakes.
Thanks. I forgot that in union states, people can be forced to join against their wishes,
why oh why does “the media” keep mentioning the weapon that the perp at sandy hook......never USED??
.......absolutely right you are! These socialist unionist New Yorkers have had things real good for a long time. But, forget about wages or anything else. The culture shock between Ilion and Huntsville will be devastating.
Think of growing up in say upscale neighborhoods of, pick a town..........hmmmm, lets say Boston, and then being forced to move to Odessa, Texas home of REAL roughnecks, rednecks, chicken fried steaks, and Friday night high school football with a view out the window wherever you are of the apparatuses of the oil industry and tumble weeds rolling down the street! That’s REAL culture shock substantially analogous to Ilion/Huntsville.
And, the union boss would be strung up to a light pole the first week! He just couldn’t come at all.
Elections have consequences...
Who did the Union support in the last several elections?
