Not an awful piece
What is “Our View”.
I just clobbered a bunch of Twitter sociopaths...and now wondering if my club would be required here.
The blood stays on the blade. You’ll understand later.
My grandfather’s blade is ready.
Who’s got point?
Pretty sure I’m past the recommended alcohol intake for the evening.
Passing on command.
"It goes without saying that there will be protests during Trumps appearance, and the right to do that lawfully is among the freedoms we enjoy in our democracy. One such protest is being planned by Indivisible Mohawk Valley, Central New York Citizen Action and 1199 SEIU Upstate NY, according to a Facebook event page."
He will be at Fort Drum next week. The residents are excited Trump will be there. It’s a very economically depressed area and they hope there will be new civilian jobs coming. Trump is doing all of the right things . Going to upstate NY can only help him in the polls.
A Gannett newspaper actually being cordial to Trump ???
FWIW, Utica/Rome area is essentially an economic wasteland after Griffiss AFB and GE left the area.
It’s really depressing to drive around there. The empty/abandoned factories in every little town. They are monuments to the success of globalism and the ever increasing taxation levels.
I always have to remind our Press that we are "a Republic".
The Clinton administration closed Griffiss. I live just down the street from it. It’s more a business park now, but we still get military planes landing, and the Eastern Air Defense Sector of NORAD is there as well. I believe this sector was involved during the 9/11 attacks in New York.
