Albany once again shows how much our lawmakers care when the state is facing a crisis. Governor Patterson has called on Albany to come up with proposals to address the state's budge crisis and looming deficit by November 18th. In typical Albany fashion the Democratic controlled Assembly and the Republican controlled Senate have said that they won't have anything ready by Governor Patterson's deadline. I have to giver credit to Governor Patterson in proposing cutting the budget by $2 billion even though both sides are balking at it. Albany needs to get it's head out of its ass and realize that if cuts aren't made the state is going to be in huge trouble.

Well Obama has done it, he got himself elected President of the United States. As much as I don't like Obama and his very liberal policies I must give the devil his due.
As Obama starts to build his cabinet he should also be prepared that those who disagree with him will be calling him out on every turn. As the Democrats and Liberals did to Bush, the Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarians will do to him and the Democratically controlled Congress. I would hope that with the current economic situation, Obama will realize that it would be very difficult to implament alot of his programs but of course this is just wishful thinking on my part.
