The Government and for the moment I’m speaking of the county and town governments of Nassau County. There are 3 Towns,Hempstead, North Hempstead & Oyster Bay , 2 cities Long Beach and Glen Cove,64 incorporated village & 100 unincorporated villages should be Federalized or taken over by the state.
I don’t know what you think, But We here at The Lerman Report. Com think the varius Municipal Governments are totally out of control. None of these Municipal Entities exsist for the purpose of it elected officials non-elected officals, civil servants and political appointees to make a living..They exsist soley to run the government thats all. Enough is enough the politicians are giving away the store just self serving without any forthought for the Hardworking Taxpayer. The brakes have to be put on the wasteful spending..start by giving out pink slips to plum political patronege jobs..more scrutiny on each and every company that does work for various Gov’ts within & Nassau County.
30 years ago interest rate on a CD was 18% the municipalities made back their input to the civil pensions in 3 years..today interest is less than 1% .Today a Civil servant works for 20 years retires at 38 and with the lifespan & longevity the way it is can live up to 90 and collect for 50years..Uterly Outrageous! The extra fee on moving violations ,the red light cameras,the speeding cameras,the Town of Hempstead giveaway to the Green Acres Mall Developers voted by a non elected board and dont tell us that something of this magnitude didn’t pass muster with the higher ups? Managno and Venditto (Oyster Bay Town Supervisor)under federal incitement. Not only did the politicians sell out the future of this once great County but the present as well..Time for a big shakeup.
Nassau County Executive Ed mangano has proposed an additional fee which will be added on in addition to the actual ticket cost of a moving motor vehicle violation which is slated to go to fund police overtime & rising Police salaries.. Why should should Mr. And Mrs. Motorist pay for the county’s mismanagement of our taxes .We in Nassau County pay amoung the highest taxes nationwide,let the politician’s’start giving out some pink slips & layoff some feather betting jobs along with all the other plum political patronege jobs and save us from this fee. Its bad enough that I our auto insurance carriers tie into the DMV computor and when they see that we were ticketed our insurance rates go up. This new fee lends itself to perhaps overzealous police officers to engage in a speed up of some kind issuing more tickets since the extra revenue goes to fund the Police in one way or another…
We here at the Lerman Report would like to see The N.Y. State troopers take over all patroling on each and every state road in The County.. We are paying into the State coffers for thier services ..lets utilize them..also You can replace a Policeman with an Emt to arrive at an auto accident to take down the info ..You don’t need a high priced Police Officer to do that.Also ever read your tax bill ..well the Police Brass take a very big chunk out of the tax pie.They deserve a cut and out whatever the savings derived from that put towards the Rank and File Officers. Also cut starting back on Salary & pension give aways for top Brass .This fee is nothing but a crying shame on the motorist back…enough is enough..time to vote them all out of office..they no longer have our interest at heart.
RIGHT ABOVE CLICK OPEN LINK IN A NEW TAB TO HEAR ONLY–
There is an old expression” Please don’t Pee on my back and tell me its Raining”. There has to be an Independent Investigation into the Tax giveaway to the Green Acres Developers. The public will accept nothing short of complete reversal and if anything is found not to be above board .. Imprisonment for everyone on that board including each & every Politican involved. Don’t tell me that all the leadership in the TOH knew nothing..nobody buys that..Its very odd that non-elected board members vote on this travesty while the elected politicians sit buy and and dont have their hands sullied. We have to believe in our heart of hearts that something of this magnatude had to pass muster with the higher ups. Now board members are resigning left & right..well if you done nothing wrong and have nothing to hide then why are you resigning ? Ultimately in our opinion Town of Hempstead Presiding Supervisor Anthony Santino must be held to accountable too,after all he’s the top man on the totum pole in the Town of Hempstead. Now all the politicians are decrying the deal.. There’s no use shuting the barn door once the horses escape..To all TOH politician’s ” Please dont Bullshit a Bullshiter ” TODAY VALLEY STREAM tomorrow your town..
How many folks reading this post have ever been craped on by the Office manager of your Doctor’s office? Sooner or later we will all feel the Office Manager’s rath. They are rude, nasty, Disrespectful and downright inconsiderate. Do the Doctors accually know how they are treating their patients? Some do some don’t Doctors generally give their office staff a certain amount of autonomy.Having said that every businessman will tell you that if anybody in their employ had that miserable attitude,they would be shown the door. Somehow It seems to bypass Doctors. I had a wonderful Doctor..However l will no longer go to him due to the office managers attitude.
We often find it a bit unbelievable when the day after the election that you first hear about Who will be White House Cheif of Staff, or in this case that the press knew nothing of Steve Bannon’s top involvement & slated to be Trumps right hand man.We don’t by that for one minute. Not one press agency or reporter neither print or broadcast ever made mention of this.. Someone known for leaning & supporting White Supremacy & it was hushed up? Trump was supposed to clean up the Swamp of Washington DC..looks like he bullshited his voting base and is now either softening or reneging on his campaign promises only one day aftet the election. While where not fans of Chris Chriti with Bridgegate looming over him & The 23 cents a gallon Gasoline increace in Jersey, But after Christi lended his support all through the campaign to sort if drop him like a hot potato because Christi prosecuted Trump’s son in laws Father..you tell me that Trump was of aware of that situation at day one ? The first 100 days in office is supposed to be a Honeymoon peroid with the press looks like there’s realy no need for a “Honeymoon’ since it just about appears that the press was inbed with him all along.
Can anybody enlightened me as to what is the mystique of Sriracha condiment and Salted Carmel? I tried this Sriraacha sauce..its a big zero ..nothing to right home about .. a medicore second rate preperation if I ever saw one.Yet every place is on the Sriracha bandwagan.. Why ? I personaly would take a Tabbassco style sauce anyday, Fanks Red Hot or El Tappatio etc. I went to a famous Sea Food resturant & ordered Sriracha Shrimp all it was was shrimp with some Sriiracha sauce Sqeezzed on it..This is cooking ? My favorite is a Vietnamese preparstion Sambal Oelek (more like a pastes than a sauce),.Someone must own stock in some sort of Sriracha farm perhaps it’s their reason for pushing this product big time. Then their is Sriracha’s goood friend “Salted Carmel”again someone must own stock in Carmal pruduction,because its all over the place why every shmucck and his brother is selling some food product that has or is ‘Salted Carmel’ You be the Judge is it worth anything? We say no.
Does any one think in their right mind that congress will ever reform and police themselves.. It ain’t gonna happen. It irkes me too that these old cadavers can still roam the halls of Congress & the Senate untill the day they die. They have plenty of pull as long time incumbants they pull the strings in their party & stay in office.The only way that it will ever cease to happen is if we have something such as a Hostile Military Takeover such as General El Sissi pulled off in Egpyt.We dont and never should even consider going down that road because that will be the end of American democracy was we know it
But have Congress reform themselves..don’t make me laugh!
DON”T WATCH RERUNS of HOGANS Heros Its downright insulting to our men and woman who served in the Armed Forces and were POW”S.When you see the old T.V. series Hogan’ s Heros staring Bob Crane ,Richard Dawson amoung others it paints a false picture of all fun and games for the POW’S a great time of fun and comaraderie..This is the furthest from the truth for a WW11 German POW Camp inside a German Stalig or The Hanoi Hilton or for the poor souls who endored the Batan Death March of WW11 who were led to a Japanese POW camp. I personaly had an Uncle who was an American seviceman captured in North Africa by Romels invading Army and sent to a German Stalig. The beatings the Torture,the stuff that went there that we can’t even begin to print here. There was even a POW WW11 movie staring Peter Graves,Harvey Lembrick & William Holden..not as much different in portraying a false image of the reality of a POW camp ..once again it was all fun & games in Pow camp just like as The Hogan’s Heroes T.V.Show .
Whenever you see a War movie and you see the soldiers wearing offical U.S. Army uniforms or even refering to themselves as U.S Army or the post Office for that matter and they are in offical Post office attire be rest asured it has the complete blessing & approval of UNCLE SAM.. In other words perhaps our government wants this image to be shown as to soften what is the true reality of war is really like. If Uncle Sam dislikes the content of the script in any way shape, manner or form then it doesn’t give it’s approval to use official U.S. Uniform & insignias in that particular film. I saw many 3 stooges clips and the U.S.Army didn’t aprove of their portrayal of The Army & they had to use non official UNIFORMS & badges in their films ..DO NOT FEED INTO THIS DESPITION DONT WATCH IT WHEN ITS IN SYNDICATION & REFRAIN FROM BUYING ANYTHING THAT THE SPONCER SELLS.
Todays coffee is nowhere near as good as the coffee let’s say 30 years ago . once they switched to 11oz as from a full lb.can it’s just not the same anymore. yet more coffee is sold by the cup in outlets such as Starbucks, Panera,DunkinDonuts Seattles best than ever before either from Diners ,lunchonetts,and even those that were brewed at home .It seems that the worse it is the more popular it became. How many people use a percolator at home either a range top or electric anymore,maybe a Mr. Coffee type maker at home& you have to either microwave it or drink it fast as its never hot merely luke warm .
All coffee today is either a cheap Rebusto Bean or a quality Arabica Bean,gone are the days when all beans originated from South America,those days are history today 90% of coffee beans come from Vietnam.
I remember when Publics Supermarket packaged coffee. I was a snow bird and on my return trip to N.Y. I would pack a suitcase with Public Columbian 1lb brick.Today the airlines would think I was smuggling something not on the up and up.
Today I drink most of my coffee from outlets such as Panera Bread (unlimited refills) or IKEA FREE with their card..Bottom line it’s no longer good to the last drop.
