This driver might have been really high, but how many of us "think" we're okay, and "we don't have far" or "I'll drive careful" You don have to be bombed to do real damage to a person or a car, and wreck your own life in the process, along with whoever you hit.

Robert Demarco July 21, 2014 at 10:57 am
You are absolutely correct about the Walmarts of the country, but consider this: my family has aRead More Volkswagen, three Hyundais, and a Ford. The VW was built in Tennessee, with non-union labor, where the UAW just lost an election to unionize. The Hyundais were built in Alabama, also with non-union labor. The Ford was built in Mexico. It is difficult for the American car makers to compete with the foreigns because od excessive costs, especially legacy costs. I have family in NC, where cops, teachers, etc, with no unions, make the prevailing wage in the area, in other words, no $150K cops. Because public employee salaries are reasonable, taxes are low, the government is non-intrusive (not trying to bleed every dollar out of the citizens), and most working people lead a decent life. On the LIRR, with its excessive compensation, even that was not enough for these workers. As someone else wrote here, 98% of them felt they were entitled to disability pensions. This case stands on its own merits.
TomTuttle July 22, 2014 at 11:28 am
Do you know why those cars were built with non-union labor in Tennessee? Because these company'sRead More when they choose to build a factory they build them in the most economically depressed parts of the country which most of the time is the south part of the country. A part where Unionism never was popular. As for Ford building cars in Mexico, not true there are parts of the cars that are built in Mexico then the parts are shipped back to the US line and and assembled here. You can thank the NAFTA agreement for that. As for your comment about excessive costs in taxes and salaries compared to NC and that most working people lead a decent life. I agree with some of that but I do not blame working Union men & women for the difference in cost. I blame the politicians in this land we live in the NE. Your tax cost is what is making you miserable to survive here. I am one of them. If our tax costs ( school,property,sales,etc.) were as low as NC I do not think you and I would be having this conversation.At one time here where we live they were that low. NC like NY will eventually evolve into the same beast as more and more people arrive to their geography. This is what happens when the destination cannot handle the influx and had to hire more people and with people come politicians. Politicians now look at that neighborhood as a great place to get votes from and that starts the ball rolling.As for Excessive Compensation?? What is considered excessive to man like you? Someone who gets overtime when he has worked 12 straight hours when most people work 8? It sounds like I am splitting hairs but you work 4 more hours per day then most people during one week that's an extra 20 hours per week. I am sure you would want to be compensated also and you would ask for it. And your not even in a Union. ( not sure) 98% of the LIRR workers felt they were entitled to disability pensions?? I did not hear that stated?If it was coming from a disgruntled citizen or some Union hater not sure? I can say this, it's very easy for anyone to look down on the workers of the LIRR because they may make you late for your way of life when they are active in the collective bargaining process, it is not done intentionally. They are fighting for their way of life, their Livelihood. Just like you would if you heard that your company is looking to fire half the office. They have families,car payments,mortgages,school taxes just like all of us. I am a 3rd generation Union Man. And even before I became vested in the politics of Unionism, my Grandfather told me that you never look down on a working man who gets up everyday to earn a living. My father then told me that people need to walk a mile in a man's shoes before you can judge him. Something I feel has been 2 of the most truthful statements I have ever learned in my life. You can be mad that you might not be as compensated as well at your job as they are iin the LIRR, but then again that should give everyone a little blip of hope that these things are able to exist when people come together for the good of the worker. I enjoyed our banter. Thank you. All the best.
Robert Demarco July 22, 2014 at 11:58 am
Tom, you are an articulate spokesman for your cause, and I, too have enjoyed our little debate. IRead More just want to address one comment: I do not look down on the woprkingman. In fact, I do tax returns for many of these folks and a much reduced rate than they would pay elsewhere. It is a sideline for me, and I would not be comfortable ripping people off. I do find, however, an incredible sense of entitlement among the public employees. I would bet that most of these people never worked in the private sector, so they do not understand that their good fortune is due as much to politics as it is hard work. It is a shame that people of lesser means have to pay grossly inflated taxes so that these workers can have their high salaries and benefits.

I am far from being perfect. But am I the only one who doesn't have these problems? Are people thatRead More much out touch these days, that they are becoming dumb and stupid? Simple common sense. Ever herd the phase: "Out sight out of mind"? Lock you car doors (house too as they call it "Home Invasion" these days). Worry about windows being smashed? Then keep the valuables out of sight or take them with you. Otherwise smashed windows then would be just vandalism.

Hey, Tired of Excuses: Stop creating excuses for those unfortunate seniors who SHOULD NOT BE FLYING,Read More PERIOD! Private so-called pilots have no more authority or status than any rereational boater. THERE IS NO RIGHT TO FLY IN THE US CONSTITUTION. Most men die by age 80-85 max., and usually badly. I have nine years under the belt as a professional counselor of olde men, and am starting to be one myself. No one has the right to endanger others due to their unfortunate mental lapses. Yes, a single mechanical fault, OK, but twice...Get real, test these folks and yank their licenses, just like car problems. And yes, I've had it twice in my family. We cannot pretend that medical/biological problems do not exist. Wake up!!!
