Another fact-challenged Conservative, I guess.


I said upstate NY's population was dwindling, not the entire states...

Thirty-five counties in upstate New York lost population between 2010 and 2012, according to U.S. Census statistics.

New York City and its suburbs, including Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties, had a population increase of 13 percent over the three years, up 177,000 people.

And as far as my facts go.....

Let me google that for you

...another reading-comprehension challenged Liberal, I guess....

He said it to Susan Arbetter while speaking on the public radio program "The Capitol Pressroom". I'm sure you can get a transcript of the program, if you are really interested.
He is comparing moderate and extremist conservatives. Capiche?

Except for Liberals.....for whom the mere accusation of racism or homophobia is all the evidence of guilt that they require.

It's kind of like falsely accusing someone of rape.... the accusation itself holds enough social stigma to ruin the accused life forever regardless of guilt or innocence.

And that's what Liberals have done with "refusing to be tolerant of bigotry or hatred".....when you get to choose the definition of the crime, you can claim anyone you want is guilty of it.

Governor Cuomo just proved the double standard that the left follows "our views are the only legit ones".

oh and one more thing. Cuomo is RICH and WHITE. I guess because he is a liberal makes
that ok.

Andrew Cuomo: Pro-Life People "Have No Place in the State of New York" | LifeNews.com
Cuomo must hate blacks.

Many black people are pro-life.

He is a Democrat after all - and the Democratic Party has a long history of racism.

What, you liberals don't like Harrier's logic?

He is only doing what liberals do themselves all the time - and seemingly think is legitimate.

Doesn't change the fact that he said they had no place in New York. Capiche?

And this is from a person who has an ad appearing on many TV stations 'move your business to selected areas of NY and we'll give you a tax break.' His statement doesn't seem too welcoming.

Usage and meaning are two different concepts.

Isn't Cuomo Catholic? Does he know more than God? The Church that most New Yorkers subscribe to disagrees with Cuomo's extremist position.

What does Cuomo's faith have to do with anything. Do you know Cuomo has broken the tenates of the Catholic Church? Did he perform or sanction an abortion?

The church askes me to be a good catholic...not force others to be.
