Adirondack Almanack Demands: Glens Falls Post-Star Must Register As A PAC

Want to understand why we are where we are? Why increasingly it seems as though Americans are living in some sort of strange fantasyland? Look no further – it’s all right here at Letters to the Editor:

Maybe, if the Post Star got its head unstuck from deep within its own posterior and actually covered the other three candidates (even a little bit), it wouldn’t be a foregone conclusion that the next mayor will be yet another unimaginative, uninformed, two-party type with deep development connections and a love of the franchise and big-box concepts. Unfortunately, their heads do seem stuck pretty far up in there!

We couldn’t agree more. It seems clear that now that the Glens Falls Post-Star has used its pages to overwhelmingly support only candidates from the Republicrats, that they must, by law, register as a Political Action Committee.

Have any doubt that our local Democrats have even the slightest clue about how to combat the ignorance? Just check out their webpage, as hollow a shell as their ideas.

And speaking of the fantasyland o’ fantasy fuel and forever fights for the freedom of foreigners. James Howard Kunstler offers his latest and baloghblog offers commentary on it.

By the way, Kunstler will be at Rock Hill Bakery in Glens Falls tonight at 7 pm, thanks to the Adirondack Progressives.
