Remember in November

The Common Council approved the sanctuary city resolution by a wide margin.

The crowd contained large numbers of people brought in from outside the city who cheered at the slightest sound in favor of the resolution.

I am certain that many passed Kingstonians are flipping in their graves as we speak.

If Kingston has any real future other than being an extension of New Paltz and New York City, we must replace these Aldermen who did not oppose this legislation.

It is either that or we surrender Kingston as we have known it.

Guess I Haven't Lost My Touch

I publish an article criticizing the Freeman for not publishing the Sheriff's press release from some time ago expressing his opposition to the sanctuary city.

What happens?  Within 48 hours, they publish it, though they make it seem like the Sheriff approves.  You have to read 3/4 of the article before it becomes clear that he opposes it.

Glad I still have an effect with my blog, though the Freeman will of course deny it. We all know better though.

Daily Freeman -- Your Bias is Showing

Perhaps I'm old fashioned, but I expect my local paper to be print both sides of a debate and allow the readers to decide for themselves.  Unfortunately, it appears the Daily Freeman does not support this idea.

Just before Christmas, the Freeman posted a story about how Kingston Police Chief Tinti supports the Sanctuary City resolution.  However, they have refused to print the story picked up by the Middletown Record announcing that the chief law enforcement officer in Ulster County, our Sheriff, has come out strongly against the proposal.

Why would you post the Police Chief being in favor, but ignore the Sheriff being against it?  The left wing bias of the Daily Freeman is showing badly.
