    Amazon Cancels NYC Project Because Of Ultra-Liberals

    I watched a video of NY State Senator Gianaris (who wanted to scale back the incentive package being given to Amazon) from last week, after the NY Times said that Amazon was having second thoughts about coming to NYC. Gianaris said it was just a negotiating ploy by Amazon. That little girl from Queens, AOC, said that the money can now be spent on "real" jobs for the area. lol. There's no pile of money. There's nothing. Growth can be painful. Decline is much worse.
  5. "After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens. For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term. While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City. We are disappointed to have reached this conclusion — we love New York, its incomparable dynamism, people, and culture — and particularly the community of Long Island City, where we have gotten to know so many optimistic, forward-leaning community leaders, small business owners, and residents. There are currently over 5,000 Amazon employees in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Staten Island, and we plan to continue growing these teams. We are deeply grateful to Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, and their staffs, who so enthusiastically and graciously invited us to build in New York City and supported us during the process. Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio have worked tirelessly on behalf of New Yorkers to encourage local investment and job creation, and we can’t speak positively enough about all their efforts. The steadfast commitment and dedication that these leaders have demonstrated to the communities they represent inspired us from the very beginning and is one of the big reasons our decision was so difficult. We do not intend to re-open the HQ2 search at this time. We will proceed as planned in Northern Virginia and Nashville, and we will continue to hire and grow across our 17 corporate offices and tech hubs in the U.S. and Canada. Thank you again to Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, and the many other community leaders and residents who welcomed our plans and supported us along the way. We hope to have future chances to collaborate as we continue to build our presence in New York over time."

    Staying in Jersey

    You put it perfectly, bushden! You're a very lucky man. I hope to have the same joys as you … in a few short years. My wife's parents retired and moved to Wayne County, Pennsylvania. They did well in the sale of their home here, and built a nice little house right on a small lake out there. Have a small dock with a little fishing boat, bought a couple jet-skis, have a few simple spare bedrooms for people to stay in. A real nice set up. But, their many grandchildren were all still back here in NJ. And, the kids' weekends were full of all kinds of activities here, all year long. So, many, many weekends … it was the grandparents having to drive back to NJ, to be a part of their grandchildren's lives. I'm staying in Joisey. I may not be able to strap on a Glock when I go out to buy a gallon of milk, but I'll have my grandkids. To each, his own.

    Hand Guns

    I only own two handguns, that I bought 30 years ago, at the same time. A Ruger GP100 revolver. As mentioned …. plinking with .38's, and bigger fun with the 357 loads. A Springfield 1911 45, because every red-blooded American should own one. lol. And, it's a great load for blasting 2 X 4's in half, up at Cherry Ridge's board cutting competitions. Have fun.

    Great state of the union address

    I don't think so, Batsto. There is no party for JFK today. As there is no party for Ronald Reagan today. As there is no party for me today. I think the very bedrock of our democracy is being shaken. Our country is in dire need of leadership. I hope we get it soon. My stinking two cents.

    Staying in Jersey

    All three of my sons, in their mid to late twenties, are making their way in life here in New Jersey. Grandchildren will be coming soon. I'm staying. I just try not to think about all the crap.

    22 LR Rifle

    Absolutely. The man that runs the company is a really nice guy, and goes out of his way.
