He said that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” have “no place in the state of New York.” He began by ripping into the Tea Party

“no place in the state of New York.”

Since NY is losing population it seems they agree.

How tolerant of Andrew.
And I suppose those Pro-Gun, Pro-Life, Pro-(Traditional) Marriage, Pro-Fracking residents don´t pay taxes too?

NYC just elected a Communist Mayor and not one word of dissent from Gov. Cuomo. We now know what Cuomo is. I will never set foot in NY again. Thanks for letting us know that we are not welcome. I remember the day when we fought wars to stop Communism. Men and women died fighting for our freedoms. Our country is in big trouble when our leaders support Communism and condemn Freedom.

New York State is a special place. 80% democrat, most residents are on the state teat. But the state ain´t got no money, so they will ask the federal government to bail them out. And so will Illinois, California, and Connecticut.
And should democrat win the presidency in 2016, the bailouts could happen.

The title left out one group, anyone who is Pro-GOD.

Didn´t Satan claim he would be like the "Most High"? Democrats believe they are like the "Most High". They are self-deceivers believing they are progressive, leading the way, forging new beliefs and practices with new and fresh ideology in hand that will benefit humanity.

What they are really doing is destroying themselves, destroying our culture and society and destroying America by embracing old and historically failed humanistic destructive policies.

King David understood God´s infinite knowledge and compares it to human´s finite inferiority knowledge. Yet today´s Democrat believes only in "self", not God, and human´s ability to create a superior world than God. When man believes he is God, man imposes his will on others and people die. Unborn babies die. Marriage and family dies. Freedom and liberty dies. Morality dies. Values die. Character dies. Common sense and logic die. Truth dies. The only thing that grows is their power until the whole nation succumbs to their antics.

The Day of Reckoning is coming and everyone will confess that Jesus is Lord, but for Democrats and their unbelieving supporters, it will be too late.

Obviously he is appealing to his Constituents, those that he knows will vote for him. A sad Democrat in a sad political party that represents a sad ideology. New York State is no longer a State for middle income earners. You must either be poor or well-off to live nicely. The Governor is attracting high tech companies by giving enormous tax breaks and offering tax free zones to NEW businesses, at the expense of the current businesses. The points in his recent speech are despicable.

Tell all the New Yorkers that are “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay”" and "have “no place in the state of New York”" to pack it up and move south. We can offer no city income tax, low or no state income tax, and much better weather. Plus we have better people than the NY Dems.

Now this is funny. Missouri has rescinded its extermination order against the Mormons and Illinois has apologized. That was in a different era where it was impossible to police and vigilantes and militia and a few judges were what was on the frontier.

So is Cuomo going to issue a shoot on sight for said conservatives of which many churches, conservative churches have a majority of that demographic?

The people of the 1850´s (worldwide)weren´t the people of the 21st century. Products of their time and place (and as God had his hand in the process IMO)

The US military or Homeland Security going to handle this one and will HS have the guns pointed inward on the US citizens?

The Missouri-Mormon thing happened in the pre-Civil War days when New England Yankees and later poor UK folks came in droves to a slave holding ambitious state.

Upland New Yorkers exiles from the English Civil Wars against other fighting Celts of the Jamestown and other peopling of the south?

In any case Cuomo´s statement is very inflammatory and thoughtless. Politician stirring the pot and getting the masses to mill.

The religious must leave New York? How about the upstate individualistic producers? The world economy movers and shakers.

Dittos #26, I grew up in NY State and hated it for all the reasons you mentioned. Left about 40 years ago also and never went back. NY is run by Mafia-types and the people upstate are nasty busy-bodies and most of the police act like goons. I think being cooped up indoors for 9 months out of the year is part of the problem.

I could not believe my eyes when I read that Cuomo said this. Is he that sure of himself? Does he think that everyone in the state should agree with him on all three issues?

Many citizens are pro on at least one of these issues--even democrats. Can Andrew afford to alienate them all?

Cuomo is putting out ads saying there are 10-yr tax free zones everywhere. Guess who is going to make up for those lost taxes?
He also amassed a nest egg of $2 billion for the state. He did this by imposing more mandates on the counties and lowering state contributions to those new and old mandates. Guess who pays for that?

Cuomo is a loser and should be jailed for grand theft against the residents. I´m sure time has already ran out for his grand theft at HUD. Guess who ended up paying for that grand theft.

Has the Republican party of NY responded? I would be surprised if it did. Moderates Republicans have the same mentality as Democrats.

There was a time that the state of New York had 45 congressional districts. Under 30 today.

No business locates to New York unless the government makes special deals with them. Crony capitalism at its best.

If this country really had an economic recovery, New York would likely never see it considering its anti-business climate.

A man accused of blowing up his daughter’s dog because he was mad at her is being held on $500,000 bail, but not for harming the pet pooch. “In the animal cruelty statute in the state of Washington it talks about animal suffering,” Undersherriff Dave Cox told ABC News. Since the dog died instantaneously and didn’t suffer before it died, “the prosecutor was concerned about that verbiage,” Cox said. Christopher Dillingham, 45, of Stevenson, Wash., allegedly killed the yellow lab named Cabala on Sunday after a dispute with his daughter, who was given the pet

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
