The North Queens Cyber Soapbox

From Daysofourlives.comBreaking News: Silverstein takes on Governor from his toilet in Bay Terrace; pens complaint while taking a crap.

It’s the Thursday morning north Queens Cyber Soapbox, and like the times of ancient Rome when people would stand on their soapbox and preach to the crowd, now we do it on the internet.

This morning I received a dozen emails, voicemails, facebook messages etc. that pointed out different leads, different angles. But the real story is the cyber soapbox, where all the local leaders, friend and foe alike, share their presence on the internet.

I woke up to Steve Behar talking about the President.

A lengthy conversation took place in regards to Dan Halloran’s 6-page article in the Village Voice. There’s no right or wrong answer. It is what it is.

Bob Friedrich has regained his column in the Times Ledger between William Lewis (an Occupy basher) and Dee Richard to give a right leaning spin to every possible issue. A few folks were talking about that.

Elio Forcina had an urgent prayer request, “Please pray for the soul of a desperate mother whose children were starving in Texas-after being denied food stamps for the 5th time in months , she shot her 2 children, they are in the ICU and killed herself at the welfare office.”

Dan Halloran was posting pictures of the renovated Council Chambers.

Mathew Silverstein hailed a blog post on the Courier website as a monumental achievement. Apparently he’s angry over a $700 tuition hike at CUNY Schools. He  did not mention how hard our parochial schools have been hit nor did he relish in the MTA Payroll tax that will save non-public schools 8 million dollars next year.

Warren Schreiber, President of the Bay Terrace Community alliance continues to be way too nosey.

Al Centola, President of the Malba Gardens Civic mentioned his online impersonator that wrote a few unkind words about the Welcome to Whitestone Civic President, Devon O’Connor on the Times Ledger web page. This is why we don’t allow anonymous comments on Queens-Politics.com.

Whitestone Village was disappointed that Ed Braunstein couldn’t make it to the fundraiser held Wednesday night at Verdi’s. Ed was held up in negotiation in Albany, but Cheers to the guys for their hard work.

Till next week,

-QP
