I was once a Republican, now an Independent
, but without hesitation I have to proclaim my allegiance, on the 9/11 funding issue, with local Democratic legislators, and this is why
A report released a year ago cited that an insect zoo in Florida, a bourbon festival in Illinois, a bean fest in Indiana and a kangaroo conservation center in Maryland were funded while Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge were not listed.
But, by the same token, I will NEVER become a Democrat because of gutter scraping crap like this (same article):
U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-Bayside) was also incensed about the lack of funding given to the Empire State.
“Al Qaeda hates us,” he said. “President Bush isn’t crazy about us, either.”
