Wasn’t trying to be a smartyass. Just being thorough. It’s my back yard. :-)

@JHC (The English Patient)
“The problems Americans have in general (not all) is that you are all too insular. I doubt many of you would go and read comments on a site like crooks and liars, for example”.
Crooks and Liars. Crooks and Liars,…. Any relation to Parliament and the Windsors? (just kidding) :-) I like the Windsors. They’re fun! Silly Windsors. :-D
You’ve got some nerve pal. Your arrogance is your country’s chief export. You talk about being Insular? You’re an island for “Christ’s” sake! And in many ways (almost all actually) still as provincial as ever. I know about Crooks and Liars. So what? What is that site gonna tell me that I don’t already know? What’s your point? Do you even HAVE a point? Or is this just more of the same snotty English posturing you guys are so famous for? Booooring!

Bitter, yeah, you could say that. Especially after all the crap I’ve taken for it. But I’ll just have to get a new one I guess.
I still think you’re an interloper though. And I just can’t stand the smug, arrogant way in which you Brits pretentiously sway and swagger about. I lived in London 20 years ago (had to because of my old job) and I COULD NOT WAIT to get back home. Btw, I’m Irish. So I guess you could say I have a bit of a problem with you “Proper Englishmen”. Oh,…. wait,…. I’m throwing up again. Ugh!
Yeah, I guess you could say I don’t care for your kind very much. Old enemies die a slow death I guess. But enough of that.
You enjoy yourself. And keep posting. Don’t be a stranger. As long as you’ve joined the conversation, stay in it. I’ll find you. Under a different name of course. But you’ll know it’s me. }:-)

Though we have/had our differences and some spirited volleys, I must say that I learned a lot from you and I am very, very sorry to hear of your layoff. No matter what side you’re on, that is a lousy break. I’ve been out of work for close to 2 years now so I know what it feels like. I’m really sorry.
But don’t give up. Keep on truckin’ my friend. (And I do consider you a friend).
Peace be with you.

Actually New Rochelle is 3 towns away from Rye and there are 2 rivers that separate the towns. One of them runs along the border of Rye and meets up with the Mamaroneck river. Both empty into Mamaroneck Harbor. They are very small rivers, easily overlooked on a map, but there nonetheless.

Now there’s a thought!
Religion on state property. Maybe they could attach a steeple and rededicate the building and call it, “The First Church of Christ The Bureaucrat”. Hey, I’m liking this! We’d be funded with tax dollars,… and be tax exempt at the same time. Brilliant! :-D

I’m surprised nobody mentioned the sign directly above the plaque.
This is a Government building containing Government offices staffed by Government workers doing Government business. This is NOT a church. It is NOT a religious institution. I don’t receive communion at town hall just as don’t buy a dog license from a priest. But someone sees fit to instal a plaque at the entrance to town hall proclaiming a religious association to my local Government,… along with warning.
“Obey these 10 commandments,… because we’re watching you”.
Nope. I see no problem here. :-/
I was wondering when you were going to weigh in with your typical tripe.Here's some perspective for you to absorb into your le petit cerveau.
This town only has 704 individuals to include les infants.
They are a mountain town.
Who complained? Who?
FFRF are Atheists with an anarchist agenda. You should not use your phony bologna to defend
their monstrueux deeds!

@J.H.Christ the Interloper,
“Can’t have it both ways”
Is that so? You seem to enjoy “having it both ways”.
In one post you say, “I live here, there is no going home “. In another post you say, “I live in England”. So which is it? Are you a citizen of the U.S.? Or are you a guest enjoying all that America has to offer while taking advantage of the opportunity to criticize Americans for being Americans?
It’s one thing to be an American and exercise your rights in your own country. It’s something entirely different to come to America, enjoy it’s freedoms and opportunities and then have the balls to criticize the American way of life because it “Offends” your English sensibilities.
You Brits really crack me up! We Americans bail your sorry asses out of two world wars and you want to tell us how to behave. America is far from perfect, but the last thing we need is advice from the Brits on how to run things. That’s why FREE MEN who believe in liberty and freedom from oppression said F YOU to British rule and started our own nation. If you don’t like America, don’t live here. Otherwise, enjoy your stay and shut the hell up. You are a guest. Behave accordingly.
February 9, 2012 at 11:50am
I’ll be Damned if I’m going to listen to a Brit lecture me about the ways of the world. Your country has a history of being one of the most oppressive societies EVER. The British Empire is responsible for genocidal atrocities world wide all in the name of God and the Queen. I’m gonna throw up any second now. Your hypocrisy is nauseating.

@JESUS.H.CHRIST (The Impostor)
Couldn’t you have exercised a little bit more originality in choosing a screen name? I mean, it’s a very good name, but it’s taken already. The minor typographical error unfortunately could not be changed, otherwise I would have. But you show no originality by choosing to steal my name away from me. I hope you know that you are going to make even more enemies here than I have. I being one of them. Not solely because you are a sneak-thieving interloper, but because you appear to be one of those smug imports that enjoys the rights and privileges of true Americans and feel entitled to rub our noses in it. I don’t care that you may share many of the same views and opinions as I. If you have to steal my name, then you show yourself to be , I believe the word is, WANKER.
You sir, have no credibility as far as I’m concerned.

Until it comes to paying taxes that is.

“Whatever happened to separation of church and state”?
The church doesn’t believe in separation. :-)

FDR gets the credit for that one.
I like this one though:
“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”
