The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

NEWS DROUGHT

We are in day five of a news drought. This works out well because we recently attended a Trump rally and should be out of the hospital soon. We have been prescribed two Ben Carson speeches prn and are resting well.

In the meantime, political correctness has struck again. The Troy City Council (ie. Carmella Mantello) has appointed Troy's first female marshal. In fact, all of the Council's appointments have been female or female adjacent. This is just another slap in the face to men.

We are not suggesting that Sara McDermott isn't qualified:

I’ve always had a fascination with law enforcement,” McDermott said. “I have always been intrigued by forensic shows like ‘Law and Order,’ and I had thought about taking the test for correction officers, then this opportunity came up."

Not Homicide. Not NYPD Blue. Law and Order? She probably can't even name Frank Furillo's first wife. She probably can't name five Tommy Lee Jones movies. Has she seen Cool Hand Luke? Does anyone see the disturbing pattern in local government since they took over? We all know the main qualification for Carmella's appointments: no penis. How long will white, Christian males be kept under the heel of female oppression? This is not the America we know and love.

McDermott was welcomed to the marshals by Marshal Rick Mason. “Nobody has any respect for law enforcement anymore,” Mason said. “It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, eventually we are all thrown down a flight of stairs.”

McDermott thanked Mason and said she looked forward to being thrown down her first flight of stairs. "Just like Briscoe. I just hope it's not The Approach."

Good luck, Sara.

Rick Mason. Thrown down a flight of stairs. Now it all makes sense.

Equating being a city marshal with law enforcement is a stretch.

Mason "the job is very tough". Sometimes the number six slides upside down and you think it's a nine but it's not it a six. It's worse when it happens on the ninety floor and you have to run outside and count the floors. You know they all look the same.

She is known as the Chuck Norris of the marshals around these parts

I find it ironic that candidates such as Trump and Carson seem to bother so many of my more liberal friends. However, the candidacy of a poorly-educated old socialist who could not even keep a menial job until he was accidentally elected to political office is ignored.

You know Phana didn't mean Hillary because he didn't mention dishonest.

I'm a Democrat and frankly I don't like any of the candidates. But Trump's a cartoon character. His bullying and vulgarity should be major turnoffs to anyone who cares about basic civility. Every female Republican I know can't stand him. He's the perfect candidate for the Angry White Male, and that's why he gets the press. No way he wins the general, though.

All four of the major candidates are seriously flawed. It's a bad year.

I guess I just find the national election more interesting than city marshals.

Phana, Trump and Carson do not bother knowledgeable liberals/Democrats, admittedly a small group. They are a godsend. The Republicans are going to field the one candidate that will lose to Clinton. The popular vote will be a landslide but the electoral college will be like 2012.

That's not fair to Carmella. Just because she was fired from the only private sector job she's had since God knows when, doesn't mean her string of politically appointed sinecures were menial. Plus, I doubt she's a socialist and she's certainly not being ignored.

Oh you mean Sanders? I'm not sure if I agree. He did get his BA from the University of Chicago, which is a terrible school. On the other hand, if he had been "accidentally" chosen in his first election, the three re-elections to Mayor, then the elections to the House and then Senate were probably on purpose.

The problem with Trump and Carson isn't their educational credentials, it's their politics. As 10:43 says Trump is a bully. Carson in fact has very impressive resume. It's only when he opens his mouth and says ridiculous things that liberals and lefties get upset.

Oh wait, you were just trolling and I fell for it? Crap.

"Frank Furillo"...excellent reference, dog breath!

It is apparent you are oblivious to how the process of higher education works. Transferring into UC is far easier than initial acceptance. Furthermore a BA in PolySci is the equivalent of Glorified Sandbox. I notice you said nothing about his pitiful job history. I guess you find a man who cannot even keep a menial job impressive.

I guess you were trying to sound intelligent, but we all see how that worked out.

Hillary's criminal past, shady business deals and constant flip flopping on major issues also seems to be largly ignored by the press and her blindly loyal supporters. They simply don't care!

Not really

Phan said: "Transferring into UC is far easier than initial acceptance." So what, he graduated and has worked hard in public service. He has helped Vermonters since the early 80s.

You are way off base and you appear uninformed.

Most Trump supporters would like to attend Trump University, if only they had gotten that G.E.D.
