I also looked for data on how the un-SAFE ACT has saved lives. Seems all I can find is how it has harmed law abiding citizens. I did find many where a legally armed citizen has save lives though. How can that be, didn't the liberals promise us that guns are always bad. Idiots like Cuomo should be impeached or recalled. Maybe his father could recall him and try for a decent human instead.

Hmmm cant seem to find any data on how many lives have been saved by the unsafe act. I say we canvas local folks and see how much the stock market has effected their lifestyle vs how much the high unemployment rate has hurt them?

To paraphrase Cuomo is a rat and the un-SAFE ACT kills. Obama has done nothing good and unemployment is still to high.

Cuomo isn't likely to sign on board with a conversion. Phil is accurate with all of the benefits, but add in the fact that the energy can be developed locally (Marcellus Shale deposits), and it can also provide the US with carbon reduction credits and it's a win all the way around. Not sure why western NYers would choose not to win here...

Think of it this way. What do we gain if National Grid wins? Cheaper electricity - maybe - but don't bet on it! Now, what do we gain if NRG wins? 300 jobs, tax revenue of $8.2 million per year and an investment of one-half BILLION DOLLARS. this isn't rocket science - what is the problem here?

Question 1: Who donated more to Cuomo's and downstaters' campaigns, NRG or National Grid?

Question 2: Who will win the re-power debate? (See question #1 for answer.)

Andy will remain mute until after a decision is made then if it goes National Grids way he will tell our area that it was the PSC's decision and he had no control in the matter. But if it goes NRG's way he will be here pounding on his chest and telling us how hard he fought for us! Just watch and see.

Da*n Joe how can anyone get that you are trying to scare people with a question. Is rumble that afraid of an inanimate object that the mere mention of the un-SAFE ACT makes him tremble. You make a good point with that question really. Maybe the State boys could answer it.

Could you please make some sort of sense out of your post,you obviously have your topics mixed up. I made mention of the(unsafe act) unfunded mandates and then asked a question and now you are referencing a completely different topic from a couple of weeks ago. I'm sorry but the connection escapes me and if that scares you I certainly apologize.

Tell us Captain how we should interpret this statement from you? " but once again, this newspaper is being deliberately misleading by not offering the slightest reason why it believes, or why the public should believe, this is true". I posted where you could find those answers but you would rather just attack John D. I know John and he does not deliberately mislead people. You have him mixed up with Obama!

again, you couldn't resist making another snide remark ("good mentor"). You seriously need help.

Since Turkey Day is near, I'll end with I'm thankful I don't have to deal with someone like you in my daily life. Amen.

You've proved once AGAIN that you're not worth the time or effort trying to discuss a difference of opinion (with respect to this newspaper's duty to its readers to support any given position it takes). Instead of sticking to the point, you avoid it. If you interpret this as a "personal attack" too, then all I can say is that's your problem.

you would have thought that Johnny would have tied the mayor and fire chief attending Cuomo's visit by not doing so apparently it wasn't important enough to mention

don't you think that if NRG had a chance of changing over to natural gas the PSC would have made an indication of such? Western New York is not a priority for Cuomo haven't you figured out that yet? Cheap electricity when converted to Natural Gas? In a pig eye. Who do you think is going to pay for the invested money? Santa Claus? We will just have to get used to the fact that we here in Western New York do not matter. It is time to man up and realize this. All the talking in the world will not get Cuomo or the PSC to move faster or to change their already made up minds. Besides there are a few more weeks till Christmas to get the news. So relax have a beer and watch the game.

First off your personal attack(you had a good mentor)on John D is what triggered my as you call it "snide" remark. Why is it you can't be civil and send a Email to John asking that very question,why attack the man Captain? You did say he is deliberately misleading did you not?

You just can't resist making snide comments, can you joe? I'm NOT asking to be led by the hand, ****head, I'm just asking for a simple straight answer, which is:

After investing the proposed $500M to convert the Dunkirk plant, how will NRG recoup this investment WITHOUT raising rates? To my knowledge, this specific answer has never been publicly disclosed. Such info may be contained in NRG's formal application to the PSC for permission to convert, but since NRG is relying on strong public support to help win approval, why isn't this major concern, of both the customers and the PSC, publicly addressed?

Captain-simply google "will NRG refuel of Dunkirk plant increase consumer costs" Lots of good reading although you will have to download a couple of things. I would think that the delivery of the natural gas as opposed to the coal would be a substantial savings just for starters. I really don't understand why John D has to lead people by the hand and when he doesn't he and the newspaper get vilified relentlessly!

lower rates would be good, but the regulation of transport/delivery of current is the elephant in the room, our bill is split 61% delivery/ 39% is actual electric consumed
