August 05, 2011 11:43:54 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com I guess it is time for another DISCLAIMER! This admittedly "unofficial" site has no endorsement from nor connection to the Town of Masonville! I brought this board into being way before we had the official TOM site. Problems quickly arose on the message board. People posted inappropriate comments and indulged in name-calling. Of course, that is the danger of running an open forum; some will post inappropriate and often insulting comments, and then run away, seemingly protected by their anonyminity. This is much like a little kid throwing a rock through a window, then running away, giggling, thinking to never being found out. Be careful! We have ways of finding you! Don't spoil it for the rest of us who enjoy having a way to voice our opinions and/or have questions answered. That was/is my intent on providing this venue. I once shut it down for a while because of precisely the same problem: Immature, childlike behaviour, like spraying graffitti and running away! This is why we are asking posters to provide a name (a real one?) and a valid email address. I would hate to make this mandatory for posting as I would not like to discourage posters, but this step has been suggested to me at the TOM council meeting on Wednesday. Well, folks, can we self-police?
August 05, 2011 10:50:44 wishy washy reader.   I would much rather go the the "official" website but it never seems to be updated. I get tired of some of the comments on this site. We all have a difference of opion and I don't like people bashing each ohter.
August 04, 2011 21:24:59 bertimouse   LOL we 'aint responding to such nonsense! Had a good laugh though; thanks for that. :)-Didn't we say Nuff Said Already? Guess yall just HAVE TO HAVE the last word in here, eh? Ha Ha. We're still LOL! :)
August 04, 2011 17:42:47 Kathy Lent klent@buttsconcrete.com The "OFFICIAL" Masonville website is quite informative and interesting also. It is worth taking a look at for those who may wish to learn more about the history of Masonville.
August 04, 2011 17:10:45 MV Part timer   Down 513 points,in 1 day.is it time for a Revolution yet? maybe some of us will not see it , but it will happen.remember that.
August 04, 2011 09:06:15 NYGAY   NOBAMA in 12
August 04, 2011 07:55:35 what?   G.W. Bush made a mistake of getting into wars we couldn't afford. Obama blasted him for this when he campaigned. what? has Obama done about this? Obama expanded the wars,spent billions more and started TWO more wars! These four wars of Obama's are still unfunded. Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya. Three going on four years Obama has upped the ante and added TRILLIONS of dollars to the deficit. Obama smart, he honors our servicemen by mispronouncing Navy Corpsman on not one but THREE occasions "corpse-man."
August 04, 2011 07:37:07 what?   bertimouse, have you read history or are you still getting your news from Saturday Night Live? bertimouse you wrote that G.W. Bush was the MOST DRUG-ADDLED, WORST PUBLIC SPEAKING; MOST ILL-ADVISED PRESIDENT E-V-E-R IN OUR U.S. HISTORY! Any Student of 20th Century Presidential History would recognize this. Your WRONG.Your writing about Obama! Read Obama's self-biography where he himself admits he was a cocaine addict! Worst public speaker? That goes to Obama too. Obama is lost without his teleprompter telling him what to say,and depending who loaded the tape Obama contradicts himself. When his teleprompter quits count how many times Obama says "UHH, UHHH, HUM UH,, can we get this uh, thing fixed." When Bill Clinton's teleprompter quit he went on and on without missing a beat. Obama is lost.
August 04, 2011 01:56:34 crzyflea   And for those of you who are thumping your bibles and quoting your gospels - does not your Jesus forgive all things? Or is that just a convenient blanket for those who agree with you and not those who are made differently? Can you not love your neighbor as yourself for who they are, knowing that in the eyes of the Holy they are made perfectly just as are you yourself? Being G a y or les bi an or bi se xual is not a choice. It is how one is born. If God does not love all of His or Her(nods to the pagans) children then why are we not all cookie cutter identical models of one another?
August 04, 2011 01:40:34 crzyflea   MV resident - sadly, even if the laws are there a clergy person has the right to refuse. If you aren't dead set on it being in the MV church, and would be happy with it just being somewhere in MV I'm sure you'll find someone capable of, and willing to, performing the ceremony for you. As a friend of mine once said, "A church is a roof made by man to keep the rain off while he prays; and rain is a blessing from above. The true temple lays all around us and our hearts is where bides God's love." So even if the building on the corner by the blinking red light turns you down not all backs are turned against you. We are all brothers and sisters - lest some people forget that.
August 04, 2011 01:16:20 bertimouse   Our Current President & the First Wave of DEMS that kicked your bts the first election BTW; had WAY TOO MUCH SPIT inherited from the last DUMB-A that yall elected the LAST TIME. Yall messed things up, then we get in to try & make things better for everyone; then you say that we are the ones screwing things up again; & so it goes & goes & goes. The Republicans are the ones that almost WRECKED this Whole Country & The Entire World Economy Over Their STUPID LOCAL POLITICS This Week & NO ONE is Going To Forget About That No Matter WHAT. Nuff Said.
August 04, 2011 01:04:43 bertimouse   Dear G.W.Bush spent us INTO THE GROUND. He went into his first term of Presidency with a SURPLUS. What did he do with it? Did he choose to re-invest it into Social Security like the Dems wanted him to do at the time? NO. Did he address the Health Care Medicaid issue seriously at all? NO. He chose to GIVE EVERYONE IN AMERICA A $300 CHECK NOT 1X BUT 2X! He chose to Lower the Standards for Oil Drilling. He Promoted lowering the Standards for the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and Promoted the Transfer of THOUSANDS of Acres of Protected Federal Lands out West to be the Property of Big-Business Speculators For Oil and/or Gas Speculation. G.W.Bush was THE DUMBEST, MOST EM-BARE-*CENSORED*-ING TO THE REST OF THE WORLD; MOST DRUG-ADDLED, WORST PUBLIC SPEAKING; MOST ILL-ADVISED PRESIDENT E-V-E-R IN OUR U.S. HISTORY! Any Student of 20th Century Presidential History would recognize this.
August 04, 2011 00:41:43 what?   bertimouse;"He Spoke & Gave Speeches Like a Total A-HOLE which Embarrassed us as a Country;" Yes Obama did on his apology tour where he explained to the rest of the world that he was sorry because Americans are a bunch of A-HOLE's.. In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors. The president apologized to the French for our arrogance and dismissiveness as the rest of us wondered whether he had lost all sense of irony. Then he hit Latin American where he sat through Nicaraguan President Danielle Ortega's(Who HATES America) 50-minute diatribe against the United States and issued even more meek apologies.And that was right before he enjoyed some quality time with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez (Who HATES America)and even took home some good ANTI-American reading. bertimouse, try reading some history instead of watching Saturday Night Live for your 'facts'!
August 04, 2011 00:33:13 bertimouse   Yah Right. Keep Trying to Spin it your way you Red Reps., any way you think you can. -In the End? Yall will NEVER WIN OVER ANY MORE VOTES [probably Less] because of what you & yours have done & caused now. GEE THANKS ALLOT FOR THAT...NOT! -Did we mention that Yall have such short memories & like to BLAME EVERYONE ELSE for your own FIRST mistakes that caused this Lousy Economy to begin with?
August 04, 2011 00:25:24 what?   Democrats= Borrow more! Spend more! Tax more!=DISASTER!
August 04, 2011 00:21:26 what?   bertimouse, why do we have to live in the past. If this country keeps saying,'But he did it', where are we going to be in the future? It is embarrassing to live in a country that has to rely on loans to pay our bills. Ten or twenty years from now I pray we don't say this use to be a great country, I pray America runs like the average American runs it's house,with in its means! And we will STILL be a great country! A great country doesn't owe a communist third world country that doesn't believe in its laws or morals more money than it can pay back.
August 04, 2011 00:06:18 what?   Funding and corrupting elections?We need to remove the money from our election system.From NBC news \"Obama\'s will be the first Presidential re-election campaign not run out of Washington DC.They will be based in Chicago.This will put his campaign closer to the wealthy donors who have been vital to promoting Obama\'s career since he was a state senator.Obama is planning on raising a billion dollars for his 2012 re-election,that\'s $1,000,000,000.\"Must be the half a billion he spent last time wasn\'t enough.The Democrat nominee Obama,and the Republican nominee Mccain both agreed to run under campaign finance reform,to spend a max $80 million.The Republican kept his promise.The Democrat spent $80 million in just the month of sept. and spent over $500 million on the campaign!Just one of Obama\'s many lies.
August 04, 2011 00:03:29 what?   [i.e. Experience in Governing?] What may I ask was the experience of our Pres. Obama? Not much past community organizer! Besides a short term as senator. Less than two years after being elected to the US Senate, he started an exploratory committee to run for President,he spent the majority of his term as US senator spending a record half a billion dollars to buy the Presidency!Obama spent a record OVER a half BILLION dollars MORE than the republican party did on his last campaign,and plans to spend whole BILLION on 2012! Fact, G.W. Bush; democrat controlled senate and house. Fact, B.H.Obama; democrat controlled senate and presidency. Fact; Democrats in majority for BOTH presidencies. The DEMOCRATS have been in control of for going on TWELVE years. Time for some real 'Hope And Change'.
August 03, 2011 23:19:25 bertimouse   Don't Get Us Started on How The LAST DEM PRESIDENT HAD A SUCH A BIG BUDGET SURPLUS! -OH HOW REPUBLICANS HAVE SUCH A SHORT MEMORY! [Before the Republican President G.w.BUSH Jr.[x-drug-addict,btw] was elected]& WHAT THE NEW REPUBLICANS HELPED HIM DO TO SPEND ALL THE SURPLUS! -HOW our Rep. President SAT TELLING STORIES to Children while People were DYING during 9/11 was TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. His "WATCH" during his Entire Presidency was totally Reprehensible because Not Only that He Spoke & Gave Speeches Like a Total A-HOLE which Embarrassed us as a Country; HE IS THE ONE who Promoted SPENDING ALL of the Our Countries Surplus Funds, Yall. It's really the Reps, not the Dems that want to spend all the money. The Reps always want to spend it on the wealthy Folks that Vote for 'em. The Dems always want to spend it on the Poor. Anyone That Tells You Anything Different Than This? -They're basically Lying.
August 03, 2011 22:50:14 Bertimouse   Oh Please Lollipop, Lollipop Oh Lolli-Lolli-Pop! Our Democratic President brought this Issue up WEEKS AGO. The Newest REPUBLICANS brought this all to a Freaking Publicity Stunt To The WORLD! -Not Good Folks. It's all fine & Good to be involved in Politics but in THIS COUNTRY ONE WOULD THINK that those that are ELECTED HAVE A CLUE FIRST, [i.e. Experience in Governing?] BEFORE ALL YALL GO OUT & VOTE NEXT TIME FOR YOUR SENATORS & CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN? PLEASE!!! We here Pray For The Wisdom Of All Voting Folks Soon.
August 03, 2011 21:19:40 CC   TX: NOT IN Tioga, Tioga is too close, I will be in Califorina ! and yes, I am a Proud Hunter which I Paid the State of NY Lots of $$$$$$$$$$$. just to hunt legal. we shall boy cut buying the require licences this year and hunt with out it,and risk getting fined. theres no DEC out in MV's State's Forest.
August 03, 2011 17:31:21 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com CENSORED! No, I did not just curse, I actually spelled out CENSORED. I apologize for the seemingly overeager message censor program which is running this message board. It is part of a commercial package used by BearPaws Webworks, whom I have hired to run this board and who are paid by me annually. I too have run afoul of overeager censor programs. I object, because sometimes it stops you from expressing yourself properly. Once I was explaining the actions necessary of deploying and firing one of my six-guns. It wouldn't let me describe the act of drawing back the hammer; you know: c ocking the weapon! It is unfortunate that we must resort to such subterfuge to deceive our own message board, but just bear with it. Try to avoid terms which our prudish system may misunderstand!
August 02, 2011 17:33:57 NYGAY   When will the next parade take place? in 200 years maybe.
August 01, 2011 16:41:36 TX   You got it,thats the way this guy is,I saw him out-run a Coyote.LOL LOL.and he says he is a hunter!!!
August 01, 2011 15:30:23 Observer   TX LOL Like the two guys being chased by a bear. One said, "We cannot outrun that bear." The other guys replies, "I don't have to outrun the bear. I have to outrun you!!"
August 01, 2011 15:25:35 TX   Do you think CC will hold the Bear and call you? by the time he sees the Bear he will be in Tioga and not looking back,I know this guy very well.
August 01, 2011 09:50:42 Observer   CC- Next time that bear comes around will you hold him and give me a call? I have been trying to get a picture of him with no success. LOL
August 01, 2011 09:48:46 CC   kathy : This bear is the Shear Rd Bear. My Property is off Shear Rd. This Bear Paw Prints are 6\"-7\" wide Anyone know whats the Estimate Size of this bear.?? Kathy: am checking with progressive for coverages,. Thanks,.
August 01, 2011 09:29:49 Observer   Bertimouse you make less and less sense as the posts go on. I suggest a good reading of God's Word. Perhaps it will help clear up the issue of sin. No where did I indicate I attend the Town of Masonville Church. I do not. My Church's Pastor has only one church. I know what he and my church stand for. I have nothing at all against homosexuals. I do have a problem with the sin of homosexuality. I have a bigger problem with the State of New York shoving an unwanted law down our throats.
August 01, 2011 08:12:25 Kathy   CC: If you have comprehensive coverage on your vehicle, it might apply. Call your company. I found this on the web: "Animals: Comprehensive coverage helps pay for damage caused by striking an animal with your car. Additionally, if a bird flies into your vehicle or an animal causes damage while the car is parked, this coverage may apply." Keep that bear to the west side of the valley!
August 01, 2011 07:23:13 CC   The Masonville Evil Bear, Had just attempt to open my Truck. He/she have left scratch marks and in print of his/her paws. on the dusty windows. There was nothing in the truck but a filled price chopper pancake syrup which fallen of the shopping bag and failed to go in side the house ! Can they smell a closed bottle of pancake sryup in a truck ??? Now, i wonder Progressive Car insurance Covers Bear's Claw Scrathes ?? Please Advise.. Thanks,.
August 01, 2011 02:33:13 what?   The Democrats have suggested that we could just raise taxes on the richest Americans.The top 1 percent of income earners in the US already pays 40 percent of our country’s taxes.The top 1 percent currently pays more in taxes than the bottom 90 percent combined. The Dems want to go to %70 tax on those making over $250,000, the taxpayer keeps $75,000 and the govt. gets to squander $175,000,what?...It is a recipe for disaster.Gas prices go up,sales went down.Hunting licenses went up,sales went down,the state lost money.Tobacco taxes went up,the state lost billions.Who would work extra hard to make that extra hundred when you only get to keep 30?
August 01, 2011 02:08:56 what?   bertimouse- the Dems do not want to balance the budget,thats the problem,why would Republicans negotiate when the Dems are unwilling to budge, they are AGAINST a balanced budget amendment. The Dems just want to borrow more money from China, increase the debt ceiling and increase our deficit. America is at risk for losing its AAA credit rating. Does America deserve a AAA credit rating when it has to borrow money to pay on its loans? The Dems want new credit cards to pay the bills.
August 01, 2011 01:59:36 what?   Cuomo should have left it alone, causing all sorts of problems across the state even on this site. Better check your facts bertimouse. According to PRIDE Institute LGBT people (*CENSORED*, *CENSORED*, bisexual, and transgender) "Studies indicate that, when compared with the mainstream (heterosexual) population, LGBT people are more likely to use drugs, have higher rates of substance abuse, and are more likely to continue drug abuse into later life."
July 31, 2011 23:44:56 bertimouse   Oh What, The Word G-A-Y is censored now?
July 31, 2011 23:42:37 bertimouse   We Defend *CENSORED* RIGHTS FOR THESE REASONS: We will try to be Humorous here, First: 1)*CENSORED* guys make the Best companions for wives that have husbands who are truck-drivers;to keep'em company ! 2)*CENSORED* guys are great designers & landscapers. 3)*CENSORED* guys don't drink allot. 4)*CENSORED* guys don't take drugs, 96% of the time. 5)*CENSORED* guys will Love to go shopping with your wife. 6)*CENSORED* guys are 90% Mellow & will not "get in your face!" 7)*CENSORED* guys will never tell you that they're *CENSORED*. 8)*CENSORED* guys are more Democrats than Republicans though statistically more are Independents now. 9)Statistically, there are more *CENSORED* Guys in NY than California's San Francisco now. 10)5-10 Years From Now, *CENSORED* Couples Being Married will be the Norm & 20 yrs. from now we'll all be wondering what all that Fuss was about; because of the obvious reasons which will make themselves become apparent when God Chooses For Us All. Our God Takes Care Of Us All Here, Observer. We've got NO RIGHT to check anyone else out, you know? This Is God's Job, You Know? -Thanks.
July 31, 2011 23:00:54 Bertimouse   Observer: You know, reading over & over your posts here on this bulletin board; we just ask ourselves one question: How Would Jesus Have Welcomed in person & What would He have said to "MV Resident"? -Observer; Jesus Loves ALL OF HIS CHILDREN! If the/your TOM Local Church doesn't believe in that[i.e.What would Jesus Have Done]then that's why y'all don't bring in more Folks when the Bell Rings every Sunday Morning at 10:30 a.m. -Y'all have NO RIGHT to speak for GOD or JESUS! NO ONE on this poor earth has the right.
July 31, 2011 22:37:15 bertimouse   Observer; How Do You Know that the Majority of your Church believes what you do? Did you know that your Preacher has several other churches that He visits & Preaches at? Have you been to his other churches? -That's what we've heard anyway. -Just spreading more local rumors here because Frankly it's so much Fun; isn't it Observer? -Keeps everyone's minds off the serious spit like balancing the National Budget in 2 FREAKING DAYS. We Blame All You New Republicans For That. The Older Reps know how to Negotiate with the Dems. Either Way God Help Us All. Nuff Said. PL&H Yall. p.s Observer; sorry we called you an Ahole our 2nd to last post.
July 29, 2011 17:52:20 Masonville Resident   finally, the rain we have so long been in need of. Now maybe the lawns and gardens can start growing again.
July 29, 2011 10:42:19 Observer   Why would anyone suggest that a church would go behind the backs of the people it serves to do something? I sure would leave any church that did such a thing. My church is democratic in government. In my wildest imagination I cannot imagine my church sneaking behind the back of the members or the community it serves to do something that the majority of the members were not in agreement with.
July 28, 2011 22:30:04 Bertimouse   Observer: "Have opinions that legitimate?" What? we've not lectured, always welcomed different NON-RANTING nor insulting opinions for discussion here. You just can't discuss stuff without insulting Folks not like you. We understand about your Pain & pray for your understanding, health, happiness & Peace with Others in this World someday soon. Our "prowess" with the TOM Board really has nothing to do with you or your issues Sir, sorry. We here in our humble household try to Focus on The Big Pictures which affect us ALL. Forgive us for getting snared into your currently nasty little Lair of Stupid-Go-Nowhere-discussions once again. Our Apologies to All Here for That! Hope Everyone has a GREAT WEEKEND! :)
July 28, 2011 22:09:15 bertimouse   MV Resident: It may have been wiser to not post it here. Now the whole Town knows about it. The Church may have worked with you had you not broadcasted it here, you know? Our best advice would be to start over quietly down in Sidney or Franklin would probably be your best bet for your wishes there. Hope this helps.
July 28, 2011 17:57:37 Observer   MV Resident -- I would not hold my breath waiting for the church in MV to agree to a q u e e r marriage. While I cannot speak for them; from what I know of them they will not be allowing q u e e r s to marry in the church very soon. As to getting legal? It has always been the law in NYS, and still is, that a church or clergy can accept or reject whom ever they desire for marriage ceremonies. Just because you are a q u e e r does not give you any special consideration or privilege when it comes to marriage ceremonies.
July 28, 2011 09:54:14 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Say, Observer, you seem to like to keep up to date with stuff, judging from your reports of that fire and the plane crash. WCDO in Sidney carried those news items, but if you choose not to listen to that station, those news items are almost instantly available with your computer. WCDOradio.com is a user friendly site and quite informative.
July 28, 2011 09:17:32 Clergyman   You are in for a disappointment. NO church or clergyman has to perform a marriage ceremony for anyone. This is true now and has always been true. I cannot speak for the church in Masonville but no church is obligated.
July 28, 2011 09:14:17 Les   Sounds like a good idea!The days are already getting shorter.
July 28, 2011 08:43:12 needed by all   lets all go outside and enjoy the weather and forget about message boards today and it may clear all of our minds and we will forget a lot of these messages.
July 28, 2011 08:19:30 MV Resident   I went to the MV Church and tried to ask for a wedding for me and my BF. but they havent give me a answer yet . Hope they make their minds up. if not am going to get legal on this, because we are G A Y and we now have the right to get marry in MV. So, I will be the first G A Y marraige in MV !
July 27, 2011 17:25:48 Les   I don't know if they like picnic baskets like 'Yogi' but they have been reported to like bird feeders and garbage cans. The plane crash was near Sidney,the only person in the plane was the pilot,only minor injuries according to WBNG.
July 27, 2011 14:26:37 Observer   Busy day for Emergency services. Now a plane crash on some island in Delaware County. Did not catch the town.
July 27, 2011 14:18:50 Observer   Les are they like Yogi Bear? "Smarter than the average bear" ?
July 27, 2011 14:02:40 Observer   Just heard on the scanner a structure fire on Pine Hill Road. Sure pray it is not someones house!!
July 27, 2011 13:50:45 Les   Just seen this on the news!A mountain lion killed on a Connecticut highway last month had apparently walked halfway across the country from South Dakota, according to Connecticut environmental officials who said Tuesday that the journey of roughly 2,000 miles was one of the longest ever recorded for a land mammal.The 140 pound male was hit in the road by a sport utility vehicle.Maybe there is some Mountain Lions in Masonville!
July 27, 2011 13:32:00 Les   Mountain lions? Some say they are here, but not ever proven just stories.I have seen many Bobcat tracks on state land following snowshoe hare. When the sun melts the snow a little the tracks expand, or given a little time they will become larger in mud too. By the way the shear road bear isn't the only large one in Masonville.Being these bears are still around it goes to show just how smart they are.
July 27, 2011 13:20:49 CC   I know it is rare for the area,but I measured the paw mark and that was the size.also rare are mountain lions in the area and i saw a few tracks by Shears
July 27, 2011 12:09:44 Observer   CC that size black bear is fairly rare. I have seen several around here over the years but never one that size. He really is bragging stock for our area! Hopefully one day I will luck out and get a chance to get a picture of him. I would put a trail camera in that area but I think probably it would get stolen about as fast as I put it up. Unfortunately the years and health have taken their toll on me and I am no longer able to get out and wander the trails looking for such things.
July 27, 2011 11:43:58 CC   OH he is BIG,I will bet that he is around 650/725. On early Spring I saw his tracks by my place,it measured 6.5 inches from side to side,on real fresh tracks
July 27, 2011 11:11:12 Observer   CC no I have not seen it. And I am jealous!! I drive up and down that area with several cameras and have yet to see him.
July 27, 2011 11:03:19 CC   WOW!!It is hot here,changing the subjet,has anyone seen the Evil Bear of Masonville? Saw a few weeks ago by the 4 corners on Shears road.
July 27, 2011 10:40:41 Observer   Bertimouse you are correct. We deeply respect our representatives both in Albany and DC. They certainly work to earn that respect. We need more men representing us like Spitzer, Wu, Weiner, Gov Sanford of S Carolina, Bill Clinton, John Edwards, The recent Gov of Illinois, the four republicans in the NY Senate who sold their votes to special interest groups for a $10,000 donation. Not to forget Bob Livingston, Newt Gingrich, Rudolf Giuliani, Mark Foley, Larry Craig, David Vitter, John Ensign and others too numerous to list. --- As to me not representing Masonville. Nowhere did I claim to as you do in almost every post you put on this board. --- Voting? I have probably voted more years than you have been on this earth. --- You, and others on this board, just do not want to accept that there just might be others who have opinions that legitimate. I dare wager you have absolutely NO idea how the same sex marriage act was pushed through the New York Senate, but you are able to lecture those who have a different opinion of the subject. And get off the pedestal. Masonville is NO different than any other place. Masonville has its good folks and its not so good folks. Masonville is NOT a corner of heaven tucked away for the "correct" people. Bertimouse you may call me all the names you want, I have a thick skin but keep in mind that doing so negates all your perceived intellectual prowess on this board. Bertimouse I have supported this town in ways you do not know about. I do not have to beat a drum and wave a flag to tell people about it as you seem to have to do.
July 27, 2011 09:45:26 Observer   Well, just maybe all you perfect folks of Masonville are correct. Maybe I should move on but I hate to leave such a nurturing environment. Other than its assorted thieves, drunks, druggies, child molesters, spouse abusers, fornicators, 3rd generation welfare cheats; Masonville is perfect. And besides I would miss the obvious intellectual stimulus of this board especially Bertimouse. :)
July 27, 2011 09:38:16 part time resident   good idea , the town meetings need a little excitement.
July 27, 2011 07:50:00 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Wow, a lot of volatile opinions and even tempers flaring. I think you should all attend the next TOM council meeting on 3 August and duke it out in the parking lot.
July 27, 2011 04:25:41 Masonville Resident   What? you're just as stupid as Observer
July 27, 2011 00:10:52 what?   Some people, sinners, are guilty of using religion only when it suits them.Hypocrites.Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.When God created a partner for Adam He created Eve - not another Adam.
July 26, 2011 23:33:22 bertimouse   This is America. This is the TOM. We stand up for ALL Free People under the Law of our Lands, voted by the People; For The People. We RESPECT OUR PRESIDENT, CONGRESS, SENATORS & LEGISLATORS: ALL VOTED BY WE, THE PEOPLE. If Y'all got a problem then why didn't you vote the last time? -Yah right; you didn't think it mattered? -Guess again my friends...EVERYONE NEEDS TO VOTE. If you didn't vote for anything then yall have NO RIGHT to speak here 'cause it just means NOTHING just like Observer's ranting, eh? NUFF SAID.
July 26, 2011 23:15:13 bertimouse   Hey Observer: Your a total AHole. You have no Clue about the real world right now. Sorry you are so stuck in the land of Never-Will-Be. You do NOT represent TOM in any way shape or Form, buddy. Just saying here that you are making allot of Folks Upset Here by preaching your own views which DO NOT Represent the Majority of Our Town. -So Tough Toe-Nails To You, Sir. Good For All The Rest Of Us To Know that: YOU SPEAK FOR ONLY YOUR SELF is all. And that is a good thing for all of us to Remember & TG for, eh?
July 26, 2011 23:02:21 what?   50 years from now we will have to have three public restrooms: Womens, Mens, and Undecided.
July 26, 2011 22:50:06 bertimouse   TO MV RESIDENT: YES & Go to the TOM Clerk. Contact Info is posted here. TG this is still the Land of The Free and The Brave in All Ways.
July 26, 2011 20:48:55 d i c k   observer why dont you just move away to were your beliefs are welcome
July 26, 2011 16:47:05 what?   G A Y; Cuomo and our govt. should have stayed out of the marriage business,it has caused anger across the state.G A Y writes "this town wants and invites g a y people to live here." I didn't see any rainbow sign anywhere,where have we been advertising for a g a y mecca? Masonville welcomes ALL people.G A Y writes; "so just get going before someone shows you the way." Sounds like you want everybody to respect your lifestyle but you are not willing to respect other peoples opinions.Masonville doesn't welcome threats.
July 26, 2011 16:33:36 what?   It is hard to believe but when put to a vote to the PEOPLE of California, a majority voted NO to same sex marriage.I believe we would see a similar result in NY if put to a vote,the United States IS a democracy and we should be aloud to vote.
July 26, 2011 16:29:03 what?   Define marriage. SEN. OBAMA: \"I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman.Now, for me as a Christian, it\'s also a sacred union. You know, God\'s in the mix.
July 26, 2011 13:37:30 G A Y   obsverer you just do not get it. you are not wanted on this bord or in this town. move on find a place that does want you. this town wants and invites *CENSORED* people to live here. so just get going before someone shows you the way.
July 26, 2011 13:16:31 Observer   Quite typical. When all else fails. Attack the person.
July 26, 2011 13:09:03 Tired Masonville Resident   Observer thinks this is his private platform to preach. Nobody cares what you think and stop wasting this boards space with your long tired boring posts. Go get your own life already and stop forcing your beliefs on us.
July 26, 2011 11:45:54 Observer   Thank you part time resident. Your statement demonstrates the apathy I speak of very well.
July 26, 2011 11:22:54 resident   I do not agree with much that Observer says in his post but I will agree that politicians can be strange. I attended a town board meeting a few months back and someone brought up the subject of prayer which was quickly dismissed. It is stange that the town board can accpet the hospitality of a church to hold their meetings but dismiss the very god they church represents.
July 26, 2011 11:11:19 part time resident   Masonville is a great place to live and raise our families, we just have to look the other way when we do not agree with some things. Best way to keep happy is to ignore what we disagree with and get on with our lives. Always think of the possitive things in our every day life and know that not all people are as lucky as we are.
July 26, 2011 10:30:53 Observer   The problems with this country can be summed up in one word. APATHY!. What if our founding fathers had of had the attitude most today have? Apathy breeds despots, dictators and bad politics. How do you think men like Hitler, etc gained the power they held? APATHY on the part of the people. How many actually know what their representatives in Albany or Washington "really" stand for? Or for the matter care? The attitude of "Oh well, I have my TV and Beer and nothing else matters" is a death knell for any society. When one speaks out against an injustice such as the recent "Same Sex Marriage Act" one is accused of being prejudiced, a hater or a closet q u e e r. I for one do not hate anyone. I may hate the sin of homosexuality but one should never approve of any sin against a Holy God. I dislike a bunch of politicians selling their souls to the highest bidder and passing a law that should have come before the voters of the State. I dislike the Governor of this state taking on the mantel of supreme leader and telling me I will accept and like something that is a slap in the face to God and to the family. I dislike a rich power broker entering the halls of our state government and promising large contributions to those who vote "his" way. I dislike politicians who sell their constituents down the river. The credibility of the United States is waning the eyes of the world. We have the worst drug problems in the world. We murder more unborn children than any place in the world. We allow sin to rule in the name of progress. We have one of the biggest crime rates in the world. Why? Apathy!!While the United States is the best country in the world to live in it is rapidly losing that status not only in the eyes of the world but in the eyes of thinking people right here at home. Is it too late to redeem this country? Optimistically I hope not. But we have to turn away from our selfish interests and look at what the Creator wants for this country. I am sure that the family unit is foremost in the eyes of God. The family from the beginning of time has been a man a woman and children. More and more we are seeing that institution under attack. Single parent families. Living together with marriage. Divorce at the drop of a hat. Now we are told that two people of the same sex getting "married" is normal and natural. Folks wake up and look around you before we find ourselves in a situation that none of us like.
July 26, 2011 01:04:39 Les   Three going on four years it has been Bush's fault,come on! After Obama's reign are they still going to say 'Bush's fault' 'I inherited this' Or are the Liberals going to take some responsibility and work on the problems? To date they haven't tried anything but borrowing from China and spending.
July 26, 2011 00:54:18 Les   *CENSORED* is getting crazy,Human writes; FREEDOM to create.Sorry Bubby no creation in homosexuality.Nuff said.
July 25, 2011 17:27:32 Human   MV Resident - I think I can. But how do I get a hold of you without spreading the \"love\" on here???
July 25, 2011 17:01:01 Observer   Apathy! The curse of culture and the downfall of society.
July 25, 2011 16:52:19 TX   Live and let Live or should i said Died
July 25, 2011 16:03:11 MV Resident   Am sorry, I live here in Masonville and Was Raised here in Masonville, and caught AIDS here in Masonville Now I want to get marry here in Masonville. Can any one help me please !!!!!!!!! I am begging for help.
July 25, 2011 15:04:00 Observer   I never realized how many "bleeding heart" liberals there are in Masonville! Must be the influence of all those downstaters LOL
July 25, 2011 14:58:25 resident of masonville   Hope everyone is enjoying the break from the hot weather and the rain is such a delight and very much needed.
July 25, 2011 14:25:42 Human   Observer - Oh just get over yourself and come out of the closest already!! The way you bitch about \"qu ee r\" people, you must be one in MAJOR denial!
July 25, 2011 14:10:58 Human   You know that place that your ancients came to because of FREEDOM to worship, FREEDOM from Oppression, FREEDOM from want, FREEDOM from fear, FREEDOM to create. So what if Man wants to marry Man, and Woman wants to marry Woman.. Good way to keep our population in check.. It's not like there is a hunting season on Humans.
July 25, 2011 13:57:05 Human   I thought we lived in America?? Way people act makes me wonder wtf happened here.
July 25, 2011 13:04:08 Observer   The last post on this board makes me wonder just how long it will be before the *CENSORED* start lawsuits against churches that refuse to solemnize their sinful unions? Yes, I know there is a conscience clause in the illegal law just passed it NYS but that will not be a determent to them.
July 25, 2011 12:45:36 MV RESIDENT   Does Any body know if the MV church cor of 206 & 8 will marry 2 same sex person. Now that NY pass the Law. Me and my BF would like to get marry in that chruch, then have the party at the all u can eat buffet in sindeny. ! Oh...... Also I would like to invited all my spanish friends on shear rd.
July 25, 2011 12:20:44 CC   At least they are doing something.
July 25, 2011 09:34:11 Observer   Yes, the Asian Longhorn beetle along with global warming was brought about by the Bush administration and the Democrats are working day and night to correct this problem.
July 25, 2011 01:01:10 Les   The purple boxes are to collect Asian Longhorn beetle or Emerald Ash Borer (they kill ash trees), for a survey and study on how to combat them.Research is ongoing in finding ways to stop emerald ash borers and what we can do about them.One way we can help is don’t move firewood.I believe a 50 mile radius for transport of firewood is recommended.It is believed that the invasive (not from this country with no natural predator or control) is also killing Maple trees.The emerald ash borer infestation causes as much damage as Dutch Elm Disease and the Chestnut Blight.Soon Ash trees that are used for firewood,baseball bats,guitar bodies,tool handles,etc will be endangered.
July 25, 2011 00:04:13 snowman   What are those purple triangle boxes hanging in the trees above the road does anyone know?
July 24, 2011 17:13:09 Observer   Well, Coumo and his qu ee r buddies in Albany may have crammed the qu ee r marriage act down the throats of the the people of New York State but that does not mean we have to like it or even recognize the so called legality of this farce. Qu ee r Ryan the mayor of Binghamton my be cheering his part in it but it does not make him anything but what he is. A wart on the *CENSORED* of society.
July 24, 2011 09:36:02 The Bicentennial Committee   I would like to take this time to thank everyone for all that was done to make the bicentennial a huge success. Many old friends were united after may years and a lot of stories were shared. Many people worked hard from the set up of activities to the time all was cleaned up and put away. Thank you again.
July 23, 2011 20:11:17 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com ABOUT NAMMY! Niece Namkyung made a lot of friends in Masonville and Sidney while she stayed with us.
