Bazzo Says: The Real Economic Danger

Bazzo Says:
BY ANTHONY J. BAZZO

OF YORKTOWN NEWS & MAHOPAC NEWS

Before we get into the main topic of this week’s column, I present to you: “Idiots Among Us.” Because my day job is driving a taxi cab, most of these idiots I mention below are (somehow) licensed drivers. Here are just a few I cross paths with on a daily basis:
 
• Drivers who know there is not enough room to make it to the other side of the light; however, they do not want to get caught at the red light, so they block the intersection hoping against hope that the car in front will move. You see this every day at the intersection of Route 6 and Mohegan Avenue.
 
• People who double park on the street and run into the store for “only a minute,” even though they are on a two lane road with no shoulder.
 
• People who use “handicapped” spaces without the sticker.
• Drivers who stop in the middle of the road to have a conversation with a pedestrian walking.
 
• Drivers who want to make a turn at an intersection while you are going straight and cut you off even though you have the right of way, then give you the finger.
 
• People who do to public restrooms what they would never do to their bathroom, one would hope.
 
• Cyclists who pass on the right even though the driver in front has their right blinker on.
 
• People who walk on the street at night in dark clothing, even if there are sidewalks. 
 
These people are allowed to re-produce and vote. Scary.
 
From the Labor Department this month
 
• Median household income: $57,342 in 2000, $57,263 in 2016
 
• There are now 144,592 million jobs. That is 5.9 million more jobs than 2008 (Bush 43’s last year). However, it also means we have produced less than one million jobs per year over the last eight years. We need, according to the Labor Department, 1.8 million jobs a year to employ all those people who enter the work force for the first time.
 
• Labor force participation rate: 65.7 percent in 2009, 62.6 percent in 2016. This means there are 14,179,000 more people not in the work force now than when Obama’s economic policies were enacted with an all Democrat Congress and Senate. This equals a 15 percent increase.
 
• Student loan debt has grown 70 percent to $1.2 trillion since Obama and his Democrat Congress took nationalized student loans.

• Gross Domestic Product: -2.8 percent in 2009, 2.5 percent in 2010, 1.6 percent in 2011, 2.2 percent in 2012, 1.5 percent in 2013, 2.4 percent in 2014 and 2.4 percent in 2015. Fact: President Obama is the first President EVER not to preside over an annual GDP of 3 percent or better. The first!
 
• Real unemployment, the U6 number, which includes the underemployed and people who have stopped looking for work after 6 months: 20 percent in 2009, 23 percent in 2016 (See: Labor work force participation).
 
• Also, food stamps, because we are importing low-skilled workers at an alarming rate, has doubled to 51 million people since 2009. Health care costs have quadrupled since Obamacare was enacted. The federal deficit stands at $19 trillion. It was $9 trillion when Obama was elected and he said when running that this was a crime.
 
Hillary, Schumer, Lowey and Maloney have either voted for the policies that have caused this or are fully supporting of those policies. In fact, Hillary is promising to double down on them. She says Obama has not gone far enough.
 
You can see for yourself, with the government’s own figures, a Democrat-controlled bureaucracy, that the national Democrat party has done more damage to our country than they tell you voting for Trump would. This is why they want you to focus on the Second Amendment (gun control), the First Amendment (Citizens United), climate change and making disagreement a criminal offense, and bathrooms and locker rooms as the “new” civil right. They are the real proven danger, not Donald Trump.
 
This is what I say. What say you?

June 28, 2016

"Congratulations to Phil Oliva on his victory tonight. Phil is exactly the kind of principled leader we need in Washington. He has the plan to put people back to work and will do what's necessary to destroy ISIS and protect us from terrorism. The Clinton-Maloney-Pelosi agenda is wrong for the Hudson Valley and we look forward to Phil becoming the next congressman from New York's 18th congressional district."

Statement from Chairman Cox on Primary Election Results in NY-22

June 28, 2016

"We congratulate Claudia Tenney on winning the Republican nomination to replace Congressman Hanna. Claudia has been a true fighter for reform in the state legislature and she will take that same spirit to Washington where she will shake up the status quo and do what's needed to get our nation back on track. We know that the voters of the 22nd congressional district will want a leader with the solid Republican principles of a safe America, low taxes and a growing economy."

Statement from Chairman Cox on Primary Election Results in NY-19

June 28, 2016

"Tonight voters took the first step in ensuring they continue to have outstanding leadership in Congress with their election of John Faso as the Republican nominee. John's rock-solid record of fighting for low taxes and a strong economy will be a stark contrast to the dangerous ultra-liberal, job-killing policies of Zephyr Teachout. John will build upon the great work of Congressman Gibson, and we congratulate him on tonight's resounding victory."

June 28, 2016

"Democrats in NY-3 had to take Tom Suozzi out of the dustbin of politics in an embarrassing attempt to hold onto a seat they see slipping through their fingers. Now that the general election season has begun, we look forward to Jack Martins giving Tom his fourth straight loss."

Statement from Chairman Cox on NY-24 Democratic Primary Results

June 29, 2016

"The paltry turnout in a heavily contested Democratic primary does not bode well for the Democratic candidate, who now has to face one of the most respected and effective members of the House. In his short time in office, Congressman Katko has already passed more than a dozen bills and secured millions in transportation and infrastructure needs for his district. He has established himself as a results-oriented leader who can get the job done--exactly what's needed for Central New Yorkers."

4. Tree Law/Referral from Town Board
The board continued its discussion of the draft new tree law, preferring to limit its comments to general themes rather than a section by section review.  In general, members felt that the current law had not created problems for the board and that the board needs flexibility in applying the law to different circumstances.

SENATOR MURPHY: VICTIMS, FAMILIES, 
NEED A VOICE TOO
Freshman Senator Passes Milestone Legislation in Senate to Ensure Victims of Crimes and Their Families Have a Voice at Parole Hearings

Recent mug shot of convicted murderer Terry Losicco following his arrest on June 20th for violating his parole which was granted on March 10th.

ALBANY, NY - Too many dangerous criminals have had their sentences shortened or commuted because of legal loopholes. Senator Terrence Murphy has closed one of those loopholes, getting justice for crime victims. A new bill authored by Senator Murphy (S7224), ensures that past and current statements made by crime victims, or their representatives, will be considered when a parole board is making a decision to release an inmate.
 
"This legislation spares the victim the trauma of having to relive a horrifying experience every time a parole hearing is scheduled," Senator Murphy explained. "Their statement can be read into the record at each parole hearing, ensuring their voice is heard. It also emphasizes that the impact of a potential parolee's actions should not be forgotten. A victim's statements, or their family's, should not have an expiration date."

A crime victim can designate someone to represent them. A representative can be the crime victim's closest surviving relative, a guardian or someone legally appointed to the task. Statements submitted by the victim or their representative may include information concerning threatening or intimidating conduct made by the inmate toward the victim or their family. Crime victims or their representatives now also have the option to request a transcript of the parole hearing.

The legislation was inspired by the release of Terry Losicco, who was convicted in the 1980 murder of 67-year old Somers resident Eleanor Prouty. He also severely beat Eleanor's wheelchair-bound husband, Norman. Losicco was 16 at the time and lived at Lincoln Hall, a school for troubled boys. 
 
Losicco and an accomplice broke into the Prouty's home. Losicco bludgeoned Norman Prouty into unconsciousness with a piece of firewood. He beat and strangled Mrs. Prouty, then stomped on her so hard he left an imprint of his boot on her face. Locisso completed his odious act by sodomizing Mrs. Prouty. Losicco, who was led to believe there were large sums of money in the house, left with $25.
 
Losicco was convicted of three second-degree murder accounts, two counts of first-degree robbery, there counts of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree assault and one count of third-degree larceny. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison and first became eligible for parole in 2005.
 
Brooks Prouty was 15-years old when his grandmother was murdered. Since her death, Brooks has fought vigorously to keep Terry Locisso behind bars, including starting an online petition that garnered more than 1,170 signatures.
 
"You relive the horrible memories every time you go through a hearing," Prouty said. "There's been too much concern in the past for the rights of criminals, too much talk about rehabilitating unredeemable monsters instead of addressing the pain they cause their victims and their families. This is important legislation that holds criminals responsible for their acts. It's legislation with a heart."
 
Terry Losicco was denied parole seven times over the past ten years before getting approval for his release in March. One of the mitigating factors in Losicco's release was that his parole hearing occurred before the Prouty family was even notified. As a result, no one from Eleanor Prouty's family was available to represent them at Losicco's last parole hearing.
 
There is a silver lining both in the new legislation and in Terry Losicco's fate. Losicco was arrested June 20th for violating his parole and is being held without bail.

The legislation passed the Senate by a vote of 59-2 and passed the Assembly in May.  The bill is expected to be sent to Governor Cuomo shortly for his approval.
