A village pier near me began restricting nonresident crabbers because, along with taking every single crab that they caught, regardless of size or eggs, they piled any seaweed, eelgrass, etc. that came up with their traps on the pier, leaving rotting, stinking heaps of vegetation that the village had to remove.  

 

After all, it wasn't their tax money that paid for the cleanup.

Non residents don’t make a difference. if trash is the issue then you guys should try going to Massachusetts. $10,000 fine for throwing a plastic candy wrapper into the water. My eyes looked out last I went there.

 

what is it over here? $50? Joke of a state. Make poaching and trash’s loitering $10,000 per piece and you’ll solve your problem.

 

as for town permits, towns don’t exist. Everywhere you go there are no towns. It stops at county and the rest is HoA. LI has its head inside out on almost every aspect. Been to a lot of places that are better in terms of stuff like this.

 

Also, LI folks don’t have a problem with non residents. They have a problem with … I’ll say it… Some races. Can’t solve that problem in NY as it’s democratic.

Maybe in some states.  Others, not so much.

 

In Connecticut, for example, county governments don’t exist.  It’s all towns.

I am a proud New Yorker! Been to florida, arizona, oregon, texas, nevada, north carolina and virginia.  You can keep it all.

Best state in the Country as far as I am concerned.  Ocean, Mountains, Skyscrapers, #1 Best Fire Department in the world! Everywhere else is second best.

I agree 100 %.Everywhere I 've traveled people always are interested in NY, Steve you only touched on a small part of what this state has to offer let's NEVER FORGET the Medical System that we have available to us since I am dealing with major health issue there is NO Place I'd rather live to deal with my medical issues.Yes ,it's far from perfect. As far as I know there is NO UTOPIA every place has issues.

Charlie,

Wish you the best!  We may not agree on everything.  People come from all over the world to seek medical attention at New York hospitals.  Witnessed in person at Sloan in Manhattan. I hope the young guys bitching about boat ramps and permits never need their expertise.

The average joe doesn’t go to Sloan. I believe what you’re saying is that each place has pros and cons but the pros and cons here are expensive to swallow.

 

no place is utopia that’s right, but having only five beaches to see on this big of an island…. We should be able to park and go EVERYWHERE as it’s an island. It’s a problem because rich people think they own the beach.

dmac95,

Blue collar all the way here! Sloan may not be available to all, but their clinical trials and findings filter down as accepted standard of care elsewhere in less famous hospitals and clinics.

Yes I am for more access.  I am also for fisherman taking care of resources we currently have, ie: leave foot prints and your success behind.

I can help you find something to be outraged by.  How 'bout a tax bill that's like a second mortgage?  Only it never gets paid off?

 

Best part is *everything*, by default, is illegal...unless you have money left over after the two mortgages.  Then you can grease your way into some pleasure.  Except for fireworks.  

 

Then you get stabbed in the face by a random guy who was released on a beer ticket last week, no bail, after tuning up a woman who was being annoying about his cheating.  You know, in the name of equality and justice.

And nothing will change until younger generations are in positions of power.  

Have to say it, but that won't change much.  It never has.

 

My "younger generation" was going to save the world.  End war.  End poverty.  Save the environment.  End racial and gender discrimination.  And maybe give life to friendly dragons and unicorns, too,.

 

It all sounded good when everyone was still taking classes and arguing philosophy over their substance of choice late into the night.

 

But time moved on, and they got jobs, and spouses, and mortgages.  Jerry Rubin, founder of the Yippies, took a position on Wall Street with John Muir, one of the more corrupt penny stock brokers of the time.  

 

It's not that they didn't make changes; it's just that the changes were bad.  They were the generation that altered the American workplace, laying off workers and demanding longer hours of those who remained, instituting the notion of "face time"--sitting at your desk well after 5:00 just so your manager could see yuour supposed dedication to the job, eliminating pensions and reducing medical benefits, hiring temps instead of full-time workers to reduce costs and increase profits, leading to increased bonuses for those in control.  They became politicians and--well, you can see how that worked out for yourself.

 

The problem with younger generations is that they get old.

 

While they're still young, they're the screwees, and as such, have an intimate understanding of inequity and the need for change.  But as they grow older, they--or at least enough of them--mature into screwers, who then do unto the screwees what was done unto them, often with new, creative, and more painful twists.

 

It's just the way life goes.  Sometimes there are aberrations that lead to temporary change, but in the end, it's a survival trait to look after yourself and your progeny.  That's how your genes survive.  So even if  things get better for a while, they tend to swing back to the mean, where they've been for so many years, for no better reason than it's the situation that best benefits those pulling the strings.
