State Dusts Off Artifacts as Cuomo’s Address Nears


As Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s second State of the State address draws closer, the state is pulling out more and more historical artifacts from governors past, with a set of old-timey cars and limousines being pulled onto the Empire State Plaza concourse as workers finish off interior improvements to the Capitol.

The cars — at least one of which was used by a former governor, as the TU’s Jimmy Vielkind noted yesterday — were pulled indoors Tuesday on the concourse between the state Capitol and the Empire State Plaza Convention Center. The Convention Center, of course, is where Cuomo will give his address for the second straight year.

Among the improvements to the Capitol state officials are hoping will be finished by Jan. 4? A refurbished skylight at the Assembly staircase, as well as a revamped Hall of Governors, which includes new lights and gubernatorial portraits that have been dusted off and restored.

  1. When the [Current Govornor] of The New York State Won The Office – It was the “Succeeeding Govornor of Co-incidence” that “was for reasonable doubts”moved out of the Race by [Probably] the “System” what the “insiders only know”! . . . .

    At the time “when the elections were over” it was “The Current Govornor” took a “Oath of Office” in a “Private Ceremony” right after his “first unofficial visit to the Sing Sing” Jail! [Joke]!- I wrote then that what any why “take an Oath of Public Office” in a “Private Ceremony”; Hey! it was not your “Wedding”! . . . . . . This was the first act that could have thrown a lot of reflections on what was yet to come! . . . Now it’s time for Second State of The State Address” – So! Reading the Newspapers, it gives me a feeling of a “Concert” sellout or a kind of Fame Hunger at its Peak . . .where it todays time everyone is trying to be forcing themselves and their “self-procliamed celebrity” status on the People of America. Attirred in the Best Suit, Tie and Shirt and Shoes [where as I wear torn shoes] stiched twice at a Shoe Maker; because I can’t afford to buy a new Pair!

    When My Dad [ The Greatest Constitutionalist] that I know growing up heard this From My Mother that I had a few months had mentioned in our Routine Conversations”!

Today, if I am a Man What I have become its because of How My Father and Mother Raised me! – It not words that can define the Love My Father has bestowed upon all of us in the Hasan Family!

    My Parents are married for over 65 Years now. And, that what I call Blue Blood. Suely, particularly when in My Small Town America where “People without Documents i.e. Personal Certificarte of their Exisitence] make Judegements on my and CAlled me Names! I really get very concerened! How respectful is that “where” One goes to Drink every Night and call themslves “upscale” and question other People’s Ethics and Morality [acording to Bibile or Quran] versus their “So-established Hook-up! Pay the Dollar Amounts and get anything!” including one’s . . . . . . . ! Yes! Next Morning ay that “Oh! I was Drunk” and restart the next day judgeing others who care FOREMOST about the County! How much do these “who are Judgeing other Care for the County and What is on their Belt?” Condoms? . . . .

    And Life goes on! . . . Its easy to “Raise the Debt Ceiling to 1.2 Trillion Dollars; but what is most important is the fact to ASK WHERE IS THAT MONEY BORROWED MONEY WILL BE USED?
    No one can answer that! Who are the Most Diobious People in the Echlons of Power Today?

    Ask yourself!

    Concluding, I read about this Show-off at the Capitol in NY – Govornor’s Hall of Fame! What exactly have these Govornors done to have a Hall of Fame in the First Place?

    Ladies and Gentlemen! Are they going to put a Slide over there in the Fame House to mention When The Current Govornor’s Father was leaving His Term; He was not given Escort on the Last Day . . . So when The Son took Office they did not Give Patterson a Escort Home on his last Day?
