Cuomo angers farmers in Rhode Island, and they are boycotting Albany

3

Farmers in Rhode Island are reportedly not taking kindly to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s remarks last month that conservatives have no place in New York.

Cuomo SOS 2014So the state’s Farm Bureau voted not to come to Albany in March for a conference of Northeastern farm bureaus, the Associated Press reported today.

Cuomo garnered national attention when he said in a radio interview that “extreme conservatives” have no place in New York. Cuomo’s aides have explained that he was trying to say that conservatives can’t win statewide office in New York, a heavily Democratic state.

The Rhode Island Farm Bureau, though, said that it won’t come to town because of “disturbing and insensitive” comments by Cuomo, AP reported.

From the AP:

The Rhode Island bureau feels the comments fly in the face of policies adopted by the American Farm Bureau and embraced by his group, including on guns, abortion and “family and moral responsibility.” The local president said Tuesday the organizations champion “freedom and family values.”

Messages were left with New York’s bureau and Cuomo’s office.

  1. Meanwhile a move on NY property is being made by trying to publicly downplay the value of the gas in NY State. NY State is where the very first gas well in the country was drilled and since more then 70,000 more have been drilled with 13,000 in production today. However, a small group of oil and gas investors are supposedly trying to convince landowners through targeted public meetings that there is no gas worth anything in NY. Rumors abound how these gas and oil investors plan to convince you your property is worthless.

    Who is Chip Northrup…? Chip who touts himself as a Texas Cowboy who rides his white pony to NY to save the Sweet Sandra of NY from the evil frackers turns out to be nothing more then a gas & oil investor trying to convince NYkers there is no gas in the shale below our state. His child like name calling and attacks on the charectar of anyone who dare present facts to him, is riffled with the behavior equal to that of an Internet bully. An Internet bully is someone (like Chip) who sits at the key board in the comfort of his home and tosses insults as if he were the invincible kid who belongs in the 8th grade but has been held back in the 5th, making him a foot taller then his classmates who rightfully fear the big dummy.

    Rumor has it Chip Northrup and Louis W.Allstadt (Two Oil & Gas investors) are conspiring together on behalf of a group of other Texas oil & Gas investors to de-value the land in Upstate NY so they can swoop in and buy it up at the low low and then flip the land for billions of dollars. The rumor is they are in cahoots with the NRDC ( an accused bunch of land grabbing carpet baggers from NY ) and the park foundation to do presentations across the state trying to convince people their is no gas in a state that has had over 70,000 gas wells drilled over the last 100 years with over 13,000 still in production today. Yeah No Gas Chip… Not until we drill anyway!

    But this isn’t the story, the story is how Chip can insult everyone who is pro gas in NY from his computer in Texas. The Story is about a fracking coward who when is at a presentation where pro gas representatives are present he maintains somewhat of a civil discourse, but when this representor of misinformation is in the comfort of an anti gas crowd he becomes a fouled mouth brave little Texas cowboy playing to the thrill of his cult. As for Chip’s character well one good example is how he blogged about minister from Upstate NY who is in favor of gas drilling. Chip called the Minister “A Man of the Holy Frack” he called the ministers congregation “The Church of The Holy Frack” labeling people he doesn’t even know. Labeling a minister who practices his faith to the point where I know the minister would forgive Chip for his child like behavior and insults is as low as you can go.

    I know men like Chip, They are the type who make racial jokes when the only people around are ones like him, talk about keeping bad company!!! Chip who apparently got his education from a Methodist School forgot the most important thing he could have ever learned. That lesson is respect of your fellow man.

  2. Cuomo will find out as time goes on that his arrogance and maliciousness will cost him a great deal of political capital. His chances of becoming POTUS are well behind him.
