This episode starts off with a speech from July 23, 2016. Michael Vasquez was one of the features speakers at the pro-2nd Amendment, anti-SAFE Act rally in Norwich, NY. Additional speakers included County Executive Rob Astorino, Wendy Long, Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney, Assemblyman Bill Nojay, and State Senator Fred Akshar.
We also discuss how the major news media mainly ignored the event, with one news station doing selective editing at the event and Fox40 nearly missing the entire event. A true disservice to the public, and we admonish them for it.
But the final segment discusses the Back the Blue event in Binghamton, NY on July 25, 2016. Held at the Binghamton City Hall, the annual event brought together some 200 politicians and members of the community - even some from Tioga and Chenango Counties - in a display of support for the police and the work they do. We also address the feeble attempt by Black Lives Matter to protest against the police.
As always, we work hard to bring you the issues affecting you. We thank you for your support in listening to the podcast, Like and Share, and your respectful comments. We also ask that if you can, please donate to help us replace our professional camera that broke. We hope to raise $1,500 to replace it to continue to maintain the quality so many have come to expect over the years. Even $2 or $5 will help, and we thank you for anything that you do.
