Got a very good nights sleep, Stacy is still kinda Crashed on the couch but he was up later than me and thus managed to tell this story before I did:

“I work 75 hours a week at this place,” said the owner-operator of a convenience store on State Route 41 in Cortland County. “All I ever get are bills coming in, where they’re raising the taxes on this and raising the taxes on that.”

The silver-haired small business owner’s diatribe had begun when I put a copy of the Syracuse Post-Standard on the counter and he asked, “Reading about all our political prostitutes?”

His business was my favorite stop of the trip, he sold RootBeer Popsicle which I like in the same way Stacy likes coffee and cigs.

He also points out that the store was in fact in NY-24 so I stand corrected about passing through Mr. Hannah’s district.

He also updated his post with an interview with Ann Maire Buerkle

It's not generally known but Robert Stacy McCain weaves a multi colored cocoon and emerges from it daily to blog

So once he emerges from the cacoon we will be off and running.

They have lots of mobility:

New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is reportedly pitching a plan for an increased “millionaire’s tax” aimed at 75-85 thousand New Yorkers making $1 million or more a year.

And for those brokers who don’t move, consider this. The top earner types among brokers will demand pay raise to maintain their levels of income, their firms will achieve this by raising fees. The Result? This will turn into a tax on stockholders no matter where they live.
