MOUNT VERNON, NY — October 2,  2019 — Tech companies have too much power — too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy.  Well known anti -trust cases like the breakup of AT&T in the 1980’s, and the breakup of Microsoft in 2000’s, were well founded.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — July 15, 2019 — “I am the Left.” So sayeth Andrew Cuomo. Is he? It’s a bold statement that invites scrutiny, if only because it echoes the king of France, Louis XIV, who has been forever remembered for saying, “I am the State.” That didn’t turn out well for anyone.
