Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Soros, Dinosaur B-B-Q, and you

Soros: “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”

We've recently learned that our unelected governor, David Patterson, on his way out the door, is giving half a million of our taxpayer dollars to an art museum run by a bunch of swells in the Hamptons.  We've also discovered that one of the museum's board members, David Wassong, is a key player in George Soros' organization.  Wassong also appears to be the connection that resulted in Soros' takeover over of Syracuse's own Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.  And now DinoSoros has opened a new location in Troy, again with a generous funding assist from New York taxpayers.

According to the Troy Record, the local Industrial Development Authority ponied up over $600,000 in subsidies to the Dino project. New York taxpayers are are transferring their hard earned cash to Soros, a multi-billionare hedge fund operator.  Who is this guy who needs our money so badly that Albany will take food off our tables to oblige?

Among causes support by Soros' billions, to name just two, were the election of Barack Obama and the passage of the recent federal takeover of our healthcare.  Jim O'Neill took a hard look at Soros in the Canada Free Press:
Is it possible to lay the global financial meltdown,  the radicalizing of the Democratic Party, and America’s moral decline, at the feet of one man?
It is indeed possible.
If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until the real thing comes along.  Move over, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot.  There’s a new kid on the block
When we look at Soros' global reputation, it's no wonder Dinosaur founder John Stage wants to keep the DinoSoros arrangement hushed up.  In August, the Harlem World blog covered the opening of the Dino's Harlem store and contacted Stage:
Stage rues the day the news became public. Whenever the Soros name comes up, Stage says, he receives negative comments from customers and critical e-mails.
