  1. Story on nursing homes keeps getting worse. He was covering this up well before his earlier claims. Honestly, I am done with the man and want him out as my governor. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/04/nyregion/cuomo-nursing-home-deaths.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
  2. Yet they are retaining mask mandates, bars remain closed, capacity restrictions on movies threaters, and continued caps on gathering sizes. Also a phased reopening and not everything happening in two weeks. Yeah, so not the same.
  3. Problem is we aren't aware if you are vaccinated if you can or can not spread the disease. Given this I think we need to have mask mandates until anyone who wants to get a shot can get a shot with ease. That way if it is worse case scenerio where vaccinated people can spread the disease then we aren't spreading it to people that want a vaccine but can't get it. When we are in the world where if you are some idiot that doesn't want the vaccine and you get sick I could give two ####s about you. However, if you can't get a vaccine then we should be protecting everyone with mask mandates.
  4. I responded to you two days ago that NY doeesn't have a recall system. https://forums.footballguys.com/topic/794070-gov-andrew-cuomo/?do=findComment&comment=23276413
  5. Interesting, I remember those days as well. I am out of the power business but worked in the business in late 90s/early 2000s and remember those things well. That California market framework had other inherent issues and yes Enron and others were playing in the market a lot of the overall design created the crisis more then anything else. Like Texas, California didn't have an ICAP market in those days. They don't have one now either and use a more regulated framework I described above.
  6. It is not so simple. Basically the issue is that electricity demand is inelastic for a number of reason (a consumer has no idea what the actual price is on the wholesale market and it is necessary good (still need heat especially when it is cold and demand is high)). So at times wholesale price for electricity can be going through the roof due to freezing temps that are also creating supply issues but you sit in your home heating it oblivous to the costs and also needing that heat so your pipes don't freeze. Historically this was dealt with a cost+profit regime with rates set by the publ
  7. There is no way there is a republican governor in NY. You need a very moderate rpublican that would distance himself from Trump/national republicans. Unfortuantely, the republican party in ny has only gotten more conservative/Trumpian in last few years so they will nominate someone with no chance in hell. As a NY resident the only hope is that Democrats don't nominate some crazy person. Chance of that is also unlikely and for all hatred of Cuomo who honestly is not a very liberal democrat.
  8. I bought this thing after Ron’s first post. Had it a day and like it. Didn’t get the money clip part but there is an elastic thingy on outside where you can keep cash so don’t think you need that unless you want it. Also holds a lot of cards. Actually more than I need.
  9. Not sure you really understand the role of ERCOT or any independent system operator. They just manage the grid (help determine what plants run) and balance the system. Very important job to make sure the system doesn’t collapse but they don’t own the assets that went off line due to cold and they have no authority to force the companies that own the assets to improve them. While they make a great scapegoat the inherent design of the Texas system is the main cause.
  10. Also, Cuomo is not a loved man in the Democratic party in NY and hasn't been for a long-time. Much of this stems from the deals in the NY state senate between Repulicans with the IDC until that blew up in 2018. He is also viewed as a bully. Here is a good article from the Times on that. I think the political class in NY (espeically Progressives) whould love to see him go. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/22/nyregion/cuomo-new-york-covid.html
  11. There is no recall system in NY state so that is not an option. There is now an investigations started of him which is being run by Letitia James (who already hates the man before all this). Cuomo has strongly resisted allowing this investigation but was forced to give in. He is also on the verge of losing his emergency powers over this and the nursing home thing. This is not over yet.
  12. I am not going to excuse the activities of Cuomo just because others have excused the activities of members of their party.
  13. I think you misunderstand that scandal. I also don't think anyone is ignoring it. You put these two issues together and I think he is done. It is all the local news is talking about.
  14. Another one with pictures showing him touching a girls face at a wedding - https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2021/03/01/nyregion/cuomo-harassment-anna-ruch.amp.html He has to go at this point.
  15. We are talking about a $5mm dollar property that persummably has ongoing cash flow. Also, assume you have some real estate lawyer already who does the leases with the tenant. Just give them a call. I don't get the resitance of calling a lawyer here.
