Interesting news. The New York Power Authority, with its usual dose of wacked-out, mafia-like, New York favoritism, has offered to give Yahoo, Inc. reduced power rates if it will build a data center in Western New York State.
This deal would bring a whopping 125 jobs to Upstate NY. Whooooppeee! That should offset the 25,000 jobs we've lost!
I scratch my head and marvel at our state. Why the heck won't they just lower rates, lower taxes, reduce regulation?! New York residents are taxed to the GILLS-- on everything from Cyber Monday Internet purchases (which is unconstitutional) to taxes upon taxes! It's insanity! It's so maddening!
