    Well there goes any reason to want to freely express your opinion. Might as well shut it down now. Dr. Geogymn has just left his imprimatur.

    Perhaps ideas to develop parts of the Addacks doesn't represent your best interests. That's okay. However, with so much land available it IS possible to add some new attractions without an industrial complex which could wreck a good thing.

    Stay away from high peaks and pristine wilderness, but an IndyCar Race Track, a casino, and trotter track, another frontier land, could bring in millions of tourist dollars and more tourists. How about a castle like Neuchwanstein Germany? I know you don't want to hear of an ATV trail system, but these are all possibilities that private ownership could make available and still keep factories at bay.

    "No. Let's not change a thing. We don't want to ruin our park. I like things the way they are."

    That's an idea too. Maybe the best idea. Or is it?

    You do realize the reverse it currently true. NYS sends billions to Adirondackia.

    In addition to the tribute Adirondackia would have to fund the retirement and benefits for all state workers. This would add up to more billions. Not to mention all the medicare and medicare requirements for this new state.
    Not a "new state", same state, just different people in charge. Adirondackia would receive the taxes normally sent to the state. Yes, they would have to fund new employees benefits, but NOT previous workers benefits though some previous state workers would work for the new entity. And yes, The new group would need tribute money so where would they get it? I have some ideas but perhaps other folks on the forum also have ideas. How could a new business entity generate income up and beyond current means? Bond issues? Stock sales? More resorts and attractions? The previous Governor bumped up the advertising budget to attract more tourists realizing a way to increase spending in the Addacks. Any other ideas?

    "But it would never be approved. The state would never give up something they?ve invested the time and money into such as the park."

    If the tribute is healthy and annual and the state gets bailed out of its financial dilemma it could be approved. It would still be NY, wilderness would be protected, private ownership would be protected, same basic rules only much more money going to improvements, better facilities and no more liability for the state, how could they turn that down?

    Mr. Montcalm,
    Regarding your last post, please tell me how this is related to the current thread?

    MAJOR THREAD DRIFT.

    In June 2021, Gendron had been investigated by police in Broome County for threatening other students at his high school.[23][38][43] A teacher had asked him about his plans after the school year, and he responded, "I want to murder and commit suicide."[44] He was referred to a hospital for mental health evaluation and counseling but was released after being held for a day and a half.[23][43][45]

    Gendron told police that he was joking; he would later write online about how it was a well-executed bluff.[42][46] He was not charged in connection with the incident; investigators said that he had not made a specific enough threat to warrant further action.[43][46] The New York State Police did not seek an order from a state court to remove guns from Gendron's possession.[46][47] The mental health evaluation was not an involuntary commitment, which would have prohibited him from buying guns under federal law.[46]

    Major red flags yet psychiatric care was not adequate or available. Funny stuff.

    Ali Alexander, a right-wing political activist who took part in organizing the rally and expressed support for the storming as "completely peaceful", was reported as saying in December that Representatives Paul Gosar (R?AZ), Andy Biggs (R?AZ), and Mo Brooks (R?AL) were involved in the planning of "something big".[94] "We're the four guys who came up with a January 6 event", he said.[95] According to Alexander, "It was to build momentum and pressure and then on the day change hearts and minds of Congress peoples who weren't yet decided or who saw everyone outside and said, 'I can't be on the other side of that mob.'

    Yeah... it'll all be peaceful. And legal too. Hilarious.

    I think perhaps the idea of stealing the Adirondacks doesn?t quite sit well with me. I wonder if the gent in Texas was on a forum telling everyone how he was going to secure his school? Apparently some people had a conversation like this before they convened at the Capitol and tried to nullify an election.

    Ideas like this should not be taken lightly.


    Maybe you think recent events and current feelings of secession are a laughing matter?

    Of course this would all happen with state approval, hence no laws would be broken.
    It?s the only way it would be legal and would not result in conflict.


    But it would never be approved. The state would never give up something they?ve invested the time and money into such as the park.

    You?d have better luck trying to nullify Article 14.
