Be Sober and Partake (Alert:17Feb2011)

Carl NAILS it — yet again
Carl Paladino has written an exceptional statement on all that is wrong with Andrew Cuomo’s budget.  Take a looksee, study it, and pass it on far and wide for all to see.
TURN ALBANY UPSIDE DOWN
(Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Budget is Unacceptable)


The Anointed One
Many people are vying for the 26th Congressional District seat, after Chris Lee’s dalliances and ensuing resignation, but the heir apparent is Jane Corwin of the 142nd Assembly.  The sham of interviewing candidates is a front for propriety, because never has it been clearer that the seat is going to the highest bidder.  Our decaying Democracy at work.  Jane is a rich Party girl, and though conservative leaning, she hasn’t exactly been forthcoming on her positions.

This is a Special Election that will take place in 90 days — there will be no Primary, no petitions, and no usual solicitation or rewarding of endorsements — meaning the the Dems and Repubs pick their candidates, end of story.  However, there is an effort underway to get Jack “Save American jahbs” Davis on the ballot, and he may be pushed as a TEA Party candidate.

DO NOT BE FOOLED.  Corwin is less than perfect, but it would be far better she get that seat, than risk getting a Liberal by splitting the line. A third party candidate would be disastrous. It’s being reported they will need to get 13,000 signatures in 12 days to run a third line, which is why it is virtually never done in Special Elections.  You can do as you please, but we are not going to lift a finger to help in that effort.  In addition, it’s quite possible that Lenny Roberto will get many GOP blessings to take Corwin’s Assembly seat.


Kathy for Congress?
Like many of us, Kathy Weppner became a tad ill when she learned of Chris Lee’s venture into stupidity, not only because he is (was?) intelligent and decent, but because he was also one of the few Republican Congressmen in NYS.  And like many God-fearing, country-loving patriots, she decided to offer herself as a candidate for that seat, as inconvenient or unrealistic a run might be.

Kathy is a conservative WBEN radio personality and Tea Party girl, who has alot of name recognition and a great following, but naturally, and unfortunately, we expect the GOP is set on their intention of installing a party person, despite the obvious need for someone with real conviction, and disregarding our desperate need for real reform.

You can also contact Erie County GOP Chair Nick Langworthy to let him know that Kathy Weppner embodies our beliefs, and we feel she would be a great candidate that would stand on the courage her conservative convictions, and not vacillate or compromise on critical issues facing our nation — like socialized healthcare, Cap & Trade, Amnesty for Illegals, the undermining of our Constitution and the proposed abolition of our 2nd Amendment rights, among other things.  You may also want to express your polite disgust that the seat is being bought. Nick’s email address is nlangworthy@ecgop.com or call 716.856.8700.

Our Boy is a Man, By God
Seven of us just returned from seeing our 21 year-old son Jacob Thompson graduate from Army Basic Training at Fort Jackson in South Carolina.  He’s now at Redstone Arsenal near Huntsville, Alabama, where he will undergo the first phase of his training as an EOD — an Explosives Ordnance Disposal Specialist.  Rus and I are proud parents indeed, and have a new appreciation for the realm of emotions military parents endure.  Not long ago, Jacob gave himself to the Lord, and was baptized just a few months ago.  He’s a man on a mission:  To save lives physically and spiritually.


Cairo, Egypt in Madison, Wisconsin
New Governor Scott Walker of Madison, Wisconsin and the new majority in his State’s Legislature are preparing to make some dramatic budget cutbacks, including curtailing the Unions’ collective bargaining activities, and like Chris Christie of New Jersey, getting state workers to increase their contributions to their own pension fund.  New York State’s Governor and Legislature should be doing the same!  The Empire Center for NYS Policy has identified $120 billion shortfalls with respect the the looming pension tsunami.
Read about the Madison protests here, and read the Empire Center’s report here.

Feel free to call your State Legislators to respectfully and strongly express the need for them to address this situation with as much fortitude and leadership as the Wisconsin Legislature is doing.

“You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.”  ~1 Thess 5-8 NIV
