Poising for Poison
Cuomo is getting ready to promote a Jobs Bill, which, not unlike Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus that created no new jobs, is just a massive tax increase. Where is our “fiscally responsible” GOP? Poising to sell it’s rapidly diminishing soul for a few precious seats in the unilaterally-decided (read: Cuomo’s) redistricting plan. Read it here: http://insidewnypolitics.com/
This just in: “Yesterday, Cuomo said that New York needs the hikes because it’s ‘the progressive capital of the nation.’ Well, of course it is. That’s why the demand for more taxes never ends: All that “progressivism” must be paid for.“ Read more at the New York Post: Andrew’s surrender
Another Losing Proposition
The State’s revenues are collapsing because the taxpayer-funded public sector is bigger than the taxpaying private one, and the insatiable blob refuses to put itself on a diet. Governor Andrew Cuomo’s answer? Bleed more money out of the populace to fund infrastructure, work which will only be available to taxpayer-funded Unions, and legalize gambling.
Gambling casinos essentially always causes poverty and blight upon surrounding communities — even the Florida Governors Report (of around the year 2000) found that for every $1 that comes from gambling casinos, a whopping $12.50 is spent on
-extra police enforcement
-welfare for families whose members spend the farm
-rehab & recovery programs
-bankruptcies, and other types of strain on the judicial system
Trumping the Seneca Nation with State-sponsored gambling, they will fill the casinos with dues-paying Union employees and the Democrats will have a perpetual slush fund with which to fill their campaign coffers.

Then call the guvnuh, and tell him to get a clue. In a really polite way, of course.
Thanks for the heads up, George Curtis ~!
I seriously feel as if we are wasting our time, money and effort engaging in political campaigns until the electronic machines can be properly tested and prohibited from being tampered with. Please get in on the effort to proactively address the problem. Here’s what you can do:
1– Read the Petition for a Redress of Grievances, which addresses Bailouts, the unlawful Fed and Public Debt, and Voter Fraud among other things.
2– If you agree, scroll down and sign the Statement of Beliefs
3– Share it with family and friends
4– Get in on a webinar with Bob Schulz’ Constitution Lobby this Wednesday night.

Programmer under oath admits computers rig elections
Alan Bedenko and Chris Smith, the same blokes who accused Carl Paladino of sending unethical emails (who, as it turns out, were guilty of maliciously crafting such emails to defame others in the past) are at it again — throwing around false information to defame Carl, and using the otherwise halfway decent rag Artvoice to do it. So much for honesty and integrity in reporting anymore. Carl’s response? Pull all ads, and prohibit the distribution of ArtVoice in any Ellicott Development properties. Kudos, Carl.

Support the REINS Act
The REINS Act would begin to restore Congress’s proper role in the creation of rules that govern the country by requiring executive agencies to submit major rulemaking proposals (with an economic impact over $100 million) to Congress for review and a clear up-or-down vote and a presidential signature before the rules take effect.

On November 30th, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) voted to ambush elections.
“…the Board is seeking to dramatically shorten the election time period for all cases, something organized labor has long sought because it means employees will have less time to hear any point of view other than the union’s.”

New Video: “Land of the Freebies, Home of the Enslaved”
I don’t know about you, but we are getting dizzy with daily revelations of violations to our civil liberties, confrontations of ignorance, apathy and immorality, and new burdens to contend with.
We need to work as if everything depends on us, and pray as if everything depends on God (well, because it does). If you missed it, make sure you catch Some Really Amazing People (I keep remembering people and adding them daily!), and please make time to spend some time together with us at our Annual Holiday Potluck on January 6th. And please don’t float away, though Lord knows we’re tempted to!
Stay healthy –!

Let’s sail away
Find our own country
We’ll build a house and beds out of palm trees
Let’s get away
Let’s push our lives aside
…Well it seems like we can never catch a break
Just a keep a hold on me don’t let go
If you float away, if you float away
Waiting too long for a ship to come
Don’t you float away, don’t you float away
