The speakers were great, the venue was great, and we were able to raise enough to put over $1000 in the till! Many thanks to all who came and contributed, those who brought food, and to everyone who helped, especially Joanne, Mike, Leslie, Tomm, Linda, Megan, Jeff, Lenny & Rus .. and a few new people who came early to help setup, and those who helped clean up. And a special thank you to Carl Paladino for speaking and for letting us host it at the Ellicott Square Building!
Regardless of who wins the Republican Primary on Super Tuesday today, in which ten states will be voting, or in the New York Primary on April 24th, our #1 Objective is to defeat Barack Obama. We need to get behind his opponent, no matter who he is. Aside from launching America into nearly irreparable bankruptcy and his daily violations of the US Constitution, Obama’s inability to grasp the basic economic principle that you cannot spend more than you take in, and that we cannot tax our way to prosperity has rendered Obama completely unfit for office.
We would like to blanket Erie & Niagara counties with mailers, educating the public on the failures of this administration, and the necessary steps we need to take for a successful economic recovery. We’d like to buy print, radio and television ads. We are also planning an Inner-City Push and other initiatives to educate people outside the Choir. Unfortunately, there is not near enough money in the till for that. If you were unable to attend the Caucus/Fundraiser and are able to contribute to this effort, your contribution will be greatly appreciated and put to very productive use. At a minimum, we’d like to produce palm cards and door hangers, and our scant but able-bodied army will strap their boots on and deliver.

There are no contribution limits, and contributions are not tax-deductible.

Stop the gerrymandering,
for Pete’s sake
Our hideous State Legislature agreed to allow an Independent Redistricting Commission to determine new Congressional boundaries, based on a shift in population, which included a SIGNED PLEDGE TO DO SO. Well, they reneged, and decided to come up with their own partisan plans. After much wrestling between the Assembly and Senate, to see who can come up with a more ridiculous redistricting plan, Federal Judge Roanne Mann came up with an interesting proposal, placing Obamanuts Brian Higgins and Kathy Hochul in the same district.
Article and commentary here.
(CD = Congressional District)
Republican Senator George Maziarz, “representing” primarily Niagara and Orleans Counties, is engaging in a shameful display of vengeance politics. He is assembling his minions to replace Conservative Party committeemen, who awarded Mark “I-lied-marriage-died” Grisanti’s opponent Chuck Swanick their endorsement. Those minions include a foul-mouthed punk who blogs vitriol quite possibly at taxpayer expense, as a Maziarz staffer — http://niagaratimes.blogspot.com/. You won’t find much there now though, because he removes it under duress.
You say, “But Maziarz voted against gay marriage!” Well, that’s because he can, as he can with other issues important to conservatives. He knows he’ll catch flack in his district if he casts a liberal vote, so he finds others to do his dirty work for him, and it passes. Voila. As long as there are enough votes, he can vote whatever way is most politically advantageous, without affecting the outcome. Maziarz worked behind the scenes to get gay marriage passed, and he’s been working tirelessly, and shamelessly, to preserve the seat for Mark. He consistently abuses the power of his office to crush the opposition under threat of retribution.
Word has it Sam Hoyt and his manicured men are also jumping into the fray.

What’s wrong with gay marriage?
Still confused on the matter? Here’s the short answer: Government didn’t create marriage, so they have no business re-defining it. At a minimum, they should have put the issue up for referendum, or popular vote. And here’s a Christian position, as a refresher: My Gay Friends vs. the Bloody AGENDA
Warrior of Reform
Dave Mongielo is a warrior. He is consistently harassed by politicians of his town in Niagara County, and most recently, faced jail time for advertising for a fundraiser for an injured Sheriff’s Deputy, “in violation” of local zoning laws. Yet he keeps on helping residents and educating the public on political corruption — as well as taking time out of his business to walk door to door, to encourage people to become committeemen, to begin to influence the process and replace corrupt politicians with people of integrity. We need 20 more people like Dave Mongielo.

Goodness, it looks like things are starting to get nasty…
Stand strong, my friend!
I am America
Pay no attention to the people in the street
Crying out for accountability
Make a joke of what we believe
Say we don’t matter ’cause you disagree….
You hide your eyes and refuse to listen
You play your games and abuse the system
You stuff your pockets while Rome is burning
I’ve got a feeling that the tide is turning
I am America, one voice, united we stand
I am America, one hope to heal our land
