What began nationwide as a reaction to President Obama’s radical agenda, the Tea Party Movement is now a proactive call to return the Republican Party to it’s conservative roots. Even here in liberal New York State the Tea Party Movement is alive and well. No longer are New York Republicans content to be Democrat lite in order to get their candidates elected. They want real conservatives.
The best example of this is the Tea Party’s endorsement of gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino. This race that’s down to the wire has become IMHO the fight to save The Republican Party in New York State.
Here’s the story from YNN Albany
July 1, 2010
Local Albany area terrorist and union hit man, Steven Raucci has gone to jail. And the man who may have been pulling his strings, or at least, KNEW who really was pulling his string, Schenectady school superintendent Eric Ely was able to walk away from his job and get away Scott free. In fact he received an awesome severance package from the school board after resigning.
But those of us who believe in “The Law of sin and death”, (Aka Karma) know better. It’s a law more sure than gravity. Or to put it another way.
What goes around comes around.
In this life or the one to follow.

A family in Hudson Falls NY USA is bearing a cross no one should ever be forced to carry.
Six children perished in a deadly house fire.
Yet one of the things that still makes the USA a great nation is how charity can spontaneously
erupt at a moments notice. A fund has been established and a fund raiser has been set up
to aide the survivors of this tragedy.
Fox 23 Albany has the story
It’s times like this when we want to ask, “Where was God?
“Why did He allow this to happen?”
That’s a good question!
It seems the hardest price God has to pay in granting humanity free will is that He had to also allow the consequences to occur resulting from our choices.
As a result of Adam and Eve’s wrong choice they lost paradise and became vulnerable to all the forces of nature. Their offspring became so wicked that generations later God destroyed the earth in a flood. Everyone perished except for Noah’s family.
Centuries later after God scattered humanity after The Tower of Babel He chose one man Abraham to found His chosen people Israel out from whom would come the Messiah, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Although He was The Son of God, He rejected royalty and obeyed His Father God to suffer the worst this awful world could dish out and become the sin offering for the world while dieing on a Roman cross.
But after Good Friday came Easter morning and the witness of the empty tomb. By the power of The Holy Spirit and the witness of the apostles the gospel rapidly spread throughout The Roman World and The Church was established.
When God’s people obey The Holy Spirit the The Real Church becomes “The Salt of the Earth” and “The Light of the World.”
As a result if nations and leaders listen to the true church (Which is Not just one human organization BTW) people can be blessed. When nations and leaders persecute the church evil reigns. Yet for some reason The church always seems to grow the fastest when it has the most against it. How ironic.
So where was God at a time like this? He’s right with family and the community grieving along with them. We the church, as God’s people are now His hands that reach out, His arms that embrace, and His feet to move and accomplish His Will.
We are all called to carry each others burdens like The bible says we should. We’re to rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.
One day Our Father God will say
On that day The Son will come again in order to establish His Kingdom on the earth. In that day death, Hell, and the evil one will get what’s coming to them.
For this family in Hudson Falls, that day can’t come soon enough.
Please join me in praying for them.

Here’s the way Time Warner Cable’s “Your News Now” covered today’s Tea Party in downtown Albany. (Click on picture)
For the most part their coverage was positive except when presenting an opposing view they always go for the most inflammatory. That would be former President’s Clinton remark comparing Tea Party protesters to the terrorists who caused the Oklahoma City bombings.
(OH WELL, PAR FOR THE COURSE!)

I may have to get treated for self abuse over this one folks!
OW! OW! OW!

It’s at The Albany Riverfront Park at the Corning Preserve on Quay St. right off of I-787.

Remember the famous line Tom Hanks character said in the movie “Philadelphia?”
“What do you call ten lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean?”
A GOOD START!”
Perhaps they were referring to the scum that’s willing to dredge up whatever defense it takes to get their client off.
What is his lawyer’s defense so far?
Yes a house was bombed but because somebody blew up the wrong house it wasn’t Raucci. It was some teenagers who were really good at demolitions.
They weren’t really bombs!
They were firecrackers!
(Pretty good firecrackers for the damage they caused)
Is this the lawyer that gave President Bill Clinton his “I didn’t inhale,” defense?
So what do you call ten slimy lawyers drowned at the bottom of the Hudson River?
A giant step forward for New York State and Capital land!!!

It’s the trial of the century as far as the City of Schenectady is concerned. The jury selection process has begun in the case of Steve Raucci former Bulding Services Director of the Schenectady School District. He’s facing 26 charges of arson and even terrorism.
(Hat Tip Daily Gazette)
Today the list of witnesses was red and it’s a who’s who of people working for the school district, former and current. The most interesting name is Superintendent Eric Ely who according to The Daily Gazette is looking for another position anywhere in the country. That’s not a good sign for him is it?
