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

Last week the net roots far lefties had their big hoe down in Vegas.
This week the even farther left are having an even bigger shindig in my backyard.
With 25 various so called peace groups coming to Albany NY, it reminded me of how I got sucked in to the anti-war movement back in 07 .
Last September I did a post about my time with the Communists.
And with so many of them in town it’s time to once again come clean and call them out for what they really are.
Yes, it’s true.
I used to hang with Communists.
But don’t stone me just yet.
If only . . .
If only we had found WMD’s in Iraq.
If only we had found OBL right away.
If only . . .
And the more the war in Iraq dragged on the more I wondered just why we were there.
Then to hear (On a National Geographic Channel Special) how we may have been duped in the run up to the war, the angrier I became.
If we had just focused on Afghanistan and worried about Iraq later, (if ever)
So I exercised my freedom of speech and started going to peace vigils.
PUT DOWN THAT ROCK, I see you. 😉
There was no one on the Mainstream Evangelical or conservative side calling for anti- war demonstrations.
The only conservatives saying anything along those lines were the conservatives in the far right alternative parties demanding Bush be impeached.
But no peace marches.
But there I was, a token “Jesus Freak” out there with my sign that said,
“Support The Troops, Bring Them Home Now!”
The peaceniks welcomed me with open arms. They started inviting me to all kinds of things. And I wondered just what in the world had I gotten myself into.
The last straw was the most telling. They invited me to “Workers Rights” Day.
“WORKER’S RIGHTs DAY?” That sounds allot like “Workers of the World Unite!” doesn’t it?
And sure enough WRD is on May 1st.
May Day is celebrated in Havana and Beijing. It’s the birthday of Communism, the start of atheist religious tyranny in Russia.
They say politics makes strange bedfellows. But when it comes to hanging out with God hating communists and anarchist woman that brag how they can pee outside standing up,
(Long story-you don’t want to know) that’s where I draw the line!
I still don’t understand why our country is so polarized, but I guess that’s just the way the American pie crumbles. In retrospect I believe George W. Bush and company saw what a big threat Islamic Fundamentalism was becoming and they felt after 9-11 the best thing to do was to get boots on the ground in Iraq, ASAP, no matter what the cost. Even if that meant stretching the truth or even telling lies to do it.
Who knows? If it hadn’t been for the economy going bad John McCain may have won instead of BAMA.
In the end I don’t regret my time with the commies because it taught me allot. Now I really see what the roots of the peace movement are.
There were others saying it, but I just had to see it for myself.
If we are really polarized as a nation, I’ll chose the side for for freedom and democracy.
There are other ways to deal with doubts.
Like praying, for one thing and blogging for another,
Recognizing just how far left the fringe stream media has become is good thing as well as knowing there are good news hubs on the web that set the record straight.

It’s certainly been a crazy year for those of us with children in the Schenectady School District. There are two things that keep me from totally giving up on this city altogether. One is, as a person of faith I know how prayer changes things. And two,
after seeing how much the Obama administration is train wrecking everything in sight it just goes to show our city government isn’t so bad after all.

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.

I came as close as I hope to get this time around to NOT VOTING AT ALL in the latest round of the school budget fiasco.
“What’s the point?” I asked. It’s all a big joke.
Everyone knows when a budget gets shot down (For a gazillion good reasons) eventually they go to an awful contingency budget (Like they’re doing in Troy NY) that’s often the worst case scenario for voters.
What a crock of poo!!!
I decided to vote for two reasons.
1) Too many men and woman fought and died to preserve my right to vote. So in honor of them, (As well as all of those maimed for life) no matter how ticked off I get, I’ll vote.
2) We had a great new crop of school board members to vote in. Perhaps the four that won, (Who were endorsed by a new citizens group) can bring a breath of fresh air to the foul stench overhanging Schenectady School politics.
But here’s the thing that burns me up. All this lottery money being poured in everyday (Many from those that are poverty stricken) for education.
WHERE IS IT?
Services continue to get cut while taxes are raised.
It’s enough to make everyone want to throw their tax bills into The Mohawk River!

It’s always good when I have something to brag about instead of my usual whining moaning and groaning!
Last Thursday we were treated to The City Wide Chorus sponsored by The Schenectady Friends of Music.
Of course it helps that our daughter was involved in the elementary school portion of the program!
But it was also a treat to hear The Middle School Chorus and The High School Chorus because they were really really good!
Mega kudos to all the teachers and volunteers involved because they all did a fantastic job!
