New York state could be the only place where the Tea Party Movement may have hurt the Republicans rather than help them. It didn’t help that Carl Paladino was not ready for prime time and got set up by the Dems and the fringe stream media like a bowling pin. And now King Cuomo is firmly in charge.
In the next two years Republicans will have to decide what really works in New York may not be the same as what works for the rest of the country. Perhaps it’s better to be pragmatic than idealistic.
On the other hand two years can be a long time in the age of 24/7 hour news cycles. The Republican tsunami that swept most of the nation could grow in 2012 to reach into places as unlikely as the NY-21 where the GOP candidate did allot better than the usual token challenge in 2010.
But whatever optimism Republicans have about this nation’s future. They need to remember that New York State is an alternate reality.

Don’t burn any books on 9-11, fire up your heart instead. Hold a prayer vigil and a fast for the church in America.
Who knows where we are in God’s timetable. A couple more 9-11 types disasters add a few hurricanes and a good earthquake, bye bye USA.
I pray it never happens for the sake of our children, but what would we do? Dare we think we’re immune to such things here.
Picture riots and martial law everywhere as Washington DC burns. Imagine mobs trampling on all our sacred documents with the capital in ruins.
I love this country and I pray God will spare us once again.
But all of you who know history and who study your bible know that anything is possible.
Will we be ready as a church for what happens?

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.

How did Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif. ever get voted into office?
Take a look at this clip from FOX NEWS to see the smug “Know it all” attitude he has towards his constituents.
WHAT A LOSER!

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!
Why God? Why?
One of the coolest political events to come to little Deadbany
(Every out of towners favorite nickname for Albany NY)
is this Saturday and I can’t go.
It’s at The Albany Riverfront Park at the Corning Preserve on Quay St. right off of I-787.
Here’s the link
The good news is my awesome cool wife (how’s that for earning get out of the doghouse free points?)
will be able to attend with her hen posse
Besides the reason I can’t go is there’s an important seminar happening at my church
and that takes priority
besides, no big deal
my awesome wife will be there!
