We continuously read and hear that
our local and state governments are
in deep debt, and ordinary citizens
are hard pressed financially.

Well then, why are tons of road salt
being dumped on local streets, county
and state highways and shopping center
parking lots?

Where are all the environmentalists
who wring their hands over global

Where are all the health care advocates?

Where are the economists?

Where are the media? The ordinary

Are all blind to the harm that this
excessive seasonal ritual of salt dumping
is doing to our transportation infra-
structure, our costly vehicles, our water
supplies, our homes and buildings, the
air we breath, to roadside trees, and
to our own health?

There is more salt residue on roadways
sidewalks, driveways, parking lots than

I know, some will argue that road salt
contributes to road and pedestrian
safety. To some degree, yes.

What about states that do not participate
in this seasonal road salt dumping mania?

How do people in those states survive?

How about New York drivers slowing
down in bad weather?

I say that the evironmental damage
economic costs and health impacts of
these annual road salt dumping binges
far outweigh any benefit.

For days Albany has been submerged
in a dense blanket of airborne road salt.

Doesn't anyone feel the sting of that
salt smog, in their nasal passages, throats
and lungs?

Doesn't anyone notice the deterioration
of road surfaces, bridges, and parking lots
due to excessive salt dumping?

Doesn't anyone look at the dying road
side trees?

Doesn't anyone look at their vehicles
and tires and wonder how long those
vehicles will last, and where will they
get the money to replace them?

Do any health care professionals observe
the smog containing a mix of airborne
road salt , vehicle and chimney emissions
and ponder the adverse impacts to human

How about vetinarians? Don't they
wonder about the adverse effects on
pets? On farm animals?

Consider this: if people with high
blood pressure are advised to limit
their salt intake - does this mean they
should stop breathing?

If it were sugar, instead of road salt
dumped - would we have an out of
control epidemic of diabetes among
humans and pets?

Exercise? Going outdoors, this time
of year, poses downright health risks
to people and their pets, in urban

Tonight, I drove my dogs to places
where they could run in the snow
avoiding the excessive road salt dumped
on streets and sidewalks.

But, we could not avoid breathing the
salt- vehicle-chimney emission laden

As I stood on my front porch, I could
hear a man gagging and coughing about
a half a block away. Finally, he came
into view, walking his loyal dog out of
a side street and across New Scotland

I wanted to call out to him and say
be sure to wash your pal's paws in warm
water, when you get home. Otherwise,
your pal runs the risk of kidney damage
from licking his salt encrustred paws.

But, I said nothing, thinking of Charles
Darwin and his theory of survival of the

Modern humans have lost their survival
instincts and powers of observation and

Saving the world is a tall order. A
Chinese proverb says- a long journey
begins with a single step- so, saving the
world begins with each individual
doing their best to save themselves
and their loved ones.

As much as big government seeks to
control every aspect of our lives, do
not look to politicians to save you.
They just don't get it.

The exessive dumping of road, with
all it's adverse environmental, economic
and health impacts is exhibit A.

You are on your own. Just pay your
taxes and vote the party line.

69 years ago this date Pearl Harbor was
attacked. I recall that day as if it were
yesterday. This morning I reflected on
what life was like then and what it is like
now. The differences are striking.

Then, we were just emerging from the Great
Depression. Some say the war was a catalyst
for the economic prosperity which followed
in the late 1940's and early 1950's following
the war.

But, on that cold December day in 1941 the
people feared for their survival because we
realized that America was no longer insulated
from attack by the vast oceans separating us
from Europe and Asia.

We did not have television, but relied on
radio, newspapers, conversation and letters
fo get the news.

German submarines were offshore. The people
feared attacks on the homeland were soon to
become reality. We had air raid drills, air raid
wardens patroled the streets ensuring that all
house lights were out after sunset.

America and Americans were very different
then as compared to now.

Family and neighbors were immigrants or
children of immigrants who came to America
for a better life. All were proud of their
respective heritages, but all were Americans.

We pulled together because our survival was
on the line, as a nation, as individuals, as

We were poor, but we had the resources
and labor to build a mighty manufacturing
base to sustain the war effort. Today, many
of our resources have been depleted, our
manufacturing base can not support a
war effort. Our population, though larger
now, is not fit to go to war or to work in
manufacturing and physical jobs even if
those opportunities existed.

Then America could sustain a huge war
effort on two fronts, the Pacific and Europe.
Today, we are not prepared to do that.

The Homefront has become a  front line
a third front in our struggle for survival.

Politicians at the federal, state and local
levels have failed to secure our borders, ports
transportation and utility lines.

The Americans of that time were united in
a love of country.  Today, we are a deeply
divided nation.  Young against old, private
sector against public sector, black against
white, female against male, poor against
wealthy. Democrat against Republican.
The divisions obscure the reality that we
are interdependent in our struggle to survive.

Demographics of immigration have changed.
Many are not proud to be Americans. They
do not wish to assimilate. 

Our land has been invaded by tens of millions
of illegal aliens, many of whom are bent on
our destruction. Federal, state and local
politicians give these illegals sanctuary and
advocate amnesty.

Our urban places are inhabited by native
born malcontents, gang bangers, drug dealers
as well as illegals, who are the natural allies of
the foreign terrorists who seek to destroy

Diversity is glorified by politicians who fail
to realize that, as President Lincoln said
during the Civil War "a house divided can
not stand''.

The 9-11 attacks marked the beginning of
WW III.  Because of the aforementioned
changing circumstances, the survival of
America and all Americans are on the line.

Sadly, most Americans, the younger generations
in particular, are oblivious to this reality as
they go about their daily lives in quest of more
stuff. They may have computers and the latest
technological gadgets, dirt bikes, cars and tons
of stuff. But, their food cubbards are empty.
They are not in good physical shape. They lack
survival perspective/skills. In short, America's
urban populations are not prepared to deal
with natural  disasters, let alone military conflict
in their own homeland.

Then, our enemies wore uniforms. But they
were separated from us by two oceans. Today
they dwell amongst us. They use cunning and
guile to disarm and dellude us, waiting for the
signal to strike. They do not wear uniforms or
ride down the roads in tanks. They use our own
technology against us; aircraft, power grids
nuclear power plants. Biological and chemical

We are at War with a devious, determined 
enemy. Our media and politicians are in
denial. They fail in their responsibities to 
inform and protect us, and themselves. As
a result the people are unaware and not
ready for what lies ahead.

Everyone seems to be focused on the economy
anddomestic issues.

Security and public safety are the priorities.
For, when we are not safe, nothing else will

Wise up! Wake up! Fellow Americans, before it
is too late!

Become better informed; better prepared and
participate in the effort to save America, our
Constitution,  our government, ourselves and
our loved ones.

Approach Hanukkah, Christmas, the New Year
and each day of your lives, keeping in mind the
old Irish proverb "live each day as if it were your
last...and one day you will be spot on"

Red Paddy has been in a reflective mood
sitting out in the back yard observing the
sky and sniffing the hint of snow in the air.
Paddy never ceases to wonder at the
changing seasons.

Paddy is ever the alert, watchful shepherd.
The Boss Dog.

Spotted Mick is wise enough. He knows
that another Winter is nearly here. With
that comes the cold, snow, ice and tons
of road salt dumped on the roadways and

With a loving glance and wag of his tail
he expresses thanks when his breakfast
is placed before him. Afterwards he takes
a brief ramble around the backyard and
returns to his warm, dry bed.

Mick leaves the shepherd duties to Paddy.

The radio weather forecast made mention
4 to 7 feet of snow in the High Sierra's. I
thought of the fateful attempt of the Donner
Party to cross the mountains on their way
to the promised land in California. They were
behind schedule and were taking what they
believed to be short cut over unfamiliar  high


Like the Donner Party we are all Pilgrims
on a journey to the promised land.  We face
many perils along the way. Some are natural
more are man made.

Like Mick, we have to be thankful for the
blessings we have each day, including fresh
water, good food and a warm, dry bed.

However, we need to be more observant
and vigilant, like Paddy.

The survival of America, and each of us
remains on the line.

We are being led by individuals who are
woefully inept; who appear unwilling or
unable to recognize ,and deal effectively
with, the perils before us.

As Mark Steyn said recently, " we have
Big Government by small men", add
(and women).

Government can't save us - we must save
the government and save ourselves.

It will take much more informed effort
on the part of the electorate, particularly
here in New York where less than a third
of the state's eligible voters bothered to
vote in the past November 2 General

As we gather with family and loved ones
to give thanks for the Blessings we have
we must cast a wary eye toward Black
Friday, and beyond, recognizing that
we must change our ways in order to
continue to have what we take for granted
every day.

In a word, like Red Paddy we will cast
a wary eye skyward and become more
shepherd -like in our behavior.

Read and share this article with all you
care for:

Without delay, take appropriate action
aimed at survival for you and your loved

The Winter will soon be upon us.

News reports say that uniformed guards are
being laid off at the Capitol, LOB, ES Plaza.

This is not a wise move, when terrorist acts
are more likely than ever before.

Security needs to be improved, not relaxed.

people descend on the Capitol, LOB and ESP

These changes will promote security for all

added police and clean ups  when large crowds
of lobby groups invade the Capitol, LOB

Our lives changed forever on 9-11.  Business
as usual is no longer possible in an age of terror.

We must change our ways and adapt to the
realities of contemporary life.

Election Day 11-2-10 has come and gone.

In Congress, control of the House will change.
The Bush tax cuts will be extended. Obamacare
and the Obama agenda to radically transform
America is derailed. Nancy Pelosi is history.

Paul Tonko was reelected, but is now in the
minority. He will be defeated in 2012, unless
he is among the casualties of redistricting
before that.

Chris Gibson won and will be to go to guy
for the Capital District.

Five or six other Congressional seats changed
hands in New York.

The Senate will no longer have a Democratic
super majority. Harry Reid survived, making
it less likely that Chuckie Schumer will become

Economic issues will remain a focus of the
new Congress, but questions of national security
emergency/disaster preparedness, securing our
national borders and rejecting amnesty for the
tens of millions of illegals who have invaded
our land, will take precedence in the days ahead.

The survival of America, and all Americans
are still on the line. We must cast a wary eye
overseas, keeping those who seek to destroy us
at bay, while rooting out their allies who dwell
amongst us, be they illegals or native born.

A policy of no federal or state aid to political
units or schools that offer illegals sanctuary
status will be necessary.

Invoke the Monroe Doctrine. Allow no missles
to be placed in Venezuela or, anywhere else, in
this hemisphere, by Iran or any other foreign
power. Allow no offshore oil drilling leases to
China or any other potential adversary.

Embargo all money, tourism and trade with
Mexico, until the Mexican government ends
the flow of illegal drugs and illegal aliens
across our border.

New York continued to remain out of step with
the rest of America. Few incumbents were
turned out of office.

New York, in particular NY City, remain
priority terror attack targets.  Illegal aliens
foreign terrorists, and their domestic allies
gangbangers, criminals and other anti-social
malcontents pose real security and public
safety threats, in addition to being a huge drain
on state and local economies and taxpayers.

Governor elect Cuomo and Lt Governor elect
Duffy have their work cut out for them. Best
wishes to them in their endeavors to change
political and economic course in New York.

Best wishes to Comptroller Di Napoli. May
he safeguard the NYS pension fund and resist
any moves to replace him as  elected sole
trustee with a politically appointed group
and may he resist any attempts by the
Governor and Legislature to raid the the
state pension fund to balance the budget or
for other state purposes.

The Democratically controlled State Assembly
will have to put politics and liberal agendas
aside, making tough decisions and casting votes
to the contrary.

The State Senate control will shift  restoring
some balance to state government, providing
hope for Upstate and Island residents that
their needs and views will be addressed.

Alaska voters have demonstrated that a
write in candidate can win, making write
in candidacies a viable option for the people.

So, we have our eyes and hopes focused on
the road ahead. No use looking in the rear
view mirror. The past is past and gone forever.

Election 2010 was a fork in the road.  Proceed
with caution.

Our hope is for a bright new day for all.

and my command of issues, particularly foreign

Vote incumbent Tonko out. Write me in.
Thank you.                            Joe Sullivan

The new voting systems in New York
give power to the people.

Write in voting is a viable alternative
to voting for candidates presented by
the various political parties.

When the Founders produced the
Constitution, they did not envision
or provide for political parties.

The write in option puts the voters
in charge of elections.

I ask voters of the 21st Congressional
District of New York, to write in
my name - Joe Sullivan -
for Representative in Congress.

When you write in (vote) for me
you are voting for the positions I
have taken on vital issues of the day.

New York State does not have initiative
and referenda - but a write in vote is
as close as a voter can get.

Of course, you will not agree 100%
with every position I have taken.

There is no such creature as a perfect
candidate...or a perfect voter, either.

We just do the best we can.

Study the posts on my web site:

Compare my web site posts on issues
vital to the survival of America, and
all Americans, with the issue positions
presented by Incumbent Paul Tonko
who has 3 ballot lines and Ted Danz
who has 2 ballot lines.

The posts on my web site are my own
thoughts, views and positions on the
vital issues at stake in this election
presented in my own words.

In contrast, the issues posts on the
Tonko and Danz web sites are the
work of political operatives, not
Tonko or Danz.

If you want term limits, substance
independence and campaign reform
and a Representative who will truly
represent you in Congress -
I am your man.

I am an Independent citizen
candidate who puts America
before blind allegiance to any
political party.

The survival of America, and all
Americans, are on the line in the
November 2 General Election.

This may be your last chance to
get it right.

A vote for Paul Tonko is a vote
for the Obama-Pelosi agenda to
radically transform America.

Democratic Party officeholders
and county party officials may
be prepared to blindly follow
Obama off the cliff, like Lemmings
on their way to their doom; but
I do not believe that rank and
file Democrats, who love their
country, and their way of life ,are
prepared to join the Lemmings.

A vote for Ted Danz is a vote for
a successful local small businessman
who is a sincere candidate, but who
lacks the perspective, knowledge
communication skills and message
required of one who would be an
independent leader, rather than
a  GOP party follower in the  U S
House of Representatives.

Being a successful small businessman
does not, in the case of Danz, translate 
into being an effective Representative
in Congress, at this critical time in
the history of our Nation.

We can not depend on the media to
let you know that I am a declared
write in candidate for Congress and
that I have a substantive web site.

It is up to you and to me to pass
the word, to all whom we know,
by telephone, internet and personal

The media pays lip service to campaign
reform, but is caught up in pay to play
relying on the cash  jackpots put up by
special interests  fund candidates, who
buy media air time and print.

The media will deny this, but the fact
is few newspapers, tv and radio stations
can survive without the annual infusions
of candidate and special interest cash.

Local landscapes are littered with signs
that have no message other than the
names of candidates and, sometimes,
the public offices they seek.

Most candidate web sites contain
pleas for cash, but very little
substance on vital issues.

The "debates" that appear on tv
and candidate voter guides that
appear in print  do not offer much

The internet puts you and me in

Pass the word to family, neighbors
and friends who are not connected
to the internet.

In conclusion, all or part of 7
counties: Albany, Schenectady
Schoharie, Montgomery, Fulton
Saratoga and Rensselaer are in
the 21st Congressional District.

Ballots in all of the above provide
a write in space at  the bottom of
the paper ballot and the bottom
of the column for Representative
in Congress.

Just write in (print) my name


taking care to stay within the
lines bordering the write in space.

In Albany and Schenectady Counties
voters have to fill in (darken) the oval
that appears in the write in space, in
order to cast a complete, valid write in

In the other counties,  just the write in
is all that is required.

I will be out and about the 21st District
meeting voters and emailing my message.

I am not asking you for a dime - just
pass the word about my write in candidacy
and web site, to all you know.

Together, we will make a major step
toward restoring the Constitutional
Representative form of government
we inherited from the Founders, and
which is essential to the our survival
our descendants  and future generations.

Pass the word to all you know.

Thank you.

2010 IS 1775

The peasantry is suffering excessive
taxation without representation.

Sir Sheldon, leader of the colonial
legislature says the landed peasantry
can wait for property tax relief until
a new colonial governor (Prince
Andrew ,or, maybe, Carl the Hammer?)
is installed, next year.

Tory Loyalist,  Squire McEneny,
Member of the colonial legislature
dances to the tunes played by Sir
Sheldon and King Obama.

The Squire supports Sir Sheldon's
sugar tax, Obamacare and King
Obama's agenda to radically
transform America.

The Squire mocks the peasantry
and declares they are not welcome
in the colonial Capitol:

Lord Tonko, Member of Parliament
is another Tory Loyalist who voted
for Obamacare, Cap and Trade and
reckless "stimulus" spending. Tonko
is a rubber stamp for King Obama's
agenda to radically transform America.

November 2 is Independence Day.

Time for the oppressed peasantry to
get out the pitchforks, rise up and
restore our Constitutional representative
form of government, which we have
inherited from the Founders and which
we are Honor Bound to uphold.

Democrats in Congress and the
NY State Assembly have put off 
addressing  vital tax relief issues
until after the November 2
General Election.

Congressional Democrats have
failed to extend the Bush tax cuts
which benefit all taxpayers.
Extending these tax cuts is essential
to rejuvenating our consumer

NYS Assembly Democrats have failed
to provide real property tax relief  for
homeowners and businesses.

In the City of Albany, voters approved
a 3.9 school tax increase in May 2010.

City homeowners received school
property tax bills in late August
containing a 10 percent increase
payable by September 30.

Homeowners and businesses are facing
a combined city/county property tax
bill including a 22-14 percent increase
payable by January 31, 2011.

Democrats in Congress and the NYS
Assembly are playing politics with
people's lives,  letting taxpayers swing
in the wind.

Democrats in Congress and the NYS
Assembly will pay dearly for this at
the polls, November 2, 2010.

No tax relief. No vote!

Thanks to voters in other states, it
is likely that the Democrats will
lose control of the House and Senate
November 2.

And so, they should because the
111th Congress has not represented
the will, or interests, of the people.

This Congress has been a rubber
stamp for the Obama-Pelosi-Reid
agenda to fundamentally (radically)
transform America.

Obamacare, reckless spending
failure to extend the "Bush" tax cuts
Cap and Trade legislation, Amnesty
for the tens of millions of illegal aliens
who have invaded our land, applauding
tin horn politicians like the Presidents
of Mexico and Iran, when they come
to America, and publicly deride America
and all Americans. The list goes on.

This Congress has allowed President
and the Courts to circumvent the
U S Constitution.

November 2 , American voters, will
restore Congress to it's proper
Constitutional role as the legislative
branch of our federal government.

What does this mean for New York?
Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand
will be minority Senators. Paul Tonko
and Scott Murphy will be House minority

Andrew Cuomo will be a minority

President Obama will be a lame duck
President, if he isn't impeached in

If New York voters were wise, they
would put aside their partyline voting
security blankets and follow the lead
of voters in the rest of America.

In sum, there is hope for the rest of
America, but the outlook fo the future
in New York is grim.

Joseph P Sullivan, of Albany, independent citizen write in
candidate for Representative in Congress, 21st District
said, today, that the Democratic Congress has screwed
senior citizens once again - no social security COLA's for

Sullivan calls on Congress to exempt seniors from the annual
RMD (required minimum distributions) from their IRA's, or
in the alternative, exempt those RMD's from federal income
taxes, if those RMD's are used to pay property taxes.

In the City of Albany, seniors make up a large share of the
one-third of housing units that are owner occupied .

Albany seniors saw their school property tax bill, which was
due this past September 30, increase by 10 percent.
City and county property taxes are due in January 2011 and
together, are projected to increase by a combined 22 percent.

All these tax increases hit during the winter heating season.

Add to all this, Obamacare kicks in, with higher insurance
premiums, higher co pays, and other, yet to be realized
negative impacts on medicare.

Add to this that Congress has failed to extend the so called
"Bush" tax cuts, which benefit all taxpayers and are the
key to economic recovery.

How, are seniors on limited, fixed incomes, particularly those
who are homeowners, struggling to cope with skyrocketing
property tax bills and higher winter heating costs - to survive?
asks Sullivan?

Senior citizens throughout the 21st District, which includes all
or part of the counties of Albany, Montgomery, Schenectady

impacted by the failures of government at the local, state and

NY Governor Paterson and NYC Mayor
Bloomberg are on the right trail regarding
the food stamp program, but don't go far

How many of us stand in supermarket
checkout lines and witness blatant abuse
and misuse of the food stamp program.

Overweight women, wearing jewelry
with carts full of junk food paid for
with food stamps.

Outside the market they load up late
model vehicles and drive away.

Then, there are the abuses not so
easily observed- the use of food stamps
as underground currency to purchase
other goods and services, including
drugs, cars, illegal guns etc.

The food stamp recipients then go
to the local food pantries to obtain
free food.

The solution is to return to a commodity
based food program for low income

When I was a student, with a wife and
2 small children, attending the University
of Wisconsin, on the Korean  G I Bill, we
received a monthly box of surplus food
commodities including staples, like
butter, cheese, powdered milk, flour
dry beans and peas, rice and peanut butter.

We were glad to receive this monthly
box of staples because it allowed us to

Margaret learned to bake bread. We
thought we were living well.

Returning to a commodity staple food
distribution system for the poor will
benefit both the poor and local farmers
who provide the staples.

Include milk, potatoes, turnips, carrots
cabbage, apples, eggs in the program.

The poor will eat healthier and learn
to cook. Local farmers will be able to
continue and expand their farm operations
stay in production, preserving farms
farming and farmers to feed our growing
urban populations, now and in the future.

It is a gloomy, rainy day in New York
but the sun is shining elsewhere in

The political scene in New York is as
gloomy as the weather.

Mick , Paddy and me were pondering
options for voting on November 2.

For whom do we vote?

In the contest for Governor, Andrew
appears to have the edge, not because
of his enrollment or positions on issues
but because Carl Paladino is behaving
like Napoleon at Waterloo. 

Duke has lost it too, and is in rehab
undergoing anger management training.

Mick and Paddy are very wise creatures
with very forgiving natures. They don't
hate the Grand Ayatollah of  Iran for his
Dog Fatwah. Nor, have they written off
Carl for Governor.

Mick and Paddy are quite astute when
it comes to the political scene in New York
as well.

Here is their assessment:

Campaign 2010 is a train wreck in
New York.

Anyone who aspires to be Governor now
in New York has to be mad, or at the very
least delusional.

Neither Andrew, nor Carl, by themselves
can save New York, or us.

Andrew has a message but it is not
believable. More of the same old
sanctimonious rhetoric and pandering
to the party base.

Carl has no message other
than he is going to come to Albany
with a baseball bat, clean house and
take out the trash.

So, what are voters to do?

A vote for Andrew is a vote for more
of the same.

Andrew may be elected Governor
but he will come to wish he had run
for re-election as AG.

You know the old saying.."be careful
what you wish for  (aspire to)"...

So, voters are left with the option of
a protest vote. You know.. anybody but

Who then? The Ho, or others? No!

Reward,  Rino GOP and Conservative Party
leaders who conspired to promote Rick Lazio?

What then?

Support Carl Paladino and other candidates
who have the Independent Taxpayers ballot

This is a logical protest vote which sends
a message to politicians who survive the
November 2 elections- that

1. Property tax relief is the priority need
at the local and state levels. This need will
be met, not by a phoney tax cap, or a
circuit breaker, but by complete overhaul
of education in New York. Zero based
school budgets for the next three years.
Reductions in spending for education.
Consolidation of city schools with city
governments, establishment of one tax roll
payable once a year, to fund both; return
to K-8 neighborhood schools, and making
mayors/city councils responsible/accountable
for city the operation/performance of city

Completely overhauling and streamlining
the State Education Department, including
more local flexibility and control of school
curriculums which lead to graduating
students who are productive members of
society and informed citizen voters.

2. Sending a message to Congress:

a) Extend  all the so called "Bush" tax cuts
that benefitted all taxpayers and hold the
key to economic recovery at the local, state
and national levels.

b) No VAT tax.

Mick and Paddy have concluded that
despite the  hopelessness of the political
scene in New York - there is still hope.

Americans, in other states, will restore
our representative, Constitutional form
of government.

The Democrats will lose control of
Congress, derailing the Obama agenda
to radically transform America and the
Democrats will lose control of the
NY State Senate.

Balance will be restored to our national
and state governments.

Even if Andrew, Chuckie ,  Tonko and
some of the others survive - they will be
in the political minority.

So, it is up to the voters to take charge.

Dogs can't save the world.

Government can't save us. We must save
ourselves and our government.

In the end, America, all Americans
New York and all New Yorkers, will
be the better for this.
