ON TO NOVEMBER 6    (With Updates)

The primaries are over. The progressives
have had their day and chosen their
standard bearers for the November 6
general election.

The contest for the 109th Assembly
District was intense.

Patricia Fahy emerged the nominee
of the Democrats. No suprise, a woman
in a field of 4 men. Pat got the votes of
the same crowd that votes approval of
the Albany City School District budget.
Her vote was enhanced by collaborating
with the campaigns of Senator Breslin
and DA Soares.

In round numbers Pat received 5,000
of the approximate 13,000 votes cast
in the Democratic primary in the 109 AD.

The Democratic candidates spent
a huge sum of cash in that primary.

On the issues, they differed little.

Compare Fahy and Sullivan responses
to questions- TU Voter Guide:

Disregard TU error in spelling of
Joseph and omission of photo.

So, now it is on to November 6 when
the rest of the 109 AD's 98,000 voters
will have their chance to choose who
shall represent them in the NYS
Assembly, 109th District.

The dilemma for Pat Fahy is
does she run with or away from
Barack Hussain Obama? Being
a partyline Democrat, we know
what she will do.

Gas is above four dollars a gallon.
Food prices are high and will go
still higher. People are out of
work. Prospects for jobs are
bleak. The number on food stamps
is at a record high.

This President has failed to secure
our borders allowing tens of
millions of illegal aliens to run
amok in America, among them
jihadists who are sworn to destroy

Our entire electoral system is
at risk. Millions of illegals will
be voting November 6 and the
votes will be counted electronically
by a George Soros firm in Spain.

Our Nation is deeply divided by
a President who set out to radically
transform America . A President
whose divide and conquer strategy
has brought America to the brink
of disaster.

The Muslim world is afire because
of the foreign policy blunders and
perceived weakness of President
Obama and his Secretary of State

This election is about the survival
of America, our Constitutional
Republic, our way of life, and the
survival of each and every American.

Our life, liberty and pursuit of
happiness, as well as our security
economy and way of life are on the line.

There will be no second chances.
November 6 is D Day for America.

Enrolled Democrats are the
majority in the 109th AD as well
as in New York State.

Our fate, and theirs, will be
determined by how they vote
November 6. 

Will they put the survival of
America, and their own survival
above blind partyline voting?

Will the local media do the same?

We shall know the answer in
five weeks time.

This is no election to behave
like a Lemming.

                       NYS Assembly
                       District 109

Where I stand on the issues:

1. SECURITY is the priority. Without
it our  Liberty, way of life and economy
are done.

The home front has become the front
line in the war of terror by those who
are sworn to destroy us.

NYC is a major terror target. The NYPD
is doing it's best to safeguard the city.

Upstate police and fire agencies must do
the same.

Osama most recently directed his minions
to hit soft targets where security is lax.

Locally, that means The Capitol city
the port and the electric power grid
among other targets.

Governor Cuomo should expand, train
and arm the NY Guard, the state defense
force, to assist with security, particularly
when the NY National Guard is activated
for duty elsewhere in the nation or over

All citizens have a security role to play.
Keep and eye on your neighborhood
where you work, go to school and your

3. ENERGY is essential to our way
of life,  for expanding traditional
manufacturing / agriculture and
for transportation.  Energy
development is the basis for jobs
and economic recovery. Tap
natural gas and 765 KV Quebec
to NYC hydropower line for
home heating, manufacturing
agriculture and transportation.

Rebuild conventional rail road net
to move freight/people. Build light
rail to connect cities, suburbs and
rural areas.

Search energy/transportation posts
this site.

ENERGY development is the key
to putting 23 million plus unemployed
back to work.

More people working is essential to
preserving social security and medicare.


1. Support expanded shale natural gas drilling in NYS provided
groundwater, wells, reservoirs are protected and monitored.

Have drillers contribute to a fund to provide remediation/compensation
in the event of accidents.

Earmark use/sale of extracted natural gas for New York, New England
and Canada. No exports to China.

Tapping New York's vast gas resources will stimulate an economic
boom and jobs akin to that produced by building the Erie Canal in the
early 1800's.

It is essential to conserve natural gas resources for domestic use
as a security issue for now and the future.

Northeast winters are cold and survival here impossible without
a reliable source of home heating.

2. Support the 765 kv Quebec to NYC hydro power line provided Albany
Bethlehem, Guilderland and New Scotland can tap into this line to
lower local electric rates and provide reliable, clean electric power
upon which our way of life depends.

3, Support shutting down the twin Indian Point nuclear power plants.

These nuclear plants sit astride the Ramapo geologic fault. Spent
rods are stored, in water, below the plants because there is no
other place to safely dispose of them.

The nuclear disaster in Japan was a natural and man made event.
We should learn from that and not repeat it here.

20 million people live in the shadow of the Indian Point nuclear plants.

The NYC metro area and Hudson Valley could be devastated by a
natural or man made disaster involving the Indian Point nuclear plants

Keep in mind that NYC (and the Indian Point Plants) are a number
one target of the Jihadists who sworn to destroy us, and who have
made the homefront the front line in their war of terror.

4. Support building the Keystone pipeline from Canada to the Gulf
states and a second pipeline to Buffalo. Build more refineries in
both locations. Canada is our ally. We share a common culture
and heritage and our future fates are interdependent.

President Obama's refusual to approve the Keystone pipeline
is a major blunder. He has kept gas and food prices high as
result. And, now, China is gaining control of Canadian shale
oil - a major strategic security blunder by Obama!

President Obama's policies relating to oil drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico and Anwar have produced similar results, inhibting our
economic recovery and creating a perilous security risk for

5. Grow corn for food and feed, not to produce biofuels.

Ethanol is bad for engines, particularly small engines like
lawn mowers and snowblowers.

Food prices are poised to rise out of sight, after the November
election, because of the drought that has devastated America's
corn and wheat breadbasket regions.

Growing corn to produce ethanol will rapidly deplete soils
that should be conserved to grow food and feed in a system
of crop/field rotation that rests and replentishes the land.

46 million Americans now rely on food stamps. Food stamps
will be worthless without soils, farms and farmers to produce

6. Support clean coal technology. America has the largest
coal reserves of any nation- enough to continue our way of
life for centuries.

Coal produces most of the electric power that our way of
life depends upon.

Do not export coal to China. Conserve it and use it for our
own economic needs long term.


Recall that gas was less than two
dollars a gallon before Obama took

  4. Education and Learning

More money is not the way to
better educational outcomes.

Get the federal government out
of education. End NCLB and
Race To The Top. Scale back
State Ed Dept. More local
control over curriculum and
special education.

In Albany, merge city schools
with city government with the
Mayor responsible and accountable
for school performance. Return to
a K-8 neighborhood school system.
One property tax roll to support
both schools and city government.

Oppose consolidation of city school
district with town school districts.

This recommendation may appear
Dec 1, after election, when Governor's
Education Task Force reports on plans
to completely revamp education in NY.

Attitude/behavior adjustments
on the part of learners/parents

Extend so called Bush Tax Rates
for all, before they expire Dec 31.
Provide real property tax relief
particularly school property tax
relief in the 2013 state legislative


6. UPHOLD the U S and NYS

Every public official takes an
oath to do so, but many violate
or fail to honor that oath.

No circumventing Congress
and the State Legislature by
Executive Orders or judicial

Support the First, Second and
Tenth Amendments to the

Return to strict interpretation
of the Tenth Amendment where
the federal government is limited
to enumerated powers and all
else the domain of the States.

This is essential for true unfunded
mandate relief.

7.  ENGLISH is our official
language. Make it so in education
business and elections.

Glorification of diversity divides
rather than unites our Nation.

We are a Nation of legal immigrants!

Secure borders are essential for
the survival of our Nation.


Require photo voter ID's be
presented when voting, and
that all  county boards of
elections  ascertain that all
existing voters are living,
are bonafide residents and
U S Citizens. Require similar
proofs of all new voters.

Verify that college students
registering to vote locally
are not registered to vote
in their home counties.



Victory in Afghanistan is not
possible as long as Pakistan
provides safehaven for al Qaida
and Taliban, and because of
cultural,  historical factors.

Afghanistan is a tribal region
not a nation.

We have trained  and armed
hundreds of thousands of Afghan
Army-Police who are killing our
troops a few at a time.  It is only
a matter of time until they turn
and annihilate our remaining
68,000 troops who are being left
behind after this month's draw
down. Winter is coming just as
it did in 1842.

De Ja Vu! This happened to
an entire British Army in
Afghanistan in the 19th Century.

Search Afghanistan/Commander
In Chief posts this site.

We have a would be Commander
in Chief, who is not looking out for
our troops or our country. Obama
is guilty of dereliction of duty. His
Afghanistan policy is a failure.
Obama is a failure and must be
relieved of command.

How? When? By you the American
voters! November 6th. Vote Obama

Where have all those Bring Home
the Troops Now lawn signs disappeared

Bring them home now, before they
get wiped out in a full blown green
on blue atrocity.

informed votes are the key to the
survival of our Constitutional
Republic, to the Life, Liberty and
Pursuit of Happiness of all.

Do not be brainwashed by a media
that is determined to maintain the
established political regime at the
federal, state and local levels.

Observe. Read. Exchange information
with your peers. Learn. Evaluate. Analyze.

Hard work? Yes, but it is your duty
as an American citizen.

Your survival, depends on it. Do it!

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

SECURITY is the priority issue in
the 2012 elections. Without it our
way of life and economy are done.

Afghanistan is a tribal wasteland
that can not be secured as long as
Pakistan offers safehaven to the
Taliban and Al Qaida, and as long
as our troops are being killed by
those Afghans we are attempting
to train so that they might secure
their own land.

This training effort has cost us 22
billion dollars and the lives of our
valiant troops. For what?

President Obama has announced
the date for our military to withdraw.

Our troops, bound by pc rules of
engagement, are sitting ducks, being
picked off by a cowardly foe.

While they are putting their lives
on  the line, most won't have their
right to vote in the 2012 election
which, in part, is a referendum on
Commander In Chief as well as
Congress and the State Legislature.

That individual has failed to secure
our borders, and by fiat, circumvented
the Congress and U S Constitution to
allow untold numbers of illegal aliens
to vote in the 2012 elections to benefit
his reelection, and the reelection of
those that support him, like our own
Representative in Congress, Paul Tonko
our U S Senators and candidates for
state office here in New York.

The Commander and Chief and his
minions have all violated their oaths of

Our troops and all legal American
voters need to know where you stand
on these and related matters of national
security...Mr Romney because the most
important job of the President is being
Commander In Chief is defending America
and all Americans (including the rabid
leftist partisans on display this week on
television for all the nation and world
to see).

You are not running for CEO!

The 2012 elections are the defining elections
of our lifetimes.

The survival of America, our
Constitutional Republic, Life, Liberty
Pursuit of Happiness, our way of life
and, and of all Americans are on the

What should you be saying? For
starters - bring our troops home
from Afghanistan - now! Deploy them
to secure the Mexican border.

Rebuild our Navy and declare
that the Monroe Doctrine will be
strictly enforced.

Declare that you will uphold
the U S Constitution and will require
that candidates for public office
and appointments, including
the U S Supreme Court, do the same.

President Obama is NOT a nice

In the forthcoming debate will
you will have the opportunity
to address these and other issues
vital to our survival. What you
say, or do not say, will determine
your fate, that of America, and
all Americans.

Hint, put your political hack
advisors out to pasture.

Do a little study of General
George Patton.

No more pussy footing and
political tap dancing!

God help you, America and
all Americans.
