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
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
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
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.

SULLIVAN POSITIONS ON ENERGY - ENERGY IS
ESSENTIAL TO ECONOMIC RECOVERY, JOB CREATION,TRANSPORTATION AND
OUR WAY OF LIFE.
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
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

More money is not the way to
better educational outcomes.
