COMMON CORE  BS, MS, PhD

Professor Mather at U Minnesota
many years ago, said " we all know
what BS is. MS is more of the same.
PhD is piled higher and deeper".

Common core is more BS.

THE PORT OF ALBANY

Go to:

Good move. Now, station a full time
Coast Guard Security unit at the port

and

build a refinery to refine the
Dakota oil coming to Albany via
rail.

This will increase the City tax
base, provide good paying jobs
and lower the prices of gasoline
and home heating oil in Albany
and the Capital District.

LEARN ENGLISH

The Times Union editorial of 10/27/13
is one of the TU's best.

http://www.timesunion.com/opinion/article/Editorial-Schools-must-teach-English-4929550.php

Learn English, our national language
and the international language of
commerce and politics.

This means native born Americans
and immigrants too!

Federal and state sponsored
multilingualism 
and glorification of diversity divides
rather  than unites our nation.

Buy American made products, put
America First before blind alliegiance
to any political party, and be a proud
American!  A citizen of the finest nation
on earth.

WHY NOW?

The Times Union editorial calls
for Immigration reform now:

Why now? What's the rush?

http://blog.timesunion.com/opinion/immigration-reform-now/26312/

Read the above editorial  and 
compare it's statements and claims
with the facts regarding illegal 
immigration. 

LA County is exhibit A"

https://www.google.com/search?q=cost+of+illegal+immingration+in+los+angeles+county+estimate+1.6+billion+annually&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb

What about Albany County and City?

Come on TU - give us the facts
on what illegal immigration is
costing taxpayers here!

The Albany Common Council
passed a Resolution in 2007
declaring Albany a sanctuary city
for illegal aliens.

What about respecting the rule
of law?

Illegal aliens are lawbreakers
who have invaded our land
and who continue to break
numerous laws, including identity
theft/fraud and failure of all
males of 18 years and older to
register for the draft.

Read:
http://cis.org/myth-law-abiding-illegal-alien

Put the whole question of
"comprehensive" immigration
reform off til next year so that
it becomes a focus for debate
by those who seek election
or reelection to the House and
Senate.

The future of our Nation and
all American citizens outweighs
a rush to ram through poorly
crafted, flawed legislation like
the Senate bill sponsored by
Senator Schumer.

CAN COMMON CORE

Education is a local-state matter.

Get the Federal government out
of our schools. The Constitution
does not include education among
the enumerated responsiibilities
of the Federal government.

The NY Constitution says that
the State Legislature shall provide
for a system of public education.
Too much power and authority
has been given to the State Education
Department.

Scale back that power and provide
for more local control.

The Governor has no business
imposing a teacher evaluation
system based on mickey mouse
test scores. Repeal this.

Get the federal and state mandates
off our local backs.

The true measure of  educated
persons is found in their behavior
their ability to earn a living and
contribute to society by being
good citizens.

Improving the City schools is
an essential element in the survival
of the City of Albany.

Refer to the Sullivan plan for
Education and City schools as
presented in previous posts
on this website. Search Education
and Learning.

Elect me, and with Mayor Emeritus
Jerry Jennings, together,  we will 
improve the City schools to benefit
all the people of the City including
students, their parents and property
taxpayers.

SEWER TREATMENT PLANTS
REQUIRE GREATER SECURITY

Read:
http://www.timesunion.com/business/article/River-waste-plan-s-target-4914990.php

Don't you think sewer treatment plants
are on the terrorist hit list? 

Blowing up a sewer treatment plant
and key sewer line junctures would
soon make a city unlivable - cholera
would soon become epidemic.

Wise up people.  The terrorist dwell
among us because of our lax legal
immigration policies, failure to
secure our borders, allowing tens
of millions of illegal aliens, including
many Jihadists who are sworn to
destroy America, and all infidels 
(that's you)
who fail to submit to Islam.

And now our fearless Community
Organizer in Chief wants to grant
the whole lot amnesty?

Ironically, before Christmas.
Get the symbolism here?

Whose side is he on? Will the
hapless GOP House cave on this
too.?

If they do kiss your A...... good
bye.

The equally, hapless cast of
Albany Mayoral candidates
haven't a clue.. or the focus on
public safety and security as
the priority issue in this election.

Computerizing city employee
time sheets won't solve Albany's
fiscal problems, nor will that
keep us safe.

Politically correct politicians
blind to the realities of our
lifetime, since 9-11, are leading
partyline Lemming voters over
the cliff to oblivion.

Watch for coming sales on
prayer rugs.

THE LATINO FORUM

Last night the Hispanic Coalition 
of NY and LULAC teamed up to hold
an Albany Mayoral candidate forum.

A very nice, well organized event
that gave attendees a very clear
picture of where the candidates
stand on a number of issues.

Hopefully, some of the audio or
video will surface so that city
voters may learn more about
the candidates.

I believe that that WAMC Radio
may make audio of the forum 
available.

When the candidates were asked
did they speak any Spanish ? I
answered San Patricios. Blank
looks.

After the forum, I asked each
the panelists if they knew who
the St Patricios were. They did
not. 

The San Patricios were Irish
who fought against tyranny
and for freedom of the people
of Latin American Latin
American countries.

Example: Mexico. Listen up-

http://www.songclue.com/video/aIQz3mNxEog

Knowledge of history is a
fundamental prerequisite
for all, particularly those who
look for government to be
the answer to all their needs.

Only one person played
the race card. Would be
candidate Marlon the
Magnificent. An angry, hostile
racist, if ever there was one.

Monica and Nate Lebron
did an outstanding job.

Buenos Dias Amigos.

RX. RELIEF FROM OBAMA
OBAMACARE  AND THE
PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL
AGENDA

The Irish song Cliffs of Dooneen
contains a line saying "the cares
of tomorrow must wait til this
day is done".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRFB6jNGOyM

Enjoy this day. It will not come
again.

The Chieftans traditional music
sets a mood to reflect on the past
and present as well as to ponder
the future.

The O Sullivans are Celts who
left Galicia in Northern Spain
around 500 BC , landing at
Allihies, Beara, West Cork.


Since then they have wandered
the world, but have not forgotten
their heritage while adapting to
new lands and places.

ON THE WATERFRONT
SHEEHAN SPEAKS BUT
SAYS NOTHING AGAIN

http://wnyt.com/article/stories/s3196441.shtml?cat=10114

Why does the media keep giving
coverage to a candidate who talks
but offers nothing of substance?

Just more empty, vague poli-speak!

Developing downtown and the
Albany waterfront requires that
the aging sewer / water system
and utility infrastructure be
rehabilitated to accommodate
increased population and
development.

The 787  elevated maze has to
be torn down before a quake
does the job, or before it falls
down on it's own, being a victim
of excessive  dumping of road
over the years.

All of the above is going to
require massive amounts of
money- money that will not
be available anytime soon
if ever.

Yes, there are things that can
be done in the short term:

1. Build a refinery at the Port
    of Albany to refine Dakota
    oil which reaches Albany
    via rail, and which is shipped
    via the Hudson River, elsewhere.

    This will increase the city
     property tax base, add good
     paying jobs and reduce the
     price of gasoline for the
     entire Capital District.

2. Tap into the 765 KV  Quebec
     to NYC hydroelectric power
     line that will be built in the
     near future. This line will
     pass right through Albany.

    Tapping it will further reduce
     power costsfor homeowners
     hospitals, colleges/schools
     businesses, and stimulate the
     increase of manufacturing
     based on clean, reliable
     energy.

3.  Approve fracking for NY
     natural gas. This will result
     in an economic boom for
     Albany. The Hudson and
     Mohawk Valleys akin the
     the economic impact of
     building the Erie Canal in
     the early 1800's.

     This will result in Albany
     once again serving as a
     major crossroads with
     a focus on manufacturing
     transportation and tourism.

     This will expand the city
      property and sales tax base 
      and provide the needed
      funds to rebuild the aging
      downtown utility infra-
      structure and remove the
      787 maze.

4.   Build a Quincy type market
      on the waterfront and restore
      river boat traffic between
      NYC and Albany to promote
      tourism - get those foreign
      tourists to explore the
      Hudson Valley - America's
      Rhine and all the local
      historical sites that Albany
      and the Capital District have
      to offer.

These things will require a real
leader, with sound ideas, as Mayor
not someone who talks a lot, but
says nothing of substance. 

And, an active Mayor Emeritus
Jerry Jennings, who will (1)
lobby the NYS Congressional
Delegation, Governor and State
Legislature to a) remove federal
and state mandates that burden
the city, city schools and homeowners
and businesses that pay the property
taxes to fund the city and city schools
b) have NYS deliver on the PILOTS
due the City of Albany for the
Harriman State Office Campus
and all other city lands occupied
by NYS.

Additionally, Mayor Emeritus
Jennings will be the City Liaison
with all of  above, to achieve the
consolidation of city schools with
city government. Create one
property tax roll to fund both.
Return to a K-8 neighborhood
school system , with the Mayor
being responsible/accountable
for the city schools. Mayor 
Emeritus Jennings will also
work with the federal and state
education departments to give
Albany more local control
over the city schools, and to
reform the curricula to meet
the needs of our urban students.

These actions with regard to
the city schools, will end the
flight to the suburbs, and attract
people to move back into the
city and rebuild our city
neighborhoods.

DID YOU KNOW?

DID YOU KNOW?         source:www.Irishfreedom.net

that   from 1625 thru 1659 between 50,000 and 100,000 Irish men, women and children were shipped to Barbados  Montserrat, Jamaica and Antigua as slaves.  Another 20,000 plus Irish slaves were sold to English settlers in the American colonies .
The Irish slave trade began when James II of England sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World.  His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were predominantly  Irish.

that more than 7 million Irish immigrants have come to America since the 1600s. This mass migration  transformed Irish society and played a significant role in shaping American politics, religion, culture, and economics during the country's most formative years. More than 40 million people in the United States claim some degree of Irish ancestry.
Ireland’s population decreased dramatically throughout the nineteenth century. Census figures show an Irish population of 8.2 million in 1841, 6.6 million a decade later, and only 4.7 million in 1891.
It is estimated that as many as 4.5 million Irish arrived in America between 1820 and 1930.
Between 1820 and 1860, the Irish constituted over one third of all immigrants to the United States. In the 1840s, they comprised nearly half of all immigrants to this nation.

that the preamble to the Irish constitution reads as follows:
In the Name of the Most Holy Trinity, from Whom is all authority and to Whom, as our final end, all actions both of men and States must be referred,
We, the people of √Čire,
Humbly acknowledging all our obligations to our Divine Lord, Jesus Christ, Who sustained our fathers through centuries of trial,
Gratefully remembering their heroic and unremitting struggle to regain the rightful independence of our Nation,
And seeking to promote the common good, with due observance of Prudence, Justice and Charity, so that the dignity and freedom of the individual may be assured, true social order attained, the unity of our country restored, and concord established with other nations,
Do hereby adopt, enact, and give to ourselves this Constitution.

PROGRESSIVES ARE
NOT DEMOCRATS


Self styled "progressives" have taken
over the Democratic Party leadership.

In Albany, Progressives took over the
the city schools. Now, they seek to
gain control of city government, this
year and county government next year.

Progressives are all about control.

Compare the Democratic Party
Platform of 1864 with the party
platform of today.

Democratic Party Platforms: Democratic Party Platform of 1864

In 1864 upholding the Constitution
states rights and  liberty were key
elements of the Democratic Party
platform.

In the City of Albany, November

Democrats will have the chance
(perhaps, their last chance)
to regain control of their party
by voting Conservative Row C.

The future of the city and their

DREDGING BOONDOGGLE

Dredging the Hudson River PCB's is an
enormous waste of  millions of dollars 
and labor which should have been
allocated to rebuilding the aging 
utility/sewer infrastructure
of Albany and other river towns.

Modernizing this infrastructure and 
taking down the 787 elevated highway
 system are essential prerequisites to

and the Albany waterfront.

Support fracking for ny natural gas
which will be akin to the building of 
the Erie Canal and the resultant
economic expansion of Albany and
the Erie Canal-Hudson corridor that
occurred in the early 1800's.

Build a refinery at the Port of Albany
to refine Dakota oil.

This is where the funds will be found
 to revitalize downtown and the
 Albany waterfront.

LISTEN UP MAGGOTS!

Yes, you party line Democrats
who tow the party line every
election.

Are you paying attention to
what your elected, and wannabe
elected, officials and leaders of
your party are doing?

No funding for veterans benefits or
to families who must bury their sons
lost in Afghanistan this past week.

WWII vets denied access to their
war memorial in Washington DC
but the National Mall is opened
to a rally by illegal aliens with
aid of SEIU and AFL CIO and
about 30 Members of Congress -
none of whom went to defense of
the WWII veterans when the latter
were denied access to their war
memorial.

(Same SEIU that County Exec
Dan McCoy wants to turn over
the county nursing home to)

4 million disabled vets won't get
their disability checks

House and Senate Democrats
block passage of a House CR
that would fund veterans benefits.

Your Community Organizer in Chief
vows to veto the House CR  to fund
veterans benefits,  if it reaches his 
desk.

Tonko (who was among the 164
Democrats who voted to block
the House CR to fund benefits)
See earlier roll call- roll of
dishonor- posted earlier on
this website.

Tonko has endorsed Kathy Sheehan
for Albany Mayor. Sheehan does
not rebuke Tonko or stand up for
veterans and their families.

It is a sorry, pathetic lot of voters
who will still vote Democrat on
November 5, putting party
allegiance before America, our
veterans and their families.

Where have you hidden your
Bring Home The Troops, Now
lawn signs?

SHEEHAN PANS
CITY BUDGET ?

http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Sheehan-pans-proposed-city-budget-4874267.php 

Mayor Jennings deserves praise
not scorn for his 2014 City Budget
proposal which cuts expenses and
spending,  no property tax increase
for homeowners, no lay offs of City
workers and 8 million dollars in
the bank.

Sheehan says it is a "terrible budget"
but offers no constructive alternative.


Computerizing employee time sheets
is a job for a time keeper, not a Mayor.

Albany voters deserve to know what

a Sheehan budget would look like
before  the November 5 election.

Sheehan left open the option that
if elected, she would go before 
Governor Cuomo's  Financial
Restructuring Board.

To do so would essentially make
the City of Albany a ward of the
state and throw public employee
unions under the bus regarding
binding arbitration.

The next Mayor of Albany has
to be a leader who will not sell
out city residents and public
employees to a panel controlled
by the Governor.

Dan O' Connell would never 
have done so. Nor will
Joseph P Sullivan, as Mayor.

Mayor Jennings will be a welcome
and vital partner in a  Sullivan 
administration in City Hall.

As Mayor Emeritus, Jennings
will serve as liaison to the
Governor, State Legislature
and NY Congressional Delegation
to obtain the PILOTS due on
city lands occupied by the
State, including the Harriman
State Office Campus; and to
obtain relief from state and
federal unfunded mandates
that negatively impact the
City and city schools.


Mayor Jennings will serve
as liaison with the city schools
and State Education Department
with the aim of  consolidating
the city schools with the city
government, creating one
property tax roll to fund both
returning to a K-8 neighborhood
school system and making the Mayor
responsible/accountable for the
functioning and performance of
the city schools. In addition, Mayor
Emeritus Jennings will be charged
with developing an urban curriculum
that addresses the needs of city
students, including a meaningful
adult education program.

Mayor Emeritus Jennings will
preside at most public functions
and retain his weekly radio show
on Talk 1300. 

Sheehan can snipe at Jennings.
She can tout her boundaryless
management style, but in the
final analysis, Sheehan offers
no real solutions to the issues
vital to the survival of the City
of Albany and all who call
Albany home.

 Security/Public Safety, 
Emergency/Disaster Preparedness 
Education, Energy and property
tax relief are all addressed in
detail by yours truly.

Straight talk. No vague political
speak here!

Sullivan recognizes and values
the life time  of service of Jerry
Jennings to the  City and people
of Albany.

A vote for Sullivan. November 5
is a vote to keep Jerry Jennings
working for you
