As Street Easy "president," I hereby endorse Carl Paladino for governor of New York.
Carl will do a lot of great things for New York. For instance, through his proposed Dignitiy Corps, unemployed and poor peopel will be sent to live in unused state prisons to learn hygene. No longer will you have to sit next to a smelly person on the subway who last took a bath during the Eisenhower administration.
Carl will take over the Ground Zero mosque site through eminent domain.
And nobody will mess with good old Governor Carl since he has a handgun permit and carries heat everywhere he goes.
And finally, Carl will keep us etnertained throughout his term as governor through his colorful e-mails.
He's got my vote. Or maybe I'll just write in my mother. She's recently mastered sending emails.
Go Tea party!
reminds me of the silliness they call stimulus
CNSNews.com) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.
The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.
I voted for Carl Paladino. I was happy to discover I was in the majority.
cutting taxes on manufacturing
eliminating state legislature pension plans and life time health care coverage
doesn't sound so bad to me.
Go TEA PARTY!
how do i vote to cut out riversider?
Its the social issues that kill any hope the tea party would ever have with me. A sea of white faces saying Obama is a racist and fearful of basically all things black, mexican, muslim, gay, or related to several academic disciplines including but not limited to history, geology, physics, astronomy, biology, and a few other things keep me from re-loadin' with Sarah Palin.
Sorry, I will take my marginal tax rate going back up to Clinton-era rates in exchange.
I find it generally funny how so many "libertarians" are so gung-ho to trample on so many hard-fought civil liberties. All of which are worth more to me than a little extra pocket change. (And I am one who would in fact get hit by Obama's tax plan.)
Jason, this talk that the tea-party is racist , is non-sense. They're no more racist than the Democrats.
You've been listening to to much keith Oberman and Rachel Maddow
I'm voting for Paladino.
A vote for Cuomo is a vote for the status quo, same old stuff.
And so...what's a vote for paladino?
I'm no fan of cuomo ... But are we really at he point where a lunatic is better?
the only good government...
is a lunatic government!!!
go tea party!!!
No riversider, I can hear and see and read Newt, Dnesh, Briebart, the various tea party organization heads, and yes paladino directly. No need for a filter. Mexicans, Muslims, the new black panther party, Shirley sherrod, gays, Obama the Kenyan colonial hating communist Muslim who is a racist, mine sotamayer. Etc. Saying that liberals caused 911, as dnesh and coulter do. Etc. There words indict them. The fact that Dick Army is using affirmative action to try and get more non-white and Jewish leaders and participants speaks volumes of irony.
"Jason, this talk that the tea-party is racist , is non-sense. They're no more racist than the Democrats."
There was a tea party table set up all summer across the street from a hamptons train station which had Obama posters with Hitler mustaches and others with monkey references. NO, that's totally NOT racist. (sarcasm too subtle?)
And Reverand Wright was a Democrat. Don't tar everyone with the same brush.
ynotie29, I did a search on the web and could not find a story that covered the event you mentioned. I find it hard to believe the NY Times would let that pass. Could you post a link. FWIW, I'm voting for Cuomo (the lesser of two poor choices).
"eliminating state legislature pension plans and life time health care coverage"
There is no such thing as life time health coverage you dimwit. Public employees only have coverage until theya re Meidcare eligible.
Blacks vote for what's good for blacks. Democrats give them affirmative action (which is pro-black racism), and welfare benefits (two-thirds of black babies are born to single mothers). The Tea Party will never be as pro-black as Democrats so you will rarely see a black person in the Tea Party. If whites acted the way blacks did, liberals would scream RACIST!!! but blacks are allowed to act like that because they are considered a victimized minority.
let the lifelong workers starve, sore-covered in our parks and on our streets
let this example speak to the lazy ememployed leeches of today
The Tea Party is more pro-worker than Democrats, because the Tea Party is most likely to support immigration reduction. Immigrants (both legal and illegal) increase the labor force which drives down wages and creates unemployment. Basic supply and demand.
Bob_d proves my point with his post.
jason, you can keep ridiculously distorting the views of your opponents in the debate, if your goal is to continue to make yourself look completely foolish.
And you support Cuomo? The man who pushed subprime lending as good policy? Cuomo who has accomplished . . . what exactly?
> As Street Easy "president,"
Just like the homeless guy who calls himself "mayor" of the block.
Mets, there was no actual 'event'. My family's summer home is in Shinnicock, and the closest town center is in Hampton Bays. We do all of our grocery shopping there, and tea party members had an info table set up any day the weather permitted.
I never stopped to talk to any of them since I was so disgusted by their posters.
Saying blacks vote democratic because of affirmative action - which was ceased by NIXON and supported by Ford, Reagan and both Bushes OR because we are on welfare is racist, yes.
...then saying unemployment is due to illegal immigrants is just beyond silly. Ergo, people who say things like this - or that all abortion should always be illegal or that we should teach creationism in school - etc - just will not get my vote.

Face it America is Fed up with politicians who don't get it. The Democrats thought the country was tilting left when they voted form Obama but in reality just wanted to red rid of Bush. The tea part/libertarian movement(i'm not quite sure who we're voting for) is really just one big Howard Beal moment(except were all Howard Beal.

Bush was not running, it was McCain/Palin.
Depends who you ask.....
Former U.S. Senator Al D'Amato (R-NY) on Fox news:
"GOP strategist Jack Burkman said that the United States Postal Service employs unskilled Nigerians, and at one point said that "most of these guys working in the post office should be driving cabs." Former U.S. Senator Al D'Amato (R-NY) rebuked Burkman by stating, "You are a nasty racist. ... That's a bunch of bullshit. And you should be ashamed of yourself and have your mouth washed out. What the hell are you talking about?"
After Burkman tried to interrupt D'Amato to defend his remarks, the former senator said, "Shut up, I've listened to your racist bullshit." "
See the video of the exchange here. Hmmmm. WHat I say about the tea partiers is just my imagination? Hmmmm.
Alphonse D'Amato on Carl Paladino:
'Paladino's radical, divisive, and disturbing record isn't setting well with one of New York's most famous Republicans -- former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato. "He is dangerous, at the least, he is mean spirited and he tries to divide people," D'Amato told WCBS 880′s Peter Haskell. Along with former New York City Mayor Ed Koch and former State Comptroller Carl McCall, D'Amato also signed his name to an open letter declaring Paladino unfit for office:
The victory of Carl Paladino in the Republican Primary was a disappointing day for all New Yorkers. This state has a long history of electing highly qualified, forward-looking statewide candidates -- both Democrats and Republicans. Yesterday, however, anger overcame reason and enabled a fringe element to choose the Republican nominee. The end result was the selection of Mr. Paladino"
Here are some signs held up at a very recent tea party rally.
[FreedomWorks' September 12 rally on the National Mall]
Scroll through those and tell me these are not bigots. What is hilarious is Dick Army used AFFIRMATIVE ACTION to have more black, hispanic, and jewish speakers, and has flat-out said they need to diversify the Tea Party. I thought the tea party hated affirmative action?
NY Gubernatorial Candidate Carl Paladino’s Racist and Sexist Email History
Read it and weep. Yeah, this guy will not get my vote, not now, not ever.
With sources like this who can argue? WTF???
'With sources like this who can argue? WTF???"
You clearly did not even click on the link to the mediamatters site. It has photographs. Of actual tea party people. Holding actual racist signs. Photos taken by widely used wire services like the AP.
Paladino does not dispute the content of ANY of the widely disseminated emails he sent.
Here is the exact same information from Rupert-muroch owned WSJ:
"[Former GOP governor] Pataki on Paladino
'I don't think he is fit for public service. He made transferred emails back and forth that were racist, homophobic, misogynist."
So to be clear, I posted VIDEO from Fox news from D'Amato and a story from the WSJ. I am not a social conservative. I am very liberal socially. You keep arguing - what? Riversider, are you claiming CP is NOT a social conservative? That O'Donnel, DeMint, and so one are NOT global warming denying creationists who are against gay rights and for school prayers? You are in some fantasy world if you think those are not their views.
Another VIDEO for you to see the candidte say it for her self:
"O'DONNELL: A lie, whether it be a lie or an exaggeration, is disrespect to whoever you're exaggerating or lying to, because it's not respecting reality.
MAHER: Quite the opposite, it can be respect.
IZZARD: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, 'do you have any Jewish people in your house?' and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler.
O'DONNELL: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that!"
MAHER: God is not there. Hitler's there and you're there.
O'DONNELL: You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.
At the end of the show, O’Donnell also proclaimed that “we took the Bible and prayer out of public schools, now we’re having weekly shootings practically.” Watch here:
Silly video of a very naive almost 30 year old. The take-away might be don't vote for candidates who think these T.V. forums are a good idea. Have not followed her career, but hope she's grown otherwise another bad Senator... won't be the first.
Jason is your posting of O'Donnell supposed to suggest something regarding Christie? The two candidates are night and day. Sounds like a Democratic tactic, unless you just felt like you needed to discuss a weird candidate.
You complete idiot.
Check out the name of this thread and reread jason's posts and it should be obvious even to you why he is providing these links.
"Jason is your posting of O'Donnell supposed to suggest something regarding Christie?"
No, I have been complaining about the Tea Party in general, and you all are saying "stop lying about the tea party being loons". She is another tea party candidate. You are a bit daft, this is not a Christie thread. I have said nothing about Christies. Its palidono and all the other tea party candidates.
Paladino is racist. Even Google says he is racist. You know how Google predicts your search query while your still typing it? Well, anytime I type Carl Paladino, Google immediately suggests "Carl Paladino racist" Go figure.

Its JUST "Paladino", not his first name, and "racist" moves up and down the list. Its currently sixth. Google changes the order based on what has been searched most often most recently.
Yes, that's it. I was lazy and just typed his last name since I figured there are not too many other Paladinos in the news right now.
the president was joking I assume.
The fact that Pataki and Damato both call him a racist is a bit more problematic. The most recent GOP NYS governor AND Senator say this guy is a whack job who is racist, sexist, homophobic, and unfit for office. This sort of helps my argument just a smidge more than Google.
is a government run by whacko racist homophobe flirters-with-satanic-cults
the koch's are playing these tea party fools like violins
Wow! Cuomo is clearly over-reacting based on this press-release...
"So Andrew, for the first time in your life be a man," Paladino wrote. "Don't hide behind Daddy's coattails even though he pulled strings to advance your career every step of your way. Come out and debate like a man.
"Because no one inherits the New York governorship - you have to earn it."
"If a guy says you have no cojones, how do you punch him back, call him an a--hole?" the Democratic gubernatorial candidate fumed in a secret talk to his team, one insider said.
"We have all this stuff [on Paladino] and we're on the defensive," Cuomo groused, the insider added.

I don't think Cuomo is over-reacting one bit. Palidino has and will say far more outrageous and vile thigns about his opponents than any democrat save maybe Kucinich or that dude from Florida ever would. In a way, he is like McCain was in the AZ primary - running against someone willing to toss grenades when all he can do is spray water in Carl's eyes like he is a bad kitty.
Who knew Cuomo had a war council?
ALBANY - Stung by Carl Paladino's below-the-belt attacks, an angry Andrew Cuomo summoned his war council on Monday to figure out how to fight back against his slash-and-burn GOP rival.

Almost every candadite for major office has a cabel of advisors. You think Fiorina, Meg Whitman, Rick Perry, or Jim DeMint don't? If so you are a complete moron.
Apparently Crown Prince Andy is in trouble.
A new poll has Republican Carl Paladino within striking distance of Democrat Andrew Cuomo as voters say they want to elect someone who will stop the circus in Albany.
Wednesday was supposed to be Cuomo’s day as he picked up the endorsement of New York City’s notoriously independent mayor, Michael Bloomberg, in the race for governor.
But a new poll changed that because it turned Cuomo’s once comfortable front-runner status on its head.
old news redbaiter
the left-leaning nypost spun it this way...today
"New poll shows Cuomo with 33-point lead over Paladino"
sorry to disappoint--i know palladino's your guy
some drink kool aid--you keep guzzlin that tea!!!
One poll out of like 30 does not yet a trend make....not yet anyway.
actually don't really know Paladino, but not a fan of Cuomo.
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer said he will back Democrat Andrew Cuomo come November, but it sure didn’t sound like much of an endorsement.
“Everybody knows that behind the scenes that he’s the dirtiest, nastiest political player out there,” Spitzer said of Cuomo Thursday.
Dirty? Nasty? We are talking about politicians, aren't we?
Who cares what Spitzer has to say. He road his daddy's bankroll through Princeton, Harvard Law and finally Albany. Funny he never got the "thou shalt not pay for expensive hookers" lecture. Oh well. Wasn't his best buddy in college Jim "the money you have with Bear Stearns" is safe.
I'm looking for a reason to not vote for Cuomo. Why couldn't the republicans have put up a candidate like Governor Christie? I can't believe I'm envious of New Jersey.
Compared to Paladino he is Erma Bombeck times Miss Manners.
Paladino's love child. Family values.
Not at ALL a double standard. Not at all.
"New York Republican gubernatorial nominee Carl Paladino alleged Tuesday that Democrat Andrew Cuomo was unfaithful to his ex-wife years ago, a stunning accusation that validated his earlier prediction that the race would be getting nastier.
Paladino offered no proof of his claim, despite requests for substantiation, and he made it minutes after angrily declaring his 10-year-old daughter—a child from his own affair 10 years ago—off limits to the press. The tea party-backed Republican had publicly revealed her existence when he declared his candidacy earlier this year."

Spitzer rocks! As attorney general he did good work.
He screwed up as Governor, but does anyone not recognize that what went down was pay-back?
Let's keep it in perspective folks. Greenberg and others were not clean.
Now lets remember, the NY Post is the PRO-Tea Party paper! And Paladino STILL treats them like shit. Wow, this guy is something else. Watch the video.
"There is no such thing as life time health coverage you dimwit. Public employees only have coverage until theya re Meidcare eligible. "
man, stop with the names already.
The dimwit is the person who things that because its got another program name, we aren't paying for it.
If I call them something else, am I not paying taxes anymore?
Yeah, I really think we need some more of those awesome Democratic politicians in office in New York.
Lets elect Hevesi!
Lets get Charlie Rangel in there!
Cuomo isn't a whole lot better, and he's supposed to clean this up?
Oh, it gets better. This man is unfit for any office, period. (Which by the way is what pretty much every GOP pol in the State has already said.)
"Paladino Attacks Gays in Brooklyn Speech...
...The Republican candidate for governor, Carl P. Paladino, told a gathering in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Sunday that children should not be “brainwashed” into thinking that homosexuality was acceptable, and criticized his opponent, Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo, for marching in a gay pride parade earlier this year....
...“I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option — it isn’t....
...A recent New York Times/CNN poll found that 58 percent of people in New York were in favor of gay marriage...."
but wait..give carl a break..at least he's in line with fellow repub's on some key items---consistency can be a good thing:
and elsewhwere--i cant believe you just cant conced that paladino is a very special whack job
must we equivocate??
with you stuy education and all......
Generally i'm a democrat (lol actually i'm not as although i pay tax here i dont get to vote here) and i dont really know Paladino but Cuomo is an ass.
Most people wouldn't know a nntp server if it hit them on the head but it is the how and what this ass did that i have issues with.
"Paladino: I Did Not Say What I Said About 'Homosexuals' (VIDEO)"
I like this guy if we can have less government in our lives. If we have more freedom then homosexuals don't need to worry, they can be on their own doing their thing with less government being involved but that also means they have to be on their own like every other person. Not telling the rest of us what they want or don't want. Just do you thing. I'll do my thing. And less government for both of us is a good thing.
The government telling gays they cannot be school teachers, (a battle won 30 years ago), serve in the military, adopt kids, or and yes, get married (58% of New Yorkers support the latter) is not LESS government, its more government.
Well if you say that the school teacher issue was solved 30 years ago, aren't we supposed to be dealing with real problems of today? If 58% of New Yorkers support marriage and 100% of New Yorkers want more jobs.
Carl Paladino: An Evan Mecham for the 21st Century
"Well if you say that the school teacher issue was solved 30 years ago, aren't we supposed to be dealing with real problems of today?"
And yet Paladino (and Jim DeMint and other Tea Partiers) don't want gay teachers in schools. Merely saying some citizens do not deserve equal rights - literally Carl's words, make him unfit for office, and unfit for any libertarian to support.
Did he say that he wants to end gay teachers?
But it doesn't matter. We need jobs and our economy. When people are back making money and with supporting their families, then the rest will improve and no body will care about all of the minor issues so that is when the rest of the agenda can get through.
What will paladino do about jobs?
"Did he say that he wants to end gay teachers?"
DeMint, absolutely. Paladino? Its hard to read "I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option — it isn’t,”" can be read much differently. In terms of ANY thing having to do with gays.
carl paladino has been a huuuge beneficiary of government largesse and faaatttty pork extraordinaire
he'd be a complete non-event were it not for the money he's made based purely on GOVERNMENT programs
you gotta love that his driver served time for dui---and, yeah, i know thre's so much more, but this little detail just cracks me up
What I hear blah blah blah blah and a moron behind that. Paladino is a retard, and so the people who thinks that he will do as he promised... Let me check what Bush promised 10 years ago...
"Let me check what Bush promised 10 years ago..."
Bad example. Bush was nice to Dems from time to time, and got a few of them to vote his way on major bills - Carl has already destroyed any chance he has of working with the dem majority in Albany, and says he absolutely will not cooperate with them, or even with a large number of the moderate GOPers. How will he get ANYTHING done?
so paladino promises to clean up albany and rid it of "special interests". yet on the campaign trail he speaks to an interest group and gives a speech they wrote for him! hey carl that's the way to be your own man!
Albany is disfunctional. Getting things done may not be pro-growth.
Even Rockefeller drug laws, how long did the get it done Albany take to get rid of those laws?
Paladino won't go away. Even if he loses, he'll still be there bashing and battling Cuomo and Silver and others. Then with Spitzer back to criticize the governor out of spite, New York will be an interesting government for years to come.
...AND he walks it back all the way.
...probably because he rented space to two gay clubs, his son ran a gay club, and said gay club had floats in those "disgusting" gay pride parades. A bit of a hypocrite.
The Gays in Buffalo? Sounds just bestial.
Carl is colorful. I don't care. Governor Cuomo is a guarantee of business as usual; NY continues to have high taxes and only investment bankers can afford to live her.
Paladino MIGHT be able to change something. He has my support. Cutting taxes by 10% and wasteful government spending by 20% is a lot more important than whether he shoots off his mouth.
has paladino offered any concrete suggestions to accomplish what you are supporting? certainly you would agree that his declining to take his kids to gay pride parades will not change taxes or expenditures?
No, but certainly YOU would agree that telling other people how to parent their children will do whatever it is that people hope Paladino would have been achieving, had he ever had the slightest chance of being elected.
I hope we can get more jobs. That is more than 1 in 10 New Yorkers especially when you count for the whole improved economy.
