  Interesting Things....                                                  1-25-2018



                    I certainly haven't been doing much blogging lately.  

                               There are several reasons for that.  1) We have a Town Government that is for the most part, behaving itself.   2) Nothing of note has been going on in town.   3)  I'm BUSY. 

                    When there is something to say, you KNOW I will be here, saying it. Which is why I am writing tonight.  The Planning Board has been curious about the lack of action from Stewarts over the past few months. They canceled their appointments with the board and stated that they were temporarily, "On Hold".  So everyone simply assumed that Stewarts was waiting for good weather before proceeding. Not the case, apparently.

                   Somewhere along the line, the company must have met some resistance or received some info about the difficulties they could face by building so close to wetlands.  The new building was planned to be quite a bit farther back from the road than the present building. Yeah, a little close to the wetland and the Wyomanock, but I thought all that had been looked at and approved. Maybe not.  I have it on the word of a very reliable, local business owner and life-long resident, that Stewarts has been surveying the Easy-Mart property. This individual actually accompanied the surveyors to the site and observed the work, so it is no question that this occurred. 

                  Personally, I think it's a great idea.  Not only is it a roomier location, but I sure won't miss the old, Easy-Mart building. Also, the wetland issue becomes moot AND the old Mercier house is saved. For now, anyway. The present Stewarts building will likely be offered For Sale , opening up a good location for another business. (NO Fast-Food Drive-Thrus, PLEEZE!)  If you also despise these drive-thru, junk food stores, now would be a good time to contact the Town Board and ask them about amending the Comprehensive Plan to ban such businesses. Close the barn door BEFORE the horse runs away!

                 In any case, the Easy-Mart site would be ideal for Stewarts, and for Sonny, as he and his wife would like to move closer to their relatives.  Guess we'll have to wait and see.  In the meantime, the former Shed Man building was razed this week in preparation for New Lebanon's SIXTH, Self-Storage business. This is the one being built by Serge Bervy. Coons is done and open, and of course the others have been operating for some time. One on Adam's Crossing Rd., one at the Car Wash, one at Windswept Farm, and another upstairs from China City in the Midtown Mall. SIX.  At least they are much better than those commercial drive-thrus!

                 ###########################################

                  As a lot of you know, I have been working overtime since last February to build a resistance to the 2017, Safe Act requirement to renew Concealed Carry Weapon Permits. (CCWs).  It has been a long, uphill battle, but we are WINNING. 

                  NY State, County and Pistol Clerks have inundated the Governor's Office with complaints about the excessive work involved in the re-cert process. They have neither the training or personnel to handle it. 57 of our 62 County Sheriffs have committed to their opposition to the requirement and have publicly stated that they "Will Not Enforce". Numerous Republican Assembly members have petitioned the Governor for a one year extension to the 1-31-2018 deadline and the failure of those responsible,(i.e the NYSP), to send out the required re-cert notices to ALL New Yorkers who were due to re-cert in 2017.

                 Lawsuits have been filed against Andrew Cuomo and all members of the NY State Assembly who voted in favor of the Safe Act in 2013, on Federal, Constitutional Violations, AND, injunctions are being filed to order that all enforcing agencies STAND DOWN until the issue is heard in court, which could be a year or MORE. In short, there will BE no enactment of the re-cert requirement and no enforcement OF it, for at least a year from February 1, 2018. This gives the Constitution-Abiding People of NY the necessary time to take the entire Safe Act apart and hold those responsible for it, to the fire. They committed numerous crimes in the passage of this pretended legislation, and it is time we make them pay for a change. 

                 It is immoral, illegal, and corrupt to make Felons of decent citizens by holding them to Unconstitutional Legislation, and that is exactly what the Safe Act IS and DOES. It must go, and so must Andrew Cuomo.

                 As one of the three organizers of this mass-resistance, I have been receiving countless emails and phone calls from residents who are unsure of what to do.  They all want to know the numbers of how many people HAVE re-certified and how many were scheduled to in 2017. Right now, the Ball-Park figures from several sources, stand at less than 25% having complied. Keep in mind that many people thought it was a good idea to simply wait until the last minute and then inundate the Pistol Clerks all at once. Cute, but not a very effective message. WE had better ideas, and they are working! 

                 Another interesting thing I have noticed, is that the majority of the people who have contacted me, are over 55 years of age, and of those, about 90% are Christians or at the very least, Bible-Believing folks.  ALL of them, were kids of the 50s and 60s, the people who remember a healthier, much more free and sane, America. It is amazing how many of these people have told me that they live in remote, rural areas, and they "Feel So Alone". Fortunately, I have been able to reassure them about the massive numbers of permit holders who are refusing to comply, AND the fact that they are FAR from alone. There are MILLIONS of us who will not comply THIS year, or any year in the future.

                  These folks have told me that they are subjected to Liberal views at work, or in their own families, and have been berated for their opposition to unconstitutional actions by our government. One man in particular is 76 years old and works for an elementary school. He is so afraid of the Liberals he works with and for, that he uses a false name in his activism and brilliant writings about the Tyranny we are seeing in NY and all across the country. 

                I try to remind these folks that the Liberals are simply indoctrinated,  ignorant of reality, and void of Common Sense, and that it is our DUTY as Patriots, to laugh at them as the fools they are and NEVER fear the government, but to make the government fear US! That is what our founders intended and charged us with preserving. The time has come to put the Governor of NY and the dirty Democrats and Rinos in our Federal Government, in mortal fear of the PEOPLE. Again. In upstate NY in 2018, that is exactly what we are doing.  We have ZERO intention of backing down or letting up until Justice is served upon the Traitors to Constitutional Law.

               Now, of interest to those who Home-School your children or send them to Private Schools, something terrifying happened in Albany today. Beginning this year, ALL schools, including Home and Private, will be FORCED to teach under Common Core Standards! This is not a "Law", it is just being written-in to the State Educational Requirements. Private schools that refuse to comply will lose their licenses, and Home-Schooling parents who do not comply, will be visited by Social Services and risk losing custody of their children. THINK about that !! Is this the kind of thing that happens in a FREE Country? Of course not, but it DOES happen under Communism. Which is but one reason why it is so obvious that the Democrat Party has become the Communist Party. 

              I don't see this newest power-grab gaining much ground. I know a LOT of Home-Schooling moms that I would NOT want to piss-off! A lot of them are the toughest of the tough, farm girls, hunters, preppers, and yes, armed citizens. They will NEVER bow to the King of NY and surrender their kids' minds to the state.  Not gonna happen, especially since the same people fighting the Safe Act and suing Cuomo, will get behind these Moms and stand WITH them! Good Luck, Adolph.

Quad Board-DACA- Trump                     1-30-2018


             Nice Quad Board Meeting tonight. Very few members absent, one of which was E. Brutsch. 

             I like these meetings, because I can be an observer and learn a LOT from the way our boards are working so well together to get things done. These are not meetings where the public speaks or should speak, it is intended for the board members to share ideas and issues. It's something that all previous Supervisors should have done on a regular basis. 

            The main goal of these meetings besides the important piece of working together positively, is to simplify our excessive zoning codes and construct an active plan for the town as we go forward. There are a few things I really hate, but that's only because I am SO Conservative and wary of "Green" projects, but for the most part, the vision is one I can support. Not that it matters much what I support or don't, I'm only ONE of 2400-something residents.  LOL!!  I still want to move to a Constitutional state. 

            An interesting thing that was brought up was the Midtown Mall. My ears always perk up when I hear those words. I DESPISE that horror in the center of our rural town, and I STILL think Ward Hatch should be charged with violating the laws set down by the state building and fire codes. These are not oppressive, over-reaching laws, these are simple SAFETY issues. What other shopping venue or even private home, do you know of that is not required to have TWO exits? 

           What I learned tonight, is that Hatch proposed one thing and built another, and the sitting boards at the time, failed to issue a Stop-Work order and demand he do it right.  Well, he still OWNS it, as he holds the mortgage, so why not hold him responsible NOW?  If our present boards feel that they can still enforce a court order from 2008 against a local property owner, an order they have failed to enforce for TEN years, then they must also enforce the laws violated by Ward Hatch. Fair is fair,yes?  THAT is an issue that may be coming back into the spotlight, and I WILL be fighting it all the way to the Federal Level if need be. We'll cross that bridge when and IF, we come to it.

         ############################################

           I didn't see all of the State of the Union Address  tonight as the Quad Board Meeting went from 6:30 through 9:30. I think I've been clear about my wariness of Trump, and despite the things he has done that I am happy about, I still don't trust him as much as I would like to. His speech tonight was damn good, there was determination and compassion there, much to the chagrin of the infantile Democrats who sat in their chairs, pouting. Good Lord, these are educated adults in positions of POWER, and they behave abominably!

          We teach Little Leaguers to be good winners AND good losers, but we can't seem to get that across to Democrats. They REALLY need to suck it up and behave like grown-ups. Following the speech, Joe Kennedy Jr. spoke to a bunch of Liberal College Students in Fall River,Mass. He said one or two things that were acceptable, but for the most part, he stood there and lied through his teeth. This was of course, met with thunderous applause from the brain-dead millennials. The thing with Trump, is he said all the things that REAL Americans want and need to hear, but doesn't EVERY Republican Politician? Words mean nothing, action is what we require.

           Yes, Trump HAS followed-through with some of his campaign promises, and it has been only ONE year, but he has a LONG way to go and many promises yet to fulfill. Time will tell, but despite the uplifting words he delivered tonight, I am not convinced. I will always stand by the following words; "If a politician's lips are moving, he is probably lying ".  I have ZERO faith in ANY of them, from EITHER party. They have to PROVE it to ME. Only God deserves Blind Faith in my world. 

            #########################################

            Now, what about DACA? The "Dreamer" issue is a huge problem for America.  On the one hand, these young people and their parents are not "Dreamers" at all ! They are in reality, ILLEGAL immigrants. The parents are FELONS and deserve to be deported quickly and permanently. 

             The young folks who were brought here as little children bear no blame and have no crimes to answer for in regard to their illegal status.  I saw one of these young men interviewed on a talk show last week. He and his wife are both in the medical field, have two children, and are self-sustaining, law-abiding, assets to America. They should be allowed to remain in America and be given an expedient path to citizenship. I despise seeing the innocent punished unjustly, and to deport decent people who have committed NO crime is the very definition of unjust. 

                On the other hand, a frightening number of these so-called "Dreamers" are criminals and are receiving government benefits to which they are NOT entitled. They, need to be expelled from this country immediately.  A "Dreamer" is an individual who comes to America legally, to make a better life for him/herself and their family. He wants to learn, to work, to assimilate, and to realize a "Dream". He does not sneak across our border, he applies for LEGAL entry and fulfills the responsibilities required to become an American Citizen.  

               THAT is how legal immigration is SUPPOSED to work. Our government has a DUTY to thoroughly vet all applicants and accept only those who are crime-free, physically and mentally healthy, and prepared to be self-sufficient. Anything less is dereliction of duty and a crime against the legal citizens of this country. Failure to vet and to provide adequate border security, puts us ALL in danger. 

                 We are presently allowing dangerous criminals,terrorists, gangs, the mentally ill, the uneducated and unskilled, and the diseased, to freely enter America and live among us.  While WE work 40 to 80 hours a week to provide THEM with free housing, education,sustenance, and healthcare that they have ZERO right to, and we are given NO say in the matter. Meanwhile, 50% or more of legal  citizens are struggling to house, feed, and provide healthcare for their OWN families!

                 WHY is this allowed to continue unchecked? That's easy ! 1) Bleeding Heart Liberals who "Claim" to be compassionate are INVITING these people in, using false, sad stories about hungry immigrant families seeking a better life or sanctuary, to pull at the heartstrings of the American people. Stupid people fall for it.  2) The Democrats WANT the immigrants and minorities to come here and vote for THEIR candidates. The more the merrier. Democrats give away our hard-earned tax dollars to people who are not even citizens or are LAZY citizens, and they call it "Entitlement". LOL!!

                 In REAL life, being entitled to something means that you or your family have done something at one time to EARN it, such as military service, for instance. Or in the case of American citizens who have worked and paid in to Social Security, then collect on it after the age of retirement. HOW are illegal immigrants, lazy minorities and White Trash, ENTITLED to ANYTHING? 
 American citizens have a right ONLY to what is spelled-out in the Bill of Rights, and Illegals are not even entitled to THAT! 

                 Welfare, Food Stamps, Free Cellphones, etc., are intended to be TEMPORARY assistance programs for emergency situations or for the permanently disabled. These things were NEVER intended to be life-long means of support for those who CAN work but choose not to, and they were certainly not intended for non-citizens for ANY reason.

                 We must always bear in mind that the minute a foreigner crosses our border illegally, he or she is instantly a FELON. America is the only nation on earth that does not have a secure border or effective immigration enforcement. As long as we continue to look the other way and REWARD illegals for felonious behaviors, the hordes will continue to come, and the costs in lives and taxes will continue to grow. 

                  This too, is a major problem we can thank Liberal Democrats for.  Their hunger for votes and control super-cedes the safety, economic stability, and futures of the American people.  Liberals ALWAYS, ALWAYS, have a self-serving, ulterior motive for everything they support and do. YOU, don't mean a Rat's Ass to them, so why should YOU care WHAT they demand or cry about? Demand Constitutional Law be enforced!

                  The sooner everyone understands the absolutely perilous outcomes of Liberal/Socialist Ideology, the safer, wealthier, freer, and happier we will ALL be.
