Carl Palidino tell me this is a lie: you donated to two of the worst politicians on the planet, Schumer and Clinton. According to Warren Redlich you gave $1000 to Chuck Schumer in 2009 and $4600 to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. That may be chump change to you but it still smells of the political class purchasing a little friendship. Tell me it’s a lie so I can set the record straight.

I had business in Ithaca yesterday that took me to the city hall. It has been a little while since I’d been there and there are changes. The front door is now locked a sign directs ‘All Persons’ to the side entrance. I’ve been casually studying a bit of law and I find this use of the term ‘person’ odd in this context. Why did they not simple have their sign say ‘Please use side entrance’? The term ‘person’ used in law may not mean what most people think it means, as a ‘person’ in law may be a legal entity such as a corporation. It is possible that the term ‘person’ does not refer to a man or woman, they are sometimes termed ‘natural person’. It’s part of a little game legislators play to steal the rights of those not paying attention.
I went around to the side entrance to enter the land of the bureaucrats. Another change is the officer and metal detector. Ladies and gentlemen if you’d like to do your public business, it would appear that you will need to forego your inalienable right to privacy. I didn’t get my chance to question this new system as my business was in an office to the side of the detector and I just walk around.
I seems that this grand security measure came about as the result of a shoe throwing episode this past February. The article does say whether or not the said shoe was a steel toed projectile. I didn’t notice a shoe check station, maybe they hand out fluffy slippers to wear into the city hall. I presume the grand mayor of Ithaca has a security detail with her outside the safety of the castle.
Are these people idiots, or are we?
From James Ostrowski:
This event is co-sponsored by Free New York, Inc., BuffaloLiberty.com and PoliticalClassDismissed.com. The coordinator for the event is Jill Sinclair.
The tentative schedule is online here:
This is a part of a national tea party movement against big government that is gaining momentum each week. We had nine people at our first event, thrown together on short notice. Then, on March 18th, over 500 people attended a tea party organized by Rus Thompson, Ellie Corcoran and Allen Coniglio.
We must keep building the crowds and the enthusiasm on April 18th and build up to a huge rally on July 4th weekend. We will discuss that event on the 18th.
Government of the people does not mean career politicians. Let’s get rid of the political class and restore the republic.
The Ithaca Journal reports:
ALBANY — The Paterson administration released records Wednesday that showed top aide Charles O’Byrne has paid back nearly $300,000 in overdue state and federal taxes, claiming he was delinquent for five years because he suffered from “non-filer syndrome.”
Tax payers hand over hard earned ‘dollars’ to support the $178,500 salary of an unproductive member of the political class. Being a member of the political class Mr. O’Bryne figures he need not pay ‘his fair share’. The poor guy suffers from depression so the tax payers should kick in a little extra to send him for a little R&R with pay, of course.
