Well May 21st is shaping up to be a busy day> Perhaps you’re going to Albany to protest against the egregious violations of our fundamental 2nd amendment rights by NY State gov, or perhaps you’re going somewhere to protest the egregious violations and corruption by the Federal gov with respect to the IRS Scandal. In any case, make sure you also vote on your School budgets and School boards too.

On the IRS issue, here’s a message from our Tea Party friends with local info:

“STTPP will be holding a Protest Outside the IRS Building on  E. 2nd St. & Prendergast Ave Jamestown NY

at 12:00 noon Tuesday May 21st.

It is time to stand up and become a force they cannot ignore. (Events happening across the Country)

On behalf of Tea Party, Patriot groups, 9/12, liberty activists, and the American people, we are calling for anyone and everyone to protest the IRS’ complete abuse of power on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at noon local time.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is out of control and we need to stand up and let them know that we will not take their intimidation tactics!”

TUES NOV 6th: “Vote Mitt Romney”

Dear fellow New Yorker’s, friends in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and all Americans across our great Nation,

We believe in America and hope you do as well. In 4 days there is only one clear choice to get America back on track and right the path of our great national ship that has blown so far off course over these last 4 years. We believe that Mitt Romney can do this, not because he’s “the one” – a kind of messiah or savior, a rock star or some worldly celebrity, or any other delusional or shallow attribute, but because he is a real leader and a true statesman. Mitt Romney as a former Governor understands not only what Washington DC must properly do, but also what it must not. He understands how government should work and first and foremost that any policy of such must be grounded in certain rock solid principles, those that made us what we are, those found in our Constitution. He understands as a successful businessman how and why our laissez faire system of free market capitalism works, works best, and how to promote it in such a way, as well as get out of its way, so that is creates jobs, prosperity, and the revenues that government needs to carry out it essential and proper functions. He understands as the former Commander-in-Chief of his state, how to be such for his Nation, and that we must regain our footing in the world as a leader, as a beacon of liberty, and that we must keep our nation safe and stand by our friends, with a policy of peace through strength. He also understands as a successful man how to pay it forward, has been very generous throughout his life, and understands that government cannot force charity, nor should promote dependency, and that the best way for a community to take of itself is through its’ individuals achievement, responsibility, and choice, not by having their hand out to Washington DC. Finally, Mitt Romney is a man of integrity, is humble, pious, and devout in his beliefs of life, liberty, and our rights that come from our creator, not from man, and not from government. He can and he will use these traits to bring our nation back together and lead us into the future in the spirit of another great leader who once said, “You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream–the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order — or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, “The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.”

Fellow Americans we are on that downward path, but we believe in the upward one, and we are confident that Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, their families, and enough of yours, believe so as well. Together this election day, we pray, we can get back on this upward path by making the change we truly need. With our heart and soul, and of sound mind – may Mitt Romney be the next President of these United States of America and may our next generations be as blessed with freedom as we were.

Real Change From Day One – Mitt’s Closing Argument

(For Obama 4 More Days – Not 4 more years. The only hope now is that we get the real change needed but never delivered, and no more of those changes we did get, that only made matters worse!)
“President Obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. I promise change, and I have a record of achieving it. This is why I am running for president. I know how to change the course the nation is on, how to get us to a balanced budget and how to build jobs and rising take-home pay. Accomplishing real change is not something I just talk about–it is something I have done. And it is what will do when I am President of the United States.

If you believe we can do better, if you believe America should be on a better course, if you are tired of being tired, then I ask you to vote for real change. Paul Ryan and I will bring real change to America, from Day One.”  –  Mitt Romney

9/11 “IN MEMORY 11 years later”


Do you remember where you were when you learned of the 9/11 attacks on our country ?

Observer Poll 09-11-2012 (Do you remember, 11 years later!)

  1. Yes
  2. No

Pausing today to remember

September 11, 2012 The OBSERVER

We will never forget where we were 11 years ago this morning.

As America looked on in shock and disbelief, jets flew in to the World Trade Center towers, crashed into the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. More than 3,000 died in the attacks.

Today, we all should pause to remember those who have lost their lives in the war on terror, which started on Sept. 11, 2001. Remember those who perished in the attacks. Remember those who have perished while defending the United States. And, remember those who are currently serving across the globe.

September 12, 2012 It has been 11 years since the terror attacks and many remember as if it were yesterday. The Dunkirk Firefighters Local 616 held its annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony to ensure we did not forget…

Number of visitors to Pa. Flight 93 memorial grows

September 10, 2012 Associated Press

KEVIN BEGOS, Associated Press PITTSBURGH (AP) — More and more people are visiting the Flight 93 National Memorial in rural western Pennsylvania, authorities say, and new construction is scheduled to begin next year.

At the current pace, more than 1,000 bus groups will visit the park this year, almost double the number in 2011, said King Laughlin, vice president of the Flight 93 National Memorial Campaign. More than 200,000 people are expected to visit this year…

WTC memorial magnificent, but at a steep price

September 10, 2012 Associated Press

DAVID B. CARUSO and DAVID PORTER, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — With its huge reflecting pools, ringed by waterfalls and skyscrapers, and a cavernous underground museum still under construction, the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center is an awesome spectacle that moved and inspired some 4.5 million visitors in its first year.

But all that eye-welling magnificence comes with a jaw-dropping price tag. The foundation that runs the memorial estimates that once the roughly $700 million project is complete, the memorial and museum will together cost $60 million a year to operate.

The anticipated cost has bothered some critics and raised concerns even among the memorial’s allies that the budget may be unsustainable without a hefty government subsidy…
