  1. Now if I could only trust polls, but the only thing I really trust is the ballot tallys.

  2. I like watching polls, but I do take them with a grain of salt. We will have to wait and see how closely these numbers align with the actual results. It’s going to be interesting!

  3. Why is the New York State Communist Party, whose official color is red, interested in seeing the 29th Congressional District go blue?

    On March 30, Elena Mora, state chairperson of the Communist Party, wrote in the People’s Weekly World online newspaper [Please check out the 2006 midterm election “means electing Democrats…”

    That quote should be interpreted as a wholesale endorsement of the Democratic ticket by a fifth column.

    I am sure you’ve seen Eric Massa’s campaign commercials, pulling a John Kerry routine by one-upping his Naval background and how he fought Communism.

    If he’s such a staunch anti-communist abroad, then why didn’t Massa repudiate Mora’s endorsement here at home?

    Why does the communist party support the Democrats and Eric Massa? Is it because Massa supports more government control and believes that the federal government can decide on how best to spend your hard earned money? Is it because he supports a socialized health care plan that will cost $1.8 trillion dollars and increase your taxes?

    Why should the voters of the 29th Congressional District trust this outsider at this dangerous time in our nation’s history?

    Just asking…

  5. Wow, Sly, you’re onto something there. I’ll bet that Eric Massa *is* a closet Commie. In fact, I’ll wager that pinko has a direct line in his campaign HQ to Fidel Castro, along with weekly Ouija board sessions with Stalin, Lenin and Marx.

    Isn’t it just like a dirty rat Commie to masquerade as a 24-year Navy vet? His well-disguised communism must be the reason why Massa got multiple security clearances and worked on the staff of the NATO commander.

    To answer your question more specifically, the reason why he didn’t repudiate the CP endorsement is that he wanted to be sure that all of the sleeper cells in Cattaragus County were activated by the message from CP HQ. Once those third-column agents in Olean and Humphrey open their copies of the People’s Weekly World, they’ll go and plant Massa yard signs in their front lawns, activate the shortwaves in the attic, and prepare for world domination.

    Watch out, Sly, they’re coming to get you! Better tighten the straps on your tinfoil hat and hunker down in the bomb shelter until the election is over.

  6. Sly – I can see that you are passionate in your anti-communist views. I’m just wondering what your opinion is of the close relationship our country has with communist China in the aspects of trade relations and the amount of money we are borrowing from them in the effort to support the tax breaks and to keep our country running. It appears to me that you have more of a concern than the current administration has.

    (And as a side note, the color “red” looks to be the color that represents the republican party in this country.)

  7. Eric Massa wants to decide how I should spend the money that I earned. Why? He never did the work. He just wants to sit back & decide how to spend the money I earned. If he wants to do that, shouldn’t I have the right to decide what he spends his money on?

  8. I gather from your comment, carole, that you are in the “upper-class” and not the “middle-class”, since Mr. Massa actually favors tax cuts for middle-class citizens. If you didn’t know this about Massa, I suggest you go to his website and take a look.
