One of the biggest deal makers in government today is Chuck Schumer who has the blessings of the powerful establishment within the Democrat Party and the hand-picked successor to Senator Harry Reid. The only thing I remember him for is some deal he made to help the Dairy industry and farmers.
One might clap with envy of such devotion to helping the New York power base within the media and Democrat Party which loses counties outside the NYC beltway. The power base is entirely the Labor Unions that dictate the policies and life line of the political New York media movement. And it comes from the many boroughs that forever seem to make this state a one party possession as a “right.”
Well, I understand Wendy Long is vying for Shumer’s Senate seat. The only active party to oppose the Democrats is the NY Conservative Party and that handle is proudly held high in the hands of this gallant gal who proudly tacks on the handle of her campaign as a true blue conservative minded candidate. I say this without any fanfare. It is folly one might say given as one looks into a fish bowl to see just what fish is present. The obstacles are many. The smirks coming from the media pros laugh as though to say, “good luck babe”! Another conservative dreamer! Ho, Ho, Ho!
Is the spirit of debate, of belief in self and in integrity lost in the long New York history of pile on pile of corruption, beatings and even cases of murder that has plagued the inner city docks; various transport companies trying to compete honorably, asking only for fairness to compete for contracts, etc. For years this has been hid under the shield of the labor union bosses and Democrat Party. Is this the America we want for our children to inherit??
Chances are she won’t win. Lets face it–the deck is stacked from day one. American citizens can’t be blamed can they when the deck of cards come phony up before the fight begins? My readers might say I am a defeatist. You know me better. What I am hopeful of is to get these damn New Yorkers who kiss their butts and go with the flow to find some backbone and say piss to the journalists, news media and the like and think and act on their own feelings and convictions.
That is the only way, Wendy Long has a chance to turn around the corrupt New York system. My hat off to her. Perhaps some of my readers will wonder just what Shumer, the reportedly great deal maker in the Senate has accomplished with the deals he has made. The country is in one hell of a mess as witness the past, the present and likely the future –short of changing of the guard. But I won’t hold my breath.
