I am all ears.

What would be a good reason to repeatedly forward racist emails? Before you answer, please try and keep this in the context of anything we have to pull from here. What does it seem his good reason was?

If asking why things aren't handled equally in the press when it comes to accountability for despicable actions, yup, I have an agenda.....look around, I'm sure you can find something on everyone, as I said everyone has their own little secrets, the difference is how the media manipulates it. I do find it odd that you decry him, and yet have offered no defense for Obama, again, does it only apply to the right?

Then this type of fellow should be quite popular with the 'progressives'. Who are we to judge someone else's lifestyle choices??

I couldn't help but notice they say the emails all originated with him yet every one of them said "FW:" at the beginning. Meaning he didn't start it, he just forwarded on what was sent to him at his work email. Poor taste? Absolutely. Misuse of company resources? Definitely. Does it automatically make him depraved or a racist? Nope.


I thought they clearly said that most were "forwards", but for those that he sent them to, the ones that the reporter checked with to confirm..they "originated from Paladino" in as much as he was the one that forwarded them onto the recipient.

As far as the ...He is not a racist becuase he was just forwarding the emails on...argument.

It is very weak. Are the skin heads that pass out racist flyers absolved from being considered racists themselves because they did not create the fliers? Just passing them on? If he had forwarded on child pornography would he be immune to scrutiny becuase he did not take the pictures? Just hitting the forward button and saying check this out!

One or two emails...questionable.

Well over a hundred emails forwarded on to several dozen folks at a time.

Weak logic IMO. Very weak logic.

From your source:


Every one of these was originally sent by or forwarded by Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino.


Emphasis added. They're implying that he came up with some of them off the top of his head, when the examples I made it to before children being in the room forced me to close the page (just because I have to bleach my eyes doesn't mean they should be subjected to it) all started "FW:". They're saying that not only did he forward them, he also came up with them.

Yep, just went back and checked and they were all forwards. (Now I need twice the bleach..) None of them originated with him like they claim some did.

Yeah the stuff is disturbing and/or in very poor taste (for my delicate sensibilities anyway), and I in no way support or agree with any of them, but that doesn't automatically make him depraved and racist. The guy definitely has a twisted sense of humor though. No argument from me about that.

Did you notice the one that was sent to him from someone else with a city email account? No concerns over the current city worker who sent it to him to begin with? Just over this guy because he's up for election? Sounds like nit-picking to me.

We have really got to listen to these people more and see them for exactly what they are. These Tea **partiers** are just another updated version of fascism running under a new name.

Is that all? Had to go look for myself if you don't mind...
Seems like his opponent is a career politician and banker who helped dismantle Glass-Steagall. Maybe those tea partiers aren't as dumb as you would like to think...

NEW YORK -- Rick Lazio, former U.S. Congressman representing New York's 2nd District, will join JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) as Executive Vice President, Global Government Relations and Public Policy, effective October 1, 2004. Mr. Lazio is currently the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Services Forum, an organization that promotes the development of an open and competitive financial services marketplace and the stability of the U.S. and global financial systems. In his new role, Mr. Lazio will join the firm's Executive Committee and report to William B. Harrison, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

en.wikipedia.org...


On November 4, 1999, Lazio voted in favor of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act,[2] which some economists, including Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz and Judge Richard Posner, believe helped create the 2007 financial crisis.[3][4][5] The bill passed 362 to 57 with 153 Democrats voting in favor.[2]

On Tuesday, April 13, 2010, The Village Voice published an article[6] documenting Lazio's long and distinguished service in Congress on behalf of Wall Street and the Financial Industry; service resulting in a number of jobs on Wall Street among other benefits flowing from his service to that industry. It is currently unknown if Lazio regrets endowing his alma-mater, Vassar, with "...a political lifetime's worth of documents"; from which the Voice story was drawn.


en.wikipedia.org...


The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLB), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, (Pub.L. 106-102, 113 Stat. 1338, enacted November 12, 1999) is an act of the 106th United States Congress (1999–2001) signed into law by President Bill Clinton which repealed part of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, opening up the market among banking companies, securities companies and insurance companies. The Glass-Steagall Act prohibited any one institution from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and an insurance company.

The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act allowed commercial banks, investment banks, securities firms, and insurance companies to consolidate. For example, Citicorp (a commercial bank holding company) merged with Travelers Group (an insurance company) in 1998 to form the conglomerate Citigroup, a corporation combining banking, securities and insurance services under a house of brands that included Citibank, Smith Barney, Primerica, and Travelers. This combination, announced in 1998, would have violated the Glass-Steagall Act and the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 by combining securities, insurance, and banking, if not for a temporary waiver process.[1] The law was passed to legalize these mergers on a permanent basis. Historically, the combined industry has been known as the "financial services industry".

Actually that term was designated as political trolling, kindly chose another term to describe tea party members. Other than that have a nice day.

who cares, you elected a Muslim that claims to be a U.S. citizen that magically grew up in Indonesia and refuses to release a BIRTH CERTIFICATE. He instead releases a CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH. Which is only a validation that a birth has taken place.

You have liberals thinking that it is liberal to kill unborn children. You have Republicans who think global warming and carbon taxes and forced government health-care for all is good.

You have a government who barrows its money from a private bank and congress pisses around with the threat of tax hikes. How in the hell can this government be broke when it has the power to print its own god damn money? It is soooo elementary.

This government shouldn't owe a god damn thing to anyone anywhere and not on our dime.

We gave this gov the power to create money and then they hand that power over to a bank!
Then congress is debating about we should increase taxes and take pension funds to pay international bankers who fraudulently latched onto our government through the federal reserve.

Don't you know that the government does not need your tax money it can make all the money it needs to function. It doesn't the gov barrows in your name and increases your taxes and the burden on everyone of you.

Personally i would rather roll with a person with an unusual sense of humor like the above rather than a lieing thieving statue"quo congress and president We don't need another bush congress and obama please lol just move on ur trash just like the health-care bill you pushed.

The only thing that matters about the tea party is they don't like what is going on
and they want it changed. They don't want more government...they want less,
less spending, less taxes, and they want new leadership in Washington.

These core values, as I described, are STRONG values, so the
TPTB in media and government are going to sling as much mud as
required, lie as much as possible, and slander the movement so that
those "sitting the fence" and milque-toast "tea partiers" will choose
some other party or candidate. It is all slant and propaganda, regardless of truth.

The MSM may even build up a tea party candidate on purpose and then
later discredit him with truth or fiction about his character, to suit their agenda
which is divide and conquer.

I know the game...I'm not playing.

Regardless. The American people have had it with 'business as usual' in Washington, year after year after year.

The same Republicans promising change. Democrats promising change.

Screw them both. They have had their chance and # it up year after year.

Let's get some new blood in there.

Who's embarrassing themselves? I think the "Tea Party" folks did that to themselves a long time ago....

"we want our country back!"

I don't. I like when blacks aren't being discriminated against (well, the Tea Party are actually guilty of doing such things to this day)

I like that gays can have equal rights (well, Conservatives don't want them to have rights actually...)

I want this country to have an open minded free thinking individual who stands up for the common man and not oil companies (Yep, Conservatives don't want this either)

I'm embarrassed to share the same soil as the fools in the "Tea Party" rallies.

I'm sure you have been to so many tea parties, and are not drawing conclusions based on the media... calling Tea Party people racist is like calling all Liberals Idiots, it just isn't true... No matter how many times you call the Tea Party racist, isn't gonna make it reality.

Considering the history of the Republican Party, I don't think claiming it's not racist is a smart move...

However, I did not claim that there is no racism in the Democratic Party. If anything, the two have mushed together to form one party.

The Democrats were suppose to be the ones who thought with logic and made sense of things...however, they took the Republican torch while the Republicans went off the deep end. Now the Democratic Party seems to be about oil, keeping the war in Afghanistan going, not doing much about gay rights in the military, etc.

Today's Democrats are either Center or Right.
Today's Republicans are off the radar and have lost their minds.

The tea party is nothing more than a bunch of uneducated, neoconfederate, lying, upset Americans who want to bring christian values into society and try to bring america to how the south was before the civil war (minus the slaves). These people are disgusting and need to be exposed for what they really are.
