Carl Paladino: What You See Is What You Get . . .

Last week David Andreatta wrote in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle about a series of videos Carl Paladino had done for a Buffalo publication, Artvoice.  Paladino was asked to do them because he had long been outspoken on many issues including indian casinos, Thruway tolls, and the public schools . He could always be counted on to get a discussion going. What makes the videos interesting is that they were compiled well before Mr. Paladino started his run for governor, and, probably, well before the thought even crossed his mind.

"He didn't reinvent himself for this election," said Artvoice publisher Jamie Moses. 
Well before Paladino the Gubernatorial Candidate said he would enforce the collection of taxes from native tribes selling cigarettes to non-Indians, Paladino the Outspoken Businessman was railing against the "15 to 20 thugs" who he said run the Seneca Nation with an unfair tax advantage. 
"It isn't the common Indian that's benefiting," Paladino told Artvoice in January 2009. "It's the big thugs who run everything. ... They should tax them and make things fair, make the rule fair, play by the rules."

In March 2009, Paladino criticized a prevailing wage measure in Albany that would have required developers like him to pay higher wages on publicly financed construction projects as the work of downstate "union-minded" legislators.

"We'd like to see this nonsense of giving union labor and contractors a special edge in New York state stop," Paladino said. "It has stymied upstate development." . . .

None of the videos could be described as rants. Nor does any reveal Paladino as the erratic torch wielder that his critics and political opponents have portrayed him as to voters.



You be the judge... The Paladino videos are available on Artvoice.  Who do you believe is more likely to change the corrupt culture in Albany?

How dare they call Carl crazy or dangerous after Hevesi, Spitzer and Paterson! Stick a plunger up Cuomolectual Cox Yucker Bloombugger’s nose to relieve his congestion pricing and his metric system. Spray DDT to kill the bedbugs and roaches that infest Manhattan minds. When we were allowed to smoke, TB and bedbugs got fumigated. Parasite Manhattan residents, like Washington DC and exconvicts should not be allowed to vote, unless they want to vote in Europe. Move all the parasite universities to Manhattan and tax all college degrees and net present value of rent control to reduce our property taxes. Require a valid driver license for any employment. Double tax any parasite not working for profit. Build a rail hub at Randall’s Island to bypass Manhattan. Liberate Long Island City and Brooklyn from over a century of 1898 Tamanend oppression. Move UN, missions, residences to Governor’s Island surrounded by gators. Anyone who shops at Whole Foods must consume at least one of their own organs weekly. Apartment dwellers must consume any vermin found on their premises. Turn Central Park into a smelly green waste processing facility. Firebrand the forehead of anyone having an abortion. Access in and out of subway stations should only be by firepole. David Broder in the Washington Post of July 25, 1984, called Mario Cuomo "one of the most artful manipulators since Machiavelli". In the May 15, 1984 New York Times B1 Mario Cuomo called civil defense planning (such as might have prevented 9/11) futile "Cuomo said that prayer was the best preparation for a nuclear attack. He also urged everyone to read 'The Butter Battle Book' by Dr. Seuss for a clearer understanding of the issues." Your islamosympathic gutterswabbing clothing and pierced privates spread disease. If you weren't such baby killing, vermin snuggling perverts you wouldn't be driving up our health costs, then collecting disability for your commie nutty organizing dementia. Your passive aggressive labor unions grab our guns, cars (congestion pricing), balls (SONDA), wallets, and homes but we will grab your throats and dang you from trailer bone tolls. Second Amendment is the ONLY Homeland Security. Wait until we waste all your stumbent subprimes, so you need to sell your affectation glutton art and work instead of diverting tuition and Y2K scams to soviet freezeniks! Deport immigrants who return to their home country more than once every five years. Lynch soviet wealth fund abetting aghadhimmic peakies when oil plummets! Parasites complain about salaries but pig out on benefits. Aqua volte! This land wasn't built by bully craps.
