Green Party congressional candidate Matt Funiciello is becoming a radio talk show host.
His program is to be called "UnCommon Sense." Whether that's because he lacks the other kind is not noted. I should point out that it was good enough for Thomas Paine, however.
“We’re looking to do primarily an interview and call-in show. But we’re also looking to try to make sure that the production value is a little above what would be expected for a public affairs program that was done locally for free,”
Not sure what "production values a little above" means. More cowbell maybe. Apparently, he believes the wingnuts who listen to Dennis Miller (if any there be) will stick around for his leftwing views. I'll pass on the Miller lead-in.
Funiciello said talk radio is a great way for him to reach conservative-minded voters.
“We’re trying to get the faux conservative and faux liberal mentalities together and come up with something that is other,” he said.
Thinking back on his platform, I'm not sure what conservative, faux or otherwise, would've supported a $15 an hour minimum wage and single payer healthcare. And since I believe he may have labeled me a faux liberal in a Post Star comment thread, I'll mention why he lost my vote quite early on. In his first interview with The Chronicle, he stated we need guns to protect ourselves from tyranny. I'll just say that I hear enough of that from the Right and let Jim Jefferies carry the ball from there. Thanks again, Magpie.
This is a good opportunity to once again bring up the Dems = Reps BS. Matt also, in a PS comment, pointed out to me his support for HR 676 Single Payer Healthcare Bill. Which is great. Love it. Unfortunately, he left the thread and never responded to my response. I pointed out that this resolution was sponsored by John Conyer, democrat from Michigan (bless his everlasting soul), and co-sponsored by 88 additional democrats (bless them as well). Need I mention the zero Republicans who put their names to it? I do need to mention that these democrats put their asses on the line only to be slandered by Matt Funiciello as no different than Republicans.
Moving on from the once and future Green Party candidate for district rep, brings us to a military recruiter who has run afoul of the law here in the hometown.
The former military recruiter who pleaded guilty earlier this month to sexually assaulting two women in Washington County pleaded guilty Wednesday to possessing an illegal assault rifle as well.
Robert S. Haas, 36, of Kingsbury, pleaded guilty to felony criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the seizure of an illegal gun from a storage unit in Glens Falls last April.
He faced four counts of criminal possession of a weapon — two felonies and two misdemeanors — after the rifle, an unregistered handgun, an electronic stun gun and brass knuckles were seized from the storage unit, police said.
But don't you see, he needs that weaponry to defend himself from the tyrannical government that is set on keeping him from raping women. The SAFE Act fails again.
On a normal newsday, this letter writer might have had the post to himself. Today he finds himself in show.
I have written in the past that some of the president’s missteps were because he was absent from school when it was taught in history. I may sound like Rudy Giuliani (I can’t join the Mayflower Society either) to point out that he may have been educated in Indonesia. History should be the same worldwide.
The attempt to marginalize the visit of the prime minister of Israel which was treated as a breach of protocol and ignored the importance of what he said. When Neville Chamberlain, Edouard Daladier met with Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, President Eduard Benes of Czechoslovakia wasn’t invited, although his country was being divided. History does repeat itself, doesn’t it? I doubt if Parliament ratified the agreement. These days it could have become a reality “by executive action” as so many important matters have become. I don’t recall hearing much about executive action until President Bill Clinton was pardoning so many of those who donated to his library. It must be legal. Could those executive actions be reversed by the next president?
The few well-placed atomic bombs would be in Hitler’s words “the final solution to the Jewish problem.” During the negotiations with Joseph Stalin, Franklin D. Roosevelt said he could charm Stalin while Winston Churchill didn’t want to be so generous. Churchill was right about Munich also. FDR certainly was charming. Iran doesn’t seem to be easily charmed.
I'm sorry I don't have the time or energy to Fisk your letter, and I'm not going to respond in print either. Your loss. Of course, I have nearly no idea what you're going on about anyway, except to say "Obama bad." Well, maybe just a few.

Hunh? Getting tired of what. Congrats on getting Chamberlain and Hitler in there. Hitler is a Godwin, don't know if Chamberlain has his own yet.

Pretty sure Clinton wasn't the first to extend prez pardons. Gerald Ford comes to mind. As far as reversal; executive actions, yes and pardons, no. That's my guess.

See my last couple posts before this one. I don't care if they're charmed. That's hardly the point. And whether the Israelis or the Saudis like our negotiating with Iran, I don't care there either.
