    John Faso - tomorrow's election

    Hi all,
    I don't know if this will stay on the main board, but I want to invite you all to consider John Faso in tomorrow's NYS governor election. He's an underdog and can use some help. He's my girlfriend's uncle and I've had the chance to talk to him and he's a pretty cool guy...

    He's all for cutting taxes and balancing the budget...cutting the crap within to balance. He's in favor of capping school tax increases so that we don't see 10+% increases every year, and a big proponent of job creation. And he's already made major strides in coming from nowhere to win the party's nomination...

    He spent a bunch of years in the state senate and was known for being one of the most diligent senators as minority leader.

    He was impressive in debating Spitzer, and helped to really launch the race of state comptroller as a competitive one by questioning Hevesi's politics.

    And finally, he's a man that's made himself from the ground up...a picture of the American dream. His father was a janitor and his mother a homemaker, he went to public school on Long Island and later to state universities to get his degrees.

    I'm not the beacon of knowledge on every point, so I'd refer you to [URL=http://www.johnfaso2006.com]his website[/URL], and also to an analysis of [URL=http://www.spitzerspending.com]spending increases if Spitzer is elected.[/URL]


    Thanks for your time all, don't forget to go vote! :D

    Faso wants to complete cut state taxes for people that make 75K or less. Think about that voters before you vote in Spitzer in to tax the crap out of the state.

    Faso is also pro-choice (except late term), pro workfare and pro gay marriage.

    Typical stupid neocon, scream that people should be able to speak the language yet can not speak it themselves. :rolleyes:

    No, wrong again, as usual

    The meaning is "effect" as a Transitive Verb
    Thats what happens when you read too many MSM newspapers
    Next youll correct someone for saying "should have" and
    "could have"
    Oh the value of a public school education

    Yes and people in the country should strive to be educated
    and speak English as well as any other languages.

    From Merriam-Webster (you know, the dictionary)

    [b]usage[/b] [i]Effect[/i] and [i]affect[/i] are often confused because of their similar spelling and pronunciation. The verb [i]2[/i]affect usually has to do with pretense <she [i]affected[/i] a cheery disposition despite feeling down>. The more common [i]3[/i]affect denotes having an effect or influence <the weather [i]affected[/i] everyone's mood>. The verb [i]effect[/i] goes beyond mere influence; it refers to actual achievement of a final result <the new administration hopes to [i]effect[/i] a peace settlement>. The uncommon noun [i]affect[/i], which has a meaning relating to psychology, is also sometimes mistakenly used for the very common [i]effect.[/i] In ordinary use, the noun you will want is [i]effect[/i] <waiting for the new law to take [i]effect[/i]> <the weather had an [i]effect[/i] on everyone's mood>.

    I think Faso has good ideas but doesn't stand a chance of winning...it'll be interesting to see if Spitzer holds true to his vow of sending more NY state school tax $$ to private schools...

    I voted for Faso today, even though he doesn't stand much of a chance, I voted my principle. I also voted for Spencer, while I'm not delusional enough to think Spencer will win, I'm just hoping that Hillary wins with a smaller plurality then projected to slow her national ambition.

    The irony of this post is priceless. If there was an American Funniest Home Videos for stupid posts, this would win the season finale and the $100k. :P
