Sunday Afternoon Tea Party on Jericho Turnpike

Ron Cheselka of Bay Shore sports a Paul Revere hat and strong opinions about Steve Israel

The Conservative Society for Action staged a demonstration outside Suffolk County Democratic Party offices on Jericho Turnpike Sunday afternoon.  Lower taxes and smaller government dominated the discussion and Don’t Tread on Me flags decorated the protesters.

Bob Todavo of Holbrook wants the people to speak up. He says "silence equals death".

Rick from Smithtown says Chuck Schumer is not doing a good job defending New York State rights and has allowed taxes in the state to get out of control. He believes Gary Berntsen is a better alternative.

    Funny thing congressman Steve Israel was riding through Huntington and got real upset with all the vote for JOHN GOMEZ signs he saw. He apparently made a big stink about it. It’s kind of funny cause he does have a couple of signs up on telephone poles himself albeit very few.
    I remember several years back when Dennis Garetano was running for county legislator, the dems and and dem candidate Lou D’Amaro complained bitterly in Babylon that political signs on telephone poles were illegal and that a fine would be imposed on the Republicans if any more were put up. Of course the Republicans obeyed their wishes and in several days the Democrats put up hundreds of pole signs for Lou D’Amaro from Babylon all through Huntington.
    Needless to say they didn’t last long but the moral of the story is “whats good for the goose is good for the Gander”.

    Was told Israel’s office made 9 telephone calls yesterday asking the other internet newspaper to take down a similar article then they called back 4 times and asked this internet newspaper to change the number of people that was stated attending. Sad.

    Thank you to our Long Island neighbors who brave the heat and give of their time to raise awareness of the candidacies of Gary Berntsen and John Gomez.
    My own contacts with Steve Israel and Chuck Schumer have shown them to be unresponsive to any concern about the increase in government spending and its adverse affect on job creation.

    Congressman Israel has been fooling the residents of Huntington Smithtown Islip Babylon that he is a moderate democrat.
    But those votes for or against don’t lie. Steve Israel is an Obama Pelosi Reid puppet.He’s also beholden to unions like SEIU and is friends with developers all across Suffolk county.He is by far the sliest politician on Long Island. Don’t be fooled. Steve Israel is a devout leftist.
