Time Out

It is appropriate for a time out in the Senate race and for the campaigns to recess to their respective offices, take a deep breath and relax for a moment.

The saying; if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around does it make a sound, is applicable here. If the two campaigns keep battling foolish issues back and forth and no one is paying attention, does it matter. NO, so stop already.

Nepotism is a legitimate issue given the circumstances of Darrel Aubertine's vote and the fact that his hiring practices violated the law, as well, A.L Lee Memorial Hospital, the state budget crisis, nuclear and wind power are among valid issues. Darrel Aubertine is an incumbent he has a record, which is susceptible to being questioned and his campaign needs to understand that fact. 

The contracts are legitimate issues, but that was contracts with an "s", plural - contracts. If Aubertine even slightly expects Renzi to release any information regarding his private employment, then Aubertine cannot with a straight face sit there and tell people his wind contracts are proprietary, like he did last week. He has voted on wind power legislation at the state level, which presents a conflict of interest with a big fat "C."

As far as the sign issue goes, get over it both sides and move on! No one give a rat's a.s" about your signs, each of the campaigns have eager workers and sh.t happens. No one did anything wrong by attending an opponent's rally and leaving with signs and material that was given to them, other than use poor judgment.

To each campaign - stay on your own side of the barbed wire fence, play nice and direct the issues at the voters not at each other, no one is in your forest right now listening to trees fall!

Time out yourself. You and David Renzi and SOS have had weeks at rough and dirty play. You got a little muddy and now you want time out. Two weeks to go and we are just getting started. David Renzi will be seen for what he is.

This blog has become nothing but attacks on behalf of Renzi for weeks now. I'm afraid to say the wheels have come off the Renzi campaign. They pushed too hard and too personally (as have you) and not only have Republican voters been turned off, but many are rallyig to Aubertine. Renzi is responsible for the choices of his campaign but this McKenna guy is bad news and have really steered Dave off track.

Awww the big bully is rolling around on the ground hollering, "Time out", "Time out". And I'm a girl. Reminds me of my big brother. He was a pussy.

Was PIV one of the thugs that stole the signs? I see panic in his eyes. Was he wearing his secret Rush Decoder Ring? Was SOS the lookout guy or was he on the street safely calling names from a distance.

You are the same slimy people who did a big post intended to discredit and embarrass the Senator's sister 5 months after she resigned and had no contact with the Senator's office. Then allowed slurs and obscenities and lies toward anyone with the same last name as hers. You even tried to screw up A L Lee just to make a vicious point.
This blog is nothing but one big Senator Aubertine smear. We can smell you over here and the wind always blows your way. No time out for Dave Renzi. No time out for you.

It is funny how you want a time out now that Darrel is punching back. Everything was all find and dandy when Darrel was letting Dave throw haymakers. But now that Darrel is hitting him back and bringing up how Renzi has broke the law its time to get back to the issues. Just remember who started all this, if Renzi would have stuck to the real issues that we all face we wouldnt be at this point.

A time-out is an educational (mainly parenting) technique recommended by many pediatricians and developmental psychologists as an alternative to spanking and other traditional forms of discipline. Yet in many developed countries such as the Scandinavian countries, it is considered medieval and primitive. [1]
The concept was invented, named and used by Arthur Staats in his extended work with his daughter (and later son), part of a long-term program of behavioral analysis (beginning in 1958)that treated various aspects of child development (see his books dating from 1963). In that work he introduced various elements that later composed foundations for applied behavior analysis and behavior therapy(the token reward system was another invention). Montrose Wolf, a graduate student assistant of Staats on several studies dealing with reading learning in preschoolers (see, for example, Staats A.W, Staats C.K, Schultz R.E, Wolf M.M. The conditioning of textual responses using “extrinsic” reinforcers.), used that background when he went to the University of Washington where he began his creative program of research. Wolf first used Staats' time-out procedure in a 1964 published study dealing with the behavioral treatment of a child.[

Beware of phony woof postings.
There's only one real dog who posts. If it sounds middle school, it's the imposter, soon to be followed by the simple, bahawaaa.
The key word here is,

simple.

this is kind of a pathetic post

Did you really just post a silly item about cooling off the rhetoric, in which you spent two paragraphs attacking Aubertine, with no mention of Renzi's problems? Seriously? Did you really just do that?

David Renzi is opposed to Wind development in our Senate District and owners of the WDT have been vocal about wind opposition at public meetings so they can protect the beauty of their home on the River. Is that why you want a time out? Let's talk more about why you hate Wind. David.

I think Darrel seriously crossed the line from "one of us" good guy to "attack dog" Albany politician.

It's a point of no return and voters will have to take a new meaasure of the guy "who lives here too."

Looks like competitive politics has changed our guy -- and not for the better.
