    Greetings All!

    As I've listened to the most recent revelations of Hypocritical behavioral practices engaged in by white folk...i.e. the Sprizt debacle going on in New York...

    I've been wondering.....What (if any) is the connection or relationship between the Governer of a State and the Senator of that State:?:
    Its kinda of interesting that there has been no word (or none that I've heard) regarding clinton's association with him as State Senator.


    M.E.

    Brother Patterson the new Governor is the Executive officer of the state of New York, which has its own legislature and senate as does every other state.
    Hillary Clinton is a U.S. Senator not a member of the state senate, but rather of the United States Senate. Other than that she has only her one vote in the state, yet she is counted on to bring in the bacon, and to represent New York at the federal level. She is not involved in the day to day operations of the state government.

    Thanks Prizmm!

    It still seems tho...if she, as a U.S. State Senator...REPRESENTING the State of New York...and...there is a corrupt Governer of the State SHE represents..would she not have something to at least SAY about it:?:
    Does it not somehow point the finger at her level of representation if she is "bringing home the bacon" and handing over to the head of the State who is involved in CRIMINAL activities....does that not say SOMETHING about her as well.
    Just like when Obama's campaign manager..(or whoever he was) was recently caught in some dirt, seems HE was held somewhat accountable and it hurt HIS image. Would not the same apply here and if not, why:?:

    M.E.

    I don't know how much she is going to say about Spitzers problem, remember Bill! No, she would truly appear hypocrtical is she began to tear into eliot. Yet, remember, senators and congressmen/women represent the needs and concerns of those states they are elected to rep. I would wager that at least forty-five governors are hoping to avoid the teeth of this comb, because politricks is a dirty business, and only last week when Spitzers **** hit the fan did any of the others clean up there respective acts. Only in a world where a Republican rapist Jesse Helms can be regarded as 'god-fearing' and an example of 'good' can down become up, and up, down!

    Obama and Hillary's respective campaigns really need to recognize who drives the wagon. discussions about race concerns in the demo-party may revitalize the racist rabble in the repub party, who more than any thing would like to sow seeds of racial discontent, enough! I have decided I will choke the democrats into realization and submission, rush, hannity :devil: and company on the other side are salivating at what they perceive as a breakdown in the decades long progressive relationship.Yet, they are founded and grounded in a malevolent stew, that I cannot stomach. These two (Hil and Bam) need to stop punching each other in the head, one of them will be the choice if we are irredeemably broken, what then?
    The struggle Continues! Peace!

    just from the outside looking in - I wonder which side set this up? Good that the mngt of her state got a slap, but it still looks good that she now has a Black govenor. This scandal was exposed at this time for a reason - what was it, and by whom?

    yes, I'd like to hear her comments regarding this. just for fun.

    There is quite an exhaustive debate raging within the democratic party in regards to sexism and racism and if anything the DP has its own discontent to deal with and has no way to effectively deal with the republicans. A lot of white democrats especially are constantly threatening to "cross-over" and vote "Son of Cain" if Obama recieves the democratic nomination. The DP attempts to silence (I am once banned) any mention of internal racism/white supremacy and if Obama was engaged in this dialogue they would try to have him banned as well. I know this from being on the inside but having my voice marginalized.

    Peace, Brother Omowalejabili,
    I have also seen what you are referring to. I have a rather antagonistic relationship with the DP here, yet in my locale the repubs will not even consider those issues of importance. When I speak about ws/r I draw no distinction in terms of party. I realize that I am walking with the enemy, I proceed with diligence, focus, perseverance and discipline, and as much as I wish it weren't so...The Struggle Continues! Peace!

    I C!...
    You know, as I re-read and began to reply here, I was drawn to the statement I highlighted.
    I think about the Afreekan Male and Female and wonder when WE will stop "punching each other over the head". Now, I know many will claim that there may be no need for such discourse here at Destee, cause "WE" don't engage in such, yet......
    The whole thing 'feels' like a highly paralell process for us as a people. I'm not putting my finger on it fully just yet, however, 'something' is there about it for me.

    The whole bunch of them, dems and repubs. are part of the same politictrikal shystem which is founded upon oppression, suppression and marginalization of Afreekans as a 'race' of people. It makes no difference who "wins", for in this shystem, WE still lose. As long as the shystem is in place.

    I think along the same lines as Sis Zulile in terms of the 'set up". As this screwy story upfolds, see how the white woman who is a known prostitute is being flashed across the screens as "pretty", "poor likkle white girl who made it big selling her body"...no talk of the criminal nature of her actions...nor his too tough..
    It's all about the LANGUAGE used to talk about the events which seem to effectively absolve them both of any wrong doing. And the world is silent on this. There are all kinds of rationalizations about his behaviors, her behaviors, the levels of INJUSTICE involved in it all.

    Of course "Black people are not oppressed" so ...the same talks and conversations would be going on were those to be Afreekan Descendents...Governer and call-girl. Right:?: There would be NO difference cause "we are not oppressed". As this is the mantra many of US hold, WE are divided, punching at each other in some ways.

    Still, I have a better overstanding regarding the relationship of billary as a Senator for the State, the need for the demon~crazy party to remain silent even tho the repubs will likely capitalize on this once they begin the final RACE. I can just imagine the outrage being expressed in the hannity and company camp:laugh:

    This is all I have to say about this now.

    M.E.
