Senseless Injustice to our own Lighthouse Mission


I originally intended to write an article, asking for donations of 26 inch bicycles for the Lighthouse mission, but a senseless act of vandalism changed the course of this article!

The lighthouse Mission distributes free food to 3,000 people every week, but in addition, also provides the local youth with quality social activities, as well as a Christian religious education.

Kids and young adults are escorted from local homeless shelters and are invited to participate in basic activities that every youth should experience! The Lighthouse Mission (LM) sponsors, bicycle trips,   sailing lessons, Kayaking excursions, trail biking, educational racing car seminars, camping trips, and also helps kids and young adults with their homework, after school!

This wonderful organization helps hundreds of children, young adults, and adults survive in this hostile environment! Most of the families that are helped by the LM are people just like you and I! I was fortunate enough, not to lose my job when we had the economic down-turn… Most of the people and families that are now in the shelters, never recovered, and were not able to get jobs that are good enough to support a family!

As a reward for the unprecedented services the Lighthouse Mission has provided to our community, someone sneaked onto the LM property in the dead of the night, and broke the windows and slashed the tires on one or more of the trucks that are used to deliver food to the needy! What kind of person would do this?

We as a community must individually stand up and support the Lighthouse Mission, by helping them in any way that we can! They are currently low on un-cooked food, and now need car windows and tires, in order to continue their service to the needy! Yes the youths would still love to have new 26 inch bicycles! Every youth deserves to have a bike!

The lighthouse Mission is not government funded and operates entirely on donations.  If you can contribute please go to the following link. www.LighthouseGive.com

Suffolk County, NY Red Light Cameras are Turning us Into Robo-Slaves

How Did Our Representatives Vote?


The Good Guys

Tom Cilmi - voted to suspend cameras
Leslie Kennedy - voted to suspend cameras
Dr. William Spencer - voted to suspend cameras


The Bad Guys:
The Bad Guys:
The Bad Guys:


Red light cameras are being forced on us by the very people that we put in office to represent us! In addition, they are trying to sneak another type of camera in, that sends traffic tickets directly to your home.


I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if this bunch of hooligans approved an incarceration ramp to be installed on all highways! If you go one mile over the speed limit the highway will collapse beneath your car. Directing it to an incarceration room, where you, your wife, your children and your dog will be imprisoned beneath the highway. We must not allow technology to control or lives! We must elect people that will protect us, not turn us into Robo-slaves!

The following voted to keep the cameras.

Please call the BAD GUYS and voice your disapproval

Call Them to Complain
Monica R. Martinez (631) 853-3700
Bridget Fleming (631) 852-8400
Kate Browning (631) 852-1300
Robert Calarco (631) 854-1400
Kara Hahn (631) 854-1650

This strategy has been posted by many people on the Internet! 
I have a better idea! at least one of the answering machines have been inoperative or shut down. 
No sense in calling!

OPINION:

DON'T CALL BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY DON'T GIVE A SHIT!

JUST REMEMBER THESE PEOPLE AT ELECTION TIME!

PLEASE PARDON MY EXPLETIVE!

Paramilitary Operation Contrived by Eight Year Old Children


Ben Vitale

Don’t ever believe that children are stupid! Many years ago my family and I spent every weekend and holiday, on our boat, at the Fire Island community of Davis Park. DP is indeed a party community! LOL!  The children watch the adults Party, and it doesn’t take very long before the children start to imitate their parents! LOL! OMG! Party animals at 8 and 9 years old! Yep! It’s true! The children learned to party with the best of them! LOL!

Every Saturday night, the parents in our crowd, hired three baby sitters to watch 9 children that were supposed to be sleeping on three boats! Three boats… Three baby sitters! OK! The sun sets and the adults are off to the Davis Park Casino! Whoopee! The children appeared a little too eager to go to bed, but I did not suspect anything at the time!

So here we were, eight young adults dancing and drinking at the Casino! We had an agreement that one couple would walk back to the boats, every half hour, to check on the children and talk to the baby sitters! Little did we know that we the parents were victims of a juvenile, covert operation that was planned and executed with exactitude reminiscent of the Green Barret! Yes that’s right… No military operation was ever planned and executed with such precision, cooperation, and discipline!

The conspiracy came to life when the children conned the baby sitters into letting them “party” as soon as the parents walked three blocks away to the Davis Park Casino. So! We the parents walked away and the party began behind our backs! LOL! Our children were drinking soda, eating chips, socializing, singing, dancing, and listening to music.

Let’s call this para military effort, “Operation Casino!” The partying was going great at both ends, but the children had to do something about the parental visits every half hour! OK! No problem! I am an Engineer, and that problem solving mentality transferred to my children… At 8 years old, they were capable of pulling off “Operation Casino.” The military precision was amazing… It was good enough to make Oliver North smile!

The children defined a reconnaissance squad operation and procured the equipment necessary to accomplish their mission! They assigned two man/ women, Recon Squads that proceeded to “High Ground,” which was the fly bridge of my boat, every 15 minutes! The Recon Squads took turns monitoring the boardwalk that went from the Casino, which is up on a hill, to the Marina area, below. The young soldiers requisitioned two pairs of binoculars to monitor their objective, along with lots of Chips and Dip! LOL! OMG! We created monsters! LOL!

As soon as any parent was spotted by the Recon Squad, general quarters was sounded, but instead of proceeding to the main deck, all hands went back to their beds and pretended to be sleeping!
The recon squad successfully warded off 6 enemy attacks, and did a commendable job protecting their covert Partying Operation! The next morning when everyone was enjoying breakfast, the children were smiling “from ear to ear”… I wonder why! “Operation Casino,” was a smashing success! OMG! Only 9 years old! LOL!

Please listen to the General Quarters alarm below!

Windsurfing In Patchogue NY
Ben Vitale



A few weeks ago I was went to the shore of the Great South Bay, in Patchogue, New York to see if the water was rough or calm.  Why would I do that? Hummm! For many decades I have been a boating enthusiast! Well… This may not be totally true! I actually used my boat as a camper every weekend and holiday during the summer! Every Friday night I drove my boat across the Great South Bay, to Davis Park, a small beach community on Fire Island. To be honest, I really liked to “Party.” The rough water was a necessary evil that I had to deal with in order to go to Davis Park! “To be honest… I would never survive a minute on the “Deadliest Catch.”…  LOL!

When I arrived at the water, the Bay was rough! I visualized it as if it were a scene from “The Deadliest Catch” LOL! I enjoy watching the rough water, only through the eye of my camera, and from the safety of the Dock! LOL!

When the water is rough, you may be lucky enough to see our own resident windsurfing expert, performing for his own enjoyment! I have on many occasions enjoyed the windsurfing performance, from the safety of the Sandspit marina! LOL! For years I have been wondering… “Who is that guy?” “Could it be Clark Kent?” LOL! Unlike other viewings of his Olympic class windsurfing, I did actually get to talk to our own world class athlete!

After the performance was over, I went up to our local world class windsurfing expert and introduced myself. I said… Wow! What is your name? he said “Eric Anderson,… “I own “Clayton Richards Stove and Fireplace.” in Patchogue! http://wwwclaytonrichardsstovesandfireplaces.com/ I said “I admire your windsurfing skill … Do you windsurf in competition?” He said, no… I only do it for my own enjoyment! I windsurf with my friends, and we enjoy racing with each other, and trying jumps. 

I said… “I don’t know how you can windsurf in this rough water? I wouldn’t bring my boat out in this rough weather!” There was a pause in our conversation… He said, “Neither would I… And I own a good boat!” I believe that under the control of an expert, a Sailboard can deal with large waves more effectively than my boat can! It appears that the Sailboard cuts through the waves as opposed to driving over the tops of waves!


Friends and residents; pay attention to the wind! When the wind is howling, you might want to take a ride to the Sandspit marina and possibly catch a performance from our own local windsurfing expert!

Beware of Facebook Cloning Hacker!
Ben Vitale


Do not automatically accept a “Friend Request” on Facebook. Before you accept a friend request you must first search through your existing friend list, and make sure that the new friend request is not a cloned copy of one of your existing Facebook friends.

A few weeks ago I accepted a friend request from someone who was already listed on my Facebook friend list! OK! I figured that he may have had problems with his account and was forced to re-friend the people on his old friend list! Not true! The second friend request was actually from a hacker that cloned the account of someone that was already on my friend list! The hacker knew that because the person was already on my friend list, I would be conducive to listening to what he had to say!

After accepting a redundant friend request, that same person (the hacker) contacted me via the Facebook Chat line, pretending to be my friend, and wanted to send me a check for 250,000 dollars, up front, with no questions asked! Hummm! Some Billionaire had to dispose of a few billion dollars, immediately or else he would lose a fortune on his tax return! Hummm! Great story! Truly an “offer I could not refuse!” That was an offer that was good enough to make “Don Corleone” smile! LOL!
   
In order to receive this money, all I had to do was open up a special type of joint account with my local bank. As this type of scam goes, the hacker would withdraw money from this account, and I would be responsible to pay it back!

At a very young age I accepted a truism from my friend’s father, that I still believe today. “Santa Clause is dead!” Hummm… Don’t tell this to your young children! LOL! 

I sort of knew that my friend, who is part of my alumni group, would not get involved with issues such as this one. So… While talking to the scammer on the Facebook chat line I asked the following question… “Who were you going out with during your senior year in high school?“ The hacker literally lost it! LOL! The hacker lost the chess game! LOL! How dare you expose me as a fraud! LOL!


This incident was reported to Facebook, and the redundant friend’s account was deleted! It is best to proceed with issues such as this one as if Santa Clause is dead! In reality, I do believe in Santa! LOL! Please send presents! LOL!

You've got to see this MSNBC Video! I can't believe that I am actually seeing this!

MSNBC exposes an alleged Democratic Party Rigged System of delegate selection. 

It's about time that somebody exposed this system where the votes do not count!
