Good grief. her entire political career is centered around activism and grievance industry politics. and she is qualified to run a city???? New York can’t do any better than this crop of candidates?
So one texts pictures of his appendage and the other texts pictures of her toy?
I will be surprised if this nation lasts 20 more years.
When did she change the spelling of her last name?
well, if the choice is between a lesbian or a jew, isn’t that discriminatory against any of the white Christian heterosexuals who still remain in new York?
Here’s the problem most New Yorkers cause to themselves... they aren’t considering the ALTERNATIVE.
There are at least TWO BETTER ALTERNATIVES (relatively) than this Democrat lot.
One is Joe Lhota, the other John Catsamatidis.
Joe Lhota joined the administration of Mayor Rudy Giuliani, where he held several positions over Giuliani’s two terms. He first served as chief of staff to the deputy mayor for finance and economic development and that year was quickly was promoted to New York City finance commissioner. In 1995, he was selected as director of the office of management and budget. In 1998, Giuliani appointed Lhota to deputy mayor for operations.
Lhota served as Mayor Giuliani’s liaison to the White House, United States Congress, governor of New York, New York State Legislature and New York City Council. Additionally, he was responsible for oversight of the Citys relationships with the public employee unions and development of collective bargaining agreement strategies. Lhota, known as a problem solver while serving in city government, has an unparalleled knowledge of city government.”
As deputy mayor, Lhota served as the highest-ranking member of the Mayor’s core management team. On this team, Lhota developed and implemented the strategies and initiatives that accomplished the successful “turn-around” of New York City, which had been plagued by a high crime rate, sense of fear among citizens, reduction in social services, and high tax rates that were famously chronicled in the September 17, 1990, cover story of Time, “The Decline of New York.” Lhota also coordinated the City’s response to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
John Catsamatidis is a Greek-American businessman from New York City. He is the owner, president, chairman, and CEO of the Gristedes Foods, the largest grocery chain in Manhattan, and the Red Apple Group, a real estate company with about $700 million to $800 million in holdings.
Catsimatidis also owns the Hellenic Times, a Greek-American newspaper based in Manhattan.
He is also the chairman and CEO of the Red Apple Group subsidiary United Refining Company.
The Red Apple Group also has holdings in aviation and real estate interests in New York, Florida, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
BOTH the above alternatives offer something the Dem candidates do not have -— EXECUTIVE EXPERIENCE.
Yet, the Lamestream media just keeps focusing on the Lesbian and the Pervert. GO FIGURE.
And here’s the other thing... NYC keeps hearing about Eliot Spitzer’s run for NYC Comptroller.
New Yorkers don’t have to choose Sptizer. There is a BLACK REPUBLICAN who is much more qualified but NONE of the media would give him or his ideas the time or space.
His name is John Burnett.
The seventh child of Southern black migrants who met in New York, he was born in rough East New York (which he calls Vietnam) before the family moved to Queens Village. He now lives in Harlem.
Burnett was, he says, an oops baby. Pregnant at 43, his mother faced complications: Her doctor told her that if she had me she would die and I would die (this was 1969). My parents made the decision to have me.
The way I look at it, most people arent given a shot after theyre born; I wasnt given a shot before I was born.
His parents grew up in the Jim Crow South James in Durham, NC, and Mary in Savannah, Ga. Their experiences informs Burnetts mantra of No excuses How can I say, This is difficult, when my father had it 10 times as hard?
Starting out as a dishwasher, his dad did his job super fast so he could watch the cook. He learned to cook himself and eventually became the chef for an entire hospital. Even after becoming a Pentacostal pastor, he continued as a chef because he didnt believe in living off his congregation.
Burnett says, He always told me. Son, work to create your own breaks. Dont depend on anyone for anything.
After a year at Borough of Manhattan Community College, Burnett quit because he wasnt learning anything. With no degree, he still talked his way into a margin-analyst position at Dean Witter.
In eight years, he rose to a compliance position which immersed him in SEC, NYSE and state securities regulations. He then moved to Smith-Barney for another eight years, as manager of the Global Markets compliance division.
Then, still working full-time, he went back to school at night earning a BS degree in Leadership and Management from NYU, then an MBA from Cornell.
And now politics.
Hed bring a common-sense, no-nonsense approach to city investment: I believe in investing in an ethically and socially responsible manner [within reason] . . . If [say, green energy] is . . . earning at a comparable rate as other investments, sure Ill support it. If its only yielding a small percentage, say 2 percent and I need it to earn eight, my dollars arent going there. That would be a violation of my fiduciary responsibilities in favor of doing something nice and social.
SO, WHY DON’T PEOPLE EVER HEAR ABOUT THIS MAN? All we hear is Spitzer, Spitzer, Spitzer....
JOHN BURNETT FOR NEW YORK CITY COMPTROLLER:
If elected she/he/it will be the mayor of the “Big Wienie”.
Oh please. Thompson recently came out with “Trayvon got a raw deal, Zimmerman is guilty” garbage. Who needs someone who is obviously pandering to only ONE segment of the diverse NYC population? And the UFT endorses him, so he must be an ultra-lib.
A ‘Boston marriage’ in New York City’s highest office? God help us. ‘Entourage’ was insult enough.
So then that makes Christine the “husband”, or is each the “wife” to the other? Inquiring minds want to know.
You need the right kind of sense of humor to appreciate the spectacle of the former greatest city in the world being destroyed by perverts and bankers. ( Am I being redundant?)
An extremist anti-Christian, anti-decency lesbian for Mayor.... makes as much sense as anything else in NYC doesn’t it?
I already like him, he had roots in Durham, N.C, where I grew up!
When is this election ? Now is this a primary for both parties ? And the winners of each face a runoff or how does this work ?
That depends, so I hear, on which one wears the strap on.
