Extra, extra, read all about it. Not all New Yorkers have the same incomes! Not all have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams! And most gasp! dont live on Park Avenue or have nannies and housekeepers!
If this doesnt strike you as breathtaking news, then you didnt drink the Kool-Aid and join Bill de Blasios movement. I say movement because de Blasio doesnt just want to be mayor. He has discovered there is poverty in Gotham and many other pesky outcomes where some people do better than others. And he intends to end that disparity.
Fighting inequality and fighting economic injustice, as he put it, is what hes all about.
Good luck with that, but before New Yorkers jump onto the Democrats bound-for-utopia bandwagon, some history is required. We could start with Karl Marx, but wed just get lost trying to decode the incomprehensible differences among Marxists, Leninists and Trotskyites.
Instead, lets look at Cuba, which, strictly by the numbers, reflects the paradise de Blasio describes.

Detroit here they come
Unfortunately, most New Yorkers are too young to remember how dangerous the City was under Dinkins. We have been spoiled by 20 years of good, effectives mayors (Guiliani and Bloomberg).
DeBlasio is likely to be a worse mayor than Dinkins.
Bloomberg is not a good mayor. I had thought that nothing could be worse than the incompetent, corrupt Dinkins - because I couldn’t imagine something as terrible as Bloomberg. He is a lunatic petty tyrant, obsessed with bottles of soda instead of dealing with the city’s real problems.
I could add much more, but why waste time and bandwidth on this sorry POS?
Say what you will, but Rudy was a great mayor, warts and all.
DeBlasio would be to NYC what Odungo is to the entire U.S. We would be a microcosm. There just isn’t any farther to the left that you could go, he’s there. I just read today that DeBlasio has legally changed his name a couple of times. I wonder what kind of unstable churning mind does that?
