Skip to comments.Washington & Wall Street: Trouble Ahead for New York City
Posted on 09/25/2013 7:04:57 AM PDT by Zakeet
The Democratic front-runner for Mayor is Bill de Blasio, a socialist from Brooklyn, who lives in a $1.1 million row house in Park Slope. George Orwell reminds us in the classic book Animal Farm that some animals are more equal than others. De Blasio certainly fits that mold. He takes his political queues from the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Keep in mind that De Blasio has never had a real job and is a professional politician who says that fighting for equality was his lifes work. No surprise, then, that President Barack Obama, who himself has never had a real job, endorsed his candidacy.

... never had a productive job or earned a paycheck in the private sector ... avowed democratic socialist ... political philosophy inspired by Che Guevara and Fidel Castro ... actively worked in the past in support of the Sandinistas ... caves in to unions ... wants to soak the rich banksters to pay for social programs! This libtard is not just better than Hillary and Chucky ... he's perfect!
They get what they deserve.
Well, they had a choice, but chose not to think outside the boxers...
NYC will get exactly the kind of mayor it deserves.
While Park Slope is a nicer neighborhood in Brooklyn, “The average sale price of a home in Manhattan last year was $1.46 million, while the average sale price for a new home in the United States was just under $230,000.” Brooklyn is number two behind Manhattan for home prices in NYC.
New York as a city is also very peculiar because upscale homes and apartments might be on one end of block, with low end roach motels on the other end.
Plus the standard of living cost in NYC is about twice the national average.
I’m not saying that we should cut this commie douchebag any slack, but his living conditions aren’t special.
This is true. I don't live too far from de Blasio, and his house is nothing special. Also, keep in mind that property values in Park Slope (including the area of Park Slope where he lives) have skyrocketed in the past decade or so - depending on when they moved in, it's likely they paid much, much less than $1.1 million. I know people in the area who bought places for ~100k that are now worth $2m+.
The stock exchange can easily be mover to the USA.........
Agree. I know some who moved into Park Slope when it was similar to Crown Heights.
