Hannity: Escapes from New York
FM Talk 100.5 | 01/20/2014

Posted on 01/20/2014 12:29:13 PM PST by cll

In his opening monologue today, Sean Hannity announced that he is moving out of New York City, Long Island and New York State altogether for maybe Florida or Texas.

Born and raised in New York, Hannity would follow other conservative stars like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck out of the Empire State because of high taxes, high regulation and lack of freedom.

Can’t blame him. And his views make him unwelcome, at least per the Governor.

Yeah, but it’s hard to uproot from your roots and move your kids, wife etc. from all their friends and family. Too bad New York has gotten so bad. Good luck to them.

Obviously handing himself a nice raise.

Maybe because Generalissimo Cuomo says “extreme” conservatives aren’t welcome in NY?

In the meantime, De Blasio and Cuomo will let in all the freeloaders for the goodies.

The state will go to hell.

Good for Texas and others who have the right regimine

Yep. Hannity is supposedly one of the good guys, and I’m glad for him and his family—but such a move isn’t easy.

Can’t blame him.

Me neither. The only problem I see is that when New Yorkers move to Florida or Texas, they frequently try to convert those places to New York.

Finally an enough is enough moment for Hannity.

Probably a hard move for him, but a smart move.

At his income level, his average rate is probably not far below the marginal rate.

City, state, and federal income taxes. What was the name of that idiot governor that was happy Rush left? He said if he’d known he was leaving he would have raised taxes earlier to get rid of him.

Quite true; look at North Carolina. Not picking on Hannity, as I doubt he will be part of this practice. But it is just another measure of the collective stupidity of the American people. Just like the college teaching assistants who backed 0bama, and now they have their hours cut because of 0bamacare. They want ham trees, candyland, 0bamaphones and the consequence free lifestyle. They just don't make the connection to reality when it bites them in the butt.

According to Rush it’s not as easy as just moving. He says NY State audited his taxes for years after he left.

I’m glad for Sean and his family. He’ll be happy elsewhere and be able to hold on to his money. I believe his parents are deceased so he doesn’t have to look after them.

Can’t wait myself to get out of NJ. I live in a nice little town (Republican) but I just can’t stand the state government any more. But I have an elderly parent who comes from a family of extreme longevity...

Or was it actually because the state governor specifically asked undesirables like him to leave. I hope Cuomo chokes on Bawney Fwank.

I don’t blame him. That mobbed-up scumbag Cuomo has declared war on conservatives and told us we aren’t welcome in his state. I’ll keep that in mind when spending my tourist (fat chance) and consumer products dollars. FU, Cuomo.

Now Texas and every other Red State needs to start cutting back on the state sponsored freebie programs while doing everything in their power to get the parasites on them moved to “people`s utopias” like New York or Chicago.

NY can indeed go off the deep end... and any Patriot still there should relocate if possible to more Conservative - American - states.

We need to stick together.

“Ha! Yes, good luck to the Hannity family. I hope NY goes off the deep end, however, don’t want all the lefties coming to Texas!”

That’s the problem the entire rest of the country has with the morons inhabiting the Northeastern States. They $hit in their own nests, so they move, and start the process all over not ever being able to comprehend that they are doing it to themselves. They continue to believe that eventually, Liberalism/Marxism will work if only the “right people” are put in charge.

Bingo! Fox News is based in NY, if he’s moving it’s because he’s soon to be out of work.

Cuomo is pulling out the war plan that the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance wrote when Rush departed.

Tactic #1: Implement cavity search of subject's tax returns for the past 7 years.

Tactic #2: Repeat Tactic #1 next year.

Tactic #3: Repeat Tactic #2.

Not really, like junk stuff you throw to the curb before you move, it is best to throw political leanings as well or in other words, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do.”

NY ruled by Commies has to truly suck.

New York will quickly become Little Detroit or Little Chicago and there won't be any turning back as it deteriorates.
The demographics will free wheel downhill quickly with their commie mayor.
