I think that would be a pretty safe bet.

You know, just when you think people can’t be any more stupid or f***ed up, NYC elects this worthless subversive.

These really are “the times that try men’s souls...”, like Thomas Paine said...

No kidding!

The question is, just how much more of their Bravo Sierra are we willing to tolerate? When will they nail that tripwire?

You know, that Thomas Paine quote popping into my head made me go back and read “The American Crisis” again. This paragraph jumped out at me immediately:

“..I have as little superstition in me as any man living, but my secret opinion has ever been, and still is, that God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction, or leave them unsupportedly to perish, who have so earnestly and so repeatedly sought to avoid the calamities of war, by every decent method which wisdom could invent. Neither have I so much of the infidel in me, as to suppose that He has relinquished the government of the world, and given us up to the care of devils; and as I do not, I cannot see on what grounds the king of Britain can look up to heaven for help against us: a common murderer, a highwayman, or a house-breaker, has as good a pretence as he. ...

We come from an amazing and incredible group of people.

We, as Americans ought NEVER forget that, and the sacrifices of those people who came before us...

It wasn’t GIVEN to us; it was EARNED by those folks, who stood up in spite of horrific odds, and said:

“No.”

What Greatness our Founders had and embraced!

It’s a very sad fact that not one of individuals that currently occupy positions of power in our government would be worthy enough to polish the shoes of our Founders.

The fault for that lies with us.

:...not one of individuals that currently occupy positions of power in our government would be worthy enough to polish the shoes of our Founders....The fault for that lies with us.”

Well, faulting our own naivete for believing that all parties would abide by the rules of our system, yes. Also, the blame lies with not believing the leftards when they told us over and over again what they were going to do TO us once they got power. They meant it.

Here’s another para that stands out to me:

“...Once more we are again collected and collecting; our new army at both ends of the continent is recruiting fast, and we shall be able to open the next campaign with sixty thousand men, well armed and clothed.
This is our situation, and who will may know it. By perseverance and fortitude we have the prospect of a glorious issue; by cowardice and submission, the sad choice of a variety of evils- a ravaged country- a depopulated city- habitations without safety, and slavery without hope- our homes turned into barracks and bawdy-houses for Hessians, and a future race to provide for, whose fathers we shall doubt of...”

He may as well have been writing about us, right now, less the Hessian mercenaries.

Politicians sleeping with actresses is nothing new; Hollywood has always been the whorehouse of Washington DC.

NYC mayor Bill de Blasio has prominently featured his wife Chirlane McCray in his campaign literature and on his web site. Despite Ms. McCray’s front-and-center role in his campaign, for which she also serves as an unpaid advisor, one aspect of her life has thus far remained out of the public eye.

Prior to meeting Mr. de Blasio, Ms. McCray identified as a lesbian and had several long-term relationships with other women.


"Sure honey; invite your friends over anytime."

Sure, the city is full of idiots and leaches, but I hate to see this happening to all the good people who live there.

And LOT lived WHERE?


Genesis 18:22-25

The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the Lord.

23 Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24 What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25 Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
