Skip to comments.New York City: A Pay More, Get Less Sinkhole
Posted on 02/15/2014 10:35:42 AM PST by SeekAndFind
New York's dishonest governor, Andrew Cuomo, has made it eminently clear that there is no place for pro-life voters, or gun owners, in his sorry excuse for a state. This, along with the resounding failure of even moderate Democrats to distance themselves from this individual, shows there is no place for gun owners, Catholics, Orthodox Jews, or Evangelical Christians in the Democratic Party.
New York State's problems have a clearly identifiable source. Votes from the Big Rotten Apple put individuals like Andrew Cuomo, his father Mario, and Emperor's VIP Club Client 9 into office. Michael Bloomberg was a Kim Jong Un-wannabee who took Federal gun law enforcement into his own hands, and almost stepped onto the wrong side of Federal gun felony laws in the process. His replacement, Bill De Blasio, has made it clear that there is no place for productive businesses or citizens in his pay more, get less Socialist paradise.
De Blasio said people earning between $500,000 and one million dollars a year would see their taxes increase by an average of $973 a year. "[W]e do not ask more of the wealthy to punish success. We do it to create more success stories," he said.
Let's face the facts. New York City, just like other deep blue left-wing strongholds like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Detroit, is a collective parasite that leeches off the productive elements of the rest of their states along with their own residents. The first three cities are why New York, Illinois, and California are the worst places in the country to work or do business.

It's a common theme in all political discussions: Kick NYC out of the state. (and that's just a start).
RE: Kick NYC out of the state.
Actually as a Long Islander, we already have a budding secession from NY State movement.
As an upstate New Yorker, I must concur. No matter how much we bitch, no matter how many non-liberals (I can’t really say conservatives) we elect to the legislature, no matter how much debt is accumulated, we can’t overpower New York City. It is a lost cause.
First cousin to the "I'm not robbing you to make you poorer, but to make me richer" line.
“De Blasio said people earning between $500,000 and one million dollars a year would see their taxes increase by an average of $973 a year. “[W]e do not ask more of the wealthy to punish success. We do it to create more success stories,” he said.”
Taxing the rich does not create more success stories by any stretch of the imagination. In short, you re doing it wrong.
Or is Cuomo's hatred reserved for honest citizens who own guns or citizens who are Catholics, Orthodox Jews, and Evangelical Christians?
Then again it's hard to understand the minds of haters like Andrew Cuomo...
It makes no sense that he prefers criminals to traditional Americans - does it? Is CCuomo a monster?
I lived in NYC (Marxhattan) for 22 years. Left 3 years ago. I’m therefore an expert. It’s easy to understand why homosexuals, minorities, illegals and your run-of-the-mill freaks gravitate to the place. My best explanation for heterosexual and productive leftists staying there is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome.
Wouldn’t Nassau and Suffolk counties want to join the marginally less bad Connecticut?
