Money its the root of all evil. Behind every great fortune lies a great crime. Or at least an unfair advantage.
Thats the gist of the liberals creed and justification for their war on wealth. The other half of their view holds that the poor are innocent victims of lifes rigged game.
Their narrative of evil winners and noble losers clears the way for self-heroic redeemers. They will deliver social justice by meting out punishment and spreading the wealth around. Their virtue entitles them to power.
It sounds like a comic-book view of life, but its the reality of liberalism today. And thanks to the de Blasio administration, New Yorkers are getting a bitter taste of its divisive nature. So much so that talk about quitting Gotham is surging in some circles.
One friend says 10 wealthy people have told him they are leaving and another says disgusted New Yorkers bought $1 billion in residential property in Florida since the November election. The Sunshine State confers an automatic tax cut of about 12 percent because it has no city or state income tax, nor does it have an inheritance tax....

Rich NYC libs feel threatened in the DeBlasio era and hate paying taxes so they move to Palm Beach country.
Billy Joel was only 3 years off....
You know those lights were bright on Broadway
That was so many years ago
Before we all lived here in Florida
Before the Mafia took over Mexico
There are not many who remember
They say a handful still survive
To tell the world about
The way the lights went out
And keep the memory alive
Didn’t they know they were voting for a tax increaser???
Why move when they are gonna vote for another tax increaser in the next state!!!!
sorry, mr. goodwin. that's not accurate.
the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.(1 Timothy 6:10)
Well, De Blasio was overwhelming elected by NY’ers, so I only feel sympathy for those voters who saw him for what he is. Any one who cast a ballot for that fool deserves what they are getting now and can get stuffed, as far as I am concerned.
The bad part for the rest of us is, those folks fleeing to Florida are likely to retain their liberal ways when they finish relocated, further pushing one reliably red Florida further into Purplish Blue.
Because they’re stupid idiots who prefer tax increases, just not on themselves.
The only wealthy who still live in NYC after all the other tax-and-rob schemes of Democrats are either liberals themselves or simply too stupid to be trusted with vast sums of money. Anyone wealthy and intelligent already fled New York a long time ago. Some parts of California are almost the same situation.
Enjoy sleeping in your own filth, liberals.
>Money its the root of all evil.<
Dumbass NYT, if you are going to quote scripture, at least do it correctly.
It is ‘the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.’
But leftist-socialists have no problem with stealing and coveting.
This is the biggets myth of all. Di Blasio is not anti-rich. He is totally devoted to making New York City serve his ultra-rich cronies. Everything he does is to that end.
Bed. Made. Lie in it.
This one’s not on the Times. It’s from the NY Post.
It’s all about being “your brother’s keeper” as per Obama.
I guess the South is about to experience the second wave of carpetbaggers from the north. They have fouled their nest and now have decided to move south and foul ours with their silly ideas. Each southern state needs its own border patrols to keep out the plague carriers.
Typical leftist. Others should pay higher taxes, but not themselves
If you’re rich, you can pretty much live anywhere.
So, if rich people are living in New York City, there must be a reason - fine restaurants, nightlife, Broadway, museums, etc.
The question is how much they’re willing to keep paying for all that. Cheaper to live elsewhere and only visit NYC .... once the rich start realizing that, NYC is really screwed ....
Boy I’m glad I have a full stock of popcorn, the New York comedy show is just beginning.
They will move out of NYC and then join the far left in FL. because of social issues.

He was overwhelmingly elected by the 20% who bothered to vote. But it did seem to be his turn.
Well, that is a fair point. I hadn’t realized turnout was that low. Yikes.
> Because theyre stupid idiots who prefer tax increases, just not on themselves.
Bingo. And they stupidly beliece that the government is spending the money wisely hile they are secretly finding ways to stuff it in their own corrupt back pockets. Democrat 0 supporting idiots.

These progressives may be leaving NY as a result of progressive policies, but they will only take those same progressive policies with them.
One only needs to see Washington, Oregon, and Colorado.
“Money its the root of all evil. Behind every great fortune lies a great crime. Or at least an unfair advantage. Thats the gist of the liberals creed and justification for their war on wealth.”
these libtards are more than well off, so I truly don’t understand how they hold their thought process about money. Must be “old money” that they never had to work for.
“The question is how much theyre willing to keep paying for all that. Cheaper to live elsewhere and only visit NYC .... once the rich start realizing that, NYC is really screwed ...”
They have already realized it, and NYC is really screwed. A lot of money left NYC during the Dinkins administration, then Rudy & Bloomberg were able to keep it inhabitable (but still expensive) for a few more years. The city is bleeding Americans and taxpayers (individual and corporate), and has resorted to the “sanctuary city” BS so they don’t have to close down their school system. When DeBlasio’s opponent (a liberal RINO) resorted to harkening back to the Dinkins days as a scare tactic leading up to the election, analysts say it failed because so many people currently in NYC weren’t even there back then (20 years ago); it now has the multi-generational welfare population living next to an imported Third World population. The liberal 1%ers remaining are the target of the new tax scheme, but they have no numbers to oppose it; they will pay, or they will leave.
Texans are sick of being invaded by the poor from Mexico and the Socialists from California. We certainly don’t need the Leftists from New York. Let Florida have them.
There is a logic disconnect in your statement. One can not assume those rich folks leaving voted for the communist.
Actually, it was those who wanted to share the rich peoples wealth that voted for the communist.
Having listened to Rush all these years, one wonders how the rich can escape the taxes. If they maintain an income stream derived in NYC they will be followed to Florida by the NYC tax thieves. Rush apparently gets audited every year and has ceased going to the city at all in order to hold the tax harassers at bay.
I always wondered why the title was ‘Miami 2017’ (or as I remember it). That was a prediction?
NYC has been such and ugly wart on this country I just hope they have a Mayor that will do to them what Colmean Young did to Detroit.
“Rich NYC libs feel threatened in the DeBlasio era and hate paying taxes so they move to Palm Beach country.”
Sooo, guess I’m confused. I thought these very same people put are who put this guy in office?
Reliably red? Florida went to Obama the last two elections.
Sounds like Blasio needs to erect a Berlin wall around NYC to keep those greedy rich guys from taking ‘the peoples $$$’ out of the city.
Isn’t it ironic how the Moochers and the Takers and their pimps attack the wealth creators, the builders and the makers but ignore the wealthy celebrity liberals in the sports and entertainment world, the dot.com billionaires and the wealthy liberals with inherited fortunes?
Money is not the root of all evil. ENVY of other people’s money is the root of all evil.
When the rich leave and take their money with them, who will be paying for all those “takers” left behind? Wanna guess who that will be?
Did they say they were quoting scripture?
NY and Kaliforny both can fail and default because I no longer care what happens to them. I care about the Conservatives there but they can always move to a Conservative state.
Only 23% of those that could vote... did vote.
