Skip to comments.Whoa there: NYC carriage horse ban is stalled
Posted on 04/22/2014 12:50:44 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York Citys horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years.
A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues. [ ]
What changed? For one, a media blitz led by actor Liam Neeson has portrayed the horse-drawn carriage industry as an iconic, romantic part of New York that provides about 400 jobs, many to Irish immigrants. In a series of editorials and TV interviews, he has said the operators treat their 200 working horses like their own children. [ ]
The next blow came when a series of city unionswho usually are de Blasios staunchest alliesbroke with the mayor, urging him to reconsider his decision in order to save not only the industrys hundreds of jobs but a profitable source of tourism.

Oh, and of course PETA went to Liam Neeson’s personal residence to protest and harass him.
Campaign contributor who wants a valuable piece of Manhattan real estate where the horses are housed...political payback...scumbag DeBlazio. This guy is trouble.
Oh that’s righ he’s a dim! Move along.
The Irony is that if Tyrants like DeBlasio get their way the only transport that will be left will be the Horse Drawn Buggy...
I didn’t like Bloomberg but the way this guy treated him at the inauguration told me all I need to know.
The guy is an ignorant,low class,piece of humanity.
Like all good Marxists, once they take power they go full out against the working class and the poor. First day in office he tried to institute a system where if taxis broke the ridiculous 25 mph speed limit in Manhattan they wouldn’t get paid, which as any cabbie will tell you, if you drove 25 mph you wouldn’t get paid anyway. Then he closed down charter schools because we don’t want those poor kids of single moms getting the same education as kids in private schools. Then he wanted to limit the amount of hotdog stands because by gum, those hot dog stand guys are ruling the city. Now he’s going after horse and carriage rides because of “animal cruelty” which of course liberals who keep dogs locked up in their tiny apartments all day fully support. Yes, those poor horses walking through a park all day surrounded by horrible grass and trees, and flowers, and eating, what horrors. What a crock, the real reason this jackass is doing it is so his buddy can make money on the electric cars they want to replace them with.
I eat my pizza with a fork, too.........NOT
DiBlasio is a literally Communist (as in supporter of the Sandinistas) control freak, who spends other people's money like a drunken sailor, couldn't manage a hot dog stand, and treats his mayoralty like a winning lottery ticket.
He should be following the horses with a shovel, but liberals think he's smart so they put him in charge of the city. A salted ham could do as well.
He’s a typical Marxist which to me is worse than electing a Nazi. Marxism is responsible for 100 million plus deaths. Nazism 25 million yet people are brainwashed into thinking Marxist means “sympathetic to the poor” but like I wrote above, this guy has done everything in his power since day one to screw over the poor. He is beyond a low class piece of humanity, he is rat filth times a thousand.
A salted ham could do as well.

Thank you! LOL! My first good laugh of the day!! :)
I take offense to that, Ive known plenty of drunken sailors, and as a whole, they tend to stop spending when they run out of their own money. /comedy
Do you see how the Leftists are so intent in making Life just this drudgery, like in the Serfdom days, removing “Chivalry” and “Romance” which created FUN for families —trying to make males and females the “same”. What a truly ugly, boring world this would be, without the ideas which were created from the Christian Worldview. Individuality/Uniqueness. Special qualities and roles for women and men. Their Natural Design-—when not thwarted, leads to efficiency and flourishing, happiness and creativity. Women, because of the concept of “Mary”, were put on a pedestal in Christian cultures....unlike all other cultures.
Movies (Disney) and others are trying to destroy the Maternal instincts and Male Maturity which leads to this dignity and love of one another. Without the love of a Mother, little children are truly warped and it makes it almost impossible to be loving, caring adults and love one’s own children. Without that “nurture”, cultures will collapse.
It is all for the narcissists like Al Gore, to live like Kings and dictate to everyone else—those icky little people who will have lives where energy is so high, they can’t even keep decently warm during the winters, much less have time to read to their own children.
Life is reduced to drudgery and no time for Leisure—extra Time (energy)—which led to the greatest ideas and inventions in the history of man. These “elites” want to control everything humans do—even the NATURAL things like have horses pulling buggies. Get children away from the Natural World-—in front of TVs and Computers-—away from Reality. It eliminates all the fun and Romance and traditions for their NWO. Where children will be reduced to drones and slavery (in artificial institutions aways from the Natural Loving Family to be programmed and “shaped” for “proper” Worldview)—and not understand all the geniuses and ideas of the past, or Traditions (so Marxists can make-up anything as “Truth” for the “group think”).
Individualism and uniqueness can not exist in collectives where only “one” way to think is allowed.
This Democrat ringer is really a mane-stream communist.
The sooner NYC voters take off their blinders and he gets whirlawayed, the better.
Throw him out on his Ascot!
I think I have a compromise that would be acceptable to New Yorkers. Keep the carriages, but instead of horses, have them pulled by scofflaws who got caught with sodas larger than 20 oz. Those fatties probably need the exercise anyway.
Also, at least the Nazis could get the trains to run on time. Marxists can’t even manage that.
The people of NYC have the government they deserve.
To bad he didn’t beat the snot out of them...
