That's the way I remember it too, Bond. I'm still trying to figure out how Mild Bill De Blasio is going to explain away the rising murder rate. That should be entertaining for everyone except the poor people in the thugs' line of fire.
Exactly.

dear...must learn to proofread, d__n it all!
Actually, I don't think anyone has to wait that long. There's nothing like a sucking chest wound caused by a Smith & Wesson to convince your average socioeconomically deprived urban youth that maybe he should go into a more remunerative form of crime like politics,

Why would a left wing ideologue govern from the middle? He has what he wants: power. He intends to use it to advance his causes. Why govern from the middle when you view your election as a validation of everything you hold dead, no matter how dumb those things are?

Isaac, Tammany Hall learned long ago that if you hand out goodies, people will vote for you every time. They couldn't care less about false narratives.

Nope, not a damn thing, unfortunately.

Dann, the rich are going nowhere, at least not the NYC rich. De Blasio wants to soak the rich for his kindergarten scheme and to do that he needs Albany's permission and he isn't likely to get it. Cuomo is up for re-election next year and he doesn't want to jack up tax rates until after November of next year. Higher taxes and millions of people losing their employer based insurance do not make for a happy electorate or another term and no one knows that better than Cuomo does.

"Yes the Obamacare rollout's been a mess but the GOP has a hand in that too and they won't be able to skate on that either. " Really? No Republican voted for it, the House Republicans tried to shut down the government rather than fund it, and somehow or other the GOP has had a hand in the mess? Really? Should we blame the faulty rollout on George W. Bush as well? Isn't he the all purpose excuse for why everything goes wrong in this country these days? It's amazing that a man who hasn't been President for five years has such enormous power. Maybe if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue took off his tinfoil hat, he's stop receiving telepathic messages from his predecessor and start to think for himself.

People at the bottom end of the financial spectrum got to go home without getting their heads blown off. As for that huge gap, it's what happens when you drive manufacturing out of the city and try to base the city's economy on finance, insurance, and real estate. If you're not a player in any of those markets, then you got to get by any way you can.
