Quality of life plummets, taxes rocket — and New York City faces doom: Goodwin

By Michael Goodwin

“No man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.”

That’s how Gideon Tucker put it back in 1866, a New Yorker who knew Albany as a former legislator, secretary of state and judge.

His wisdom, as demonstrated repeatedly over the ages, is timeless.

Yet there is something different, and especially troubling, about this time. The possibility of permanent decline and the ultimate destruction of the New York we know is unmatched in modern memory.

With Republicans reduced to hecklers, Albany Democrats, oblivious or reckless or both, are marching toward the cliff in an Alfred E. Neuman, What, Me Worry? Way. The rising chorus of “Stop!” goes unheeded.

Washington is sending train loads of money to blue states to bail out their high tax, high spend habits. As longtime government guru Dick Ravitch writes in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, “Congress has been generous, allocating more than $12 billion to New York state, $6 billion to the city, $6 billion to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and $9 billion to the state’s schools.”

Quality of life IS plummeting.  I don't know of anyone who hasn't seen their costs of daily living increase significantly.  Not just a few dollars here and there,  but expenses are rising by hundreds a month and Sloe Joe has only been in office a couple of months.

GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.

Watch.

Have to agree.  Clearly many of our fellow citizens insist on supporting a political party that consistently demonstrates its malevolence in pursuit of untrammeled power.  When we maintain bonds of common citizenship with such people, subjecting ourselves to the same malevolence, we alone are to blame.

   I would be fine with Trump running for Mayor of NYC, if anybody can fix that place, it's Trump and He could finally get a return on his Investment.  Primaries are coming up June 22, he needen let this $hit lie.
No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
