New????

Oh yeah.  This guy isn't just a liberal, he is an open and avowed Marxist.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

Oh yeah...he has run specifically on bringing in a new era of Progressive values to NYC.  Essentially, Occupy New York is now the Mayor....

I was in NYC last year and it amazed me that I didn't encounter one bum panhandler.  You can't go to Chicago without being harassed by bums.

The Sun Times has a section called "Homicide Report" since there are about 8 murders a day in Chicago. 

Well NYC by electing a commie who makes Nanny Bloomberg look like a Ted Cruz, you are going to become the new Chicago.

Kudos to my old friend Bill de Blasio on his huge win, and to his media man, John Del Cecato, whose brilliant ads helped pave the way.

Nah, it'll just be an obscene version of Back to the Future:  NYC will shortly be returning to the "heyday" of the 1970s.

Off-topic, but if one has the skills to earn a living in New York City, one can do as well or better elsewhere.

Why not get out while the gettin's good?

One can even continue to earn that living in NYC while enjoying the fruits of that earning elsewhere, and without paying NYC income taxes.  For the $242 price of a monthly LIRR ticket I get to NYC in 35 minutes, do my thing, and get back out to my relatively tax-free home in Nassau County.  12 * $242 = $2,904, which is less than the $3k or so I paid in NYC tax last year, and last year was a really bad one income-wise.

Intelligentsia are the first targets, EJ. Now that you've got yours are you ready to give up your "stuff" to the Commies, Donna?

It's what Americans want.

We are officially a minority, with no protection. Quite the opposite, our mere existence is reason enough for liberals to blame all ills, all failures on us.

We are watching an epic tragedy play out before us.

It does often appear that human beings are compelled by their nature to hit rock bottom before realizing they've taken a bad turn.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Why NYC deserves whatever happens to it: after the president topped 80 percent in the city in 2008 and 2012.

Two predictions prior to the outset:

!. Tax revenues to the city will decrease as a result of his actions and

2. The number of taxpayers residing in the city will be lower as well.

This is the sort of thing that happens in a Batman movie immediately before the hooligans begin deconstructing the city piece by piece as the police shrug their shoulders and housewives cower behind locked doors.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
