Yes.   New Jersey will become the bedroom community of New York City.  High-earning New York residents already pay 62% of their income in taxes and this sonofabitch wants more.

If they give it to him, they're fools.

Historic Bible goes missing after de Blasio swearing in

How much more unorganized can the liberals get, to lose such a valuable Bible? Or, did someone try to steal it? I wonder where it was found?

New Yorkers must be all fools they voted this piss head into office. I guess they are willing to give a majority of their wages to government whether it is city state or federal. I say let them go down with him they are the most liberal city folk in the nation. They may make great wages but they have homes mostly apartments or condos not near as big as our homes and they also cost way over their value and since the cost of living there is so high their wages don't go as far as ours out in the boonies. Plus they pay more taxes all to live in a very claustrophobic city and I could care less about their cosmopolitan lives I hate cities. All of them are mostly dirty hell holes except for a few streets the wealthy live on. I do not like nor have ever liked New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Kansas City St Louis or San Francisco. I don't mind Tulsa, Dallas, San Diego and Portland plus a few other smaller cities. I have lived in a few of these cities so I know what I am talking about and have visited everyone of them and many more across this nation and why anyone wants to actually live in a city is beyond me work in one if you have to but commuting is the only way to go if you want sane living. I hope they all enjoy their new mayor they elected him.

San Diego is kind of nice in an "eccentric Uncle" sort of way. Doesn't really feel much like a city.

Let's just "hope" this causes an exodus of the "huddled masses" and "tempest tossed" from NJ to NYC where they belong.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

It occurs to me upon the inauguration of De Blasio that Communists in America don't even bother to hide it any more. What's more, they can even run on the communist platform and win overwhelmingly in America's financial center!!!!! The American presidency, the New York City mayoralty. Lordy, Lordy, Lordy! The progressives have won.

New Jersey has been a NYC bedroom community of NYC for a hundred years.  I grew up in one.   NJ property taxes are horrendously legendary-nobody is going to escape anything, moving there.

I have to agree, except for the "painfully" part.  It will be fun watching the smug and insufferably liberal West Side types suffering under this guy.  AC, you have my sympathies.

NJ is a bedroom community, in part because it became more attractive to NY'ers escaping and bringing their voting habits to our state.  Sound familiar?  Unfortunately, we are being broadbrushed as the carriers of ill because they allow the Red State liberals to slink in the shadows and continue to vote for a progressive agenda or take the floor of a legislature fitted with a piss hose in support of abortion.

Pretty much. The only difference is that they learned long ago not to call it "Communism", or more correctly, collectivism.

It's not really communism any more. Most of us don't live on farms in this era, and any notion of collectivized agriculture has largely given way to Agribusiness: giant farm conglomerates dependent on state subsidizes, tax breaks, and inexpensive labor imported from... south of the border. Whatever you want to call it, it ain't "capitalism", either.

As for the service industry and dwindling manufacturing jobs at which most of us labor, they are increasingly subject to any number of the tens of thousands of Federal regulations passed since the 1960s. And of course, industry lobbyists are well-ensconced in Washington to try to protect their interests, often at the expense of others. Not much "capitalism" here, as well.

What we have instead in America today is not "communism" - a literally impossible form of economic organization originally envisioned by Marx, naturally resulting in shortages of everything except for starvation and firing squads - but rather a species of state socialism, which is still informed far more by Marx and Engels than by John Locke and Adam Smith. The individual and individual rights are being increasingly subsumed by the collective, through the power of the state, in the service of "needs", which are popularly imagined to trump personal freedoms.

New York City is about to become a laboratory in the promotion of full-blown collectivist ideology, marching under the banner of "Progressivism".

Let's see what happens.

Yep, Andy. That's pretty much it. I would've said all that, but I had to get up and go to work in Queens, New York, so that the collectivists have something to collect.  :th_10444:

Good luck - you guys are going to need it. On the other hand, I look forward to reading the NY papers on line (by which I mean the Post and Daily News, not the Times a/k/a "Pravda on the Hudson") to follow the unfolding catastrophe.

If massive unemployment, rampant crime and criminally corrupt government is the goal, then those are great role models.

True; it'll also be deja vu all over again in many respects, as NYC reverts to much of the idiocy of the 60s and 70s.  Before this is over David Dinkins will be grinning from ear to ear over the fact that he will no longer be the worst mayor of NYC.
