I guess he wasted no time stopping the horse drawn carriages in Central Park.

Stunning.  My despair for us as a viable nation deepens.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

New York City could sink into the East River and the populace in flyover country wouldn't give it  a second thought.

Pretentious, arrogant, chip-on-the-shoulder residents who look down their noses at what they perceive to be the bottom-dwellers to the West.

Enjoy watching elbows, shoesoles and assholes of those getting the hell out of "the city that never sleeps."

It's quickly becoming apparent that if you're not bi-racial, or some dark ethnic, or a fanook, or an advocate for claiming wealth you didn't earn for yourself, you're on the outside looking in in Obammy's America.

I'm ready to stop looking in.  Let's put a fence around this bunch and call it a zoo.

I wouldn't.  NYC is sui generis and is, essentially, doing nothing more than returning to its roots, the ooze that Giuliani found it in so many years ago.  The interesting thing to watch will be the degree to which the only money-source for NYC - Wall Street - starts moving out of the city; once you're out of NYC you no longer pay NYC local income tax (provided you're not stupid enough to maintain an apartment for certain "affairs").  Traders and capital are much more mobile than they were the last time NYC had a committed socialist as mayor, so it'll be interesting to see how many of them decide not to stick around this time.

Poor Aligncare. My heart goes out to him and it's not just a matter of money. An administration like this will give a green light to the worst social elements since its internal ideology has it they are the way they are due to the conditions imposed by others and, besides, they are entitled to retaliate for past injustices.

NYC is about to become a most unsafe place, particularly for anyone who shows signs of success, especially white people, if I don't miss my guess.
