New York Values?

New Yorkers are always startled and amazed to discover that the rest of the country doesn’t seem to like them very much.

They’re in an uproar because Ted Cruz said Donald Trump had “New York values,” alien to the people of the other 49 states. Well, I dunno–how much worse can they be than California values?

Let us stipulate that it was a stupid thing to say–but what did Senator Cruz mean by it? He’s not a stupid man, so he must have meant something. He also doesn’t have all that much experience in politics–but what did he mean? What are New York values?

I live in New Jersey, so I have to be kind of careful about casting stones.

Meaning no disrespect to the people of New York City–I presume Cruz was focused on the city, not the state–would it be unfair to say that New York values liberal politics, a parade for every identity voting group, obtrusive artsy-fartsyness, and an unshakeable conviction that their city is the real capitol of America and everybody else is merely peasants? It is, after all, the city that gives us Al Sharpton, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Wilhelm Jr. dba Mayor Bill DeBlasio (a Sandinista wannabe–how ridiculous is that?), and, saints preserve us, The New York Times. That’s a lot to have to answer for.

But what are Massachusetts values? Don’t ask! Seattle values? How about Chicago values?

The values that matter come from God’s word, and may be found in any city. Even in San Francisco. You can find Biblical “values”–y’know, I really don’t much care for that word–in New York, but you can’t find New York values in the Bible.

 


A New Way for Race-Hustling Idiots to be Offended

When it comes to finding trace amounts of imaginary racism to complain about,Pittsburgh is the place you want to be.

For the past 12 years–count ’em, twelve–city buses have carried the slogan, “Ziggin’ and Zaggin’.” Now persons with a gargantuan sense of entitlement are demanding that the slogans be removed because those words, spelled backwards (!), turn out to be racial slurs ( http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/06/proof_that_some_people_can_be_offended_by_anything.html ). Somehow no one noticed that twelve years ago.

Update: Catering to the complaints of dunderheads, Pittsburgh has ordered the read-’em-backwards-to-be-offended slogans to be removed from buses ( http://caveviews.blogs.com/cave_news/2015/06/slogan-ziggin-and-zaggin-removed-from-busses-in-pittsburgh.html ). Chalk up another win for Team Stupid.

Have you noticed that “Obama” spelled backwards almost makes “Ameba”? You’ve only got to change some letters, or else just say it real fast. Who can Al Sharpton sue for this? Who has to apologize?

Next they’ll be offended by anagrams. For instance, “this” can be arranged to spell out a vulgar synonym for doo-doo. And we’ll have to start calling ginger ale something else, too, to avoid racist overtones.

Stupidity is just like sin: it carries its own punishment.
