Is there a state that’s short a governor?

I keep asking myself how long this crazy stuff can go on; and I don’t know the answer.

The March of Lunacy

Why do we have a “transgender” movement? Was there some kind of demand for it? Really? Why do you get kicked out of your job for saying only women can give birth to babies?

Why does the government tell you how many points your high school football team’s allowed to score? Why does the governor of New York insist there were no hurricanes until we came along with our SUVs and created Climate Change?

Who thinks it’s a good idea to keep the crazies in the driver’s seat?


Not a Satire–He Really Is That Stupid

So there’s New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on MSNBC a few days ago, masquerading as a normal human being. But of course the truth slipped out, as soon as he said “We didn’t have hurricanes” (or tornadoes or “superstorms”) before we had Climate Change, and, like, it would be “delusional” for anyone to disbelieve in it (https://pjmedia.com/video/andrew-cuomo-we-didnt-have-hurricanes-before-climate-change/).

Yeah, it’s the same Gov. Andrew Cuomo who tried to pass himself off as an illegal alien a year or two ago, and whose political creed is, “America was never that great.”

Living proof that no one’s too stupid to be governor of New York.

Anyway, there it is–liberalism in all its glory. No such thing as truth, no such thing as facts, no such thing as history. Say whatever you think it takes to get your way, and use brute force to silence your opponents.

What’s anybody’s excuse for voting for this man?


Flee High New York Taxes–and Get Audited

He’s after your money.

They can’t afford to build a Berlin Wall all around the state of New York to keep people in, but they’ve been doing the next best thing: if you move out of New York to escape high taxes, they’ll audit you (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-york-goes-after-residents-fleeing-overtaxed-blue-state-for-low-tax-states-with-intrusive-audits).

Far Left New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo laments, “This is the flip side [of federal tax cut legislation]. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave.”

Duh–!

New York has a $2.3 billion budget deficit, and, in recent years, has lost 48,000 residents who fled the state’s high tax regime, where the top 1 percent pay nearly half the taxes in the state. Illinois, another Blue State paradise, has lost 45,000 residents.

“The rich” don’t want to stay there and get raped, so they leave; and New York pursues them with “intrusive audits,” calling them “defectors.” Iron Curtain, anyone?

But they can’t lower the taxes, because then the Democrat Party couldn’t dole out free stuff to its voting base.

If they could afford to build a wall, they would.


Another Blogger Censored by Facebook

The puppy is here to protect me from being censored.

Our friend Caralyn, at beautybeyondbones.com , is the latest to be censored by Facebook–simply for taking a pro-life stance against New York’s new law permitting late-term abortion right up until the moment of birth.

Caralyn posted what she describes as “a passionately pro-life” message on her blog, “Nightmare in New York” (https://beautybeyondbones.com/2019/01/28/andrew-cuomo-nightmare-in-new-york/), on Jan. 28. It was passionate, all right; but it contained no incitement to violence, no profanity, no personal abuse of anyone involved. She merely voiced an opinion shared by tens of millions of Americans. In short, there was nothing there that invited censorship; but Facebook banned her anyway. Four times she tried to advertise her post; four times Facebook shut her down.

“Evil is on the prowl in New York,” she wrote. She was appalled by the enthusiasm with which Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed abortion expansion into law. Cuomo, as she pointed out, is “a professing Catholic”; and she strongly criticized New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan who “has done nothing publicly” to, er, remind Cuomo that what he has advocated is a sin–murder–and dramatically opposed to all Catholic teachings.

What? She’s not allowed to say that? You can think it, but you can’t say it? What kind of public discussion of a controversial issue bans a whole side of the argument?

Doctrinaire “conservatives,” who never seem all that interested in conserving anything, will disagree with me: but I’m now convinced that the social media giants, including Facebook, need to be subjected to some kind of antitrust action. They are functioning as a monopoly, trying to ensure that only Far Left opinions can be published. Given the importance of the social media in what ought to be a public dialogue, it must not be allowed to be a monopoly. Trump administration, we need you to put a stop to this.

If all the news outlets in America were owned by the same few people, and presented only one side of any issue, and stifled all dissent, we would think our country was being very poorly served. That is not what our founders intended when they wrote freedom of the press into the First Amendment.

I can only believe that the left-wing social media resort to censorship because they’re afraid our side will win the argument.


Busted! For Wet Willy

Image result for images of a wet willy

My wife, who must have had a much more sophisticated childhood than mine, had to tell me what a “wet willy” is: I had never heard of it. “You wet your pinky and stick it in someone’s ear,” she explains.

I’m glad we’ve got that cleared up, because now I can understand this news story. A Florida man has been arrested and charged with battery for allegedly giving his girlfriend a wet willy.

I don’t know how seriously they take that, down in Florida, but–

URGENT BREAKING NEWS!!

House Democrats have vowed to “put an end to the wet willy” by enacting strict wet willy laws. Leading Democrats have also threatened “to unleash David Hogg on anyone who even thinks about trying to defend this disgusting habit.” And a prominent feminist, Professor Belinda Crank, has condemned the wet willy as “the creation of the archiarchy.” Hillary Clinton has excoriated President Donald Trump for “using the office of the president to foster a wet willy culture.”

Said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, “Until we can build bigger prisons, we’ll have to parole ordinary felons, like armed robbers, murderers, and rapists, to make room for wet willy-doers, Climate Change deniers, and racist transphobe biggits who insist on using the wrong pronouns.”


NY Governor: ‘I’m Undocumented’

Image result for images of foolish andrew cuomo

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose mother and father were both born in New York City, and who himself was born there, embarrassed even his fellow leftids a few days ago by claiming to be an illegal alien (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/19/andrew-cuomo-claims-hes-undocumented-challenges-officials-to-deport-him.html).

“I’m undocumented,” prattled the Democrat governor, and dared federal officials to deport him. This is the same Andrew Cuomo, whose father, Mario, was also governor of New York: the same Andrew Cuomo who once said there was no place for conservatives in his state.

Even “immigrant” groups jumped on his statement, and demanded he apologize. Said one spokesman, “It’s incredible that the governor would try to claim to have shared our experience.” Well, identity politics does get out of hand sometimes.

But wouldn’t that be cool if the feds found some way they could deport him? Not a dry eye in the house!


We Want Our History

First the statues, then the books… that’s how they do it

To be ignorant of history is to be condemned to a perpetual childhood. If you really are a child, this is not so bad. But what kind of adult wants to live this way?

The Democrat war on history continues in New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo has asked the Army to remove Confederate street names from Fort Hamilton (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/08/16/fort-hamilton-church-lee-plaques/)–because, he says, men like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson “fought to protect slavery.”

For the record, Jackson never owned a slave in his life; and Lee, before going to war, freed the slaves he’d inherited from his family because he most certainly did not want anyone to say that he, personally, was fighting to protect slavery. But Democrats don’t care about the truth.

New York Mayor Warren Wilhelm, who uses the alias “Bill DeBlasio,” says the city will “conduct a 90-day review of all symbols of hate on city property.” He ought to start by throwing out all the mirrors in Gracie Mansion.

And a church in Brooklyn has removed a plaque from a maple tree planted there by Lee almost 20 years before the Civil War.

Mark Steyn calls this a conscious effort to thoroughly de-legitimize all of U.S. history, an act of willful barbarism. He has called it what it is.

And the question must be asked: Why are we permitting this? Okay, I understand, Democrats and other leftids hate America and want to turn it into something else, with themselves as its rulers. But what about the rest of us? Why do we allow this to go forward? Why do we consent to be governed by scoundrels and cowards who refuse to protect our nation’s history?

The war on the dead continues, and here we are with our hands in our pockets, being very small and quiet.


Wahoo! Free College!

Your tax dollars at work!

If you live in New York state and have been wondering how you would ever get that Gender Studies degree that you wanted to much, but couldn’t afford, wonder no more!

Because collidge is, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo says, the new high school, and literally everybody’s gotta go to collidge, the state has ponied up $163 million in tax monies to provide free tuition at any state-run four-year university or two-year community collidge–if your family does not earn more than $125,000 a year ( http://www.csmonitor.com/EqualEd/2017/0410/A-first-New-York-will-offer-free-tuition-at-all-four-year-state-colleges-for-qualifying-families ).

Did I say “free”? What I meant was that other people have to pay for it. The state sucks it out of people’s paychecks, that they worked for, in taxes. I mention it because many people don’t understand that the government has no money of its own. It only has what it can take from the people.

Another thing that a lot of people, including Gov. Cuomo, don’t understand is that value is closely tied to scarcity: the law of supply and demand.

What does he suppose a college degree will be worth, if literally everybody has one? And what happens when employers look at some 30-year-old recent grad’s degree in Comic Book Interpretation and say to him, gently but firmly, “Go away”?

I suppose it just might make some small amount of sense if, say, a state had a crying need for engineers, so it offered a financial incentive to students who earned a degree in engineering. But this is not what is being proposed. They are talking about degrees in bloody anything.

All this does is cram multitudes of young people into an already bloated and over-funded university system, where they provide the Democrat Party with an army of chumps available on short notice to protest whatever they are told to protest.

The only upside to this, in the long term, is that anybody in New York state with the foresight to become a plumber or an electrician will be able to write his own ticket in golden letters.
