When the “new” New York commercials air and try to lure your business there I giggle.
New York has some of the most restrictive tax laws and regulations in the country. Almost nothing that happens in New York affects me so while I oppose things I generally figure, they voted for it. This weekend we were treated to one of the most overt statements ever uttered by a top tier Leftist dynastic politician. Mario Cuomo’s boisterous son is the Governor of New York. Andrew had some inner feelings to disperse last Friday on “The Capital Pressroom,” an Albany radio talk show. Here are his exact words:
“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
Now while the words echo statements trumpeted in Nazi Germany about the Jews, and were actually carried out, I am disturbed the most by the silence coming from the citizens of New York. We have a God given right to life as proclaimed in our founding documents and ideas. We also have the right to bear arms so in two of three cases this loud and angry slob rants against our own constitution. And yet New Yorkers, the self proclaimed outspoken ones stay silent, no better than the citizens of Germany as the SS stormtroopers cleared out the Jews who were not welcome in the state.
Updated: opposition beginning to mount.
