#2 Ok New York dems, all together now:

(Sung to the melody of the original Sesame Street song are, “One of these things just doesn’t belon
g.”)

#3 “Let the plantation called New York City be the city of God, a city set upon the hill, a light shining in darkness,”.... “Elevate our valleys. Make low our mountains. Make our crooked places straight and our rough places smooth. Oh God, oh God, oh God, break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.”
~ Rev. Fred Lucas at the De Basio inauguration ceremony.

#6 More progressive ideas needed. HURRY !

During the 3½ years of WWII that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl
Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945.
The U.S. produced:
22 Aircraft Carriers
8 Battleships
48 Cruisers
349 Destroyers
420 Destroyer Escorts
203 Submarines
34 Million Tons of Merchant Ships
100,000 Fighter Aircraft
98,000 Bombers
24,000 Transport Aircraft
58,000 Training Aircraft
93,000 Tanks
257,000 Artillery Pieces
105,000 Mortars
3,000,000 Machine Guns
and 2,500,000 Military Trucks
We put 16.1 Million Men in uniform in the various Armed Services.
Invaded Africa
Invaded Sicily and Italy
Won the battle for the Atlantic
Planned and executed D-Day
Marched across the Pacific and Europe
Developed the Atomic Bomb
and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany

It’s worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, this current administration couldn't build a functioning website! Or I might add, make a decision on the Keystone pipeline.

#7 restore progressive ideals and end growing economic inequality in America's biggest city

#8 But in the New York Times, Andrew Rosenthal looks behind the Mayor’s claims:

Let’s not forget that tourists love the carriages and that locals make a living off them. And it’s worth noting that one of the big driving forces hiding behind the anti-cruelty front of the anti-carriage campaign are real estate developers. Is it possible they want to turn the stables in prime Manhattan locations into far more lucrative condos?

#9 for... any instance in which students citizens are required to evacuate the school building New York City, some typical rules and procedures may be no talking; walk in an orderly, single-file line; exit the building city; move to a designated place outside the building city and wait for further instructions.

Wouldn't be the first time that sort of thing has happened. All you gotta do is follow the money.

They've made a decision on the Keystone pipeline, but by pretending not to they don't have to take responsibility for it.

And the website may just be his way of burning the ships, like Cortez, so we can't go back to what we had before single payer. Now they have to implement some flavor or single payer, or _die_.

#16 Interesting, from Wikipedia: De Blasio's first job was part of the Urban Fellows Program for the New York City Department of Juvenile Justice in 1984. [14][15] In 1987, shortly after completing graduate school at Columbia University, de Blasio was hired to work as a political organizer by the Quixote Center in Maryland. In 1988, de Blasio traveled with the Quixote Center to Nicaragua for 10 days to help distribute food and medicine during the Nicaraguan Revolution. De Blasio was an ardent supporter of the ruling Sandinista government, which was at that time opposed by the Reagan administration.[15]

Elevate our valleys. Make low our mountains. Make our crooked places straight and our rough places smooth.


Sounds like a call to reduce everything to a featureless ball of mud.
