Mayor of New York City going crazy with the "Commie" crap !!

Some recent "interviews" with NYMagazine have him right up there with Grampaw Karl Marx !!

He had other interesting things to say as well.

So what's with all the popularity with "Socialism" and Communism" ?

Don't people know what's happened to countries that go full blown "C-ism" ?

He actually said he thinks people want no private property and want "corral zone" living quarters !

Bill de Blasio goes full Communist, argues against private property, says state should determine who lives where


In an interview published Monday at NY Mag, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio went full Communist, arguing against private property rights while saying the state should decide who gets to live in what buildings.

“In 2013, you ran on reducing income inequality. Where has it been hardest to make progress? Wages, housing, schools?” Chris Smith asked.

“What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property,” de Blasio said. “I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be.”

This dude must have hit the crack pipe too hard or something. This is insane speech from a supposed American. Not surprising though coming from a gubment lap dog. One set of rules for us and another for the elite. It's tough being a left leaning centrist because I have to be accused of supporting clowns like this every time I support anything considered "liberal".

Nothing communist about that.

He's talking about zoning laws. Which exist in almost every city.

Except places like Houston. And they're currently seeing the downside of that.

The context of the quote has nothing to do with zoning. He was asked about inequality. In other words, they can't arbitrarily force affordable housing and other leftist crap because of private property laws is his complaint.

Socialism sounds great when it's for other people, but once you have to abide by Socialistic practices yourself, its novelty wears off really, really quick.

That is the thing though. When you are a liberal elite, you don't have to abide by socialist practices yourself. The rules and restrictions are for the common man, not the elites. The problem with everyday progressives is they never realize they aren't part of the elite until it is too late.

Yes, NYC...ALWAYS with the best interest of the commoner at heart.

NYC hikes price of pack of cigarettes to $13, highest in US

Let's make everything affordable!

He doesn't know how to lead, let alone do it by example.

He's the Obama of NYC, or the Pelosi of SF, or the Emmanuel of Chicago, or the Trump of the White House...

Of course not!

He's one of the elite who are good enough and smart enough to sort out all of this for the rest of us who are too dumb to get it right for ourselves.

His reward is to have the best of everything and more of it.

It is when someone like de Blasio uses the term.

How is Obama's "affordable" health care working out for you? Unless you are poor, it ain't affordable.

Do zoning laws determine who gets to live in the property? How much the rents should be?

It works great for me and my mom. My mom has dwarfism and is very sick in a lot of ways.
Before the aca she couldn't afford the help she needed. Now with the aca she has that help
and is happier than I have seen her in years. Thanks obama.

And I am betting she receives a big subsidy for it. That's the only way it works.

Either you get government money to help you or you suddenly qualify for medicaid or you are going broke paying for what you literally cannot afford and cannot afford to use once you do pay for it from month to month.

That, of course, assumes that you live in an area of the country that still offers any Obamacare plans at all.

So don't smoke.
I hear it's bad for your health.
And seniors on Medicare might find this bad for your health thing to be "hip" or "cool" raising the costs of health care across the board for those that don't want to look as cool as the smokers.

Usually the "Leaders" of such idealisms don't.
