And what do you think the mayor's new proposal will do to the economy....and poor/working poor/lower middle class of New York city.
Mayor Bill de Blasio: NYC is going to ban 'glass and steel skyscrapers'

"We are going to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers which are incredibly inefficient,” he added. “If someone wants to build one of those things they can take a whole lot of steps to make it energy efficient, but we’re not going to allow what we’ve seen in the past.”

And people with urgent medical needs in Canada, come to the U.S. for treatment if they can afford it.

Liberals will screw the U.S. royally, if "we the people" allow them to.

Democrats have been fighting their "50 Years War" on poverty since the 1960s.

The success is: there's more people in poverty year-by-year 😎

See. You fail to see the plan. If everyone is poor then nobody is. It’s how you defeat poverty.


And pay no attention to the rich man behind the curtain working to make sure he stays where he is and you stay in the mud.


Any appearance of wealth he has is simply a side effect of the system.

Is socialism is so bad why are blue states so much richer than red states?

Because there is no socialism. It’s the capitalism that makes the blue states wealthy. The businessmen in the large cities. The employed in the large cities.

Leftwing progressive and socialism are oppressive, wealth -destroying mindsets.

Which is why the left is such a rapidly-shrinking minority.

It will only make the economy worse, hence making it worse for the poorer people and everyone else in general. But I do not expect anything less from the same state that is now allowing the murder of the unborn up to the due date, and is making even legal the murder of newborns.

Ask yourself where the real 1%ers live, and then ask yourself who those states are actually rich for. Pro-tip - it ain't the middle class.

The blue states are aggregates of wealth for the very people the left screams so loud about hating.

Are they actually rich or are they superficially wealthy but at the same time hiding a rotten core of massive debt that would wreck them in a heartbeat if it were actually tallied into the true accounting?

I think Ahabstar is being sarcastic, but I could be wrong.

And NYC is a cesspool. Not to mention the fact that "the demands from the left" about allowing illegal immigrants unabated into the U.S., and the policies democrats/liberals are imposing on the nation are also affecting states like Texas. Crimes continues to increase because of illegal immigration. Even despite the fact that a majority of Mexicans now see themselves as being "less secured" because of the increase in crimes from illegal immigration, the left in the U.S. keeps ignoring it, and claiming "you are racist if you dare be anti-Illegal immigration...

Progressive policies have not helped the people, nor the nation. They are only making things worse for everyone.


Conservatism is the key to solving all those problems right?

Well...all that money has to go somewhere. They are not going to just burn it. But they might take a few fistfuls and toss it into the crowd to cause chaos for an easier escape if need be. It is only money after all. Taxes will get it back into their hands soon enough. Raising taxes will get it there sooner.

All part of the plan.

Well you know how it is. They couldn't earn it through labor or effort, but they deserve it because they simply know they are better and smarter than all the rest of us and deserve to order the world in socialism and the chaser system of communism.

I'm sure we'll all realize how lucky we are when we're raiding the local zoo for meal of flamingo.

Larger population. More industry than farms. More urban thus developed than rural areas meaning more leisure, yet that time tends to be wasted. Also there are less true blue states, most of them flip regularly. There are some very solid red states that also happen to be financially stable. Like Texas and Alaska.

Lots of people like to say higher education, but Ohio has the most colleges, universities and other post secondary education institutions than any other state and has been that way for a long time. The urban areas of Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton have always been more blue Cincinnati and Toledo are the mixed bags that flip the state. But traditionally 80 of the 88 counties are always red. 5 are almost always blue. So really there are only 3 unpredictable counties and their population isn’t enough to sway a vote. What really makes it a swing state is Cincinnati which is Hamilton County. A very conservative town morally, but every mayor and council member are registered Democrats for voting purposes. But they do blow money on frivolous things like the street car.

Democrats really do love the poor...during elections. When the voting is done, not so much.

Its no coincidence that nearly every democrat stronghold city in this country is a cesspool. Democrats and their policies simply don't work in real life.

If your dog poops on the sidewalk and you don't pick it up you can get fined $350 dollars. But the person walking the dog can poop on the sidewalk and everyone just looks the other way. On the flip side you can get free syringes, which is nice. You can't use plastic straws, but plastic syringes - no problem.

That is why democrats want illegals here so badly. The people that have been here for a while are waking up and seeing the dems for what they are. They need a new batch of voters who haven't been disenchanted yet.

Remember when the left tried to say that the alternate 1985 from Back to the Future II was how America would look under Trump and how the producers of the show said that it was intended to be Trump when they designed it? I remember people being ignorant enough to believe it. But it's odd... If I take pictures of a fictional city that was made up to be the worst of the worst because of a greedy, rich, powerful, corrupt villain, it looks eerily similar to the cities our progressive democrats control. And what a coincidence that both take place in California. I've heard it said before, the democrats' lack of self awareness is unfounded.

For instance:

I think the biggest problem is the leftist wish to defy economics. I think they really believe that if they just had just a bit more control, they could completely rewrite the laws of economics as they are and everything would work the way they wish them to -- we really would have free stuff for all.

Unfortunately, math is math, and human nature is human nature, and neither cares two shakes about the laws or systems the left try to impose.


Exactly...

They never want to accept that money won't fix some problems... or that there isn't an unlimited amount of money to throw around.



Or that people need to be motivated by something other than "free everything."

Not only do you get fined if your dog poops on the sidewalk, but in some cases, they demand that you DNA test your dog so they have it on file. Then, if your dog poops on the sidewalk and no one sees it and you don't pick it up, they can test it, track you down, and fine you.

But it only works if the democrat leaders stay rich. That's a must.

The reason that Democrats want illegals (yes they are illegal) is the 2020 Census. Our Census is wrongly based on population not citizenship. The Democrats want the illegals in areas that they already control the vote in. That way apportionment would give them more power in Government. This is also why they want the Electoral College abolished.
