    Good night, New York

    De Blasio announces proposal to cut NYPD budget by $1B

    Weekly NYC Shootings Soar 127% Over Last Year, NYPD Data Shows

    I lived in NY 40 years, about 15 in NYC. It took a long time for the city to come back from the financial chaos begun in the Lindsay administration, to become "the nation's safest big city" under Rudy and Mayor Mike.

    I'm surprised, even as cynical as I am, at how quickly one very tall mayor can ruin it all. The subways are unsafe. The stairwells stink of urine. Crime is surging.

    And the worst is yet to come. A couple of my NY friends affirm my impression from afar.

    I wonder if De Blasio ever feels surprised at how the city is deteriorating. Probably not, or he wouldn't plan to suck a billion out of the PD.


    I'm not sure what the best economic policies in the world can do, if the Democratic governors of so many of our cities are doggedly transforming their towns into shit-holes.
    • “Weakness is refusing to take responsibility for your own actions, weakness is pointing your finger at someone else in a time of crisis." — Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, blaming Trump.
    • "We hold these truths to be self evident. All men and women created by the, you know, you know, the thing." —Joe Biden, explaining the Creator.
    • "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." —Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.
    • “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.
    • "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    It doesn't surprise me. The dems have been breeding barbarians in their cities for decades now and the time has come to turn them loose on the rest of the public. The police are a major part of the "thin veneer of civilization" and to scale them back is to invite destruction of all civilization. This will allow the dems/communists to remake the Republic in their own image.

    I have only ridden the Subway once- picture it 1987. A young Sicilian girl goes to New York to take her friend to the airport and see an even older friend who is a member of organized crime. While there, he asks to go to Macy's Herald Square. Given directions to the Subway he wandered up Greenwich Ave and entered the subway station. The clerk was non-verbal and rude when I asked a question about the price of the token and if I needed transfer. The he got to the revolving lobster trap which smelled a lot like urine. The train wasn't the mess I thought it would be and the ride was uneventful. OUtside Macy's are hustlers trying to sell the stuff they just shoplifted from Macy's.
