    Default Gotta love New Yorkers.....

    Their mayor is a disgrace, and most of their government officials are way out of touch, but the citizens are in a class all by themselves.



    *Disclaimer* I saw another article on this that stated this might not have actually happened.

    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    Yeah that's a satire "news" site; similar to The Onion.

    Even if it didn't happen... the fact that it's so easily believable... that just says something sad about either the mayor, or us, or the citizens there... maybe all of the above... I dunno, it just makes me sad.

    I hope the story happened exactly the way it was portrayed. He's been king for way too long.

    Bloomberg does nothing about the inflated real estate problems, inflated taxes unemployment and minimum wage yet they can find the time to monitor our drink sizes and caloric intake.

    Can't move out of NY fast enough!

    Actually you won't miss it. I am leaving after my parents move on. New York State is where corruption was invented. Its such a beautiful state to look at but hell to live here.
    There are many better alternatives to new York. Run from it as fast as you can.

    I did a few years ago. Like I said, you'll miss it. Even other New Yorkers that I run into down here miss it too. A lot.

    In South Florida all I used to here from all the new yorker ex pats there I'd meet was how various things were not like they were in New York... We'd all shrug and say is you like it so much go back but they never would...

    Well except the snowbirds. We'd complain about them too but honestly if I could afford to do that I would too...

    Did studies on bloomberg's policies awhile ago, they are actually pretty decent and seams like a very intelligent person. As for the inflated real estate problems, anything really external would make the situation worse (property prices where I am are ridiculous too but such is life). The thing is if he set a rental ceiling, it risks taking property's of the "market", my lecturer used an old New York one, were it lost thousands of houses from being rented out and the prices were more expensive (unofficially) because people bought really crappy furniture inside the apartment for a lot more then its actual value to be allowed to rent the apartment out.
