    That is probably true. It certainly would not surprise me to learn that of all the things that a society could possibly accomplish, that this is the best New York City was ever able to do.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    we rebuilt our city after the worst terrorist attack in American history.

    we have job growth while the rest of the state is stagnant.

    our population is growing, industry is thriving, tourists keep flooding in.

    people love us, and you know it.

    New York City kicks ass...and those who hate us are just jealous of how ****ing awesome & amazing we are. And when you add in the surrounding counties?...we are pretty damn amazing.

    But we can't wait to get rid of Bloomberg and his Bostonian-suburbanite authoritarian ways. He's been here too long and we want him out.
    And yet, he keeps getting reelected. Think he'd be as successful if he had stayed in Boston? I don't. I think New York City is one of very, very few places stupid enough to keep electing someone like him.

    he helped rebuild this city, after 9-11. He's a jerk, but he helped make our recovery possible. We owe him some gratitude for that. And the guy who ran against him last election didn't really want to win anyways.

    Could be. But I said nothing about a smoking ban. All I did was note the comparison of his own cigar to his own mention of offensive body odor.

    Oh yeah, what's not to love? The rats that are as big as house cats? The stacks of trash in the alley's and streets? Oh and the oh so forgiving of NYC auto drivers, that use their cars like an extension of their fists...? Now, don't get me wrong, I will say that NYC is a wonderful tourist attraction as long as you stay in the proper places, and don't stray, but let's not say that anyone is jealous of the rat race that is NYC, after living in the NE for 20 years, I am glad to be out of there.

    Am I expected to explain simple concepts and analogies to you that everyone else gets? I'm not your huckleberry, kid. Sorry.

    Oh my, I guess Japan, Germany and many other countries have nothing on NYC when it comes to 'rebuilding'.
