It’s the thought that counts.
Their hearts were in the right place.

I read an article about the "Thrive" debacle, and they said one of the main reasons nothing got accomplished was because deBlasio's wife, the "co-mayor" is a crazy person(sadbrains) and she was obsessed with eliminating "the stigma" that surrounds mental illness.

You see, because it's not the raving homeless lunatic bums shitting up the city that are the problem, it's the people who think hurtful thoughts about the raving homeless lunatic bums that are the true problem, and the wrongthink must be stopped.

So, instead of actually building looney bins and hiring kook wranglers, they just shoveled money at a bunch of PR shit that accomplished nothing. People still think raving homeless lunatic bums are scary and awful. Go figger.

Exactly. The people that are the problem aren't the problem.
It's the people that THINK the people that are the problem that really are the problem.

The whole calling the street urchins “homeless” thing society-wide, is a problem. A family who lost their home in a fire is homeless. A junkie streetshitter is not homeless, he’s living in the streets because he’s junkie streetshitter. Same goes for mental defectives; they aren’t “homeless”, they are incapable of staying in ANY home and need to be corralled and kept OFF the streets.

This deliberate misnomer “homeless” is where the trouble starts.

That and the thought that these people are just "down on their luck" and need a little stability to become functioning members of society.

Just like every other social issue. Finding root cause is hard and may reveal uncomfortable truths and/or hurt some people’s feelings. So just throw hundreds of millions into glorified PR campaigns. Or shovel hundreds of millions into failing schools (god forbid firing underperforming teachers though) while waging wars against charters that actually work.

And keep voting these assholes in time and time again.

Good idea. So if they can't just fire someone they can cut hours to
accomplish the same thing or raise prices. Either way the business
is not going to just absorb the labor cost increase.
And if push comes to shove, the business will just close up and everyone will find their new minimum wage is now zero.

The little mom and pop shops are least able to absorb the inflated labor costs too. The exact businesses that AOC and De Blasio say they want to protect, the local and independant places, those are the businesses that get crushed by this.

Dirty Sanchez's Fish Tacos has to pay a nitwit like AOC $15/hour to pour drinks, and they're done for. They'll be gone, and a McDonald's with a computer screen for a cashier will open up.

It's freeing and refreshing

Those touch screen McDonalds are everywhere in Manahattan now. Fortunately the screens suck their teeth and roll their eyes so everyone feels at home.

But doesn't take much to put you back in the red get a bad health inspection a few times and you are fucked.
And you just hit upon what’s going to happen to restaurants that cut staff or hours. They will get the health department sicced on them on a nightly basis. Christ from stuff I read, in a city like NY, they’re already essentially the mob of the restaurant business.

I love experiments especially an experiment that has failed already. The left seems to hate history as they want to keep repeating all the bad parts. Psst ask someone who is honest in Seattle how it is working out. They are just chock full of great ideas. Oh and we know how to “lose” 850 mil without a trace to show for it.

There's a reason the homeless population exploded when the country's mental institutions started being shuttered.

Pretty much all at the same time... the big one in Toronto most of the buildings got converted to dorms for the local college. Fun fact (not really) all the Police Academy movies were shot there...

Might as well call it "The Snake Plisken Tax".

As residents flee New York's high taxes, state uses intrusive audits to get cash from defectors

New York state goes to extraordinary lengths to catch wealthy residents who try to flee its burdensome taxes, leaving a gaping hole in the state’s treasury.

The aggressive approach by state tax collectors comes as the Empire State faces a $2.3 billion budget deficit that even Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo called “as serious as a heart attack.”

Cuomo, a vocal critic of President Trump, blamed congressional Republicans for passing tax reforms that reduced the state and local tax deduction Americans can take on their annual income tax forms -- meaning residents of high-tax blue states like New York have been feeling the pinch, sparking their exodus.

“This is the flip side. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich,” Cuomo said last month. “We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave.”

But New York state auditors are doing their best to ensure that those fleeing the state’s high taxes will face difficulties, including being subjected to an audit -- likely to be followed by a massive tax bill.

New York's success rate on audits can be attributed not only to the traditional methods of investigation like going through an individual’s credit card bills, but also to new high-tech tools that include tracking phone records, social media, and even veterinary and dentist records, according to the outlet.

“If you’re a high earner in New York and you move to Florida, your chances of a residency audit are 100 percent,” Barry Horowitz, a partner at the WithumSmith+Brown accounting firm, told CNBC. “New York has always been aggressive. But it’s getting worse.”

Ain’t the Cuomo family the best?

In other words you can never escape being fucked by us and we have the legal authority to do it. I would now ask the question why any business would set up shop in ny, now that this is known. Cuomo, the Dems and the stupid people who voted for this shit for decades deserve what they get. Fucking dummies really thought they were on the same side, nope grease up your arse
