Another 4 years of unregulated luxury condo building, eminent domain of established residents, sweetheart tax breaks for sports teams and big business and in general, huge wheelbarrows full of cash for the rich and a passionate desire for everyone else to pack up and move out of town. Culture be damned, NYC will once again reign Number 1 as the largest shopping mall/gated community in the nation.
Yes, because in a city of $8 million, the 8th richest man in america really speaks for the common man.
But what gets me is the NY Times' reader comments. The NY Rich treat him like a rock god, like the almighty savior of the wealthy. I have always liked the NY Times as a news source, but this makes me reconsider.
I'm surprised GW Bush hasnt thought of this ploy and declared November elections unnecessary. Afterall, it could explain why he is deploying a US Army brigade inside the US for the first time ever, and against US law (as it currently stands).
USA: Democracy starts and ENDS here.
