Like all things new and socialist, eventually they lose their luster and wind up being discarded. When Comrade William “Bill” Wilhelm deBlasio was elected mayor of the collectivist utopia known as New York City, we took bets on how long it would take to make the once great metropolis bankrupt. It’s hard to believe that just 3 years later the Comrade has exceeded our wildest expectations. A man of limited intellect, extremely poor judgment and an exaggerated sense of self-importance, the Comrade is now grasping to hold on to his political life. Seems that City Hall under his regime became an organized crime outpost where pay to play wasn’t just a philosophy, it was a religion. Now the US Attorney is circling his rotting carcass as well as the DA. A recent report about electoral corruption in the City, describes a web in which deBlasio was at the center. And it just shows the difference between a rat and a politician, there are somethings a rat just won’t do! Obama is attempting to bridge the diaper gap with generous subsidies to low income parents. Seems that being poor also means you kids will go without Pampers, isn’t it wonderful the things that government will do for people in need. Finally the lie has been put to social promotion, the practice of public schools promoting illiterates to higher grades to get rid of unwanted problems. The deal is that if your kid can’t read by the end of 3rd grade, he’s screwed. Florida of all places recognized this fact and outlawed the practice in most cases. Michigan is next on board. Can you imagine a world where all students learn to read and write at school?
