Stop the bs, don't put words in mouth, first of all, I DO NOT or have EVER engaged in any political discussion with anyone on this board. You have no clue if I am right, left, front or center and whichever it is, IT IS MY RIGHT

OK, I'm downtown now. Once I fought through the crowds heading back to NJ on PATH, I got out on the street and saw lots of US flag-wavers, but more importantly, lots of young women and girls in their soccer uniforms who came into to see what their future dreams might look like. That alone is worth it.

Usually these types of parades feature men.

Although, I knew Gertrude Ederle, a resident of Queens and the first woman to swim the English Channel, in her old age. She had her ticker tape parade pics from 1926 on the wall in her room.

It doesn't get more obvious that it was political and it would absolutely be safe to assume you are on the Left.

Right, because without this parade, those soccer playing young girls would never have known about this.

i gave you an answer. (and actually it's 21% rounded which is 6 players.)


if this really bothers you, just underpay your taxes. case closed!

You yourself went political. Don't deny something that was just one page back.

And as I have already demonstrated your answer was poor and weak. 6 players is not the same as parades held for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers of that particular ethnic group the parade is held for.

And so I have to break the law just so deBlasio can throw a useless parade?

Why is the women's team 99% white? I think there needs to be more diversity.
