Wish his wife was hotter looking. She could at least provide some middle aged white guy black woman/lesbian fantasies.

He will try to ruin NYC - hopefully he won't get away with it.

The man's very confused - his real name is not DeBlasio; he pursued and married an outspoken lesbian; he spent time in the USSR and Nicaragua back in the day. And the uninformed voters will vote for him because, in reality, it's a vote against Bloomberg.

Yes, that's very important.

He has such untouchable uber-liberal credentials.

As for the prostitution, you don't need stop and frisk to arrest people for street prostitution. Ditto for street drug dealing. You use undercover cops for that. Also, the federal judge's ruling (which has been appealed) did not ban stop and frisk. The judge said the cops would have to have evidence the person committed a crime, was in the act of committing a crime or about to commit a crime. Examples breaking into something, running away from a crime scene, or about to do a crime like having a crowbar outside a window or apartment building.

But if you truly think things will get that bad, then you should probably bail out of town. There's no point in staying.
NYC is now a city only for the poor, rich, and unionized. Anyone else is done for if they want to live in a decent NYC area. 5 years ago it was affordable to get a studio in decent areas of Brooklyn/Queens, but that can't be done anymore (just look on hotpads.com or craigslist and this can be seen). If you like how the situation is here now, is it because you are rent-stabilized or enjoy living with roommates? Do you get generous union pay? So how's it fair that if someone is not poor, rich, or unionized, that they are just "not welcome"? It's now a land of entitlement (either by being rich, by being poor and receiving handouts and housing near the rich (so to serve them better. "Because we need our servants to be close to us right here in Manhattan, not doing those regular commutes that those regular people do"), or being unionized and receiving extra generous pay subsidized by the rest). What we need is a pro small business policy, and that won't happen with Blasio (he's anti-business, anti-landlord). Everyone I go, I see businesses being squeezed, or moving just a block away to save on rent, smaller food portions, raising prices however they can, it's genuinely sad how things have become because of the extreme liberal policy/taxation. Small businesses flourishing is what's needed, not the death grip of the liberal extreme taxation policy. NYC will become the poster-child for what happens when you have extreme liberal policy and at least other cities will be able to benefit from it. At least that's good.

Forget the stop and frisk policy, Blasio's pandering to only the poor and unionized will cause bad things to happen, because we're supposed to be for all Americans, not just the select few that are "entitled". The middle class are the ones that need to be looked out for. The poor already do well enough and 1000x better than the poor in other nations. What's needed is OPPORTUNITY for the poor to get jobs at thriving businesses, not handouts. Someone growing up in a poor home should be able to make good grades in school, thus get a scholarship to college, and get a job. That's already possible here in NYC. Handouts are a buffer... to keep things afloat, but they don't get to the root of the problem.

So who should be mayor? A moderate (Lhota) or a far-left liberal (Blasio)? Easy answer. Well it'll be fun seeing how all this plays out.

I'm taking my $530 a month (in taxes to the city/state) with me when I move in 3 months, because going the politically ultra-conservative or ultra-liberal way is extremely dangerous and that's about to happen people.

netryan, I agree. Manhattan is becoming a cesspool yet again. I pay $3300 for a one bedroom in a decent part of town and everytime I walk outside, I have to step over homeless people and deal with the project-dwellers who somehow get to live next door to me for nearly nothing. How is that fair? The middle class and upper middle class are going to slowly (or quickly) leave the city for greener pastures. I'm already planning my escape.

Isn't it crazy that none of this is conspiracy talk, all of it totally verified and admitted to? Somehow this man will still be elected. The rest of the nation must be laughing hysterical at us. We go from Napoleon Bloomberparte to Fidel deBlasio. Unreal.

In reality, deBlasio is not confused. He knows exactly what he is and has no qualms about it. NYC is about to elect the first openly communist politician in US history. Embarrassing.

Conspiracy talk?

Yes, he will be elected, unfortunately. And yes,it is embarrassing.

I still say he needs psychological help. The best is yet to come. hang on to your seatbelts.

I can't wait to join you. I get sick to my stomach every time I think about having to send my kids to NYC's "melting pot" schools. When my wife goes back to work maybe we'll be able to send them to private school so we can keep them away from the deBlasio voters' kids, but moving is becoming a much more appealing option.
