One thing I can celebrate this season is I do not live in NY City. (Or anywhere near St. Louis)(Or any other large, mufti-generational controlled Democratic city) With the protests escalating, I wondered how popular is their mayor? De Blasio beat Lhota 72.2% to 24%. Voter turnout set a new record low of only 24 percent of registered voters. After the recent murder of two officers, he has called for calm and a pause in the protests. And he is being mostly ignored. I wonder if that surprises him? He won a “landslide”. But with only one quarter of those registered to vote bothering to cast a ballot, he can’t claim any popular mandate. Another number, it appears only one third of New Yorkers register to vote. De Blasio won three quarters of one quarter of one third? Being generous with some rounding, I make that to be about seven cents out of a dollar he can claim as supporters?
I feel sorry for Mayor De Blasio. He is mayor of a city that does not like or respect him. He or his administration seem to have ordered a crackdown on tax evaders selling bootleg cigarets that resulted in a nationally witnessed, tragic death. He then castigated his own police force for their actions despite his involvement. Some free advice Mr. Mayor, more prayer from you and less talk. You are the part of the problem, not part of the solution guy. And the holiday’s are a big revenue producer for the city? How much is raked in due to New Years Eve celebrations? So you have a welcomed mob celebrating and possibly a violent mob protesting? Will alcohol be added?
I hope the mayor and all have a blessed Christmas, with love, joy and family. Sadly, I think this reflects how many now view Christmas.
