Will De Blasio Be Able To Redistribute NYC Snow?

From Reuters:

Threatening snowstorm may be early test for N.Y. Mayor de Blasio

By Edith Honan| January 2, 2014

NEW YORK (Reuters) – New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is coming into City Hall with a sweeping mandate to address the city’s most vexing problems, from economic inequality to police and community relations.

But first, he will have to manage a snowstorm.

A winter storm that is due to hit on Thursday, de Blasio’s second day in office, could pose the first challenge to the new mayor, as he tries to enact a progressive agenda while ensuring the city of more than 8 million people is well managed…

Wow. Imagine having do deal with such a pedestrian thing as a snow storm when you are out to change the world like Bill de Blasio is.

In 2010, Bloomberg came under fire for his handling of a blizzard that shut down some subway lines for days…

Bloomberg, who was first elected as a Republican [sic] but dropped his party affiliation, was criticized for letting snow pile up in Queens and allowing large parts of Brooklyn go unplowed for days in 2010…

This is laughable revisionism. Mayor Bloomberg was pilloried for his snow redistribution plan back in 2010. He was accused of putting too much effort into plowing the streets of Manhattan, while letting the snow build up in Brooklyn and Queens. Which lead to snow level inequality. And we can’t have that.

In reality, the problem was that some of the state labor unions were unhappy. And they held back on plowing all of the streets in protest ‘budget cuts.’ But Reuters never mentions that for some odd reason.

      Ah yes, the city of Fire and Ice.

      “the city’s most vexing problems, from income inequality….”

      Huh? Since when did income inequality become a “vexing problem”?

      I always thought that inequality was just part of life, a permanent condition of humankind, like pimples on teenagers.

      Anyway let’s look on the bright side –– after a few more years of Nerobama, Hillary, and de Blasio, we’ll all be poor.

      Isn’t that every Progressive’s ideal of equality –– shared sacrifice and shared poverty? (Except of course for the Ruling Class.)

      In the HBO series “Game of Thrones” there is a sadistic boy who tortures Theon Greyjoy.

      That boy has always reminded me of the perfect Progressive: dilettantish, pretentious, lazy, spiteful, malicious, predatory, vicious, parasitic, sneaky, a tendency toward sudden violence, destructive, and blaming all failures on others (Dorner Syndrome).

      I could go on piling up adjectives but you get the idea. Progressivism is the rebellion of the unfit against everything that is beautiful, healthy, wholesome, and successful in the world.

      Yes, that’s my Liberal.
