New York City is an absolute disgrace.

The song about New York City goes, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.”

The question is, who really wants to “make it there” anymore?

A state and a city being run by irresponsible, liberal, socialist, fools, tends to encourage all of those with any brains to migrate elsewhere.

Besides all of the ill-conceived, liberal, social, educational and administrative policies…, New York City residents pay dearly for the privilege of living there.

New Yorkers, of course, start out by paying federal income tax, most in the 12% to 22% range, or an average of 17%.

Next, we go to the state income tax.  Most pay in the 6.2% to 6.5%, or an average of 6.35%.

Then we have New York City income tax, which only a few cities in America have.  The New York City income tax rate ranges from 3.1% to 3.9%, or an average of 3.5%.

So, that give us a combined average income tax rate of 26.85%.

Keep in mind that states like Texas and Florida have NO state or local income taxes!

So, we’re at 26.85% so far.

But let’s not forget property tax!

The property tax rate is 20.4%!  And even if you’re not a property owner, you are indirectly paying that rate through your rent for the property owner.

And last, but not least, we have the sales tax.

New York City has a sales tax of 8.875%!

Now that’s a lot of tax!

AND YET, NEW YORK STATE AND NEW YORK CITY ARE TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DEBT!

The actual debt for New York City is $91.56 billion!

New York State’s debt is close to $150 billion!

Unbelievable.

Like I SAID EARLIER…, A state and a city being run by irresponsible, liberal fools.

And now they (“they” meaning the New York State liberals, the New York City liberals, and the federal House and Senate democrats) want all of the rest of us to bail out these liberal cesspools via disguised money in the next coronavirus relief bill.

These democrat politicians just have no shame.

Anyway, so, what do the people of New York City get for all of that tax money?

They get a mayor, Bill de Blasio, who is a hot mess, and his administration which is one big hot mess as well.

The latest example of disgusting liberal behavior was exhibited by the New York City Health Commissioner, Dr. Oxiris Barbot.

And what a gem she is!

According to Fox News, via a story originally published in the New York Post, “The New York police sergeants union described city health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot as a ‘b—-‘ Wednesday in response to revelations that she told an NYPD official she didn’t give ‘two rats a$$es’ about cops getting safety masks.”

Oh, how wonderful!

This is coming from a person who was handpicked by Mayor de Blasio, to be the city’s health commissioner…, offering her advice and wisdom to the 8.4 million people who live in New York City.

She obviously represents the de Blasio administration’s feelings towards police officers, and the NYPD overall, quite well.

‘“Truth is this b—- has blood on her hands but why should anyone be surprised the NYPD has suffered under de Blasio since he became Mayor,’ the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) tweeted in response to The Post’s exclusive story revealing Barbot’s decision.”

“The health commissioner said in a mid-March phone conversation with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, ‘I don’t give two rats’ a$$es about your cops,’ in response to the mask request, sources said.”

‘“I need them for others,’ Barbot said.”

In other words, Cops are expendable and are dead last on her list of considerations.

“Instead of the 500,000 masks Monahan sought to help protect his force, Barbot said she could only cough up 50,000, according to sources.”

“Shortly after the SBA’s tweet, the union’s president, Edward Mullins, sent a statement calling for Barbot’s ouster.”

Your disdain for New York’s finest is obvious Dr. Barbot.

Your lack of knowledge pertaining to the coronavirus is quite obvious as well.

I wonder how quickly you’d be running to find one of these Neanderthal cops if you found yourself out on the streets in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn, or Downtown Brooklyn, or Ozone Park in Queens?

Your lack of any respect or consideration for your city’s police force is both sad and pathetic.

At least the rest of us can all take comfort in knowing you live in the city you deserve.

The treatment these New York Police Officers were forced to endure is absolutely sickening.

After watching the video of these poor officers being humiliated, as they were just doing their job, brings a few words to mind:

UNCIVILIZED,

ANIMALISTIC,

DISGRACEFUL,

NAUSEATING,

UNIMAGINABLE,

REPREHENSIBLE,

INEXCUSABLE,

… just for starters.

Are you getting the impression I feel these (I’m not even going to go as far as to call them “people”) animals should be euthanized?

Good…, then I’m getting my point across clearly.

If you haven’t seen the video, what we have here is two New York Police Department (NYPD) officers making an arrest of an individual in the area known as Harlem in New York City.

In the process of doing their job, they are continuously splashed with water by onlookers, until finally one sub-human actually dumps a whole bucket of water over the head of one of the officers.  The other officer gets water thrown at him with a bucket and then the bucket is thrown at the officer, striking him in the head.

I’m not sure where these officers found the self-control to seemingly ignore and just walk away from this situation…, but they are bigger men than me apparently.

I know these officers have some level of pride and honor, however, and you can’t expect these individuals to put up with this type of absolute humiliation and utter disrespect for long.

According to Thomas Tracey, Rocco Parascandola and John Annese of The New York Daily News, ‘“If these kids [the ones throwing the water, and I’m not sure I’d call them “kids’] were injured when they were being arrested, then (Internal Affairs) would have to be involved,’ an NYPD lieutenant said. ‘They probably weighed the risk and thought it was too much.’”

In other words, the cops don’t feel that the department or city hall has their backs.

‘“But my dad was a cop, and in my father’s day all of these guys would have been in the hospital,’ the lieutenant said. ‘The job’s got these cops scared to take action.’”

How long are people going to be willing to do this job?

Have these liberal politicians turned this into a job that just can’t be done?

How much money do you have to earn to warrant putting up with crap from both sides…, the criminals and the liberal politicians?

And don’t think there isn’t a racial aspect to this as well.

These African-Americans would not have dumped water over a Black officer’s head.

Again…, these African-Americans WOULD NOT have dumped water over a Black officer’s head.

If anyone out there disagrees with that statement, then please, I’d like to hear from you.  Please message me and convince otherwise.

It really hurts me to even use the word “American” in the same breath when referring to these missing links.

“America,” as we know it, is quickly becoming divided between the big cities and the rest of us.

When the rest of us see things like this incident, we just can’t believe our eyes.

We wonder “who are these ‘people,’” and where did they come from?

nypd 2

This type of disrespect towards officers of the law is just inconceivable to the rest of the country.

Liberals are quick to label these types of feelings as racist…, but they’re honestly not…, these are reactions to actions and behaviors…, not skin color.
