A statement like that is not optional. You can’t not accept it. You have to capitulate and embrace it when the new mayor of New York City claims he is not a free marketeer, rather he believes in the heavy hand of government. I’m not making this up.
From the New York Post.
Business leaders in the city are scratching their heads over recent remarks by Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.
Describing how he plans to govern once he takes office next year, the mayor-elect declared flatly that he doesn’t believe in the free-market system.
At least Comrade Bill was being honest.
“Everything you heard about me is true. . . I am not a free-marketeer. . . I believe in the heavy hand of government,” de Blasio stated matter-of-factly during an hour-long presentation to some of the city’s biggest real-estate developers.
Hah! Business leaders were scratching their heads? These socialists tell us who they are and what they want to do and people really don’t believe them? Hey, 73 percent of the voters asked for this guy, so they can have em. This tyrant is going to be handed billions of federal dollars to use as he pleases. This is the problem. There should be little or no federal funding handed out to the states. I don’t want to pay for their free shit. (Excuse my language.)
Maybe he’ll take over all the Best Buy stores in the city to ensure everyone gets their free flat-screen TVs and other various electronics.
