This tweet from governor Cuomo of NY:

is unintentionally hilarious for two reasons.

#1 You can’t make NYers obey the law, that’s illegal!

Cuomo is basically attacking Donald Trump for the supreme crime of forcing people in New York to obey the law as written and how does he say he’s going to stop him, by going to the courts and arguing that it’s against the law to make people obey the law.

This begs the obvious question. If Mr Cuomo believes it’s OK for people in NY to disobey and ignore the law if they don’t like it, does that mean that it’s ok for Donald Trump and the administration to disobey and ignore any court ruling against him on this issue?

#2  NY won’t demonize diversity, except for diversity of Opinion!

Was it not just three years ago the Governor Cuomo was stating emphatically that if you are pro-life or pro-gun you aren’t welcome in NY?

The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

As I wrote at the time:

Since we pro-life types are not welcome in NY anymore it might behoove us to use some kind of identification so that state officials can mark us undesirables if we enter or pass through the state. I understand the symbol to the right was quite popular not a very long time ago for that very purpose.juden

It’s also my understanding that people wearing such a mark were prevented from owning and or possessing firearms by the state, which was of course for their own good as such people could not be trusted with dangerous weapons, particularly people as extreme as they who opposed the sane and reasonable policies of the state that only wanted what was best for them.

Which leads to obvious question two  How will Governor Cuomo assure his friends on the left that his defense of those 42,000 will not include defending any pro-life or pro-2nd amendment positions.  Or does he automatically assume that all of these 42,000 have the same political, religious and 2nd amendment positions that he does?

Cuomo is a joke that New York has willingly played on itself.

Got a very good nights sleep, Stacy is still kinda Crashed on the couch but he was up later than me and thus managed to tell this story before I did:

“I work 75 hours a week at this place,” said the owner-operator of a convenience store on State Route 41 in Cortland County. “All I ever get are bills coming in, where they’re raising the taxes on this and raising the taxes on that.”

The silver-haired small business owner’s diatribe had begun when I put a copy of the Syracuse Post-Standard on the counter and he asked, “Reading about all our political prostitutes?”

His business was my favorite stop of the trip, he sold RootBeer Popsicle which I like in the same way Stacy likes coffee and cigs.

He also points out that the store was in fact in NY-24 so I stand corrected about passing through Mr. Hannah’s district.

He also updated his post with an interview with Ann Maire Buerkle

It's not generally known but Robert Stacy McCain weaves a multi colored cocoon and emerges from it daily to blog

So once he emerges from the cacoon we will be off and running.

They have lots of mobility:

New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is reportedly pitching a plan for an increased “millionaire’s tax” aimed at 75-85 thousand New Yorkers making $1 million or more a year.

And for those brokers who don’t move, consider this. The top earner types among brokers will demand pay raise to maintain their levels of income, their firms will achieve this by raising fees. The Result? This will turn into a tax on stockholders no matter where they live.
