"If one sins against the laws of proportion and gives something too big to something too small to carry it -- too big sails to too small a ship, too big meals to too small a body, too big powers to too small a soul -- the result is bound to be complete upset. In an outburst of hubris the overfed body will rush into sickness, while the jack-in-office will rush into the unrighteousness that hubris always breeds..." -- Plato
It is, indeed, most unfortunate that New York State produces the worst-ever "leaders" in America, and seems intent on doing so with gusto.
Case in point, New York's "Governor", Kathy Hochul, who is to New York Politics what the Wicked Witch of the East was to the Wizard of Oz. One prays, nay one demands, that someone toss some water her way in the hopes that she will melt, melt and resolve herself into a dewy mess (to paraphrase Shakespeare) and flow into the nearest sewer from which she spawned.
I put the term "Governor" in quotes for two reasons. The first is that Hochul was never elected governor; she rode Andrew Cuomo's coattails (which is sort of like hitching your wagon to Bubonic Plague) to the office of Lieutenant Governor, and simply assumed his position (which was usually face-down with his ass in the air) when Cuomo turned out (unsurprisingly) to be a serial accoster of unwilling females.
If it wasn't for attempted rape, Andy could only get some by marrying Kennedys, who are all-too-familiar with (and tolerant of) actual rape.
The second reason is that New York is, for all intents and purposes, ungovernable, being ruled by a motley collection of bureaucracies that are emboldened (and empowered) to issue their own debt sans any sort of real controls, unions which only serve to jack the cost of everything in this state up by several hundred percent and stifle free-market competition for the benefit of mouth-breathers, and a system of graft so extensive and openly-practiced that one has visions of Mafiosi and Yakuza running rampant through the streets.
And although New York has the trappings of "representative democracy" in the form of a State Senate and Assembly, these bodies are little more than a holding cell for the worst examples of humanity; part lunatics asylum, part special education class, part criminal conspiracy. The people we choose to send to Washington (I'll get to a sharper definition of "we" in a moment) are a veritable Whos Who of The Shallow End of the Gene Pool.
August personages grace our Congressional delegation, such as it is, with the likes of Schumer (his picture is next to the definition of "Oleaginous" in the dictionary), Gillbrand (an original thought and cold drink of water might actually kill her), Grace Meng, Gregory Meeks, Hakim Jeffries, the rotund, porcine and demented Jerrold Nadler (the original model for the Weeble?), and the infamous AOC, a woman who is the perfect dipstick for measuring the depth of the surface and living proof as to why Gen Z should probably be marched to the ovens...right now...for our own good.
And who among us could ever, ever forget the distinguished gentleman that was
Further down the food chain, one finds unrepentant communists galore, beginning with the, thankfully, gone Bill DeBlasio (trying to run for Congress, no less!), the deer-in-the-headlights-Affirmative-Action hire that is Mayor Eric Adams, and the list gets scarier and less-distinguished as we run it down. Suffice it to say, New York City politics is an even bigger cesspool than what passes for it in Albany.
How we get this assortment of reprobates, malefactors, miscreants, villainous waste is easy to explain:
The combination of Welfare cases, unionized public sector idiots, and assorted riff-raff comes out to vote, in large numbers, for more of the same. The City of New York, itself, can outvote the rest of the state combined. The recent influx of hipsters and the "woke" refuse of the American Midwest (especially the upper plains states) who came here to be gay without hassle or to earn a living doing something no one actually needs done, only exacerbates the problem, as they work out their revenge fantasies against "the townies" of whatever three-outhouse-shithole they emerged from in Wisconsin, Minnesota or Iowa upon us.
The Native New Yorker, that is. A disappearing breed in a city now dominated by gentrified ghettos and coffee houses and "IPA bars" that go out of business every 6-8 weeks overflowing with a teeming froth of fucktard that follows every trend on Twitter, TikTok or Instagram religiously, and usually without critical thought.
Into this volatile mix, we toss the unpinned grenade that is Kathy Hochul.
Just in case you missed it the first time it was said by her predecessor, the Emmy-award-winning- Power Point Philanderer (and Granny Killer) waaaaay back in something like 2010, "Governor" Wanna-be reiterated it for you this past week:
Republicans are not welcome in New York.
We don't belong, you see. We're degenerate. We're a danger to law and order, society at large, and even good oral hygiene. This was just the latest reminder from a woman so shallow she'd be classified as "Intellectual Kiddie Pool" that some 5 million New Yorkers were so abominably evil and twisted that they should all go somewhere else (where they'd be appreciated!) than to stay in their own homes while she unleashes the forces of Hell against them in the quest to out-Stalin Stalin and out Guevara Guevara.
Because that's her job, as she sees it.
So, if the Emergency COVID powers she was granted -- and hasn't given up -- weren't enough to turn you off on this piece of shit, nor the favoritism shown towards the criminal class with her jail and bail reforms, and even if you didn't take the hint when she unloaded the entire Socialist panoply of tired-and-worn-out "ideas" on everything from minimum wages to "women's rights" to keeping schools closed to clamping down on e-cigarettes while the city allows pot smoking and provides addicts with "safe spaces" (with medical teams!) in which to shoot up, you should be in no doubt now as to what she's up to.
Which is essentially buying votes with other people's money, of course, and demonizing anyone who disagrees with her.
Because "our democracy", you see.
Except where does the money that this all floats on come from if 5 million New Yorkers take her up on her demand to skedaddle?
That would be 5 million people who actually work and who pay the taxes that keep the Ponzi Scheme that is New York in motion and allows her to refresh that Earl Schieb paint job she calls make-up every week.
Hochul is merely the latest pustule to arise on the body politic's ass since about 2008, or so. The democratic (small 'd' intentional) party had always been a collection of malcontents, losers and assorted thieves going back to at least the 1800's, but in 2008, a seminal event took place that has --= for better or worse, and it's mostly worse -- marked the party as the enemy of all that is decent in American Life.
That was the rise of Barack Obama, who whatever his true qualities may be (or might have been) elevated the vitriolic attack upon The Other into an art form. And helped greatly by a national GOP that continued to vomit forth the likes of McCain and Romney, men with no spines and whose greatest virtue was their ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory on a consistent basis, the system by which the democrats acquired and maintained power -- that is to say, by force, fraud and graft -- was well-and-truly baked into every policy and activity these knuckleheads have engaged in ever since.
The primary feature of this "new-and-improved" fucktard is the casual and continuous elevation of people you wouldn't follow through your own front door (with a pistol aimed at their backs, even, in case of sudden movement) to positions of authority and power that they are obviously unprepared for either by experience, ability, or temperament, and often all three, and solely for the reason of who they are and despite what they are.
The result has been a constant parade of douchebags who, in another time and place where sanity ruled, would have been left upon hillsides to die shortly after birth.
Something every democrat (small 'd' intentional) should agree with, seeing as how they disdain human life to begin with.
The new strategies seem to revolve around the following formula:
1. Present truly-stupid, destructive issue that somehow became "a crisis" overnight, despite no one knowing of their existence before publication in the New York Times the day before.
2. Insist upon the implementation of policies that essentially turn the suddenly-aggrieved into something like an endangered species requiring special protections and ultra-constitutional rights to be paid for by others (this is how "identity politics" works).
3. Identify everyone who disagrees with these new policies or who objects to the special privilege given to the newly-endangered species no one knew about until 5 minutes ago as an Enemy of the People (or, if you're Joe Biden -- I'll get to him soon) as an Enemy of the State.
4. Send the braindead into the streets to commit violence, intimidate the populace, and make decent, quiet, normal, peaceful, ordered life impossible.
5. Proclaim your own "specialness" ("first female governor of New York!") from the rooftops, as if having been born with a vag, or being gay, or being whatever color you like, or whatever hyphenated monstrosity you can conceive of, as something of an achievement and a badge of entitlement.
6. Blame someone else for the resulting, predictable, failures.
7. Get paid.
8. Repeat as often as necessary until you're a billionaire with a title that bears no resemblance to the activities you engage in, i.e. a "governor" who doesn't govern, but rather believes she is entitled to dictate.
The average person could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit out more-coherent sentences than this woman (although far be it from me to misgender anyone) could ever utter. The speechwriters and PR people are obviously overpaid.
Kathy Hochul is so committed to the "Green Agenda" that she conserves toilet paper by using both sides.
Our "governor" is a shining example of what happens to a child that doesn't get enough oxygen at birth.
When she isn't engaged in open graft (the new SOP of New York politics), she can be found flying the friendly skies at taxpayer expense.
When Hochul isn't busy mollycoddling criminals, she's busily chipping away at the morale, patience, and savings, of the innocent.
When Hochul isn't busy lecturing us all about "our values", she's busy ignoring the fact that Herr (Nazi reference intentional!) Side has none -- unless you call hatred for babies, affinity for criminals, promotion of welfare over productive work, destruction of economic systems for sheer fun, and abuse of power "values".
Kathy Hochul's latest ear exam proved that there IS light at the end of the tunnel. The science is settled, as they say.
She is little more than Andrew Cuomo with a ladydick, and half the frigid charm, who was dumped on third base by accident, but believes she's hit a triple. People this obviously dumb and delusional need to be shown the door, pronto.
When you vote this November New York, show this douche the door.
