On July 1st, Canada will commence to mandate marijuana for official unadulterated legalization, ending the way overdue prohibition of the mighty weed. And here’s a fun fact that you have to be blazing high to believe it, but this is only the second nation in the world to come to their senses to make it legal for distribution, the other being Uruguay which legalized it 4 years ago.
Canada’s full on legalization doesn’t start until October so they can suss out the logistics to make it ready for law enforcement and businesses to naturalize the process. But being that every pot smoking citizen will no longer feel paranoid about lighting up in the nation, things are going to be fine like the kind. Also the fact that Canada will be first in line for data research from all fields regarding marijuana. But what they’ll mostly benefit from the weed is surely from medicinal uses, which is noted for fighting glaucoma and the deleterious effects from cancer and has recently been discovered as a deterrent to stave off effects of CTE disorder.
This means that whatever budgetary largesse Canada is going to lose with Stronghead Trump’s senseless tariffs to our neighbor above us, the Great White And Greener North will surely make up for it with the legitimate business sales and taxes that will be accrued from tons and tons of Mary Jane. While this country and the stubborn burnt out elected hacks in DC will continue to lag behind being swallowed by trillions of dollars in debt and with millions of people capable of working and paying taxes imprisoned because of this ass backwards century old prohibition of pot.
While in New York City, which is supposedly so fucking vibrant and diverse for disgusting craft beer and lousy expensive bourbon but not for smoking joints and blunts, Mayor de Blasio decided to order his NYPD to lay off tokers with a rather paltry and lame stab at decriminalizing possession and the public smoking of pot. Being that this was decided after it was found that the majority of arrests for Blacks and Hispanics were overly outnumbered by the amount of emergency complaints that were called in by people offended by the sweet sticky aromas of smoke exhalation.
It turns out that this half-measured wink-and-nudge command by the ethically bereft and defiantly hypocritical mayor makes a lot of exceptions for who gets a summons, which is a pain in the ass by itself because you still have to waste a day to go to court and who gets cuffed.
The department will issue criminal court summonses to people found smoking marijuana, the two sources said, unless the person:
- Has a misdemeanor or felony warrant
- Is on parole or probation
- Is categorized as a violent offender
- If police can’t verify their identity or their address
- If the person is in the driver’s seat of a car.
- If the office can offer a “legitimate law enforcement exception.”
So according to these six exceptions, the disparity stops will not cease. These arbitrary regulations are redundant being that if pot is decriminalized then it even should apply to these smokers too. With the exception of driving while stoned and lacking I.D., two of the rules are plainly openended (“the categorizing by and the purported legitimate law enforcement exception”), for Blacks and Hispanics will still be stopped for smoking weed because of these prevaricated suspicions of which will be enhanced thanks to the hazy presence of buddah in the air. It’s highly likely that citizens of the middle eastern and South Asian persuasions will be stopped too.
As White folks, especially those hip White folks, will continue to smoke weed with glorious impunity being that they are the number consumers of pot in this city and the lowest of the races charged. Which will give those fortunate sons and daughters with access to that pot speakeasy in Greenpoint* more reason to celebrate in their stoner crapulence and apathy.
Canada’s full on legalization doesn’t start until October so they can suss out the logistics to make it ready for law enforcement and businesses to naturalize the process. But being that every pot smoking citizen will no longer feel paranoid about lighting up in the nation, things are going to be fine like the kind when the autumn solstice comes around. Also the fact that Canada will be first in line for data research from all fields regarding marijuana.
As for what the city, particularly for those upholding and enforcing the law and Mayor Big Slow continuing to waffle, it’s going to get more expensive for everyone who are determined who shouldn’t be toking and to taxpayers who prefer not to get high with unnecessary police deployments, court hearings and of course jail time for a joint or a baggie. Another ramification will be the continuing rise of the usage and the market of K-2 for those who can’t afford the quality buds or the lack of availability of them from busted sellers because this state is still lollygagging on the issue. Even though 9 other states have already legalized it and Colorado has seen billions of revenue in the past few years since it’s legalization. The only shot to end this arcane prohibition is if Mario’s son Governor Cuomo will legalize weed when he needs another desperate shot to resuscitate his re-election campaign.
Come October, it will already be too late for New York and even this country. Canada has already got a massive jump with their decision. Besides, Toronto is basically a nicer version of Manhattan, the air is cleaner up there and the stars are more visible, which is way cool to see while high. And this grounds of the city will continue to deteriorate amiss the luxury tower pestilence blocking the sun and sky.
If New York doesn’t legalize soon, there might be a stoner and consumer dollar exodus heading for the Great White North.
So lay off smokers de Faustio and legalize it already Andrew, you fucking hosers!
*this is not a promotion or shout out to the club, I think to commensurate with and reparations for the amount of people who got arrested for possessing and selling on the streets in the last few years since possession was decriminalized, this club should be raided and it’s proprietors and customers should get the same justice meted to them as have those victimized already by this unfair system

A BMW went on fire on the corner of famed luxury department store Tiffany’s.
The Beemer’s hood had to be sawed off for the FDNY to extinguish the fire.
This incident occurred during rush hour just a few steps away from The Second Supreme Leader Of The World Donald John Trump’s flagship building, which made it quite surprising that the street was near accessible for passerby and lookie-loos, ugh, I mean eyewitnesses.
Something like a fancy $50,000 car smoldering less than 10 feet away from a high security area like the President’s ersatz billion dollar building would normally warrant a severe lock down. People working in buildings across from the expensive mini-inferno were still able to leave and commute instead of taking the precaution for ordering them to remain inside. But since it was a small fire and there were no news vans around at the time, the situation was quickly doused.
But considering the significance and the area, theories must be addressed. Like was this a terrorist attack. Was this a decoy for another terrorist attack (actually cross that one out, nothing in the news tonight covered anything that blew up, except the stressed out heart of the Trump Administration’s Economic Adviser). Some Deep State machination to provide a distraction or maybe fabricated terrorist attack by Trump’s Tower to manipulate the masses to support a war effort. Or maybe it was a botched bomb attempt to damage the pathetic and horrendous street art attempt on the wall of the legendary tony department store…
Hopefully, the professionals in televised and digital journalism will have more virtually legitimate and informative answers.
Deadbeat Mayor And Doofus Speaker, what a fucking city we got.
New York, N.Y.
Some unique, as in batshit, legislating is going and went down in City Hall along with the serious matter of making property taxes fair and equitable or whatever for the boroughs homeowners.
The first is Mayor de Blasio’s hubristic proposal/bland demand for City Council to write a bill to fund his bill of $300,000 to his law firm Kramer, Levin, et al. for defending his case that got dismissed after Preet Bharara got fired by Figurehead Donald John Trump and his lucky fat asshead skated by with just a pathetic admonishment by State A.G. Dancin’ Cy Vance for breaking the spirit of the law covering de Faustio’s not at all latent criminal activity using his mayoralty to dole favors and civic services for donor cash.
Let’s get this straight, this mayor, this idiot, wants city council to set up a legal defense fund just for him. And this is coming after he allocated 2.1 million dollars of public funding last year to take care of his hefty bills for his spiritual corruption. What Bad Bill is suggesting will set an atrocious precedent for future elected hacks like him to continue to circumvent campaign laws to influence voters and further nurture the powers of corporations that already have a stranglehold influence on policies and government.
Here is something de Faustio should consider instead of this crass request. He should sell his two houses in Park Slope. To go along with the money he clearly saved paying less taxes on them than citizens who live in less niche areas and pay more, he can surely get a cool 3-4 million for them being that they’re located in the over-rated over-marketed borough of Brooklyn™.
He could also get a part-time job, maybe work the morning shift at a Starbucks near Gracie Mansion, which should cover the time he leaves there to do his 2 borough 7 hour morning commute and workout. Or maybe, since he is basically panhandling already, go to the nearest 99 cent store and get a sharpie marker and some cardboard lying outside a dumpster then sit on a corner traffic light post on the weekend and solicit the profligate cash from sympathetic passerby. Suggestion: write that you need the cash to get on a bus going back to Boston.
So far, City Council has for the moment rebuffed this absurd beggary but with this predominantly fauxgressive bunch and their habitual sneaky methods for passing laws unbeknownst to their constituents, de Faustio just might get it. It all hinges on Speaker Corey Johnson, who was chosen by the Democrat Machine to be a supposed check and independent voice to monitor this mayor’s spending. But this Johnson seems to be more concerned with what doctors put on newborn infants birth certificates.
New Yorkers who do not identify as either male or female may soon have the option to change their birth certificate to a third category.
Under a proposal announced by City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and Mayor Bill de Blasio, adults will have the option to change their given gender to “X.” The proposal would also remove a rule requiring a letter from a medical or mental health professional to change the gender on a birth certificate.
“You don’t need a doctor to tell you who you are and you shouldn’t need a doctor to change your birth certificate to reflect your true self. This groundbreaking legislation will make New York birth certificates more inclusive for all and will send a powerful signal to the world that New York City government works for everyone,” Johnson said in a statement.
This may be the first recorded case of identity politics being used to deny each individuals identity. The stupidity of this law is beyond belief. When did birth certificates become a gay society cultural taboo?
So Corey, idiot, thinks that doctors shouldn’t determine what sex babies are? Will this mean that if the words “It’s a boy/girl” would be considered a slur and be subject to condemnation or a fine? How is X suppose to help? Especially being that the letter is used to mark the box of say, whether a baby is male or female.
There is absolutely no doubt that what people choose to be should not be oppressed, discriminated against or cast out of society, but this is ridiculous. And these are medical professionals determinations that’s being fucked with. You know, the same determinations that tell when a baby what term it’s in if women or teenage girls choose to get an abortion.
These two proposals are the types of bullshit that’s being discussed by our elected and appointed “representative leaders”. Who continue to waste taxpayer dollars and precious time as the city’s poorest and middle classes still don’t get the essential civic services they need and are due to them even still. Who are more concerned with avoiding their personal responsibility for their knowing unethical lapses and what’s between everyone’s legs and how it shouldn’t define them.
Hurricane Maria, a relentless, apocalyptic storm that engulfed and mostly demolished the U.S. commonwealth state Puerto Rico, killed 4,645 citizens in a Harvard report published in The New England Journal Of Medicine. Making this the deadliest hurricane in 100 years and the biggest amount of fatalities on a populace since 9/11/01.
This report comes almost a year after Figurehead Trump arrived to the island and marveled at the reported death toll of 16 casualties at the time and remarked that the devastation was not that bad at all compared to Hurricane Katrina’s mortality rates in New Orleans and then tossed beautiful absorbent paper towels in a room full of desperate, star-struck citizens.
This report comes as the government of Puerto Rico, run by the himbo Governor Ricardo Rosselló, closed off data requests to the public and researchers back in December 2017 and has been sitting on their asses awaiting for a commissioned study contracted to George Washington University to complete as the official death toll for the last year remained at 64, giving the impression that maybe they do have the updated amount and they whited out the first and fourth digits. Governor Rossello is on the case though, as he expressed by conveying superficial rage in an interview on CNN.
Figurehead Trump, along with his accomplice and Vice President Mike Pence, did not utter one letter or bat an eye when they showed up at a FEMA meeting about the devastating Harvard study, which on the bright side at least they did not attempt to refute it. On the predictable side, they were nauseatingly crass and soulless, showing seething contempt of not only bringing up the fact of the tragedy but of the people they don’t think they represent and are responsible for their security. As is expected of those two bastards.
Pero el mayor bastardo es Governor Ricko Suave, whose duplicity is way out of bounds in the obvious delay and cloaking of the true mortality totals which cover the day the hurricane hit and her societal and environmental impact, mostly derived from the months long blackout of the commonwealth’s electrical grid and the total lack of potable water.
But the charming governor has more pressing necessities and niceties to concern himself with. Like repressing his constituents desire and civil right to protest his and the un-elected fiscal boards austerity measures by deploying 3 times the amount of cops for every citizen and also equipping his personal taxpayer funded stormtroopers with the best armor and gas cans to thwart such attempts against social activism and justice. And also on making sure to not ward off any venture capital interests to the island state with such gloomy stats so young wealthy pioneers with bitcoins can arrive unimpeded and remake/remodel Puerto Rico into a resort utopia these soulless asshole big spenders for partying all year round. And why the hell not turn the commonwealth into a spanking new tax dodging haven for current and future miserly oligarchs to hoard their massive wealth.
Think this is some dystopian fiction, think again. What Governor Suave’ along with his hack Democrat allies in America are enabling is The Shock Doctrine on steroids and plutonium, as villages and towns throughout Puerto Rico are still undergoing months without or intermittent amount of electricity as the cities are doing just fine and have experienced a revitalization as hundreds of thousands of citizens are still struggling while their government fiddles and finds myriad ways, from incompetence to indifference, to deny the suffering masses their rights to their livelihoods and general and civic services.
And also their right to find out if a relative or friend has died from the ramifications of Maria 2017. But Governor Suave’ thinks he can get by on his Menudo-member boyish good looks and elite friends and acquaintances in business, high finance, and the Democrat Machine. It’s easy to see why he needs to hide behind armored police.
Governor Suave’ only has to worry about the next hurricane that will hit his state. But the way things are surfacing now that the death toll has been professionally tabulated and exposed, the next storm’s name might just be Revolution.
The justice system has decided to release the lower Manhattan notorious affordable rent paying tenant terrorizer and convicted felon Steve Croman after serving a piddling 8 months of an incredibly short 1 year jail sentence for his crimes of grand larceny and tax fraud. Crimes that he got caught doing instead of the various crimes that were virtually unacknowledged and just as detrimental to society and communities; blatantly violating their rights as paying tenants ranging from sending goons to break into their apartments, denying basic services like heat and water, making baseless litigious threats and fostering hazardous toxic environments with gut renovations in a combined effort to force tenants to move to make way for stupid frivolous spending transient clients looking to spend 3 times as much to rent.
The kicker to this wretched display of justice is that they sprung him early so he wouldn’t be swarmed by reporters. Shit, how did they think he got away with tormenting his tenants all these years, certainly not by intrepid, consistent, persistent journalism (Besides, reporters are too busy covering sunsets touching buildings and the throngs of dumbasses obstructing traffic) and definitely not by the non-existent civic duties by the electeds and those appointed in the DOB as Croman’s heinous tactics has spawned dozens of imitators that are still being administered and still going unchecked. It should be noted that Figurehead Trump’s young ward, Jared Kushner, pulled off the same rent fabrication to get massive loans for his nearby East Village, Astoria and Downtown Brooklyn properties, but he’s still an adviser to the President and got back his security clearances.
It looks like this foul hedonistic, avaricious sociopath got the same deal Alex got in A Clockwork Orange, sans the film viewing torture. And now with a corrupt mayor still obeisant to mega-developers and dependent on manifesting his bogus and deceptive affordable housing program, Croman and his putrid peers (and there are perpetually over a 100) will be emboldened to continue his (their) mendacity, which did not even stop while he was stewing in the tombs and major banks continue to prop up these predatory ventures and practices with massive loans.
In other related landlord scumbaggery, tenants returned to their apartment building in Mount Hope in the Bronx that got torched in a 5 alarm fire back in September to find the building still charred with soot and still reeking of smoke. The stench and environment was apparently too much for the rats that infested the building as the tenants are having understandable difficulty to adjust because their homes are rent-stabilized and being homeless is arguably more hazardous.
The building has over 100 open violations and their landlord has not been nor his identity revealed in the highlighted underlined newslink.

Come on and take a free ride
After debuting last summer, the NYC Ferry has received from Mayor de Blasio and Your City Of New York another $300 million dollars of funding. The justification for this allocation comes after thousands wound up waiting hours to board the insufficient service that was caused by the paltry amount of boats rushed into service provided by the Frisco based Hornblower broke down simultaneously, and on a crystal ball like five year speculation of the service amassing 9 million riders.
This was immediately decided after weeks of heavily publicized demand by the Riders Alliance group for $210 million dollars towards discounted fares for low-salaried transit dependent citizens, which de Blasio said was impossible to fund and refused to implement the program into the $89,000,000(!!!) city budget and conveniently basing it on the state budget mandate for the city to fund half the $800 million emergency fund improvements and repairs for the MTA, the worst fucking transit system of the universe.
A question for the seemingly socialist and progress mayor is how come there isn’t money to give the less fortunate commuting citizens a hand? The answers are quite obvious and expansive but this post will focus on it’s arguably most popular destination dock in Rockaway Beach.
There are the shuttle buses which provide free transfers which are not available to those who need to take a city bus and train after they get off the boat. Although in the beginning of the summer in Rockaway just after the service was launched, these shuttles weren’t provided by Hornblower but were provided by massive, luxurious charter buses. It was a month later that the official buses by the Hornblower Corp came in. The costs of renting these charter buses are not known and of course were not covered in the local news media whom initially showed up en masse to the christening of the ferry service and never returned.
The massively fucked up thing about this, yet another, insulting slight and deprivation of city services for the citizens struggling to afford to live in this city is that the ferry bus shuttles are an everyday free transfer for ferry riders, where it’s bus service only went to limited stops going east (which has seen a modest influx of the hipster demographic along with the opening of an arbitrary beer garden) and ended at 67th street, avoiding a massive stretch east which contains most of the population in the peninsula where the majority of poor people live and a great amount of public housing.
Even though the shuttle has recently been extended further east to the 30’s on the peninsula (certainly because of new housing developments from lux towers to the only upgrades that was devoted to NYCHA buildings in the past 4 years), it was recently revealed that running the ferries cost twice the amount of the fare to subsidize it’s operations. It would be nice to know how much of that subsidy covers the bars and bartenders inside the cramped water trolleys.
But there is another eye-opening reason why a ton of cash is being thrown at this sinking investment and it was pointed out in the local shiny happy funtime beach weekly, The Rockaway Times. After the aforementioned simultaneous breakdown of the fleet last autumn and unfortunate incidents leading to commuters getting stuck and evacuated because of bad navigation, winter came along with a record daily frozen temperatures that manifested a new obstacle-ice.
In the peak of winter, the ferry service was introduced to another obstacle as Jamaica Bay started to freeze over, but NYC Ferry did what it could to meet the challenge. On days where conditions seemed impossible, the service was suspended for everyone’s safety, but many attempts were also made by tugboats that were hired to clear the ice so that the service could continue on some chilly winter days.
So NYC taxpayers are paying for two boat services, hopefully the tugboats are not equipped with bars for craft beer and artisan whisky sales.
It is just stupid that de Faustio would prefer to piss 300 million in the river than provide a real progressive program like fair fares for the working poor and senior citizens which would have save the city 90 million, with the remainder of the cash going to improve bus service, maintain road infrastructure and street safety by sending more cops to direct traffic in the busiest areas where congestion is the worse.
But just like the BQX gentrification street car de Faustio and the new agents of the city- the Friends of the BQX and Transportation Alternatives, insistently refuse to let go, as this new expensive allocation is based on projected ridership in 5 years time, showing once again that the mayor and his owners/donors in Real Estate care more and pander to a constituency that doesn’t exist instead of the constituency that is getting shafted from this fauxgressive mayor, depriving them of necessary transit services for these quasi-yachts and the unfair free bus transit service for mostly tourists and transients when those ghetto dollar vans would do just fine.
The 300 million allocation is also going to upgrades at all dock stations and the building of new ones like in Stonybrook in the South Bronx, another locale that’s is in midst of a luxury hyperdevelopment building boom (more like boon since this will induce gentrification and high rental market rate fabrication/speculation) to go along with the free transfer bus trips as the majority of train stations and subway tracks and signals will see elongated delays in renovations. Which makes this effort to prop up an expensive and equally ineffective transit service unfair to all commuters.
Let’s get it on.
The boundaries of the law
You seem to miss the point
Arresting for a joint?
Well, looks like the Mayor finally got a modicum of sense or is just trying to upstage his confirmed rival Gov. Cuomo in a battle of superficial progressive activism, now that he has ordered the NYPD to stop arresting people for smoking pot in public weeks after he announced his experiment to provide safe spaces for shooting and possibly selling smack as the NYS health dept. finally completed it’s study for the inevitable legalization of the glorious weed.
Although this decree still comes with a favorable sop to the NYPD to keep up shakedowns in certain predominantly Black and Hispanic communities or areas under and prospective gentrification with supposed “carve-out” arrests to catch potsmokers who are suspected of breaking probations, having warrants against them or are currently on parole. Which just seems to be an redefined and upgraded version of the unconstitutional tactic of “stop and frisk”
Although this is a genuine sign of progress that will truly benefit the city with new businesses, new jobs and massive revenue and will be less stress for pot smoking citizens and cops equally, the city and it’s law enforcers still have to maintain some control and policy management over more serious and harder drugs and it’s consumers.
In six parks in the Bronx, the city has installed syringe deposit boxes for the junkies frequenting them for shooting up after finding up to 5,000 used needles discarded by on the lawns, lots, paths, benches and playgrounds.
Although this seems like a good idea it’s extremely naive. Junkies not only don’t have the energy to get up or muster the consideration to clean up their works after they shoot up and wallow in their blissful state, but like most drug users are way too paranoid to be seen disposing their needles in receptacles. And it will not lessen parkgoers anxiety to see the sight of junkies disposing their shit properly as when they see the needles just lying around. It’s better for NYC parks to hire sweepers. Meanwhile, a parking lot slated for more community disrupting gentrification tower development near one of the parks that has received needle waste baskets and kiosks has become a junkie haven.
Then there are other dangerous products hitting the streets because of demand and old school favorites too, like in Mount Hope in the Bronx three men were busted selling packets of the elephant tranquilizer Carfentanil for distribution to compete with the fentanyl heroin market and in Washington Square Park, just days after the mayor’s ruling people are smoking crack in full view in front of park goers.
And most disturbingly and distressing in Bed-Stuy,
up to 25 30 87 people were found walking in a coma-like daze and lying on the concrete after overdosing on the synthetic garbage low end marijuana substitute K-2, nearby the same bodega that was caught selling the stuff back in 2016 when 33 people were zombie marching and lounging on the pavement on Broadway and Myrtle Ave . It is suspected by a councilman Robert Cornergy that it is being sold on the street by runners/hoppers, whose suspicion was confirmed when cops busted 8 people 15 people for selling it in baggies labeled “scooby snax” (zoiks!). Another 3 catatonic fake pot smokers were found lying the streets of Crown Heights.
The fucked up thing about K-2 and it’s popularity is that even if pot becomes legal, this shitty toxic product will not go away for it will be the only thing poor drug users can afford if you factor what the prices will be when pot shops open up when those aforementioned area will be fully gentrified.
There is also the unaddressed and inevitable high profile return of cocaine, which will not be a shock since it’s the preferred upscale drug of choice of frivolous big spending young adults, of whom this city is building it’s economy on with all the high rise tower pestilence and proliferation of bars and clubs in Manhattan and the coastal towns and suddenly niche slightly eastern areas of Brooklyn and Queens. As NYC’s department of health is taking preemptive action with a campaign focusing on cocaine laced with fentanyl and sending aides to bars on the high end and notorious Hells Gate on the Lower East Side to warn patrons to be careful when they illegally buy and snort blow on drink coasters.
Unfortunately this concern may have already hit a snag because at a “restaurant” and bar called No Fun, name and album font stolen from The Stooges in the East Village, a woman died in a bar/restaurant at 9 p.m. after coming in loaded on coke and booze. (Night Mayor Ariel Palitz, where are you??)

Former N.Y. State Assemblyman, Albany House Speaker and representative of the Lower East Side of Manhattan Sheldon Silver is still convicted!
Sheldon Silver is still convicted after being found guilty two weeks ago for his reprehensible and corrupt misuse and abuse of an elected political position to enrich himself with 4 million dollars worth of referral fee kickbacks through steering taxpayer funding through close friends in real estate firms from his district and a doctor pal he hooked up to his favored crony law firms.
Sheldon Silver went from his initial 12 year sentence which was generously dropped last year in an appeal citing the U.S. Supreme Court’s McDonnell Decision that made political bribery legal to the gloriously deserving 130 year sentence that was dropped on the career establishment Democrat hack.
Sensing the potential debilitating effects, permanent shame and confirmed disgrace of being incarcerated, Shelly Shady now has mustered the audacity in appealing for the third time for an acquittal. Showing yet again his insatiable proclivity to waste taxpayer dollars after getting caught plundering it, for more hearings to avoid his fate of the end of his existence in a federal prison cell. And it doesn’t at all help that he is not going to be officially sentenced until the last day of September, giving him and his dutiful attorneys ample time to conjure some obscure precedence to get him off.
It ceases to amaze the determination of this prick, who has shown more effort and tenacity scheming and machinating for himself and his buddies and now refusing to accept the verdict for his confirmed crimes, avoiding accountability and mocking justice and his former constituency in the wretched process.
But at least he’s still convicted and still a pathetic cowardly worm.

Chirlane McCray. Getting the fuck outta dodge, shunning accountability and the press inquiries. (CBSNY)
Chirlie, you can’t be serious?
Chirlane McCray puts out a release on actual Mayor Of The City Of New York letterhead for a press conference to encourage women’s empowerment about a taxpayer funded website to support women looking to start businesses and then splits from the scene while the women she claims to support stand there and the press gaggle who she promised to address watch her walk away.
Is this anyway for someone of such stature like a First Lady to act? Especially after a year of her husband’s first term, the First Lady has become a de facto government position and she has actually made big official moves like forming another pay-to-play slush fund “non-profit” in City Hall called the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York featuring some of the city’s elite business people on it’s board (one of which is now indicted) and being responsible for the obscenely expensive and apparently useless THRIVE mental health program.
And is this anyway for a person not elected to serve to act considering that she has ingratiated herself in her husband’s duties by picking people to fill positions in his administration and possibly has shaped city policies or arranged meetings with special interest groups. And is meta-obviously using her husbands mayoralty as a springboard for her own career in politics and elected office like some dummy who lost the presidency to Donald Trump.
Apparently, it is and Chirlie doesn’t give a damn. As Marcia Kramer, and only Marcia Kramer in that crowded Blue Room of disrespected journalists, was willing to get in her face about this latest affront to government accountability from de Faustio’s administration.
If you look at the Co-Mayor in the beginning, she is nervously shifting her glances towards the crowd, as if she knows she’s about to get some questions she wouldn’t like. Or probably saw Ms. Kramer and was already set to jet the room, as the subject of de Faustio’s insouciant remark about “hyper complaint dynamics” coming from not so empowered female city worker victims with sexual harassment complaints of their male supervisors and co-workers, would kill the identity politic inspirational party vibe going on. Or maybe about the error-laden hot line to report sex trafficking of young women that she announced last month. Or how the tech douches hired by City Hall will screw this lady website up like every other specialized program purporting to help the vulnerable in this city.
And as Ms. Kramer also observed and got to ask the insecure First Lady coming out of the building, being that the event she arranged for women empowerment, would she publicly endorse and empower Cynthia Nixon for her run for governor. Well, Chirlane stuck to her script (and not the city’s as she promised) using her pussy power (not the feminist irony but the coward term) and blew off the question and fled to her tax-payer funded town car with her entourage. The funny thing is that by blowing off that question will only serve to benefit Ms. Nixon and her terrible campaign, being that she’s already far behind and most of the citizens of New York despise de Faustio and surely Chirlane, which will fuck up Cynthia’s run with their toxic endorsement as if the hot rumors being that they are behind her gubernatorial bid in the first place.
But to pull off a stunt like this is beyond crass and arrogant, character traits that Chirlane and her husband profoundly display every time they tout a program and in recent appearances together or individually. Which now add to the brazen criminal incompetence and willful obliviousness that’s in the ether around Park Row and all it’s official departments. It’s now apparent that taking the press for a ride is now city policy along with the gaslighting and narrative controlling from the mayor and first lady other mayor.
The press really needs to get their asses lit on fire and be more aggressive (Hell, they could have grilled Glen right there when she took the mike and asked her why isn’t there sufficient or even any affordable or supportive housing and how come the towers recently built to accommodate the affordable housing program are already showing debilitating conditions, or if her acquaintance Ron Moelis has sent her a basket of wines and cheeses for her sterling hookups for the alleged affordable housing developments). Because Chirlane Wilhelm and her husband are going to continue to walk away, leaving their constituents, mostly the ones with XX chromosomes, and Your City hanging and in the lurch again and again as they have done in the last 5 years of fauxgressive neoliberal policies that don’t do shit for the people but benefit the radical chic crowd.
Ms. Kramer can’t do it alone or forever, despite her dedication she’s getting too old for this shit and it’s a pathetic sign that she was the only outside waiting for the self-exalted First Lady. There has to be younger bashers out there (as well as a breakup of corporate influence on network news and more independent news shows) so a Chirlane McCray mayoralty or even governorship in N.Y. can be dutifully and mercifully prevented.
Hey! Hey! Kids! It’s State Senator Simcha Felder and Herschel Krustofsky aka Krusty The Clown!
Being a special swing vote in Albany, State Senator Simcha Felder has pulled quite a tax allocation hauling from this year’s big ugly ass budget from Mario’s son. For the budget to be passed on time and being a special swing vote in Albany in an gubernatorial election year for the desperately pandering Andy Cuomo and through gladhanding caucusing with Senate Republicans, Sen. Felder, a Democrat, got a huge chunk from the education funding from the state for 1.2 million dollars with a massive part of that chunk towards the social services group, the Agudath Israel organization he has ties in for yeshiva schools in his district of South Brooklyn.
The thing about this on it’s face selective allocation from the state is not only the fact that these are private religious schools, but these schools, particularly the boy yeshivas don’t teach the fundamental subjects of English, Science, Mathematics and History. Despite these horrendous omissions from the curriculum of these schools, Sen. Felder demanded of his elected colleagues to exempt these schools from these required subjects and held up the state budget if he didn’t get his way despite state provisions for all schools to provide students of them.
A NY Post article revealed the debilitating consequences for students of male yeshiva schools and it is absolutely not kosher. Like the Catholic Schools usage of the classic novel “The Bible”, the Yeshiva’s Torah also debunks similar scientific facts like dinosaurs (don’t know if the Torah similarly subscribes to some Bible beliefs that humans co-existed with dinosaurs like in the Flintstones or even in the presence of Sleestaks) . The bulk of the students education hours are devoted to the sacred Torah while lessons about the history of American Slavery, the Alphabet and even the naming of our nation’s states and higher value numbers are cast out at the expense of the students developmental learning skills. All this sanctioned ignorance has led the majority of these students to struggle in adulthood resulting in a majority of “graduates” reliant on welfare programs. Senator Felder’s political gamesmanship for government lucre for his glorified frats will only continue the terminal under-educated stasis of the Yeshiva’s students at their expense. Which some former students wind up paying for to catch up on the basic fundamentals of learning they missed during their early childhood and adolescent years.
Which brings this to the allegoric comparison of one of the greatest icons of television history, The Simpsons children’s t.v. star Krusty The Clown who in Season 1 in an episode where he got framed for the Kwik-E-Mart holdup by his delightfully evil and psychotic sidekick Sideshow Bob when he was exposed to be illiterate during his court hearing and in a Season 2 episode where Krusty reunites with his estranged father after he shunned him for pursuing a career in comedy that flashbacks to Krusty’s youth growing up and attending rabbinical school. It was always a wonder how a successful animated world children’s icon could have such a debilitating condition and now I can see why, for Krusty is a just another product and victim of an expensive debilitating school program.
Unfortunately for the boys going to the Simcha’s Yeshivas, they have as much a chance at becoming a rabbi for the odds are about the same as making it as a B-list actor today and absolutely no chance at becoming a successful animated character and are stuck with limited skills and reading comprehension when they are done at these education boondoggles and have to spend even more money to relearn everything all over again just to figure out how to multiply and recite the alphabet forward.
All for this hack senator’s political patronage bullshit, his undeserved status and pernicious influence in the legislature and the district he deems and feigns to help and represent.

First things first now that this unfortunate series of traumatizing events in the five boroughs has reached a small milestone…
Mayor Bill de Blasio (the mayor of your city for readers from N.Y.C.) has decided to implement a plan for heroin addicts to shoot up their works in specialized facilities. This idea, that was featured in season 3 of “The Wire“, is an attempt to tamp down on overdose deaths and discourage junkies from shooting up on the streets and parks and in the privacy of their homes or in abandoned ones. It’s a response to thousand of O.D. deaths that outnumbered the total amounts of fatalities from murders and vehicular accidents even though this statistic wasn’t counted for the rosy celebratory announcement of (alleged) record breaking low crime stats last year by the mayor and the NYPD considering the federal illegality of the drug, the industry where it emanates from and the widespread crime that it fosters, like the desperate lengths addicts will do to get their fix like muggings and petty theft to murders ordered by drug lords and assaults and killings resulting from gangs fighting over territory for sales. Sites being considered are Gowanus in Brooklyn, Longwood in the Bronx, Washington Heights and Midtown West in Manhattan.
There is no doubt that the opioid epidemic has to be curbed and lives need to be saved, but the city can’t implement this without decriminalizing/legalizing the consumption, possession and selling of marijuana. It’s unjustly absurd that the city is going to allow heroin addicts special places to shoot up while there are still people being arrested for smoking and selling pot. Especially since the NYPD is still selectively targeting Blacks and Hispanics based on dubious phone call complaints about smoking outside, while wealthy hipsters are running a faux speakeasy selling weed and combining it with hard liquor for sale to wealthy majority White hipsters who buy and consume it in a house in Greenpoint with total impunity. (But don’t worry about them, because they are making drug abuse “elegant”).
This program is implemented in other countries around the world and is currently being considered in Seattle, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. But as is wont of Mayor de Blasio, and his delusion as a progressive superstar leader and his proclivity to spend lavishly, he’s going to jump the gun and be the first to start it this high risk program, and now he has the approval of Commissioner O’Neal despite observing that drug abuse and dealing was occurring off the facilities in two provinces in Canada.
And going by the fauxgressive mayor’s management of other crucial safety net programs like public housing and child services, he will probably fuck this one up too, piss a ton of money and human resources on it and will blatantly ignore any negative ramifications that will result when the sites officially open and have his aides cover up any incidents or hassles from the addicts and the pushers that will be loitering around these sites for a safe practically legal place to sell their product. While pot smokers have to continue to still worry about being caught, cuffed and imprisoned.
As long as pot remains illegal and in the same class of drug as heroin, these junkie wellness centers are full of shit and unfair. And shows that these so-called liberal leaders who are still wishy-washy on legalization and prefer to stall by ordering expensive redundant studies, don’t give a shit about sensible pot smokers and as citizens they are expendable. Particularly Black and Hispanic pot smokers. Maybe they’ll all get a card for their unnecessary troubles.
What drug decriminalization can be implemented to save society and what still can’t
In other city wide issues under the purview of Mayor de Blasio, in this city’s schools, attacks on teachers by students went up by 4.5% at a total of over 10,000 incidents, stats that are in utter contrast with Mayor de Blasio’s claims that schools have never been safer.
And if some teachers aren’t under enough stress dealing with wayward kids they also have to worry about their predatory horny faculty peers, as a report was released exposing 590 complaints of sexual harassment of teachers and workers for the Department of Education during de Blasio’s first term derived from a total report of 1,300 sexual harassment complaints from all city municipal agencies. Which this fucking mayor publicly and condescendingly dismissed as “hyper-complaint-dynamics”. Leaving no doubt that this deranged concoction term is behind any reason why cases in any city agency get ignored.
And robberies in the subway has gone up 54%. Now back to the five borough blotter.

The junk merchant doesn’t sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to his product. He does not improve and simplify his merchandise. He degrades and simplifies the client.
