Gov. Cuomo to conservatives: Get out of New York !

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made it clear Friday that if you’re a conservative Republican, you have no business being in New York.

“Their [Republicans] problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” Cuomo said on “The Capitol Pressroom” radio show, according to the New York Post.

Cuomo defined the conservative Republican New Yorkers he wanted to send packing.

“Who are they?” he said. “Right-to-life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Really? If that’s the governor’s wish, he’d be looking to get rid of many patriotic Americans.

In 2009, a Gallup poll found pro-lifers had become the new majority in the United States, and their numbers are growing.

Pro-assault weapons? So any New Yorker who adds a pistol grip and an accessory rail to an ordinary rifle is suddenly persona non grata?

I’m not sure what Cuomo means by “anti-gay.” Conservatives aren’t generally anti-gay so much as they’re anti-gay marriage.

Rush Limbaugh’s gatekeeper, ‘Snerdley,’ opens up

But the real question is, what does his statement mean in the context of “diversity,” a term liberals like to bring up at every opportunity? Cuomo even appointed a diversity officer to his staff just four months ago.

“I am pleased to welcome Mecca Santana to my administration to serve as New York State’s Chief Diversity Officer,” Cuomo said according to the governor’s website. “Ms. Santana will bring more than a decade of public sector experience to the position, and she has a proven track record in working on equal opportunity, civil rights and diversity issues in government. Ms. Santana will be a great asset in our efforts to ensure state government is inclusive and fairly represents the great diversity of New York State.”

Apparently, the governor is all for diversity, as long as everyone is just like him. Figure that one out.

New York Daily News columnist and CNN “Crossfire” co-host S.E. Cupp took to Twitter to express her disgust, saying:

Others wonder what would happen if the tables had been turned — how would the public respond if a conservative governor said he didn’t want any liberal Democrats in his state?

David Burge, who blogs as “Iowa Hawk,” had a hilarious answer:

 

As for chasing away New York’s residents, Cuomo has already gotten the ball rolling.

A 2012 Tax Foundation study found that excessive taxation is causing New Yorkers to leave the Empire State in droves. It reported that New York lost 3.4 million residents in 10 years. Onerous regulation is causing businesses to join the exodus, which continues to this day, much of it to the Sunshine State.

Between taxes and politics, Cuomo will soon have New York taking Wyoming’s place as the least populous state in the nation.

    While I don’t agree with this A***hole, I have to say these new yorkers have only themselves to blame. If they allow this crap to go on, then take the abuse, have a coca cola and have a nice day.

    Reminds me of all those Jewish families during Hitler’s time. They remained quiet, hoping to keep “under the radar” and “unnoticed” until things settled down. Well, we now know “how well” that worked. #smh

    • Herman Vogel

      Remember, most of the morons that support this tyrant are the same ones that voted in the New Mayor of NYC….so…

      • Kana60

        Agreed. One of the biggest problems with NY is the liberal population of NYC outweighing and distorting the views of the rest of the state. NYC should secede from NY State and stop leeching off the rest of the State. The same ones that also support Chuck & Kirsten.
        Remove NYC from the equation and NY State becomes a much less restricted place to live.

        • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

          It is too bad that we can’t take NY…Along with most of New England…Add all of the Left Coast…and IL….and FLOAT THEM INTO THE OCEAN and REJOIN ALL OF THEM…into the NEW COUNTRY CALLED the “LIBERAL STATES OF STUPIDITY or LSS…

          • BlueViolets

            You can only take Chicago as that is basically where all the Democrats are(welfare group). The rest of Illinois has enough conservatives to keep the rest at bay.

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            You are Correct in what you say….I Grew up and lived most of my life in WI…and spent alot of time in the Chicago Area on Businesses…so I know that that Cesspool of Corruption has been contolled by the D****RAT Party Machine for over 100 years…All you have to do is Drive Through the South Side…To get a Good picture of what LIBERAL CONTROL any place looks like…

          • patriotgrammy

            I spent a lot of time in Chicago on business as well – what you say is very true.

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            Do you live in IL…or the Midwest??

          • pen44

            Exactly, BlueViolets! I grew up in the farmlands of Madison County, very conservative people. The big cities are where the Liberal Loonatics live…that’s where their inner city plantations are. They keep the slaves ill-educated, living on welfare, in violent crime-ridden neighborhoods with no hope for the future.

            On the Left Coast, where I live now, the Calipornia Liberal Slime has slithered northward. Portland has surrendered, as has Seattle. Seattle/King County is quickly turning into another Chicago/Cook County. The eastern 2/3′s of both Oregon & Washington are farms & ranch lands, very red.

          • pat ange

            Don’t you dare clump the east coast with this crap. N. C. has a very conservative population. Trow Chicargo and Detroit in that mix

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            If you read my post…I was saying NY….New England……NOT the Southern East Coast States….The Left Coast is CA…OR..and WA…..

          • pat ange

            Thanks for clearing that up. Don’t forget to add Chicago to the mix. Maybe they can form their own country & name it the new Left wing Sodom & Gomorrah; land of sin & immorality

          Assuming you are a Nu Yawka, just how do you propose that? BTW, I think its a dandy idea, just wish how we could get rid of the Denver/Boulder corridor.

          • Kana60

            How about NYC applies for statehood and annexes itself from NY State for a start. BTW those that would call themselves Nu Yawka’s with an emphasized accent would be from the greater NYC area not Upstate where everything isn’t concrete and steel. Commonly known to Nu Yawka’s as the country, where you go to pick apples, buy wine and look at pretty leaves.

          • pandainc

            ‘the country’. How sweet of them to be so dismissive. Nice idea, but why would the NYC progressives divest themselves from the tax monies of the state?

          • pat ange

            We don’t need this trash as a state; they think they are so great; let them start their on country. We’ll give them Obama and CUM O can be veep

          • badbadlibs

            Put aside your hatred of Jews and stop reading into what I said.
            Oh….and you think your threat is something new? Your brand of hatred is as old as time.

    • missnellie

      Your comment comes from someone unfamiliar with NYC or the State of New York….therefore, it should be dismissed. If you don’t know what you are talking about then don’t blog.
      Also, your remarks about the Jew’s is despicable and reflects that you are without a doubt a bigot. Shame on you!

      • Simplicity101

        Amazing how the party that claims to be so tolerant continues to react with intolerance. This comment alone is another example. I will point out again Cuomo’s comments from his State of the State address 10 days ago. Read it and notice the complete contradiction. This is unacceptable and he needs to be held accountable:

        This state said to the entire world: ‘we are open for business and we welcome everyone here to this great state of New York.’ That is the Statue of Liberty in the harbor. Come one, come all, we don’t care the color of your skin or your religion or how much money you have in your pocket; you come to New York and we will welcome you and work with you and invite you into the family of New York. And while other states say we’re afraid of diversity; while other states are building fences; we say we’re excited by the diversity. We welcome the diversity. The diversity is what made us in the first place, and we believe we can take that diversity and we can take those differences and we can make one from those differences. We believe we can forge community from the people we welcome here. The concept of community is ‘we’re all in this together’ – there is a cord that connects you to you to you and that cord weaves a fabric, and when one of us is raised we’re all raised and when one of us is lowered we’re all lowered, because we’re part of one community and we’re part of one fabric. That is what made New York great and that’s what continues to make New York great. At the end of the day, we are one. We are upstate, we are downstate, but we are one. We are Latino, we are African American, but we are one. We’re New York City and we are Buffalo, but we are one. We are Democrats and Republicans but we are one. That is the promise of this great state. That is E Pluribus Unum, out of many: one. It’s the founding premise, the enduring promise. It’s the promise that we inherited from our parents, and the promise of New York that we’re going to pass on to our children. The promise, my friends, that we are going to make a reality in this great state working together.

        • missnellie

          Point well taken…yet it is easy to copy a speech. My point remains…you don’t live nor have you lived in New York. I find Cuomo’s remarks despicable.
          And I repeat, because it is necessary, that your remarks about Jews only reveals your bigotry.
          It is simple to copy and paste….it is another thing to know one has to live through what lies ahead. As for the voters…come to NYC and witness what lives there minus those who honestly work very hard yet pay for it through the cost of living. To generalize is pathetic.

          • Simplicity101

            I have lived, worked and paid taxes in NYS my entire life…never collected one day of unemployment or public assistance. I am one of the few pulling the cart in this state while others enjoy a free ride. The bottom of that cart is about to fall out!

          • pandainc

            Again, Leave???

          • Simplicity101

            You are attacking a fellow New Yorker. You may choose to live downstate while I choose to live in the western part of upstate…so I know NY as well as anyone. And…the copy and paste was important to point out the complete hypocrisy that these progressives spew.

          • missnellie

            I choose the Adirondacks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seems we both know NY but our views differ. I believe there is a tendency to separate the State from NYC…and I suppose that is wise. Your point is well taken. “SKI WHITEFACE”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Sharpshooter

            Your post could pretty much apply to any liberal, communist state. Normallly the average resident of any state has very little input to the state of politics within that state.

          • pandainc

            Regrettably, most states are getting to that point. One or two big cities are the dog and the rest of the state is the tail. I have no solution, just affirming the problem.

          • curmudgeon

            The big cities have the very best in welfare handouts. Helps keep democrap politicians at the trough.

          • pandainc

            Exactly so. I feel for my granddaughter.

          • pandainc

          • pandainc

            Geez. I didn’t think it required explanation — my bad. If New York (state) is so messed up (it is) because of New York City (which is going to get much much worse), leave — find another place to live. If you don’t want to leave, then change it or eat it.

          • curmudgeon

            You made that so simple that even a liberal should be able to work their way through it.

          • pandainc

            I would have thought so, but missnellie is in a snit. One good thing about her last, however, is that I now understand the meaning of solecistic. Had to look that one up.

          • missnellie

            HOW FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I am not in a “snit”!!!!!!!!!!!

          • missnellie

            It ceases to amaze me at the mentality of a blogger who finds it a pleasure to be obnoxious, rude, solecistic and presents his remarks with the level of a three year old’s tantrum.

          • pandainc

            You live in Nu Yawk and I’M obnoxious, rude and solecistic? I find that quite amusing! BTW, how about “I am amazed at the mentality …” And spare me another dig — I don’t want to force you to make another trip to the Thesaurus.

          • missnellie

            Sorry I am too tempted….I don’t need a Thesaurus…I actually know the work – WOW! No, I do not live in NEW YORK CITY. Another did is well justified. You are still obnoxious.

          • pandainc

            Well, well, well. I don’t know why I’m doing this — I guess you can take the boy out of NJ (about 60 years ago), but you can’t take NJ our of the boy, so –

            No, you don’t live in NYC, you said much earlier you live in the Adirondack Mountains. As I recall, you and others were sniveling about how NYC ran the state, which prompted me to make the ‘leave’ comment, which necessitated an explanation, as you couldn’t understand a simple declarative statement of one word with only one syllable.

            “I actually know the work.” Did you perchance mean ‘word’? Just askin’.

            “Another did is well justified.” Now there is a lucid sentence from the English major. Sounds like something my wife might have said — and her native language was Japanese.

            Obnoxious? Yes, but I am SOOOO loveable.

          • missnellie

            Pandainc: I am not limited to the misunderstanding to “leave” but find it prompted by a person who persists in considering himself a man of view words and with the misunderstanding that one word explatives are to be to taken to heart immmediatedly and comprehended. FYI…I grew up in NJ so you are messing with a Jersey Girl who will refuse to take you seriously and to heart. “WORD”….no I did not us it. I actually have quite an adequate vocabulary!!!!!!! ENGLISH MAJOR…you do digress. Don’t use you wife as a leverage for you. If being loveable is being obnoxious….good help the rest of us.

      • Simplicity101

        I think Farrightofleft was simply pointing out how many of the Jews feared speaking up during Hitler’s rise to power. Let me compare it to the famous first they came… And, yes, another copy and paste because it brings home the point:

        First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Socialist.

        Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

        Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Jew.

        Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.

        • missnellie

          I have to admit I totally respect your response. I am not a Jew either but have Jews in my family…need I say more? Until one is exposed to the horrors of their past one cannot feel their anguish. I cannot say why the Jews reacted the way they did while Hitler led them to the trains…..all I can say is I know families who’s ancestors were in concentration camps. People tend to lump Jews into one category…which is hard to explain. But my family members are fine people who can prove what happened to their mothers, fathers, sisters and brother…or friends.

          • Simplicity101

            We really are all one in the same…a free people who choose to keep our freedom at any cost. The parallel to how the Jews were treated and what our government leaders are engaging in is simply frightening. No one blames the Jews for their reaction at the time. In the beginning, they didn’t want to believe in their hearts the evilness their government was capable of. We must learn from history’s lessons and not repeat the same mistakes.

      Consider this a warning to other states. New York is a largely conservative state, except for the politically malignant tumor hanging onto its tail, New York City. You say it’s our fault, but despite our getting out to rally, protest, and vote, the illegal immigrants and welfare state now comfortably outnumber us.

      Blame us, fine. But heed my warning. Your state has a Houston, an Atlanta, or a St. Louis that if left unchecked will be the tail that wags the dog in your state.

            You may have misunderstood, I was talking about Tom Brady, not Peyton. Our guys were certainly not sub-par, especially against the run on defense and the entire offensive line (who would have been my choice for the game ball).

          • Tricia Anthone

            I can be such a bimbo sometimes! Holy buckets, of course you’re talking about the Patriots QB! Yea, everyone seems to think that Brady should have made it a less one-sided contest. I haven’t watched enough of Brady to have recognized a bad game for him but sure was happy about it!

          • pandainc

            You’re not a bimbo, you just read it too quickly. And I have seen some games where TB was just unstoppable. Like you said, we’ll take it. If there was one team in the league I was leery of, the Pats were it.

      • pandainc

        A very well reasoned response which accurately states not just NY’s problem, but most states.

    • Dominic De Falco

      Remember that people like him start by taking the city, then the county, then the state, then the region, etc… We need to stop ignoring and running and confront this disease, fight it and destroy it at every level. The longer we wait, the more this disease spreads!

      • NoCrud

        Democrats believe that if there is no objection or protest to what they say or do, then it has been accepted. If we Conservatives do indeed sublimely “go along with it,” it is the same as being an Accessory after the Fact.

        • Tricia Anthone

          Conservatives tend to be of conservative disposition, too. This works to our disadvantage in a political setting.

    So anybody who disagrees with the Democrats should leave New York. Makes sense to me. That way nobody has to justify their position politically, socially, morally, financially, etc. Is New York a great state or what?

        I see your point. No better way for the people of New York to know what they lost than to force them to realize what they have indeed lost. It takes time to do it, though.

        California has learned this lesson, too. While they were busy doing the Obamaroid thing by ignoring it, California was finally forced to recognize that so many companies/corporations leaving for more friendly places like Texas is something they cannot push aside any longer. New York will do the usual thing, then, and follow California’s lead.

        • gian2012

          Yup, all California legislators do is raise taxes and pass gun laws while the state goes to hell in a handbasket. I left in ’99 never to return to live there. I like Nevada better where I still have my 2nd Amendment rights and freedom especially from onerous taxes.

          • NoCrud

            I left CA after working there for 17 years and retiring. I also will not live there as a choice. Too many other good choices that trump the state. And I lived in NY, also. It only took me one year of working there to realize, like with CA, that I needed to move on to greener pastures.

            Don’t get me wrong, there are good people in both CA and NY but if they could do it, many of them would leave. However, some are liberals and love living there like a ‘possum loves a bucket of manure: They know no better and anywhere they went, they’d eventually turn it into a cesspool because that’s all they know.

            They thinks they can decide what guns you can own, OK then we can decide what religion the can practice. I don’t like them muzzys so we could make it a felony to practice it.

        • James Andrews

          Both New York and California hva e a lot in common; more dangerous places to live, far fewer rights(especially gun rights), high taxes, etc. Nope….you can have them!

      • IHateLibs

        I hope they do too . Conservatives are Welcome in a Lot of Other BETTER States . And CHEAPER LIVING Too

    • IHateLibs

      GOOD MOVE

  • canuck

    In return we should then return all the New York refugees littering Florida back to the hell hole they created.

    • GuidoFL

      What you said, thumbs up !

      • gian2012

        Agreed, Colorado got Californicated from California refugees and now has a Dummycrat majority state government that sure enough passed new anti-gun laws and cost the state plenty in lost revenue. The libs run from where they were but still bring their politics with them which they will now use to destroy Florida. Detroit was under Dummycrat rule for decades thanks to dumbed down voters and look at the city today, it’s just a big ghetto in Michigan that’s bankrupt.

        • sroysr

          same thing happened to new hampshire with the exodus from massachusetts

          • NoCrud

            There is a New York — New Jersey connection, also.

      • missnellie

        What canuck said is pathetic and cruel. Another person lumping all people of a certain State into one category. I lived in Florida for over eleven years and NEVER had issues with “New York refugees”. Darn it, stop being so bogited!!!!!!!!

        • badbadlibs

          I agree with you, however, there’s a phenomenon that seems to occur with the mass exodus of people from liberal states.

          Where I live it use to be dark red, now it’s the darkest blue you can imagine. The Californians seem to have brought their “politics” with them. That seems to be what they do, they leave the states that have tormented their lives and take their democrat ideology with them. How else can anyone explain a group of human beings that would vote for a scoundrel like Alan Grayson….twice!

    • SusieQ

      Exactly, they come to Florida bringing the liberal values with them. Why? That’s why they say they left N.Y. they did not like what the liberals have done there. Coming to Florida trying to change what Floridians have created with their Democratic votes. I lived in quite a few of the northern states including N.Y. I know both sides of the coin. You know who elected Alan Grayson don’t you, need I say more?

      • badbadlibs

        Great minds think alike!
        I can’t imagine the sub human that would vote for Grayson once, never mind twice! Or a group of humans that would turn away Alan West.

        • missnellie

          Love Alan West!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • NoCrud

            We have not heard the last of Col. West.

      • missnellie

        I get your point….but please not all northerners are liberals. I am one and conservative as heck. I suppose it depends on where you live in Florida but truly I never experienced “their Democratic votes”. I too know both sides of the coin and respect your view point but still contend there are numerous good people from the northern states.

        • SusieQ

          I agree with you, I lived at one time in upstate N.Y. and the political leaning were entirely different from the time I lived near N.Y. City and experienced that mind set. I also really feel for the people in upstate N’Y. who have borne the brunt of the liberal vote and have seen their communities destroyed by high rising taxes, unemployment, even before Obama, and welfare abuse. I also think after about a couple of years of the new mayor in N,Y, City the voters there will change their mind about who they voted for.

  • NoCrud

    Cuomo better be glad that there are Pro-Life people in the state and also hope that it extends beyond the womb.

  • petsnpeopletoo

    NewYork is on the road to another Detroit Ruin…I’m in MI and we Need to get rid of the socialist democrat to help fix this….EVERYONE NEEDS TO VOTE INDEPENDENT. BOTH PARTIES IN OUR GOVERNMENT ARE TRAITORS AGAINST OUR CONSTITUTION OF THE USA…..THEY ARE AGAINST US AND NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE…On May 16, 2014 General LaValely has called for at least 10 million american’s to be in DC and plan to stay till several are removed from office…..These Tyrannts are in both Dems/Reps that are trying to push us into a New World Order under Islam Leadership with Sharia Law…..It only took Hitler 5 years for his take over of Germany and Obomber is almost there with the USA….WAKE UP AMERICAN’S…..

    • NoCrud

      First, let’s get rid of the Democrats. And also keep in mind that Democrats will always be Democrats and will never, ever split their vote. But also remember that part of the Democrats’ strategy is to split/divide the opponents’ votes so the Democrats lower overall numbers will still be greater than any of the other numbers. AFTER getting the Republican Party back in power, then we need to go after all the RINOs that are left after 2014 and 2016. Otherwise, the Ross Perot effect will set in and we will be left with nothing but regret.

      • petsnpeopletoo

        We Don’t need Dems or Reps running anything. They are all in the take over and push for their Communist NWO….We need an independent voted in and get away from these Corporate planted polititians…

        • NoCrud

          That’s what we NEED but if we want to beat the Democrats, we must beat them with a Republican. Voting to “send a message” and to “vote the conscience” gave us the fraud in the Oval Office.

          Political Pundits will tell you that the ONLY entity that can beat the Democrat Party is the Republican Party. Again, splitting the vote is a Democrat strategy.

          IF winning over the Democrat is wanted, then go at it a step at a time. First step is to beat them and this is not by dong what the Democrats want: Splitting or dividing the vote with a personal hero or someone who is charismatic or a potential RINO. We need to vote in good Conservatives and get rid of RINOs. Insisting on voting for some third party or not voting at all got us the fraud with the #14 Narrows parked on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.

          Don’t be a Democrat pawn.

          • Kibber_SF

            Republicans should be smart enough to stop voter fraud. We’ve been hearing this bleat for decades. Are the Dems smarter or more clever?

          • NoCrud

            As long as Soros “owns” the voting process and it’s being done by a company in Spain,we are screwed:

            “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
            — Joseph Stalin

          • Doug

            So while Bush was in and had a GOP Congress Soros was still able to do this. Sounds like GOP asleep at the switch.

        Sounds like an easily doable plan.

      Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

      It
      was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

      It
      was you who purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

      It
      was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Quran.

      It
      was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.

      It
      was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of
      the World Trade Center.

      It
      was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.

      It
      was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast,
      you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.

      It
      was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

      It
      was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.

      It

      It
      was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

      is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

      It

      It
      was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally
      in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

      Do we really need to go on?

      Barack, you may be a lot of things; but, for certainty, you are no Christian.

      Obama, who refers to himself as: “A man of Africa”,
      is precisely the type of ‘divided loyalties” individual that our Founders attempted to prohibit from ascendancy to the presidency when they constructed
      our Constitution.

      • bill

        It’s amazing how this evil, tyrannical America hating despot is still in office!! Just one of the aforementioned acts would have been reason for impeachment not only by Republicans, but Democrats as well just a few years ago! How could the Democratic party have changed so much in the last 5 or 6 years? It’s like they are being controlled by some sort of intergalactical force they have no control over!! Their thoughts and actions defy logic~ perhaps it’s the fulfillment of Revelation 17-17 !!

        • NoCrud

          And I believe that this verse is also interesting here and it tends to corroborate what you said:

          Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

          • bill

            So true! As well, the Harlot (America) must be destroyed in order for prophecy to be fulfilled! The only thing that holds us together as a nation is our Constitution! As well, flesh is what holds us together as a physical body! Therefore, the Constitution is the flesh that holds our nation together. Revelation 17-16 speaks of the flesh(Constitution) of the Harlot (America) being eaten away, which means that He has put it in their hearts to destroy our Constitution, which in turn would make our nation as a whole dissipate and each state would become it’s own country. The Federal govt would as well cease to exist. No federal monetary system would exist. The dollar would become worthless globally, resulting in global chaos since 65% of the global economy is based on the dollar! The U N (the Beast) would be the only organization that could step in and take over by creating a global govt and a global economy! Rev 18 speaks of the aftermath of the destruction of the Harlot-Babylon the Great (America). All this occurs in one Bible hour, which is the equivalent of 45 years real time. We are currently around the 6th year of the 45!

    I remember camping once in New York in my RV, in the Adirondacks. What sticks out in my mind was the posted rules and regulations. The number of them was HUGE! Large poster, very small print, HUGE number of rules, which of course translates into a small degree of freedom.

    High taxes also take away personal freedom, of course. And New York reportedly has that also, in spades.

    And now we learn the state’s Democrat politicians have “an attitude” also.

    No wonder people are leaving the state in droves!

    While I am pro-life personally, I hope to God (or Crimony, whichever works best for our parolees) that those “professional lifers” eventually learn that other people’s concerns and opinions are none of their freaking business. I’ve been pro-lifed to death, and I’m male. As for the pro-lifees, the ones hawkered, harried, booed, cursed at by the jack-crazed lunatics who seem to be “getting-off” on victimizing young, heartbroken, confused and desperate women who may have had an accidental pregnancy, a rape or an incest experience, all by the rosy palms of Jebus, all I have to say, “Life is not a book, nor a book deal, nor a concept, nor some mythologically angelic Valkyries riding herd on those who do not kow-tow to their absolutely totalitarian whirl-view.” Thin Lizzie Cheney.

    Worship and warship: apparently with some girlie-boyz (not the gay ones, but those who fight like little girls and feel victimized when people call down their imaginary insurgency), there’s no difference at all.

    Rather than accomplish tasks quite difficult–like spending all their money feeding hungry babies and children–fundamentalist evangelicals would rather take easy street because it’s just so dramatic and symbolic to tape one’s mouth shut and stand at attention like a spiritual WWE wrestler on crack.
