Mad Cow Mayor’s 3rd Term Maddness
This mayor is supposed to be the ” Businessman Mayor”. Someone who is more attuned to the private sector and as such knows that small businesses are the greatest drivers of the economy. Now in these times of economic strife we need good policies that actually foster a proper environment to welcome new entrepreneurs into the area. Well would someone please show me where exactly that is happening?
They are stories all over the local papers about the Health Department going into places of business and shutting them down. In the paper today they were almost bragging about the fact that they bled 42 million dollars away from private businesses this year alone. Aren’t these agencies supposed to protect and not act like parasites? All of these are small enterprises who are barely making it as is and this city is treating these young upstarts like a virus treats a host. No wonder the Mom and Pop ventures are all but dead. How can they survive in a economic climate as this? Between the burdensome tax levies and the insane regulations on top of insurance costs that are crippling how does anyone make it? Sanitation, State Liquor Authority, Health Department and a bunch of Gestapo-like zealots who go around ticketing people like its’ a game. The time has come for the State to stop carving up the Golden Goose and pulling out those eggs manually and start caring for that blessed bird and give her some love and care and let the gold come naturally on its own. This pathetic leadership has crushed the very spirit of the greatest city on Earth. I see some good coming out of our Governor in his State of the State but to be honest I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Even with all this I am still a “Glass is half Full” sort of guy. Truth be told the end of this Mayor’s Reign will be a great day for small business and on a personal note any leader who could of supported a Mosque down at Ground Zero should never hold office in this United States of America. I wonder if his opinion would of been different if it were Georgina or Emma in those Towers that fateful day. God Bless my Jody…it’s been over 10 years since they robbed me from you and I’ll be damned if I let them build on your ashes. I love you my Angel.
