Now there is another epidemic brewing which mainstream media refuses to talk about. What a surprise? They ignore the problem. Major cities across the country are experiencing an exodus from fed up people. Droves of people have had it.
NY is just one with hemorrhaging numbers leaving the city. I mean they made a calculated decision what is best for themselves and their family, so they bugged out.
Politicians may have a couple different responses to this. Mayor De Blasio has said whatever happens in NY, there will always be people willing to come and live in NY. (whatever?) What planet is this guy on? Imagine saying such a thing?
Translation: whatever harm we inflict on people and the city, there will always be people dumb enough to accept or tolerate it as a way of life. (what choice do they have) Sounds more like a punch line. And apparently he is not willing to adjust course based on people’s preferences. But he can adjust policy to defunding the police based on what the mob screams in his ear – which he happens to agree with.
Gov. Cuomo made a national plea to exiled New Yorkers to come back. “Please!” He did so publicly. He said he’s been calling them. He’s offered them personal enticements and even said he’d cook a meal for them if they come back to NY State. So there we are folks, as a last resort try to bribe them. ‘Get back here, I want your money!’
Who am I to butt into NY’ers business, but why would anyone consider taking the bait from Gov. Cuomo when they already know what he thinks of them, and what he wants to do to them? They don’t want a free dinner, they want security and the 4th Amendment.
Actually it turns out that Socialists don’t care what you think or want. It’s all for the Marxist collective that they care about. But your money is their jet fuel. And all the problems or crises are only “opportunities” for them to expand their powers.
However, a mass exodus of people voting with their feet is a big problem, if people don’t want to be subject to a tyranny of control. That’s one thing that causes them problems.
Try seeing it through the eyes of business. Well, most businesses work on some future planning, say a basic five-year plan. But when a business is in an unstable environment, where security is in question and has already been breached, you never know from day to day if you can exist. It all becomes too sketchy.
All businesses want is some stability and a little local security so it is not destroyed. One of my first jobs was in an urban area outside a metropolitan area. A new convenience store was boarded up because it could not stand the losses in that environment. Local people said it was their only store, “I hope it doesn’t close up.” But the owners had no choice.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
It is not just NYC but many cities like Chicago, Seattle or Portland. People will have to leave. It gets pols’ attention but what are they willing to do about it? If you cannot be secure in your property, it is a problem. Almost as if leftists never thought of that before. Like De Blasio said, there are always people willing to stay there. Really?
Baltimore should have been lesson #1. When they stood down the police to allow thugs room to loot and destroy property or businesses, what does it say? Your property is their pawn in hostage negotiation. Just let them destroy the property, don’t stop them. They decided it is better to allow that than confront them. Where do thugs get their ideas?
It is no longer business, it becomes hostage negotiation.
