I mean, aren’t geishas supposed to be soothing and harmonious?
Sen. Graham, in complete and shrill, shrill, shrill flip-the-script-in-the-service-of-treason mode, wants to investigate McCabe and the FBI for their patriotism. They understood that there was something rotten in Trumpland, and that something had the potential to bring this country down.
So they launched an investigation.
Amazon’s rout was, I think, one of the early manifestations of the campaign to take back this city that has been launched by the citizens of this city, who have been ripped off for so long by the city using public funds to subsidize private wealth–and ensuring that that wealth goes untaxed.
In no sector has the NYC population been more fleeced than with housing. In 2017’s How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood, Peter Moscowitz [under 30, no less] describes the way that “Entire neighborhoods are becoming stash pads for the global elite who see real estate as a safer investment than the stock market. . .Absentee home ownership has grown by 70 percent in Manhattan since 2000.”
And, excuse me, didn’t a certain megalomaniacal mayor who keeps threatening to run for president become mayor in 2002?
Shocking but not surprising to learn that Amazon pays no federal income tax on a multi-billionaire dollar annual profit.
And this is the type of racket that our mayor and governor think should be encouraged.
Amazon is still going to be increasingly investing in the five boroughs, it’s just that we taxpayers won’t be paying for their gravy train.
And btw, just asking:
what happens to NYC when the tech market it moves heaven an earth to propitiate collapses, as it inevitably will?
Trump’s unutterably insane presser today would seem to prove that he is out of his mind and/or under the influence of some hallucinogenic.
His confrontational mania as he “engaged” with journalists referencing facts would seem to prove that he must be prescribed psychotropic meds.
Fiddling, fidgeting, and tweaking, the hours that Lisa spent sharpening up those Soviet archival photos–
was worth it as we looked around the room and saw how absorbed in Yuri Soloviev’s story the attendees were on Monday night.
Thank you, Lynn Garafola, for inviting us to speak at Columbia’s dance seminar series.
As long as it subsidizes the wealthy.
The moment some socialism trickles down to the poor and middle class–forget it.
There would be no President Trump were it not for our woefully imbalanced socialism.
It would be oh so punitive if the U.S. made our billionaires pay their fair share in taxes, wouldn’t it?
And the Dems are afraid of a Howard Schultz run?
Another joker running for president.
Forgive me, beloved blog reader, for not posting over the past week.
Lisa came up from Houston on Friday and we spent the next three days tearing up, re-stitching, tweaking, fidgeting, and twiddling our presentation at Columbia.
More on that later.
On Monday, Lisa Whitaker and I will present on Peoples’ Artist: The Life and Death of Yuri Soloviev.
