Radical New York Governor is Just a Typical Democrat

The policies of New York Governor have become increasingly radical over the past few years. But when you think about it, he is directly reflective of the democrat party as a whole. The whole lot of them have never been more radical then they are today. It’s almost as if they intentionally want to burn down the entire traditional American system and rebuild it in their own warped image. But that couldn’t be it – right?

Andrew Cuomo: Criminals’ Best Friend

Thirty-five years ago, as a late teen, I came to New York to attend yeshiva.  As an avid follower of news and politics, I recall cringing every time I heard then–New York governor Mario Cuomo on the radio, as he pontificated on the issues of the day, spewing forth liberal platitudes as if they were divine truths that no one dare question, while failing to say anything of substance, as the state was falling apart.  It was a disgrace.

Seventeen years later, Cuomo’s son, Andrew, was sworn in as the 56th governor of New York.  Although none of my friends or family members voted for him, people commented at the time that Andrew Cuomo was better than his father — pro-business; anti-crime; not as politically correct; and willing to take on ultra-progressives, such as NYC mayor Bill de Blasio.  The crime rate in New York State was not escalating, the rate of businesses leaving the state was not increasing, and things seemed sort of OK for a state led by a Democrat (although issues of morality, with Cuomo’s infatuation with “gay pride” and his non-marital domestic relationship, left much to be desired). read more

WND Exclusive – GOV. CUOMO BEGINS MARCH TOWARD INFANTICIDE

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

One thing we know about progressive ideas is that they must always advance. It’s the very meaning of progress – it must always be moving forward, although the “forward” part is debatable.

And so it is with progressive legislation, or regulation. Progressive legislation passed or regulations mandated never begin as onerous as the author envisions, or first reveals.

The eventuality is always worse than its commencement. This is the progressive modus operandi. American history is replete with examples of this progress, like Social Security, welfare, unemployment insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. read more

New York Bans Fracking On Fear, Not Science

from Reason.com:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has acquiesced to a ban of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of shale to produce natural gas in his state based on “uncertainties” concerning the possible effects of the activity on public health. Essentially, the New York Department of Health (DOH) report Cuomo cites defaulted to the precautionary principle:

When an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, precautionary measures should be taken even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. In this context the proponent of an activity, rather than the public, should bear the burden of proof.
