Eric Garner was selling cigarettes on the street and 6 cops took him down? He died because he was making pennies selling Newports? Why such strict enforcement of this ridiculous prohibition? Think it has anything to do with the fact that those loose cigarettes are UNTAXED cigarettes? You bet it does.
It Seems the NYC Unions Frown on Walmart and the Waltons
What is with this guy? He just thinks there is too much freedom. Guns, salt, soda, whatever. He knows best. The citizenry are to be tolerated to the degree that they are living annuities which keep the economy humming and that is about it.

I’ve seen Mr. Bloomberg a few times in person. Each time he holds court and the people around him defer and genuflect. I get a very Napoleon like vibe from him.
I wonder if he, like Napoleon did, thinks that he is guided by a “shining star.” That Bloomberg’s will is fate, and fate is his will. New York is blessed to be under his rule.
The federal government has just decided that poverty for family of 4 in New York City means an income of up to $37,500, not $22,500. Quite a leap. As before, the figure excludes earned income tax credit cash checks from the government and also medical and other non-cash assistance.
