Impeach + AOC

I saw these two photos separately.


But I instantly realized that they belong together. 


Like peanut butter and jelly. 


Who is a bigger pee brain than AOC?


* She impulsively lost 25,000 jobs and $5 billion investment in NYC from Amazon (as well as about $27.5 billion in tax revenue over 25 years). 


* Her ridiculous Green New Deal wanted to rid us of farting cows and airplanes and didn’t get a single yes vote in the Senate (even from her own party). 


* AOC stated that the three branches of government are the “the presidency, the senate, and the house” (Uh, wrong!). 


* Ocasio-Cortez boasts insanely that government deficit-spending doesn’t really matter (hmm, I wonder is that how she handles her personal finances too?).


* She allies herself with fellow anti-American and anti-Semites like:

– Ilhan “(Schmilhan) Somebody Did Something [on 9/11]” Omar

– Rashida “(Israel-Hater) They Forgot What Country They Represent” Tlaib

– Linda “Muslim Brotherhood” Sarsour


How did anyone actually vote for (or support) people like these to run this amazing country?  😉

-25,000 Jobs NYC

While some politicians are hard at work to create jobs, revive our manufacturing, and expand our economy…


…Others like NY Representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are busy destroying jobs from her city. 


After a grueling competition for the Amazon HQ2 with 200 cities offering incentives to land one of two 2nd Headquarters for Amazon, the winners were Arlington, VA and Long Island City, NY.


These lucky cities were to divide 50,000 new jobs and $5 billion in investment by technology and e-Commerce behemoth, Amazon. 


Instead of thanking G-d for their good fortune and celebrating their win under the political savvy of New York’s Governor, Andrew Cuomo and NYC’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez railed against the “corporate welfare” and basically killed the deal. 


What should be critically noted is that incentives for Amazon were based on meeting their performance benchmarks for NYC and Arlington and were not corporate charity or handouts. 


What Socialist, Ocasio-Cortez failed to understand is that Capitalism is successful precisely because of competition and incentives for performance, and that capital is ideally allocated to where it can get its highest return. 


In short, New York and Virginia weren’t giving away the farm, they were competing for great jobs and investment in their cities–and that’s what 200 cities recognized from Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. 


Aside from AOC’s blatant bigotry and Anti-Semitism so far, she has goofed with a Green Deal that promised income security (socialist handouts) to those “unwilling to work” and sought to get rid of everything from “farting cows” to Airplanes, and now she’s lost 25,000 jobs in NY. 


Voters in NY and Democrats in Congress should be paying attention to their new Socialist champion and one of its extremists in chief.

Cockroach Tea

So I went into this store in Chinatown in Washington, D.C. and was looking around. 


I saw this chest of draws with all sorts of herbs and insects listed. 


One draw included a label for “Cockroach”.


I asked innocently:

Do you have cockroaches in there?


The lady behind the counter responds in broken English:

Oh yes, there are roaches in there. 


Again, not understanding the relationship to the herbs for sale, I inquire:

What are the roaches used for?


The lady looks at me a little more intently and says:

It is for tea–cockroach tea!


My eyes literally bugged out and I go for a third round:

Do people drink that for health reasons?


She responds:

Yes, and it is good for managing pain. 


Hesitatingly, I asked her to take out the bag and open it so I could see for myself. 


I don’t know about you, but growing up in NYC, we definitely didn’t value cockroaches as part of our diet–in fact, we did everything we could to try and rid ourselves of these disgusting insects–but usually to no avail. 


The roaches survived everything we could throw at them!


If they are so resilient, maybe they can provide some health benefits to people (who knows–you’ve got to respect ancient alternative medicines), but I will only say this, you won’t get me anywhere near this roach tea–and not for all the tea in China!  😉

Stop Playing Politics With Our Security

Another terrorist attack in NYC, not far from the World Trade Center, now memorial!


Radical Islamist mows down pedestrians and bicycle riders in a bike lane along the West Side Highway. 


– 8 innocent people dead.


– Another dozen wounded. 


Now, the Mayor and pundits say, ah maybe we should’ve had barricades up there so someone with a darn truck couldn’t do this. 


And better double up on security for the Halloween parade tonight and NYC Marathon on Sunday.


Well, as they say:

“Better late than never!”


And so it is with our nation’s borders.


As the President tries to erect a border wall and to restrict visas from countries that have not put in the necessary screening security, certain lawmakers and liberal judges keep blocking these actions. 


They don’t want to discriminate against anyone, which I agree is a noble cause. 


However, as every news station was reporting again tonight, the terrorist in NY today was shouting in Arabic that G-d is great!


This was not an innocent vehicular accident. 


There ARE people out there that want to kill us and inflict serious harm on our country. 


To those people that continue to fight rational, reasonable security measures to protect our homeland and our citizens, I say to you:

You have blood on your hands!


And unfortunately, we can rest assured that our enemies are planning plenty more to come in their incessant attacks on the West (may G-d have mercy on us).


It is time for the people of this country to demand security…to insist on a border wall…to assert our right to restrict visas to those countries that won’t ensure proper screening procedures. 


How long will we wait–how much blood will be spilled–before we stop playing politics with national and homeland security! 😉

Nuke Fear Turning To Action?

No Nukes.jpeg

What sane person would not be afraid of the incredibly destructive power of nukes (and other weapons of mass destruction)?


Currently, there are about 15,000 either stockpiled or poised to strike around the world. 


Enough deadly weapons to kill the entire planet!


After a frightening series of 5 nukes tests since 2006 plus 18 technologically progressive ballistic missiles tests over the last 6 months, things are escalating after new sanctions imposed to try to contain the threat–with North Korea rattling it’s nuclear arsenal with a shrill threat of attack moving to “physical action” and the U.S. shooting back “fire and fury,
” 


As to further North Korean mad progress, it was reported that they are developing a powerful new H-bomb with immense destructive power, especially towards our density killing fields:


– If such a weapon would strike, G-d forbid, Washington D.C., it could mean 500,000 dead and another 900,000 injured–let alone what this would mean in terms of a destructive decapitation to the very functioning and continuity of our government and country. 


– Even worse fatalities would occur should it strike our financial capital, New York City, with estimates of 1.7 million dead. 


Hence, the news that this is no joking matter anymore (as if it really ever was). 


Fears typically first get expressed in rhetoric, but then with greater and ever potent means for them to become reality, the risks increase for them to actually make the horrific leap. 


What happens next with the ever menacing dangers from rogue Axis of Evil nations, North Korea and Iran–and will we ever feel and be safe again, absent any meaningful social progress while they continue to absolutely and speedily advance their ever more deadly weapons programs and the means to deliver them, first class. ;-0

2 Jobs Are Better Than 1

2 For 1

So this is a funny story that my friend reminded me (honestly, I had almost completely forgotten about it)…


We were in college (business school) looking for our first real corporate jobs for the Summer. 


With G-d’s blessing, I ended up with 2 nice offers.


But my good friend didn’t have a job.


So I offered one to him.


I was still a kid…what did I know!


I told one company that I accepted and the other company that I had a friend that was interested (of course, I would vouch for him). 


So on day 1 of the Summer job, my friend shows up there in the World Trade Center on the 99th floor (yeah, this is before 9/11 took the whole place down).


The corporate folks talked about it for 5 minutes and said he could stay.


Voila now we both had summer jobs!


Honestly, I can’t believe we ever had the chutzpah, but in those days people helped each other out more. 


2 4 1 and 1 4 All. 


And that’s how we both got started in the NY business world. 😉
