NEW YORK IS SECOND WORST STATE TO RETIRE
The Democrats in charge of New York are making it into a place that is terrible for individuals to enjoy the golden years. A Bankrate.com study showed that it is the second worst state for people to retire.
It was ranked the absolute dead last in terms of affordability, but scored poorly on other metrics such as culture, crime, weather and wellness. The Democrats are rapidly bleeding the state dry, as they become more radical in their central planning.
“Where to live is probably one of the most personal decisions one can make because it’s not just about preferences, it’s also about the financial considerations that are associated with it,” said Mark Hamrick, who is the senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com.
The only state that ranked even lower on the list than New York this year is Maryland.
FEMALE SOCCER STARS DISRESPECT FLAG, DEMAND MORE MONEY
The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) disrespected their nation’s flag during a gratuitous and profane celebration following their recent gold metal victory.
We congratulation them for winning the gold, but then the women tossed the U.S. Flag to the ground so they could showboat for the cameras. They also drunkenly embarrassed themselves during the public celebration, showing no class and dignity, with Trump-hating lesbian Megan Rapinoe issuing a profanity on live television.
These narcissistic ladies do not seem to understand the basic laws of supply and demand as well. The USWNT is demanding “equal pay” with their male counterparts despite the fact that they bring in far less revenue.
“We want the same money that the men are making, exactly. That’s $5,000 minimum– that’s– that $8,000– bonus if you tie a game, and the $17,625 if you win. We want equal money,” soccer star Rich Nichols told CBS’ 60 Minutes.
Forbes explains that the men’s World Cup in Russia generated revenues in excess of $6 billion, while the Women’s World Cup is only anticipated to garner $131 million in revenue for the four-year cycle 2019-22. The female soccer players actually are paid a larger percentage of the revenue than the male soccer players.
These women are not only ignorant of our nation’s rich history, but also ignorant of basic economics. We will all be better off when their 15 minutes of fame comes to an end.
BILL DE BLASIO’S WAR AGAINST CHARTER SCHOOLS
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is on the war path against charter schools, blaming them for having better educational outcomes than the government-run schools that have failed for generations.
“I am angry about the privatizers. I am sick and tired of these efforts to privatize a precious thing we need — public education. I know we’re not supposed to be saying ‘hate’ — our teachers taught us not to — I hate the privatizers and I want to stop them,” de Blasio said.
The administrators and backers of charter schools are fighting back, pointing out that minority children are well-served by their schools and attacking them hurts their opportunities to achieve.
“While he is busy campaigning in distant states and denouncing Democratic leaders for their lack of ideological purity, charter and district educators will continue to work together to create brighter futures for New York City’s children,” said James Merriman, CEO of the New York City Charter School Center.
“It’s sad to see de Blasio trashing charter schools to advance his political ambitions rather than thinking about the needs of the more than 123,000 children here in New York City — most of them children of color — who attend the charter schools he so reviles,” said Ann Powell, who works as spokeswomen for Success Academy Charter Schools,
De Blasio, the self-proclaimed progressive champion of diversity and equality, is yet again failing miserably at achieving his stated goal of improving the lives of the downtrodden.
