Gov. Andrew Cuomo gets on his soap box again, repeating the same old, same old, then goes off the rails and makes little sense as he goes into the aftermath of the untimely and overwhelming death of George Floyd. Governor Cuomo does not say a lot that I agree with, however, his assessment of the video being “… it is horrendous, horrendous, it is frightening and it perverts everything you believe about this country” is a statement that every American/New Yorker can honestly say his assessment is 100% correct. But then he turns into his political self, invokes his Daddy’s 1984 speech about a Tale of Two City’s that talks about the “inherent injustice” in society. Andrew M. Cuomo has spent most of his adult life in “public” service, serving as his father’s advisor, with a stint as an ADA in Manhattan, founding the state’s Housing Enterprise for the Less Privileged (HELP) in 1986, in 1993 he was assistant secretary of HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development) and became Secretary of HUD in 1997 and served until 2001. In 2002 in ran for governor, dropped out (after making a controversial comment about then-Governor George Pataki’s lack of leadership) worked in real estate until he ran for and was elected as attorney general in 2006, and governor in 2010. My question to the Governor is simple: You have had ample time and a loud bully pulpit, why haven’t you made this “inherent injustice” that has plagued society for so long, the most important goal of your political career? Instead you have chosen to make curtailing the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and LGBT rights your priority and have left the “inherent injustice” to others to resolve. Are you really that outraged, Governor? I don’t think so, today’s press conference was nothing more than political grandstanding with faux rage.

“We All Failed”: Gov. Cuomo Admits COVID-19 Projection Models “Were All Wrong,” Yet Clings to the Central Planner’s “Pretense of Knowledge”. Great insight into mistakes made by Governor Andrew Cuomo: “”It is wildly pretentious for anyone to assume to know how a population of more than 19 million should cope with a novel pandemic, and especially to assume that the same exact criteria for reopening should be applied to such varying conditions as downtown New York, upstate suburbia, and rural areas.”

Why is it that US Supreme Court Justices appointed by the left never disappoint, yet, some appointed by the right, have us wondering “what are they thinking”?
