Proof that NY is bottom

I defy any of you upstart state pretenders to the crown of the worst state in the union to match this from this twit. "Boston was caused by climate change" so come on, do I hear a potential contender....... I thought not!

To be fair, it sounds like he picked an awkward way to say this type of event is something that may happen more than we're used to. It's not a nice message but I'm afraid it might be true.

As far as NY being the worst, I'll confess I've never been a big fan of NY, but that all changed this week. The support and compassion extended by New Yorkers to MA this week has been awesome, with one of the highlights for me being the attempts by Yankees fans to sing "Sweet Caroline" at Yankee Stadium. It's no secret that we all have differences - be it in sports, politics or whatever - but it's very reassuring to be reminded of our common humanity. Thanks to NY for taking the lead on that.

This Idiot cuomo is at least crazy at worse a megalomaniac.His rant about gun control before his "law" was snuck in looked so much like hitler ranting about the Jews ,I had to look twice. He wants all gun owners to be checked for mental impairment,I believe he would not get through the first stage. He has some serious issues! :rambo2:

Chester, you should post more often, an insightful analogy.

Pacowy, nobody has EVER had an issue with the PEOPLE of NY - It's the self-righteous overbearing nanny-state totalitarian government we all take issue with. MA included!

I personally love the state of NY. It is beautiful. The people of NY are a great bunch. Very resilient to all kinds of disasters. But I have to say your laws and government suck worse that anyplace I have encountered. At least most of the police ( state and local ) I have run into have been very professional and courteous. Probably some of the best I have met. Even in LI and the city.

I'll confess that my early impressions were formed in visits to the old Yankee Stadium (as a Red Sox fan) and to Chinatown, where the stylish street gangs accessorized with wide leather wristbands heavily studded with (outward-facing) roofing nails. Not real hospitable.

Over time I have come to know and appreciate the friendship of many New Yorkers, so I already had largely changed my opinion. Seeing those Yankee fans this week pretty much completed the process.

But speaking of process, aren't the nice people in these states basically getting the govt they vote for? I never worried much about the "self-righteous overbearing nanny-state totalitarian government" in NY because I've never lived there. In MA I'd agree we need a lot more sunshine on the legislature, but unfortunately "none of the above" is not an option at the polls.

Business is plummeting in NYS. A fortune is being spent with Madison Avenue with TV ads to try to turn that around with no success. Once a business leaves it does not come back. Many upper NYS cities have become ghost towns. People who vote for a living outnumber those that work for a living and they are joined by stoopid psuedo - intellectuals, who could not run a lemonade stand. The superiority complex is overwhelming. As Lenin said " Give me a childs mind for 4 years and I have it for life". Wall St can only prop up so much. Well, we have run out of other peoples money.

And that is number 2 in the reasons I give for leaving Maine. Number 1 is weather. The coastal regions are loaded with both of them. Bangor and Ellsworth are booming and people think the whole world is good. Bangor because N. Maine is drying up disappearing, and Ellsworth because of Acadia National Park and its tourist money.
