I remember the dread of exiting the Queens-Midtown tunnel into Manhattan from Long Island before I left for Rhode Island in the early 1990s.

Would we make the first traffic light, or get stuck at a red light and be subjected to the squeegee men?

The squeegee men would either spray something on...

De Blasio Big Gulp

As the clock was winding down on 2013, pundits were openly wondering if the newly elected mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, would actually be worse in championing nanny-statism than his predecessor.  He’s off to a pretty good start.

De Blasio has partaken in a very public feud with actor...

Fun times start at midnight in New York City, and I’m not talking just about the dropping of ball.

Socialist at heart Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s first act will be to ban the horse drawn carriages that are one of the symbols of the tourist experience at Central Park.

High taxes. Crime. Too hot in summer, too cold in winter. Democrats. Too expensive. Public sector unions which control everything. Want me to continue?

Thanks to reader Alex who, after seeing yesterdays post about Manhattan Mini Storage advertising, sent this photo and wrote:

I took a picture of this billboard last New Years from our cruise ship. The five of us (all activist Republicans/conservatives) were heartily amused.

They have a very clever ad guy.

to be anti-Republican in New York, because almost everyone who disagrees with you already has moved to Texas.

We’ve seen these subway ads taking shots at Republicans before.  Thanks to reader Thomas who took this photo and writes:

Spotted on the #1 train en route to my office. MMS ads are common eyesores on the train but this is the first to mention Mitt + open endorsement of Obama’s re-election.

Previous iterations took shots at M.Bachmann, Tea Partiers, Christians, Perry. I’m sure their 3rd rate copywriter is already hard at work on Newt and Cain.

Just a snapshot what it’s like living in an outwardly cosmopolitan city with an openly provincial hatred of Republicans.
