so much for my inlaws.

We don't. You are a pox on humanity. Go live in Kansnebrahoma or wherever, where you are free to worship your corporate Jesus in megachurches, buy as many guns as you want to fight off your imaginary enemies, hate gays to your heart's content, and live in true Freedom, despite your poor grasp on how Medicare and Social Security, and well, anything having to do with the government. By all means LEAVE NY STATE.

And he's polling almost 40 points ahead of his likely GOP opponent for governor. I can see why he'd feel safe to express himself bluntly.
 
2014-01-21 12:24:08 AM  
Well, he did get Sean Hannity to vow he'd leave the state. Probably right after he gets water-boarded.

I'm not even going to bother to look. I'm guessing NYC is like every other big city in America and actually ends up subsidizing the rural parts of the state.

Many Upstaters think downstate is a tax-sucking black hole, not that there wasn't something in the 1970's that would cement that in their minds.

Culturally, for sure, but people breed in the suburbs and country to supply cities their population. I remember in the past seeing that NYC costs so much to run, the city absorbs tax dollars from the whole region. But that might have been using federal budget numbers.

I'm from Ulster, that tommahawk-looking county two up on the western side of the Hudson River from your red/blue line.

Obama won here 63/36 (and Gary Johnson won more than the Green).

Here's the real New York state voting record in the 2012 election.

As you'll note, large cities like Buffalo, Rochester, Plattsburgh, Oswego, Kingston, Newburgh, Poughkeepsie and Albany all went Obama. The only real oddity was Onieta county, home of Utica/Rome, which was heavily Romney.

Oh, and if you think thats it's just Presidential times?

Here's the terrible-for-dems 2010 Gubenatorial race...

i.imgur.com

The counties out west where where the Republican, Carl Paladino, is from and practically ruled like a feudal lord. Still not exactly an overwhelming win. That was 61/34. (The gray counties are just places that hadn't finalized their results when they stopped updating the maps.)

That's 2-5% less, and they do tend to get kinda MDK-streaky. It's hard to be that big a murderer with a semi-automatic rifle or dad's old squirrel rifle. Add in fast firing guns and suddenly you can go from last week's NM shooting to Sandy Hook rather fast.

But personally I don't like this fight, it's just a distraction from the real issue: republicans don't mind child murder if they get to line their pockets with NRA gold.

Not living in New York, I don't keep track of specific NY politicians' stances on specific issues.  You could be right.  There are plenty of horrible people who aren't Conservatives(TM) too.  Generally speaking, since we tend to define the terms Liberal(TM) and Conservative(TM) (at least in the social context, as opposed to economics) by the degree to which a person is willing to accept as equal people different than themselves, the more socially liberal a person is, the less horrible they tend to be.  However, it's certainly not dispositive, and since Democrats often aren't very liberal (if at all), that's even less so.

All that said...

Actually, the map is depicting the borders of a proposed secession of "Upstate" versus "The City" by c*ntrag extraordinare Peter Vallone Jr. (You might know him from such stunningly smart legislation such as banning fluoride in water and making it a felony to possess permanent markers for persons under 21)

Entertaining the notion even slightly? NYC provides Upstate an assload of tax revenue and Upstate provides NYC with most of its food and pretty much all of its drinking water. Conclusion: talk of secession is pure stupid. Let us never speak of it again.
