$11 billion? That's enough to rent 3 apartments on the upper east side.

Gulper Eel: James!: And then some complaints about soccer.

And? The proposed break for the soccer stadium is bigger than the fashion industry break...if there's a subsidy in the city that's begging to be killed it should be that one. This should have been an easy call for the mayor. Instead he whargarbled about carriage horses.

You don't like the soccer stadium therefore DeBlasio is bad also horses.

Gulper Eel: James!: Gulper Eel: Wooly Bully: Is there any evidence to support this claim?

But of course.

The financial industry bought every other major politician in the tri-state area. Both parties. Yes, even Saint Cory Booker. They are nothing if not thorough.

Donated to is never the same as bought.


You know that, but the part of your brain that could express it was short circuited by "DEM-CRAT BAD!" before it got to your typing fingers.

Read again more slowly those two words "Both" and "parties". Not that there are a lot of Republican elected officials in the area, but Wall Street has made sure to grab a piece of Chris Christie too. They made sure Al D'Amato played ball when he was chairman of the Senate banking committee back in the day. It's what they do.

I will be a little more impressed if DeBlasio shoots down the proposed sweetheart deal for the soccer stadium in the Bronx, which should have been a slam-dunk hell-no but there it lingers.

Both sides are bad you say?  And then some complaints about soccer.

My, they sound concerned.

They don't want corporate welfare to stop. They just want an excuse to do it without feeling like they screw people over.  And "See? Dems do it too! Dems do it too!" allows them to feel better when they do it.

No, it's not.

I like how conservatives have basically given up even trying. You morons are just ridin' out this long, slow death of relevance at this point, aren't you?

I know the headline is a troll, but let's be honest, it's not okay when anyone does it.
