News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. Nov. 6, 2013: After 12 years of New Yorkers living like serfs in some medieval city, we have a REAL Mayor, one who named his son Dante as only an Italian would.
Last night, November 5, 2013, was a glorious evening for any New Yorker, and American who still values the idea of democracy and fairness.
If the super-rich can BUY, even being Mayor of New York City, we are in big, big trouble. And make no mistake about it, Michael Bloomberg BOUGHT the election three times in a row. Not only with supposedly legal spending in the hundreds of millions, more than any candidate for any office ever in the history of the United States per voter, but many millions more that he gave to various NYC groups to BUY their support under the guise of his foundation.
Today, Michael Bloomberg is irrelevant. Thank God. He and his brutal out of touch police department.
We have a REAL Mayor once again. We don’t have to thank God, we can thank ourselves.
It was euphoric Tuesday evening at the 15th Street armory in Brooklyn when Bill de Blasio took the stage. It was like political darkness had been purged from our city and light came pouring in along with the cheers. HALLELUJAH. De Blasio won by an unprecedented amount – almost 50% – a complete ejection of Bloomberg and lackeys like Joe Lhota.
Now Bill de Blasio has two months to prepare to impress us all as the next Mayor of New York City, and to meet the daunting challenge in the footsteps of Fiorello LaGuardia to become the greatest Italian American Mayor of New York City, or in other words the Ferule Mayor of New York City.
We will find out.
