Memorial Day: a time for Queens politicians to shamelessly capitalize on the deaths of American heroes via the buying of political ads in local newspapers under the guise of tributes.
Let's pause to remember the brave men and women who died to preserve democracy... In NYC, "democracy" means the clowns pictured above are practically guaranteed to win whatever office they seek because they either run with a huge built-in monetary advantage or completely unopposed, and newspapers don't question anything they do because they take ads, such as these, out at every opportunity that comes along.
There was a bill introduced in the NYC Council last year which would ban these ads from being paid for with taxpayer money, however, it comes as no surprise that it is stalled in the Committee on Governmental Operations.
Let's contrast this with Iraq:
Here is an American Marine on election day in Iraq. He's holding a ballot. Notice how many names are on it.
Iraq is more democratic today than Queens County is.
God Bless America.
