Embarrassed to be a member

"As a young Democrat (I'm 25 years old), I am disgusted at this joke called the Queens County Young Democrats (QCYD), which marches in lockstep with Crowley-backed incumbents. Just last week, they pledged to support David Weprin's run for his brother's Assembly seat.

Silverstein had to promise Crowley that such an uprising would not happen again, and that he would shepherd the Young Democrats into the much older Democratic clubs across the county when they outgrew the organization. - City Hall News

Sad, isn't it? Young people who want change, feel there's no alternative, but to join the dark side, and change it from within."

-anonymous Forest Hills Democrat

FHD, you have to admit that the Unisphere and a jackass are the perfect symbols of this group!

Don't feel sorry for these guys - the are poltical foamers, junkies, who love to debate endlessly the fine points of policy, brag that they 'write' bills, parrot their wannabe bosses by making snide remarks about Tony Avella, and claw over each other to get into photo ops with hacks in office.

And for God's sake, do not complain about any politican to them because it will get back to the boss - in exchange for a doggy bone or the like.

Read the article. Some observations:

Costa loves to have his picture taken with Vallone - sooo whats the point in him running if Vallone has picked Mystery Chick to replace Mystery Man to run for the Assembly seat in Astoria?

And while we are on the topic, gays are accepted because the clubhouse has decided they are to be accepted, poor Onorato was eased out cause he never got the message.

As to people of color joining Young Democrats, why of course, that is why they are there - to find new channels - not of change - but to tweed.

Just as long as the Irish are in control you can impress the cast of Avatar as far as they are concerned.

Young Democrates? A farce.

One of the reasons more and more a turning to registering as Independants. If it can happen in Mass. for heavens sake, how long will it take in NYC to wake up? Or are we still stuck in a bygone era dreaming of Al Smith and Robert Kennedy?

To be fair, orange and blue are the colors of the NYC flag. Same colors used in the 1939 World's Fair.

Sort of explains why it might be a different day, but same old shit.

The politicans only select those who walk like them, talk like them, think like them.


Gridlock and drift cause both parties have a stranglehold on power and answers only for the problems of 1964.

Nothing new from that group. They were doing things like that 25 years ago.

The people who get involved with this do it because they want to join the darkside and eventually get the chance to steal from us and the city.
They've come to the conclusion that if you don't have a place at the table, then you're on the menu.
It's just the same old NYC machine politics power struggle between different factions that's been around for almost 200 years or maybe more.
