De Blasio jobs prediction is full of crap

From the Observer:

Nearly everyone noticed the lack of detail in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s State of the City proposal to create 100,000 “good-paying jobs”—and it appears that’s because it’s simply an extension of what the city’s mayoral-controlled Economic Development Corporation has done for the past 15 years.

The jobs proposal was the centerpiece of the State of the City address de Blasio delivered at the Apollo Theater in Harlem last Monday night. De Blasio vowed his policies would produce 100,000 positions over 10 years in a variety of sectors throughout the city, with salaries ranging anywhere from $50,000 to $75,000 a year or more.

The mayor promised work in film and TV, technology, life sciences and “advanced manufacturing,” though declined to offer much in the way of an explanation of how the city would generate these jobs.

“This new addition, this new focus on creating more and more good-paying jobs, this will be the new frontline in keeping New York City affordable,” he said.

For the mayor’s emphasis on what a “new” and ambitious undertaking this is, a 2016 report from the New York City Industrial Development Agency, a public benefit corporation that the EDC runs, credited its combination of tax incentives and bond financing with the creation and preservation of approximately 146,000 jobs since 2002. That would average roughly 10,428 jobs a year.

This would suggest that the mayor’s plan for 100,000 jobs between Fiscal Year 2018 and Fiscal Year 2028 is merely a projection of a pattern of growth the IDA and EDC established over the past decade and a half.

Just like president Donald Rump.
Their job predictions rely on a gypsy's crystal ball.
Some balls....eh? And a lots of dopes believe Der Wilhelm.....the dope from Park Slope and Der Donald Fuhrer.
These jobs are gone and won't come back.
If you choose to believe the two masters of the hand job....you are masturbating into the wind!

Because it's NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

We do not have a “fake news” issue that dictator wanna be Trump keeps saying to discredit the media and make Trump Media his only state run media to give him free rein to discredit truth & science and oppose all opposition against him (certainly sounds like a dictatorship in the making) while the Republicans do whatever the hell they want to hurt this country and it’s people while making the 1% the rulers of the world. NO, the major issue is the BULLSHIT spilling out of politicians mouths like Trump and our own Mayor deBlasio and trying to be passed off as real while as usual not focusing on the REAL issues at hand, corrupt politicians who want free rein to do whatever the hell they want and be damn to the people, up know, the folks tat these clowns work for.

So called “fake news” was an invention of Trump and his cronies so that they can say whatever lies and bullshit they want without any type of checks and balances that the a FREE PRESS provides or in plain terms for you so-called “American patriots” that voted for this dangerous clown Trump, a little something called the 1st amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Politicians like Trump and deBlasio NEED to be called out on their bullshit and their lies.

Promises promises reelection bid!
Still see the tale of two cities.
No transparency as of yet.
Just corrupt and where are the protests to this?
Trump just got in and protests all over. Shall we succeed as a people or still remain divided.
For eight years I did not protest. But what I did go is vote. That is my voice! Markey out and I just could not vote Hillary in...part two of eight years of Obama. Giving Trump a chance. I did not have anymore money in my pocket during the eight years and Deblasio is taxing me like crazy. Well hopefully someone will ruin against him. Trump with the promise of jobs and prosperity.

The powerful political vested interests are out to sink Avella because he's too honest...uh...compared to the rest of the scurvy lot!

Government can't make jobs.

Any government job will only be paid more than they would ever pay in taxes.

Government gives incentives for people to hire. That comes from the budget all of us taxpayers are funding.

Jobs in the entertainment and film industry have been shown not to increase local hiring significantly, certainly not in the better paying jobs. I think that was highlighted in this blog a few years ago.

The only way DeBlasio can 'make jobs' is to:
1. cut taxes for everyone
2. cut regulations that make having a business in the city prohibitive
3. stay out of the way!

and for the love of God:

STOP SPENDING MONEY YOU/WE DON'T HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me figure out de Faustionomics here.

His solution for equitable urban living is to create living wage salaried jobs in 10 years. So working people currently struggling to afford to rent and apt. and pay bills and food with their meager and modest salaries now will have to keep worrying about their livelihood and the specter of real estate market speculation/fabrication looms over their collective heads will have to wait till this fairy tale universal studio/disneyland theme park opens to be able to afford living in this fucked up city.

If Mayor Big Slow wants to truly help, which his phony fauxgressive giant smelly ass won't, he can tell his avaricious REBNY overlords to set aside some of their vacant condos in their luxury slum towers for all those living in squalor in rat infested buildings and cluster sites, in hotels, and even in buildings in towns where they have generational roots in that are about to be displaced.

Avella 2017.

He did not mention public schools, the kids died under ACS supervision, and the homeless catastrophe. So to him these are non-issues.

Everyone's shiny crystal ball seems to predict a second term for 'CRIMES WITHOUT CRIMINALS' perp, Bill de Blasio—but that's never going to happen. Why? Because, de Blasio was a 'DEFAULT' candidate in the first place, who really should have finished in fourth or fifth place during the 2013 mayoralty, BUT FOR THE FACT that a tired Giuliani retread like Joe Lhota on the Republican side, and Czarina Christine Quinn and Anthony Weiner on the DemonRat side made a mockery of the entire election process that devalued all honesty itself! (Weiner really could have—and, SHOULD have—made a great comeback, except that he willfully sabotaged himself, whilst proving how mentally ill AND sext-ually addicted he was—to ruinous effect!)

As for Tony 'Avaricious' Avella, please stop saying that he is 'too honest' for the mayoralty when he has never stopped lying, cheating and stealing—easier than he breathes—just like everyone else in the entrenched business of taxation without representation! Stop birthing your own monsters, 'SHEEPLE!'

What Avella needs is to control his OCD impulses to stick his big snout underground to find the next lucrative truffle nugget, I mean city or state pension plan, to add to his exclusionary, cradle-to-grave collection (right now he's got more pension plans than Michael Phelps has Gold Medals!)!

But, de Blasio is so egregious, corrupt and dishonest that I can easily see a non-politician, outsider like Bo Dietl score the same, by-default chance at the mayoralty over which Donald Trump climbed to his 'shocking' presidential victory, which wasn't shocking at all (given the openly practiced election fraud perpetrated by the entirely corrupt-and-criminal DNC, not to mention the willful stealing of all votes for BERNIE SANDERS—who should have been our 45th President, before AMBUSH from within his own party prevailed!)!

Because, when the two-party-machine-failed system doesn't produce any pretense of honest, ethical, inclusionary, NOT FOR SALE leadership (that leads by example), then the default candidate will ALWAYS be the spoiler (regardless of whether said candidate is qualified or not). For further proof, just ask hustler Christine Quinn—2013's monstrously failed mayoral candidate, and former pal of kleptocratic predator Mike Bloomberg (more commonly known as the 'Girl with the Golden Rump'—because she is now completely roasted to a crisp)!

In the end, the only way to avoid all 'default' and 'spoiler' candidates is to finally produce REAL and HONEST leadership that leads by example, followed by the complete enforcement of 'Power to the People,' and never 'Power to the Party'—the party-machine-failed system is DOA (besides, no one needs to belong to a feudal party system in order to vote in THIS, the second decade of the 21st century)! After all, Babylon ended more than 5,000 years ago—but, cradle-to-gravers like Tony Avella are STILL haven't gotten the memo!

To Joe Moretti a two-part question:

A. What, specifically, in eight years did Obama do for you? And,

B. What do you think Hillary would have done for you under Obama's blueprint for the next eight years?

Might I remind you that doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. Did you want more of the same?

If you are really so unhappy or afraid of a dictatorship under President Trump, you can always take a train to Canada and permanently relocate. Prime Minister Trudeau will welcome you with open arms.

Otherwise sit tight and give President Trump a chance to prove himself or watch him fall on his nose. It's your decision.

----------------------------------

No president does any one thing specifically for just one person to make their lives better, I have said that many times, be it Regan or Clinton, Republican or Democrat, BUT it is the overall effect of many decisions made by a president. Personally my life really does not change no matter who is in office, but the country as a whole does and that is the issue. Obama and if Clinton was president would not have put a person who hates the EPA and would like to eliminate it to run it, like Trump did. The EPA is a very important agency that can make a big difference to all of us in regards to health. Putting an idiot like Rick Perry to head an agency (and an important one) that Perry stated during the election that he would eliminated, well, that is moronic. In fact all of Trumps picks to cabinets (billionaires) were totally irresponsible picks. So while my personal life does not change, overall, our lives as a whole changes with such poor decisions.

Give him a chance, this is not the fucking lottery here or a new HBO show. THIS IS REALITY. You are in the spotlight from day 1 and you are tested from Day 1, not given a fucking chance.

And any American should be worried about a dictatorship, though chances are slim of that happening in such a huge country, it still is something to be concerned about, especially if one, like many Republicans like to claim, are "proud patriotic Americans". That goes completely against the grain.

Attention: ALL PATRIOTIC AMERICAN CITIZENS WHO ARE FED UP AND DISGUSTED WITH ALL DISGRACED, un-AMERICAN, anti-AMERICAN, POLITICALLY FAILED LEADERSHIP THAT HAS NEVER LED BY HONEST, ETHICAL, INCLUSIONARY, NOT FOR SALE EXAMPLE:

Alas, rank-and-file Democrats (read, DemonRats!), are doing a HORRENDOUS job of understanding the DONALD J. TRUMP phenomenon. In fact, it is APPALLING how isolated these two groups STILL are from one another; how these 'DISGRACED-and-DERELICT' publicly electeds can share a country with tens of millions of TRUMP voters, without ever talking to a SINGLE ONE of them about their worldview, is STAGGERING, and beyond all reason!

Hence, there is a reason why BERNIE SANDERS continues to tell people (both before, DURING and after the election), that TRUMP wasn’t elected because of stupidity or racism, but nobody’s listening to the messenger, much less the message to which he dutifully points.

Because, TRUMP, like SANDERS (and like ALL progressives who are worth their mettle), is an anti-globalist. He opposes the way multinational corporations and banks have used legislation, war, and predatory trade deals to subvert the needs of the nation to powerful elites who are not limited by, or loyal to it. One can not understand the TRUMP movement without understanding globalism and the anti-globalization movement, and most, if not ALL DemonRats refuse to listen to their subjects (We the People), as they now OPENLY engage in taxation without representation with a vengeful impunity that is unprecedented, to date!

After all, anti-globalization was the crux of TRUMP'S entire campaign in the first place, and most liberals are still squealing about racism and sexism (used as diverting factors) that cemented his election. This is a 'KNOWINGLY FALSE' falsehood, and the rank and file left will be unable to mount any meaningful grassroots counteroffensive until all truth, fact, evidence and proof finally prevails.

Tragically, I seriously doubt that any and all of the hyperventilating DemonRats who are breathlessly gasping that TRUMP is the next Adolf Hitler have taken a moment to reflect on the fact that Hitler himself was not exactly the posterboy for non-interventionism. TRUMP has been advocating non-interventionism so extensively that some critics have been accusing him of isolationism, which, if you haven’t figured it out yet, is the exact opposite of trying to conquer the world and make everyone look like a superhero!

Non-interventionism happens to be an essential part of both the progressive and anti-globalist movements. Hence, if anyone is in support of America’s policy of military interventionism and world-policing, then that person or persons are not progressive at all, but rather the very definition of a war hawk like Clinton and the Bush dynasty (of epic, humanitarian-and-ecological fail)!
