Nobody's doing it


NY Post 

The fiercely competitive primary races for mayor are not galvanizing voters to rush early to the polls, according to the city Board of Elections.

Voters have the option to cast ballots during nine days of early voting offered at more than 100 polling sites ahead of next Tuesday’s primary election.

Through the first four days of early voting, more than 64,200 voters cast ballots in the first citywide ranked choice primary election.

There are more than 3.6 million active registered Democrats and 500,000 Republicans eligible to vote in the primary races for mayor and other offices — or more than 4.1 million voters combined.

That means less than 2 percent of eligible primary voters have cast ballots thus far.

The real metric would be how this compares to previous early voting years. But we've only enacted early voting recently, so there's not much data.

Also wondering how many people are voting by mail instead, since COVID concerns are still in the back of most people's minds.

Remember what George Carlin said: ❝If you vote, you have no right to complain. I know, people like to twist that around and say that if you DON'T vote, you have no right to complain.❞

Only those who are smart enough (and, deprogrammed enough!) do NOT vote. Because, the entire voting racket was DESIGNED (from inception) to fail its ever languishing subjects. It's a system of depraved, taxpayer-funded elitism so that the ruling class will always have position (in their 'ALL PAY and NO WORK,' government salaries) without ever bothering to work, show up, tell the truth, or provide any pretense of public service that leads by actual example. Stop birthing your own monsters, 'SHEEPLE': You are only reinforcing the complete hastening of your powerless demise!

❝Voting gives consent to profound, political criminals to continue to fleece all of you politically indoctrinated 'SHEEPLE' like human cattle——ALL the way to the bloody red gates of the abattoir. You DO NOT have to be livestock for criminals and archaic, party-machine-failed cults AND government-entrenched Mafia crime family rings. Nobody ever CHANGED the MAFIA——by JOINING IT!❞ ——Anonymous

❝Voting has become a farce, if indeed it was ever anything else. By voting, the people decide only which of the oligarchs pre-selected for them as viable candidates will wield the whip used to flog them and will command the legion of willing accomplices who perpetrate the countless violations of the people's natural rights.❞ ―—Robert Higgs

❝Voting is not an act of political freedom. It is an act of political conformity. Those who refuse to vote are not expressing silence. They are screaming in the politician's ear: 'You do not represent me. This is not a process in which my voice matters. I do not believe you.'❞ —―Wendy McElroy

❝The political system, as many Bernie Sanders supporters are about to discover, is immune to reform. The only effective resistance will be achieved through acts of sustained, mass civil disobedience. the Democrats, like the Republicans, have no intention of halting the assault on our civil liberties, the expansion of imperial wars, the coddling of Wall Street, the destruction of the ecosystem by the fossil fuel industry and the impoverishment of workers. As long as the Democrats and the Republicans remain in power, we are doomed.❞ ——Chris Hedges

❝The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth, or to evade truth——not to reveal it.❞ ——John Kenneth Galbraith

❝The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way——and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.❞ ——Frank Zappa

❝It’s ridiculous to talk about freedom in a society dominated by huge corporations. What kind of freedom is there inside a corporation? They’re totalitarian institutions——you take orders from above, and maybe give them to people below you. There’s about as much freedom as under Stalinism.❞ ——Noam Chomsky

And, JUST when I thought that this 'Wacky-Racket' of an ancient Babylonian 'Race for Dummies' couldn't get any worse, I SEE that former Governor David Paterson just endorsed -wanna be' autocrat/plutocrat, Eric Adams, who has repeatedly lied so much about his Brooklyn living arrangements (replete with ON CAMERA crocodile tears), that a polygraph sleeve should be strapped to his arms at ALL times——and, especially whenever he moves his lips!

So, if you think that this bogus, third rate 'Mayoralty of MENDACITY'sideshow can't get any worse, just picture the image of: The (ACTUAL) Blind (Paterson)——Leading the 'SELECTIVELY' and 'OCCASIONALLY' Blind (Adams)——and, now, as always——TONE DEAF, TO BOOT!

FINALLY, the REAL 'Pledge of Allegiance' that is recited by ALL politicians (NOT public servants), to their corporate owners, who in turn pledge it right back to their property when they BOTH exhort: 'Don't Blow MY Scam——And, I Won't Blow YOURS!'

I wouldn't believe Litle Miss 'Occasionally Coherent'—even if her forked, slimy, sleazy DemonRat TONGUE was notarized! In fact, believing anything said by a politician is akin (and, tantamount) to believing in all religion itself (a/k/a The FAITH Business), both of which strain all earthly credibility, like nothing else. And, the public be damned!

We're going to get stuck with another wack job for mayor.

Hopefully people had enough bullshit and will elect Sliwa.
People are so mad about all the crime, chaos, cops with hands tied, and prison reform they are not even complaining about noise & fireworks this year.
Every Hispanic, Chinese and bodega person I know is voting for Sliwa.
Why does deBlasio hate white people so much, did his father beat his brains in?
I'm spending $5000 on fireworks, food & booze this year, screw both COVID and this SOB bastard communist. Big party.

The brainwashed college kids & black vote is the problem, they all want free stuff, free rent, no laws, universal indemnity, and show up to vote like armys for it..
NYC wont survive another white middle class hating communist progressive mayor.
Crime here is currently worst then San Paulo Brazil or some Central American shithole now. At least those people can have guns to defend themselves.
The criminals are robbing & stabbing people in broad daylight right in front of cameras, they don't give a dam. They know at worst its a ride + one hour at central booking then release back to streets with a notice to "dis-appear" court date they throw away.

Homeless people to get $1,250 a month ?
They will buy booze & drugs and become an even bigger problem.
Spend whoever is left on lottery & scratch tickets.

I see people in the grocery stores, 4 out of 5 times they are black.
Go straight to the ATM machine take out $100, buy cigarettes and blow the rest on 5 foot ribbons of lottery scratch tickets.
Then pull out a NY State EBT card and buy junk food and some grocery's.

How is it they always get into late model expensive SUVs as I drive a 1991 blazer with 250K miles after rent, utility's and food ?
