I was raised in upstate. The countryside is beautiful. Rolling hills, lots of hardwood trees, rivers and streams, lots of Fall colors. It’s the Dem politics that ruined it for everyone. Now no jobs, bad schools, and once-Catholic cities have been turned into Muslim due to Obama policies. I will never go back and instead will keep my good memories.

Sometimes I think they really are just a bunch of communist at heart who want it to all be destroyed.

Cuomo is just having an, "Oh no, that sucks." moment for optics.

Its either that, or black mail, or an impossibly low IQ.

It's so hard to tell.

There are a lot of them but the vast majority of people are dumbasses easily influenced by other people. Most people just do what they are told. I asked a stripper while out with a group of guys if she thought Marxism or capitalism was better (to prove a point to my friend). She said Marxism was better because she cares about poor people. Remember, she gets to vote and her vote is worth the same as you or I.

The public has been brainwashed.

Yes. For sure. I agree majority of (leftist*) voters are totally ignorant.

It's the politicans that I'm skeptical of. Not the unsuspecting public that couldn't tell you the difference between a house representative and a senator.

Does Cuomo know what hes doing? Does Whitmer? Is AOC playing dumb, aka cute and relatable, to appeal to a voter demographic, like strippers?

If I had to choose, I'd say they are all well aware of what they are doing. Democrats are masters of playing dumb and naive to the bitter end.

Zekk 7 points ago +7 / -0

Always the commie go to: handouts. They don't want a functioning economy. They want to give you handouts. They want you dependent.

He doesn't understand what motivates people. Open up the economy and lower the crime rate. It's not complicated.

Closing everything down and emptying the prisons is playing just how they knew it would. The higher crime rates are a feature, not a bug. It's what they want. "I'll buy you a drink" is just pretend - it's just a coverup.

I wonder what they are going to next...

CousinEddie 6 points ago +6 / -0

I’ve got a strong 6 figure income as well as my peer group. Covid has changed our entire viewpoint of money.

When you’re not going out constantly and are doing awesome stuff at home, and working from home, your bank account balance is very full. All the time.

Personally I’ll never return to a city lifestyle of bars and restaurants. After having none for 8 months and seeing how much free cash I have saved, it seems insane we even did that stuff regularly to begin with.

If we’re seeing it at the 6 figure level, those above us are feeling it even more. The cities are placing bets their ass literally cannot cash if they are wrong. The cosmopolitan bullshit living may very well be over for many Americans.

Due to Covid we’ve upgraded our homes to provide the things we used to go out and pay for. There is no reason to go out anymore or live in a big city. We learned to cook, we bought amazing grills and knives, we bought pools, built decks, and bought Boats.

There’s no need for a city anymore if we continue to WFH and most of us are WFH through 2021 with many going full time

The richest likely don't vote Dem. They're a tiny class of people who statistically vote Republican.

They're the people who don't make their money through income and only pay capital gains tax rates which equates to only a 20% maximum on long term gains.

It's the professional class that make most of their salary through income that's getting squeezed and is leaving New York.

It's true, but they're still the statistical minority. The top 1% are 57% Republican-leaning and 36% Democrat-leaning.

12
freefolk 12 points ago +12 / -0

It is a pyramid scheme after all. The 1% rely on an influx of new people to scam to keep themselves at the top of the pyramid. What does it matter if the quality of life below them suffers? Paying more in taxes to keep the scheme going is like paying an atm fee. It's slightly inconvenient. That's why they keep voting Democrat. They're happy with the system. It's the middle class that suffers. The only reason the rich would leave is for the same reason I avoid Walmart. It's inconvenient to wear a face mask and stand in line waiting to go in,especially if there's an alternative store or Amazon available.

They re NOT morons. They know EXACTLY what they are doing. United we stand, divided we fall. The Democrats (led by Pelosi & Schumer) seek to destroy America by any means possible. Their entire mission is to divide and confuse us in order to destabilize and destroy. Stay home, wear a mask, kneel, submit, destroy the economy, infect our population with illnesses and disease, send covid infected patients into nursing homes, cause suicide and depression. It does not matter how fucked up it is - the more confusing it is the better the plan. They seek to cause confusion, death, and destruction. We have entered into a New World War even though it is undeclared. We are not only fighting the enemy from within (Democrats) but also we are fighting a war against external enemies (China, the EU, NATO, NOKO, Iran, and Russia).

Definitely a Texan thing, possibly descended from a Mexican thing. I think it's great. It's SO boring to do Turkey in December, so close after Thanksgiving.

Of course, Trumpsgiving is still my favorite holiday. Mostly because it's a floating holiday, and can happen many times in a year, even in a month, depending on the rising salt levels of the left.

Always trot out this stat when people make that asinine remark:

The top 20% pay 89% of income taxes despite making 50% of the income. In Canada the top 20% pay only 58% of the income despite making 50% of the income.

And about 85% of all federal revenues come from income taxes.

The wealthy in America pay for fucking everything and people are brainwashed to demonize them anyhow.

Top 20% isn't even wealthy. If be surprised if it met the traditional definition of middle class (significant ownership in a home, reliable car for all working members of the household, significant savings toward children's education, on track for retirement)

Edit: looked it up and the 80th percentile in household income is $130k. Higher than I thought, probably a decent number for the floor on middle class for a family of 4 in a metro area or a single person in the largest cities.

Blondes in swimsuits from CA used to be considered bimbos.

AOC thinks like a bimbo and her crackling little girls voice just makes her so unattractive and you know she isn't smart after the first sentence. And yet, she won another primary.

Unfortunately, most of the people physically leaving are still working for a company legally headquartered in NYC, and therefore still paying NYC payroll tax.

I'm in a similar situation with my company in a different city. I moved out of my Democrat-run shithole a year ago, but I still pay 3% payroll tax even though I and none of my coworkers have physically been there in months.

Look at how beholden the New York government is to those rich people. By basing its policies on the presence of those rich people, it can't absorb the shortfall when they leave.

They'll try and blame Republicans for sure, just like they have for George Floyd's death despite it happening in a Democrat city in a Democrat state with a Democrat run police force. The cognitive dissonance is astounding when it comes to stuff like this.

Treat yourself to some idiocy next time someone blames "Republicans" for the failures they had absolutely no part of... ask them what the Republicans actually did? Literally any policy they name just counter with "that was Democrats, I asked what the Republicans did"

As more of the big financial jobs go remote, states like NY will fall apart. High taxes and shitty weather are a bad combination. States like NY are built on the basis of jobs. When those jobs leave there's nothing to entice people to move in.

COVID has been a big kick in the nuts for these states because unless companies start calling their workers back into the office, then they're free to move out. I think lots of companies will find it's cheaper to let their employees stay home and will just leave them there.

Literally all of the traditional talking-point advantages of “living in a city” have been rendered limp by virus hysteria.

Major sporting events at the stadium? Nope.

Big concerts at the arena? Nope.

Standup at the comedy club? Nope.

Fun dancing and drinks nightlife? Nope.

Bustling metro atmosphere? Nope.

Diverse mix of cultures? Nope. No one’s mixing these days.

Neat view from your downtown high rise office? Nope. Crappy view from your apartment as you work from home.

There are no longer any advantages to offset the well-known downsides of living in a major city anymore.

So retards on Rochester subreddit talked as if people who worked and retired in NY shouldn't be allowed to move out of state because they somehow owe it to the State they made their money in to stay and keep paying the outrageous taxes which plague the entire state. I called them out and told them if I paid NY taxes my entire working career, you can bet your ass I'm moving somewhere like Wyoming that doesn't have State taxes when I retire.

If I could find good steady virtual work I would move to the country and check my blue state baggage at the door. I just can't get my girlfriend to agree because she isn't white and think everyone out there is racist and always stares at her. Maybe they do but I've never noticed.

I went through Madison a couple years ago. Was a bit lost and ended up downtown. Parties everywhere. Cops everywhere. I thought man this is a super party town. Then I realized badgers football had just let out after a win. I got a ways out of town (Highway 19 maybe) because I wasn't interested in that. It was dark and the rain had been pissing down all day all the way from eastern Ohio and I just wanted to get out of there an get a hotel. Pretty funny once i figured out what was going on. Had some cheese curds and heard some people talking football. It was pretty cool but I was on my out the next morning.

Ideally it’s best to work in a city for a few years for that salary figure on paper and the experience and once you’re mid level head out to wherever and find local jobs or remote work

New York, especially New York Sh*tty, just entered the inevitable socialist economic death spiral.

The 1% were already complaining about being taxed at a rate that amounts to soft "slavery" and economic abuse. Widespread BLM (burning, looting, and mayhem) and the Kung Flu disaster were the final straw that convinced them to abandon the sinking ship that is New York Sh*tty.

Some moved out to other places in New York such as the Hamptons. Some left the state completely and are never coming back.

Big Fredo is delusional if he thinks wealthy New Yorkers will come back.

Would you spend more of your money (after you lost much of it in the Kung Flu stock crash) to move back to a state/city that will use you as a tax ATM to pay for corrupt crap?

Would you move to a place plagued with free-bail rules, BLM crime, and Kung Flu mismanagement?

Heck no.

New York is toast. The geese that laid the golden eggs finally flew the coop after years of mistreatment. As the old saying goes: "Socialism works great until you run out of other people's money."

If they move to Puerto Rico they become exempt from US federal income tax and Puerto Rico has a bunch of tax incentives to encourage the rich to move to Puerto Rico. I don't blame them for leaving.

True, but those exemptions are not, I repeat not true for people born here. Anyone who makes over $50K a year, owns a business, works for the Federal government, or has investments gets fucked by the IRS the same as anyone stateside. You have to parachute in to qualify for those sweetheart tax breaks.

1
james43552352345 1 point ago +1 / -0

Not true. There are specific rules you have to follow and you have to apply to get the exemption but once you get qualified and understand what you need to do then you will definitely qualify. I've researched a lot into it. It is more for wealthy people but it is wellllll worth it considering how high taxes are in the USA. They have this program because they want rich people to live there, spend money there, hire people there and so on. It is a good program.

You are really going to pedesplain something to a small business owner who actually lives here? Do you think my CPA and I have not turned over every stone? Trust me, unless you are the Governor's nephew, you are NOT getting that exemption, no matter what the vague and open-to-bureaucratic-interpretation regulation may say. Not if your last name is Pérez or Quiñones or García and your birth certificate says Puerto Rico.

Good point, hate sounding like an alarmist, but I’d have to get out stat. When 1% pays 50% of all taxes in a state and then they’re still the bad guy, not worth it. Feel bad for the honest working class folks and business owners who will suffer from all this. Crime will skyrocket, there’s a GD BLM “mural” on the esteemed 5th Ave. for God’s sake just to rub their local failures in Trump’s face. Your club sounds like a nice haven though, glad you’ve got that. I’m looking to join a neighboring club right near my house in the next couple months. I think I can swindle a good deal on initially joining if not dues too just because they’ve probably suffered quite a bit these past few months since closing down and basically just serving take out to members and having children bike up to demand milkshakes. Idk though, seems like a lot of old money “country club Republicans” so they may be too prideful to give a discount, unlike other clubs in town who are practically giving away memberships right now.

Imagine New York without any wealth. The rich move out. Suddenly there is no one who can eat at fancy restaurants or drink at upscale clubs, no one staying in high class hotels or using premium business facilities, no tax dollars coming in to swell the cities coffers. Property values plummet as everyone rushes to pull their investments.

It would not take long for all that to filter down to the middle class who would also leave, and then the working class would find there are no jobs or business opportunities and they leave too, leaving only criminals and welfare dependants.
