It’s not just a few Upper West Siders who are fleeing New York: Moving companies say they’re swamped with calls from residents looking to ditch the city — even though the COVID crisis has waned. One likely reason: The virus was but the last straw; New Yorkers are fed up with the shootings and lootings, homelessness on the streets, sub-par online schools, sky-high taxes and the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On Sunday, The Post highlighted families who’ve given up on the Upper West Side — now teeming with junkies, the homeless, convicts and others — and are headed for greener pastures outside Gotham.

Wow, the COVID crisis has waned? Somebody tell de Blasio and Cuomo. Not surprising though, who would want to live there?

Quite frankly I would not want to live in NYC on a good day. And please leave your wacked out liberal views and voting habits with you cross the city limit boundry. Or better yet just relocate in NY and leave the rest of the states alone.

We're seeing WAY too many New York license plates lately in, of all places, eastern Oklahoma. PLEASE don't come here with your Marxist voting records. There are copper heads, water moccasins, scorpions, tarantulas, wild boars, brown panthers (for Rio Lindans, that would be the actual animal), coyotes, bobcats, builders who can't get building materials, tornadoes, 80 mile an hour straight line winds, plenty of Walmartians, gravel roads that destroy sedan tires in a month, poor soil, and lots of people with missing teeth. It's Third World, worse than the BLM riots. Go somewhere else like Dallas. They're as pretentious as Los Angeles only with cowboy boots and barbecue sauce. You'll love Dallas.

Dont forget what they do when they get to a free state and get ahold of a gun for the first time. It makes them even MORE obnoxious and the first thing they want to do is point it at someone. Their definition of manhood seems to involve who can be the most pushy and intimidating.

No voting rights in red states for refuges from hellhole blue states. Not until they pass a 100-question quiz on the Constitution and history of the Founding Fathers. Maybe, that’s the diabolical plan by the left to change the voting map for all the red states.

Yea, leaving the city only because the damage and violence is hitting close to their homes. So now they want to leave. Leave the city where THEY voted these communists into power. Now they want to move to a conservative city where morals, values and respect for authority are a standard. The only thing they will bring to their new homes are their sick liberal agenda and a vote for what they left behind. Got it....

Pennsylvania is also getting flooded with cars full of shady characters with NY and NJ plates. Get out of here, you are not welcome. Compassion and Social Justice be damned. We have lifestyles that we are proud of. I wish prominent figures like Hannity would pack up and get out. That would send a message to the entire country that New York is not the "in" place to be. Let Cuomo and Big Bird pay for their damages out of their own pockets.

Who wants to live in a place where you can't walk down the street to the corner store for a paper, without getting mugged or assaulted by homeless beggars? Especially at night. Having to stay inside, behind locked doors, with fear of venturing outside, is no way to live. Even more so when you can't legally protect yourself with a gun! New York is now trying to sue the NRA out of business. That will surely encourage law-abiding citizens to remain (/s) Criminals shrug and say ''so what?''

After it became clear that the very contagious Chinese COVID virus had targeted New York City first, New York City residents with the wherewithal to do so pretty much left New York City, while some of them stayed in nearby cities and towns where they had residences, a big majority headed for Florida where New York City residents usually turn up to escape the cold winter months. Others traveled all over the USA and that’s why people are seeing so many New York license plates in far away places, and why the China COVID virus was able to rapidly spread across the USA.

#6, please don't tell them to move to Dallas! Leftists have already ruined Dallas. We had to sell our house at a substantial loss 10 years ago to get away from their policies that turned our neighborhood into a homeless camp. We're in the suburbs, but they're spilling over and ruining the whole county and DFW Metroplex now. And don't even get me started on what they've done to Houston, San Antonio and (shudder!) Austin. Quit trying to "turn Texas blue." Just stay in your own garbage holes and turn blue yourselves. As for NYC, I'm glad my two young nieces got to see it a few years ago before DeBlasio and Cuomo destroyed it. I lived nearby in the late '80s and remember having to step over all the homeless bums in the reeking Grand Central Station. A drug dealer approached me on 42nd St. shaking a pill bottle like a maraca in broad daylight and loudly asking, "Hey, dude, wanna buy some crack?!" not even caring if any cops overheard. I thought then that Dinkins was the worst mayor in history, but at least he had the excuse of inheriting a sewer and only making it worse. DeBlasio inherited a successful city that Giuliani miraculously rescued and in the space of only a few short years, turned it back into a hellhole. Dinkins taught him well. The student has surpassed the master.

Anything of note happen this week? I’ve actually been distracted by things. I hear Joe Biden has selected the next President of the United States. Very nice of him to do it for us; saves us the trouble of a nomination contest and such. I hear the going rate for food tasters has gone up sharply over the last 72 hours. Funny, with so many restaurants closed down you’d think there’d be a lot of them available.

“It’s hard to fathom, but it has been 36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket,” Maureen Dowd wrote in the New York Times on Sunday. At least she got those first four words right — it is indeed hard to fathom because it’s not true. “Either @Tim Kaine and I had a very vivid shared hallucination four years ago or Maureen had too much pot brownie before writing her column,” tweeted Hillary Clinton, who might have won the election had she shown such wit four years earlier.

In fact, on Tuesday, as soon as I heard that Kamala Harris would be the Democratic vice presidential candidate, the first thing I did was call Joe Biden to let him know.

Pennsylvania asks court to allow

Election Day due to Postal Service delays
23 replies
Posted by MissMolly 8/15/2020 4:31:10 AM Post Reply
To be clear, the request here isn’t to let Pennsylvania voters mail ballots after polls close. They need to be postmarked before then. The request is to have the court extend the deadline for when ballots need to be received in order to be counted, which by law is 8 p.m. on Election Day. Right now, the Postal Service recommends that ballots be mailed a full week before Election Day, i.e. October 27, in order to ensure that they’re received on time. But Pennsylvania law allows voters to *apply* for a ballot up until October 27. That means many voters won’t even have ballots

San Francisco-based power provider PG&E Corp said on Friday it has started rotating power outages at the direction of California's grid operator, impacting about 200,000 to 250,000 customers at a time, given the strain on the power grid during the statewide heatwave. The company said in a statement it is not calling a public safety power shut-off, which is conducted during specific high fire threat conditions. PG&E said its outages, directed by the California Independent System Operator, are expected to impact up to 250,000 customers at a time in rotations of one hour each.

Despite the best-friend bond Joe Biden touts with former President Obama, tensions have lingered between the two statesmen over their vastly different governing styles, according to a Politico report. To start, a number of anonymously sourced quotes from Obama leaked out throughout the 2020 Biden campaign where the former president allegedly expressed doubts about his former running mates’ fitness for office. “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f--k things up,” one Democrat who spoke to the former president recalled him saying. When lamenting his own diminishing relationship with the current Democratic electorate, particularly in Iowa, Obama reportedly told one 2020 candidate: “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”

The Biden-Harris ticket is upside down. That’s our first reaction to the news that Vice President Biden has chosen the junior senator from California, Kamala Harris, to be his running mate. That makes a ticket where the vice presidential candidate seems, at least to us, to be of a more presidential personality than the elder statesman from Delaware. The more typical formulation is the young, ambitious executive type at the top of the ticket. To see how odd this ticket really looks, imagine that in 2008 the ticket had been Biden-Obama. It would have gone down in flames. The trailblazing personality, the creative spirit, belonged to the younger man.

Bill Gates this week added more flame to the fire in the ongoing debate over the usage of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, claiming that using the drug to treat the coronavirus carries with it the risk of "severe side effects" and arguing that medical officials should instead pursue the numerous "good therapeutic drugs" currently in development. Yet there is at present little evidence that "severe side effects" are common in COVID-19 patients who take hydroxychloroquine, with the majority of reported adverse events being relatively mild and only a small fraction of reported effects so far being dangerous and/or fatal.

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

It has become almost conventional wisdom that if Joseph Biden is elected President this November he will only serve one term and not seek reelection in 2024. Given Biden's age, this makes intuitive sense. At 77, he is already the oldest person ever to be a major party candidate for President. Although his doctor says he's in good health for a man his age, there is no guarantee that he will remain so for another four years, let alone eight. This reality framed Biden's decision about choosing a running mate. Because of his age, Biden needed to choose somebody who
