Free College in New York State…….Well Not Really

leave a comment »

New York is set to become the first state in the union to offer free college tuition. Thanks to socialist governor Andrew Cuomo, tuition at state and city colleges will now be free to those students who come from families making less than $100k per year.  The threshold will rise to $125,000 per year in three years. 

It’s been reported that upwards of 940,000 families will benefit as a result. 

So let’s think about this for a minute. If the average family has 2.4 children – that means 2,256,000 children can ultimately take advantage of this “free” tuition. 

If they all decide to go to a state school and the average tuition cost is $6470/year, the total cost per year for all these children will be over $14 billion. 

At the end of four years – this free tuition will cost over $58 billion per family. 

$58 billion. 

So please explain to me how this is “free” tuition. 
Are the professors no longer getting paid and now volunteering their time?  Are the utility companies now providing free gas and electric to the schools? Are the security officers now working for free?  

You see free does not mean free unless of course you’re Andrew Cuomo or Bernie Sanders. Then free means free – just as long other people are going to be paying for it.

Can You Say Hypocrite!!!!!!

leave a comment »

New York City mayor Bill deBlasio sat down today with members of the Russian band Pussy Riot to discuss prison conditions in New York City.
Apparently deBlasio is an admirer of the band and “what they do.” (Whatever that may be.)
deBlasio had told reporters that, “They are speaking out against oppression, and against the denial of the right of free speech.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but
wasn’t it just last month that New York governor Andrew Cuomo said that Republican Conservatives have no place in the state of New York? Perhaps deBlasio should sit down with the governor.

Also, earlier this week, deBlasio had announced that he would not be marching in New York City’s St. Patricks Day Parade because the organizers of the parade exclude homosexuals. (In reality, organizers have never denied homosexuals from marching, just from carrying pro gay banners.) Yet deBlasio has added two Islamic holidays to the NYC school system.
It might surprise him to learn that under Islamic (Shari’ah) law, homosexuality is a sin and considered a crime against God.

You see Mr. deBlasio, Muslims don’t just “deny” homosexuals the right to march in their parades, they kill them for being gay.

Can you say hypocrite?

This is What Happens When We Rush To Appease

with 2 comments

Well now we see what happens when the idiots in power rush to appease the masses and further their own causes and political careers.
Every law enforcement officer, active and retired, come this March, will be in violation of the new gun laws in New York State.
Every law enforcement officer (including the governors security detail) carrying a fifteen round magazine could technically be arrested.
This is why we don’t enact bills and pass laws because of knee jerk reactions. Has everyone lost their minds? These are the people who represent us? Fools!
There was no reason for this.

No More Gun Violence in New York (Starting Tomorrow)

with one comment

Oh what a great day!
Once the New York State Senate votes today to pass some of the nations strictest gun laws, there’ll be no more gun violence in New York.
No more armed robberies, no more shootings, no more crimes of any kind involving guns in New York. Tomorrow should be a very quiet, peaceful day.

Isn’t it funny how it’s easier to pass laws effecting law abiding citizens than it is to face the very real problem of illegal gun possession and go after the criminals?
Idiots!!!!!
Talk about selling false hope.
