Barack Obama, our next President

if the homeless voted, who do you think they'd have voted for? someone who redistributes fish caught by others or someone who wants to teach them how to fish?

The homeless plague- December 4, 2012

It hasn’t been a great week for the image of the city’s roving psychos.

The shoeless guy who was gifted with a pair of boots by a sympathetic cop has turned out to be a common chiseler with an apartment & a brace of taxpayer-funded benefits.

But it was a far worse week for NYers who are not roving psychos — in particular, a Queens man who was pushed to his death in front of a Q train by a maniac in the 47th St station.

& it was a frightening time for passengers on the # 6 train last Fri morning between 77th-68th sts. A nearly 6’ tall, white woman in a long off-white coat & densely matted hair (description provided as a public service) abruptly began spewing from mouth & nose. Her ghastly, interminable, long-range discharge (accompanied by cursing) chased riders into the next car the moment we reached the station. I couldn’t wait to get out of the subway at my final stop — ill-fated 47th-49th Street on the Q/N/R line.

But the 1st thing I saw on the sidewalk was a familiar outrage: hustlers hawking “just one penny” for the “homeless.”

3 yrs after cops broke up the phony “United Homeless Organization,” the thieves with their glass bottles are back in force — especially on on 7th Ave bet 48th & 50th.

The punks ply their trade within a few feet of an NYPD observation tower. The cops watching the crowds presumably have better things to do than interrupt the scam taking place right below their noses.

The 2 7th Ave blocks — increasingly also home to CD peddlers who surround tourists & demand $$ if they so much as look at the wares — have begun to resemble the bad, old Times Square.

“Street homelessness” has dropped 26% since ‘05, according to the Dept of Homeless Services, which also boasts that the ratio of street homeless to the overall city population, 1 to 2,506, is among the nation’s lowest.

That’s little comfort to citizens who now fear the sidewalk insane more than conventional muggers. & to a guy who walks several miles every day & rides the subways & buses more than most city bureaucrats do, there are suddenly more terrifying bums out there than I’ve seen in years.

That “homeless” beggars are free to hassle passersby even where cops gather in force speaks to our institutional, political & cultural resistance to facing reality: Maybe we can’t lock them up, but we sure can stop sentimentalizing, romanticizing & enabling them.

My fellow passengers who fled the spewing lady might have been among those I see every day give money to panhandlers only slightly less gruesome — especially those who play “jazz” on an out-of-tune trumpet.

I know, I know: It sounds so fascistic, so lacking in compassion, to deny small change to the suffering. After all, aren’t the shelters as full as they can be & the city’s capacity to deal with the crisis limited by finite resources?

But our compassion ought to be for the vast majority of citizens whose daily routines are warped by deranged, diseased, often violent & occasionally homicidal “homeless” who live on the street for reasons having nothing to do with an “affordable” housing shortage.

Fact: Not all, but many more than a few, are on the street because they like it there &/or because they’re mad, alcoholic &/or drug-addicted. That we can’t lock them up or institutionalize them en masse doesn’t require us to make them into folk heroes.

Of course, their enablers are legion —“advocates,” socialistically inclined lawyers, & media pundits nostalgic for the crack-ridden city of 25 years ago. But it’s time to set aside ideological malarkey in favor of acknowledging truths that are obvious to everyone else.

Name those paying out 8 quarters of dividends now. They must have more faith in the economy than you & money to burn.

Why would people sit on their money. They will just seek other forms of investments.

These adjustments happened with every tax change.

If tax on dividends are of concern, investors will seek stock that pay fewer dividends but have higher growth.

Calm down Chicken Little.

You animal! You're not fit to clean that man's shoes! Why, I remember seeing him charge up San Juan hill carrying his wounded horse on his back and playing "Dixie" on a kazoo a small peasant child had given him in thanks for saving his baby sister from crocodiles... I suppose I've said too much already...

Larry Ellison of Oracle, a big Obama supporter, is personally dodging $50 million in Obama tax hikes by declaring an advance dividend.

They are doing that to avoid the obamacare tax. Do you suppose the cbo will have to reassess it's cost figures for obamacare?

OBAMA in July 2011 : We can raise $1.2 trillion in additional revenues, which could be accomplished without hiking tax rates. It could simply be accomplished by eliminating loopholes, eliminating some deductions and engaging in a tax reform process that could lower rates generally while broadening the base!!

Obama in 2012 rejects what he said in July 2011so I guess like Kerry (he was for it before he was against it) just a typical Liberal!!

Between you & Flack, you can tell you have no business experience.

Actually, if all these corporations prepay two years worth of dividends, it would be a stimulus to the economy.

Watched the whole thing. No nervous breakdown. Rove was being cautious after what happened with Bush before all the Ohio votes were counted.
He was fine and dandy when Obama won regardless.
The New York Times’ John Cassidy was convinced the hurricane secured the win for Obama. He wrote:
“After being behind in the national polls for most of October,[Obama] has now re-established a narrow lead. While there are a number of possible explanations for this turnaround, the most convincing is the simplest: his handling of Sandy has raised his standing, and his poll ratings.”
Reflecting a national trend of the numbers going in Obama’s favor since the hurricane, Obama’s lead on the east coast jumped from 9 to 21 points.
A Pew poll taken before the hurricane showed Romney and Obama neck-and-neck at 47% but the same polling firm had Obama ahead of Romney 48%-45% post-Sandy.
You lose. I win.
So I guess after both candidates and Superpacs collectively spent a couple billion dollars on attack adds, the Hurricane named Sandy is what gave President Obama an edge? I guess that act of God proved President Obama had the ability to act decisively.

Those that watch polls instead of what the candidates were actually doing must have been very surprised on November 6th. The GOP leaders must have learned something or just trying to do a better job at lying to the public. Suddenly, the Hispanic Community isn't a big of a problem as first thought. Higher Revenue isn't the end of the world and Grover Norquist is being called out as a complete DOLT.

Dave, you are just too dense to understand, so why bother trying to explain.
Guys like you who own no stock, receive no dividends, and realize no capital gains are just bystanders who are not even participants in the economy.
So, just collect your government pension and have a nice life.
I understand just fine. You & Flack, on the other hand, don't have a clue.

You two act like no one ever owned stock prior to the Bush tax cuts.
