NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Says America ‘Was Never That Great.’ GOP’s Response is Absolutely Perfect.

Published

Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has become an expert of sorts on how to make enemies on both sides of the political spectrum, slowly but surely cementing his place among the most despicable and hated politicians in our nation’s history.

Cuomo recently made a comment that was designed to be a dig at President Trump, stating that America “was never that great,” a statement which then prompted Republicans to strike back with an effective statement of their own.

A one-way bus ticket to Canada.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s political opponents on the right and left seized Thursday on his comment that America “was never that great,” with Republicans buying him a bus ticket to Canada and intra-party rival Cynthia Nixon accusing him of trying and failing to sound like a progressive.

The Democratic governor’s allies, meanwhile, rallied around Cuomo, saying his comment was merely an acknowledgement of the country’s history of racism, sexism and intolerance.

The remark was made Wednesday at a bill signing in Manhattan as the two-term governor was criticizing Republican President Donald Trump and his “Make America Great Again” slogan.

“We’re not going to make America great again – it was never that great” said Cuomo, who is running for a third term this November. “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.”

Cuomo’s staff later said that Cuomo does in fact think America is great, but that he was arguing the country must look forward to greater equality, not backward to a time of less opportunity for many Americans.

Yeah, sorry. Too little, too late.

Bet when those paychecks come in — courtesy of the tax dollars ripped from the pockets of the American people — he thinks America is pretty great. If not, he probably should.

Listen, it’s the “hip” and “cool” thing among folks this day and age to hate on America. Most of the people doing so are young kids who are clueless and have zero experience of what it’s like to live in most other countries around the world. If they possessed said experience they’d likely appreciate what they have here just a little bit more.

If Cuomo doesn’t like it here, he’s willing to stop drawing those taxpayer funded pay checks and mosey on up to Canada — thanks to the GOP’s generosity — and enjoy their big government utopia to the fullest extent.

LeBron James Sponsors Silent After His Tweet Threatening Police Officer’s Life

L.A. Lakers star LeBron James’ sponsors including Nike and Disney have remained silent over the star player’s tweet threatening the life of an Ohio police officer. On Wednesday, James tweeted out a photo of a white Columbus police officer with the caption, “You’re next, #Accountability.” But after suffering a major backlash, the player deleted the tweet and attempted to claim that he deleted it to stop people from “creating more hate” over his message. The explanation for his removal of the tweet did not satisfy many. But regardless of whether James’ reasoning has been accepted by the fans, his sponsors seem unconcerned by his tweet threatening a police officer. Thus far sponsors and partners including Nike, 2K Sports, AT&T, Beats Electronics, Blake Pizza, Coca-Cola, GMC, KIA Motors, Nike, RIMOWA, Upper Deck, State Farm, and Walmart have remained silent over James’ threatening tweet. Not one of James’ sponsors issued a statement about the threatening tweet, including Disney which just finished James movie, Space Jam: A New Legacy. Others though, were outraged by the tweet. Former Major League Baseball player Lenny Dykstra, for one, apologized on behalf of all athletes for James’ tweet. “On behalf of pro athletes, current and former, I apologize for how #LeBronJames just showed his inner Maxine Waters and made a very real, ongoing threat to the life of the officer who quickly acted to prevent a knife attack from becoming worse. Many of us appreciate what LEOs do!” he wrote. https://twitter.com/LennyDykstra/status/1384980974430269440 The National Fraternal Order of Police also slammed James for his attack on police, as well. The FOP said that James, “with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless.” https://twitter.com/GLFOP/status/1384971441825894400 Others were just as offended…

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.
