This is a must-read article for those who think that talking a lot about your leftist opinions makes you qualified for an important executive position. It’s by a “social justice attorney” who worked for the City of New York. She didn’t like Mayor Mike Bloomberg on philosophical grounds (not far left enough for her, I guess), but was pleasantly surprised at how efficient and effective he was at running the city and dealing with problems such as homelessness. You see, he was a businessman and actually knew how to manage people and run things (sound familiar?)
But then came the far-left Mayor Bill DeBlasio (whom she admits she voted for.) The well-oiled system Bloomberg built quickly fell to pieces under the weight of mismanagement, arrogance, corrupt and greedy political appointees, poor communications, pointless and burdensome new rules and regulations, massive fraud, lack of oversight and outright incompetence. Homelessness increased even as the budget to fight it doubled. Trying to point out the problems got her fired – while she was on family leave (liberal compassion, ladies and gentlemen!)
Read it all, but here’s the moral: “I was shocked to discover that I actually preferred Michael Bloomberg’s very corporate City Hall to Bill de Blasio’s failed socialist utopia. Who wouldn’t?”
I have no idea, but New Yorkers just reelected de Blasio in a landslide (ironically, if New York suffered a real landslide, he'd be totally unprepared to deal with it), and now they’re poised to send a wet-behind-the-ears socialist utopian to DC to fight Trump’s successes at lowering taxes, creating jobs and more than doubling GDP growth. I guess some people must really like failure and incompetence. I just wish they’d quit voting to inflict it on the rest of us.
