Open letter to NY Governor Andrew Cuomo

Dear Governor Cuomo,

First, a little musical accompaniment...


Now that we're establishing the mood,you are recently quoted as saying

Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

You might not believe this but we kinda got the message a while back. You really don't like conservatives. You really don't like businesses either. And you really hate guns, no really, we get it, we really do. We don't feel safe in NYC and we try to avoid it any way we can. We don't feel safe in our persons and effects, we don't feel safe economically, we don't feel it's safe for our families or our friends.

It's a real shame for upstaters, the what? 5 or 6 farmers you have left and the hunting industry you used to be famed for. As far as your right to life, your attitudes were made clear when your cops beat the living snot out of those Occupy Wall Street kids and mass incarcerated them in deplorable conditions without charge. And we know what you are doing to black youth on the streets right now, every single day. We can't even count the constitutional violations you countenance before breakfast. Yeah we'll appreciate your "racial diversity via baton and taser" from afar thank you very much.

As far as gays go, and I know this is gonna feel rough going down (bad pun), if you promise not to tell anybody, the rest of us have gays too. I know it's gonna take some getting used to, the idea that you don't OWN GAYNESS, that you don't have a MONOPOLY on gays and you don't exactly represent them anymore than you do pelicans but it's a simple fact. For whatever reason or significance, God saw fit that gays be distributed ALL OVER THIS PLANET. It's one of the only reasons why, in this online era, there are still things such as shopping malls, karaoke bars and dinner theater ALL ACROSS THE USA FROM ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS SEA TO ABSOLUTELY FABULOUSLY SHINING SEA HONEY.

But if NY wants to go fullbore (another bad pun) "liberal", which you really aren't even that these days, you are simply a plutocracy, then it's my feeling to allow you to do so with abandon. See your "Wall Street" isn't an asset to us, it's a detriment from your front running the lending rates to your ponzis, pump and dumps and bustouts, your front running markets and your naked short sell manipulations, your central banks and various Bernankes and Krugmans running around like little baron princes, frankly the whole of Manhattan Island could just sink for all we care, we'd be overjoyed from an economics perspective. It really wouldn't change much except for Jersey's air quality might actually improve for once, all the really good parties have been in Brooklyn for the past 20 years so it's not like you risk what remaining ability you have to have fun like real humans are capable of doing. Long Island isn't worth fighting over for anybody who doesn't live there and Queens and the Bronx don't care about you any more than we do. Ditto Shao Lin.

In fact it's hard for us to find anybody that really cares about you outside of your own little Manhattan Island and the global predator corporatist powers who clearly don't care about America. So there you have it. We don't feel safe being there and neither do you and your social peers without private and public armies there to protect you, we really only have one difference and that is that you love your lifestyle meaning YOUR lifestyle not those of your peoples, and we don't. Choking down smog, smelling rotten garbage on the streets, drinking that liquid you people call water, the noise, the lack of sunshine on the street (the thing above the basements, there's no ground floors there, the ground is always a few stories under you), the naked human suffering and gross inequality, your dispositions which are notoriously caustic, see this is not our idea of a good time. Most of us would rather be dipped in shibbit than spend a day there. I'm perfectly willing you let you do your thing as long as you let the rest of us do ours. Take NY, you already rendered it useless for other purposes, sell it, pawn it, keep it as you please. Anything in trade for this one pretense that you represent anybody but yourselves.

Cordially (believe me),

I'm beginning to think the getting a concealed carry permit

is all a ploy to back door register gun owners.

New York City was founded by

New York City was founded by Jesus Christ and them other pilgrims and its Amurica's capital city, to hell with you.

A little substitution...

"Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are."

What I hear:

"Are they these extreme Jews who are running our banks, greedy, anti-state? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme Jews, they have no place in the nation of Germany, because that’s not who the German people are."

Are they asking for a revolution, or what?

Seriously, demonizing around half the state of NY? Not to mention the majority of Americans who don't call themselves New Yorkers (and wouldn't want to).

I really think this is all psy-op brainwashing in preparation for gun-confiscation in NY, CT, and MA. They need the sheeple to go along with the outright civil-war on conservative Americans that they will be rolling-out very soon. So they must convince the masses of uninformed and misinformed zombies that these people "don't belong". They "aren't New Yorkers", etc..

A few people will resist, and they will be labeled "terrorists" faster than you can say "This is CNN", or "Caution, you've entered the no spin zone".

Enter; FEMA Camps, Martial Law, gun/food/etc. confiscation, night raids, foreign troops, ...New World Order...

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

Preparation? It's begun.

NYC is disarmed, high cap mags and other stuff are already illegal and you have to surrender them in CT. People already have to make the decision to comply or hide them. Some are hiding them. That's right now, today, Americans hiding guns from government. All of those people are now criminals in the eyes of the state.

When a house catches fire, the fire starts in one place and spreads. A corner of the house could be on fire but the rest of the house could be fine for the moment. However we still consider it to be a house on fire not a perfectly good house with a small, temporary fire issue.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Having recently moved from CT, last year...

...and I just earlier this month went up there to visit family and friends, I am well aware of the situation in CT.

Most of my friends own at least one firearm, some of them a lot. I asked them (the ones I saw) 'the question'. "Did you register?"

Answer, every one of them: "Yup, we had to. Or they'll come and arrest you and take them."

I told them that is BS. That they are coming anyway, only a matter of time, and that we'll need to fight sooner or later. They all agreed but I could tell they just don't see how soon and how much.

One of my friends has his CCL, and he said that he can keep his mags, as long he doesn't transport them with more than 7 rounds loaded. I told him, "the law says it is illegal, and they will take it and your guns, you are not a lawyer and they are lying to you."

I personally don't know anyone who is hiding their guns. But, I wish I did, and wouldn't say so if I did either.

I was forced to leave because of hurricane Sandy. I had just bought my first AR-15 that August, just a few months before Sandy, then Sandy Hook. Weird.

When I say "preparation" of the minds of the sheeple, I mean for the all-out Martial-Law/SHTF/Civil-War on patriots/constitutional conservatives. It has begun, no doubt, but we have not seen the full implementation yet, not even close.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

Is it alive?

These comments from Cuomo, like Obama's statements about running the country alone, are a test. They are sharp sticks poked into the prone carcass of our constitution.
I am horrified to acknowledge it, but the poking sticks don't seem to be getting any significant reaction.

These guys

are nothing but scared and they should be. About time these soulless monsters feel the sting of their own lash. Keep up the good work.

Cuomo is just a "blip' on the screen...

...and we don't call him "Prince Andrew" for nothing.
He's got a short memory, and a "selective memory" also, choosing to forget WHY his DADDY Mario got booted by the citizens....and Gov.Pataki was voted in.
I belonged to a very powerful union in those days.
We were "instructed" to vote for "KING Mario" back then, by our union reps and "bosses".
They didn't count on the pro-gun element that surrounded them, nor the fact that "we" don't like to be "shoved around", and that's a fact Jack!
Yeah, my buddies and me...all made up our minds to "deep six" that bum, and tell him "TWENTY-THREE SKIDOO"!
The same sentiment was apparent among the voters.
Just like the cockroaches that gotta get "taken care of" by the exterminator in most high rises here, NYers are used to "cleaning house" from time-to-time.
One of the biggest rallies for RON PAUL was at Cornell Univ. in upstate Ithaca,NY.
Rode my arse there, many hours, and remember getting a text message from a good friend that Leon Helm had just died.
Levon called upstate NY (Woodstock) his home...I'd been there helping out at his "midnight rambles" for years.
He loved it there and so do I.
Gerald Celente is making a stand in Kingston...just a stone's throw away...he ain't running...and neither are we.
Don't sell us short....there's a lot of good people here giving it a shot until the SHTF, and we are ready for that also....and we'll take care of "Prince Andrew" when the time comes.

Very passive.

The American people have become extremely passive.
The man at the front of the room is pissing state propaganda all over the audience... and they just take it.

The message is still the same

The condensed edition of this makes its point quite clearly


sounds like sour grapes from

sounds like sour grapes from someone who can't afford to live there without roomates. Spend less time on silly message boards and more time on learing how to be productive in life will cure parts of that.

So tell me something you naked ape

how does it feel to wear no clothes?

maybe you can register that some of us would share an apartment than to spend one instant with you predatory vulgars.

Did it occur to you that we reject you completely and vomit people like you that predate upon our creativity and did it occur to you that you have never been an innovator in your life every single thing you have done is derivative and you traded being a Chilean for being a USA citizen and now you are sorry for all the wrong reasons.

In this case I am speaking pr. Secilianos. E vaya con lo diablo.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Mon Dieu! Sounds like classism...

We shall shield your identity most diligently from your waitress and your bartender.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

I'm an upstate NYker

And I approve this message.

What part of upstate are you from?



Capital District

I'm in the Albany Troy Latham neck of the woods. You?


So sorry for you!!

I moved away from the state 6 years ago. I have a brother in law who lives in Rotterdam though. I visit him from time to time. I live in Wisconsin right now.

the capital district is a painful area for a libertarian...



Are you an upstate new yorker?


I think we have heard a leader say these things before

What happens if we substitute some of the words used in Andrew (Der Fuhrer) Cuomos statement.
Yup, we have heard this type of speech before.

Are they these extreme (genetically not pure) who are (religious Jews), (communists) (not pure Germans) Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme (threat to Germany), they have no place in the (German state), because that’s not who (superior Aryans) are.

Frankly, the best thing that

Frankly, the best thing that could happen is if all the conservatives left New York and moved to Ohio or Florida or some other so called swing state. Then since they hate guns so much, they could pass a law which makes it illegal for anyone to have a gun, including police and armed guards, and we could just sit back and watch the mayhem.
