Every item in his speech is an example of what not to do

I just watched his speech, and turned it off after the gun part. Here are some highlights:

-ban private sale or transfer of firearms without a NICS check

-ban internet purchase of ammunition

-run NICS on every ammunition purchase

-ban "high capacity" magazines

-ban "assault" rifles

Here are some other items on his agenda:

-raise minimum wage

-pass law "equalizing" women's pay. That means lawsuits against employers after a women agrees to a contract if she finds out anyone else is paid more than her.

-spend $1 billion dollars over the next 5 years on "affordable" housing

-Promote casinos in upstate New York, but outlaw them in downstate New York. His goal is to get gamblers from NYC to vacation upstate.

-Make tax free zones for companies spun out of university research. The state gets to pick the winners and losers.

and on and on and on.....

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
