Can’t be worse than the what NYC managed to put in office (twice) now. As its stands things are getting so bad here, we’re on the road towards losing a seat in Congress (YAY!). It’s unlikely that he’s a critical race theory monger, but anything possible. Can’t find anything about him other than that he’s a Democrat and that he’s most famous for advocating a UBI or Universal Basic Income. It’s basically giving $1000 per month to every adult. Expensive. About 4.5 Trillion per year. It’s not a stupid but an incredibly naive idea. It’s good in theory but dangerous… Read more »

UBI

If Yang tries to use UBI in New York then it will destroy New York since it’s expensive and NYC is already doing bad.

NY?, GA?, CALIF?

First he was supposedly a Californian.

Then he carpetbagged to Georgia, to illegally vote _there_ in the upcoming U.S. Senate elections.

And now he’s calling himself a NEW YORKER and he’s ready to be our mayor?

Next thing you know he’ll be off to Eretz Yisrael to run for Prime Minister there!

Can you spell “sleazy opportunist”?

Andrew Yang would make an excellent mayor. Smart, unpretentious, straight-shooter, pragmatist. I know, these qualities are a turn-off for some people. They prefer a narcissistic man with no personal morals, history of bankruptcies and unethical business practices to be in the executive office. To each his own.

Andrew Yang is a Mentch who thinks outside the box. We could use more of that in place of reactionary tribalism. If a Democrat is going to win either way, he’s not a bad choice.

"Like a bar code"

“Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated – like a bar code they can download to their phone? There ought to be.”

said the very same Andrew Yang last week.

Say, why bother with barcodes? Yellow stars are much easier, and time-tested.

Some “decent, straight-shooting fellow” we’ve got here.

our great country is almost over. its time to stop the madness. hopefully our great president will bring in the military and stay put. if G-D FORBID the elections wont declare Trump our president , democracy is over and we will never vote again. they will mandate vaccine shots then yellow stars and eventually the gas chambers . its so easy to see this , time for everyone to open their eyes. i hope im wrong, but i know im not. history repeats itself all the time unless we stop it .

An endorsement for Eric Adams!
Eric Adams has been borough president of Brooklyn for years now, has a close history with the Jewish communities, was a police officer – will respect them and give them the funding they need, actually is a New Yorker, and is very moderate (at least in today’s standards) compared to Yang who is a full on socialist!
