    CITIES, TOWNS, COUNTIES UNDER THE DEMONCRAPS ARE ANTI BUSINESS, JUST LIKE THIS NYC MAYOR, WHO FAVORS THE LOW LIFERS, AND A STAUNCH ANTI BUSINESS. GOOD LUCK, FOR THIS LADY, WHO IS IN ON AN ADMINISTRATION NOT READY TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE WITH EXTRA, MORE THAN ENOUGH, AND WAY, WAY MORE THAN ENOUGH DOUGH TO RUN / OPEN BUSINESSES. THIS MAYOR IS NO DIFFERENT THAN BERNIE SANDERS WHOSE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL PLATFORM, AGAINST KILLER CLUNKER IS TO TAX 90% CAPITAL GAINS TO THOSE ENTREPRENEURS MAKING TOO MUCH PROFITS, AND TO THOSE FILTHY RICH 1%, WHOSE MILLIONS TO BILLIONS SITTING AROUND OR SOMEWHERE ARE ALL SIMPLY JUST MAKING TOO MUCH INTERESTS OR OTHERS, LIKE DIVIDENDS. THE NATURAL THINKINGS OF THE DEMONCRAPS ARE ALWAYS TO GET ALL WHAT THEY CAN GET LEGALLY IN THE FORM OF HEFTY TAXATIONS FROM RICHY RICH, TO HAND THEM OUT TO THE LIKE OF SO CALLED POOR JOHNNY, WHOSE STATUS OF BEING POOR IS SELF IMPOSED FOR BEING TOO LAZY, HATES TO WAKE UP EARLY TO GO TO WORK, LOVES TO PARTY, SPENDS EBT CARDS FOR BOOZE, SOME GET AWAY BUYING MARIJUANA WITH EBT CARDS ON THE STATES WHERE MARIJUANA IS LEGAL TO BUY. THE FREELOADERS ARE LOSERS, SUCKERS WITH THEIR NEW FOUND WAY OF LIFE MADE THEM MUTE, LIVING DEAD, LIKING WAY TOO MUCH THE STATUS OF WELFARE AMERICA, WHICH OBOBO / THE DEMONCRAPS TRAINED THESE OVER 92MILLION FREELOADERS SUCCESSFULLY WITHOUT A HITCH, NOW READY TO VOTE FOR THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. WHAT A BUMMER, THE SOCIALIST / COMMUNIST DEMONCRAPS VOTED IN POWERS BY THE FREELOADERS ON DESTROYING AMERICA.
