Santa’s Not Coming to ‘El Scrooge’ Bloomberg's Town

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

T'was two weeks before Christmas and the voices were loud: “Now you can't have an accident in Mike Bloomberg's town!”

The screaming from Canarsie, the Lower East Side, Flushing, Riverdale, Sunnyside, Harlem, the South Bronx, Cambria Heights, Toede Hill, El Barrio, Melrose, Brownsville, and Washington Heights reached the North Pole in practically no time.   

This was all beause of a new New York City plan that would force a motorist whose car caught fire — or was involved in an "incident with injuries" — to pay $490. If the vehicle catches on fire, but has zero injuries, the cost to the owner drops to $415. And if the motorist is involved in any other vehicle incident, but with no injuries, it would still cost $365.

Will Six Latinos Be Amigos or a Minority Pain for NY Senate Dems?

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

One crucial point has been lost in the hoopla of the Republicans recapturing the title of 'Ringmasters of the Circus’ by a 32-30 majority. It is that for the first time in New York State history, there will be six Latino senators serving within the 62-member legislative body.

The number six by itself is actually insignificant. However, if these six Democrats – four Puerto Ricans and two Dominicans – unite on any one issue, they could collectively become a royal pain for the embarrassed and scrambling Democrats.

The Gov Debate Was Not Worth the Attention of These New Yorkers

Monday, October 18, 2010

It may have been a seven-ring circus for a lot of other folks, but for the residents of the Robert Fulton Terrace complex at 530-540 East 169th Street and Third Avenue in The Bronx, the only televised 2010 gubernatorial debate was not important enough to warrant 90 minutes out of their evening.

Loud-Mouthed Homophobes Have Made Gay Violence Acceptable for Too Many

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Most people know that violence usually progresses from verbal abuse to physical abuse. We have no evidence of a direct connection between those accused of the crime and the biggest loudmouth homophobe in the state. However, it's probably more than a coincidence that Rubén Díaz’ hateful diatribes found a fertile place in the mushy brains of these cowards in the Bronx.

Bullhorn: Gerson Borrero Asks What's Wrong with a Little Crazy?

Monday, September 20, 2010

Have we all gone loco in the media? Whether we like it or not Carl Paladino received 62.09% of the primary votes casted by Republicans on September 14th.  The more widely known Rick Lazio, the presumed “sane” candidate received only 37.91% of Republican votes. Call me nuts, but as much as it may sicken us, we should acknowledge that Carl Paladino’s in-your-face ways, his candid vocabulary, political incorrectness and even his racist tinge may connect and reflect millions of New York State voters.


Bullhorn: Term Limits Are Part of the Solution

Thursday, September 09, 2010

If we lend credence to recent polls then voters in New York are set to punish one of the most dysfunctional state legislatures in the nation. September 14 is the first shot the electorate gets to settle the score with those that shamed us by turning Albany into a circus. And yet when one peruses how many in the Senate or Assembly are facing opposition from within their own parties, reality sets in.
