Republican, Democrat, blah blah blah. These labels are meaningless. These are the power hungry class. That's how we should view them - a bunch of dudes who want more power for themselves.

I might point out that BOTH, Rudy Giuliani AND Greg David are JERKS!!!!

Any questions about Stop and Frisk? How about NYPD spying on Muslims and underaged children?

Say word: A question from Greg David about inequality?!! (and OF COURSE this means inequality of opportunity. The jackal that referred to "equality of oiutcome" is a straw-man-slinging slickster.)

Folks, we are chipping away at the nonsense, lie by lie. Let's keep it up.

How does Greg David "moderate" a debate among 5 candidates when he has publicly come out in support of one (Lohta)? He's a journalism professor? What is he teaching?

In Switzerland they have vocational education and a 4% youth unemployment rate.

Minimum wage cowards and greedy bastards. Separate min wage for different ages? FU, idiots.

Never forget when this guy said 200k is not a lot of money....

Why bother with this? I guess whose the most anti-poor/working person!

This is a great question for the ownership society bunch...
Would the candidates be in favor of a minmum wage of 20.00 - 30.00 dollars in favor of dismantling safety net programs?

Let me guess what the debate was about: LET"S DO MORE FOR BUSINESS.

The end.
