Being from Brooklyn and black (I’m mixed but look as black as anyone chilling on Livingston Ave) I couldn’t be a republican. Credit the union public school teachers in NYC for that, they told us that no person of color should be a republican. Next time a public school teacher tells you how valuable they are, mention the last sentence.So I am not affiliated with any party. That makes primary time a lonely time for me.
This morning I was listening to The Wizard (VanDenblurb) on AM 1300 W.Gerald.D.Jennings where he was commending Commisso Jr. for wanting to wean the city from the landfill. For those who do not know VanDenblurb, he has a caste system for credibility. So far I think this is how it goes:1. White
5. Over 50
11. Mollusks with pseudo pods
I mention this because LEBRON first mentioned it back in 2009. VanDenblurb did not mention anything then.
So for the record, Commisso is dead right on but Lebron said it first when it wasn’t popular; When the Mayor was looking to scam his way into another 4 years by using a landfill deal to bury the problem. Sort of like Paula Mahan in Colonie except she did it with a private firm and stole the palm greasing thunder from The Tanfather.
I've been told countless times that being a democrat today is a matter of doing nothing and coming up with no new ideas. Wait until a republican comes up with new ideas first and steal it from them and sell them as your own. Maybe too harsh to say that’s what Commisso Jr, after all, commonsense usually has no political affiliation.
