“Ladies and gentlemen, this nation is in crisis. The social fabric is fraying and it is nearing its breaking point,” he said. “We must stand up to this tyranny once again. Not with muskets the way our founders did. But with our voices and our votes and with the power and example of our action here in New York.”

His agenda, which includes marijuana legalization, gun control measures, and environmental protections, is New York’s Declaration of Independence, Cuomo said.

“We disconnect from the nationalism, and the racism, and the chaos, and the xenophobia, and the misogyny, and the discrimination, and the dissembling of this Washington administration.

Cuomo declares NY independent from federal government

And I welcome their wish for secession. They should immediately order the removal of all federal offices and officers from the State and take over their security, mail service, Coast Guard, Homeland Security and other federal things. They also should begin negotiation with the United States so their banks and other institutions are allowed to do business with us and not be treated as if they were foreign enterprises. The same applies to every business whose HQ is NY…at least for the next six months anyway.

I know, it is just bluster form Cuomo. But just for fun and if I were Trump and there is a government shutdown because of the budget, I would issue an order to close down every Federal office in the state for the duration.

I saw this great comment in Facebook and I need to repeat it here:

There they go, Democrats getting all confederate again.

  1. Well, that’s one way to get AOC and Chucky Schumer out of congress. If all the NY Representatives leave, will we have a Republican house again?

  2. New York and California. The hubris of believing that they are the two most important states in the Union and if they don’t get everything they want they can take their ball and go home.

    1. Actually they think they are the only two states in the union, until election time, then they can’t figure out how any republican gets elected, ever.

  3. Andrew Cuomo: “Ladies and gentlemen, this nation is in crisis. The social fabric is fraying and it is nearing its breaking point…”

    Also Andrew Cuomo (On Conservatives): “Who are they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

    Ok Andy, the social fabric is fraying, and it’s because of liberal hatemongers like yourself.

  4. And… this stands out…
    “His agenda, which includes marijuana legalization, gun control measures…”

    Remember, drugs is a method for the government to control the masses, guns are a way for the masses to control the government. Is it any wonder those who seek unlimited power always push for weaker drug controls and stronger gun controls?

  5. WOW> NO MORE DRAIN on Federal ( taxpayer supplied ) FUNDING! Their so called tax base would instantly become overburdened, not to mention their sanitation system. This could be fun to watch. Bring popcorn!

  6. Don’t worry. Should a Democrat win the presidency in 2020, Andy will be all about using the power of the Federal Government to make everyone fall into line with the Democratic agenda.

  7. I’m old enough to remember when the heated rhetoric of the day was mild disagreement compared to today’s enmity. Well, maybe it’s just poor memory, but that’s what it feels like.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
