Sean Hannity To Leave New York
After Andrew Cuomo´s
Anti-Conservative Rant

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Jeffrey Poor

Original Article

Posted By:voxpopuli, 1/21/2014 8:41:25 AM

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

Comments:
excellent news..
on a same note, i can´t wait to leave the Republik of Minnetaxes for South Dakota.. where Governor Goofy keeps his $5,000,000,000 Dayton BrothersTrust Fund..

Here´s hoping he leaves soon. I have to wonder what´s keeping him: his kid in school, the cost of building a studio in Florida, the inconvenience of getting in-studio guests to Florida?

With 2 growing kids, and the hours a week Hannity works, this is a smart move.
WHY pay all that tax to a wasteful government, when he could be saving for his kids?
Rush, Beck and Boortz have left, this makes perfect sense for Hannity.

As a parting shot I wonder if some vindictive New York State Peoples Financial Commissar will find a clever way to levy an exit fee and other punitive measures against Sean, or any other successful person who dares to think that the money that they have rightfully earned by the sweat of their brow actually belongs to them and not the Peoples State Treasury???

With de Blasio as mayor, chances are NYC will return to Dinkins-era crime levels, graffitti, a reversal of all the progress Rudy Giuliani made in cleaning up the liberal mess. The rest of the state has been turned into Appalachia by confiscatory taxes and job-killing liberal policies. Please boycott New York.

Remember you are needed to pay for all those wildly successful programs the libs love. Feel good about losing those nasty capitalists who create jobs.

I suspect that many independents will be leaving NY, along with conservatives. It´s the policies of liberal government and the nastiness of the left that make the state a poor place to live, except for the radical left.

I see the commercials advertising for business to come to NY, offering tax-free incentives for 10 years. I laugh because who would want to invest all that money, knowing that after 10 years you will get soaked by the tax man? Why take a chance and have to deal with the unions too?

#7 - I´m thinking the same thing. NYC crime rates are very very low after 20 years of Giuliani and Bloomberg. However, one thing in NYC favor is that De Blasio appointed Bratton as the NYPD Commissioner and he is the one that originally instituted Compstat and the Broken Windows theory on crime in NYC during his first go around under Guiliani.

Sean´s kids are young--he might stay until they´re out of school; or maybe he´ll go before they get to high school! But, reportedly Sean owns a home and a vacation home on Long Island. Also, didn´t his wife come from the south?

About exit taxes: New York City has a 1% tax that must be paid if you don´t buy another property in the city.

Minnesota billionaire Glen Taylor has made a formal offer to acquire the Star Tribune, a purchase that would add the state’s largest media company to his diverse business empire. Taylor said in an interview Tuesday that he has made a cash offer as an individual without any other investors. He declined to say how much he would pay, but he emphasized that the Star Tribune is the only media company he is pursuing. “I’m interested in this one because it’s a Minnesota paper,” Taylor said.

The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identified the two Saturday. Officials have not released many details about the incident or explained what prompted police to open fire.

Thirteen people were injured, six critically, early Wednesday moirning after an explosion caused a major fire at a grocery store and apartment building on Cedar Ave. in south Minneapolis. No cause has been identified as of yet, said Greg Nelson, supervisor of the Minneapolis Emergency Communications Center, but the building that housed the West Bank Grocery and a mosque is likely a total loss. A police squad car reported the fire at around 8:16 a.m. after seeing the explosion and seeing debris on the street, he said. Flames were shooting 20 feet from the building, officials said. The second and third floor later collapsed. The injured were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and Univesity Hospital.

Federal authorities have obtained confidential documents that shed new light on JPMorgan Chase´s decision to hire the children of China´s ruling elite, securing emails that show how the bank linked one prominent hire to "existing and potential business opportunities" from a Chinese government-run company. The documents, which also include spreadsheets that list the bank´s "track record" for converting hires into business deals, offer the most detailed account yet of JPMorgan´s "Sons and Daughters" hiring program, which has been at the center of a federal bribery investigation for months.

Shavelle Chavez-Nelson spent fewer than four of the past 14 years outside the walls of Minnesota jails or prisons. In that time, he was accused or convicted of at least seven violent crimes. He and Anarae Schunk, a smart 20-year-old college student, met at a bus stop in the summer of 2012, during Nelson’s longest stretch as a free man. He told her he was a hedge fund manager, and despite the disapproval of her family and friends, Schunk dated him for a few months. Those who knew her say she thought she could help him.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
