The guido Congressman is back!

http://www.silive.com/news/2017/09/in_oct_1_announcement_grimm_wi.html#incart_river_home_pop

This could only happen on Staten Island.

The article also reports that Grimm has the support of Guy Molinari, for whom a spaceship was named in the TV series The Expanse. (I say that the most mind-blowing part of the whole series is that in the future, a spaceship will be named after a guido politician from Staten Island.)

American Museum of Natural History racist against indigenous peoples

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/11/museum-natural-history-theodore-roosevelt-statue-protest

Watch the video in the article to see extreme SJWism in action. It’s pretty sickening.

And the most racist part of the entire museum is the statue of Teddy Roosevelt out front, on horseback, flanked by an American Indian in headdress and a half-naked black man wearing primitive African garb.

I fear for the future of this statue.

Note that this protest happened last October before Trump was elected President. It was not in response to Charlottesville or other recent events. But it does demonstrate that the demands to take down statues is not going to end with Confederate stuff.

The purpose of the statue was to show that Teddy Roosevelt was a humanitarian, nobly concerned with the welfare of lesser races. But SJW types believe that it memorializes the belief that Native Americans and blacks are inferior to whites.

The streets are full of dog pee

Just an observation, not saying whether that’s good or bad.

Another journalist reading my blog?

David Marcus, senior contributor to The Federalist, writes in the NY Times about WFAN talk radio being pro-Trump:

New York’s conservatism is not that of Rush Limbaugh — it is Francesian. It’s guys who drive trucks and install air-conditioners saying, “Why can’t I have my say?” On WFAN they do have their say, often in eloquent and impassioned tones.

The air-conditioner installer sounds like Yakov. And from time to time, I’ve mentioned my blue-collar grandfather who was a truck driver.

New York 1911

https://www.moma.org/calendar/exhibitions/3858

This was filmed in 1911, and just shows various live scenes around New York City.

This is what I learned:

1. Ferries are a popular mode of transportation.
2. Lots of men smoking pipes.
3. No one in 1911 would leave home without wearing a hat.
4. For men, a jacket, white shirt, and tie is a nearly universal outfit. Plus a hat.
5. Women don’t wear pants, only skirts or dresses. Plus a hat.
6. Vehicular traffic is a mix of horse-drawn carriages, motorcars, and trolleys. But no one riding any bicycles.
7. There are no traffic lights, no stop signs, no crosswalks, no lane markings. The streets look like scary chaos.
8. There are elevated trains where today none exist. (well, I already knew that, but it was still cool to see them.)

Attention liberals: your doorman voted for Trump

There are probably a lot of liberal elite types living in Manhattan who think they don’t know anyone who voted for Trump, but that’s because they haven’t bothered to know anything about their doormen and the other blue collar whites they encounter every day.

People who read my blog know that the prole whites in New York City love Donald Trump.

Town and Country Magazine interviewed a doorman who voted for Trump:

I wouldn’t imagine that many of the people in the building you work at are Trump supporters. Do any of them know you voted for him?

That’s why I don’t want my name used. I wasn’t going into work with my “Make America Great Again” hat. Though there’s a few guys—a few of the tenants, and almost all of the workers—who support Trump.

Note that he said that “almost all” of the workers in the building voted for Trump.

And if the guy driving your taxi or limo is white, then like your doorman and building maintenance workers, he probably voted for Trump. From the Hollywood Reporter:

Don’t confuse limousine liberals with limousine drivers.

It can be hard to find a Trump supporter in liberal New York, but one cabbie fawned over his “businessman” prowess, and a chauffeur passing by the Trump International expressed unapologetic fervor for the GOP candidate. After saying he’d vote for Trump, the driver screamed, “Make America great again!” before gunning his limo up Central Park West.

My advice for Trump is to stop it with the tax cuts for the rich and getting rid of government support for healthcare, and start doing stuff for the blue collar whites who supported you.

16 Handles review

A self-serve frozen yogurt place where you pay by the ounce. There are several of these in Manhattan and there’s even one in Williamsburg so it must be at least semi-hip.

I chose the pistachio flavored frozen yogurt. It was bland, icy, non-smooth and non-creamy. I could barely detect any nutty pistachio flavor. The pistachio ice cream they serve at cheap Chinese restaurants is vastly superior.

However, they also have a toppings bar. I added strawberries, blueberries, and chocolate chips. The fruit was fresh and high quality. The toppings disguised the fact that base itself is pretty bad.

My modest-sized cup cost $5. For Manhattan, not an extreme price.

Hawaiian sushi

Just had a Hawaiian sushi salad, technically called Poké. Very delicious. Supposedly very trendy right now. You proles in flyover country are missing out on some great stuff.

However, I do feel that eating raw fish too often is asking for trouble.
