FEW WEEKS LEFT BEFORE BLOOMERG IS OUT

News

That translates to one less day every day and once the new NYC Mayor takes office, Bill de Blasio will have two months to plan his first budget.

One he gets sworn in, his first challenge is retroactive pay increases from public sector unions that could cost New Yorkers around $5 billion.

There's stop-and-frisk, a Bloomberg-era police tactic which led to racial profiling of young black and Latino men, then there are the campaign platforms like income inequality, jobs... etc.

Dump Trump Again

Attraction

NBC is once again strongly being urged to dump Donald Trump. This time from a planned Saturday Night Live program. Many are wondering why give publicity to a someone who spews division and negative energy?

Unfortunately, NBC has the dubious record of propping up media hound dogs, which turn out to be less than upstanding American role models. We wonder if NBC will pay attention to Latinos because we do not recall many Hispanic celebrities launching their careers on SNL. We all know that actions speak louder than words.
