Alan Alda Meets Benito Mussolini


That describes the demagoguery of my state's governor, pictured above. Whenever I hear him speak on the radio, I am disgusted by his whining delivery of trite left-liberal platitudes punctuated by the cheers of his adoring crowds. Take these lines below come from the Transcript of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's 2013 State of the State Address:
    Protect a woman's freedom of choice. Enact a Reproductive Health Act because it is her body, it is her choice. Because it's her body, it's her choice. Because it's her body, it's her choice.... Maybe it’s a man's world, but it is not a man's world in New York. Not anymore. We are going to pass this Women's Equality Act. We are going to change the lives for my daughters and your daughters and your sisters and your nieces and your wife and your significant other and every person in this room. Every person in this room. And we’re going to do it this year.
Episcopal translation: "This legislation this bill does not simply update New York law or codify Roe vs. Wade[; i]t would usher in extreme and sweeping changes to abortion policy in New York State" — Advocates lobby for Gov. Cuomo's Women's Equality Act as Catholic Conference objects. More:
    What is not provided in the bill are protections for institutional providers, such as religious hospitals and other agencies that do not wish to be involved with abortion... The bill declares that "the state shall not discriminate" against the exercise of the fundamental right to abortion in the "provision of benefits, facilities, services or information." In other words, it would permit state regulators, such as the State Health Department or State Insurance Department, to require support for abortion from any agency or institution licensed or funded by the state.

Disgusting tyrant in a state ruled by wicked, overly wealthy elitists.

Bloomberg and Cuomo are protected by guards who don't have to worry about being arrested for firing the eighth shot if the situation requires it (which I hope they never have to for they and their charge's sakes, let's make it clear!)

Is he really stupid enough to think this will pass constitutional muster? Perhaps he thinks that because the HHS mandate has not yet been entirely struck down, it will.
