It's been gradual but i think we can say it's official that The Big Apple has become The Big Fuck You.
You have obscene pricing, crooked cops, they completely ignoring everything bad going down on Wall Street (and their major cocaine habit), they are a nanny city telling you that you cant have a large soda and now they are going Big Brother on everyone (that isn't part of the government).
Corporations really dont give a damn about what people do so long as they keep getting money from them. However, governments are just itching to break out the swat team for a double parked car.
I think it's time to blow the bridges and drag it out to sea with all the vermin on it.
