Well, it’s that time of the year. The Great New York State Fair opened yesterday.
I like to think of it as the “Great Time Not to Take 690 Because Traffic is Hell.” But that’s me. Despite the fact that the Great New York State Fair is located just seven miles from my house, I don’t go.
I have an aversion to crowds.
Though I did see Lynn Anderson perform there in 1972. Or 1973. I don’t remember exactly. It was back when my parents made us go. For me one of the best things about becoming an adult was never having to go to the friggin’ Great New York State Fair again.
Sorry Mom and Dad.
Any old how.
Our never-that-great Governor Andrew Cuomo was at yesterday’s opening.
Knowing him, he probably bristled at the fact that it’s called “The Great New York State Fair.” I imagine him riding on the Ferris wheel in the Midway and grumbling into his fritter, “Meh. It’s never been that great.”
Ironically, a new CATO Institute study of the freest states in the union came out.
And New York State ranked at number 50.
Now, anyone who isn’t Barack Obama knows that number 50 means New York State is dead last.
We’re number 50!!!!
We even beat out California (#48).
No wonder Andrew doesn’t think America’s that great.
He’s driven the once Great State of New York all the way to the bottom of the barrel when it comes to freedom.
Thanks to his overregulation, high taxes and assault on individual liberties.
Way to go Andrew! We’re Number 50!!
New CATO Institute study ranks freedom in the 50 states. The 3 states where U.S. citizens are the *least* free:
50. New York
All 3 states voted for Hillary Clinton, have Democrat governors, & have Democrat majorities in both state legislative chambers.

But the truth is, New York ranked dead last in 2017 too.
So clearly New York State was never great – at least since Andrew Cuomo came along.
Knowing him, he’ll probably order the interim Attorney General – that little toad of a woman whose name escapes me – to file a lawsuit against the CATO Institute for ranking New York so low.
Is it any surprise folks are leaving New York in droves?
Unfortunately for the states they migrate to, New York Liberals tend to take their crack-brained Leftist politics with them when they go.
Sorry about that Virginia.
But that might explain why Virginia has dropped from #10 in 2017 to #13 in 2018. Those Leftie New Yorkers are spreading the pain.
At some point voters in New York State have to stand up to the Cuomo Freedom-Killing Juggernaut.
The incompetent governor has already served two terms and is fixing to serve a third.
And if he wins that third term, New York will once again find itself at number 50.
The only good news is, unless Puerto Rico becomes a state, we’ll never rank any lower.
