Manhattan, boarded up

From the video:

“They’re afraid. This was not riots.”

No, but the owners were afraid of the riots. The buildings are intact, occupied by businesses, but for how long? When a business doesn’t sell anything, how does it pay rent?

Every day we see the results of rioting and burning, but no one shows the clean, empty streets and plywood covering Manhattan store windows.

Gov. Cuomo:  “I literally talk to people all day long who are in their Hamptons house who also lived here, or in their Hudson Valley house or in their Connecticut weekend house, and I say, ‘You gotta come back, when are you coming back?’
“‘We’ll go to dinner, I’ll buy you a drink. Come over, I’ll cook.’”
And he admits: “A single per cent of New York’s population pays half of the state’s taxes and they’re the most mobile people on the globe.”

The famous 1 percent. That group Occupy Wall Street demanded pay more and more of public programs. You don’t remember Occupy Wall Street? Then you do not understand why we have riots and looting now.
