Move over, Google Maps! Introducing the NYC Public Urination Map!
Now that New York City is decriminalizing public urination, New Yorkers of every stripe want to know where they can go to witness New York's version of the Old Faithful geyser, watching powerful stream of apple juice colored liquids gracing the noble streets of New York from powerful local spouts. Thankfully 21st century mapping technology has taken the guesswork out of this, as New York introduces its very first urination map! (Not to confuse this with, or to dethrone, San Francisco's solid human waste street map!)
Corona, Queens is the public urination capital of New York. Coming in second is Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Bronx, which usually comes in first place when it comes to matters of societal disintegration, has some substantial "wet zones" in southern parts. Midtown and lower Manhattan looks like a big yellow swimming pool. But no part of the city is spared, though for most of Staten Island, people, for some reason, elect to use toilets.
Other top areas included East Harlem and the West Village in Manhattan, Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, and Astoria and Long Island City in Queens.
Doesn't the diagram above look like a weather map? You know, people say that drought is a natural consequence of global warming, but I think with the "loosening" of urination laws that flooding is likely to be in the forecast for the near future!
“This is tradition,” Alejandro Gomez, 31, said recently from a bench in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where he shared a six-pack with two friends who rose to urinate, undetected, beside a park around 2 a.m. As two of the men returned to their seats, after leaving their mark on a tree and a park gate, clouds of marijuana smoke wafted their way from down the block.
In a country that had given up so many traditions, do you feel good that Alejandro is continuing this one?
The force has already stepped back from blanket enforcement of minor offenses. Summonses have fallen. Arrests are down. The administration has also contended with weeks of unsettling headlines about rises in shootings and homicides through the first several months of the year.
All this talk of crime and public urination reminds me of Bing Crosby singing an old song I have only slightly modified:
"It doesn't show signs of stopping And I've bought some corn for popping The lights are turned way down low Let It Flow! Let It Flow! Let It Flow!"
Here's another great line from the article:
On the issue of public urination, enforcement need not be evenhanded, according to Mr. Maple
And here's yet another:
Councilman Corey Johnson said that though penalties for some nonviolent offenses should be reduced, public urination was a separate matter. “There is already a significant problem every single weekend with widespread, out-of-control peeing,” Mr. Johnson, who represents much of Manhattan’s West Side, said
If peeing is out of control, do you think the city should send social workers to help people with their aim?
Scott Walker walks back his statement on gay scout leaders
If you listen to Scott Walker talk long enough, you will always find yourself agreeing with something he says. For example, many conservatives agree with his comments yesterday saying the ban on gay scout leaders protected kids. And many liberals will agree with him today when he walked back those comments.
Are drug companies using bogus studies to push statins?
On the whole, I love drug companies. They have created many wonderful drugs which have eased human suffering. But they are companies like any other business, which means their aim is to increase sales as much as possible, so caveat emptor!

You'll never guess where self-deportation of illegals actually works
"What are you going to do, deport 11 million people?" That's the typical question that racists like Jorge Ramos ask of any trembling Republican who dares to fail to vocally support immediate and unconditional mass amnesty for illegal aliens. But even when deportation is off the table, self-deportation, which Mitt Romney proposed, is also ridiculed. But self-deportation works, at least in the Dominican Republic:

Guess how many minorities work in liberal environmental groups?
Republicans are constantly attacked for not having enough minorities in their elected ranks. But no one seems concerned that Democrats, who have 90%+ support from Blacks, somehow only manage to have one elected black senator (Corey Booker)--the same number as Republicans (Tim Scott). Republicans are always asked, "Why are you so unpopular with minorities?"

Does income inequality between Democrats and the illegals they bring in worry you?
As someone concerned with income equality, I find it alarming that the gap between the rich and the poor is growing wider and wider. That's because the millions of illegal aliens Democrats are legalizing are dirt poor, and the more they bring in, the more "poor" poor people there are, and the more the gap between the rich and poor is exacerbated.

Liberals blame slack black park attendance on white racism
Have you ever gone to a national park, and noticed that minorities are not represented in the exact proportions to the general population? Well, the New York Times certainly has! (Can't you imagine a Times reporter getting out of his car in Yosemite, and the first thing he notices is not the breathless beauty around him but the race of the other people in the parking lot?)

Guilty liberal feels illegal alien entitled to his job
Liberals have a love affair with illegal aliens. Firstly, they came into being here through a criminal act, which appeals to liberal sensibilities. Secondly, they reliably support Democrats (some of them vote illegally, and their children born here certainly do). And third of all, they are helping to change the demographics of this country from largely white to hispanic, which pleases liberals, who are usually self-hating whites, to no end.
