    It shouldn't come as surprise that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who campaigned on fighting income inequality and wants to tax the rich to pay for public transit improvements, has a fairly dim view of private property rights. But "dim" is apparently a bit of an understatement. De Blasio flat out does not believe in the right to private property.

    That's highlighted in its starkest terms in a New York piece out this week. Here is de Blasio's response when asked about efforts to fight income inequality:

    What's been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there's a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that's the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development....

    Welcome to America you communist MF... how does people like this guy get elected, oh I know the answer to that, all the immigrants that have completely taken over NYC were communist or socialist before we allowed all the ass wipes to come in. I wouldn't live in that sewer for no amount of money and I have been there in the mid 60s and it was still a nice city then with a lot of good people but that has just about all changed because all the working class now commute and live far and away from city proper.

    It is curious why these pro-socialists don't just move to where their dream-system is already in place. And, I'd like to encourage all these EU wannabees to consider it. Your dream society awaits. Don't feel the need to share your vision with us. We'll try and get by without you.

    Just think, if you only buy a one-way ticket you can go nearly twice as far.

    I'd be sure that De Blasio's view on this wouldn't include his own house or those of his liberal elite friends such as trial lawyers and white collar government union bosses.
