More Stupid Nonsense From Politicians

I came across a real gem of an article in today's New York Daily News. Apparently, a jealous politician (no doubt a Yankee fan) named Ivan Lafayette, an assemblyman from Queens, wants to ban all New York state vanity license plates that have the Boston Red Sox logo on it. I read this article and had to laugh. Here we go with yet another unknown politician trying to get his name in the paper by latching on to something incredibly silly and stupid. Last time I looked, we had freedom of choice in this state. (Maybe that's about to change?) He says he wants to "stir up some controversy". Unbelievable.

Yet another jackass politician who has absolutely nothing better to do. I guess we don't have any more pressing issues in New York state. We have to make sure those evil Red Sox fans are unable to show their pride in their team by making sure their license plates can't show the team logo. Lafayette also says something incredible inane: "It will help New Yorkers realize where their loyalties should be."

SCREW YOU Lafayette!! We have freedom to support whichever sports franchise we want, whether it be the Red Sox, Mets, Yankees, Atlanta Braves or Tampa Bay Devil Rays! Do you propose to ban vanity plates from any team that isn't from New York? Liberal politicians like this guy go on all day about diversity, but of course this moron believes we can't have that when it comes to license plates! And don't you dare tell me "where my loyalties should be." I'm a Boston Red Sox fan, as well as a born and raised New Yorker, and DAMN PROUD TO BE BOTH!!

Absolutely incredible. If you'd like to read the article (it's a short one) here it is:

For those of you Sox fans who want to let this moron know what you really think of this crap, his phone numbers are: (718) 457-0384 (district office), and (518) 455-4545 (Albany office). His email address is : lafayei@assembly.state.ny.us

BTW, Ivan:

Shea Stadium borders your district & the NY Mets actually welcomes Red Sox Nation. This is America & NOT The Peoples' Republic Of The Bronx, where Red Sox & Mets Caps are seen in The East Bronx, BTW.

It sounds UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

Because I was 9 months old when the Brooklyn Dodgers won the '55 World Series, my 1955 was the '04 Boston Red Sox.
Lafayette, who grew up in Brooklyn, should know better.
Red Sox Nation is STRONG here.
He will underestimate our #s & our base & our POWER.
