Sean Hannity to Leave New York After Andrew Cuomo's Anti-Conservative Rant [w/audio]
Breitbart.com/Big-Journalism ^ | 1-20-2014 | Jeffrey Poor

Posted on 01/20/2014 5:40:23 PM PST by servo1969

“Now I want to tell you something – I was born and raised in New York,” Hannity said. “I want you to know that and I can’t wait to get out of here. I really can’t. I don’t want to pay their 10-percent state tax anymore. I live in the second-highest property taxed county in the entire country in Nassau County. I can’t wait to sell my house to somebody who wants it. I can’t wait to pay no state income tax down in Florida or Texas. I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning Florida because I like the water and I like to fish.”

******

“Gov. Cuomo, I’m going to leave and I’m taking all of my money with me – every single solitary penny,” he added. “And by the way governor, because I work here – there’s a whole bunch of people that work for me and benefit because I do two shows. And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. I’m sure you’ll take care of them.”

Actually Detroit is going in exactly the opposite direction as NY.

He can move in next to Rush. They can split security costs :)

I know how Sean feels, I am in liberal looney SoCal and even though this state is in the progressive gutter, even Jerry Brown hasnt said something THAT ridiculous. Trust me I would LOVE to leave this state, but my family is here so its tough..my friends tell me to move to Georgia or Texas, but its hard just picking up and stating a new life somewhere else

I wonder if he’s leaving FNC. Wouldn’t surprise me after his demotion to the 10 pm slot.

Sounded like he was trying to back out of it after he ranted for awhile or leave it open ended. Totally outrageous what Cuomo said. Rally in Queens tomorrow.

I wouldn't blame him, depends on if his wife wants to give up that gorgeous house on Oyster Bay.

He said he needs more than 7 rounds in his AR-15 and he wasn't talking about hunting deer.

I left washington state for KY a few years ago. It wasn’t the politicians. It was the people. The people who elected them. The people in KY are wonderful.

“FOX should move to Texas”, was one commenters opinion.

THAT is a great idea (along with boycotting all things New York).

All of upstate NY is an economic wasteland due the the insane economic policies of democrats and RINOs.

NYC will revert to the economic wasteland it was in the 1970s the minute the massive bailouts, TARP, HARP and QE end. Wall street with the trillions of taxpayer bailouts is the only thing keeping NYC and surrounding counties afloat...

I’m still thinking about moving to Detroit. And there’s a good chance I will, despite the fact that I can’t get my magazines to eject with the custom grips I bought for myself for Christmas.

My facebook friend told me I should move to Georgia, seems like a beautiful place but I dont know anyone there..my two choices would either be Georgia or Texas..not all of California is bad, but unfortunately its so overrun by leftist whackos it cant be saved, not even by Reagan, he couldnt save this state if he were alive today

I have lived in Texas and loved the state. Also liked the people but the Florida Panhandle will always be home to me.

BTW, the Texas beaches are just plain awful. Florida’s first congressional district has been called the nation’s most conservative.

That actually is a great idea. Move the headquarters to Dallas, and keep the D.C. studio and the Fox Business NY studio, but move the rest to Texas. If Shep gets hysterical, send him to CNN.

Leverage HD video links with Fox affiliates so remote guests seem like they are in the same studio.

CNN proved you can run most of a major news network outside of NY/DC.

Detroit can’t be beat as far as personal freedoms go. They’ve got a long way to go on the economic freedoms but you can smoke and drink in the street while carrying a gun and nobody gives you any crap about eating a powdered doughnut.

Watch out Hannity since New York likes to audit people who have means. Just ask Rush.

Speaking of Rush, do you remember the last booger eating moron governor of NY, the blind guy, who basically said "good riddance" to Rush. Rush's response was, I'm leaving and taking all those tax dollars I've been paying with me!

That shut him up pretty quickly, and he never mentioned it again, though NY state keeps on auditing Rush.

Detroit is a great town for sports too. Tigers and Lions right downtown, Hockey and Basketball aren’t far away. There’s powerboat racing on the river and air racing above it with Indy car racing on Belle isle. MIS is over here about an hour away.

If Hannity really wanted to do something smart...he would leave the growing-liberal and pro-terrorist Fox News.

If he hasn’t figured that Ailes, Murdoch, and Prince Alwaleed bin Talal aren’t already pushing him out now, he is pretty foolish

Getting out of NY is a start...maybe next he bolts Faux News

I lived in Texas in the 60’s. For me it’s just too darned hot. And too cold in the winter (lived near Fort Worth). And, truth be told, if there was no such thing as air conditioning, I wouldn’t live in KY. In Seattle, AC for your house was not really necessary. Here it is an absolute requirement. In your car, too.

But it’s amazingly green and beautiful here. And the roads! It is a motorcyclists paradise.

TARP was paid back, years ago, at a profit to the Treasury. HARP had nothing to do with Wall Street and was a huge failure.

QE doesn't involve taxpayer dollars. It does transfer interest income from the banks to the Fed (Treasury).

Georgia has a state income tax and high gas taxes.

Florida and Texas have no state income tax.

Georgia is beautiful.Nice people. Almost everywhere outside of Atlanta is great!
And as to Atlanta (big city), it's not as bad as some others.

They do have a state income tax though.

In my travels, that just means another extra added layer of potential government corruption is in play.

But your friend was probably right to advise you to move there.
It's a nice place to transition to from a blue state, and learn that it's up to you to make new friends.
For myself, the choice was always either Florida or Georgia.
If I ever win a lottery, I seriously would consider moving north to south Georgia.

My neighbor’s grandson has started to use my term “Urban Frontier” to try to get others from his company to take the transfer from NY.

Play your cards right and you might build a fairly profitable black market selling goat meat to the arabs in the area.

If climate is important to you, the Mountains of Western, North Carolina or Eastern Tennessee is really nice, particularly in the Summer. The Vanderbilts liked the area around Asheville.

Actually Northern Georgia is pretty good too.

My friend lives in Cumming, not familiar with the area so don’t know how nice it is but she has lived there all her life so she is probably a little biased :-). would love to move to Texas, or any Conservative state, it would be nice for a change to be around Conservatives instead of liberals, but its hard to just get up and move, especially when you know no one in the state that you want to move to. If I had a job in that state, sure I would get up and leave now

I find it hard to believe the assertion that Quantitive Easing does not involve taxpayer dollars-really? My understanding of QE, as a person with two degrees in finance, and also a CFA does not concur with this observation. When the Treasury issues all of this paper who is the guarantor on it? Is it not the US taxpayer?

Violent crime in Detroit was down 14% last year with murder dropping by 7%. The new police chief attributes it to armed citizens and he’s encouraging more of it.

As far as being bankrupt is concerned, the country as a whole is in considerably worse shape with most American cities holding debt that make Detroit’s $20 billion look like spare change.

My Family has been in the Florida Panhandle since the Highland Clearances in Scotland. They first landed in North Carolina but very quickly moved to the Walton County area of Florida. They were well ensconced by the 1700s.

This whole area was settled by Highland Scots from the Western Islands mostly.
