Better to be feared than loved ~ Machiavelli
Does Andrew Cuomo look like a modern day Lorenzo de' Medici? Will Cuomo act like a modern day Lorenzo? New York State's Comptroller DiNapoli has said New York State finances are on a razor edge. Then, the USA days of Rage hit Wall Street. Wall St. protests ended in mayhem. and Wall Street protesters, many of whom are young girls, are cuffed, pepper-sprayed during 'inequality' march. Will Cuomo ignore those pain-filled girls who are crying?
An organizer's website, #OccupyWallStreet, says it's more than a Hashtag - It's Revolution in Formation. Their Revolution is aimed at the people who pay the taxes Prince Cuomo needs to run NY State government. Will Prince Cuomo let these revolutionaries, drive the biggest New York State Taxpayers out, or diminish their earnings? Without their NY State Income Tax payments, Prince Cuomo's State would be pushed off the Comptroller's described razor's edge.
Meanwhile, the greedy billionaire Mayor Bloomberg has said he wants to keep his billions and will not fairly share them with the needy. Is the Progressive Prince Cuomo's heart ready to increase taxes on the poor to satisfy billionaire Bloomberg's idea of fairness? Will Prince Cuomo's heart or his head rule?
This could be Prince Cuomo's defining moment. He's loved by 77%. But, Machiavelli in "The Prince" said, "it would be best to be both loved and feared. But since the two rarely come together, anyone compelled to choose will find greater security in being feared than in being loved."

Or are the crying girls calling attention to the hand writing on the walls of Cuomo's Wall Street?
"Mene, Mene, Tekel, u-Pharsin" which was translated for the final Babylonian King Belshazzar as, "God has numbered your remaining days in power; your number is up; you've been weighed and found deficient; and your State will be divided up financially and given to its creditors."
