Dyster always available for photo ops at taxpayer expense

Nothing keeps a man warm better on a cold winter's night than a snootful of some intoxicating beverage. And what better time to get up and make a speech. Here (a very warm) Dyster appears at some taxpayer funded event to take credit for it.

Nothing keeps a man warm better on a cold winter’s night than a snootful of some intoxicating beverage. And what better time to get up and make a speech. Here (a very warm) Dyster appears at some taxpayer funded event to take credit for it.

A man for all seasons. Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster sent out a press release to the local media (except the Reporter) to announce that there were “warming centers” for homeless people – which while taking credit in the press, he had, as far as we could determine, little to do with their establishment as refuges for homeless people.

Unless of course you consider Dyster’s policies as having helped create more homelessness in the city.

Taxpayer-subsidized beer fests are right up Paul Dyster's alley since he owns a store in Tonawanda that promotes home beer brewing.

We are waiting for the photo of Dyster ushering a homeless person in from the cold.

But whatever the reason and whatever the season, Dyster is always willing to be part of any photo op that helps reveal the man he is to his people – which incidentally are the highest taxed, most crime afflicted, impoverished folks in New York State. This would be lamentable in any city, but when you consider this city is a tourist town with eight million tourists coming (with money in their pockets) per year and with the world’s greatest natural hydropower, you have to wonder how Dyster managed to lead the city into such enduring poverty.

Onstage he is king. Here Paul Dyster introduces a taxpayer funded act. The generous mayor spent more than $700,000 in public money to subsidize the Hard Rock Cafe's beer and concession sales driven concert series. Mayor Dyster allowed taxpayers to pay for the musical act while Hard Rock sold the beer and hot dogs and kept the profits. Meantime Dyster's high tax policies resulted in hundreds of homes being foreclosed by the city when people could not keep up with the high property tax payments. According to the New York State Restructuring board, the property taxes in Niagara Falls are the ranked as the highest in New York State. New York State in turn is the highest taxed state in America. Party on.

Party on.

And if that was not enough, every year Dyster got between $15 and $20 million from Albany via the Seneca Nation for their slot machine monopoly here (about $200 million total). Never before has a small town had so much and  kept so little.

Of course, none of this incredible poverty amid riches would be possible without Dyster being a puppet to Albany and serving the governor’s interests ahead of the city’s interest.

But while he has let the city slip into deep decline, Dyster appears frequently as the clown about town.

Mayor Dyster has only one condition for giving away public money to musical promoters for profit – that he appears onstage. Here the good Mayor enjoys appearing for the Blues Fest, which is poetic irony since the people of the city have long been feeling (if not singing) the blues. That overburdened taxpayers should be further burdened with paying for some promoter’s blues event is just the sort of folly that makes Dyster the clown prince of Niagara Falls.

Here the affable Mayor Paul Dyster appears on stage again. The Reporter has roughly calculated that every time Dyster appears onstage it costs taxpayers, on average, $10,000.  And this is unjust in a poverty town. After all, if people want to see concerts, they should pay for it themselves. Simple old fashioned American enterprise-driven virtue. The idea of forcing you to pay for someone else’s concert is about as savage an idea that anyone could ever come up with. If I robbed you at gunpoint and made you buy a ticket for somebody else to go to a blues concert you’d think me a savage. But if government (which gets its money solely by taking it by force from the people through something called taxation) forces some people to pay for free concerts for others, the media celebrates the achievement and politicians rejoice in front of the cameras. Someday this will be seen as the savagery it really is. For it is the poor and the struggling middle class who suffer most from high taxes. The poor suffer from a lack of jobs and higher rents and smaller paychecks when they can find work and the middle class shoulder the disproportionate burden as their children are deprived of hard earned luxuries (like going to concerts). Taxpayer money is spent on frivolous nonessential things like concerts, subsidized hotels for millionaire developers and glorious train stations that nobody uses which will cost taxpayers millions in hidden costs, so that Dyster can pose in front of cameras and say ‘I got this done. Me – I built you a train station. Me folks.’ 
Paul Dyster, like other politicians, loves to appear at ground breaking events with a golden shovel in hand. They appear to be shoveling dirt out of the ground but they are actually shoveling taxpayer money into the ground - money from the middle class taxpayers to favored millionaire - developers who get their projects tax-free and usually at only the tiny cost of making campaign donations to the politicians (seen with shovels in hand.)
