Mike unleashes a ‘hail’ storm (Bloomberg threatens to "destroy your 'f'n' industry")
The New York Post ^ | May 22, 2013 | Emily Smith

Posted on 05/22/2013 4:27:21 AM PDT by Oratam

Mayor Bloomberg went on a spitting-mad rant against a city cab-fleet boss who won a court victory over Hizzoner’s planned “Taxi of Tomorrow” — vowing to “destroy your f--king industry” when he leaves office, The Post has learned.

Bloomberg’s tirade included the warning that, “After January, I am going to destroy all you f--king guys.”

Problem is, these voters from Noo Yawk and Joisey are Snowbirds. They come south, vote absentee for Bloomers, vote for Crist and Nelson in Florida, and Obama in both places.

...and along those same lines, Millions of New Yorkers spend voting season in FL, and they are just smart enough to understand voting in both places is easy as pie.

...and speaking of early voting, all the rage in many states including mine, a pox on early voting the latest scam to sway elections before the campaign is even over.

The biggest problem in America today is that you have to be rich to get elected to office.

We have too many rich people who think they know how to run the country. Rich fascists.

It is almost impossible to get elected to any important office in this country unless you have a pee-pot full of money.

I have always advocated that incumbents should have their electoral funds handed over to the Government at the end of each electoral run. Incumbents with millions left over from one run use this money to defeat anyone else running. It gives them an unfair advantage, as if they hadn't already used Government funds to help in their next election. Voting entitlements and Franking privileges are hard enough to beta without a million in a slush fund from their last election.

Some of those cab companies have (hidden)owners that believe in resolving disputes the old fashioned way.

agree. The problem with new york is new yorkers. There is a reason that NY has so many ultra liberal reps in Kongress. That reason being that New Yorkers elect them because they represent NY values.

... nothing would calm Bloomberg — who at one point looked about for security to toss Freidman from the club.

“This was my club that Bloomberg was a guest in, that I had paid to get in, and he wasn’t getting me kicked out of my own place,” said Freidman.

His lawyers have asked MSG to preserve any surveillance video that may have captured the exchange.

Freidman wondered how the mayor planned to “destroy” his industry.

I'll never understand why New Yorkers elect the politicians that they do. Nor do I want to.

Tyranny sure is contagious. If this continues, all the little dictators will have to duke it out for top dictator spot, a sort-of dictator death match. Jarrett vs. Bloomberg. She'd win.

Here are the good aspects of this.
1. Somebody this angry will die of a stroke.
2. Even people who don’t normally care and don’t normally vote are becoming aware that too much government is a bad thing.
3. He has declared his intentions, which puts the other side on notice.
4. This battle will weaken him without substantially damaging the other side, which may emerge even stronger.
5. This will improve popcorn sales nationwide.

It would be an even better idea if we did away with Washington all together. There is no reason in this day and age that we have to send people to Washington. They should just meet and vote electronically. If these people had to live under the laws they passed, if they had to face their constitulants every single day they might be a litte more careful.

Why won’t everyone just accept anything Bloomberg tells them to do and obey him without question? What’s everyone’s problem, anyway? People that think they have the right to control their own lives? Pshaw! He is our lord and master. We should follow every whim he has, pay whatever fines he decrees for everything he finds objectionable. All hail Bloomberg!

I guess so.

I’m one of those people who just doesn’t get why some people have such a need to control others. All I keep thinking is he’s a millionaire, he can go anywhere and do anything he wishes. Why can’t he just leave people alone? Do nice things for people with all his money? But no. He has power. And he he wants more, more, more...

Power is like a drug, I guess. I’ve never experienced having real power so I suppose I can never really understand. But on the other hand I’ve no desire to have power over people. I just want to do what to live my life and be left alone.

And again, this is why I would choose to live in Detroit over NY.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

It's really disgusting. People from places like NY, NY, MA, etc. where the economies have been stagnated by astronomical taxes and oceans of regulations flee to places like FL TX etc. where there is no income tax and lots fewer regulations. BUT THE FIRST THING THEY DO WHEN THEY ARRIVE IS TRY AND MAKE THEIR NEW HOME EXACTLY LIKE THE LAST ONE

They elect liberal tax and spend politicians. They demand more regulations. They lobby for gun control. In short they sh!t where they ate until it was so full that they had to leave and now they're doing exactly the same thing again.

Guy I know, parents are a case in point. He loaths 0bama. His parents jewish NYCites OTO Never voted anything but Democrat. What did they do? RETIRED TO PALM BEACH COUNTY and brought their voting habits with them.

The Taxi of Tomorrow is a Nissan NV200 entry level cargo van, converted into a taxi. The NV200 is a good truck, GM and Nissan just announced the NV200 will be rebadged as a Chevy fleet truck...

http://www.autoblog.com/2013/05/14/nissan-nv200-puts-on-a-bowtie-as-new-chevy-city-express/

The NV200 is going to eventually be used as a taxi in the US and Canada, Nissan is going to make a killing off of this, even if NYC taxpayers don’t benefit.

I grew up and lived in New York city till last year when I moved out, best thing I ever did. It’s a city run 1000% under despotism now. I couldn’t take it anymore, it was like living in North Korea lite. The final straw was when the despot Bloomberg demanded all landlords provide a list to the city of all their tenants who smoke in their apartments. I was like WTF?? That’s Nazi sh*t! Flat out Nazi tactics! “Send us a list of all your Juden!” The guy is out of his mind..And then this obsession of his with bicycles, everything is bicycles bicycles bicycles to the point where there’s so much traffic you can’t get any place anymore. How do you like this from yesterday? He’s go so many bike racks lining the sidewalk that an ambulance couldn’t get a patient out! LOL!
