Bloomhole is a moron.
We didn’t take him literally, but liberally. Typical Liberal Behavior...
Perhaps some of us took him dummassedly, but I repeat myself.
Just RESIGN Bloombooger, you f’n Socialist gonad.
If all the police went on strike, in some cities those assault weapons would be all people had to protect themselves.
So now it is our fault to take your words ‘literally’?
Next time you say something, the rest of us should just ignore you, um, Mister Mayor?
It actually happened in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1975. citizens work guns. Crime virtually ended for that 10 days. Criminals knew they were dead,,and that no cops would arrive to save them.
If he didn’t mean it, he wouldn’t have said it.
That should read, citizens wore guns.
Only a liberal would think that this was logical:
OK, so you people aren’t clamoring for gun control,
so we should create a situation in which you absolutely need your guns to protect yourself
until you clamor for the government to remove that means of protecting yourself.
This idiot has the likeability of a colon polyp, and the iq of dirt.
Bloomberg, a graduate from Joe Biden College. Potential leftist VP.
Mayor BloomingIdiot is trying to walk back his comments.
What a ‘swipe.
Bloomberg has gone WAY past RINO, blown the doors off “moderate Democrat”, and is now nothing less than a full blown elitist, hypocritical, double-standard, Commie aszwipe.
Let ‘em strike. It’ll be a lot cheaper and many of us can take care of ourselves. The city will just miss out on all that ticket revenue.
You’ve suffered a classical “spellchecker assisted grammatical error,” altogether too similar to many of mine.
Bloomberg: “I was for it before I was against it. But I didn’t really say that myself.”
Sigh, so true.
One can never “unsay” what one has said.
Yeah. Sure. We took his words “out of context.”
What is it with the liberals and their doggoned “context” problem? Could be that liberal dogma, when analyzed, is retarded?
In the well-armed, hill country precincts where I reside everything would proceed pretty much the same as always, only with justice a bit more swift, and with considerably less expense for lawyers, judges, prolonged trials and comfortable prison stays.
Big-mouth nanny-boy Bloomberg wouldn’t be welcome here.
If he didn’t mean it “literally”, what did he mean? They should “go on strike, figuratively” - show up for work and get paid, but refuse to do anything?
Stupid remarks like this intentional or not is why they will not run bidens speech live, and no twitters. they are tired of us calling them on their outrageous remarks.
Have your security detail disarm first, then we’ll talk. Troll.
No, Bloomberg didn’t mean what he said.
And 0bama didn’t mean what he said.
And Feinstein didn’t mean what they said.
And every other one of these POS libs were taken out of context.
Maybe they should stop lying. Then they wouldn’t have to walk it back.
He’s just another low IQ Liberal shooting off his mouth and who ought to just keep his mouth SHUT!
Who is going to arrest vendors serving 16 oz soft drinks then?
Everyone disarm, only the government needs to be armed! Or else the police will strike?
This is just brilliant.
Bloomberg sounds like some kind of Nazi dictator.
It's just amazing the types of controlling fanatics who've gained power in the U.S.
We now know he's qualified to work for ABC News, anyway.
If he didn’t mean what he said, STFU. Bloomie is such an A-Hole. Glad to see you go.
A “literal” strike would have driven the concept of Second Amendment rights home to so many who refuse to see.
24 hours, maximum.
Bloomer pulled an Obama.
If bloomerburg didn’t have all that money he would probably be “hangin” w/the occupy wall street clowns.
As it is he is just another clown.
Then maybe he should THINK before he speaks before he confirms what we all already knew ... that he was indeed a FOOL!
He meant it. He said it and he meant it and he meant to say it. He should step down after such an assinine and dangerous remark as that.
Dear CBS News:
Whenever public indignation, public laughter, or getting caught in a lie forces a liberal politician to retract something, you let them gracefully “clarify” instead.
Please stop trying to change the plain meaning of words for the benefit of liberal politicians.
Retract doesn’t mean clarify.
The English Language
(with all due apologies to my Native American FRiends for any offense)
Bloomberg compensates for being a little man with a short penis, by opening his mouth. My friends down South would say he has a “hummingbird ass with an alligator mouth.”
Just like Obama’s “you didn’t build that” were taken out of context. Yeah, that’s the ticket!
“Bloomberg Control” means holding the handle down long enough on the toilet to make sure the Bloomberg swirls down the drain.
The people of NYC picked a winner. One freedom after another taken from them and they stand by idly accepting it. Pretty damn sad.
If the police were to strike, crime would sky rocket. Would that make him a candidate for a civil suit?
Actually, I agree with a lot of these liberal anti-gunners.
New Yorkers and Californians shouldn’t be allowed to have firearms to defend themselves.
We can’t trust them to vote like responsible Americans, why should we trust them with firearms?
Bingo! We have a winner!!
You think the 2nd amendment needs to go, you are NOT an American. If you are NOT an American, the 2nd does NOT apply to you and you are too stupid to be armed anyway.
Go face the rampaging mobs of “yutts” all on your own.
As for me? Cops SHOULD go on strike and let Americans take care of themselves.
I can’t remember, it was a long time ago, but someone did a study on career criminals. Over 95% of incarcerated violent criminals FEARED running into an armed civilian and had little fear of the cops. They knew the cops had to follow rules are regulations before shooting. Civilians did not. I’ll try to find it, it was published in the ‘80s or ‘90s.
Go ahead, go on strike. Who needs ya? At least the canine population would be safe. Donut shops might close, though
Ah give poor bloomy a break, his wife told him to say that because she wears the pants.
Bloomberg’s “You didn’t build that” moment.
