Wow. I mean, just wow.

50 years ago, men like my grandfather, who helped build the Empire State Building, would have this bozo arrested or killed.

This is outright and bold-faced treason. Right in your faces, folks. If I lived in NYC or anywhere in the northeast, I would be making arrangements to get the Hell out of Dodge.

How in the world did this little dictator wannabe get elected?

My God, the crap this guy spews and the utter lack of pushback speaks volumes for the mindset of the liberal elites and the sheep of NYC.

What an evil little man.

There is NO WAY this can be taken out of context. The very fact that one uttered this statement kinda says it all.

The founding fathers understood this concept.

That is why they wrote the Bill of Rights, to restrict oppressive government.

I think I can say with certainty if the year was 1776, Bloomberg would be a good, loyal “King's Man”.

Just a little infringment...

utter lack of pushback

What are you talking about?

The comments about NYC on this forum are almost uniformly clueless - as if it were the mythical land of Mordor rather than a real place.

The rantings of guilt ridden billionaires don’t translate into good policy. During this idiot’s twelve years as mayor, an entire generation was “educated” at the NYC public schools he supervises and celebrates. Sadly 80% are judged to be illiterate despite their twelve year tenure in the union staffed public schools. No wonder the guy wants to talk about soda.

Bloomberg should mann up then and live by his own rules. Since he’s very wealthy his wealth needs to be redistributed by the government.

Except in the case of legalized sodomy, then the state has a responsibility to officially sanction and reward it.

And force employers to teach tolerance and diversity.

Mad? Perhaps so, I think he is showing more and more that he has never been told “NO!” in his life. Not by his parents, Business sycophants, Government Sycophants, no one seems to have ever told him No and made it stick.

We are seeing this more and more with our so-called “leaders”. I guess this means we just need to keep saying No! and make it stick.

“I wonder if NYCers, will ever rise up against him.”

I predict they will eventually tire of his nannying. Guys like this usually end up over-reaching and even the welfare-type will get their fill of him.

NYC has elected this maniac as their mayor three times in a row.

I'll mention two things:

(1) NYC is a crazy quilt of ethnic and special interests - coalitions of constituencies win elections, not winning personalities.

(2) Bloomberg has ripped his mask off in his third term because there will be no fourth. And people are not happy about it and are letting him know.

The jerk claims he’s not running again. He wants to get involved with newspapers and political activism.

From regulating salt in foods, to soda bottle size, to formula milk - he’s a NAZI.

You can see how puffed up with indignation he is when he delivers one of his tirades from behind a podium - rocking back and forth and ranting. Someday he’s liable to blow up with indignation and self-importance - right there on the podium.

As usual I ask myself, “And what are we doing about this situation?”
So if you think “utter lack of pushback” is an odd way to see it, please encourage me by giving an example of pushback, other than grumbling, whining and keyboarding.

If you were a hard working German or Finn, would you want your money to go for a carte blanche bail out of people who worked 30 hour weeks and expected to retire at fifty?

Don’t forget the city council had to change their own term limit law to let him run a third time.

Its worse than ‘no pushback’. He seems to be a favored son.

Don’t forget the city council had to change their own term limit law to let him run a third time.

The city council was bribed to do so (it enabled its members to run for more terms as well), it caused a significant controversy and fueled the Liu candidacy. New Yorkers went to the courts to have it overturned, then when they were denied they filed to have a referendum on the issue and when that was denied they brought it to the state legislature, where the GOP let it die in committee.

Again, a lot of posters here seem to do very little homework when it comes to badmouthing NYC.

Its worse than ‘no pushback’. He seems to be a favored son.

So favored that he won by less than 1% in an election where the turnout was less than 30%?

Give me a break.

NYC politics are broken and Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions to exploit the holes in the system.

If you hadn't noticed, the guy gets booed at every public event that it isn't a fundraiser he's hosting.

I heard this and thought has he gone mad or is this what the utter elitist class think today.

Once they get rid of the religious freedom by getting rid of DOMA then they want to be looked at as Gods.
They want us to pray to them

I;ve never fell for the civil war thing before but the way this country is ging then how much can the feds and the elitist ruling class take.

Communist Europe tried this and we beat them but the communists over here never went away.
They lived and clung onto that communist dream and so they worked to now overthrow this country as Russia was gone.

Attack the 10th, the 1st religious freedom, and the 2nd and then basically evrything else falls into line with their radical left wing views and for this country to go the same way as Eastern Europe

. Tar and feathers would still work ... if LE will STAND DOWN. Along with politicians, various school teachers/administrators race baiters and especially members of the enemedia need to join the tarred and feathered on the rail out of town. The revolution will start when LE attempts to get in the way.

agree, this country has gone insane and the officials think they;re God

Judges to decide on what marriage is, have they gone mad we know what it is, and having their own family there to profit from their decision is hardly fair.
Then cuts on what to drink, to smoke, what is displayed, te high taxes, occupy smellies allowed to camp.

It seems the only think the communist left and socialist NAZI’s understand is force.
Yhey are afriad of people rising up and if it takes millions of us outside the white house then so be it.

People are angry, seeing what they are seing, being told what marriage is by a few handful elitist corrupt fools, , tens of millions have voted on this issue, seeing the military be robbed, the younger generations be brainwahsed and have to pay for this spending
