Bloomberg to Cabbie: ‘I’ll destroy your [expletive] industry’
Washington Times ^ | 5/22/2013 | Cheryl Chumley

Posted on 05/22/2013 5:40:42 PM PDT by LyinLibs

Mayor Michael Bloomberg cursed out the chief executive officer of a taxi company who won a court case against the city and pledged a post-mayoral revenge against the entire industry, the CEO and one witness said.

“[I will] destroy your [expletive] industry,” Mr. Bloomberg said to Taxi Club Management CEO Gene Freidman, The New York Post reported.

He made the comments during last Thursday’s game at Madison Square Garden during an impromptu meet at the 1879 Club, a witness told The Post.

Mr. Friedman subsequently confirmed the exchange to The Post and added that Mr. Bloomberg also said that come January — when his mayoral term wraps — he would destroy “all you [expletive] guys.

“It was like Gene had kidnapped his child,” the witness told The Post. “He used the f-word twice.”

Here's the "money line" from that story:

The court case centered on the mayor’s attempt to replace the city’s cab fleet with hybrid vehicles — a plan called the Taxi of Tomorrow. The judge ruled that the mayor couldn’t order the fleet change because it violated city code.

Bloomberg is obviously a “man of the people.”

That little outburst of his may also be illegal since he is still mayor and is voicing an ‘official’ threat. I think that’s a big no no.

Bingo! The cabbie’s should hire a good litigation specialist and take him to court.

What a choice NY has for its next mayor.

From the NY Post:

Freidman wondered how the mayor planned to “destroy” his industry. “I don’t know how he’ll destroy me, whether he’ll start a black-car service that will take people for free,” he said. “Perhaps he’ll put $10 million of his own money to lobby against the taxi industry — that is pretty powerful.”

Mr Freidman should run for Mayor.

Deprivation of civil rights under color of authority is no doubt both a state and federal crime. Unfortunately, he lives in New Yawk, and in the country, currently aspiring to third-world shithole status, formerly known as the United States of America. So I guess you’re right, he’s screwed.

Doodooberg moves to ban smoking to salt to soda to styrofoam to food donations to guns, and now he wants to ban cabbies.

Typical leftist response to citizens not giving up their rights. Sounds like Bloomberg has been taking lessons from Obama.

Character counts. Using the “F” word is an automatic disqualification for positions of authority. It shows that you are too stupid and vulgar.

George Peabody, Al Capone and Meyer Lansky,

along with David Rockefeller, J P Morgan and Michael Bloomberg.

One common thread, the way they do business - they get things their way.

They also all have or had great control over government officials.

There for a minute I thought this statement was referring to Odumbo. Guess he and Bloomberg both fit the description though.

Not to worry - Bloomie will just pay off a few more folks and get reelected.

Wiener may actually be an improvement - he will be so busy wagging his wienie at young chicks he won’t have time to screw things up any worse.

A thought just struck me - if Wiener were to declare himself queer and start chasing young boys folks would be falling over each other trying to vote for him.

Bloomberg to Cabbie: ‘I’ll destroy your [expletive] industry’

So because you got caught out ONCE on your 50th venture into meddling in other peoples' business, you now get to destroy the industry that would have been your victims??!!

I'd really hate to have to live in that little (every definition) man's sick head.

Now that you're not going to be emperor, er dictator, er mayor anymore, go do something useful, Mike, if you're able.
