Michael Bloomberg leaves office tomorrow after 12 years as New York City's mayor. No mayor in recent memory has added so much to a city. Or taken so much away. To remember him properly, here's a list of everything Bloomberg banned during his time in office.

Cell phones in schools (2006)
Two-term limits for city elected officials (2008)
New Yawkers continued to vote him into office.
That’s quite a list.
Good riddance to him. If only his replacement weren’t worse...
What about weasel stomping boots? Are they banned?
Nice going, NYC: Less freedom, less personal wealth.
Organic food waste from landfills????? Huh??
You ain’t seen nothing yet. deBlase will outlaw profits on Wall street...effectively. Retirement home in the Caymans looking better and better...
I'm sure the Dems have big plans for DeBlasio and his 'protected class / human shield' family.
Um . . . if they're illegal, aren't they already banned by definition? Did he make them illegal, or did he just decide to ban them because they were illegal?
If Hillary runs, DeBlasio could be her running mate. They think the same way.
Too bad he didn’t ban Marxists running for Mayor.
Remember when people from the Northeast were considered tough? When did these wussies become such girly men. These are not American citizens they are prisoners.
You forgot common sense.
I heard he’s not only a Marxist but a muzzie just like The One. It’s going to be interesting when another terror attack takes out another 3000 people in NYC, see how they can flip it to blame Republicans. We’ll see another 911 commission where all the liberals responsible for it happening are on the panel.
Now, with Bill de Blasio elected as Bloombergs successor, the city will likely become unlivable as crime escalates and taxes, already onerous, rise. I don't live in Manhattan and won't be affected but his election is troubling in a time when the economy is hurting and crime is rampant in the cities but New Yorkers opt for a soft-on-crime, anti-business socialist as their mayor. Must be something in the water.
Its little wonder why the terrorists keep going after new york since the pussies there will tolerate even the worst treatment and abuse.
The thing about Bloomberg that sits in my craw is his immediate reaction to the botched Times Square terrorist incident in 2010. He immediately said it was probably some “home-grown” individual upset about “the health care law or something.” In truth, the terrorist was Pakistani, trained in a Pakistani terrorist camp, with a mission to kill Americans. With no evidence whatsoever (and a mountain of evidence to suspect Mideast terrorists) Bloomberg likened opponents of ACA to terrorism.
New York is the dump of the Country. They keep electing hard core communists pigs that have destroyed most of the State. How can so much ignorance can survive I can’t understand but New Yorkers seem to love the dictator communists running their lives. They are like the frog in cold water, turn up the heat, and enjoy boiling to death.
There’s also a rumor he’s a Muslim convert which is why he had the Imam do the death prayer at his inauguration
And why the death cult members are such ardent supporters of his which Pamela Geller was trying to put focus on
I moved out of NYC last year and told my brother to do the same. Best decision I ever made especially now knowing this POS is Mayor. Besides the city now being on a fast track to becoming Detroit II, people are also playing Russian roulette anytime they go out. Absolutely guaranteed 1000% another terror attack will happen on this guys watch. Why? Because he wants it to happen.
And, for term #3, which there was a term limit law against,Bloomie went to court & usurped the will of The People by being granted a third term.
It looks like both New York and California are vieing to be the first states to be thrown OUT of the union. Call it a tie and toss ‘em both!
Anthony Weiner was nothing but a diversion, making DeBlasio look more palletable and electable. Imagine starving to death and someone throws down a cow pie next to a dead rat. Suddenly, the dead rat doesn’t look so bad. This is what was done to New Yawkers with Anthony Weiner (cow pie) vs. DeBlasio (rat). Weiner was willing and take the fall for the party in order to get the hardcore Marxist/Communist into office.
Where were the Teamsters?
Now that we have the internet, why do we need Wall Street? Or New Yawk?
Don’t forget *common sense
