Ex-NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg on Dodd-Frank: “The Government Should Have Let the Industry Craft the Bill”

Screen Shot 2014-11-12 at 10.35.10 AMThis week has been the week of the ill advised oligarch quote. It all started quietly enough, with Las Vegas Sands CEO and crony Republican godfather, Sheldon Adelson, expressing his disdain for both journalism and democracy, all in one quaint little conference in which participants debated how quickly and how severely Iran should be bombed into the stone age.

Then we had the architect of Obamacare, the consummate oligarch minion, Jonathan Gruber, admit that the law was deliberately crafted deceptively in order to fool the “stupid” American public.

Mayor Bloomberg on Drones: “Oh it’s Big Brother. Get Used to it”

While hosting his weekly radio show this past Friday, Your Royal Highness Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained to the serfs of NYC that privacy is dead and that you just “can’t keep the tide” of the surveillance state from coming in.  His quotes perfectly demonstrate the attitude he takes toward his subjects and are quite revealing.  For instance:

“Everybody wants their privacy, but I don’t know how you’re going to maintain it.  It’s just we’re going into a different world, uncharted, and, like it or not, what people can do, what governments can do, is different.  And you can to some extent control, but you can’t keep the tides from coming in.”

“The argument against using automation, it’s this craziness– oh, it’s Big Brother. Get used to it.”

As if that isn’t bad enough, it also become 100% crystal clear that this guy wants to fill the skies of NYC with “freedom birds.”  He sees absolutely no problem with it at all.  In his own words:

“But what’s the difference whether the drone is up in the air or on the building? I mean intellectually I have trouble making a distinction. And you know you’re gonna have face recognition software.  People are working on that.”

Mayor Bloomberg and His Security Force Don’t Like Being Questioned on Gun Control

I’m sure many of you have already seen this, but if not it’s an entertaining watch.  Your Royal Highness doesn’t appreciate being questioned by this lowly peasant.  The hypocrisy is endless, which is why the oligarchs are losing the debate.  No worries, the Feinstein legislation is written so now all they need is another event to jam it through Congress.

NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg Throws a Tantrum: Says Cops Should Strike Until Citizens are Disarmed

Poor little billionaire mayor of NYC, Mike Bloomberg, is at it again!  Clearly he couldn’t handle the heat he got for using the tragedy in the state of Colorado (where I happen to actually live) to push his anti-gun agenda.  So how does a megalomaniac cry baby respond?  By throwing a temper tantrum of course.

While on Piers Morgan show on CNN, this despotic control freak showed his true colors.  When asked by Mr. Morgan: “Why do so many Americans not feel angry enough to demand further gun control?” Here’s his answer:

Well, I would take it one step further. I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say, we’re going to go on strike. We’re not going to protect you. Unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.

There you go folks.  This guy, who is the mayor of the largest city in the United States, doesn’t really care about public safety.  He wants to disarm you and he becomes a petulant child about it when he can’t get his way.  In this excellent article from the WSJ, the author rightly tears Bloomberg apart.  He writes:

And whether Bloomberg meant to suggest a real strike threat or an empty one, it seems obvious that such a move would be counterproductive. The prospect of police shirking their duty to protect the citizenry strengthens, not weakens, the case for private ownership of firearms and other tools of self-defense.

A police strike, as Bloomberg figured out a day late, is illegal in itself. Bloomberg’s strike would be for the purpose of curtailing the citizenry’s constitutional rights. The mayor urged an unlawful rebellion by government employees against their employers, the people. Since ours is a government of the people, established by the Constitution, this was nothing less than a call for insurrection.

Mayor of NYC, Mike Bloomberg, Goes on Anti-Gun Tirade

Well, we all knew this was coming.  The minute I heard of the shooting tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, I was just waiting for all the self-righteous gun haters to come out of the woodwork and use a horrible tragedy as an excuse to get on their soapboxes to spew their hatred on the 2nd Amendment.  I am sorry, but the appropriate response to this event is a heartfelt expression of sorrow to those that lost people and those that actually live in the state.

Instead, what I see are people that live far away from here, mostly in NYC, or some other know-it-all place where guns are already essentially banned (and of course there is no gun violence in NYC) using a tragedy to argue for gun restrictions.  People, this is the exact sort of emotional response that the government used to take away civil liberties since 9/11.  Some people just cannot help being sheep.

The guy that exemplifies everything I said above is wannabe King and current mayor of NYC, Mike Bloomberg.  Here is a guy that wants to ban salt and tell people what to eat and drink and how to breathe.  He is a control freak of the highest order.  In case you missed it, King Bloomberg recently set out to ban large sodas.

With all that said, let’s get to the point of this piece, which relates to comments Bloomberg made on a radio show this morning.  Here is the money quote:

No matter where you stand on the Second Amendment, no matter where you stand on guns, we have a right to hear from both of them concretely, not just in generalities – specifically what are they going to do about guns? I can tell you what we do here in New York. The State Legislature passed the toughest gun laws – some states may say no. That’s okay, what do you want to do? And maybe every Governor should stand up. But in the end, it is really the leadership at a national level, which is whoever is going to be President of the United States starting next January 1st – what are they going to do about guns?

No matter where you stand on the 2nd Amendment?  The Constitution remains the supreme law of the land and public servants still swear to defend it from “enemies foreign and domestic.”  So the only stand you can have would be to advocate the repeal of this Amendment (good luck) or do what NYC has already done in making it very difficult for citizens to obtain access to firearms (criminals clearly don’t have a problem).

As he mentions in the quote, New York already has very strict gun laws.  Alright, well you are the mayor of NYC pal.  Unless you are trying to set yourself up for a Presidential run (clearly), I suggest you focus on the financial terrorists that call your city home.  Nah, you’d rather evict OWS protestors in the middle of the night to protect your crony capitalist friends.  Mr. Bloomberg, you self-righteous, megalomaniac, please allow the people of Colorado to think for ourselves with regard to guns.  I live 35 miles away and you live 2,000 miles away.  Clean up your own garbage before you tell others how to live their lives.  It is precisely because of people like you, that people like me flee New York and will continue to.  Stop exploiting a tragedy to advance an agenda and mostly importantly leave us in Colorado alone.  We want nothing to do with you.

Finally, do you realize the Swiss are the most heavily armed people on the planet?  Clearly guns are not the problem, but a sick society, and you and your financial oligarch cronies are a much bigger threat to America than guns.
