  • A Gun-Loving Farewell to Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg

    Bloomberg seems to be throwing in the towel. Apparently the financially savvy former Mayor of the Big Apple is saying “no mas” to continued attacks on the Second Amendment. With fully armed security, the East Coast Nannycrat is retreating to his private business at Bloomberg LP. Most gun rights activists are lifting a glass in celebration. A man of Bloomberg’s fame (and fortune) certainly deserves a personalized send-off into anonymity… And so, I offer this humble eulogy to his avid disrespect for my personal safety:Dear Ernst Stavro Blofeld Michael Bloomberg;It’s been fun, Mikey. Thanks for the laughs, the entertainment, and the...
  • Mayor Bloomberg Lies About Gun Deaths

    Mayor Bloomberg of New York has made a claim that 7 children are murdered with a gun every day of the year. (2555) For the purpose of determining children, the numbers are usually ages 1 through 14. But according to Center For Disease Control and Prevention's 2011 National Vital Statistics Report, the number of children murdered between the ages of 1 and 4 are 370 for the country. Murders of children 5 to 14 is 269. And that's all murders, not just gun deaths. Therefore the number of children killed would be less than 1.7 a day.

    It never fails. Paint a Democrat into a corner (or let him do it to himself) and his true colors will start to show. The moderate and reasonable Democrat Governor of New-New-York (AKA: Colorado) has finally come out forcefully against the recall elections of some anti-gun members of the State Legislature. The two Democrat State Senators are facing recall attempts after they supported the recent slew of gun-control measures that were ultimately signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper. These recall elections cost a small fortune and do nothing to improve democracy or representative government, Hickenlooper wrote in a letter...
  • Should Illegal Immigrants Be Sent To Detroit

    08/01/2013 9:55:07 AM PDT · by pinochet · 22 replies
    Last year, New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, suggested that illegal immigrants be sent to Detroit. See: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/bloomberg-make-immigrants-live-detroit-if-they-survive-7-years-make-them-citizens I think that this is a great idea. Because of America's highest crime rates, 65 percent of the population of Detroit left the city, so there is a lot of room in the city. The illegal immigrants should be forcibly transported to Detroit, and not receive any government welfare of any kind, and the government should block all exits from Detroit to prevent the immigrants from fleeing from Detroit for two years.

    Sunday on Meet the Press, Wayne LaPierre handed Mayor Bloomberg his head and it was a highlight to behold let me tell you. This clown of clowns went on the typical ego maniac diatribe about gun control for everyone. For starters, while David Gregory first interviewed Mayor Bloomberg, he replayed a previous tape of Bloomberg saying: The NRAs power is so vastly overrated. The public, when you do polls, they want this carnage to stop. If 20 small kids arent enough to stop it then, I dont know what is. After the clip, Bloomy with his fake smile says hes...

During what was supposed to be a debate about NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s various “public health” laws — indoor smoking bans, hidden cigarette displays by mandate, bans on large sugary beverages, etc. — Ann Coulter attempted to flip the “liberal nannying” logic upside-down by bringing up illegitimacy, sodomy, AIDS, and gay bathhouses. Suffice it to say the segment went off the rails. And did...

    Like the proverbial monkey typing for infinity and getting Shakespeare, Mayor Bloomberg's obsession with reforming New Yorkers' health has finally produced a brilliant ad campaign. Posters are popping up in subway stations and bus stops giving statistics about teen pregnancy that show cute little kids saying things like, "Honestly, Mom ... chances are he won't stay with you. What happens to me?" and "I'm twice as likely not to graduate high school because you had me as a teen." (Based on a recent CBS report, the kid could add, "Then again, I'm in the New York City public school system,...

    Take a big gulp, New York: Hizzoner is about to give you a pop. Nanny Bloomberg unleashes his ban on large sodas on March 12 and there are some nasty surprises lurking for hardworking families. Say goodbye to that 2-liter bottle of Coke with your pizza delivery, pitchers of soft drinks at your kids birthday party and some bottle-service mixers at your favorite nightclub. -snip- Typically, a pizzeria charges $3 for a 2-liter bottle of Coke. But under the ban, customers would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at a total cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount...

    According to New York Citys mayor Bloomberg, the governments highest duty is to promote healthy eating. His cause has been taken up by a growing number of politicians who want to ensure that all Americans are normal weight. It is more than a little disconcerting, then, to learn that the mounting number of federal, state, and local policies aimed at slimming our waists may be misguided. The results from a careful literature review recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that people who are overweight and even a bit obese actually live longer than normal weight...

    New Yorks penal code makes it a felony to practice medicine without a license. I suspect, however, that one potential defendant who is proposing to do just that, will escape prosecution. Meet Mayor Bloomberg, M.D. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg never attended medical school, did not complete a hospital residency, and never has been admitted to the medical profession. Yet this public official whose ire in recent years has targeted firearms, salt content, fatty foods, and large-sized soft drinks is now moving to dictate how doctors should be allowed to issue prescription drugs for their patients. Bloombergs...

    The nagging nanny of New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is at it again, engaging in his favorite activity, telling his citizens what they can consume. This time, the Mayor is targeting prescription painkillers in the citys emergency rooms. By mayoral edict, he will reduce the supply of certain pain medication in the emergency rooms owned by the city.

    If you see Kris Kristofferson around, please tell him thanks for writing the line "freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose" in his song "Me and Bobby McGee." That thought is sage and very appropriate for America in the year 2013. In California, Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law an astounding 876 new mandates. They all took effect last week. Now, in the Golden State, you cannot do the following: --Hunt a bear using trained dogs. Untrained canines are OK, I guess. And how would the authorities be able to tell? Would the dog have to...

    Hurricane-relief Guardsmen tossed out of armory - for Victoria's Secret show The Victorias Secret show must go on even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform. Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattans Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted to make room for Victorias Secret models in anticipation of Wednesdays runway show. About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit. But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event,...

    Mayor Bloombergs Response to Sandy Leaves Many New Yorkers Out in the Cold The mayor has brilliantly stage-managed his handling of the storm, but outside the citys affluent precincts numerous angry residents feel abandoned by his administration as days have passed and help has remained distant, writes Harry Siegel. Are you from OEM? Or FEMA? No, were from Brooklyn. That was the exchange when, after nearly six hours, the volunteer group I spent Sunday with finally managed to deliver supplies flashlights, blankets, winter jackets, baby supplies, and pet foodto Staten Islanders whod been rocked by Hurricane Sandy. On television, New...

    Bloomberg kept National Guard out of NYC because they had guns? POSTED AT 4:31 PM ON NOVEMBER 4, 2012 BY JAZZ SHAW New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been on the receiving end of a firestorm of criticism lately, particularly for his ham handed handling of the Hurricane Sandy recovery. But this story is almost too stupid to check. Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitzs impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn arguing that approving the Beeps request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state....

The ugly mask of hatred and deep-seated bias against constitutionally guaranteed rights is in no way limited to just the corporate owned press and media. It is also flourishing among the Fascist politico cadre. Lets open the ball with ABC News.

    CONGRESS ENACTED the first federal minimum wage in 1938. A provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act, it covered about 6 million workers and set a wage floor of 25 cents per hour. It also cost a lot of people their jobs. The Labor Department reported that as many as 50,000 employees, mostly poor Southern blacks, were thrown out of work within two weeks of the law's taking effect. In the months that followed, the carnage spread. "African Americans in the tobacco industry were particularly hard hit," wrote David Bernstein in his 2001 history of labor regulations and black employment....

    Telly Hudgins has been stopped and frisked by the police too many times to count in the Brownsville, New York, public housing project where he lives. One occasion sticks in his memory. "I had my pajamas on and my slippers on and I'm emptying my garbage" at the trash chute. "They asked me for ID to prove I lived there. Who walks around in their pajamas with ID?" asked the black, 35-year-old counselor for the mentally handicapped. He says he complained about the search and was issued a summons for disorderly conduct. Deborah Richardson, 60, a black postal worker, has...

    Coal today may seem of little relevance to many residents of New York City or other American urban centers. It long ago ceased to fuel the furnaces of their homes and apartment buildings in winter. But long after it disappeared from the uses most visible to city dwellers, coal is still the critical fuel behind the everyday functions of their lives. Across the U.S., for more than a century, coal has remained quietly at work providing in recent years nearly half the electricity that lights urban buildings and streets, keeps air conditioners humming on hot days and energizes computers...
