Courageously using his wealth to shield the condo owners and venture capitalists who have used my humble hometown of NYC (less than 24 square miles in total) to whack out more money than GOD Himself could yield in tolls for a century. The COMMISSIONS from condo sales could equal the GDP of some small countries.
He brought up Vietnam. And then patiently explaining how labor would move to "the lowest salary place" and thus people HERE would have to live with NOTHING according to his billionaire visionary bullshit worldview.
I would like to see Mayor Mike over in Vietnam. As opposed to patiently explaining the realities of me getting screwed and him getting rich. And somehow that is my fault and decision. I want him hunched up to his ass in the jungle. Personally I would prefer to be on the hippie side. I will take the hippies eight days a week vs. Bloomberg Corp.
And that whole COMBINE stuff from "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is real. For real.
He took their gasoline, seized their tents, then had hundreds of them arrested for disorderly conduct and other offenses.
And now, Mayor Bloomberg has turned to dismissing the Occupy Wall Street protesters as a disjointed mob without a clear message.
“This is not the Vietnam era when you had 400,000 people on the Mall saying ‘let’s get out of Vietnam,’” Bloomberg told MSNBC Tuesday. “This is more a frustration kind of protest. They were chanting, ‘We don’t know what we want, but we want it now.’”
Bloomberg then went on to to suggest that the protesters are also ill-informed.
“They don’t know how to fix this,” he said. “They want their government to fix it. They don’t even know what the problem is, much less how to fix it, but they know that things aren’t working well and you see that around the world.”
The protesters do bring different points of view and a variety of causes to their movement — but they’ve never been known to chant that they don't know what they want.
Bloomberg, who made his fortune on Wall Street, has never had much sympathy for the movement. He went on to say that he understands the protesters’ frustrations.
“Partly it’s technology that’s automating repetitive jobs,” he said. “Partly it’s globalization that lets labor move to the lowest salary place, the lowest cost of labor.
“Partly it is just we’ve been overspending all around the world, monies we don't have, and now we’re going to have to pay the piper. So if you have to raise tuition in a school, the kids object to that, but somebody’s got to pay for the schools. If we have to stop some of the services, we just can’t afford them anymore, so it is a general frustration and it comes out in many ways.”
