NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!! I will have to leave the country if that little twerp becomes President. I would rather have Donald Trump. Honestly! Even Sara Palin with her shrieking voice that can peel paint off walls would be better than this guy!

A horrible little man who bought his way to an illegal third term and who hopes to buy his way into the presidency. Ain't gonna happen.
This is the same scoundrel who said the Tishman-Speyer "rape" of Stuy Town was a "private business matter".
This is the same thief who facilitated the closing of St. Vincent's Hospital so it could be converted into multimillion dollar condos by his avaricious real estate developer cronies.
This is the same heartless fool who said New York "loves its millionaires" and threw the middle class under the bus.
Mayor Mike, a royal f*ck you from the working people of New York City.
Fade into irrelevancy and count your billions.
Your day is gone.

AGREED! 1:20 and 1:51 and take your Brookfield girlfriend and Paul Weiss legacy law firm with you! If this man does to the country what he did to New York City the world is screwed.

I never thought anything could make me ever vote for Donald Trump. Until now.

1:20 PM: You hit the nail right on the head!!! If that little twerp were the Mayor today, he would be telling us to go see a Broadway show and go to a restaurant for dinner. As it is, the Broadway shows have been cancelled and the Mayor has told restaurants to close early so their employees can get home.

Oh, and that advice from Bloomturd came from him as he relaxed in Bermuda!

What a despicable, horrible little man. I certainly hope that the Presidency isn't up for sale because if it is, we are no better than a Third World Dictatorship. He would love to be our little Dictator-for-Life!

He just offered to pay a billion dollars for the Office of the President. For that alone he should never be in the Office. Then again Glenwood bought the Office of the Governor and the entire NY Senate.

Bloomberg basically said to the middle class in NYC: "Drop Dead!"

Maybe Robbie Speyer can run his campaign for him.

DiBlasio says Drop dead too. To the middle class and so many other present politicians. ?

Good points. And he's never been a real New Yorker. He's a Bostonite-Bermudian. And Boston sucks. Always.

It would seem when the real estate developers are profiting the People are losing. So maybe when the real estate developers are in a market correction and end their skyhigh hoarding profits, the People will stop being on the losing end of them. A few decades of the People profiting and the Real Estate developers losing would balance things nicely. Bad real estate markets to curb the hoarding of land for overdevelopment of empty luxury condos replacing small businessess and middle class homes. Honestly the indexes the news media spew about the real estate market getting better is a charade to make it look like the economy is doing better but it is a few developers hoarding making it look like there is a mass amoount of real estate moving as if People are buying and investing in the economy. The charade is a way they are rigging the economic indexes to make politicians look good but the reality is a very few are hoarding land and acquiring wealth to cover up the trillions that were stolen to wipe out the American Middle Class. This is not a conspiracy theory it is a fact well documented in history since the beginning of the century when some very bad housing policies were implemented at HUD at the turn of the century for real estate industry and some very bad policies were implemented so Wall Street could hoard and risk. The taxpayer bailout was to cover up the politician's dirty work. Real Estate needs to crash and burn as Wall Street did to have any sort of needed correction to help People get back on their feet and a global citizen revolt against another taxpayer bailout by governments for industries that are stealing and hoarding assets from People.

Hate on him all you want, but don't think this can't happen when the choice is between a communist and a circus clown.

Thank you 10:10am. I believe you are correct. I heard something along those lines on either CNBC or Bloomberg TV the other day. Yes, I watched the Toad's tv station. He has intelligent people working for him.

"between a communist"

Why don’t you then have the courage of your convictions and move out of this Communist/Socialist heavily regulated NYS/NYC workers’paradise called PCVST. Pataki/Blooomturd were the worst for PCVST tenants. I love how the Teabaggers let their inherent racism consume them (“take back our country”) which causes them to vote against their own self-interests, over and over again.

BTW, will you be getting or are you currently getting Social Security/Medicare? You Commie!

My problem with dB is he's not progressive enough. He did do this (RGB %s-see PDF link)and that was major but now it seems he's become, like they all do, a REBNY lapdog.

Bloomberg definitely has enough money to conduct opinion polls on the viability of his candidacy prior to declaring and filing the necessary paperwork. Hillary/Bernie supporters won't vote for him (he's either a corporate blowhard/too progressive/not progressive enough, depending who you ask). The Republican electorate pretty much consists of Trump supporters and then everyone else at this point. Trump supporters are collectively too angry for various reasons to shift to someone like Bloomberg, and Rubio/Cruz/Kasich/Bush/etc voters aren't interested in someone who wants to limit gun ownership and spends a lot of time discussing climate change. Bloomberg is a true fiscal conservative, but that alone won't get him votes. So, where would the votes come from?

Unknown said...

I like Bloomberg, he offers a moderate Republican view that has all but disappeared in the current era of polarization.

Cuomo praises a President Mike and de Blasio called Shelly a man of the most integrity.
They are delusional in cruel disregard to the People. Mike and Shelly did a lot of damage to a lot of people.

Because a "great deal" trumps personal dignity and self respect. That's why I (and so many in my situation) have spent their lives in the projects. We'll all see a race to the bottom if your boy Bernie gets in.

By the way, I won't be buying one of your pencils.....

What is being done if anything about the constant coming and going of students in certain apartments? The apartment above us has 3 girls and they seem to rotate out every few months or less. Moving shit in and out and creating noise, disturbance. Is this what we are now?

A Bloomberg run America would have corporations paying zero taxes to America. NY Pfizer is the biggest NY offender. Bloomberg is dangerous.

"By moving its headquarters to Cork, Ireland, Johnson Controls would become the latest major U.S. company to carry out a so-called tax-inversion after drug giant Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) structured such a deal with Irish peer Allergan Plc (AGN.N) last November.

While the tax benefits are not as profound as is the case of Pfizer's deal with Allergan, the news was enough to stir controversy among politicians in a U.S. presidential election year.

"I have a detailed and targeted plan to immediately put a stop to inversions and invest in the U.S., block deals like Johnson Controls and Tyco, and place an 'exit tax' on corporations that leave the country to lower their tax bill," Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in a statement.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton's opponent for the Democratic Presidential nomination, also criticized the deal, calling it a disaster for American taxpayers. Others saw it as an opportunity to also highlight what they argue are the weaknesses of the U.S. tax system."

"Wrong! People pay into SS/Medicare"

Typical right wing response. I was expecting this. Well guess what Sherlock, people on average receive more in benefits from Social Security/Medicare then they contribute. BTW, I do benefits for a living, this ink is correct.

“According to this calculation, past and current generations will pay $71.3 trillion in payroll taxes but will receive $93.4 trillion in benefits. Adjusting for past and future transfers from the federal Treasury, the difference between "paid-in" and "paid-out" works out to $21.6 trillion.”

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2013/feb/01/medicare-and-social-security-what-you-paid-what-yo/

Socialism baby. And what did your Saint Reagan say about the predecessor to Medicare? Let me refresh your memory.

“Reagan warns that if his listeners do not stop the proposed medical program, "behind it will come other government programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country until one day as Norman Thomas said we will wake to find that we have socialism." Under this scenario, Reagan says, "We are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."

So, again, when are you moving out of this Socialist/Commie workers’paradise called PCVST?

So you're a typical right wing hypocrite. BTW, I am not a Bernie supporter will pinch my nose and vote for Clinton. The alternatives on your side are a horror, especially the neo-con ones, who most of them are except Rand Paul but he has other major issues.

Guess you voted for Pataki who is the major reason this place is now a dorm shit hole.
