There are plenty of billionaires in this world nowadays, but exactly how they got to that level of financial comfort may surprise you. They are not all the flashy, big spenders we see on many Hollywood tv specials. In fact, many of them attribute their success to living quite frugally. Here are some of the best MONEY saving tips from some of the world’s most wealthy people. 1) Michael Bloomberg: Net Worth: $34.3 Billion Stick with what works best for you. Michael Bloomberg is well known as one of the most controversial mayors of New York City, and majority share holder of Bloomberg L.P., an international financial information company. But one thing most people don’t know about Mayor Bloomberg is the fact that for the past 10 years he has only owned two pairs of work shoes. They are both black loafers, and provide the most comfort and functionality for the billionaire. He knows that they are what works best for him and chooses to save his MONEY for other things rather than spend a small fortune on shoe ...

On this week, Mayor Bloomberg looks back on how New York City has progressed in the last 12 years
For all his faults, a remarkable record. Last leader to be able to cite so many great stats upon leaving office was President Clinton. From Mayor Bloomberg's final radio address: “When I first took the oath of office, few people would have believed that murder could be cut in half; that high school graduation rates could increase by 42 percent; that 22 of the state’s top 25 elementary and middle schools could be located in New York City, versus zero in 2001; that the number of people living in Lower Manhattan could more than double; that the number of jobs could hit a record high, with most of them created outside Manhattan; that our life expectancy could grow by three years; that we could be the only large city in the country to experience no increase in poverty; that we could create the largest affordable housing program any city has ever undertaken; that we could add more than 850 new acres of parkland and revitalize much of our waterfront; that one million trees could be planted; that our air coul ...

"Here in New York City we have a new mayor, Bill De Blasio. He's 6 feet, 7 inches tall and his wife is a former *** She's a former *** although she can be called back to active duty on a moment's notice.

Thursday is Thanksgiving and that means a million people will line the streets of New York City all waiting for Santa and his tiny helper. - Mayor Bloomberg.
New York City is going to get a new mayor. It's between some tall white guy and some short white guy. That's all I know. The tall white guy is really tall. He's 6'7". This is a jumbo mayor. He said if he's elected, Mayor Bloomberg can live in his pocket. Mayor Bloomberg is a tiny guy. Mayor Bloomberg has been mayor of New York City for 12 years. We'll all miss Mayor Bloomberg. But he says 12 years is plenty. That's three terms. He now just wants to settle down and spend more time with his money.
I am so glad that upstate New Yorkers have the honor of paying so much money and losing so much water to the urbanites in New York City. I am sure NYC appreciates the sacrifice. Eight miles of water: underground with Manhattan's new aquatic lifeline After over 40 years, New York has a new water tunnel to serve its millions By Dante D'Orazio on October 19, 2013 10:00 am Email 11Comments REUTERS/Mike Segar New York Water Tunnel. New Yorkers will proudly tell you that the city has some of the finest tap water that you can find. But for nearly a century, all of Manhattan has been served by a single water tunnel that hasn’t been shut down for maintenance since it first opened in 1917. That’s no longer the case. The city has finally completed work on a water tunnel designed to provide some redundancy to Manhattan’s lifeline. The tunnel runs 500 feet below the surface and is 12 feet in diameter. The section activated this week runs for 8.5 miles, serving all of Manhattan below Central Park. Ten separate sh ...
Dear Fans, Today is Special Election Day in New Jersey. Please make sure that you go vote for the pro-gun Steve Lonegan to fill the seat vacated by the deceased Senator Frank Lautenberg. Lonegan supports the Second Amendment and wants to repeal the anti-gun ObamaCare law. His opponent, Cory Booker is a long-time gun control fanatic who wants to bring New York City-style gun control to New Jersey and wants to keep ObamaCare in place. As you know, the ObamaCare gun ban could result in millions of Americans losing their gun rights -- just as more than 150,000 military veterans have already seen their medical information used against them. Cory Booker is a proud of his record supporting Mayors Against Illegal Guns, an organization that’s nothing more than an outfit for Mayor Bloomberg to push his anti-gun views on the rest of the country. For these reasons and more, today’s Special Election is extremely important. Many observers have predicted a low turnout for the Special Election today. This means your ...
Paul Mccartney played a surprise concert Thursday in Times Square in New York City; McCartney played songs from his latest album “New,” out on Tuesday. Paul was going to play “When I’m 64,” which Mayor Bloomberg is okay with, as long as it’s not a 64-ounce soda.

I asked students in my urban envir...
MAYOR BLOOMBERG OUTLAWS LARGE SPOONS… Legislation just passed today in New York City outlawing “large spoons holding more than 2 oz.” Existing inventories of all large spoons in all retail outlets will have to be returned to the manufacturer. It has also become a punishable felony to have in your home/car/office any large spoon that will hold more than 2 oz. NYC Police will go through extensive training on how to measure the oz. level of spoons. The reasoning behind this legislation is the same as the restriction on large soda pop purchases (makes people fat), so large spoons must also make people fat - just like ten round magazine clips are more dangerous than three, seven round magazine clips. By the way – for those on the Left side of the fence, I’m only joking.

I, and other members of the City Council, have been working closely with the plaintiff's counsel and the Center for Constitutional Rights, to oppose any stay pending the appeal, and to urge the Second Circuit Court to uphold the District Court decision. The court's decision, along with the Inspector General bill I recently passed with my Council colleagues, will go a long way to ending the unconstitutional use of stop and frisk in New York City. Mayor Bloomberg's attempt to block the court ruling is simply unacceptable, and insults . ...

Quinn, announced an agreement on its on its eighth consecutive, on time, balanced budget that preserves fundamental city services despite significant challenges caused by federal sequestration cuts. “This budget is a huge win for the hardworking people I serve in Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach and Bensonhurst,” Councilman Vincent J. Gentile said. “Once again we were able to keep all of our firehouses, senior centers, libraries and after-school programs open without raising taxes. Together we were able to agree on a plan that is fiscally responsible but also proves that we will never sacrifice the essential services that make New York City the greatest city in the world.” “I want to thank Speaker Ch ...
New York POLICE SUED OVER SURVEILLANCE OF MUSLIMS World | Updated today at 06:01 AM New York (REUTERS) - The New York Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the New York Police Department (NYPD) over its surveillance of Muslim communities, accusing the police of trampling on religious freedoms and constitutional guarantees of equality. The surveillance by the NYPD's intelligence division has extended beyond New York City's five boroughs into neighbouring New Jersey and other nearby states. The police department says that surveillance of Muslims is legal under an earlier federal court order. The lawsuit is the latest skirmish in an ongoing battle between the NYPD and civil liberties advocates over the department's aggressive policing tactics - including its stop-and-frisk practices, which are the subject of a separate federal lawsuit. The lawsuit, filed in United States (US) District Court for the Eastern District of New York, in Brooklyn, seeks to put an end to the NYPD's surveillance of ...
THE LATEST FROM MAYOR/NANNY Michael Bloomberg Just when you thought it could not get any worse, Nanny Bloomberg is on a new crusade. After spending 12M dollars trying unsuccessfully to ban guns, trying to ban sugar sodas, and trying to ban smoking, now the Nanny wants to pass a law that forces some elaborate recycling restrictions on the citizens of New York. It is wild. He wants citizens to have to separate their scrap food into multiple food groups, with the aim of trying to re-compost all of it by each group. Never mind that his own people have told him this will not work because New York is far too densely populated and far to vertical for this to succeed, the "Nanny knows all" Mayor Bloomberg wants to force this by law. Can anyone imagine what a compost for all of New York City (population 8.2M) would look like? It would probably take up half of Long Island. You really wonder just when the people of New York will tire of this *** and send him, and all of his money, off to retirement. Maybe the N ...

Thugs are MADE IN AMERICA, manufactured by the policies of men like Donald Trump and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, both of whom are billionaires who neglect their own roles in the creation of urban terror.
New York's Mayor Bloomberg has been at the forefront of the attack on our gun rights. He sinks millions of dollars in his efforts to brainwash the American people into thinking guns are evil. His gun control policies continue to fail and recent failures show more of the same. Six dead and more than two dozen shootings recently in New York City is a sign that Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun agenda - which he hopes to spread across the nation with his big bucks campaigns to buy away the gun rights of American citizens - is beginning to fail. Michael Bloomberg wants to use his wealth to buy Big Apple gun control all over the country. Despite reports that New York City violence is actually down from last year, over the weekend, that city accounted for half of the slayings that Seattle has seen so far for the entire first five months of the year. Before Bloomberg spends another million dollars trying to spread his program of gun prohibition, the mayor ought to concentrate on his own turf and leave the rest ...
Bill Cosby: A plague called apathy By Bill Cosby Last Updated: 1:15 AM, June 9, 2013 Posted: 10:29 PM, June 8, 2013 He was the New York City dad we all wish we had Cliff Huxtable, the strict, funny and understanding father on “The Cosby Show,” played for eight years by actor Bill Cosby. Now 75, Cosby continues to be a father figure, speaking out about the importance of personal responsibility. He’s on a concert tour (he comes to White Plains in September) and has a new book, “I Didn’t Ask to be Born (But I’m Glad I Was).” Last week, he met with reporter Stacy Brown to share his thoughts about Bloomberg’s health crusades, children without manners and parents who need to be more involved. But the biggest issue facing us today, he argues, is apathy. In terms of health, two things stand out that Mayor Bloomberg has jumped into to find some kind of remedy that will help cut back on illness — the abuse of sodas and tobacco. No 1: Smoking — and a big howl went up from people who want to smoke ...
Well, well, well, imagine this? SB221 got a DO PASS from Assembly Judiciary this morning. It is time to light up the switchboard at the Legislature, unless of course you would like Universal Background Checks here in Nevada. This needs to be voted upon in the Assembly, and it will come to a vote before sine die, because Mayor Bloomberg dictates how the Democrats in our legislature have to vote. We know Governor Brian Sandoval will veto it, but lets get the Dems on record for kissing the mayor of New York City's lower posterior end. Last time I checked, Assembly and Senate Democrats, this is Nevada not Manhattan...unless of course, you are in Manhattan, Nevada.

Thought I'd share a little story to you young guys thinking about college! Mike Bloomberg: Skip college, become a plumber New York City's billionaire mayor tells students that most of them should avoid a costly degree and instead learn a well-paying trade. Mike Bloomberg, the outspoken mayor of New York City and the ultrawealthy founder of the financial data and media company that bears his name, is turning his attention to another of society's woes: the rising cost of a college education. Bloomberg, known for his battle against large, sugary sodas, offered some advice to students during his weekly radio show Friday, according to the New York Daily News. "The people who are going to have the biggest problem are college graduates who aren't rocket scientists, if you will, not at the top of their class," Bloomberg said. "Compare a plumber to going to Harvard College -- being a plumber, actually for the average person, probably would be a better deal." Bloomberg, himself a graduate of Johns Hopkins Universit ...

OMG, this is the great actress and model, our very own Barbara Woods. I found her fresh out of UGA with a drama degree and we hired her at Jeryls to take my place at Happy Hour when I moved to nights. After some training from me, she came in a 9 in the morning and practiced until we opened at 11 AM for quite a number of weeks. When she was ready she took over my Happy Hour shift and became one rockin' sockin' Disco DJ in the same top 40 radio stye that I used and still use to this day. She even made the cover of the RMR DJ magazine. She eventually moved to New York and after many more commercials finally settled into a production job at HBO. Today she works for Mayor Bloomberg in New York City government and she still has that amazing smile and is as stunningly beautiful as ever. Everyone who has ever met her loves her to pieces. Can believe we found this. Now if only we could find a copy of my Georgia School of Bartending commercial which ran like 17 times a night on WTBS TV Channel 17 for like ...

"Remember when Mayor Bloomberg said a few weeks ago, "Nobody's sleeping on the streets"? Well... At that time, the Coalition of the Homeless furiously responded by telling reporters that there was "no accurate measurement of New York City's unsheltered homeless population, and recent city surveys significantly underestimate the number of unsheltered homeless New Yorkers." So, almost immediately, City Hall released a quick statement, arguing that its main vocalist had misquoted himself and meant to say that he was simply rounding down (... to zero). And then, yesterday, this became news. Source: Coalition for the Homeless released a report to the press, stating that the population of those living in shelters has topped 50,000 for the first time since Great Depression. The number is 50,135, on average, to be exact. And a little less than half of that number consists of children."
I wanted to share this interesting blog by Rick Moran as one of my notes.  My hope is that Mayor Bloomberg will see this and actually change his tune before his own glass castle comes crashing down.   Bloomberg: US has 'infinite amount of money' by, Rick Moran Sometimes, a comment by a politician is very revealing of their true feelings. Such is the case with this offhand comment by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Although the national media has been relentlessly focused on this deadline, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it will only affect New York City if the so-called "sequestration" continues for a significant length of time. "It depends on how long," Mr. Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show with John Gambling. "If it lasts a few weeks, no. If it does, yeah. We get 10 or 12 percent of our budget from the Federal Government, not all of that is going to be cut back, but there would be effects-not good effects. But in the context of, 'Is anything going to change tomorrow? Are we going ...
He's the dummy. Mayor Bloomberg: Telecommuting Is Dumb 03/01/2013 5:50 PM Mayor Bloomberg, a billionaire former CEO, said on his weekly radio show Friday that he agrees with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer that working from home is not productive. "I've always said, telecommuting is one of the dumber ideas I've ever heard," said the media mogul mayor. "Yes, there are some things you can do at home," he went on. "But having a chat line is not the same thing as standing at the water cooler. And standing at the water cooler is where you get a lot of ideas and information and it's a euphemism for a lot of interpersonal dialogue." Mayer recently announced that employees at Yahoo will no longer be able to work from home, citing the need for more communication and collaboration within the company's office. Bloomberg stepped down from his media company, Bloomberg LP, to run for mayor in 2001. As a billionaire with multiple homes outside New York City, he has defended his right to work remotely, without disclosing his whe ...
ACS CAN Lauds Court Decision Backing NYC Ban on Sale of Flavored Tobacco New York, NY - February 27, 2013 – “The U.S. District Court ruling that upheld New York City’s ban on the sale of flavored tobacco products is an important win in the fight against cancer. Fruit and candy flavored tobacco products are one of the most predatory tobacco industry tactics--aimed at luring a new generation of youth into life-long addiction.” “Mayor Bloomberg, Speaker Christine Quinn and the New York City Council deserve high praise for their bold work to ban these dangerous products. ACS CAN urges Governor Cuomo and the state Legislature to expand this important public health protection to all of New York State.” Each day more than 3,500 kids under the age of 18 try their first cigarette, and more than 900 become established smokers. It is a top priority to prevent Big Tobacco from recruiting youth to join the more than 400,000 people who die each year from tobacco related disease. New York City was the f ...

Green guide: Best places in the Big Apple for eco-friendly living New York City has never been considered one of the greenest cities, but we’re getting there. We have less pollution than Los Angeles or Beijing; now the Big Apple has begun in the past few years to improve its air quality and pollution levels. A Parks Department initiative spearheaded by Mayor Bloomberg promises public greenspace within 10 minutes of every New Yorker's front door. A controversial Dapartment of Transportation initiative has increased the number of bike lanes borough-wide. The environmental impact of these political moves may not be felt for years, but both well help New Yorkers breathe easier. With the bustling, car-filled streets of Manhattan among the city's most polluted areas, green-seekers should head to the outer boroughs, where suburban-like neighborhoods put green-living first and have plenty of park space and less air pollution. Not surprisingly, Staten Island, with beaches, parks and backyards, has more eco-frien ...

Central Terminal in New York City is celebrating its 100th anniversary. More than a landmark and a transportation hub, Grand Central has become an icon of the modern era, a symbol of a city always in motion. One hundred years is a long time to be in business. Consider that when the station opened cars were still something of a novelty; the television set hadn't yet been invented; and the first coast-to-coast telephone system was still two years away. In this slide show, explore some of the history of Grand Central over its 10 decades of service. This photo shows the terminal shortly after its opening. CORBIS IMAGES Grand Central officially opened its door on Feb. 1, 1913, with the first train leaving the station at 12:01 a.m. on Feb. 2. The station's opening attracted a crowd of 150,000 people its first day in service. One hundred years later, crowds are again gathering to celebrate Grand Central's centennial with a ceremony with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and live performances. GENDREAU COLLECTION/BETTMANN/ ...

When the latest New York magazine cover story on leading New York City mayoral candidate Christine Quinn came out this week, it quoted current Mayor Michael Bloomberg as telling a reporter to "look at the *** on her" while gesturing toward a woman at a holiday party.
“I belief for example that when Washington DC passed a law that nobody could have a gun except law enforcement and it was strict down by the United States Supreme Court that we should overrule the United States Supreme Court with a Constitutional Amendment. I don’t belief in our society we should have guns.” This short interview with the former Mayor of New York City of perfectly illustrates the mindset of the gun grabbers as they push to take away the ability for individual Americans to protect themselves in favor of a group think collectivist mentality of depending on authorities for your every need. Dianne Feinstein – Career Gun Grabber Senator Dianne Feinstein, the woman behind the incoming semi automatic gun ban, has been a gun grabber from the onset who has herself publicly stated that her actual goal is the confiscation of all guns throughout the country, a literal full-scale ban. “I hope and trust that in the next session of Congress there will be sustained and thoughtful debate about Am ...

New York City residents who are still smokers are an unloved bunch in the Big Apple. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made it his mission to ban cigarettes from public places, including restaurants, bars, parks, beaches, and even Times Square. And if hizzoner has his way, apartments will be his next smok...
Mayor Michael Bloomberg comparing the Teachers Unions to the NRA. *** Saying these are places where the people who belong to the groups don't agree with the higher ups? Well as a NRA member I agree with most of the things the NRA does, if I didn't why would I be part of the group? Michael Bloomberg needs to be out of New York City office.
It is so simple even, ultra liberal, Michael Moore gets it ..."So here's my little bit of holiday cheer for you: These gun massacres aren't going to end any time soon. I'm sorry to say this. But deep down we both know it's true. That doesn't mean we shouldn't keep pushing forward – after all, the momentum is on our side. I know all of us – including me – would love to see the president and Congress enact stronger gun laws. We need a ban on automatic AND semiautomatic weapons and magazine clips that hold more than 7 bullets. We need better background checks and more mental health services. We need to regulate the ammo, too. But, friends, I would like to propose that while all of the above will certainly reduce gun deaths (ask Mayor Bloomberg – it is virtually impossible to buy a handgun in New York City and the result is the number of murders per year has gone from 2,200 to under 400), it won't really bring about an end to these mass slayings and it will not address the core problem we have. Connec ...
Just skimmed over an article about former Congressman Gabby Giffords will be making a trip to Conn. I am amazed at what opportunist politicians/former politicians are. Before a funeral could held for any of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting liberal politicians stepped up talking about gun control. Yes, it is a tragedy that so many innocent children lost their lives that day. In the wake of this tragedy I took some comfort in the fact that the children were under the age of accountability, and they returned returned to the presence of a kind and loving Father in Heaven. Since the shooting there has been countless articles on whatever website you prefer to use to read the news of the day. Mayor Bloomberg of New York City, has even said 19 year are not mature/responsible eough to own a gun. What an interesting comment since the U.S. Armed forces seems to think they are old enough to put a fully automatic weapon in their hands. Moreover, Mr. Obama doesn't seem to have a problem se ...
New York's tourism reaches new highs, according to Mayor Bloomberg and NYC and Co's George Fertitta, the city's tourism guru: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta announced today that New York City welcomed a record 52 million visitors in 2012, a new all-time high and a 2.1 percent increase over 2011. Visitors to the city generated an estimated $55.3 billion in economic impact to the city’s economy, with direct spending reaching $36.9 billion. New York City continues to be the premier United States travel destination, with an overseas market share at a record high of 33 percent.
MAYOR BLOOMBERG AND Police Commissioner Kelly ANNOUNCE 2012 SETS ALL-TIME RECORD FOR FEWEST MURDERS AND FEWEST SHOOTINGS IN NEW York City HISTORY Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly today announced that new all-time lows will be set this year for the fewest number of homicides and fewest numbers of shootings in recorded New York City history. As of this morning, there have been 414 homicides in 2012 – the previous record low was 471 homicides in 2009. The number of murders has dropped by 19 percent in comparison to 2011 and declined by 35 percent since the start of the Bloomberg Administration. There has been a record low 1,353 shootings this year – the previous low for shootings was 1,420 in 2009. Shootings have decreased by 8.5 percent so far this year compared to 2011 and 14.5 percent since 2001. Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Kelly made the announcement today at the Police Department Recruit Graduation Ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. “The number of ...
iPhones and iPads rule the roost in the mobile market and have captured the US market like no other device. The devices are popular not only among tech enthusiasts, but also among thieves in New York, or so the city's mayor believes. As crime rate in New York City rose in 2012, the Mayor Michael Bloomberg pointed out the reason behind this surge - Apple's iPhones and iPads. In his weekly radio show, the city's mayor said that the uptick in the number of iPhones and iPads being stolen was responsible for the marginal increase in the total number of crimes in 2012, reports The New York Times. The Press Secretary of Mayor Bloomberg said that if the incidents related to iPhones and iPads were taken out of the equation, the crime rate for 2012 would fall in comparison to last year. The annual crime index compiled by the city consists of acts like murders, grand larcenies and robberies. Till December 24, 2012, New York Police Department (NYPD) saw 3,484 more crimes than they witnessed in 2011. However, 3,890 mo ...
Just 15 years ago, New York City had 35,000 phone booths. Thanks to cell phones it now has just 11,000, most of which serve little purpose for anyone but Clark Kent. Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to change that. In a contest that it's billing as the first of its kind...
In a speech in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, Mayor Bloomberg outlined the long-term challenges posed by severe weather and detailed how the city will tackle them. Former Vice President Al Gore introduced the Mayor and said, “Among mayors of this nation and this world, he stands out. I don't know of anybody who has done more.” Some of the key points from the Mayor’s speech include: · New York City cannot solve the problems associated with climate change on its own but can lead the way, as it has been both locally and globally. · Since the Mayor launched the nation’s first comprehensive sustainability plan in 2007, PlaNYC, the City’s carbon footprint has been reduced by 16%. In addition, the City has taken major steps toward adapting to climate change, including through revisions to the building code, adoption of green roofs, and restoration of wetlands. · To prepare New York City for future extreme weather events, the Mayor began by directing Deputy Mayors Cas Holloway and Linda Gibbs to con .. ...
This morning, Mike Bloomberg delivered an address on shaping New York City's future. The Mayor gave our work on climate through our Beyond Coal Campaign a shoutout! Thank you EVERYONE who has joined with us to move Beyond Coal!
First, we lose Twinkies, and now, say goodbye to a New York City landmark that I pass by almost every week in Manhattan’s Theater District. Patrons of the Stage Deli were shocked Friday when they came in for the famous giant sandwiches named after Broadway stars, only to find it shut tight. There was a handwritten sign on the door, reading, “Thanks for 75 years.” The owners say the Stage Deli had been struggling for some time, and they just couldn’t afford an upcoming rent increase. It’s just the latest New York business to fall victim to the costs of ever-rising taxes and regulations being passed down the line. But then, it was probably only a matter of time before Mayor Bloomberg started ordered them to stop putting so much meat on their sandwiches anyway.

Why does Mayor Bloomberg, the mayor of New York City, care so much about a representative in Los Angles?
I GUESS US CITY EMPLOYEES CAN KISS THOSE OVERDUE RAISES GOODBYE Mayor Bloomberg estimates Hurricane Sandy inflicted $19B in damage to city Hurricane Sandy inflicted $19 billion worth of damage on New York City -- with less than half covered by expected reimbursements, Mayor Bloomberg estimated today. Bloomberg said that after payments from private insurance and FEMA, the city will need $9.8 billion from Washington to address what will be the biggest budget gap in its history. "The city will struggle in the long term unless expedited federal funding is supplied," the mayor wrote in a letter to the city's congressional delegation. The mayor is headed to Washington on Wednesday to make a personal plea for the money. The city's estimates were: * $4.8 billion in uninsured private losses * $3.8 billion in insured private losses * $4.5 billion in losses and costs incurred by city agencies * $5.7 billion in lost "gross city product" * $200 million for the Army Corps of Engineers Bloomberg said that the Transporta ...

Diane M. George shared U.S. Navy's photo: U.S. Navy is ready to assist New Yorkers. They are waiting for the call, from FEMA or NYC leadership. Mayor Bloomberg doesn't want any gun-toting National Guardsmen, so I'm not surprised that he's refusing Navy assistance too. Spokesman comment on 10/31: "Right now, the only official tasking the Navy has received is to provide contract support in obtaining industrial size pumps for the Army Corps of Engineers’ efforts to dewater areas of New York City. It is true that the Navy is moving ships to be closer to the areas affected by the hurricane; however these ships have not been officially tasked to provide support."
The words of (I) Mayor Bloomberg say it all. The good, bad and ugly of both choices and the final reasons for his endorsement of Obama. A Vote for a President By Michael R. Bloomberg - Nov 1, 2012 The devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York City and much of the Northeast -- in lost lives, lost homes and lost business -- brought the stakes of Tuesday’s presidential election into sharp relief. The floods and fires that swept through our city left a path of destruction that will require years of recovery and rebuilding work. And in the short term, our subway system remains partially shut down, and many city residents and businesses still have no power. In just 14 months, two hurricanes have forced us to evacuate neighborhoods -- something our city government had never done before. If this is a trend, it is simply not sustainable. Our climate is changing. And while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not be the result of it, the r ...
Climate change was not much of an issue in the presidential campaign until Hurricane Sandy hit New York City, rattling Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorses President Barack Obama for re-election. The question is why? Because the stock market crashed under President Bush and unemployment shot up to over 8%. When President Obama took office the stock Market had dropped so much that we were in a recession when he took office. It bottomed out 6 weeks into his Presidency and over the next 3 years and 7 months the stock market has gone up almost 100%. Unemployment topped out at just over 10% just barely after President Obama took office and since then it has gone down to 7.9% and is dropping slowly. This is because President Obama has worked hard to turn around the financial crisis that President George W. Bush left him with. You can not take this away from him and Mayor Bloomberg shocked Wall Street by Endorsing President Obama over Mitt Romney. Mayor Bloomberg realized that President Obama did wonders for New York City when they desperately needed it and took them from a deep bear market to a charging Bull market in ...
Yesterday I liked Mayor Bloomberg for endorsing Obama, but today I have to doubt his sanity. There are 20 death on Staten Island and an unknown number of people still under the rubble of their homes that nobody has reached yet. Still, Bloomberg is making a major effort to have the New York City Marathon start on the Verrazano Bridge this coming Sunday, disrupting the search and rescue efforts and using resources that should be used to save lives. How crazy is that?
I realize many people out there, including the Mayor of New York City, are blaming the awful destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy on man-made climate change, i.e. "global warming". But think of this: Have there not always been hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods, heat waves, cold waves, and other destructive weather? If man made climate change is responsible for Hurricane Sandy, what do we blame - or who do we blame - for last summer's drought where there were no tropical cyclones in the Atlantic for weeks? And many of those that did form, didn't amount to much. I recommend everyone to read the editorials in the Thursday, November 1 edition of the Wall Street Journal to get an alternative perspective to that offered by Mayor Bloomberg. You know who he is: The one who's convinced its government's job to tell us how big a Soft Drink we should be allowed to have.
Post-Sandy: Night 3. New Yorkers are walking miles home from work while angry New York drivers are waiting in line for gas at the pump. Much has changed. On the plus side, fishing in Subway tunnels has lowered the skyrocketing price of seafood substantially. It's a complicated, yet tasty predicament. Meanwhile, Mayor Bloomberg has decided our only hope to save the economy is importing frail European and West African long-distance athletes to remind us how good we have it. While walking home I saw Anderson Cooper trudging through the streets. It wasn't until midway through his interviewing me that I realized he was just asking for the time so he could race home and catch a rerun of AC:360. I am a survivor living in New York City. I am broadcasting on all social media frequencies. I will be at the South Street Seaport every weekday. If you are out there... if anyone is out there... I can provide food, I can provide shelter, I can provide security. If there's anybody out there... anybody... please. You are n ...
now for a little bit of levity from Jimmy Kimmel: Jimmy Kimmel Live! Michael Brown, the former director of FEMA who was forced to resign after Hurricane Katrina, has criticized the president. He said Obama may have acted too quickly this time — instead of taking the wait-and-do-nothing approach that worked so well during Katrina. That is an interesting point coming from a former FEMA director and current Applebee's employee of the week. Mayor Bloomberg announced that all cars coming into New York City via the bridges must have a minimum of three people in them. Unless one of the people is very, very fat — in which case, two people but no sodas. Unfortunately, the Brooklyn Nets had to cancel their big home opener tomorrow night. Good news is, if the Nets can keep this up for eight more months, they could have their first undefeated season.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy the people of Haiti are returning the favor of disaster relief by sending supplies to New York City. In a statement to the press Mayor Bloomberg thanked them for the effort. The slightly used tarp, flashlight with a missing battery, cheese stockpiled from World War Two and the quart of distilled water will all come in handy. He was LESS thrilled by the arrival of Sean Penn who apparently had to be bound and gagged to leave the poverty ridden island. Witness's said Sean could be heard mumbling "My work here is not done."
Ok its really a major diaster here in New York City - schools are closed for a 3 day and perhaps for the rest of the week. Mass Transit will be down for 3 to 5 days same for Con Edison (if we're lucky). This from Mayor Bloomberg.news conference.
Pets are one of the reasons people do not evacuate. Looks like Mayor Bloomberg thought of that. Good for him! Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Sunday ordered the evacuation of 375,000 people from low-lying areas in New York City in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy, signifying officials' growing concern about the severity of the storm and its impact on the five boroughs. The city opened 72 evacuation centers in public schools on Sunday morning. Pets are welcome.
I just saw Mayor Bloomberg of New York City on television. I have to tell you in the coverage I saw he is taking Hurricane Sandy way too casually. He doesn't seem to take weather very seriously and it's making just shake my head. I think my Governor Chris Christie is taking very seriously.
Can you just stop by Gracie Mansion in New York City and sweep Mayor Bloomberg away? Thanks.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the New York Police Department was like his own personal military force during a speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, according toPolitickerNY.
What a great letter I received this morning from NY Mayor Bloomberg. One would assume he is strongly behind the Obama/Biden ticket and opposed to the ticket of hate, and one that contains significant elements of what could be an American Taliban (the lunatic religious right that pays no heed to the Constitution and American values, and that is so enamored of like thinkers Romney/Ryan) : Lewis - Maryland will always hold a special place in my heart. I went to college at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, and have remained active in the Hopkins community. So when Governor O'Malley asked me to support Question 6, I didn’t hesitate. As a business leader and Mayor of New York City, I do not believe that government has any business telling one class of couples that they cannot marry. The 14th Amendment guarantees us all equal protection under the law, and that's what Question 6 does -- it treats all citizens equally under the law, while protecting religious liberty at the same time. Two years ago, I was proud to ...

Today at City Hall, I joined with Dr. Ramona Hernandez of CUNY's DSI, Dr. Michael Moatt-Wynn of the Harlem and the Heights Historical Society, Maximo Corcino, Counsel General of the Dominican Consulate of NY and William Malamud of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Dominican Republic to take part in Mayor Bloomberg's bill signing ceremony. One of these bills is of particular importance to the Dominican community in particular as Broadway, from 159th st. to 218th st. will now be co-named Juan Rodriguez Way, in honor of the first ever non-indigenous settler in New York City. The momentous research done by the Dominican Studies Institute at CUNY's City College has uncovered that Juan Rodriguez, a mulatto man, settled in the Hudson Bay area in 1613, prior to any other settlers and before this area became known as New Amsterdam. Mr. Rodriguez, originally from Santo Dominigo on the island then known as La Hispanola, now known as the Dominican Republic, was a free man, traveling with Dutch merchants around ...
•Other Protests slated against Hate Posters in New York Subways (NEW York City, NY 9/24/12) – On Tuesday morning (September 25) at 9:00 am, a coalition of New York community and faith based organizations will gather on the steps of City Hall to denounce anti-Muslim hate advertisements posted on New York City subway platforms (image below). The ads are harmfully provocative and inherently divisive. In a letter to Mayor Bloomberg on September 10, 2012 the coalition urged the Mayor to make a public statement regarding the ads, asking him to “stand up to the politics of fear and show the millions of New Yorkers and millions of visitors to this great City that we do not endorse Hate Speech.” The coalition also sent a letter to MTA Executive Officer Joseph Lohta asking him to introduce measures to mitigate the impact of the hate ads and to discourage hate groups from using MTA advertisements in the future. Rev. Chloe Breyer, Executive Director of The Interfaith Center of New York, observed: “Having wo ...
I was watching Jack Van Impe show about the world, religion,etc. Jack were mentioned that 78 out of 81 congressmen were found to be known COMMUNISTS. Are we in danger of losing our freedoms? Look at Mayor Bloomberg in New York City who keep pushing for ban on Large drinks and he finally got it. I got to be honest with you guys is that I don't trust Obama because of his Anti-Christian stand and he don't like the Religious Statues at Georgetown College and had asked that all statues to be covered up. Is there something wrong with him? I remember seeing a weekly newspaper that did a report on Obama is that he had a *** fling when he was younger. Was his marriage to Michelle a possible sham? Only God know the truth and those who has faith. Remember Virgin Mary said, you people may no longer has the freedom you once have. So be BEWARE!
ever visit New York City. Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on large sugar-sweetened drinks was approved on Thursday by the cities board of health. What do you think about that kind of soda ban? Probably no surprise to you, people in Abilene mostly think the soda ban takes away peoples rights. "It's ridiculous," Cindy Lane a soda drinker said. "Its taking away the rights of peoples freedom." Luckily here in the Big Country people can still drink and buy all the soda they desire- something they call a basic right. "It would kind of be like infringing on my rights as an American," John Cox another soda drinker said. Would Abilene Mayor Norm Archibald consider it? "To be real honest with you, no, number one I believe that government intrusion into whether you have a big gulp or a 10oz. or 20oz., I think that is way too much of a reach," Archibald said. Mayor Bloomberg's reasoning for the ban to fight obesity, if that's the case, some are asking, where does it stop? "Because what happens to the next thing that co ...
Also read about Glen Beck's experience in New York City. No more sympathy for that city from me. Mayor Bloomberg and NYC deserve each other.
Regarding the tragic shooting in New York City: Lets get this straight. Steven Ercolino was shot five (5) times by Jeffrey Johnson, who had a .45 mod. 1911. That gun has a 6 round magazine. With one round chambered, its total capacity is 7 rounds. Nine people were injured by bullets or bullet fragments. Two police officers fired "at least" 14 rounds at Jeffrey Johnson, who did NOT shoot at police. Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Ray Kelly are going to try to spin this incident into an anti gun campaign. Kelly has already said this happened because guns were too easily available. That was before he even knew the facts of the incident. Typical liberal spew of unsubstantiated speculation. I am surprised the MSM hasn't already started accusing Johnson of being a Tea Party supporter. Now that the truth has come out, that police shot the nine (9) other victims, will Mayor Bloomberg or Commissioner Kelly call for better police training? The answer of coarse, is no. Its just not politically beneficial to thei ...
August 28, 2012 ushers in the Richard Tucker Centennial Year.

29. Everybody likes the philosopher-king when they agree with his opinion. He becomes a tyrant when he disagrees with their wishes. Human nature has not changed. A lot of lefties and righties admire dictators who can supposedly do good things for their people whether or not that is what the common people want. Mayor Mike Bloomberg of New York City supported his health commissioner in banning transfats from restaurants. The American Heart Association opposed this that this would freeze science into law hampering future changes as we know more. Mayor Bloomberg would like to ban super-size Soft Drinks. In one way, it seems to be a nit-picky way of picking on one food while ignoring other things. On the other hand, if he moves the default size downward, perhaps people will drink fewer calories. Clint Eastwood became the mayor of Carmel, California to fight idiocy of banning ice cream cones on the beach. What do you think?

They wish it would go away, but much to the chagrin of Mayor Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, sick leave remains an issue with more lives than the proverbial cat. In New York City getting sick is an unaffordable luxury for more than one million workers.
Never mind the boundaries between New York City and the rest of the world, Mayor Bloomberg now says that it is the NYPD’s duty to "keep this country safe,” no matter where it takes them. This statement comes in the aftermath of an investigation revealed by the AP last week that linked the NYPD to conducting surveillance of Muslim students and faculties at over a dozen colleges across the northeast United States, including the University at Buffalo, the University Of Pennsylvania and the Ivy League institute Yale.

Bloomy’s bottle *** By KAROL MARKOWICZ Last Updated: 12:27 AM, July 31, 2012 Getty Images In the hazy hours after her new baby is born, a mother faces the decision of whether to breastfeed or use formula to feed her child. She may try to breastfeed and succeed right away — or it might take a little time to figure out. But should she choose to supplement with formula, she’ll now find New York City standing in her way. Under a new Mayor Bloomberg-led initiative, Latch On NYC, moms will have a tougher time making the decision to formula-feed. As The Post reported last weekend: “With each bottle a mother requests and receives, she’ll also get a talking-to. Staffers will explain why she should offer the breast instead.” Since newborns need five to six bottles in a 24-hour period, that’s going to be a lot of lecturing. Though formula-makers themselves note “breastmilk is best” in their ads, Mike Bloomberg feels that what is lacking for women, should they decide not to breastfeed, is educatio . ...
Law Enforcement Today MAYOR BLOOMBERG’S GAFFE Mayor Bloomberg, a co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, has long been a supporter of gun bans and forcing the citizens of New York City to rely on law enforcement for their protection. He doesn’t see law-abiding citizens as part of an important team in the effort to deal with those who would victimize and terrorize the community. While he has an armed personal security detail with him to protect him from the” Riff Raff”, the citizens of his city are left picking up the pieces or being killed while waiting for law enforcement to arrive, assuming, of course, they even had time or a phone to call. This is not a reflection on NYPD, merely the reality that law enforcement simply cannot be everywhere, no matter how professional or highly trained. See More:

The fat, slovenly, unkempt alleged film director, Michael Moore appeared on the Piers Morgan program on CNN the other night and the two happily conspired to violate my rights as a gun owner because "they said" rather than based on anything other than a totally tyrannical totalitarian philosophy. This was the case even though the pathetic Mr. Moore can not even figure out how to shower, shave, and take care of his b.o. problems. Hardly who I would want dictating to me about what my rights should be. In the meantime, Senators Schumer (Democrat, NY), Feinstein and Boxer (Democrats from California) and senator Lautenberg (Democrat NJ) among others have attempted to ram anti-gun legislation through the U.S. Senate in a "Cybersecurity" bill. Absolutely despicable. Mayor Bloomberg of New York City continues on his anti-gun rants using the "reasonable" approach to gun control. Mr. Bloomberg apparently thinks it is reasonable to violate my gun rights because "he says" and that is that. Bloomberg has attacke ...

I went to the movie theater last and saw a large poster in the lobby rallying audiences to join New Yorkers for Beverage Choices. Later, during the previews, an actual ad was screened asking audiences to not "let Mayor Bloomberg ban beverages over 16 ounces in NYC!" and "If this now, what next?" Who paid for this campaign? Big corporation, of course! Specifically, the American Beverage Association - an organization comprised of top-earning beverage manufacturing and distributors. In a pamphlet for the cause, this organization throws around language such as "Join the Coalition!" and "Fighting obesity and advocating for a healthier New York City is a priority, but don't trample our personal freedoms and rights in the process." A few things. First, in this country today, the civil rights of *** woman and minorities are perfectly debatable, BUT outlawing drinking a Big Gulp is just wrong...? Second, how can an organization comment on a public health issue and yet provide NO health information either proving ...

"How can Mayor Bloomberg justify this grotesque tax-funded slaughter of thousands of beautiful geese and their newly hatched goslings that were rounded up, stuffed into crates, loaded onto trucks and gassed by USDA agents in the past three years?" asks Edita Birnkrant, NY Director of Friends of Animals. Another Mayor-approved slaughter is set to start any day now, while the geese are molting and flightless, even though 90% of the Canada geese who are part of the biodiversity of our parks have been exterminated by the Mayor’s plan.

Mayor Bloomberg, Chancellor Walcott and State Senator Saland Announce New Legislation to Better Protect Students from Inappropriate Sexual Conduct 05/29/2012 NYC Schools Chancellor and Districts Across the State Will Have Final Say in Cases Involving Inappropriate Sexual Conduct Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott and State Senator Stephen M. Saland today announced new legislation to give school districts enhanced abilities to dismiss teachers who engage in acts of inappropriate sexual conduct against students. Under the current law, outside hearing officers decide on these cases and impose binding penalties – including whether or not a teacher is fired. Districts are held to what the hearing officers decide. The reform amends New York State Education Law 3020-a so that school districts – and in New York City, the Schools Chancellor – have the final say on what action to take. Hearing officers will submit their decisions to the school district for review, and the school ...

Yet people are still allowed to buy as many cigarettes as they can afford. So tell me Mayor McChe... Oops, I mean tell me Mayor Bloomberg, how much will a 32 ounce soda, a size you want to restrict, shorten a persons life? According to some researchers, a single cigarette will shorten a persons life by 11 minutes. So which is more dangerous? How about this, Mister Mayor. You do your job as mayor and make sure essential city services are delivered to the people of your fine city and stop thinking of yourself as their nanny. Okay? Okay!
A & P News (Feeding you a line since 1949) Mayor Michael Bloomberg today announced the formation of a new department to server New York City: The Food And Sugar Calories Intervention Success Teams(F.A.S.C.I.S.Ts for short). " These teams will go to every movie theater, restaurant, fast food place and other places that are corrupting our health and make sure that people are protected from themselves" the Mayor said. " These teams will be authorized to confiscate any pop corn that is salted or buttered, any milkshakes that contain real ice cream and whole milk and any other food I deem to not be in the public interest." Mayor Bloomberg continued " We will ticket and fine those who dispense the banned items as will as those that consume them. Repeat offenders will be looking at time on Reykers Island"
Time for me to vent. New York City school principal Greta Hawkin's has barred the graduating kindergarten class from singing God Bless The U.S.A. because it might offend people. She had the song replaced with Justin Bieber'.s Baby. I am annoyed due to the fact that American's can no longer be American's in our own country because we might offend someone. Well this is America and if you don't like get out. Greta Hawkin's also showed her racist side when she declared she was black. Your previous principal was white and Jewish.More of us to come. This is what we have teaching our children and grandchildren. Let's breed hate and racism through are school systems. Where are Mayor Bloomberg, President Obama on this issue. I forgot they don't care about America either. This is just my opinion.

(I’m not going to elaborate on how funny it is that while Bloomberg wrings his hands over soda pop, he thinks that a 1-foot-in-diameter donut just means more delicious goodness for everyone.) In the health-obsessed culture that characterizes America’s urbane elites, it is widely considered to be a moral imperative for government to do whatever it can to stem the tide of obesity in America. Tackling childhood obesity is First Lady Obama’s signature cause, and she’s done an admirable job of encouraging families to move their bodies more and make better choices about what they put on their plates. It seems that neither Mrs. Obama nor Mayor Bloomberg has any qualms about taking a firm “moral” stand on the issue of nutrition. Their logic: Drinking a 64-ounce cola is bad for everyone, and government is mo ...

Ok, let me get this stupid NYC soda ban correct. I cannot not get a 32 oz. Coke or Pepsi. I can get a 32 oz. Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi. I can load up with a big Mounting Due Slupee but not a Mountian Due. I can say is *** are you smoking Mayor Bloomberg.

America we are loosing our democracy to the Republican party.
