Bloomie rushing term limits bill through

Whatever Ronald Lauder does, Mayor Bloomberg plans to rush through a bill this month to permanently amend term limits, sources said today.

"They're really fast-tracking it because of the mounting opposition," said one insider.

A one-page bill that would change the terms of all elected city officials from eight to 12 years was introduced today in the City Council as opponents swarmed City Hall, denouncing the move as a "power grab."

Public hearings were scheduled hurriedly for Oct. 16 and 17. A vote is likely on Oct. 23.


BLOOMBERG IN RUSH FOR TERM LIMIT VOTE

Councilman Lew Fidler (D-Brooklyn), a leading supporter of the change, predicted the extension would ultimately be approved with 30 to 35 votes. The minimum needed is 26.

Meanwhile, one source said that some council members have asked permission to vote no, even though they privately support the bill and fully intend to seek third terms if it's enacted.


Meanwhile, Anthony Weiner is calling for outer borough hearings.

OINK, OINK, OINK!

The little piggies have already stuffed their faces with power helpings twice!

Now Bloomberg insists on a third portion without the permission of the host, THE VOTERS, who provided the table!

That's beyond coarse manners.
It's a treasonous attempt at an
END RUN AROUND DEMOCRACY!

It's time for the city council to heed the message of a double public referendum:

DUMP THE PORKERS!

"Meanwhile, one source said that some council members have asked permission to vote no, even though they privately support the bill and fully intend to seek third terms if it's enacted."

"Asked permission to vote no"? Who the hell did they ask? Did your council member ask you?

Did they ask Quinn for permission? Or, did they ask Commissar Death and Taxes?

These are our employees. We pay the bills. They have no job unless we give it to them. And, it's part time anyway.

Here's an idea: flush these turds off any ballot where their name appears.

Let's get the Roto-Rooter crew in here to rid us of all this stinking sewage - right down to the most infectious turd; Commissar Death and Taxes.

Sigh....

Oops, my "I-pod" just broke too.

Maybe I've been tuning out
of my civic responsibilities for so, so long.

No officer,
I'm not a dangerous radical for voicing my opinions aainst Mayor Mike.

Why am I being handcuffed?

Quick,

Anyone familiar with that 1970s avant guard play set during the time frame of the French Revolution
"The Marat Sade"
(in it's abbreviated name)?

A little musical except
referring to the aristocracy:

"Those fat monkeys they're
swimming in bank notes...

They've got champagne
and brandy on tap....

They're up to their noses
in frank notes....

We're up to our eyeballs in crap"!

(Something like that).

The full name of that play,
I believe, was:

"The Persecution and Assassination Of John Paul Marat As Performed By The Inmates Of The Asylum At Charenton Under The Direction Of The Marquis De Sade"!

Whew...hence the shorter title!

How au currant!

See..."QC" can be a wealth of information and culture!

Calling Norman Siegel!

Is the NYCLU planning on suing "hizzoner"?

Any class action suits out there?

I'll gladly sign on!

citizen danton said...

I'll sign up too!

But no guillotines please!

It'll spoil the appearance of city hall for tourists.

Hey, I know that crazy play and remember a line from it!

"He wears the people's cap
but his underwear is embroidered with crowns"!

(In other words...
meaning an impostor, traitor
and turncoat...our city's own
Mayor Bloomberg)

FYI:

The peoples cap was a beret type hat with a circular ribbon of
RED WHITE & BLUE (American colors)
fastened to it.

This emblem was worn by the revolutionaries on their jackets also.

Reference to "crowns", of course, meant the aristocracy
(or "aristos" as they were called).

WE DID ELECT A NEW MAYOR...
BLOOMBERG....some of us even voted for him twice.

NOW IT'S TIME FOR HIM TO GO.

HIS LEGAL CONTRACT WITH THE VOTERS HAS EXPIRED!

Now we're quite willing to elect a new mayor!

Mayor Mike, that bumbling "financial expert", let NYC fall under his own watch!

So why should we want him around
for another term?

Despite this egotist's notions about himself, he's not indispensable!

NYC will survive, maybe even prosper more, without him!

There was an even greater recession in 1837 but we're still here ain't we?

Go and read some history you CAU and "Parkside" boobs!

We can't "elect new people"

Comprendo?

If the seats at City Hall
are still full-up with foul fakers
where are the new guys (and gals) gonna sit you putz?

First things first!

Because a tremendous volume of voters read "Queens Crap" to get the skinny on what's really going on.

They've learned to mistrust the clubhouse's prattle and the weak-lies news-rag's pronouncements.

Wadda ya think they're dumb enough to follow the CAU's lead?

Hello Natzli!

We'll complain all we like
because "Archie Bunker" won't be stifled!

Blogs help get the RIGHT KIND
of "new people" elected.

You know the type that serve their constituents' needs rather than their own and the clubhouse's!

This is the fresh new media where truth is spoken (unfettered) not where lies are printed or broadcast
by the team of Bloomberg and Murdoch!

Those old political "Archie" fossils have been sequestered in their clubhouse "Bunkers" too long...

You guys don't understand yet
that your sub-rosa racist agenda days are already numbered!

A nasty bunch....using easily tweeded immigrants only for their votes then
proceed to ignore them afterwards!

From the Daily News
Mr. Felder pulled in the most member item money from the mayor, collecting more than $1.9 million for 19 organizations.

This is where revolutions begin and despots are deposed. Ask the question. Are you to become a willing accomplice in the demise of true democracy, or are will you fight to preserve it. The people have spoken twice. This is the last act of a desperate man.
Qudos to QC for becoming the true voice of the people, whatever their point of view might be.

Oy gevault! God help us all if that is the case. I'll just continue to read from as many different press outlets as possible, form an opinion...and then post my bitchings here.

Bottom line, let Bloomberg do whatever he wants. For disclosure's sake, I think he is the best to deal over the next 4 years until I see otherwise. If you don't like the term limit stuff, simply vote him out in the primary. If that doesn't work, vote him out in the election.

Actually, most of us "zealots" are completely capable of doing several things simultaneously.

We "complain" to let others know about the danger.

It seems that you just spent energy uselessly to whine that there are folks who think you are a moron. In case you didn't understand: You are a moron!
