Gazette is latest Queens weakly to endorse the despot

A sample from the Queens Gazette:

Since he took control of the public school system, the four-year high school graduation rate in New York City has increased by15.2 percentage points. The number of fourth-graders passing state reading exams is up by more than 20 percentage points and state math exams by more than 30 percentage points.

Sure they have.

Crime is down nearly 30 percent since Bloomberg took office. Never one to rest on his laurels, the mayor has continued to bring down crime another 12 percent so far this year, all the while proving that New Yorkers can, indeed, work and live together.

Crime is down because cops tell you not to report it.

A major contributing factor to a healthy city is open spaces. Since Bloomberg took office and led New York's greatest parks development and revitalization program in more than half a century, almost 500 acres of new parkland have been added and the city has plans to build eight new regional parks. Bloomberg's PlaNYC has as its ambitious goal ensuring that every New Yorker lives within a ten-minute walk of a park.

So you just take their talking points and present them as fact? Those "500 acres" consist mostly of the conversion of the Fresh Kills landfill and schoolyards being left open at night. How many new acres of actual parkland have been created in Queens?

Michael Bloomberg deserves the opportunity to set the finishing touches to his accomplishments in the eight years he has occupied the mayor's office. We urge all those eligible to vote in the September 15 primary to cast their ballot to ensure his name will be on the general election slate November 3. He has more than earned a place on the ballot for a third term.

Earned it? Or bought it?

All of those statistics are bullshit. The only reason those numbers are up is because they lowered the standards on all of those things.

Bloombucks and Kleinturd aren't fooling anyone but themselves.

This paper sucks but I still use it as toilet paper since Doucheberg will probably tax toilet paper as well. This paper is good to wipe your butt clean.

The only thing Bloomberg deserves is his skinny ass kicked out of the office of mayor. Our taxes have doubled because of him and he took away our $400 rebate. All he does is tax and spend and buy people who don't agree with him. Dump him in November.

How much did the Mayor or one of his friends pay for THIS paper ?


OMG Italian Girl is 100% correct for once.
The Bloomberg mob lowered the standards on all of those things including crime stats.

Lets not forget aircraft flight over the city.
Its the "Wild West" and amature hour up there below 1200 feet and this f*ckturd wont ask the FAA clean it up.
Could be because he flys his own choppers and plains to his home's in Boston and Cape Cod ?

Paper is owned by Vallones No reporters, news taken from AP, Daily New. Post, press releases, etc. Endorsement? How about press release from Bloomberg?

OK hotshots, why dont you start a letter writing campaign and write to all the newspapers that have endorsed him tell them that he is a hollow pack of lies, that they sold out their communities for ad revenues, and that they should be ashamed of themselves for thumbing their collective noses to the public with going along overturning term limits.

Go ahead, I dare you. And send a copy to Crappy so if they do not publish it Crappy can add censorship to their vices.

The above comment may be bait !!

In NY and some other states like Ca. unsolicted papers, tapes & things to TV studios, newspapers and other media companys become PROPERTY of those companys.

If I'm correct they can go after Crappy or at least make it real expensive. They may not win nor care to win as long as they can slow or shut this blog down.

how is this bait if someone expresses their opinion?

i think you are from one of those papers or a hack, and if so, you might want to sit in on a 9th grade civics class.

if crappy suggests that an american citizen expresses their opinion, and shares it with others, the issue is what ?

if you come after crappy because they suggest people express their opinions, and share it with others, the publicity would make this blog go off the charts.

any takers?

Write this letter only if you think these things are true, and not under orders from Crappy.

This is not the Clubhouse. No one on this blog tells people what to do or say except those things they believe.

But considering the reaction, this might be an interesting thing to do (if you are so inclined)

I think after seeing the health care reaction, some people are scared shitless that the entire bullshit framework they hold over us could be in trouble.

Just imagine if the shouting mob starts to expand their comments to other issues.

That leaves The Trib as the borough's lone holdout. Every other local paper has chosen Bloomberg.

No, we still have the Times Ledger, The Forum, Rockaway Wave, Times Newsweekly and Queens Ledger, unless I missed them.
