Mike Bloomberg: Fiscal genius

From the NY Post:

Back in 2003, Hizzoner got Albany to borrow $2.5 billion and use the cash to pay off city debts that were coming due over the next five years. The state would then repay those funds in payments stretching over the next three decades.

The bitterest irony is that the $2.5 billion was supposed to be the city's last payments on bonds issued by the Municipal Assistance Corp. to rescue the city from the '70s fiscal crises.

In other words, Bloomberg ensured that taxpayers in 2034 would be paying off expenses incurred by Mayor John Lindsay in the 1960s.

2034?
More like 2134 !
This a'O is doing the same thing John Lindsay did with all the "Come and get it" & free services for tweeds in the 60's that caused the 1st bankruptcy.

--Only this time around there numbers have increased to over what over 10 or 20 fold ?
This Mayors destroyed all 5 boroughs with his sanctuary city politics.

Bloomberg Bone Cancer 2010. Oh Lord, why do you forsake us? Please rid us of this douchebag. Please end his miserable life.

Wow. So that's why we needed the third term.

Bloomberg's solution: closing firehouses. Of all the services that need cutting, he chose the services we actually need.

Please stop talking like this. The best way you can make his life hell is to educate the public as to the prick he is, and then have the contempt of a city he tried to ruin sneer at him every time he sets foot in it.

THAT, my friend, would make him a living hell.

Coupled with the knowledge that historians will blot his name for prosterity.

Where are the people who posted things here before the election saying "He's going to win anyway, so let's all get behind him"?

Do you have the courage to say anything now?

I didn't vote for the piece of crap. I tried to tell people and they are just stupid.
