NYC Mayor Bloomburg/Dumbburg is an idiot/moron. He bought his way into office and he is still spending his own money to get what he wants done. What a leader.If i had to work under his command i would quite my job and go on welfare.This is the only way he can be ruler, is to buy the people off. This way it makes him look like a hero.

Bloomberg is a leftist of the first order. His type of thinking is more European nanny state than American.
