Michael R. Bloomberg, not "Mike"

Michael R. Bloomberg: Bad for horses and people

Who is this "Mike" Bloomberg of the glossy campaign brochures? Is this "Mike the straphanger"? Mike the "all-you-can-eat" dim sum guy? Mike the khakis-wearing mayor? What next, flip-flops and corn dogs?

Michael R. Bloomberg is steely-eyed, bloodless and mean. Don't be fooled by his fancy political strategists. He bought them, the way he buys just about everyone else. He is going to find out that New York City is not for sale.

And Bloomberg allows the corrupt carriage industry to run roughshod, ripping off tourists and taxpayers; endangering the public safety; and promoting unsafe and inhumane living and working conditions for the horses.

Michael, Michael R, Mike, Mayor Mike, or whatever he calls himself on any given day, is finding out that he is not as popular as he thought he was.

Ninety percent of politicians give the other 10 percent a bad reputation.
--Henry Kissinger
