Once Again, Michael Bloomberg Proves Why Statists Need To Be Laughed At Then Voted Out

Mike Bloomberg, that salt hating, non-smoking, prostrate-too-swollen-for-a-Big-Gulp mayor of New York City has walked back on his dopey comments from Monday night urging the nation's police to go on strike until every last one of us is safe from everything.

Mayor Mike appeared Piers Morgan's CNN show and obviously felt comfortable enough -- because no one watches that horrible show -- to spew his inane brain droppings about gun control. Unfortunately for Mike, the LA Times was tuned in.

This is what America's favorite nanny-stater had to say about solving the problem of violence in America:
I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say, ‘We're going to go on strike. We're not going to protect you. Unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe.’”
New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg is working tirelessly to
protect you from yourself, and that makes him hot and sweaty,
and no one likes a hot and sweaty nanny, so Mike had his
flunkies install this window air conditioner in his
Mayoral SUV. I felt too embarrassed for the member of Mike's
detail to publish a picture of him plugging the AC unit in
outside of a very important Mayoral function, but it gets
plugged in at every stop -- to keep his car from breaking the
law by idling too long.

I'm not going to wade into the politics of gun control and lunatics murdering people, but Bloomberg did. For the sitting mayor of a major US city to call on a nationwide police strike in order to further his own political agenda is not just stupid, it's dangerously stupid.

This latest tragedy has once again brought the issue of gun control into forefront of the public discourse. No correct-thinking 2nd Amendment supporter can truthfully say they are not troubled by the amount of armament the lunatics amongst are able to acquire, and no correct-thinking anti-gun person can truthfully contend that banning guns from society will stop criminals from getting guns or lunatics from spreading their evil. This is an issue for reflection and civil discourse, not political hand-wringing and finger pointing.

Blaming mass shootings on a supposed gun culture in the United States is like blaming the World Trade Center attacks on an aviation culture within the insane radical branch of Islam. You can't be intellectually honest and do either.

Mr. Mayor,

You've done some good things, and you've done some stupid things. Calling for the police to strike nationwide to get your political point across is the stupidest thing you -- or any other politician -- could have done in the wake of the horrors in Aurora.

Walking your statements back only proves you'll do what is politically expedient but does not change your core belief that guns are the root of violence in this country.

Sorry Mike, I couldn't help myself. It's disgraceful for any
elected official -- no matter how bad he sweats -- to
pay a government employee to plug in thewindow
air conditioner in his SUV.

I bring Mike's AC unit into the discussion because I get
a little tired of know-it-all do-gooders in government preaching
the simplistic solutions to problems while they treat
themselves like Pharaohs.
