  •  Bloomberg union buster (6+ / 0-)

    Bloomberg demonstrates no respect for working people. To him, they deserve no job security no matter how long and faithful their service. And, they are entitled to no voice, hence the union busting. It is ironic that he pretends to be an advocate for kids. If his policies prevail, most kids will grow up to find an America where they have little chance for good wages, economic security and respect from their employers. I don't know what his motives are, but maybe his great wealth has made it impossible for him to understand the problems most people face in earning a living and providing for their families.

    Hooking up with Michelle Rhee and Students First is a natural for him. Remember, she thought it was a good idea to actually fire an educator on TV. Nice lesson for our kids.

      Watching the lovefest by some on this site for Bloomberg on the gun issue, most specifically his purchasing of the IL-2 race, has been sickening over the last few weeks. Plutocrats like him want the "little people" to argue about social issues like guns while they further consolidate the political and economic power of the top 0.01% through privatization of public services like education.

      Bloomberg is no friend of progressives. He gets the bread, we get the social issue circus.
