I can't disagree, I think the average Dem voter dislikes Bloomer quite a bit... BUT the DNC adores the guy and is particularly fond of his money. He's the perfect example of the dysfunctional relationship between the DNC and their voters. Hell, every candidate they've run out there is the perfect example, each in their own way. Sanders and Warren... I somehow don't believe the average blue collar, middle class Democrat is a commie or wants a commie in the White House, nor are they particularly impressed by a candidate who lies and claims to be an Indian when she's actually lilly-ass white. Biden... I don't believe the majority of Democrat voters wish to see a doddering, senile old racist in the White House. Kobluchar and Butigieg... I sort of presume the average Democrat voter actually wants to know WTF their candidate actually stands for rather than voter for someone who has yet to actually answer a single question about their platform directly.

Buttigieg is the one to watch I think. On his site his take on issues is pretty mainstream Liberal. He's their Liberal alternative to the Socialist Bernie. Bernie is certainly not palatable to moderates.

Bloomberg I get the feeling was recruited to run, not to win, but to influence the primaries, which does not seem to be working out. I think the bloom is off the flower as far as the old Obama base goes.

Don't you know that those statistics are inherently racist?

Statistics are always racist unless they show that white people are bad

Bloomberg was an "also ran" in Iowa and New Hampshire. He's not yet a blimp on the radar.

I suspect mainstream Dem's are not happy about the guy. The media does not necessarily represent things as they really are. Bloomberg is toast. He's in this for some other reason I think, likely to do with having a platform to run political ads from without the encumbrance of donation limits, since it's his money.

From his ads showing up here, he's pandering to the Obama supporters to keep them on board.


I was thinking the same thing, although another aspect to bunk campaigns to consider is that they can lend money to their own campaigns, at whatever interest rate they wish to charge, then pay themselves back with donations. It could be a nice way to turn $1B into $1.5B in the course of a year.

I kind of doubt that. If anything it could be to form new relationships he thinks could benefit his bottom line in the future. Personally I think the idea he's in it to flood the country with ads friendly to the Dem's, using his own massive wealth, is a good guess. 1 billion at this point in his life is meaningless to him. He may just want to see a note about him running for President in his Wikipedia page.

He's an analytics guy. He doesn't care about race. His problem solving methods do in fact work or he would not be worth 60 billion but on some things it absolutely will not work. If it was a white trailer park community he would have taken the same stance.


No; this is an incorrect assumption. The assumption that someone has a bank account and therefor is correct in policy is moot; it just means he was able to sell bad policy. His bank account is representative of him being a good salesman, not having working policy.

I'll give you a real world analogy. The guy who sells the rubber donuts that keep items on the front of pegs at retail outlets. There is absolutely no metrics in the world that suggest that "front facing" product increases sales. Nobody ever walked into a store and said "Oh well, that product that I want slid down the peg and is touching the wall, how unprofessional I'll go to another store that has the rubber donuts!"

Yet the guy who sells the rubber donuts is a multi-millionaire because he was able to sell that lie to a metric ton of business owners who while trying to increase their profit margins actually decreased them by purchasing hundreds of thousands of these donuts that do nothing to help you make a dollar.

I'm in sales; I've made tons of money hawking products that were useless, the size of my bank account doesn't somehow prove that the products I sold were actually useful. The size of my bank account just proves that I was clever enough to make people believe they were useful. What you've done here, is an informal logical fallacy, it's called "False Equivalency."

Bloomberg is an idiot. All the crime is not in minority neighborhoods, in fact most of the crime is actually what they call "Blue" or "White" collar, which is lacking in the minority department.

Also; I maintain the stance that there isn't a single person worth 60 million who made it outside of the entertainment industry who didn't commit crimes to get it. Donald Trump, Michael Bloomberg are not innocent guys who had great business skills -- they are thieves who made their money stealing it from others, and cooking their books to justify their earnings.

They are just people who had capital handed to them by family through inheritance, that figured it's best to keep the working man poor and pay them unlivable wages, so they can earn millions for doing nothing at all. Their only money making strategy was to be lucky enough to have money to begin with.

Anybody given millions could make tens of millions a year. Literally ANYBODY. They don't deserve it, they didn't earn it. Donald Trump went bankrupt thrice, and he kept getting loans from banks because his dad kept co-signing the loans by backing them with his money. Any normal person wouldn't be able to try 4 times to get it right. Normal people are lucky enough to get one shot, and if they don't hit the target, they are belly up in debt for the rest of their lives.

Analytics guy my ass, he just had the money to pay annalists to keep him in the green. And they did so by breaking the law, and he remains innocent because of plausible deniability and iron clad NDA contracts.

The american dream is a lie. You can't just go to work, work hard, and become a millionaire; not with all the taxes, medical bills, school bills, required certifications and degrees, legal fees, etc. The american dream only works under one condition; that you graduate highschool, get married before 30 to someone who graduated highschool, both of you can hold a job for 10-15 years, you spend no money on entertainment, and you don't have kids until you have enough capital saved to buy a proven business. Then you underpay your workers and make passive money from your couch while the business you bought keeps churning in pay checks.

This is obviously impossible for anybody who suffers an injury or has a rare disease or genetic mutation. On top of that; you cannot get assistance unless you have kids and can't hold a job, so you get disabled based on a mental condition.

My wife is fighting for disability, and she was told by a judge she can work and hold down a job despite the fact that she has Von Hippel Lindau Disease and has had two brain surgeries where they removed two sizable chunks of her brain and she can't even walk without a cane, on top of the fact that she has about 15 doctors appointments a month where she has to commute over 200 miles to get to the closest doctor with any experience with her condition.

The American Dream is snake oil. And you bought it.

I'd say the real cause of high crime neighborhoods is poverty and those who find a way out leaving the neighborhoods, instead of helping to improve them. It creates pockets where gangs and hard drugs, which both result in violent crime and thefts flourish.

Until the poverty and lack of education is dealt with, nothing changes. Race has zero to do with it.

I agree whole heartedly, but the system is rigged to keep us poor, by those who aren't. It's that simple. Michael Bloomberg is more responsible for the crimes in those minority neighborhoods than those committing the crimes in those neighborhoods. Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, The Walton Family, The Rockefellers and Rothechilds, etc etc...

They don't give back. They make billions a year, donate 15 million to charity to say "hey look at how much I gave, pat me on the back" while they sit in their multi-million dollar home on their 70 million dollar private island and talk down to everyone else saying it's our fault because we're lazy.

The problem is the super rich, the problem is they bough the government, the problem is the government enabled corporations which eliminated competition. Every major corporation, every Walmart, every Google, every Amazon, is a chip bully at the worlds biggest poker table. And they all stole to get their pile.

I think Bloomberg's gun control ideas are fascist. That said, based on what prominent Democrats have called "fascist" of late, there are quite a few of Bloomberg's ideas those same Dems *should* be calling out as fascist, including what you just linked to. I do not personally support the idea that opposing Occupy Wall Street was fascist. The Occupy movement was a joke.

Nonsense. The rich are not even remotely the problem. Politics is the real culprit here. Giving handouts instead of a hand up is the problem. Apathy among the residents is another, along with bad parenting and lousy schools. The impoverished who are not part of the drug and gang culture need to stop fighting the system and learn to use it.

Blaming it all on the rich is absurd. It's a convenient scapegoat, but absurd all the same. Relying on others to do the digging for them to get them out of their hole would have worked long ago if it was a viable solution. Sitting around waiting for others to fix things where they live is just another excuse to sit on their hands.

I came from rural poverty and it's the same in the cities. One day you just have to say I'm sick of it and take action. Learn, make your self valuable to others and people will hire you and in my case I work for myself. I've not gone without a meal since I learned the answer was in me.

I'm ideologically apolitical tho I do pay fairly close attention to politics for various personal reasons, one being the use of politics as a social steering mechanism by those who prefer ruling from the shadows. And, from this perspective, the entire Trump saga thus far appears to be yet another scene in the carefully scripted drama our species refers to as History.
From the July 2015 U.S. curtain opening on The Descent from Olympus to the current drumbeat of hooves as A Pale Horse thunders onto the center of the world stage - all are predesigned components of a larger construct. Every moment, every action, no matter how seemingly random or unexpected, is a continuation of this Grand Play.
And the scenes seem to be unfolding at an ever increasing pace, with props and plots almost blurring inseparably as they criss-cross the stage before us in a headlong dash for the Final Curtain.

“He who stands aloof runs the risk of believing himself better than others and misusing his critique of society as an ideology for his private interest. While he gropingly forms his own life in the frail image of a true existence, he should never forget its frailty, nor how little the image is a substitute for true life. Against such awareness, however, pulls the momentum of the bourgeois within him.”

Say stuff with Adorno

“As naturally as the ruled always took the morality imposed upon them more seriously than did the rulers themselves, the deceived masses are today captivated by the myth of success even more than the successful are. Immovably, they insist on the very ideology which enslaves them. The misplaced love of the common people for the wrong which is done to them is a greater force than the cunning of the authorities.”

Say more of the same stuff with Adorno

I am neutral when this all settles out and I am seeing every reason to never vote D and only vote R to keep the D's out until someone can dump these two parties and find a way to end the RICO style of political affiliation at the national level.

The tards certainly are leftist by my unofficial personal observations. The fascist Tards were during Bush 1 and 2 and I think those twp were worse than Obama. Plus, Bush 2 gave Jimmy Carter some street cred. Bush was so obviously out for Saddam at any cost. BUT there WERE WMD's I know it. Still idiot Bush couldn't get the liberal media to bite on the truth there. Obama is the coup leader it appears more and more as the FISA lies are having the light shined down on them now. Because the last 4 POTUS were criminals I would think none are too good to get the Graybar motel.
With the failed all out assault politically on DJT, he appears to be the one to get them their tickets to paradise in Guantanamo.
