And, ironically, making concrete is one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions.

They want their wagyu, but then want a fart tax on cows.
They create and live in smog bowls, but blame country peeps. THEY are the stupid ones.

Gee what's more useful I wonder?

Being able to plant/raise livestock, literally making stuff that keeps us alive.

Or being a manipulative parasite, talking out both sides of your mouth and ripping everyone off.

This is the difference between a politician and a farmer...I'd say complete opposites. And as for being "smart"?

Well one is sustainable and will naturally thrive. The other...won't. I know what seems more intelligent to me.

Bloomberg needs to alter his campaign, here's a commercial:
Root canals, brussel sprouts, Mike Bloomberg - because you hate what's good for you.
Vote Bloomberg 2020

I would love to see Mini Mike try to put in a day's work on a farm or in a factory or mine. He has no appreciation for what others do and thinks he is the genius of the ages because he can manipulate money earned by workers while producing nothing, himself.
His past actions point to a dictator who considers the masses beneath him. The term "pushy New Yorker" comes to mind as though living in THE city [there is only one city according to the inhabitants] makes one knowledgeable and worldly. "No big gulp for you" Bloomberg is limited in his scope and out of touch with reality as he lives in a world of big money, insider trading, and the network of ultra-wealthy, inbred leeches on society.

Shhh. The rest of the world knows and understands that labor unions are an aspect of socialism. But they didn’t sell it that way in the US. They were taught that labor unions were some sort of Super Americana and democracy in action or some other fairy tale. Like unions are the only way to be paid a good wage and is job protection from unfair firing practices.

I just have to point out that you are talking about a bunch of people that want to get rid of the electoral college because the popular vote should matter, but don't care about the popular vote in their own primary.

very well posted!!!

It's hilarious that The Count Von Bloomberg thinks that raising corn is dropping a seed in a hole and adding water. Did he learn that from watching old cartoons???

A single corn plant uses a gallon of water per day until after it tassels out. Its a C4 plant, and so is a net user of oxygen, rather than creator of free oxygen. Corn also has massive nitrogen needs, and will deplete the nitrogen in the soil after a single growing season; so either lots of fertilizer must be used, or heavy rotation with alfalfa or legumes.

The single biggest predictor of a corn crop is daylight hours above 85F. I cannot remember for the life of me how many degree hours you need to produce the expected yield, but I remember its measured in "degree-days"

The biggest scandal in the commodities market was when a bureaucrat at the dept of ag. signaled the results of the corn yield report the night before it was published. I think he signaled a brokerage by leaving the light on in his office at the D of A and manipulating the blinds to signal a lower-than-expected crop, so they knew to buy corn when everyone else was selling. They made millions the next morning before going to jail.

But Von Bloomberg can teach anyone to farm. Maybe he should join the peace corps

Bloomberg is showing his colors, and they aren't pretty ! He sure doesn't seem like someone who has anyone's kids best interest at heart. " Throw the minority city kids up against a wall " and " The farmer's and manufacturing families are dumb "...... There has actually been some great results to exposing city kids to country life, but that's another subject.

Maybe some Cal Poly Professors need to chime in here, Agriculture / Horticulture degrees are Science degrees that are Hard to get ! Advanced Chemistry, Biology, Geometry, Science courses are required and they are hard schools to get in. My niece who just accepted a 6 figure job from Micro-soft in her senior year at UCLA was rejected from Cal Poly.

Insulting the people that provide the food, the same food for your healthy eating agenda. Very smart.

Huh, so that's why there are universities that offer degrees related not to just farming, but entire areas surrounding farming? Who knew ...

Yep, I went to one of those universities. Whole college dedicated to agriculture ...

Most union people I know will not even talk about voting Socialist Trump is the lesser of the evils now days.

That is one of the stupidest things ever posted here. Union people, who are i.e. socialist, won't even think about voting for a sociailist. America truly has become more stupid ounder Trump.

You think all union members are socialist and want a socialist America and you call others stupid? Unions have socialist roots, but I don't know any union members that want socialism in America.

It would be more accurate to say that many unions electioneer very, very strongly, and they will tend to favor the socialist with their electioneering. Union members whatever their personal feelings will support that with their dues whether they want to or not.

And it's important to say that while many unions are staunchly democrat (NEA, SIEU,) other began breaking away to at least be neutral toward trump.

Because his anti-globalism might just mean "Made in America"

in 2016, Trump "lost union households by only 8 points." source article

which is better than any republican except Reagan.

Bloombergs recent gaffs lead me to believe that he was being overzealous about his role in entering the Political arena, did he think this was going to be a cake walk?

He probably though he could just throw money at everything and it'll go smoothly and his way, but that demostrates just the type of old thinking he so stubbornly clings to, probably doesn't realize it.

Trump has been exposed to FOUR(4) years of constant abuse by the left and its progressive media pundits at the National level, EVERY.SINGLE.DAY, Trump is battlehardened over silly antics like the poorly run leftist memetic warfare.

Brad Parscal did an excellent job running Trumps campaign, dude is totally in the know in advancing American culture, this guy is the life of a party and no doubt he'll deliver again.

Bloomberg won't get far at all trying to belittle middle America, they don't forget and will always remember, hell even initial impressions is enough to dismiss him.

I would say they favor Democrats for sure, but I see no evidence the Union leadership favors socialist policies. In fact they pretty much unanimously hated the 'socialist' medicare for all plans. Democrats assist unions in their corrupt practices that make them both rich, but union leaders know socialism will not enrich them so they tend to be against it.

I loathe gotcha politics and taking people's comments out of context. While I am not a Bloomberg fan what he said is factual (to some degree). Unfortunately, for him, he said it in the most condescending way imaginable.

If you listen to the quote, he is saying that farming and manufacturing are process jobs. Basically, you can teach most people to work generic farm or manufacturing jobs.

On the other hand, service and information tech based jobs require quite a bit more intellectual horsepower even for run of the mill jobs.

With that said, intellectual horsepower does not always equal common sense which is why you have so many academics who may have Ph. Ds, but can barely tie their shoes or think logically.

The problem for people like Bloomberg is that they are disconnected from the heartland of the country. They spend all their time in big cities. This is why his comment is so condescending. They view anyone outside of a major city has a hick.

There was an interesting study done a couple of years ago where a survey was done of journalist at major newspapers. Something like less than 1% or maybe even zero knew someone who owned a pick up truck. Of course, this is hilarious because pick up's are the most popular auto sold in the US. However, most are OUTSIDE of major cities. It shows how disconnected from 90% of the population urbanites can be...
