How can this idiot keep getting voted into office. Are New Yorkers really that stupid or is it they just don't care what he does to their city. The NY Yankees should change their name to slaves it would fit them better.
Democratic (Before 2001)

Wow, that explains why I fried my hand so badly when I used poor judgement while lighting sparklers for the neighborhood kiddos last year. Sparklers hurt.
As far as Bloomberg goes, what probably helped in his re-election was the fact that he is a billionaire. To clarify on the nefarious sparkler issue, apparently the ban against dastardly sparklers is in effect. What Bloomberg is doing is attempting to get Gov. Cuomo to veto legislation that would legalize the sale of sparklers in the state of NY. Sparklers are already banned in NYC and NY state and will remain banned in NYC regardless of whether the legislation to legalize passes or not.

I was sweeping some trash from underneath a metal table at work a couple of months ago and hit the underside just the right way to split my hand open requiring an emergency room visit, leaving with seven stitches.
Tables, they gotta go!
