NYC Mayor Bloomberg sounds like he's had enough of the Occupy Wall Street protesters: "What they're trying to do is take away the jobs of people working in the city... If you focus for example on driving the banks out of New York City, you know those are our jobs... You can't have it both ways: If you want jobs, you've got to assist companies and give them confidence to go and hire people."

    Perhaps the first of many liberals to "get it".

    Unfortunately, Bloomberg isn't exactly your typical liberal. He *used to* be a Republican, remember?

     

    At worst, he's a moderate (maybe slightly left-of-center, given that he is a NY politician after all); but not your typical, socialism-loving liberals you find all over the world.

    Mayor Bloomberg sniffs out a clue (among other, less pleasant odors). Congrats Mr. Mayor :-)

    The Regime engineered class warfare to intimidate and fragment the middle class. But, as often, happens the Regime's mob is now snarling and howling for more victims and blood and this time the mob is trying, rather farcically, to turn on its Big Money masters.
    Of course, the mob will be quickly bribed and cowed by the Regime and soon return to attacking real people and real businesses.

    Funny how when people actually do what they have been told by so many other politicians (to hate and attack all business as rich money hoarders) those same politicians start to get annoyed by the mobs effectiveness.

    We put thousands of cops on the street over the last thirty years to fight crime and the war on drugs.

     

    How ironic that those same cops that failed miserably in both those endeavors are now being employed to deny the citizenry "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"
    And then there's the brutality.

    The key word being "peaceably". Not to mention occasional real violence, the drum circles at these Occupy protests are certainly breaking the peace; there's no constitutional right to being a public nuisance.
