    Just when you thought that Mayor Michael Bloomberg could not get any dumberÖ I promise you that the truth is always stranger than fiction with this man. I find myself embarrassed for the people of New York City as I report this. Mayor Michael Bloomberg is calling for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to veto legislation that would legalize the sale of sparklers outside of New York City. Please understand that fireworks are already banned within the five boroughs under his jurisdiction. He is trying to make law for the rest of the state.

    This is so wrong and on so many levels. I simply do not know where to begin. First and foremost it is once again obvious that Mayor Bloomberg is concerned with governing outside of his own constituency. Much as he is trying to rewrite gun laws for our entire nation, he has now taken to try to enforce his fireworks preferences on the whole state of New York. It is important to note this. This man needs to focus on the problems of New York City, which is why he was elected, and leave the rest of us alone. Itís beyond absurd.

    Secondly, what the hell is Bloomberg smoking? Iím serious. Independence Day sparklers are a tradition for children all over this great nation. He wants to take away the joy of this tradition just because some nut job might use a sparkler to ignite a bomb? As if there arenít hundreds of other ways to ignite that same bomb? Unreal.

    Bloomberg won't be happy until the entire city is bubble wrapped.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    The sparklers are already illegal in his city. He wants to expand the ban for the entire state!

    He's always trying to extend his jurisdiction. Just like with his anti gun crusade in other states.

    Tyrants are never happy with the power that they have. They always want more. Fortunately, Bloomberg won't get any farther politically than he has. He's squandered Giuliani's fiscal legacy (Rudy made real budget cuts and brought the city's finances in line with its revenues, while Bloomberg has resorted to gimmicks and borrowing) and the next mayor is going to inherit a huge mess. Let's hope that if it's Weiner, he can rise to the occasion.

    I see what you did there...
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
