It's truly disheartening to see our mainstream media and our elected officials' failed attempts to marginalize the public protest termed the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Bloomberg's 'Inebriated' Irish Joke Draws Boos at Upper East Side Event
It just didn’t have to end this way.
Don’t look at his mouth, look at his actions.
Mayor Mike Bloomberg is again declaring he will not be a Presidential candidate, but the proof is in the pudding.
Cathie Black, the chairwoman of Hearst Magazines, is taking issue with reports suggesting that she was not Mayor Bloomberg’s first choice to be schools chancellor, saying the mayor told her personally that he had not offered the job to anyone else. Black appeared Friday on Good Day New York.
Gov David Paterson said something very interesting the other day.
Good morning, dear readers! I did something special today, and because of that, you can now expect an irregular feature from me from time to time. I'm christening it Vincenzo's Crock Pot, where a number of issues will be discussed. I hope you find my eclectic postings to your liking.
You will see attached to this posting a picture of a little girl. Here's the story: I left for work early today, after getting up entirely too early this morning. This little girl was furiously coloring some document; it was folded, so at first, I couldn't make out what it was - I'll mention later what I did see.
Bloomberg: End automatic tenure for teachers. This as I found out a teacher at a former school of mine was a hooker
I often drive on the Cross Bronx expressway, passing Elementary School P.S. 70, and reminisce about my school days there. I remember 3rd grade class, and playing on the roof-top gym surrounded by metal bars everywhere so no one would fall.
Surprised, but I guess really not shocked is the best way to describe when I picked up the NY Post this morning and saw a story about a current P.S. 70 teacher who was an alleged former prostitute and stripper. I've had a very successful career in journalism, and I am not attacking teachers, but I have to admit that I have always wondered how far I could have gone if I had received the same private school education as many other journalists.
It was bound to happen. Third term Blues for Bloomberg.
Voter fatigue is starting to show for New York’s Mayor. A new poll finds his approval rating has dropped below 50 percent for the first time in five years. That’s according to a Marist College Poll released Tuesday.
Does anyone here have an opinion on Tuesday's mayoral debate between Michael Bloomberg and William Thompson?
Mayoral Race Nostalgia: What's Christopher X. Brodeur doing these days?
"When Mr. Bloomberg learned of the $16 million project during his first term as mayor, he offered to make a large enough donation to name the building, which will be the Patricia E. Harris Center for Business, Government and Public Policy. "
--New York Times, "A Mayor Prizing Loyalty Pays Costly Tribute to His Top Aide" by Michael Barbaro, September 2. 2009.
THE Patricia Harris?
Ask any New Yorker who you know. Does anyone know who Patricia Harris is? Can anyone tell you one thing that she's done? They're naming a school after her?
The Obama administration, in response to FOIA requests, dumped some documents this Friday. It appears that the White House was in direct contact with the mayor's office.
As you recall, Mayor Bloomberg was "furious" that he he hadn't been told anything at all about the flyover. The deputy mayors--well, we don't know what they knew. Apparently, the only person who knew anything was a low-level employee named Marc Mugnos.
Mugnos hasn't spoken publicly about the incident, nor has the City Council bothered to investigate the matter. NOTIFY NYC failed that day, planes flew over lower Manhattan, and the City Council just doesn't question a thing?
President Obama, at last night's correspondents dinner, provides the quote of the day:
"In the next hundred days, I will meet the leader who rules over millions with an iron fist, who rules the airwaves and uses his power to crush all who challenge his authority at the ballot box. Good to see you, Mayor Bloomberg."
The "Scare Force One" report was released on Friday at 4:30 p.m. White House Military Office Director Louis Caldera was thrown under the bus and has resigned.
What about New York City? Where is the press? Have any FOI requests been filed?
Mayor Bloomberg was "furious" at low-level manager Marc Mugnos, who allegedly never told anyone about this. Mugnos himself hasn't said a word to the press. Something stinks.
According to the White House report, there was a teleconference with "local authorities" on April 3rd. Mugnos has done this stuff before, coordinating airplanes not to interfere with the US Open.
Bloomberg ("Mayor Tax Increase") has proposed an increase in New York City's sales tax. Again! Two years in a row! Just what New York City needs now--MORE TAXES!
It was only last year when the 30-year 1% Municipal Assistance Corp. tax (from the 1970s fiscal criisis) was due to sunset. Bloomberg got the state legislature to keep the tac permanent. Citizens weren't even allowed to vote on it.
If you're from out-of-town, why visit super-expensive New York City? Are you a sucker?
If you have money and still live in New York City, why stay? Why not keep more of your money and live in a much bigger, quieter, cleaner place? You think only New York has Starbucks?
