August 18, 2013

In the race to succeed Nanny Bloomberg as major of New York City, Michael Goodwin writing for the New York Post called out the Democrat candidates on the issues:  two of them for their complete ignorance of the city’s own history as they tried to pander with nostalgic platitudes about immigration; another for trying to [...]

Soda. All the Calories of Beer with None of the Positive Side Effects

November 15, 2012

After he lost about 324 pounds or so a few years ago to run for President, Mike Huckabee said something I’ll never forget:  “never drink calories.”  Although I’ll never eliminate the liquid calorie from my daily activities, I do try to cut back on certain things, like soda or Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee (that one [...]

Mayor Bloomberg Worries About Arizona as NYC Risks Going Pre-Giuliani

February 1, 2011

Mike Bloomberg may not have the balls to confront the public sector unions that refuse to plow New York City after a snowstorm, but let’s cut the mayor some slack.  He’s planning something much more important.  Like sending undercover investigators to gun shows . . . in Arizona! Maybe Bloomberg thinks he has accomplished everything [...]

NYC Snow Removal Disaster

December 29, 2010

If you live in the Northeast (or traveling through one of our airports), you know how inconveniencing blizzards around the holidays can be.  New Jersey got nailed pretty bad (18-22″ or so), but so did New York.  Like nearly all major winter storms, this nasty storm was forecast days in advance to hit Sunday afternoon.  [...]

Michael Bloomberg’s administration is once again sticking its nose into New Yorkers’ private lives, this time kicking off a public campaign to encourage people to cut back on salt.  Unlike Bloomberg’s previous food nazi initiatives, this one is voluntary.  There will be no fines for eating those tasty Belgian fries in the East Village, so [...]

Bloomberg’s Thin Skin on Kennedy

January 26, 2009

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has always been a liberal, occasionally piggy-backing on others during his climb to power (read: Rudy Giuliani).  That being said, Mayor Mike’s thin skin (or utter reluctance to criticize the Kennedy Klan) came out when he described the press’ treatment of CAROLINE KENNEDY as “reprehensible” and ”totally inappropriate” in regards to [...]
