Soulless capitalist plutocrat
Are Democrats desperate enough
to make a Faustian bargain?
Abraham Lincoln said something about a house divided being unable to stand. Democrats are divided between following their redistributionist impulse to its logical conclusion, that being Bernie Sanders and full-bore expropriative socialism. Four years of a nationwide, all-expenses paid people’s vacation in a virtual Soviet-era Moscow. The show trials will be live-streamed on your portable devices.
On the other side establishment wing, desperate to beat Trump at any cost — even to sell its soul to the highest bidder, he being the multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
Which is why Blaska wants the 4 by 8-foot plywood concession for Downtown Milwaukee come this August. For the Antifa kristallnacht, doncha know.
I’ll buy you a diamond ring, my friend
If it makes you feel all right
I’ll get you anything my friend
If it makes you feel all right
‘Cause I don’t care too much for money
Bloomberg has purchased the likes of Stacey Abrams in Georgia and Al Sharpton in NYC. They’re bought and paid for. Does anyone actually like Michael Bloomberg? Believe in Michael Bloomberg? It is impossible to imagine this prickly plutocrat filling an auditorium with adoring fans like Trump does every week. The common touch, he lacks. He’s Mr. Burns.
Almost-Never Trumper Jonah Goldberg calls Bloomberg “the poster boy for a kind of arrogant, progressive post-partisan technocratic government that prizes data over feelings. … An icon of the credentialed upper class who saw ideological culture-war fights as so much boob bait.”
The arrogant billionaire is doing what he can to lose America’s heartland. Where Donald Trump in Air Force One buzzed car racing fans at Daytona 500, the satiric Babylon Bee has Bloomberg handing out speeding tickets to the Nascar racers.
For those white workers who pushed
Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania
into Trump’s column, Bloomberg is the personification
of everything they can’t abide. — The American Prospect
So God made an arrogant billionaire
President Bloomberg will not rip my supersized Kwikie-Mart Squishee from my cold dead hands! Not even Virginia’s Democrat-controlled legislature could ban so-called “assault rifles.” All criminals look young and black to the putative Democrat(ic) nominee. China-loving internationalist trader. Wall Street profiteer. His relations with women paint him as Harvey Weinstein-lite. He said good riddance to the Upper Midwest when he dissed farmers.
In The Federalist, Sean Davis riffs on Bloomberg to that classic Paul Harvey radio essay, “So God made a farmer.”
And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a tiny, soulless technocrat to tell everyone else how to live their lives.” So God made a Bloomberg.
God said, “I need a know-it-all Wall Street banker who made more money by getting fired than most men will make their entire lives working an honest job.” So God made a Bloomberg.
“Somebody who would tell a female employee to kill her own baby so she could work longer hours, a grieving family that it’s a waste to give medical care to old people, or a farmer that growing food is easy and any idiot with half a brain could manage it. Someone who could tell a mother that parenting was as simple as hiring ‘some black who doesn’t even have to speak English’ to raise her dumb kid.” So God made a Bloomberg.
Blaska’s Bottom Betting Line: We are so watching tonight’s (02-19-2020) debate in Las Vegas. Here is betting that the live audience gives Mr. Bloomberg the silent treatment, at least when compared to the other five on stage. Say what you will about Trump — and Bernie, for that matter — those two are entertaining. Bloomberg is one big BUZZ KILL!
BONUS platinum subscriber thought: When Houston Astros travel to New York, could the Yankees organize a symphony of banging garbage cans in the box seats over the visiting dugout? 30 or 40 of all sizes would be about right.
One more thing: the President of the United States IS the nation’s chief law enforcement officer.
The attorney general (only referenced as an “inferior officer” in Section 2, Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution) works for the President. At his pleasure. More here.
