King Michael Bloomberg

Dear Editor,

It's time to give King Michael the heave-ho in the next election for mayor. I'm talking about our Mayor, Michael Bloomberg. King Michael earned the title by going against the wishes of the people when he ignored two elections when the people voted against term limits. King Michael is now trying to solve all the financial problems of the city by putting the burden on the backs of the blue-collar workers and the poor. Have you noticed the police pulling over motorists and issuing summonses for the slightest infraction of the law? We are beginning to look more and more like

a Police State. But

you didn't see King Michael making any attempt to cut the real fat out, like getting rid of the borough presidents and the community boards. What better time than now to do that? Since the demise of the illegal Board of Estimate in 1990 borough presidents have no say, or very little say, in government. Just look at the real estate with the beautiful buildings under their asses and the large working force doing nothing except using their facilities for pit stops for candidates like King Michael running for public office. What a joke? The joke is on the taxpayers, but that is all right with King Michael.

You are aware that the recent Supreme Court ruling gives a developer the right to knock on your door and demand that you sell him your house for his personal gain. The only proof the developer has to have is to prove that he will be paying more real estate taxes on the property than you are paying. It might sound ridiculous to you and even laughable, but it is the law now. King Michael had a big role in that Supreme Court decision. King Michael sent his Corporation Council lawyer, the hatchet man, Michael Cordoza into federal court to support a developer in Connecticut evicting an eighty-five-year-old woman, Susette Kelo, from the home she was born and raised in. That became the Kelo case. You can't make up this stuff. On the recent hearings on term limits King Michael had his hatchet man, Michael Cordoza star in that role.

If we are to survive this fiasco we are in now along with the rest of the country, and the world, we have an obligation to shut out the King Michaels once and for all or at least for now. When the next election comes upon us we must keep our eyes and ears open. The big bucks will be flying everywhere. Any local politician, or local organization, supporting King Michael will automatically become suspicious. They say that money buys an election. That might be true in many cases. We cannot let that happen this time around. We must unite behind the one we believe has the better chance of defeating King Michael and go with him or her.
