Bloomberg, The Little King

Dear Editor,

The Little King has worn out his welcome and the masses can now see that he clearly has no clothes. And what and ugly sight it is!

Bloomberg does not even get our streets plowed properly because he spends all his time trying to figure out how to do away with public school teachers. His oft-stated and long - term goal is to eliminate the pensions of ALL public employees. Let me remind him that the Civil Service system was created as a direct result of the favoritism, corruption, nepotism, foul play and treachery of people like Boss Tweed and the outrageous political practices of Tammany Hall. How fitting that this out of control little despot moved “HIS “Education department and his mindless, gutless, rubber stamp “Panel for Educational Policy” into the building that is the ultimate symbol of corruption.

Bloomberg arrogantly proposes the layoffs of veteran teachers who service children, while he employs hundreds of highly paid consultants whose positions have nothing to do with children whatsoever. He even employs second chancellor so he can keep his fellow, upper east side millionaire and uncertified “Chancellor “, while no-bid contracts are signed off on with impunity in his notorious Tweed Courthouse.

Never forget: it was the workers who built this great nation and Civil Service System that enabled those workers to keep their jobs without the fear of retribution from politicians like the current tyrant in City Bloomberg claims new teachers are “better” ony because they are CHEAPER. There are thousands of senior firefighters and police officers who are probably not in such solid physical condition as recent graduates of the Fire and Police Academies, but their professional knowledge and many years of experience in the field more than make up for the cost of their higher salaries. Don’t let Bloomberg fool you with his talk of “better” teachers. It is a charade as is his whole campaign to eliminate public schools through Charter school expansion. Bloomberg has no interest in anyone other than his fellow millionaires. He disguises his argument as a crusade for “Children First”, yet neither he nor any of his uncertified chancellors has ever sent their children to a public school. His goal is to divide union workers.

Do not allow Bloomberg, nor his allies in the major media, to do away with the Civil Service Seniority rights of teachers, or those of all other Civil Servants will follow! Remember :America’s best days followed the creation of the Civil Service system and job protections from tyrannical politicians like our current third term emperor.
