Michael Bloomberg Speaks

So, Michael Bloomberg is putting his money where his … is. Since he does not seem to think that the Trump record on, for instance, the Middle East matters, he is dropping a lot of money on Joe Biden. He is yearning for a return to the Obama years, when we allied ourselves with Iran and screwed over certain other Mid-Eastern countries.

Why, apparently the mini-mind of Mike does not want to stoop to policy issues. He wants to invest in the planet:

With crisis comes opportunity. We have a once in a generation chance to make the planet fairer, safer, and more resilient for our children and grandchildren.

You would have thought that he could have afforded to hire an editor before offering up this piece of sloppy thinking. What exactly is a “fair” planet? And what is a “resilient” planet? Cultures can promote fairness. People can be resilient. Neither of them are planets? Duh?

You almost think that he has merely collected a few culturally-correct buzzwords, thrown them together and pretended that they made sense. Apparently, his toadies are too afraid to tell him that he does not know how to think.

But, you will see the one thing that Mike’s mini-mind does not care about. That would be: the United States of America. He wants to save the world. He wants to save the planet. He has given the planet qualities that no educated individual would ascribe to it.

But, he forgets about America. If you were thinking that Democrats were suffering from a patriotism deficit, you would have been right. They have a higher cause, a rock that is revolving around the sun. Said rock is neither fair nor resilient, and, when it comes to safe: safe for whom from what? From comets? From meteors? From asteroids?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Mike Bloomberg has not, in his entire life, spent more than 2 seconds thinking about the planet. Thinking about his hatred for Donald Trump has occupied his mind for the better part of the last four years. A little man with a long memory and a deep grudge.

Well, thanks to Bloomberg, I guess Biden has American Samoa in the bag.

Bloomberg is protected by bodyguards -- armed men -- at all times. Yet he doesn't think law-abiding citizens should be allowed to arm themselves for their own protection, as outlined in the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the great majority of State Constitutions.

Therefore, he is not only a plutocratic hypocrite, but also someone who doesn't even understand the rights of citizens and the overall rights and governmental limits of his own country.
