Michael Bloomberg Is The 12th Richest Person In The United States

Last night he removed from some persons their only and last belongings in the world.

He destroyed a medical tent.

He destroyed donated winter clothing and personal belongings of people trying their best and the only way they know to reverse the perverted shift of this country's wealth from the lower and middle classes to the most obscenely wealthy in this country, to reverse the perverted distortion between wages and productivity, and to address the growing immoral inability of many in this wealthiest of countries to receive life-saving health care.



Occupy Wall Street volunteers work in the medical tent in Zuccotti Park, Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011, in New York. The protestors have sectioned off areas of their camp to provide information, services, food, and media resources for both demonstrators and curious pedestrians alike. Medical supplies are largely donated. (John Minchillo / AP)

3. After 9-11
There was a very strong sense that NYC had changed for the worse. OWS showed that NYC had some of it's old, feitsy character. Bloomberg was determined to kill that then, and is now.

Think Mike, if you had donated some toilets from your pocket change, you could have been a hero.

7. This is good in one way. The mask is off. People are just another nuisance to Bloomberg.

8. I guess that puts him majorly in the 1%, huh? Can we safely say that
he does not agree with the Occupy Wall Street protesters?
:sarcasm:
