On Bloomberg's Prohibition Era - the man who spit in the face of the electorate by overturning the 2-term limit over 70% of NYers voted for and then running for an illegal third term, Michael Bloom(ingIdiot)berg prostrated himself before the UN General Assembly this week and said that it is his and all governments' "highest duty" to enforce constant escalating health-fascists bans and prohibitions on everything imagineable, so that people conform to government dictates.

His exact words while arse-kissing the UN to garner favour of his favourite anti-Christs were:

"There are powers only governments can exercise, policies only governments can mandate and enforce, and results only governments can achieve. To halt the worldwide epidemic of noncommunicable diseases, governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option. That is ultimately government's highest duty. "

So I'm afraid to Michael Bloomberg, as to other politicians calling for more and more restrictive, unstoppable bans, this is a noble cause and "highest duty" - in their sick, perverse little minds.

Yet - people keep voting for them, or when they don't, like the NYC term-limits imposed on Bloomberg that was shot down by Bloomberg against popular demand - then they will steal the election in some other form, using propaganda to overshadow their wrong-doings and thus hold onto power at whatever cost.

The man is in office, illegitimately, and now he is cowering in front of the unelected body of dictators sitting at the UN building telling them bans are his and all governments worldwide "highest duty".

May Bloomberg (and others like him) burn in hell for their crimes/sins/lies/etc.

That bit about using Twitter seems to me to just illustrate the depressing effects of a 9-to-5 job!

Well Mr. Bloomberg's ban on noise and smoking in public parks and pedestrian plaza's has been shot to hell. So too his zero tolerance to any crime, no matter how petty.
The 99'ers have seen to that and I suspect that Anonymous wish to see him burn in hell may well be granted.

It cost him $100 million of his own money to get "elected" for his 3rd term and he picks up a $1 a year salary.

New Yorkers got a lousy deal. The guy's stark raving bonkers.
