Just Who Is It That Sucks?

The ny-examiner seems to think it's Mike
An excerpt
Mike Bloomberg has already begun running ads for his mayoral campaign that won’t be decided until November. When elected, it will mark the beginning of his third term in office. For those of you unfamiliar with New York law, the mayor is only allowed to serve two terms in office, sort of like the President of the United States. Bloomberg was able to override the constitutional amendment with the power of his money and a house/senate/public that is drunk on their own blind stupidity. New York City has become one giant land of yuppies with prices sky rocketing so much they will soon be asking you to give a testicle for entrance on to the island. The only thing good about that is it will keep Lance Armstrong away. Bloomberg fines people if the awning above their business is incorrectly lit, if bars have candles on their tables without a fire licenses or if a worker at a café takes his hat off for a brief second. The man who claims to be all about business is absolutely awful for small NYC businesses (which are what make this city). In ten years, New York’s skyline will be filled with McDonald’s, T.G.I. Friday’s, Starbucks and Olive Garden’s shinning neon capitalist lights and a giant Coca-Cola sign on the Empire State Building. The city will lose its luster and be seen as just a giant suburb, only with a lot of homeless people (soon to be more homeless people). I don’t know how anyone can afford to live in Manhattan, especially anyone my age. People pay over $1,000 rent a month. That’s $12,000 in a year or $120,000 in a decade and $1,000 is cheap for Manhattan.
