Bloomberg defends banksters yet again

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the press this week that he is listening to the complaints coming from the protesters involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement — he just happens to think that they’re dumb.

Speaking from a business breakfast event on Tuesday morning, Bloomberg let loose on the protesters, once again offering his support for the banking industry and instead saying that the detest should be directed towards Washington, not Wall Street.

“I hear your complaints,” Bloomberg said yesterday. “Some of them are totally unfounded. It was not the banks that created the mortgage crisis. It was, plain and simple, Congress who forced everybody to go and give mortgages to people who were on the cusp.”

Bloomberg, of course, has a net worth of nearly $20 billion. Forbes recently listed him as the twelfth richest person in the United States.

Given that, I think it’s safe to say that he isn’t exactly a member of the 99 percent.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal earlier, Mayor Bloomberg said that he’d respect the protesters as long as they respect the law. Following a recent failed attempt to evict protesters at Zuccotti Park, Lower Manhattan’s central hub for the Occupy Wall Street movement, Bloomberg responded by outlawing generators at the demonstration on the eve of the city’s first snowfall of the year, forcing protesters to get creative with ways to keep warm.

“The bottom line is – people want to express themselves. And as long as they obey the laws, we’ll allow them to,” said to the WSJ. “If they break the laws, then, we’re going to do what we’re supposed to do: enforce the laws.”

About RICK MILLER

Hello, my name is Rick Miller, welcome to comprehensive photography. In the name 'comprehensive', means to have a pretty solid grasp about the art of contemporary photography, and how the tools (both hardware and software) are all used together to produce a very precious product to meet your needs. Photography simply means that we are able to capture an image through the use of light and film, or, by using digital chips in very sophisticated cameras. My guess is that you "GOOGLED" something about photography to find us here on this website (don't you love Goggle?). I live in Santa Rosa and Eureka, California, about 40 miles (Eureka is a bit further north) north of the golden gate bridge with my wife Pat and our two boys — Ben, and Jeremy. My daughter, Sarah, is grown and lives in Portland Oregon. I am strictly a digital photographer, although I have purchased thousands of rolls of Fugi ASA 400 (now called ISO, the digital cameras auto-correction, for light compensation). Our negatives are all digitized and burned onto a DVD. I've been shooting digital for over five years, with my previous 28 working for AT&T (in digital transport via fiber, DS1, and DS3) — during which time I was a manager in charge of 911, and all "First Responder" communications, for 5 years. I shoot mostly with Canon products — my two camera bodies, and all my lenses are Canon. I edit in a variety of software. Adobe Lightroom and I use Apple's "Aperture" (I'm a Mac person), "Light Room" and "Adobe CS4 Extended". These are tough economic times, anyone out of work and financial issues knows what I mean. I also know how important it is to document special times in our personal lives, without costing a lot. I love working with you, and creating a quality product that will best capture those special moments in time forever. So don't let these tough times stop you from documenting YOUR special times, let's get together and make memories. Have you ever been feeling a little low and maybe started thinking of someone special, and then gone to a photo album or watched a slide show and re-filled your heart with joy? It is truly worth it. This website is growing very fast, it is meant for business but it is also meant for fun (Thank You Rod Remelin). Please feel free to shoot me an E-Mail, and tell me what you like, hate or feel indifferent about. Thank You for being here Sincerely Rick Miller
