    Women protest proposal that would penalize cabbies for picking up hookers - NYPOST.com

    He's not only into what you eat.. But his work is not done until he's chastized you about your choice of summer dress...

    In the case of junk food -- it's clear he wants to tax it. But in the case of showing some leg or cleavage, what could he be after???

    Who the hell is gonna want to live in Nanny York? It's starting to resemble the lockdown at San Quentin.

    Bloomberg won his first term as a Republican.

    You guys seem to forget that.

    I also find it funny there was no outrage about Bloomberg's iniatives with the Homeless...such as disallowing benefits for homeless people from other states..or kicking them out of shelters if they "had a another alternative".

    Uh he did, but he stopped being a RINO and just admitted he wasnt a republican, so I will give him props for that. Thank God he did too. Dont know much about the homeless, hook up a link.

    Well thanks.. Now I know about that also.. Gotta admit, local NYC politics isn't part of my normal day.. Except when the govt interference reaches epic proportions..

    Yeah -- I'm outraged by that too unless there's more to the story..

    Bloomberg never stopped being a fiscal conservative.

    He's just not as bigotted and racist as the rest of conservatism.

    So..he got the punt or left..the Republican party.

    I left there in the mid nineties and have not looked back. Even some of my hardcore NY friends and family are looking at leaving... it ain't worth it. Bloomberg is an out of control megalomaniac.

    More to what story?

    Time and time again, Bloomberg cuts funding to homeless..or does some pretty ridiculous moves.

    Oh yeah..and a good part of the Homeless community are vets.

    That doesn't seem to matter to you folks.

    It's when Bloomberg tries to get obese people to cut their calories that you guys grab the pitchforks.

    Maybe he should just prosecute the prostitutes. Otherwise, let people be free. Even if they dress trashy.
