Dumb Rich Guys
Life is unfair. For proof look no further than New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and TV trash talker Jerry Springer.
How these two got to be ungodly rich while lacking any semblance of common sense is truly inexplicable… and unfair to the rest of humanity.
Springer recently appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity”. As Politico reported, he sang the praises of President Obama
I think Barack Obama has done a good job as president. In fact, I’d say even better than good. I must admit he’s turned out to be an excellent president.
Politico gave Springer props for his political knowledge. They noted he served a stint as Mayor of Cincinnati. They didn’t mention that it was a single two-year term. Or, that the city councilman who received the most votes automatically became Mayor. Or, that the job was a ceremonial position, not executive.
Politico also failed to mention Springer’s “I Paid a Hooker with a Personal Check” scandal while in office. The guy’s a political genius.
Obamanomics may well be a boon for Springer: Millions more unemployed Americans are home during the day to watch the trash television he regularly broadcasts. So maybe Jerry’s making more money than ever due to the economic downturn.
OK, so Springer is a buffoon. But, Bloomberg is a man who made billions in the financial information industry. He must have some brains.
Bloomberg appeared on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” and when asked about opposition to the Ground Ζero Mosque said:
This issue, I think, will go away right after the next election. This is plain and simple people trying to stir up things to get publicity and trying to polarize people so that they can get some votes. And I don’t think that most of these people who are yelling and screaming really care one way or another.
Let’s see if I understand this: Americans overwhelmingly oppose a mosque at Ground Ζero because politicians are trying to get votes. And, we won’t care about the issue once the election is over.
Yeah, sure, that’s why we’re upset Mayor. It couldn’t be that there is no memorial, or rebuilt towers. Or, that it is an insult to those who were murdered. Nah, of course not, we’re the idiots.
Obviously brains are not a prerequisite to make money in America. Yup, life is definitely unfair.
