Bloomberg Crackdown On Occupy Sandy Volunteers As An Election Issue

Watch Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s stealth visit to the Rockaways. Join Occupy Sandy for a call to action on 12/15 #occupysandy #ows

Mayor Bloomberg just can't help it. Mayor Bloomberg does not believe that government should provide a safety net for the average person, much less to hurricane survivors. Is class warfare a factor in Mayor Bloomberg's worldview about who deserves a safety net or a bailout ? Who is going to get the disaster relief he is seeking ? Will it ever/never trickle down to the people, who really need it ?

But voters do have a choice : why do we accept less ? Why is it O.K. for Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the highest elected Democratic Party politician in New York City, to have no opinion about Mayor Bloomberg trying to undertake maneuvers to try to shut down Occupy Sandy volunteer efforts ? We don't have to accept less from our publicly elected officials.

Remember, Mayor Bloomberg initially said we didn't need help from FEMA ; consequently, thousands of Hurricane Sandy survivors went without any assistance, since it is Mayor Blooomberg's sick and twisted billionaire worldview that government is not supposed to help people in need. And in that vacuum of cruelty came forth Occupy Sandy volunteers, to not only fill the void, but to also lead by example : humanity means caring for one another.

Is Mayor Bloomberg really getting ready to evacuate the most successful, compassionate, and heroic volunteer hurricane relief response in New York City ?
