Mayor Bloomberg: ‘I Have My Own Army’

The complete quote from a speech 2 days ago – explaining why purchasing City Hall was a better deal that White House would be

“I have my own army in the NYPD, which is the seventh biggest army in the world. I have my own State Department, much to Foggy Bottom’s annoyance. We have the United Nations in New York, and so we have an entree into the diplomatic world that Washington does not have,” Mayor Bloomberg said.

Mind you, we already knew his personal wealth surpasses the national budget of many nations and he has his own media – bearing his name too. Many of us knew but he now brazenly confirmed that he thinks of New York as his personal kingdom and of the public employees (NYPD) as his personal army. Of course, there’s another implication to this: he openly wages war on the rest of us. Pretenses are over.
