So "King Bloomberg" Gets Waiver From Bermuda Gun BAN!

NYT

"The mayor also takes along a police detail when he travels, flying two officers on his private plane and paying as much as $400 a night to put them up at a hotel near his house; the city pays their wages while they are there, as it does whether Mr. Bloomberg is New York or not. Guns are largely forbidden in Bermuda — even most police officers do not use them — but the mayor’s guards have special permission to carry weapons. A spokesman for the Police Department declined to comment." http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/26/nyregion/26bermuda.html?pa...

"His aides know better than to schedule public events after Friday mornings, allowing the mayor to make his getaways to Bermuda on Friday afternoon and be back in New York by Sunday evening. (Of the 17 Fridays since Dec. 31, the mayor had no public events scheduled after 10 a.m. on 13 of them.)"

"Bear" with them.

(Don't you dare to bear your arms, though. It's unwelcome.)

Money. Plain and simple. Name recognition.

It is the same formula most politicians use to get elected and to stay in power.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

BTW, Mayoral race coming up in NYC, pro-pot candidate

ex-councilman Sal Albanese wants to legalize weed and do away with all of Bloomberg's nanny state laws and wants to fire the police chief.
