Mayor Bloomberg on Boston Bombing: "Our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

"[W]e live in a complex word," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said today, when asked about the Boston Marathon bombing. "[Y]ou’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

More, from the New York Observer:

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

“Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11,” he said.

"Madison would have shot this guy in the face."

PERFECT!

(You made me breathe in coffee... about choked to death!)

What would the Founders do?

Don't let Bloomberg know you almost choked

on coffee. It will be another notch in his belt for saving his city from another POTENTIAL KILLER !

Question...

Why is he still allowed to be mayor, he has shown an over the top disregard for the people. Please tell me I'm not the only one who on waking in the morning, checks their computer in hopes of reading a group of American patriots much ballsier than myself, has done the right thing and their duty as stated in the Declaration of Independence, after the long train of abuses has thrown off these people. I can't imagine it would take many of these acts before it would catch on like wild fire, before we knew it all the political criminals and their protectors would be exposed and taken out of office. The criminal politicians aren't going to stop until someone stops them and we know the voting system is a joke. I was raised in the 1950s we dream big.

Or something like it?

What would the Founders do?

Back in the olden days Ms. Mayor.

The terrorists were the Red Coats, The French, The Spanish, And of course the Native terrorists, The Injuns, The Soviets, The Nazis. Oh how far we have come from those peaceful days of No Wars, No spies, No Infidels, No Terrorists. Boomberg YOU ARE A RICH OVER_EDUCATED FOOL!

Yes we know there are people

Yes we know there are people that want to take away our freedoms one of them is named Mayor Bloomberg. And yes something has to change, like your removal from office.

Please New York vote this guy out of office, along with South Carolina getting rid of that blight named Lindsey Grahm.

It allows change

Hey Bloomberg, the Constitution allows for changes.
The good news (for the people) is that it does not allow one, or a minority group to change it.
It takes the MAJORITY, the will of the people.
So, why don't you start practicing, and upholding your oath.

It might be easier for you to change your oath of office, if you don't like the Constitution. Another question, Why did you run for office...if you can't abide by the oath for that office?
Mayor Bloomberg and Lindsey Graham are both enemy combatants and should be sent to Gitmo as soon as possible, and if they say they want a lawyer, tell them they don't get one.

No, The proper phrase is

SHUT UP!!

Laurelai

Another Name for the

Another Name for the TERMINATION LIST.

THe List keeps growning.

I have a fantasy one of those...

It's chock full o' crooked politicians, past and present!

: )

What would the Founders do?

A Public offical saying this = Treason

He is giving aid and comfort to the enemy by showing he is not loyal to the United States Constitution.

Agree

Ok....... so where are all the people who have sworn an oath

to protect and defend the Constitution? Seems to me that this is a "Domestic Enemy" if ever there was one.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

So you want to cater to their desire to remove our freedoms.....

by beating them to the punch? Shame on you, Mayor Bloomberg!

To Mr.Bloomberg

We know there are people that whant to take away our freedoms. They should be tried and prosecuted by the law. Lets start with YOU

Nope, sorry, thats not the

Nope, sorry, thats not the correct interpretation at this point in time

Thankyou for your patience

Sincerely
Mr Mayor

I need not pledge any allegiance to the changes in the Republic.

Contract breached by government is null in void. Congress can pay their own debts. Where to I apply for all my witholdings to be returned?

Free includes debt-free!

2 favorite progressive arguments against the Constitution

1. It is archaic (or old, quaint, or from a by gone era)
2. The world is more complex, today

Neither progressive "argument" for dumping the Constitution ever get's explained much beyond that.

He could not be more wrong.

He could not be more wrong. All of our troubles come from ignoring the constitution. If we had not been doing illegal unconstitutional things in the middle east for the last 60 years we would not have billions of people who hate the usa and these bombings would never have happened.

hmm

Can he actually be voted out or is he that much of a dictator already?

you know, you gotta be

you know, you gotta be somekind of arogant, to assume, that if YOU'RE willing to give up a right, that everyone else should expect to do so too......if thats the case, you really dont understand what a right is Mr Mayor.......you're a bit like a yuppie giving advice to a decorator on how he should paint his wall

"New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody

Else"

Because you're one of those people who want to take away freedoms? I see what you did there, you admitted fascist.

You have got to be kidding me

"We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms"

This coming from a fucking moron that tired to ban soda?

New Yorkers deserve what they get.....if

they vote him in again, UNLESS, of course, he cheats at the voting machines.

Tell him to go back to England, then, because we don't want him here.

Sooo... It's a fight over who gets to take away our freedoms?

"our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change" because "there are people who want to take away our freedoms."

*facepalm*

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

I get that the founders by no

I get that the founders by no means meant for their Constitution to stand the test of time. They expected it to be changed and modified, which is why they outlined the means of doing so.

It is all well and good to say that the Constitution is antiquated. However, if you want to change it, the document itself tells you how. Go ahead and change it. That is what it is there for.

DR. NO----The Founders meant every word they said...

Do you think they meant to have the MILITARIZED POLICE search our homes forcibly?

Do you think they meant to have the GOVERNMENT confiscate our guns?

You are a...................TROLL.......no doubt. You disgust me.
