Death by Perambulation

NY’s Mayor Elite, Bloomberg, today has announced that those riding escalators ought to walk on the moving treads rather than patiently ride to their desired floor, regardless of the delicate children who may be injured along the way. This in an effort, I suppose, to pull the pounds off of fellow New Yorkers who are obese – like him.

Here is a man who wishes no one would smoke. A man who thinks that not serving a single large volume of soda to someone will lead them to drink less, rather than alternatively drinking several.

She, Huma Abedin, as contrite as her mentor, Hillary Clinton was, made another public statement alongside her husband saying that it’s all in the past; but apparently it is not.

The point is, as a society we can do much better than the Weiners of the World if we move away from two-party conditioned thinking.

There are an abundance of intelligent, thinking, focused, Independent candidates from which to choose, most of whom have little difficulty controlling any lingering adolescent impulses. As to Weiner: anyone in their late 40s who is that preoccupied with his genitals cannot be focused on the reality of the economic and social challenges we face.

I would expect this of a twelve-year-old...
