    Default There will be riots in the streets: Mayor Bloomberg warns

    Mayor Bloomberg today warned there will be widespread rioting on the streets if more jobs are not created.

    As it emerged the number of people applying for unemployment benefits in the U.S. jumped last week to the highest level in three months, the Mayor spoke out, insisting that if nothing is done Americans will start revolting.

    'We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs,' he said on his weekly radio show.

    'That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here.'

    His comments were in reference to the recent uprising in Egypt, which toppled president Hosni Mubarak, and protests in Spain by people outraged their government was spending millions on a papal visit rather than on dealing with unemployment.

    The comments came as President Barack Obama put pressure on Republicans to pass his jobs plan.

    Mayor Bloomberg added: 'The damage to a generation that can't find jobs will go on for many, many years.

    'At least he [Obama] has got some ideas on the table, whether you like those or not,' he said.

    'Now everybody's got to sit down and say we're actually gonna do something and you have to do something on both the revenue and the expense side.

    'When you start picking and choosing which groups do and do not, that's when it becomes unfair in a lot of people's minds. But we're all in this together.'

    Well if that is the case Mr. Mayor than you better start building more prisons, which come to think of it will create jobs, to put all the people rioting in.

    The Jobs Plan is not even worth the paper it is written on. It is absolute crap, the administration obviously does not even have a basic understanding of macro economics.

    When no one in your own party is willing to co-sponsor a bill, it is a good sign it isn't going to pass.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Maybe I'm stupid but seems like there would be some (R) willing to call the bluff & sponsor it just to see who squirms the most.

    I remember about three months ago, somebody leaked info coming from the Obama camp about his reelection campaign strategy. He was going to unleash class and racial warfare on the masses. They said it was going to be ugly.

    Looks like it may be.


    I am just glad I have firearms. Hippies don't. They are easy pickings too. All you have to do is drop a hackeysack on the ground and make sure you don't aim for the Birkenstocks. They can hypnotize a person while kicking the sack around.


    Lets have a revolution and see who wins. I am game for it.
