Bailout was a mistake
President Bush and his henchmen lied again. Before signing the bill bailing out the fat cats of Wall Street, Bush and the treasury said if the bill is not signed, people will lose jobs. Why are they now slashing thousands of the jobs in the companies? Why are those billions of dollars injected into the companies not saving them? They say it will take months and years to see the impact and the situation will get worse. One day, like Alan Greenspan did, this country will realize that pouring hundreds of billions into Wall Street on the pretext of saving the common man is the biggest mistake ever committed by people in the highest office.

Term limit vote should have been people's choice
I am against term limits on anything. I voted against them twice. Mayor Bloomberg is most likely the best qualified to handle difficult financial problems for our city, but the fact that the city council overturned the will of the people by taking down the term limit barrier was not the right thing constitutionally, ethically or morally. Get that term limit issue back on the ballot for the next mayoral election.

Bloomberg only helping the rich get richer
Mayor Mike wants to save NYC from the financial crisis? So far hes given the Yanks and Mets new stadiums at the taxpayers expense, allowed rich landlords to build much-needed apartments with tax incentives and gave away more park land for private restaurants only he can afford. He must have a long list of friends to help out if he needs four more years in office.
