How is Mayor Mike Bloomberg NOT a dictator? Case in point:
“The offered reasoning for the #OWS eviction? The same canard as the last time Bloomberg wanted to sweep away protesters: “public health and safety.” Never mind that Occupy Wall Street has continually cleaned the park itself, or that health experts who have visited the park have pronounced it sanitary, or that even Bloomberg could cite only one incident that threatened public safety in his statement about the eviction. No, such “facts” were turned away, just as the police sought to turn the media’s cameras elsewhere. All this while, as Matt Taibbi put it last week, “in the skyscrapers above the protests, anything goes.” Nobody arrested the bankers for pushing fraudulent loans and subprime mortgage investments, or the ratings agencies and government regulators that neglected their duties and helped Wall Street crash the global economy. But putting tents in a public park? Time to bring out the batons and pepper spray.”

- Mayor of New York City
I don’t believe New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg will ever resign or admit that he’s a dictator. He’s too much of an egomaniac, like all dictators. But I’d like to prove that A LOT of people—from all over America and the world—want Mike Bloomberg out of power immediately. Please do consider signing the #RESIGNBloomberg Petition and sharing your thoughts in a comment.
For #OWS and #ThePeoplesLibrary
