It bothers me a little that a man with Bloomberg's resources has not examined the details of his "luck" by this point.
But it is absolutely reprehensible that he remains unwilling to do so. Willfully remaining ignorant makes his ignorance blameworthy.

@16, sometimes baffled outrage is the only possible response, and the only possible expression is shouting.

That right there is practically a push poll.

Oct 22, 2012 YoungBS commented on Council Begs Mayor to Stop Blocking SPD Oversight Monitor.
The process of building consensus for reform gets completely short-circuited if any party gets a veto over continuing. At best, that's what the mayor is doing here; letting obstructors derail the process.
It looks even more like he's doing the obstructing himself, though.
Oct 18, 2012 YoungBS commented on Either Romney Was Lying to GOP Base During the Primaries....
Mitt's a good illustration of the downside of having the core principle of one's self-concept be "I am a good person" when you live in a bubble that protects you from all evidence to the contrary.
Result: nearly narcissistic levels of rationalization and self-referential logic.

That was an entirely respectful and civil way to handle someone who had nothing more to say than, "Nuh-uh!!"

And despite how completely unreasonable and disrespectful Fischer and his ilk are, we're better served by remaining civil when we cut them off. And cut them off we should, probably sooner than 5 minutes.
