Another skeleton came crawling out of Mike Bloomberg’s closet and it is not good for the former New York City Mayor.
Bloomberg’s past has come leaking out since he shot up the polls and the knives are out on both sides to take him down.
Trump is taking his shots but so are the Democrats who are facing two bad choices – Bernie and Bloomberg – both with enough baggage to keep home a good portion of the Dem base.
For example here is Bloomberg mocking American farmers and the American worker:
“The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years and we could teach processes. I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” Bloomberg said.
“It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.”
“Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow and you can have a job.”
“And we created a lot of jobs. At one point, 98 percent of the world worked in agriculture, now it’s 2 percent in the United States.”
Bloomberg kept going: “Now comes the information economy and the information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with technology and the skill sets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze, and that is a whole degree level different.”
“You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter. It’s not clear the teachers can teach or the students can learn, and so the challenge of society of finding jobs for these people, who we can take care of giving them a roof over their head and a meal in their stomach and a cell phone and a car and that sort of thing.”
While Bloomberg mocks the intelligence of the American worker it should be noted that Boeing may go bankrupt because they outsourced software coding to cheap labor in India.
“But the thing that is the most important, that will stop them from setting up a guillotine someday, is the dignity of a job,” Mike said.
Bloomberg added, “the problem is not the redistribution of wealth, it is the job where you go in every day.”
