NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday said he is concerned over the growing number of complaints against the Occupy Wall Street protesters and warns there are limits to what he will tolerate.

We are constantly monitoring the situation to preserve public safety and guarantee the rights of all people in the city, Bloomberg said. No one should think that we wont take actions that we think are appropriate when we think they are appropriate.

11. I would argue that OWS is actually HELPING small business in the area
because people want to come down and see what it's all about. They come into the area, and patronize the small businesses there. Coffee shops, food trucks, street vendors all are making lots of money on this!

What a liar! He's just taking his orders from his corporate masters.

13. Totally agree
Doorways aren't being blocked, are they? So regular customers and newbies can go right in. Not to mention pizza deliveries. Hell, everything gets delivered in N.Y.C.

22. I actually like Bloomberg (can't say that about many politicians), but he is f.o.s. on this one.
What has "really hurt small businesses and families" is Wall Street and its thieves.

Amazing how you can make the headline far more accurate simply by dropping the first word.

No limits to what Bloomberg has tolerated and will tolerate from Wall Street, though.


Q. What's a billionaire turd?

A. A turd.
