Cokehead, Womanizing, Fag’: Michael Bloomberg’s Book of ‘Wisdom’ Resurfaces

OPEN MOUTH, INSERT FOOT

The release of an unauthorized book of quotes by Michael Bloomberg paints a damning picture of the Democratic presidential candidate.

“Cokehead, womanizing, fag.” That’s the way Michael Bloomberg once characterized a competitor in New York’s financial industry, according to a book of quotes presented to the billionaire businessman for his 48th birthday in 1990.

The quote is one of a number of vulgar and degrading remarks, contained in a gag gift presented to Bloomberg by an employee, that may spell trouble for the former New York mayor as he attempts to convince Democrats he can topple Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

The tome, titled Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg, was published in full by the Washington Post on Saturday morning. It has been quoted at length over the years but has never been printed in full by a mainstream outlet.

The booklet was produced by Elisabeth DeMarse, who worked as Bloomberg’s chief marketing officer. “Yes, these are all actual quotes,” she wrote in her introduction. “No, nothing has been embellished or exaggerated.”

Some of the quotes are pure bathroom humor, like his comments on salesmanship that simply states, “Make the customer think he’s getting laid when he’s getting fucked.” Another says, “As Chuch Colsen put it: if you have them by their balls, their hearts and minds will follow.”

Others are highly sexist, like one that has a name redacted in the Post’s document. “What do I want? I want an exclusive, 10-year contract, an automatic extension, and I want you to pay me. And I want a blow job from [name redacted]. Have you seen [name redacted] lately? Not bad for fifty.”

The misogynistic, homophobic remarks predate the #MeToo era and show a sophomoric obsession with referencing oral sex. On the subject of computers, he said: “You know why computers will never take the place of people? Because a computer would say that the sex of the person giving you a blow job doesn’t matter.”

His company’s financial information computers “will do everything, including give you [oral sex]. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business,” he said in another remark.

Some of the quoted remarks are relatively mild, like, “The three biggest lies are: the check’s in the mail, I’ll respect you in the morning, and I’m glad I’m Jewish.”

Others are positively eyebrow raising, like, “The Royal Family—what a bunch of misfits—a gay, an architect, that horsey faced lesbian, and a kid who gave up Koo Stark for some fat broad.” He characterizes one competitor as, “Cokehead, womanizing, fag.”

The booklet is peppered with cartoons that depict Bloomberg in various poses, of which many are less than flattering, like him dressed as a Roman Centurion fighting off dogs with name tags like Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sacks and Citibank.

The booklet’s publication caps a bad week for Bloomberg, who has been dogged by unearthed comments on income inequality and racial profiling.

Bloomberg has not made a public comment on the publication of the booklet. A campaign spokeswoman said on Saturday, “Virtually all of this has been reported over the past two decades. In any large organization, there are going to be complaints—but Mike simply does not tolerate any kind of discrimination or harassment, and he’s created cultures that are all about equality and inclusion.”

The Post says it informed the Bloomberg campaign that it would be publishing the full booklet online, to which they were told by spokesman Stu Loeser, “Mike simply did not say the things somebody wrote in this gag gift, which has been circulating for 30 years and has been quoted in every previous election Mike has been in.” Loeser also told them, “Mike openly admits his words have not always lined up with his values and that way he has led his life and some of what he has said is disrespectful and wrong.”

The Post’s reporting also detailed newly unearthed lawsuits against Bloomberg that were either settled or dismissed and paint a disturbing picture of misogynistic behavior.

Ten Quick King Solomon Proverbs To Lighten Our Day

Ten Quick King Solomon Proverbs To Lighten Our Day

(PERSONALLY I BELIEVE THAT ALL PEOPLE NEED TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THESE WORDS EACH DAY) (OLDPOET56)

This is ten of King Solomon’s proverbs and shouldn’t take more than about two moments of your time. The dictionary says a proverb is a profound saying, maxim, or oracular utterance requiring interpretation.

  1. A just man walks in his integrity and his children that come after him shall be blessed because of his actions.
  2. Even a child is known by their actions whether they are pure and whether they are correct.
  3. The spirit of a man is like a candle to the Lord who searches all our inner thoughts.
  4. It is better to live on the corner of a house-top than to live in a mansion with a hate filled woman.
  5. He that keeps his mouth shut and his tongue from wagging keeps their own soul from trouble.
  6. If you see a person who is wise in their own deceit there is more hope for a fool than for that person.
  7. Evil men do not understand judgement but they that seek the Lord understand all things.
  8. He that turns away their ears from the Word of God even his prayers are an abomination.
  9. Give wine to those who are of heavy hearts. Let him drink and forget his poverty and remember their misery no more.
  10. A wise person will listen and will obtain learning and a person of understanding will listen to wise counsels. To fear the Lord is the beginning of knowledge but a fool despises wisdom and instruction.

Philosophy Of 12 Thoughts

Philosophy Of 12 Thoughts

 

Good seldom comes to a Prophet in their own lifetime

How good is a Painter? We don’t know, until they are gone

If you would have known it would be a classic, would you now have it

We walk down the Isle to the Glory of God, or to our own doom

How often have we not seen the rattler within our own path

When you hear God’s clap and feel the pain you know you have been had

To think all day of wisdom does not mean you somehow possess any of it

Electricity to your spine will fry all of what you have not had torched inside

What is Wisdom? Will we know it if we ever find it what what ever it is

If you say you believe in what The Man say, you got talent, you go far

To speak the truth is not taught as a fundamental staple to the child

All profits to the good of Humanity is a staple right of all of Humanity

(Theology Poem) My Depression

My Depression

 

My bones are weary with my age Lord

My mind speaks bitterness to my Soul

Lord do You despise my skin and my bones

Each night I search for the sins I committed

Lord am I wicked though my eyes see it not

 

My Lord I know that I am but clay and dust

At Your will Lord I know I will soon return to it

Youth You gave me yet I did not value or respect it

You granted me life Lord and many a pretty days

Yet I seemed to seldom live in the Light given to me

 

Woe be unto me Lord if I am counted among the wicked

I am not worthy Lord to have ever come out of the womb

Lord there is no joy in living if You turn Your Face from me

I have lived in a land of darkness made by my own hands

Show me Your mercy and wisdom, bring me to Your Light

 

Lord I have lived as a fool walking in my own darkness

Understanding and wisdom, Lord I have only a little

I stand as one mocked by both family and by the world

My Soul and my breath is always held in Your hands Lord

Darkness has been my depression as I now seek Your Light

 

(Philosophy/Poem) Can We Understand God’s Wisdom

Can We Understand God’s Wisdom

 

What is wisdom to the likes of a man

Is wisdom judgement, is judgement justice

If you cannot understand, is knowledge possible

For without knowledge can ones wisdom be valid

Can the simple or wise understand the secrets of God

 

A good father teaches his child to obey their mother’s instructions

An obedient child is a crown of glory to both parents and too theirs

Yet the child who refused instruction brings the family only shame

An open-pit awaits for those who are stiff-necked, blind and simple

The foolish and the simple refuse the clarity of the Light when given

The Lord has offered His children understanding if they will choose it

 

The Spirit of the Lord is poured out to all who will obey His instruction

Yet the ignorant and the cold-hearted think themselves to wise to accept it

When calamity and woes come down upon us like a hurricane from Hades

Do we fall down upon our knees or shake our fist at God and the Heavens

Should a person risk their life to safe the ones who always refused to listen

Do we die because we refused to except instruction to understand, God’s wisdom

(Philosophy Poem) The Good The Bad And The Evil

The Good The Bad And The Evil

 

It is better to be barren with virtue than to have children to feed to the fire

Children are indeed a blessing if we bring them up with the mercy and love

For virtue, love and truth will lead both the parent and child to immortality

Truth is that it is better to be blessed by our Creator than by wealthy mortals

True virtue is a prize that will lead those who have it to be given a crown by God

 

The love and the cheers of the unGodly has never saved anyone from the fire

The fruit of the evil one has roots only in the dust and it always fails in time

Fierce winds are sent to test both the evil as well as the pure children of God

Branches of the wicked will snap and be gathered to be burned in the Lords time

For it is true that produce of poison will kill both the eater as well as the producer

 

Old age is both the wisdom and the gray hair even to the young who is truly wise

Sometimes the righteous are called up by God to save them from evil that surrounds

For to live a blameless life is the true sign of wisdom and evil hates even their scent

The Lord sometimes calls up the young to save their Soul from the sinners among them

For it is better to die young and pure than to live long and grow evil with one’s years

The Good the Bad and the Evil ones will all face the Judgement Seat of Christ in time

 

 

(Philosophy Poem) Who Among Us Have Wisdom

Who Among Us Have Wisdom

 

All wisdom comes from The Lord above us

Yet do I know any of what The Lord gives us

Was not wisdom before there was a creation

The roots of wisdom are lain before man’s feet

Yet can a man understand even their own beginning

 

The Lord created wisdom from His own Throne

Wisdom He has poured out before us to feel and see

All that has ever lived has been touched with His glory

To fear The Lord is the very beginning of understanding

For the wisdom of a fool only begets even more fools

 

Wisdom has been poured upon us like a drenching rain

We understand the moisture but deny the love that made it

A fools anger flares up among us and creates our own ruin

Stay patient and calm and wisdom will surely come upon us

Wisdom is a gift to the Godly but foolishness to a blind sinner

Wisdom Thoughts

(WISDOM THOUGHTS)

 

Only idiots and sinners throw the stone.

If you have no love you do not have faith in the Lord.

If we cannot forgive we cannot truly love.

When we give a gift to G-d or to man do not let our mind look upon it a second time.

To be idle is to court poverty and famine.

Do good in all things and the Devil will never own you.

Having only a little through righteous is far better than having a lot through sin for in our end our balance is weighed.

(Wisdom of Solomon) (Here is a perfect description of our President!)

Wisdom will not enter a deceitful Soul or dwell in a body enslaved to sin. For the Holy and disciplined Spirit will flee from deceit and will leave foolish thoughts behind. For a lying mouth destroys the Soul.

Wisdom has no association with the wilful sinner.

Pray for understanding so that G-d’s wisdom may come to you.

For G-d loves nothing as much as a person who lives in Spiritual wisdom.

Fill your Soul with wisdom for against it evil cannot prevail.

Self control teaches us both justice and courage.

We will be punished by the very sins that we crave.

The merciless slaughter of children is from a heathen cult and their parents shall be weighed in the balance.

When we choose to judge, meditate upon the Lord’s mercy so that the Lord will judge us the same.

What we worship as our Idol shall be cast into the fire along with us.

To know the Lord is to live in His reightenous.

To live without the Lord is to walk ourselves into the fire.

 

(Poem) Pass It On

PASS IT ON

 

We were all born and we all will die

Breath is slapped into us and out

A to Z this is upon all our heads

Do we prosper or do we starve

Was there light in our darkness

 

Born to slave for the rich man’s crumbs

All work, no life, no play yet we try

Our Children and theirs, do they no us

Choices we made killed our inner Soul

Life without being loved is not a life at all

 

Love in our old age is truly hard to fathom

Work till you drop is the true path of the poor

We rent a piece of G-d’s property, for a while

For we in deed own nothing in this life at all

Wisdom, knowledge, love is life so pass it on

 

(Poem) Today Is Veterans Day

Today Is Veterans Day

 

Do we learn from our own inner thoughts

What is it that creates the things we believe

Did we have a bad childhood, did the family care

Good examples, bad examples, they are everywhere

Could it be the corrections that we need are inside us

 

Have we ever worked for the greater good of others

Having a Coward for our Leader does demonize our fiber

With a person what is it we decide is worthy of our time

If we cannot understand our own self, how can we grow

Our likes, like faith and hatred, do define who we are

 

Young children pay attention to the examples around them

The child will understand, the babe is wise to our flaws

Self sacrifice, is this something that we have ever considered

Do we have freedom to breathe, to live a life as we please

Much blood has been spilled for our freedom that is never free
