Bloomberg implied farming doesn't take intelligence in 2016 comments | Fox News
Bloomberg: "I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer... Now comes the information economy... You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter."
When you're not sure which is more breathtaking, the ignorance or the arrogance...! This is the frickin' idiot that's running for the Democratic Presidential ticket. I have to say, I don't like any of them, but this is over the top. "We, the intelligentsia," indeed. Horse puckey!
From one of the comments: "A farmer can live without Mike Bloomberg but Mike Bloomberg can't live without a farmer, and I will side with the farmer." Amen! Yes. So will I. Any day of the week! Bloomberg is a menace, on many levels. I have never liked him, for his opposition to the Second Amendment, but bashing farmers makes me despise him on a whole different level.
I will say one thing: this male (I won't call him a man), and the rest of his "intelligentsia" (read: the arrogant coastal / urban elite) couldn't live a week without what they disparage as "flyover country," and the basket of deplorables, bitterly clinging to God and guns, who live there.
This individual is not only a sorry excuse for a political candidate, but he is a sorry excuse for a human being. Not that that's new information, for me! I've known it for a long time; this is merely additional grist for the mill. I'd say he's is full of bullsh_t, but that would be insulting to bulls. Putrid pustule of a person!
Because I hate to end on a negative note – Paul Harvey, among others, is one who thought of farmers rather differently than Bloomberg. Here he is:
