Rules for Thee, But Not for Me

On my favorite gun control blog, Mikeb302000, I ran across an article on the latest abuse of power by a mayor in New York. And no, it’s not Michael Bloomberg.

Apparently, the mayor of Rochester, one Lovely Warren:


has decided that she needs two armed bodyguards, including one who is her uncle. This, of course, is what she needs, but she supported the New York SAFE Act, a gun control measure that places new infringements on the already violated rights of New Yorkers to own and carry guns.

Hypocrisy, much? Abuse of power, perhaps?

And so, with apologies to Alan Jay Lerner, I present to you, “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”

All I want is a room somewhere
Far away from the unwashed air
In my mayorial chair.
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?

Lots of chocolates for me to eat,
Bodyguards all packing heat,
Including Uncle Reggie sweet.
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?

Oh, my people abso-blooming-lutely disarmed,
And I won’t ever budge to help
No matter how much they’re harmed.

The people’s rights resting in my hands,
My oath of office flows away like sand,
Corrupted power makes me feel so grand.
Oh. wouldn’t it be loverly?

Loverly, loverly, wouldn’t it be loverly?

    A poem with content and a proper rhyme! Thank you!

    Thanks for letting me know I am not the only one tired of these hypocrites who don’t care that their constituents have no protection but know they need it badly. Any New York laws against hiring the relatives? Someone please turn her in!

    You’re failure to see the difference is laughable. Celebrities or people in the political limelight are often targets of the deranged gun owners. They need special protection. Ordinary citizens do not. It’s that simple.

    In addition you failed to notice that the NY SAFE Act does not disarm anyone. It restricts certain aspects of gun ownership but to consider it tantamount to total disarmament of the poor and vulnerable populace, is typically mendacious on your part.

      New York makes every effort possible to disarm good citizens. And no, I refuse to accept a special class of people who get more benefits and protections than the rest of us. We cannot tolerate an aristocracy here.

      If you want to call that mendacious, it only shows how willing you are either to submit or to perpetrate violations of rights on others.

        Well, I’d be happy if all good citizens had full exercise of gun rights in every state and territory of the United States.

        Me too. I’m just saying that it’s hypocritical if her private guards are carrying guns that are not SAFE act compliant.

      Some animals are more equal than others, right Mike? So those people in lesser means lives are not as important as those well off? There are but a few in the limelight but millions of others are more often targeted for the change in their pocket or the shoes on their feet don’t deserve the same protections simply because they don’t have a “limelight” shining on them? Don’t you believe EVERYONE deserves to live, Mike? That’s what you have told me before. Mike you are a hypocrite of the highest order. All for thee and none for me.

      The New York safe act does intend to disarm as many as possible and there is plenty of proof now to show that. But it wasn’t enough, they want to do more. NY is going full stupid and some are leaving there because of it. Others are leaving for other reasons but those reasons are that other laws enacted there are going full stupid.

      Mike, I don’t consider myself rich, but well off and I and I alone worked for what I have and no one else is going to take it. Unless I am willingly give it to you, you don’t deserve one thin dime from me, if someone tries to take it, well,,,,,,,,,. Can I afford armed guards? Maybe. Why should I trust a paid gun carrier in my name to protect me when I can do it myself, better, cheaper. Also I would NEVER pay someone (armed guard) to live with the ultimate action taken, if needed, to protect me. But that’s me.

      ALL life is sacred. Those willing to do evil things are willing to risk and forfeit their lives.
      ALL life is sacred and have the right to protect themselves whether by doing so themselves or hiring someone to do so for them.
      It is the hypocrite who surrounds himself with protections while making laws to disarm the common people. There will ALWAYS be evil people and they will ALWAYS have the tools to take advantage, they are called CRIMINALS! They are called criminals because they don’t obey the law. Law abiding will obey and be disarmed and unprotected if you have your way Mike.

      You Mike, your a hypocrite.

      Sorry Greg, but I could go on and on. Hypocrites just rub me the wrong way and had to vent a little.
