Is Mayor TenHaken secretly training to become a Liberal?

Before everyone chews me out for the title of the post, I was being sarcastic. But one has to wonder. I have been researching Bloomberg Philanthropies just out of curiosity since PTH has been taking night courses with the organization.

Besides being advocates of Innovation, they also support;

Abortion Rights

Environmentalism

Gun Control

Federalizing Education

Socialized Healthcare

Public Art

Reducing Ethnic Disparities

Bloomberg has also been accused of using his charitable work to influence his political aspirations;

Critics of Bloomberg argue that he has long used his personal wealth to buy political support. For instance, the Financial Times wrote that Bloomberg’s political contributions had freed him to pursue his chosen reforms in the city using it as a laboratory for testing ideas inspired by or subsequently influencing his philanthropy. Items included in this list were tough antismoking rules and a ban on trans-fats in food.

The liberal in me is glad to see PTH taking courses that may make him become more progressive, but I wonder if the public is aware of what kind of organization he is tying the city to? Sometimes I wonder if he is aware?

You know, I once had a liberal petition circulator reach out to me to sign his petition, and he made mention of the fact that I was wearing Chuck Taylors, which he said gave him confidence I would sign his petition. Oh, and he was wearings Chucks, too.

I don’t see anything wrong with taking in as many different views as you can. Most conservatives and liberals refuse to do that.

I agree with Dan. The art of listening to your opposing side and TRULY TRYING to understand why they think and feel the way they do is always good.
