The President of The Bloomberg College of Agriculture wants to be President of the United States.

But here’s what Composer Gregg Opelka had to say in the WSJ about Mayor Mike’s condescending attitude toward farmers:

Mike Bloomberg’s is the rarefied hauteur of the technocrat. Anyone who’s worked in an office since the 1990s has dealt with the IT overlord who tells you with a paternalistic smile that “It can’t be done that way” because of this or that technical mumbo-jumbo. The former mayor is that guy on steroids.

With his self-satisfied regard for technology, Mr. Bloomberg carries a palpable disdain for human craft. “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” he said during a 2016 talk (recently gone viral) at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School. “You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.” 

Meanwhile back at Bloomberg News here’s the lowdown on locusts.
