I agree with all of you, but for a good laugh, this is pretty scathing critique of bloomberg--in "historical context" represents everything that is wrong with this system. (this reporter is hilarious)... Bloomberg is the 12th richest man in america--so he is not only a "symbol" Bloomberg news runs wall street. http://current.com/shows/countdown/videos/keiths-special-comment-why-occupy-wall-street-needs-michael-bloomberg

I agree the focus should be on direct action to keep people in their homes
or take foreclosed homes.
Ultimately, we also need alternative support mechanisms.
I don't want a new major. I want all majors gone.
I just thought I'd throw an idea out there,
but now I'm against it.

I'm coming down on RJ's side here. Symbolic victories won't stop foreclosures, end police oppression, create jobs, or give food and shelter to those without it. They'll make us feel good for a moment, but I don't think that's enough. I'd love to see Bloomberg go, but unless he's replaced by a genuine radical (which I imagine the Deputy Mayor is not), our problems will remain, if not worsen.

I totally agree. It's a clear (and potentially winnable) demand that will resonate with millions! Push it!
