Russell Simmons
should pipe down -- at least according to Ben Stein, who tells TMZ, he's "very impressed" with Mayor Bloomberg's response to Hurricane Sandy in NYC ... even considering the homeless situation.

We posted a video of Simmons early yesterday, in which the hip hop mogul criticized Bloomberg for overlooking homeless people in the Sandy relief efforts -- saying NYC's homeless were "f**ked" after the storm ravaged the city.

But later yesterday, Stein told us, NYC seems to be "incredibly well-prepared. I'm very impressed frankly. I think they've done quite a good job."

When we asked about Simmons' comments regarding NYC's homeless -- Stein replied, "I didn't think about that, but considering the magnitude of the disaster they're doing fine."

I'm blown away by Kim K.'s response to being peed on by Ray J — effortlessly catapult from that into a empty career of nothing by trading on her increasingly diminishing looks and 'plumpness'.

Who gives a rat's ass what Ben Stein thinks of anything?

I am blown away daily by the amount of face time TMZ gives to people like Stein. What has he contributed to society for his opinion to be of value?

Ben Stein is a douchebag who doesn't care about anyone but himself. Please take him off TMZ, we don't care about what he has to say, he's full of hatred for the common man.

Just the response one can expect from Willard's followers.
Too involved with their fortunes and how they can make more.
No thoughts of other people.
The homeless, anywhere, are not even a blip on their radar.

Al Gore talked about NY under water years ago in AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH because of Global Warming. Mayor Bloomberg didn't heed the warning. Hopefully he will now. If NY had listened to the scientists' consensus about Global Warming they would have built a Sea Wall / levee to withstand Superstorm Sandy. And if people were really smart they should never rebuild so close to the ocean again. Insurance companies should threaten witholding insurance to those who do. There should be a massive change in our efforts to build up renewable energy to make us self sufficient & off the grid- solar wind & biofuel, & off course better for our environment.

That's Right    

Oh okay you didn't think about the homeless like Russell did? You didn't think about them not having a shelter to protect them from the high winds and the flood areas where they sleep, because you rich folks have options when stroms hit. You didn't think about how cold they are, and how dangerous it is for the homeless to be stuck outside during a strom. Thanks to those who did think about the homeless and did something about it.

New Obama slogan has long ties Marxism.
~
"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,"

The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

Ben Stein said he "didn't think about" the homeless, but then speculated they were fine.

How would he know?
