Nanny Bloomberg just can’t help himself, he just needs to fix everyone’s life through regulation, because people just need to be controlled. Or in the words of a certain super villain, “The world is a mess and I just… need to rule it.”
To that effect Bloomberg plans to expand his soda ban, taking it to the level of banning 2 liter sodas from your pizza deliveries and pitchers of soda from your children’s birthday parties and mixers at bars , because clearly those are meant for one person to guzzle down.
No surprise that this, like most other liberal regulations, will raise costs for businesses.
So Bloomberg has built his own little fiefdom in New York City and he wants to spread his influence from one urban corner of New York state, out into the rest of New York state…and then THE WORLD! *Maniacal Laughter*
His excuse to infringe on people’s personal liberty and responsibility? Do it for the children! The favored excuse of liberals when they want to make other people feel guilty for defending their liberty.
You have exactly the right question, but you’re asking it the wrong way. Keep in mind we’re trying to save the lives of these kids — particularly kids… The state should do exactly the same thing in stores. – Bloomberg via Breitbart
Bloomberg’s inane fight to regulate the health of his citizens has reached everything from what food you can donate to homeless shelters and yet another regulation, this one on plastic-foam (styrofoam) containers, that will raise prices for businesses in New York City.
Yes, that sounds like exactly what a city with an already above average unemployment rate needs.
Anyone with any common sense would be questioning Nanny Bloomberg’s sanity at this point and wondering why he, a man who puts salt on his pizza, is spending so much time, energy, and money on programs to control how everyone else in his city eats.
