“Nanny” Bloomberg Knuckles Under

Big Gulp
The Big Gulp is back. New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling has struck down New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s big gulp ban on large sugary drinks.

Mayor Michael “Nanny” Bloomberg, who makes Ayn Rand seem like Mary Poppins, recently had his ban on sodas larger than 16 ounces overturned. This latest ban follows his past actions of getting salt and trans-fats banned, restricting painkillers to emergency room patients and formula for new mothers.

“Nanny” Bloomberg is just the latest example of a politician who thinks he knows better than we do what is good for us. He follows in the long-line of Puritans banning dancing, do-gooders banning alcohol, and all busybodies everywhere. These people think they know what is best for us, that their “enlightened” mind should guide all of us, the uneducated rabble. This thinking is annoying in any one but downright dangerous in a lawmaker.

He is no different than Judy Hensler telling on Beaver to his teacher, the Prius-driver lecturing you on how your SUV is evil, or people a hundred yards away telling you to put out your cigarette. This is a free country; we are free to take care of ourselves and make our own decisions and suffer the consequences of them. Our lives are our own business and the sooner “Nanny” Bloomberg and all the other old biddies figure it out the better.

One thought on ““Nanny” Bloomberg Knuckles Under

  1. First off, don’t you mean that he makes Ayn Rand look like Mary Poppins?

    But more importantly, would somebody tell me where it is written in black and white that some insane control freak like Bloomberg has the authority to do these kinds of things, or even ATTEMPT to do them?
