There is no better example of a government busybody than the idiot who has been mayor or New York City for way too long.
Michael Bloomberg is pushing a law that would make it illegal to sell large sugary drinks in New York beginning in March.
This is all part of the anti-obesity campaign.
Apparently, there are a lot of Big people in the Big Apple.
Bloomberg says that obesity is a problem and he says he’s doing what the people want their mayor to do.
Think he’d be willing to prove that with a referendum?
Here’s what I would ask the mayor if I were at the press conference when this stupid law was introduced:
“Mr. Mayor, if you’re really concerned about all the big bellies that you see in the city, why wouldn’t you outlaw the sale of beer?”
Call me crazy but I think that beer might be contributing to some of those beer bellies.
I don’t know about you, but, I’ve noticed that, when people drink beer, they also tend to eat lots of potato chips, peanuts and nachos. Maybe even pizza.
How much skinnier would people be a year from today if tomorrow the federal government outlawed the sale of pizza and beer?
How do people like this get elected?
A bigger question: How the hell do they get re-elected?
