New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks just because he's rich, he can tell the rest of us how to live. Bloomberg made news this week when he proposed banning large soda drinks from stores, restaurants, and movie theaters. While Bloomberg could concern himself with battling poverty or improving our economy, he has chosen the role of Big Brother.
In the ultimate act of hypocrisy, Bloomberg signed a declaration making yesterday National Doughnut Day in New York. Not surprisingly, Governor Cuomo, who is a huge benefactor of Bloomies money pulled a Pontius Pilate and said he would not override this blatant violation of New Yorkers' rights. One consumer group was so upset by Bloomberg's ban, they took out a full page ad in the New York Times with him wearing a dress.
Why doesn't Bloomberg ban buffets and all you can eat restaurants next? What about chicken wings? They're bad for you, too. Bloomberg should worry about simple things like removing snow from New York's streets after three inch snowfalls. Could you imagine how scary it would be if this little tyrant became President?
