Bloomberg is out of control
As I've written before, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks he has the right to control residents. Under his new law, pizza parlors are now forbidden from delivering two liter soda bottles along with pizzas in New York. What's next? No blue cheese? From the New York Post...
Typically, a pizzeria charges $3 for a 2-liter bottle of Coke. But under the ban, customers would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at a total cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount of soda.
“It’s ludicrous,” said Robert Bookman, a lawyer for the New York City Hospitality Alliance. “It’s a sealed bottle of soda you can buy in the supermarket. Why can’t they deliver what you can get in the supermarket?”
Even places like Chuck E. Cheese will no longer be able to sell pitchers of soda at children's birthday parties under Bloomberg's draconian rules. I try to advocate good health, but when did it become the government's job to tell it's citizens how to live? Bloomberg is a tyrant who cannot even plow the street's of his city after a minor snowfall. But he thinks it's governments' job to tell people how to live. The scary part?: He wants to be our next President.
