Worst mayor ever: Bloomberg’s soda ban passes 9-0

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Mayor Bloomberg’s day of glory has arrived: his soda ban has passed by a shocking vote to 9 to 0. Sorry New York City, no more “sugary drinks” for you. Glenn, who is broadcasting from NYC today, doesn’t seem to be regretting his move to Dallas, hundreds of miles away from the dictator that is Mayor Bloomberg.

” Mayor Bloomberg is an evil, maniacal, out‑of‑control mayor,” Glenn said after reading the news.

“He changed the law so he could run again and then he changed it right back so nobody else can do it.  He has changed the streets here in New York.  Did you see he’s added more bike paths and everything else?  He’s trying to turn us into Paris.  And he just thinks it would be better if there are no cars in the streets.  Well, gee, I think it would be great if there were no dictators for mayors.  What do you say?  That’s up to the people to decide,” he added.

Stu pointed out that even in New York City the soda ban was wildly unpopular, but Bloomberg’s Board of Health still voted 8-0 in favor, with one member of the group abstaining.

    He is trying to turn NYC into his own barony and under his communist control. In short he is doing in micro what Obama seeks in macro.

      What do you bet Bloomberg & his cronies guzzle the stuff when partying in their dachas, much like the former leaders of the USSR who used to live the high life while the rest of their people were denied luxuries. This is what the Hypocrat Party has become, the 21st century version of the Soviet leadership! Read “Animal Farm” if you want to see where we are headed.

    What does this do? I’ll just buy 2. They just want to tell you what to do, and too TAX food and beverages they deem “BAD”. One step at a time, first fat is bad, next food that makes you fat “bad”, third we want you to be healthy, fourth, tax makes it more expensive so you will use less. Fifth: the TAX. For your own good.

    Maybe we should ban idiots from taking office. I have an idea for a protest go in front of where ever Bloomnazi lives and chug a two letter bottle of soda just to tick him off.

      That seems to be a trend, doesn’t it?

      It wasn’t really about the voters ~ if you meant the people of NYC ~ it was about a handful of people (9 ~ well 8) feeling like they were doing the right thing to help combat obesity. They were ill-informed at the least, but they were also handpicked by that mayer to be on his Board of Health. So really, how else were they going to vote? The people when polled? 60% thought it was a bad idea.

      It really is a sad state of affairs when the choices of the people are ignored because some… one person… feels like that they have the answer for all.

      • Kevin52

        What is really sad is that only 60% thought it was a bad law. The other 40% either agreed with the law or were to busy sucking the gov’t tit to care.

    The ban is interesting in that the voters most likely are not in favor of the ban.

    But those who voted for the ban will remain in office because voters only vote with their pockets, and those in power are filling voters pockets with goodies that are bad for you.

    And a little bit more freedom is taken away…

    How Stupid. How much beverage is really in a 16 oz. drink. Stop and think, how much of that is ice? Totally stupid. When does Government take overs stop?

      When we finally say enough is enough and replace every single one of them. Ballot box or cartridge box. Unfortunately, it is looking like the only option left is soon going to be the latter rather than the former.

    You’ll see people mainlining drugs on street corners and the police tripping over them in pursuit of the guy with the Slurpie. America has become the new Rome.

      Oh, Scott, it’s all about priorities, isn’t it? Did I understand that B.O. flew off to a fundraiser in Vegas after the embassies in Libya and Egpyt were stormed? Seems that getting reelected is his first priority.

  • NWFL Conservative

    I am so glad to know that with our embassies being overrun and our ambassadors sodomized and murdered, that fat Zoo Yawkiz will no longer be able to get “sugary” soft drinks in restaurants. I don’t know about you but I feel safer already. What an retarded putz ol’ Nanny Bloomy is.

    Taking away man’s ability to self-discipline himself by ‘forced’
    discipline is an insult and attack against the mind. It eliminates values, if
    everything that is bad for you is eliminated so is man’s ability of self-discipline,
    as it would not even exist not even knowing what it is.

    If everything that is good for you is the
    only choice therefore then there is no choice, no ability to determine any
    higher value to anything. Anyone with the ability of self discipline would not
    even be known to exist, no rewards, no achievement, an inability at measuring
    anything, everyone would be the same hence; mediocrity= Marxism/communism
    implemented by those with a catastrophic inferiority complex as they are
    compelled with the incessant need to dominate and control others in order to
    feel safe, secure and validated at the level of their own flawed mediocrity

      Ouch! Well said, laura.

    I’ll bet they can still buy over 16oz. of beer or liquer in one serving still.

    Is the Mayor setting up NYC to be prepared for a B.O. victory in Nov.? Won’t the
    “food police” be more powerful then?

    Now that the soda ban is in effect, it’s time to move on to the salt, baby formula, and just tonight, it was announced by Drudge that regulations are going up against an ancient form of Orthodox Jewish circumcision.
    The city will be ever so much nicer once everyone who can has fled the area.

    Isn’t this ban unconstitutional? I would point out that per Article 1 section 8 para 3 that regulating interstate commerce is a Federal power. So per the 10th amendment their soda ban is unconstitutional.

    Since sodomy has been proven to more dangerous to one’s health, will he also ban that. My point here is that New Yorkers have got what they ask for. When liberals get in power they take away things that THEY deem bad for an individual instead of allowing the freedom of an individual too chose what is bad for them personally.

    • Kevin52

      Now Mitchell, that is not entirely true. While Bloomberg & friends protect New Yorkers from dangerous soda drinks, they are all for legalizing pot and other dangerous drugs. Smoke a legal cigarette and be arrested but smoke pot and get a pat on the back even though the pot is more dangerous.

      • Anonymous

        How is pot more dangerous? Maybe you are just full of BS!

    This mayor has proven time and time again that he is certifiably insane and why people keep voting for him is beyond me. When you vote for lunatics over and over again don’t be surprised at what you get. My Mother-in-law always said people get the government they deserve (she was a Castro victim) and she was 100% correct about that.

    Brings new meaning to the term “Soda Jerk”.

  • Kevin52

    The Mayor & Michelle Obama are the newest thought police to hit the scene. How does this little tin horn dictator have this kind of power in the first place? Soft drinks are legal in all the U.S. last I checked. If I were part of that city I would challenge this in court and I am surprised that is not already taking place.
