All hail Emperor Boomberg! Wielding his infinite wisdom and illegal powers, the leader of the Nanny State is saving us from ourselves one regulation at a time. First, he single handily eradicated disease and foul smelling-ness when he went after cigarettes. Then he thrust a knife into the epidemic of obesity in The Big Apple with a ban on trans-fats, and followed up his melee attack with a soda ban that made sure you never had too much sugar going down your gullet. But it's just. Not. ENOUGH! Bloomberg needs to do much, much more or else the individuals in New York City are just going to destroy themselves - so he's announced new and exciting plans to save us all!
Ok, seriously? All this guy is doing is ruining what used to be a decent place to live. Sure, it's always been expensive, but the progressive agenda is slowly taking away people's rights with a slippery slope of bans and regulations.
Now what is he doing?
NY Daily News explained that Bloomberg has called for:
- Create 10,00 parking spots for electric cars
- Start a composting program in Staten Island where people would recycle their food waste
- Ban styrofoam at restaurants and stores
- Add more electrical cars to the municipal fleet
"Let me just speak to the people of New York," Glenn said, "and I want to say this as kindly and gently as I possibly can: What the hell is wrong with you? Run for your stinking life."
"You have a dictator as your mayor. There is no two ways about this."
"Everything that they got going on now with all the recycling programs, they're going to double that. And by the way, that's not a goal. That's a mandate: We will double our recycling."
"I still, I don't understand people who don't want to chart their own course. I really don't," he explained. "You don't want to chart your own course, don't chart your (course). That's why I don't live in New York. Because you believe that you need somebody like Michael Bloomberg to babysit you the whole time.
"It's why I moved to Texas, because I know that Rick Perry understands that you've just got to keep the people out of your way. Just keep the people out of your way. Let the people do what they do and just keep the people from Washington out of your way so you can grow and you can move forward."
"I know I said this about three years ago. I have no ill will to anybody who wants to be enslaved by a government. It's just, you know, socialism is not my religion, the government is not my church, and Obama is not my God."
