Judge Andrew Napolitano: Mother bloomberg is a meglomaniac if she thinks she can take away the free choices and make those choices for us. He lacks that authority under the constitution and under the laws that govern him...(video)

This is why Bloomberg has to spend $100 million to get elected (and still only won narrowly)

Do you think that New Yorkers have had about enough of Bloomberg yet?

Yes, we New Yorkers have had enough of Bloomberg. He is term-limited and will leave office at the end of this term.

Of course, my fellow New Yorkers will probably elect somebody worse.

I sincerely hope the judge is right.

I think Bloomberg and the nitwits who keep electing him would be happier in some European socialist hell hole. Why don't they just pack up and go there instead of trying to shrink America to fit their nightmare? Don't they know they're being laughed at from coast to coast?

Yeah, and seat belt laws would NEVER be allowed as a primary reason for a traffic stop. We just want non-smoking sections, it would NEVER be banned on private property...

Ooops, oh wait.....

OK Liberals...you wanna ban items because of the health impact on people AND the added costs to our health care system? Well, then let’s ban GAY SEX.... do you realize the health risks that are associated with that type of behavior and the COST BURDEN on health insurance: http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/homosexuality/ho0075.html

New Yorkers in general, and Manhattanites in particular, are the most narrow-thinking group of people I have ever met. Yes, it is a “post-modern” secularist and of course left-leaning orthodoxy, but overall the uniformity of opinion, the group think, and the response one sees to “incorrect” opinions are amazingly consistent among the majority of New Yorkers.

Liberal Argument against: But, but, you can’t ban a consensual act between two people for the sake of “health care costs” that would be mean!!

My Argument: Me and myself and a Can of Cola can either be two consenting adults or a threesome and damned if don;t enjoy and/or get a lot more pleasure out of drinking a Soda than I do having relations with another person. And gettign rid of excess fat is a lot easier than getting rid of an incurable life ending STD.

Liberal: .....

Me: Dind’t think of that did ya, liberal McIdiot!

The smoking outdoors ban is ridiculous. I spent the last few days in New York, and I noticed that there were a number of people sitting on park benches here and there sneaking a smoke, so maybe there’ll be a general rebellion against it.

Meanwhile, I noticed some genuine health hazards, such as the derelicts urinating in the phone enclosures and subway stairs, elderly immigrants hacking and spitting all over the place (spitting is known to spread TB, which is a problem in the immigrant Asian community), etc.

There are certainly some public health issues that do need legal enforcement, but “outdoor second-hand smoke” isn’t one of them.

You are correct. However, there is a growing group of closet conservatives that are “coming out.”

I practice medicine on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and when I give my opinions about Obamacare, or when my patients see the photos of my 2 active-duty military kids on the credenza, the floodgates open and they start to confess their true feelings.

Obama will win New York, but not by the same margin as in 2008.

I cast my first Presidential vote while still a New Yorker - I voted for Reagan. 4 years later, I repeated that vote, but by then I was living in Delaware - not exactly a hotbed of conservatism!

I know some Conservatives that live in the city. They are definitely growing.

I, as a life long New Yawker am sick and tired of Nanny Bloomberg —first it was the smoking in bars (which I really didn't mind because I don't smoke. But then it is the war on trans fats and now sugary drinks. You think with all that money he could occupy himself with other pursuits. Nanny you're such a YENTA, go home and make some Kreplach. Yup, someone worse will come down the horse trail for our mayoral election next year. CHRISTINE QUINN -- our own Rosie O'Donnell has her eye on the office....or is it the orifice? She has no support in the boroughs...plus she was one of the main ones to jump on Bloomie's coattails regarding pissing on term limits which the folks voted for.

What you didn’t mind was the camel getting it’s nose in the tent and now you are getting the hump. We cannot ever be complacent when it comes to protecting freedom, or we will lose even more!

from observation, NYC population doesn't appear to have an obesity issue.

Quinn thinks she has the nomination in the bag, but I'm sure Charles Baron and perennial candidate Freddy Ferrer will have something to say about that. All of them are the same, but I love when they attack each other.

I was reading some comments on the news articles about this earlier and was shocked at how many people supported it. Some said, we should try it to see if it works. These people are fools and it’s the fools like them that keep voting the socialist bast**ds in office.

If I lived in New York I would walk around with an enormous drink all the time. They can’t prevent people from filling their own giant sized jugs with sugary cocktails.

I though that Bloomberg was term limited to two terms, but he got the lapdog city council to change it so he could run for a third term? Did the waiver limit him to three terms only?

(Personally, I'd like to see Bloomie taken 50 miles out to sea and thrown overboard. He'd survive because crap floats.)

Bloomberg may lack constitutional authority, but when has that ever stopped nanny states from trying to run our lives? The only way to end this madness is to say no and vote these clowns out of office. All it would take is for a significant number of businesses to say no, defy the ban and have Bloomberg try to legally enforce it. Go back to the ultimate nanny state act, Prohibition. How many normally law abiding citizens defied Prohibition and brewed their own hooch, went to speakeasies, bought bootlegged liquor or even worked as rum runners. The federal government simply could not effectively enforce the unpopular edict and it was repealed.

So you didn't mind Bloominidiot's stripping away owner's private property rights when you found it to be beneficial to you? but now you're complaining because it is now something you enjoy..........real nice.

Oh, of course not. That is THE sacred fluid of liberals around the world.
