NYC Mayor Bloomberg: 'Government’s Highest Duty' Is to Push 'Healthy' Foods
CNS News ^ | 9/28/11 | Eric Scheiner

Posted on 09/28/2011 12:36:42 PM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) - During a United Nations General Assembly summit on non-communicable diseases -- a discussion that included diet and eating habits -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said “governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option.

Speaking on the government's role in diet and health last week, Bloomberg told the UN General Assembly, “There are powers only governments can exercise, policies only governments can mandate and enforce and results only governments can achieve. To halt the worldwide epidemic of non-communicable diseases, governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option. That is ultimately government’s highest duty.”

I agree. He’s an idiot. But my guess has been that he has a financial wizard on his payroll that makes his millions for him.

I can’t get too excited about Michael Bloomberg’s genuflecting to Big Brother government, always with the best intentions, of course. He may have run for his third mayoral term as a ‘Republican’ but he is really just another billionaire (18 billion, to be exact) ‘limousine liberal’ posing as a benefactor that wants to help the unenlightened masses with his great wisdom and deep concern - while steadily robbing them of their freedom. I’ll pass, Bloomie.

Mayor Michael "Fearless Fosdick" Bloomberg uses the full police powers of the state to keep a potential victim from eating a can of beans with too much salt and trans fats.

Baloney. The only branch of government that isn't a total failure is the military, and that's only because of help from the private sector.

No he didn't. He left the Republican Party in 2007 and ran for his third term two years later.

The GOP is no longer affiliated with Nanny McBloomberg.

The desire to tell other people what to eat stems from an infantile desire to be the mother instead of the child. Ditto for people who love to tell other people where to sit.

Listen BoobBerg, GooberBerg or whatever your name is:
Cram it clownie.

I just ate an enchilada with a creme chipotle sauce and it was delicious.

Nonyuh damn business what I eat or how much.

BTW, I did wash it down with a Diet Soda but, that because I like diet sodas. Can’t stand regular sodas.

Oh, and I didn’t eat the flour tortillas because I don’t like the taste of white flour anything.

Does that make your fascistic heart warmer?

Yuh craven Kommie.

Behold, the authentic voice of Fascism:

Governments don't exist to defend the borders, or to protect citizens from force or fraud; they exist to tell you what to eat.

This is what happens when people abdicate their personal responsibility to the tender mercies of petty tyrants because they are too bored or lazy to protect them.

Bloomberg made his money as a “timer” on the stock market. Then he created the Bloomberg financial TV property. The purpose of the Bloomberg report is to aid and abet other timers.

These parasites do not add value to anything they do. They simply enrich themselves because they have a fast index (”ENTER”)finger.

Bloomberg the Arrogant now thinks it’s his duty to tell people what they should eat. He apparently sees that as more important than keeping New Yorkers and America safe from Islamoterrorism. If we’re nice to them and pretend they don’t really do bad things, radical Muslims will magically cease they’re religion-based assault on infidels.

Sheesh. This guy will be directly responsible for the injury or death of innocent Americans at the hands of the fanatic ragheads before his Mayoral tenure is over.

Moreover, if he persists in pushing the erection of a Mosque on or near sacred World Trade Center ground, he alone will be responsible for the civil unrest that ensues.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
