If only the little people would stop clinging to their freedom, the elites could improve their lives so much . . .
During the push for ObamaCare, MSNBC gave Dr. Nancy Snyderman her own show to promote the cause. The show ended shortly after the passage of the law, but Dr. Nancy's still around, supporting other politicians in their quest for more control over people's lives.
On Morning Joe today, Snyderman celebrated New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, claiming he showed real leadership by imposing a ban on big sodas. Snyderman sniffed off opponents of the law as simply having "bitched about the nanny state."

Defending your freedom against the nanny state = ‘bitching’ in eyes of MSM/political elites like Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Ping to Today show list.
Many people throughout history have “shown leadership”.
Today soda’s, tomorrow the bill of rights.
Watching Morning Joe can cause fat to accumulate in liberal brains and butts.
This is leadership? In which direction are we supposed to be going?
Or are we doomed to wander about some vast wasteland for years before somebody finally says, “Enough!”
Time to consult the moral compass and focus on the goal we really want to head for.
The temporary kind of leadership.
Yesterday the War On Drugs.
Wow. These libs are amazing. Truly.
Ban of “big” sodas reduces economies of scale in purchasing power. Buyers need to buy more quantities of less soda for the same fix.
Political kickback to Coke/Pepsi suppliers and dispensing companies — think McDonalds for doing all that hiring for Hussein?
... Unless of course, one trusts Big Media to report the truth, and then it’s to reduce obesity.
Kind of like how the Great Clinton’s Telecommunications Act of 1996 was to “protect the children”, while it allowed Big Media to coalesce and become the anti-American propaganda machine it is today.
Does this smug looking “w”itch realize that Bloomberg did not outlaw or pass a law preventing people from ordering a “refill” of my (whatever)
If I cannot buy a 16oz drink, I see NO law preventing me from buying 2 8oz drinks. If my school days math is correct 2 drinks at 8oz. is the equivalent of a single 160z. er.
If ordered in an eating place, the server who does NOT bring the second drink has just blown his/her tip.
People patronize the place that fulfills their desires. Else why bother going???
Hitler and Stalin showed extraordinary “leadership”.
Hitler showed leadership, too. We all know where THAT went!
*No, I do not equate nannyism with mass murder.
When you buy in the larger don’t you get more for less money? If so, aren’t they hurting the poor?
And what about the tax? Here in Ohio you pay a tax on take out. Does New York have a tax on take out. If so, is it more for two smaller drinks then it would be for one big one?
I'd love to know what movie theaters plan to do.
That is most certainly NOT leadership.
Leading a free people involves presentation of better ideas, arranging an array of disparate data and presenting them as a single cogent argument.
Leading a free people involves “...hey, I haven’t had a jumbo soda in weeks and I feel great. Give it a try and see how it works for you...”
Leading a free people has been confused with having authority over a free people (oxymoron apology)....at least by the author of this article.
The purpose of the exercise, the “American Experiment,” looks for all intents and purposes to be the protection of individual volition, and the free exercise thereof. Anything else comes under the heading of societal authority and must be agreed to by all parties involved, or it is a no-go.
Bloomie acts like a powermad little dweeb (.02, your mileage may vary), who has succeeded in his not so little frog-pond (why is it so much of this drek comes from the cities?).
Leadership of a free people is not about coercion...
More generally, if having the government ‘ban’ things is the best way to deal with societal problems, why not just go the whole way?
We could have government”
1. Issue mandatory chastity belts for teenagers to prevent teenage pregnancy.
2. Send troops into gang-invested inner city areas to rid them of this problem.
3. Ban all movies, literature, and music (yes, including hip-hop) that feature violent themes.
4. Make the driving age universally 18 years to avoid car accidents involving young drivers.
5.Make it mandatory that all <18 years old have to wear government defined uniforms, to cut down on crime associated with the theft of fashionable clothing items, such as high-end footwear (e.g. Nike's).
6. Ban any high school or state college sports in which participants ‘could get hurt’.
No, I'm not advocating any of this...
Hitler and Stalin had strong leadership skills too.
I’m not sure ‘leadership’ is the sole criteria we should use to evaluate elected officials.
