Mayor Bloomberg Goes Crazy
Last Resistance ^ | February 25, 2013 | Frank Camp

Posted on 02/26/2013 7:05:57 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Hunger is a force to be reckoned with; it is a motion that cannot be stopped unless it is quenched. But once hunger is sated, it comes again, often more urgently than before. This applies to hunger, in the typical sense, but also the hunger for life, money, faith and power. Once a taste is in your mouth, more is needed to fulfill you the following round. Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, has such a hunger. He has a complex need for power that doesn’t ever seem to be sated. This power hunger has reared it’s ugly head once again.

First, Bloomberg banned large sodas in many establishments; now he is taking his ban farther. In addition to that, he has designs to go after styrofoam and pain-killers. In accordance with his newly designated rules, restaurants cannot serve sodas in pitchers larger than 16 ounces; and New Yorkers will no longer be able to get a 2 liter soda with the purchase of a delivery pizza.

Now, Bloomberg is pouring millions of dollars into a political battle in Chicago. According to Town Hall:

“Michael Bloomberg, is flexing the muscle of his gun control superPAC by spending, as of late Friday, $2.2 million on the race. For those keeping score, that’s four times what the top five candidates’ campaigns have spent — combined. Most of that money has gone to attack former [Pro Second Amendment] Rep. Debbie Halvorson.”

Michael Bloomberg is running on a power trip. But how is he using his newly discovered power? Let’s break down the absurdity of Bloomberg’s world:

1. Banning large sodas has absolutely no effect on the consumption of soda on the whole. Those who want a large soda–but cannot get one–will get two mediums.

2. Banning large sodas is like a comically less effective prohibition. If Bloomberg wasn’t on a power trip; and was actually–though stupidly–concerned about New Yorkers’ health, he would try to ban all sodas.

3. Pouring millions of dollars into a fight against a Pro-Second Amendment candidate…in another state, seems excessive.

Do any of Bloomberg’s tactics have any chance of success? Does he actually believe that what he is doing is a smart move? Unless he is the stupidest man on earth, I would wager to say that he doesn’t see success in his future. So, why do it? Why waste time on projects that are destined for abject failure? Because Michael Bloomberg is a megalomaniac. He craves the power to control; and with each step, he needs more to satisfy his grumbling stomach.

Robert Caro said: “What I believe is always true about power is that power always reveals.” Power has revealed Michael Bloomberg to be nothing more than a fraud; and possibly just not very bright.

Its all for the little ones,

Even if banning guns keeps them from getting shot what good will it do if they drink lots of soda and get fat?
They will get diabetes and die in another 50 years anyway.

Bloomy is the big daddy! Its for the kids.

Bloomberg has been off his rocker for a number of years.

my pre-written response to all things Bloomberg:

Bloomers is a Crony-capitalist, nebbish, poor little rich boy, self hating jew, tiny buttwipe of a man...the only reason he is probably not a fag (the jury is still out) is that he has the greatest aphrodisiac of all time, billions of dollars....he decries the 2nd amendment, but whines about how the enemy’s first amendment rights to worship are being usurped....even though Islam is NOT a religion but a murder cult.....and dont get me started on salt, transfats, cigarettes and sugar

Bloomberg and New Yorkers deserve each other and that’s exactly what they’ve got.

A man that bases uses power to control sugar and salt has to be non-relevant. Thing about that for a moment. Sugar and salt. It would be one thing if he was cornering the market on the sale of sugar or salt, but that is not the case. Those are commodities that are freely traded and are out of reach for Bloomberg. He is trying to control two of the four primary tastes that are on the tongue. It will not be long before even the stupid $hits of NYC wake up to this.

I fully endorse the people of NYC to rise up and take back their city by force. Unfortunately, I fear that most people in NYC are so liberal and have been conditioned over time to think Bloomberg is doing the right thing.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Once the tyrant gets what he wants the first time it begins a non-ending cycle...

With all the cataclysmic problems facing our country, Bloomboob focuses on bottled soda? What a profoundly small man.

Makes me wonder if the Mayor of Fargo, ND has been a beneficiary of the PAC’s generosity. What is the name of the Bloomberg anti-gun PAC? (I can hear the ads now: “Noo Yawk City???”)
