(CNSNews.com) New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the large soda ban set to go into effect this month at city restaurants, street vendors and movie theaters is how government tells the public whats in their best interest. We're not banning anything. It's called portion control, Bloomberg said Sunday on CBSs "Face the Nation." It's a typical way that companies use to and governments use to explain to people what's in their interest and what isn't.

Hey Bozo Bloomberg - what’s in my interest is none of your business!
It’s in your interest to mind your own business or else you’re going to get booted from office ya dope.
HIS “portion control” was SUPPOSED to be 8 YEARS....but that lttle twerp CHNGED THE RULES!!
Can’t say “It’s a free country” in NY.
Well, I think the American Political Scene has had their “portion” of pint-sized little Napoleons like Bloomberg.
“It must be a festering liberal swamp.”
It is not known as the “Big Sh*ty” for nothing, you know.
New York City is also known as “Neu Yuk”, a reference to its original name and its present condition.
“... For example, the Mayor continued, large portions of Communist-like Government Control are good for you whereas giving you the freedom to decide for yourself what you eat is obviously not in either your or society’s best interest. ...”
“How much portion control should someone exercise when theyre sticking a 1 liter bottle of soft drink up your a$$??!!?”
The answer is:
Depends on whether act occurs in Neu Yuk or in South Beach or Key West.
hahahaha, take that Bloomberg/Hitler!!!!
Bloomberg needs to realized his departure from governance would be in the best interest of the people.
I’m so sick of these Communist Bastards running around this country telling everyone else what to do.
Judicial slapdowns: a typical way that the law uses to explain to elitist clowns what is in their interest and what isn't. Chew it, Bloomie.
20 years from now.
“I’m not killing anyone, its called “Pest Control”
"Portion control" is an Orwellian use of the language as creative as "work will set you free"
Liberalism = fewer choices.
Well actually they said they were not adding sugar (add your own on the side), and staying within standards on the milk. So, they found away around the ban and staying within guidelines.
I think Bloomberg’s making up for a deficiency somewhere else.
I don't live in NYC, but I do live in the NYC media market.
If you ever saw the leftwing lunatics he runs against, you'd forgive them.
The Democrats lining up for the next election include psycotic lesbian union stooge Christine Quinn and openly corrupt John Liu, currently New York City Comptroller and giant vacuum of illegal campaign contributions.
Bloomberg is the absolute worst jackass ever, except for all the other mayoral wannabes.
I thought that the media went after Starbucks due to people openly carrying weapons. I recall that Starbucks response was that they would allow whatever was legal in any particular jurisdiction. Didn't this happen in Washington state?
