“NYCers, why do you put up with this a**hole???”

I can only conclude that along with the media, a significant number of NY’er agree with Bloomie.

It must be a festering liberal swamp.

“We're not banning anything. It's called portion control,”

Which is none of your business. Have some kids of your own and tell them how much to drink. Leave the rest of us alone.

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 what’s in their best interest. “We're not banning anything. It's called portion control,” That's not what the Judge just said...Bwahahahaha ESAD You petty tyrant.

It’s called people control and Bloomer is an a##hole!! Unbelievable how they plan “to appeal” the court. They “care” so much about people’s health that they’ll fight this decision. Un frikken real! The people that keep voting this doucebag in are in a stupid class all to themselves.

It’s called self control, and why should the citizens exhibit any, when your wonderful government has none?

Is he still banning private food donations to homeless shelters because you might give the homeless a high fat or high salt food? (Two things, btw, that a person exposed to the elements might need to survive better).

What's wrong with using English? Oh, that's right. The "people" may not take your advice.

What a lying jerk. Portion control is a term used by restaurants. It is a method used to control costs, not to tell their customers what’s good for them. They use exact portions, especially for the expensive ingredients, and are more generous with the inexpensive ones.

Leave it to a politician to twist the meaning out of all recognition!

New Yorkers had portion control in the amount of time a mayor was to serve. Bloomy thought otherwise and made the changes necessary to become mayor again. He is a petty tyrant.

“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.

“How much portion control should someone exercise when they’re 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.
