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.

“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.”

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.

Arbeit macht frei.

"Portion control" is an Orwellian use of the language as creative as "work will set you free"

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.

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

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.

Hildy said: "First time Starbucks has actually done something I approved of!"

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?

Hello, even if you buy into Bloomie’s having people’s best interest at heart -

“explain to people” is not the same as ‘impose on people’.

Ah, Bloomie dear, that’s one hell of a ‘portion’ of money you got there all to yourself. Any idea, sir, how many have starved to death while you hold that great big gob of cash in reserve?

Five Guys has a restaurant in Times Square. They should market a “Bloomberg Burger.” I’m thinking a quadrupedal bacon cheese burger would work.

Naw, it would be more like two thin slices of whole wheat or pumpernick, sandwiching the smell of cooked beef accompanied by a picture of fries on the side. Bloomberg is a coomie at heart and believes he is right and a savior for controlling the sheeple.

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

Key word being control. Any politician who believes it is the government's prerogative to "control portions" of what citizens consume lacks a fundamenatl understanding of the concepts of citizenship and liberty. Any voter who accepts and supports such a politician DESERVES to live as a slave.

Portion control? LOL! It’s almost impossible to control certain human impulses, Bloomy.

Like, for instance, how I’m having trouble controlling my index finger “impulse” every time I hear you bleat.

A subliminal slip - this is precisely how the ‘ruling class’ views American citizens;

We are all considered potential welfare wannabes. This is totally reprehensible and diminishes our standing as the Gubmint’s employer(s).

Bloomberg WORKS FOR US!!!! He is NOT OUR MASTER, our JAILER, or our FATHER!!!!

Parents can use portion control with their children.

Mr. Bloomberg, you are not my parent and I am not your child.

“How much portion control should someone exercise when they’re sticking a 1 liter bottle of soft drink up your a$$??!!?”

Oh, that’s allowed in New York. You aren’t allowed to DRINK it. But anything goes in the bathhouses.

Very reflective of a single mom/no dad/easy divorce culture.

We try to replace our fathers.

What’s with you Noooo Yawkaws?
Most of you sat on your asses and ate popcorn watching OWS.
You bitch when the deli is out of your favorite snack.
They turned the World Trade site into a full employment, corporate welfare disgrace and you’ve done nothing.

I find that most NYers enjoy being miserable. Must be a conditioned response from being crammed into a small sapce with millions of other miserable people.

the man is like all the left , thye want big Govt but when it comes to issues like them wanting to become dope smokers then they don;t want Govt.

So in this case it;s alright to smoke an illegal substance but not alright to drink what is legal and the left think that is alright.

you can;t even make this up anymore and they wonder why many think they;re stupid and selfish

agree, I got the wife out of MA because of we were fed up of paying taxes to a radical left wing agenda and I can;t understand as to why anyone puts up with living there anymore.

The north east has gone much like most of the west coast, sadly these buffoons move on down south to here or the mountain states and mess up more states.
Look at CO, want drugs legal so they get high but want to ban a 2nd amendment right

Maybe I am behind the times.... Does Sister Bloomberg have a family, in the conventional sense?

What institution houses little Bloomie's off-spring?

.

Bloomie is a raving nut-job, IMHO.
