Maybe we should ban congestion and dirty cities and therefore that sewer known as New York City.

You ever see that Nazi-esque thing he does with restaurants, tagging their windows with letters all in the guise of "public health"? You know, like A = OK, B = just ok, C = just passing and D = fail? He's doing that to candy stores now. Small stores that sell newspapers and M&M candy. I saw 3 last week.

I'm 51 years old. Lived in NYC my entire life. Never in my life have I EVER gotten sick from eating a pack of M&Ms. How in the name of God is a pack of M&Ms or newspapers a threat to public health?

This is absolute Nazi tactics, just like the Nazis would tell the public not to do business with a store by writing "Jude" in the windows, so this SOB does as well. Absolutely no reason for it other than to flex his psychotic lust for power.

Look at this one pic I found...C..They fail. Do not do business with them under order of Der Fuhrer!

Liberals think tyranny can't happen in the good ole US of A? Come to NYC.

I find this entire thing astonishing.

I grew up in a generation that played war with toy guns and rifles and “smoked” candy cigarettes until we were old enough for the real ones.

In the wonderful fifties we smoked,drank martinis,drove too fast without seatbelts,and ate whatever we damned well wanted to eat.(And that included soda and potato chips.

We didn’t grow up violent or fat,and most of us lived longer than our life expectancy.

Bloomie is in serious need of psychiatric care——there is a lot more going on here than caring for the health of New Yorkers.

I’m a good bit younger than you, but I grew up the same way........and in NYC - of course long before the Bloominidiot took over. I was gone from there 30 years this past October!

The man isn’t just silly, he’s dimwitted and myopic. What he should have banned with all the strength he could muster was the obscene, health-threatening proposal for a jihadist mosque on ground zero. That he supported!

Yeah and therein lies his hypocrisy. Bloody little Cesar can't be satisfied with his own recovery, he's going to make sure everyone else is too. "I quit and so you have to quit too''. Little jerk.

So, the mayor can tell a private business how to advertise. Woudn’t this fall under the category of free speech?

I can’t understand why the tobacco companies don’t stop selling their product in New York. It would take them about one week to start back tracking.

It’s partly a scheme to make money from the fines. The things that count against restaurants are ridiculous. An ice cube on the kitchen floor. A hair on the kitchen counter. A certain number of points and your rating goes down.

I remember when they used to publish the results of the health inspections in the New York Times. They ruined many an honest business that way, because often it was because the owner refused to bribe the inspectors. Then it all came out.

Like appointing his horse to some city bureaucracy?

I think he loves the negative attention. Locally, the Statist media and his liberal friends love it, so they lavish praise on him.

As far as the national media and populace? He loves it when they hate him. It makes him feel sooooo New York City Superior.

See my comment. It’s becoming obvious these are stunts, MEANT to garner negative attention.

It does seem as if he's using a checklist.

Such displays suggest that smoking is a normal activity,” Bloomberg said. “And they invite young people to experiment with tobacco.”

Yet, these same idiots claim that exposing children to homosexual sexuality in kindergarten will not sexualise children. Up is down, black is white, backwards is forwards.

Aww, cut him a break. He’s just exercising the power that many a FReeper was more than willing to give him...

As a non smoker, I knew that smoking bans will lead to more of our freedoms being taken away... The sad part is that there where many conservatives (a lot here), who supported such ban cause it got rid of a vice they don’t like.

I won't give him or any of those so-called FReepers a break.

Anyone who supports any of these nanny state edicts does not deserve the moniker of "FReeper" as they go against everything conservatives, and this website, stand for.

“who supported such ban cause it got rid of a vice they don’t like.”

To put it more plainly, there was a contingency of FReepers that supported the usurpation of private property rights so that their clothes wouldn’t stink.

“-———gone from there 30 years this past October!”


And my son has been down there for 20 years this summer. They live in Nassau County but he works for The City of New York. They will give it 5 more years to get their daughter out of H.S. and then they are gone.

You are so lucky you escaped when you did.
