    Nanny Bloomberg’s at it again; exasperated environmentalists try another approach to save spotted owls; and Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood moonlights as a traffic cop all in this week’s edition of Nanny State overreach. Highway to Hell: Last week we brought you news of Nanny State regulators at NHTSA battling what they now call “the distracted driving epidemic.” Perhaps they should add Transportation Secretary LaHood to their expanding list of potential distractions. In a fit of self-righteousness LaHood claimedduring a speech this week that he hasn’t used a cellphone while driving in over three years. LaHood also stated that he...

    Across the country the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has been spending millions of ‘Stimulus’ dollars running campaigns and ads attacking tobacco and sugar-sweetened beverages like soda. Health police have also waged overt war on alcoholic beverages. After taxing beverages to no end Big Brother has turned more frequently to regulating away individual choice. Nowhere is the Nanny State more alive and well than in the Big Apple. Under the guise of public health, Mayor Bloomberg is planning a draconian assault on alcoholic beverages, plotting to close a number of drinking establishments and restrict alcohol advertising throughout the city. Initial...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's decision to stay out of the Republican presidential race means that the American people will be spared months of discussion about his ample waistline and the bad example it sets. Nonetheless, with first lady Michelle Obama urging everyone to get moving, obesity remains a political hot potato, or maybe a tater tot. Below, a helping of skepticism about the causes of Americans' poor eating habits - and the efficacy of political fixes. 5 myths of healthy eating...

    ...It's easy to see why single cigarette purchases are popular and profitable in Manhattan. Lonnie Warner, the black market salesman mentioned above, buys cartons of cigarette shipped to New York City (cigarette tax: $5.85 per pack) from Virginia (cigarette tax: 30 cents per pack) illegally and sells them for a profit a couple cigarettes at a time. It's not legal, but it's lucrative. The NYT story reads like an episode of The Wire, with Warner shuffling from block to block in search of action, retreating to Harlem to replenish his stash via a network of suppliers. The constant struggle for...

    George Washington University is actually bringing a one-time Republican officeholder to its’ Foggy Bottom campus, of course, he is no longer a member of the GOP. “New York City Mayor and well-known philanthropist Michael Bloomberg will serve as the keynote speaker for the University-wide Commencement in May, where he will receive an honorary Doctor of Public Service, University President Steven Knapp announced Friday,” Shaeera Tariq reported in The GW Hatchet. “Knapp made the announcement on Bloomberg’s turf in Manhattan, N.Y., at the second annual GW Global Forum, which brings together global leaders and GW alumni to discuss worldwide economic issues.”...

    It seems that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg invokes certain freedoms only when they serve his 2012 agenda -- and freedom of speech is not high on his list. Doing away with term limits wasn't enough (which is why we are still suffering under his no-salt, no-trans-fat regime). He is now widening his ayatollah-like power-grab to imposing blasphemy laws (Islamic sharia laws) on the secular marketplace. Bloomberg's frenzied Ground Zero mosque push may have inspired al-Azhar clerics to oppose the Ground Zero Mosque, calling it a "a zionist plot." Last month, I signed a contract with CBS Outdoor to run...

    NEW York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he cannot win the US presidency and won't run, the strongest statement to date about his intentions for the 2008 presidential race. Mr Bloomberg previously had said he had no plans to run, which failed to quiet speculation that he was planning an independent bid for the White House. In an interview with Dan Rather of HDNet television to be aired today, Mr Bloomberg was asked if he was running and if he was going to run for president. He answered "no" to both questions. He refused to categorically rule out any future run,...

    Now is the time for Congress and America to sock it to New York's Bloomberg, says gun law expert Washington, DC 20005 January 4 2006 "It's about time Congress and America's scores of millions of law-abiding firearm owners combined to really sock it to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other local gun-hating officials around the country," gun law expert John Michael Snyder said here today. "Fortunately," he added, "an absolutely appropriate legislative vehicle for doing just this already has been proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives." Snyder said Bloomberg's inaugural pledge on New Year's Day to bring...

    A lot of the 1970's seems pretty remote these days. The Led Zeppelin records gather dust. High- mileage economy cars and low thermostats to conserve energy have given way to cheap gasoline and sport utility vehicles. Afros and quot;Have a Nice Dayquot; buttons are the stuff of camp and kitsch. But recycling lives on. From its early roots after the first Earth Day in 1970, when parking lot recycling centers began popping up, reuse became the middle-American expression of environmental awareness. Recycling, its supporters believed, was a tiny lever that could work its way into the average American household #151;...
