This from Godfather Politics will likely outrage you. It outraged me. This guy is a petty tyrant. According to Wikipedia he is the 10th richest man in the United States. He owns 88 percent of Bloomberg LP. You no doubt watch Bloomberg Television. That’s the guy. He’s also the Mayor of New York City. In addition, he’s a tyrant and Godfather Politics proves it:
For example, in March of 2011, Bloomberg launched his food campaign on the food and meals being donated to the homeless. Restaurants and stores would donate good food to groups that would use it to feed the homeless. But not so fast says the food lord, it has to be inspected to make sure the serving sizes are not too big, does not have too much salt, fat or calories and that it does have a certain amount of fiber. If the food does not meet Herr Bloomberg’s manifesto, it is tossed and the homeless will go hungry.
You remember how he issued new mandates about the sizes of sodas?
Next, the supreme food dictator began attacking sugary drinks and restricting what sizes can be sold by businesses. He has attacked foods and drinks with high sugar, salt or trans fats.
He says pizza delivery guys cannot deliver a pizza with 2-liter size sodas:
In his latest venture in obsessive compulsive dictatorship that borders on the edge of paranoia schizophrenia, he has issued yet another edict that violates the rights and freedoms of the citizens and businesses of New York City. Pizza deliveries will no longer be allowed to deliver a 2 liter bottle of Coke or any other soda with their pizzas.
And now he wants to control kids’ birthday parties:
Worse yet, places like Chuck E. Cheese’s will no longer be able to serve soda in a pitcher for events like kids’ birthday parties. The parents will be forced to buy individual cups of soda for each person instead of buying by the pitcher.
Giacomo, writing for Godfather Politics, gets it right about Bloomberg:
Bloomberg believes that his immense wealth gives him the power and authority to infringe on the rights of people to make their own decisions or decisions involving their own children. He also believes that he has the right to dictate to businesses what they can and can’t do, based on his own warped sense of personal values…
Bloomberg is an extreme control freak in a very dangerous position. In some ways, his dictatorial edicts make him worse that Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, Idi Amin and Pol Pot. In his effort to save lives from obesity, guns and addiction to pain meds, he is killing the rights and freedoms of millions of people and businesses.
That’s what tyrants do. Bloomberg is just the most obvious reminder.
