My grandmother used to say “Those people would grunt at a gnat and swallow a camel.” That’s exactly what comes to my mind when I think about the attempted actions of Fuehrer of New York, Michael Bloomkopf (alternately known as Michael Bloomberg).
Bloomberg and his handpicked regime have set out to do what God has done or hasn’t chosen to do. He’s going to end obesity in New York City. He is preparing an edict that would criminalize drinks over 16 ounces that contain sugar, albeit he will, at least for the time being, allow refills, (no mention of how many). He and his behavioral Nazi’s are also considering criminalizing milkshakes and popcorn, all in a foolish and vain attempt to control the appearance of those they find offensive to their eyes. Only they won’t tell you that; they’ll say it’s to control health costs. The sensus plenior is that if these proposals are able to be passed, it will allow the government to control your family, even to the point of seizing your children. But don’t expect them to admit to that.
If Bloomberg and those like him were really interested in making a better, more healthy society–he would start in Washington with the federal government and work outward in concentric circles. He would start with the card-carrying socialists in congress who are subverting the Constitution. America has had enough of them trying to turn us into a cookie-cutter society.
If Bloomy were really concerned about the quality of life of We The People, he would center his attention on a vapid and feckless Republican Party that more closely resembles a busload of Keystone Cops, with John Boehner driving and Eric Cantor as the navigator.
And if he were really concerned about the quality of life in America, he would next go to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and tell the Obamas they’re detrimental to the Constitution of the United States and it was his intention to rid America of their threat. He would tell them that America is the land of the free and the home of those brave enough to undertake their removal in every legal manner possible. He would tell Obama that Americans don’t take well to Marxist-Leninists trying to turn our nation into a Communist cesspool. He would tell Obama that his wife is an affront to the position she holds and that it is time for her to start behaving with dignity and propriety commensurate with the position she holds and the dignity that each FLOTUS before exhibited.
We don’t need to focus on obesity just because they find it offensive. But while I’m on that subject, why doesn’t he tell some of the tubbies in Congress to lose a few pounds?
If Bloomberg really wants to make New York City a healthier place, then I submit he should start by cleaning up Washington. Or am I missing something?
