Bloomberg's Junk Food Schizophrenia

On the one hand NYC Mayor Bloomberg is the 16 oz. Soda Nazi... with a plan to ban the sale of soda and other sugar laden drinks over 16 oz.

On the other hand ... NYC Mayor Bloomberg and his administration are celebrating National Donut Day! Complete with Photo Ops and Proclamation by the Mayor himself!

To celebrate the historical milestone, Entenmann's will present a donation check for $25,000 to The Salvation Army, unveil the largest box of Entenmann's Donuts ever created along with custom-made donuts 1-foot in diameter, and share a Proclamation Letter from Mayor Bloomberg. Entenmann's will also be providing free donuts and The Salvation Army's Canteen truck will be providing free coffee from 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the southwest corner of Madison Square Park, 23rd Street & Broadway.

Soft drinks, bad... donuts, good.
(That ought to keep the NYC policemen who frequent donut shops happy)

Confused? Well, here is their explanation.... (Lame as it is)

That's the thing about being a micro-managing Nanny State Government.... you'd think they would show at least a measure of consistency, especially where so-called "public health" is concerned ... and it is obvious that there is none.

The Tyrant just picks and chooses what he wants to have his subjects do or not do.

It's just more Leftist Nanny State Hypocrisy at it's worst.

I'm wondering where you live...I'm in the US and it looks a lot different here. Our country allows its largest businesses to offshore jobs to countries that have much lower wage requirements without penalty, while the businesses themselves are making record profits and their pay is many hundreds of times that of the average American worker. Our citizens do not have adequate healthcare, and in my state, Texas, both higher and lower education has been gutted economically, including the University of Texas, a "public ivy". Some of the kids in our area have been seen reserving food to take home to their parents. If you happen to go through a border checkpoint near here, you can bet on being asked a lot of invasive questions, which is apparently just fine with a majority of citizens in this area, who ironically think the government should be small enough to drown in a bathtub. When we had big fires here a couple of years ago and the got state and government help to contain them, it cost several million dollars more than the taxpayers of this country could ever hope to pay back, but many of them were heard saying that God saved their homes. If you ever visit the US, you'll find that things are a lot different from your home country.
