Good is right. Fuck these libtard nanny state pricks like Bloomberg.
I dont even live in NYC and I cant wait till Mrs Bloomberg is out. Id vote for Ed Koch's reanimated corpse at this point.
Good. Although I have no stake in this...Fuck that Pygmy Asshat.
I haven't had a sugary drink in fucking forever (it was the first thing to go when I started losing weight in 2009), but I was still beyond furious at this whole ordeal.
Didn't realize drinking soda was constitutional protected.
That's not the way it works. The default position in this country is that you're allowed to do something. You can't just say that you aren't allowed to do something without a very good reason.
I understand that, just trying to tie in the un-SAFE act and how it stands as 'law'. When it clearly infringes upon the 2nd Amendment and has not been shit canned before it goes into affect.
I stopped drinking soda and diet soda a year ago. This law was going to have little to no effect on me, but the idea that this law was even considered is just the most ridiculous thing I ever saw.
Couple that with the fact that Bloomberg only passed it through the Board of Health (all of which he appointed) rather than the City Council is doubly baffling.
And now state judges are involved. Your tax dollars, hard at work.
I annoys me that the judge only mentioned how inconsistent the regulations were and not how the city had no authority to impose such regulations. The New York Supreme Court obviously doesn't care about government interference in business or private life in and off itself. If they did, they would've struck down NYC's smoking bans and gun control laws years ago.
I just had my farewell 2 slices and 20oz soda, and I come home to this glorious news. City hall will be appealing the ruling, hopefully it'll stand.
Isn't it a free expression issue?
Probably. Or whatever they use for the abortion thing.
I thought he kinda did:
As long as they leave beer alone I could give a fuck what they do with soda.
Ole' quarter-pint will be on Letterman tonight. Could be interesting. Dave is always ragging on Mayor Mommy's height...or lack thereof.
I didn't see that quote (because I didn't follow the link). My bad.
I hope he loses any appeals. He's a cunt.
I also hope the next mayor undoes some of the damage
he's done to midtown traffic with his horseshit.
Fuck you idiots for electing and reelecting and REELECTING this moron.
When I posted the article it was still short. I copy-pasted all they had. I guess they added more info as it came in.
Government officials should have to foot the bill for laws, ordinances and bylaws that are ruled to be unconstitutional and/or violates existing law that wastes government resources and taxpayer money. They should be ordered to pay the same way citizens have to do for false alarms that erroneously sends out the fire department.
The price tag of Bloomcunt fighting this in court is in the double digit millions.
The judge will back right off when Bloomberg explains that he really really wants the ban.
And I'll bet he ain't using his money to do it.
Hopefully Anthony Weiner can get in the race and get beyond the boner pics. He was totally anti-Bloomberg and even told him to his face that he'd rip out the bike lanes (which I think are more of a pressing issue and danger than the stupid pedestrian malls, which they should get rid of too).
Quinn isn't the answer. Hell, she was instrumental in getting Bloomberg his third term.
It's gotta be Weiner.
