We are from the government and we are here to help you. You have no idea what’s good for you to eat or drink, and you’ve obviously failed at the “freedom of choice” experiment, so New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (RINO) wants to take the choice away from you.
You’re a toddler, and you don’t have a clue as to what’s OK and not OK. Bloomberg will propose a ban on sugary drinks served in containers containing more than 16 oz of the bad stuff.
Every single menu in New York City could soon be getting a major overhaul if Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way.
The man behind calorie counts is set to announce a new public health initiative to battle obesity, taking aim at super-sized sugary drinks.
In other words, it may soon be time to say goodbye to those Big Gulps, those Slurpees or even Venti at Starbucks, CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis reported.
You have been abusing the privilege by purchasing 20 oz bottles of Pepsi at the convenience store, and it will stop.
Let me propose Bloomberg’s tyrannical power grab is the direct result of the government becoming the number one payer of health care services in the country. With Obamacare, this type of tyranny will continue and expand. Quite simply, if anything you do costs the government money, liberal/statists/socialists will demand they have the right to regulate it.
This is a very important point, and remember, strings are always attached to government funding. You give up freedom by accepting government dollars. An example…
Let’s say more kids start getting involved with skateboarding and a government study finds skateboarders are 100 times more likely than non-skateboarders to suffer injuries including broken bones and concussions that cost the government a lot of health care dollars. Since the costs are high and they are paying the bills, the government will feel they have the right to regulate skateboarders with a strong hand since they don’t have the skill set to partake in the sport responsibly. They could demand all kids wear full-body protective gear, only skate in designated areas, and be monitored by a government employee at all times.
Or, they could just ban skateboarding…
Do you see the tyranny? Do you understand the impact? Do you care?
