We already know New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a Totalitarian Bag of Ass™. In 2009, New York adopted legal restrictions on trans fats in restaurants, forced salt reductions and banned smoking in privately-owned establishments – something I, even as a non-smoker, find morally offensive and antithetical to the very idea of freedom.
Of course the Totalitarian Bag of Ass™ never cared much about freedom. The Second Amendment is just another speed bump to overcome on his way to a statist utopia, where everyday, law-abiding citizens are disarmed and forced to rely upon the state for their safety and their very lives.
That’s why he had no problem advocating further government intrusion into your lives at the latest United Nations General Assembly summit on communicable diseases by vocally advocating nanny state mandates for health solutions. If you’re not sure what that means, imagine turning on your TV and seeing ads condemning all those yummy snacks you love to eat. Imagine the nanny state imposing extra taxes on your guilty pleasures (keep away from my Cheetos, assholes!). Imagine government requirements making pizza “healthy,” so that your greasy pepperoni and extra cheese thick, greasy pan crust turns into a dry piece of cardboard piled with tofu squares and low-fat, low-flavor cheese. Imagine this.
Then consider if you want the likes of Bloomberg or another petty tyrant in a three-piece suit telling you what you should eat… for your own good, of course.
“There are powers only governments can exercise, policies only governments can mandate and enforce and results only governments can achieve. To halt the worldwide epidemic of non-communicable diseases, governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option. That is ultimately government’s highest duty.”
And here I thought the government’s highest duty was to protect the populace from violence by enforcing laws to protect individual rights.
When will the American public get sick of this garbage and start asserting its rights by voting these oppressive overlords out?
How does the social contract in any form translate to Bloomberg and his ilk sticking their extremities in your fridge or pantry?
Enough is enough!
