As Twitchy reported last night, Mayor Bloomberg went one step further in his attacks on our yummy eats; he will now ban sugary drinks! Nanny state at its most depraved; you will pry our sugary drinks out of our cold, dead, super-sized hands. First you came for our bacon, then you came for our salt. Now this?
Why does Mayor Bloomberg hate fat people?
Twitter is still outraged today.
Give us liberty or give us death! Even give us liberty and death by sugar-induced pleasure. Our stomachs, our choice! That is hard for the Smarter Than You people to understand. The silly “little people” can, and do, make their own choices. They are, you know, human like that. What happened to embracing all lifestyle choices?
And now not one, but two hashtags have sprung up in response. #NannyBloomberg and #Bloombergsnextban.
We had to put down our bucket-sized Slurpees due to giggle fits!
Now this would be awesome.
We don’t need a Nanny State and we aren’t all victims in need of the government to save us, even from ourselves. Think about that a little more, Nanny Bloomberg. You and your constant big government schemes creating dependency, victim-hood and reliance are the problem, not soda. New York is no longer the Big Apple; it’s the Big Brother.
