Mike Bloomberg Wants To Ban Styrofoam

Tyler Durden's picture




 

If 2012 was the year Mayor Mike crushed the (apparently second) greatest evil in society: super-size sugary drinks, in 2013 he has found a new target in his neverending nanny-state vendetta: the pure, concentrated evil that is styrofoam.

From Reuters:

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will propose a ban on Styrofoam, the substance commonly used for take-out food containers that is almost impossible to recycle.

 

The mayor who has already targeted fat, sugar and salt in the city will turn to extruded polystyrene foam, saying it clogs up landfills, does not biodegrade and might harm human health.

 

Styrofoam, he says, should go the way of lead-based paint, which the city banned from residential use in 1960. An estimated 20,000 tons of Styrofoam enter the city's waste stream each year, and it can add an estimated $20 per ton to the cost of recycling because it needs to be removed from the recycling stream, the city said.

 

"After all, we can live without it. We may live longer without it. And the doggie bag will survive just fine," the text of Bloomberg's speech says.

 

Dow Chemical Co, which makes Styrofoam, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Similar bans have been adopted in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland, Oregon.

 

The plan was likely to meet opposition from small businesses, since alternatives to Styrofoam tend to cost between two and five times as much.

 

"As this proposal moves forward, we hope that the concerns of the small businesses it affects - like cost increases - will factor in at least as heavily as environmental concerns," said Andrew Moesel, a spokesman for the New York Restaurant Association.

Since it is pretty meaningless to comment on this latest stupidity (as there will be plenty of other opportunities to do so in Mike's 4th, 5th and 6th terms as mayor), here is the Mayor himself presenting this brilliant idea to the masses.

I always thought he was gay, like the former mayor of McFraudStreet, Ed "I Like Young Asscracks & I Can't Deny" Cock.

(Not that there's anything wrong with that, although being a gay criminal is just as bad as being a straight one.)

Our country is not “becoming” but has BECOME, vulgar, lewd, immoral, corrupt, evil and every possible BAD thing you can think of. And this is no doubt why GOD is NOT “Blessing America” and even sending us into to the hands of our enemies just like he did to the Israelites’ more than once.

However, history had proven that you cannot regulate morality. But what makes this politicians idea even worse is the fact that he works in a totally CRIMINALLY CORRUPT system. If morality is really his concern then the FIRST place he should be focusing on is his own WORK PLACE.

They need to LEAD by EXAMPLE. The moral state of a country is a direct reflection of it’s leadership.  In this case, Criminal Leadership.

Bloomberg should clean the mold from inside the subway stations if he's so concerned about public health.  It's disgusting and when trains move in or out of the stations, mold surely blows into straphangers' faces.

who gives a shit?  they banned asbestos, they banned lead paint, they banned huge sugary drinks, now it's styrofoam.  Good for him.  No asbestos means les cancer, as does lead paint.   No 64 ounce sugary drinks means less diabetes and fat fuckers clogging up the cities dwindling resources.  Less styrofoam will mean less landfills, less toxic chemicals in our systems, and what the difference in cost? a few cents?  Most restaurants have already switched to cardboard here.  it's only nastiest chinese food spots that still use it and a couple diners.

The ZH redneck faction obviously has a huge problem with him, but Bloomberg's been a good mayor, that's why he's in his 3rd term.  Giuliani was a lowlife crook.  If you guys ever leave the farm and decide to live in a city with a couple hundred million people, you have to make concessions.  This is not a big deal, just idiot fodder for page views.  Get real.

I frankly don't remember any sort of comment like that... But if you want to go find it & pull it up, I'd be happy to elaborate or provide context [if I said anything like that at all]...

~~~

I say that with 100% confidence, because I have made literally DOZENS of comments on ZH that state in no uncertain terms that anything related to genocide or ethnic cleansing IS NOT the answer to the problems & IS NOT somthin that I support...

This is why I take exception to any comments that immediately try to move the needle of 'critical' comments I make [towards the greedy, immoral, & irresponsible, behavior of many jews in important positions] from a basic uncovering of FACT to some kind of CRAZED genocidal lunacy... [which is ~ frankly a tactic that jews have taken to an 'art form' for as long as I remember being alive, but which I didn't really begin to take notice of until the past decade or so]...

You know ~ kito... It is really the responsibility of THE READER to understand what's going on here... On the surface, it may appear that all francis_sawyer ever does is blame EVERYTHING on DOZE EVIL JOOS... But in reality ~ in every 'con job', it requires two parties... There are the 'grifters' & there are the 'johns'... If a 'john' would not allow himself to be conned, then the con will be unsuccessful [no matter how elaborate or well played]... If the 'john' is too stupid so as to allow himself to be conned, then it's partly his FAULT as well...

That's the distinction that I try to make every day...

Not ALL grifters are jews [but there are an extraordinarily large number of jews who have the 'grifter' gene in their blood ~ especially in banking, politics, & mass media ~ which are nodes that make LARGER swindles possible]... The 'grift' doesn't work on me... [& I hope if I can be vocal about it, I can help others to avoid to be unwitting 'johns']...

Yeah I bet you read Gulag Archipelago and said "Solzhenitsyn's just a little bitch, he's just mad cause he couldn't "make it" in socialist Russia". Your economic ignorance is staggering and more to the point who in the fuck would want to "make it" in that reeking pollution-filled authoritarian socialist utopian cesspool you call home?

Jealous of the people who did? Really? Is that you with the 5th Ave pent-house getting chauffered to your corner office job at Goldman Sachs? Didn't fuckin' think so. You and your fellow urban peasants haven't "made" jack or shit of yourselves, unless we take "slaves of the East Coast liberal establishment under the leadership of Der Fuhrer Herr Bloomberg" as something to which we should all aspire? And here's some history for you, when my great grandparents "made it" in NYC after immigrating from Europe, guess what they promptly did? THEY GOT THE FUCK OUT.

"we could just be honest and admit it's not Bloomberg you all hate, it's NYC"

I see you're not very good at logic either. It is entirely possible to hate 2 things simultaneously. Like you for example; you obviously hate places that aren't remiscent of prisons in the socialist-realist/neo-classical Imperial architectural styles, whose air doesn't cause one to gag and choke, and which isn't filled with hyperegotistical social-acrobat automatons.

What can I say, some organisms prefer to live in animal excreta, others choose American cities like NY.

Bloomberg's in his 3rd term becuase he spends $250-$500k for lawyers to challenge every signature that puts a candidate on a ballot.  I know one guy who said if he knew Mickey Blue Eyes was willing to spend $250,000 in legal fees to get him off the ballot, he could have just signed the check to him instead.   

He's in his 3rd term becuase he has completely bullied the NYS GOP into total submission.  He probably has the Dems on a short lease too.

He's a tyrant.  

You are a dick.

He's on his third term because his competition was weak.   The GOP is a creationist joke, and people in NYC actually learned things in school, so they don't vote for them.   Maybe I am a dick, but what's that got to do with anything?

Yeah, they learned how to be good little liberal slaves who don't even acknowledge the possibility of anything outside of the Mass Line, who are grateful and proud of the garbage dump they inhabit. Your schools are a fucking joke, your teachers are an abomination, and your people are kowtowing self-loathing trash. But that is the price you pay for "building socialism", right?

Bloomberg barely won a third term by (buying it) spending $90m of his own money. He got the chance to run by blatantly overturning term limits, which voter's had pushed, and which HE had originally supported (hypocrite). That alone earns him a noose.

Last I checked, NYC proper was 8M and with the surrounding collar counties it goes up to 20M. Wait, a majority of NYC's metro area lives out of the city. I wonder why that is... 

Look, I love NYC. I grew up a suburb kid and worked in it. And I understand why NYC re-elected Mike Bloomberg. The local Democrat party has about 80% of the vote and they've developed into a bunch of brain-dead incompetents who can't be trusted with running the city. The relatively few Republicans that exist in NYC are in a permanent defensive crouch and tend to have a major case of Stockholm syndrome. So, enter Mike Bloomberg as mayor for as long as he wants to be because a city of millions has created such a dysfunctional political climate that its bench depth is just embarrassingly thin. 

So Bloomberg's the man until he gets bored of the job and then you fall back into the hands of the looters who brought NYC the collapse of the West Side Highway. Nice plan B you got there.

In our post-9/11 world, government officials have effectively used terror and fear to subdue any public resistance to legislation like the Patriot Act, which embodies the heavy-handed empowering of government intrusion into our lives. Our police officers have become armed militias, instead of the civilian peacekeepers they were intended to be. Now, even average citizens—those that should have nothing to fear or worry about—are becoming unwitting targets of a government seemingly at war with its own people. Understandably, fear and paranoia rule the day…Now with the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court of Nevada, we have reached yet another milepost on our journey to a police state. A majority of the high court agreed that refusing to answer when a policeman asks “What’s your name?” can rightfully be considered a crime under Nevada’s “stop and identify” statute. Nineteen other states already have similar laws on their books. No longer will Americans, even those not suspected of or charged with any crime, have the right to remain silent when stopped and questioned by a police officer.

I was thinking.  This whole Dorner situtation is nothing more than a mass PsyOp being conducted on masses to condition them to accept future gun confication.  They're programming the public to accept the judge, jury and executioner role by the Fascist Police just like they did in Germany. They're also choseing former military veterans as patsy's in their False Flag's to continue the MIAC and False Narrative's of verterans being "domestic terrorists." Huge Relentless Mind Fuck going on right now on a daily basis with the barrage from media to reinforce the PsyOp. 
 
This is just a small part of what we are seeing that will eventually become nation wide. Think about this, once they start coming for our guns to ‘protect’ themselves, the citizens and the ones who have guns refuse, then they will become ‘enemies’ of the state. Then, the police may have the right to take force to take the guns and this may mean a gun fight may ensue fittitng their PsyOp and False Narrative of gun owners as "Domestic Terrorists.  Well, just a thought.
