Bloomberg To Appeal Halt Of "Arbitrary And Capricious" Decision, Will Fight Valiantly To Curb New York Obesity

Tyler Durden's picture

It took the NY Mayor's office a few brief minutes to respond to Judge Tingling's order, and announce it would promptly appeal the decision. Because apparently nobody thought of the children.

bloomberg would be fine with the 32 oz. drinks so long as it used toxic aspertame and other GMO goodness...

Rumors are circulating that Bloomberg is meeting with Obama adminstration and DEA officials to have sugar declared an illegal and addictive drug...

A 1987 study showed sugar acted as an analgesic drug whose effects could be blocked by a morphine blocker.[2] In her 1998 book, author Kathleen DesMaisons outlined the concept of sugar addiction as a measurable physiological state caused by activation of opioid receptors in the brain and hypothesized that dependence on sugar followed the same track outlined in the DSM IV for other drugs of abuse.[3][page needed]

Fifteen years later, 2002 research at Princeton began showing the neurochemical effects of sugar, noting that sugar might serve as a gateway drug for other drugs.[4]

I say let them eat morphine...

This whole so called 'issue' is bullshit and its more likely for the purpose of drawing attention away from ongoing Wall Street frauds.  Fuck me runnin', how 'bout a coke vs. pepsi debate... sheesh.

No mention of free markets, just a judge's opinion on another politician.

You don’t lose the noise from liberal socialists until you get rid of them.

Ignatius's picture

"liberal socialist"?  kidding, right?

A syphilitic, dog-fucking puke, sure, but socialist?

Well I beleive Bloomberg is an idiot and this was just about the worst example of government overstepping I've ever seen.  

He's beyond socialist and leaning towards tyranical.

The mayor gets the news he's not an emperor.....that's got to be devastating news.

Will be interesting to see the public response to serious talk about restricting calories.

Same as the response to talk about banning auto weapons, I would think.

Cheescake Factory business will increase.  

The Heart Attack Grill in Vegas will have a long line out the door.

Try to restrict calories and the pubic will do the opposite.

Right...

How many people are killed each year by NYPD?

If Mayor Mike wants to protect New Yorkers, perhaps he should learn from the Chinese and throw 1200 pigs into the river.

nmewn's picture

Its up to 3,000 pigs now...lol...and I do believe this eugenicist (Bloomberg) would do it if he had the power.

But back to Shanghai, I understand they're having a helluva time pushing the garbage aside (styrofoam cups, plastic bottles and what not) trying to lasso, net, cane pole and stick with pitchforks to get these bloated porkers to shore. I mean, no sense in showing individual initiative, the Party said to fish out the pigs, fish the pigs we will!!!

Our favorite Chi-Com agent shitizen citizen still cannot be reached for comment on this...but I'm sure he'd say these are consumpzinating American pigs eternally blobbing up that had to die!

NoDebt's picture

OK, so we have one confirmed "sane" person left in New York (the judge).  Who's next to perform a heroic act of simple common sense? 

Anyone?  Anyone?  Bueller?

An interesting insight into the thinking of globalist-marxist scum like Bloomberg.  That's not 5,000 human beings who made lifestyle choices while they were on this Earth.  That's 5,000 human cattle that serve him as either bragging rights or potential embarassment at Bilderberg meetings.

secret_sam's picture

Bloomberg's no Marxist, dude, get an education, you sound like an idiot.

fonestar's picture

Was Jacob Schiff a Marxist?  Or just while opportune?

secret_sam's picture

Don't know enough about him to render any judgment, but it doesn't really look like it.  Most Marxists are not members of the aristocracy which communism was intended to destroy.

But 'round these parts, we don't pay much attention to those kinds of details, eh?  May as well be calling Bloomberg an Islamist for the accuracy. 

"Marxist" is just a synonym for "person I hate" among the mouth-breathing regulars here.

Someone out there sure hates sugar.

Not sure if serious, but if so, that's just bullshit.

ZerOhead's picture

Definitely not serious but given the fucktards sailing the Ship of State one never knows...

War on Obesity = larger police state + more private prisons with the goal of lower future spending on Healthcare. What's not to like?

Hey, if the EPA can make CO2 a pollutant, then everything is on the table...if its for our own good.

Nevermind that sugar, and refined carbs are recommended by the USDA approved food pyramid?

What is the next surreal development? Will NYC sue the USDA?

Last time I checked ~ there is not a jew on the planet that I'm stealing money from [unless you want to account for the gold at the bottom of the lake that I capsized my boat last year in order to keep them from stealing it from me]... But THANKS for your interest...

kito's picture

francis how do you account for the millions of non jews that steal your money everyday?.............or do you just ignore them and focus only on the JOOS.............francis, i like you, but we need to work on this unhealthy obsession of yours..................perhaps i can introduce you to some JOOS who i promise wont steal your money....just go out, have a drink or two or three and discuss how global elitists...some JOOS, some NOT....are ruining the world..........

Oddly, the soda from Mexico, with the real sugar in it, only come in 16 oz bottles

And it makes the best Jack n Coke!

Not in mi barrio, ese.  Compro 1.5L Jarritos all the time.

Come to think of it, there's plenty of 'Merkin soda with sugar now, too.  Sierra Mist was the last one I had that was using regular old "sucrose" sugar.  It was even part of the advertising.

Perhaps he should saunter over to the NYFED and clean up the obese obscene fat asses there. Bloomie missed his calling. If he was born 90 years earlier, he could have been the only Jewish Gestapo officer in the Reich.

“With stunning insouciance, Americans have given up the rule of law that protected their liberty. The silence of law schools and bar associations indicates that the age of liberty has passed. In short, the American people support tyranny. And that’s where they are headed.”

- John Craig Roberts was the under-secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration

If you rely on the government to protect you, who will protect you from the government.

Mike Bloomberg is the ultimate John Galt.  Self-made and self-assured, he strides the globe like a giant.  He is morally superior to you because his wealth is tallied in the billions.   He bought the mayoralty and he owns it.  Welcome to the libertarian paradise of New York City.

I take it you never read the book.

John Galt swore by his own life and his love of it that he would not ask another man to live for his (Galt's own) sake.
