Nanny State outrage: Bloomberg wants to ban large sodas, what will Bloomberg ban next?


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?

Banning foods to fight obesity is like openly saying (without saying it) that you dislike seeing overweight people in public #NannyBloomberg

Clearly #NannyBloomberg is uncomfortable seeing obese people and he can't ban them.

Twitter is still outraged today.

I will give my money 2 any establishment that violates this. RT @nytimes: Bloomberg Plans a Ban on Large Sugared Drinks

In the '80s, Mike Bloomberg was the mayor of that town in "Footloose" but was impeached for being too restrictive.

True, it's gone from "Let Them Eat Cake!" to "Forbid Them Cake!" but Bloomberg getting this involved is nonetheless, sickening.

Hey Mayor Bloomberg, howzabout a Height Requirement to get into Manhattan?

I am entering Bloomberg's New York on a diplomatic mission for the Venti Liberation Organization: we just want a three-size solution.

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!

If the war on drugs has taught us anything, it's that banning substances from the consumer always stops its consumption. #nannybloomberg

@bdomenech @philipaklein So by clever deduction, I'm willing to guess #NannyBloomberg takes a latte these days.

For lunch today I think I'll go buy 3 medium size sugary drinks… #NannyBloomberg

Hey NYC why don't you ban #NannyBloomberg ?

— Joy (@Chahta_Ishki) May 31, 2012

Now this would be awesome.

I'm from New Jersey. The Bloomberg beverage ban will end with Jersey guys lining the shore and taunting New Yorkers with Big Gulps.

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.
