New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg has never been one to shy away from political controversy and constitutional over stepping. He has used $100,000 of city money to send NYC police to Arizona gun shows, has banned large sodas from NYC, supported racist campaigns against African Americans, fingerprinted the poor, encouraged forced breast feeding, sent $250,000 to encourage abortions, and has possibly illegally purchased guns that he denies to law abiding citizens. But now, right before his term as the 108th Mayor of NYC comes to an end, he has decided to use his executive privilege to ban buffets in the city.
Buffets are restaurants that charge one flat price and allow its patrons to eat as much as they wish. Bloomberg has fought a personal war against over weight people for the last year. It was a year ago that he denied freedom loving Americans their constitutional right to sodas and colas in large cups, by limiting the size to only 16 ounces.
But now the outgoing mayor is blatantly trying to ruin businesses such as Golden Corral and Ryan’s, and countless local Chinese Buffets, by running them out of business. Bloomberg is a business man himself but has no problem it seems, ruining these businesses and preventing them from freely operating in the Free Market.
We managed to reach Duan Johnson, General Manager of the Times Square Golden Corral, who had this to say:
“I can’t believe he is doing this! I don’t know what we are going to do. There simply isn’t enough time to do anything about it. Corporate says to shut down. How do I tell 30 something employees that they are fired? “
Bloomberg is supposedly a liberal, aren’t liberals supposed to
be accepting of all kinds of people? But why does he hate fat people so much? Why is Bloomberg waging this war against fat people? He is the biggest loser here.
Bloomberg told The New York Times, “Obesity is a nationwide problem, and all over the United States, public health officials are wringing their hands saying, ‘Oh, this is terrible.’ New York City is not about wringing your hands; it’s about doing something. I think that’s what the public wants the mayor to do,” last week.
Luckily this man will soon enough be removed from office and hopefully a more moderate and sane voice will be in the Mayors office. The new law is set to go into effect on October 15th.
