Soda Response III

Boomberg’s pet health board has approved the Soda Ban.  Somehow I’m not surprised.  However I found something even more interesting than Bloomberg’s galactic nanny state ego.  Check out the very first line of the article:

Seeking to reduce runaway obesity rates, the New York City Board of Health on Thursday approved a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, street carts and movie theaters, the first restriction of its kind in the country.

That’s interesting because I grew up in a foreign country called America.  I was taught that there are three branches of government; legislative (which make the laws), executive (which enforces the laws), and judicial (which interprets the laws).  Most state governments follow suit and the concept is supposed to trickle all the way down to little insignificant  jurisdictions like Bloomberg’s playpen.

The funny thing is that I don’t recall ever hearing about the fourth and unstoppable branch of government called the Board of Health.  I’m pretty sure I’d have remembered Board of Health if they had Constitutional (or State) authority over what I eat for lunch.

I guess it just goes to show; we have empirical evidence that the people who live in New York City are lardasses and lesser beings who cannot think clearly enough to feed themselves.  It’s a wonder they’re allowed to walk the streets lest they get lost and start crying.  Kudos to the unelected Board of Health for controlling the subjects of Gotham as they mismanage their little childlike lives.  Also to King Bloomberg for improvising when the voluntary actions of free citizens might hinder his unquestionably superior world view.

We hold these truths to be self… What? They’re drinking LARGE sodas? Screw that! Forget the Revolution and have the King’s Health Board and straighten this shit out!

I already mentioned this in June:

Hat tip to Days of our Trailers.

P.S.  The City of New York is in debt for $73.5 Billion or $8,763 per New Yorker.  Nothing to see here.  Move along.

    Thank you for your posts, by the way. I don’t usually comment; they seem perfectly self contained. But I do enjoy them.

  2. I almost called my site Soda Pop Culture (it was taken). Would posts with more than 100 characters have been blocked in New York?

  3. When I first saw heard about this “cup-size control” I sat, with my mouth just hanging open, thinking that I must have misunderstood. Telling me what size of soda I was able to purchase….WAS I ALL OF A SUDDEN LIVING IN NORTH KOREA OR SOMETHING? I was ENRAGED!!! If the unknown branch of government, aka The Board of Health, where is the ruling on breast “cup-size control”? We must not let anyone have over a D-cup, since it is known to cause back problems. I don’t see anyone putting a limit on the size of alcohol you can by in a liquor store? Just saying…
