NYC Mayor Bloomberg: Government has right to ‘infringe on your freedom’

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...ght-infringe-/


Quote:
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.

“I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth.

“We think the judge was just clearly wrong on this,” he said, on NBC. “Our Department of Health has the legal ability to do this. … [They’re] not banning anything.”

Mr. Bloomberg’s remaining months in office have included a firestorm of regulations and policy pushes on wide range of issues. Aside from the soda size ban and a well-publicized call for tighter gun control, another contentious policy he pushed: Nudging hospitals to lock up baby formula to force mothers to breast-feed newborns.

He should buy some shoes to the homeless in NY instead of putting his nose in the life of the people. He is a feudalist, the guillotine should be re-instated

That might be going a little to far. Sending him to a nice nice retirement home at the next election would be entirely fair.

Thank God I don't live in any of those liberal places. It bad enough here to to keep my blood pressure up.

Sometimes the courts do know best, Mr. Bloomberg.
I do think there are certain times the court should infringe on your obnoxious hunger for power.
