Nanny Bloomberg Is Aiming at the Wrong Culprit

Lew Rockwell Blog [1]
March 12, 2013

In response to Nanny Bloomberg’s defeat on the “soda ban,” [2] Bob Gentile writes,

“This guy offends me on so many levels I just don’t know where to start.  But for now I’ll say every time this moron (I don’t care how much money he’s made —  although I wonder how he was able to do it*) says ‘sugary drinks’, I go crazy.We consumers should only be so lucky that soft drinks contained sugar.  … Gee, Mr. Mayor, did you ever look at  the chart on obesity?  Funny, if you chart obesity and chart the use of HFCS [high fructose corn syrup]  you’ll see a stunning parallel.  But why quibble about facts?” With further brilliance, Mr. Gentile points out that the misuse of the term “sugary drinks” is much like that of the word “democracy”: “The morons refer to America as a  ‘democracy’, yet the word can’t be found in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, or Bill of Rights.”

*Pssst, Bob: I haven’t researched Nanny’s fortune, but I daresay if I did, I’d find every sort of subsidy and exploitation of the State’s power to keep competitors at bay and stifle freedom of contract, etc.
