Bloomberg Plans to Ban Styrofoam

Salt, soda, cigarettes, firearms, trans fats, baby formula — next up for suppression by the parody of a totalitarian tyrant who passes for Mayor of NYC: Styrofoam.

Bloomberg plans to use part of his Thursday State of the City address to push for a ban on Styrofoam food packaging. …

“One product that is virtually impossible to recycle and never bio-degrades is Styrofoam … something that we know is environmentally destructive and that may be hazardous to our health, that is costing taxpayers money and that we can easily do without, and is something that should go the way of lead paint,” Bloomberg will say, according to excerpts of the speech obtained by The Associated Press.

He said his administration would work with the City Council to ban Styrofoam food packaging from stores and restaurants.

Styrofoam, a.k.a. polystyrene foam, is one of the great wonders of modern technology that we have come to take for granted. It is used for packaging, and is especially useful for lightweight containers that retain heat.

Coming next: a ban on plastic. Or maybe the transistor. Or radial tires. Or the color orange. Who knows?

New Yorkers will now pay more for takeout food that doesn’t stay warm so that Bloomberg can congratulate himself on making their world a little less free. The rest of the country will have to deal with supplying products to its largest city in the face of bizarre restrictions that pile up by the day.

The most maniacally totalitarian tyrant since Pol Pot.

    Completely off topic, but exactly how many UNARMED innocent bystanders where shot by trigger-happy LAPD trying to find that LL Cool J look-alike Dorner?

    Also, have these Keystone Kops found any remains in the burned-out cabin? Have they done DNA analysis to see if it really is Dorner? I think the psycho IS STILL ALIVE.

    I’ve had moonbats get all uptight after I brought styrofoam and (gasp) clear plastic drinking cups to work for the watercooler. Apparently only the paper kind are PC. Wait — doesn’t paper come from…. (wait for it)…. gasp! trees?! I guess the eeeeeevil lumber industry is ok now; funny how I don’t remember it being so.

    NYC’s Queen is totally out of control. He is the epitome of elitist arrogance. Either you live as he says you must, or he’ll tax you into submission. He would’ve been perfect in the Berlin of the late 30′s.

    Furthermore, the environmentalists argue that the plastic does not degrade in landfills is flawed by the fact that nothing degrades in a landfill. Landfills are too tightly packed for anything to degrade as rotting requires oxygen to occur. This also explains why paper, the Styrofoam cup’s main and supposedly environmentally sounder competitor, can be found intact and readable after decades deep in a landfill. You have to ask yourself, how can a paper cup be safer than a foam one if its’ production creates waste water with 40 times more contaminants?

    I hate water from paper cups, especially those cone-shaped one you can’t even set down.

    Clear sturdy plastic is my favorite, foam less so cause they are often a bit wobbly in the hand.

    Paper is the absolute worst.

    Let’s hope the midget mayor will go the way of lead paint really soon.By the way,he already tried to ban colors for guns,he says that anything other than blued guns might confuse his ossifers on the streets.Since they already shoot innocent people who don’t have any guns,you wonder just how much more confused they can get and still remember to breathe.At least they’ll still support little bloomie.
