Look at the bright side, New Yorkers. You may have a communist mayor now, but at least with the maniacal nanny statist Michael Bloomberg gone, you don’t have to worry about the mayor telling you how large a cup you can drink soda out of. After all, not even Stalin himself… oh wait:
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this week his administration will pick up where former mayor Michael Bloomberg left off and will continue the battle to ban sodas larger than 16 ounces. The city will appeal a state court ruling that axed the ban last year. …
The much-discussed ban on sodas over 16 ounces was an edict issued by the city’s Health Department and never got approval from city council. A state judge in March 2013 blocked the ban and said Bloomberg overstepped his authority in issuing it without the city council’s consent.
But now city lawyers are on the case, making sure New Yorkers are safe from 20-oz sodas.
Liberalism works like a ratchet, so that tyranny can only be tightened, never loosened. So long as liberals remain in power, every liberty that comes under attack will remain under attack until it has been eradicated, right down to the freedom to choose what size cup you want to drink from.
